The date is set for Hart’s debut, Thursday January 7 2010- three hour live special of TNA iMPACT!
TNA IMPACT! 2010
The show opens with Jeff Jarrett standing in the middle of the 6 sided ring. He cuts a promo about TNA. Building it up, the great talent, the fans and the global phenomenon that is TNA. He thanks everyone says that this isn’t the Hitman era, this is Total Non Stop Action 2010- The future is now….
Pyro goes off and Impact begins <opening credits>
The pyro continues to explode as Mike Tenay and Don West welcome everyone to TNA 2010.
Tenay: Bret Hart, one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, has signed as Dixie Carter’s partner to reintroduce the world to pro-wrestling and taking it into the future starting right here tonight on the first edition of Impact! for 2010.
Generation Me (Max and Jeremy Jackson) vs.
The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) vs.
Speed Muscle (Masato Yoshino and Naruki Doi) vs.
NEO - 1 - GT (Paul London and Brian Kendrick)
Finish: Max sommersaults from the apron onto Kendrick to take him out while Jeremy sets for the superkick, only to be hit with a flying thrust kick from Shelley. Sabin grabs the down Yoshino and sets him for the double team, but he bursts out and bounces off the ropes and hits a flying knee strike into Sabin’s jaw. He turns though into a slice bread from Shelley running up London in the process, kicking him out of the ring in the process and Shelley gets the pin 1.2.3!
Winner via pinfall The Motor City Machine Guns at 11:24
The Guns jump to the turnbuckles playing to the crowd as the competitors walk off. The Guns celebrate with the impact zone as Tenay and West go to the replay of the amazing super faced paced match that everyone just witnessed.
Suddenly the music of the Heavyweight Champion of the World plays and in a shower of sparks out walks AJ. Styles. He applauds the Machine Guns as he walks down to the ring. The shows the belt to the crowd hitting his Phenomenal pose to every side of the TNA ring.
Styles says TNA will move onward and upward. He has been talking with Bret Hart about kicking off the new era with tonight putting up the world title. But not just in any match in a 3 way dance. He says that with Bret Hart, Jeff Jarrett, Mick Foley and Dixie Carter’s help he has put together a match that will be talked about for years and take TNA into the future. It is his honour and his privilege to be the one to reintroduce to the fans his opponents tonight. He introduces his first opponent, as the former 4 time IWGP Champion, the Ace of the Universe, Japan’s and possibly the World’s best pro-wrestler- Hiroshi Tanahashi. Tanahashi returns to TNA and jumps on the turnbuckles and soaking in the chants. He flips around and shakes Styles’ hand and points at the TNA World title. Tanahashi’s music dies down and Styles then states,
Styles: “And a man who is returning to TNA, the former WWE Champion the Charismatic Enigma, Jeff Hardy. The crowd explodes, Hardy jumps on all the turnbuckles claps hands with the fans he shakes hands with Styles, taps the title but steals the mic…
Hardy: “I’m back TNA!”
Hardy chant starts. He says he is honoured that TNA management has given him a title shot here tonight against the World Champion and the best in Japan maybe even the World Hiroshi Tanahashi..
Hardy continues: “Just know this, I’m going to come at you both with everything I’ve got… I’m here to stay in TNA!!!”
Styles: “Welcome to TNA, good luck because you are both going to need it. (turns to the fans) Welcome to a new era, welcome to TNA 2010.”
Don West and Mike Tenay cannot believe what the main event will be tonight for the World Championship!!! Champion AJ Styles defends against Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jeff Hardy. They then send it to the back…
Backstage JB and Christy Hemme are outside Bret Hart’s room and say that Bret The Hitman Hart will address TNA at the top of the hour!
TNA X Division Championship.
Champion Amazing Red vs. The Pope DiAngelo Dinero
Finish: Red has Pope down and sprints up the turnbuckles and hits the infra-red. But Pope gets his foot on the ropes. Red gets frustrated as Pope falls out to the floor and tries to compose himself. Red goes for a suicide dive but Pope sidesteps Red and even pushes him headfirst into the steel guardrail! Pope throws Red back in and gets a two count. Pope hits a suplex on Red but he is so close to a corner turnbuckle Red is mangled, neck, head, back everything goes into the corner with the momentum. Pope pulls down the knee guards and delivers the DDE and covers Red. 1.2.3 Pope wins!
Winner via pinfall and NEW X Division Champion, The Pope DiAngleo Dinero in 8:47. Tenay and West cover the replay of the match as the Pope celebrates with his congregation!
Backstage Christy interviews the KO Champion Tara for her match with ODB. Tara simply says that tonight she will beat ODB to a pulp and show her why she is the Champ.
Lumber Jill match for the KnockOut Championship
Champion Tara vs. ODB
All the Knockouts come (quickly) out to their entrances. The Beautiful people try to steal the spotlight with their entrance of course. Awesome Kong is obviously still angry about not being in this title match. But the last Knockout to appear is the return of Gail Kim! The camera goes to Kong and she is livid at seeing her old nemesis back in TNA! Kim sees Kong and the two lock eyes as the challenger and Champion make their way to the ring.
Finish: As ODB and Tara exchange moves, Kong and Kim continually get closer and closer until they are finally eye to eye. Alyssa Flash though pushes Gail into Kong… Kong explodes and starts hammering away on her old enemy. Suddenly ringside is a huge Konockout brawl as the lumber jills are fighting and even enter the ring. The referees try to restore order as a Championship match is still going on. Hamada moonsaults into several KO’s knocking them out but then Sarita flies high and knocks even more KO’s down! Kong throws Kim into the guard rail, and TBP jump into the ring and attack champion and challenger, but they are thrown over the top quickly by both women, only to have Tara clothesline ODB and hit the widow’s peak for the cover. 1.2.3. Tara retains!
Winner via pinfall and STILL Knockout Champion Tara at 5:15
Tenay and West cannot believe the mayhem caused by all the knockouts and security and referees have to put an end to it. Tara holds the belt up high as she walks up the ramp victorious amongst all the chaos.
Backstage The new X Division Champion, The Pope is interviewed by Christy. Pope says that tonight he celebrates his big victory over Red and becoming a champion only a few months into being here in TNA. It just shows how great the Pope truly is. Pope then invites Christy to his celebratory after party, because the Pope is pimpin’
Christy than hands it over to JB, who is standing by with the World Tag Team Champions, the British Invasion. The Brits are not very happy about having to having to defend their titles tonight. But never the less they will of course show the wrestling world of their prowess and gentlemanly ways by once again walking out Tag Team Champions of the World.
Mick Foley walks down to the ring and introduces Bret “The Hitman” Hart! Hart stands in the ring.
Hart: “Thanks you and I am so happy to finally be here in the impact zone. Over the next few months, weeks, days and even hours and minutes you will all see some of the signings, the matches and the changes I have introduced to make TNA, THE Pro-wrestling company in the world. I don’t want TNA to be the top Sports entertainment company. My vision is TNA will be the best wrestling company in the world. Tonight all the Championships will be on the line!*
“I have been in the back watching 3 brilliant wrestling matches and the best is still to come in our Main Event. The very best, against the very best. The World Champion AJ Styles defends against the very best Tanahashi and Hardy!”
But suddenly Bret Hart is interrupted by Kurt Angle’s music. It’s a n amazing moment as these two giants of the sport, the very best wrestlers of all time stand eye to eye in the middle of the 6 sided ring. Kurt has a mic:
Angle: “Did I just hear you say the best against the best. If that was the case you would have put me, Kurt Angle into tonight’s main event for the TNA title. But no, you decided to go with Hardy and Tanahashi. We have never met Hitman, but AS usual, your famously and loosely throwing around the phrase “the best”! You see you aren’t the best there was, is and ever will be… I am. I am the greatest wrestler that ever lived. And I demand you put me in that match tonight.”
Hart looks at Angle and tells him “No. You don’t demand anything. You will not be in the main event tonight. Tonight is the future of TNA. But I tell you what Mr. Angle, you are at the top of the tree you, are the big dog around here. But unless you have that Gold belt around your waist than you cannot call yourself the best. So I tell you what, next week you will be in the main event and you will be wrestling in a match to be the number one contender against this man…”
Hart points to the stage and out walks the whole Dam show, Rob Van Dam. Kurt can’t believe it as Hart smiles and RVD pumps up the crowd. Tenay and West hype up a number 1 contender match between Kurt Angle and Rob Van Dam for next week’s Impact!
World Tag Team Championship match
Champions The British Invasion (Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams) vs. Beer Money Inc. (James Storm and Robert Roode)
Finish: James Storm hits the Last Call super kick on Williams, which turns him to the payoff fisherman suplex from Roode. Brutus makes the save at two with a double arm sledge and throws Roode shoulder first into the ring post. While the ref checks Roode, Rob Terry pulls Storm off the apron back first into the guard rail. Roode is then hit with Chaos Theory and then rolled up with a hand full of tights .1.2.3. The Champions retain.
Winners by pinfall and STILL Tag Team Champions of the World, the British Invasion in 9:15
Tenay and West talk about the Brits retaining the titles.
West: They did it again Mike. Well the next match that the Hitman set up for tonight is going to be a war.
Tenay: The man who fought Kurt Angle at BFG and the man who has been taking the Olympic Gold medalist apart for the last few months will collide here tonight.
West: The Blueprint Matt Morgan versus Desmond Wolfe is going to be a war.
<A video package of each man destroying their opponents.>
Desmond Wolfe vs Matt Morgan
Finish: Morgan is irish whipped into the corner and Wolfe runs at the opposite turnbuckle leaps off the first rope to get more spring and sprints back at Morgan, but the big man launches himself and hits Wolfe with the carbon foot print. Morgan goes for the cover but Wolfe gets his foot onto the ropes for the ref to break the count at 2. Morgan calls for the Hellavator to finish the match but as he sends Wolfe up, the move is countered into a ddt. Morgan tries to get to his feet quickly shaking it off only to almost being beheaded by a vicious lariat. Morgan kicks out of the cover at 2! A frustrated Wolfe swings on the middle rope to get more momentum and when Morgan gets to his feet again is smashed again by another lariat. Wolfe locks in the arm/elbow submission the London Dungeon and Matt has to tap out. Wolfe defeats the Blueprint in a brutal match.
Winner via submission, Desmond Wolfe in 10:56
Wolfe gets his hand raised, but then walks over to the hurt Morgan and slaps his face. Wolfe quickly jumps out of the ring and taunts Morgan and gives him and the fans the forks.
Backstage JB is with Bret Hart and the World Champion AJ Styles.
Hart: “AJ, I’m a big fan of yours and love the fact that you are a fighting champion and want to put your title on the line against the very best in this business for the fans and to make TNA number 1.”
AJ: “Well TNA is going to the next level. We are wrestling, we are the future Bret. You, Hardy, Tanahashi and the fans will see the best from AJ Styles tonight and it will be simply phenomenal!”
Tenay and West hype the main event again, with a video package on what the three men are capable of…
But out to the ring comes Raven, Dr. Stevie and Daffney.
Raven: “So everyone is saying that tonight marks the future, the future is now and so on. Well I’m here about the present. You see the darkness of my soul scratches at my brain like a cockroach trying to bust out of my skull. It tells me that this new era here in TNA is ripe for a little…chaos. But I know what will happen. It happened when Planet Jarrett tried to take over, it happened when James Mitchell unleashed Abyss onto TNA. And it will no doubt happen to me if I introduce my cancer into the foundations of TNA.
So I’ll stop him before he tries to stop me. The self appointed sheriff of TNA, the Icon Sting. Icon, you and your morals, your codes. I’m going to dance with you Icon until the impact zone crashing down on your head and chaos and anarchy rains down on TNA. I am a human cancer and I will rip you apart from the inside out Icon and when I’m finished with you that wont be make-up that covers your face. Then.. Icon. Then, the fun will really start, because when you are out of my way…TNA burns… Quote the Raven nevermore….”
Tenay: The new era in TNA seems to have, pardon the pun, lit a match under everyone here. And by the sounds of what Raven says the Stinger better be careful because, who knows what goes on in the sick and demented mind of Raven.
West: Sting’s not the only one that should be worried, Raven’s a psycho and crosses the line between wrestling to win and wrestling to really hurt someone.
Christopher Daniels and Scott Steiner vs. Samoa Joe and Abyss
Steiner grabs a mic and pushes the ref so he doesn’t sound the bell to start the match just yet.
Steiner: “Listen up sloppy Joe and you big retarded freak. I’ve got the largest arms in the world and the shortest fuse. I’m going kick you both so hard you’ll be flossing with my shoelaces. Now ref, start the damn match, and Daniels you start…”
Finish: Steiner is down in the corner and Joe delivers the third running face wash! Steiner is in deep trouble as Joe moves his thumb across his throat to signify the end. But from the tunnel emerges Father James Mitchell! He holds his hand up and says “Click…. Doomsday!” Abyss, screams, tears off his flannel shirt and blind sides Joe. He beats him down, whips him into the ropes and delivers the Blackhole slam on Joe. Mitchell throws Abyss a big heavy chain. The monster stands on Joe’s back and pulls the chain around Joe’s neck violently choking the Samoan submission machine.
Winner: no contest at 4:37
After the match: Security run past Mitchell and then jump in the ring to stop Abyss. Steiner leaves as he is still hurting, but Daniels looks on at Mitchell and Abyss and smiles. Security are thrown aside like flies by Abyss as he roars and raises his arms and makes a cross with his forearms. Mitchell laughs maniacally and raises his monster’s hand as Joe is face down on the mat unconscious.
Tenay and West commentate on the replay of James Mitchell’s return to TNA and Abyss turning on his tag partner Joe and almost killing him. JB is backstage and reports that EMT’s are looking at Joe’s throat now, and he will have to go to hospital.
Global Championship Match
Champion Eric Young (w/ Kiyoshi, Homicide and Bashir) vs. Hernandez
EY grabs a mic: “Bret Hart, you were my hero, I had such high hopes for you my Canadian brother. With you at the helm of TNA, the World Elite could not fail. We would take TNA to higher places never seen before. But you have decided to book me in a match with Hernandez, and to defend my title on U.S. soil. With such short notice my lawyers were unable to stop it from happening. So I brought my insurance policies, the World Elite to ensure I keep this belt around my waist. Bret Hart you will answer to me for this. Hitman, welcome to our world.
Finish: Hernadez is hit by Kiyoshi when the ref’s back was turned and EY sets Hernandez up for the pile driver. But because Kiyoshi is still on the ramp the ref turns his back again, and suddenly Homicide climbs the ropes and leaps into a gringo cutter to Young! He then in one motion hits the tope con helo knocking down Bashir and Kiyoshi!! Homicide gives West a high five as Hernandez hits the border toss! 1.2.3.
Winner via pinfall and NEW Global Champion Hernandez at 4:47
After the match: Cide and Dez hug and throw up LAX signs as they celebrate as on the outside World Elite can’t believe that they were betrayed by one of their own. EY is livid as Dez holds up the Global title!
Tenay: “Tonight has been the night of surprise returns as we just saw LAX coming back together, Tanahashi, , Gail Kim, James Mitchell, Speed Muscle, London and Kendrick and of course Jeff Hardy!!
West: Don’t forget the huge surprise debut of RVD, who will be facing The Olympic Gold medallist next week here on Impact! Now Mike we have already seen two titles change hands tonight. Will we see another? Both challengers are at the top of their game and you don’t have to pin the Champ to win the match!”
Tenay: As we have seen here tonight Don, anything is possible. Bret Hart has put together an amazing start to 2010.
Video package showcasing Hardy, Tanahashi and Styles
Bret Hart’s music hits and he comes down to commentate with Tenay and West.
TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match
Champion “The Phenomenal One” AJ Styles vs.
“Ace of the Universe” Hiroshi Tanahashi vs.
“The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy
The belt is held high by the ref, and all three men get ready to go to war to make TNA explode and do what Hart envisioned for the company. To be the very best wrestling company in the world!
Finish: Hiroshi climbs the turnbuckles and goes to deliver the high fly flow on the Champion, but Hardy climbs up and the two men battle on the third rope. Styles slowly gets to his feet and both look down. Tanahashi hits a flying sling blade, Styles is down, and then Hardy hits the senton bomb. He covers Styles but Tanahashi quickly makes the save. Hardy gets up but is hit with what seems like countless elbow strikes to the side of his head.
Hardy falls in a heap as the Ace of the Universe turns his attention to Styles. But the Champ delivers his patented nip up into a hurricarana sending Tanahashi to the floor. Hardy then kicks Styles in the gut, poses for the twist of fate but Styles escapes hits the pele from out of nowhere and as Hardy staggers Styles hits the Stylesclash! 1.2.3. Styles retains in a high octane, strong style/ high flying affair.
Winner via pinfall and STILL Champion AJ Styles in 19:10
After the match: Hart applauds Styles, as the Champion celebrates holding the belt high to finish the first TNA 2010 Impact!
This. Is. Awesome.
Infact, this is 100000000000000x better than what Hulk and Bisch have served up.
LAX back together. Pope as champ.
Scott Steiner's promo is great, funny, just like he would talk.
And Raven's promo? Just brilliant.
Can't wait for more, I'll be reading. Expect a proper review at some point off me, for sure.
Thanks guys! I guess I got sick of being in the TNA forum and whinging about how bad the product is, and just write down what direction I thought the company should go in. When WWE announced they had Bret, and TNA Hogan, I thought to myself it should have been the other way around. And so with Marvel having the ultimate universe I decided to just write it that way. I can't wait to read what the fan fic regulars thought of my first show.
My formatting sucks and my match writing skills are a little blah, but I'm trying to be the booker and just let the wrestlers do their thing so to speak. I hope everyone likes what I have done so far, but constructive criticism is very welcome.

TNA IMPACT 2010
The Impact Zone out walks the new partner of TNA, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. He looks out to the fans and grabs a mic.
Hart: Last week was a huge success and I want to thank all the Champions for putting their titles on the line to showcase what TNA is all about. I want to congratulate the new Champions- the new X division Champion, Diangelo Dinero and the new Global Champion Hernandez. I especially want to thank the World Champion AJ Styles for putting together and putting his title on the line against two of the very best in the world, Tanahashi and Jeff Hardy. A true fighting Champion and a great ambassador for TNA. Cngratulations on retaining your title AJ.
Tonight we will find out who will be the next contender to the World title when Kurt Angle faces off against Rob Van Dam!
Kurt Angle’s music hits and out comes the Olympic Gold medallist wearing a suit. He walks aound the ring snatches a mic and walks right into Hart’s face.
Angle: There you go again Hart. Talking about the Best, when the name Kurt Angle is not in the same sentence. I am the best, I am the greatest wrestler of all time. While you’ve been sitting on your ass at home for the last ten years I’ve been making people tap and winning World titles. From Steve Austin, to the Undertaker, to Brock Lensar, to Hulk Hogan to Samoa Joe to Abyss to Sting, to Yuji Nagata and even your precious World Champion AJ Styles. I’ve beaten them all. I am the best and you will give me the proper respect.
Hart: I respect you Kurt. I do think you are one of the greatest wrestlers to ever lace up the boots. The question is…. Do you respect yourself?
Angle: How dare you?!!? I’ll break you in half right here!
Hart: Kurt, I’ve got nothing left to prove. But it seems to me that you think that you do. Everyone from the boys in the back, to the fans know how good you are and how many championships you’ve won. It seems the only person you have to prove anything to…is yourself.
Angle: ….. I’m going to snap RVD’s ankle tonight. Then, I’ll go to Genesis and I’ll snap AJ Styles’ ankle . Win the World title. And then… and then Hart with the power I will get by being World Champion, we are going to have this conversation again.
Angle drops the mic and leaves Hart in the ring as we cross to Mike Tenay and Don West.
Tenay: Don, having the best and the greatest in TNA together at the same time, everyone should have known there was going to be fireworks.
West: Fireworks.. my goodness Mike, I’m thinking if someone doesn’t calm down Kurt soon, it could be World War 3!
Tenay: To the back with Jeremy Borash
-In the back JB welcomes back Jerry Lynn!
Lynn: Well it’s great to be back JB. You see a few weeks ago I’m at home and I get a phone call. I pick it up and I hear this voice say “Is this Jerry Lynn the X division Pioneer?” I say yes it is, and the voice says this is Bret Hart. Well JB I almost fell off my chair, as I knew, just like the rest of the wrestling world that Hart had become TNA’s new partner. Bret tells me that the X division pioneer will become an official title in TNA and wants me to return the X Division to its former glory in TNA 2010. So JB, here I am to put the total non-stop action back into TNA. Starting right now.
JB: Right now?
Lynn: Right now…
Petey Williams vs. Davey Richards vs. Mistico vs. Senshi
Tenay and West put over the returns of former X div Champions Petey Williams and Senshi as well as the huge debuts of independent and international stars Davey Richards and Mistico!!!
Finish: on the outside Richards and Senshi are exchanging the stiffest and most rutal kicks to each other’s bodies when suddenly Mistico take sboth men out with a moonsault from the ring to the floor. Mistico celebrates but it is short lived as Williams leaps over the top rope and delivers a frankensteiner. Williams rolls in a dazed Richards and hits the devastating Canadian destroyer! He goes for the cover but Senshi has made it to the top rope and delivers the double foot stomp. Williams is hit in the spine and rolls off Richards. Senshi makes the cover on Richards. 1.2.3.
Winner via pinfall Senshi at 7:05
Senshi roars in satisfaction as he looks down on what he has just done. Senshi is back!
In the back Christy Hemme is with the new X Division Champion The Pope, Diangelo Dinero.
Hemme: What an X division match Pope, as the new Champion you’ve got your work cut out for you.
Dinero: Tonight Christy is a celebration of the Pope becoming Champion of the X division. Tonight, in the middle of the ring, the Pope will have the most pimpin party to mark the start of Pope’s reign over the X division. So come along bring your friends, only the hot ones though, because Pope’s time is now and Pope is pimpin’
Alyssa Flash vs. Gail Kim
Replay of Flash pushing Gail into Kong which started a huge all in Knockout brawl last week. Flash enters the ring and laughs at what she started last week.
Finish: While Gail is in the corner, Flash hits several kicks to the side of the head while standing on the ropes. Gail falls to the ground and Flash grabs her by the hair and sets her up for a suplex. Gail floats down and schoolgirls Flash for the 3 count.
Winner: Gail Kim via pinfall at 4:39
Flash can’t believe it as she basically dominated the entire match. She looks over and attacks Kim post match. The ref tries to stop Flash but Kim fights back and sends her to the floor with elbow strikes., Kim exhausted drops to one knee as Kong’s music hits.
Down the ramp comes Kong and Kim stands ready. But Knockout Champion Tara runs out and attacks Kong. She shoves Kong into a turnbuckle face first and as Kim rolls out of the way, Tara reaches back on Kong and hits the widow’s peak! Kong is out as the Knockout Champion stands over her…
Tenay and West recap the prior events and amazed at how Tara took out Kong!
Backstage with JB is the World Elite’s Kiyoshi, Sheik Bashir and the former Global Champion Eric Young.
EY: First things first, Homicide you want to betray the World Elite, you have no idea what you have done. Not only did you stab us in the back but you stole the Global title from me and gave it to Hernandez?! You are a fool, I am going to enjoy taking you apart. As for Bret Hart who made the match in the first place. I am your Canadian brother. The World Elite’s agenda is similar to what yours was all those years ago. Now my lawyers have asked you nicely to overturn the match result due to Homicide’s interference. …
Into the shot walks Petey Williams with a towel around his neck.
Williams: Well look what we have here. Little scaredy cat Eric Young is all dressed up in big boys clothes. And look you’ve got yourself some friends too.
EY: I’m conducting an interview here Petey so why don’t you leave before the World Elite...
Williams: The World Elite. Well let me tell the World Elite something. Eric Young was a disgrace to Team Canada. We would have ruled the wresting world if it wasn’t for your bumbling. And now you want to lead a team. What a joke. How dare you talk down to Bret Hart. The Hitman is the reason us Canadians are known as the best in the world. Maybe you should think about that before you go around opening your mouth.
Williams walks off as EY is not happy
In the Impact Zone the border fence is up near the Spanish announce booth and the LAX music hits. Out of the LAX entrance once again comes the Latin American eXchange! Homicide, Hernandez and …Konnan!!!!
Konnan grabs the mic: Ariba la raza! You see I left TNA as I hated what was happening here. But the other day one of my boys said to me that Bret Hart was becoming a new partner so I turned on the tv and what do I see. My brothers fighting. My familia. LAX is forever hommes. So I picked up the phone and got these two hot heads together again. I said you were both 5150 and they should once again become the greatest faction in wrestling history. But they said to me only if I come back. Well I made a phone call to Bret Hart and LAX is back! Not only are we back, but Hernandez is the new Global Champion.
Out walks the World Elite, Young, Bashir and Kiyoshi to the top of the stage. Young takes off his tie, throws it to the ground and the three men rush the ring. But LAX are ready for them and beat them back. As Bashir and Kiyoshi are thrown out of the ring Young is caught in the middle of the three men! Cide punches Young and Hernandez picks him up in the border toss and throws him out of the ring and onto his stable mates on the floor knocking them all over. Konnan celebrates with LAX!
Tenay: LAX is back Don and they’ve brought Konnan with them.
West: Mike with Konnan leading the charge I think everyone at TNA has just been put on notice.
Tenay: You’re not wrong and I guess that starts with the World Elite.
Beer Money Inc. (Roode and Storm) vs. NEO-1-GT (London and Kendrick)
Storm rolls out on the boozer croozer, while the new kids on the block, London and Kendrick walk very cocky down the ramp.
London: Hey Beer Money, it seems TNA is telling everyone you are the best tag team in the world? Why? You don’t have the tag belts? We think you guys are overrated and we are prepared to show everyone right now.
NEO-1-GT spring on the former tag champions to get the upper hand.
Finish: Kendrick hits a superkick on Roode, but Storm nails Kendrick with a superkick of his own! Storm picks up Kendrick for the eye of the storm, only to have London chop block the back of Storm’s knee! Kendrick hits sliced bread as London climbs the turnbuckle to deliver the shooting star press on Storm! London makes the cover but Roode just makes the save at the count of 2. The ref tries to get regain order as Storm hits London with a beer bottle and as the ref puts Kendrick into his corner, Roode hits the payoff for the 3 count.
Winners via pinfall Beer Money Inc. at 8:25
Tenay and West hype tonight’s main event. The Whole Dam Show Rob Van Dam vs. Kurt Angle. And send it to the back to JB with RVD
JB is backstage with RVD: So this is TNA. You know what JB, TNA is perfect for RVD, because that is exactly what Rob Van Dam is. Total Non-Stop Action. You see I’ve been in other companies. And they wont let me cut loose, take my match to the next level. Take it to the extreme you might say. But here, there are no limits. Here in TNA, RVD is going to make a difference. Tonight I face the Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle. A man I have faced before. But the stakes this time are higher. A shot at the TNA World title. And no one can get higher than R.V.D!
Abyss w/James Mitchell vs. the returning Wildcat Chris Harris
A replay of Mitchell’s return and the brutal attack on Samoa Joe that put him in the hospital.
Tenay states that Joe could be very well be out for a long time as his larynx was almost crushed by Abyss.
Finish: Abyss hits the shock treatment backbreaker. Harris’ back bows up and Abyss picks him up by the hair and whips him into the ropes and delivers the blackhole slam! 1.2.3.
Winner by pinfall the Monster Abyss at 6:12
Mitchell grabs a mic: My monster is back. The locker room better prepare itself as Abyss is going to turn the six sides into his own personal slaughterhouse. One by one you will all fall. Click. Doomsday! Bwahahahahaha
Backstage JB is with the Blue Print Matt Morgan
Morgan: Last week on the first Impact of 2010, I fell short. Desmond Wolfe pinned my shoulders to the mat 1.2.3. That is hard for me to take. So at Genesis Wolfe, I want a rematch. I know I can beat you. I am the DNA of TNA I know I can beat you. I’ll wait for your answer. Don’t disappoint me.
In the ring is a huge party set up by the Pope Diangelo Dinero to celebrate his victory. There are heaps of Knockouts, the Motor City Machine Guns, Generation Me, and others as The Pope grabs a mic.
Dinero: Good evening everyone. Tonight the celebration continues as the Pope shows off his latest accessory. The X division ChampionshipAlex Shelley takes the mic and says it’s a double celebration Pope, the Machine Guns after last weeks unbelievable victory have been given a tag team title shot at the British Invasion at Genesis. Pope asks for streamers and some music up in the impact zone Pope high fives the Guns, but out walks Black Machismo Jay Lethal.
Lethal throws down his glasses and steals the mic off of Pope: When exactly did you earn last week’s X title shot? (Jay has lost the Macho Man accent) I’ve been out here for ages, entertaining everyone, making myself look like a fool. And what do I get? How many title shots against Amazing Red did I receive. None!! I could pin Red with my eyes closed and Jerry Lynn gives you a title shot. I’m sick of this. Now you hold some sort of party like you think you’re something around here!
The Guns try to calm him down, but Jay rips off his shirt and pushes Pope. Dinero doesn’t like that and pushes back until they start fighting. The party is destroyed as the two men brawl. The Guns grab Lethal, while Gen Me drag Pope back. Lethal walks off kicking things. Pope grabs a mic.
Pope: You want a title shot? The Pope will accommodate you beatch! My congregation will watch me as I kick your ass all over the impact zone! Because the Pope is Pimpin’
Christy Hemme is standing by backstage with Daniels and Steiner
Daniels: Tonight after what happened last week with the psychotic Abyss, TNA has decided to once again put together four singles wrestlers in a tag match to showcase how good TNA is. Once again it will be I the Fallen Angel teaming with Scott Steiner for dominance here in TNA. I will show the world that I am god’s gift to pro wrestling and take out Bret Hart’s so called best Tanahshi and Jeff Hardy
Steiner: I’M SO SICK OF THIS CRAP!!! I’m going to send Tanahashi back to Japan and Hardy back to the scrap heap where he belongs. See that vein in my arm Christy. That’s bigger than Jeff Hardy’s and Tanahashi’s arms combined. They’re not big enough, they’re not strong enough to face me. I’m the man with the largest arms in the world and the shortest fuse. And Christy, Big Poppa Pump is your hook up. Holla if ya hear me…
Daniels: That’s gospel according to the Fallen Angel… and Steiner
Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jeff Hardy vs. Christopher Daniels and Scott Steiner
Finish: Daniels hits the BME on Tanahashi, but Hardy makes the save. Steiner runs in but is tripped by Tanahashi. He turns over and acts as a springboard as Hardy hits whisper in the wind! Steiner falls to the mat and Hardy climbs the turnbuckles as Hiroshi rolls quickly o the left.
Hardy hits the senton bomb on Steiner. Tanahashi though leaps on Steiner to steal the pinfall from Hardy. 1.2.3.
Winners via Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jeff Hardy at 11:48
Daniels walks away from the ring disgusted as Hardy and Tanahashi get into an argument. Hardy isn’t happy about Hiroshi stealing the pinfall. Hardy pushes the Ace of the Universe, who grins, shrugs his shoulders and rolls out of the ring.
Tenay: The two number one contenders from last week showed how good they were tonight.
West: But it seems Jeff didn’t appreciate Tanahashi stealing the pinfall after he hit his finishing move.
Tenay: Your right there Don. Wait a minute we are getting word from the truck that they have some special tape they need to play us.
A camera goes down the steps into a boiler room or basement it looks like under the impact zone. In the corner sitting on old broken movie props and hideous special effect type monsters long since forgotten, is Raven. He is wearing an unharnessed straightjacket he looks into the camera.
Raven: Threats are for children, knives are for heroes and blood is for the innocent. The darkness, the cancer that gestates in my soul has spread to my eyes so they can shed tears of hate that will flood the impact zone and drown all the non believers of what I sung last week.
Last week was not a threat. Last week was a sermon promising I will rise from the bowels of the building and drag you all to hell with me as TNA burns. And your saviour from the rafters wont be able to help you.
Icon, are you ready to dance? Are you ready for me to pull the stinger from your tail and stab it into your own heart? I will watch you fall Icon. I will watch you fade away as chaos and anarchy will rain down like acid until there is nothing left. TNA burns.
Quote the Raven…nevermore.
Out to join Tenay and West on commentary is the Wolrd Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles!
Tenay: Thanks for joining us Champ!
Styles: I’m out here tonight to see who I’ll be wrestling at Genesis. This is going to be a great match!
The Whole Dam Show Rob Van Dam vs. The Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle
Finish: RVD hits a rolling thunder setting Angle for the finish. He climbs the turnbuckle for the 5 Star frog splash, but Angle playing possum waits for RVD to set himself and Angle springs up runs up the turnbuckle and delivers the off the top rope belly to belly suplex! RVD is hurt badly and Angle goes for the Angle lock. RVD hurrily gets to the ropes to break the hold but Angle refuses to let go.
The ref counts to 5 but Angle doesn’t let go so the ref warns Angle the match is for the title match and counts again this time to 4 and Angle drops the hold. RVD rolls out of the ring holding his ankle as Angle goes out after him.
RVD is ready delivers a spinning kick and then hops up on the apron and delivers a spinning plancha-backsault. Angle is down and RVD rolls hi back into the ring. As RVD jumps up on the apron, Angle grabs him and delivers another belly to belly overhead release. RVD crashes down and Angle pulls the strap down. He grabs RVD and delivers the Olympic slam… but RVD is able to turn it into a deep arm drag and as Angle gets to his feet is hit with a huge spinning thrust kick (a van daminator without the chair).
Angle falls in a heap and RVD goes to the top rope again. Angle again tries to climb the rope to deliver another super-belly- to-belly. But RVD catches him. Both men stand on the top rope togther for a few seconds and RVD launches himself off the top with Angle attached to him!!! It’s a 5 star frog splash with Angle under him. The two men crash down in the middle of the ring. 1.2.3
Winner by pinfall and #1 contender for the World Championship Rob Van Dam at 12:10
It seems RVD knocked himself out with the higher than high risk finisher as the ref has to drag him off the unconscious Kurt Angle. Both men seem to be out as AJ slides into the ring and helps up RVD. Rob seems to slowly come to and AJ is there to shake his hand and then raise it. Angle also comes to and can’t believe it.
RVD celebrates as AJ gets out of the ring and applauds his next opponent.
Ultimate 2010 Episode #1:
Intro:- Format is pretty bland. Simple quote box with some centre aligning would look better IMO. Heading should be bigger also.
- Opening credits? If you wanted you just post the impact intro embedded in a youtube vid.
- Eh, Hart. I suppose that’s different.
- he turns through, not though.
- That was meant to be 11 mins long? It took me 10 seconds to read it, and it sounded like it went for 5 mins at best. Some simple “The match then consisted of ___” stuff would have worked a lot better.
- Bold your wrestlers when they talk, Eg:
Foley: Have a nice Day!
- Effective promo from AJ Styles.
- Simple words from Hardy, does the trick and its something Hardy would say. Better than coming out and sitting on a cage than disappearing again >_<
- He gets a World Title shot in his debut match? That’s a great PR move.
- Yeah the summary format would definitely work better for you, (Have a look at some other fan fics to see what I mean) as there’s really not much to these matches other than “a few cool moves…its over).
- Yay, someone kept the Knockouts.
- Its ALISSA, not ALYSSA.
- I really don’t like Lumber matches, there just excuses to use jobbers most of the time. However The Hamada spot was pretty cool, I hope your build KO division.
- Tara’s new champ. Meh, hopefully she drops it to Hamada, Daffney or Flash .
- The promos are very poorly presented, fix your paragraphs up (The Hart promo).
- Looking forward to the main event, I like how you have built it up over the show.
- I don’t know what I expected from Hart’s promo, but it did the job.
- Yeah that was very generic, like any wrestler would say that. Even the cliché’ “Bret, I won a gold medal with a broken freakin’ neck” or “Oh Its Real/Its Damn Real” catchphrases could have added some character.
- I know I’m beating a dead horse, but all that match sounded like was a squish. The match results have been sensible so far though.
- The commentary format needs fixing also.
- Match writing makes spell check go insane, but DDT looks better with capitals IMO.
- I really enjoyed that match for what it was, if you had added some basic summary stuff “Wolfe continued to work the arm of Morgan wearing him down” or something like that, I would have enjoyed it more. Big fan of Wolfe so that was cool.
- That Raven promo was fucking awesome, maybe could have made it a bit longer. Also..fix those damn paragraphs up!
- How is that a pun?
- Hahaha, Steiner promos are golden, that gave me a healthy chuckle.
- You can’t get DQ’d in a Fatal Fourway, while that match was shit…having go Abyss go back to his monster gimmick is pretty awesome..really gets him over as a dominant force by fucking up Samoa Joe.
- Please push Abyss to the moon.
- I thought it couldn’t be defended on US Soil , nonetheless I hope you give the belt some credibility.
- I spoke to soon, you got me there. I didn’t think of that, good idea to have Eric Young badmouth Bret Hart (especially considering when Bret Hart was heel because of his Anti-american stuff).
- Hernandez is champ, cool I guess. Not a very interesting match for a title change to take place, I mean a lot of these matches should have been saved for PPV’s.
- RVD next show, good hook to get me reading the next show.
Would work better than just finish. Interesting use of Tanahashi as a main eventer, I figure you’re a big puro fan from your banner. AJ Retains as he should, though they were far too many title matches for an Impact. Build up the matches and have the big title matches at PPV’s (Unless you aren’t going to have any ).
Formatting was bad, colour could add a lot to the fed, as well as simple stuff such as bolding wrestler’s names when they talk and making sure their promos are in nicely presented paragraphs. Simple quote box and centre aligned would look good IMO (See Legacy or The Draft Changes Everything).
Some very cool use of talent, the matches could be a lot better but you showed a lot of promise so after a few shows I can see this fed being a great read.
The promos were for the most part bland, however Raven’s quick segment had me really intrigued. A decent show for your first fan fic (as far as I’m aware) and I look forward to reading more from you.
Ultimate TNA Episode 2 Review
First thing's first... I like the backstory of Bret over Hogan. Bret seems like he'd be more towards a true ROH-style fed based on competition rather then bash Sports Entertainment style and then go overboard with it, brother. Looks like a nice mix of TNA and new stars along with Knockouts? Very rarely do we see a division, so there's that. I'm reviewing your latest episode.
- I'll discuss it at the end, but you really need to format things so they stand out more. I'm not sure how other people deal with this, but I like to have the commentary and promos seperate from everything else so they aren't all one big text block. I also bold the speaker so it stands out more.
- Sets up the main event, so no complaints... except for the complaint above.
- I also think matches work best seperated from everything else. For instance I put the match in a quote box so it stands out.
- Short and chaotic. Decent match.
- I also noticed a few typos. It's not the end of the world, but you should proofread at least once before posting.
- I know Fan Fic is all about the summary format, but this seemed way too short. I'm probably one of the few who bothers with full matches these days, but I think the matches would be decent if they were at least a paragraph summary. Most people probably skip over matches completely though.
- More of an angle really, which was longer then the match!
Young w/ Petey
- I've always wanted to see something like this. Just someone calling out Eric Young on how he changed so drastically.
- Big fan of LAX, but not so much Bashir/Kiyoshi. With Tanahashi on your payroll it just shows there's so much better foreign talent to use instead of them.
- I didn't read show 1, but what's with that name? Seems like they were both high unless it means something?
- This size match I like. Not too much, but still enough. Seems you're basing the finish size on the time length?
- You should have him play Braden Walker for the lolz.
- Finish makes it seem like a total squash though.
- Course if Lethal is jealous, makes you wonder why MCMG are partying without a care in the world.
- I'm thinking the matches would come off better if maybe in addition to the finish you gave a brief story of the match. "A dominates and cuts off B from making the tag" and then explain the finish. Maybe check other feds to see how they do summary format.
- Okay this summary is more like it. Granted it's your main event, but I think your other matches would come off a lot better if they had more meat. Not as long as this, but a little more then you're giving them.
- RVD wins is the right decision. RVD/AJ would be fun and I'm sick to death of AJ/Angle.
- I already mentioned it, but you could really benefit with some formatting. Separating segments from matches with quotes or centering, etc. would be great. Bolding stuff would also help. Check out some of the other feds running around here and see how their presentations are. Not to toot my own horn, but click my sig to see how I set everything up. I find it's better on the eyes then everything kinda jumbled together.
- Matches were fine, but could stand to be a little longer. Even in the Summary Era it seems you're giving us little of anything outside your main.
- Outside of the basic complaints I want to read more as I like your direction and general use of talent. So I hope you stick around especially since you actually have women in your fed.
A recap of last week’s Impact shows ending with RVD's death defying frogsplash with Angle on the top rope to win the # 1 contenders spot.
The pyro goes off as the final Impact before the Genesis Supercard pay per view this coming Sunday night 23 Jan 2010 begins.
Mike Tenay and Don West welcome everyone to Impact and announce that at the ppv it will be a dream match up that will main event the ppv. For the TNA World Championship, ‘The Phenomenal One’ AJ Styles will defend against the ‘Whole Dam Show’ Rob Van Dam this Sunday at Genesis.
To the ring walks the new TNA partner, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. He is flanked by Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley.
Hart: Genesis will be exactly that for TNA 2010. The huge super show this Sunday will showcase the very best wrestlers in the world competing at the highest level to make TNA the greatest pro-wrestling company in the world today. The main event will be for the World Heavyweight Championship, where AJ Styles will defend against Rob Van Dam. In a spectacular match last week, Rob defeated the Olympic Gold medallist Kurt Angle to earn his spot to provide the TNA fans and pro wrestling fans all over the world, I would say a real life dream match up.
If I may I would like to bring out the competitors first of all the challenger RVD!
Out walks RVD. He plays to the crowd for a while before finally settling into handshakes with Jarrett, Foley and Hart. RVD grabs a mic.
RVD: Last week I took my body to the limit and showed the world what I can do without any restraints or limits put upon me. I am Mr. PPV and I will prove it this Sunday when I become TNA World Champion. This Sunday WILL be a Genesis for TNA, for when I become Champion, I will take TNA higher than it has ever been before.
Hart thanks Rob and introduces the Champion. Out walks AJ Styles. Belt over his shoulder in street clothes he enters the ring playing to the crowd as the three executives applaud the Champ. Foley gives Styles a mic.
Styles: Rob congratulations on defeating Kurt Angle last week. Not many men in the world can actually say that. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contender for the World title at Genesis and giving the fans a true match of the ages this Sunday. But make no mistake about it Rob. There is a man in this world that can take TNA to greater heights. And you’re lookin’ at him.
Styles drops the mic and stares at Van Dam. Rob is his usual laid back self smiles and takes a step back, not wanting to get into any confrontation outside of a match.
But the moment is interrupted by Kurt Angle. He steps into the ring and steps right up to the Hitman once again. Hart doesn’t take a backward step.
Angle: Do you realise what you have done? You have given RVD in his second ever match here in TNA a title shot. Your third week here Hart and you’ll start a revolt in the locker room. There are guys who have been here for years who have yet to receive a world title shot. You are going to tear this place apart with your decisions.
Hart: Angle the only reason you are out here, is because you are not in the main event at Genesis this Sunday wrestling for the TNA World heavyweight Championship. Two weeks ago with the help of the Champion I delivered a dream match main event. Last week I delivered a dream match main event. And at Genesis, AJ Styles vs. RVD is a dream match and TNA will become the greatest pro-wrestling company in the world.
Now Kurt, I’m going to keep my track record flawless and tonight deliver another huge main event. It will be the tag team of World Champion AJ Styles and challenger RVD vs. Kurt Angle and a partner of your choosing. If you think you can do better than me find yourself a partner that will create a big time main event. Clock’s ticking Kurt.
Angle leaves as RVD and Styles eye the other off as Foley and Jarrett pat the Hitman on the back for not backing down to Kurt Angle.
Backstage with Christy Hemme, the World tag team champions the British Invasion are not happy about what MCMGs said last week.
Magnus: It seems that the Champions were the last to know about the Machine Guns getting a title shot against us at Genesis. Well Bret Hart you have already made an enemy out of the World Elite, you have just made it worse for yourself.
Williams: So come Genesis Machine Guns you guys are going to find out exactly what it’s like to face true gentlemen champions when we kick your butts from here to the Thames.
JB is with X Division Pioneer Jerry LynnMatch #1
Beer Money Inc. (Roode & Storm) vs. Motor City Machine Guns (Shelley & Sabin)
Finish: Roode hits a huge clothesline on Sabin turning him inside out. He tags in Storm and they set for the double team but Shelley leaps from the top rope delivering a huge thrust kick to Storm. He rolls out of the ring and right to the feet of the Wildcat Chris Harris. Harris seems to have taken one of Storm’s beers. Storm swats the beer out of Harris’ hand and starts yelling at him. Harris puts up his hands and backs away. Storm turns back to the match to see the Guns hit made in Detroit on Roode for the pin cover. 1.2.3
Winners via pinfall the Motor City Machine Guns at 7:05 Storm jumps in the ring to help Roode, while Harris walks off to the back.
Shelley grabs the mic: Hey Brits if you didn’t like that, you haven’t seen anything yet!!!
Lynn: Last week Jay Lethal had a problem with my decision to award DiAngelo Dinero a title match for the special 3 hour Impact. So tonight I’m going to give Jay Lethal his opportunity at the X title by facing the former Champion the Amazing Red to see who faces the Pope at Genesis. Put your money where your mouth is Jay and see if you can earn yourself a title shot tonight.
Backstage with Christy Hemme is Desmond Wolfe.Match #2
Amazing Red vs. Jay Lethal
(Lethal is no longer wearing his Black Machismo outfit and comes out to his old ring gear and theme music)
Finish: Both competitors are keeping a furious pace as Red sprints off the ropes only for Lethal to deliver a drop kick. Jay quickly hits lethal combination and climbs the roes for the big sky elbow. But just before he delivers it he flips off the fans and drops down and arrogantly back kicks Red in the face.
The ref checks on Lethal as he brushes his hands to say that the match is his for the taking when the Pope runs out and delivers his huge flying shoulder block!! Red sees the opening and quickly hits the infra-red for the cover. 1.2.3. Lethal kicks out after the pinfall is made and he can’t believe it!
Winner via pinfall and number 1 contender for X title at Genesis, the Amazing Red at 4:56
Lethal is livid as the Pope smiles. Lethal goes after Red, but the former champion quickly slides out of the ring. Lethal tries to state his case to the ref but it’s all for naught.
Hemme: Last week the Blueprint Matt Morgan challenged Desmond Wolfe to a rematch at Genesis. Desmond you have asked for this time to respond.
Wolfe: Morgan, what the hell would I have to gain from kicking your arse all over the six sided ring again? I’ve got bigger and better things to focus on then you sunshine. Like the World Championship. You see Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jeff Hardy, Rob Van Dam and Mr. Mangled are no where in my league. So it will only be a matter of time when I am wearing AJ Styles’ pretty little gold belt around my waist. So sorry Morgan but sod off you wanker.
JB is wth the Beautiful People Velvet Sky and Angelina Love.
Love: In tonight’s #1 contender match for the Knockout title match at Genesis, the Beautiful People are going to do what they do best. And come out on top!
Sky: Tonight when Angelina takes out ugly Kong, that skank ODB and that weirdo Hamada, Tara you better be ready for Genesis because the Beautiful People are going to scrape that 3 inch thick makeup rght off that old hag face of yours!
Backstage Konnan and LAX: It seems tonight World Elite want a match with us. Well our era of violence starts all over again and it’s time for no talent Eric Young to toss our salad ariba la raza.Match #3
#1 contenders match for Knockout Championship
ODB vs. Awesome Kong vs. Hamada vs. Angelina Love w/ Velvet SkyTenay: Except for Hamada, all three women in this match are former Knockout Champs.
West: Hamada was put in this match Mike after her big wins over Roxxi, Sarita and Taylor Wilde. And here we go!
Finish: Kong is kicked in the gut by Angelina, stunning her. Love runs the ropes but is enveloped in a huge body block from Kong. Kong shakes off the effects only to be hit with a moonsault from Hamada. 1.2. Kong kicks out as Hamda delivers vicious kicks to Kong’s skull. Hamada runs the ropes and delivers a running drop kick putting down the giant former champion. ODB comes charging in but misses the clothesline and Hamada hits the hamada driver. 1.2.3.
Winner and #1 contender for KnockOut Championship Hamada at 6:34
Kong is once again irate, and hits the implant buster on ODB for taking the match pinfall. Hamada quickly gets out of the ring as Angelina is next and is hit with an awesome bomb. Velvet Sky on the outside had to turn away. Security comes out to try and calm Kong down but they too get punched and kicked. Kong’s music plays but she isn’t finished. She goes out after the camera man.
Gail Kim comes flying out from the back and hits a drop kick on Kong sending her into the steel guard rail. Kong goes beserk and attacks Kim but in her wild rage she is front toehold head first into the steel steps. Kim stands over the beast of the KO division with her arms raised.
Hernandez: Or gusto, Or no~
Tenay: LAX totally dominated the World Elite. We made need EMTs for them. Konnan has it in for Eric Young’s faction.Match #4
LAX w/Konnan vs. World Elite (Kiyoshi and Shiek Abdul Bashir) w/ Eric Young
Finish: The fans are almost feeling sorry for Bashir as he has been on the end of a brutal beating from Cide and Dez. Double teams and vicious gringo cutters and huge shoulder tackles have made Bashir look like a crash test dummy. Cide grabs the hand of Bashir and teases Kiyshi with a tag, as on the outside Eric Young bashes the apron, kicks the guard rail and curses LAX. Konnan laughs as Homicide drops a leg drop on Bashir only for Kiyoshi to break up the cover.
Kiyoshi has made a bad mistake as he is kicked in the gut and border tossed into the turnbuckles spine first! Bashir is then hit with the Gringo-Killa Vertebreaker finisher.
1.2.3. and mercifully the match is over.
Winners via pinfall LAX at 4:05
Konnan jumps into the ring and joins his boys as they survey the car wreck they have left behind. Kiyoshi and Bashir are both out as Eric Young looks up at three still hungry rabid dogs. As LAX music sounds Konnan hands Hernandez his Global title belt and Eric Young slowly backs away scared of what he has just witnessed.
West: You know what Mike, Konnan has got these guys so focussed that there is no limit to what they might do to anyone who steps in the ring with them.
Tenay: In the back we have JB with the Olmpic Gold medallist Kurt Angle..
JB is backstage with former Champion Kurt Angle
JB: Hi Kurt, I was wondering if you could let everyone know who your partner is going to be for tonight’s main event.
Angle: JB, it’s a secret. You’ll know when everyone else does when my pick walks down the ramp and helps me do something that is no secret.
JB: What’s that?
Angle: I’m going to go into this match. I’m going to snap Rob Van Dam’s ankle and by default put myself into the World title match at Genesis. Oh it’s real It’s van dam real… get it.. <awkward silence> get out of here!!
In a dark corner of the backstage area, James Mitchell with the Monster Abyss cut a promo. Mitchell is dressed in his red suit while the Monster has his huge chain wrapped around his forearms and neck.
Mitchell: Now that I have taken back control of the monster I have taken away his remorse. I have taken away his fear and I have taken away his humanity. All you see before you is truly a monster. A wrecking machine that is going to destroy all in his path and….
From out of nowhere Mitchell is brutally struck down. It is hard to see in the darkly lit corner, but Abyss is then attacked and sent flying back into metal poles and old rusted guard rails. The dim light on the camera catches the face of Samoa Joe as he pushes the camera out of his way as he grabs Mitchell by his jetblack long hair and drags him kicking and screaming.
Out of the entrance tunnel of the Impact Zone, Samoa Joe grabs Mitchell and hits him with huge kicks and punches. Mitchell falls to the ground double over in pain. Joe then picks him up and throws him down the ramp. Mitchell rolls over the hard steel to the impact zone ring side area where he comes to a sudden stop. Blood oozes from his forehead as Joe slowly and methodically stalks his prey. He grabs a chair from ringside igniting the crowd into chants of “Joe’s gonna kill you”. He sets the chair up next to the guard rail and plants Mitchell in it. He takes his towel that has been hung on his shoulders the entire time, and wipes Mitchell’s bloody face with it and holds it up for all the impact zone to see. Walking over to the other side he starts clapping his hands as the Impact Zone get ready to see the Ole Ole kick.
But the Monster stomps down the ramp to cut Joe off. Still holding his chain, he swings it at Joe, but Joe is too kick and hits an Enzaguri and sends Abyss into the steel steps. Joe tosses Mitchell off the steel chair and after several vicious chair shots to the Monster’s back sets it up on the other side. The fans are going crazy as Abyss is thrown head first on to the set up chair. Kneeling in front of it and not moving, Joe walks over to the other side and sets for the most hellacious Ole Ole kick of his career.
But With his last ounce of energy, Mitchell grabs the foot of ankle of Joe to stop the move. Joe looks at the crowd and says “looks like he wants more!” The Samoan Submission Machine picks up Mitchell by the scruff of his bloodied shirt and is about to hit a huge punch which he plays to the crowd. Mitchell begs and pleads.
But as Joe plays to the crowd to deliver a huge shot, Abyss has recovered, and wrapped the steel chain around his fist. Abyss strikes Joe right behind the ear. Joe drops Mitchell and falls to the ground. Abyss picks up Mitchell and escapes to the back as Joe holds the back of his head and screams out “I’M GONNA KILL YOU!!!”
Foley and a security team finally come out and help up Joe. It looks like they didn’t want any part of that war. Foley tries to help up Joe but he pushes the Hardcore legend away and stumbles through the sea of black security shirts as Tenay and West show replays of Samoa Joe’s rage.
Back from the replays, Mick Foley grabs a mic off the commentator’s table.
Foley: Joe listen, Joe! This Sunday at Genesis it will be The Samoan Submission Machine vs. The Monster Abyss!
Joe, who is half way up the ramp looks over his shoulder and half grins and half grimaces and then walks up the ramp holding the back of his head. But once again shows the bloody towel to the fans!
Christy Hemme is with Jeff Hardy and Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Hemme: Tonight you guys are again in tag team action together. Last week even though you won, it seemed you didn’t get along.
Hardy: Hey Christy, I’ve been part of the tag team scene for most of my career. Last week was a simple case of misunderstanding. Hiroshi and I are here in the new TNA for one reason, to show the world how good we are, how good TNA is and to win World titles. Tonight we are going to rock the Impact Zone.
They both walk off as Hemme smiles
Tenay: What a match! It seems TNA’s top high flyers are having themselves a little friendly rivalry here Don.Match #5
Hiroshi Tanahashi & Jeff Hardy vs. Scott Steiner and Desmond Wolfe
Wolfe gives everyone the forks and gets So Cal Val to take off his jacket. Steiner poses with his peaks and looks into the camera: "Me an Raymond Wolfe are going make those sons a bitches wish they were never born heh"
Finish: Hardy climbs the turnbuckle but Steiner cuts him off. He grabs Hardy and puts him on his shoulders for a second rope Samoan Drop. Hardy writhes in pain and Steiner tags in Wolfe and points to Hardy as if to say “sic him!” Wolfe drops elbows onto Hardy’s back one after the other and then after flipping off the crowd and Tanahashi and goes to work on Jeff’s arm. Hiroshi doesn’t like the disrespect and tries to enter the ring which of course catches the ref’s attention and Steiner is able to come in and put the boots to Hardy while he is locked in an arm bar by Wolfe.
Steiner climbs back to the apron and turns to the fans taunting them. Wolfe sets Hardy up and then pushes Tanahashi off the apron. He falls badly into the guard rail! Hardy staggers and Wolfe looks to finish the match with a deadly lariat. But as he launches himself., Matt Morgan trips him! Wolfe goes flat on his face! Hardy regains his focus and climbs the nearest six sides and delivers the senton bomb! 1.2..3.
Winners via pinfall Jeff Hardy and Hiroshi Tanahashi.
The Ace of the Universe gets into the ring and Hardy looks up at him and puts up his finger as if to say “One to one” Tanahashi rolls his eyes, waves Hardy away as if to dismiss his taunt and rolls out of the ring
West: Wow, you’re right Mike and what about Matt Morgan, he may have cost Wolfe a big win there.
Wolfe grabs a mic: Morgan! You want me at Genesis you wanker, you got me, I’m going to kick your bloody arse sunshine!
Wolfe tosses the microphone away in anger as Tenay and West breakdown the final card for Sunday’s Genesis super show pay per view:
<A Genesis graphic shows up with each match highlighted>
- Samoa Joe gets his revenge as he goes one on one with Abyss
- X Division Champion The Pope Diangelo Dinero vs. Amazing Red
- World Tag Team Champions The British Invasion vs. The Motor City Machine Guns
- KnockOut Champion Tara vs. Hamada
- Global Champion Hernandez vs. Eric Young, can the leader of World Elite reclaim the belt he named?

Suddenly the camera goes straight back to the commentary desk and Tenay has been knocked out by a huge steel hook. West is forced to the side by Dr. Steve and Daffney as Raven perches himself on the commentator’s table. West looks on in fear as his broadcast partner lays lifeless on the floor. Raven grabs a headset and hits a switch so not only the audience at home can hear but also the Impact Zone.
Raven: What?! You didn’t think I was serious? You didn’t think I wasn’t going to put a wrench in your plans. Ha! Bret Hart, Jeff Jarrett, Mick Foley, Sting. All lies. Hardcore legend Mick Foley. What a joke. King of the Mountain, please. I will show you ALL how pathetic your attempts to control things here in TNA really are.
As for you…. Icon… You think I’m not going to pull you from the rafters, you think I’m not going to pluck your little angel wings right offf your back. My blunt pliers should do the trick. But I'll se this hook to rip that halo right off your head!!!
(Jarrett leads out more security out of the tunnel and down the ramp)
Raven: Three days Stinger, Genesis. TNA burns. Quote the Raven nevermore.
Raven runs away, through the crowd. Stevie and Daffney stay behind to block security and Jarrett. Jarrett is heard on the camera saying he’s had enough. Stevie and Daffney laugh as Raven has escaped. Security escort them out as Don West checks on his friend Tenay.
(Mick Foley has joined Don West at commentary to help announce the main evnt match) Raven knocking out Tenay and taking over the booth are replayed as Foley takes his position. During the break, footage of Tenay being helped out of the Impact Zone is also shown. As the next match is announced.
Foley: Styles has shown everyone what a Champion he is. See you all on Sunday at Genesis!!!!!World Champion AJ Styles and Rob Van Dam vs. Kurt Angle and a partner of his choosing.
Angle grabs a mic: Styles, my partner is a man who knows you better than anyone else on this planet. While I’m breaking RVD’s ankle and putting myself back into the Genesis main event by default this man is going to make sure you stay out of my way…. Christopher Daniels…
To the ring walks the Fallen Angel. The two men shake hands as the big entrances of the Champion and challenger this Sunday light up the crowd.
Finish: Daniels has followed the plan flawlessly. He has taken Styles out of the match each and every time the Champion has tried to involve himself. Daniels almost knows exactly what he is thinking and constantly pushes him off the apron, or hits the ropes to stop him from using his aerial game throughout.
This of course keeps RVD at the mercy of Angle. Quick tags by Daniels after a BME has Angle go for an ankle lock for the third time in the match. RVD’s flexibility seems to be his only saving grace as Daniels keeps taking Styles away from the action and making the save. RVD grabs the bottom rope but Angle grapevines the leg to try and break the ankle. The ref warns Angle and then starts the count. RVD is in excruciating pain as the ref gets to 5. He tires physically to break the hold. Angle refuses.
Styles on the floor ducks a Daniels clothesline and sends his nemesis into the steel steps with a pele and leaps onto the apron. The ref calls for the bell to disqualify Angle but he still refuses to release the ankle. Styles delivers the springboard 450 splash on Angle which breaks the hold. Styles drags Angle up and delivers a styles clash!!! Angle is out!
Styles offers his hand to help up RVD. Rob takes it and limping on one foot raises the hand of the Champion.

Tenay: Bret hart the new partner of TNA wrestling has stated that TNA will be the best pro-wrestling company in the world. He is not interested in sports entertainment, he wants TNA to be known throughout the world as the very bets in pro-wrestling action, and Genesis is his foundation block.
West: Tonight we are going to see some absolute spectacles. Jeff Hardy vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi will look like we use special effects these guys fly so high and hit so hard.

Tenay: It’s time for Genesis….
The ring looks like a warzone as the new kids on the block have got a huge victory over two former champion teams.Match #1
Beer Money Inc. vs. NEO-1-GT vs. Team 3D
The tag team division is heating up and being the TNA Tag Champions means being the best tag team in the world. This match although not marked as a number 1 contender’s match. It very may well be. Team 3D have returned from their tour of Japan and are ready to get back in the title hunt. Former Champions, Beer Money Inc. believe they are the best and need one more opportunity to take back what is theirs. And the new team in TNA but former World tag champions themselves, NEO-1-GT, London and Kendrick have come to TNA to prove a point… that they are the very best and wish to beat the very best to show everyone how good they really are.
Finish: Team 3D’s tour of the Orient has seem to have revitalised their aggressive streak and their violent ways. Throughout the match they have continuously started beating down their opponents with double teams and quick tags. The three way dance format allows for the double teams and the ref cannot seem to get much control as almost the whole match all six men have been involved.
Kendrick frankensteiners Roode to the floor, and as he arrogantly poses he is hit from behind by a huge forearm from DVon, sending him neck first into the second rope Kedrick holding his neck is hit with an elbow drop from the 300 plus pounder. Brother Ray throws Roode into the guardrail on the outside and calls for DVon to get the tables! Two tables come out and are setup, only for Storm to superkick Ray clean out of the ring, but London clotheslines Storm onto a table, while DVon is then hit with slice bread by Kendrck right through a table! London hits the SSP on Storm and the ref makes the count. 1.2.3.
Winner via pinfall NEO-1-GT London and Kendrick at 7:46
Lethal: Impressive Dinero. But you got lucky. Sit down Jerry before I put your “jerry-atric” ass out to pasture. Now Pope you can’t run from me forever… you will give me a title shot.Match #2
X Division Championship Match
Champion The Pope DiAngelo Dinero vs The Amazing Red
Joining the commentary team is special guest X Div. Pioneer Jerry Lynn.
Finish: Pope is extremely frustrated after the constant bombardment from Red. Just when Pope looks to escape Red hits another high risk attack. Looking for cover on the outside Red seeks him out again and hits a spinning springboard plancha. Red is on fire as the new Champ is reeling. Red rolls Pope into the ring and goes for a cover but Pope kicks out at 2. Red looking a bit frustrated himself climbs the turnbuckles. But Pope is too quick and while Red steadies himself on the top Pope hits his infamous leaping shoulder block! Red was kneeling, so he is caught in the chest and face.
Red’s foot is caught on the way down and he is in an inverted tree of woe! His knee seems to be hyper-extended as he cries out in pain. Pope a little dazed, pulls down the knee pads and delivers a brutal DDExpress!. Red screams on impact and Pope makes the cover. 1.2.3.
Winner and still X Division Champion, the Pope DiAngelo Dinero.
The Pope celebrates but from the back walks Jay Lethal.
Dinero: <short of breath> Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay. Listen up cat coz Pope is only gonna lay this down on ya once. He doesn’t handle whiners and cry babies too lightly. So I tell you what, you prove you can take it, then I’ll consider it.
Lethal: Take it?! Take what?
Dinero: The Pimp slap!
Pope’s pimp slap is less of a slap and more of an open hand palm thrust! Lethal falls to the floor holding his face, as Pope’s music hits and the Champ walks off.
Rob Van Dam is with Christy Hemme.
RVD: Hey what’s up? I’ll tell you what’s up, R.V.D.. Ha, now seriously tonight is a huge night for RVD fans around the world. Finally he is in a company where he has no chains on him, no limits, nothing to hold him back from being the very best in this sport and becoming the World Champion. I couldn’t reach the mountain top in another company as they just wouldn’t let me display all the tools in my toolbox. They were afraid. TNA and Bret hart are not afraid to let me soar higher than ever before.
Hemme: How is your ankle after Kurt Angle refused to let go of the ankle lock on Impact?
RVD: Hey man it’s great, but even if it wasn’t, I’m not going to give away any weakness to AJ Styles now am I….
AJ Styles, you my friend are one cool dude. In fact one of the nicest dudes I have ever met. And you’re a great champion. But tonight all that goes out the window because I’m going to come crashing down on you with the 5 star and become TNA World Champion, because I’m Mr. Pay per view and I’m the Whole. Dam. Show.
Eric looks to be in absolutely terrible shape. The ref checks on him and calls for some help. As EMT’s quickly arrive, they are beaten by a very casual Petey Williams who rolls under the bottom rope and it seems behind everyone’s back grabs EY and sets him up. The ref continues to not see but when he does it is too late.Match #3
Global Championship match
Champion Hernandez w/ Homicide and Konnan vs. Eric Young
A replay of what LAX did to World Elite members Kiyoshi and Bashir this past Thursday is shown. Tenay mentions that they have been put on the shelf but the violent return of the militant thugs LAX and that Eric Young should be very careful tonight.
Finish: Hernandez is stunned by a quick forearm shot to the face. EY bounces off the ropes and hits a spinning discus clotheline to get the advantage. Like hungry animals on the outside, Cide and K-Dogg pace back and forth shouting obscenities at Young to try and put him off his game. Young jumps off the middle turnbuckle and delivers a straight elbow shot to the back of Dez’s neck. The strongest man in TNA is known to have had neck injuries and it seems it is his achillis heel.
Dez again is hit but when EY runs in with another big shot, the big man hits a huge shoulder tackle sending the W/E leader flying like a rag doll across the entririty of the ring. Konnan jumps on the apron to get the rf’s attention and Homicide hits a vicious GringoKilla- verterbreaker! Young seems to be out, as Hernandez picks up the scraps and hits a Border toss! 1.2.3. Hernandez retains the title!
Winner and still Global Champion LAX’s Hernandez at 6:57
Petey Williams hits his sick flip pile driver, the Canadian Destroyer on Eric Young!!! Unable to protect himself after being hit by a gringo killa and a border toss Young is a contorted mess… Williams casually rolls out of the ring as EMTs quickly survey the damage.
Stretchers and neck braces come out as Tenay and West can’t believe what has just happened and wish for Young’s safety. As Young is strapped to the stretcher, replay after replay of the LAX’s finisher’s and then the Destroyer in slow motion flash across the screen. Young is quickly stretchered out and moved to the ambulance that always waits in the back for bad situations.
Backstage Christy Hemme is with the Knockout Champion Tara
Hemme: We just saw what can happen in the ring. Hamada is a very dangerous competitor, are you worried about this match after seeing what just happened to Eric Young?
Tara: Wrestling is what I do Chrsty. Every time I step into the ring I know what dangers I face. And it isn’t a pillow fight or wet tshirt competition. It’s very dangerous women like Hamada. Hamada has nothing to lose and everything to gain, and I’m sure she is going to hit me with everything. I’m the Champion, I am ready for her, I hope she’s ready for me.
Awesome Kong looks up to see Tara’s hand being raised and Gail Kim walking back up the ramp.Match #4
Knockout Championship Match
Champion Tara vs. Hamada
Hamada has been on a roll, and received the Genesis title shot by defeating Kong, Love and DB in a four way elimination (replay of victory with the impressive Hamada-driver on the bigger ODB).
Finish: Tara with her MMA training has been keeping Hamada grounded and really working on Hamada’s most potent weapons, her legs. Knee bars, attacking the legs thighs and knees with kicks and elbows have negated Hamada’s leaping attacks and infamous kicks.
Hamada catches Tara with an elbow strike to the temple, while Tara was once again trying to hook a knee bar. Hamada limps and as Tara is on one knee delivers a shining wizard knee strike! She makes the cover.1.2…kick out! Hamada tries to slap her left leg back into the game as the Champion gets to her feet. The challenger sees an opening and goes for a big wind mill kick. But the move is too slow for Tara who moves quickly dodging the move. Unfortunately the ref is caught and he goes down holding his face!
Tara moves in and once again tries to hook a knee bar but Hamada counters with an enzuguri! Both women are down......... out thunders Awesome Kong. Kong sees the Knockout title as her possession and grabs the knockout who dares challenge for it instead of her, Hamada. But Hamada is not intimidated and escapes Kong’s grasp and unloads brutal kicks into Kong’s knees hurting her vertical base. Hamada then hits the ropes and delivers a drop kick, knocking Kong to the mat. Hamada then goes to deliver a moonsault to take care of Kong once and for all but Tara takes advantage and Hamada crashes and burns to the floor. Kong rises and sees the one she hates the most the Knockout Champion. But out runs Gail Kim.
Kim and Kong exchange blows once again and they fight on the outside. Gail uses Kong’s weight against her and she hits hard on the floor.
The ref gets to his feet to see Tara roll Hamada in. 1.2..kick out! Tara is not impressed. Champion and challenger exchange elbow strikes, but it is obvious Hamada is worse for wear. Tara hits a kick to the abs and then the Widow’s Peak. 1.2.3.
Winner via pinfall and still Champion Tara at 6:12

Morgan usually poses but this time quickly spins and punches Wolfe sending him flying into the centre of the ring. Morgan continues to stay focused as jumps onto the apron and gets into the ring. Wolfe though sees Morgan’s entry and kicks the middle rope.
Morgan goes down in a heap grabbing his crotch as Wolfe catches his breathe. Morgan slowly gets up and Wolfe hits a neck breaker and then locks in the London Dungeon arm submission that won him the match last time. But Morgan seems to have worked out a counter and turns his big over pinning Wolfe’s shoulders. 1.2.. Wolfe rolls his shoulder but keeps hold of the arm and as both men get to their feet Wolfe delivers a vicious short arm clothesline! Wolfe covers but Morgan kicks out at 2.
Morgan pounds the mat and leaps to his feet right in front of Wolfe and delivers a split second surprise Carbon Footprint! Morgan signals for the Hellavator and throws Wolfe up but Wolfe reverses it and brings Morgan down with a schoolboy pin combination. 1.2 ..Morgan Kicks out! Wolfe then goes for his lariat but Morgan tries to leapfrog over him and the two men tumble through the ropes but dangle on the ring apron. Trying to get up Wolfe quickly gets back in the ring, but Morgan grabs him from the outside. Wolfe shifts his weight and drags Morgan over the top rope… Tower of London!!! 1.2.3
Winner by pinfall Desmond Wolfe at 11:11
can’t believe he lost again…

The ring announcer welcomes to the ring TNA’s new partner Bret “The Hitman” Hart!! Hart walks to the ring with a mic. He does his trademark pose to the fans and grabs a mic.
Hart: Genesis. The beginning. Tonight will be the building block, the foundation of TNA becoming the best pro-wrestling company in the world.

Hart is as shocked as everyone in the Impact Zone as Williams tosses Angle out of the ring and leaps over the top rope and hits his frankensteiner sending Angle into the steel steps. Hart tries to get down and stop Williams, but as he does Williams is ripping up the safety mat from ringside. Williams locks in the sharpshooter on Angle. Hart pulls Williams off breaking up the submission hold. Petey looks confused and tells Hart that no one disrespects the Hitman. Hart tells him to stop but Williams pushes Hart away, sets up Angle and hits the Canadian Destroyer!!!!
Angle’s skull sickly hits the unprotected concrete floor. His neck compresses and his body slumps. Tenay and West scream out on commentary talking about Angle’s surgically repaired neck. The Impact Zone goes completely silent.

1.2. kickout! RVD leg scissors AJ’s body pinning his shoulders. 1.2. Kickout. But RVD’s legs are tangled and Styles reverses the pinning attempt into a Stylesclash! 1.2. kickout! RVD is down and Styles climbs the turnbuckle to hit one last high risk move! RVD though catches Styles and looks for a superplex. The two jockey for position, and suddenly RVD leaps, and attempts a super-conrana! The two men fly through the air, but Styles in mid air holds on to RVD’s knees and transforms the move into a SuperStylesClash!!!! Cover..1.2.3!!!!
Winner and STILL Champion of the World AJ Styles at 23:51
Raven pounds on the forehead of the champ. He unloads punch after punch. Jarrett, Foley, the locker room, run towards the ring but Team 3D come out of the fans and keep them all at bay. Dr.Stevie jumps onto the ring apron and covers the ring ropes in gasoline!!! He then jumps down and helps Team 3D in attacking Jarrett, Foley, security, and the other wrestlers. Raven hits the Raven Effect DDT on Styles and takes out a lighter and shows it to the crowd. The first 4 sides of the ring facing the entrance tunnel go up in flames.
No one knows what to do as chaos and anarchy has taken over the impact zone! Raven keeps raining down blows on the unconscious champion, while the wall of flame engulfs the ring and Raven’s accomplices fight Jarrett and Foley.
Suddenly Sting’s music hits! From the rafters, Sting descends to the other side of the ring where the fire had not reached. Raven’s widen as if all his Christmases have come at once. Finally the Icon has come to face him. Foley throws a chair at Brother Ray and RVD leaps up and hits the Vandaminator! Jarrett, Foley and the others turn the tide and put them down. Hart leads out security with fire extinguishers and throws Foley the Hardcore legend’s signature barbed-wire baseball bat and Jarrett his guitar.. Foley takes out Dr. Stevie, Jarrett takes DVon. The fire still crackles as Raven and Sting meet head on as the crowd explode!
Sting and Raven exchange blows and tumble out of the ring. Hart gets the fire put out and dives into the ring to check on the well being of the World Champion. Sting punches Raven over the guard rail and into the fans. He chases after him, but Raven grabs a fan’s steel chair and hits Sting. The Icon falls back but comes again. Raven swings again but Sting hits a kick to the gut and lands a huge right hand. Raven falls to the ground. Sting stands over him but Daffney runs out and jumps on Sting’s back. Raven laughs and says “This is only the beginning!” He turns and runs. Sting throws Daffney off and security grab her.
Raven has escaped and Sting and Hart exchange glances. The fire has been put out for now....
End of GENESIS.

Okay, thought I'd hit you up with a short review, just so you know, you're fed is one I look out for, it's easy to read, and there are so many things I wished I'd thought up first.
- London and Kendrick are one of my favourite teams, not sure about them beating both 3D and BM so soon, without much story or build up, but I can live with it. Not sure of their name, either, I just ignore it, and think of their real names.
- Pope vs. Lethal is looking like a good feud, would have preferred to see him build to dropping the Machismo gimmick, but he did need to drop it to be taken seriously.
- RVD's promo. Eh, seems everyone in your main event is face, as opposed to the real TNA is heel. But yeah, this is just RVD all over, whether that is good or bad, I'm not sure.
- Dez gets some help to beat EY, not that he should need it, but it's LAX, so I'll let you off. Petey takes out EY. Interesting. Favourite part, can just see him hitting the Destroyer and casually rolling out the ring, strolling down the ramp, whilst EMTs rush past.
- Not really following your Knockouts, my own choice, just because women's wrestling usually does nothing for me, nothing to do with your fed.
- Morgan knows he can beat Wolfe, but just can't do it, not sure I really see Morgan as face, and if so, I don't think Wolfe is the "nemesis" he needs, but this could turn out a great feud.
- Angle unhappy at Hart, and rightly so. Not sure who I should be cheering, probably both. Then BAM, Petey "DO THE MOVE!" Williams hits it again, and this time, with a vengeance on Angle's neck. Not sure it's right to do exactly the same thing, on the same night, but I really like your Petey. I thought he'd just be some one else hanging around the X Division, but you're making him really important, just feel he needs something more than the Destroyer.
- What was Karen doing there? Would have been better if Petey snogged her, before walking off
- I wanna live in the Motor City! Like Londrick, not sure giving them this big win with such a short build up is right, but I guess you want them to be your champions to kick off, rather than BI, which is fair enough. Londrick vs. Shabin could be awesome.
- Honestly, most of what I know of Tanahashi, is from his very underwhelming TNA run. Maybe you could do an "in-depth look" on him on your next Impact, to let people know just who he is, and why he is one of "the best".
- I know he's been through a hellacious match (and that's what Abyss vs. Joe SHOULD have been), but Abyss should never need help
- AJ vs. RVD, what you'd expect... Then... I correct myself, my favourite part of your fed... Raven! In my mind, I have a 2002/3 in shape Raven in my mind. Attacking the champ and the challenger, burning the ring! Getting his "Flock" to protect him. Again, superb. I love, love, love your Raven.
- I didn't really like the "Coalition" recovering the situation, I'd have had Raven standing successful in the ring as it burns, as the ending to this show.
Sting can have his dropping from the rafters moment later on, and they can do the big pop, saving the ring etc., but right now, Raven being in complete control, rather than the back foot, would have been better.
This may seem like I've critisized a lot, but as I say, your fed is one I really enjoy reading.
Greywolf’s review on: Ultimate TNA 2010’s PPV, Genesis
It was an “okay” video montage to start up the show. Although all it did was tell me what I’m looking at, instead of syncing the music with the parts you really want to show.
I guess you’re trying to make Genesis have that Wrestlemania feel? If so, then I don’t see the point of a World Title #1 contender ship in the card. Just title matches and big feud matches would work enough for a Wrestlemania like feel card. On other PPV’s that aren’t as big would work with that kind of match.
Honestly, just because it’s TNA, I feel as if they’re trying so hard to look better than the WWE. IT’s their curse as a smaller promotion that they think works when doing self promotion, but really it just makes me hope the WWE buys them out.
The match was confusing to read. Not so much wrestling, than description on what the wrestlers are feeling during the match and some general description here and there. And then after the match is done, another just starts with nothing to hype the main event matches? Try to promote future matches in the card in between matches that start the card off.
Another “meh” match. It’s just that it’s not a full match, and it doesn’t really tell anything that happened before the ending. Now the ending after the match was decent enough.
That promo for the main event felt forced and awkward. Maybe if you’re not sure on what to say, just describe how the conversation is going. Like “Rob Van Dam started with talking about how he’s glad that he’s finally in a promotion that doesn’t hold him back from his move set.” Something like that would work more.
Tara vs. Hamanda was as better written match, with more detail and longer than the others, so far. The ending helped with feud building.
I never saw Morgan really wrestle, so I don’t know anything about the posing. It’s your decision whether he poses or not, since you have full control over what he does. Desmond Wolfe wins, pushing young talent.
You should spell check before posting. Although I’m not really into the argument, the reason for it was good. You have a top wrestler such as Kurt Angle not being in a big time PPV. But then I’m not sure if he was just an angry face or heel after the attack on him. The attack was intense and did its part for a feud.
The ending of most matches feel like a summary, with the final moments at the end.
Hardy vs. Tanahashi was a better match as well. The match was better performed and detailed.
Joe vs. Abyss was a street fight I guess. I never seen people’s interest in using glass, but you used it well enough. The match was more of a brawl into submissions. A good match for what I guess is a heated feud.
For the main event, you should try to give guys breaks in between moves. Let them have some time to catch their breath before performing another high flying move, that’ll make the match feel longer. And try to make the pins seem more intense, some do each number in one paragraph with many dots; others do a few dots in a row, or maybe dashes. I never saw this match as a dream match, even though I’m a fan of both. With RVD his only dream matches were against Jeff Hardy, and they already happened.
… Okay. The ending was different, I’ll give you that. It was confusing with all the wrestlers you put into the situation, but it’s starting a big company war. This’ll lead into a good long term feud to keep the viewers interested into wondering what’s going to happen next.
Overall, it was okay for a first pay per view. I already said what you should work on, so I’ll just say keep up the enthusiasm and good luck with future shows.

TNA IMPACT EPISODE 4 <Opening Intro>
The World Champion AJ Styles pulls up in the parking garage. He gets out and is extremely angry as he enters the building.
Pyro in the Impact Zone explodes to kick off the latest episode of TNA 2010.
Tenay: Welcome everybody to TNA Impact! Tonight will deal with the aftermath of Sunday night’s ppv Genesis. And what a night it was, a night we will never forget!
West: Genesis was meant to be the company’s foundation to becoming the greatest pro-wrestling company in the world. And in just about every way it was except it was scarred by some very dangerous incidents.
<Replays of Eric Young getting hit by the Gringo-Killa and then the Border Toss are shown. Then Petey Williams casually slipping into the ring and hitting the Canadian Destroyer behind the ref and LAX’s back>
Tenay: We have confirmed that at this time that Eric Young along with his World Elite partners Kiyoshi and Sheik Bashir have been severely injured and will not be cleared to wrestle for an indefinite amount of time.
West: LAX last week were vicious Mike and took out Kiyoshi and Bashir and were even more so with Eric Young. But then came the sick flip pile driver from Williams!
Tenay: He wasn’t finished there either Don, as when Kurt Angle came out to confront Bret Hart, Petey Williams attacked Angle pulled up the protective mat and after either taunting or imitating the Hitman we are still unsure at this time, delivered the Destroyer again to Kurt Angle.
West: We all know Kurt’s history with his neck. The Canadian Destroyer on the concrete floor has possibly paralysed Kurt and we are still unsure of his condition at this stage.
Tenay: JB interviewed Karen Angle this week to get an update on the Olympic Gold Medallist’s condition.
<Pre-taped interview with a sobbing Karen Angle>
Karen: At this stage he is still unconscious. The Doctors fear he may have broken his neck again, but wont know for sure until he regains consciousness. I just want to thank TNA and all the TNA fans for their well wishes. But I want to say to Bret hart, I wish you never came to TNA. This is all your fault!! Please excuse me…sorry…excuse me…
West: Mike all we can do is send our well wishes and our prayers to Kurt and his family.
The Hitman’s music fills the Impact Zone as out walks Bret Hart. Holding a mic he enters the six sided ring.
Hart: Last night at Genesis TNA put on one of the greatest professional wrestling events in recent history. The matches were absolutely amazing and showcased the talent this company posses. Now there were a few blotches on my record last night. As far as Raven goes, Mick Foley and Jeff Jarrett have asked for permission to take care of that situation. However I am out here to deal with the other, and that is Petey Williams and his actions this last Sunday.
I have been informed that Eric Young’s career is possibly over and Kurt Angle is still in critical condition. And what sickens me is that these acts have been perpetrated in my name. As pro-wrestlers we all know that due to our contracts, no one can actually be charged or sued with any criminal acts once they enter the ringside area. Williams there will be no legal repercussions for you. But I can hand out my own justice here in the Impact Zone! Get out here Petey I’ve got something to say to you.
Petey walks out. He seems a bit confused, but seems open armed to Hart. Once he gets in the ring he offers his hand to Hart. But the Hitman does not take it…
Hart: Petey, do you realise what you have done? Do you realise how much damage you have caused? Not only did these atrocities happen under my watch, you are apparently doing them under my name. And I wont stand for it.
Williams: Bret, I know exactly what I’ve done. I have made an example out of anyone who disrespects you. I don’t care if you are a member of the ring crew, the former Global Champion Eric Young or the Olympic Gold Medallist and multi-time World Champion Kurt Angle. No one disrespects you Hitman. Kurt Angle thinks he’s better than everyone else. Let’s see how superior he is now lying in that hospital bed!
Hart: This isn’t the way Petey. And now I have no choice but to suspend you for your act… <Get ready To Fly!>
But the Hitman’s words are interrupted by the World Champion’s music. Down the ramp power walks the Phenomenal One. Launching himself into the ring, AJ looks Williams up and down, and doesn’t take his eyes off of him.
Hart: What are you doing here AJ? After the attack by Raven I gave you the week off., to heal and train for your Championship bout with Tanahashi.
Styles: Don’t you dare suspend him Hitman. You see I’ve got a little steam I need to blow off. You see Petey everyone in this company worked their tails off at Genesis to make TNA the top pro-wrestling promotion in the world. But you and Raven had to go and ruin everything we worked so hard for. So since Raven isn’t here and until he pops his head out of the stinking hole he crawled into last night after the Stinger ran him off. I guess I get to take my frustrations out on you. Right here. Right now.
Hart: AJ are you sure you are ok to wrestle?
Styles: Ring the bell Hart. <Styles, the whole segment, did not take his eyes off Williams>
Hart: Looks like the World Champion is going to dish out his own type of justice Petey, this match starts right now! And since I'm out here I'll referee.
Petey tries to escape the ring but AJ leaps on him, spins him around and unloads with right hands!
Petey grabs the doubled-over AJ and sets him for the Destroyer. Williams pauses taking in the Impact Zone as it seems the whole place holds its breathe!!!Match #1
AJ Styles vs. Petey Williams – guest referee Bret Hart
Styles whips off his t-shirt and uses it to choke Williams. Williams is hit with AJ’s signature moves as he wasn’t ready for AJ’s rage!
Finish: As both men are in street clothes, AJ has taken the fight to the outside. Stomping down Williams, the Champ calls out to the crowd to cheer him on!
But a dazed Williams, grabs a steel chair and rams it into AJ’s gut. Hart calls for the bell.
Winner via disqualification AJ Styles at 3:50
Hart quickly climbs out of the ring to try and stop what already happened to Eric Young and Kurt Angle! He points a finger at Petey demanding he stop.
AJ recovers and back body drops Williams onto the floor! Styles catches his breathe, Hart looks over him as Williams runs up the ramp. Hart and AJ watch Williams get away, as the Champion seems to be thanking his lucky stars he didn’t end up lying next to Kurt!
In the back JB is standing by with Jerry Lynn
Lynn: Petey Williams as a member of the X division I am ashamed of your actions and will as of this moment be looking at your ranking for the X title. But the show must go on as they say and the X Division shined brightly at Genesis when the reigning Champion, the Pope retained the title in an awesome match with Amazing Red!
Tonight will be no different when right now the sensation from south of the border the Luchador Mistico vs. the warrior Senshi.
<A video package of Mistico and his unbelievable accomplishments in CMLL are shown. Video package of Senshi in TNA is then shown >
Senshi is in shock at the loss. Mistico rolls out of the ring and as the ref raises his hand Senshi kicks the ropes and is livid with the loss!Match #2
Mistico vs. Senshi
Finish: The vicious Senshi dominates the match with his brutal kicks and strikes. Mistico has been able to escape the pin covers but begins to fight back. Senshi charges, only for Mistico to leg trap and then sunset flip powerbomb the warrior! Senshi sits up only to be quickly dropkicked back to the mat. Mistico hits the ropes and shoots off for a springboard moonsault, but is caught with a huge lethal kick to the body!
Mistico is down and Senshi climbs the top rope to hit his finisher the dreaded double foot stomp. Senshi lets out a primal scream as he leaps down but Mistico rolls out of the way! Senshi hits the mat and seems to injure his left knee! Mistico takes advantage and hits La Mistica (Tilt–a–whirl headscissors takedown transitioned into a single arm DDT floated over into a Fujiwara armbar).
Senshi does not tap, but Mistico quickly turns the hold into a schoolboy. 1.2.3
Winner via pinfall Mistico at 8:23
Backstage the World Champion is with JB: Petey you’ve got some balls coming back to TNA and taking out whoever you please. Well you just made your last mistake trying to take me out. I’m coming for you now punk and maybe I’ll end your career…
In the Impact Zone with Mike Tenay and Don West.
Tenay: tonight we have some great matches for you.
LAX take on Speed Muscle
The Beautiful People vs. Knockout Champion Tara and Gail Kim
Jeff Hardy will be in action against Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner
And this match requested by Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley, it will be The King of the Mountain and Rob Van Dam vs. The Dudley Boys
Out to the ring walks the Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels in his suit and sunglasses.
Daniels: A lot of things are going on here in TNA since Bret Hart came in. A lot of new faces, which means a lot of guys hating the new guys trying to make sure they don’t steal their spots. Hey just like Kurt Angle I also didn’t get a match on the Genesis card. The difference between Kurt and myself is, I wasn’t stupid enough to go out into the ring when there was a lunatic running around the building taking guys out for disrespecting Bret Hart! Really smart Angle, Williams already took out Eric Young, what you didn’t think he would do it again? Oh and Bret cut the innocent act pal, we all know Petey is working for you.
As for me, the only spot I covet is the World Championship. But of course I had two shots already in the last few months. One in the Turning Point 2009 triple threat and a one on one match at Final Resolution 2009. So here I stand, ready to work my way back up to the top of ladder. And who do I see. My old friend Samoa Joe. And I use the term friend very lightly. You see ever since he came to TNA it’s been hell here for me. Everytime he is involved he beats me. He takes my titles. He sticks his nose in my business. So now Joe I’m going to stick my nose into yours.
You see I couldn’t help but laugh when Abyss betrayed you Joe. And then choked the life out of you with a steel chain. Then all I could do at Genesis is watch you and Abyss rip each other apart. The fact of the matter Joe is that you won that match that ranks you pretty much next in line for a World title shot. Unless of course I beat you, and that’s exactly what I intend to do. I challenge you at the KINGDOM COME ppv to a match and I will do what Abyss couldn’t and that is beat you. And that’s not just a promise but it’s gospel according to the Fallen Angel haha.
Out walks James Mitchell with mic in hand: Well said Daniels and nice timing. Both Abyss and Joe are not here tonight due to the injuries they sustained at Genesis. And you an pretty much say whatever you want. And I know how dangerous you are, that’s why I’m all the way up here.
I’ll let your snide comment about Abyss not beating Joe pass as I have a proposition for you. I would like to offer you my services as your manager. You see “Fallen Angel”, I have seen how black your heart is and it matches my own. I want to take you to the promise land, and get you that World Championship. What do you say, you, me, Abyss. Who could stop us?
Daniels: Interesting, you pose a good point. You, me and Abyss working together would be unstoppable. But who says I need you Mitchell? You walk around backstage with your monster in his cage telling everyone how evil you are. You haven’t seen evil! You think you’re a demon, well I’m the devil, and my greatest trick has been always not letting anyone see me coming. Well the time has come to show everyone and it starts with Samoa Joe and it will only end with Championship gold around my waist. And that is gospel!
Mitchell is not happy with the rejection as Daniels stands on the second turnbuckle and looks out to the Impact Zone almost dismissing James Mitchell.
Tenay and West tell the fans to take a look at a video package of the new #1 Contender to the World Championship Hiroshi Tanahashi
Backstage JB is with Jeff Hardy
JB: Unbeleivable match at Genesis Jeff, but unfortuately Tanahashi got the win and the number 1 contender spot.
Hardy: JB everyone saw Hiroshi hit me with a low blow. He couldn’t put me away so he went the low road. So Hiroshi enjoy your undeserved title shot, because I’m coming for the TNA title and be it you or Styles I will face, because I live for the moment I become TNA Champion.
Tenay: Apart from the explosive start by Speed Muscle, the ferociousness of the reformed LAX was on display. Konnan seems to be sending a message to all tag teams that they are eating up the tag division one team at a time…Match #3
LAX w/ Konnan vs. Speed Muscle
From the LAX entrance to the side of the Impact Zone emerge LAX led out by Konnan. Speed Muscle come out but after they finish posing step right into a stare from Hernandez and Homicide that would scare the bravest of men. Konnan on the ring apron basically sics his dogs on the opposition.
Finish: The Global Champion Hernandez hits a huge shoulder tackle sending the speedstar Yoshino flying out of the ring and onto the floor!!! Doi the Muscle of the group comes in and lands chops to Dez but the big man irish whips him to the turnbuckle and hits a flying splasgh squashing his opponent.
On the outside Yoshino slowly gets to his feet only to be hit with a leaping Homiicde hitting a gringo cutter on the floor! Yoshino is out, as Hernandez tags in Cide who hits ghetto stomps and directs Hernandez to put Doi on his shoulders. Cide hits a huge uppercut sending Doi crashing to the mat. The ref tells Hernandez to get out of the ring, but it makes no difference as the notorious 187 hts the Gringo-Killa vertebreaker. 1.2.3.
Winners by pinfall LAX at 4:44
The Beautiful People are backstage
Angelina Love: The Beautiful People are not impressed we were left off Genesis. That icky old man Bret Hart doesn’t understand that the Beautiful People equals ratings and buyrates, so tonight we’ll show him exactly what we are all about.
Valvet Sky: That’s right and if that means scrapping the 3inch thick make-up off Tara’s face to do it. Then that’s what’s going to happen! Hollah!
Kong throws Hamda off into the guard rail but turns right into a huricanrana form Gail Kim. Kong’s body hits the steel entrance ramp. Gail and Hamada unloads kicks to the beast of a woman, and Tara runs down and delivers a Lou-Thesz press and unloads some right hands! The Beautiful People choose to help Kong and from behind attack Hamada, Gail and Tara! A brawl starts and security comes down and seperates the Knockouts!!Match #4
The Beautiful People (Velvet Sky & Angelina Love) vs. Knockout Champion Tara and Gail Kim
Finish: Angelina Love is taking it to the Knockout Champ. She arm drags Tara to the mat anf dollows it up with a drop kick. She stomps the left arm and then after locking in a knuckle lock performs a ‘dragon screw’ arm whip. Love tags in Valvet who poses seductively while entering the ring, and starts stomping away on the champ while shrieking. Tara reaches out to her partner, but is too far away. Gail tries to get the fans behind her and encourage Tara by slapping the top turnbuckle. But Valvet drops an elbow to the middle of the spine! Valvet taunts Gail by sticking her tounge out. Gail tries to get in the ring, but this distracts the ref and Love grabs Tara and throws her to the floor.
Suddenly Awesome Kong comes out. And she goes after Tara, but Hamada runs out after her, spins her around and hits a combo of fierce kicks and strikes. Kong is stunned. As so too is Valvet, and Tara rolls her up. 1.2.3! Valvet can’t believe it!
Winner via pinfall at 4:02 Knockout Champion Tara and Gail Kim
Christy Hemme is live outside the Impact Zone parking lot where James Storm and Chris Harris are pointing fingers, pushing and shoving and yelling at each other. Robert Roode is getting between them as other ring crew and wrestlers start to gather around. The camera man follows Christy as the microphone picks up the argument.
Storm:You should never have come back here Harris, you think you can take off for greener pastures and just walk back in here!?! Huh!?
Harris: I’m a TNA original and I deserve to be here. Besides wasn’t it YOU who turned your back on me, stabbed me in the back, almost blinded me by breaking a bottle in my eye. I’m here to compete and to win titles. Don’t go around here blaming shit on me because your new tag partner is no where near as good as me. I carried you all those years you drunk!
Roode: Hey! America’s Most Wanted is nothing compared to Beer Money. We are the greatest tag team on the planet.
Harris: Not with you in it Bobby.
Roode punches Harris. The Wildcat drops to one knee and then holding his jaw gets up.
Harris: Just stay out of my way. The both of you!
Harris walks off as Hemme looks at the camera to signal back to the Impact Zone
Tenay: AMW is probably the most decorated tag team in TNA history, but Harris and Storm had a huge falling out years ago. I guess with Bret hart bringing back the Wildcat, tempers have flared.
West: Mike, Beer Money are one of the best teams in the biz today and you’ve gotta wonder if the Wildcat Chris Harris is jealous of Storm’s new found success with Robert Roode.
Hardy stands on the turnbuckle celebrating his huge victory! But as he claps and backs up the ramping thanking his fans, he is clotheslined from behind by Desmond Wolfe! Wolfe dusts imaginary dirt off his hands, and takes his sunglasses off. Wolfe who is known for sneak attacks after attacking Kurt Angle all end of 2009, has now seemed to have set his sights on Hardy. But as Wolfe is ready to hit his lariat on a dazed Hardy, the Blueprint's music hits and out walks Matt Morgan. Wolfe puts his hands in the air and puts his hands in the air. Morgan stands on the ramp as Wolfe slowly slinks away backstage....Match #5
The Charasmatic Enigma Jeff Hardy vs. Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner
Steiner has two freaks (attarctive but scantily dressed valets) on his arms, as he walks down the ramp. He snatches the mic off the ring announcer.
Steiner: Now everybody knows that the big bad booty daddy is in town and the only things I think about is my freaks and my peaks. <Steiner flexes his huge biceps>. Because I’m the man with the largest arms in the world and Jeff Hardy you’re nothing but a drug addict lookin’, anorexic piece of white trash. Everyone around here thinks your somebody. You aint <beep> boy and I’m going to enjoy rippin’ you’re arms off and using them to floss my teeth.
Out rocks the Charasmatic Enigma
Finish: Steiner belly to belly suplex Hardy for the third time! Hardy hits the mat like a rubber doll as Steiner points at his opponent and yells at the fans “here’s your Jeff Hardy, he aint shit!”
Steiner does push ups next to Hardy’s prone body, to taunt the extreme superstar. Steiner finally stops and drags Hardy up by his hair. The referee warns him, but he is told emphatically to shut up. Steiner even drops Hardy and chases the ref all the way out of the ring. The loose cannon has injured referees and wrestlers alike and the ref was not interested in getting injured by Steiner.
Hardy has had time to recover and when Steiner turns around he walks right into a leaping forearm! Steiner hits the mat and Hardy quickly climbs the second turnbcukle and after calling for the move to the fans he delivers a Guillotine leg drop. Hardy covers, 1.2…. Steiner rolls the shoulder. Hardy then drags Steiner to the middle of the ring and grabbing Steiner’s legs he delivers an extreme leg drop, hitting both his legs into Steiner’s abdomen. The air goes out of Steiner as Hardy rolls backwards and sets for the twist of fate.
Steiner gets up and Hardy kicks Steiner in the gut grabs his head and roars! But Steiner is too powerful for Hardy to apply the finisher and pushes him off. But Hardy comes again and hits a sitout jawbreaker! The impact sends Steiner into the turnbuckle and then sliding down to the floor. Hardy then grabs the top rope and delivers a Hardyac Arrest (rope aidded corner dropkick!)
Hardy climbs the turnbuckle and as Steiner rolls in pain, delivers the swanton bomb! 1.2.3!
Winner via pinfall Jeff Hardy at 9:26
Backstage the NEW Tag Team Champions the Motor City Machine Guns are with Christy Hemme
Sabin: At Genesis we finally showed everyone why we are the best tag team in the world by beating the Britsh Invasion and putting this gold belts around our very attractive, well built, and quite staunch waists!
Shelley: Well said my friend. You see right now in TNA is a new dawn, and now that Detroit’s finest, the Motor City Machine Guns are your tag team champions of the world, your days are going to seem sunnier.
Sabin: Fun filled
Shelley: So TNA and Motor City Machine Gun fans be ready to keep smiling because these two good looking guys are going to be on your televsion screens for a long time to come!
Sabin: Say Christy what are you doing later on…. <Shelley and Sabin rub the tag titles on Christy…..>
A replay of Raven’s terroist attack on TNA is replayed. Raven attacking AJ and RVD. AJ being held hostage behind the wall of flames. Sting flying from the rafters to rescue his friend. Jarrett, RVD and Foley fighting Team 3D and Dr. Stevie and Sting and Raven brawling until Raven escapes….
RVD raises both his arms in victory but then immediately turns to help Jarrett who is unconscious, only to be it by Raven’s huge steel hook! The hook has a long chain attached to it and Raven quickly wraps it around RVD’s throat and puts the hook on the top rope. Raven snarls as he pulls back on the chain choking RVD. Team 3D and Jarrett lay in the ring with steel chairs and broken tables as RVD fights for his life.Main Event
The King of the Mountain Jeff Jarrett and the Whole Dam Show Rob Van Dam vs. Team 3D
Jarrett grabs a mic: What the hell is Raven up to Dvon? Ray? What the hell is going on?
Brother Ray: You know what Jarrett to be honest with you, we didn’t think to ask. He told us to kick anyone’s ass if they came near him. And the reason we said yes is simple. We like kicking people’s asses.
Walk by Pantera plays and out comes Rob Van Dam who rushes the ring with Jarrett.
Finish: The legendary hardcore team are masters of double teaming their opponents and keep attacking Jarrett, who hasn’t been in the ring for a long time. Team 3D take advantage of this and punish the TNA Founder with high impact side slams and body slams.
Jarrett reaches for a tag but Brother Ray brings his entire 350 pound frame down upon his spine and then dragged back for DVon to tag in. RVD can’t take it anymore and leaps over the ropes and delivers some punches of his own, but Ray and Dvon double team him and throw him to the floor. Ray then pushes Dvon…” DVon!! Get the tables!!”
DVon grabs and throws a table into the ring as the ref tries to stop them. RVD shakes off his fall, grabs a chair and quickly leaps onto the apron. He is not quick enough though and Jarrett is hit with the Dudley Death Drop (The 3D) through the table.
But almost simultaneous RVD comes crashing down on Ray with the 5 Star Frog Splash! RVD bounces to his feet and before Dvon knows what happened he catches the chair and is hit with a Vandaminator!! RVD drags Jarrett onto Ray and tells the ref to count. 1.2.3.
Winners via Pinfall Rob Van Dam and Jeff Jarrett at 8:37
AJ Styles runs out as does Mick Foley and Bret hart followed by security. Styles is metres ahead of everyone and runs into the ring. But He is hit by a Discuss Lariat from raven who was ready for the Champion. The hold on RVD has been released and he holds his throat in pain coughing and wheezing. Raven slithers out of the ring when Foley and security get there and Raven slinks into the fans.
Hart grabs a mic: Wait a minute Raven. What is this all about? Why are you doing this?
Raven pauses, he is in two minds whether to escape or to explain his actions. His ego seems to get the better of him and he flashes the cameras a grin and reaches over the guardrail grabbing a microphone. He licks his lips, and looks at Hart who is now standing in the ring and the security guards who line the guardrail with Foley.
RaVen: Oh though this be madness, you are all trying so hard to see any method in it. You see… STAY BACK… you see the dungeon grate shakes, and you will all see his glaring eyes. I am indeed infected and now so too is TNA. Tonight you all wallowed in the ashes of what I unleashed onto Genesis. I flooded the ring with the everlasting fires of the Stygian creek and tore down your precious champion with blazing agony, pandemonium and anguish.
And not even your Champion’s guardian angel could stop me. Not even your Icon could deter me. The misery I will bring to your house has only just begun. As I am an agent of chaos, and he has instructed me to turn TNA into his own private underworld.
Quote the RaVen………………..

Tenay: Tonight in an epic clash. One on one, Rob Van Dam takes on the maniacal RaVen.
RVD has hurt himself in the process but he gets his hand raised. He even walks over the unconscious Dr. Stevie and trash talks him.Match # 1
Rob Van Dam vs. Raven
RVD walks out first, greeting the fans high fiving all of them as he finally jumps into the ring. He stretches and awaits the man who viciously attacked him last week. But out walks Dr. Stevie with mic in hand.
Stevie: Did you all really think that because Bret Hart books Raven in a match that he is going to skip to his tune and wrestle?! All you people are even more dumb then Hart is to think that he can tell Raven what to do. Puh-lease!
Stevie walks down the ramp and gets into the ring so he look RVD in the eye. He lowers his voice as he talks to Van Dam….
Stevie: How’s your neck Rob? Does it hurt a little bit still? Can you breathe ok? You see Rob don’t go sticking your nose in Raven’s business otherwise what he did to you last week my friend, was just an appetizer, he’ll dish up the main course next time. And it will be big enough for you to choke on… you understand….
RVD smashes Stevie with a leaping, spinning thrust kick to the face! Stevie rolls out of the ring holding his face, he is hurt…
Out walks Bret Hart: Richards! If Raven won’t wrestle RVD, then you will. Referee this is now a hardcore rules match. Ring the bell!
Match change: RVD vs. Stevie Richards
Hart walks to the back as Stevie can’t believe what is happening, but has no time to think about it as RVD has quickly climbed the turnbuckle and hit him with a somersault senton!!!! RVD high fives a fan as Richards is down. RVD grabs a chair…
Finish: Stevie has been beaten pillar to post as the Whole Dam Show has hit van daminators and chair shots to Raven’s lackey. But RVD has refused to cover him as he wants to inflict more punishment. But finally after bringing out a ladder and destroying Stevie with several battering rams and rolling thunders onto the steel… RVD sets it up and after placing a steel chair on the prone body of RVD hits the 6 Star frog splash!! 1.2.3
Winner via pinfall Rob Van Dam at 5:19
But suddenly Team 3D attack. Both men with chairs hit RVD! Brother Ray screams at the crowd as Devon grabs a table. But Jeff Jarrett runs down and tries to make the save. But with Rob already down Jarrett is over come with a two on one beat down. Team 3D are back to their violent worst and they starting putting the boots and chairs to Jarrett and Rob.
But the lights go out!!! The big screen lights up the Icon Sting’s entrance video and the Impact Zone speakers play ‘Slay Me’. The fans explode as when the lights come on, Ray and Devon are facing the entrance tunnel, but the Stinger has somehow appeared in the ring behind them!!! From the fans going berserk, Team 3D know they have been tricked and turn around slowly to see the Icon with baseball bat in hand. Sting is in between Team 3D and the hurt and kneeling Jarrett and RVD. Team 3D and Sting pause for a bit until Sting lowers his bat. He turns around to face Jarrett and RVD and Jarrett realises it’s not Sting…
Jarrett quickly tries to get to his feet but he is struck in the temple with the baseball bat! RVD still in pain cannot protect himself and is hit several times in the ribs and back viciously!! Team 3D laughing, throw “Sting” a wet cloth as he wipes off the makeup and takes off the black wig revealing himself as RaVen. The paint runs down his face as Brother Ray hands him a mic. Licking his lips the camera closes up on him
Raven: Icon it was very easy to take your identity, to take your image, to take your form. Very soon I’ll take your career. There is no cure for this cancer. TNA burns and you Icon… you, get a front row seat as I’ll hold you up to witness it all after I put your head on a stick! Quote the Raven…............................................ ........
Raven slithers out of the ring ever so slowly as he finishes his words. Almost in slow motion he climbs over the guard rail and disappears into the fans. RVD and Jarrett are hurt lying in the ring as Ray and Devon walk to the back….
Tenay: We are back from the commercial break and as you can see what happened during, Bret Hart and Mick Foley led out security. Foley confronted Team 3D who put their hands up not caring as Hart checks on Jarrett and RVD.
Back live as medical staff look them over after being brutally attacked by chairs and baseball bat shots.
West: My god Mike the Impact Zone is just chaos right now. Raven has everyone on high alert.
Tenay: You don’t have to tell me Don I’ve still got 7 stitches in my forehead to remind me of how dangerous Raven is. As EMTs help Jeff and RVD, we’ll send it to the back with JB who has an exclusive interview with Petey Williams.
JB: Thanks Mike, I have with me the man who has caused as much damage around here as Raven has. The Canadian Destroyer Petey Williams.
Williams: JB it’s really simple. The Hitman is the reason a lot of us do what we do. He is Canada’s national hero; he is every Canadian’s hero. He’s my hero. I’m sick of the U.S. thinking they have the best athletes the best wrestlers and then when they realise they will never be better than the best. They disrespect the best. Well it’s been going on here too long when it comes to Kurt Angle. You see Eric Young was an example. Angle was a statement.
You see Angle has been here for 4 years. Has he had one match with Alex Shelley? Has he ever wrestled Chris Sabin? Has he ever faced me? The answer to these questions is no. Angle knows he can’t keep up with the super talented guys here in TNA and so ducks us. He keeps us down because he knows we would beat him. In fact he is scared of what something like the Canadian Destroyer would do to him and his precious little neck. You’ve ducked me and held the talent in this company down long enough Angle.
<spliced into Petey’s promo is the slow motion replay of his devastating Destroyer to Angle>
I was the Captain of Team Canada and Coach D’More taught me well. You will all respect Bret, Canada and me, even without him endorsing me. Even if I have to drive everyone’s skulls in the canvas to do it…

Backstage Christy Hemme is with Desmond WolfeMatch #2
Beer Money Inc. vs. LAX w/ Konnan
LAX enter through their border entrance near the Spanish announce table. While Storm drives down the ramp on the boozer cruiser with Roode ready for action.
Finish: The viciousness of the Latin American eXchange continues and they seem to be going for the throat. Konnan directs traffic as Cide has worked on Roode’s legs and knees. Hernandez’ brute power has forced Storm to use quicker tags to try and change the angles of the match.
Roode and Homicide both hit a flying body block! The impact is huge as both men are down. Storm reaches out from the apron as Hernandez smacks the turnbuckle to try and wake his partner up and get to him. The ref starts the obligatory 10 count. As the ref does everyone seems distracted and from the back come Chris Harris. He pulls Storm’s legs off the apron and has a pair of handcuffs in his hand. Using them as brass knucks, he punches Storm and then handcuffs the Tennessee Cowboy to the bottom rope. Storm is trapped, as Harris walks off taunting his old partner with the key.
Konnan has realised that Storm cannot help his partner and Roode is all alone. Storm desperately tries to escape the cuffs but all he can do is watch on as the militant thugs Cide and Dez lick their chops. Roode is torn apart by several double team moves. Right in front of Storm’s eyes Roode is hit with a Border Toss, but Konnan orders more punishment. The Notorious 187 hits the Gringo-Killa! But Konnan is not satisfied. ‘Cide sets up the deadly vertebreaker move again, but this time Hernandez climbs to the top turnbuckle and flying off it, increases the Gringo-Killa’s effect ten fold!!! 1.2.3
Winners via pinfall the Latin American eXchange at 7:25
Storm looks at Roode prone body and looks like a beaten man. Konnan after his team gets their arms raised make sure he walks his team by the handcuffed cowboy. Storm lashes out with his legs as Konnan smirks at him. Homicide makes the noise of an uzi and Hernandez dusts off his shoulder at Storm. The referee calls for medics as TNA has turned into a war zone as a wrestler seems to be extremely hurt in every match.
Hemme: Desmond everyone wants to know why you attacked Jeff Hardy last week.
Wolfe: Listen up love. Jeff hardy waltzes into TNA and on his first night here in a big PR stunt gets a world title shot. I don’t care where he’s come from and what he’s achieved elsewhere. Here in TNA you kick arse and you earn your shots. Now I walked into TNA and took out Kurt Mangled. Former World Champion, do I get a title shot. No. Do I get a number 1 contenders match. No. So you see Christy the Wolfe has do things his way around here.
Jeff Hardy your pathetic sunshine and tonight in my tag match against you it will be so easy to rip you apart. So I tell ya what we are gonna do. You bring your punk arse to the ring, and I’ll hit you wif da tower of London and then you won’t be in a position to get anymore title shots. And as for you Matt Morgan, I’ve already beaten you twice. It’s like those girls that just won’t get the hint that you’re not interested in ‘em. Get the hint and stay outta my way or tonight, I’ll end ya… It’s that easy…
West: What a match Mike. Red wants his title back and he just put in an impressive performance against the newcomer to the TNA roster Alexander Koslov.Match #3
Amazing Red vs. Alexander Koslov
Finish: Koslov has taunted Red the entire match. The Russian Hooligan grabs Red and goes for his double underhook pile driver, Red is able to reverse it with a back body drop. Red looks for a spinning bicycle kick, but Alex ducks and catches Red in a fireman’s carry and delivers a vicious Death Valley Driver! Red is hurt and Koslov catches his breathe before ascending the turnbuckles. Red seems out and Alex pauses on the top trying to taunt the crowd. He unleashes his Russian frog elbow (Frog splash that turns into an elbow drop) but Red moves and Koslov is hurt. Red takes advantage and hits the Red Star Press (standing moonsault)…1…2…. Kickout!
Red grabs Koslov but he busts out of Red’s grip and punches him in the face! Red drops and Koslov shakes off his fist and delivers a drop kick to Red’s face. Koslov signals for the finish and sets up for the Red Square/Scare but Red escapes and reverses it into a Tornado DDT! Red climbs the turnbuckles, wobbly but he gets there and delivers the Infra Red (540 corkscrew senton).1.2.3
Winner via pinfall Amazing Red at 5:01
Tenay: I think it’s only a matter of time to when he gets another shot at X Division Gold…
Backstage a camera follows AJ Styles into a locker room. Camera’s flash as Jeff Jarrett and RVD are being helped by medical staff. Styles is visibly angry at another Raven attack. JB tries to get a comment from the World Champ but he is too concerned about the King of the Mountain and The Whole Dam Show. He checks on them and can’t believe what is happening. Foley walks in and tries to calm AJ down. Styles tells Foley to deal with Raven. Foley says he and Bret will handle it.
Backstage, Christy Hemme is with Jeff HardyMatch #4
Awesome Kong and the Beautiful People vs. Hamada, Gail Kim and Tara
Finish: The Beautiful People have both fallen to the floor after a quick exchange from Hamada and Gail. Kong has been stunned by a kick to the temple by Hamada and has gone to one knee in the ring. Hamada and Gail both climb turnbuckles and as Sky and Love look up Hamada hits a moonsault and Gail flies down with a huge cross body block! The Beautiful People are down as the ref tries to get order. But as Kong gets to her feet she stands up right into a determined Knockout Champion. Tara and Kong almost burn holes in each other with a stare down that seems to last forever until they both attack! They exchange blows but neither woman refuses to fall.
Tara and Kong both reverse quickly bouncing off the ropes to get momentum but it is Kong who comes out on top smashing Tara flying side ways into the corner turnbuckle. Her body lands with a thud as Kong keeps advancing. Pulling Tara up by her hair she sets for the powerbomb. As she sends Tara up, Gail flies in and clips Kong’s legs. Tara lands on Kong and the ref makes the count. 1.2…kickout!
Kong rolls out of the ring, as Sky and Love are back in. They are both hot with a drop toe hold and then thrown out of the ring as Hamada and Gail once again throw them into the guard rail and ensure they take no further part in the match. Kong comes through the ropes and Tara sets on her with big boots to body, but Kong out of nowhere hits a spinning back fist. Implant Bustaaaahhh!! 1.2.3 Kong has pinned the Champion!!
Winners via pinfall Awesome Kong and the Beautiful People at 5:40
Kong jumps down to the floor, as Gail and Hamada roll in to check on their partner. Kong snatches the KO title belt and throws it into the ring. The Beautiful people are already half way up the ramp laughing and trash talking their opposition.
Hardy: Last week I got jumped from behind after one of the biggest wins of my career against Scott Steiner. Steiner has travelled the world winning tag titles and world titles. It took everything I had and more to beat him. And then I get hit from behind by Desmond Wolfe. Well I heard what you said Wolfe earlier on, but you wanted to challenge me all you had to do was ask. So tonight I hope you are ready because I’ve got Swanton bomb ready for you.
In the parking garage an orange Nissan GT-R ‘2011’ Concept car pulls in. Out gets a man in a suit and Hiroshi Tanahashi. Tenay elaborates and states that the man in the suit is Tanahashi’s lawyer and interpreter.
Out to the ring walks Samoa Joe.
Joe: Last week I was resting up after a war with Abyss at Genesis and what do I see but Christopher Daniels running his mouth and challenging me to a match while I’m not there. Daniels at Genesis I slayed a monster, do you really think you can stop me? You see this is all funny to me because of all the people in the back, Daniels I would have thought you wouldn’t want any more of the Samoan Submission Machine I guess I was wrong.
Daniels walks out to the top of the entrance ramp.
Daniels: So what’s your answer Joe? Yes or no? Because it sounded like a cowards way of getting out of my challenge.
Joe: You talk about being a coward Daniels from all the way up there. Why don’t you pop in here and ask me to my face.
Daniels: You think I’m afraid of you Joe?
Daniels snaps off his “Morpheus’ sunglasses and jacket while walking into the ring. He walks right up to Joe and looks him dead in the eye.
Daniels: I’ve taken your best shots Joe. So here I am in your face. Kingdom Come. Yes or No?
Joe: You want to step in the ring me after you saw what I did to Abyss… Your funeral Daniels at Kingdom Come, Joe’s gonna kill you.
Daniels stands back as Joe is smashed in the spine by Abyss!!!! The monster has a steel chain wrapped around his fist. He swings for Daniels also but the Fallen Angle dives out of the ring before it can connect…
Mitchell walks out looking at Daniels and the two men exchange looks until Mitchell gives him a “I’ll get you next time” look and shrug. Daniels backs up to the top of the ramp and witnesses Abyss hit a blackhole slam on Joe!
Tenay and West welcome everyone back from commercial with a replay of the Daniels/Joe promo and the attack from Abyss on Joe.
Match # 5
Jay Lethal vs. Mistico
The Pope DiAngelo Dinero the X Division Champion comes out to be a guest commentator.
Finish: Mistico has Lethal down and prepares to go for a moonsault but Senshi runs out and lands a kick to the back of his leg. Mistico goes head first onto the mat! Senshi puts the boots to him and the referee calls for the bell.
Lethal joins in and this brings the Pope off commentary. Pope makes the save.
But out walks Jerry Lynn, X Pioneer. Lynn says he is restarting this match as a tag team match.
Jay Lethal and Senshi vs. The Pope and Mistico
Finish: Lethal release Dragon Suplexes Pope. Pope holding his mid section is unable to tag out as Senshi is brought in and lands some vicious kicks to the Champion. Mistico reaches out but Senshi delivers a Tidal Krush in the corner and then tags in Lethal who hits an elbow drop! 1.2…. kickout!

Senshi roars and goes after Mistico. But as he does Lethal is quickly schoolboyed by Dinero.1.2..kickout! Lethal is livid and delivers a drop kick to Pope’s face. He drags the Champion into the centre of the ring, and sets him for another Dragon Suplex. Mistico on the outside traps Senshi leg when he goes for a kick and is able to turn it into a sunset flip powerbomb on the floor! As Lethal tries the suplex Pope grapevines the leg to stop the finisher and ducks to allow Mistico to deliver a devastating superkick. Pope makes the cover 1.2.3
Winners via pinfall Mistico and the X Division Champion DiAngelo Dinero at 6:21
Pope and Mistico celebrate on the outside as the Pope’s music plays. But the music is quickly changed to the World Tag Team Champion’s theme song as The Motor City Machine Guns walk out applauding Pope and Mistico’s win.
Shelley: Well done, that was an awesome match! You guys should team more often.
Sabin: And Senshi and Lethal, you guys should never tag again, ever, you sucked!
Senshi can’t believe the disrespect, but referees force him and Lethal to leave the ring side area as The Champs take centre stage. The Guns high five the Pope and Mistico as they continue to celebrate up the ramp.
Sabin: Now Alex, Kingdom Come is coming up and what do we have in store for the good folks on pay per view?
Shelley: Well funny you should ask that Chris because it’s a MCMG title defence!
Sabin: man that is going to be the coolest match ever? Who are we facing by the way? Is it the snobby former chumps the British Persuasion?
Shelley: Could be my friend it could be, but you see it’s all up to the Hitman, because he’s running the show right now, but I tell you what it could be anyone, Those drunks Beer Money, the old, fat, bald Team 3D, those new guys who are trying to rip off our gimmick.
But out walk NEO-1-GT, Paul London and Brian Kendrick. They stride down the ramp and leap into the ring showing off their athleticism to the Guns only for the Champs to yawn in their faces…
Sabin: Hey Alex look it’s the uglier, older, less talented rejects. Are these the guys you were talking about?
London: Nice. But much to be expected from a couple of computer game playing geeks from Detroit.
Shelley: Hey Chris, I didn’t know Paul London could talk!?!?!
Kendrick: Listen up jokers we took out Beer Money and Team 3D at the same time. We’ve beaten anyone that Bret Hart has put in front of us, and we want those World Tag Championships.
Sabin: Hey Alex, THE Bon Jovi wannabe thinks they even deserve a title shot...
Out walks The British Invasion
Magnus: Listen up I’m only going to say this once. The title shot is ours, we want our rematch. We don’t care if it’s at Kingdom Come or right now, but you will give us what is ours.
Shelley: That’s fair. So I tell you what, how about you tell these losers that, and we’ll see you at the ppv...
The Guns leave, as the Brits and NEO-ONE get in each other’s faces. There’s a bit of push and shove until Williams pie faces Kendrick. London attacks him, only to have Magnus come over the top with a clothesline! The Brits throw London and Kendrick out of the ring as The MCMGs laugh on the entrance ramp...
In the back then we see the Blueprint head towards the ring and then we cut to from another part of the building the hulking Big Poppa Pump also headed to the ring.
Jeff Hardy and Matt Morgan vs. Scott Steiner and Desmond Wolfe
Finish: Morgan holds Wolfe by his side in a slide slam position, but he looks at his imaginary watch and unceremoniously dumps his hated rival to the mat like a piece of garbage. Wolfe grabs his back and looks for Steiner, but finally Morgan tags in Hardy who goes straight for Wolfe. Hardy hits the extreme leg drop, and then hits the compactor for the pin. 1.2.... kickout at 2.9...
Hardy wipes the hair from his face and Irish whips Wolfe into the ropes but Wolfe comes off them and ducks Hardy’s flying clothesline/shoulder block. Wolfe rests and rolls over to tag in Steiner. The powerhouse picks up Hardy with his own score to settle after last week’s loss and dumps him on his back with a powerslam. Steiner does it again, and then again and then again. Hardy’s back bows up and Steiner hits a boot to the face before tagging in Wolfe. He holds up Hardy and Wolfe bounces off the centre rope to give himself more momentum for his finishing lariat, but Morgan has read the set up and before Wolfe can connect he is hit in the side of the face with the Carbon Footprint! Wolfe rolls out of the ring by the sheer force of strike while Hardy slips out of Steiner’s grasp grabs his feet and trips him over for a reverse schoolboy. 1.2.. Steiner kicks out!
Hardy punches Steiner as Morgan goes after Wolfe on the outside. Steiner is dazed and Hardy climbs the turnbuckle and hits a whisper in the wind. 1.2.. Steiner kicks out again! Hardy knows how tough this monster of a man can be and knows he must deliver a knockout blow. Hardy goes for the Twist of Fate but Steiner pushes Hardy off and delivers a Steinerline! Steiner drags Hardy to middle of the ring and locks in the Steiner Recliner. Hardy fights for his life in the torturous submission move. With Steiner’s power in his arms, Hardy starts to bend inhumanly. Morgan though jumps back into the ring and delivers a Carbon Footprint to Steiner to break the hold. Steiner goes down but rolls to the ring apron, just under the ropes. Morgan tries to grab the Genetic Freak by the hair to pull him back into the ring but he is smashed into the turnbuckle by a recovered Wolfe. Morgan bounces out of the corner as Wolfe runs to the opposite corner jumps off the middle turnbuckle for extra speed and delivers a crushing running Euro uppercut! Morgan is dazed and Wolfe uses the middle rope again, by bending his back through the ropes and rebounding out with a thunderous lariat......1.2.3
Winners by pinfall Desmond Wolfe and Scott Steiner at 11:51
Wolfe has pinned Morgan again! And he lets Morgan know it! But out of the corner of his eye, Hardy is getting to his feet grabbing his back in pain. Wolfe doesn’t let the opportunity go by and smashes Hardy with his deadly Lariat! He stands on Hardy’s head “IT’S THAT EAAAAZZZY!”
Tenay and West welcome everyone back from commercial as the ring has been set up with a table and three podiums. First out walks Bret Hart. He gets behind the centre podium and explains to everyone that this will be the official contract signing for the Main Event at Kingdom Come for the World title.
Out walks Tanahashi with his interpreter/lawyer first and then the World Champ AJ Styles.
Hart: For the second month in a row, I dare say that we have a Dream Match on our hands. The very best in the World AJ Styles vs. the very best of Japan Hiroshi Tanahashi. The Phenomenal One vs. The Ace of the Universe for the coveted title of calling themselves World’s best. And the only way you get to do that is to be the man left standing holding that belt.
AJ signs the contract. Hiroshi then has a look at it and gets his lawyer’s opinion. Hiroshi then looks at AJ and with a arrogant smirk talks in Japanese. His interpreter states that Tanahashi said that he will take the World title from AJ Styles because he is the Ace of the Universe, and better than Styles in every way.
Styles: Tanahashi. I know how good you are. Hell, the reason you’re here is because I brokered a deal to bring you in because TNA deserves the very best competing to be the very best. So at Kingdom Come I’m going to bring everything I have to defend MY World Heavyweight Championship. There has been a lot of things going on around here and it’s all been a bit of a distraction lately. Raven, Petey Williams, Team 3D it’s all starting to wear on me. Now listen up Hiroshi because I know you understand English and you don’t really need this guy here. But I’ll say it slow enough for you to remember.
Styles walks up to Tanahashi getting almost right in his face. He talks quite lightly but very firmly
Styles: You try and low blow me at Kingdom Come I’ll take your damn head off.
Hiroshi smugly smiles signs the contract and flicks the pen in Styles’ face! The Japanese Ace dives out of the ring, gives Styles the finger and walks to the back.
Hart and Styles look at each other.
But just as Tanahashi and his lawyer exit ringside there is a huge crashing noise. Hart and AJ look up at the ramp as it bursts into flames and AJ’s Ford Mustang comes crashing through the giant screen!!!!!!!!!!
It flips through the canvas screen ripping it and burning it on the way through!!! The car crashes on its roof on the top of the ramp on fire. The Impact Zone fans run from the ramp in a panic as fire spews out of the screen and the car.
Out of the tunnel of smoke walks Raven. He flings the fake Sting trench coat into the flaming car in front of him and walks around in front of it. A wall of flame builds behind him as he stands looking down at the ring at the Hitman and the Champion with mic in hand.
TNA - We Are Wrestling
The Impact Zone’s screen explodes into flames from all different angles as AJ Styles’ burning car flips through the screen, ripping it and burning it up as it crashes roof first on to the entrance ramp. Over and over again, the frightening image replays with Raven’s face faded into the fire looking into the camera with fire mirrored in his yellow eyes saying …Nevermoooooooooooorrrrre
Mike Tenay and Don West recount the terror that Raven forced onto TNA and the Impact Zone. They replay the explosion and the Champion’s Ford Mustang crashing through the screen and smashing onto the ramp. And then Raven walking out spreading his arms in his pose taunting Bret Hart and AJ Styles.
Tenay: What a frightening scene last week Don when Raven set the World Champion’s car on fire and sent to it crashing through the giant Impact Zone screen to land and explode almost hurting the fans, production crew, wrestlers and even us Don.
West: It was absolutely terrifying Mike, I couldn’t believe it when it happened! Raven is out of control, and he is truly doing what he said he would do and that is burn TNA to the ground. What audacity Mike to raven show by destroying the World Champion’s car as a weapon to almost destroy the Impact Zone and could have even hurt or killed some of the fans!
Tenay: Raven is sending a message. The World Champion is of course the flagship, the symbol that is TNA and Raven has set his sights on him, to make his statement!
West; Not only that but we all know how close AJ Styles and Sting are. Raven has openly stated time after time that it is Sting he is after, and by attacking Styles he emotionally hurts the Icon also. It’s truly a shocking situation right now in TNA.
Tenay: You’re right Don, I wouldn’t want to be in Bret Hart’s shoes right now. And Speaking of the TNA partner he is coming out now to make a formal statement about the situation that many having been calling the Raven Saga….
Out to the ring walks Bret “The Hitman’ Hart accompanied by Mick Foley
Hart: When I came on board I had a vision for TNA. I vision to make the company the greatest “prowrestling” company in the world. I had many things that I wanted to achieve and many matches that needed to happen here in TNA. When Raven first started his attacks, I was asked by Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley to let them handle the situation, because I had such a big work load to deal with. I am the head of Heavyweight, the Tag Team and Knockout Divisions and they said that I didn’t have time to deal with a psychopath like Raven. Well last week, not only did Raven injure Rob Van Dam and Jeff Jarrett he almost killed all you great fans in the Impact Zone and even myself and the World Champion. He almost burned this building to the ground and with it TNA itself. So I have no option but to become involved.
As of right now I declare Raven TNA’s first and only Public Enemy number 1.I have seen the now attack people. I’ve seen Stone Cold Steve Austin drive a monster truck over The Rock’s car. But I have never seen anyone pull off basically a terrorist act like he has.
So tonight I would like to finish this, so Raven I hope you are listening to me right now. Tonight I want to talk to you face to face. I want to get to the bottom of this. Right here in this ring tonight.
Out walks Team 3D to the top of the ramp.
Brother Ray: Hitman, we’ve got a message from Raven to you. Like we said before we don’t know what Raven is up to, we just like hitting people and putting them through tables. But he just rung me on my little cell phone here and said that he will meet you in the ring tonight face to face for a chat. On one condition. That it is only the two of you. Man to man, and inside the six …sides…. of…. steel.
Hart: Fine whatever for me to talk him out of whatever has planned.
Brother Ray: I’m not finished Hitman! Raven said that you will both be locked in so you wont be disturbed and Raven gets the key!
Brother Devon: Testify haha
Hart: Raven! Let’s finish this tonight I will see you in the six sides!!!
Foley can’t believe what Hart has agreed to and begs him to reconsider…
Tenay: Oh my god, a six sides of steel confrontation tonight. Hart is going to be trapped inside a cage with Raven!
West: This is crazy Mike, after what happened last week, there is nothing Raven isn’t capable of. This will be extremely dangerous for Bret.
Backstage JB is with Konnan and the LAX.
Konnan: Hey JB there’s a lot of violence and chaos happening here in TNA right now. And you know what LAX is loving every second of it. You see we are militant thugs 365, and we don’t care about people getting hurt, all we care about is showing that Latino’s are better in that ring than anyone. We keep bulldozing anyone that gets in our way and soon, those tag titles will be around our waists. Ariba la raza!
In the Impact Zone LAX walk out from their side entrance with the border gate and sit up with the Spanish announce team. They lay all over the desk awaiting to watch the next match.
Konnan: Guns don’t bother getting up we aren’t here for you. You see these guys are walking around as if they really are going to wear those belts. But you see no one is going to be able to stop us. So Champs let’s just make things easy, go back and tell Bret Hart and tell them we are the number one contenders, because no one is going to beat us anyway. Then shine those belts up because we like our bling looking good.Match #1
Neo-1-GT vs. The British Invasion
Finish: Williams suplexes London to the mat. He floats over and goes for the cover1.2. London rolls the shoulder and quickly rotates his body to have Williams in an arm bar! Magnus breaks the hold with a stomp to the shoulder before the ref sends him back to the apron.
London tags in Kendrick who struts into the ring only to be chopped to the mat by Williams. Magnus is tagged in and stomps away on Kendrick continuously until he stops and yells out to the fans. He pulls Kendrick up and knocks him back down with a European uppercut. He does it again. He smugly grabs his wrist and does the Brit pose before tagging in Williams. The two men double team Kendrick and whip him into the ropes, he bounces off ducks the double clothesline and turn into a double drop kick!
All me are down as London smacks the turnbuckle for the tag. London reaches out to pull the trigger on the hot tag but he doesn’t get the chance. Hernandez and Homicide attack taking out all four men.
The ref calls for the bell
Winners: No Contest at 5:20
Konnan stands in front of the Tag Champions and tells them to sit down. He grabs a mic.
Tenay: What do you think guys, who will be your opposition at Kingdom Come?
Shelley: Konnan can flap his gums all night, but anyone can attack those guys after the match they just had.
Sabin: I think they are very greedy they’ve already got the Global title they should be happy with that.
Shelley; Yes Hernandez is a very selfish young man, maybe one of us should challenge him for his title.
Sabin: That’s not a bad idea Champ
Shelley: Thanks Champ
West: Well guys, you can joke all you want but LAX are on a rampage you will have to face them sooner or later...
Tenay Standing by with Christy Hemme is the Knockout Champion Tara
Hemme: Thanks Mike, standing with me is the Knockout Champion Tara. Tara after the huge match last week what has Bret Hart and you come up with for your next challenger?
Tara: Tonight there will be a big time, hard hitting, big fight battle to decide the # 1 contender to MY Knockout title. Hamada vs. Awesome Kong after Hamada faced me last month and even though I don’t want to admit it Kong pinned me last week in the 6 person tag.

Hamada quickly poses to the crowd as Kong rolls to the ropes to try and pull herself up. Hamada doesn’t take a backward step and drops a knee on Kong’s chest. She then climbs the second turnbuckle awaiting Kong to stand right where she wants her. Hamada hits a moonsault and covers Kong. 1.2…. Kong kickouts and doesn’t seem to have answers for Hamada’s attacks.
Kong slowly gets to her feet and as Hamada comes again off the ropes Kong explodes off her knee and swamps her with a huge clothesline. Hamada falls to the ground and Kong puts the boots to her. Kong pulls her up by her hair and sets her for an awesome bomb. Hamada escapes bounces off the ropes and goes for another elbow strike, but she is caught with a spinning back fist.

As Kong walks out of the ring, JB is there to interview her.
JB: Kong, congratulations you will now go on to face Tara at Kingdom Come for the Knockout title.
Kong pushes JB away and walks up the ramp. She looks back at the damage she has done, and walks off.
Hardy: Wolfe, I get it you don’t like me. Well man, now I don’t like you. You have attacked me twice and I’m sick of it. So the question is, are you brave enough to come at me to my face. I challenge you to a match at Kingdom Come. I’ll show you what living for the moment is all about!
Out to the ring walks The Canadian Destroyer, Petey Williams
Williams: Over the last few weeks my management team and I have been in several talks with TNA management, Bret Hart, and others. And it seems no one wants to wrestle me. That’s right. They are all too scared to face me. No one will step in the ring with me because they are all afraid that I will end their career. So Bret hart, I know you are listening. I guess that makes me the number contender to the World title. And right here I want you to grant me a World title shot against who ever is the Champion after Kingdom Come, be it Styles or Tanahashi I don’t care. If no one will face me then you have only one option Hart!
Suddenly the big screen lights up and two cars arrive in the parking lot, one behind the other. Out gets Kurt Angle!!!!!
Wearing t shirt and jeans he slams his car door and walks towards the arena. Quickly getting out of the car behind him is Karen Angle. She screams for him to stop. She runs after him and grabs him by the arm to stop him. She pleads with him to not go out and face Williams.
Angle grabs her and tells her to stay away. He pulls his arm from her grip and stomps off.
Angle’s music hits in the Impact Zone as out runs the American Hero to meet his assailant. Williams can’t believe his eyes as Angle dives under the ropes and slides due to his jeans right at Williams. Petey tries to put the boots to Angle but he shrugs off the shots and hits a kick of his own! He several European Uppercuts which send Petey flying into the air they are hit with such force!
Williams rolls across the ropes but he can’t seem to find his bearings as Kurt kicks him in the gut and then hits a hellacious powerbomb into the turnbuckles! Williams slumps the mat and Angle goes for the Ankle lock, but Williams quickly crawls out of the ring and hits the floor, he runs away as Angle demands a microphone.
Angle: Petey! No one wants to wrestle you? Not any more! At Kingdom Come you will face me and I’m going to break you in half! Oh it’s real It’s DAMN real!!!
Angle’s music plays as Williams looks like he has seen a ghost and crawls backwards up the ramp as the crowd goes crazy for the Olympic Gold medallist…..
A replay of what happened earlier in the night as Bret Hart will meet with raven inside the six sides of steel to try and stop the madness that plagues TNA, tonight!Match #3
Matt Morgan and Generation Me vs. Desmond Wolfe, Scott Steiner and Jay Lethal
Finish: Wolfe and Morgan have taken into the fans as Gen Me fly all over the ring trying to put down Lethal, in extremely fast combo moves. Steiner is too slow for them and hit him from all angles. But finally Jeremy cross body’s into Steiner only to be caught by the mastodon of a man and he quickly transitions the much smaller man into a T-Bone suplex!
Steiner locks in the Recliner as Lethal keeps Max at bay. Jeremy can do nothing but tap to the gargantuan arms wrapped under his chin and crushing his spine.

Steiner with raised arms bad mouths Morgan on the way up the ramp.
Mistico vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi
Tenay mentions that since the International Lucha Libre star has had such an impact since his debut, Jerry Lynn and Bret Hart have put together this big time exhibition match for Impact. The number one contender wanted a challenge to ensure he was ready for the World Champion and he has got it tonight!
Finish: The fast furious pace of this match has taken its toll on both competitors. Both men are on all fours catching their breathe as either man seems to have an answer for the other. Mistico quickly explodes to his feet and goes for a hurricanrana only to be pushed away, but is able to land on his feet and delivers a drop kick.

Winner via pinfall Hiroshi Tanahashi at 9:31
An exhausted number 1 contender insists his arm is raised and rolls out of the ring a little annoyed at how he was almost defeated by the masked Mexican superstar.
Senshi comes out from backstage with a mic: Mistico, I have seen Jerry Lynn and he has granted me a match at Kingdom Come against you. Prepare yourself because I am going to rip you apart.
JB is backstage with the X Division Champion DiAngelo Dinero
Dinero: BJ, It’s time for Pope to ensure that his congregation is ready to party, because Kingdom Come is Pope’s ppv. You see BJ, it is in the Kingdom of Pope that Jay Lethal will renounce his sins and Pope will exonerate him for all his evil deeds. Because Pope is going take his papal glove and strike Jay lethal down until he realises the truth. That Pope is the X division Champion and Pope is pimpin’
Christy Hemme chases after Kurt and Karen Angle with her camera man.
Hemme: Kurt, Kurt! Please wait up. You have just challenged Petey Williams to a match at Kingdom Come?? How are you feeling, are you going to be able to get in the ring? Are you even cleared to wrestle?
Karen: Christy try and talk some sense into him…
Angle: Listen up! I don’t care if I am not cleared to wrestle. You tell Bret Hart that he makes the match happen because if he doesn’t I’ll bring the roof down on top of him. I’m going to snap Petey Williams ankle, and then, his arms and then his freakin’ neck. That’s damn real!
Karen tries to talk to Kurt as he tells her to get in the car.
Hemme: There you have it Mike and Don, Kurt Angle wants Petey Williams at Kingdom Come.
Tenay: Kurt’s temper is going to be the end of him Don. He is clearly in no shape to wrestle Petey Williams.
Don: Well we all saw what Kurt is capable of today as he gave Petey a thrashing out there. He has reminded us all several times that he won a gold medal with a broken neck, maybe he thinks he can get his revenge too with one. Who knows?
The Wildcat Chris Harris vs. Samoa Joe
The ring crew begin to assemble the six sides of steel as a video package recounts the events of the “Raven Saga”During the match, Beer Money Inc. walk down and stand with their arms crossed watching the match hoping to see a Joe victory and to stop any of Harris’ shenanigans.
Finish: Harris’ leaping clothesline connects and knocks down Joe. Harris flexes at Beer Money, but Joe stands straight back up no selling the shot. Harris continues to taunts Beer Money until he turns into smiling Joe. Joe’s smile quickly turns to open handed palm thrusts as he smacks Harris all the way into the corner. He then Irish whips him to the opposite corner and follows it up with a tree trunk sized knee strike to the Wildcat’s face! Joe stands over the slumped former AMW member and then picks him up and places him on the turnbuckle. He pulls his head down and locks in the Muscle Buster. Beer Money cheer on Joe as he stands with one arm holding Harris up and then dorps him on his head and neck! But Joe isn’t finished he locks in the Coquina Clutch and Harris taps immediately!
Winner via submission Samoa Joe at 4:47
Beer Money enter the ring slowly making sure they don’t piss off the Samoan Submission Machine. Joe walks up the ramp as Beer Money get in the ring and pour beer all over Harris laughing as they do it!
Up on the ramp Joe raises his hands in victory, but from behind a huge metal chain throws over his head. Abyss roars as he again chokes Joe! Joe leads him over to the side of the ramp trying to throw him off but the monster squeezes. Joe goes down to one knee and Abyss now has the leverage. He continues to choke Joe until from out of the tunnel springs Rob Van Dam. He hits a perfect thrust kick to Abyss’ face to make the monster let go. Joe falls to all fours coughing as his neck again has been injured.
RVD and Abyss battle on the edge of the stage. Rob uses kicks and strikes as the Monster lashes out with the chain. He grabs Roode in a bear hug and tries to squeeze the life out of him, right on the edge of the stage.
But then out walks the Fallen Angle from the tunnel. He surveys the situation, smiles, and pushes both RVD and Abyss off the edge and through the staging area, tables and electrical equipment! He looks down and smiles at what he has just done.
Daniels then walks over to Joe and delivers a swift kick to the gut of Joe. The big man grabs his mid section as the Fallen Angel poses on the ramp.
• Raven’s initial promo 7 January on the three hour special edition of Impact.
• His attack on Mike Tenay and perching himself on the commentary table.
• Raven attacks AJ Styles at Genesis and sets the ring on fire.
• Sting and Raven fight before he escapes
• The attack on RVD, choking him with the chain and steel hook.
• Dressing up like Sting and attacking RVD and Jarrett the following week.
• Wiping the face paint off his face leaving hideous streaks
• The explosion of the screen, the car crashing down onto the ramp, the fans running for their lives
• Raven standing in front of the World Champion’s burning wreck with his arms outstretched.
A sea of security surround Bret Hart as he makes his way to the ring. He is flanked by Jeff Jarrett holding his throat, but with a guitar swung over his shoulder and Mick Foley with his trademark barbed-wire baseball bat.
The security team lines the entrance ramp as Jeff and Mick wish Bret luck as he steps into the steel structure. The Hitman hesitates, for a second thinking what he is about to do, and then walks inside and gives his trademark pose to try and draw energy, confidence and a little bit of courage from them.
Foley: Raven, Bret Hart is in the ring and is ready to talk.
Raven’s music plays as from the “Raven’s Nest” emerges the maniacal terrorist. He is wearing a full white suit and carrying a cane with a silver skull adorned on top. His hair is slicked back and his eyes are glowing bright yellow. Covering his nose and mouth is some sort of leather mask.
Raven strides past the line of security but does not acknowledge them as he comes face to face with the steel cage door. He stops as a ring official opens the door. Raven pauses in between Foley and Jarrett. Raven still looking at the cage he outstretches his palm to Foley.
Foley begrudgingly and slowly drops the cage door’s lock into Raven’s hand. Raven then continues, never taking his eyes off the Hitman who stand dead centre in the middle of the ring. The door closes behind the two men, and the Hardcore Legend curses as he snaps the padlock shut.
The two men stand only feet from each other. There is a long silence before Raven finally rips off his face mask and drops it to the mat. He pulls a mic from inside his white suit jacket and as he continues to stare at Hart an evil smile appears on his face showing his yellow teeth.
Hart: Raven I have toed the line to get you here so I can talk to you face to face. You have us both locked in here so no one can grab you. I want to appeal to you right here right now to stop what you are doing. I’ve given up wondering about the why, I’m just more interested in stopping your actions before someone gets killed. A wrestler. A fan. I’m am here and now in this ring going to find a way to make you stop. Is there something that you want? What will make you stop these terrorist acts?
Raven: You know this is actually very funny to me. You see I dreamed of this moment. The almighty Excellence of Execution inside a steel cage with me. How fitting your moniker has the word execution in it where we are standing right now.
You see Hart, the funny thing is I never thought I would get here so quickly. I guess I even surprise myself. This moment was meant to happen AFTER I slayed the dark archangel. The Icon Sting, TNA’s long standing, self appointed Sheriff. I was meant to have you all to myself then because I really never thought he would let it get this far. I never thought Sting would let me do the things that I have done. I was to rip Sting’s beating heart from his chest before I even had a chance to have you all to myself Commander and Chief.
In essence you, him, all the boys in the back, you are all responsible for my actions. I remember you Hitman saying you wanted to make TNA the top pro-wrestling company in the world. Haven’t I done that for you. Thanks to me and my so called terrorist acts, Impact is the highest rating sports entertainment slash Pro-wrestling show on the planet. TNA is number one, just like you wanted.
Hart: I didn’t want it this way.
Raven: Oh but that’s what you have. So all I have done is on your head. All I have done is what you wanted and what he wanted. But of course there is more to the story. It’s about a Legacy, it’s about belts made of Gold and it’s about fear. It’s about controlling the pro-wrestling world, as everyone right now sits on the edge of their seats listening to everything I have to say.
Hart: No Raven, this has to stop. You want a legacy, you want to be a Champion, then you have to earn it like everyone else. One of your gifts to scare people, use mind games to get wins inside the ring, then use them. But this is not the way. It stops and it stops right now.
Raven: Wrong. Right now on live television I will complete my masterpiece, because Sting is too much of a coward to stop me. I will excellently execute you right here right now. I will drive a stake through the “Hart’ and soul of TNA. You are trapped in this cage with me, Quote the Raven..
Hart: You see Raven, you may have the key to the cage door, but I’m still at my core a wrestler. You talk about me being trapped in a cage….. well I was born and raised in a dungeon. I’m not locked in here with you ….YOU’RE locked in here with ME!!!
Hart lunges at Raven punching him in the face. The Hitman strikes Raven’s gut with a knee and then pulls Raven’s white jacket over his head and starts beating down the maniacal one with stiff right hands. Raven is able to slither out of his jacket but Hart comes again as the crowd goes crazy with cheers! Foley and Jarrett chant Bret’s name as they get behind their leader who starts to use the cage as a weapon. Raven tries to escape but the Hitman has set Raven up for a sharpshooter. The crowd goes berserk as hart sets into the move but raven is able to claw and grab his cane. He bludgeons Hart across the bridge of the nose. Hart staggers backwards. Raven comes again and bashes Hart to the side of the head. The Hitman goes down as Foley and Jarrett try to rip into the cage door. Foley tries to climb the cage but Raven shoves the cane through the cage wall and sends the big man hurtling to the floor!. Jarrett rushes to his aid as Ravens mounts Hart trapping his arms with his shins. Raven raises the cane above his head as security still try to break in. Raven pulls the silver skull away from the cane to reveal a very sharp rail road spike!!!
Raven grabs Hart by the collar of his leather jacket and raises the spike above his head positioning it to drive right into the TNA leader. Raven’s wide blazing yellow eyes look down at his prey and before he strikes wickedly smiles.
But from the rafters the Icon emerges! He tackles Raven knocking the spike from his hand. Sting though has to disengage himself from the harness he uses, and Raven hits a discuss lariat! Sting still hung up by the harness, is almost defenceless as Raven puts in shot after shot to Sting. From the back the World Champion races down and quickly climbs the cage! He then in one huge move leaps from the top of the cage and hits a cross body splash from 12 feet in the air! He hits Raven with such force that he rolls to a corner. Styles slowly gets to his feet. He untangles Sting and goes to help Hart. Sting gives Styles a look as he goes after Raven on his own.
Sting lands lefts and rights and rips the key off Raven’s neck and throws it to AJ. AJ unlocks the door and Hart puts his weight on the Champion as Sting and Raven are locked in combat.
Sting hits a Stinger Splash! He hits another one! And calls to the crowd for a third. But in that time Raven has recovered the steel spike. He uses to escape the cage and walk up the ramp backwards. Sting follows him but he uses the edged weapon to keep them all at bay. Sting turns and grabs a mic off Foley…\
Sting: It is Kingdom Come for you Raven. At the pay per view it will be you and me to finish this once and for all. It’s Showtime Folks!<END>

Impact opens with haunting music and a video package of last week’s events. Raven and Hart meeting face to face in the cage. The six sides of steel surrounded by security as the two men are locked inside face to face finally since the Raven Saga started. Raven attacks Hart, has him down and in slow motion pulls the railroad spike from his cane. Suddenly the music changes as Sting descends from the rafters to save the Hitman’s life! But Raven has Sting tangled in his own harness, as the World Champion flies out, scrambles up the side of the cage and leaps off the top to hit Raven and make the save! He drags Hart out of the six sides as Sting and Raven battle until Raven recovers the spike and uses it to escape……
Pyro goes off in the Impact Zone as Mike Tenay and Don West welcome everyone to the highest rating Pro wrestling show on television today TNA Impact!
The Hitman’s music cranks out as Bret Hart walks out with mic in hand to address the fans. He gets into the centre of the ring poses to the crowd and takes off his glasses.
Hart: This Sunday at the TNA super show Kingdom Come we are going to see the greatest wrestling on the planet. We are going to see the two best in the world AJ Styles and Hiroshi Tanahashi face off for the World Heavyweight title. We are going to see a wrestling classic in Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels. We are going to see The X title being defended by the Pope against Jay Lethal. The Machine Guns, yeah I’m big fans of the Champs.. the Machine Guns will be in a 4 way dance defending the titles against The British Invasion, NEO-1-GT and L.A.X. But the biggest match the one I can’t wait for will be the match that sees the Stinger knock Raven’s teeth down his throat! That’s right at Kingdom Come it will be Sting vs. Raven!!!
Hart is then interrupted by Kurt Angle’s music. Angle walks down. He is in street clothes and he has a mic.
Angle: Maybe I’m going deaf Hitman, but I didn’t hear you announce the match Kurt Angle vs. Petey Williams. In fact, no contract for a match has been emailed to me or faxed to me over the last week. So I’m going to assume, this is just another stupid oversight by you as you are pretty damn hopeless in your managerial role since you’ve got here.
So Bret, make the match.
Hart: Kurt, Williams is officially suspended and you are not cleared to wrestle by the doctors. I’m sorry but I will not have anyone die or get paralysed in my ring. That’s why I haven’t signed the match Kurt. Look heal up, get plenty of rest, see your kids…
Angle: NO!! YOU LOOK!!! You will give me this damn match or I’ll snap your ankle right here!!! You understand me. Make the match Hart. Make the match now!! Don’t you dare patronise me. I want Williams in this ring on Sunday night.
Hart: Listen to yourself Kurt, do you have a death wish? Do you really want to do this?
Angle: You make the match right now or I’ll break every bone in your body…
Bang Bang! Mick Foley’s music plays and out walks the Executive Shareholder and Hardcore legend.
Foley: Bret, I know you don’t want the bad press or the possibility of getting sued by Kurt’s family or any of that, but Petey Williams tried to paralyse the man. He is due his pound of flesh.
Hart: No Mick. I will not have Kurt’s blood on my hands.
Foley: There is a way Bret. An unsanctioned match. On the ppv we have an unsanctioned match, Kurt Angle vs. Petey Williams. No one can get sued there is no one to blame but Kurt, if he signes the waiver paperwork.
Hart: And what about Kurt, Mick, what if he doesn’t walk again after this match huh? It’s not about being sued it’s a bout a man’s health.
Angle: You self righteous son of a bitch. I’m standing right here. How dare you make decisions for me. You will put Petey Williams in the ring and I’ll sign anything just make the match.
Hart: You want the match? You really want this? Fine. You’ve got your match. At Kingdom Come it will be you Kurt Angle vs. Petey Williams. This is on your head Mick. Damn you and damn you Angle…
Bret drops the mic and walks up the ramp. He is upset with Foley and Angle.
Angle: Williams I’m going to break you in two this Sunday at Kingdom Come!!!

Wolfe walks out and grabs a mic.
Wolfe: Mr. Morgan, how many times do I haff ta beat ya? Ya see I made ya tap, I’ve pinned ya shoulders and last week I beat ya with my brains. So tonight Mr. Bret Hart has given you one more chance ta try and get me. Well sunshine not today, not tomorra because right now, I’m gonna end ya.
Finish: Morgan has dominated the match. He has come out guns a blazing. He suplexes Wolfe down and sets for the carbon footprint. Wolfe sees it and ducks, but Morgan quickly spins and hits a clothesline. Wolfe is thrown onto the ropes and Morgan leaps his 7 foot fram over it with his leg crashing down on the back of Wolfe’s throat. Morgan lands on his feet on the outside high fives a fan and gets back into the ring. Wolfe is holding his throat as Morgan leans in for a side slam, but Wolfe playing a little possum, hits a European uppercut surprising Morgan. Morgan shakes it off and comes again crushing Wolfe in the corner.

He grabs Wolfe again, but Wolfe quickly puts Morgan into a small package for the pin 1….2…. Wolfe before the ref can see puts his feet on the ropes for more leverage …3!
Winner via pinfall Desmond Wolfe at 6:30
Wolfe gets his hand raised. He laughs at Morgan and quickly rolls out of the ring, as Morgan takes a big swing at him. Wolfe gets So Cal Val to get his jacket and glasses. Morgan appeals to the ref about Wolfe cheating and using the ropes. The ref says he didn’t see it the result stands. Morgan is livid he kicks the rope he slams the mat. He appeals to the ref again, but the ref gives the same answer.
Morgan can’t take it any more and hits the ref with the Carbon footprint!! Morgan grabs the limp body of the 150 pound ref and hoists him in the air. Refs and security fly out to stop but Morgan hits the Hellavator! The refs and security are then hit with big boots and clothelines as the huge 7 foot man, starts throwing people, all over the place. He gorilla presses a security member to the floor and starts punching everyone in sight. They all start getting out of his way. As he roars picks up the steel steps and throws them in the direction of the commentary team. Morgan walks off.
Tenay: I can understand why The Blueprint would be upset, that is the third match he has had with Desmond Wolfe and the third defeat.
West: But there is no excuse for attacking officials and security Mike, he his going to get fined or even suspended for his actions. Bret hart is going with a zero tolerance right now due to the actions of Williams and Raven. Morgan will have a lot to answer for.
Tenay: Well tonight leading into the Kingdom Come ppv we have some great matches for everyone tonight.
In the main event you will see Hiroshi Tanahashi teaming with Christopher Daniels and the Monster Abyss taking on Samoa Joe, Rob Van Dam and the World Champion AJ Styles.
West: Wow that is going to be amazing Mike. And I think we’ve got JB standing by with Rob Van Dam.
JB: Thanks guys, hi Rob how do you feel after going through the stage area after fighting with Abyss.
RVD: Dude I feel great because not only this morning was a match signed between me and Abyss for Kingdom Come but right here tonight I get to kick not only Abyss’ butt but also Chris Daniels the guy that sent me over the edge last week.
<A replay is shown of RVD saving Samoa Joe from Abyss but then Christopher Daneils, sending RVD and Abyss crashing down into tables and electrical equipment.>
Into the interview walks Samoa Joe
Joe: Listen up Rob, I didn’t ask for your help last week. Tonight I get my revenge on Abyss, and then on Sunday I move on and beat the hell out of Daniels to move closer to what should already be mine, a shot at the World title. Don’t get in my way tonight. Abyss is mine. You better understand it because if you don’t Joe’s gonna kill you.
The Beautiful People, Velvet Sky and Angelina Love vs. Gail Kim and Sarita
Finish: Velvet tags in Love and she goes to work on Sarita’s injured back. The replay shows Sarita going for a Hurricanrana on the ring apron earlier in the match only for Angelina to hold onto the ropes and the International star flies off and lands back first on the steel steps!
Back from the replay Love has tagged Velvet back in as they continue to do quick tags, keeping Gail out of the match and focusing on Sarita. Velvet goes for a clotheline but Sarita is bale to hit one of her own and both girls go down. Gail slaps the top turnbuckle to get ther partner to give her the tag.
Sarita reaches out as does Gail and finally the tag is made. Gail is like a house of fire as she takes it to both members of the Beautiful People with clotheslines and drop kicks. She calls out to the fans to give her some energy as she goes again after Angelina. The two fight and dive through the ropes. Gail and takes Valvet out and Sarita quickly tags in and goes for a cross body off the top, but misses due to her sore back. Velvet drops a leg drop makes the cover.1.2.3

Hemme: I’m here with the Pope to get his comments on his title defence this Sunday at Kingdom Come
Dinero: Little Miss Hemme, Pope is ready to dance with Jay-Jay Lee-thal this Sunday. We all know every Sunday is Pope’s day. So at Kingdom Come, the double D Express pulls into the station and the most exciting Champion of the most exciting Division is going to lay down some pimp slappin’ good times on Jay Jay’s behind. Ya feel Pope, because if you don’t, you haven’t got a pulse. Because Pope is pimpin’.
Tenay: An anticlimactic win to Speed Muscle for what was a great contest up until Raven had decided to give his final words leading into what will no doubt be a war between these two men.Match # 3
Generation Me vs. Speed Muscle
Finish: Yoshino is unbelievably fast but Gen Me have been able to keep up with him as they are able to use double teams to slow him down. But an explosive clothesline from Doi knocks Max out of the ring as Jeremy flips through the middle rope into a body press to take out the “Muscle” of the team. Yoshino quickly gets to his feet and the Speedstar sprints from rope to rope and collides heavily with Jeremy and all four men are down…
Suddenly the TNA-Tron comes alive and it looks like some amateurish video recording, which ends up being an extreme close up of Raven’s face. Raven has some how broken into the Impact Zone’s feed.
Raven: This Sunday thy Kingdom Come will be done on you Icon. I know you’re listening. You’re probably up in those rafters right now. Watching, waiting, praying. You see I told you it will start with you. But it will only end once TNA is nothing but ash. Hart wanted ratings, well he’s got them, unfortunately Kingdom Come will be the finale for you Icon.
Right now you know that Kingdom Come will be your last moment. The hour to which you do not look forward will come as a welcome surprise. As for me when you want mercy, you will find me, in a fine state of euphoria. To end your career will be like sweet fruit Icon. Sunday I will burn you to the ground. Quote the Raven. Nevermore.
The referee is unsure of what just happened and Yoshino takes advantage rolling Jeremy up from behind. The ref is not sure about who the legal man is and counts.1.2.3.
Winners via pinfall Speed Muscle at 7:02
<Video showing Petey Williams’ return to TNA and what damage he has caused, and then last week’s return of Kurt Angle who shocked everyone and especially Petey after attacking him and challenging him to a match at the ppv. >
Tenay and West replay the opening segment of how Angle demanded the match, Hart refused and Foley stepped in. Then Hart books the match but walks off very disappointed in both men.
Konnan: Hey Hardy, you want to protect yourself, hey, we can respect that dawg. Good for you. However, Machine Guns, you wont be so lucky. At Kingdom Come we are going to bulldoze the Brits, Londrick and then take back the World tag belts. You see, we took out the World Elite, on Sunday we take the World tag titles. Odela, Odela, ariba la raza!!Match #4
Global Championship Match
Champion Hernandez vs. Jeff Hardy
<Replay of Wolfe attacking Hardy and setting the scene that if Hardy wins the Global title tonight, Wolfe will get the first shot>
The Champ, is led out by Konnan and Homicide his LAX stablemates. As always they come from the border entrance and look like they are mad dogs ready to attack anyone who steps in their yard. But to a huge ovation comes out the Charsmatic Enigma
Finish: Hernandez’s strength is second to none and he has thrown Hardy around like a rag doll. Hardy went for a Whisper in the Wind off the top rope only to be hit with a huge shoulder tackle sending the spinning Hardy flying through the air and almost crashing neck first into the turnbuckles. Hardy is pulled up by his hair and Hernandez hits an very long delayed vertical suplex.
Konnan tells Dez to finish him. Hernandez grabs him but Hardy blocks the punches and delivers a few of his own. Hernandez seems rocked as Hardy hits the ropes and delivers a spinning clotheline, as the momentum seems to have shifted!
Dez gets to his feet only to be hit by a drop kick and is sent flying backwards into the turnbuckle and falls to his backside. Hardy runs in grabbing the ropes and delivers the Hardyac Arrest. He calls out to the fans and rips off his shirt as he sets for the end. Konnan calls out to warn the big man but he is dazed and walks right into a Twist of Fate! Hardy climbs the ropes to deliver the Swanton Bomb.
But Homicide springs to action and hits a super-Gringo Cutta off the top rope! The ref calls for the bell.
Winner by disqualification Jeff Hardy, but still Global Champion Hernandez at 9:21.
Hardy rolls out of the ring and falls to the floor. Konnan and Cide check on Dez, before looking for Hardy. Hardy crawls to the commentary position and folds a steel chair. LAX come down but Hardy swings the chair. LAX back off and Konnan grabs a mic.
But out walk the Champs, Shelley and Sabin. They stand on the top of the ramp looking down at Hardy’s would be attackers.
Shelley: You are an angry man Konnan. What’s wrong buddy, someone steal your taco platter?
Konnan: We’ll rip you apart you punk kids, do you realise who Homicide is, do you realise who Hernandez is. They aren’t some spoilt little rich kids playing computer games. They hurt people, and you’ll learn that this Sunday children. The fact that you are the title holders sickens me. We are going to make you bleed.
Sabin: What we just saw was you couldn’t handle Jeff Hardy so you cheated to keep your belt. At least we know the game you guys play. And we definitely know how to play games. Don’t we champ.
Shelley: Indeed we do champ. See you boys on Sunday.
Tenay: It looks like the Tag team titles match is going to turn violent Don.
West: All I can say is Kingdom Come is going to be amazing Mike, the card is off the charts.

JB: Thanks guys, at this time I have with me the Champion of the World AJ Styles. Thanks for your time AJ, how are you feeling going into this match tonight and your title defence this Sunday, after everything that has been going on around here.
Styles: Well JB, I’d be lying if I said I have been 100% focused on Sunday, but tonight I’ll be standing across the ring from Tanahashi and I will get a preview of what to expect this Sunday. Besides, the Stinger is going to clean Raven’s clock, and I’ll be ready and relaxed after seeing that to defend the World title.
JB: What if Raven beats Sting or worse, how will that effect you?
Styles looks at JB as if to think that was never a possibility… the Champion walks off distressed…
AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Rob Van Dam vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Abyss and Christopher Daniels
Abyss w/ Mitchell walks out first and then Christopher Daniels. Daniels grabs a mic before Tanahashi is introduced.
Daniels: Mitchell, Abyss better toe the line because if he doesn’t I will take him out and then take you out. We are here to take care of Joe, with the added bonus of beating up RVD who seems to be able to get title shots before anyone else around here, and of course my old friend the World Champ, AJ. So don’t give the retard any ideas about stabbing me in the back. We work together tonight we can cause some real damage…
Finish: What a match so far!!! Joe and Tanahshi have been ripping into each other as Styles and Daniels have been battling above the ring. Abyss and RVD have since been on the floor and exchanged shots with chairs and chains!!!
Daniels hits an STO on Styles and then delivers a knee strike to the top of the Champs head! He taunts the crowd as he tags in Tanahashi who swaggers over to Styles and slowly and smugly picks his spots and hits palm strikes and a spinning heel kick to his gut. The Ace of the Universe comes off the ropes and delivers a bulldog.

Daniels laughs as they double team Joe and throw him over the ropes leaving Styles all alone. Daniels and Tanahashi deliver a double elbow to the Champion’s spine and then Daniels directs traffic. They both go up and Daniels hits the best moonsault ever and then Hiroshi the High Fly Flow! Styles is hurt. Joe comes back into the ring, but Daniels tells Tanahashi to stop him. Tanahshi cuts Joe off and hits an elbow strike sending Joe back out to the floor, but in doing so Daniels has made the cover on Styles.
Winners via pinfall Abyss, Tanahashi and Christopher Daniels at 20.15
Tanahashi is not impressed Daniels stole the pinfall over the Champion. Daniels puts his hands up and allows Hiroshi full access to the hurt AJ Styles. Daniels slithers out of the ring very happy with himself as he poses to the crowd, Tanahashi climbs the turnbuckle and hits another High Fly Flow!
Suddenly out runs Team 3D, they jump into the ring and Tanahashi stands between them and the Champion. Tanahashi smiles and rolls out of the ring, as Brother ray pushes Devon and demands “Get the Tables!!!!”
Devon looks under the ring as Brother Ray stands on AJ’s face. Devon slides a table in but it’s Sting’s music that lights up the Impact Zone! Sting walks out of the entrance tunnel, a bright light shining behind him as he spins his black bat in his hand.
Ray and Devon grab chairs and go after Sting but the Stinger is too quick. He takes them out, with bat shots. He drops Ray with a Scorpion Deathdrop, he kicks Devon in the crotch and locks in the Scorpion Deathlock. Devon he taps for his life as Sting picks both men up and tosses them over the top rope.

West: That truly is the mark of a Champion, he wants to make sure Sting stops Raven’s terror tonight.
Hemme: I think we all can’t wait for those two matches but you know I think the tag team title match may steal the show.

Tenay: Guys I think you’ve forgotten one. What is going to happen when Kurt Angle steps into an unsanctioned match with Petey Williams, the man who tried to not only end his career but cripple the Olympic gold medallist.

Let’s give it over now to the ring announcer as Kingdom Come begins now!!!
To the ring walks Bret “The Hitman” Hart
Hart: When I first came to TNA I had a plan to make TNA the best pro-wrestling company in the world. I had a 12 month plan to do so. I never thought in two months we would achieve such heights. But then again I never thought a car would come exploding into the Impact Zone through the big screen or that Raven would try to kill me with a railroad spike. Well tonight Kingdom Comes for everyone. Enjoy the night everyone.
But out walks Stevie Richards and Daffney to no music.
Dr. Stevie: Hart, I have a message for you from Raven. Tonight Kingdom Comes for TNA. Sting will fall and so will all of you.

Jeff Hardy is standing by with Christy Hemme
Hardy: You know Christy I was here in TNA before. I was in the first Monsters Ball match. I’ve leaped off the top of the stage and crashed down on my opponents and I took it to the likes of the Kevin Nash’s and Jeff Jarrett’s. But this is a new day, this is anew time and a new Jeff Hardy. You see now I have been a World Champion.
I have been to the top of the mountain, and I liked it. So Desmond Wolfe, you are about to find out what happens when you take on someone who has been to the top of the mountain and is not afraid to jump off the summit and crash down on top of you.

Winner via pinfall at 18:25 The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels
Daniels is hurt and Tenay and West believe it was his hate that drove him to win that match, as Daniels was tortured by Joe for the entire first half of the match for his comments. During the replay West says that Daniels is one of the best in the world and Joe should never had stop his own cover and won the match as Daniels made him pay for it.
Tenay says that in the rankings Daniels would be near the top after this win especially after pinning the World Champion last Thursday in the main event six man match.
The Fallen Angel is helped by the match referee to the back, as Joe is just coming to from the finishing move.
Williams: Kurt Angle, haven’t you had enough? This time Angle you wont get that tingle back in your fingers. This time you wont walk again. This time you wont be able to hold your children. You have signed away everything just so you could wrestle me in an unsanctioned match. This match doesn’t even count towards rankings or getting you any closer to a title shot. What it does do is allow me to hurt you Angle, it allows me to do anything I want to you.
I’m going to paralyse you Angle and there is nothing the law can do about it. There is nothing Bret Hart or Mick Foley or even you can do about it. You should have listen to your wife because tonight I become the man who ends your career.

But before Tenay can say anything else Raven’s music plays. To the ring wearing his white suit walks the maniacal Raven. He stares down Tenay and rips the mic out of his hand.
Raven: Get behind your desk and do your job. You will bear witness; you will record what will transpire here tonight. (Tenay leaves the ring frightened)
No one can stop me now. Not a Hardcore Legend, not a King of the Mountain, not a Hitman and especially not an Icon. I am an agent of chaos and chaos has told me that tonight I am running things, and I’m going to bring anarchy with me.
But Raven is interrupted by the Olympic Gold medallist’s music. Kurt Angle walks out but he is not alone. He is followed by Rob Van Dam and Samoa Joe.
Angle: Raven do you really think that you can just walk in here tonight and take over. The Hitman let you run free. I won’t.
Raven: <sigh>Kurt Angle. Chaos knew you would be a major problem, and I told him that he was foolish to leave Petey Williams in charge of taking you out. You are far too dangerous to be left unchecked.
Angle: Well why don’t the three of us come down there and do what Hart couldn’t.
Raven: You are arrogant Angle, that is why Petey Williams was able to almost paralyse you. You can’t get past your own ego. But like I said I’m in control tonight and I have security to protect me.
Angle, Joe and Rob look around don’t see anything. Angle shrugs his shoulders and drops the mic. All three men storm the ring. Raven jumps out of the ring but is surrounded quickly. But out comes a sea of red shirts. It’s Raven’s Insecurity team! Angle Joe and RVD are attacked but they are no match for these three men even with overwhelming odds.

Raven: I’m in charge! And tonight I have matches for everyone. Tonight TNA will see the Raven effect, the agent of Chaos!

West: If AJ was here he probably would be in a title match too Mike. Raven is out of control and he is putting the TNA roster in matches so they can’t stop him.
JB is backstage and is trying to get an interview with Raven who seems to have taken over Bret Hart’s office. But standing out front of the door is Giant Bernard and Tomko. They looked down on JB and he sends it back to the Impact Zone as he knows he won’t be getting to Raven.
Christy Hemme is with Desmond Wolfe
Wolfe: I heard what Mr Daniels said earlier tonight. And I would haf to agree wif him. But you see I also think I should be getting a title shot. I embarrassed Kurt Angle for months. I have made Matt Morgan a 7 foot giant a laughing stock, and at Kingdom Come I took Jeff Hardy's head.
So yeah, I think I deserve a title shot too. So AJ Styles I hope you are resting up fella because very soon, you'll be seeing the Wolfe. It's that easy.

Backstage Christy Hemme is with Kurt Angle
Christy: I am here with Kurt Angle and not only do you have to face a mystery opponent tonight Kurt, but it seems like Raven was behind Petey Williams attacking you and trying to put you out of the business all along!
Angle: Raven thinks he can try and take me out tonight. He’s dead wrong. Petey Williams couldn’t get the job done and tried to break my neck. Well he didn’t get the job done, and so when I’m finished with your mystery opponent Raven, I’m coming for you. Because I am better than the so called best, Bret Hart. And unlike him, I’ll take you out. It’s real, it’s ......real.

Well Petey looks like you went through hell with Kurt Angle to get a title shot at Pope. Well Pope thinks Petey you are going to have a long night because Pope is going to crank that ankle that Angle rip to pieces on Sunday and make you think twice about ever trying to step in on Pope’s congregation. Pope has spoken.
But from out the back runs Kurt Angle. He attacks Williams sending him crashing to the floor. Lethal hits Angle from behind with a double sledge. Angle is whipped into the ropes but comes off them he hits a devastating clothesline Angle grabs Lethal and hits an Olympic slam with such force that Jay bounces off the mat and flies out of the ring to the floor!

Williams snatches the X Title from the ref to become a three time Champion. Barely able to support his weight he holds the belt high as Pope has been knocked out. Lethal like a vulture walks into the ring and start laying the boots into the unconscious Dinero. Petey looks over his shoulder to see Lethal attacking Pope and he laughs, dropping the belt and getting in a couple of kicks himself.
Samoa Joe grabs a micMatch #5
Kurt Angle vs. Senshi
The Warrior’s primal screams accentuate the vicious kicks he strikes Angle with. Angle is holding his head and then chest as these strikes rain down on the Olympic gold medallist.
Finish: Angle has clawed his way back into the match by catching Senshi and hitting an overhead belly to belly release suplex. It gave him time to shake out the cobwebs and slow the pace down. Senshi brings to chops down onto Angle’s shoulders and then tires for a suplex of his own, but Angle’s strength is able to reverse it and sends Senshi up in the air. But Senshi escapes it lands on his feet and delivers a kick to Angle’s spine!
Angle is hurting as the Warrior kicks Angle in the sternum with both feet sending him flying into the corner. Angle is hurting and it is still obvious that the Canadian Destroyer from weeks ago is still causing him excruciating pain. Senshi flips his body and hits back elbow and then picks up Kurt and delivers a Ki-Rush (fireman’s carry slam into the turnbuckles).
Senshi looks down at the damage and then slowly climbs the turnbuckles. But Angle, like a cat pops up and ascends the turnbuckles and catching Senshi delivers an off the top turnbuckle belly to belly suplex!!! Senshi is thrown the entire length of the ring and crashes in a heap! Angle drags him into the middle of the ring and is about to lock in the ankle lock when Williams returns and hits Angle in the face with the X title.
Winner via disqualification Kurt Angle at 7:13
Although he is limping Williams sets Angle up for another Canadian Destroyer. But Samoa Joe’s music hits and he runs out to make the save. Williams in his condition wants nothing to do with the 300 pound wrecking ball.
Joe: Raven, or whoever is pulling your strings, wants to try and take us all out! You’ve messed with the wrong guy. You want to throw Abyss at me. I’ve defeated the monster and I’ll do it again. I’ve been waiting for another chance to take him out. So if you think big bad Abyss is going to take me out, think again, because I’m what Monster’s have nightmares about. Abyss get out here because Joe’s gonna kill you.
Raven though walks out with Tomko and Giant Bernard. Joe is able to hit Tomko but Bernard hits another big bicycle kick. Joe crashes into guard rail. Tenay and West are calling the action when they announce that JB has just told them over the eye piece that the cavalry has just arrived and are running to the ring.Main Event
Samoa Joe vs. Abyss
Kurt although injured is staying at ringside watching Joe’s back.
Finish: Joe has gone into berserker rage mode and is beating down Abyss in the corner with vicious continuous left hand strikes. He runs the ropes and delivers a huge face wash! The monster as big as he is tries to escape to the floor but Joe corkscrews over the top rope and drives Abyss’ head into the concrete.
The monster tries to get to his feet but Joe grabs a chair. The ref tries to stop him, but he grabs the ref by his collar and flings him away. He smashes Abyss’ skull with the chair and the ref calls for the bell. Joe is not concerned.
Winner by disqualification The Monster Abyss at 6:54
The Hitman’s music sounds and out runs Jarrett, Foley and Hart. They each have their weapon of choice, and go after Raven. Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner leads out Senshi, Team 3D and LAX. They go after Joe and an injured Angle. With weapons in hand they hold their own but are started to be overwhelmed.
But Sting’s music hits and out comes the Icon leading out the Tag Champions Sabin and Shelley and in street clothes the World Champion AJ Styles. A huge brawl breaks out in the impact zone!
Raven can’t believe that he has lost control. He waves down the Insecurity team but they are taken out by Sting’s baseball bat, Hart’s steel chair, Foley’s barbed wired bat. Foley goes after Raven but he is hit with the silver skull cane on the top of the ramp and rolls down.
In all the confusion one of the Insecurity team hits Styles and then delivers Angels wings!! He takes his cap off to reveal the Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels who stands over his former best friend.
Sting sees this and goes after Daniels but he salutes the Icon and runs off leaving Sting to take out Team 3D with his bat. Sting stands tall as he, Hart, Jarrett, Joe and Angle have taken back TNA from Raven. Jarrett checks on Foley and the World Champion while Raven and his “Flock” retreat up the ramp and back into the tunnel like rats. The Icon checks on Styles as Hart walks up to him. The Hitman and Sting shake hands in the middle of the 6 sides as they have won back TNA Wrestling... for now.<END>
Aright, I've got a sobbing migraine and I've been putting off my work all night so I'll not go way indepth but I'll still review it and be as helpful as possible.
You've got quite a lot of shows done in a short number of time which is a good achievement but you need to be careful not to burn yourself out. Sometimes its better to be patient and wait a little, that way you don't lose desire quick and you give your brain more time to think of ideas.
The recap at the start of the show’s always helpful. I’ve never read this fed before so it helped me a little.
Raven’s character was fantastic. The opening exchange with Angle was a joy to read, you depicted both characters extremely well and that opening got me pumped for the rest of the show. Great work.
I’m a big fan of the Gun’s so it’s refreshing to see that they are holding the belts. Team 3D’s words at the start of the match left a little to be desired and I’d have liked to have seen MCMG say something. Also, I think you’d be much better summarising the match in whole rather than just recapping the end sequence. The end sequence itself was fine.
Daniel’s promo was very short but what he had to say was interesting and yet again, his character was well depicted. A Daniels/AJ feud is always fun.
I skipped the women’s stuff for the most part as it bores me. A few people enjoy it though so I’d stick at it.
Wolfe’s promo was good but there was no need to have ‘have’ as ‘haf’. Perhaps mention his cockney accent but just write it in Standard English. Keep using ‘fella’ and terms like that as that is spot on for his character.
I like that you have Hardy and RVD teaming up but I’m not a fan of them losing to LAX, I think Hardy and RVD should be way up the card. Additionally I wasn’t a fan of the match. It was a little basic and could have been way better. I’d advise checking out some other fics to gain an understanding of match summaries. Also the opening post of Fed Thread will help you out. Back to the match, I felt the table spot was a little overkill.
The Angle interview was good. Short but good.
The Beer Money/Harris confrontation was way too short for me to give a shit about it.
I’m a fan of giving Williams the X-Division Belt. I’d personally push Dinero to main event status but that’s just me. I like the push you’re giving Williams in your fiction, I have to say.
You need to use Angle a little less I think. Is that the 4th segment he’s been in tonight, with his match up next being the 5th. I know he’s the centrepiece of the show but still.
This was probably your match of the night, well finish of the night. Senshi and Angle is a dream match of mine so it was nice to see them at it here. Joe makes the save and we have yet another match.
Six matches in a two hour show plus a lot of segments isn’t realistic so you might want to look at that.
For the Main Event, you could have put much more effort into it. It was a little lazy I felt.
The end segment following the main event saved the show for me. I’m loving the Raven’s guys versus Angle thing you’ve got on.
Overall it was hit and miss. More miss then hit. You’ve got some good storylines going on, you just need to improve your match writing and lengthen your promos then you’re on to something good. I love Raven and the huge angle he’s involved in so you’ve got me as a reader thanks to that. So remember to take in the words I’ve said. You remind me a little of Knox who started out with great matches but his storylines and whatnot were executed as well as a wet fart – you’re the opposite of that. If you fix your match writing you could win Rookie of the Year I feel.
Thank you so much for your review WMS. Great to hear what you thought. I wish I wasn't so quick on the draw so you could have reviewed the ppv, but I just have so much planned out and I try to keep my fed rolling much like TNA, I want to produce an episode a week.Originally Posted by WMS
Due to the ending of the ppv, many of my top stars were put on the shelf for most of the show, because I wanted the big ending to really add a big ending. So therefore Joe and Angle needed to step up to fill Styles, Sting, Hart etc. absence.
In every show I have always had the MCMGs crack wise and always get mic time but in this episode I felt it was better that the fact they had to defend their titles out of nowhere against the most decorated tag team in the world made them shut their mouths for once..I wrote it that way to add to their characters.. maybe I should have put that into commentary to get that across.
Don't worry about Pope I have big plans for him. I wanted him to get the X belt early to show what he can do, and then move him inot bigger and better things.
I kept alot of the promos short due to there being 6 matches on the show and the big brawl at the start and the even bigger one at the end... Maybe in "reality" Spike TV let the show run over its timeslot by 3 or 4 minutes
Just on that point, at the ppv I promised a a Beer Money vs Harris and partner match on Impact but because of the Raven storyline I had to cut it. I did a quick promo to explain why to the fans who may have been expecting it.
As for Hardy and RVD losing to LAX... I have always been a massive hater of how two single stars could possibly defeat an established tag team, especially a tag team who have been former Champions. I'm setting up LAX for big things right now and giving them a victory over these two guys allowed me to push them even further up that ladder. Also I wanted RVD and Hardy out so when the cavalry arrived later in the inght it meant more because Angle and Joe's back up ghad already been taken out.
If people are following the fed from the first show, they may see a few clues that I am placing in the fed about who Chaos is. They are very subtle but you can actually guess who is the mastermind behind Raven's attacks. I've also thrown a few red herrings in there too...
I will def. look into a summary type style to writing the matches. I write the finish especially for the Impacts because tv matches are always a bit shorter and the in ring story is usually told at the end. bUT i WILL WORK ON THEM.
I would be really interested in what you thought of the ppv matches compared to my impact matches and if they are the same or more detailed and better etc.
Thanks again for the review, I hope this post kind of expalins why I wrote the way I did for this particular episode. Would love for you to follow it from day one.
Many thanks and cheers!
For anyone else I would love a review of any of my shows, every review or even small comment helps me put together better stuff.
Video of last week's Impact. Raven Saga continiued as the maniacal terroist was in control with his INsecurity team and ordered matches against those who fought against him.
Slow motion replays of Angle being kicked by Senshi. Hardy and RVD being put through tables, and Petey Williams winning the X title from Pope.
Raven and the debuting Tomko and Giant Bernard beating down Angle and Joe.
But Hart, Sting, Foley, Jarrett and AJ Styles all returned to fught the good fight. Daniels hits Styles with Angels Wings disguised as an INsecurity Guard.
But Sting and Hart and the others take back TNA as Raven retreats!
The Hitman’s music sounds throughout the Impact Zone and out walks a happy Bret Hart. He takes the mic as replays of Hart leading the charge to take back TNA from Raven last week.
Hart: Welcome everyone to TNA Impact! The highest rating and best pro wrestling show on the planet. Last week, while watching the show I realised that it didn’t matter how beat up I was I had to come down to the Impact Zone and take back TNA. So Sting, Jarrett, Mick and the World Champion all joined me and we took back what doesn’t belong to you Raven. It belongs to the fans. Jeff Jarrett and his father’s creation would not fall to you Raven and I have been put in charge by Dixie Carter to ensure that happens. Tonight I am going to finish Raven once and for all tonight the Stinger wants Raven one on one and...
Bret Hart is interrupted by Kurt Angle’s music. From the tunnel dressed in his suit walks Angle. He looks out at the fans before looking at Hart and shakes his head. Walking down to the ring he accepts a mic from So Cal Val and once again like he has many times before since the start of 2010, goes face to face with Bret Hart.
Angle: At first I thought you were all hype. “The best” .... but then I thought as TNA came crashing down around your ears I thought you were incompetent. When I ran the Main Event Mafia no one messed with Kurt Angle, no one would even dream of trying anything that Raven has done here while I was the Godfather.
But after talking with Karen and really thinking about it. Petey Williams, the “Canadian” Destroyer, Raven saying that he works for some guy called Chaos who was stupid to leave Williams in charge of taking me out. And now TNA has won the ratings war and is the top company in the world just like you preached on Jan 7. So I realised something . Your not hype, you’re not incompetent. Your the damn mastermind behind this whole thing. He want to take Sting out because he does the sharpshooter better than you. You want to take me out because even though you’re the so called best, I’m the greatest. And you wanted the ratings to beat Vince McMahon the man that screwed you all those years ago. You are behind Raven trying to take control of TNA.
Hart: Are you finished Kurt? You’re delusional. And you’re wrong. Why would I want Raven to take control for me when Dixie Carter and Jeff Jarrett gave me control of making matches from day one.
Angle: So what match have you got for me tonight Hart? Candian Destroyer? Senshi? The Monster Abyss? Or some other guy that is good at ending careers so you can take me out. Huh?! Because I know you wont be giving me a title shot, you made that clear the day you walked in here.
Hart: I begged you not to wrestle Williams at Kingdom Come, but arrogance and your temper blinded you to the point that right now you could be in a wheel chair. I’ve got nothing to prove to you. Last week you and I stood side by side as we took TNA back from Raven. You were a big part of that. So tonight Kurt, if you can wrestle, tonight you will be in a 4 corners #1 World title contender match. It will be Kurt Angle vs. Desmond Wolfe vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Samoa Joe. And it will be at the top of the hour.
But as Hart puts his hand out for Angle to shake, the moment is interrupted by Raven’s music. Emerging from the tunnel is Giant Bernard and Tyson Tomko. Behind them is Raven and protecting Raven’s six is Team 3D. Raven seems to be guarded by all sides as he makes his way down the ramp mic in hand.
Raven: Hitman, since you are in the mood for making matches I thought I’d come out here and ask you for one. You see as much as “make the matches” around here we both know you are not going to get me in the ring unless I want to. So you want to put me in the ring with Sting then it’s by my rules. Tonight if you want me and Sting in the 6 sides it will for the first time ever a Capture the Flag Match. These four killers and me vs. Sting and any four wrestlers of his choosing. A ten man tag match with one exception. The only men who can be pinned in the match is myself or Sting. What do you say Hitman.
Hart: If this is the only way for Sting to get his hands around your throat then you’re on.
Raven: Thank you Mr. Hart
Raven smiles at Hart, Angle standing to the side looks at Hart suspiciously. He gets in Hart’s face but hasn’t the words. Raven’s music plays as he walks up the ramp still surrounded, protected even by his entourage of as he put it “killers”.
Mike Tenay and Don West welcome everyone back to Impact and show a graphic of firstly at the top of the hour a 4 corners World Title number one contenders match Angle vs. Wolfe vs. Daniels vs. Samoa Joe. And then for the main event never seen before Capture the Flag match. A ten man tag where the catch is only Sting or Raven can be pinned or submitted.
Backstage Christy Hemme is with the Charismatic Enigma Jeff HardyMatch #1
Generation Me. (Jermey and Max Buck) vs. Neo-1-GT (Paul London and Brian Kendrick)
The cocky team of London and Kendrick pie face the younger team trying to intimidate them, but Gen Me, fire back with a slap to the face and then a quick follow up running the ropes and hitting flying leg lariats to get this one started! London rolls out of the ring holding his jaw as Kendrick is hit with double team moves.
After being hit several times, London comes in to break up the flow of high risk high impact moves. NEO-1-GT get things going back their way with spine buster.
Finish: Kendrick goes for the enziguri on Jeremy but it is ducked and turned into a double team superkick! Jeremy hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker on Kendrick, bt keeps him across his knee as Max sommersaults onto Kendrick crushing him even more! London tries to help but Gen Me are ready for him too and Max front dropkicks him through the ropes, holds on skins the cat and holds the top rope down. Jeremy then hits a suicide dive through Max’s legs!
Kendrick slowly gets to his feet but he is hit by a rolling foreman’s carry by Max allowing Jeremy climb the turnbuckle and he hits a 450 Splash followed by a moonsault by Max. 1.2.3
Winners via pinfall Generation Me at 7:42
London on the outside is in shock as Gen Me’s music plays. Kendrick rolls around on the mat as the youngsters celebrate their huge upset.
Tenay and West mention the World tag titles that NEO-1-GT have won in the past and Gen Me’s win tonight is huge for them and will catapult them into title contention.
Hemme: Last week Jeff you got put through a table by LAX at the order of Raven. And at Kingdom Come you lost your match with Desmond Wolfe thanks to a Carbon Footprint by the 7 foot Matt Morgan. Your TNA tenure is running as hot as you would have liked?
Hardy: You know Christy, TNA is the highest rating show, it is the top company in the world and it is where the top wrestlers in the world do their thing. So I knew coming in this wasn’t going to be a cake walk this was going to be the greatest challenge of my life. That’s why the TNA Championship is the top prize in this industry.
As for tonight goes, I’ve got a score to settle with Raven, so Stinger if you need a soldier I’m ready to go into battle. As far as Matt Morgan goes, man, I challenge you to a match at Destination X. See you soon big man.
In the parking garage the Phenomenal Mustang pulls in but is stopped in its tracks as Sting stands like a statue in the middle of the road. AJ gets out, and Sting states “We have to talk.”
JB: At this time, it was pleasure to interview the Champion of the World AJ Styles. Thank you for giving us this time AJ what is on your mind.Match #2
Ultimate X Qualifier
Jay Lethal vs. Mistico
Tenay and West explain that at Destination X there will be the traditional Ultimate X match and it will 4 competitors contending for the X title. The current new Champion Petey Williams and the former Champion Dinero due to his rematch clause are already booked in the match. There will be two qualifiers for the other two spots starting tonight.
Out to ringside limps the new Champion, the Canadian Destroyer Petey Williams. He puts the headset on and places the X Division title on the table for the world to see.
Williams: I am the NEW X Division Champion. I defeated Pope last week with only one wheel guys, imagine what I’m going to do when I’m healed up in time for Destination X. That’s right.. I’m going to end careers. Last week I took Pope’s title at the ppv I take his career. And I’ll do the same to anyone else who tries to take my title from me.
The bell rings as Jay Lethal starts taunting the Lucha star Mistico. He pushes Mistico and tells him he is going to Destination X. He lashes out witha closed fist but Mistico blocks it and delivers a knife edged chop! Mistico comes off the ropes with a flying body block! The huge fan favourite climbs the ropes and delivers a frog splah. 1.2 Lethal kicks out and grabbing his stomach rolls out.
Finish: Lethal climbs the top rope but Mistico runs up the turnbuckles and delivers a super-arm drag! Lethal crashes to the mat. Lethal tries to get his feet but is hit with a hurrincanrana. Lethal is dazed and is hit with a springboard moonsault. 1.2.. Lethal kicks out just before the 3 and is hurting. Mistico feeds off the crowd and readies for a superkick. Lethal getting to his feet finally catches the superkick, spins Mistico into a devastating dragon suplex! 1.. 2...
Mistico kicks out but is holding the back of his head as Lethal catches his breathe. He signals for the end and hits the Lethal Comibination, and climbs the turnbuckles. He drops the elbow, but Mistico moves out of the way. Mistico locks in the Fujiwara Armbar and Lethal has no choice but to tap out.
Winner via submission and qualified for X Division title shot in Ultimate X, Mistico at 6:30
Petey Williams shows Mistico the belt as Tenay send it to the back with JB.
Styles: JB, a lot has happened here in TNA. Last week when we all took back TNA from Raven was the roster coming together to over throw him. I’ve had my ups and downs with Chris Daniels. Yes it is no secret we aren’t friends anymore. But I never thought he would use what was going on and risk the future of the company he helped build to attack me. I guess I was wrong. Daniels you are a jealous sorry excuse for a TNA original and the last bit of respect I had for you is gone. I hope you lose tonight in your four way match because the only thing better than me kicking your ass, is you not getting anywhere near the title scene again.
JB: AJ I’ve got to ask you. What did Sting say to you earlier?
Styles: Sting told me tonight he is riding into battle and he ends it all tonight. 5 on 5 in a never before seen innovative TNA first match, Capture the Flag! I told him I was ready to stand by his side to fight for TNA like I always have for the last 7 years. He told me no. He told me that as the Champion I have the weight of the company on my shoulders and I’m a leader now and not a soldier. He says the fate of the company is with me and tonight I have to let him be the one who gets his hands dirty. I don’t agree with him, but I will honour the Stinger’s wishes.
JB: So who has Sting chosen to finally finish this war with Raven?
Styles: You will find out when the Raven does.
Out to the ring walks the TNA founder and the King of the Mountain Jeff Jarrett. My world plays and the pyro ignites shooting out from his guitar. He grabs a mic.
Jarrett: In this business you don’t have too many friends. For the majority of ones career you have to worry about yourself because when it comes down to it no one else is going to pay your bills and there can only be the one Champion. I considered Scott Steiner a friend of mine. Scott last week you did the wrong thing. You made the wrong choice. You see I have been thinking about this all week, but when I just heard what AJ Styles said about his former friend Daniels, I had to come out here and tell you Scott you made the wrong choice. How dare you Scotty join with a man who has tried everything in his power to tear down everything that I have built in the last seven years. You decided to help Raven. Get out here Steiner and explain yourself now!
Out walks Steiner, and he is not impressed. In fact he looks disgusted that Jarrett would call him out. He snatches a mic off of So Cal Val and walks into the ring with his former friend.
Steiner: First of all Jeff, you know me better than anyone. So you shouldn’t be surprised when I tell you I don’t care. I break necks and cash cheques. And then I party all night long with my freaks. All I care about is my freaks and my peaks Jeff, not you or your company.
Now just so you know I don’t take orders from anyone, especially that dirty insane Raven. I was promised a whole lot more than you ever gave me. The guy who is really running this came to me personally and asked me and I thought why not because I am the man and I do deserve more than what you and TNA have ever given me.
Years ago you called me up Jeff and asked me to take out Sting. How many title shot have I got? How many did you give me? None. You’ve gone soft Jeff. You are pathetic. You used to run this place, Planet Jarrett remember. Now you’re Dixie Carter’s and Bret Hart’s whipping boy. You make me sick. You brought me in to destroy people. People like Sting. I hate Sting. But I hate what you’ve become more.
You got your answers. We used to be friends, so I’m giving you a pass Jeff. Don’t get in my way. Call me out again, and I’ll TRASH you! Heh!
Steiner barges past Jarrett as he leaves the ring. Walking up the ramp he never looks back turning his back on his former friend. Jarrett looks at the mat and looks up at the man he used to call friend, but above him he sees the TNA logo and knows what he must do.
Jarrett: Scotty! Not so fast. I brought you into TNA, so the damage you do is on my hands. So if you wont fight for TNA, I’m going to be the one who takes you out of TNA. At Destination X you are going to tell me who is behind trying to take down my company and if you don’t , I’m going to beat you until you do...choke on that.... slapnuts.
Steiner can’t believe his ears. He rips off his sunglasses and runs back to the ring. Jarrett is ready for a fight. Steiner stops grabs a rope... but backs away. The fans boo as Steiner backs away but he walks over the commentary table and pie faces Don West. He grabs Don’s mic.
Steiner: You want to fight me. You want talk to me like that. Huh! Watch your back Jarrett, because I’m going to stick the knife in and twist it. Heh.
Back from commercial Tenay and West talk about what they just witnessed between the two former friends and how Raven or whoever is giving the orders, is tearing apart more than even he could imagine. They also can’t even think who could be pulling Raven’s strings at this point. Angle thinks it’s Hart all for ratings. They send it to the back as Christy Hemme is with Christopher Daniels.
Daniels: Once again TNA throws another roadblock my way. I am the rightful contender to the World title. AJ knows I can beat him, and so because Kurt and Joe helped Hart get TNA back from Raven, they get to once again get in my way for the belt. Wolfe I’ve giot no problem with you brother, just like me you earned something, you beat Jeff Hardy, a former recent Champion of the World.
But just like me the glass ceiling comes crashing down and Joe and Angle once again get a free chance. I beat Joe at Kingdom Come. Angle won an unsanctioned match which is not on any record books. It’s a conspiracy. So tonight I’m just going to have to go out there and win yet again. Oh and as for cry baby AJ Styles. Yeah I attacked you last week. I’m sorry the company gives you everything and me nothing. I’m going to make you cry even more before this is all over. And that is gospel.
The World Champion’s music hits and down to join the commentary team is AJ Styles. Belt over his shoulder he shakes hands with the team as he wants to watch close up the number 1 contender match.
Tenay and West replay the highlights of the match as AJ and Daniels stare each other down.Match #3
4 corners match for a World Title shot at Destination X
Desmond Wolfe vs. Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Kurt Angle
Wolfe enters the ring first and grabs a mic.
Wolfe: Daniels you’ve got it all wrong sunshine. You aint going to win anything son. Because when it comes down to it, you Joe or Mr. Mangled are just not in my league. I’m hungry like a wolf and tonight I’m gonna end the lot of ya.
The next entrant is Samoa Joe. He rushes the ring and goes straight for Wolfe. The two men start brawling as Daniels music plays. The Fallen Angel sees his opportunity and attacks Joe from behind. Daniels and Wolfe double team Joe. Daniels whips Joe into he ropes and Wolfe hits a devastating lariat. Wolfe goes for the cover 1….
Daniels drags Wolf off of Joe. Wolfe immediately stands up as Daniels jumps out of the ring. Wolf stares down Daniels but with a smile the Fallen Angel puts his hands up and then motions for him to keep working on Joe. Wolf turns back to Joe and starts stretching Joe’s arm and working on his back with knees.
The Impact Zone ignites as Kurt Angle’s music hits and from the elevator emerges the Olympic Gold medallist. He walks down and goes straight for his old nemesis Wolfe. Daniels stands on the outside looking for his opportunity, as Angle attacks with European uppercuts on Wolfe.
Finish: Daniels sees his opportunity and runs in to get a quick win but Kurt cuts him off and unloads some visious right hands. Joe clothesleines both men over the top rope and to the floor only to be rolled up by Wolfe. 1..2…
Joe kicks out and catches Wolfe with an arm bar. He quickly transitions to an STF as Daniels quickly breaks up the submission with a triple rope moonsault! Daniels then delivers a flying knee strike to Joe in the corner but turns into a lariat from Wolfe. 1..2…
Kurt breaks up the pin and throws Wolfe through the ropes to the floor. He locks in the ankle lock on Daniels only to be hit with the tree trunk legs of Joe with a leg lariat!
The furious pace of the match is wearing the guys out as Daniels hits a belly to belly on the 280 pound Joe and then signals for the BME. Only to be stopped by Angle. Daniels punch is blocked and Angle turns it into a german suplex. And then another and then another!. Angle pulls the straps down as he readies himself for the Olympic Slam. Joe though unloads furious kicks into Angle’s mid section. Angle’s feet leave the mat as Joe drives his feet into Angle’s ribs.
Angle slumps to the mat in pain as Joe embarrasses Angle by face washing him several times before running the ropes and delivering a vicious super facewash! Angle rolls out of the ring holding his face. Wolfe returns and Joe meets him. He delivers his quick sumo slaps and strikes to Wolfe pushing him into the corner. Joe lifts him up for the Musclebuster only for Wolfe to kick Joe off. Joe roars and hits his leaping enzaguri that reaches Wolfe’s face all the way on the top rope! MUSCLEBUSTAAAAH!
… Daniels breaks it up and hits Angles Wings on Joe! He pushes Joe away and covers Wolfe. Kurt breaks it up just barely. But the Olympian is still very, very hurt. Wolfe and Joe are still down and Daniels like a vulture licks his lips, smiles, looks at the camera and hits Angels Wings on Angle. 1.2.3.
Winner via pinfall and World title #1 contender Christopher Daniels at 16:32
AJ throws his headset off standing up as Daniels’ hand is raised. Laughing he points at Styles and gives the belt signal. He jumps down and meets AJ face to face. AJ stares at him, not moving while Daniels has a grin from ear to ear and is ignoring AJ but looking at the World title instead.
Backstage JB is with the Wildcat Chris Harris
Harris: I’m back here in TNA and I’ve got alot of time to make up for, And it all starts with Beer Money. At Destination X I’m bringing with me a partner with so many tag titles to his name he is going to destroy Beer Money and I’m going to be the one standing tall at the end of the night.
Konnan and LAX walk into frame. Konan look himup and down and tells him to “scram”. Harris puts his hands up and walks off as Konnan snatches the mic from JB and Homisicde pushes him off camera.
Konnan: Machine Guns. This is the part of the show where I challenge you boys to a title match at Destination X. At Kingdom Come we destroyed everyone in the four corners match only for you to steal from us. No one steels from us you stoopid gringos. Did you see what we did last week to the so called best in the business RVD and Jeff Hardy. We almost sent them to the morgue ese. No more games. No more talk. At Destination X on the big stage we take your damn titles and become 4 time Champions. Ariba la raza.
Mixed tag-tag match...

Gail and Sarita cheer as Sabin tags in Shelley and the Champs go to work with their lightning quick double team offence.
Finish: The biggest guy in the match, Brutus Magnus, hits a brutal clothesline on Shelley. He “flirts” Gail and Sarita before tagging Williams in. The Brits put the boots to Alex but as the ref sends Brutus back into his corner Sarita launches herself and hits a spinning hurricanrana on Doug! Sarita and Alex high five and Alex points at Sabin for the tag, waits for the reply for the crowd and then he points at Gail. He tags in Gail at the agreement with the fans and Gail jumps in.

Raven, Tomko, Giant Bernard, and Team 3D
Sting, Jeff Hardy, Jeff Jarrett, Mick Foley and Rob Van Dam
The ring announcer states the rules. 5 on 5 tag match. No disqualification, the only way to win is to pin or submit the captain of each team. Raven or Sting. He introduces the teams as we see shots of the TNA locker room all watching monitors backstage to see the outcome of the match.

RVD and Hardy come off the ropes landing big time moves on their counterparts! Bernard smashes Foley with a huge bicycle kick. Jarrett and Tomko fall out of the ring. There are two referees watching each of the team captains. Bernard has started protecting his captain and goes after Sting. Raven escapes and stands on the ramp watching the battle unfold.
All ten men give everything they have. They brawl on the ramp, the stage, in the fans around ring side in the ring. Jarrett has his guitar, Foley his barbed wire bat. Team 3D pull out tables. Capture the Flag has turned into World War 3!!
Finish: Jarrett hits the stroke on Devon on the floor. He turns around only to be taken out by a hellacious Steinerline! Steiner does push ups near his former friend. He then picks him up and gorilla presses him into the steel ramp! Sting goes after Steiner but he runs off and Raven blind sides Sting with a steel chair shot!
RVD and Tomko are brawling in the crowd. While Hardy hits the swanton on Brother Ray inside the ring. He sees Sting in trouble and tries to make the save but he is hit with a chair to the back. Raven then tries to drive his skull onto the steel ramp with the Raven Effect DDT but Hardy reverses it and calls to the fans for the Twist of Fate! Boom! Hardy is levelled by the Carbon Footprint. Morgan has decided to get involved also.
Raven smiles as Morgan is yelled at by the referees. Sting is now at the mercy of Raven and he delivers chair shot after chair shot. He drives the edge of the chair into Sting’s throat. RVD tries to run back, but he is met by a double team from Bernard and Tomko. Raven picks up the limp Icon and looks out to the crowd. He pauses savouring the moment, and then delivers the Raven Effect DDT on the steel ramp.
Winner via pinfall Raven’s team at 11.51
Raven stands over Sting is boot firmly placed into the fallen icon’s chin. He laps up the boos as they rain down on him. Rubbish fly from the crowd as Raven has beaten his nemesis. His eyes closed he breathes in the hate. He then drops to his knees and starts beating down on the unconscious Stinger.
Styles yells for someone to give him a mic
Styles: Raven, Sting made me give my word I wouldn’t get involved but if I’m to lead TNA than I’m going to do it my way. I’m going to lead from the front. Next week Raven you and me in the ring.
Raven: Styles do you really think I would wrestle you. You are the Champion of the World. And me, well I’m not in my prime, to be able to keep up with the best in the world.
