“TIL 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. .

WELCOME TO THE iMPACT ZONE!

iMPACT is broadcast from Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida

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 contract.

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.

Commercial break.

Back from commercial break, promo for TNA’ next pay per view, Destination X at the Norfolk Scope Arena, Norfolk, VA on March 9, 2008. Tickets are on sale now for this event.

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.

Tag Team Match

Brother Ray

&

Brother Devon

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.

Vs.

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.

Winner

Brother 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 floor.

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.

Commercial break.

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 gross!

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

Vs.

The Monster Abyss at 6’8”, weighing 350 lbs.

Referee: Andrew Thomas

Winner

Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner

After 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.

Commercial break.

Back from commercial break, promo for Destination X and the road to Destination X with live events.

Replay of Abyss leaving the arena and refusing to enter the ring.

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

Vs.

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.

Winner

Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner

With 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.

Commercial break.                                   

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, including me.

West points out that James Farrier of the Pittsburgh Steelers is in the audience.

Non-Title Tag Team Revenge Match

The Prince of Phenomenal AJ Styles

&

Tomko

TNA World Tag Team Champions

Vs.

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.

&

Kevin Nash

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.

HOLY CRAP!

COMMERCIAL BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH!

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

THAT’S ONE!

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 count.

Replay of the match prior to the commercial.  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

Vs.

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.

Winner

Rellik

And he did it all by himself, unless of course, you count the two masks he was wearing.

Hermie Sadler is backstage at the iMPACT Zone with Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin of the Motor City Machineguns and Homicide and Hernandez of Latin American Exchange, accompanied by Salinas. Nascar’s Jaun Pablo Montoya and Reed Sorenson are with them. The Daytona 500 is this Sunday. They have a conversation but it’s difficult to hear since everyone appears to be talking at once. It seems that Montoya has teamed with LAX while Swanson has teamed with MMG.

The street fight featuring O.D.B. and Awesome Kong is coming up.

(Drives a Dodge, my kinda race car driver!)

Vs.

Homicide

Accompanied to the ring by Hernandez, Salinas & Jaun Pablo Montoya

(ANOTHER Dodge!)

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.

Winner

Homicide representing LAX

With a little help from Hernandez and Montoya

Up next, The War Machine Rhino.

Commercial break.

Back from commercial break, another promo for the Destination X pay per view.

Rhino returned to the TNA ring at Against All Odds going after Cowboy James Storm, delivering a gore, and assisting Eric Young in winning the match.

Tenay gives the audience a film history of Rhino in TNA. Rhino enters the arena to the cheers of the fans. He runs and slides into the ring as the audience is shown the gore he delivered to Cowboy James Storm at 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!

Film of Awesome Kong in TNA wrestling.  She may be a big woman, but she is indeed Awesome. O.D.B. is facing Awesome Kong in a street fight in an Against All Odds rematch.

Crystal is backstage with O.D.B. Crystal asks ODB about the match tonight. ODB says that she has learned that she can take Awesome Kong. Gail Kim interrupts ODB to tell her that she has her back tonight and if Kong’s companion tries to get involved, she will take care of it. ODB tells Gail the more the merrier then tells her to remember ODB is not just another pretty face.

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 break.

COMMERCIAL BREAK!

WHY NOT?

IT’S ONLY IN THE MIDDLE OF A STREET FIGHT!

THAT’S TWO!

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.

Awesome Kong

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.

Commercial break.

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 isn’t tucked.

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.
