TNA IMPACT! Results (11/4) - Turning Point Hype!
We open with clips from last week when Matt Morgan was offended that Eric Bischoff would make Mr. Anderson wrestle with a concussion. So he took Anderson's place in a chain match with Jeff Jarrett and then got beat up by Fortune. Well, somebody's gotta do it.
"Kung-Fu Bischoff" is your title.
Ric Flair pumps Eric Bischoff up backstage, then our two heroes make their way out to the Impact Zone in lovely Orlando, Florida! Eric is clad in his karate attire, as our hosts Tazz & Mike Tenay remind us of his status as a black belt. A referee is with them, and So Cal Val opens the ropes for Naitch. Eric says they've got some business to take care of tonight. He wants to address Matt Morgan. He & Flair talked to Hulk Hogan, and they all agree that Matt Morgan isn't part of Fortune or Immortal, he is persona non grata. That means he doesn't exist. Bisch tells Morgan to stay away and wishes him well in his future endeavors. Bischoff brings up Mr. Anderson. Flair claims he isn't tough enough to be a wrestler, but Bischoff offers him one last opportunity. Tonight, all Anderson has to do is pin Bischoff 1-2-3 & sign the contract to get a match with Jeff Hardy. They know he's probably at home, but he wants to make one thing clear. If he doesn't get out to the ring, he will never, ever get a shot at Jeff Hardy. He's going to show Anderson a sample of what he's in for. He invites the referee "Stiffler" over. He accuses Stiffler of prematurely taking the handcuffs off of Matt Morgan in the chain match last week. Stiffler denies this claim, but Bischoff smacks him down anyway. Oh, and he's fired too! Flair tells Bischoff it was awesome.
Play the theme song!
Tenay hypes the card, including an intergender 6-person, Abyss vs. Pope, and they'll follow up on the open challenge! Backstage, Fortune wears suits, walks around and laughs. Are they heading to the ring?
Brian Kendrick reads Mick Foley's book to the EV 2.0 fellas. Rob Van Dam walks in and wants to know who's Bischoff's boy. Tommy Dreamer & Stevie Richards try to calm him down, then Fortune walks in behind him. AJ Styles wants them to all kill each other, and volunteers to take on one of them at Turning Point. He goads Rhino some, Rhino tries to attack, but AJ moves and RVD is taken out with a gore into the lockers! More dissention in the ranks of EV 2.0...
We get clips of Mr. Anderson getting beat up by Jeff Hardy.
Mr. Anderson joins Tenay & Tazz via phone. He has a pretty severe concussion, the worst he's had in his life, and he can't tell them what will happen. He had a headache for a few days, and then his short-term memory started going away. It was a pretty scary feeling. He's on his way to the Mayo Clinic to get checked out. He appreciates Matt Morgan for stepping up to the plate, but it's hard to know if he can be trusted or not.
Backstage, Angelina Love asks Velvet Sky to give Sarita the ass beating of a lifetime. Velvet says she will, but wants to prove something to herself and do it on her own. She leaves after a hug, and then Winter appears in the mirror. She says she won't leave Angelina, and she'll never be alone again. Angelina says she doesn't mind being alone, so she leaves the dressing room.
Match 1: Knockouts Action
Sarita vs. Velvet Sky
Last week on Impact, it was Sarita getting the duke over Velvet in a 6-Knockout tag team match, setting up this chance for revenge for Miss Sky. Velvet may be about serious business tonight, but she's still cool with letting the pigeons loose! Whatever that means. Velvet with a go behind, full nelson, Sarita reverses with a go behind, Velvet flips out of a suplex, kick, chop, off the ropes, series of reversals ends with a head scissors by Sky. Armbar by Velvet Sky, Sarita fights out with a yank to the hair. Punch in the corner, they exchange chops, Velvet runs into a boot in the corner. She chin busts Sarita, sitting dropkick. Sarita avoids the DDT, Velvet gets pushed into the corner, then beat down by the Dark Angel. Snap mare, a pinning combination gets two, and Velvet fights back with a chop before being sent back down. She hooks the arms, Velvet slips out of the tiger bomb attempt, whip reversed, Velvet lands a bulldog and a clothesline, then counters a back suplex attempt into a cover for two. Velvet rallies the crowd behind her, but then gets tossed outside. She shows frustration, re-enters the ring, and walks into a kick from Sarita, and then the Tiger Bomb ends it!
