The show starts off with a recap of last week and then Angelina Love’s music hits as we will start tonight off with the Knockouts.
Angelina Love w/Velvet Sky and Kip James vs. ODB
Wow, the greatest entrance in all of wrestling (minus Kip), The Beautiful People. Tenay announces that Taylor Wilde will defend the Knockout Title against Roxxi and Awesome Kong in a Triple Threat Match at Bound For Glory! ODB mocks The Beautiful People’s entrance and as she does Love kicks the middle rope straddling ODB. Love then starts kicking ODB and then mounts and punches away at ODB. Love with a snapmare and then slams ODB into the canvas by her hair repeatedly. Love then whips ODB into the ropes and goes for a clothesline, ODB ducks, Love goes for a back elbow, ODB ducks again, and ODB hits a shoulder block. ODB with a clothesline and now Kip and Velvet distract ODB. That allows Love to throw ODB to the floor. Kip distracts referee, Slick Johnson, allowing The Beautiful People to double team ODB on the floor. Back in the ring Love covers ODB for a two count. Again, Kip and Angelina distract the ref while Velvet chokes ODB from the outside. Love then slams ODB down by the hair into the mat and poses over her. ODB kicks Love in the butt and then hits big chops to Love’s chest. ODB hits a Big Splash into the corner followed by a Fall Away Slam. Velvet has ODB’s flask and takes a sip of it as Kip distracts the referee again. Angelina pushes ODB into the ropes where Velvet spits the liquor into ODB’s eyes allowing Love to hit the Lights Out to get the pinfall.
Winner: Angelina Love via pinfall (Lights Out)
In Jeff Jarrett’s office Jeremy Borash asks Jarrett about Kurt Angle’s comments in the UK over the weekend. Jarrett says there’s going to be repercussions and he’s going out to the ring right now to talk about it.
Back from commercial ODB is in the back with Lauren and Traci Brooks. ODB demands a match against The Beautiful People tonight. Traci tells ODB to find a partner and the match is on. ODB grabs Traci’s chest (luck her) and then tells her she loves “some authority with balls” and smacks her on the butt as she leaves.
They show a video package hyping up Jeff Jarrett’s return to the ring at BFG against Kurt Angle.
“My World” hits and The King of the Mountain is on his way out to the ring with a guitar in one hand and a newspaper in the other. Jeff says that some people are saying that Jeff will regret stepping back in the ring to face Kurt at BFG and that those people don’t know Jeff Jarrett. He says his whole career his back has been up against the wall. Jeff says that when he started TNA people told him he would never succeed, but again he said they didn’t know Jeff Jarrett. He says he’s standing in TNA’s ring 6 years later and TNA has never been as strong as it is today. The fans chant “TNA” now. Jeff says that no one will ever take down TNA. He says that Kurt was over in the UK where he supposed to be promoting TNA, but he made harsh comments about everybody in the locker room and the office. Jeff says that Kurt aired some dirty laundry and if he wants to play then two can play that game. Jeff quotes a few excerpts from Kurt’s interview. Kurt said that his decision, when his contract comes up, will be depending on how he feels about his company. He then says that Kurt called Vince the smartest promoter ever and that no one can break the bond he and Vince McMahon had not even Jeff Jarrett. Jeff says now that they have a match all of a sudden he doesn’t want to be in TNA. Jeff says he also doesn’t understand this father-son bond that Kurt and Vince have all of a sudden, saying that Kurt told him “you freed me from that living hell” when Jeff signed him. Jeff says that when Kurt signed he made some certain comments about his former boss in an interview they did with him, but Jeff didn’t air it because he didn’t feel it was right. Jeff then says its changed and now he’s going to air it. They show an obviously old clip as Kurt is bigger than he is now. He says in the clip that Vince told him that “an Olympic gold medal and a cup of coffee don’t mean sh*t” and that it pissed him off and he wanted to beat the sh*t out of him right there. Kurt then says, “What does he think he’s a genius? He’s got his head up his ass. He doesn’t even know what he’s doing.” He then calls him a piece of crap and an asshole and the next time he sees he’ll beat the hell out of him. Kurt then says that to him he’s dead and he doesn’t mean anything and that he’s going to be kissing his ass two years from then. Wow, just wow. Jeff says in the interview Kurt said that not even he could break that father-son bond between he and Vince, but it looks like he just broke it. Jeff says, “At Bound for Glory I’m going to beat your ass so bad not even Papa Vince will take you back.” That had to be the best work I’ve ever seen. Holy crap. They talked about a legitimate interview that Kurt Angle had and showed an obviously genuine interview that Kurt did when he signed to TNA. I honestly did not see this coming. What a great twist. If this isn’t work then I just don’t know what to say except I cant wait to see what happens next.
Back from commercial JB runs up to Kurt Angle who is just arriving and asks him if he got his voice mail. JB tells Kurt about Jeff showing the clip and Kurt goes crazy about it. Kurt says he’s going to rip Jeff’s head off but JB tells him that Cornette wants to see him in his office. Up next is a Monsters Ball Qualifying Match.
Monster's Ball Qualifying Match
Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) vs. L.A.X. (Homicide & Hernandez)
This should be a great match. LAX are without Hector Guerrero for the first time in a while tonight. Homicide and Alex Shelley will start out the match. They lock up and trade positions until Shelley pushes Homicide into the ropes and goes for a hip toss but Homicide counters into a T-Bone Suplex. Homicide then tags in Hernandez who just flips Shelley backwards followed by a big clothesline from Homicide. Hernandez covers Shelly and gets a two count. Hernandez then locks in a bear hug but Shelley gets out of it by slapping his arms together around Hernandez’s head. Shelley tags in Sabin now. They lock up and Shelley locks in a headlock but Hernandez pushes him off into the ropes and then hits a shoulder block. Shelley comes off the ropes and Hernandez again hits a shoulder block, but then Sabin comes back with a spinning back kick to Hernandez’s gut. Sabin then goes for a hurricanrana but Hernandez counters it into a modified backbreaker for a two count. Hernandez then goes for a big Vertical Suplex but Shelley runs in and leg kicks Hernandez forcing him to drop Sabin. The MCMG then hit double back elbows and goes for a double suplex, but Hernandez counters it by suplexing them both. Hernandez tags in Homicide who whips Sabin into the ropes and hits a big flying back elbow for another two count. Homicide attempts to whip Sabin into the corner but he reverses it and Shelley gets a big enziguri from the outside. Shelley holds Homicide allowing Sabin to hit a big dropkick sending Homicide to the outside. Sabin then follows him outside with a Suicide Dive through the ropes onto Homicide on the outside. Back in the ring Sabin tags in Shelley and they whip Homicide into the corner. Sabin whips Shelley into Homicide hitting a big back elbow, and then Sabin follows with one of his own. They hit big double Basement Dropkicks on Homicide for a two count. Shelley tags back in Sabin and he holds Homicide as Shelley charges. Homicide shoves Shelley back and then reverses Sabin and pushes him into Shelley. Homicide tags in Hernandez who hits big chops on both MCMG and then hits a big back body drop on Sabin followed by a release overhead suplex on Shelley. Hernandez then gorilla presses Sabin but he counters it into a sunset flip attempt, but Hernandez stops that and picks him by his throat. Hernandez hits the Cracker Jack for a two count before Shelley breaks it up. Shelley hits several elbows and but Hernandez hits a big boot and goes for the Border Toss, but Sabin runs over and hits a step up Enziguri off of Shelley’s back. The MCMG then double Superkicks on Hernandez. Homicide runs in and goes for the Gringo Killer on Shelley, but he counters it with knee strikes and sets him for a DDT. Hernandez comes over and Shelley grabs him too. Sabin then comes off the top with a springboard dropkick into Hernandez’s back as Shelley hits a DDT/Flatliner combination at the same time. Great move. Sabin gets a two count on Hernandez. Shelley hits a spinning back kick on Homicide and then goes for the Sliced Bread #2, but Homicide blocks it and hits the Gringo Cutta. Shelley bails out to the outside. Hernandez attempts to dive to the outside with the Super Mex Dive, but Sabin stops him with a big Superkick. Sabin charges at Hernandez but he backdrops to the apron and Sabin lands on his feet. Sabin springboards into a cross body, but Hernandez catches him in midair and turns it into a Sitout Powerbomb for the pinfall. That was a really great match.
Winners: LAX via pinfall (Sitout Powerbomb)
After the match Shelley says its cool but when LAX turn around Shelley flips them off. They turn around and catch him and they argue as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial with have another Rough Cut segment with Roxxi where they discuss the Ladder Hair Match between Roxxi and Gail Kim. They show clips of the medical staff sewing her up. Another as great Rough Cut segment.
Mike Tenay & Don West hype up BFG and then send it to the back where JB is in Cornette’s office with Kurt Angle. Cornette tells Kurt that he’s been fined $25,000 for his comments in the UK Sun. Kurt is pissed and goes looking for Jarrett.
TNA shows another Ka….Suicide promo package. He says he’s a cockroach. The costume looks like a cross between La Parka and Spawn to me.
TNA X-Division Championship
Triple Threat Match
Sheik Abdul Bashir (c) vs. Jimmy Rave w/Lance Rock & Christy Hemme vs. “Showtime” Eric Young
So, we get “Showtime” in the X-Title match instead of Super Eric. Before the match Bashir swings the Title belt around the ring and both Rave and Young bail out of the ring. As the bell rings Bashir and Rave double team Young in the corner. Rave then hits a knee to Bashir’s cut and attempts to send him into a corner, but Bashir reverses it sending Rave to the ring post and to the outside. Young comes back and slams Bashir’s head into the ring post. Bashir then whips Young into the corner but Young nips up and a charging Bashir runs into the corner. Young then locks in a side headlock but Bashir reverses it into a back suplex for a two count. Bashir knees Young in the back repeatedly and then hits a big dropkick to the back of his head for a two count. Now Bashir locks in a sleeper but Young fights to his feet and hits back elbows. Bashir comes back with a Suplex attempt but Young lands on his feet and throws Bashir to the outside. Rave is quickly back in and hits a Tilt-A-Whirl into a facebuster followed by an arm bar. Young is able to reach the ropes but Rave goes for another arm bar. Young counters by flipping over and then hits a jawbreaker. Young attempts to come off the ropes but Bashir trips and then holds him as Rave hits chops. Rave goes for a clothesline but Young is able to escape and Bashir moves. Rave then hits an STO on Bashir. Young with clotheslines on Rave and then a powerslam on Bashir for a two count before Rave breaks it up. Rave whips Young into the corner and goes for a running knee strike, but Young moves and Rave crashes to the floor. Bashir charges at Young and Young gets a boot up followed by a scoop slam. Young then climbs to the top and attempts a Moonsault, but Bashir moves and then hits that big WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) for the pinfall to retain his title. Solid three way.
Winner & STILL X-Champ: Bashir via pinfall (WMD)
After the match Bashir instructs referee, Shane Sewell (the one that’s fought with Bashir) to raise his hand. Afterward they stare down each other and Bashir draws back at him to make Sewell flinch.
In the back JB is with Christian, AJ Styles, and Jay Lethal. JB asks Christian if he’s ready. Christian says to give Jay the spotlight and thanks AJ & Christian for the chance to “ride with the big dogs.” Jay says that last week he lost to Booker T., but he took him to the limits. He says he learns from his mistakes and he’s going to take out a legend. AJ asks Christian if they’re cool and Christian responds with, “AJ, I’m the champ. I’m always cool.” AJ says he’ll take it and they walk off.
Team 3D & Booker T. w/Sharmell vs. “Instant Classic” Christian Cage, “Phenomenal” AJ Styles, & “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal
Booker and Jay start the match off and lockup in the corner. Booker attempts to punch Lethal but Booker counters and punches at him. Booker comes back with an eye poke and then punches away at Jay. Booker attempts an Irish Whip but Lethal counters it and then hits his hip toss into a handspring basement dropkick combination for a one count. Booker fights back and tags in Brother Ray. Ray beats down Lethal as we go to commercial. Back from commercial Devon knees Christian and tags in Booker. Christian ducks a clothesline and chops Booker, and then tags in AJ. He whips Booker into the corner and then hits a big Flying forearm in the corner and tags in Lethal. AJ holds Booker as Lethal comes off the top rope with a Flying Axe Handle. Lethal chops Booker and then Booker fights back with a knee strike and whips him into the corner. Lethal with elbows to Team 3D and a big boot to Booker, but Team 3D trips Lethal and low blow him into the ring post. Booker hits a huge Superkick on Lethal and gets a two count out of it. Booker tags in Devon and he hits a headbutt and then chokes Lethal. Devon with a big right hand on Jay and whips him into the ropes and hits a Flying Corkscrew Elbow for another two count. Devon locks in a sleeper hold and Jay fights to his feet and hits elbows, but Devon slams him down and tags in Brother Ray. Ray hits a elbow and then elbow drops Lethal’s crotch as the ref was distracted. Devon tagged back in attempts to whip Lethal into the corner but he reverses it. Lethal charges at Devon but he gets a boot up. Devon goes for a clothesline but Lethal ducks and hits an Enziguri. Both men are down now. Lethal is able to tag in Christian as Devon tags in Ray. Christian with lefts and rights to 3D and Booker, but Ray hits a Big Boot on Christian. 3D whips Christian into the ropes but he comes back with a double clothesline!

Booker punches Christian in the back of the head and gets a waistlock, but Christian reverses it and rolls through into a rollup. Ray distracts the referee as AJ springboards off the top rope with Flying Forearm, but Ray moves and AJ nails Christian! That allows Booker to roll Christian up for the pinfall victory! That was another really good match.
Winners: Team 3D and Booker T. via pinfall (rollup)
After the match AJ helps Christian up but Christian is pissed as we go to commercial.
In the back Kurt Angle kicks down Jeff Jarrett’s door as security attempts to hold him back. Jeff isn’t in the room and Kurt says when he finds Jeff he’s going to stick ‘that money’ up Jarrett’s ass.
They show a interview that Tenay had with Samoa Joe and Sting earlier. Sting says that in 2001 wrestling ended in a bad way when WCW went out of business. Sting says that when he got a call from Jeff Jarrett 5 years later he came back because he saw a bunch of guys that were going to take wrestling into the future, but when he got to know some of them they just don’t have respect. Joe asks Sting why someone that has accomplished as much as Sting has is worried about young guys like him and AJ, because they’re the future? Joe says that the guys that are the future are more apparent to the guys that are the past. Sting says his problem is solely the disrespect. He asks why anyone would ever try to injure a legend like AJ and Joe tried. Joe says that they do the same thing to them. Sting talks about he and Flair trading the belt and talks about his mentors. Joe says that Sting continues to preach about how great the fans are yet he doesn’t ever show up. Joe says that when Impact comes on its Samoa Joe busting his ass not Sting. Sting asks Joe if he thinks he’s just been coasting along the last 4 years and Joe laughs. Sting says Joe isn’t going to disrespect him ever. Joe says that he does respect what Sting was. He says that he did exactly what Sting did, when the opportunity rose, but he just handles things a little differently. He knocks you off your pedestal and makes sure you never get back up. Sting says that enough has been said and he’s tired of talking and its time to walk that aisle. Joe says that the only reason he doesn’t have his hands around Sting’s throat right then is because he wants to prove that he does have a few of those qualities Sting claims he doesn’t. Joe then says at BFG he will certainly walk that aisle but when he’s done with Sting he wont walk back.
In the back Lauren is with Abyss and Matt Morgan. Abyss laughs and says Lauren is very pretty. Abyss says an Asylum is for crazy people and that at BFG no weapons will be involved it’ll just be wrestling. Matt says he’ll handle the weapons. Morgan says that 3D has lost their titles 20 times so that makes them 20 time losers. Morgan says that at BFG they’ll prove size does matter.
The TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money Inc. are on their way to the ring along with Jacqueline (who is wearing a very interesting shirt tonight). Storm has beer bottles decorating his title belt now. Only Storm could pull that one off. Robert Roode grabs the mic says that they are doing very well, but there is a few people in TNA aren’t like Salinas and Hector Guerrero. Roode says that because of them Hector Guerrero’s “old latino ass” is back in the announce booth where he belongs. He says that from now on they are offering an open invitation to any tag team in TNA or any other promotion in the world. Team 3D’s music immediately hits and they make their way to the stage. Devon starts to talk but before he can finish his sentence Abyss’ music his and he and Matt Morgan come out. Morgan starts to talk but then LAX’s music hits and they come out to the ring. Homicide begins to talk when Jim Cornette comes out. Cornette actually says “hold on before this all blows up like a meth lab.” Another classic one liner from Cornette. Cornette says at BFG that the 3-Way Monsters Ball Tag Team Titles #1 Contenders Match has just become a 4-Way Monsters Ball Match for the Tag Titles! Wow, that’ll be awesome. I believe this is not only the first Tag Team Monsters Ball, but it’s the first Monsters Ball for a title.
In the back The Beautiful People are on their way to the ring with Kip James.
The Beautiful People (Velvet Sky & Angelina Love) w/Kip James vs. ODB & Rhaka Khan
ODB’s mystery partner is the Scott Steiner’s ‘freak’, Rhaka Khan. She licks her lips as we go to commercials. Velvet Sky kicks the match off by attempting to attack ODB from behind but she nails her with an elbow and then starts punching her in the head repeatedly. ODB tags in Rhaka Khan and Velvet quickly bails out of the ring. Rhaka pulls Love & Sky into the ring by their hair and then hits a double clothesline on them. Kip James gets in the ring and gets in Khan’s face distracting her, allowing Velvet to come in from behind. Khan stops her, though, and hits a big kick followed by a modified Axe Kick. Khan tags in ODB and chokes Velvet in the corner with her long leg. ODB then whips Velvet into the rope but she reverses it and Love trips ODB. Sky then starts kicking and punching ODB. Sky tags in Love and they hit a double elbow drop. Love rakes at ODB’s nose and face and then pulls ODB’s hair. Love tags Sky back in and hits a kick to ODb’s gut. Sky gets a two count on ODB and then mounts her and chokes her. Love tagged back in and they kick ODB in the corner and choke her. Sky & Love whip ODB into the ropes and go for a double clothesline, but ODB ducks and hits a kick to Sky and clothesline on Love. ODB tags in Khan who hits clotheslines on Sky and Love and then hits big kicks to them both. Khan then hits a weird Reverse DDT into a Guillotine Leg Drop move (that’s the only way I can think to describe it) for the pin.
Winners: ODB and Rhaka Khan via pinfall
After the match The Beautiful People and Kip James attack ODB & Khan. Rhino’s music hits and he runs out and makes the save. So I guess Rhino is the official Knockouts savior.
Mick Foley’s TNA Debut
Mick’s new theme music is pretty generic as he comes down to the ring with a mic in hand. The Impact Zone is going nuts as they chant “Foley!” Mick says that it is an honor to “stand in a ring where Kute Kip just stood.” Mick laughs and says that this is seriously one of the biggest nights in his career. Mick thanks the fans and the “Foley” chant starts back up. Foley thanks Jeff Jarrett for bringing him in and then thanks Vince McMahon for making it possible. The fans boo the hell out of that. Mick thanks Vince for all the great opportunities he gave him, but for also making his decision to leave WWE an easy. Ouch, that one hurt. Before Mick can say anything /* Kurt Angle’s music hits and the pissed off Gold Medalist power walks to the ring. Mick cracks another joke about Vince but Kurt doesn’t look amused. Kurt says that Jeff Jarrett pissed him off. Kurt says that last week Jarrett called Mick the greatest acquisition in TNA history and that Jarrett is “full of sh*t!” and so are all the fans for buying into it. Kurt says that 2 weeks ago that Jeff touched a nerve by saying that Kurt lost everything. Kurt takes an extremely low blow by saying that Kurt wasn’t the only one to lose a wife. That is actually bordering on tasteless. Kurt’s bottom lip was actually quivering as he said it. Kurt then asks Mick what he ever did. He says that he is the greatest TNA acquisition ever. Mick stops him and says that he is not going to listen to Kurt belittled the efforts of guys like Samoa Joe and AJ Styles. Mick says that Kurt is the main reason that he came to TNA, yeah he didn’t like having a millionaire screaming at him in his ear piece every week, but the plus to that job was getting to call some amazing wrestlers in some amazing matches up close. He says that he got to see great matches between Edge and The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho, and even Triple-H and John Cena, but seeing them made him think about Kurt Angle. Because Kurt had torn the house down with all those guys and defeated them all too. Foley agrees with Kurt being the greatest acquisition in TNA history and even says that Kurt may be the greatest performer in the business ever. He says that he thinks he is but doesn’t know, and the way he can know is by seeing up close. Kurt then says that Don West is replaceable and he can take his place. Foley says that he isn’t there for that, he’s there to be the Enforcer in Jeff and Kurt’s match! Kurt goes nuts when he hears this. Foley then ends it with, “Kurt, read my lips. It’s true, it’s damn true!” Things have gotten even more interesting. Final Thoughts
Man, has TNA really picked it up going into Bound for Glory. This week was the best Impact in a long time in my opinion. Verging on an A+ from me but not quite there. Really good matches (one of which was a Title match) and some really great storyline continuation and promos. Since next week is the final stop before BFG it should be really interesting.
The opening match was a good Knockouts singles match but the interference from Kip, Velvet, etc. gets old quick.
Jeff's promo once again this week was very passionate and very good. You can tell he legitimately didn't like Kurt's comments over the weekend about TNA, and actually showing that old footage was crazy to me. If it turns out that his actual interview was a work then mark Jeff down as a freaking genius because they are really starting to suck me in with this. It's always a great storyline when you're going "man, he really seemed pissed. That had to be legit."
The MCMG vs. LAX match was a really good tag match, but it only makes you think how great of a match they could have on a PPV. We really need to see an LAX/MCMG feud. I'm really excited about the Tag Monsters Ball because either there will be new Tag Champs or Beer Money will be put over big time. Hopefully Abyss gets in on the Weapons action, though, because he has always been a highlight of Monsters Ball.
The X-Division three-way was really good and it's always great to see a title match on Impact. Bashir is a good heel champion but I still would love to see Creed get a shot to run with the title. The Steel Asylum is going to give the X-Division a chance to get a nice recharge since it's been a little lackluster since the World X-Cup ended, and seeing who is rumored to be this new Suicide character could he make his 'debut' during the Steel Asylum match? hmmmm.
The sitdown interview with Joe and Sting was decent but I'd rather see them just beat each others brains in since we've already heard everything they've said.
The 6-Man Tag was great but it should've been the Main Event tonight. They continue to put Jay Lethal over as a star on the rise and the AJ/Christian beef continues to heat up.
The Knockouts Tag was another good match and Rhaka Khan is legit a freak. That was are first real chance to see her wrestle and she looked decent. Still need to see more of her. That finisher was really cool.
Mick's debut was a memorable one. Great promo from him as you would expect but the Kurt Angle involvement was crazy. That line about Jeff's wife really caught me off guard and to be honest it kindof looked like Kurt had a hard time saying it. This feud has gotten extremely personal and just continues to get better. Throwing Mick into this feud as the Enforcer (just like Angle was in his first time in a TNA ring in Jeff Jarrett & Sting's Title match a few years back at BFG) is another nice twist and answers my question from last week on what his involvement will be.
