Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz

An awesome video package kicks things off, highlighting Abyss’s recent actions.

We start things off immediately with Abyss on the ramp, throwing chairs into the ring. He’s still got the hobo jacket on. Abyss terrorizes the fans at ringside, takes their chairs and starts throwing them into the ring, love the sheer look of terror on those kids faces! Oh to be young again! He goes after So Cal Val now, and she backs off. She trips and Abyss points at her. YOU!!!!! Here comes the Hulkster.

Hogan gets in the ring as Abyss stands on the outside. Taz mentions that Hogan is scheduled for surgery. Abyss gets on the apron, and here comes Bischoff. He gets in between the two and talks to Hogan. Hogan says Abyss is the cancer. Bischoff tells him he can’t do it. Abyss gets in the ring, and for some reason security gets in their way. If Hogan is in charge, can’t he just back them off? Whatever? Abyss is decked in some new black attire. Bischoff calls Abyss an ungrateful son of a bitch and then slaps him. Abyss takes out the security. YOU!!!! Hogan grabs a chair. He nails Abyss in the back with it. And another shot. Abyss no sells it and goozles Hogan. Here comes Jeff Hardy.

Twist of Fate!!!! Hardy hits Abyss with some chairs. SWANTON!! The faces walk off as Abyss is layed out. Abyss gets up and starts yelling at Jeff, saying “You are mine tonight”. Hardy tries to run back to the ring but security holds him off. Great way to kick off the show.

Tenay and Taz welcome us to the show. Tonight, Samoa Joe (#6) and AJ Styles (#4) are going to face off. Abyss goes up to the commentary team. He points at Taz. YOU!!!! Security goes after Abyss but he takes them out. Abyss stares at Taz as we go to commercial.

We’re back, and we get a recap of what just happened. We get a clip of Abyss going apeshit backstage. Strange how he stared down but didn’t attack Taz eh? Taz is in on this i tells ya!

Hogan, Bischoff and Hardy are in the back. Hogan says Abyss is out of control, and they need to find a way to get him gone. Hardy says he’s got Abyss tonight. Hogan asks Hardy if he can put an end to him tonight. Hardy says yes. Bischoff says they have him covered, whatever that means. Hardy says Abyss is going down.

We see Dreamer walking back to his car, and the camera man asks him when he’s going to show up in TNA. Tommy shoves the camera out of his face.

We get a superb video package of The Pope. And here he comes. “Hallelujah” chants the crowd. Pope, who looks like he’s about to start crying, says thank you. He’s says this moment has made him realize that when he comes out and busts his ass, it’s worth every minute of it. OK, he’s crying now. “Pope” chant ensues. He couldn’t have done it without Motha Pope, brother Pope, sister Pope, Dixie Pope, Eric Pope and the whole congregation. They asked if this could be the return of Pope. At 80%, he still has the charge, the obligation and the responsibility to be the Pope of this congregation. And while he’s 80%, he wants to make this real clear. Anderson, he hasn’t forgot about him, and that it’s far from over. They ask how he’s still in the Top Ten. He says he’s not new to the game, and he’s in it to win it. Pope is here for one reason, and that’s to state his claim. He wants back at the #1 position, so he can rightfully take the on the world champion in the number one company in the world. Everyone knows, Pope. Is. Pimpin!! And here comes Kurt Angle.

Angle welcomes Pope back. He just wanted to tell him, that lately he’s been making a lot of noise, him and the congregation. Angle says he’s a big fan, and when he sees him, he sees the future of TNA, and the future is very bright. But he too is trying to climb the rankings for a shot at the world title. So at Victory Road, it’s going to be the Pope vs Kurt Angle. Angle says that’s good news for Pope because he has everything to gain, but it’s bad news for Kurt, because if he loses, it could be his last match. He shakes Dinero’s hand, and says the best man will win. He says he must be victorious and walks off. God this Victory Road card is just stacked right now, love the Pope, love Angle this is gonna rule!

We get a video of the Lethal/Flair rivalry. And here comes Lethal. He’s in super serial mode right now. He says that last week, Styles and Flair, a man that he no longer respects, beat up and attacked his younger brother. His brother’s not a wrestler and he’s not leaving here until AJ and Flair get out here right now. Well, Morgan’s coming out instead.

He apologizes for interrupting Jay. Well, no he’s not. Flair came out here two weeks ago that he was about to form a group called fortune. And much to the surprise of nobody, he was the very first person Flair asked to join. He hasn’t made his mind up on what he’s going to do just yet. There was one thing that he and Flair could agree on. He then hits Jay with a shot, and he and Morgan go at it.

Abyss is in the back with a hammer, hammering nails into a board. Can really understand what he’s saying but he says something about owning TNA. He picks up the board and says it looks like it’s really going to hurt somebody. I just love Abyss and his ever growing arsenal of dangerous weaponry right now!

Match 5 : Taylor Wilde vs TNA Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne

  • She goes for the DDT, but Madison slides out.
  • Angelina sits down on the chair as Madison walks off.

We see Dixie climbing up the rafters as we head to commercial. Don’t do it Dixie!!!

We see Taylor and Sarita brawling in the back. Sarita throws Taylor to the ground and then into some steel box. she takes the box and tries to ram it into her, but Taylor moves out of the way and starts fighting back. CATFIGHT!!! If only Joey Styles was a part of this new ECW faction. Sarita throws her into some fence wall. Security comes in and pulls Taylor back. Sarita slaps her. God, how dumb is security to pull back her instead of Sarita.

Tenay and Taz hype up Victory Road. So far we have:
Angelina Love vs Madison Rayne(C) – TNA Knockouts Championship
Beer Money vs MCMG – Vacant World Tag Team Championship
The Pope (#8) vs Kurt Angle (#10)
Ric Flair vs Jay Lethal
Mr. Anderson vs Jeff Hardy vs Abyss vs RVD(C) – Four Way match – TNA World Heavyweight Championship

No hype for the Morgan/Hernandez cage match? Why Tenay Why?
Dixie finds Sting up in the rafters. Sting asks Dixie if she can see what’s going on around here now. Dixie says she can and that he’s a cancer in TNA. She has no idea what’s gotten into him, but it can’t continue. He’s done this. As of tonight, he’s suspended for 30 days without pay. Sting says he’s been saying it all along but she’s not listening. Eric shows up and calls for security. Sting says forget about it, and tells Dixie to make it indefinite. Sting walks off. Eric says Sting is dangerous and that Dixie needs protection. She needs a bodyguard (hopefully not someone from TNA security given their recent track record) and needs to be protected.

Main Event time!!
