Calvin Martin attended the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings last night, which are set to air next Thursday, August 4, 2011. Below are the results and notes from the show:
Show started with Immortal coming to the ring. Mr. Anderson said he respected everyone out there except for Bully Ray. Anderson issued a challenge for a match against Bully Ray and they started fighting when Fortune comes out and clears the ring. It was never made clear when the match between Anderson & Bully Ray would take place, but we’re to assume it will happen at the Hardcore Justice PPV.
Mickie James joins the announce table.
1. Miss Tessmacher w/ Tara d. Madison Rayne. After the match Mickie James was blindesided on the ramp by Angelina Love & Winter.
2. BFGS Match – Devon d. AJ Styles. Pope sat with Devon’s kids. Christopher Daniels sits ringside and inadvertently distracts AJ allowing Devon to get the pin.
Matt Morgan joins the announce table.
3. BFGS Match – Samoa Joe d. The Pope via chokehold submission but the ref reversed his decision when Joe would not release the hold. Pope wins by DQ. Devon sat ringside during the match. When Joe wouldn’t let go of the submission Devon’s kids were urging Devon to help. Devon responded by pushing one of his sons.
4. Street Fight No Rules Match – Hernandez w/ Mexican America d. Robert Roode w/ James Storm via pinfall with his feet on the ropes and distraction help from Mexican America. It was originally supposed to be Storm in the match but he was selling an injury and Roode took his place.
5. Austin Aries d. Alex Shelley.
6. BFGS Match – RVD & Crimson d. Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner & Gunner via RVD pinfall on Steiner.
In ring segment Hardcore Justice contract signing between Kurt Angle & Sting. They talked, respected each other, signed the contract, and left without physical contact. End of Impact.
TNA Xplosion Match – Douglas Williams w/ Brutus Magnus d. Hernadez w/ Mexican America. Magnus and Mexican America were booted from ringside midway through the match. The Mexican America girls come back out to distract but it backfired and Williams got the pinfall.
