The following are results of the Impact Wrestling tapings currently taking place in Glasgow, Scotland.
As a reminder, the show will be airing at 4pm EST in The UK, and WZ's Bob Bamber will be providing live coverage of the show right here on the site!
JJ noted that the live crowd is bigger than he would have imagined. He noted that the venue opened last year and has hosted sold out shows for Beyonce, Mikey Cyrus, The Eagles, Lady Gaga, and Justin Timberlake. The top tier of the building is tarped off, but while he expected the second level to be tarped off, it was filling up quickly prior to bell time.
The broadcast team made their entrances. The video screen seemed a little out of sync, but after the opening credits there seemed to be some standoff between Angle, Joe and Dixie's henchmen backstage, but it flashed off very quickly.
Magnus and Rockstar Spud headed to the ring for a promo. Magnus got some great heel heat. Though it could be that he's English. He said he saw off Sting like he did Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles. He spoke about "thinning of the herd" by Dixie, ridding TNA of the dinosaurs to make way for the new stars like Bro-Mans, Zema Ion, Spud, and Magnus. He said he singlehandedly eliminated the above faces. EC3 took exception to that.
They were interrupted by Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle. Angle and Joe came out to huge reception. The heels exited. Angle was super over. He said they were there to avenge the "screwing of the herd". He said Magnus is a paper champion. Loud "paper champion" chant. He said he regrets accepting Magnus into the Main Event Mafia.
Magnus said he's a somebody and Kurt can't accept that he's champion. Joe said they've come to Glasgow to fight, and a tag match was set with Angle and Joe vs. Magnus and EC3. Magnus issued the challenge. If heels win, then Angle and Joe are gone! Joe suggests that whoever pins Magnus gets a title shot. Hot opening.
Hold on. Dixie Carter the match isn't happening. Magnus wasn't happy. Dixie said there's too much going on with the investor arriving and she can't risk him losing the title to Angle or Joe. Magnus made the match anyway. That seemed a bit confusing…
We can hear but not see what's happening backstage. That was a mess. Something about the Wolves waiting for the investor to arrive?…
1. Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne beat Gail Kim and Lei'D Tapa. Velvet pinned Gail clean. Very short match…
Chris Sabin came out berating Velvet, saying he hadn't heard from her since last week. He suggested she's gone crazy due to PMS. He demanded an apology and a massage. Loud no chants! Velvet said, "We're done!"…
Ugh. The video screen seems screwed. Audio but no visual. Kurt was threatening someone not to interfere tonight. Sounded like Bobby Roode…
James Storm was super over. He detailed his history with Gunner before it fell apart and called him out so he could put an end to it. Gunner said they both had a goal to be great, and they achieved that as a team and that when he won the briefcase something changed. He said he had to make a decision for his family, and Storm would have done the same. He said he learned in the Marines that you don't fight for the government, you fight for the man standing beside you. Storm said he knows Gunner is a great man and a hell of a wrestler. He said his kids are most important thing, and his daughter asked him why he's mad at Gunner. He said he has Gunner's back. They shook hands.
