TNA Impact Wrestling Results: World Title Change, Major Heel Turn, Kurt Angle, Knockouts, More

Welcome to our Live Impact Viewing Party. We will be providing live ongoing coverage of tonight's show, while you all can chime in with your thoughts throughout the show.

The show opens with Jeff Hardy in the ring. Jeff admits he's worried about Matt. He asks Matt to come out. Matt acquiesces. Jeff says Matt is taking too big a risk tonight by putting his career on the line when he faces Ethan Carter for the belt. Matt says he's determined and won't let people down again. He vows to beat Carter at his own game. Tyrus comes out. He wants to fight Jeff. Jeff takes him up on the challenge.


Jeff Hardy vs. Tyrus

Jeff won by DQ after Tyrus got physical with the ref. Jeff took a nasty spill from the rope at one point, which didn't look intentional. Jeff hit a twist of fate on Tyrus afterwards.

Winner: Jeff Hardy

We're told Feast or Fired is happening on next week's episode. Abyss and Crazzy Steve attack Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards backstage.

Awesome Kong vs. Gail Kim

Kim won with the Eat Defeat to retain the belt. Lots of outside shenanigans, with the Dollhouse going after Kim and the Beautiful people making the save. It ended with Jade getting thrown on Kong. Good match by TNA women's standards.

Winner: Gail Kim

Beer Money is out next.

Roode and Storm want Eric Young and Bram. But Eli Drake and Jessie Godderz are out instead. Jessie vows to break them both, Storm says he's itching for a fight.


Beer Money vs. Eli Drake and Jessie Godderz

Roode and Storm won with the DWI. Beer Money work as well as a team as they always did.


We find out that Jeff re-injured his leg in the match with Tyrus. Matt checks up on him and tells him to listen to the TNA doctors and take a break.

Kurt Angle comes out and thanks the fans. He puts over Galloway and the tremendous match they had on last week's show. Angle wants to know who is next. Lashley appears.

Lashley says he respects Angle like crazy and wants the chance to have another great match like they did last year. Angle accepts the challenge.

We see Lashley talking to a mystery woman backstage.

Mike Bennett with Maria vs. Pepper Parks

Bennett won in a quick squash. Afterwards he cut a promo talking about how he's here to make miracles.

Winner: Mike Bennett with Maria

Ethan Carter cuts a promo outside of an ambulance. He tells Matt he'll be leaving in it.

Ethan Carter vs. Matt Hardy

Matt Hardy won the title after turning heel. Carter turned face at the same time, when Tyrus came out and hit him with a cutter. This had shades of Austin/Bret. The story of the match was that Carer wouldn't quit, even when he got badly cut open, and Matt was determined to win at all costs, even accepting Reby and Tyrus' help. Matt finally got the pin by hitting him with the belt. I guess Matt/Reby/Tyrus is the new top heel stable. Afterwards Matt bragged about ending Ethan's streak and says he won the title for himself, not the TNA fans. He says the fans aren't important. He called himself "Big Money Matt" and hugs Reby and Tyrus. He smacks Carter around with the chair a few times to cement his heel turn.


Winner: Matt Hardy
