Last night on TNA Wrestling iMPACT!, TNA’s much-hyped “they” group was revealed to be Fortune members AJ Styles, Kazarian and Beer Money, who turned on Immortal and Eric Bischoff. As previously reported, TNA had planned to feature Kevin Nash and Booker T’s in the group, but their returns to WWE at the Royal Rumble forced them to rewrite the entire storyline.
After the Against All Odds pay-per-view, the main focus of the company will be to rpomote the March 3rd episode of iMPACT. Announced for that show is Karen and Jeff Jarrett renewing their wedding vows and the return of Hulk Hogan. Hogan was supposed to return on last night’s show but was not at this past week’s iMPACT tapings. As for Hogan not appearing, they said that a “legal ruling” from a judge in Texas in the Hogan-Dixie Carter feud was preventing him from attending iMPACT. According to my sources, and as I mentioned on the debut of WrestleHeat.com radio last night after iMPACT!, Hogan was indeed scheduled to appear on the show, but didn’t appear, likely to the plans of the Main Event Mafia (the original “they”) falling through.
Jeremy Buck won a match on last night’s iMPACT to advance to an X Division #1 contender’s match at Against All Odds. The winner of Robbie E. vs. Brian Kendrick vs. Suicide on next week’s iMPACT will go to the pay-per-view to face Max Buck and Jeremy Buck in a three-way to crown a new #1 contender.
