There are several major news items to report on from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” as TNA Wrestling counts down the hours until this Sunday’s “Slammiversary” Pay-Per-View epic event from Nashville, Tennessee!
REVENGE: ABYSS RETURNS TO ANNIHILATE CHRISTIAN CAGE!
On Thursday night, Christian Cage was set to compete in his King Of The Mountain qualifier, but he didn’t know who his opponent would be. To Cage’s shock, it would turn out to be the returning Abyss – who was on a mission to completely annihilate “The Instant Classic”. Abyss was a monster possessed in the match and not even interference from Tomko and AJ Styles could help Cage. Abyss would ultimately get himself disqualified for hitting senior referee Rudy Charles with a steel chair, allowing Cage to advance to the Pay-Per-View main event. After the bout, Abyss unloaded a bag of broken glass to exact his revenge on Cage, but “The Instant Classic” escaped the monster’s wrath!
THE FALLEN ANGEL COSTS STING HIS SECOND CHANCE AT KOTM
Also on Thursday night, Jim Cornette gave Sting, Rhino and Tomko a second chance at gaining entry into the King Of The Mountain match when he signed Sting, Tomko and Rhino to face Kurt Angle, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe. If Sting, Tomko or Rhino were able to pin one of their opponents, they would take their place in the main event bout. Prior to the match, Tomko was attacked backstage and was unable to compete in the bout. In hindsight, it must have been Abyss. Later, "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels attempted to enter the match in Tomko's place, but he instead blindsided Sting, causing the icon to get beat by Kurt Angle!
TWO NEW MATCHES SIGNED FOR SUNDAY’S SLAMMIVERSARY
During Thursday’s SpikeTV broadcast, two new matches were announced for Sunday’s Pay-Per-View. The first will feature “Wildcat” Chris Harris and “The War Machine” Rhino (along with Hector Guerrero) taking on The Latin American Xchange (with Konnan). Also signed for Sunday after “iMPACT!” went off the air is The Icon Sting taking on “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!
In other news from Thursday’s “iMPACT!”…The combination of The Steiner Brothers and Basham & Damaja got the win over Team 3D and the Voodoo Kin Mafia when Christy Hemme interfered, allowing her team to get the win. Also on the program, “The Guru” Sonjay Dutt led Kevin Nash and “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal in meditation to help Lethal prepare for his X Championship bout this Sunday against Chris Sabin!
