DEATH DO US PART”
The show opens with JB and Karen Angle, accompanied by her
daughter, dressed in a wedding gown exiting a limo when Eric Young interrupts
them. Eric needs help from JB because Eric has to wrestle a real life monster
tonight – Rellik. Mrs. Angle tells Eric to get lost because JB is her Maid of
Honor. Eric leaves laughing. .

Ringside announcers: Mike Tenay and Don West
Ring announcer: David Penzer
Ring valet: SoCal Val
Backstage interviews: Crystal Loutham and Jeremy Borash
Don West tells the audience that we may find out tonight why
Tomko did what he did at No Way Out and Awesome Kong faces O.D.B. in a Street
Fight, Abyss will go one on one with Scott Steiner.
Tenay tells the audience that it is Valentine’s Day and
Kurt and his Mrs. will renew their wedding vows – maybe they could just hop
over to WWE and have a double ceremony with Edge and Vickie Guerrero – and
bore us only once instead of twice.
Jim Cornette is in the ring to get Samoa Joe to sign his new
contract. Matt Morgan has been banned from the iMPACT Zone, Angle is busy and
there is no table in the ring. Cornette introduces Samoa Joe who enters the ring
and prepares to sign his contract.
However, they are interrupted by Christian Cage’s entrance
music. Christian enters the ring to tell Joe that he knows Joe was doing his job
when he chased AJ Styles out of the arena and away from the ring. Tomko entered
the ring and interfered on Angle’s behalf and therefore Christian wants Joe to
join forces with him to face AJ and Tomko in a tag team match. Joe tells
Christian that his chase for the title is over because according to Cornette,
the next title shot belongs to Joe. Joe says it has been a long time since he
has been in a fight at the iMPACT Zone and Joe wants to fight. Joe then tells
Christian that he will join him in a tag team match and they shake hands on it.
Cornette becomes upset with Joe because he hasn’t signed
his contract yet but Joe says his personal business is more important than TNA
business and once he has taken care of his personal business, he might come back
and take care of TNA business. Joe leaves the ring again without signing his TNA
Crystal is backstage with Tomko. She asks him why he did what
he did at Against All Odds by helping Angle retain the title. Tomko tells
Crystal that Cage has been like a monkey on his back and Tomko and Christian
Cage are over. Crystal asks where Tomko stands with the Angle Alliance. Tomko
says he is going to have a little chitchat with Angle.

Crystal is backstage with AJ. Crystal says she knows that AJ
is upset about something but she wants to know about the challenge match that
Christian Cage and Samoa Joe have coming up tonight against AJ and Tomko. AJ
says he didn’t agree to any match and Crystal says that Cornette has already
approved the match. AJ says that the Angles are going to renew their vows. Angle
shows up and wants to know why AJ is upset about them renewing their vows. AJ
complains about the match he and Tomko have tonight and Angle says that AJ made
Christian mad and whatever happens tonight happens because Angle is busy with
what he has to do tonight. He tells AJ that AJ is the best man and to wear his
suit. AJ jumps up after Angle leaves and tells Crystal that Angle is marrying
AJ’s woman and he’s not wearing a suit.
Team 3D, from New York City, NY
Accompanied to the ring by Johnny Devine
Before Team 3D’s opponents are introduced, replay of the
Against All Odds match which Jay Lethal won by pinning Johnny Devine, becoming X
Division champion again and saving the entire X Division.
Curry Man from Japan
Shark Boy from The Deep Blue Sea
Referee: Rudy Charles
Before the match can begin, referee Earl Hebner enters the
ring with a scale in order to weigh in Ray and Devon. Brother Devon manages to
weigh in at 275 but Brother Ray, even after removing as much as he can without
killing the audience, can’t make it. It becomes a handicap match with Brother
Devon taking on Curry Man and Shark Boy.
Shark Boy goes after Devon while his back is turned and has
him down on the mat. Shark Boy goes outside of the ring to work on Devon some
more before coming back in the ring. Shark Boy takes Devon down to the mat again
and then misses a drop. Devon then picks up Shark Boy and drops him to the mat.
Shark Boy is in trouble as Devon delivers a flurry of fists and then uses a knee
to hold Shark Boy down. Shark Boy comes off the ropes and gets nailed in the
head by Devon, which again drops Shark Boy to the canvas. Devon delivers a head
butt, picks him up again and tosses Shark Boy out to the floor. Ray picks Shark
Boy up, delivers a fist and then sends Shark Boy into the ring. Devon goes for
the cover but Shark Boy kicks out. Devon slams Shark Boy down to the mat and
goes up to the middle rope. Devon dives off but Shark Boy manages to roll out of
the way and gets the tag to Curry Man. Curry Man comes in and slams Devon to the
mat. Curry Man delivers a jawbreaker and then sets Devon up on the ropes and
delivers splash that sends Devon down to the mat. Devine is on the ring apron
and Shark Boy brings him over the top rope and into the ring. Shark Boy delivers
a stunner to Devine. Devine rolls out onto the floor and Shark Boy is going
after him as Curry Man climbs up to the top turnbuckle. Ray comes up on the ring
apron with the scale and slams it over Curry Man’s head as the referee is busy
trying to get Shark Boy back on the ring apron. Devon covers the downed Curry
Man and gets the three count.
Devon of Team 3D
After the match, Brother Ray enters the ring with kendo stick
in hand. He goes after Shark Boy who bails off the ring apron and onto the
Crystal is with Booker T who is sitting in the parking lot
waiting for Robert Roode to arrive. Booker T says he is going to snap Roode’s
neck when he gets to the iMPACT Zone.
Coming up, The Monster Abyss faces Big Poppa Pump.
Back from commercial break, promo for TNA live events. For
information regarding all TNA’s live events, go to www.tnawrestling.com.
Rellik tells Eric Young that he is going to drill a hole in
Eric’s head and suck out his brains with a straw – maybe that’s a little
too much information there, Rellik – and then he is going to stick his claw
into Eric’s chest and rip out Eric’s heart and eat it – again, a little
too much info – and finally he is going to poke both of Eric’s eyes out,
stick them in a martini and drink it – who writes this stuff? – after his
victory. And, to top it all off, Rellik is going to stir the martini with the
finger that he is going to bite off Eric’s hand. Eeeeuuwwww, that’s just
West and Tenay are blah, blah-ing about the Angles renewing
their wedding vows before they tell the audience that it will be Tomko and AJ
Styles going up against Christian Cage and Samoa Joe, O.D.B. and Awesome Kong in
a street fight, and Abyss one on one against Scott Steiner.
Tenay then tells the audience they are going to see
highlights of the Barbed Wire Massacre II Match at Against All Odds. Abyss won
the match and there was blood for everyone. Father James Mitchell did receive a
black hole slam but it wasn’t as bad as Judas Mesias receiving a black hole
slam into the barbed wire.
Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner from Detroit, MI
Accompanied to the ring by his latest freak, Rocka Khan
The Monster Abyss at 6’8”, weighing 350 lbs.
Referee: Andrew Thomas
Poppa Pump Scott Steiner
The Monster Abyss refused to enter the ring and left the arena.
Abyss enters the arena and walks to the ring with bandages on
his arms. Abyss does not enter the ring, but stands at ringside holding onto the
ring post before going up the steps to the ring apron, shakes his head no and
then steps back down to the floor and goes back up the entrance ramp. As he goes
up the ramp, he removes his mask and exists the arena. He threw down the mask
but his back was to the crowd so we could not see his face.

road to Destination X with live events.

Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner is in the ring with a mic. He
tells the audience that he didn’t just come to the show to look good, he came
to kick somebody’s BLEEP. He talks about his win at Against All Odds and that
from here on out, things are going to be done his way. He introduces his
favorite freak, Rocka Kahn. He says nobody touches his freaks. He invites anyone
in the locker room to come out to face him. Maple Leaf Muscle Petey Williams
answers the challenge. He calls Steiner’s freak, Cloverleaf, and tells Steiner
that he has screwed him for the last time. He tells Steiner he is Maple Leaf
Muscle and tonight Petey is the winner and Steiner is the loser.
Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner
Maple Leaf Muscle Petey Williams
Referee: Andrew Thomas
Petey enters the ring with double knees to Scott’s head and
then lays into him with fists. Petey goes after the legs and delivers a face
plant. Petey goes up to the top turnbuckle and comes off with a cross body block
then goes for the cover but Scott powers out. Petey goes up on the second ropes
and delivers more fists before Scott power slams Petey to the mat and then
delivers a boot to the midsection. Scott picks up Petey and delivers a
belly-to-belly suplex. Scott gets a two count but then picks Petey up by the
hair. The ref is arguing with Scott, but he slams Petey into the corner post and
then delivers a heavy chop before sending Petey off the rope and delivering a
clothesline and then an elbow drop. Scott goes for the cover and then stops to
do a few pushups in the ring. The ref again argues with Scott but Scott tells
the ref to shut up. Scott picks Petey up and delivers another belly-to-belly
suplex, sending Petey across the ring. Scott uses his boot to choke Petey. He
picks Petey up again and sets him up on the top turnbuckle, climbing up after
him. Petey fights back, sending Scott down to the mat. Scott gets back to his
feet and Petey delivers a boot to the face before coming off the top and
delivering a DDT. Both men are now down on the mat. Both men are back to their
feet, Scott charges Petey, Petey steps out of the way. Petey comes after Scott
with forearms but Scott shoves Petey across the ring. Petey ducks Scott’s
clothesline, comes off the ropes and is caught by Scott who appears to be
setting up for a power slam but Petey delivers a hurricanrana to Scott instead.
Petey pulls Scott away from the ropes and goes for the cover. He gets a two
count before Scott grabs the bottom rope. Petey rolls Scott up in a small
package and gets a two count before Scott breaks the hold. Scott again charges
at Petey and Petey sends him into the ropes. Petey comes off the opposite ropes
and delivers a dropkick to Scott’s back. Petey delivers a boot to Scott’s
midsection and goes for the Canadian destroyer but Scott picks Petey up and has
him over his shoulders. Petey grabs the top rope and holds on to prevent Scott
from power slamming him to the mat. As Scott turns around, Petey lets go of the
ropes and drops to the floor trying to flip Scott over for a roll up but Scott
doesn’t budge. Scott reaches down and picks Petey up but Petey comes back with
another boot to the abdomen. Petey tries for a jawbreaker then comes back with a
sidekick that sends Scott to the mat. Petey goes out on the ring apron to climb
up to the top turnbuckle but Rocka grabs Petey’s leg, causing him to fall.
NOTE: I think Rocka and Karen Angle
use the same hairdresser. Scott is now back to his feet and he delivers fists to
the side of Petey’s head and jaw. Scott goes up on the second rope and brings
Petey down to the mat. Scott goes for the cover and gets the win.
Poppa Pump Scott Steiner
a little help from Rocka Khan
After the match, Scott stands over Petey, then he makes the
ref get out of the ring. Scott brings Petey up to his feet and Petey is ready to
fight again, but Scott pats Petey on the shoulder to tell him he did a good job
before exiting the ring.
Crystal is backstage with Angle and Tomko. Angle tells Tomko
he is grateful for what he did at Against All Odds. Tomko tells Angle that he
crossed the line on Sunday but he did it for a reason. Tomko says that he sees
there is strength in numbers and he will join the Angle Alliance but at no time
during their business agreement will he be Angle’s bitch. Angle says they have
an understanding. Angle wants to know if Tomko is coming to the wedding and
Tomko says no before he leaves the room.
Remember all those nice things I had to say about Tomko a few
weeks ago? I take them all back.
Tenay says that he is getting word that Christian Cage has
been laid out in the back. Tenay says he wonders how this is going to affect the
match tonight that Christian had scheduled with Samoa Joe as his tag team
partner. The camera then shows the audience that Christian is unconscious on the
locker room floor.
Back from commercial break, JB is backstage with Angle’s
Mrs. but they are again – thank goodness! – interrupted by Eric Young who
wants to know if JB heard what Rellik said. JB says no and Eric tells JB what
Rellik before the queen of shrieks tells Eric that he is going to get out of the
room and leave her Maid of Honor alone. Eric should have pulled a Robert Roode
– and gone for the jaw. No one in the audience would have been upset,
West points out that James Farrier of the Pittsburgh Steelers
is in the audience.
Tag Team Revenge Match
The Prince of Phenomenal AJ Styles
TNA World Tag Team Champions
Samoan Submission Machine Samoa Joe from American Samoa
Joe has a mic and tells Tomko and AJ that he has no idea what
happened to Christian in the back but he is damned sure they had something to do
with it. Joe says he would love to come down and beat them both up himself. He
introduces his partner.
The Instant Classic Christian Cage’s replacement
Referee: Earl Hebner
Tomko and AJ don’t look happy that Nash has been brought
into the match but they bail out of the ring and head up the entrance ramp to
take them on. Joe and Nash are ready and they all end up at ringside. Nash has
Tomko up against the ring apron while Joe gets AJ in the ring and delivers a
high knee to AJ’s head. Joe uses a boot to choke AJ as the ref is trying to
get Joe to break the hold. Joe then uses his boot to rake across the top of
AJ’s head several times before releasing his grip. Joe goes back across the
ring and charges across to deliver a hard boot to the side of AJ’s head. As AJ
is struggling to get back to his feet, Joe goes back across the ring and
delivers a fist to Tomko who has managed to get up on the ring apron. Tomko goes
back down to the floor against the guardrail as Joe turns back to AJ. AJ is back
to his feet but Joe delivers two chops on AJ’s chest and then goes for a slam
but AJ manages to break free. AJ comes off the ropes but is met by Joe who sends
AJ crashing to the mat. Joe then delivers a chop to AJ’s back and a boot to
the chest. Joe comes off the ropes and delivers a knee to AJ’s skull. Joe goes
for the cover but Tomko is back up on the ring apron and he enters the ring.
Tomko nails Joe in the back. The ref tries to get Tomko back on the ring apron
but he goes after Joe. Joe delivers a fist that backs Tomko up. As Tomko turns,
he faces Nash who delivers a fist and sends Tomko reeling back to Joe. Joe sends
Tomko through the ring ropes and down to the floor outside the ring. Nash is now
in the ring, picking up AJ. Nash sends AJ toward Joe who sends AJ up over his
back and over the top rope onto Tomko who has just gotten back to his feet.
BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH!
HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
Back from commercial break, Joe is in the ring, he goes
across the ring to deliver a suicide dive to AJ or Tomko on the floor but Tomko
catches Joe as he gets to the ropes. Tomko goes back around to his side of the
ring and enters, picking up Joe and delivering chops to the chest. Tomko appears
to be yelling at AJ but I can’t hear what he is saying. Have Angle’s Mrs.
come in and translate for you. I’ll
be able to hear without my TV – I’ll just open a window. The distraction
gives Joe time to come back at Tomko and he does, catching him with fists. Joe
comes off the ropes but meets Tomko’s elbow and Joe is back down on the mat
again. Tomko goes for the cover but Joe powers out after the one count. Tomko
reaches up and tags in AJ. Double team and the ref sends Tomko out of the ring
as AJ kicks Joe in the skull before sending him face first into the top
turnbuckle. AJ tags in Tomko and we again have a double team as Tomko holds Joe
and AJ comes off the top rope to deliver a forearm to Joe on the way down. Tomko
goes across the ring after Nash and nails him with a fist. Tomko and AJ are both
in the ring with Joe. Tomko sends Joe into the ring post and then sends AJ
across the ring to deliver a splash. AJ grabs Joe to send him across the ring,
but Joe gets a switch and delivers a shot to AJ and then delivers a high kick to
Tomko when he charges. Joe is on the wrong side of the ring, but he’s looking
around for a tag. Nash is yelling at Joe. Joe gets to his feet and runs toward
Nash. Tomko grabs Joe but Joe manages to make the tag and as Tomko slams Joe to
the mat, Nash enters the ring. The ref didn’t see the tag and now Tomko and AJ
are working on Joe as Nash is being held back by the ref. Nash moves the ref out
of his way and goes across the ring to go to work on Tomko and AJ. Nash sends
Tomko across the ring and greets him with a big boot to the face as he comes
off. AJ is back to his feet and he sends a fist into Nash’s jaw. AJ tries to
send Nash across the ring but Nash gets the switch and sends AJ across instead.
AJ goes up and over the top rope to land on the ring apron and then delivers a
shoulder to Nash’s midsection as he comes after him. AJ tries to springboard
off the top rope, but Nash has AJ by the throat and he crotches him on the top
rope, then delivers a hard right. Nash goes after AJ who is now hung in the
ropes and Joe and Tomko are getting back to their feet in the ring. Angle comes
down the ramp and goes after Joe. He nails Joe in the face and Tomko has Joe up
on his shoulders to deliver a slam. Tomko goes for the cover and gets the three

You know the one – where Angle interfered in order for Tomko and AJ
Styles to win the match they were in against Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash.
Crystal is backstage with Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash. She asks
about the match and Samoa Joe says it was a declaration of war. Joe says he will
never get Angle in the ring one on one unless Joe destroys the Angle Alliance.
Joe tells Angle to bring the Angle Alliance to the ring. Joe said that he will
be there, Kevin Nash will be there, Christian Cage will be there and they will
take out the Angle Alliance once and for all. Joe also says that if Angle thinks
the war will begin at the next pay per view, he is sadly mistaken. It starts
tonight. Go, Joe, GO!
Rellik from Salem
Showtime Eric Young Residing At An Undisclosed Location
Referee: Rudy Charles
Eric looks extremely worried about this match and I don’t
think I blame him. Rellik not only looks strange, he’s tough. Eric makes it
into the ring and faces off, sort of, with Rellik. The fans are behind Eric as
he and Rellik lock up and Rellik shoves Eric back against the ropes. The ref
tells Rellik to break, Rellik backs up and then charges but Eric gets out of the
way and comes back with a boot to the midsection that doubles Rellik over.
Rellik straightens up, Eric goes back and comes off the ropes to get a boot to
the face delivered by Rellik sending Eric crashing to the mat. Eric is back on
his feet and works the crowd to get them behind him. Eric ducks a fist thrown by
Rellik and nails Rellik with a fist. Rellik doesn’t move. Rellik again throws
a fist, Eric ducks and connects with a fist to Rellik’s jaw and then another.
Eric continues to pummel Rellik with fists to the jaw before sending Rellik into
the ropes. Rellik comes off the ropes and Eric greets him with an elbow. Eric
swings around and catches Rellik with a clothesline that sends Rellik to the
mat. As Eric works the fans around the ring, Rellik goes back and gets the mask
he has removed when he entered the ring. He puts that mask on and as Eric pulls
Rellik to his feet, he sees the new mask on Rellik’s face. Eric goes backward
and lands on the mat trying to get away from the new “monster”. As Eric gets
back to his feet, he is caught by a clothesline thrown by Rellik, sending Eric
to the mat. Rellik goes for the cover and gets the three count.
And he did it all by himself, unless of course, you count the
two masks he was wearing.

Referee: Earl Hebner
I’m not certain what this match is all about but I like the
participants. The bell rings and all three men are in the ring. Rave stops to
rock and roll on his air guitar, causing Homicide to tap him on the shoulder.
When he turns around, he is met by Sabin’s fist and Sabin and Homicide take
turns whaling on Rave. Rave hits the mat as Homicide delivers a boot to
Sabin’s midsection. Homicide comes off the ropes, goes across to the opposite
side of the ring and comes off those ropes, blocks Sabin’s arm drag and takes
Sabin down with an arm drag of his own. Sabin brings his legs up and catches
Homicide with his boots, then gets to his feet and brings Homicide down with an
arm drag. Sabin charges Homicide, Homicide sends Sabin over the top rope but he
lands on the ring apron. Sabin blocks a fist by Homicide then nails Homicide
with a blow. Rave meets Sabin on the ring apron, Sabin swings at Rave and
misses, Rave slams Sabin back first onto the ring apron. Homicide comes across
the ring and through the ropes to take Rave down with a suicide dive. Nice dive,
Homicide! Homicide walks around a downed Rave and rolls Sabin the rest of the
way into the ring then follows him in. Homicide tries to set Sabin up but Sabin
gets out of the hold, swings at Homicide, Homicide ducks under the swing, Sabin
comes off the floor and delivers a boot to Homicide’s head. Sabin rolls
Homicide up, Rave comes in and delivers a kick to Sabin to break the hold. Rave
picks up Homicide but Homicide takes him over his head and down to the mat.
Homicide picks up Sabin and delivers a couple of fists before backing up into
the ropes. As Homicide comes at Sabin, Sabin picks Homicide up but Homicide
breaks free and drops down to the mat. Sabin again tries for a pin but can’t
get the three count. Homicide is back to his feet and Sabin delivers a kick in
the abdomen. Sabin comes off the ropes and delivers a lariat to the back of
Homicide’s head then comes off the opposite ropes, springboards off the second
rope but Homicide catches Sabin and sends him down to the mat. Rave is back on
his feet and he charges Homicide, throws up a boot but Homicide catches his foot
and slings him over down to the canvas. Homicide hits Sabin with a baseball
slide that sends him out to the floor. Rave is back to his feet again and he
nails Homicide with a spinning neck breaker. The ref is checking on Rave who is
leaning against a ring post. I can’t tell if he is having trouble standing
after that toss that Homicide delivered. Lance is on the ring apron with a steel
chair but before he can hit Homicide, Hernandez takes the chair away and now
Hernandez and Lance are face to face on the floor. Note to Lance – HERNANDEZ
NOW HAS THE CHAIR! It appears that Montoya now has the chair and Sadler steps in
between Montoya and Lance. Lance shoves Sadler down to the floor and as
Hernandez holds Lance, Montoya slams the chair over his head. Lance hits the
floor with Christy looking on. Rave is now leaning over the top rope yelling at
Hernandez and Montoya as he sees Lance is down. Taking advantage of the
distraction, Homicide rolls Rave up and gets the three count.

Rhino enters the arena to the cheers of the fans. He runs and slides into the

Against All Odds.
Rhino now has a mic and he tells everyone that he has
something to say, a lot to say, but there is one person he has to say it to and
that is James Storm. Rhino says he isn’t going to whine and cry about how
Storm reintroduced alcohol into his life. He is going to say that Rhino screwed
up and that he hurt his family, his friends and his fans. Rhino wants to know if
James Storm is a man and does James Storm have balls. The fans punctuate
Rhino’s conversation with chants of “Rhino”. Rhino tells Storm if he is a
man and if he has balls, he will come out to the ring at Destination X and face
him man to man. Rhino then says they shouldn’t do it in the ring, they should
do it in the most dangerous match in professional wrestling – 15 feet above
the ring in an Elevation X Match. Okay, even I am intrigued. Rhino says that
even 15 feet about the ring, he will take out Storm with a Gore, GOre, GORE!

ODB doesn’t waste any time but charges up the ramp going
after Kong. Kong shoves ODB sending her down the entrance ramp. ODB again
charges at Kong but Kong picks her up and throws her down to the floor. Kong
drags ODB around by her hair before nailing her with a fist. Kong has a steel
chair in her hand but as she swings, ODB gets out of the way and Kong nails the
ring post instead. ODB delivers a boot to Kong’s midsection and goes after her
again. ODB has Kong by the leg but she can’t get her off the ground. ODB backs
up and charges at Kong, Kong moves away from the guardrail and ODB goes over the
guardrail and onto the floor in the audience area. Kong comes over the guardrail
after ODB and when she catches up with her, delivers a boot. Kong picks ODB up
by her hair and slams her into the wall in front of the second set of audience
seats. Tenay breaks in to tell the audience that we have to take a commercial

Back from commercial break, Kong and ODB have made it back to
the ring. Kong rolls ODB into the ring and goes in after her. During the
commercial break, ODB spits soda in Kong’s face but ODB doesn’t seem to have
gotten the better of Kong. As ODB goes across the ring, Kong’s companion grabs
ODB’s ankle, causing her to fall to the mat. ODB gets back to her feet and
leans out of the ring, grabbing Kong’s companion by the head but Kong comes up
behind ODB and nails her in the back, making her break the hold. Kong delivers a
chop to ODB’s chest as Gail Kim comes down to the ring and faces off with
Kong’s companion. OBD is down on one knee in the ring as Kong comes through
the ropes to the outside of the ring. Kong nails Gail in the back as she makes a
grab for Kong’s companion. Kong then picks Gail up by the hair and sends her
shoulder first into the guardrail. Kong gets back up on the ring apron and
enters the ring. Kong picks ODB up by the hair but ODB responds with a fist to
the jaw and then another. ODB sends Kong across the ring but Kong gets the
switch and sends ODB into the ring post. Kong charges ODB but ODB brings up both
boots and catches Kong. ODB ducks under Kong’s clothesline, comes off the
ropes but this time is caught by the clothesline Kong has waiting. Kong climbs
up on the second rope, but Gail is on the ring apron, hanging onto Kong’s leg.
Kong grabs Gail by the head but Gail manages to shove her hands away and throws
fists at Kong’s face. Kong turns back towards ODB and ODB nails her with a
fist, sending her back toward Gail. Gail responds by sending another fist and
the two take turns working on Kong. ODB swings at Kong, Kong catches ODB’s arm
and slams her down to the mat. Kong takes a swing at Gail, but Gail ducks and
when Kong turns back toward ODB, Gail grabs Kong by the arms. ODB charges at
Kong, but Kong breaks free of Gail and ODB runs into Gail, sending her down to
the floor. Kong delivers a boot to ODB’s abdomen, then delivers the implant
buster, goes for the cover and gets the three count.
After the match, ODB and Gail are in the ring. ODB is not
happy and she shoves Gail. Again ODB shoves Gail. The third time ODB shoves
Gail, Gail goes down to the mat. Gail gets back to her feet and delivers a hard
shove to ODB sending her down to the mat. ODB gets back to her feet as Angelina
Love and Velvet Sky enter the ring to break up the disagreement.
Crystal is in the parking lot with Payton Banks who
approaches Booker T to apologize to Booker T and to tell Booker T that she just
got a phone call from Robert and he will not be here tonight. Booker T tells
Banks to call Robert back and if he doesn’t show up next week, Booker T will
go to Manhattan and find him. Cornette appears to talk to Booker T and says that
he has given Booker T an opportunity to get Robert Roode for what he did to
Sharmell at Destination X. Cornette says Booker T can’t be sitting in the
parking lot every week like a stalker or a serial killer. Cornette says that
Booker T is scaring his wrestlers into no-showing the wrestling program and
it’s bad for business. Cornette says that next week on iMPACT, Booker T will
be in the main event one on one against Kurt Angle and Booker T can take his
frustrations out on him.
Back from commercial break, the moment none of us has been
waiting for so if you’ll excuse me, I’ll just cover the basics and certainly
not the play by play of this…wedding vow thing.
Kurt Angle with his best man, AJ Styles
Karen Angle with her maid of honor, Jeremy Borash, and her
daughter. Don’t they have any other family members they can drag into this?
Angle showed up wearing his title belt no less.
How romantic is that? AJ is sort of wearing a suit, no tie and his shirt
Don West’s commentary is making me ill.
The audience is chanting something the “minister”
doesn’t seem to care for. I think
it’s “Angle Sucks”.
The minister asks if any man in this building should have
cause for these people not to be joined in holy matrimony to speak now or
forever hold your peace and…
Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash enter the arena. Joe says that he
objects. Joe said they were going to wait out in the parking lot and jump Angle
with baseball bats but even they couldn’t sit back and let him make the same
mistake twice with that dime store gold digging’ skank. Gee, Joe, tell us how
you really feel. Joe says that in lieu of the glorious ceremony he and Nash are
going to come to the ring and beat him and to trust Joe because it’s real,
it’s damned real.
Joe and Nash head for the ring or the church or whatever the
heck it is. AJ lands on Kurt’s Mrs. the minister gets knocked down, Joe has
his hands on Angle and they have him at the guardrail, they’ve taken off his
jacket his shirt, his title belt and his pants then Joe runs him headfirst into
the front wall of the entrance ramp and Angle is down on the ramp.
In the ring, or whatever, AJ is taking care of Angle’s Mrs.
when the minister gets back to his feet and pronounces AJ and Karen husband and
wife. He tells AJ he can kiss the bride and AJ does just that. Angle is at the
top of the entrance ramp looking on in disbelief.
And that’s the end of the show.
