Here’s Impact in case you missed it:
From Universal Studios Orlando in Orlando, Florida:
Hosted by “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Taz.
Magnus began this week’s broadcast by making a speech about how much he loves TNA, professional wrestling, and how fortunate he is to be in the United States. But, he wondered why Jeff Hardy decided to have dinner with TNA President Dixie Carter at the end of last week’s show. He infuriated Hardy by mentioning what happened at Bound For Glory 2010 (Remember that?).
1. A BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH: Kurt Angle vs. Bobby Roode.
THE WINNER OF THE FIRST FALL: BOBBY ROODE.
THE WINNER OF THE SECOND FALL: KURT ANGLE!!!
THE WINNER: BOBBY ROODE.
THE 2013 FEAST OR FIRED RESULTS.
Eric Young summoned Joseph Park, and led everyone in saying, “You are Abyss!”. Joseph defended himself by saying “I am Joseph Park!”, but Eric stated that making him see his own blood last week was part of an experiment. Eric also told him that he booked him in a Monster’s Ball Match against Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels and Kazarian) next week. Joseph declined because it’s his brother’s match. Eric continued the experiment by pulling out three gifts: a steel chair, a bag of thumbtacks and barb wire.
Joseph still refused to participate, until Eric told him to look under the ring for the last gift: a nail-covered two-by-four. He held it and said “All right EY, I’ll do it!”.
TNA President Dixie Carter and Jeremy Borash observed the fates of last week’s winners.

TNA Hall of Famer “The Icon” Sting was disgusted by what had happened, and told Ethan and Dixie “It’s the end for the both of you!”. He also told Dixie “You disgust me!”.

3. THE MAIN EVENT FINAL OF THE 8-MAN WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT: DIXIELAND: Jeff Hardy vs. Magnus.
Before the start of the match, Hardy stated that during the dinner with Dixie, she offered him a massive amount of money and lifetime contracts. He told her that no one owns him his fans, known as The Creatures. He also stated that when he wins, he will defend the title like “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles did, and will represent TNA on his own. Dixie was outraged, and told him that the fans turned on him, and that he needs her more than she needs him.
THE RULES OF DIXIELAND: The first to leave the steel cage must head to the ladder on the stage, climb it, and pull down the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
THE WINNER, AND NEW, TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: MAGNUS!!!
Match #1 and the main event are the highlight matches of the night!!!
Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Magnus and Jeff Hardy are the wrestlers of the night!!!
Magnus becoming World Champion and the return of Madison Rayne are the highlights of the night!!!
