Jeremy Borash came out 15 minutes early to warm up the crowd.
A steel cage is already up, so we’ll be starting with a cage match. The match is for Xplosion, not iMPACT!.
Xscape the cage match : Zema Ion vs. Kenny King. Basic match, King won after crotching Ion on the top rope before climbing out. Decent, but not good that this was our shows cage match!
TNA iMPACT! for February 14:
Hogan announces number one contenders tournament for Lockdown. Announces Storm v RVD, Daniels v Magnus, Angle v Joe and Roode vs. Aries. Hogan will pick his contender from those matches. Sting named team captain for TNA vs. Aces and Eights at Lockdown.
Daniels vs. Magnus – not as big a pop as you’d expect at first, but that quickly changed. Kaz was out as manager and got ejected. Magnus and his new music won with the Michinoku Driver and a top rope elbow for the pin.
Roode vs. Aries – they tried to the finger poke of doom on each other but neither budged. It then turned into something of a comedy match. They both did the Eddie Guerrero chair spot, before Chavo and Hernandez came out for a distraction to cause a double count out.
Earl Hebner out for the next match. Some boos but no fans attacking him.
Joe vs. Angle – good TVmatch, although not on the level of their prior matches, but ended in double DQ when Brisco and Bischoff ran in. Joe and Angle ran them off. Do Aces and Eights really need jobber members?
Blossom Twins & Party Marty (Scurll) vs Gail Kim, Tara and Jessie. Match was way longer than it needed to be, with a mild response to the British Boot Camp trio at best. Gail Kim pinned one of the Blossoms seconds after Marty scarily overshot a dive to Jesse on the floor, getting nothing but the guard rail. Post match Gail talked down to Tara and set up a title match for impact next week… Out came Brooke who was booed, who arranged Gail vs. Tara vs. Tessmacher vs. Velvet Sky for the title instead.
Marty got up after the Brooke promo and got a good reaction.
Rob Van Dam vs. James Storm – the Cowboy picked up the win with a super kick after Van Dam missed a Van Terminator.
Hulk comes out to name number one contender. Aces and Eights come out to corner Hogan, but Bully Ray (no music) then Sting come out for the save to end the show.
