Here is an update on TNA’s ongoing legal dispute against Scott Steiner. The lawsuit TNA filed against Scott Steiner was scheduled to go to trial next week on February 22. However, the trial date was reportedly canceled today (Feb. 19).
This is the fourth time the jury trial date was scheduled and ultimately did not take place. The lawsuit has been delayed on numerous occasions. The legal dispute stems from when TNA sued Steiner in June 2012 for an alleged breach in his contract by speaking disparaging remarks against TNA, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, and Bruce Prichard. TNA wanted damages and an injunction to stop Steiner from continuing to speak out.
Steiner claimed that he never agreed to not disparage the company, and speaking out was not in any sort of breach of his deal with the company, which at that point had expired. In addition, Steiner claimed that his TNA deal expired, and he was offered a new one that he ultimately turned down.
It’s unknown why the latest trial date was cancelled, or if a possible settlement deal was reached.



TNA Executive VP of Television and Talent Relations John Gaburick announced on Friday that Shane Helms has reached a new multi-year agreement with Impact Wrestling to continue his behind the scenes role working with TNA talent.
Helms also issued the following about it.
"This wasn't a tough decision at all, @impactwrestling is where I want to be. To all the 'company' fans out there, I respect your perceived loyalty but the letters that matter most to me are W-R-E-S-T-L-I-N-G. I look forward to the challenge of 'Guiding' the X-Division back to glory. I look forward to the opportunity to keep working with a locker room that is faced with (unfairly so) unseen enemies yet continues defiantly, despite this, to put out the best complete overall professional wrestling show on TV. Not just one style, or one speed, this roster has a little something for everybody. Some you'll love, some you'll hate, but reserve judgment until you actually watch the show. It's a new fresh start for Impact Wrestling, come grow with us. And as for me, love me or hate me, no one can fairly say that I haven't earned my spot. I'll give 100% of what I got until there's nothing left to give. I always have. Thank you to everyone that's supported me. First match in 1991, and another new contract in 2016 ... WHASSUPWITDAT??"

We are in the United Kingdom for the first of what Pope say is the first of five weeks Impact Wrestling will be across the pond. Matt says the fans can boo him all they want, because he’s too rich to care. The fans start chanting for EC3, and Matt ignores them and says the Matt Hardy Brand will teach the Impact Wrestling Brand how to do business because the Matt Hardy Brand is the more valuable of the two. He says the kinds of deviants who would boo him are the same people who would cheer someone like EC3. Tyrus says we have a better chance of Winston Churchill riding out here with his fat ass on a unicorn than we do of EC3 coming out here, and says that he was the one who kept him undefeated for so long. Reby says the fans have some nerve to boo them, especially since Matt Hardy is the hottest, most awesome man alive, and everyone else is jealous. Matt won this title completely on the level, and he didn’t break one rule in the Last Man Standing match. In the last three weeks, EC3, Jeff Hardy, and Kurt Angle have all become victims of the Iconic Matt Hardy, and Dixie Carter hasn’t said a word to him in that time. The fans chant for Jeff, but I’m thinking he won’t be there tonight. Matt agrees with that, and he refuses to leave tonight unless Dixie does what she needs to do to keep her World Champion happy by firing EC3.
Bobby Lashley comes out to the ring, and we’ll see more of him after this break!
Bobby Lashley vs Bram
We see a video before the match of Bram and Eric Young getting excited about ending Jeff Hardy’s career, then we go to Bram jumping Lashley from behind to get an early advantage. Lashley fires back and pops him up into a super impressive delayed vertical suplex. Bram clotheslines Lashley to the floor, but Lashley pops right back up and clotheslines Bram out of the ring, rolls him back inside, then gets tripped by Young while the referee’s back is turned. Bram works Lashley over, and Lashley reverses an Irish whip and tries a leapfrog, but Bram stops short and drills Lashley in the face with a leaping kneestrike. Lashley flattens Bram with a clothesline, easily slams him, hits a couple of corner clotheslines, and pops Bram up into a running powerslam. Lashley sets for the spear, Bram sidesteps, and Lashley crashes into the corner. Bram hits the implant DDT, but is too worn out to make a cover. Eric Young jumps into the ring with his title belt and Bram holds Lashley for a belt shot, but Lashley moves and Young drills Bram. Spear to Young, spear to Bram, and that’s all she wrote.
Winner: Bobby Lashley
Really good big man match, and Lashley has SCARY power with the way he was able to manhandle Bram.
Matt and Reby are backstage arguing over whether EC3 is a threat or not, but Tyrus has it covered because he hired Manchester’s top security team to take care of the issue.
Kurt Angle comes out to the ring, high fiving fans all the way, then gets a mic and tells the fans how hard they’re making it to leave. He’s proud of what he’s accomplished at TNA for the last ten years, and he says he’s looking forward to his matches with Bobby Roode and Bobby Lashley, but his match tonight is…wait, he gets cut off by Maria Kanellis, who says that what he’s saying feels manufactured and fake. What the people here really need is “The Miracle” Mike Bennett, and woudln’t you know it, here he comes. This building looks great on TV, by the way, they got a great crowd into this building. Bennett says he was listening to Kurt in the back, and he really has had a hell of a career. When Bennett was growing up in New England…the better, more advanced England…he’d watch Angle wrestle and do all his moves on his brother, and all he could think is that one day he was going to grow up and beat that guy. Angle says he’s warning Bennett right now to step back and get out of his face. Bennett says he’s missing the point, because what he’s trying to say is that the heights Angle has reached are almost untouchable…for a normal wrestler. He is the Miracle, and Lashley and Roode are both great, but then there’s him, the Miracle. He can see them in a match for the first time and the only time, and when he beats Kurt, the people will answer the question…Do you believe in Miracles? And they will say yes, they do. Angle says Maria is a beautiful woman, but she’s got horrible taste in men. Maria says he is a Miracle, and Angle says he’ll need one, and he turns Bennett inside out with a clothesline and sends him scurrying to the floor. Angle says he warned Bennett, and he doesn’t wrestle guys he doesn’t respect. He respects Drew Galloway, and that’s who he’s wrestling tonight. Speaking of Drew, he’s on his way to the ring right now, and he points at Angle.
Beer Money are backstage heading into their dressing room, and Bobby Roode got James Storm a present…a new beer scooter!
X Division Title Match: Trevor Lee vs Tigre Uno
Tigre tries to get the match off to a quick start, and succeeds by knocking Lee to the floor and wiping him out with a twisty dive. He rolls Lee back inside and unleashes more of his scintillating lucha offense and gets a tornado DDT for 2. He gets Lee in a complicated stretch, but Lee gets out and turns Tigre inside out with a clothesline for a very close 2 count. Lee maintains control until Tigre knocks Lee to the floor with a leaping enziguiri and then hits a flying headscissors off the steps. Lee recovers and rams Tigre into the ring steps, then they head back inside where he hits a flying butt butt, then finishes Tigre off with the cradle driver.
Winner: Trevor Lee
And so poor Tigre Uno goes from being the greatest X Division Champion of all time to the back of the line for a title shot.
Beer Money comes to the ring as Storm rides his new Boozer Cruiser down the ramp, and we’ll see what’s on their mind after this commercial break!
We’re back, and Bobby Roode tells the Wolves to come down to the ring with a referee so they can become five-time champions. The Wolves don’t come out, but Decay does, and Rosemary says that the belts are pretty, but everything pretty eventually rots and dies. Roode reminds them that they’re not the champions even though they have the belts, but since they’re here, he says it’s time to fight. Beer Money goes out after Decay, and they brawl into the ring, the ref rings the bell, and we’re off!
Beer Money vs Decay
Beer Money traps Steve in the ring and Roode quickly puts him in a Sharpshooter, but Abyss breaks the hold and tags himself in. Abyss works Roode over in the corner, then Steve comes in and hits a running cannonball in the corner before hammering Roode with vicious crossface strikes. Roode finally gets the hot tag and Storm comes in and cleans house. All four men wind up brawling in the ring, Roode lays Abyss out with a blockbuster, double suplex on Steve, double suplex on Abyss, they do BEER…..MONEY, hit the DWI, and Abyss pulls the referee out of the ring before he can make the 2 count. The referee calls for the bell.
Winners: Beer Money by DQ
FINALLY, a referee FINALLY disqualifies somebody for doing that! Rosemary comes into the ring with one of the title belts, distracting Roode long enough for Steve to low blow him and then knock Storm out with the belt. Abyss gets Janice from under the ring, but the Wolves come out with chairs to chase them off. Decay hides behind Rosemary, and make their escape since the Wolves wouldn’t hit a woman. Davey gets a mic and tells Decay that they have something that belongs to them and the Wolves Nation. Eddie says they stole their belts and left them laying twice, but now they’re the ones running, so since they want their titles back, they’ll give Steve and Abyss a match where they can actually win them. Abyss says they’re on, and we can do this in Monster’s Ball right here next week. Eddie says it’s time to let the hunt begin.
Reby Sky is backstage and finds Dixie Carter, and she blows smoke up her ass and says Matt really just wants to help her. Reby really appreciates how at home Dixie has made her feel, and she just wants Dixie to keep how scary EC3 can be in mind when she makes her decision later. Gee, I wonder what she’s going to do.
Grado comes out of the crowd and gets a mic saying he has proof that he got screwed during Feast or Fired, but Eli Drake comes out with Manchester’s Greatest Security Team. He sends them down to take Grado out of here, and they turn out to suck at their job so badly that even Grado can outrun them, then they just stand there watching as he suckerpunches Eli and runs to the back.
Drew Galloway is backstage and says last time he faced Kurt Angle was about respect. This time is different because it’s on his home soil, and tonight, he’s beating Kurt Angle.
Madison Rayne vs Jade
Madison rushes the ring, goes after Jade, and spears her out to the floor. Jade powwows with the other members of the Dollhouse, so Madison takes them all out with a dive. Jade drills her with a martial arts kick as they come back inside, then unloads with more kicks. Jade gets a bow and arrow, but Madison rolls onto Jade for 2, then Jade takes control right back with a dropkick to the face. Madison hits a step-up enziguiri to turn the tide, hits a sliding clothesline in the corner, then comes off the top with a bodypress for 2. Madison knocks Rebel and Marti off the apron, Jade gets a rollup for 2, then hits the package piledriver for the win.
Winner: Jade
The Dollhouse puts the boots to Madison after the match, and Marti brings a chair into the ring, but before they can do anything, Gail takes out all three members of the Dollhouse by herself.
Grado finds Billy Corgan backstage and complains about how he was screwed during Feast Or Fired, and he needs Billy’s help getting his job back. Unfortunately, Eli Drake shows up with Manchester’s Greatest Security Force and they start to escort Grado out, but stop just long enough for Drake to knock him out with a hard right hand.
It’s…MAIN EVENT TIME!
Kurt Angle vs Drew Galloway
They feel each other out with the usual waistlock and wristlock stuff to start, and all of a sudden, Angle pops Drew up and plants him with a back suplex. Angle tries to shut Galloway down with a side headlock, Galloway gets out and hits the ropes, and they take each other out with a double clothesline as we go to commercial.
We’re back, and Drew comes off the top with a dropkick, but Kurt catches his foot coming down and gets an anklelock. Drew rolls out and hits the Future Shock DDT for 2. Drew clotheslines Angle to the floor, then goes after him, drills him with a couple of chops, and drops him chest first on the guardrail. Kurt pays him back with a Hacker Slam onto the ring steps, then they go back inside and Angle hits another Hacker Slam for 2. Drew hits a jawbreaker and charges Kurt in the corner, Kurt gets his foot up, but Drew catches the foot and hits a sort of inverted Alabama Jam for 2. Drew puts Kurt on the top rope and hits a super air raid crash, makes a cover, and Angle is somehow able to kick out at 2. Angle pops Drew over with a German suplex, Drew escapes another Hacker Slam and hits the Claymore kick, then he waits for Kurt to get up and hits another one, makes a cover, and Kurt STILL kicks out at 2. Drew goes for a top rope dropkick again, Kurt moves, and he goes to the rolling German suplexes. Angle hits another Hacker Slam, he goes to the top and hits a splash for 2. Angle goes to the anklelock, Drew rolls out, sidesteps a charge from Angle that sends him crashing into the corner, Drew hits a third Claymore, and Kurt still kicks out at 2. Kurt is bleeding out of his mouth, and Drew puts Kurt in the Motor City Stretch as blood is literally hanging off of Kurt’s face. Angle rolls through, goes back to the anklelock, Drew kicks free, and he goes back to the Motor City Stretch. Drew has his hips off the mat to put maximum pressure on Kurt, and Angle finally taps out.
Winner: Drew Galloway
Drew finally defeats Kurt Angle, but Angle sure made him work for it. Great match, and a shake and hug afterward. Angle raises Drew’s hand in victory to end the great segment.
Matt Hardy comes out to the ring with his entourage and demands that Dixie Carter comes out to the ring to give him an answer. Dixie tries to say that her door is always open, but Matt ignores her and says that he is her World Champion, and he can’t even say the name of the man who held the title before him. The fans do it for him and he tells them to stop, then says he hasn’t been this terrible person since winning the title like people say, but EC3 has made both of their lives miserable since last year, and to make both their lives easier, she needs to get rid of the cancer that is EC3. Dixie is hesitant, so Matt tells her not to be a flaky bimbo and orders her to fire EC3 RIGHT NOW. Matt and Tyrus back Dixie into the corner, but Spud comes out with mic in hand, and he says “I’ve got this, madam.” Spud says he isn’t the Matt HArdy he looked up to, but Matt says that if he’s not out here to be a character witness against EC3, he’s not welcome here. Spud isn’t disagreeing with anything Matt is saying, especially since he did most of the terrible things he’s done to him. Matt says that Spud is inconsequential and again orders Dixie to fire EC3, but Spud tells Matt to shut up. Matt tells Spud to go tell Dixie to fire EC3, but Spud refuses and says Matt Hardy seems a little jealous and scared of EC3, and is running like a little bitch. Tyrus suckerpunches Spud and lays him out with the Bodybag, and Matt says now he’s not asking Dixie to fire EC3 anymore, he’s commanding her to do it. They back her into the corner to intimidate her again, but EC3 chooses this moment to make his entrance. He tears his shirt off, stalks down to the ring, lays out Manchester’s Greatest Security Force, beats the crap out of Tyrus, and goes after Matt and Reby, who head for the hills. EC3 glances at Dixie and Spud as he leaves, and that’s it for this week’s show.

Bethlehem, PA 
January 26, 2016 
Announcers: Josh Mathews & The Pope

As the show opens Jeff Hardy was shown arriving earlier today. He says that he has a lot of things to say to his brother tonight. 
Footage of last week’s crazy ending is shown.
Jeff Hardy makes his way to the ring and he says that he has had a full week to let everything set in from last week. He says that what his brother did last week made him sick and he needs some answers from Matt tonight. Jeff calls Matt out and he comes down to the ring alongside Tyrus and Reby with new heel theme music. Tyrus is even carrying Matt’s son with him.
Jeff says he didn’t call Reby nor Tyrus out and he wants to speak to Matt alone because this is a family issue. Reby says that she is Matt’s wife and SHE is his family. She says that she was there for him when the world abandoned him and she was there for him when Jeff abandoned him to play a Redneck Evil Kenevil last year. Reby says that she told Matt to stop giving and start taking for once. She says that he doesn’t need Jeff anymore and their family doesn’t need Jeff nor the fans anymore. Jeff says that he isn’t talking to his “sister bitch in law” which pisses Matt off and demands that Jeff apologize for saying that. Jeff says that Matt is acting like a little bitch too and calls Tyrus “big bitch 3.” Jeff asks Matt what he hell is doing which starts a “why Matt why” chant. 
Tyrus starts to move towards Jeff but Matt stops him and says that it is okay because Jeff is just a little uncomfortable right now. Matt says that Jeff isn’t used to being in Matt’s shadow for a change. Matt says that he took his wife’s advice and it worked as he holds up the World Title. He says that he doesn’t know if Jeff is upset because he is walking around like a cripple but says that is Jeff’s own fault and now Jeff is just “the other Hardy.” Jeff says he can’t be happy or proud for Matt after the way he won the Title and he doesn’t understand what is going on in Matt’s head. Matt says that it is time that they just simply go their separate ways so Jeff can hang out with all the cretins in the crowd while Matt goes on to be the greatest World Champion ever. A big “EC3” chant starts and Jeff says that last time EC3 won the World Title he called EC3 the best wrestler in the planet because he won it fairly. He says that there is only one way to settle this and as everyone knows he is cleared to wrestle again so he wants Matt to make his first defense against Jeff…TONIGHT! Reby whispers something to Matt and Matt says that if he wants this then at this moment he wipes his hands of all guilt for what happens to Jeff tonight and walks away. 
A vignette hypes up the Feast or Fired Match for tonight.

Helms says that Tigre’s time as X-Division Champion is over and Tigre says that he is ready for Helms! 
Backstage Kong talks with The Dollhouse about her match last week and she says that they have never had anyone like Kong in their house. She says that she should have that title and they will help her get it, but tonight is about revenge and about destroying The Beautiful People. She says that she has to take Velvet out alone tonight because TNA has banned Dollhouse from ringside. Kong says that Velvet will be taken out on a stretcher tonight.

Backstage they do the reveal of the Feast or Fired cases. Mike Bennett and Maria interrupt the reveal and mocks them all talking about how one of them will be fired. He says that one of them will need a “miracle” after tonight and says that when you are “The Miracle” you don’t have to take chances like Feast or Fired because everything comes easy to him. He says he likes Trainwrecks so he will sit back and enjoy, and then Galloway gets in his face and asks who he thinks who the hell he thinks he is. Drew says that unlike him they didn’t sit on their ass and wait for something to happen, they took the chance to do something big. He says that it is obvious that Mike isn’t the brains of the operation and looks over at Maria. Maria laughs at him and says that they are doing him and everyone in the company by being in TNA. Bennett says that the next time Drew insults him or his wife he will need a miracle to survive. 
Eli Drake’s briefcase contains the KOTM Title shot, they will reveal the rest later. 
Crazzy Steve has new crazy music and a chick dressed kind of like a cross between Harley Quinn and a Juggalo. She says that in their world they are a little mad and then she starts screaming about “decay.” Steve walks out with a new wild face paint job and new tights. As The Wolves walk up the ramp to confront Steve, Abyss’ music hits and The Wolves look shocked! 
----COMMERCIAL BREAK----
The Wolves vs. Crazzy Steve & “The Monster” Abyss 
Steve and Abyss work on Davey in the corner as footage of the big brawl the two teams had during the break is shown. Abyss hits a Splash on Davey in the corner and then tags in Steve who hits a Backsplash Senton on Davey before locking him in a chinlock while raking the face of Davey. Steve puts Davey in a wristlock and he bites the hand of Davey before putting him in another chinlock. Davey fights back to his feet and breaks the hold with elbows but then Steve distracts the referee as Abyss lays Davey out. Steve hits a clothesline on Davey and tags Abyss back in the ring. Abyss stomps on the hands of Davey and hits a Scoop Slam followed by a Big Splash! Steve tags into the match again and Abyss Chokeslams Steve on top of Davey as Steve smiles for another nearfall. Steve rakes the eyes of Davey and then connects with a series of crossfaces on Davey. Abyss tags in and whips Davey into the corner but as he goes for a Splash Davey rolls out of the way. Steve tags himself in and stops Davey from tagging out only for Davey to kick him off and tag Eddie in. Eddie hits a Mafia Kick on Abyss and then a series of elbows on Steve. Eddie knocks Abyss of the apron and then hits a Slingshot Plancha onto him followed by an Atomic Drop on Steve. Eddie whips Steve into the corner and then lifts him up to the top and connects with a European Uppercut. Eddie goes for the Chin Checker but Steve counters into the Crossface Chickenwing. Eddie counters with an armdrag and then The Wolves catch him with the Alarm Clock out of nowhere! The Wolves set up for the Hammer of the Gods but that woman appears on the stage with the title belts to distract them. Abyss nails Eddie with the Black Hole Slam and Steve spits mist into the face of Davey! 
Winners: The Wolves via DQ 
The woman spits mist into Davey’s face as well and Steve locks him in the Crossface Chicken Wing as she bites Davey’s head! Abyss Chokeslams Eddie in the ring and Steve and Abyss raise the belts over a fallen Eddie while the weird chick poses with them. That chick is Indy wrestler Courtney Rush by the way and she is more than competent in the ring so this should be interesting. 
----COMMERCIAL BREAK----
The next case revealed is Storm’s and they have earned a Tag Title shot! Everyone seems to be slapping Grado on the back, hard, leading to some hilarious facial expressions from him. Galloway opens his case and he has won the World Title shot which means Grado has the pinkslip! It was hilarious seeing Grado smiling and congratulating Drew until it started to dawn on him that it meant he was fired. 
Josh says that EC3 will discuss his future next week. 
----COMMERCIAL BREAK----
Main Event 
TNA World Heavyweight Championship 
“The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy vs. “The Iconic” Matt Hardy (c) w/Reby Sky & Tyrus 
JB does the boxing style intros for this one and as they are about to lockup Eric Young walks out and screams at them to stop. He says that Jeff hasn’t earned this title shot and he should be the #1 Contender because he is the KOTM Champion and then Bram attacks Jeff out of nowhere! 
Winner: NO CONTEST 
An “EC3”chant breaks out as Bram and EY beat Jeff down while Jeff and Tyrus watch on. EY pulls out a table and sets it up at ringside. Jeff tries to fight them off but Bram and EY have targeted his leg. Beer Money run out to make the save but Crazzy Steve and Abyss hit the ring and outnumber Beer Money. Beer Money cleans house on all of the heels and they brawl with Steve and Abyss to the back. Matt comes face to face with Jeff but Kurt Angle’s music hits and he runs down to confront Matt only for Tyrus to attack him from behind. Matt levels Kurt with the title belt and then Matt, Reby, and Tyrus leave as EY and Bram return to the ring to continue the assault on Jeff. Jeff fights EY and Bram off and goes for a Twist of Fate on the apron, but EY stops him and slams Jeff’s head into the ring post.

We start off with a look back at last week when Ethan Carter III defeated Matt Hardy to win the World Title Series and regain the TNA World Title, as well as hype for tonight’s Kurt Angle-Drew Galloway main event. Speaking of Kurt Angle, we see clips of Kurt Angle arriving at the arena and posing for pictures with fans before going to the opening video package.

EC3 is in the locker room looking proud of himself, and Tyurs comes in to tell his boss it’s time. EC3 says that’s damn right and walks out, and Tyrus looks displeased as he follows him out. Pope and Josh are still at ringside and run down tonight’s card, then we go to the ring as the new champion prepares to address his devoted followers. He says this isn’t a moment for celebration, but vindication because he is still unpinned, unsubmitted, unbeatable, and the two-time, undefeated TNA World Champion. The one man who never doubted him is Tyrus, and EC3 says that the fans see business, but it’s personal because they’d been through a lot together, and he can never thank Tyrus enough. He knows Tyrus has a shot at the title, and he’ll be happy to give him that title shot, but Tyrus leaving ringside last week was the best thing for him because he could beat Hardy on his own. Tyrus starts to say he never doubted Ethan, but EC3 yanks the mic out of his hand and goes back to putting himself over until Jeff Hardy interrupts. He’s in his regular ring gear, and I’m guessing we’re going to set up his annual injury angle to explain why he’s not on the UK tour. EC3 welcomes the man who cost EC3 the World Title to begin with, and asks him what he wants. Hardy says he still can’t stand the sound of Ethan’s voice, but Jeff is here to give him something he deserves. He used to think Ethan was a spoiled brat who needs help from everyone, but he didn’t need any help last week, he won fair and square, and he deserves to be the World Champion. Ethan can’t believe what he heard, and Jeff said he deserves it, but for everything Ethan put he and Matt through, tonight is about the Charismatic Enigma, and tonight is about him. He has something to share with Ethan, and pulls out a piece of paper that EC3 looks over before sternly looking at Jeff and folding the paper back up. EC3 says it’s a doctor’s note saying he’s cleared to wrestle, and Jeff says he’s here to go big or go home, and challenges EC3 to a title match. EC3 says he’s wanted a match with Jeff Hardy for all the marbles for a long time, but his request for a title match is denied. The fans turn on that, so EC3 says to hear him out, because Jeff can’t expect to come off the disabled list and walk right into a title shot. If Jeff wants a title shot, he needs to start at the bottom, so EC3 calls out to Bob Ryder to send out some young, hungry wrestler to take on Jeff Hardy right now. Someone in a mask and cape comes out, and EC3 calls for some entrance music for him, and sings lyrics for him along to the beat. He introduces himself as the Master of Motion, Shin-Ron, and tonight, he’s going to fly all over his boy, Jeff Hardy. EC3 eggs him on to say he’s going to beat and destroy Jeff Hardy, and EC3 says that dog has bite, yo! EC3 takes Tyrus and leaves, and a referee comes out to call our opening match. Jeff Hardy vs The Master Of Motion, Shin-Ron EC3 joins the comentary team as Shin-Ron does flippy stuff before playing to the crowd. He does some gymnastics stuff, but Jeff baseball slides him to the floor, then tries to dump him back in but Shin-Ron swings through the ropes and dropkicks Jeff in the face. Shin-Ron with some kind of springboard twisting senton, but Jeff gets the knees up, backdrops Shin-Ron to the apron, then avoids another flippy move. Jeff hits an overhead powerbomb, the Twist of Fate, and that’s all she wrote. Winner: Jeff Hardy The Master of Motion isn’t moving very much right now. EC3 says it’s a long road to the top, and gives Jeff a hand as he celebrates. Jeremy Borash is backstage interviewing Awesome Kong and the Dollhouse, but Marti Bell cuts him off and says the Knockouts Division needed a shakeup, and they showed they are stronger than ever, and they have Kong to thank for that. Kong asks if everyone hates her, then says good, because these girls, this house, it’s his house, and she does what she wants with who she wants. She going to hurt Gail because she’s got something she wants, and…The Beautiful People come in to tell Kong not to worry about Gail, they should worry about the Beautiful People instead. Velvet wants to kick Kong’s ass, and Madison says they don’t need to attack anyone from behind, they can do it right now. Velvet and Madison attack, and get hammered 4-on-2 as we go to commercial. We’re back, and Jade and Velvet are going at it on the ramp as Kong beats up Madison inside the ring. Guess we’re underway… Streetfight: Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne vs Awesome Kong & Jade Jade whips Velvet into the ring steps as Kong chokes Madison on the ropes inside the ring. Jade is tossing the usual array of hardcore stuff like kendo sticks and trash cans into the ring, so I guess this is no DQ. Jade wedges a chair in the corner and then slams a trash can lid into Madison’s back as Kong has her up in a choke. Madison avoids a Lionsault from Jade and a corner avalanche from Kong, and Velvet goes to work on Kong with the chair before laying Jade out with clotheslines. Velvet bulldogs Jade on the chair and then the BPs take Rebel and Marti out with kendo sticks when they try to get involved. They then turns the sticks on Kong, and Madison connects with a missile dropkick for 2. Madison flattens Madison with a cradle piledriver for the win. Winners: Awesome Kong & Jade Kurt Angle is backstage, and he’s…TALKING TO DIXIE CARTER! He’ll face Drew Galloway tonight! We’re back, and Beer Money is headed to the ring where a couple of tables are set up with a load of beers. The crowd is going nuts for them, and Storm says he’s been drinking all damn day. Storm said that he had to make a hard decision on January 5th, and he decided to make a living for his family, and that meant the reunion of the greatest team in the history of wrestling, Beer Money. The crowd chants “welcome back” at them, and Roode says he’s been boozing a bit as well, not as much as Storm too, and he gets emotional when he drinks. He says what tore them apart was what brought them together in the first place: the desire to be the best. They’re cut from the same cloth, and it took Roode years later, when he won his second World Title the right way, he realized what he did to Storm and the fans was wrong, and he wants to say he’s sorry. The crowd chants to hug it out, so they do. Storm says he’s sorry too for kicking him all those times in his face, and he hands Roode a beer. Roode says he’s sorry he smashed a beer bottle over Storm’s head, so Storm pours a beer in a cup and hands it to him. Storm says he’s sorry for leaving Roode with all those bar tabs, and Roode says he’s sorry he puked in Storm’s cowboy hat and blamed it on his dog. Storm asks if he’s really sorry, and then says they’re good so he can make a toast to one of the greatest, if not the greatest tag team partner he’s ever had. Roode has proved that he is the best and the It Factor of professional wrestling, and Roode wants to make a toast to Storm for starting more barfights than anyone, and also for always having his back. Roode also wants to toast the fans all over the world, and Storm wants everyone to raise their drinking hands. Storm and Roode realize something’s not right, and Roode says a beer bash needs to gt loud and rowdy, so they lead the fans in BEER…MONEY! Eric Young’s music hits, and crazy Eric comes out with Bram to tell Roode he makes him sick for toasting to the fans and each other like they’re going to get married. Young hurt Storm in the World Title Series, and quitting was the smartest thing he ever did. He made a mistake by coming back and getting into Young’s business, and Roode knows what happens when he sticks his nose in Young’s business. Young doesn’t need or have friends, and he doesn’t even like Bram, but he likes the way he operates and thinks, and what Young does know is that they hate Beer Money’s guts. Storm says he done hurt their feelings, but Young says this has nothing to do with Storm because he’ll never forget what Roode did to him and that he would ruin Roode for the rest of his life. Roode has something that Young wants: he wants the King of the Mountain Title and wants it now. Roode tells Eric to shut his mouth, and if Young wants to jump him from behind and whine like a little bitch, then Roode wants to kick his ass like a little bitch in a title match right here and now. Young likes that idea, and it’ll be on after this commercial break! King Of The Mountain Title Match: Bobby Roode vs Eric Young We join the match in progress, and they jockey back and forth until Roode gets the advantage with a series of armdrags. Roode goes to the apron and snaps Young’s arm down on the top rope as Storm and Bram get into a confrontation at ringside. Young hits a neckbreaker for 2, then a running version for another 2 count. Young just barrels Roode into the ropes and hits a high angle back suplex. Roode comes back with a couple of clotheslines and a high backdrop, then rams a series of knees into the midsection of Young before popping him over with a Steiner suplex. Roode waits for Young to get to his feet, Young gets out of the Roode Bomb and hits a belly to belly suplex for 2. Young goes for the piledriver, but Roode picks his legs and gets the Sharpshooter. Young gets out and Roode converts to a crossface, then a crucifix for 2. Roode hits a spinebuster for 2, goes for a superplex, but Young bites Roode’s face to knock his momentum. Roode is back up and hits the Roode Bomb, but Bram pulls the referee out of the ring before he can complete the 3 count. Storm spits his beer in Bram’s face and dumps him into the ring where he and Roode double suplex Bram. They do BEER…MONEY! Well, they try because Young knocks Storm out, kicks Roode low, and hits a piledriver to steal the title. Winner and New King Of The Mountain Champion: Eric Young Well, I bet that didn’t turn out the way Roode expected. Young has scored a LOT of wins over Roode, by the way. Ken Anderson is backstage with a microphone that he says has brought him great success and a lot of trouble, but tonight, it’s going to help him debut his new talk show. Tonight’s guest is Matt Hardy, and they’re going to talk about how Hardy choked in the biggest match of his career. Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis find EC3 and congratulate him on regaining the title. Bennett makes his in-ring debut next week, but congratulates him again. EC3 says he heard what Bennett said last week and tries to walk away, but Bennett says he’s just trying to be nice. EC3 says he’s the champ and doesn’t have time for this, and they need to stay out of each other’s way. Bennett says that’s fine because the title looks good on EC3…for now. We see a video package looking at the history of Matt Hardy and EC3, then we go the ring for Ken Anderson’s new interview segment, HUH?!?! Yes, that’s its name. Anderson says a lot of people have accused him of being an asshole, and asks if there are any other assholes in the building tonight. He says his guests tonight aren’t assholes, they’re a very nice family: Matt Hardy, his wife Reby, and their baby son. Anderson lets Reby and the boy sit on his couch, but makes Matt sit on a folding chair because he spares no expense. Anderson asks Matt how he’s doing, then says they’ve known each other for a long time, done some stuff they shouldn’t talk about in front of the fans or Matt’s family, then says they should cut to the chase. Matt was the World Champion, then he lost it, then he had a chance to regain it, and Anderson doesn’t know how else to say it other than he choked. Matt asked if he choked when he won the title at Bound For Glory, he was the only guy who didn’t lose through the entire tournament, and he thought he had EC3 beat last week. But EC3 didn’t beat him, Eric Young gave him a piledriver on the concrete. Anderson doesn’t buy that, and says it just sounds like an excuse for him. Matt doesn’t make excuses, he holds himself accountable for everything he does, and asks if Anderson’s trying to get him to apologize for letting his fans down or something. Matt says you only fail when you quit trying, but he’ll never quit until he’s the World Champion. Jeff came out tonight to lay it down, and asks if Jeff was doing his dirty work for him. Matt says if Anderson wants to get him to share his heart, he admits he loves his wife and son more than anything, but tonight, he’ll make EC3 an offer he can’t refuse. He needs one more match to fulfill his destiny and regain the title because he has EC3′s number. Anderson again seems dubious, and makes sure he’s not quitting or getting Jeff to do his dirty work, and Matt says he’s Matt freakin’ Hardy, and he won’t ever quit because Matt Hardy WILL NOT DIE. Anderson says that’s the Matt he likes, but the Hardys get up and leave, and Anderson says this is awkward, but insists that they were totally into the conversation. Reby gives Anderson her trademark dirty look before heading to the back, and that’s it for Anderson’s debut talk show. We see another Kurt Angle video package as he arrives at the building and gets ready for tonight’s match, then Christy Hemme is in the crowd with Drew Galloway to ask him how he feels about his match with Kurt tonight. Drew says when he was 15, he had his first wrestling lesson, and he hoped he would one day get to wrestle Kurt Angle, and he’s doing that tonight in the main event. He guarantees each of the fans that they’ll see a spectacle tonight. Drew is at his peak, Angle’s been at his peak his entire life, and Angle has to win to prove to himself that he’s the greatest, and if he wants to prove to himself that he’s the best, Drew also has to 100% win tonight. Eric Young and Bram are backstage agreeing that nobody’s crazy enough to stop them and that they can do anything they want, and there’s nothing Beer Moeny can do about it. Tigre Uno & The Wolves vs DJ Z, Eli Drake & Jessie Godderz DJ Z and Tigre Uno start us off, and they do flippy dippy. The championship team tags in and out on DJ Z, then Jessie tags in and gets beat up as well. Jessie finally drills Eddie with a dropkick, then press slams him as Eli blind tags himself in. The heel team works Eddie over for a bit, then Eddie hot tags to Davey, who cleans house on Jessie and catches him in a trailer hitch, then anklelocks DJ Z when he tries to help. Eli finally breaks that up, but Tigre Uno clears him out, Jessie gets the Adonis Crab on Eddie, but DJ Z superkicks his own partner and then the Wolves hit Jessie with Chasing The Dragon for the win. Winners: Tigre Uno & The Wolves The cameras are still following Kurt as he gets ready backstage. Jeff Hardy finds Matt backstage and tells him that he’s still at the top level and can do this with EC3, and Matt says he knows everyone believes in him, and that’s why he is going to give EC3 an offer he can’t refuse. Reby comes in and tells Matt she needs to talk to him, and drags him away as Jeff looks after them puzzled. EC3 comes out to the ring again and says if Matt has an offer, let’s hear it. Matt comes out and says he came from nothing in this business, and everything he has, he earned through his blood, sweat, and tears. EC3 got in because his last name is Carter, but they’ll forever be linked as career-long rivals. Matt says he uses the word fate a lot, and offers EC3 the ability to control his fate. EC3 says he got hit with the Twist of Fate, but he kicked out and tells Matt to continue. Matt will put his career on the line for one last shot at the TNA World Title, and if he can’t beat him, he’ll leave Impact Wrestling forever. If he can’t beat EC3, then it’s time for him to go home. EC3 says Matt really wants this match, and he was really close last week, but he doesn’t respect Matt, his legend, his family name, or anything about him because he’s beaten him time and time again, and Matt CAN NOT BEAT HIM. EC3 says if they do this, they do it on his terms, and it’s the last time they dance. Matt says let’s do this, so EC3 considers for a minute before saying he doesn’t want to pin Matt, make him submit, knock him off a ladder, he wants to stand over Matt as he lays there beaten, defeated, and with his legacy thrown away. EC3 says next week, for the TNA World Title, a Last Man Standing match. He asks if they have a deal and extends his hand to Matt, and Matt shakes and says it’s a deal. It’s main event time! Drew Galloway vs Kurt Angle Drew immediately establishes his power advantage, plowing over Kurt with a shoulderblock. He then displays his speed going behind Kurt with a waistlock and then taking the former champ down with another shoulderblock. Kurt suddenly pops Drew over (see what I did there?) with a big backdrop, but Drew nearly tears his head off with a hard clothesline. Kurt tosses Drew with an overhead release suplex for 2, then locks the big man down with a chinlock. Drew unloads with big right hands, then they wipe each other out with a double clothesline as we go to commercial. We’re back, and Drew is still hammering Angle with hard shots and a charging forearm in the corner. Drew comes off the top with a clothesline, then sets up for the Claymore. Angle dodges and hits the rolling German suplexes and then hits the Hacker Slam for 2. The straps come down and Angle gets the ankle lock, and Drew is caught right in the middle of the ring. He rolls forward and sends Angle careening into the corner, but Angle quickly catches a backslide for 2. Drew quickly hits the Future Shock DDT, but Angle kicks out at 2. Drew goes for a running powerslam, Angle slips out and goes for the anklelock, but Drew reverses to the Border City Stretch, and again has Angle right in the middle of the ring. Angle tries to get to the ropes, Drew drags him back to the middle, but breaks just long enough for Angle to catch the anklelock again. Drew rolls through again, and htis time sends Angle tumbling to the floor. Drew charges Angle and gets caught in an overhead release suplex, but Drew more sort of crashes headfirst into the guardrail. Angle quickly capitalizes by dumping Drew back into the ring and making a cover, but Drew kicks out at 2. Drew hits a jawbreaker and, despite a bad wheel, hits the Claymore and JUST barely misses getting a three count. Drew sets to hit it again, and he connects, but Kurt kicks out again. Drew puts Angle on the top rope, but Angle knocks Drew down and hangs him in the Tree of Woe. Drew actually sits up and suplexes Angle in an impressive spot for a guy his size, and now they go toe to toe in the middle of the ring. Drew plows over Angle with another big clothesline, smacks his leg to bring it back to life, and charges…and misses. Angle hits another Hacker Slam, but Drew is out at 2 again. Angle picks Drew up, but Drew knocks Angle into next week with a headbutt, heads back to the top rope, Angle runs over and hammers Drew with right hands, climbs up after him, and hits a super Hacker Slam for the win. Winner: Kurt Angle





IMPACT Wrestling On Pop Premiere
1/5/16 from Bethlehem, PA
Report via Greg Beck & WrestlingNews.co

We are live with IMPACT Wrestling’s official debut on Pop TV.

New graphics, new opening song (by Billy Corgan). Josh Mathews and The Pope kick off the show.

Dixie Carter is in the ring. She thanks the fans and Pop TV. She says that she picked this network as TNA’s new home because Pop is about fandom. She talks about TNA entering it’s 15th year. She says TNA is committed to making 2016 the most exciting year for TNA. She says that wrestling has always been a vital part of pop culture and nothing is more vital to wrestling than the World Heavyweight Championship. Ethan Carter (with Tyrus) interrupts.

EC3 said that he wants to have a good ole fashioned “airing of grievances.” He says that grievance number 1 is that Dixie was upset when he beat Angle for the title. He said that Dixie was upset because he defended the title successfully each and every week. Grievance number 3 is that she loves him but he doesn’t have the title because of her. He said it is not over until he wins the title tonight. He promised to become 2-time champion tonight. Dixie tells him to take a long, hard look in the mirror so he could see what he has become. She says that Matt Hardy won the championship but EC3 used lawyers and attorneys to get his way and most people feel that Matt was robbed. She asked how it makes him feel. Fans chanted for “Hardy.” Matt Hardy’s music plays and he comes out. Matt declared that he will be the World Heavyweight Champion because it’s his destiny Eric Young attacks Hardy. EC3 and Tyrus joined in. Lashley ran into the ring and cleaned house. Lashley locked Tyrus in a choke but Eric Young attacked. Lashley turned things around, though. Hardy got back up and tossed EC3 out of the ring. Hardy and Young brawled at ringside and then back into the ring while EC3 and Tyrus attacked Lashley.

Commercial break.

EC3 vs. Lashley (semi-final match)

They are off to a good start. This is a good back and forth match. There was a little interference from Tyrus but most of the action took place in the ring. EC3 won the match with a roll up after Tyrus jumped on the apron to distract Lashley. EC3 advances.

Kurt Angle is shown backstage. He says that he has something to say in the ring.

Commercial break.

They aired a teaser for “The Miracle.”

They show Bobby Roode arriving earlier today. Roode says that tonight he will back it up tonight and his open challenge is laid out to anyone from any promotion because tonight they will find out that it pays to be Roode.

Kurt Angle in-ring segment

Kurt Angle comes out to the ring in a suit. Angle says he’s been very blessed. He talks about his Olympic gold medals and his 13 world titles. He says he couldn’t have done it without the fans. Angle starts to get emotional as fans chant his name. Angle said that he has made it public that he will be stepping down. He names Rock, Austin, Undertaker, Triple H, Undertaker, Hogan, AJ Styles, Lashley, Roode, Eric Young, EC3 as great names that he has faced. He said that it is important to have high caliber matches for his farewell tour. Angle says that there is so much talent backstage…guys like Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards. Angle says that he wants to wrestle Drew Galloway for his farewell tour. Galloway comes out and says that he is honored by the things Kurt said and he is honored to face Kurt Angle in the main event next week. Jessie Godderz interrupts. Jessie says that you are looking at “the man…the future of professional wrestling.” Jessie says that the fans want instant access to superstars like him. He talked about starring on CBS’ Big Brother for 7 years. Jessie says that HE (not Kurt) is the veteran on this network and on social media. Eli Drake interrupted. Drake says that the 3 dummies have bored the audience. He mocks Jessie for being cool with 13-year old girls. Drake says that “Anglesaurus” talks about the future of wrestling but failed to mention Eli Drake. Drake is really good on the mic. Good to see him featured in this segment. Drake says that anyone with 2 brain cells can look at Drew Galloway for the waste of space that he is. Drake tells Galloway to stand up and take a walk. Angle says Galloway does things with action but Drake is all talk. Angle says he’s got a few minutes and Drew probably has a few minutes. Angle dares Drake and Godderz to do something about it. A brawl breaks out between the four men in the ring.

The babyfaces get the better of the heels.

Jeremy Borash is backstage and he is trying to get an update on Matt Hardy’s condition. Jeff comes out of the dressing room and says that his brother will be champion by the end of the night.

Commercial break.

They plugged the live One Night Only pay-per-view that airs this Friday night.

Matt Hardy vs. Eric Young (semi-final)

Eric Young is already in the ring as they come back from commercial. Young tells the referee to count Matt Hardy out but Hardy’s music comes out and he limps to the ring. The match is on. Late in the match there was a spot with Young hitting Matt with a piledriver on the floor. Jeff came down to check on his brother but Young nailed him with a baseball slide kick from inside of the ring. Young had things in control and went for a dive from the top rope but Matt caught him in a diamond cutter. Matt Hardy gets the pin. He advances to the finals and will face EC3.

Commercial break.

Eric Young is angry backstage. He says everyone is against him. Meanwhile, in another section of the backstage area we see EC3 and Tyrus walking up to Jeff Hardy. They talk trash. Jeff says that his brother will win and EC3 won’t have anyone to blame after tonight.

King Of The Moutain Championship – Bobby Roode vs. Bram

Bram comes out and says that this is his year. Bram wants to accept the open challenge. Decent match. Roode wins. Young attacks Roode. Young tried to hit a piledriver but Roode reverses and takes out Young but Bram hits Roode with a low blow. James Storm comes into the ring and he clears house. Josh Mathews says that he thought Storm wasn’t part of Impact Wrestling anymore. Storm said that he left Impact several months ago because he didn’t like who he was portraying. Storm said that he’s a beer drinking, Johnny-Cash listening beer drinker from Tennessee. He said that he wasn’t having fun anymore. Storm said that he was sitting at home and came across Impact Wrestling and saw that he got the “biggest disappointment” award. Storm said that he put everything he had into this company for 13 years. He said that guys like him made this damn company. Storm looked at Roode and said that they drank a lot of beer together. He said that they made a lot of money together. Storm says it’s time to get back to having fun. Storm cracks open a couple of beer bottles and gives one to Roode. Storm: “Beer?” Roode hesitates. Storm grabs it and says, “Money.” The old Beer Money theme plays. So it looks like Beer Money is back. Jeremy Borash interviews The Beautiful People. Angelina says she’s not wrestling since she is pregnant but she will be in the corner of Velvet and Madison tonight. Velvet says they are not weak pathetic copies like The Dollhouse. They will be picking a partner to fill in for Angelina.

Commercial break.

Beer Money is backstage. They reveal that they will face EY and Bram on Friday at the One Night Only PPV.

The Beautiful People vs. The Dollhouse

The Miracle debuts

Maria Kanellis comes out first as the lights dim down. She cuts a good promo. She says we are hoping and praying that someone will save professional wrestling. She says we want a miracle because she does and his name is Mike Bennett. Bennett then appears on the stage. He’s wearing a suit and he and Maria walk to the ring. Bennett said that he is the baddest mofo on the show and he is your pro wrestling Jesus. Bennett referred to himself as “your new hero.” He said that pro wrestling needs a miracle because wrestling used to be fun and exciting and it was mainstream when he was a kid. He said wrestling is filled with washed up people that call themselves pro wrestlers. He said that later on tonight Matt Hardy will battle for the TNA world title against EC3 but that is not the moment that will save pro wrestling. He said that the miracle will be when he has the TNA world title and he raises it over his head as fans chant “go Bennett go.” Fans booed him. Matt is shown backstage with his wife and baby. Matt talks about his match tonight. He says he will fulfill his destiny and will become champion.

Matt Hardy vs. EC3 (TNA World Championship Final)

Jeff Hardy and Tyrus are at ringside. Pop has given them an overrun so this show will go past 11pm eastern. Jeff suggested that he and Tyrus leave the ringside area and he agreed so this should be a one on one match without interference. Before the match started, they played a teaser for Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek.”

The Schitt’s Creek promo ran for several minutes. The match starts and Josh tells us that there will be no more commercial breaks so the title match will go on interrupted. Good back and forth match. It looked like Hardy had the match one after hitting a twist of fate but EC3 landed on his stomach so Matt couldn’t get the pin. EC3 hits the 1 percenter and goes for the pin but Matt kicks out. EC3 yells at Matt to stay down but Matt suprises him with a twist of fate. 1-2.. kick out by EC3. Matt sets up EC3 on the turnbuckle. Matt goes for a twist of fate but EC3 blocks it and hits the 1 percenter off the top rope. EC3 is the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

That’s the end of the show.
