Impact Wrestling Results
The Impact Wrestling roster is surrounding the ring as we get under way, and Dixie Carter says tonight is an important night. She introduces new general manager Hulk Hogan, and he comes out and poses for the fans then gives Dixie a hug. Hulk says it is nice to be back and he thanks Sting for watching his back, then he says they have alot of business to take care of. He tells Morgan and Crimson they are going to end things in a cage at Lockdown, and he also says there will be a Knockouts Challenge tonight. Hulk says he needs to handle something before they go on, and he calls Eric Bischoff out to the ring but Ric Flair says he isn't here. Flair says Hulk can't tell him what to do, and Hulk tells Flair if he is speaking for Bischoff he should find him and get him here.
Bobby Roode makes his own entrance and Hulk gets on his for being late, but Roode says his watch says he is on time because he does whatever he wants. Roode tells him to ask Sting how things work around here, because there is no one who will stop him from being a dominant champion. He says his only obligation is to defend his title against James Storm at Lockdown, and he is leaving until then, but Hulk stops him and says things changed. Hulk calls Ken Anderson into the ring and he says the fans want to see them fight, and Roode screams no they don't but Hulk says it's happening. Hulk turns his attention to Kurt Angle, and he says Kurt doesn't have to wrestle Jeff Hardy at Lockdown, because the fans want it tonight and he is giving it to them now!
Jeff Hardy vs Kurt Angle
Kurt locks up with Hardy and takes him into the corner, but Hardy comes back with a side headlock and a few shoulder blocks. Hardy puts Kurt in an armbar, but Kurt makes it to his feet and tries to armdrag Hardy, only to have Hardy hold on and keep the armbar in place. Kurt backs him into the corner and rakes his eyes, then he whips him across the ring but Hardy floats over and kicks Kurt out of the ring. Hardy follows with a mule kick through the ropes, then he throws Kurt into the barricade and the steps before he rolls him in. Kurt is busted open but he gets up and tosses Hardy out of the ring, then he drops him with a shoulder block as we go to a break. (Cont'd...)
