Jason Powell of ProWrestling.net is reporting that Mick Foley lobbied to have the finish changed for his tag team match with Kurt Angle against Abyss and Matt Morgan which aired this past Thursday night on TNA Impact.
Apparently, Foley did not like the planned finish of the match, which called for Mick to take the pin fall in the bout, and due to his backstage politicking, TNA shot the finish of the contest by having Dr. Stevie and Daffney come out and replace Foley mid way through the match. All of this was Foley’s idea, however, after the match apparently bombed and TNA officials were unhappy with it, they decided to reshoot the match with the original plan which called for Foley to take the pin fall, which is of course the version of the match that aired on Impact last week.
Following the first taping last week, it’s being said that Foley’s backstage lobbying upset a few talents in the locker room, and several TNA sources feel that Foley was simply trying to avoid taking the pin fall in the match as opposed to him feeling that his idea was the better "creative" move. While it’s being said that Foley did not put of a fight when TNA wanted to re-shoot the match, it was noted that his antics left somewhat of a bad taste in the mouths of several TNA talents.
