Despite Hurricane Frances, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling still presented Impact! from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida!
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Impact! opened up with a highlight video package from this past Wednesday's Pay-Per-View. We then went to ringside as you saw none other than The King of The Mountain, the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Jarrett! He got on the microphone saying how he would beat Jeff Hardy this Wednesday night on the final TNA Wednesday night Pay-Per-View. It was basically the same speech he gave this past Wednesday night. The fans reacted with "Hardy!" chants as "Double J" Jeff Jarrett then left. We then went to a commercial break.
To come back from the commercial break, 3 Live Kru, Kid Kash, and Dallas all gave their opinions on the upcoming Havyweight Title match for this Wednesday night. 3LK chose Hardy while Kash and Dallas chose Jarrett.
Next up we all saw 6-man tag team action as it was "The Monster" Abyss, Alex Shelley, and Japan's Alex Shelley taking on not one, not two, but the 3 Live Kru! 3 Live Kru had control for most of the bout. The breaking team of Alex Shelley and Abyss once again could not co-exist. Nosawa couldn't even do anything about it. The finish of the bout came when James and Konnan tossed Abyss to the floor, then threw Shelley into Abyss, as Killings hit Nosawa with the scissor kick for the 1-2-3!
Highlights of "The Asylum Street Fight" from this past Wednesday night were shown.
Kid Kash came out with Dallas playing the back-up role. Dallas carried a folding table that had AJ spray painted around a big X. The young veteran, former WCW star, Kid Romeo had a little offense in the beginning but that was it. It was over before it started as Kash hit his Money Maker for the win. Dallas then put the table in the ring as Kash came off the top rope with his frog splash and put Romeo through it. Brutal at it's best!
Footage from last night's World Tag Team Title match was shown for the following match.
The NWA Tag Team Champions of the World in The Naturals were in action this week on Impact! as they took on the duo of Sharkboy and D-Ray 3000. The Naturals made quick work of them as they hit The Natural Disaster for the victory!
Footage of Bobby Roode, Frankie Kazarian, Michael Shane and AJ Styles giving opinions on the World Title match. Roode, Kazarian, and Shane picked Jeff Jarrett while AJ Styles picked Jeff Hardy.
This match was a warmup for D'Amores match this Wednesday night with Dusty Rhodes. D'Amore came out wearing a robe. Team Canada made ring announcer read a overhyped card on D'Amores ring credentials but he showed off his skills. Chasyn Rance was his opponent for this evening. Scott D'Amore then hit his top rope moonsault in which highly impressed the crowd in attendance. He then got up and picked up Rance for a 99 Krusher followed up by the 1, 2, 3. Impact! went to a commercial break.
"The Alpha Male" Monty Brown then took on Adam Flash. This was a very good match but too short as Monty Brown hit The Pounce for the win. Monty then got on the microphone taunting Hardy and Jarrett.
"The Franchise" Shane Douglas then interviewed Dusty Rhodes about the upcoming PPV match with Scott D'Amore where Vince Russo will be the special referee. Before the main event, Shane Douglas and Jerry Lynn gave opinions on the match. Jeff Hammond's "Six Points of Impact" was once again with Elliot Sadler.
And in the main event of the evening, it was "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles and "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy took on Elite Guard members Onyx and Hotstuff Hernandez. AJ and Hardy had control most of the bout, although Onyx and Hernandez had their high points in this. During the match Vince Russo joined Mike Tenay and Don West for commentary. Good match that saw Hardy hit Onyx with the Swanton bomb to win the match. Impact! went off the air!
