*Madison Rayne won a Ten Knockout Battle Royal to become the top contender for the Knockouts title, pissing off Gail Kim. Rayne sat ringside the entire bout, then tossed Velvet Sky at the end.
*Ric Flair. Gunner and Eric Bischoff come out. Bischoff cuts a promo saying that Gunner destroyed Garett Bischoff's career and warned his son to never, ever return to TNA. No Garrett. No Hulk Hogan.
*Sting informs Bobby Roode that he will defend against James Storm at Lockdown and Roode attacked Sting and laid him out with the TNA title belt.
Partial Results for 2/23 Impact:
*New York Giant Brandon Jacobs came out and cut a promo putting over James Storm. He calls out Bully Ray and said that he's back in Ray's backyard and challenged him. They go back and forth on the mic, leading to Ray ripping on Jacobs and the Giants. Ray said he's not going to fight someone who only ran 59 yards at the Superbowl. Jacobs chased him to the back.
*Jeff Hardy & James Storm (with Brandon Jacobs) vs. Bully Ray & Kurt Angle in a No DQ match. Jacobs entered the ring and chokeslammed Ray through a table to set up the finish, then hits the James Storm, "Sorry about your damn luck" line. The show ended with Jacobs raising Storm's hand.
Obviously, they filmed the last two segments since they only had Jacobs in for the one night.
