- Thanks to Justin (J-Lap), Nate Da Gr8 and Eddie for the following TNA Impact Wrestling spoilers from Wednesday’s tapings in New York City. These will air on September 4th:
* Tonight’s crowd isn’t as packed. They’re moving people up to the better seats to fill them in.
* Bobby Roode and Eric Young kick off the show with an in-ring promo about how the cage match ended last week.
* Taryn Terrell defeated Madison Rayne in what was said to be a bad match.
* War hero Chris Melendez comes out to a nice pop. He wins his debut match over DJ Zema Ion with a sideslam. Melendez looked green but that was expected. He got a nice pop and a “we the people” chant at one point.
* James Storm comes out and introduces Sanada, who has a new look. Storm calls him The Great Sanada, a shot at The Great Muta. Sanada vs. Austin Aries is next. Sanada wins with the mist to the face and a kick like Muta.
* Young vs. Roode in a #1 contender’s match will take place later. They had to clean the mist from Sanada off the ring.
* Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and MVP come to the ring. They talk trash about NYC. Samoa Joe interrupts to a big pop and they set up Joe vs. Lashley. Joe gets beat down until security breaks it up.
* The Menagerie defeated Robbie E and Jessie Godderz in an Xplosion match earlier.
* DJ Zema Ion vs. Manik vs. Tigre Uno vs. Homicide vs. Crazzy Steve vs. Low Ki in a #1 contender’s match is next. Homicide gets the win. After the match, Storm and Sanada come in. Sanada kicks Manik and they drag him off to the back.
* Ethan Carter III and Rockstar Spud come out. They cut a promo until Rhino interrupts and attacks Ethan, setting up a match for later.
* Roode vs. Young in a #1 contender’s match is next. This was a great exchange with the crowd into it. Lots of near finishes. Roode gets the win and they shake hands after the match. It’s possible TNA is taping out of order tonight between the two episodes.
