There are several news items to report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” broadcast on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling prepares for Sunday’s “Hard Justice” Pay-Per-View event!
ADAM “PACMAN” JONES TO APPEAR LIVE THIS SUNDAY
Adam “Pacman” Jones made his TNA television debut on Thursday’s “iMPACT!” on SpikeTV, announcing he would appear this Sunday at the “Hard Justice” Pay-Per-View event. It was the first time the wrestling world heard Pacman comment on joining Total Nonstop Action! According to Pacman, he’s out for redemption.
DOOMSDAY CHAMBER OF BLOOD MATCH ANNOUNCED FOR SUNDAY
Last week, Abyss won the right to name his match at Sunday’s “Hard Justice” and it was announced this week on “iMPACT!” that the TNA star will team with Sting and “The Punisher” Andrew Martin to take on Christian Cage, AJ Styles and Tomko in a “Doomsday Chamber Of Blood” match! The bout will be held inside the Six Sides Of Steel cage with barbed wire lining the top – and in order to qualify to pin your opponent you have to make someone bleed! In addition, TNA management director Jim Cornette announced the winner of the bout will earn a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at September’s “No Surrender” Pay-Per-View.
SAMOA JOE INVITES KAREN ANGLE TO HARD JUSTICE
Kurt Angle arrived at “iMPACT!” a broken man, as his wife Karen told him last week their marriage was over. At the end of the broadcast, Samoa Joe brought out Karen Angle and invited her to sit front row this Sunday to watch him beat her husband! This brought out Angle, who pleaded with his wife to take him back “for the kids” – but Karen reiterated that she wanted a divorce and left the ring! At that point, Team 3D hit the arena and accused Joe of being a home wrecker and that they wanted their TNA World Tag Team Title back. Joe refused, which resulted in Team 3D and Angle mauling The Samoan Submission Machine. However, The Steiner Brothers hit the ring to assist Joe as “iMPACT!” went off the air.
DUSTIN RHODES INTRODUCES “BLACK REIGN” TO THE WRESTLING WORLD
Also on Thursday’s “iMPACT!”, a video aired in which Dustin Rhodes promised “Black Reign” was coming this Sunday at “Hard Justice” to battle “Wildcat” Chris Harris. What bizarre creation does Dustin have planned for the wrestling world? Tune in and find out!
