IN THE RING
“TNA Founder” Jeff Jarrett + TNA World champion Mick Foley: Jeff Jarrett said he was going to “react” to Mick Foley’s assault on him last week. Jarrett talked about the fourway main event at Sacrifice, featuring Mick Foley, Sting, and Kurt Angle. Jarrett said there was one slot open, and he has decided to be the fourth man! Jarrett said Foley was not fit to be TNA champion, and he was going to make sure Foley doesn’t walk out with the title. Jarrett said for the next three days, Mick, “you have a nice day!” Mick Foley came out and said he went to the Asylum to make peace, but something made him realize how much he hates Jarrett’s old man. Foley said Jarrett was welcome to take the TNA title away from him, but asked what Jarrett was willing to Sacrifice. Foley suggested Jarrett put his voting shares on the line this Sunday. Jarrett agreed to put up everything that he worked for for the past seven years. Foley said he had match making powers and said he would book his three challengers in matches tonight; Sting vs. Eric Young, Kurt Angle vs. Matt Morgan, and Jeff Jarrett vs. Samoa Joe. Foley said he himself would wrestle a former world champion who has never wrestled in TNA tonight.

IN THE RING
Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon): They showed clips of the British Invasion attacking Team 3-D last week.. Brother Ray said they started the Team 3-D Invitational Tournament because they wanted to give back to the TNA Tag Team division.. Ray said one day they would retire, but when they do retire they wanted to leave behind a great legacy of tag team wrestling in TNA. Ray said they owe their lives to tag team wrestling. Ray said while trying to give back, one tag team has gone and crapped in the hand that has been trying to feed them. Ray said the British Invasion was trying to make a name for themselves against the wrong team. Ray said even Beer Money Inc. has class and dignity these days. Ray said that the British Invasion won’t show them up ever again. Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams, and Rob Terry walked to ringside and said they had the bollocks to come out and stand face-to-face with Team 3-D. They started to fight, but Rob Terry whacked both Ray and Devon with the briefcase! The British Invasion destroyed Team 3-D in the middle of the six sided ring… Brutus Magnus proclaimed “that is how you make a name for yourself!” They set up a table in the ring, but Robert Roode & James Storm ran down and prevented Team 3-D from taking the bump.. Beer Money helped Team 3-D up to their feet and showed them respect. Roode said that Team 3-D taught them to have the balls to fight fair. Roode said after Team 3-D takes care of the Brits at Sacrifice, they are coming from the titles. Team 3-D and Beer Money shook hands…

UP IN THE RAFTERS
Jeremy Borash & Kurt Angle & Sting: Kurt Angle yelled at Sting for not answering his calls all week. Sting asked Angle if he actually watched the shows, because if he watched Lockdown, he would know he got screwed too.

Angelina signed first, and then Raisha Saed signed for Awesome Kong. Cornette said he would like to hear some final words. Angelina said she thinks she and Kong should put their differences behind them and have a wrestling match on Sunday. Angelina said after the match, she would treat Kong to a REAL make-over. Angelina said she would buy Kong some real make-up, cause she’s not digging the clown paint. Angelina said Kong needs a new wardrobe, and also send her to the bestest fat farm in the world. Angelina said if that doesn’t work, there’s always lipo. Angelina said after that she would bring Kong into Mi Pie Sexy. Angelina shook hands with Kong, but Kong refuse to let go. Kong choked Angelina until the referees pulled her off. Senior official Rudy Charles (who looks like a 9th grader) yelled at Kong and got Awesome-bombed through a table! Angelina cried her way up the ramp holding her Knockout title close to her heart…

BACKSTAGE (AKA ON LOCATION)

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Lauren Brooke & A.J. Styles: A.J. Styles said it was three days away and everything was on the line, including his Legend’s title. Styles said it was all about pride, growing up and having nothing, but never saying I QUIT. Styles said when he was going from state to state getting $50 a match, he never quit. Styles said he will NEVER QUIT..

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Lauren Brooke & Matt Morgan: Lauren Brooke said that Matt Morgan has made himself available to the Main Event Mafia, and gone out of his way to prove himself to them. Lauren said Morgan has the ultimate opportunity to prove himself to Kurt Angle tonight. Morgan said he just wants to play for a WINNER and said nobody is more marketable than him.. Morgan said he just hopes Kurt doesn’t take the loss personally – it’s just business!

SACRIFICE TUNE-UP MATCH
Kurt Angle defeated Matt Morgan with a Small Package: They did their best to make Matt Morgan look like a Super Star, but I believe he came up short against the best wrestler in the world. Angle was impressed (in storyline) enough to shake hands with Morgan after the match..

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Lauren Brooke & Jeff Jarrett: Lauren Brooke asked if it was smart for Jeff Jarretto to wrestle tonight with a torn hamstring. Jarrett said it was a war between him and Mick, and if someone blinks and eye it is over. Jarrett said someone other than Mick Foley will walk out of Sacrifice as TNA champion and when that happens it will go back to business as usual.

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Lauren Brooke & Jenna Morasca: Jenna Morasca said they were all set to sign the documents last week to financially back the Main Event Mafia, but there was one small detail that they have yet to work out. Lauren asked if it was the apology from Sharmell, and Jenna said Sharmell was jealous of her from day one. Jenna said Sharmell has until Sunday to apologize OR ELSE. Jenna said if Sharmell refuses there is going to be some serious trouble. Editor’s Note: I’m not buying it.

SACRIFICE TUNE-UP MATCH
Jeff Jarrett defeated Samoa Joe by DQ: Samoa Joe targetted Jeff Jarrett’s torn hamstring so aggressively that the referee (who is Jarrett’s friend) disqualified Joe. Samoa Joe continued the assault until A.J. Styles ran down to talk some sense into him. Styles and Joe started shoving each other and had to be held apart by TNA security. Jarrett writhed in pain on the floor….

NON (TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT) TITLE MATCH
TNA World champion Mick Foley defeated a “former World champion”: Mick Foley introduced his opponet, a former World champion, Rocky Balboa! A couple security guards carried a card-board cutout of ROCKY to the ring and Foley actually wrestled the card-board cutout. Don West was hilarious calling the match like it was legitimate, while Mike Tenay was fed-up and refused to call the action. They even had somebody playing MICKIE. Foley cut a post-match promo saying it was the greatest night of his life and did some Rocky quotes. Jeff Jarrett limped to the ring and said he didn’t want to hear any more of Foley’s crap. Jarrett said he had one thing left to say, and suddenly attacked him! Kurt Angle ran down and gave Jarrett an Angle slam and put him in the Anklelock! Sting entered the ring and acted as the peace-maker, but was smashed from behind with a chair from Foley! Jarrett grabbed Angle and took him out with The Stroke! Foley then knocked Jarrett out with a chairshot to the head! TNA champion Mick Foley was the last man standing!
