TNA Impact Results
TNA Impact Opener:
Hogan and Bischoff are in a limo talking about someone defecting to TNA and how their plane is ready to land, and then bring up Flair and how he is going to flip out after the ring presentation tonight. Finally the subject of Sting comes up and Hogan says he’s changed alot and someone is going to call him out. Inside the Impact Zone Mike Tenay confirms the rumor that Impact will move back to Thursday nights, but says it’s because they "listened to the fans."
Flair’s music hits but "Black Machismo" Jay Lethal comes out instead and points to his hand. He is doing the Flair strut and people are going crazy. He goes crazy on the WOOOO’s and brings up his hand and shows off the Hall of Fame ring. He says Hogan told him to wait until the end, but he can’t wait. Lethal is doing a pretty good Flair impersonation here, getting good laughs while hitting some classic Flair lines and even kneedrops the jacket. Some of the crowd breaks out a "We Want Ric" chant and the real Nature Boy hits the ring and doesn’t look amused.
Flair asks Lethal if he knows where he is, and says he is standing in front of God. Flair says he is being disrespected and asks Lethal if he wants to be Ric Flair. Lethal tries giving him the ring back and apologizes, and says this is the proudest moment of his career, just being in the ring with him. Flair thanks him for the ring but says it’s not over and slaps him. Lethal slaps him back and chops away in the corner and backbody drops Flair. Lethal now slaps on the Figure Four until Team Flair hits the ring and beat Lethal with belts. Abyss finally comes to the ring to try and help but the numbers are too much for him. Team 3D comes out to even things up and they are brawling around the ring. Now RVD’s music hits and he clears the heels from the ring as he is holding a chair.
We go back to Hogan’s limo and he is talking about how tonight is going to be perfect, and it almost feels wrong. Then he looks at a text on his phone and tells Bischoff what just happened with Lethal. They tell the driver to hurry up and turn the car around as we go to our first commercial.
