TNA taped next week’s TNA iMPACT! telecast in Chicago, IL. Here are the results:
X Division Champion Kenny King beat Zema Ion and Sonjay Dutt. Mike Tennay stood in the ring to start the new show. He said it’s time for answers and called out AJ Styles. Tenay asked about AJ’s possible drug use. Seriously. Taz interrupted and said Styles needs a new bike and offered him a spot in Aces & 8′s. James Storm came out and said he would knock out Styles the next time he sucker punched him. AJ, who was wearing a hood, would not face him and end up walking away without getting physical.
Matt Morgan defeated Joseph Park. Nothing special.
Hulk Hogan set up a four-way match between Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, and Magnus to determine the No. 1 contender for Bully Ray’s TNA Title.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ frontman Billy Corgan is in the front row… Rich noted that the live crowd is “absolutely exhausted” after three hours…
Austin Aries and Bobby Roode defeated Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez to retain the TNA Tag Titles. A Bad Influence distraction led to the finish. Daniels and Kazarian attacked Roode and Aries afterward.
Taryn Terrell came out and then Gail Kim came out. Finally, Brooke Hogan came out, fired Terrell, but then signed her to a contract. Terrell attacked Gail. Bully Ray came out, fake slapped Brooke to end the segment.
Jeff Hardy defeated Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, and Magnus in a four-way to become No. 1 contender to the TNA Title. A pretty good match, according to Rich. Hardy pinned Joe to win the match. This concluded the taping.
