    IMPACT opens with Bully Ray and a recap of Dixie Carter being powerbombed through a table!

    Bully says after four long months, he kept his word to the fans. He thanks them and says he couldn’t have done it without all of them. Above all, he says he wants to thank his brother Devon. Devon celebrates in the ring with Bully Ray as The Hardy Boys enter the arena.

    Matt says it’s been 12 years since the four of them were in the ring together. Team 3D and The Hardys agree to face each other – one more time, to which Devon exclaims, “Oh my brother, testify!”

    Homicide dominates until trying for a pin which Low Ki escapes. Homicide attempts to whip Low Ki into the corner, but Low Ki reverses and nails a stiff running forearm. They trade offense and Homicide attempts another Gringo Killer. Low Ki reverses, hits a dropkick and scores a Ki Krusher for the win.

    Backstage: Two men are watching footage from last week when EC3, Rockstar Spud and Rhino approach.


    EC3, Rockstar Spud and Rhino enter the arena. Rockstar Spud demands a moment of silence for “The Queen,” Dixie Carter. The crowd vocally protests Spud’s demands, sending him into a tizzy.

    EC3 demands the termination of Bully Ray from TNA Wrestling. He says it’s a Carter ring and a Carter wrestling promotion – and that he’s not leaving the ring until Bully Ray is fired.

    Kurt Angle interrupts by saying that EC3 is wasting time and that he’ll wrestle tonight or leave the ring. EC3 says he spilled blood in the ring last week and that he’ll not be wrestling this week. Angle again states he’ll wrestle or leave. EC3 refuses to leave. Angle calls out the police.

    Spud says he’s “not taking no orders from no Dunkin’ Donut-eatin’ cops!” The police jump and arrest EC3, Spud and Rhino!

    Mr. Anderson lays out Samuel Shaw with a hard right! Samuel Shaw tackles Anderson and mounts a series of rapid-fire punches. Gunner separates the two and the match ends in a no-contest.

    Backstage: Angelina Love confronts Velvet Sky – to make sure they’re good.


    Video: A recap of Dixie being powerbombed through the table is shown just before never-before-seen footage. The video shows Bully Ray singing the classic “Ding dong, the witch is dead…” song from The Wizard of Oz. Then, medics are shown taking Dixie out of the arena on a stretcher.

    MATCH #3:

    Knockout’s Championship Fatal 4-Way

    Angelina Love vs. Velvet Sky vs. Taryn Terrell vs. Gail Kim (c)

    Velvet attacks the champion, Gail Kim, as Angelina attacks Taryn. The Beautiful People double-team Gail, sending her to the outside. They shift their focus to Taryn, who tries fighting out of a double-team attack, but The Beautiful People prove too much.

    While coming off the ropes toward Taryn, Velvet is tripped and pulled from the ring by Gail. Gail grabs Angelina and Velvet by the hair and smashes their heads together before taking them down with a cross-body from the apron.

    Meanwhile, Taryn Terrell climbs the ring post and jumps, connecting a cross-body with Gail Kim and The Beautiful People. Taryn rolls Angelina into the ring and drops her with a series of clotheslines. Taryn attempts a pin, but Gail interrupts the count.

    Eventually, all four women are in the ring and the Beautiful People begin to argue. Gail attacks both and pins Velvet following an Eat Defeat!

    Winner: Gail Kim

    Six-Man Tag Team Match




    Following the introductions, Roode and Lashley are in to start the match. As they circle one another, Kenny King rushes into the ring to attack Roode. Roode quickly gains control of the match and tags Austin Aries, who slingshots into the ring, landing onto the chest of Kenny King.

    Aries makes a quick tag to Roode, who stomps the chest of King in the corner. Roode tags Eric Young. Following a double-team takedown, EY attempts a pin. Kenny King kicks out and tags MVP. MVP hobbles into the ring and quickly tags out to the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Lashley.

    Lashley overpowers Eric Young, but action spills to the arena floor and EY gains the advantage. EY scouts Lashley from the top rope, but Kenny King pulls Young from the ropes as Lashley tags out.

    King and Lashley alternate tags until EY is finally able to tag Austin Aries! Aries flies around the ring, taking out all of his opponents. Aries rushes toward King in the corner, but King gets his boot up, sending Aries to the floor.

    Lashley reenters the match and begins overpowering his opponents. Aries reverses a power slam and climbs to the top rope, but a crutch to the back of the head, courtesy of MVP, sends him crashing down. When Aries stands, he’s pummeled with a spear and pinned for the three.

    Winners: Lashley, MVP and Kenny King

    Backstage: Abyss heads toward the IMPACT Zone.


    Backstage: The Wolves discuss their legacy and victory over the Hardy Boys. They issue a challenge to Team 3D for the Tag Team Championships – anytime, anywhere.

    Abyss walks to the ring clutching his stomach. He claims Bram has something that belongs to him. He demands Bram’s presence.

    Bram, with Magnus, enters carrying the sadistic weapon known as Janice. Abyss says possession is 9/10 of the law. Abyss demands Bram returns Janice. Bram says she’s all his – and that she drives him wild, every time he drives her into the chest of Abyss.

    Abyss asks Bram – and New York City – if they want to get extreme. Abyss challenges Bram to one more match, where Janice is suspended 15 feet above the ring. Bram accepts!

    Magnus insults “The Monster” Abyss. Abyss attacks Bram and Magnus, but they regroup and leave the ring with Janice in hand. “Stairway to Janice” is official for Hardcore Justice, next week!


    Video: James Storm claims “the revolution is upon us.” He walks into a run-down house, where he’s got Sanada tied to a post. He grabs Sanada’s head and says he’s the light – and that he’ll turn him into “The Great Sanada.”



    Devon and Matt start the match in the center of the ring. They exchange takedowns and Matt tags Jeff. They drop Devon with a double elbow, but Devon is able to make a tag to Bully Ray. Team 3D double-teams Jeff.

    Bully Ray maintains control until Jeff tags Matt and fights off Bully Ray. The Hardy Boys double team Devon. Bully Ray grabs a handful of Jeff’s hair and powers him to that mat. Devon attacks Matt from behind and Team 3D is in control.

    Devon and Bully Ray exchange tags while maintaining the advantage over Jeff Hardy. They whip Jeff into the ropes – he tries to counter – but Team 3D powers him back to the mat. Jeff reaches for Matt as Bully locks in a submission. Jeff fights out. Bully reverses and climbs the turnbuckle.

    Jeff rushes up the ropes and sends Bully Ray flying with a hurricanrana. Jeff goes for a pin attempt, but Bully’s out at two! Each man makes a tag, bringing in Matt and Devon.

    Matt changes the complexion of the match with a Side Effect and a moonsault. Bully breaks up the count on Devon. Devon drops Matt and turns his focus toward Jeff on the top rope. Devon trips Jeff. He climbs and attempts a drop, but Matt comes up behind Devon and hoists him onto his shoulders. Jeff connects with a Whisper in the Wind!

    Devon somehow kicks out at two! Bully Ray is back into that match and Team 3D nails a Doomsday Device! Bully Ray and Devon jump from the ring to “Get the tables!”

    Jeff launches himself over the top rope, taking out both members of Team 3D! Jeff rolls Devon into the ring. Matt nails a Twist of Fate and Jeff follows up with a Swanton! Devon, again, somehow kicks out at two!
