Here’s Impact in case you missed it:
From The Arkansas State University Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas:
Hosted by Todd Keneley, “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Taz.
This week begins with Aces and Eights, minus TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray. They’re still extending their offer to “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles to join them, and announced that they have an envelope that will forever change the marriage between Bully and the Executive In Charge of the Knockouts Brooke Hogan. D-Lo Brown complains about an envelope that TNA Management sent him stating that he was fired. He demanded that a TNA official says it to his face. Kurt Angle appeared to deliver his own message, and tackled D-Lo!!! The rest of Aces and Eights ganged up on Kurt until Magnus, Samoa Joe, Eric Young and Joseph Park arrived to fight them until they escaped.
1. A KNOCKOUTS TAG TEAM MATCH: Gail Kim and Tara with Jesse vs. Taryn Terrell and TNA Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky.
THE SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE FOR THIS MATCH: Joey Ryan.
THE WINNERS: GAIL KIM AND TARA.
Joey Ryan spent much of the match trying to hit on Gail Kim, Tara, Velvet Sky and Taryn Terrell. After the match, Velvet and Taryn decided to give into Ryan’s advances, but played an April Fool’s prank by low-blowing him!!!
Jeremy Borash presided over a contract signing between the reigning TNA World Tag Team Champions Austin Aries and Bobby Roode, and their opponents, the former champions Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero, Jr. The contract is for their championship match next week. Both sides added a lot of stipulations, which led to the match being a Best 2 out of 3 Falls match, and if Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero, Jr. lose, they must disband and never team-up again.
2. TNA GUT CHECK: “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce vs. Magno.
Magno first appeared on TNA programming in 2006 as a member of Team Mexico for The World X Cup.
“Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce is a 17-year veteran, and a 35-year-old husband and father of two children (a son and a daughter).
THE WINNER: “SCRAP IRON” ADAM PEARCE.
TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan called out A.J. and noticed the Aces and Eights vest in his hand. Hulk wanted to know if A.J. is on TNA’s side. He told him that he went down a similar path in his personal life, and reminded him that TNA is his home. Hulk also told him that he is needed in the war against Aces and Eights. A.J. asked, “Yo want me to help you?” and Hulk responded “Yes!”. “Cowboy” James Storm appeared and mentioned how he was the one who defeated him in the tournament last year to earn a shot at the TNA World title.
He reminded him that it was the both of them who helped build TNA, and wondered if he turned his back on the company. He told him “You better clock out, or get knocked out!”. A.J. left the ring while looking at the vest. During the commercial break, Hulk announced that A.J. has one week to make a decision, or he’s done!!!
3. AN X DIVISION THREE-WAY QUALIFYING MATCH: Sonjay Dutt vs. Mason Andrews vs. The Returning “Canadian Destroyer” Petey Williams.
THE WINNER: THE RETURNING “CANDAIAN DESTROYER” PETEY WILLIAMS!!!
4. A 10-MAN TAG TEAM MAIN EVENT: Aces and Eights (TNA Television Champion Devon, D.O.C., Mike Knox, Wes Brisco and Garett Bischoff) vs. Kurt Angle, Magnus, Samoa Joe, TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion “Showtime”, Eric Young and Joseph Park.
THE WINNERS: ACES AND EIGHTS.
After the main event, Bully Ray finally arrived and labeled Jeff Hardy stupid for making next week’s title fight a Full Metal Mayhem Match. He then called out Brooke Hogan, and labeled her insane because she wasn’t happy for him when he won the title last month at Lockdown. He revealed that there were not divorce papers inside the envelope, but two front row seats for next week. He wants her there when he defeats Hardy, and told her to look her best, because she let herself go. Brooke tore up the tickets and slapped Bully!!! It looked like Bully was going to attack her until Hardy arrived and fought him.
Matches 3 and 4 are the highlight matches of the night!!!!!
Sonjay Dutt, Mason Andrews, Petey Williams, Kurt Angle, Devon and D.O.C. are the wrestlers of the night!!!!!!
The return of Petey Williams was the highlight of the night!!!!!!
ANALYSIS: I can’t wait until next week!!!!
TNA Impact Wrestling will be broadcasted live next week from The American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.
