For those of you wondering, you didn't miss much on TNA's reaction program. I caught the first 30 minutes and it was really just storyline recap. Great if you missed last week's TNA. Useless otherwise.

Jeff Jarrett is out to start the new program. Tenay reminds us that this is the new start time for TNA. I completely forgot. Highlights of Jarrett's confrontation with Sting from last week follow.

Jarrett says TNA stands for Total Nonstop Action. Because of this, he isn't going to talk about kicking Sting's ass. He's going to do it right now. He walks down the ramp and up into the rafters. He says they aren't playing games tonight.

Cameraman finds Sting and Stinger tells him to be quiet. Jarrett attacks Sting and throws him down some steps. He yells "I want an answer tonight." He continues the beatdown on the stairs. Sting turns the tables and chokes Jarrett. Double J pokes Sting in the eyes and re-gains momentum.

Jarrett continues his assault on the ramp to the ring. He takes Stinger's jacket off and nails him in the face. More face shots follow that. He eventually takes Sting into the ring and joins him. Sting gets to his knees and Jeff wants an answer. Lights go out and they turn back on to see Sting with a bat. He strikes Jarrett in the stomach. The upper leg is Sting's next target. He nails Jarrett one more time but that brings out Jeff Hardy. Sting bails.

We are in the back with Jeremy Borash and all of Team Flair. Flair says the focus is in the room. He says Sting's assault on Jarrett was an example of what's going to happen tonight. Team Hogan and Hulkamania will end at LockDown. Robert Roode says Jeff Hardy will never fly again after their match. Desmond Wolfe chimes in and discusses his beatdown on Abyss last week. Abyss is a dangerous animal, but like all animals, Abyss can be tamed. Wolfe vows to do that tonight. Styles lets us know that Wolfe's match is a tag team bout between Styles, Wolfe, Pope and Abyss. Flair "WHOO'S" us out of the room.

We get sent back to Mike Tenay and Taz. They run down the card for tonight. Jesse Neal and Team 3D are out shortly after. Brother Ray says the originally scheduled tag match is now a New York Street Fight. That's after the break.

Match One
Team 3D and Jesse Neal v. The Band
New York Street Fight

We join the match in progress after the break. Crossbody from Jesse Neal to Sean Waltman. Brother Ray splashes Scott Hall and D-Von attacks Kevin Nash. JESSE NEAL CHANT!

On the ramp, Brother Ray nails Scott Hall in the back with a kendo stick. Neal shoulderblocks Waltman inside the ring. Body slam by Neal to Syxx Pac. They put the trash can lid on Waltman's groin and nail it with a kendo stick. Neal attacks both Waltman and Nash with the kendo stick while Devon chokes Scott Hall with something. Trash can to the head of Nash from Brother Ray. That is followed up by a bunch of shoulderblocks. Waltman finally gets in some offense with a kick to Neal's chest. Brother Ray puts the trash can over Nash's head and hits it with the stick. Waltman is getting choked by Neal in the corner. 2 or 3 shots to Scott Hall's head form a trash can lid are delivered by Brother Devon. On the outside, Ray flies from the steel steps with a trash can to Big Sexy's head. Ray slams Hall to the mat and they set up for the Whatsup headbutt. It connects. Poor Scott Hall. Team 3D and Neal outnumber Hall in the ring 3 to 1 when Brother Ray gets Devon and Neal to grab some tables. They send one inside and Ray sets it up near the corner. Big Boot from Ray to Waltman. He whips Waltman and delivers a big back drop. Ray sets Waltman on the table AND BUBBA THE LOVESPONGE IS OUT. He distracts Ray for a while allowing Syxx Pac to get off the table and on the turnbuckle. He delivers a facebuster through the table for the win.

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.

Solid match from both men. First time I've ever been entertained by Shannon Moore. Douglass Williams was solid on the commentary too.

Douglass Williams says he's going to put an end to their nonsense once and for all after the match. They chase him so he leaves to the back.

Jeremy Borash is with Velvet Sky and discusses her decision on the leather and lace match. She says the match isn't for the Knockouts Title.

She asks JB if he has any more questions and he doesn't say anything.

But not for long because Jay Lethal is out. Machismo says they need to lace the boots up one more time. Hogan jokinhly says they can do so after LockDown if Lethal can find the tights and boots.

After some Taz and Tenay discussion, we get thrown to the back with Angelina Love and Jeremy Borash. He asks her about the match stipulation and she says she would have chosen a wrestling match. She didn't come to TNA to parade herself around the ring like a lady in the night. She came to prove she is the best.

She is stopped by Tara. Borash says they have to co-exist as partner at LockDown. Tara says you keep your friends close and your enemies closer. They trash talk each other before we get sent to a commercial break.

Tara and Love look at each other in the ring, Tenay notes the uneasiness. Love extends her arm out for a handshake but Tara turns her back and leaves.

WINNER: ...Draw?
So that happened, considering she could have had any match, it seems kind of silly but it hypes that LockDown match and furthers their feud. So it isn't all bad.

Tenay says something is going on in the back of the Impact Zone. He throws it to Christy in the parking lot. Abyss is seen down on the floor and Hemme says all they know is that a car drove off quickly. Hmm.

Christy Hemme confirms that Abyss has been hit by a car in the back. He is able to speak and is talking to Hulk Hogan.

Jeremy Borash interviews the tag team champions, Matt Morgan. Morgan lets us know that they are able to defend the title by theirselves. Sadly, TNA management is forcing them to name another person to the team so he finds Amazing Red. As far as Matt Morgan are concerned, Amazing Red is the best pound for pound wrestler in the ring. They tell Amazing Red to do all the flippy stuff that they do and the Matt Morgans will deliver a carbon footprint for the win.

I like the we stuff from Matt Morgan.

Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin make their entrances first. THE BLUEPRINT and Amazing Red are out after. We get a highlight of that nice shot to the head from Morgan to Hernandez from three weeks ago.

Matt Morgan is angry that Red got the cover. He attacks Amazing Red and sets him up against the steel pole. He goes for the big boot but one of the Guns pull Red away.

We're back with Christy Hemme in the parking lot. I don't know much about EMTs and how they work but Abyss is still on the floor, barely getting a neckbrace fitted on him. Apparently the video Tenay referred to during the last match has the whole incident in it's entirety. We'll get to see that after some commercials. I wonder if they followed Abyss' advice and brought in a firetruck.

Hemme lets us know that Abyss is finally on his way to the hospital. We get footage of Abyss getting hit by a car and it looks funny. They enhance the footage and it looks like Desmond Wolfe is in the car. Tenay says the main event is in jeopardy.

Robert Roode is here for his match with Jeff Hardy. Hardy enters the Impact Zone after and Tenay discusses the fact that these men are on opposite sides of the Team Flair-Team Hogan encounter at LockDown.

WINNER: Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy gets nailed in the eye with a James Storm fireball. Or that's the the announcers said. My television froze as the fireball came out. RVD tries to make the save but Beer Money make quick work of him. No replay of the fireball.

During the last match, Tenay let us know that the opening match at LockDown was a bout between James Storm and Rob Van Dam. The winner will receive the early 2-on-1 advantage in the Lethal LockDown match that night.

Jeff Hardy is taken to the back by some medical guys. Apparently the inability to see the fireball wasn't just on my tv, the censors didn't let them show it. Tenay puts on a serious voice and says we can find it on TNA's website.

RECAP of the Kurt Angle-Mr. Anderson feud is shown after Tenay and Taz run down the LockDown card. Of course, you can find all of the LockDown coverage you need here at this fine website.

Jeremy Borash is with D'Angelo Dinero. Pope says his prayers are with Abyss but Pope has a job tonight. He says he has a match between two people BUT IN COMES JAY LETHAL.

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER~! is in the crowd. Taz says he's a cool guy. D'Angelo Dinero makes his entrance after the shot of Dog. BLACK MACHISMO's music plays~! Sadly for us, we see Robert Roode and James Storm beating him up backstage. Lethal tries to fight back but Roode takes control of him. Roode tries to slam Lethal into a wall but Lethal reverses it.
