There are several major news items to report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” broadcast on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling heads towards the September 9 “No Surrender” Pay-Per-View event:
- During the broadcast, it was announced that next Thursday night on "iMPACT!" it will be Sting vs. Christian Cage vs. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe in a four-way match with the winner becoming Kurt Angle's partner at the No Surrender Pay-Per-View!
- In the “iMPACT!” main event, Kurt Angle was able to beat The Steiner Brothers with the help of Team 3D, who interfered in the bout on behalf of the Olympic Gold Medalist. Earlier in the broadcast, Team 3D apologized to The Steiners and admitted they were the better team, but it was all just mind games from Brother Ray and Brother Devon.
- Eric Young got his autograph from Adam “Pacman” Jones, but it wasn’t what he was hoping for. After Eric lost to Ron “The Truth” Killings, Pacman Jones entered the ring and spraypainted “Pac” on EY’s back.
- Also on the broadcast, manager James Mitchell congratulated Abyss on earning the TNA World Heavyweight Title shot at “No Surrender” against Kurt Angle, but the maniacal Mitchell also warned that his newest monster – Judas Messias – is on his way to TNA.
- After Samoa Joe cost Christian Cage a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Title last week, Cage sent AJ Styles and Tomko to “iMPACT!” to annihilate Joe. The fight started in the back and ended up in the ring, where Cage joined in on the brawl and brutally punished The Samoan Submission Machine.
- “Cowboy” James Storm is on a mission to locate his nemesis “The War Machine” Rhino, who Storm claims has “fallen off the wagon”.
- After the mixed-tag team match with Kazarian and Gail Kim vs. Robert Roode and Ms. Brooks, Roode blamed Ms. Brooks for the loss and began to berate her. Kazarian came to Ms. Brooks’ aid and told Roode he doesn’t know how to treat a woman.
