Just 3 days away from TNA's biggest PPV or the year, "Impact Wrestling," opens up with highlights from last week's show and the revelation of Hogan agreeing to give the company back to Dixie Carter if Sting wins at BFG. Also, the Roode-Angle-Fortune drama is featured.
"Earlier Today" Sting and Hogan arrived, separately, and tonight they will have a contract signing.
Cut to the arena the World Champion, Kurt Angle, makes his way down to the ring. Angle calls Roode out so they can have one last "talk" before their Main Event showdown at BFG. Roode doesn't make the champ wait very long either.
Roode comes down to the ring, alone. A "Next World Champ" chant erupts as Roode gets in the ring and then Angle congratulates on Roode getting through his matches with Fortune. Angle admits he did it to break Roode down mentally and physically and he passed the test...except for the last match. Angle says he "helped you out a little bit." Angle says he's not Kazarian, AJ, or Storm... he's Kurt Angle the greatest wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots. Angle says what Roode did to get to this match is nothing compared to what Angle has done in his career. Angle runs down his accomplishments in wrestling and says he's dominated TNA on his own. Angle says he has to prove he's the best everytime he's in the ring, and at BFG he'll prove to all the idiots out there that he is the greatest wrestler of all time.
Angle offers a handshake but Roode refuses it and grabs his own microphone. Roode says they both know what it takes to be a champion, it takes heart. Roode says they could go to BFG and tear the house down and beat the hell out of each other, but at the end of the night the man with the bigger heart will survive. Roode says in 1996 Angle had the heart to overcome a broken neck and win the Gold Medal. He says Angle has walked into the ring his entire career and had the bigger heart. He calls Angle a "freaking machine" and then says at BFG all he wants to do is find out who has the bigger heart. Roode asks who has the heart to take TNA to the next level. He says at BFG he suggests no games, no Immortal or no Fortune, just Roode vs. Angle for the belt to see who the better wrestler is. Angle thinks about it for a second and then agrees!
Angle and Roode shake hands and then stare each other down before Angle leaves the ring.
Angle stops in the entranceway and says he forgot something. Angle says Hogan have booked Roode in another tune-up match tonight. Tonight it will be Bobby Roode vs. Gunner...and Jeff Jarrett in a Handicap Match!
In the back Jerry Lynn and Daniels are brawling with AJ & RVD!

-----------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK---------------------------------------"Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe vs. "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan
Morgan attacks Joe at the bell but Joe rakes his eyes and starts beating on Morgan in the corner.

Crimson limps down to the ring with a steel chair and nails Joe with it! Joe bails out to the floor as Crimson swings it at Joe. Crimson looks like he's wearing a walking boot. Joe grabs a microphone and says everytime one of them starts something and Joe tries to finish it, the other runs out to magically save their ass. Joe says he knows why because Crimson and Morgan are scared of each other and scared to fight each other so they get together like a couple of bitches and come after the alpha ass kicker. Joe suggests a Triple Threat at BFG! Crimson and Morgan look at each other as Joe says the choice is theirs and he says they can be an alpha male...or friends (mockingly).
Back from the break Mexican America is in the ring. Hernandez says they have a couple of wannabe tough guys, who he calls "Mohawk midgets," and he says if they want to do this thing then they need to come to the ring and they can do it "Mexican Prison style." Hernandez says when Mexican America is done with Ink, Inc. they'll be ironing his socks, holding his pockets, and he'll be pimping them both out for two cups of soup and a honey bun (and the line of the night goes to Hernandez). Ink, Inc. comes down to the ring microphone in hand.
Neal says they came to the ring to ask them a question. He says they come out week after week to bitch about America but asks don't they live here? Neal tells Anarquia to show every one that sweet tattoo they gave him. Moore says he has an idea that will make the American fans happy and Ink, Inc. happy. Anarquia asks what he's talking about and Moore says, "get the hell out." Mexican America jumps them and the beat down has commenced.

Ink, Inc. hits a Double Suplex on Anarquia! Ink, Inc. tries to show the tattoo they gave Anarquia but Hernandez pulls him to safety.
Neal tells Mexican America to bring the girls if they want because they have some backup too and points to Christina.
By the way Hernandez was sporting a new tattoo on his stomach that had the letters "CTM"...if you speak Spanish I'm sure you know what that refers to, and it's also the name of Hernandez's new finisher.

After the match Kendrick raises the belt up over Aries and then points at the big BFG logo on the screen.
Back from commercials the gorgeous Velvet Sky lets the pigeons loose and comes down to the ring. The even more gorgeous Mickie James walks down to the ring as well. When I die I want to be resurrected as Mickie's jeans, good lord. Winter follows Mickie accompanied by Angelina. Madison comes out with Karen Jarrett and Traci Brooks. Karen says she expects every one of the girls out there to make her proud at BFG because she had to fight just to get them put on the card because nobody wants them on the card. Karen screams at the fans to shut up who are booing her. Karen says BFG is a night of prestige, not for the street walking hoes. She says she's talking mainly to Velvet Sky. Velvet snatches the microphone from Karen and says she's sick of Karen trashing her. Karen says she's not even close to having enough. Karen says when she's had enough SHE will say it's enough. Karen says she's class and Velvet is trash. Karen says she's what every woman wants to be and what every man wants. She says the crowd Velvet draws are pathetic losers and scum. Velvet says maybe Karen is right but maybe not and she says Karen WILL respect her because she will be the next Knockouts Champion. Karen says that will happen over her dead body. Velvet shoves Karen and Traci was kneeling down behind her causing Karen to fall on her ass. Madison attacks Velvet and Winter helps! Mickie jumps Winters and Angelina jumps on Mickie! Mickie tosses Angelina out to the floor! The four Knockouts that will wrestle at BFG are now brawling in the ring! CAT FIGHT! Angelina rolls back in along with security to separate them. Karen tells Traci she will pay for what she did.
In the back Bully Ray says who better to be a Special Enforcer for a match than him. He will be Special Enforcer to Mr. Anderson vs. Gunner. Ray warns Anderson not to piss him off tonight because he may not make it to Philly.
In the back AJ Styles is leaving the arena and is talking trash about Daniels. He says now their wives aren't talking and their kids aren't playing together all because Daniels HAD to have that last match. AJ says Daniels knows him and he knows AJ doesn't quit so he wants an I Quit Match now. AJ says Daniels needs ask Tommy Dreamer about I Quit Matches because last he remembers he almost lost an eye. AJ puts his luggage in his truck and then turns around into a right hand from Daniels! Daniels slams AJ into a diesel truck nearby and screams at AJ to "talk your shit now AJ!" Daniels chokes AJ with a cable and says he could end him right now if he wanted to but he won't because he wants the world to hear him quit on Sunday. He slaps AJ and then walks away. "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner vs. Mr. Anderson

Anderson is over in Knoxville. Ray talks trash to Anderson as he gets in the ring. Steiner attacks Anderson at the bell and whips him into the ropes and connects with a Steinerline.

Abyss goes to check on Steiner but Ray grabs him by the arm and tells him to stop screwing up. The fans chant "Black Hole Slam" as Immortal continues to berate Abyss. Abyss grabs Ray by the throat! Immortal jumps Abyss and beats the ever loving hell out of him. Ray pulls out a table and sets it up in the ring as Gunner chokes Abyss with the chain. Anderson runs back down and helps Abyss! Ray takes Anderson out with a clothesline. Ray then Bully Bombs Anderson through the table! Bully screams "3 days" at Anderson.
In the back Angle approaches James Storm and Storm wants to know what he wants. Angle says Storm has had a whole week to think about how he could have beaten Bobby Roode if it wasn't for Kurt. Storm says the only thing he's been thinking about is how Kurt cost him the match by ramming his head into the steps. Kurt says he did that but it was his buddy who took advantage of him and pinned him. Storm cuts him off and he says he knows how Kurt plays these games and he knows Bobby didn't have a clue about what Kurt did. Storm says the only reason he's not whooping his ass right now is out of respect for Bobby because he's going to do it at BFG. Angle mocks Bobby saying he had no idea that he attacked Storm. Angle sarcastically says "that's great" and walks away. Storm punches the table and looks in the mirror.
Jarrett talks about the Handicap Match with Roode and he says Bobby won't make it out alive tonight.
Tenay & Taz run down the card for BFG.
Yet ANOTHER stellar video package hyping up Bobby Roode is shown. This may have been the best one. He talks about how the fans can identify with him because he's a hard working guy. Roode says since he's been in TNA there have been so many guys who have come and gone as images of Booker T, Kevin Nash, and Mick Foley are shown. Roode says it's time for a chance to bring a fresh face into the top spot. He says this will be a new chapter in his career and now it's time to move forward in his career to gain something he's wanted his entire career.
Now we switch gears as the focus turns to Kurt Angle. Angle says he waited 2 years to get the World Title back and he wants to hang on it more than anything. He says Roode doesn't have the experience that Angle has and he's holding the world on his shoulders with all the pressure. Roode is shown training and he says preparing for a guy like Kurt Angle is someone he's never had to prepare for. Angle says you can't expect Roode to face him for the first time and win it the first time. He suggests that if they have 100 matches Roode might win one. Roode says at BFG he will walk out the World Heavyweight Champion.
Over the past week it's been reported that Kevin Sullivan was behind all of those video packages hyping Bobby Roode. That needs to be his job 100% of the time. Those videos have been amazing.
-----------------------------------COMMERCIAL BREAK---------------------------------------Handicap Match
Bobby Roode vs. Jeff Jarrett & Gunner w/Karen Jarrett

Jarrett hits Storm with the AAA Title. Jarrett and Ray hold Roode up and Roode gets ready to hit him but Jeff Hardy's music hits!
Jeff Hardy runs down to the ring and goes on the attack as Kurt bails! Jeff goes nuts on Ray! Jeff hits the Twist of Fate on Jarrett! The crowd is going nuts! Jeff helps Roode up and Beer Money looks shocked. Jeff says something to Roode and offers him a handshake as the fans chant "Hardy." Storm slaps Hardy's hand away.

Every time Hardy tries to leave the ring Storm cuts him off and gets in his face. Beer Money then raises Hardy's arms together and Storm shakes his hand! Beer Money hugs Hardy and then all 3 pose on the ropes.
Back from the break Jeff Hardy says he helped out the next World Champion tonight but Jeff Jarrett interrupts him and says he's going to throw up hearing Hardy talking about appologzing. Jarrett says every step of the way him and Hardy have had a friendship but nobody knows about that. Jarrett says Hardy is out of chances and he is NOT coming back. He says Hardy better not show up or even step foot in the state of Pennsylvania. Hardy starts walk away but Jarrett stops him and asks him where the hell he thinks he's going. Hardy says he's going to buy his ticket for BFG! He walks away and Jarrett looks like someone just kicked his puppy.
JB introduces Sting and Hogan to the ring for the contract signing. Sting and Hogan sit down at the table and Sting signs the contract. Hogan looks at the contract and signs it as a "Hogan sucks" chant breaks out. Hogan pushes the table over and then he says Sting has been dancing around him for over 30 years. He says they had a brief encounter but Sting was thrilled when it was over. Hogan says over all these years Sting could have found but now in the twilight of his career when he's trying to help TNA out now Sting wants to come after him. Hogan says Sting wanted Hulk Hogan so he's got the real Hulk Hogan now. Hogan says his wrestling career is over but for Sting to insult him and embarrass him the way he has this will be the fight of Sting's life. Hogan says there will be no interference or no games, it will just be Sting vs. Hogan. Hogan offers a handshake and Sting accepts it.
Hogan says it will be Sting vs. Hogan, nobody else, but then Eric Bischoff walks out. Bischoff says they have one more piece of business. Sting laid his hands on Bischoff so if there is anything left after Hogan gets done with him then Bischoff will kick his ass. While Sting is looking at Bischoff, Hogan hits him with a chair! Hogan hits Sting with chops and right hands and then chokes him in the corner. Hogan talks trash to Sting as he continues to beat on him and Bischoff watches on.
Tonight was a little underwhelming for the most part.
I loved the opening segment with Angle and Roode and we can only hope they're serious about no screwyness in the BFG match. I love that Angle was still playing mind games, especially with Storm. Roode looks strong going into BFG with the win over both Gunner & Jarrett. He was crazy fired up. I'm not too big on Hardy getting involved but he was really fired up as well. Haven't seen Hardy like that in awhile.
Joe-Morgan was just there. That 3-Way won't be anything special at all.
Anderson-Steiner was just there as well.
X-Division Tag was great and Kendrick looks good going into BFG.
AJ/RVD vs. Daniels/Lynn was a great match and AJ punking Daniels out was cool and then Daniels got his heat back by killing AJ in the back.
The Knockouts stuff was pretty bad other than how they all looked. I fully expect Velvet to walk out champion.
It was cool to see Christina Von Eerie finally officially in TNA. Too bad that match will be on the Pre-Show.
The Hogan-Sting stuff didn't do anything for me but let's face it the whole feud has done nothing for me.
The best thing about the show to me was the Roode/Angle vignette again, those things have been so awesome.
