Here’s Impact in case you missed it:
From The Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky:
Hosted by “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash.
Destination X 2013 begins with TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray voicing his disgust on defending the title against Chris Sabin. He vowed that Sabin will never become World Champion, and called out his “wife”, the Executive In Charge of the Knockouts Brooke Hogan. Brooke told Bully to move on, and Bully told her that she will move on when he says so. Her father, TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan appeared and told Bully “Enough is enough”, and walked off with Brooke. Bully was furious and The Main Event Mafia (TNA Hall of Famer “The Icon” Sting, Kurt Angle, Magnus, Samoa Joe and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson) appeared on the giant screen to inform Bully that Sabin will have a fair fight.

They fought until two referees tried to stop it.
