“Monster on the Loose“

Saturday 26/06/2010 @ 9pm on Bravo. Originally aired Thursday 24/06/2010 on SPIKE!

Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz

Things kick off with a recap of the three way from last week, with Abyss letting out his inner monster again and injuring Jeff Hardy.

Here comes the Hulkster. Hogan says we’re full of it. With that type of energy, he’s felt it before. When a company like TNA gets so much horse power, you can start to hear it. Because of the count out in last weeks main event, he’s decided, since he can, to make it a Four Way at Victory Road. It’s going to be Mr. Anderson, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson and the champ, RVD. Victory Road is going to put TNA on the map. RVD has a target on his… and here comes The Monster (with his old ring music, thank god, i hate that american made garbage)

Hulk says it’s good to see him. He was just getting ready to talk about his blood brother Abyss, and then he comes out here. The first person that he went to in this company, the shining star, the guy he believed in and handed his career over to, Abyss. He asks Abyss what happened last week. Abyss says we don’t realize the seriousness of what’s going on. What he did last week, and what he will continue to do, he is doing for one reason. And that’s because they told him to. They were the ones that told him to break Jeff Hardy into two. They were the ones that told him to destroy anything that gets in his path. They’re coming, and they’re going to be here sooner than we think. When they get here, there’s nothing that anyone, including Hulk, are going to be able to do. Hulk tells Abyss to cut the crap. Hulk told Abyss he needed help and Abyss gave him his word. Abyss interrupts, saying that they told him they don’t need him anymore. Hulk asks who they are. Abyss says we’re going to find soon enough. They told him they don’t need him of the stupid coat. Yay. Hulk tells Abyss to calm down, because there is no they, just Hulk, Abyss and the fans. Abyss tells Hulk there’s not a damn thing we’re going to be able to do about it. When they get here, they’re taking TNA over. And by the way, they told Hogan they didn’t need the garbage ring anymore. Abyss chokes Hogan in the corner. He takes the ring and shoves it in Hogan’s mouth. His hands are barely touching his neck. He then takes his bot and shoves it in his chest. Abyss now goes under the ring and he’s got the bag. It’s the glass. YOU!!! Here comes the champ RVD to save the day!

He starts taking it to The Monster. He ducks a right and hits the springboard back kick. Abyss catches Rob and powerbombs him. Abyss goes back after Hulk, but here comes Anderson with a chair. He nails Abyss in the back. And again. And again. Abyss no sells it, so Anderson bails out along with RVD and Hogan. Abyss’s music plays as they walk away. Abyss calls for the cameraman and says “They’re Coming” repeatedly as we head to commercial.

We’re back, and we get a recap of what happened during the commercial break.

Hogan and Bischoff are in the back. Hogan says he gave everything to Abyss. He doesn’t understand. Bischoff asks what got to him, money, ego? He didn’t see it in Abyss’s eyes. He says he couldn’t read Abyss.

Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky are in the back. Velvet’s not really paying attention to what Madison’s saying. Madison tells her to snap out of it, or it’s going to be her carried out on that stretcher tonight.

Match 1 : Angelina Love vs TNA Knockout’s Tag Team Champion Velvet Sky

  • We get a recap of what happened to Lacey last week.

Tenay lets us know that word has come from TNA Management that Mr. Anderson vs Abyss in a Falls Count Anywhere match is the main event for tonight.

Nash and Young are in the back. Nash says he has to distance himself from Scott. He doesn’t have a choice. He’s dealt with him for ten years. Nash says he’s doing Young a favor.

And here comes Matt Morgan. We get a recap of Hernandez taking out the ref, and then Morgan screwing over Hernandez last week. Morgan says he told us so. He told all of us so. He told you, he told you, he told you, he told you, and… well she wasn’t there, but he would have told her too. He told us he was walking out of Slammiversary victorious. He doesn’t sweat Hernandez. He’s calling him out right now. (Hernandez is in Mexico right now) Morgan’s sick of being sneak attacked and jumped from behind. He tells him to come out right now. Morgan’s been let down. It proves his point though, Hernandez sweats Morgan. When TNA Management asked him if he wanted to face Hernandez if he wanted to face him in a Cage match at Victory Road, he was more than happy to. When he beats Morgan, he’s going to say it all over again, that he told us so. Morgan poses. HOMICIDE!! He beats up Hernandez, sending him to the outside. Morgan comes back and sets up Homicide on the ring post. CARBON FOOTPRINT!! He says this is going to look like a wet dream compared to what’s he’s going to do to him (Hernandez). Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

AJ and Flair are in the back. AJ asks if Flair saw the package. Flair tells him to shut up about the damn package and concentrate on the plan, AJ tells flair to be quiet as “he’s” at the go position. They walk off. Their obviously about to jump someone, Kazarian is on his way out to fight Lethal, could they be going after lethal?

Video package hypes up BFG, saying it only happens once a century, on 10/10/10. It’s happening in Daytona Beach, Florida. Interestingly enough thats the same arena that Hogan turned heel and formed the nWo.

Anderson shows the bruises he has, because of Abyss. Tonight, Falls Count Anywhere, if Abyss wants to use weapons, he’ll be ready, and he’ll throw it right back into his face.

We get a video hyping up Douglas Williams.

Williams is in the ring, saying Kendrick put him in a submission he couldn’t get out of. The world he inhabits is one with a code of conduct. One never betrays their professionalism. He needs to reeducate wrestlers in professionalism and sportsmanship. He calls Kendrick out. Here he comes.

Kendrick grabs a mic. He says he talked to the people in charge. At Victory Road, his destiny will be up for grabs as there are stipulations that come with this. There’s something for Williams and something for him. It’s going to be an Ultimate X match. As a treat to Kendrick, the match can also end by submission. What? He says he has to end Williams’ consciousness. Williams asks if Kendrick is insulting his intelligence. He’s more than happy to get his revenge at Victory Road. So why don’t they both just walk away now? Williams puts the mic down and tells Kendrick to leave. Williams goes for a cheap shot but Kendrick locks in the cobra clutch with the body scissors. He finally lets go.

Abyss is in the back. He says one day very soon, everyone is going to realize, he did what he did and he’s going to do what he’s going to do because they are coming. They told him to break Jeff Hardy, they told him to put his hands around the throat of Hulk Hogan, and they told him to destroy anything that comes in his path, including Mr. Anderson. Because when they get here, TNA will never be the same. There will be no stopping them. There will be no stopping The Monster, Abyss.

Tenay hypes up the main event as we head to commercial.
