These are the LIVE SPOILERS for the final TNA TV taping before Sacrifice. Former WWE Tough Enough 2 competitor Hawk was in attendance along with Sean Waltman and family. Letâ<80><99>s find out what happened tonight.
Hour one news and notes:
The show was opened by the arrival of the one and only Sting into the Impact Zone. He didnâ<80><99>t even get in the ring as Kurt angle attacked him with a chair. TNA black shirt security hit the ring to break them up. Both were given microphones and they argued about the end of last weekâ<80><99>s match between Sting and NWA World Heavyweight champion â<80><9c>Instant Classicâ<80> Christian Cage who also came out to the Impact Zone or at least his music played. Instead Sting and Angle brawled around the ring again and the black shirts hit the ring since the refereeâ<80><99>s were no match for the two high strung former world champions. Finally the champ hit the Impact Zone to a babyface pop. Cage wanted everyone to get along. He felt being the humanitarian he wanted Sting to team up with Angle to face â<80><9c>the Instant Classicâ<80> and â<80><9c>the Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles. The person who scores the pin in the NO DQ match would get the title shot, but if their team lost both of them lost their shot at Sacrifice. Sting said he already had the title shot and didnâ<80><99>t need the match. I think Angle asked Sting if he was an icon or a pussy before they cut to the backstage area.
Leticia interviewed NWA World Tag Team champions Team 3D (Ray and Devon) about their match tonight with Samoa Joe and Rhino.
(1) The match up of NWA World Tag Team champions Team 3D (Ray and Devon) vs. Samoa Joe and â<80><9c>War Machineâ<80> Rhino ended in a no contest.
Jeremy Borash spoke to NWA World Heavyweight champion â<80><9c>Instant Classicâ<80> Christian Cage and â<80><9c>the Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles, who wasnâ<80><99>t too happy Cage volunteered him for a NO DQ match. Cage tried to kiss Stylesâ<80><99> butt a little saying if they eliminate Sting and Angle Styles would be #1 contender.
Back from commercial Mike Tenay and Don West spoke to the home viewers. Robert Roode (carrying his RRI business plan) and Ms. Brooks (sporting a neck brace) made their way into the Impact Zone with tons of egg on their face after last weekâ<80><99>s announcement that Jeff Jarrett was Eric Youngâ<80><99>s friend. Needless to say Roode was not a happy joy-joy person. He called for Young to come out to the ring so he could be fired in front of everyone in the Impact Zone. But instead of Eric Young, Roode got TNA Managementâ<80><99>s Jim Cornette who told the fans Jeff Jarrett was not in attendance. He said the only people who deserved to be fired were Roode and his â<80><9c>flotation floozy.â<80> Cornette said when Eric Young signed the RRI deal he breached his TNA deal but Roode was guilty of tampering (I feel like I am on an episode of Law and Order) so Cornette wanted the whole thing dropped. Roode said he was firing Young whether Cornette liked it nor not and shoved Cornette down. This brought out Eric Young who cleaned Roodeâ<80><99>s clock for a moment but when he went to get Jeff Jarrettâ<80><99>s guitar Roode was waiting. Too bad for Roode, Young knew what was coming and he fought back. But when Young went to clock Roode and Brooks with the guitar, Roode hit a chop block to Youngâ<80><99>s knees (15 yard penalty in an NFL game.) Roode used the cuffs he stole from â<80><9c>Wildcatâ<80> Chris Harris to lock Young in a corner, where he berated him on the mic before using the guitar on Youngâ<80><99>s head. Cornette recovered enough to talk on the mic and said instead of firing Roode he was going to have to face Jeff Jarrett at Sacrifice.
Tenay and West spoke to the home viewers once more.
(2) In a Lockdown rematch with Street Fight rules, Gail Kim defeated â<80><9c>the Pride of Tennesseeâ<80> Jacqueline Moore (carrying a bullrope).
Tenay and West did another chat with the home viewers. Between commercials they were joined by Jim Cornette for commentary.
(3) In a NO DQ match, Sting and Kurt Angle defeated NWA World Heavyweight champion â<80><9c>Instant Classicâ<80> Christian Cage and â<80><9c>the Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles.
In between shows Jeremy Borash introduced someone from the TV show Heroes (which airs on NBC and mentioned TNA Mobile was now fully active.
Hour two news and notes:
(1) LAXâ<80><99>s â<80><9c>Notorious 187â<80> Homicide defeated Team 3Dâ<80><99>s Devon and â<80><9c>Big Poppa Pumpâ<80> Scott Steiner.
Tenay and West talked on camera to the home viewers. Christy Hemme and the Voodoo Kin Mafia (Kip and BG James) came out the ring but the team formerly called the Bashams hit the ring and attacked the VKM. Hemme introduced them as Basham and Damaja. Lance Hoyt came out and the trio hit the bricks. Tenay and West spoke on camera possibly talking about what went down in the ring.
(2) World X Division champion â<80><9c>the Futureâ<80> Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley defeated Sonjay Dutt and â<80><9c>Black Machismoâ<80> Jay Lethal.
(3) In a NO DQ battle, â<80><9c>the Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles, â<80><9c>Fallen Angelâ<80> Christopher Daniels and â<80><9c>Tennessee Cowboyâ<80> James Storm (w/ â<80><9c>Pride of Tennesseeâ<80> Jacqueline Moore minus two teeth) defeated â<80><9c>Wildcatâ<80> Chris Harris (w/Gail Kim), â<80><9c>War Machineâ<80> Rhino and Samoa Joe
After that fight ended, Sting and Angle fought their way into the Impact Zone with Christian Cage watched on from a safe distance. Finally TNA referees and black shirt security broke them up. Angle said on the house mic come Sacrifice Stingâ<80><99>s ass was his.
