Eric attended the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings on Tuesday, set to air on September 22nd, and sent in the following report from the show:
* Sting opened up and called out Hulk Hogan. Hogan says he won’t wrestle Sting at Bound For Glory because he’s not cleared to perform. Sting shows a clip of Hogan roughing him up a few weeks ago. Sting calls it proof that Hogan still has it. Hogan acts like he’s hurt and says he has nothing to prove because he’s all about business now. Eric Bischoff comes out and Sting punches him. Sting says Hogan can’t stop their match from happening.
* Mickie James, Brooke Tessmacher, Traci Brooks and Karen Jarrett are backstage. A match is announced where the winner of Mickie James vs. Tessmacher will face Winter and Velvet Sky in a triple threat for the Knockouts Title at Bound For Glory.
* Mickie James beat Tessmacher to earn the spot at Bound For Glory.
* Austin Aries defended the TNA X Division Title against Jesse Sorensen. Kid Kash ended up interfering and using Jesse’s football that he brought to the ring.
* Kurt Angle calls out Robert Roode to the ring. Daniels vs. Roode is announced by Angle. Roode cuts a great promo about how he will be the new World Champion after Bound For Glory. Angle brings out James Storm who comes face to face with Roode. Storm says he’s out here on his own rules and is out here to talk to Angle. Storm wants a match with Angle tonight
* Daniels comes out and announces he won’t be facing Roode tonight because he has nothing to prove since he beat AJ Styles recently. Styles comes out and isn’t happy with Daniels for his actions of late. AJ proposes another match but Daniels has nothing to prove. AJ knocked the mic out of Daniels’ hand and they came nose to nose. Daniels calls AJ a bitch and they go at it. They brawled all over the place before Kazarian helped break it up.
* Kurt Angle and James Storm went to a no contest when referee Brian Hebner went down from a superkick. Earl Hebner came down but Gunner ran out and pulled him out of the ring. Roode came down to help Storm and had a stare down with Angle over the World Title.
