TNA IMPACT! Recap (10/14) - Immortal Is Born, Hogan-Flair Unite, Angle Retires? JWoWW
Eric Bischoff Backstage with Dixie's Attorney
Short and sweet to have Eric basically explain to Dixie's attorney Guy Blade without addressing it publicly why Dixie can't fire him or Hogan following them revealing to be the "they" due to he and Hogan control the majority share of TNA.
Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff in-ring promo
Hogan came out miming the guitar on his crutches which was funny, there were boo's around the iMPACT! Zone but big "Hogan" chants. Eric introduced us to him mentor, his brother and the man who made this industry famous - Hulk Hogan. Finally, Hogan sucks chants. It's working so far. Hogan asked where's "the no good Dixie Carter" and said they took what is rightfully theirs. He said there was a method to their madness and that Dixie conned Hogan to come down to TNA. Way to put over the company by basically saying he didn't want to come of his own accord.
Bischoff got on the mic and said nobody saw it coming and proceeded to walk us through the master plan. Saying it started with Abyss, when people couldn't understand why Abyss would turn on Hogan after the Hulkster took Abyss under his ring he then introduced Abyss as a member of Team Hogan. Abyss came out carrying his beloved Janice. Abyss told Hogan and Bischoff and said he was their soldier and he will knock down anyone who stands their way. Hogan told him it was their destiny and he would live forever as he was immortal. Bischoff introduced Jeff Jarrett claiming to have utter respect for this man. Jarrett walked to the ring as Mike Tenay said seeing Jarrett join this group was the most disappointed part of the entire thing. Jarrett blamed Dixie for stealing TNA from him using her Daddy's money and now that he's with Hogan everybody has to play by their rules.
He was cut off by Ric Flair's music who came out with the other members of Fortune. Flair told Hogan that in his absence that TNA was run by Fortune and huge Fortune chants broke out in the iMPACT! Zone. He told Hogan he hated his guts and wanted him one on one, Flair approached Hogan and as it looked like they would brawl, the two hugged and said that both joined with a common goal of taking out Dixie Carter.
Bischoff got on the mic and introduced the new TNA Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy. Hardy came out without face paint and without his dancing, complete opposite of his usual self. He told the world that he didn't sell out he sold in and he blames the fans for his pain and anger after destroying his body for them and that the New Regime are immortal and will live forever. At this point Kevin Nash & Sting were shown backstage watching the show, Hogan & Bischoff persuaded them to come to the ring and "join the party".
We go to break and when we come back Sting & Nash are out and Bischoff says they need both of them on the team. Nash says its the perfect fit for him as his whole career had been about money and he didn't care about anybody, however as he got older he got wiser, he claims that everybody in the back who he would of taken every dollar from in the past they are now his friends and he'll pass and that if they want to run the company into the ground they can do it without him. Sting took over and said he came here 5 years ago because he loves TNA and said he's not gonna let history repeat itself and that his answer was no. Both Sting and Nash left the ring as Bischoff called them nuts and said its always going to be about money and power and if they realize that they know where to find them.
