New TNA Champion Crowned At iMPACT! Tapings

Kurt Angle just defeated Sting to regain the TNA championship at the iMPACT! tapings set to air 10/25. The show will air next week (not this Thursday). Sting had Angle in the Scorpion Deathlock and pointed at Kevin Nash. Nash went to interfere but Sting hit him while he was on the apron. There was a ref bump. Angle nailed Sting with the Olympic Slam and a second referee, Earl Hebner, came out to count the pinfall. Angle acted as if he was happy with Nash, then flipped him off and left. Heber and the original referee Rudy Charles argued. Jim Cornette said he was going to review the decision.


Cornette announced later in the show that Angle was indeed the new champion and at the Genesis PPV it will be Angle and Kevin Nash vs. Sting and a partner of his choice with the winner of the fall winning the TNA title.
