Eric attended the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida on Monday night, sending us the following results from the broadcast that will air this Thursday, December 2, 2011 at 9/8c on Spike TV:
(1) The Pope and Devon opened the show, defeating Mexican America and Ink, Inc. in a triple threat tag team match to become the new TNA Wrestling Tag Team Champions.
* Sting made his way back to the company, coming out to the ring and calling Bobby Roode out. Sting called out Roode on his actions last week, which ultimately brings out both AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy to the ring. Sting, the authority figure in the company, then booked a three-way-dance match featuring Styles, Roode and Hardy in the main event later tonight.
* In an another in-ring segment, Austin Aries came out to the ring talking about the changing X Division, suggesting that he needs new competition. This causes Kid Kash to come out to the ring and challenge him for the title. Aries accepts, shakes hands with Kash, and the two begin to fight.
(2) In a street fight match, Mickie James defeat ODB.
(3) In a TV Title match, Robbie E. retained the championship against Rob Van Dam. During the bout, both Eric Young and Daniels interfered. Daniels hit RVD with the Angel’s Wings finisher, causing Robbie receive the pin.
* Backstage, all the Knockouts were shown washing a car in bikinis. The TNA Knockouts Champion, Gail Kim, then showed up and sprayed all of her colleagues with water.
(4) In the main event, Bobby Roode defeated AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy in a three-way-dance main event. Roode won with a pin over Hardy after Jeff Jarrett gave Roode the victory. Sting then came out to the stage and announced that Hardy would be facing Jarrett at the Final Resolution pay-per-view in a Steel Cage Match. The only way to win the match will be via escaping. The match also features a stipulation where if Jarrett wins, Hardy will leave TNA, and if Hardy wins, he’ll get a TNA Title shot. Karen Jarrett then comes out to the ring, not happy with the stipulations. Sting tells her she banned from the ring at the PPV.
