Impact WrestlingFirst up was Alex Sheley V Mark Haskins V Austin Airies for the X Division title….

Back and forth – mostly Haskins and Airies – crownd cheering for Both Haskins and Sheley,

Winner – And still X Division Champ – Austin Airies.

Next Was Crimson V Doug Williams

Doug had a good bout, Crimson took a few boos and cheers - back and forth, good match, with Crimson keeping his undefeated streak in tact.

Next Was Gunner (No Ric Flair) V AJ Styles

As predicted, Gunner got a lot of heat from the crowd, and AJ took the cheers. Back and forth match (Probley to even things out and give the crowd the chance to get involved)

Winner: AJ Styles

Jeremy Borash, Giving out Backstage Passes to 2 people. The only ones given out. Even though We were Tweeting him with no response.

Next was a Knockouts Tag Team Bout.

Gail Kim & Madison Rayne V Mickie James and Tara. Mickie took a bit of a beating, then back and forth… Earl Hebner plants a kiss on Madison towards the End to put her out of the ring.

Winners Mickie James and Tara – They both Kiss Earl and he pretends to faint…

INTERVAL – with Borash saying alot more Backstages passes after Interval

Dixie Carter comes out and gives her audtion of How good the crowd is and how much she loves the UK…

Shame she and JB dont take note of the fans a bit more and give out as promised the backstage passes as promised. NONE GIVEN OUT IN THE SECOND INTERVAL… Shame really, because I attend each time and never seem to get a sniff (GENUINE FAN HERE)

Double Main Event -

Samoa Joe V Robert Roode for the TNA Championship. Very good bout, back and forth again – Joe was amazing, Roode playing the crowd a little to get reactions

Winner – And still Champ – Robert Roode.

Final Main Event saw Kurt Angle and Bully Ray V Cowboy James Storm and The Icon Sting.

Bully playing to the crowd winding them up about Manchester United and Manchester City, Then Takes his shirt off to reveal a Liverpool Soccer Shirt to wind the crowd up more, and alsogave a granny some stick for beating up some bullys.

Roode comes out and introduces himself as Kurt and Bullys Tag Team Partner, then Sting says they have a tag team partner.. GUESS WHO…

YEP….. The Immortal Hulk Hogan.

Hulk starts off – goes back and forth a little – in and out, Hulk & Sting dont wreslte much to be honest, i know they are probley the oldest Wrestlers on tour, but people pay to see a little more. Good crowd pleasers though.

During the match, Hulk grabs the grannys cane and batters Bully Ray with it for them to pick up the win….

Good event really, but could of done more in the ring with Sting and Hogan.

Best Match – Samoa Joe V Roode.
Worst Match – X division Championship.
Oscar Nomination to Bully Ray – Knows how to get the crowd going on the mic.

Overall – 8/10 BUT not a sell out – Alot of empty seats, especially behind me —

Well done TNA
