IN THE RING Mick Foley + Abyss: Mick Foley called out Abyss to confront him about helping him recently when he did not ask for help – and costing him matches and championships along the way. Foley said he didn’t need Abyss’s help when he went flying off of Hell in a Cell (Foley just plugged the WWE PPV this Sunday). Foley said he didn’t need Abyss’s help and he didn’t need Abyss! Abyss said that Mick Foley was his hero, and Foley was the reason he got into the wrestling business. Abyss yelled about Foley repaying him by busting him open bloody last week. Foley said he spent several hours in the emergency room last week getting shards of video tape removed from the palm of his hand. Foley made a peace offering, and pulled out the portait of himself and Jeremy Borash. Abyss was happy that Foley had the portrait fixed, but Foley admitted that it was a reprint, a copy, a cheap knockoff. Foley made the comparison that Abyss was a cheap low-rate Mick Foley wannabe! Foley smashed the frame over Abyss’s head and walked off surrounded by security. Wow, another Foley heel turn? Abyss stood up and jumped out of the ring to go after Foley. Abyss took out Foley’s security team as Foley escaped backstage.

Angle said Young’s men should have known better than to get in his face. Young said if Angle apologizes it will be water under the bridge, but if he doesn’t then they were going to have a problem. Young said the World Elite needs the Main Event Mafia, but not as much as the Mafia needs the World Elite – because they are young and hungry. Booker T got in Young’s face, and Young told Booker that the leaders were talking. Young said he has a match with Morgan tonight, and suggested Angle watch close because he’d show him how to he should be handled. The World Elite left the room and Booker T said he tried to tell Angle not to trust them!
BATTLE OF THE PLAYBOY MODELS Christy Hemme defeated Traci Brooks: Some of you might disagree, but I think Christy Hemme is way hotter than Traci Brooks. Traci’s boobs are way too big for her body type and look way too fake. Her Playboy pics aren’t that great, but if you’re 18+ you can see them at www.playboy.com/traci – but I suggest you Google “Christy Hemme Playboy” and check out her pictures instead! Hemme proved that she is a better wrestler with a victory over Mafia member Brooks! Traci attacked Christy after the match in a fit of anger.
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT: Abyss finally found Mick Foley backstage. Foley yelled “so you want a piece of the original?” and bashed Abyss with the barbed wire baseball bat!

SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW Mike Tenay & TNA World Heavyweight champion A.J. Styles & Sting: A.J. Styles said he has to know if he can beat Sting because he is the BEST. Sting talked about 23 years in the wrestling business and not knowing how many times he has been World champion (he should look at his OWW Profile. Styles said he doesn’t mean to be disrespectful, but the whole “passing the torch” thing can be taken two ways. Styles asked if Sting was honestly passing the torch or did he just not want it any more. Styles asked Sting if he was ready, because if he wasn’t ready maybe Sting shouldn’t wrestle. Sting stood up and said “I love you, man!” and walked off the set..

IN THE RING The Beautiful People (Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne) + Taylor Wilde & Sarita + Lacey Von Erich: The Beautiful People came out not acting like themselves (in other words, not acting like sluts during their entrance). Velvet said that due to contractual issues, Angelina Love was no longer apart of the Beautiful People. Velvet said she and Madison thought it was time to come clean with the TNA fans and the TNA Knockouts. Velvet said the truth was she and Madison have not been proud of their actions over the past year. Velvet said they were nasty, rude, and inconsiderate – adding that their behavior was largely due to Angelina. Madison took the mic and said Angelina turned them into monsters, and made them do things that they didn’t want to do. Madison said they were afraid to go against Angelina’s orders because it wasn’t worth the consequences. Madison said now that Angelina was gone, she and Velvet want to show everyone their true colors. Madison said they wanted to apologize for every heinus act that they committed in the past – and start fresh with a clean slate. Madison invited Taylor Wilde & Sarita out to the ring so they could apologize to them face-to-face and wish them luck with their match at Bound For Glory. TNA Knockout Tag Team champions, Taylor Wilde & Sarita, joined the Beautiful People in the ring. Velvet apologized to Taylor & Sarita and asked for forgiveness so they can have the best possible match at Bound for Glory. Taylor & Sarita reluctantly shook hands with the Beautiful People, but then turned their backs. The Beautiful People tried a sneak attack, but the champions wisely caught them! All four girls started to catfight until a new blonde (Lacey Von Erich) showed up and helped the Beautiful People destroy Taylor & Sarita. Lacey used the Von Erich Claw on Sarita. I’ll save my personal feelings for Lacey for another day.

Lacey delivered a speech and said she looked forward to taking the ugly out of TNA.
SINGLES MATCH Matt Morgan vs. Eric Young ended in a No Contest: All night they showed a fan dressed as Abyss holding a chair that said “Abyss Use My Chair.” Well this fan reached over the rail and bashed Morgan with the chair, before taking off the mask and revealing Kurt Angle!! Scott Steiner & Samoa Joe hit the ring to attack Eric Young, and slow Kevin Nash & Booker T eventually joined them. The World Elite hit the ring and had a huge brawl with the Main Event Mafia! After the commercial, the brawl continued – including Kurt Angle putting the boots to Matt Morgan at ringside.
