    Dixie Carter’s HOF Announcement

    Dixie Carter enters the Impact Zone with the announcement of the 2015 Hall of Fame inductee. She says, “While many are worthy, there is one that stands alone.”

    Carter gives way to a graphic of a guitar and Proverbs 3:14: “For wisdom is more profitable than silver. And her wages are better than gold.” The inductee is revealed: Jeff Jarrett.

    TNA recognizes Jeff Jarrett as one of the greatest wrestlers of the modern era – a visionary promoter – and a dedicated family man. “To a critic no explanation will do. To a fan, no explanation is needed. –Jeff Jarrett”

    Jarrett’s induction takes place next week on Destination America.

    [​IMG]Street Fight | Bram vs. Magnus

    The battle rages outside the ring. Magnus bounces Bram’s head off the ring post and then he rolls his former best-friend into the ring to dish out more punishment. Bram rolls from the ring, but Magnus is relentless against the “Human Hate Machine.”

    Magnus plants Bram with a superplex, but then he catches an elbow to the face when attempting to lift him off the mat. Magnus powers through with a big boot and Bram sends him outside soon after. Bram charges with a baseball slide, but he’s been well scouted and Magnus traps him between the ring and apron. Magnus pounds away with a series of shots.

    Magnus drags Bram from beneath the ring, but he’s caught with a trashcan lid to the face. Bram follows up with a baking sheet before driving Magnus face-first onto the stairs. The street fight takes a maniacal turn when “The Plague of Chesterfield” introduces a larger assortment of hardcore weapons.

    Bram laughs as Magnus crawls away. He rolls Magnus into the ring, but misses with an elbow drop. Magnus capitalizes with a dropkick. As Bram stands, Magnus places a trashcan over his head and swings a chair for full contact. The crowd chants, “One more time,” to which Magnus delivers.

    Magnus connects with an elbow drop from the top rope – it’s good for a near-fall. Bram leapfrogs Magnus a moment later, but inadvertently takes out Earl Hebner. Magnus overpowers Bram again, but Hebner’s slow to recover, resulting in a two-count. Bram connects with a low blow for the victory.

    Winner: Bram

    Post-match: James Storm carries a cow bell into the ring and clubs Magnus in the back of the head. Storm says he hasn’t forgotten about Magnus – and that tonight, he and Mickie James will know who his partner is.


    [​IMG]His Name is Eli Drake

    A recap is shown of Eli Drake’s shocking turn on Drew Galloway during last week’s main event. Drake says, “My name is Eli Drake – and Eli Drake has waited a long time to stand here by himself.”

    He says his motive was simple – he’s not a victim of circumstance; he’s a creator of them. He elaborates by saying that all of his decisions must create circumstances that are advantageous to him. He says Galloway got him in the door, but kept blabbing about people standing up and, “As far as I’m concerned, you can all sit down.”

    He says Micah is a puppet that did as he was instructed. He reminds the audience that his name is Eli Drake, before wondering who’d have ever known that beyond all the talking Galloway did. He says he used Galloway and The Rising for everything he could. Drake says he’s just like every fan – he claims everyone has called in sick at least once while perfectly healthy – that everyone has parasitic friendships – and that some of the women in attendance are in relationships because the men pay their bills.

    Drake says that as long as he’s standing, Galloway will never be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

    Drew Galloway enters in response. Galloway says he recruited Drake because he knew he had a killer instinct. He says he underestimated that instinct, and that Drake’s betrayal hurt him more than anything throughout his fifteen year career.

    Galloway asks the fans what he should do about the betrayal. A “Kick his ass” chant erupts. Galloway vows to make Eli Drake famous. Galloway takes Drake to the mat and pummels him with a series of elbows. Drake shifts the momentum and swings his crutch. Galloway ducks and sets up for a Future Shock DDT, but Drake escapes out of the ring and up the ramp.

    Taryn’s Tantrum & a Confrontation in the Cage

    Taryn Terrell storms into the Impact Zone, shoving past Christy Hemme while Jade and Marti Bell set up a dollhouse at the top of the ramp. Taryn says she blames Hemme and the fans for losing the Knockouts’ Championship. Then she screams, “Dolls! Get in the ring!”

    Jade and Marti Bell lead Taryn into the ring. She says she’s locking herself in the cage – and that she won’t leave until she has what belongs to her. Taryn addresses Gail Kim, saying she’s already destroyed her professionally. She then demands a TNA official, Brooke and her title – now!

    Brooke interrupts Taryn’s tantrum by calling her boring and saying, “Seen it.” Brooke knocks over the doll house on the ramp and says Taryn and her little Doll-ho’s are the only people to blame. Brooke says she and the fans are happy and that Taryn can’t stand it when the fans chant her name. She then screams, “This isn’t the Dollhouse, this is my house,” as she hoists the title into the air.

    Taryn says Brooke has her title – that she’s untouchable. She says no man is worthy of touching her and that no Knockout can touch her in the ring. Brooke says Taryn is so obvious and that she outwrestled and outsmarted her. Brooke invites her to come get the title if she wants it.

    Brooke climbs out of the ring and the arena goes dark. When the lights come up, Gail Kim is locked inside the cage with Jade and Marti Bell. Taryn screams frantically while Gail Kim dominates in six sides of steel. With Taryn distracted, Brooke stalks Taryn around the ring. Taryn retreats, leaving her dolls to fall prey to Gail Kim. Gail finishes Jade and Marti with a double dropkick that sends both women face first into the cage.

    Brooke and Gail stand tall.

    Tigre Uno says, “I believe that Mexico is a great country. I have lived my whole life here in Tijuana. Mexicans are just passionate about our people. We are so proud of our history, who we are. We are so proud of our culture and we love our lifestyle. We are a very hard working people. We love our country.”

    [Recap] Donald Trump: “When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime – they’re rapists.”

    Tigre Uno: “Mostly all Mexicans who come to America are good people. They are good workers. They are artists. They are plumbers. They are construction workers. Some are even landlords. The people who come to the United States work hard. They come to do good things, come to make a life for themselves and their families.”
