There are several news items to report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” broadcast on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling prepares for the upcoming August 12 “Hard Justice” Pay-Per-View event:

On Thursday’s broadcast, TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle introduced his family to the wrestling world. However, what the wrestling world got to see was exactly how the Olympic gold medalist treats his wife and daughter! At the end of the broadcast, Karen Angle finally had enough of her husband’s ego and told him she wanted an end to their marriage! Samoa Joe was present for the marital meltdown and – after Karen Angle left the ring – Joe told him he was taking his championships next at Hard Justice on August 12!

Also on the huge broadcast, Abyss and Sting faced off in a ladder match with Christian Cage and AJ Styles. A contract was hanging above the ring – if Cage and Styles pulled it down, Abyss would have to stop his war against Cage’s coalition. However, if Sting and Abyss won, the monster would get to choose his match against Cage at Hard Justice. In the end it was Cage, Styles and Tomko using the numbers game to their advantage – that is until “The Punisher” Andrew Martin made his TNA debut and help Sting and Abyss win the match! As a result, Abyss gets to pick the match of his choice against Cage – what will his decision be? Tune in Thursday night to find out!


- In tag team action it was The Fallen Angel and Senshi (with “Primetime” Elix Skipper) of Triple X defeating “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal and “The Guru” Sonjay Dutt. During the bout, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley of the Motor City Machineguns watched on and then went face-to-face with the members of Triple X after their win. Is there a war in the making between Triple X and the Motor City Machineguns?

- Also during the broadcast, Team 3D defeated the team of “Wildcat” Chris Harris and Eric Young after Dustin Rhodes took Harris out the match with another attack, allowing 3D to get the win on Young. After the bout, Robert Roode and Ms. Brooks hit the ring to confront Young. Roode said it was Young’s turn to be humiliated as they poured honey on him and covered him with feathers.

- As announced earlier in the week, it will be The Latin American Xchange taking on the Voodoo Kin Mafia on Sunday, August 12 at “Hard Justice”.
