VIDEO PACKAGE: Highlights from Hardcore Justice

Austin Aries + Jeff Hardy + Bully-Ray + Aces & Eights: Aries said that Bobby Roode spent the last month calling him a fluke, but Aries proved that he is no fluke by beating Roode for the second straight time. he’s the face of TNA now and nobody’s going to tell him what to think, say, or do because he’s running the show, and as long as he’s running the show, it won’t be held hostage. He says the BFG Series is close to an end, but no matter who wins or what Aces & Eights do, he’s walking in and out of Bound For Glory with the World Title. Jeff Hardy’s music hits, and he comes out. Aries said Hardy must have something important to say, he said that he’s been chasing the title for the last year and wants to congratulate Aries on how great he’s doing. Hardy says he’s going to win the BFG Series and then he and Aries are going to tear it up, but Aces & Eights cost him 20 points this past weekend and he wants to call them out now.Bully Ray came out and gets in Hardy’s face to tell him how stupid he is because James Storm is behind Aces & Eights. A&E said they were coming for Bubba at Hardcore Justice, but they didn’t touch him because Storm superkicked him right in the jaw. Hardy says Bubba has a point, and Bubba continues by saying that Hardy had James Storm in trouble later and he was lucky enough to get the 20 points by putting Hardy through a table. Lucky or not, he’s going to Bound For Glory and will become the new champion. Aries stops Bully-Ray long enough to remind him that he tapped out to Aries, and he has a lot of aspirations and ambitions and maybe that means he’s behind Aces & Eights. Bubba tells Aries to get the fact that Storm is behind Aces & Eights through his skull, and Aries says that he doesn’t care who wins the series because nobody has managed to beat him yet. Aces & Eights pop up on the screen to say that they’re going to make their presence felt in a big way tonight.

VIDEO PACKAGE: Bound For Glory Series

Samoa Joe defeated Magnus: After the match Joe extended his hand to Magnus, but Magnus is in shock and doesn’t shake his hand so Joe just pats him on the back and walks off. Magnus finally rolls out of the ring and gets a chair and swings it at Joe. Joe saw it coming and got his arm up, but the arm is hurt as Magnus hightails it.

Madison Rayne: She is saying that she hasn’t been the Knockouts Champion in almost a year and a half, with no help at all, because she’s the greatest Knockouts Champion ever. A stagehand pops in to tell her that Brooke Hogan wants to see her in the ring.

Brooke Hogan + Madison Rayne + Earl Hebner + Aces & Eights + Bully-Ray & Kurt Angle & Austin Aries & Jeff Hardy & James Storm: She said that Brooke Hogan made a special request to see her because she obviously knows what an important occasion it is because the queen has regained her throne. She hopes Brooke brings cake, but behind every great woman is a great referee, and she wouldn’t be where she is now without the man who was standing behind her every step of the way, and she asks Earl to come down to the ring and join her. She’s known Earl her whole life and asks if there’s been any kind of shady stuff going on, and Earl says that there hasn’t, but she’s going to make sure nothing shady happens because Earl isn’t refereeing any more knockouts matches. She is giving Brooke Tessmacher a rematch tonight, and there’s going to be a special referee who will be revealed later. Madison says this is just like a Hogan and challenges her to get into the ring, but when Brooke obliges, Madison heads for the hills. Suddenly, two of Aces & Eights run in and they prepare to take Brooke outbut Austin Aries, Bully Ray, Jeff Hardy, and Kurt Angle run in

Everyone + Sting: We come back and all the TNA wrestlers are still in the ring, and now Sting has joined them to say that he promised Hulk Hogan that Brooke would be protected, and they will be. If Aces & Eights want to run like a pack, they have a pack right now with Angle, Hardy, Aries, and himself with the list growing by the hour. Everyone has called them out, so he wants to make it nice and easy: next week at Open Fight Night, he wants ACes & Eights to meet them right at 8pm so they can have it out.

Christopher Daniels & Kazarian + A.J. Styles: They are admiring the issue of Amazing Spider Man that they’re on the back cover of. Kazarian makes more jokes about AJ and Claire, but AJ Styles comes in and says he’s tired of this, so since they’re convinced that AJ is the baby, he’ll accept that he’s the father if Daniels wins tonight, but if AJ wins, then he wants a paternity test.

A.J. Styles defeated Christopher Daniels ( w/ Kazarian):

Sting: Sting is backstage listening to Hogan on the phone saying that he’s going to be there next week when Sting has it out with Aces & Eights, and he’s going to have Sting’s back.

Jeff Hardy & James Storm: Jeff Hardy comes up behind James Storm and says that he doesn’t care what people are saying, but he does care that Aces & Eights cost him 20 points and helped Storm twice. Storm says he’s sick of being accused by everyone else and is surprised that Hardy would fall in with that, then says he’ll be at ringside for Hardy’s match tonight to make sure that Aces & Eights don’t get involved.

Bobby Roode: Bobby Roode comes out to the ring to address the fans and say that he had an opportunity to come out here and right a wrong and prove to the world that what he said about Aries getting a fluke victory was true. He did prove that because he defeated Austin Aries right in the middle of the ring when the referee counted three and raised his hand in victory. But then one thing led to another, the match he already won was restarted, and now he’s standing there emptyhanded. The World Title meant everything of him because he’s what people think of when they think World Heavyweight Champion, but he looked in the mirror and realized that there’s only one person to blame…and that’s Austin Aries. And Sting. And the referees. And all the TNA fans. He comes out and gives the fans everything he has, but they treat him with disrespect and call him a loser and say he sucks.

Brooke Hogan comes out to introduce the referee for the next match…Taryn Terrell! Tiffany from WWECW, for those who don’t know.

Brooke Tessmacher defeated Madison Rayne to win the Knockouts Title: Taryn Terrell aka WWE’s Tiffany was the special guest refereeKnockouts Title Match:

Aces & Eights: This is the invitation they’ve been waiting for and that Sting had better watch what he asks for since they’re showing up in full force. One of the A&E guys adds that they do have a little unfinished business to take care of tonight.

Jeff Hardy defeated Bully-Ray: Bubba lays Hardy out with a clothesline and grabs his chain, but stops and turns to Storm to again accuse him of being behind Aces & Eights. Storm gets in the ring and goes face to face with Bubba, Bubba shoves Storm and Storm tries to retaliate with the Last Call, but Bubba ducks out of the way and Storm accidentally nails Hardy. Aces & Eights comes back into the ring as Storm checks on Hardy and applaud him, then they lay him out and put the boots to him as we go off the air.
