TNA Xplosion Intro

Jeremy Borash and the “Human Suplex Machine” Taz welcome us to the show. JB discusses the fallout from Victory Road, how RVD walked away the champ but the Monster Abyss is certainly not done by any means! Tonight we have Eric Young vs Suicide plus Homicide takes on Orlando Jordan in the Main Event. Plus as ever we take a look back at the week that was with TNA Rewind, but first we go over to Christy Hemme who caught up with Eric Young.

Christy ambushes Eric Young on his way from his car to the building. Christy welcomes him back, his first match back since the big split from Kevin Nash, wants to know how he’s feeling. EY looks downbeat, says he dosen’t know which way is up or down right now. His group got disbanded, he lost his belt in Cardiff – i mean WHO loses a belt in cardiff! lol! and he never speaks with Nash anymore who was one of his closest friends in the business. Says this might be his last match here….Christy is shocked asks him what he means by that, he says it was nice knowing her and walks off!! 

TNA Rewind: We take a look back at the Top 10 Contenders Announcement aswell as the Abyss-RVD show down and the resulting ECW-TNA Brawl.

Commercial Break

We’re back and we join Homicide backstage at the new Xplosion interview set which looks pretty cool. Homicide says the freak only comes out at night! Tell’s Orlando Jordan that in his neighborhood if someone walked in wearing a skimpy pink outfit they’d be beat up and put in the hospital, preying they’d wake up from their coma. Says he doesn’t like  OJ and says he has the biggest heart in TNA, he’s the biggest man in TNA and he’s the toughest S.O.B in TNA…why? because he’s stupid that’s why! (at least he got that right!), that’s his business and that’s how he works. He then tell’s Jordan to go kiss his family goodbye because tonight there’s going to be a body count in TNA courtesy of the notorius 187!

We join Suicide in a dark alley outside. He warns Eric Young that tonight he faces the Dark Saviour, tonight he faces Suicide!! *Does the Suicide pose*. Seems their now dubbing Kiyoshi now with the old Suicide voice, much better tbh.

TNA Rewind: We get highlights from the awesome Ladder match between Beer Money and the Motor City Machine Guns from last week’s iMPACT!

Comemrcial Break

We return with more TNA Rewind: We take a look at highlights from Jeff Hardy and Jay Lethal’s showdown on iMPACT!

We cut to Orlando Jordan in the back. He’s staring at a mannequin that’s wearing a pink feather boa, the mannequin appears to be hanging upside down from the ceiling. OJ says look at us, if you don’t conform to their ways your an outsider, not accepted, an outcast, thrown to the curb like an empty used McDonald’s cup. Says and then they wonder where the anger comes from. Says he didn’t ask for this lifestyle, it was chosen for him and why then is he held responsible. Asks if there was a murder, a crime, an assualt, a roberry? No, just him trying to live his life. Warns everybody that if they don’t like it, then they’ll just have to learn to love it!

Great interview from OJ, really sets out where he’s coming from and gives a reason for his anger and his violent actions, my question is why this type of interview was never done before on iMPACT! when he was initially pushed.
