TNA took advantage of their return to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL this week, taping two episodes of Impact Wrestling that will bring us through December 12th. There was some major news coming out Friday and Saturday's shows, including the return of former TNA Knockout Madison Rayne. The 4-time Knockouts Champion has been on leave since March, and gave birth to her first child in August. This summer, Rayne was announced as one of the many TNA names to part ways with the company. She returned to save ODB from an attack by Lei'D Tapa and the current reigning champ, Gail Kim. 

Feast or Fired?

In other TNA news, a big "Feast or Fired" match was announced for the 12/12 Impact Wrestling main event. Briefcases were won by Chavo Guerrero, Ethan Carter III, Zema Ion and Gunner. Three of those men will have future shots at the major TNA titles, while one will be fired. 

Austin Aries defeated Chris Sabin to become a 3-time X-Division Champion in a match also taped for December 12th. Sabin won the title from Manik at Bound for Glory earlier this year, in a match that also featured Aries, Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy. 

And finally, on the December 5th edition of Impact Wrestling, the two semi-final round matches came to a head, when Magnus defeated Kurt Angle, and Jeff Hardy defeated Bobby Roode. Hardy and Magnus will collide in a "Dixieland" match on December 19th, during the special Final Resolution edition of Impact Wrestling.
