There are several major news items to report from Thursday’s “iMPACT!” broadcast on SpikeTV as TNA Wrestling prepares for Sunday’s “Genesis” Pay-Per-View event!
- Who is Sting’s tag team partner for the huge tag team main event this Sunday night? It’s not Scott Hall, who told his former tag team partner Kevin Nash on Thursday night that he wasn’t Sting’s choice. Nash and Kurt Angle were sure it was Hall, but Nash learned the truth after an in-ring reunion between the two controversial stars. Now, the mystery deepens as to who will team with Sting this Sunday night.
- Speaking of controversy, the Christian Cage vs. Kaz “Fight For The Right” tournament final was thrown out by Matt Morgan after interference by Tomko and AJ Styles, not to mention the fact that Cage used a ladder in the match. Morgran (perhaps speaking on authority from TNA management director Jim Cornette) announced that the tournament final rematch will take place this Sunday on Pay-Per-View as it will be Cage vs. Kaz in a Ladder Match!
- New matches have been added to Sunday’s Pay-Per-View event, with AJ Styles and Tomko defending the TNA World Tag Team Championship against The Steiner Brothers and “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal putting the X Division Championship on the line against “The Guru” Sonjay Dutt.
- Speaking of Styles/Tomko and The Steiner Brothers, AJ faced off against Scott Steiner in a takedown challenge on Thursday’s broadcast. However, both Tomko and Rick Steiner got involved, leading to a brawl between both teams before Sunday’s title match.
- Also on the broadcast, Team 3D defeated the team of Lethal and Abyss following interference by Abyss’ opponent this Sunday, Black Reign. Following the bout, Team 3D assaulted Jay Lethal by beating him with belts in their attempts to further humiliate the X Division, but the Motor City Machineguns came to Lethal’s rescue.
- In six-man action, it was Sting, Samoa Joe and Eric Young defeating the team of TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle, “Cowboy” James Storm and Robert Roode!
