TNA iMPACT! spoilers for February 21:
Robbie E vs. Spud. Spud had a phantom face turn and took a lot of punishment. Spud did get the win when Robbie T stopped E from grabbing the list, allowing Spud to roll E up for the pin. E berated T after the match, slapping him, which led to T taking his shirt off as E ran away in fear. Face turn?
Daniels, Kaz, Roode and Aries vs. Hernandez, Chavo, Joseph Park (huge pop) and James Storm. Fun match, story was the heels couldn’t get along, Roode and Aries walked out, leaving Kaz to eat everyone’s finishers, including a second rope splash from Park for a baby face win.
X division title – RVD vs. Kenny King. King attacked Van Dam at the bell. Typical RVD match, with him retaining with the five star frog splash.
Hogan promo… Names the number one contender for Lockdown. Bully Ray?! Ray accepts and sets up main event – Aces and Eights vs. Ray, Sting and Hulk Hogan!
Garett Bischoff vs. Samoa Joe. Think I can see someone getting killed here… Glorified squash until Wes Brisco ran out for DQ. Jobbers and Eights briefly beat up Joe but Angle ran out for the save. For Lockdown they announced Brisco vs. Angle in a cage.
Gail Kim vs. Tara vs. Tessmacher vs. Velvet Sky for the Knockouts title. Tara came out to Brooke’s music in another in a list of production botches. Jesse was thrown out at the start of the match. This was announced on the prior show as an elimination match but there was a load of broken up pins in front of a dead crowd. After 3 hours, people were beyond burned out by this point.
Gail pinned Tara after Velvet hit her sit out pedigree so we’ll get a new champion. It was an elimination so the match continued. Very little reaction – why break up pins if it’s elimination rules?? Tessmacher eliminated after her attempt to roll up Velvet from another sit out pedigree failed, leaving us with Gail vs. Velvet – Velvet Sky wins the title with another sit out pedigree.
Devon, Ken Anderson and DOC vs. Bully Ray, Sting and Hulk Hogan. Hogan’s music played, no Hulk. Twice. Match started without Hulk. Crowd seemed deflated by the swerve as the heels enjoyed theiradvantage. After Bully took a lot of punishment, Sting took the hot tag and cleaned house. Bully was about to do the Wazaap head but on mystery Aces and Eights man but Knox and other Aces and Eights guys came out with a kidnapped Brooke and injured Hulk. Bully ran off to save her as Aces and Eights stole pin on Sting. Post match beat down on Sting as Bully and Brooke and Hulk watched on from the ramp. The locker room emptied out as war erupted to end the show with TNA on top.
