TNA Impact Results
No intro tonight as we cut right into footage shot earlier of Jeff Hardy fighting with Abyss in the backstage area. Hardy pounds on Abyss for a bit and slams him into various objects before Abyss recovers and throws Hardy on a table. He brings Hardy into the area and they fight around the crew setting up for the show. Hardy hits Abyss in the ribs with a mop but Abyss kicks him and throws him into the guardrail. Hardy throws a chair at Abyss and they start making their way backstage again then Abyss chokes Hardy with an extension chord. Hardy takes the fight into a hallway where fans are waiting to get into the Impact Zone until security runs in and restrains Hardy.
When we cut back live, Eric Bischoff makes his way out to the ring and he says he has never seen anything like what happened last week. He will hold Ric Flair responsible, and they will not stand for it, and he apologizes to Dixie Carter. Bischoff next addresses Abyss, and says he has no idea what is coming for him, courtesy of Hogan and Bischoff. Bischoff gets to RVD’s condition and he says RVD has 117 stitches and may have spinal and head trauma. He says if and when RVD can return everyone will welcome him back with open arms and he will always have a home in TNA. Bischoff says the show must go on, and he made a decision with Dixie and Hogan, and they will vacate the TNA World Heavyweight Title. There will be a tournament between the Top 8 contenders, and the finals will be at Bound For Glory.
