Abyss and his board with nails, now with added meat stuck in, came out and cut a promo that he was coming after Rob Van Dam.
Abyss would be far more intimidating if he just didn’t talk.
Taylor Wilde defeats Sarita in a hardcore brawl.
That’s fairly random, but sure, why not? Neither is bad.
Brian Kendrick defeats Doug Williams with a cobra clutch, but is chokeslammed by Kevin Nash post-match.
Good to see Nash still keeps those vanilla midgets in place.
Nash demands more TV time from Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff, but ends up confronted by Jeff Jarrett who threatens to suspend him.
Samoa Joe defeats Rob Terry and Desmond Wolfe in a three way match. Chelsea is upset post-match with Wolfe, who tapped to Joe.
They couldn’t throw the ‘net a bone and do Wolfe vs. Joe?
Beer Money defeat the Motor City Machine Guns in the first of a best of five series in a ladder match.
I guess this is throwing the ‘net enough of a bone, then. Great idea.
Jay Lethal vs. Jeff Hardy is announced for Hard Justice.
I don’t care if there’s a reason for it, this should be a great match and continue Lethal’s elevation.
The Pope Dinero defeats Matt Morgan. Morgan attacks post-match, but Ken Anderson saves. Anderson wants a handshake, but Dinero declines.
Didn’t they just do this exact angle with Anderson with Abyss and Jeff Hardy?
The Beautiful People argue because Madison Rayne didn’t tell Velvett Sky or Lacey Von Erich about the Motorcycle Girl (Tara). Angelina Love interrupts, but she’s beaten down by Madison and Motorcycle Girl.
They aren’t going to make this make sense at this point. Remember when the Knockouts were well booked?.
Jeff Hardy defeats Jay Lethal in a good match.
So much for this being part of the PPV?
Ric Flair makes AJ Styles and Kazarian the first members of Fortune. Desmond Wolfe protests, but Abyss comes out so the heels all leave. He calls out RVD and announces an Extreme Match with him at Hard Justice with his weapon hanging from the ceiling. They brawl until the ECW guys, including returning Mick Foley, Al Snow and more save. These ECW Originals end up brawling with TNA stars until Dixie Carter comes out to keep the peace, but fails as ECW takes over in an angle said to be wilder than the original Nexus invasion of Raw. Mick Foley is in charge of ECW and the brawl goes well after the show is off the air, and said to be produced by Tommy Dreamer.
Did TNA just allow themselves to be heels in their own company?
