Based on how this all went down, I think they are taping segments out of order for different shows.
Impact opened with TNA champion Sting in the ring holding the old TNA title and Jeff Hardy version. Sting said that before Hulk Hogan tries to overtake the show, he wants them to get out here and face him. Hogan and Eric Bischoff come out. Sting tosses them the Hardy belt and says this is theirs and they can take the garbage. Sting says that Hogan took one of the brightest stars in wrestling, Jeff Hardy, and ruined him with his influence. They acted like Hardy was done as Sting said he can’t do anything to help Jeff anymore but he can help TNA. Hogan said that Sting tries to blame everyone else but he’s the guy who disappears and shows up when he wants. Hogan said that the only person at fault is Hardy, who couldn’t run with Immortal and stand in the shadow of the Hulkster. Hogan said that Hardy couldn’t hang but everyone else can so Sting needs to worry about himself. Hogan said stars from all over the world want to join his Tsunami taking over wrestling.
Sting said that no one is coming to join Hogan and all he sees all the time are just Hogan and Bischoff.
Out comes Bully Ray, who comes out and says that he’s here to prove that people are coming to Hogan’s side because Hulk is a star while Sting was just a secondary player. Billy says that Sting is selfish and could never live up to Hogan so it’ll be a pleasure to take Sting out. Before that can happen, Fortune arrives to back up Sting. AJ and Bubba go back and forth until AJ slaps him. Ken Anderson then comes out and demands he finally gets his title rematch. Hogan says he’s an a**hole and Anderson agrees. They announce Anderson vs. Ray vs. AJ vs. RVD to determine the new top contender.
