Here’s  Impact  in  case  you  missed  it:

From  The  Cincinnati  Gardens  Arena  in  Cincinnati,  Ohio:

Hosted  by  “The  Professor”  Mike  Tenay  and  Taz.

Former  TNA  World  Tag  Team  Champion  Adam  “Pac  Man”  Jones  and  DeQuin  Evans  of  the  NFL’s  Cincinnati  Bengals  were  in  attendance.

The  Main  Event  Mafia  (TNA  Hall  of  Famer  “The  Icon”  Sting,  Kurt  Angle,  Magnus  and  Samoa  Joe)  open  this  week  as  Sting  was  happy  with  a  weakened  Aces  and  Eights  (Bully  Ray,  Mike  Knox  and  Garett  Bischoff),  but  decided  to  leave.  He  stated  that  all  of  the  Mafia  members  are  being  pulled  in  different  directions,  and  that  he  himself  has  waged  war  on  the  entitled.  Samoa  Joe  vowed  to  win  back  the  TNA  World  Heavyweight  Champion.  Magnus  stated  that  while  Kurt  Angle  is  on  the  road  to  redemption,  he’s  on  the  road  to  destiny.  Kurt  agreed  with  Sting  about  the  guys  following  their  own  paths,  and  he  vowed  to  prove  that  he  is  worthy  of  being  a  Hall  of  Famer.

He  was  interrupted  by  Bobby  Roode,  who  vowed  that  if  both  he  and  Kurt  made  it  to  the  end  of  the  Eight-Man  Tournament,  he  will  defeat  Kurt  for  a  third  time.  Kurt  refused  to  wait,  and  wailed  on  Roode.  After  TNA  Referees  and  Security  ended  the  fight,  Kurt  demanded  that  Roode  return  to  the  ring  and  face  him!!!  Another  fight  ensued  as  the  referees  and  security,  along  with  Al  Snow,  “Irish”  Pat  Kenney  (Simon  Diamond),  Magnus,  Samoa  Joe   and  Bad  Influence  (Christopher  Daniels  and  Kazarian)  fought  to  keep  them  separated.  After  the  melee  was  stopped,  Bad  Influence  antagonized  both  Jones  and  Evans  and  pushed  them.

Jones  and  Evans  then  jumped  over  the  barricade  and  bodyslammed  Bad  Influence!!!

1.  A  #1  CONTENDER’S  KNOCKOUTS  MATCH:  Velvet  Sky  vs.  Brooke  Tessmacher  vs.  ODB.

THE  REWARD:  The  winner  will  face  Gail  Kim  for  the  TNA  Knockouts  Championship.

THIS  MATCH  WAS  A  NO  CONTEST,  COURTESY  OF  GAIL  KIM  AND  LEI’D  TAPA.

After  the  ruling,  Gail  Kim  stated  that  she  has  no  competition,  and  issued  an  open  challenge  to  any  female  wrestler  outside  of  TNA,  with   a  shot  at  the  belt  if  she  is  defeated.

In  a  segment  called  Friends  of  A.J.,  TNA  World  Heavweight  Champion  “The  Phenomenal”  A.J.  Styles  sent  a  clip  of  him  defending  the  title  in  Mexico’s  Lucha  Libre  promotion  AAA  (Asistencia,  Asesoria  y  Administracion/Assistance,  Administration  and  Counseling).

Mike  Knox  and  Garett  Bischoff  summoned  Bully  Ray  to  do  an  in-ring  vote  on  the  future  of  Aces  and  Eights.  Garett  labeled  Bully  poison,  and  as  the  vote  was  about  to  be  cast,  Mr.  Anderson  appeared  to  observe.  Garett  cast  the  first  vote,  and  threw  off  his  vest!!!  So  did  Knox  and  Taz!!!  Bully  demanded  that  Taz  put  his  vest  back  on,  but  he  refused.  He  told  him  again,  and  Taz  was  ready  to  fight!!!

Bully  blamed  Anderson  for  everything,  and  Anderson  challenged  him  to  a  No Disqualification  Match  in  two  weeks!!!  Knox  and  Garett  then  attacked  Anderson  from  behind,  as  it  turned  out  to  be  a  prank  that  was  played  by  Bully,  Knox,  Garett  and  Taz.

Before  the  start  of  the  next  match,  Bobby  Roode  demanded  that  Kurt  Angle  face  him.

THE  WINNERS:  BAD  INFLUENCE.

Kurt  Angle  accepted  Roode’s  challenge,  but  Austin  Aries  appeared  instead  to  tell  Kurt  that  he  will  face  him,  not  Roode  next  week.  TNA  President  Dixie  Carter  booked  them  both  in  a  Submission  Match.  Roode  and  Kurt  went  at  it,  and  Aries  joined  in.

4.  A  FIRST  ROUND,  EIGHT-MAN  TNA  WORLD  HEAVYWEIGHT  CHAMPIONSHIP  TOURNAMENT,  FULL  METAL  MAYHEM  MAIN  EVENT:  Jeff  Hardy  vs.  TNA  X  Division  Champion  Chris  Sabin.

Velvet  Sky,  Brooke  Tessmacher,  ODB,  Jeff  Hardy  and  Chris  Sabin  are  the  wrestlers  of  the  night!!!

ANALYSIS:  It  seemed  like  this  week  was  all  about  Kurt  Angle  vs.  Bobby  Roode.
