IN THE RING
The Main Event Mafia (Sting & Kurt Angle & Scott Steiner & Kevin Nash -w/Jenna Morasca- & Booker T -w/Sharmell-) + Samoa Joe: Sting is now the “Godfather” (leader) of the Main Event Mafia after winning that right at TNA Sacrifice. Former leader, Kurt Angle, came out pouting with his two security guards watching his back. Sting said he would be bringing some changes to the family and not everyone’s job is secure. Sting said a few of them have gotten out of focus. Sting said they had a pact to put the group first, and their egos second. Sting addressed Kevin Nash, for letting the issue (jealous) between Jenna and Sharmell to get in the way of what they’re trying to do. Sting said starting tonight the women are banned from the Mafia! Sting addressed Kurt Angle hiring his own private security without consulting anyone. Sting fired Rocco & Sal and told them to get out of the ring! Samoa Joe came out and said he was putting the Mafia on notice. Joe said he’s been ordered to systematically take them out one-by-one until it’s just him and Kurt Angle left. Joe said he’s been ordered to KILL Kurt Angle.

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Jeremy Borash & Mick Foley: Mick Foley said he was putting the “Jeff Jarrett – Founder” door sign up for auction and told Jeremy Borash to put a notice up on Twitter. Foley said he talked to TNA Management and the outcome was not necessarily in his favour. Foley said he had to talk to his lawyers before he told everybody about it. Foley booked two King of the Mountain qualifying matches; Jeff Jarrett vs. Eric Young and A.J. Styles vs. Christopher Daniels..

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & The British Invasion (Brutus Magnus & Doug Williams & Rob Terry): Brutus Magnus objected to Jeremy Borash saying they stole the Feast or Fired briefcases from LAX. Doug Williams issued an open challenge for a Ladder match tonight with his X-Division title shot up for grabs. Borash asked why the British Invasion was hanging out with Sheik Abdul Bashir & Kiyoshi.. they blew off the question.

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Lauren Brooke & Jenna Morasca: Lauren said Sharmell has every right to be upset with her after Jenna threw in the towel for Booker T at Sacrifice. Jenna said that Booker T was going to get his arm broken and she was just trying to help him. Jenna said Sharmell was blind. Sharmell burst into the room and attacked Jenna on the make-up table until Booker T came in and dragged his wife away..

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Lauren Brooke + Dr. Stevie: Lauren started hyping the TNA Knockout title match when she was interrupted by Dr. Stevie. Lauren yelled at Dr. Stevie, who asked “is that any way to talk to a professional?” Dr. Stevie said tonight he was going to give Abyss a live therapy session. Lauren said it wasn’t going to happen, and she was not afraid to jump in there. Dr. Stevie was it was all about mind control, and maybe Lauren should make an appointment with his receptionist.. Lauren told him, “don’t wait for that call.”

LADDER MATCH
Doug Williams (w/Brutus Magnus & Rob Terry) defeated Cody Deaner w/ODB: Homicide was supposed to accept the challenge, but he was called away due to a death in the family. They’re still treating Cody Deaner like an untrained “fan.” Any time Deaner got the advantage on Williams, Magnus & Terry would take the ladder away (until ODB interjected herself). Deaner climbed the ladder and had his hands on the briefcase, but Williams showed up and pushed him over. Deaner took a really crazy bump off the ropes down to the floor and Doug Williams climbed the ladder to retain the Feast or Fired briefcase. Sheik Abdul Bashir & Kiyoshi came down and congratulated the British Invasion..

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & Jeff Jarrett: Jeremy Borash talked to Jeff Jarrett about Eric Young doing everything Jeff asked him to do the past few years. Jarrett said he’s been dealing the maniac Mick Foley lately. Jarrett said he may not have paid attention to Eric Young in the past, but he is tonight. Jarrett said it was time for Eric to grow up.. Jarrett said win, lose, or draw – let’s start over!

IN THE RING
Dr. Stevie & Abyss: Dr. Stevie said he wanted to discuss their addiction for pain, violence, and for the flowing of blood. Dr. Stevie said Abyss choke-slammed him into a pile of thumb tacks at Sacrifice – how dare you! Dr. Stevie said they have to start the whole therapy process from the beginning. Dr. Stevie forced Abyss back into a straight jacket. Dr. Stevie brought out a kendo stick and Lauren Brooke ran down to protect Abyss. Dr. Stevie threatened to whack Lauren, but Abyss begged him not to. Suddenly, Raven (surprise!) jumped over the rail and confronted Dr. Stevie. Raven took the kendo stick and repeatedly whacked Abyss with it! Don West proclaimed “Abyss needed to take it from a familiar face!” and “the healing process has begun!”

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & Raven + Dr. Stevie: Jeremy Borash asked Raven why he was back in TNA. Raven cut one of his great promos, making up a whole bunch of reasons he came back – but maybe I did it for one simple reason.. BECAUSE I CAN!

TNA KNOCKOUT TITLE MATCH
Angelina Love (w/Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne & Cute Kip) defeated Sojourner Bolt to retain the TNA Knockout title: After the match, Angelina asked Cute Kip why he was still following the Beautiful People around. Angelina reminded Cute Kip that she fired him last month! Angelina scolded Cute Kip for not taking care of Kong last week and accused him of stalking so TNA security would kick him out of the building! Angelina said she needed some new Ho’s to beat up and asked if there was anybody who wanted to take her on. Suddenly, Lisa Marie Varon (identified as Victoria) hit the ring and took out Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne before fighting Angelina and nailing her with the Widow’s Peak (which will likely be renamed). Victoria said “consider the challenge accepted NOW!”

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & Eric Young: Eric Young is getting bitter about his lack of opportunity while working for TNA. Young said soon TNA will be forced to take notice of him, and after tonight Jeff Jarrett will never forget his name..

IN THE RING
TNA World champion Mick Foley: Mick Foley talked about a meeting he had with TNA management in Nashville. Foley booked Samoa Joe vs. Kevin Nash in a Lethal Lockdown match next week. Foley said he went through undescribable punishment at Sacrifice to retain the TNA championship. Foley talked about defending the title in the King of the Mountain match coming up at Slammiversary. Foley said he was only human, but his body cannot do it on a regular basis any more. Foley said for the good of the business he must stay champion for many years. Foley said the only way to insure that kind of longevity is to not defend the title very often. Foley said he will put the belt up against staggering odds at Slammiversary, but after that he will only defend the title once a year!

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & A.J. Styles & Christopher Daniels + Samoa Joe: A.J. Styles and Christopher Daniels talked about being the best and having a great match tonight… Samoa Joe showed up and offered and apology to Styles and a handshake. Styles said they would talk to Joe after the match…

KING OF THE MOUNTAIN QUALIFYING MATCH
Jeff Jarrett defeated Eric Young: After the match, Eric Young offered to shake Jeff Jarrett’s hand. Jarrett hesitated but accepted the handshake. Jarrett applauded Young and praised him. Jarrett called Young back into the ring for a HUG and raised his arm – but Young turned heel and clipped Jarrett’s leg!! Young repeatedly smashed Jarrett’s injured hamstring as Don West reminded everyone that Young said Jarrett would never forget his name..

IN THE RING
Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon) + Beer Money Inc. (Robert Roode & James Storm): Team 3-D praised Beer Money Inc. for winning the Team 3-D Invitational Tag Team tournament. Team 3-D presented Beer Money with trophys, a check for $100,000, and number one contendership of the TNA World Tag Team titles.. Robert Roode thanked Team 3-D for the opportunity to prove that Beer Money is the greatest tag team on the planet today. Roode added that if you didn’t believe it, after Slammiversary, you will believe it! Brother Ray got a six-pack of beers and shared it with Roode & Storm (Storm drank it out of his trophy)..

KING OF THE MOUNTAIN QUALIFYING MATCH
A.J. Styles defeated Christopher Daniels: Excellent match. They hugged and A.J. Styles showed respect for Daniels after the match. Styles quickly exited so Daniels could have some spotlight. Suddenly, Shane Douglas jumped the rail (just like Shane Douglas earlier) and knocked Daniels out with a chain wrapped around his fist!
