TNA Championship Series 1st Round Match
“The Boss” Bobby Lashley w/Kristal Marshall vs. “The Monster” Abyss
They are obviously playing off of College Football’s BCS tonight with this tournament (by the way, my Alabama Crimson Tide are still in the hunt for the BCS crown! Roll Tide!). This is a first ever meeting between these two. Lashley charges across the ring and barrels into the beast that is Abyss with a Shoulder Block but he just bounces off! Lashley comes back with a clothesline attempt but Abyss still doesn’t go down. Abyss comes off the ropes now and Lashley shows his athleticism as he leapfrogs the near 7-footer. Lashley then kicks Abyss in the gut and comes off the ropes again only to eat a Big Boot from Abyss! Abyss goes for the Corner Splash but Lashley moves and starts throwing strikes at Abyss in the corner. The referee pulls Lashley away which allows Abyss time to recover and comeback with a big clothesline on the former ECW Champion. Abyss chokes Lashley on the middle rope and then throws a big right hand at him.

Abyss then grabs Lashley feet and drags him out too. Abyss with a big right hand to Lashley and then Kristal comes over to stop Abyss, but Abyss reared back to throw another punch and accidentally caught Kristal in the face with his elbow! Kristal reaches down at her ankle as well. Abyss rolls Lashley into the ring as the referee checks on Kristal. Abyss is trying to explain that he didn’t mean to hit her and when he turns around he eats a big Spear from Lashley! Lashley then locks the Dragon Sleeper in and Abyss taps!
Winner: Lashley via submission (Dragon Sleeper)
After the match Kristal leaps to her feet and starts jumping around celebrating her husband’s win as she was obviously not hurt.
JB is in Foley’s with him and is trying to talk Mick into believing Hogan coming to TNA isn’t a bad thing. JB reminds Mick that he came to TNA to try and help TNA become the #1 wrestling company in the world and he says Hogan coming does that. Mick questions why it was done so secretly behind his back. Mick is pissed that Bubba The Love Sponge knew about Hogan coming before he did. JB asks him to get past it and Foley says this whole thing stinks. Foley says he knows about the backstabbing and politics in wrestling and he says Kurt Angle knows that as well so he is going to talk to him.

In the back JB is with EY and Nash. Nash makes fun of JB about having a ‘big man fetish’ and then EY says TNA not putting his belt in the TCS is the type of discrimination he faces. EY says Americans attempting to maul each other on Thanksgiving is funny. He says greed is the real American tradition, not football. EY again says that his title will not be defending on American soil or against an American wrestler. He says who he’ll face, where he’ll face them, and when he’ll face them.
In the back Foley is on the phone with someone talking about Dixie and Hogan when we hear someone screaming. It’s Steiner screaming at the wardrobe lady about wanting her to make more Main Event Mafia stuff but she refuses to. Foley says that Kurt alluded toward MEM being dead but Steiner says he didn’t exactly say it was dead and as long as he’s there the Mafia lives. Foley asks Steiner what he can tell him about Hogan. Steiner says he didn’t date him so he doesn’t know anything personal about him. He then says he was in the nWo with Hogan and they were a ‘band of thieves.’ He then asks Foley who the smartest guy he knows is and Foley says a name that’s bleeped out. He says that person came up with Ron Simmons’ “damn” gimmick and Steiner says Hogan is 10 times smarter. Steiner says the young guys have no idea what’s coming. Foley asks him he thinks Hogan is bringing with him. Steiner says he’s not Nostradamus and he can’t see into the future so he has no idea. Steiner says that if Nash told him that someone was coming with Hogan then it’s true because “Kevin doesn’t lie.” The wardrobe lady interrupts him and asks Steiner if he really wants her to ‘do it’ just like he has it drawn up because Mafia only has one F in it. Steiner tells her to put her F where the sun don’t shine.
In the back Foley approaches Nash and Young. Foley says he can’t get Nash his money back from the suspension. Foley still wants to know what Nash knows but he says Virgil is coming in. He laughs and says no that’s not true. He then says he’s pretty sure it’s the Disciple but then laughs and says that’s not it either. Nash cracks another joke about Scott Hall this time but Foley says it’s not funny. Nash says between him and Foley if Brian Knobs comes in he’s quitting and EY says he will too. Nash says as soon as Hogan gives him more info he’ll pass it along.

He starts off by saying that he’s concerned about Sting and wants him to call him, but then Daniels music interrupts AJ and he makes his way out to the ring. Daniels says he’s thrilled that he and Sting are such good things but he wanders if Sting realizes that AJ’s friendship costs more than anything /*. Daniels says if anyone knows that it’s him. He says he’s been a better friend to AJ than he’s ever been to Daniels. He says all the years that they trained together and became like brothers AJ is now the World Champion but where did that get him. He says he never was given the shots that AJ was and when he lost his job in TNA and he was gone for 16 months AJ wasn’t around. Daniels says all the power and stroke that AJ has in TNA and he couldn’t make one call and help Daniels get his job back. AJ claims he tried but Daniels says it doesn’t matter anymore because he’s back and when he finally got his shot at Turning Point he had Joe beat, but AJ stabbed him in the back and stole his only chance at greatness. The fans chant for Daniels to shut the hell up so Daniels turns to them and mockingly says they want him to shutup because he’s telling the truth. Daniels says AJ knew that Daniels was better than him and that’s why he wanted to be his best friend because he didn’t want Daniels to be his worst enemy. Daniels says it’s too late now and he’s been in the business for too long to allow AJ’s friendship to hold him down. He says they are enemies now and now he can go home and tell his wife & kids that ‘Uncle Chris is sorry but somebody has got to put daddy in his place.’ AJ says he’s not going to tell his kids anything because when they grow up they will know what Daniels is all about and at Final Resolution Daniels will find out what AJ is all about!
