TNA Impact Wrestling Results (8/8) – Tito Ortiz Speaks, Bobby Roode’s New Alliance, Sabin Chooses A Mystery Partner

Bill Pritchard

The cameras catch up with Roode in the back and he said he was lost, but he found himself and it doing what the 'It Factor' does best. He says he wants the TNA World Heavyweight Championship back, and he just did something that changed the landscape of this company. Roode says he outsmarted them, then Magnus is shown talking to the referee and he says he had to make the right decision. Magnus says he's not mad, but things will work themselves out, and he knows he will get his ten points back, one way or another. We cut to Robbie E and Jessie Godderz in the locker room, and Robbie says they kicked Tara to the curb because they have a code, and it's Bro Mans before Romance. Mickie James walks in and says she hopes they're ready because she shines in the ring, then she walks away and says she shines on them and Jessie says he's glad he wears sunglasses.

Tito Ortiz comes out for an interview with Jeremy Borash, and he says he knows the fans have a lot of questions for him, but he doesn't have too many answers. Kurt Angle cuts him off and gets in his face, and he says he knows who he is and what he's done, but this is his world, and it's his ring. Kurt says he's earned the title of greatest wrestler alive and he's beaten a lot of guys, but he will respect Tito's space and stay out of it as long as he does the same. He asks Tito if that's clear and Tito says he hears him, then Bully Ray comes out and says they respect each other, but he doesn't respect either one of them. Bully says he could take Tito out, and he's been kicking Kurt's ass for a decade, then he introduces himself and says he'll smack Tito if he gets in his way. Bully leaves and heads backstage, then Kurt and Tito shake hands and Kurt leaves as the segment ends.

Bro Mans & Mickie James vs Gunner, James Storm & ODB 

Robbie sends Storm into the ropes but Storm knocks him down and hits a corner enziguiri, then he slams him on the mat and hits some mounted punches. Robbie uses a distraction to stomp Storm and tag out, then he hits a diving STO on the way out and Jessie follows it with a dropkick. Storm comes back with a DDT, then he whips him and kicks him in the face but Jessie comes back with a corner tackle and some stomps in the corner. Jessie tags out and holds Storm for Robbie, then he punches him and hits the ropes but Storm comes back with a big boot and a Backcracker. He kicks Robbie away and makes the tag, then Gunner hits a backbreaker but Mickie jumps on his back and chokes him, only to have ODB knock her outside. Gunner goes for a Torture Rack but Jessie counters, then he goes for a powerbomb but Storm hits a Last Call and they hit a powerbomb/neckbreaker combo for the win. Gail Kim runs in and attacks ODB after the bell, then the ref removes her but Mickie sucker punches ODB and taunts Gail on the way out.

Winners – Gunner, James Storm & ODB
