Recap by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
As the show opens Jeff Hardy was shown arriving earlier today. He says that he has a lot of things to say to his brother tonight.
Footage of last week’s crazy ending is shown.
Jeff Hardy makes his way to the ring and he says that he has had a full week to let everything set in from last week. He says that what his brother did last week made him sick and he needs some answers from Matt tonight. Jeff calls Matt out and he comes down to the ring alongside Tyrus and Reby with new heel theme music. Tyrus is even carrying Matt’s son with him.
Jeff says he didn’t call Reby nor Tyrus out and he wants to speak to Matt alone because this is a family issue. Reby says that she is Matt’s wife and SHE is his family. She says that she was there for him when the world abandoned him and she was there for him when Jeff abandoned him to play a Redneck Evil Kenevil last year. Reby says that she told Matt to stop giving and start taking for once. She says that he doesn’t need Jeff anymore and their family doesn’t need Jeff nor the fans anymore. Jeff says that he isn’t talking to his “sister bitch in law” which pisses Matt off and demands that Jeff apologize for saying that. Jeff says that Matt is acting like a little bitch too and calls Tyrus “big bitch 3.” Jeff asks Matt what he hell is doing which starts a “why Matt why” chant.
Tyrus starts to move towards Jeff but Matt stops him and says that it is okay because Jeff is just a little uncomfortable right now. Matt says that Jeff isn’t used to being in Matt’s shadow for a change. Matt says that he took his wife’s advice and it worked as he holds up the World Title. He says that he doesn’t know if Jeff is upset because he is walking around like a cripple but says that is Jeff’s own fault and now Jeff is just “the other Hardy.” Jeff says he can’t be happy or proud for Matt after the way he won the Title and he doesn’t understand what is going on in Matt’s head. Matt says that it is time that they just simply go their separate ways so Jeff can hang out with all the cretins in the crowd while Matt goes on to be the greatest World Champion ever. A big “EC3” chant starts and Jeff says that last time EC3 won the World Title he called EC3 the best wrestler in the planet because he won it fairly. He says that there is only one way to settle this and as everyone knows he is cleared to wrestle again so he wants Matt to make his first defense against Jeff…TONIGHT! Reby whispers something to Matt and Matt says that if he wants this then at this moment he wipes his hands of all guilt for what happens to Jeff tonight and walks away.
A vignette hypes up the Feast or Fired Match for tonight.

He says that it is obvious that Mike isn’t the brains of the operation and looks over at Maria. Maria laughs at him and says that they are doing him and everyone in the company by being in TNA. Bennett says that the next time Drew insults him or his wife he will need a miracle to survive.
Eli Drake’s briefcase contains the KOTM Title shot, they will reveal the rest later.

She says that in their world they are a little mad and then she starts screaming about “decay.” Steve walks out with a new wild face paint job and new tights.

Winners: The Wolves via DQ
The woman spits mist into Davey’s face as well and Steve locks him in the Crossface Chicken Wing as she bites Davey’s head! Abyss Chokeslams Eddie in the ring and Steve and Abyss raise the belts over a fallen Eddie while the weird chick poses with them. That chick is Indy wrestler Courtney Rush by the way and she is more than competent in the ring so this should be interesting.
The next case revealed is Storm’s and they have earned a Tag Title shot! Everyone seems to be slapping Grado on the back, hard, leading to some hilarious facial expressions from him. Galloway opens his case and he has won the World Title shot which means Grado has the pinkslip! It was hilarious seeing Grado smiling and congratulating Drew until it started to dawn on him that it meant he was fired.
Josh says that EC3 will discuss his future next week.
