IN THE RING

Angle blamed Sting & Bobby Lashley for causing all of the damage. Angle said Lashley interfered in the match, and therefor the match was null & void. Angle said he talked to TNA Management and they agreed with him, but they all agreed to let the decision stand as long as Nash got a rematch at Hard Justice. Angle said he would protect his family, the Main Event Mafia, and that forced him to strike a deal. the World Elite group came out and formed an alliance with the Main Event Mafia. Everybody shook hands to seal the deal. Angle said it was an honor to do business with Eric Young. Young said with their groups united they will become the greatest group ever assembled. Young called Kurt Angle the greatest professional wrestler ever. Young said his men are 100% dedicated to the cause, and would do whatever it takes. Young cut a promo on this “nation” not treating them like stars. Young said this nation should feel deep guilt for what they’re about to do to their heros. Young proclaimed “let the clensing begin!” The Mafia and Elite guys started shaking hands and celebrating…
Jeremy Borash & Mick Foley + Sting & Bobby Lashley): Mick Foley said it was the wrestling business an anything and everything can happen. Foley said everybody’s ego eventually gets out of control but nobody is bigger than the business. Foley said tonight would be a night that nobody would ever forget. Sting & Bobby Lashley showed up and said “let’s go, Mick!”
Lauren Brooke & Christopher Daniels + The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin): Christopher Daniels cut a promo on Eric Young for screwing his American fans. Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley showed up and pretended to not know what a camera was because they hadn’t been on TV for a month. Daniels got pissed and told them to stop goofing off, and suggested they go out there and fight this fight! Sabin & Shelley were still sarcastic as they followed Daniels to the ring..
Eric Young (w/World Elite members Sheik Abdul Bashir & Kiyoshi) defeated Christopher Daniels w/Motor City Machine Guns: While the World Elite guys were interfering in the match, the Motor City Machine Guns ignored the action and read video game magazines. After the match, the Sheik & Kiyoshi baseball slid under the bottom ropes and kicked Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin. That certainly got their attention..
Lauren Brooke & Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon) & Beer Money Inc. (Robert Roode & James Storm): Team 3-D & Beer Money Inc. have put their differences aside to go to war with World Elite. Robert Roode talked about him and Eric Young begging Jeff Jarrett for an opportunity years ago. Roode said Jarrett gave them the opportunity and he wasn’t going to stand there and let Young dictate his future. Brother Ray said nobody has the right to be pissed at the World Elite like he and Devon do. Ray talked about the British Invasion stealing the IWGP Tag Team titles from them last week.

POST MATCH INSANITY: The post match insanity continued after the match, with everybody brawling all over the iMPACT Zone. A lot of random pairings. Mike Tenay proclaimed “this is a riot, this is out of control, there is a riot in the iMPACT Zone!” as they threw to commercial. The volume was turned up even more when they came back from commercial, with the fight spreading backstage to the parking lot as well.

Beer Money fought the British Invasion. In the ring, the Guns got rid of the Sheik & Young as Daniels took out Kiyoshi and then hit him with a Best Moonsault Ever.
