“They’re Here?“

Saturday 17/07/2010 @ 9pm on Bravo. Originally aired Thursday 15/07/2010 on SPIKE!

Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz

We kick things off with a video package of the happenings of Victory Road.

We join Tenay and Taz as they let us know what’s in store for us tonight. Tonight, Beer Money and MCMG face off in a Ladder match, the first of a best of 5 series!!! Wow TNA’s listening to the fans, that should be awesome. Taylor Wilde and Sarita are going to face off in a Street Fight, and Jay Lethal (#5) does battle with Jeff Hardy (#2)…..erm they just inadvertedly released two of the rankings ahead of time….D’OH!

And speaking of the top 10, here are the updated Top Ten rankings.

#10 – Rob Terry
#9 – The Pope
#8 – Kurt Angle
#7 – Hernandez
#6 – AJ Styles
#5 – Jay Lethal
#4 – Samoa Joe
#3 – Mr. Anderson
#2 – Jeff Hardy
#1 – Abyss!!!

Holy moly Abyss is the number  1 contender! And here he comes to the ring!!! He’s got a big thing of meat, looks like a cows leg and the 2X4. Abyss says they have a plan for RVD, that involves him and his girl. It’s a plan like nothing you have ever experienced before, and it’s beyond extreme. Beyond anything you’ve ever done in the business, ever. And tonight, Abyss is going to share that plan with Rob. He’s first awaiting some final instructions from them. Abyss introduces us to his girl, Janice. She’s beautiful, tall, sophisticated, sexy and sharp. But Rob, there’s a dark side to Janice, a side that like pain. He starts beating the meat with the weapon, and it snaps. He’s now biting it. She’s also one helluva cook. But don’t worry RVD, because before it’s all over and done with, you’re going to realize just what a bitch Janice is. Alrighty then.

In the back we see Taylor Wilde and Sarita brawling. Sarita is throwing Taylor repeatedly into walls. Taylor fights back and throws Sarita into some stuff. This is kind of dragging. Sarita says she’s always been better than her. Sarita ducks a chair shot and they keep brawling. Armbar by Sarita and we’re heading to commercial.

We’re back and Sarita and Taylor are fighting around the crowd. The bell rings, i guess this is the match starting guys.

Match 1 : Street Fight – Taylor Wilde vs Sarita

  • Huge chair shot by Taylor to the head of Sarita.
  • Taylor starts yelling at Sarita. Sarita splashes something in Taylor’s face, and she’s blinded.

  • Hope she doesn’t get fired 🙂
  • The ref calls for it to end as Taylor passes out.
  • Winner: Sarita
  • To be honest with ya ‘m just glad its over. I watch Xplosion every week and i’m totally burnt out looking at these two. The brawl is a neat idea but neither of these two really were that extreme. If your gonna do it, do it right. Taylor must have lifted a chair like a million times and failed to use it 99% of the time, whats the point?

RVD is walking in the back. He says that he doesn’t get scared by threats, but rises to the challenge. He asks if Abyss is gonna be ready to use that thing tonight…..erm so is that an official match or what…..very fast paced tonight, nobody is explaining very much….i’m intrigued though

Ms. Tessmacher is in Bischoff’s office in the back and on the phone. Sweet success, finally, says something about being in charge, guess she is second in command when Bisch is gone. Kevin Nash walks in. He asks for Bischoff, but Tessmacher says he’s not there. She asks if there”s something she can help him with, and he says no and leaves. He walks back in and says that there actually is something. Ten o’clock tonight, he’ll be the last meeting of the night.

Match 2 : Non-Title – I Quit Match – Brian Kendrick vs X-Division Champion Douglas Williams

But Kendricks post match celebration is interrupted, here comes Kevin Nash. Kendrick is still in the ring. He says Nash is taking his time, and Nash chokeslams him. Nash grabs a mic and says he’s so tired of Hogan and Bischoff dodging him. He can’t find TV time here? When Kevin Nash dies, he’ll never be replaced. There’s only going to be one like him, 6 foot ten, built like a god. He’s a legend. If he can’t get our attention, he’ll start taking out some of the young boys so they start paying attention. Nash goes for the Jakknife on Kendrick, and here comes Jeff Jarrett. He tells Kevin to relax, and that it’s the last thing they need. Sting got suspended, does Nash want to be next. Nash asks what he’s doing out here. Jarrett says Nash has a problem with Hogan and Bischoff just like Sting did. Look at who Hogan and Bischoff are getting behind these days, like Jay Lethal. Nash says all he did was come out here to make sure he got Bischoff and Hogans attention. Jarrett says he guesses it’s business as usual. Kevin wants everybody’s attention. Kevin’s a glory hound. Nash agrees. Jarrett calls him an egotistical son of a bitch. Nash says there’s a lot of people who would say he’s the greatest worker in this business. HA. He looks in Jarrett’s eyes and he’s not to sure they fool him. Why would Jarrett be sticking up for Hogan and Bischoff? If Jarrett wants a problem with Nash, he’s got it. As far as who the best worker is, stay tuned, and they’ll find out. Hmmmm this is interesting….

Nash is in the back. He says it’s Jeff’s company, some guys come in and take over, send him home, and now he’s defending them? Probably around ten o’clock tonight, he’ll have all the answers he needs.

Lacey and Velvet are in the back. Velvet asks what kind of explanation Madison could give them for her behavior, especially now that she’s adding a fourth member to the group. Lacey wants to listen to Madison’s side of the story. Velvet says ok, and then when she’s done explaining herself, she’s going to add an explanation point to that sentence, that being her foot up Madison’s ass.

Madison Rayne is in the ring. She says she is out here to formally protest the decision made by referee Andrew Thomas at Victory Road, when he stripped her of the Knockout’s title. The stipulation of the match was that if either member of TBP interfered with her match against Angelina Love, she would be disqualified and Angelina would become champion. That didn’t happen. She’s demanding that within 7 days of right now, either that decision be reversed and she be given back the title, or she will sue TNA for every penny that it is worth. What’s that, like 13 pennies. Here comes Velvet and Lacey.

Velvet’s pissed. Velvet asks what the hell makes Madison think she can bring someone into their group. What the hell is wrong with Madison. Madison tells her to relax and she’s been taking her dumb blonde pills again. Being the genius that Madison is, she took matters into her own hands. Velvet says Madison must have overdosed on hers. Velvet says this is about Madison saying that she didn’t need them anymore. Madison says she doesn’t need you. Velvet says she’s going to kick Madison’s ass all over this ring. Lacey separates them, and here comes Angelina Love. She says she doesn’t know what’s worst. The bitches who act on The Hills, or the bitches who are in the ring right now. Angelina asks if she thinks she’s buying anything Velvet’s saying. Angelina says she can recognize those big boobs anywhere. Velvet asks if she really thinks it was her on that motorcycle. She has never been so insulted. Did you happen to see the dumpy ass on that person. If she doesn’t want to believe that, believe this. Madison is all hers. Velvet’s out. Velvet and Lacey walk up the ramp. Velvet says Madison’s all hers. Madison tells Angelina to get down to the ring and give her back the title. Angelina gets in the ring. Baby wants her belt back. Angelina tells her to try and come get it. Madison hits Angelina. Spear by Angelina. CAT FIGHT!!!! The motorcycle has just rolled in. God does that look corny. The person grabs Angelina nd throws her into the turnbuckle, and is now choking her. Madison takes Angelina and DDT’s her into the chair. Lacey is just watching on from the ramp. Madison gets on the back of the motorcycle with the mystery woman, and they ride off.

Hardy is in the back. He says it’s him vs Lethal tonight, and the question is if Jay Lethal can beat Jeff Hardy.

We come back and Flair is in the ring with Styles and Kaz. Flair says he’s talking about the two first members of Fortune. He knew AJ had it. AJ, the face of TNA. And Kazarian is a movie star. Here comes Desmond Wolfe. Flair asks what he wants. Wolfe says he knows the American’s don’t like giving the English credit for anything, but if anyone deserves to be in Fortune, it’s him. He tells Flair to listen when he’s talking to him. Here comes Abyss, and hes got Janice!! Fortune and Wolfe bail out. Abyss picks up the mic. He tells RVD to come to him. And here we go. Rob comes out to the ring!!

Abyss says it’s time for him to share the plans that they have for him. He’s said it for the past few weeks, and he’ll reiterate it tonight. Very soon, they are coming to TNA. And when they get here, they are taking TNA over. And there is nothing that Rob, or Dixie, or anyone of these ignorant sheep are going to be able to do about it. They have asked Abyss to pave the way for them, and in that process, they have instructed him to get the TNA World title off of Rob. So Rob, they laid out a blueprint. So here’s the question. They’re going to take his girl Janice, and they’re going to hang her 15 feet high above the ring, and he and Rob are going to have the most extreme match in the history of pro wrestling. His girl Janice told him that she wants a piece of Rob’s ass. Woah. So the only thing left is the when and the where. But how about he and Rob get extreme. Rob grabs the mic from Abyss. He says he knows what the title means to everybody. He’s going to try and not take this personally, but this is his. You know what Rob loves about being World Champion. It’s the standards he gets to set. Rob hits Abyss, and here we go. Right hands and dropkicks by Rob. Knee’s by Rob to the head of Abyss. Liger kick connects. Rob mounts Abyss in the corner and hits him with the rights, but Abyss pushes him off. Boot by Abyss. Chokeslam by The Monster. Abyss picks up Janice. Mick FRIKKEN Foley is on the stage!!!! Abyss is staring at him. The ECW guys are in the ring!!!! But wait they’re taking out Abyss!!! Security is lightly jogging to the ring. The ECW guys take them out. GORE!!! The TNA locker room’s coming out (though not many). More security and refs come out, but to no avail. Here come more guys, but they’re being taken out one by one. RVD is standing in the corner. D’Lo Brown is out, but even he gets taken out. AL Snow is out too…but he appears to be helping the ECW guys! RVD is helping taking out everyone. Al Snow is helping too. This is madness. Brother Devon’s out, and he’s helping out the ECW guys. Jeff Jarrett comes running out, but no one’s stopping. Dixie’s watching on in the crowd. Dixie gets a mic and tells everyone to stop, noone is listening, she yells STOP louder, they begin to stop….. She says SHE invited them here!!! WOAH! WTF!!! That’s how we’re gonna close. I’ll let you guys judge this ending, i personally loved it, i expected the ECW guys to be “THEY”, now i don’t have a clue what’s going on, this is great stuff from TNA of late, this story has so many twists and turns, i can’t wait till next week, see you then!!
