TNA Impact (Airing Thursday on Spike TV):* Impact starts with the Immortals out first. They debut new music with a new entrance video.* Eric Bischoff goes over what happened at Turning Point. He congratulates Abyss for his win. He says Abyss put on a mixed martial arts clinic at the pay-per-view. Ric Flair says this group dominated last night. AJ Styles says it's all about the name and the name is Fortune. He mocks Sabu and says he's fired, courtesy of Fortune. He says he's sending another one home tonight and he's crippling Stevie Richards. Bischoff says the biggest moment was the very first title defense for their champion, Jeff Hardy. Hardy's new music hits and he comes out.* Hardy says it was just another party for him. He destroyed the hopes and dreams of Matt Morgan. The crowd chants "overrated" at him. He says he's not overrated, he's the chosen one. Bischoff says tonight is going to get more excited. Here is the one, the only, the immortal Hulk Hogan. Hogan comes out and joins Immortal in the ring. He asks if you know what it's like to be surrounded by family. When he made the deal to take over TNA, the one thing he made sure was to have Bischoff with him. He congratulates Flair for doing a great job and stepping it up. Hogan has a surprise for Hardy. A title belt is lowered from the ceiling and pyro goes off. There is now a new TNA World Heavyweight title belt. It's purple and looks like the Divas title belt. Hogan throws the old title in the trash. Hogan says the only thing anyone can do now is drop down to their knees and pray. The Pope's music hits and he appears in the crowd. Pope is telling Eric that he has a casket for Abyss but tonight he's going to take Eric's old a--, put it in the casket, push it up the ramp and push him off to watch him crash and burn. * Samoa Joe's music hits and he appears from another part of the crowd. Joe calls out Jeff Jarrett and the security guys for what they did. Joe says if Jarrett is such a tough shoot fighter why doesn't he come shoot on him. RVD's music hits and he shows by the commentary table. He calls them all shallow and calls out Hardy for having a title he never lost. He also says Hardy has to face the fact he's going to have to face him one day. As a matter of fact, he's going to make it happen tonight and leave as champ. Morgan's music hits and he says no disrespect to RVD but he's getting the shot first. He says he exposed Hardy at the PPV and will do it again. Hogan says he doesn't know what he's getting into. Morgan says he used to worship the ground Hogan walked on but now he needs to show up. Hogan says he'll go to the back with Flair and give him a fight. He might regret what he gets though.* Jay Lethal & Taylor Wilde vs. Robbie E & Cookie. At one point things broke down and Taylor was chasing Cookie around the ring. This distracted Lethal and allowed Robbie E to hit his finisher and win the match.* Team 3D is out for their retirement speech. Brother Ray says no matter what that was one hell of a tag team match at Turning Point. Devon says whether you loved us or hated us the fans were always in their corner. They say thank you for that. So now they've done everything they could and it's time to hang it up. Ray is going to start a rock and roll band. Ray says Devon has 11 kids to go home to. So for the last time, Devon does his oh my brother, testify. Their music hits, Team 3D embrace and then Ray knocks Devon out. Devon tries to get up but Ray kicks him back down. Ray slowly walks to the back amid a chorus of boos.* Backstage Bischoff is berating Earl Hebner in front of the other referees. He says Hebner screwed up at the PPV again. A new referee interrupts him and says he's sorry but it was his fault. Bischoff says why is he interrupting him? Matt Morgan comes in and says he shouldn't be mad at the referees when he should be mad at him. Morgan says give him a handicap match against Fortune tonight and he can let them punish him.* Handicap match, Fortune's security of Gunner & Murphy vs. Samoa Joe. Winner via Muscle Buster in a short squash, Samoa Joe. After the match Joe chokes out the guy he didn't pin. During this Jeff Jarrett runs out and hits Joe with a night stick. He and the security guys beat on Joe. Jarrett locks in an ankle lock and Kurt Angle runs out and beats up the security guys. Jarrett makes a run for it before Angle can get to him.* In the bathroom, Eric Bischoff is talking to Abyss who is in a stall pooping. Bischoff comments on the smell. The Pope comes out of another stall and knocks out Bischoff. Abyss then comes out and Pope knocks him out too.* Kazarian vs. Rob Van Dam. Earl Hebner got knocked out during the match. Ric Flair was coming out with a chair to interfere but Rhino ran down and took the chair. He got in the ring to help RVD but he instead gored RVD and allowed Kazarian to get the win. Tommy Dreamer ran out and yelled at Rhino as water came streaming out of his mouth. He went to check on RVD and Rhino hit him with a chair and left.* Backstage, Pope is yelling at Bischoff and asking him if he wants to be the Pope? Bischoff is asking for him to stop. Pope keeps telling him to shut-up. Pope starts putting his jewelery, shades and doo-rag on him and then makes Bischoff rap for him. Eric raps a little and then Pope drags him away and says he has a better idea.* Another handicap match was announced for later of Matt Morgan vs. Fortune.* For the TNA TV Title, AJ Styles vs. Stevie Richards. Winner via botched Styles Clash, AJ Styles. It turned into a sort of short powerbomb. Security and a trainer are out to check on Richards. Richards might be really hurt. They put a neck brace on Richards and helped him to the back.* Backstage, Pope knocks Bischoff out and puts him in the casket then rolls him away.* Pope wheels the casket to the ring but Abyss runs down and attacks Pope. Pope gets the upper hand but Bischoff gets out of the casket and low blows Pope. Abyss pounds on Pope for a while then puts him in the casket. Abyss rolls the casket into the stage where it breaks through.* Beer Money & Douglas Williams w/Ric Flair vs. Matt Morgan. Eric Bischoff joins commentary during the match. Winner via Carbon Footprint to Douglas Williams, Matt Morgan. Flair and Beer Money ditched Williams because they were tired of dealing with Morgan. Afterwards, another video of Jeff Hardy comes on the screen. As Morgan is watching it, Hardy runs in from behind and Kicks Morgan square in the nuts. He hits a Twist of Fate and a Swanton Bomb.* Jay Lethal & Taylor Wilde vs. Robbie E & Cookie. They called it a rematch. I call it a re-tape. This time around, Cookie's boot came off before she ran around the ring with Taylor in chase. Robbie used the boot to knock Lethal out and get the pin. I'm told the match was even worse the second time.
