There are several major news items to report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling heads towards next Sunday’s “Destination X” epic event live on Pay-Per-View!
MASSACRE IN NEW YORK – THE LAX STRIKES AGAIN!
On Thursdays “iMPACT!” broadcast, Alex Shelley aired footage of his latest “epic” – The Latin American Xchange attacking wrestling legend Johnny Rodz in Brooklyn, New York! Rodz trained Brother Devon in professional wrestling and is a close friend of the Team 3D member. After airing the footage, Brother Ray came out to confront Shelley for taking part in the assault – which brought out Shelley’s mentor Kevin Nash! With Ray’s back turned, The LAX took the opportunity to hit the ring and brutally attack their nemesis – ultimately putting him through a wooden table!
CORNETTE ATTEMPTS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE STEINER/ANGLE CHAOS
As expected, the bitter hatred between Kurt Angle and Scott Steiner resulted in mass chaos on Thursday’s broadcast. However, TNA management director Jim Cornette was determined to keep the peace! After a brawl between Angle and Steiner nearly resulted in the Olympic gold medalist putting his ankle lock on Cornette, the management director has Angle thrown out of the building for the remainder of the night!
WITH HELP FROM CAGE, TOMKO BEATS SAMOA JOE!
In the main event of Thursday’s broadcast, Samoa Joe faced off against Christian Cage’s juggernaut Tomko. However, with Angle thrown out earlier, it was open season on “The Samoan Submission Machine”. With help from the World Champion, Tomko was able to beat Joe, but that was only the beginning as the duo – joined by Scott Steiner - continued their assault on Joe – until Abyss hit the ring! After chasing off Cage and Tomko, Abyss nailed Joe with his Black Hole Slam. With James Mitchell eliminated from TNA thanks to Sting, Abyss has been uncontrollable in recent weeks.
Also on Thursday’s “iMPACT!” on SpikeTV…
- “Wildcat” Chris Harris took part in a sitdown interview with Leticia to discuss a possible return to TNA Wrestling. According to Harris, his eye is still nowhere near 100 percent. However, that isn’t going to stop him from attempting to exact revenge on his former America’s Most Wanted partner James Storm.
- In addition on the broadcast, Sting – laying in a casket – once against delivered a message to Abyss about their “Last Rites” match at “Destination X”. According to Sting, life as Abyss knows it is about to change dramatically! What does Sting mean with these cryptic words? Hopefully we’ll find out more next Thursday night!
