Immortal opens the show with Jeff Hardy and Hulk Hogan, the latter of whom thanks Ric Flair for watching things while he was away. Hardy gets a new belt from Hogan, as they throw the old ones in the trash. The Pope , Samoa Joe, RVD, and Matt Morgan all show up to challenge Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett, and, the last two, Jeff Hardy, respectively.
Sounds like the start to an old Nitro, with the NWO being challenged by the various faces.
Robbie E and Cookie defeated Jay Lethal and Taylor Wilde.
Shouldn’t Lethal be getting the advantage for a re-match if the program is to continue?
Kaz defeated RVD after Rhino turned on him, then laid out Tommy Dreamer.
Well, that’s an anti-climax. If you want another Rhino push, speak up, or I’m going to assume TNA is just a bit insane.
Eric Bischoff yells at the Turning Point main event referee, but Morgan says it’s okay and mistakes happen.
Because, you see, he’s a thoughtful giant.
Team 3-D cut a farewell speech only for Bubba to turn on D-Vonn.
Well, at least this time we’re doing it without Rhino and Ink, Inc.
AJ Styles defeated Stevie Richards. Stevie was really hurt and helped to the back with a neckbrace.
When Stevie was really good before all the injuries, this would have been amazing.
Samoa Joe defeated Security in a handicap match. Jeff Jarrett attacked, but Kurt Angle saved.
Damn does Angle hate time off. This is shades of the Angle/Benoit tandem from 2002 Smackdown.
Pope put Bischoff in a casket and brought him to the ring. Abyss saved and rammed him into a wall.
Because not only the WWE can have fun with caskets!
Matt Morgan defeated Doug Williams and Beer Money in a handicap match when Beer Money took care of Ric Flair, who was hit by Morgan. Jeff Hardy hit a low blow post-match.
Williams and Morgan vs. Beer Money coming soon? Didn’t Rey Mundo call that?
