    IMPACT Coverage by Bobby James
    August 27, 2014

    From the crowd, Kurt Angle runs down tonight’s card, including the first of three matches between The Hardys, Team 3D and the World Tag Team Champions, The Wolves!

    MVP, Lashley and Kenny King interrupt Angle.

    MVP claims to have lost respect for Kurt Angle because he panders to the fans who, with their smart phones and 140-characters, think they can book a match. MVP mocks NYC fans by calling them “sissified savages with no class and even less dignity.”

    MVP claims Lashley is the “King of New York.”

    Tommy Dreamer enters the ring saying they’re better than this. Dreamer says Lashley finally lived up to his potential and became the most dominant champion professional wrestling has ever seen. Kenny King, with a cheap shot, sends Dreamer flying out of the ring.

    Dreamer, with a Singapore cane, attacks Kenny King. Angle interrupts and books Lashley against Tommy Dreamer in a New York City Street Fight! Lashley attacks Dreamer and the bell sounds.
