IN THE RING
TNA World Heavyweight champion “Executive Shareholder” Mick Foley + “TNA Founder” Jeff Jarrett: Mick Foley said he knew after Lockdown that people would be gunning for the TNA World Heavyweight championship. Foley said he knew he would have to defend the title 1-to-4 times a year. Foley said that Jeff Jarrett has taken away his smile, and told somebody in the back to send Jarrett out to the ring. Jarrett came to the ring and Foley said he respects him. Foley said Jarrett’s actions last week were questionable when he assaulted TNA referee (and senior citizen) Earl Hebner. Foley said he won’t allow Jarrett to run rough-shod over TNA, and said Jarrett was fined and suspended from TNA without pay. Jarrett said Foley’s comedy act is over right now! Foley said if Jarrett wasnted to dance, it was time to pay the band. Foley said that Jarrett crossed the line, and said we could do it the easy way, or the hard way – but either way he is removing Jarrett from TNA. Jarrett said he would do it the hard way, and Foley’s security force (Big Rocco & Sally Boy) attacked him! Foley backed out of the ring and up the ramp while shouting instructions. Jarrett made a comeback and knocked out both guys with chairshots! Foley said when he regains his composure he will single-handedly throw Jarrett out of the iMPACT Zone.
Lauren Brooke & Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon) + Raven: Brother Devon said they have a problem with the British Invasion because they bit the hand that fed them. Devon said if you draw first blood with 3-D, then you’ll be drowning in your own blood.. Raven was shown sitting in the background.. Brother Ray said they beat some respect into Beer Money, and that is why they are the tag team of the future. Ray said they were still the greatest tag team in the world and at Slammiversary they will prove it..
Jeremy Borash & Jeff Jarrett: Jeff Jarrett said there was no excuse for what he did last week and he’s apologized to Earl Hebner over and over. Jarrett said if Mick Foley wants to remove him from the building, then let’s do it his way..
NON (TNA WORLD TAG TEAM) TITLE MATCH
Alex Shelley (w/Chris Sabin) & Jay Lethal (w/Consequences Creed) defeated Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon): Team 3-D are the IWGP World Tag Team champions, while the Machine Guns are the IWGP Junior Tag Team champions… Team 3-D were handling Shelley & Lethal, as well as interference from Sabin & Creed, but couldn’t survive interference from the British Invasion..

Jeremy Borash & Mick Foley w/security force + Jeff Jarrett: Mick Foley confronted Jeff Jarrett and asked him one last time to do the right thing and walk away before somebody gets hurt. Jarrett said he was going to leave now, before he does something he’ll really regret. Jarrett told Foley to reevaluate his position in TNA, because he needs to find out what his real role is..
Jeremy Borash & The Main Event Mafia (Booker T & Scott Steiner): I’m going to stop recapping some of these pointless backstage segments soon.. Booker T was gonna “get” Joe for messing with his family. Steiner said Joe’s blood won’t be enough for them tonight. Steiner begged Joe to bring his “friend” with him..
NATION OF VIOLENCE FIRST BLOOD RULES MATCH
Samoa Joe defeated Scott Steiner: Scott Steiner bashed Joe with the ring bell but could not draw blood. A little bit later, Joe put a trash can over Steiner’s head and brutually bashed him with a lead pipe (totally psycho) and Steiner emerged with blood squirting out of his head!
NATION OF VIOLENCE FIRST BLOOD RULES MATCH
Samoa Joe defeated Booker T w/Sharmell: A few minutes into the match, Joe bashed Booker in the stomach with the lead pipe and Booker began bleeding out of the mouth from “internal injuries.”

NON (LEGENDS) TITLE MATCH
A.J. Styles defeated Shane Douglas by Submission: I never would have thought I’d see Shane Douglas wrestling again. Good for him (even if he is a shell of his former self). — After the match, Shane Douglas assaulted A.J. Styles until Christopher Daniels ran down to make the save! Daniels stomped Douglas until Daniels swung his towel at him. Daniels fell to the mat, and Shane revealed a set of hand-cuffs hidden in the towel. Douglas then cuffed Daniels to the ropes and went after Styles again. Samoa Joe sprinted to the ring and chased Shaen Douglas away from the six sided ring!
Lauren Brooke + Raven + Daffney: Lauren was shown backstage running from somebody, on the cell phone begging Chris (Abyss) to get their quickly. Lauren ran into the bathroom and Raven walked up behind and sat outside the door. Suddenly we could head Lauren getting assaulted (through her microphone) by somebody smashing her with a trash can over and over. Daffney walked out and the camera rushed in to find Lauren on the floor recovering from the attack.
Lauren Brooke vs. Daffney + Raven & Dr. Stevie (Richards): After the commercial, while Raven & Dr. Stevie watched, Daffney viciously assaulted Taylor Wilde in a dark section of the backstage area. Dr. Stevie pulled Daffney off and sarcastically apologized to Taylor.. Raven just sat there giving everybody the silent treatment..
Jeremy Borash & The Beautiful People (Angelina Love & Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne): Angelina Love complained about their usual set going missing, citing that her beautiful butt needs to be accomadated (insert sleazy comment here). Velvet talked about “hos” coming in and trying to take over their turf. Angelina said that TNA was their house, and this “Diva” is walking in their neighborhood.. Madison said she would peel the skin off of Tara’s oily obese stretch-marked body!

Young said he was just tired of being abused and taken advantage of by everybody (the fans, Jarrett, and even Borash). Borash said Young has to stop feeling sorry for himself, so Young turned around and knocked Borash out!
So-Cal Val & Christopher Daniels: So-Cal Val took over for Lauren Brooke. A fired up Christopher Daniels challenged Shane Douglas to a match at Slammiversary with the winner getting Daniels’ spot on the TNA roster – but if Douglas loses he is gone forever!
KING OF THE MOUNTAIN QUALIFYING MATCH
Kurt Angle defeated Sting: They started with a handshake before the match.. but late in the match, Sting had the pinfall and Matt Morgan came down to distract the referee. Sting was distracted, and bumped into Morgan on the apron, allowing Angle to score the 1-2-3 and win the match! Morgan got in the ring and applauded Angle, but Angle realized what happened and was upset with Morgan. Angle scolded Morgan, who shoved Angle down and they had to be held apart as the show went off the air!
