TNA Impact (Airing Monday, April 26, 2010 on Spike TV):
* Hulk Hogan out to start the show. He's been on a high since Lockdown and since Impact last week. To be TNA heavyweight champ now means more than he thought it could be. He says RVD has a target on his back and everybody in the back is stepping it up. He mentions Eric Bischoff's new ranking system that the fans have a big part in it. Hogan says RVD vs. Hardy could go either way but RVD pulled it out. He hands it to AJ for being great but the 5 star frog splash changed things up. Hogan brings out the new champ RVD. Van Dam says Hulk can now call him Mr. TNA Rob Van Dam. Hogan gives it a try and the crowd is going nuts. RVD is way over. RVD is feeling the love in the Impact Zone. He says the universe is full of nothing but positive energy. RVD just wants a fair opportunity to be RVD. He says no one will understand the connection he and Hulk have to Mother Earth's finest. Being such cool dudes but also being such tough dudes. He's one of baddest dudes and will be one of the greatest champions ever and that's why he's the whole f'n show.
* AJ Styles' music hits and AJ comes out with Ric Flair. Hogan says nobody invited either one of these ex-champs out here. Crowd is chanting ex-world champ. AJ says RVD sounds like a Hallmark card. Don't get him wrong, millions don't get his lifestyle like he doesn't. But he asks if he's right now. The crowd chants "yes he is". He says he must be because he was beating his ass last week and slipped off the top rope and that's why he lost. This week he's in a BS tag match when he should be getting his rematch. He says it's OK, he'll eventually get his rematch so put that in your pipe and smoke it you pothead. Flair cuts Hogan off from talking and says he's not letting other people do his work and Abyss will be done. Tonight he's going to style and profile. To be the man you have to beat the man and tonight he'll take Abyss out.
* For the TNA Knockouts title, Angelina Love vs. Tara vs. Madison Rayne. Winner via schoolgirl on Angelina Love, Madison Rayne. Tara attacks Angelina Love after the match. Security runs out to break it up but can't contain them. Tara cries and apologies and then attacks Angelina again takes her out. Love is left lying on the entrance ramp and is helped out by security.
