TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - January 4, 2010
Impact! Live 3-hour Special - The show scored an overall 1.5 rating, highest in TNA history, and the first hour (from 8:00 - 9:00 pm EST) scored a 1.69 rating, the most-watched hour in TNA history. The show opened with a package of interviews conducted earlier in the day with fans waiting to get into the Impact Zone, and marked the debut of radio DJ Bubba the Love Sponge as a TNA backstage interviewer. Mike Tenay & Taz hyped a show card that included Rhino vs. Abyss in a Barbed Wire Massacre match and Beer Money Inc. vs. the British Invasion for the TNA World Tag Team Titles. After the Steel Asylum match Christy Hemme interviewed Kevin Nash backstage, and he reiterated that Hulk Hogan would not arrive in TNA alone. After the TNA Knockout Title match, a limo was shown arriving backstage and Ric Flair stepped out of it to the astonishment of Tenay and Taz. Flair shook hands with several TNA employees, including Beer Money and TNA Global Champion Eric Young, before walking backstage and straight into the locker room of TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles. The announcers later reported that Flair spent more than an hour behind closed doors with Styles. After a commercial, pre-show footage was shown of Mick Foley trying to enter the Impact Zone and being denied entry by security. Foley told Hemme that he just wanted to be a part of the biggest night in TNA history. Back in the ring, Bobby & Kristal Lashley came out and Kristal said that Bobby wanted his immediate release from his TNA contract. Kristal insulted pro wrestling and praised mixed martial arts, while Bobby said nothing. Cameras returned backstage to find the Beautiful People sitting at a card table. Velvet Sky said that they wanted to bring in big ratings, so they decided to play strip poker during the live show. After a commercial, Scott Hall & Sean "Syxx-Pac" Waltman were shown also trying to enter the Impact Zone but being turned away by security. They fought with security before cameras cut away to Hulk Hogan's motorcade, which was said to be just a block away. Hall & Waltman then entered the Impact Zone through the crowd, and after a commercial Hogan made his TNA debut to a massive ovation. Hogan praised TNA and the its roster until Hall & Waltman jumped the guard rail and came into the ring, and told Hogan that they were ready to party. "That was a different time and a different place," Hogan told them. "It doesn't work that way this time." Kevin Nash then came to the ring and hugged Hall & Waltman and told Hogan, "That's not exactly the conversation we've been having." Eric Bischoff then made his TNA debut and told the former nWo members, "Everybody has to earn their spot in this company." Nash told Bischoff that they heard him "loud and clear," and then left the ring with Hall & Waltman. Bischoff called for the night's booking sheet, which So Cal Val provided. Bischoff then tore it up and handed Val a new format sheet, which she was instructed to give to the director. As Hogan's music played and he posed for the crowd, Sting was shown watching from the rafters. After the TNA Knockout Tag Team Title match cameras went back to the Beautiful People's strip poker game, which was interrupted by Sean "Val Venis" Morley, who said that he could make the game more interesting because he was wearing nothing but a towel. Mick Foley was then shown again trying to enter the building, but being turned away by Big Sal & Tilly who said they could lose their jobs if they let him in. As Foley walked away the Nasty Boys walked to the door, making their TNA debut. They were denied entry as well and told they were not on the guest list. After a tag team match, Hemme interviewed D'Angelo Dinero about his coming match with Desmond Wolfe until they were interrupted by Orlando Jordan, making his TNA debut. Jordan said he was looking for his friend Hulk Hogan, and told Dinero that he reminded him a lot of himself. After the Dinero/Wolfe match, Jeremy Borash was shown backstage standing over an unconscious Rhino and calling for help. Borash was then run off by Bubba the Love Sponge, who said that he would take over Borash's duties and find out who was taking out wrestlers. After a commercial, Borash interviewed A.J. Styles in his locker room about his scheduled Title defense against Kurt Angle at Genesis. Bischoff then interrupted and told Styles that he would face Angle that night instead of Genesis. Back in the ring, Jeff Jarrett came out and gave an impassioned speech about Hogan's arrival and the growth of TNA as the crowd chanted "Thank you Jeff," "Welcome back," and "T-N-A." He promised to work alongside Hogan and Dixie Carter to make TNA better. Hogan then appeared on screen and buried Jarrett, telling him that he was stripped of all power and would "have to fall in line like everybody else." He said that Jarrett nearly ran TNA into the ground until Dixie saved it. Cameras then returned backstage for a Hemme interview with Christopher Daniels, which was interrupted by Borash. He said that Foley was texting him to let him inside the Impact Zone, and Hemme told him to just say no. When Borash opened the door to tell Foley to leave, Foley instead pushed his way through the door and said he was going to find Hogan. After a commercial Jeff Hardy was shown painting in a locker room as Shannon Moore fawned over him, and then said it was time to go "meet with the big man." After the Samoa Joe vs. Abyss match Kristal Lashley confronted Bischoff about obtaining Bobby's release, and Bischoff laughed at her and told her to "leave her attitude at the door" before trying to talk to Hogan. Cameras then showed Bubba standing over the fallen Beer Money, apparently the 4th and 5th victims of the mystery attackers. Bubba then snuck the Nasty Boys into the building. We then cut to a Borash interview with Kurt Angle, who said he would regain the TNA World Heavyweight Title. Cameras then returned to Hardy & Moore, who were leaving the building apparently with contracts in hand. Hardy was mobbed by three screaming teenage girls, and he gave them his painting before driving off in a Ferrari. After a commercial the Nasty Boys were shown taking Team 3D's locker room, since 3D was off wrestling in Japan. Knobs & Sags attacked security when they brought donuts as a peace offering, and then spraypainted over a Team 3D picture in the locker room and destroyed the lockers. After the main event, Hogan returned to the entranceway and put over Styles and Angle as "the two best wrestlers in the world today" before a TNA employee whispered something in his ear. Hogan looked startled and ran backstage. Cameras then cut to Foley interrupting the strip poker game and having a confrontation with Morley, who eventually told Foley how to get to Hogan's office. Foley mumbled that he knew where it was, because Hogan had actually taken his office. Foley smashed through the door to find Bischoff sitting at the desk, and he said that he swore long ago that he would never again work for Bischoff. Foley prepared to slug Bischoff, but was attacked from behind by Nash, Hall, and Waltman. Hogan eventually walked in and shouted "What's going on here?" before the show faded to black.
The Amazing Red retained the TNA X-Division Title in a Steel Asylum match with Homicide, Kiyoshi, Suicide, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Jay Lethal, and Consequences Creed when referees ruled the match a no contest after Homicide pulled a baton from his tights and began using it on all the other competitors. The crowd in the Impact Zone chanted "This is bullshit," forcing Spike TV's censors to silence the audio repeatedly. After taking out the other wrestlers Homicide still climbed to the top of the structure and tried to escape, but got stuck near the top for over a minute before falling to the mat and narrowly escaping a beating at the hands of the other wrestlers. Jeff Hardy's TNA music then hit as the 3-time former WWE Champion came to the ring through the crowd and brawled with Homicide, knocking him out with a metal folding chair before climing the Asylum cage from the outside and sitting on top as the crowd cheered. Hardy was greeted backstage by Shannon Moore. (Jeff Hardy and Shannon Moore's return to TNA after a 4-year absence.)
ODB pinned Tara with a rollup to win the TNA Knockout Title in 2:40. ODB held the tights during the pinfall, exposing Tara's butt enough that TNA had to cut away to a crowd shot during the pin. After the match Tara attacked ODB and laid her out with the Widow's Peak. She then put Poison, her tarantula, on ODB and walked away.
Awesome Kong & Hamada defeated Taylor Wilde & Sarita for the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles in 9:40 when Kong pinned Sarita after a Missile Dropkick / Powerbomb combination. The crowd chanted "This is awesome" late in the match. During the match cameras cut backstage to show Jeremy Borash standing over the fallen Motor City Machine Guns, who apparently were jumped and knocked out.
Matt Morgan & Hernandez defeated Raven & Dr. Stevie in about 30 seconds when Morgan pinned Stevie after hitting the Carbon Footprint. The win earned Morgan & Hernandez a TNA World Tag Team Title shot at Genesis.
D'Angelo Dinero pinned Desmond Wolfe with a Small Package in about 2:40. Dinero then celebrated with some fans at ringside as Wolfe looked furious in the ring.
Samoa Joe defeated Abyss in 4:50 when he forced Abyss to submit to the Kokina Clutch.
A.J. Styles pinned Kurt Angle in about 20:00 to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Title after hitting the Styles Clash for a fourth time and then hitting a second Springboard 450 Splash. The match was back-and-forth throughout, with fans chanting for both wrestlers and yelling "This is awesome," "This is wrestling," and "Who needs Bret?" in reference to Bret Hart's WWE return on Monday Night Raw that night. After about 16:00 Ric Flair walked to the entrance ramp and watched for a while before returning to the back without saying or doing anything.

Xplosion - Eric Young pinned Consequences Creed after hitting a low blow and a Piledriver.

January 14 Impact! (1.26) - Opened with a recap of the previous week's special live show and a rundown of the Genesis card. After the opening match the Nasty Boys were seen trashing Team 3D's locker room as Brother Ray & Brother Devon pounded on the door trying to get inside. Hulk Hogan then commented on Kurt Angle's TNA World Heavyweight Title shot at Genesis and promised the debut of a "major" superstar at the event. Angle then came to the ring and put over A.J. Styles as a worthy Champion. Styles came out and they shook hands, but Styles was ambushed by a masked man after Angle left the ring. The mystery man took off his mask and revealed himself as the returning Tomko. Cut backstage, where Christy Hemme interviewed the Band until Bubba the Love Sponge kicked Hemme out and took her place. Bubba asked about Mick Foley, but the Band ignored him and said "whatever happens backstage stays backstage." After the Knockouts match Styles found Eric Bischoff in Hogan's office and demanded a match with Tomko, which Bischoff made the main event. Various promo packages aired throughout the show with Tomko talking about his relationship with Styles and his career. Beer Money was then seen looking for Birschoff, and after a commercial Jeremy Borash interviewed Bischoff. He asked where Foley was, and Bischoff said that if Borash really cared for Foley he'd find him and warn him to leave the Impact Zone. Beer Money then entered and said that they had a problem with Bischoff's "boys" last week. Bischoff took a sip of James Storm's beer and said he'd think about giving them a match against Kevin Nash & Scott Hall at Genesis. Later Sean Morley came to the ring and said that he and TNA were made for each other "because I used to make my living with a different kind of T&A." Morley said that TNA should start a film division starring him. Christopher Daniels then came out and welcomed Morley to TNA. Daniels started to pitch a screenplay to Morley but then attacked him and hit the Best Moonsault Ever. Daniels ran off when Morley recovered and got a few shots in. Later Ric Flair was shown arriving in a limo, and after that Jeff Jarrett stormed into Hogan & Bischoff's office with his lawyer. Jarrett said that he'd built TNA on his back and "the young talent in this company are worthless." Jarrett accused Hogan of defamation of character, and Bischoff then monologued on how Dixie Carter saved TNA because Jarrett and his father Jerry almost ruined the company. Hogan said "I was hired to run TNA, but there's nothing in my contract that says I can't kick your ass." Jarrett and his lawyer backed up and left, though Jarrett said they hadn't heard the last of him.

Max & Jeremy Buck defeated Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley after hitting More Bang For Your Buck. During the match Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, & Syxx-Pac were shown walking around backstage.

After the match Love attacked all three Beautiful People and screamed at Sky for replacing her with Von Erich.
Brother Ray & Brother Devon defeated Jay Lethal & Consequences Creed when Ray pinned Creed after hitting the 3D. Before the match Bobby Lashley (with Kristal) came to the ring and destroyed Lethal Consequences, and Kristal then said they would "take out every member of the TNA roster" until they got a meeting with Hulk Hogan. Team 3D then came out for their match, hit the 3D on Creed, and then cut a promo on the Nasty Boys. Ray asked why Hogan associated himself with "those two fatasses" and got out an axe. After a commercial break Team 3D got back to their locker room to chop down the door but found it unlocked. When they entered the room they immediately dry-heaved and complained of the smell when they were attacked from behind by Brian Knobs & Jerry Sags. The Nasty Boys left them laying and laughed as they left.
Matt Morgan & Hernandez vs. James Storm & Robert Roode was a no contest when Rob Terry interfered and attacked Morgan & Hernandez, while the Band then came out and attacked Beer Money. Security tried to hold them back, but Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, & Syxx-Pac tossed them aside and left Beer Money laying. Eric Bischoff then came out and told Storm & Roode to "be careful what you wish for because the next round is on me." Bischoff then confronted the Band about their actions and sarcastically asked, "What am I going to do with you guys?" Pac said "I thought this was what you wanted?" but Bischoff denied it and made Beer Money vs. Hall & Nash for the PPV. Sting was then shown watching from the rafters.
Desmond Wolfe defeated Samoa Joe. D'Angelo Dinero did guest commentary during the match.
A.J. Styles pinned Tomko to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Title. Ric Flair did guest commentary during the match, and Kurt Angle came out to shake his hand.

Bischoff then put Jarrett in a match with Mr. Anderson and denied Jarrett's request for a couple of weeks to get back in ring shape. Hogan told Bischoff to ease up. After another commercial, we saw the first of several segments with Ric Flair and TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles entertaining some women in their private locker room. Flair told Styles that he did not need to defend the Title for another 30 days, so it was time to buy some custom-made suits and party. Later, Mike Tenay called Team 3D and the Nasty Boys to the ring for a confrontation.

Hebner said he did it for a paycheck from Ric Flair, and Hogan suspended him. After another commercial and a couple of short segments Angle came to the ring and said that Styles disappointed all the TNA wrestlers and fans. Hogan then came to the ring and said Angle owed him an apology, which Angle agreed with. Angle did apologize and he and Hogan shook hands. After Hogan left the ring, Angle was attacked by Scott Hall and Syxx-Pac, who were then thrown out of the Impact Zone by security. After the X-Division matches, Foley and Bischoff met back in the office and Foley said he would rather "pick up crap" than work for Bischoff. Bischoff then threatened to fire Abyss and Jeremy Borash if Foley did not fall in line, and then told the camera man to walk with him down to the Styles/Flair locker room. He complemented Flair on getting a good attorney to draw up his TNA contract, which was made with Dixie Carter before Hogan & Bischoff arrived, and then told Styles that he would not have 30 days off. The Jarrett/Anderson match was the main event.

February 4 Impact! - Opened with the Mr. Anderson vs. Brutus Magnus match. After the bout and a commercial, Christy Hemme interviewed Kurt Angle backstage about his match with Tomko. Angle dismissed that topic and then accused Hulk Hogan of looking him in the eye, accepting his apology, and then having his "jackals" Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac attack him from behind. He promised to confront Hogan later in the show. Eric Bischoff then came to the ring and was soon followed by Mick Foley. They again discussed their differences, with Foley noting that he likes everyone in the wrestling business but Bischoff. Bischoff again threatened to fire Abyss and Jeremy Borash if Foley did not fall in line. After the segment Abyss and Borash were shown backstage watching on a monitor, and Abyss was terrified of losing his job. Borash said he had only come by to pick up his last paycheck. Next was another Hemme interview, this time with TNA Knockout Champion Tara. Tara complemented Angelina Love on her change in attitude but vowed to beat her. Next came the World Tag Team Title match and then the Samoa Joe/Jesse Neal squash. After the matches Hemme caught up with Hulk Hogan in the back and told him about Kurt Angle's comments. Hogan told her that he would be easy to find. After the A.J. Styles/D'Angelo Dinero match and post-match brawl with Samoa Joe and Ric Flair, Hemme interviewed Angelina Love. When asked about the Beautiful People Love said "I am awesome at revenge." Next Eric Bischoff interrupted a conversation between Kevin Nash and Eric Young and asked who Young was. He introduced himself to Bischoff, who then quickly told him to leave the room. He asked Nash to "mop up" Foley in a No DQ match, and Nash asked for contracts for Hall & Syxx-Pac in return. Bischoff called them "screw-ups" and told Nash to disassociate himself with them. After a commercial Hemme interviewed Foley, who said he did not have his ring gear and had really forgotten about his problems with Nash. However, the match stirred up memories of Nash sending him across the country to meet with Lou Ferrigno instead of Hulk Hogan, and he promised to take care of Nash in the ring. Abyss interrupted to ask if Foley would cost him his job, and Foley told him to calm down and not interfere in the match. After the Angle/Tomko match and a recap of TNA's recent European tour, Nash came to Hogan's office to ask about about Hall & Syxx-Pac. Hogan said he already gave them too many chances and told Nash "don't let them suck you in." After the Knockout Title match Kurt Angle stormed into Hogan's office and repeated his accusations about Hall & Syxx-Pac. Hogan noted that he wouldn't even give them TNA contracts, much less higher them to be his goons. Angle said he'd heard too many horror stories about working with Hogan and he would not let Hogan screw with him. The Nash/Foley match, taped on January 20, was the main event.
D'Angelo Dinero pinned TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles with a Small Package in a non-Title match.

February 11 Impact! - Opened with Hulk Hogan commenting on TNA's momentum, Kurt Angle's temper, and the Band's beatdown on Kevin Nash the week before (actually filmed just before this segment.) Hogan announced that the Impact Zone was "on lock down" and Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac would not be allowed in the building. TNA Global Champion Eric Young then came to the ring and asked Hogan to let them in so he could get some revenge on behalf of his friend Nash. Hogan complemented Young but said he would have to go find Hall & Syxx-Pac outside if he wanted a fight. After a commercial Hall & Syxx-Pac were shown sneaking around outside the building. After the D'Angelo Dinero/Orlando Jordan match Jeff Jarrett had a meeting with Eric Bischoff and asked for a spot in the 8 Card Stud Tournament. Bischoff said no and told Jarrett to hit the gym before cutting away to the Matt Morgan/Suicide match. After that Mick Foley came to Bischoff's office and reluctantly agreed to "play ball" if Bischoff would guarantee that Abyss and Jeremy Borash would be taken care of. Bischoff said he'd put Abyss in the 8 Card Stud Tournament, but in a match against Foley. He warned that if Foley tried to lay down for Abyss, Abyss would lose his mask on Impact! next week. Christy Hemme then interviewed Mr. Anderson and Kurt Angle in the locker room about their tag team match that night and their match against each other in the tournament at Against All Odds. Angle warned that he would snap Anderson's ankle if he tried anything during the tag match, and Anderson mocked Angle after he walked away. Angle then went to Eric Young and warned him to stay away from Hall & Syxx-Pac, saying he would take care of them himself. He also warned Young that Hulk Hogan would be lurking in the shadows. After the X-Division Title match Hemme interviewed TNA Knockout Champion Tara and Angelina Love, and they said their handicap match with the Beautiful People would "get really ugly." After that match Hemme interviewed Desmond Wolfe, who insulted the other three competitors in his tag team match later that night. He referred to his partner, Hernandez, as "Supermaxipad" and called Mr. Anderson "that guy who loves the sound of his own voice." After that match and another commercial, Samoa Joe came to the ring and called out TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles in a segment actually filmed on January 19. Joe and Styles questioned each other's integrity, with Joe referring to Ric Flair as Styles' "sugar daddy." That led to a brawl, which ended when Flair hit Joe with a low blow and security hit the ring to break up the fight. Bischoff later confronted Styles and Flair backstage and said he made himself the special guest referee for the World Title match at Against All Odds. In the final segment of the show, Angle was shown hunting for the Band backstage and was confronted by Hogan. Hogan predicted that Hall & Syxx-Pac would head for the ring, so Angle went to the ring and called them out. Hall & Syxx-Pac did in fact hit the ring and jumped Angle, who got Hall in the Ankle Lock until Syxx-Pac took him out with a pair of brass knuckles. Hogan then came to the ring and Hall handed him the brass knuckles to take his own shot at Angle, but Hogan instead took out Hall & Syxx-Pac and cleared the ring as the show ended.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - February 15, 2010
At a press conference before the Impact! taping, TNA President Dixie Carter and Hulk Hogan officially announced that Impact! would move to Monday nights beginning March 8 and would compete head-to-head with WWE Monday Night Raw from 9-11 pm ET. The news actually broke the night before with various entertainment news outlets.
Xplosion - Rhino pinned Jay Lethal after hitting the Gore.
February 18 Impact! - Opened with a recap of Against All Odds (AAO) before D'angleo Dinero came to the ring and talked about his victory in the 8 Card Stud Tournament. Dinero hyped himself and referred to Ric Flair and TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles as "Dick Flair" and "Arthur Jackson." Styles and Flair then came to the ring with four women escorting them, and Flair asked Dinero "Can you read and write?" He then showed Dinero the Armani label in his suit and said "I was bling before there was bling." Flair told Dinero that when he was a child he wished he could be just like the Nature Boy, but he can't because he's a common street thug. Styles eventually got involved as well as the two slides slung insults back and forth. Dinero eventually went after Styles but was beaten down by the Champion and his mentor. Flair put Dinero's ankle in a metal folding chair and stomped it, and Styles then put him in the Figure 4 Leglock until security broke up the mugging. After the opening Tara/Daffney match Mick Foley met with Eric Bischoff and apologized for "my performance" in his match with Abyss at AAO. Bischoff told him that the match was great and he was pleased by Foley's effort, so he arranged for him to have a "Mick makeover" on Bischoff's dime. Two fashion consultants measured Foley during the conversation and then took him shopping. After they left Bischoff picked up the phone and told somebody to bring Abyss to his office. After the Samoa Joe/Orlando Jordan match Abyss did meet with Bischoff, who tore into Abyss for not using the barbed wire-covered bat against Foley and he was told to do. Abyss said he didn't want to hurt Foley, but he did use thumbtacks to bring the carnage Bischoff wanted. Bischoff reiterated that he wanted the bat, not the tacks, and said that he would take away Abyss's mask that night. He said that all doors out of the Impact Zone were locked and guarded by security, so Abyss could not run. Abyss ran out of the room anyway, and cameras moved on to Christy Hemme interviewing Eric Young in the locker room. Young said that Kevin Nash was looking for a face-to-face meeting with Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac, and that Nash was in a foul mood. We went back to Bischoff, who entered Jeff Jarrett's locker room and handed him the barbed wire-covered bat. Bischoff told Jarretty to use it on Abyss in their match, and Jarrett aggreed. After that match (recap is below) and the Beer Money Inc./British Invasion match, the Abyss/Hogan meeting happened. Hogan angrily told Abyss to top being afraid all the time and to start being a monster. He talked about the monster of Hulkamania and showed Abyss his WWE Hall of Fame ring. He talked about the ring representing his 30 years of sacrifice and achievements and then gave it to Abyss, who was stunned. Hogan told Abyss the ring would make him invincible and allow him to be ten times the wrestler Hogan ever was. Hogan then left the office as Abyss appeared to find new confidence in himself, which was indicated by Abyss screaming loudy like the old James Mitchell-era Abyss. After the long Kurt Angle/Mr. Anderson segment, Jeremy Borash attempted to interview Samoa Joe about his loss to Orlando Jordan. Joe refused to answer any questions and was then almost run over by a white van. Four men in masks then jumped out of the van and threw Joe in the back of it before speeding away. Kevin Nash and Eric Young then came to the ring, and Nash talked about carrying Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac for years and keeping them employed. He said he bought a black suit about 10 years ago because he knew he'd have to bury one of them one day, referencing their past problems with drug use. He then called them to the ring, and they appeared from the crowd. Young immediately attacked Syxx-Pac outside the ring as Hall climbed into the ring with Nash. Hall flicked his toothpick at Nash, and Nash retaliated with one big punch that sent Hall to the mat. The ring then filled with security and referees who held the four men apart as Hulk Hogan came to the entranceway and silently watched.
TNA Knockout Champion Tara defeated Daffney by disqualification in a non-Title match when Daffney hit Tara with a toolbox she found under the ring. After the referee called for the bell Daffney continued to assault Tara, eventually taking her back to the announcers' area and dropping a guardrail on her. Daffney then smashed a metal chair repeatedly into the guardrail until she was drug away by Dr. Stevie. Tara, apparently unconscious, was tended to by medics and referees.
Orlando Jordan pinned Samoa Joe after hitting a Lungblower from the second turnbuckle. Before the match Joe was confronted by Eric Bischoff about his performance at Against All Odds, and Bischoff told him to "show me that Samoan pride I hear so much about." Joe dominated the early portion of the match, but Jordan was able to counter the Muscle Buster attempt into the finishing move. Jordan was escorted to the ring by two valets -- one male and one female -- though nothing on the broadcast indicated their association with Jordan.
Frankie Kazarian, the Amazing Red, & Max & Jeremy Buck defeated TNA X-Division Champion Doug Williams, Brian Kendrick, Chris Sabin, & Alex Shelley in an 8-man tag team match when Kazarian pinned Williams after a springboard DDT. (Kazarian's first TNA match without the Suicide costume in 21 months.)
Jeff Jarrett vs. Abyss was no contest when Eric Bischoff came to ringside and told Jarrett to use the barbed wire-covered baseball bat. When Jarrett refused, Bischoff called out Desmond Wolfe, Raven, Rhino, Tomko, and Homicide to beat down both Jarrett and Abyss. The five heels then held Abyss down so Bischoff could take off his mask, but just as he went to do so Hulk Hogan's music hit and he came to the ring. He told Abyss to "get your ass back to my office" and glared at Bischoff, who stared at his feet.
James Storm & Robert Roode defeated Brutus Magnus & TNA Global Champion Rob Terry when Roode pinned Magnus after hitting the DWI double-team move. After the match Magnus blamed Terry for the loss and said he was not worthy of his belt, so Magnus took it from him and slapped him across the face. Terry responded with a big clothesline and held his Title high in the air.
Kurt Angle defeated Christopher Daniels by submission with the Ankle Lock in about 3:00. After the match Angle addressed Mr. Anderson about their match at Against All Odds, where Anderson cut Angle open with the medallion he wore to the ring. Angle explained that the medallion is actually a large dog tag given to him by a U.S. soldier at Fort Hood, Texas. Angle said that he'd had a very bad year and a half, mentioning his divorce and his arrest for allegedly stalking ex-girlfiend Rhaka Khan. The crowd chanted "Angle" when he got choked up, and Angle thanked them and said "I needed that." He then moved back to the dog tag and said it was given to him by a soldier who said he'd heard about Angle's problems via the Internet and television. The dog tag is enscribed with a poem called "The Warrior," and Angle read the text. He said that Anderson, by using the dog tag to cut him open and then spitting on it, did not just disrespect and cut open and spit on Angle, he also attacked the American soldiers and the country as a whole. Mr. Anderson's music then hit and he got his microphone on the entrance ramp. He made fun of Angle for choking back tears and called the dog tag "a piece of tin." He told Angle to "come get some" and Angle obliged. The two exchanged punches until Anderson got the better of the exchange and hit Angle in the head with his microphone. He then told Angle, "Welcome to Total Nonstop Anderson ...Anderson."

Brother Ray & Brother Devon defeated Brian Knobs & Jerry Sags in a Tables match when Sags was put through a table with the 3D. Late in the match Jimmy Hart threw Knobs the motorcycle helmet to use on Devon, but Jesse Neal took the helmet from Hart, hit Knobs in the gut with it, and threw the helmet to Devon, who used it on Sags. The announcers mentioned that Knobs was working with a dislocated shoulder, which hung noticably low during the match.
Kazarian pinned Brian Kendrick after hitting the Flux Capacitor to earn a TNA X-Division Title shot at Destination X.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - February 16, 2010
February 25 Impact! - Opened with Abyss showing off Hulk Hogan's Hall of Fame ring to some of the younger wrestlers in the back, including Jay Lethal and the Amazing Red. After a recap of last week's events Ric Flair and TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles came to the ring and bragged about injuring D'Angelo Dinero's ankle last week. Flair then blasted Hogan for giving Abyss his ring and said to the fans, "That would be like giving my ring to one of you!" Abyss then came to the ring using Hogan's "American Made" WCW music, which angered Flair. Flair told Abyss that he was worthless and nowhere near a Hall of Fame wrestler, and then repeatedly called him a clown. Flair told Abyss he could not shine Styles' boots, and Abyss agreed. "I can't shine A.J.'s boots, because I'm not a shoeshine boy." He then got in Flair's face and Styles stepped in to continue the badgering of Abyss. He told him to take that ring off before he disgraced Hogan's name, and Flair told Abyss to put the ring on Styles' finger. Hogan then came to the ring and told Flair and Styles to lay off, but Flair then lit into Hogan for giving up his ring. Flair and Styles removed their jackets, seemingly for a fight, but when Hogan and Abyss appeared game the Champion and his mentor left the ring. (The segment was taped on February 15.) After the Tables match Mick Foley burst into Eric Bischoff's office and accused him of intentionally sending Foley out of the Impact Zone to go shopping so Bischoff could humiliate Abyss. Bischoff called Foley paranoid and said that everything worked out well for Abyss, who was "in a good place" with Hogan's ring. Foley reluctantly agreed and calmed down. Bischoff then asked him why he wasn't wearing the new suit Bischoff bought for him, and Foley said he would have to get it from the hotel. After the knockouts match Jeremy Borash interviewed TNA World Tag Team Champions Hernandez & Matt Morgan backstage, and JB asked about their match at Against All Odds where Morgan held the tights for the win. They said they had put that incident behind them, and were now looking to defend their Titles against the best. Right after that Beer Money Inc. came to the ring (in a segment taped on February 15) and asked why Bischoff and Hogan were keeping the best tag team in wrestling off of television. Hernandez then came out and offered them a Title shot at Destination X, which Robert Roode accepted for his team. Borash then interviewed Kevin Nash and Eric Young backstage, and they said they asked Hogan for some TV time to go outside and "bust up" Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac. Young predicted that it would be the highest-rated segment in Impact! history because everyone wanted to see Hall & Syxx-Pac get what they deserve. Back to Bischoff's office, with Jeff Jarrett being the one to bust in this time. He haranged Bischoff for sending six "goons" out to attack him when he wouldn't use the barbed wire bat on Abyss and said it would take more than that to drive him out of his own company. Bischoff actually apologized for treaking Jarrett so badly and asked him for a meeting in the ring so that Bischoff could make things right. After a commercial break and a storyline recap, Bischoff did come to the ring and call out Jarrett. Jarrett's entrance music and video played and his pyro went off, giving him his first proper entrance in months. Bischoff said he was willing to admit his mistakes, and asked the fans to give Jarrett an ovation. He then called for a producer to give him the barbed wire bat, and he told Jarrett that he did the right thing in not using the weapon on Abyss. "However, you did not do the right thing for Eric Bischoff." He then ordered Jarrett to head to catering and grill hamburgers for the wrestlers while wearing a hair net. After another commercial Morgan confronted Hernandez about giving Beer Money a Title shot and told him that they need "to be smart about this" to keep their Titles. Hernandez promised to consult his partner before making decisions like that in the future, and Morgan looked frustrated. After the Kazarian/Kendrick match Christy Hemme interviewed Mr. Anderson backstage about his shot at the TNA Global Title. Anderson, who's own microphone was dropped from the ceiling, called himself unstoppable and said he would beat Rob Terry even though "he's as strong as six gorillas." "I've actually been in the ring with six gorillas, and I beat them all! It was by DQ, but it's still a checkmark in the win column." Kurt Angle was then shown heading to the Impact Zone as well, and Terry was stopped by Brutus Magnus on his way to the ring. Magnus said Terry would regret "biting the hand that feeds," and Terry almost broke his finger. After the Global Title match and another commercial, Nash and Young headed to the backlot for their brawl with Hall & Syxx-Pac. Young immediately went after Syxx-Pac, while Nash was hit from behind with a pipe-wielding Hall. Hall smashed Nash's bad knee and then used the pipe on Young, and Syxx-Pac spray painted "4 Life" on Young's back. Back to Bischoff's office again, with Mick Foley arriving in a trench coat. At Bischoff's insistence Foley took off the coat to reveal his tailor-made suit, complete with a mustard stain on the lapel. Foley explained that he was having a hot dog in catering when he saw Jarrett flipping burgers. The surprise made him squeeze the hot dog too hard and cause a mustard squirt. Bischoff then offered to send Foley to an etiquette coach, and Foley accepted.
ODB defeated Daffney by disqualification when Daffney trapped ODB's leg against the ring post and smashed the metal ring steps into it repeatedly. She then pulled out a broom and slammed that into her leg as well until Dr. Stevie came out and restrained her. During the match a split screen showed Christy Hemme interviewing TNA Knockout Champion Tara about her altercation with Daffney last week. Tara said "If you were trying to get my attention, you have it."
Rob Terry pinned Mr. Anderson after a Running Powerslam to retain the TNA Global Title. Before the match ever began Anderson called for his microphone on the entrance ramp and ran down Kurt Angle. He mocked Angle's "Warrior" medallion and said he had dog tags of his own, which were given to him by a Vietnamese soldier's widow. Angle appeared behind Anderson and smashed a metal folding chair into his back, apparently knocking Anderson out cold. Angle then told Terry to come get his opponent, so Terry came up the ramp and then carried Anderson's limp body to the ring. The referee rang the bell, and one move later the "match" was over.
Abyss pinned Desmond Wolfe (with Chelsea) after hitting the Black Hole Slam. Immediately after the pinfall Ric Flair and TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles ran to the ring and attacked Abyss. Wolfe then joined in for a 3-on-1 attack, and Abyss was handcuffed to the top rope. Hulk Hogan then came to the ring and laid everyone out with punches until Flair landed a chop block and Styles threw a flurry of punches from the mount position. They continued to gang up on Hogan, splitting him open, until Abyss broke the handcuffs and chased the heels off. After a commercial Hogan announced that he was pulling Ric Flair out of retirement for a tag team match on the March 8 live Impact! It would be Flair & Styles vs. Abyss & Hogan himself. Abyss and Hogan played to the crowd and posed as Impact! faded to black.
March 5 Impact! - Opened with Ric Flair & TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles coming to the ring with four young ladies in tow. Flair called out Hulk Hogan and said he and Styles wanted to apologize for jumping Hogan the week before. Hogan came to the ring with Abyss, and Flair offered Hogan his choice of the four women in the ring. Hogan said that he wanted nothing from Flair, not even "one of your shots of Viagra, brother," and Abyss told him that "Hulk Hogan and Abyssamania" would run wild on Monday's live Impact! Styles then interjected, asking Hogan why he would risk his reputation by going up against the current king of wrestling. Eric Bischoff came out and interrupted to announce a Four Corners match for Styles' World Title that night. After commercial Jeremy Borash interviewed Desmond Wolfe about the Four Corners match, and Wolfe talked about his respect for Styles and used a lot of British euphimisms. Chelsea then told Wolfe she wanted him to take Hulk Hogan's Hall of Fame ring from Abyss and give it to her, and Wolfe agreed. "What Chelsea wants," he said, "Chelsea gets." We cut to Bischoff's office, where Jeff Jarrett interrupted a phone call and said he wanted to get back to the business of pro wrestling. Bischoff made him TNA's head janitor for the night and told him to go clean the men's room. After the 4-way tag team match, Bischoff called Sean Morley and referee Slick Johnson to his office and told Morley to go to the men's room and have a Falls Count Anywhere match with Jarrett. After two short segments where Kurt Angle tried to talk Hogan out of wrestling and Mick Foley began his etiquette class, Morley attacked Jarrett in the men's room and that "match" occurred. After that Christy Hemme interviewed D'Angelo Dinero about his injured ankle and told him about the Four Corners main event. Dinero noted that his doctor would not clear him to wrestle, but said he would still win the match. He also threatened to "reach way back in the 1980s" and find a pimp slap just for "Dick Flair" if he interfered. After the British Invasion match Bischoff visited Jarrett in the trainer's room as he got his shoulder looked at. He said that he gave Jarrett what he wanted, a match, and called Jarrett "picky" when he said he wanted a real match. Bischoff told Jarrett that he would give him a real match ... that night. After another Foley etiquette lesson, Mr. Anderson came to the ring dressed as Kurt Angle with a kitchen pan hanging from his neck with the word "loser" written on it. Anderson, playing Angle, called himself "the most frequently injured wrestler in the world" and said he had broken his neck 17 times from things like tying his shoe and using the bathroom. He accused Angle of not caring about the U.S. military and just using them to make himself seem like a good guy. Angle attacked Anderson at this point, but Anderson got the better hand and used Angle's own Olympic Slam to lay him out. Anderson then stole the "Warrior" necklace and left. Abyss then took his turn at trying to talk Hogan out of wrestling, and Hogan said he'd be fine because Abyss would protect him. Footage was then shown of Angelina Love being attacked and whipped by the Beautiful People during a backstage photo shoot, and Love came to the ring and called out Velvet Sky. Love attacked Sky until Madison Rayne & Lacey Von Erich made the save and held Love down for another whipping with the studded belt. A camera close-up showed welts on Love's body from the belt. Bubba the Love Sponge then took his turn at trying to talk Hogan out of wrestling, noting that he had nothing to prove and had promised his family that he wouldn't wrestle again, and we saw another Foley etiquette lesson. After the Jarrett/Tomko match Bischoff also tried to talk Hogan out of wrestling, and Hogan repeated that he had to do this as "a one-shot deal" so he could respect himself.
James Storm & Robert Roode defeated TNA World Tag Team Champions Matt Morgan & Hernandez, Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley, and Max & Jeremy Buck in a non-Title 4-way match when Roode pinned Morgan with a rollup after Storm hit the Last Call Superkick. Morgan had just tagged himself in and hit a Double Chokeslam on Generation Me, which he then bragged about to his partner, Hernandez. While Morgan's back was turned Roode tagged in and Beer Money Inc. picked up the win. Morgan & Hernandez continued to bicker after the match.
Sean Morley pinned Jeff Jarrett in an impromptu Falls Count Anywhere match in the men's bathroom after repeatedly throwing Jarrett shoulder-first into walls and then slamming a door on his shoulder repeatedly.
TNA Global Champion Rob Terry pinned TNA X-Division Champion Doug Williams in a non-Title match after hitting a Spinebuster. After the match Brutus Magnus attacked Terry.
Jeff Jarrett pinned Tomko with a Sunset Flip. After the finish Eric Bischoff was shown watching backstage and shaking his head in disappointment.
A.J. Styles defeated D'Angelo Dinero, Abyss, and Desmond Wolfe in a Four Corners match to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Title. The referee stopped the match when Styles had Dinero in the Figure 4 Leglock and Dinero refused to submit. After the match Styles, Wolfe, and Ric Flair triple-teamed Dinero until Abyss interjected. Flair then pulled a barbed wire-covered baseball bat from under the ring and hit Abyss with it, prompting Hulk Hogan to "run" to the ring to make the save." Hogan got the bat from Flair and hit the Nature Boy in the head with it twice. Flair bled heavily and Hogan and Abyss cleaned house on the security team that rushed the ring. Hogan, Abyss, and Dinero dared Flair, Styles, and Wolfe to come back to the ring for more as the show came to a close.

March 8 Impact! (0.98) - Debut of Impact!'s new opening video package and music. Opened with Mike Tenay & Taz running down the show before Hulk Hogan & Abyss came to the ring for their match with Ric Flair & TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles. TNA President Dixie Carter was shown several times in the crowd with a huge smile on her face as the fans went crazy and chanted "T-N-A" and "Ho-gan, Ho-gan." After the match ended in a no contest due to Sting's interference, Carter tried to confront Sting backstage. Sting pushed her up against the wall by the throat and told her, "I owe you nothing, Dixie, nothing!" Jeremy Borash then interviewed Flair & Styles backstage, and Flair promised to send Hogan & Abyss out in an ambulance. Brief footage was shown of Abyss screaming "Why, Sting, why?" and Brooke Hogan crying after seeing her father get bloodied and beaten. After the X-Division segment Carter told Borash that since Sting just signed a new TNA contract, she was putting him in a match that night against a mystery opponent. After the Knockout Tag Team Title match Christy Hemme interviewed D'Angelo Dinero about his match with Desmond Wolfe, which was apparently cancelled after Wolfe attacked Dinero during the interview and re-injured his ankle. Tenay and Taz then wondered again about Sting's opponent, although Taz tipped off the surprise by asking, "Hey Tenay, what were you doing at 4:20 this afternoon?" Immediately after the Rob Van Dam/Sting/Hogan segment, Kevin Nash & Eric Young came to the ring and lured Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac to the ring with a contract for Destination X. Hall agreed to the match on the condition that if his team won, they would get "fat money contracts" from TNA. Eric Bischoff appeared on-screen and agreed, with the caveat that if Nash & Young won then Hall & Pac would have to leave TNA forever. All four parties agreed to the stipulation, and Hall and Nash shook hands. When Young tried to shake Pac's hand, Pac slapped him hard across the face and Young quickly speared Pac into the mat and the two exchanged punches until security pulled them apart. Bischoff then told security to get Nash and Hall out of the building and to let Young "beat his bitch ass." Backstage cameras then showed a Humvee full of U.S. Army soldiers pulling up to the Impact Zone before cutting to commercial. After the break around 20 soldiers, all wearing combat fatigues, lined up along the entrance ramp before Kurt Angle's music hit and he made his way to the ring. The soldiers then surrounded the ring as Angle talked about their heroism and bravery. Mr. Anderson then appeared on the big screen and insulted the soldiers from the backstage interview area, calling them "high school dropouts." Upon seeing Anderson, Angle immediately ran to the back and attacked Anderson in mid-sentence. He brought Anderson back to the ring and laid a beating on him until Anderson wrapped Angle's "Warrior" medal around his fist and got a good punch in on Angle. Anderson tried to flee up the ramp, but was blocked by several of the soldiers. Angle regained his composure and threw Anderson back into the ring and beat on him some more. Angle then threw Anderson out of the ring on the three sides surrounded by soldiers and allowed them to lay a group beating on Anderson before throwing him back in the ring for more. The soldiers finally all came into the ring and lifted Angle on their soldiers as he held an American flag high and reclaimed his "Warrior" medal. Cameras suddenly cut back to Hogan's office, where Bubba the Love Sponge again tried to talk Hogan out of facing Flair & Styles again in the main event. Hogan, still covered in his own blood, said that he had to do it. Earl Hebner then showed up and asked for a second chance. After some convincing from Bubba, Hogan told Hebner to referee his match that night and made him promise to stop the match if Hogan was putting himself in danger. Hebner promised and shook Hogan's hand. After the Jeff Jarrett/Beer Money Inc. match Hogan's daughter Brooke took her turn at trying to talk him out of the match. When Hogan said he had to do it Brooke made him promise that this would be his last match.
Hulk Hogan & Abyss vs. Ric Flair & TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles was a no contest when the lights went out and Sting appeared in the ring. Sting then attacked Abyss & Hogan with his baseball bat and stood aside as Flair & Styles attacked them with chairs, cutting both Hogan & Abyss open. Sting left as the beatdown continued, and Flair & Styles then headed up the ramp as well. Hogan took the microphone and said the match would be restarted later on with No DQ rules. Flair & Styles tried to come back to the ring to assault Hogan & Abyss again but were stopped by security. (Sting's first appearance in two months.)
Doug Williams defeated Kazarian and Christopher Daniels in a 3-way match to retain the TNA X-Division Title when he pinned Daniels with the Chaos Theory Suplex. The match was made by Eric Bischoff after Kazarian, then Daniels, and then Wiliams came to the ring and talked about "reigniting the torch of the X-Division." After the match Shannon Moore ran into the ring and attacked Williams until he escaped the ring. Bischoff then announced that Moore would face Williams for the Title at Destination X. (Moore's first appearance in two months.)
Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne defeated TNA Knockout Champion Tara & Angelina Love and Taylor Wilde & Sarita in a 3-way match for the vacant TNA Knockout Tag Team Titles. Mike Tenay explained before the match that Awesome Kong & Hamada were stripped of the Titles for failure to defend in 30 days. The finish came when Daffney snuck into the ring and hit Tara with her championship belt while referee Slick Johnson was distracted by Lacey Von Erich, enabling Rayne to pin Tara. The Beautiful People then celebrated backstage with Jeremy Borash, and Lacey Von Erich asked "Does this mean I'm a champion too?" Rayne said yes, apparently implying that a "Freebird Rule" would let any two of the three Beautiful People defend the Titles. Borash then brought out a bottle of champagne and some glasses and Sky wound up pouring champagne over his head.
Rob Van Dam pinned Sting in about 0:15 after hitting the Rolling Thunder senton splash. RVD came in through the crowd and hit Sting with a kick from the top turnbuckle before the match even started. After the bell rang RVD quickly hit the Rolling Thunder for the win. After the match Sting assaulted RVD with the baseball bat and struck him at least ten times. Hulk Hogan tried to come to the ring to fight Sting off but was held back by security and Bubba the Love Sponge. Hogan finally got around them and tried to come in the ring, but Sting slammed the bat into his midsection and security then tried to escort him backstage. Sting followed, however, and took out several guards before hitting Hogan again with the bat. The crowd loudly chanted "R-V-D" throughout the entire segment. (Rob Van Dam's TNA debut.)
Eric Young pinned Syxx-Pac after hitting a Piledriver. Both men fought in street clothes as Eric Bischoff made the impromptu match after Pac slapped Young hard across the face when Young tried to shake his hand. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall were banned from the Impact Zone during the match.
James Storm & Robert Roode pinned Jeff Jarrett in a Handicap match after hitting the Driving While Investing. The match started during the commercial break after Jarrett confronted Storm backstage about accepting the match. Storm said that he and Roode volunteered for it, and Jarrett ran down a list of things he did for Beer Money Inc. as founder of TNA. Storm said "It's all about what you can do for me now" and Jarrett attacked him until Roode ran in and blindsided Jarrett. Taz hypothesized that Beer Money took the match just to get noticed and get more air time on Impact!, though Storm & Roode acted like heels during the match.
Hulk Hogan & Abyss defeated Ric Flair & TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles in a No DQ match when Abyss pinned Styles after hitting the Black Hole Slam. Hogan and Flair both bled profusely during the match, especially Flair. After the fall Desmond Wolfe came out and attacked Hogan & Abyss until D'Angelo Dinero tried to make the save. Styles took out Dinero's injured leg and he, Wolfe, and Flair appeared to have things well in hand until Jeff Hardy ran down the ramp and cleaned house. The broadcast ended as Hardy climbed to the top rope and prepared to hit the Swanton Bomb on Styles at 11:08 eastern time.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - March 9, 2010
March 15 Impact! (0.85) - Opened with a recap of the previous week's live Impact!, and then showed Hulk Hogan, Abyss, Jeff Hardy, and Rob Van Dam arriving together in a large Humvee. TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles then came to the ring with Ric Flair and reminded Abyss of their past matches, which Styles usually won. Flair then called out Jeff Hardy and pointed out the still huge gash on his forehead from the previous week's match with Hogan & Abyss. Flair punched himself in the head twice to reopen the cut and bled profusely as he screamed about Hardy. The "Charismatic Enigma" then came to the ring in full face paint and stoicly listened to Styles bash him and call him an egomaniac. Styles then challenged Hardy to a match and Hardy said "It'll be a breeze." Flair then told Hardy to go backstage, paint a picture, and get high on the paint fumes before the match, and Hardy said he would fly high ... right on to Styles' chest. Cameras cut back to Eric Bischoff chewing out Mick Foley for his involvement in the Jeff Jarrett vs. Beer Money handicap match when he was supposed to be the impartial referee. Foley apologized, but Bischoff said he would turn Foley into a "corporate citizen" by shaving his head and beard on Impact! Footage was then shown of the Nasty Boys attacking Jesse Neal in catering and Powerbombing him through a table. After the Team 3D vs. Nasty Boys match Christy Hemme interviewed Angelina Love backstage about watching the Beautiful People become TNA Knockout Tag Team Champions. She said they were all trying to be just like her and put out an open challenge for any "beautiful person" to face her in the ring. We then cut to Jeremy Borash with Scott Hall & Syxx-Pac, but that interview was interrupted by Kevin Nash & Eric Young. Nash challenged Hall to last 5 minutes with him in the ring and put $25,000 of his own money on the line. Hall accepted. After the Kurt Angle & D'Angelo Dinero vs. Mr. Anderson & Desmond Wolfe match the Beautiful People were briefly shown arguing backstage over who would face Love before cutting to Hogan, Hardy, and RVD meeting in Hogan's office. Hogan made Abyss the special guest enforcer in the Hardy vs. Styles match and referenced a surprise that he and RVD had for Sting later in the show. Bischoff then came in complained about Hogan not keeping him in the loop on bringing those two into TNA, but eventually claimed he and Hogan were on the same page and walked out. After the Knockouts match Hogan did come to the ring and call out Sting, who he said he could smell in the building. Sting made his way down from the rafters and toward the ring but was attacked from behind by RVD. Van Dam eventually threw Sting's baseball bat to Hogan and then rolled Sting into the ring, but before Hogan could attack Sting, Bischoff ran to the ring with a microphone and reminded Hogan that he came to TNA to lead, not to fight. Bischoff had security escort Sting out of the building and then left the ring. Hogan hugged his daughter Brooke at ringside before leaving as well. Cameras then cut to TNA World Tag Team Champion Hernandez talking to Jeff Jarrett backstage about the beating he took at the hands of Beer Money Inc. last week, and Hernandez said he still owed Jarrett for giving him a shot and wanted to be his partner that night. Bischoff overheard this and was livid, so he put Hernandez in a Handicap match of his own with Beer Money and made Jarrett the guest referee. After the Hall vs. Nash segment Jeremy Borash interviewed Beer Money, who explained that they were tired of being pushed aside by Bischoff & Hogan and would do whatever it took to get themselves back in the spotlight. After their Handicap match Bischoff came to the ring and said it was time to shave Foley. The "Hardcore Legend" came to the ring in his suit and sat in the barber's chair as instructed, but when Bischoff tried to use the clippers Foley stopped him, revealed Mr. Socko, and put the Mandible Claw on Bischoff until he passed out. Foley then shaved most of Bischoff's head and revived him so he could see his new hair cut. Next was a short backstage interview with Shannon Moore, who promised to win the X-Division Title for all the tattoed and screwed (or something like that) people out there. The Motor City Machine Guns then came to the ring, where the Ultimate X structure was set up, and talked about facing Generation Me at Destination X. This led to Max & Jeremy Buck coming out and confronting the Guns, and of course a brawl broke out. Brian Kendrick then hit the ring to help the Guns, and the Amazing Red came out to fight off Kendrick. Christopher Daniels and Kazarian soon followed, and the eight X-Division competitors battled in and out of the ring. Eventually a ladder was set up in the ring and Red did a Senton Dive from the ladder on to the four heels outside the ring. The X-Division babyfaces then posed on the ladder as we cut to commercial.
Brian Knobs, Jerry Sags, & Jimmy Hart defeated Brother Ray, Brother Devon, & Brother Runt in a 6-man tag team match when Hart pinned Ray after Knobs hit him in the head with a motorcycle helmet. Runt was a surprise replacement for Jesse Neal, who was attacked backstage before the match by the Nasty Boys. After the match Neal ran to the ring and helped Team 3D take out the Nasty Boys and put Sags through a table with a 3D. (Brother Runt's first TNA match in nearly 3 years.)
Kurt Angle & D'Angelo Dinero defeated Mr. Anderson & Desmond Wolfe when Dinero pinned Wolfe with a rollup. Dinero sold his left ankle injury throughout the match and was attacked by Wolfe after the pinfall. Anderson also attacked Angle and laid him out with the Mic Check before cutting his head open with the "Warrior" medallion and taunting Angle as he laid in a pool of his own blood.
Angelina Love defeated Daffney by disqualification when the Beautiful People interfered after the referee refused to let Daffney use a hammer on Love. TNA Knockout Champion Tara eventually ran to the ring through the crowd and cleaned house to save Love from a 4-on-1 beating.
Scott Hall defeated Kevin Nash in a 5-minute $25,000 Challenge. While a bell rang and there was a referee, there were apparently no pinfalls, submissions, disqualifications, or countouts required for victory. After a couple of minutes Syxx-Pac attacked Nash's knee from behind and he and Hall handcuffed Nash to the ring ropes. Eric Young then ran down and tried to save Nash, but he was double-teamed and laid out with the X-Factor Facebuster. Hall & Pac then scooped up Nash's money and celebrated, apparently making Hall the winner.
James Storm & Robert Roode defeated TNA World Tag Team Champion Hernandez in a Handicap match with Jeff Jarrett as the special referee. Roode pinned Hernandez after the duo hit the Drinking While Investing finisher. Hernadez's partner, Matt Morgan, did guest commentary during the bout instead of coming to ringside to help his partner. Morgan accused Hernandez of "going into business for himself" and putting himself above their Tag Team Titles. When Beer Money realized that Morgan was not coming to help his partner after the match, they attacked Hernandez until Jarrett tore off his referee shirt and cleaned house.

March 22 Impact! (0.86) - Opened with Eric Bischoff playing an acoustic guitar under a spotlight in the ring. Bischoff then explained that he is a classically-trained guitarist and doesn't like that Jeff Jarrett uses a guitar "just as a prop." He invited Jarrett to the ring to show that he could actually play guitar, but Jarrett refused and said he would not let Bischoff humiliate him. Bischoff then dared Jarrett to hit him with the guitar as the crowd egged Jarrett on. He eventually walked down the ramp, however, as Bischoff continued to taunt Jarrett. Eventually Jarrett did sneak back into the ring and smash the guitar over Bischoff's head, knocking him out cold. Mick Foley met Jarrett backstage and congratulated him, but after a commercial break Bischoff woke up and said he should fire both Jarrett and Foley. Instead, he put the two of them in a match and said the loser would be fired while the winner "gets to be my bitch." After the Knockouts match, Ric Flair & TNA World Heavyweight Champion A.J. Styles arrived at the Impact Zone. Flair was being lowered out of a van on a wheelchair, while Styles limped out with his left arm in a sling and a crutch under his right arm.

Abyss then bragged about Chokeslamming Styles through the ring at Destination X and said at Lockdown Flair & Styles would need a mortician, not a doctor. Flair & Styles then came out and Flair reminded Hogan & Abyss that he is "a Steel Cage match specialist." Flair then announced that the captain of Team Flair would be Sting, and the lights went out in the arena. When they came back on, Hogan was handcuffed to the ring ropes and Styles was attacking Abyss as Sting sat on the top turnbuckle and pointed his bat at Hogan. D'Angelo Dinero then ran down to the ring (apparently with a healed ankle) and cleaned house. Hogan gave Flair the "You!" point and managed to run Flair down before he could wheel himself up the ramp and out of harm's way. Hogan then sent Flair speeding down the ramp, straight into a big Abyss Clothesline. After the Global Title match it was announced that Beer Money Inc. would be the guest referees in the Jarrett vs. Foley match, and Jeremy Borash then interviewed the combatants after another commercial. Jarrett thanked Foley for putting the fire back in him, and the two agreed to go out and show their TNA pride in the ring. After the match and Foley's departure Bischoff was called into Hogan's office and Hogan chastised Bischoff for firing Foley. He then asked Bischoff to give up his personal issues with Jarrett and focus on business. Bischoff appeared to agree, though Hogan did not seem convinced.

Bischoff then ordered Beer Money Inc. to attack Jarrett after Foley left the ring, and they double-teamed him until Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam made the save. Hardy and RVD challenged Beer Money to a match, which they accepted. On the way out of the Impact Zone Foley was bid farewell by several babyfaces including Angelina Love, Taylor Wilde & Sarita, and Abyss before Bubba the Love Sponge tried to get some comments from Foley. Foley told Bubba his timing was bad, and Bubba told him "Don't let the door hit you in your fat ass on the way out." Foley then turned around and knocked Bubba out with a punch, gave a final "Bang, Bang!" and walked out the door. Foley legitimately bloodied Bubba's nose with the punch and came back to apologize (off-camera) as Bubba was treated by medical personnel. (Mick Foley: Hardcore Legend)

Cut to the ring, where D'Angelo Dinero (not Lethal) came out and hyped his Lockdown World Title shot. The Pope put Styles over but promised to win.

Young pointed at his partners and asked, "who traded up?" Before the main event Kurt Angle came to the ring and promised to walk out of Lockdown covered in Mr. Anderson's blood.

Hulk Hogan then came to the ring and announced a 4-way match for the TNA World Heavyweight Title as a result of last week's triple countout finish. Abyss then came to the ring and Hogan asked why Abyss went mad. Abyss said that the did what he did because "they" told him to, and he added that "they" were coming to take over TNA very soon. Hogan asked who "they" are, and Abyss said that everyone would find out soon. He added that "they" told him he does not need Hogan's Hall of Fame ring any more.

Hogan wondered if Ric Flair was responsible, but Bischoff said "I don't think it's him." We then cut to the Beautiful People's locker room, where TNA Knockout Champion Madison Rayne was touching up her hair and talking about how she would destroy Angelina Love at Victory Road. Velvet Sky stood behind her seemingly in a trance, not saying a word. Rayne got in her face and told her to get her head in the game, or else she would go out on a stretcher just like Lacey Von Erich did last week. After that match we saw two brief backstage segments, one with Jay Lethal welcoming his brother to the Impact Zone and one with Kevin Nash and Eric Young talking about Scott Hall. Nash said that he needs to distance himself from Hall, while Young needs to distance himself from both of them. "I've been dealing with these guys for 15 years," Nash said of Hogan and Bischoff. "I can take the heat." Back to the ring, where Matt Morgan called out Hernandez. Taz noted that Hernandez was in Mexico and not at the Impact Zone. Morgan called Hernandez a coward and said that they would meet again in a Steel Cage at Victory Road. Homicide then ran in from the crowd and attacked Morgan, knocking him out of the ring. Morgan quickly got the upper hand and wound up hitting the Carbon Footprint on Homicide as his head rested against the ring post, the same move that put Hernandez out of action months earlier. After the Jay Lethal vs. Kazarian match we were supposed to see Sting vs. Jeff Jarrett. However, Sting never came to the ring. Jarrett spotted him in the rafters and ran up the stairs to confront Sting. The two brawled down the stairs, but the real Sting suddenly appeared in the ring. Jarrett drug the fake Sting to the ring and tossed him in, but then realized that he had a fake Sting. At that moment the real Sting came at him from behind and choked him out with his baseball bat. Sting then hit Jarrett in the knees, back, and stomach with the bat before saying, "f you're going to walk with them, you're going to go down with them!" A video package then announced that Bound For Glory would be held in Daytona Beach, FL on October 10, 2010 (10-10-10).

Williams said that Kendrick "broke the rules of professionalism" by attacking him from behind. Kendrick said that their rematch at Victory Road would be an Ultimate X match that could also be won by submission. Williams then tried to attack Kendrick from behind, but Kendrick got the jump on him and applied the Cobra Clutch once again.

Security tried to break them up until Brother Devon shoved the security away and jacked Ray up against a wall, warning him once again to leave Neal alone. After Ink Inc.'s match with Beer Money we went back to the locker room, where A.J. Styles and Kazarian were arguing yet again about Lethal.

She said she would sue TNA if her belt was not returned in one week. Sky & Von Erich then came to the ring, and Sky laid into Rayne for her attitude. Rayne replied that she no longer needed Sky or Von Erich, and Von Erich tried hard to break up the fight.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - July 13, 2010
July 22 Impact! - The show opened with a recap of the previous week and a promise that TNA President Dixie Carter would explain why she invited the ECW originals to TNA. After the opening bout Mike Tenay again doubted Taz's role (or lack thereof) in the ECW crew's arrival, and Taz reiterated that he knew nothing about any of it. Cameras then cut backstage to Sarita & Madison Rayne, who laughed about Sarita's beatdown of Taylor Wilde last week. Rayne then started to make fun of Velvet Sky, who just happened to walk up right then with Lacey Von Erich. Von Erich tried to calm the situation, but Sky and Rayne continued to argue until Rayne & Sarita finally walked away for their match. We then cut to a backstage meeting with Carter and the TNA agents where the TNA President scolded them for their actions during the TNA vs. ECW brawl and noted that Al Snow punched out a cop. Snow tried to defend himself, noting that things were chaotic and nobody knew what was going on. "You're agents," Carter retorted, "you don't need to know what's going on!" After the Kurt Angle vs. Hernandez match Kevin Nash came to the ring and called out Jeff Jarrett. Nash told Jarrett that he is a good liar, and that he almost had Nash convinced that Sting "left a log in the punch bowl." He then noted that Sting had always been good to and straight with him, and he called the group of young wrestlers who looked up to Jarrett "the real victims." Jarrett played dumb and said that Nash was the one who tried to hurt TNA by sneaking in Scott Hall & Sean Waltman. He began to run down Nash's transgressions over his career, but Nash cut him off and asked Jarrett if he could sleep at night when his daughters grow up "and realize that daddy is a selfish prick." Nash then walked away. We cut backstage again where Kurt Angle found Carter pacing and asked her about the ECW crew. She told Angle to trust her and he said he would. A similar segment happened later with Carter and Jarrett, who warned her that Nash had replaced Sting as the cancer in TNA. After the Beer Money vs. Motor City Machine Guns match Brother Devon confronted Brother Ray backstage about his failure to support the ECW originals in their brawl with TNA. Ray said that Team 3D "have nothing to prove to those guys" and walked away. We cut away to TNA World Heavyweight Champion Rob Van Dam with Christy Hemme, and RVD talked about how great it felt to be in the ring with the ECW guys again. He added that it also feels great to be in TNA and be its World Champion, so having the ECW guys with him in TNA was "the best of both worlds." He said he had no idea about Carter's announcement but was excited to hear it. After the final commercial break Carter came to the ring and invited the ECW originals to join her. She talked about the fans' thrist for hardcore wrestling and said that TNA wanted to recognize ECW's contributions to the history of professional wrestling. She said that ECW was to the 90s what Hulk Hogan was to the 80s. Mick Foley thanked her for giving the group another chance before handing the microphone to Tommy Dreamer. Dreamer got emotional and talked about watching TNA grow while earning a paycheck (with WWE) to feed his wife and kids. He talked about the similarities between TNA and ECW and thanked Carter for giving him a chance to come to TNA and "reignite my passion for the business." He said that the One Night Stand pay-per-view in 2005 gave him closure, but then WWE decided to "bring it (ECW) back" and he had to watch his friends get fired and the ECW legacy be destroyed. "It bothered me so much that I had to quit my job at 38 years old," he said. He asked Carter to give them one night to reclaim their legacy, and she offered them the Hard Justice pay-per-view as long as Dreamer and his friends would do all the booking and planning. The crowd chanted "Sa-bu, Sa-bu" as Dreamer announced to the crowd that "We're going extreme!"

The group was interrupted by Kurt Angle, who noted that Styles was next up on the TNA Top 10 rankings list. After the Steel Cage match between Beer Money and the Motor City Machine Guns, Matt Morgan came to the ring to Mr. Anderson's music and called for his microphone. The mic dropper initially refused to give him the mic, but after Morgan threatened to come up to the rafters the mic was slowly lowered to the ring. Morgan then mocked Anderson's entrance, announcing himself "At nearly eight feet tall" and weighing over 400 pounds. Anderson interrupted and had his own mic dropped at the entranceway. He mocked Morgan for his earlier difficulties, saying "See how easy that is?" He then came to the ring and Morgan offered him a free punch. Anderson instead kicked Morgan in the groin, but Morgan eventually got the advantage and choked Anderson out with the microphone chord. Jeff Hardy made the save, but two TNA security guards ran in and attacked Hardy and Anderson with punches and choke holds.

When Sting went to attack Jarrett with his baseball bat after the match Hulk Hogan came out and walked toward the ring until Samoa Joe ran through the crowd and took out Nash from behind. Joe then held Hogan back, saying "I got this."
TNA Television Champion A.J. Styles, Kazarian, James Storm, & Robert Roode defeated Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, Rhino, & Brian Kendrick in an 8-man Elimination tag team match in 18:05 when Styles pinned Dreamer after hitting a Pele Kick.

Kendrick then pinned Kazarian at 4:50, and Kendrick was disqualified after hitting the referee. Rhino was counted-out at 13:10 when Abyss came to ringside and Rhino abandoned the match to brawl with him up the ramp. Dreamer, outnumbered 3-to-1, managed to pin Roode after a DDT and then pin Storm with a quick rollup. Mick Foley and Ric Flair were shown brawling at ringside during the closing moments.
D'Angelo Dinero & Mr. Anderson defeated Kurt Angle & Jeff Hardy in about 4:35 when Dinero pinned Angle after Anderson hit the Mic Check on him. Angle appeared to have things well in control until Hardy decided to go for a Whisper in the Wind attempt, which Anderson ducked. Hardy instead hit Angle, setting up the Mic Check. Dinero, the legal man, then slipped in behind Anderson to score the fall as Anderson looked on increduously. After the match Anderson and Dinero brawled, and then after they recovered Angle and Hardy brawled as well.

iMPACT - 9/16/10 - Opened with a recap of No Surrender and post-show comments from Kurt Angle, who said he didn't even know there was a 20:00 time limit. Angle and Jeff Hardy were in the ring to start the show and were joined by Eric Bischoff and Miss Tessmacher. Bischoff put over the No Surrender match and said that both men would wrestle Mr. Anderson in a 3-way at Bound For Glory. Dixie Carter interrupted and overruled Bischoff, putting Angle and Hardy in a rematch with no time limit. Bischoff looked angry, but cameras quickly cut backstage and found D'Angelo Dinero meeting with Sting & Kevin Nash. After the X-Division Title match cameras caught Abyss dragging a bodybag through the backstage area. After the Knockouts match Tommy Dreamer came to the ring and said that E.V.2.0 was not in the building. He asked Fortune to come to the ring with "no tricks" and called for a truce. Dreamer put over TNA and called Fortune the future of the company, adding that he and E.V.2.0 "just want to help." Dreamer put over each individual member of Fortune, comparing James Storm to Stan Lane and reminding Kazarian that Dreamer got him a job with the WWE. He also put over Ric Flair as a legend and thanked him for his career and said that Flair was a "hardcore wrestler" because he laid everything on the line no matter what. Dreamer thanked A.J. Styles for "elevating my game" and offered to shake his hand. Styles commended Dreamer for his comments and put over ECW. Styles shook Dreamer's hand but then noted that nobody else had ever made him say "I quit." Styles said "I don't need your endorsement and I don't need your praise" and then suckerpunched Dreamer. Fortune ganged up on him until Brian Kendrick ran to the ring and threw himself on top of Dreamer, taking the beating himself. Fortune continued to attack both Dreamer & Kendrick until TNA security made the save. Kendrick challenged any Fortune member to a match, which began during the commercial break. After that bout Dinero found Tessmacher in Bischoff's office and flirted with her, inviting her to his dressing room. Cameras found Abyss again, and he had one person chained up and another tied to a table. Abyss pulled out a branding iron with "10-10-10" on it, named the weapon "Bob," and then (off-camera) branded the guy tied to the table. Mike Tenay & Taz then talked to Rob Van Dam on the phone and he updated them on his recovery. RVD said he was training harder than ever and that in his mind, he was still the TNA World Heavyweight Champion because he'd never lost the belt. RVD promised to be back on Impact! next week. Generation Me then came out and said that RVD's injury gave them an idea, so they injured Alex Shelley at No Surrender to force the Motor City Machine Guns to vacate the TNA World Tag Team Titles. They ordered Chris Sabin to come to the ring and hand them the belts, but instead Sabin came out and attacked Max & Jeremy Buck. They hit a Double DDT on Sabin from the top rope and hten posed with the Titles. A brief video then aired hyping the debut of the Shore on October 7.

September 23 Impact! - Opened with a recap of last week's show and then Rob Van Dam's arrival at the Impact Zone. He was apparently looking for Abyss but was restrained by Jeff Hardy and TNA security. After the opening segment the Beautiful People were shown in their locker room, where Lacey Von Erich went on an angry tirade about Madison Rayne and stormed off. Included Dixie Carter's announcement of a $100,000 Battle Royal on the live Before the Glory Impact! on October 7, and Tommy Dreamer's announcement of Fortune vs. E.V.2.0 in a Lethal Lockdown match at Bound For Glory. Dreamer also said that Sabu would face TNA Television Champion A.J. Styles in a Ladder match to determine which team got the man-up advantage. After a commercial break Mr. Anderson came out and brought Kurt Angle to the ring. Anderson talked about their similarities and Angle talked about the sacrifices he made to be the best in the world. A mutual admiration society broke out and they shook hands. Cut backstage, where Ric Flair was giving a pep talk to Styles & Fortune. Flair was then "iced," a game popular with college students where you surprised someone with a bottle of Smirnoff Ice and they were forced to get on their knees and chug it. This became a regular part of Fortune segments for the next several weeks. After the main event Hardy & RVD talked backstage and Hardy promised to win the TNA World Heavyweight Title for his friend at BFG. After RVD walked away, Hardy was attacked from behind by Abyss. Abyss carried Hardy to the ring and said that seeing RVD was like seeing a ghost. He called RVD "ignorant and pathetic" and said that "they" gave him strict orders to eliminate RVD from TNA. He promised that "they" would reveal themselves at BFG and he and Janice would "slaughter" RVD. Cue RVD's music, and he limped out with a metal chair in hand. RVD tossed the chair at Abyss a couple of times until the monster got the upper hand. Impact! closed with Abyss standing over RVD and holding Janice. At the kickoff of ReAction, Ink Inc. made the save and chased Abyss off.
Rob Terry defeated Abyss by DQ when Abyss attacked Terry with a guardrail. After the match Rob Van Dam walked through the crowd and into the ring, wearing bandages all over his body to show where Abyss cut him on the August 12 Impact! some 5 weeks earlier. Security escorted Abyss backstage as RVD slowly made his way into the ring to thank the fans for their support. He asked Eric Bischoff to come to the ring and said that his doctor cleared him to return just in time for Bound For Glory. RVD demanded a match with Abyss, so Bischoff made the match. (This entire portion of the segment was retaped the next night.) After RVD left D'Angelo Dinero's music hit and the Pope strutted to the ring. Pope asked Bischoff to do him a favor as well and explain "what hell is going on in TNA?" He said that Bischoff was full of crap and complained about others getting World Title shots ahead of him. Bischoff got angry and asked if Dinero was accusing him of racism, but Dinero denied it and simply said that Bischoff was a con man. Bischoff asked Pope to come talk backstage "like professionals" and left the ring. Bischoff later told Dinero that he'd consider putting him in a 4-way main event at BFG if he could beat Samoa Joe. A few minutes later Dinero complained to a cameraman that he was being "held back," and Jeff Jarrett was then shown complaining that the Pope needed to "stop bitching" and earn respect in the ring.
TNA World Tag Team Champion Alex Shelley pinned Jeremy Buck (with Max Buck) with a rollup in 3:45. Max was sent backstage early on after he interfered and tripped Shelley, but he returned to help his brother double-team Shelley after the match.
Taylor Wilde & Hamada defeated Velvet Sky & Lacey Von Erich to retain the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles in 4:20 when Wilde pinned Von Erich after Madison Rayne interfered and hit her with Tara's motorcycle helmet.
Samoa Joe defeated D'Angelo Dinero by submission with the Kokina Clutch in 5:05. Dinero was set up to hit the DDE but was distracted when Jeff Jarrett came to ringside to cheer on Joe. Jarrett was then attacked by Sting & Kevin Nash, and after the match Joe joined the fight. Later in the show Dinero, Nash, & Sting all talked backstage and Nash asked Dinero if he'd "heard anything from the broads." Dinero played coy, so Nash specifically asked about Miss Tessmacher. Pope looked shocked and said, "You know?" "What do you think we've been fighting for all this time?" replied Sting. Dinero fist-bumped them and said they could count him in.
TNA Television Champion A.J. Styles (with Ric Flair and Matt Morgan) defeated Sabu in a 14:50 Ladder match to gain the man-up advantage for Fortune in Lethal Lockdown at Bound For Glory. Early in the match Mick Foley walked to the ring to even up the sides and was attacked by Flair & Morgan, leading the rest of Fortune and E.V.2.0 to come to ringside and brawl. Security came out to break up the fight, but Sabu hit a Triple-Jump Plancha from the ring to the floor and took out several of the guards. Sabu then almost won the match but was stopped by James Storm, who hit him with a beer bottle. Storm then helped Styles climb the ladder and pull down the TNA logo to win th ematch.

September 23 Impact! - Rob Terry defeated Abyss by DQ when Abyss attacked Terry with a guardrail. After the match Rob Van Dam walked through the crowd and into the ring, wearing bandages all over his body to show where Abyss cut him on the August 12 Impact! some 5 weeks earlier. Security escorted Abyss backstage as RVD slowly made his way into the ring to thank the fans for their support. He asked Eric Bischoff to come to the ring and said that his doctor cleared him to return just in time for Bound For Glory. RVD demanded a match with Abyss, so Bischoff made the match. (This was a retape of a segment filmed the night before.)

September 30 Impact! (1.2) - Opened with footage of Kurt Angle talking to Hulk Hogan over the phone. Angle thanked him for his support and promised to win the Bound For Glory main event after taking care of Abyss. Angle then came to the ring and wished Hogan well in recovery from back surgery. Angle promised to take care of Abyss and told Abyss to stop focusing on 10/10/10 and to instead focus on 9/30/10. Abyss came out and Angle went after him. They brawled to the back and Angle started to choke Abyss out, but a low blow ended that. TNA security and agents finally broke up the brawl. Later Mr. Anderson looked at his cell phone and noted that he did not see any calls of encouragement from Hogan and asked Eric Bischoff why Hogan was picking sides. Bischoff said that Hogan and Angle had a lot in common and Anderson shouldn't take it personally. Bischoff put Anderson in a match with Samoa Joe, which Joe later said he appreciated. Later on A.J. Styles challenged Brian Kendrick to a TNA Television Title match and then "iced" Ric Flair. After a commercial break Miss Tessmacher berated Madison Rayne & Tara and said she could fire them. The Beautiful People walked up and tried to fight Rayne & Tara but Tessmacher threatened to fire them all. A 4-way Knockout Title match was then set up for BFG.
Tommy Dreamer & Rhino defeated James Storm & Robert Roode in a Lumberjack match when Dreamer pinned Roode after hitting the Death Valley Driver. The lumberjacks, made up of the rest of Evolution and E.V.2.0, naturally interfered during the match and had a big brawl at ringside. After Sabu took Fortune out with a Triple-Jump Plancha from the ring to the floor, Mick Foley got on the mic and invited Ric Flair to the ring "to clear the air." Flair came to the ring and asked, "What do you want to talk about, you asshole?" Foley challenged Flair to one last match on the live October 7 Before the Glory Impact! Flair grabbed a copy of Foley's latest book, Countdown to Lockdown, and stomped on it before hitting an elbow drop and a knee drop on the hard cover book. Flair kicked it out of the ring and asked Foley why he wanted the match. Foley said that he needed Flair to bring out the best in him, and Flair said "that's what I do" before punching himself in the head until he split himself open. Foley did the same thing, opening himself up under the eye. Foley challenged Flair to make it a Last Man Standing match, and Flair accepted. Flair promised to kiss Foley's ass if he lost.
Max & Jeremy Buck defeated Jesse Neal & Shannon Moore when Max pinned Moore with a rollup after hitting a low blow. Generation Me came to the ring with the TNA World Tag Team Title belt they stole from Chris Sabin, and after the match the Motor City Machine Guns chased them off and took back their belt.
Mr. Anderson pined Samoa Joe after hitting the Mic Check. Sting, Kevin Nash, & D'Angelo Dinero did guest commentary and after the match Nash tried to talk Joe into abandoning Jeff Jarrett and joining them. During a commercial break Joe apparently left, while Nash, Sting, & Dinero were still in the ring. Nash said that Sting had been warning everyone for months about Hulk Hogan & Bischoff but nobody listened. Pope said that he was "running with a pack of wolves" and called Bischoff a liar and "a son of a Bischoff." Sting said that it was still all about Hogan vs. Sting just as it was in WCW. Sting challenged Hogan to team with Joe & Jarrett against himself, Nash, & Dinero at Bound For Glory. Bischoff & Miss Tessmacher came out and Bischoff called it "disgusting." He said that Nash & Sting were still trying to bury younger talent just as they did 15 years earlier in WCW and said that he was disappointed by Pope's joining them. Bischoff said that Hogan would be on the live Impact! next week to answer Sting.
A.J. Styles (with Ric Flair) pinned Brian Kendrick with Styles Clash to retain the TNA Television Title. Flair & Matt Morgan both interfered on Styles' behalf.
Kurt Angle vs. Abyss in a Steel Cage match was no contest when Abyss took out the referee with a Chokeslam.

TNA @ Charleston, SC - Blackbaud Stadium - October 3, 2010

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - October 7, 2010
October 7 Before the Glory Impact! - Opened with Abyss holding TNA President Dixie Carter hostage and walking her toward the ring. Carter was handcuffed to Abyss, who carried Janice and Bob in his other hand. Carter screamed for help as Abyss ranted about 10-10-10 and how "they" would take over. Eric Bischoff and TNA security then ran out and Bischoff convinced Abyss to let Carter go. Sting, Kevin Nash, & D'Angelo Dinero then came to the ring and confronted Bischoff, asking if Hulk Hogan would accept their challenge for Bound For Glory. Bischoff showed footage of Hogan's recent back surgery and shot down the group's "conspiracy theories." He announced that Hogan would be out of action for the forseeable future, and therefore the Bound For Glory bout with Jeff Jarrett & Samoa Joe would be a Handicap match. Immediately after this segment a camerman caught Mickie James pulling into the Impact Zone. He asked what she was doing at Impact!, and she said "That's a good question." After commercial we saw footage of Team 3D in Times Square, and they put New York City over and said they would make a big announcement at BFG. Later we saw footage of Mick Foley at a book signing, and he reminded everyone that Ric Flair said he would kiss Foley's ass if he lost their Last Man Standing match. We immediately cut back to the Impact Zone, where backstage Carter ordered Bischoff to fire Abyss immediately and in the middle of the ring. Bischoff came to the ring immediately after the Last Man Standing match and was interrupted by Rob Van Dam, who warned Bischoff that if his match with Abyss was cancelled he would quit TNA immediately. We later saw RVD talking to Dixie Carter about this, and Carter agreed that the BFG match would still happen but Abyss would be fired immediately after the show. Bischoff then presented papers to terminate Abyss as of 12:01 .m. on October 11, and Carter hurriedly signed the form. Also featured footage of Tommy Dreamer and Rhino walking through the fans lined up outside the old ECW Arena in Philadelphia prior to TNA's house show there on September 24, followed by a bizarre segment where Orlando Jordan and Eric Young played a carnival game and won a stuffed animal. Later TNA X-Division Champion Jay Lethal took a TNA camerman on a tour of where he grew up in New Jersey, and later the Shore made their TNA debut. Robbie E. & Cookie insulted the crowd for not having tans, and they warned TNA that "The party's in the house ... bitches!"
TNA Knockout Champion Angelina Love & Velvet Sky defeated Madison Rayne & Tara to win the rights to the Beautiful people name and entrance music. Love pinned Tara after she and Sky hit a double crevat kick. After the match Rayne and Tara argued as Love & Sky celebrated, but they were all interrupted by Miss Tessmacher. "This isn't a BFF club, this is a competition," she said. Tessmacher then introduced the guest referee for the 4-way match at Bound For Glory, Mickie James. James talked about her debut and promised that she would become the first woman to win every major women's wrestling Title "known to womankind" by winning the TNA Knockout Title. (Mickie James' (formerly known as Alexis Laree) return to TNA after a 7 year absence.)
Mick Foley defeated Ric Flair in a Last Man Standing match. Flair appeared to answer the referee's 10-count, but then quickly did the trademark face-first fall back onto the canvas (which was covered with thumbtacks.) Both men bled profusely during the match, and Foley was thrown from the entrance ramp and through a table to the concrete. Later Foley dropped Flair onto a pile of thumbtacks, and he then pulled a board covered in barbed wire out from under the ring and set it on Flair in the corner. Foley then hit a running knee onto the board, slamming it into Flair's head. Flair soon got the advantage on Foley and laid him on a table. In the final spot of the match Flair then hit a splash from the top rope, putting Foley through the table and landing both men in the thumbtacks. After the match Foley reminded Flair to kiss his ass, but Fortune attacked Foley from behind in a 7-on-1 beating until E.V.2.0 chased them off. Flair yelled, "Now that's kissing your ass, and at Bound For Glory we're going to kiss all your asses!" (Mick Foley: Hardcore Legend)

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - October 11, 2010
Xplosion - Jay Lethal defeated the Amazing Red to retain the TNA X-Division Title.

October 14 Impact! - Featured only 11 minutes of actual wrestling, since the main event ran almost entirely during ReAction. Opened with Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff explaining their master plan to take TNA from Dixie Carter with the help of Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, and new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy. Hogan called the group the Immortals, and Bischoff explained that TNA President Dixie Carter had in fact signed her company away to Hogan when she thought she was signing a termination contract on Abyss. Hogan claimed that Carter "conned" he and Bischoff into coming to TNA and then refused to "give me the keys to the car." They then called Abyss to the ring and he called himself a soldier who would follow orders. Bischoff then introduced Jarrett, calling him "the man who knows where all the bodies are buried." Jarrett talked about having his company taken from him by the Carter family and how he was screwed by Dixie. The Immortals were then interrupted by Ric Flair and Fortune, who came to the ring and declared that they were running TNA. Flair said that he'd hated Hogan's guts for 25 years, and he said "By the end of the night, one of us is going to walk away." Flair and Hogan appeared ready to brawl, but then embraced and laughed as Bischoff explained that they joined forces when Carter chose to bring in "a bunch of used garbage" (E.V.2.0) and compared them to Flair and Hogan. Flair told Hogan that he loved him more than his ex-wives, to which Hogan replied "All five of them?" Flair laughed and said they could all kiss his ass. Bischoff then introduced Jeff Hardy, who said that "popularity doesn't mean a damn to me." He accused the fans of cheering for his pain and not caring about him as a person. He called Rob Van Dam "just another politician" and said that he instructed Abyss to take RVD out. Sting & Kevin Nash were shown watching backstage on a monitor, so Hogan & Bischoff called them to come join the fun. Hogan asked them to "forgive and forget" and join the group. Sting & Nash did come to the ring, but both said "thanks but no thanks" and walked away. They were confronted backstage by D'Angelo Dinero, who was distraught that they would abandon the fight. Dinero promised to stay and "fight the good fight" by himself if necessary. They were then also confronted by Dixie Carter, who yelled "You can't leave me!" Sting told her, "We tried to warn you, but you wouldn't listen." Sting & Nash then walked away, and almost immediately Hogan & Bischoff walked up to Carter. She yelled at them for an explanation and slapped Bischoff when he interrupted her. Hogan instructed her to take the conversation to his office, so after commercial cameras went there. Carter told Hogan to look her in the eye and tell her that he screwed her, which Hogan did. Carter blamed Bischoff for everything, saying "I never trusted you" and calling him "a smug little shit." Hogan the instructed TNA security to remove her from the building, which they reluctantly did. When Carter's husband Serge tried to intervene Gunner knocked him out with one punch. Later Kurt Angle came to the ring and acknowledged that he was injured during the Bound For Glory main event and that he said he would retire if he did not win the World Title. However, he also noted that he was not pinned and that he was screwed by Hogan & Bischoff. Jeff Jarrett then came out and told Angle to stop making excuses and leave. "You are an Olympic Gold Medalist, a father, and a husband ... well, make that ex-husband," Jarrett said, making mention of his current wife and Angle's ex-wife Karen. Jarrett said that Angle made his life a living hell when he came to TNA, and that it was Jarrett's turn to return the favor. Angle told Jarrett, "You can have that slut." He then accused Jarrett of being bitter that, once Angle came to TNA, it wasn't about Jarrett any more. He noted that Jarrett never won the TNA World Title once Angle came to the company because "you held everyone down, but you couldn't hold Kurt Angle down." Angle later tried to attack Jarrett, but he was intercepted by Gunner & Murphy from TNA security. Jarrett then attacked Angle while he was handcuffed and threw him head first into the side of the entrance ramp. Taz & Mike Tenay talked about Angle's history of neck problems, and when Jarrett attacked Angle again Taz left the booth and got Jarrett off of Angle. "Enough!," he yelled, "He's got a f--ked up neck! That's enough!" Jarrett, looking surprised at himself, walked away as doctors checked on Angle. After a commercial Samoa Joe was shown on Daytona Beach talking about his need to get revenge on Jarrett for stabbing him in the back at Bound For Glory. Later in the show Bischoff met with Miss Tessmacher backstage and flirted with her. She readily agreed to meet him later, and Bischoff called her a slut. He said that she gave valuable information to Nash and Dinero because she was easy, and that she almost compromised the entire master plan. Bischoff then fired her as the boss of the Knockouts and told her that if she wanted to remain in TNA, she'd better become a wrestler herself. She ran away crying, and Bischoff was then backed against the wall by Mr. Anderson. Anderson shook Bischoff's hand and squeezed tightly as he called him a douchebag. Anderson promised Bischoff, "You will not win this war." Also featured several segments with J-Woww from the MTV reality show "The Jersey Shore." She ran into the Beautiful People backstage while looking for Cookie, and the BPs later escorted her to the ring to confront Cookie & Robbie E. Cookie slapped J-Woww, who then took her down to the mat and smacked her around while the BPs took out Robbie E. with a low blow.
Madison Rayne pinned Tara to win the TNA Knockout Title when Tara laid down and allowed Rayne to make the pin. Before the match Rayne reminded Tara that she only got to come back to TNA because of Rayne's signing of a waver, and she repeatedly told the new Champion to "do the right thing." After the match Mickie James came to the entrance stage and called Tara and Rayne a disgrace to women's wrestling. James and Tara then brawled briefly in the ring as Rayne escaped, and James posed with the Title in the ring.
Samoa Joe defeated Abyss by DQ when Abyss cracked Joe over the head with the timekeeper's bell. Abyss continued to attack Joe until Rob Van Dam ran to the ring and chased Abyss away. Joe and RVD stared each other down until Joe slipped out of the ring and to the back. RVD then called out Jeff Hardy to explain himself. Hardy appeared on the video board and called himself "the new Anti-Christ of wrestling." Eric Bischoff came out and said that he would give RVD a match with Hardy at Turning Point if he could beat Mr. Anderson in a #1 contender match later in the show.
TNA Television Champion A.J. Styles, Kazarian, Douglas Williams, James Storm, & Robert Roode (with Ric Flair and Matt Morgan) defeated D'Angelo Dinero in a 5-on-1 handicap match when Kazarian pinned Dinero after Beer Money hit the DWI.
Rob Van Dam vs. Mr. Anderson in a #1 contender match was a no contest when Eric Bischoff came to the ring and forced referee Brian Hebner to follow him backstage. TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy then came to the ring with a metal folding chair and slammed it over RVD and Anderson's backs. He then placed Anderson's left arm in the chair and hit RVD with a Twist of Fate on to the chair, apparently injuring Anderson's shoulder while simultaneously knocking RVD unconscious. Hardy posed over the fallen contenders as Impact! faded into ReAction.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - October 12, 2010
Stevie Richards defeated Jesse "Mr. Pec-Tacular" Godderz by pinfall. (Godderz' second tryout match with TNA.)

October 21 Impact! (1.16) - Opened with Mr. Anderson coming to the ring with his left arm in a sling. He asked TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy to "take your little testicles out of Hogan and Bischoff's purse" and come to the ring. Rob Van Dam came out instead and noted that he is was not getting a chance to win back the Title he never lost. Hardy then appeared on the jumbotron and that it's human nature to screw up. He acknowledged that he did Anderson and RVD wrong, and asked them to forgive him. Before they could answer Eric Bischoff came to the entrance stage and talked about that night's episode of Reaction, which would feature a step-by-step tale of how Immortal came together and joined with Fortune. He told Anderson that he felt "partially responsible" for his injury, so he gave Anderson a chance to earn a World Title match in an Ultimate X match that night. He told RVD that he was stabbed in the back by his best friend, and "you wouldn't believe how many people have been calling me wanting to be a part of Immortal." He announced that RVD would team with Sabu against Beer Money and made RVD doubt E.V.2.0's loyalty. A new Impact! opening sequence then debuted with a heavy focus on footage of Immortal and Fortune members destroying their enemies. A brief clip was shown of a camera crew trying to get comments from the Shore on J-Woww, and then backstage D-Lo Brown tried to calm RVD down as he marched to the E.V.2.0 locker room and started accusing everyone of joining Immortal. Cut back to another recap of the previous week's segment with the Shore and J-Woww, and then to Robbie E's debut match. After the bout footage was shown of D'Angelo Dinero, apparently sitting in a nightclub in Harlem, challenging A.J. Styles to a TNA Television Title match. After showing some footage of a Mick Foley book signing that Brian Kendrick attended, Styles accepted Pope's challenge while the rest of Fortune talked trash on RVD, Anderson, and their other enemies. Fortune again "iced" Ric Flair, and the celebration was broken up by Bischoff. Bischoff announced that Fortune was banned from Styles' match with Pope, and he would lose the Title if they interfered. Bischoff said "This is going to be a fair regime," to which Styles replied, "Since when?" Cameras then cut to the makeup room and the Beautiful People. Miss Tessmacher interrupted and begged them to teach her how to be a Knockout, but Velvet Sky got in her face and reminded her of all the bad things she said about the Beautiful People before Bound For Glory. Tessmacher left in tears, and Lacey Von Erich said they should give her a second chance. Sky & Von Erich then left, and suddenly Winter (WWE's Katie Lea Burchill) appeared behind Love in the mirror. She said that she'd wanted to meet Love for a long time, but when Sky came back in the room to grab her purse Winter was gone. Sky teased Love about having an imaginary friend. Featured two more Knockout segments, pre-match interviews with Sarita (doing yoga) and Mickie James (sitting on a statue of a bull). Also featured a segment where Jeff Jarrett came to the ring and apologized ... for not hurting Kurt Angle even worse. Jarrett was then attacked by Samoa Joe until TNA security interfered and handcuffed Joe, who managed to turn the situation around and get Jarrett in a choke hold using the cuffs. Eventually Gunner & Murphy got Joe off of Jarrett, who then threw Joe off the entrance stage. Mike Tenay yelled at Jarrett from the broadcast table, but Jarrett smiled as he looked down at Joe's seemingly lifeless body. Other segments during the show saw Dinero try to enlist Samoa Joe's help; a nice feature on Team 3D's decision to retire as a tag team after their Turning Point match with the Motor City Machine Guns; the Guns tossing a football with Velvet Sky (which was not explained) and having a brief skirmish with Generation Me; and Mr. Anderson getting attacked by Fortune on his way to the ring for the Ultimate X main event. After the main event Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff got in a limosine to head out on the town, but the limo's path was blocked by a pipe-wielding Kurt Angle. Angle chased the driver away and smashed in a window before TNA security subdued him. The show ended with Flair telling security to have Angle arrested.
Robbie E. (with Cookie) pinned Amazing Red after hitting an Ace Crusher (Diamond Cutter / RKO). After the match Robbie told TNA X-Division Champion Jay Lethal that he would do the same thing to him and take the Title.
A.J. Styles pinned D'Angelo Dinero to retain the TNA Television Title in a Street Fight after Abyss interfered and hit the Black Hole Slam on Pope. After the match Fortune and Eric Bischoff came to the entrance stage and celebrated with Styles. Mike Tenay and Taz noted that Pope's "make it rain" money drop entrance was cancelled by Hulk Hogan & Bischoff.
James Storm & Robert Roode defeated Rob Van Dam & Sabu when Roode pinned RVD after Sabu tried to throw a metal folding chair at Roode's face and Roode ducked, causing the chair to hit RVD instead. Storm then knocked Sabu out of the ring while Roode made the cover. After the match RVD and Sabu argued and looked ready to fight until the rest of E.V.2.0 ran out and broke it up.
Mickie James pinned Sarita after hitting a spinning back kick. After the match Tara attacked James from behind and dropped her with the Widow's Peak. (Mickie James' first TNA match in 7 years.)
Kazarian defeated Mr. Anderson in an Ultimate X match when Fortune came to the ring, beat up Anderson, and then placed Kazarian on Matt Morgan's shoulders so he could pull down the X. Anderson wrestled the match with a heavily-taped shoulder and only attempted to scale the Ultimate X cables once. He immediately fell to the mat, unable to use his left arm. Late in the match Anderson hit the Mic Check on Kazarian and pulled out a ladder from under the ring. He was going to use the ladder to pull down the X, but that prompted Fortune to interfere. Anderson then got a steel pipe from under the ring and attacked Fortune with it, clearing the ring. Jeff Hardy rand down the ramp with a metal folding chair and smashed Anderson from behind with it. The chair caught Anderson in the back of the head, busting him open the hard way and putting him out of action for two months with a severe concussion.

October 28 Impact! (1.13)- Opened with a montage of TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy's recent promos and attacks on Mr. Anderson, and then cut backstage where Tara and Mickie James were brawling through catering. Tara was eventually joined by Madison Rayne and Sarita, and then by Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. The six knockouts brawled all through the backstage area and eventually into the ring, where Ric Flair and TNA security tried to break up the brawl. Tara and James both slapped Flair when he tried to get between them, and Flair said he would "make a woman out of" them or knock them out if they did it again. Flair set up a 6-woman tag team match for later int he night, but the brawl recommenced as cameras went to the opening credits. After the opening we caught a brief glimpse of D'Angelo Dinero pushing a casket backstage, and then cut to Flair in Eric Bischoff's office talking about the knockout brawl. Bischoff said that Hulk Hogan was out talking to potential new Immortal members. TNA's head trainer came in and objected to the decision to put Mr. Anderson in a match due to his severe concussion, but Bischoff and Flair belittled him for the warning and said that "wrestlers work hurt." Later in the show Matt Morgan tried to talk Flair, Bischoff, and then Jeff Jarrett into calling off the match, noting all the recent research on concussions and how athletes need to take care of one another. Morgan's pleas fell on deaf ears, so he took Anderson's place in the Chain match with Jarrett.

That prompted Morgan to pick up the chain and cuff it to himself, taking Anderson's spot in the match. After the bout a bloody Morgan was uncuffed from the chain and attacked Jarrett until Fortune ran to the ring and began a 5-on-1 beatdown of their apparently former stablemate.

December 9 Impact! - Opened with a backstage meeting of Immortal/Fortune. Eric Bischoff worried about Dixie Carter's legal maneuvering and said that the faction needed to capture all of the TNA championships in order to protect themselves. He called A.J. Styles out for losing the Television Title at Final Resolution before Rhino interrupted the meeting, He asked when Bischoff would deliver the new contract he promised, and Bischoff said that was before Rhino lost to Rob Van Dam at Final Resolution. Rhino tried to attack Bischoff but was attacked by Immortal and thrown out. They then went to the ring and introduced TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy and put him over. Bischoff also complemented Matt Morgan and said he deserved another Title shot, so he made Morgan vs. Mr. Anderson in a #1 contender match. Morgan came to the ring and said that Anderson still was not cleared to wrestle, so the match would not happen. Bischoff said that if Anderson didn't wrestle he could just stay home and never come back. Anderson was shown watching all of this backstage on a monitor. Later in the show Morgan found Anderson in the locker room and objected when Anderson said he decided to wrestle. Anderson angrily talked about "sitting on my ass at home for two months" and said he would be cleared by his doctor. After the opening video Brother Ray cut a promo on Brother Devon backstage and said he would prove that anybody could have been his partner. Mike Tenay then announced that Hamada could not make it back to the U.S. from Japan, and therefore she and Taylor Wilde were stripped of the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles and a tournament would begin to crown new champions. Later Tara lip synched to her entrance music while Generation Me danced, mocking Mickie James' performance from the week before. Soon James came out and attacked Tara from behind until Generation Me grabbed her, prompting Eric Young to come out and fight off Max & Jeremy Buck. James and Tara brawled until security broke it up, and James challenged Tara to a Steel Cage match. In another segment D'Angelo Dinero came to the ring with a group of singers and a casket, and he said that while he laid in that casket at Final Resolution he had a "spiritual awakening" and wanted to help those in need. He asked his congregation to donate money to the cause and said "Where there's Pope, there's hope."
Jesse Neal & Shannon Moore defeated Brother Ray & a fake Brother Devon when Moore pinned "Devon" after hitting the Mooregasm.

TNA World Tag Team Champions Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley defeated Gunner & Murphy by DQ in a non-Title match when Murphy attacked Sabin with a nightstick. After the DQ the Motor City Machine Guns got control of the nightstick and beat the hell out of Gunner & Murphy as Beer Money watched in stunned silence from the announcers' table. (This match was actually held and filmed twice with the same finish, but a different post-match segment.)

Eric Bischoff announced that he brought trainers into the ring to give both Matt Morgan and Mr. Anderson physicals to ensure they would be fit to wrestle at Genesis. Morgan came to the ring and called the whole thing a sham, saying that Anderson should not be in a wrestling match. Mick Foley then made his surprise return to Impact! and talked about suffering multiple concussions over the years, including one in his match with Ric Flair a month ago. Foley talked about donating his brain to science and sided with Morgan on keeping Anderson out of the ring. Bischoff called Foley the reason why wrestlers started doing stupid things and getting concussions, and called him "the problem, not the solution." Foley owned up to some responsibility for hardcore wrestling becoming so popular, but said that he now wanted to be part of the solution.

December 16 Impact! (1.12) - Opened with Mr. Anderson looking at the show format backstage and angrily knocking it over after seeing his name on the card. Matt Morgan walked up and asked why Anderson was angry, since he said he was cleared to wrestle by his doctor. "Who are you, my mom?" asked Anderson. He then walked away angrily after Morgan questioned his honesty. After the opening video Morgan came to the ring in his wrestling gear and talked about choosing to leave Immortal to protect Mr. Anderson. He said that Anderson's decision to wrestle was not his responsibility, and that it would be Anderson's own fault if he got injured. That brought Anderson out. He again thanked Morgan for standing up for him, but noted that he is an adult and can take care of himself. Morgan noted that Anderson had never produced an actual medical clearance signed by a doctor and called Eric Bischoff "a little pissant promoter" who put wrestlers in harm's way. They were then interrupted by TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy, who said that Morgan should have just proposed to Anderson "so you can get married at Genesis." Morgan called Hardy "Hogan's puppet boy," and Anderson cracked that Hardy's "makeup is running." Hardy hinted that Morgan might still be with Immortal and just working Anderson and said "we're all con men." After the X-Division Title match A.J. Styles was shown watching a monitor with Bischoff, and Styles cracked on Robbie for losing his championship. Bischoff then got on Styles' case, saking when he would "step up and be the pound for pound greatest wrestler in the world." Bischoff told Styles to get his Television Title back, because "I can find any any jabroni who can do a Ric Flair imitation." Styles angrily walked away. Cameras then cut to Douglas Williams, who talked about beating Styles with his own move. Magnus then walked by off-camera, and Williams called him over to hug and catch up on things. Magnus said that he and Desmond Wolfe would be back in action soon, and noted that they'd gotten rid of Chelsea. After Magnus walked away Williams was attacked in his dressing room trailer by Styles, and the two then brawled through the Knockouts' trailer as Madison Rayne and Tara screamed at them to "get out of here." Styles called them "hookers" and left Williams on the floor unconscious. Cut to Orlando Jordan & Eric Young, who was wearing the old TNA World Heavyweight Title belt and flanked by two models. Young said that he found the belt in the garbage, so he was now the champion. Young walked away as Jordan tried to ask about the girls, and Young went into a room where Brian Kendrick was meditating in a circle of candles. Young called him "sensei" and asked for some guidance in his first title defense. Kendrick told him to believe in himself and reminded him that "One man's trash is another man's treasure." In a later segment Kazarian wished Rob Terry luck in his match against Rob Van Dam and said that Terry had an opportunity impress Immortal. Terry initially dismissed Kazarian, but Kaz noted that "you can be made, or you can be gone" just like Rhino. Later D'Angelo Dinero was shown raising money "for the children" for Christmas. Later he was seen, apparently on a hidden camera, entering a strip club.
Jay Lethal pinned Robbie E. (with Cookie) to win the TNA X-Division Title after hitting the Lethal Injection. Cookie interfered almost immediately, prompting Christy Hemme to come out and attack Cookie. Hemme then handcuffed herself to Cookie and kept her from interfering in the rest of the match.

January 6, 2011 Impact! - Filmed a segment where Eric Bischoff came to the ring with Immortal and called out all the current TNA champions. He promised that there would be no attack, and he then put over Jay Lethal, Douglas Williams, and the Motor City Machine Guns as great champions.

Rob Van Dam then hit the ring and helped the champions chase Immortal from the ring.

Afterward short segments were shown with Eric Bischoff again emphasizing the importance of Immortal holding all the TNA titles and Brian Kendrick telling a lady in catering that he felt connected to her. Later on D'Angelo Dinero was seen talking on his cell phone when he was approached by Orlando Jordan (in a slutty Santa costume) and Eric Young (in a giant bear costume). Young donated money to Dinero's charity, and Dinero told the guy on the phone to "make the deal happen." Before the main event Robert Roode was shown firing up Immortal backstage, and then later Team Motor City Machine Guns was also shown backstage. Matt Morgan looked distracted, so the Guns and Rob Van Dam tried to focus him in. Between the two segments Mike Tenay & Taz interviewed Mr. Anderson "via satellite from Green Bay" about his medical condidition. When Tenay pressed Anderson to produce a signed medical clearance, Anderson angrily tore off his microphone and stormed off. The main event was the 8-man tag team match filmed on December 6.
Jeff Jarrett defeated the Amazing Red by submission with the Ankle Lock in a $100,000 Double-J Double-M A Challenge. Before the match Jarrett's trainer checked Red out and shined a flashlight in his eyes, supposedly checking for concussion, blinding Red and allowing Jarrett to immediately jump Red and pound him with knees and punches. After the exhibition Jarrett helped Red to his feet and congratulated him "on a strong showing."

A 5-minute overtime period ended with no new falls. After the match Styles challenged Williams to another match at Genesis, but Williams refused unless Styles agreed to put something on the line. He told Styles that if he lost, he must leave Immortal and Fortune forever. Styles refused, but Eric Bischoff came out and accepted the stipulation on Styles' behalf.

TNA @ Orlando, FL - Universal Studios - December 10, 2010
December 30 Impact! (1.09) - Opened with Mick Foley coming to the ring and asking Mr. Anderson to join him. Foley told a funny story about their first meeting when they were both in the WWE and then told Anderson, "You're not okay." He told Anderson to think about his family and the next 20-30 years of his life and said that the people did not want him to put himself in harm's way at Genesis. Anderson thanked Foley and the fans for their concern but again claimed that he was medically cleared to wrestle. He got angry when when he thought Foley was calling him a liar and challenged him to a fight, prompting Matt Morgan to come to the ring. Morgan asked Anderson if this was "another con game" and noted that you can't trust anyone in wrestling. Anderson said he would do anything to get the TNA World Heavyweight Title and offered to fight Morgan right then and there. They were interrupted by TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy, and he said that he intentionally did not do permanent damage to Mr. Anderson when he hit him in the back of the head with a metal folding chair. "I didn't do it because I'm a professional and I know what I'm doing," Hardy said. He then made a tag team match for that night with Anderson vs. Morgan and mystery partners for each man. Cameras then cut backstage to a New Year's party being thrown by Eric Young, dressed as Father Time, and Orlando Jordan, dressed as Baby New Year. Young thought he was Moses and recited a list of commandments about throwing a party. We then cut to the opening match, which was the Chris Sabin vs. Robert Roode bout filmed on December 7. Afterward was another segment with Young & Jordan. Shark Boy joined the party and complained about never being on TV, and Jordan invited Sharkie to sit on his lap and read his Christmas list. Shark Boy said he needed more beer first, and Young said "We need to keep an eye on him. He drinks like a fish." Later Kazarian came to the ring with two models and cut a terrible promo on Jay Lethal's background and famiily. Lethal came out to fight Kazarian, who pulled out a baton and beat Lethal with it. Backstage Foley barged into Eric Bischoff's office as he talked to Ric Flair, and Foley told them to stop messing with Anderson's head. Flair insulted Foley for "inspiring kids to jump off roofs" and said he should be in jail. Foley vowed to be at ringside for the mystery tag team match. After the Strap match we went back to the party, now joined by Brian Kendrick. Young showed off some fighting moves with his Father Time staff, knocking over some drinks. Jordan reminded Young that he wasn't allowed "to poke other guys with [his] staff" and asked him if the girls would ever show up. A camerman then found some girls, as Angelina Love tracked down Sarita and attacked her. Sarita got the upper hand, so Winter came out and chased Sarita off before consoling Love. After another commercial Douglas Williams complained to the cameraman that he needed a tag team partner, and just then Magnus walked in and said he'd be there for him. After that match the party was joined by Tara and Generation Me. Jordan told them that they had to take their shirts off to join the party, which Generation Me readily agreed to. Jordan then said that he was including Tara in the requirement, and he started to dance with her. This made the Bucks jealous, and a brawl erupted. Back in the Impact Zone, TNA Knockout Champion Madison Rayne was carried to the ring by a group of tuxedo-clad men and bragged about her $79,000 Vera Wang gown. She praised her own beauty and insulted Mickie James for being "some backwoods, cornfed, frumpy, flannel-wearing, hardcore country slut." This, of course, brought James to the ring, and she ripped the gown off of Rayne. After another commercial there were brief comments from Morgan, Hardy, and Anderson before we again saw hidden camera footage of D'Angelo Dinero. He was at an animal shelter and told the volunteer that he wanted to get puppies for the kids in the orphanges. He then specifically requested pitbulls, which the volunteer warned him were not good dogs for kids. Dinero, clearly lying, said "You haven't seen the kids in my neighborhood." The implication was that Dinero was buying pitbulls for a dog fighting ring, a la Michael Vick.
Rob Van Dam pinned Robbie E. (with Cookie) after hitting the Five-Star Frog Splash. Robbie was RVD's mystery opponent. After the match Jeff Hardy appeared on the video screen and said RVD would face another "carefully picked" mystery opponent at Genesis before he could get a shot at Hardy.
Sarita defeated Velvet Sky in a Strap match when she touched all four corners of the ring. After the match Sarita attacked Sky with the strap until Angelina Love made the save. Sky then angrily told Love to leave her alone and left the ring.
Jeff Jarrett vs. Amazing Red's "little" brother (with Amazing Red) was a no contest when Gunner & Murphy dragged Jarrett out of the ring as little Red had Jarrett in the Ankle Lock. After the match Jarrett went to Eric Bischoff and said they should make some changes to the $100,000 Double-J Double-M A Challenge, including a height requirement (nobody taller than Jarrett) and a legal waiver. (Crimson's Impact! debut.)
A.J. Styles & Rob Terry defeated TNA Television Champion Douglas Williams & Magnus when Styles pinned Magnus with the Chaos Theory Rolling Suplex.
Matt Morgan & Brother Devon defeated Mr. Anderson & Brother Ray when Morgan pinned Anderson after accidentally hitting him with a Discus Clothesline to the back of the head.

January 6, 2011 Impact! (1.16) - Opened with the segment filmed on December 7 where Immortal attacked the current TNA champions. After the Double J MMA Challenge, the Motor City Machine Guns vs. Fortune match filmed on December 7 was aired. After the match Eric Bischoff, A.J. Styles, and Ric Flair were seen talking in Bischoff's office. Bischoff reamed Styles out for losing the match until Styles snapped and said that everyone loses matches, even the greatest wrestler who ever lived. "This isn't about Ric Flair," said Bischoff. Flair tried to calm Styles down with little success. After that segment D'Angelo Dinero came to the ring and called out whoever had been videotaping him in his private life. Samoa Joe answered the call and said he was tired of people coming to the ring and telling lies. He talked about Pope raising money for children and spending it a strip club, and noted that no orphanages had puppies but "you've had 37 noise complaints at your house this week." Pope came up with answers, saying that he was encouraging the strippers to find salvation and he was saving pitbulls from being put to sleep because he had one as a child and loved the breed. Joe didn't back down, and Pope left the ring still protesting his innocence. Also featured a very good montage of promos by Matt Morgan, Mr. Anderson, and TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy where they talked about each others' character and goals, followed by a parking lot brawl between Brother Ray and Brother Devon. Ray came out with a team of security guards, who then held Devon back as Ray taunted him. Eventually Ray snuck in a kick to the groin on Devon and warned him not to show up at Genesis. After that segment Jeff Jarrett was in Bischoff's office talking about his game plan for Kurt Angle, and Bischoff asked him to take care of Rob Van Dam that night. Jarrett worried about Angle interfering, but Bischoff made it a No DQ match and told Jarrett not to worry. Before the main event footage was shown of an earlier in-ring, sit-down interview with Morgan and Anderson that was moderated by Mike Tenay.
Jeff Jarrett defeated Jonathan Cruz by submission with the Ankle Lock in a $100,000 Double-J Double-M A Challenge. Before the match Jarrett pointed out actor Boo Stewart of "Twilight" fame in the audience and asked if he wanted to take the challenge. Stewart said yes, but Jarrett disqualified him after seeing that Stewart's father was much taller than him. After the match Jarrett refused to release the Ankle Lock on Cruz until Kurt Angle got in the ring from the crowd and fought off Team Jarrett. Angle then picked up one of Jarrett's open contracts/waivers and signed up for the Double-J Double-M A Challenge at Genesis.
TNA Knockout Champion Madison Rayne (with Tara) & Sarita defeated Mickie James & Velvet Sky when Sarita pinned Sky after Tara knocked her out with her elbow brace.
TNA Television Champion Douglas Williams defeated Rob Terry by DQ in a non-title match when A.J. Styles rushed to the ring and attacked Williams. Styles attacked Williams right hand, apparently breaking it.
TNA X-Division Champion Jay Lethal defeated Abyss by DQ when Abyss refused to stop choking Lethal after a 5-count. Abyss continued to attack Lethal after the match as Kazarian slowly made his way to the ring with a microphone and unconvincingly begged Abyss to stop beating Lethal. Kazarian mocked Lethal and shook his unconscious hand as Abyss held him upright.
