Opening of iMPACT!

Taz comes out to the ring to kick off iMPACT! With a microphone in hand. He says years ago, he used to wrestle for a company called ECW and during that time he sustained career threatening injuries and prevented him from what he loved to do best and that’s perform for the fans. He called 100’s of matches for WWE and some of Wrestlemania’s greatest matches as a color commentator. He said he knew there was more he could do and he saw TNA..he saw Samoa Joe…he said they had a lot of similarities but Joe showed remorse..where he was unable to do that. He had a talk with Joe..he told him its not about doing what makes people happy..its about what wins titles and makes money. He became the teacher, Joe became the student. He says he & Joe are indebted to Kurt Angle and the prestigious MEM.

Tonight, he says, Joe will add more gold..and that’s the TNA X Division title..and he’s got a message for Homicide…”beat Joe if you can, survive if he lets you.” Samoa Joe’s
music hits and he comes out to the ring for his match.

*X Division Title Match – Homicide defeated Samoa Joe via DQ.
Joe hit the ref, locked in the Tazmission on Homicide and postmatch, continued to beat down on Homicide as ordered by Taz. Mexican music hit & a new video for Hernandez played as he ran down to the ring to aid his LAX partner. Joe stood in the corner with his arms crossed as Hernandez made his way into the ring. He’s lost a noticeable amount of weight & looks great. Taz & Joe walked off as Hernandez checked on Homicide.

The Main Event Mafia come out to the ring. Kurt Angle addresses what went down at Victory Road. He wants to put everyone in the back at ease and no one is getting fired. He is a compassionate guy. He says TNA needs the MEM. And tonight for the fans, he has a present for them all. Nash, Booker & Steiner are all going to put their titles on the line for their entertainment. Jarrett is home, Sting is 1000’s of miles away licking his wounds, so only there is Mick Foley to attend to.

Foley comes out to the ring he said that Kurt made him tap out after he said it would never happen. He was ready to go home until he heard Angle was messing with the front office and saying that there would be no TNA without MEM. He admits they all dropped the ball last night and maybe he ran out of gas last night…and that with Kurt as a 13 time Champ, knows what its like on 12 occasions how to have a bad day. Angle says Foley reminds him of an old dog and a dog needs a master…says he could be his master..gives him the name Old Tapper. He says if it wasn’t for him & Joe outsmarting him, Foley would still be TNA Champion. Angle says he’s the man and could kick Foley’s ass right now, but won’t do that cause he wants one last thing from him. He pulls out a set of keys, they are the keys to Mick Foley’s office. He says they are gonna hang them up high on a pole for a match tonight.

*TNA Legends Title Match – Kevin Nash w/Jenna Morasca defeated Amazing Red.

10 Man Tag Match: Doug Williams, Brutus Magnus, Rob Terry, Kiyoshi & Sheik Abdul Bashir defeated Beer Money, Daniels, AJ Styles & Eric Young when Magnus pinned Styles. Styles went for the Styles Clash while everyone was brawling on the outside, Young tapped Styles on the shoulder & gave him a piledriver allowing Magnus to get the pin. He then posed with the Invasion in the ring.

*TNA Tag Title Match: Scott Steiner & Booker T w/Sharmell def Big Rocco & Sally Boy when Steiner pinned Rocco.

*TNA Knockouts Battle Royal – The Winner receives $50,000 & a spot in the Main Event Mafia Referee: Traci Brooks Participants: ODB, Alyssa Flash, SoJo Bolt, Daffney, Taylor Wilde, Sarita, Awesome Kong, Velvet Sky, Madison Rayne, Angelina Love and Tara..it came down to Kong & Tara ..they were both close to eliminating one another, when Traci Brooks flipped them over the rope to win and began to celebrate. Nash introduced her as the winner and she jumped into his arms.

Best of 3 series: winner of series goes into the main event of Hard Justice. AJ Styles defeated Matt Morgan.

There have been graphics for TNA 200, so I’m guessing its iMPACT’s 200th episode

Office Keys On A Pole Match: Mick Foley vs. Kurt Angle

At one point, Angle had the keychain & fell with it, leaving the hook up on the pole, Earl Hebner had to reattach the keys. Foley used the Mandible Claw and knocked Angle out, he went for the keys, but the MEM came down and attacked Foley. They held Foley while Angle belittled him on the microphone. Bobby Lashley’s music hit and he came out via the heel tunnel and made his way to the ring. He came in and embraced Angle with a smile on his face. He looked to be aligned with the Mafia but then instead of attacking Foley, he turned around and punched Angle..he went after the Mafia and they made their way out of the ring and up the ramp. Lashley then helped up Foley and posed for the fans as the Mafia looked on with disgust.
