There are several major news items from Thursday's "iMPACT!" broadcast on SpikeTV, including big news on Sting, Matt Morgan, Scott Steiner and more!
- Thie big news coming out of Thursday's broadcast is that the "Lethal Lockdown" match at the Pay-Per-View is now 5-on-5! Matt Morgan allowed Team Tomko to add "Cowboy" James Storm to their team, while Morgan tricked everyone and revealed he was the fifth member of Team Cage as "iMPACT!" went off the air! Obviously, TNA Management Director Jim Cornette can't be please with Morgan's plan!
- In the main event, "The Icon" Sting defeated "Cowboy" James Storm after Morgan helped Sting by tossing him a baseball bat (following some underhanded tactics by Storm and Jacqueline).
- Also on the broadcast, TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle discussed his upcoming World Title match against Samoa Joe - but Angle was interrupted by "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner, who told Angle he was cashing in on his "Fight For The Right" World Title shot and wanted the winner of Angle vs. Joe at May's Sacrifice Pay-Per-View!
- Shark Boy qualified for the X Division Xscape Match at Lockdown by beating Elix Skipper on Thursday's broadcast.
- Team 3D beat Christian Cage and Rhino by disqualification after Rhino gored the referee...leading to Jim Cornette making the call!
- Traci Brooks got revenge on Payton Banks by beating her in singles action! Prior to the bout, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky confronted Traci in a pre-match interview. Following the bout, Velvet and Angelina hit the ring - as did several more TNA Knockouts as things go out of control. However, this led to Sharmell coming out to clear house of all the females - a move Booker T obviously didn't approve of.
- In a three-way tag team bout, number-one contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championship The Latin American Xchange defeated The Motor City Machineguns and Black Reign/Rellik. Following the match, Super Eric hit the ring to take down Black Reign and Rellik!
- Also on the broadcast, Mike Tenay had an exclusive sitdown interview with TNA Women's Champ Awesome Kong and her manager Raisha Saeed, more footage of Jay Lethal and SoCal Val's date aired, plus additional vide of Samoa Joe training in California for his upcoming Lockdown World Title shot!
