This weeks Impact started out with Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff addressing Mick Foley. Throughout the night Foley and Bischoff were trying to work things out and work together. Speaking of working things out, the ongoing saga between Jeff Jarrett and Hulk Hogan keeps going and it even went further when Jarrett was forced back in the ring to face Mr. Anderson. The opening bout was The Beautiful People vs. Kong, Tara, Hamada and The Beautiful People won the match and beat down Tara until Angelina Love made the save.
Then Desmond Wolfe took on Sean Morley in a very solid and simple match which saw Wolfe winning the match to move on to an 8 man tournament for the number contender to the Heavyweight championship. The other qualifying match saw Hernandez vs. Daniels and Hernandez won the match. Hulk Hogan and Kurt Angle had a confrontation about what had happen last week and they came to a mutual respect for each other. Then Hall and Waltman attacked Kurt from behind. There was a lot of backstage stuff with AJ Styles and Ric Flair throughout the night. AJ is becoming a very credible heel but he’s not quite there yet. Hopefully the Nature Boy will rub off on him.
The funniest part of the night was the war of words between the Nasty Boys and Team 3D. I want to see these two teams fight because it would be very entertaining. The best match of the night was Amazing Red and GenerationMe taking on Brian Kendrick and The Motor City Machine Guns. Kendrick pinned Red and then after the match Doug Williams took Rob Terry’s briefcase and cashed it in for an X Division title shot. Doug Williams won the match and became the new TNA X Division Champion much to the dismay of Rob Terry who won the briefcase in the Feast or Fired this match a few months ago.
The main event was Jeff Jarrett taking on Mr. Anderson. Jarrett looked decent for not wrestling in 7 months but it was Mr. Anderson who won with the Mic Check for the win and that’s how the show ended. TNA is getting better each week and I know it will continue to be better as long as they have good matches and push the young guys. Next week the 8 Card Stud Tournament Continues with Tomko vs. Kurt Angle and Brutus Magnus vs. Mr. Anderson. Check back next week for another recap of TNA Impact.
