Report by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
Let’s start off by wishing the editor of WrestleView, Mr. Muffin Man himself Adam Martin, a very Roll Tide birthday!
Impact opens up with highlights from last week and then Eric Young makes his way down to the ring. EY says that in three days it will be he and MVP one-on-one in the biggest match of EY’s life. He says that he has something to say to MVP so he and his “two little buddies” should come on down.
MVP walks out along with his boys and says EY has his undivided attention. EY says he knows there is no way “big mouth and muscles” are going to keep their noses out of EY and MVP’s business at Slammiversary. MVP asks if EY is suggesting that he needs help to beat him and reminds EY that he is a world class athlete and “half man, half amazing.” He says as much as EY thinks he can beat MVP, he can’t and he will take the belt from him. EY says it is time for MVP to show him the respect he’s earned and all he is asking for is one simple request: a fair fight at Slammiversary. MVP says as much as he would like to guarantee that to EY, his brother Kenny King sometimes has “emotional outbursts” and there are no guarantees in life. EY says he isn’t talking to MVP wrestler to wrestler, he’s talking to him man to man right now. He says if a bigger, better man wants to take the belt from him then so be it but getting screwed over and attacked from behind isn’t wrestling, it’s garbage. EY says he is willing to do absolutely anything to insure that doesn’t happen.
MVP asks if he really just said that he would do anything and EY says he didn’t stutter. MVP says he isn’t unreasonable so he is willing to grant EY his “fair fight” and he will let EY pick the stipulation for their match, but EY has to earn that opportunity tonight by defeating he, Lashley, and King all tonight. King says that EY is a loser and couldn’t beat two of them let alone all three. EY says he won’t guarantee that he will beat all three of them or even two but he will guarantee that he will damn sure try. King says EY can’t beat two of them let alone three again and finally MVP agrees to make the deal that if EY beats just two of them tonight then EY can earn the stipulation. He calls it a no-win situation for EY and EY asks MVP if he knows how many times EY has heard that something was a “no-win situation” for him. EY says maybe he shouldn’t be able to beat two of them but people also said he shouldn’t be World Champion but he is! EY says MVP isn’t man enough to take the belt from him. MVP laughs and introduces EY’s first opponent for the night, Lashley.
“Showtime” Eric Young vs. Bobby Lashley
As Lashley climbs on the apron EY slides through his legs and pulls him off the apron face first on the apron. EY punches Lashley repeatedly in the head and then tosses him back in the ring. Lashley knees EY as he gets in the ring and lays into him with vicious elbows and shoulder blocks in the corner. Lashley lifts EY in the air and tosses him in the air with a backdrop. Lashley goes for an elbow drop but EY rolls out of the way and lays into Lashley with strikes. EY floats over a charging Lashley and connects with a Flying Forearm for a nearfall. EY slams Lashley into each of the turnbuckles. He attempts to whip Lashley into the corner but Lashley reverses it and EY flips over the top rope to the apron. EY hits Lashley with a shoulder block through the ropes and then attempts to slingshot himself through the legs of Lashley, but Lashley catches him and tosses him over the top rope to the floor! Lashley slams EY into the apron and then the ring steps repeatedly. He whips EY into the steps and rolls back into the ring to break the referee’s 10 count before Scoop Slamming EY on the floor. Lashley tosses EY back into the ring and covers him for a nearfall. Lashley puts EY in a Torture Rack but EY rakes his eyes to break the hold and then hits the ropes only to eat a big clothesline from Lashley for another nearfall. Lashley puts EY in another version of the Rack, this time over his shoulder, but EY breaks it again and catches Lashley in a Crucifix for a nearfall. EY then catches Lashley with a Jackknife pin for another nearfall followed by a dropkick! EY attempts to whip Lashley into the corner but Lashley reverses it and charge at EY only ot eat a boot. EY climbs up top and dives off but Lashley catches him in midair and right into the Running Powerslam! 1…2…3!
Winner: Bobby Lashley via pinfall (Running Powerslam)
Lashley taunts EY with the World Title as EY continues to sell his back. Samoa Joe runs out and lays into Lashley with a series of jabs but then Lashley takes him down with a clothesline! Lashley charges at Joe but Joe drops down and Lashley goes flying over the top rope! Joe dares Lashley to get back in the ring but Lashley backs down.
In the back Willow spouts off a ridiculous promo about embracing the pain to win the war against Magnus and Bram. He said the mask is the key to winning the war.
EY talks to the doctor backstage and says he felt something pop in his back. The doctor advises him not to go back out tonight. Joe says what happened tonight is indicative of a bigger problem in TNA which is MVP. He says Lashley is an animal and he is one of a kind, but he doesn’t care who Lashley thinks he is. He says that Lashley is his next victim and MVP is next after that.
Magnus comes out to the ring along with Bram. Magnus is wearing a wifebeater and jeans instead of the suits he’s been wearing, and Bram says that Magnus is the most brutal man he knew growing up and the fans will grow to fear him. Magnus calls Bram his oldest friend and says that he helped bring back the old Magnus. Magnus says he was trying to be everything “they” wanted him to be, a watered down suit wearing joke. Magnus says he looks back at the last six months and it makes him sick to his stomach. Magnus says there will be no more of him being what someone else wants and with Bram by his side they are unstoppable. Bram says that Jeff Hardy needs an alter ego to give himself an edge but he knows now who the real Magnus is.
Willow comes out and says he has come out to give Bram and Magnus a chance to run. He says that he is dangerous and behind his mask he is not responsible for his actions because he comes from Jeff Hardy’s imagination. Willow says he remembers the “Hardy” chants which starts a “Hardy” chant but says where Jeff Hardy can’t go Willow can. Willow says that Magnus and Bram have woken something inside of him and at Slammiversary “we” will take them down. Magnus agrees to face Willow and “his alter ego.” He says that he doesn’t have an alter ego but he does have his insurance policy Bram. Willow says “we” are ready to talk and Bram says that he and Jeff Hardy are the “same bloody person.” Willow says of course he and Jeff Hardy are the same person and you never know who might show up, but he will have someone else in his corner. Hardy says “we will take you out” and then Abyss’ music hits! Abyss walks out and he hits the ring along with Willow to go after Bram and Magnus! The brawl goes all around ringside between the four. Willow clotheslines Magnus over the top rope and Abyss clotheslines Bram over the top! Bram and Magnus retreat up the ramp as Abyss and Willow celebrate in the ring. So I’m assuming that Abyss will be in Hardy’s corner while Bram will be in Magnus’ corner, why not a tag team match? That makes no sense at all.
Footage of the beat down on EC3 after the First Blood Match last week is shown. EC3 says that no one makes a Carter bleed and that everyone will pay like Dixie said. EC3 says that he will expose Bully as the “violent heathen” he is.
Zema Ion introduces Robbie E who he says has finally gotten over his fear of clowns.
Robbie E w/Jesse & Zema Ion vs. Knux w/The Menagerie
Robbie is scratching himself incessantly and biting his nails while watching Crazzy Steve. Knux Hip Tosses Robbie as he gets in the ring and then lays into him with a Shoulder Block followed by a modified Leg Drop decapitating Robbie. Jesse tries to flirt with Rebel but The Freak backs him down. All that distracted Knux allowing Robbie to get a few shots in. Steve gets on the apron which freaks out Robbie. Knux hits a Big Boot followed by a Running Cross Body! Robbie begs him off but then grabs Knux by the tights and tosses him into the ropes. Robbie hits a Running Knee and then chokes Knux in the ropes before Steve goes after him. Robbie climbs up top and dives off with a Flying Clothesine! The stupid clown music and lighting is still going on. Steve gets on the apron and does a “horn off” with DJ Z again. Knux catches Robbie with a Forearm Smash and then a big backdrop as he was distracted by Steve. Knux hits a Corner Splash and as Zema and Jesse distract Knux The Freak pulls them off and slams them into each other. Knux hits a huge Sitout Spinebuster for the pin.
Winner: Knux via pinfall (Sitout Spinebuster)
After the match Crazzy Steve puts his balloons in Robbie’s tights which causes Robbie to start running in circles trying to get away from the balloons.
In the back EC3 talks to Rockstar Spud asking him if he has everything ready for what they are doing tonight. Brooke Tessmacher walks up as EC3 asks Spud if he got the special guest he wanted.
EC3 comes out to the ring along with Rockstar Spud. EC3 says everyone deserves to know the truth about Bully Ray and his checkered path and to get to the truth he would like to introduce Brooke Tessmacher. Brooke comes out and EC3 says this is a “tree of trust” for her to be honest with. He asks Brooke if she had a relationship with Bully which she of course confirms, and then he asks if they are still together which of course she says no to. Taz asks if he is Dr. Phil all of a sudden. EC3 asks her if Bully was a cheater and had drinking problems but she says that none of that is true. EC3 then asks if Bully threatened to put her through a table and she says no again. Spud asks for the spotlight and then he starts questioning Brooke as well. He asks her if she has a secret and says that she doesn’t have to protect Bully anymore. Spud then pulls out a piece of paper and says “I have the results!” Spud tells her to stop lying but she says she has no idea what he is saying. EC3 asks Spud what the hell is doing and Spud says “Bully Ray IS the father” as Brooke laughs at him. Brooke says if Bully has a child it definitely wasn’t with her. Spud says he has pictures and then has a picture put on the screen of a baby making a goofy face beside a picture of Bully. Spud says she will not keep the truth from them again as a “he’s the father” chant starts up. Spud calls her a “hussy” and a liar which causes Brooke to get in his face.
EC3 says that maybe he should do what Bully didn’t do and teach her a lesson in respect. Bully comes out causing EC3 and Spud to scatter. Bully asks EC3 how his head is doing and reminds him that he made him bleed last week. He says that he has a table with EC3’s name on it and he guarantees that he will go through it. Bully looks over at Brooke and he says he didn’t expect to see her tonight, but the bottom line is she was an awesome girlfriend and they had a great time together and he is sorry that it didn’t work out. Bully wishes the best for her and hugs her. EC3 mocks them and says that his pandering sickens him. EC3 says their issues need to come to a head and as the fans chant for tables EC3 asks them if they want tables. EC3 says there is a time for tables and that place is Dallas, TX at Slammiversary and he officially challenges Bully to a Tables Match! EC3 says that Bully will only put Dixie Carter through a table over his dead body. Bully laughs and asks if he just said “over your dead body” and normally he would jump at the opportunity to have a tables match, but since EC3 just said “over your dead body” and since they will be in Texas they should do something that hasn’t been done in a long time…a Texas Death Match! EC3 agrees as Spud begs him not to.
MVP and his boys talk about the match between King and EY upcoming. MVP tries to get King focused and tells him to make sure he’s got this because he tends to have mental lapses.
“The King of the Night” Kenny King vs. “Showtime” Eric Young
EY continues to sell his back as he comes out to the ring. King mocks EY’s back injury and then they lockup and EY gets King in a hammerlock. King reverses the hold and counters into a Japanese Armdrag. They lockup again and EY gets King in a wristlock but again King reverses only for EY to catch him with a Fireman’s Cary Takeover. Another lockup leads to King backing EY into the corner and swinging at him, but EY ducks and lays into King with right hands. EY whips King into the corner and then hits King with a Scoop Slam. EY falls down to his knees selling the back which King sees and immediately jumps on with shots to the back. King drags EY out to the apron and attempts to suplex him on the apron, but EY reveres it but EY couldn’t lift him up because of the back. King then catches him with a Cartwheel Kick that sends EY crashing to the apron. King drags EY back in the ring and puts the boots to EY’s back before putting him in a Chinlock while sticking his knee in EY’s back. EY fights the hold off and breaks it with elbows but King takes EY out with a running knee for a nearfall. King lifts EY up to the top rope and climbs up with him for a Superplex, but EY fights him off and shoves him back but King backflips to his feet. EY then dives off the top with a Flying Cross Body! Both men are down and EY is selling his back again. EY lays into King with several rights and then connects with a Flying Forearm as King comes off the ropes. EY hits a Lariat and then a Scoop Slam before climbing to the top. King crotches him on the top rope and then climbs up with him again, and again EY knocks him off only to eat a Leaping Enziguri from King! King then pulls him down into the Royal Flush! King brags to the camera instead of going for the pin and then goes to the apron. King attempts a Springboard Somersault Senton but EY moves and hits the Spike Piledriver for the pin!
