TNA IMPACT! Results (4/12) - Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, More!
By Ryan Clark | April 12, 2010 |
WINNER: THE BAND
Fun "squash" match that kept the storyline going on. Good enough for me.
• The Band continue their assault on Brother Ray until ERIC YOUNG makes the save with a hockey stick. He gets on a microphone and says he has a bone to pick with Big Sexy. He suggests a match between Nash and Young at LockDown. Nash nods his head making the match official, I guess.
• Christy Hemme catches up with Hulk Hogan IN THE BACK. He says Team Hogan could be doing better but he has four main event guys who are serious about LockDown. We will see what Team Hogan is about at LockDown.
Hogan sees Eric Bischoff on the phone and sits down, asking Hemme to leave. He asks Bischoff what he and Flair were talking about. They will continue the conversation in Hulk's office.
• Shannon Moore is on the screen which means something. Announcers let us know a match is about to go on and Frankie Kazarian is his opponent. Tenay asks us for the first time tonight to call and text our friends and let them know Impact is on.
