Here’s Impact in case you missed it:
From The IMPACT Zone at Universal Studios Orlando in Orlando, Florida:
Hosted by Todd Keneley and “The Professor” Mike Tenay.
Bully Ray vented his frustration on everything Aces and Eights has done, but directs his frustration towards his ex-tag team partner, TNA Television Champion Devon, and vowed that Devon will never set foot in a wrestling ring again after he gets to him. Bully welcomed back his Lockdown opponent TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy. He told Hardy that he didn’t feel that he is the right guy to face him, but Hardy is happy with TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan’s choice. After Hardy’s admisission, Bad Influence (“The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels and Kazarian) arrived and told Bully that he doesn’t deserve a title shot. Bully took Daniels’ appletini, drank it, spat it back into the glass and said. “Hey baldie! Real men don’t drink appletinis!”. Both he and Hardy then assaulted Bad Influence, and challenged them to a tag team match!!!
