TNA began iMPACT TV tapings yesterday and will continue until Wednesday to get material for 4 weeks of TV.
Shane Douglas & Raven both returned at the taping, Douglas attacking Daniels and Raven alligning with former ECW whipping boy, Dr. Stevie Richards, except now Stevie is doing the whipping on Abyss. WWE’s Victoria (Lisa Maie Varon) also debuted.
In matches & segments taped:
AJ Styles defeated Daniels to earn a spot in the KING OF THE MOUNTAIN match at the next PPV. Douglas attacked Daniels postmatch.
Suicide retained the X division title defeating Amazing Red. Red is now with the company fulltime after well received performances in the tag team tournament teaming with Suicide.
Sting promo as the new Godfather of the MEM. He fired the women and security.
Doug Williams defated Cody Deaner in a ladder match
Angelina Love retained the Knockouts title defeating Sojoyner Bolr, then fired Cute Kip again (Kip can not buy a break it seems, but at least he worked a few TVs). Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne with LOve were then attacked by Lisa Marie Varon.
Mick Foley in ring announced a match for "next week", Samoa Joe vs Kevin Nash in a cage, winner gets into the KING OF THE MOUNTAIN match
Eric Young cut a promo vowing to become a Main Eventer……here’s hoping creative gives him a single direction and sticks with it, as he’s alway been popular with the fans but because of how his character has been developed (scared of pyro, Super Eric, etc), when he’s been put in Main Event spots it has not worked well.
Jeff Jarrett beat Eric Young to get into the King Of The Mountain Match. Young attacked Jarrett’s already injured leg postmatch "turning". It was Jarrett who "turned" quite a while back helping Eric Young if anyone remembers. BTW, Young beating Jarrett might have elivated him, him attacking Jarrett postmatch after losing, maybe not so much.
Dr. Stevie & Abyss segment with more tough love therapy for Abyss. Abyss was in a starightjacket and Stevie was prepared to hit him with a kendo stick until Lauren stopped him, which lead to Raven, who teased hitting Stevie with the stick but hit Abyss, and everything old is new again as Stevie is with Raven.
Daniels defeated Amazing Red (TNA schedule all of Red’s matches on Monday to help Red who needed to be back in NY Tuesday)
Beer Money defeated Chris Sabin & Consequenses Creed. Not sure why Creed teamed with Sabin
