By Raymond Mullan

“The Final Chapter“

Saturday 31/07/2010 @ 11pm on Bravo. Originally aired Thursday 29/07/2010 on SPIKE!

Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz

– We kick things off with Dreamer, Raven, Rhino, Foley, Richards and Devon in the ring. Dreamer says he’s been here for 8 weeks and this is the loudest he’s ever heard the Impact Zone. He knows there’s been a lot of buzz about the 8th and first off, due to some legal complications from the alphabet with some certain letters, they came up with a newer extreme version, EV2.0. First off, he would like to thank Devon for joining them. The question that’s going on amongst all of them is that there’s an angry man who won’t put his differences aside, what’s going on? Devon says he doesn’t know what’s going on, and he wants Ray to come out here right now to settle this once and for all. So Bubba, come on down.

Hulk Hogan & EV 2.0

Hulk Hogan & EV 2.0

And here he comes. Devon says they’ve had their differences and to put them aside, because this is their family. This is where it all began for them, these are the guys who’ve had their back since day 1. So are you in or are you out? Ray walks back up the ramp. Dreamer says Bubba’s his best friend, this is something bigger. This is your favorite rock band Kiss getting the band back together, doing it one more time for the fans. One last night to say thank you to every one that supported them. Foley says make no mistake about it, with him or without him, they’re going to have one hell of a show. But in his humble hardcore opinion, the show will be this much better with his willing participation. Mick’s not a fortune teller, but he can almost guarantee that when he looks back on his career, should he choose not to do this show, this will be the one thing he regrets more than anything. He wants Ray in this ring. Taz has a mic. He tells Ray to just do it. Ray gets in the ring. He asks Devon to answer him one question. Are we gonna light somebody on fire? Devon nods his head. Loud “EV2.0” chant. What the hell, sounds like a lot of fun, he’s in. 3D hugs as the crowd goes crazy. Ray high fives everyone, and here comes the Hulkster!!
Hogan says it’s cool that they’re gonna ride again and thanks them for doing it in TNA. Hogan just wishes that he had known about this, he would have had a few surprises for them, but it’s really cool man. He gets this whole hardcore thing. But these guys are gonna take it to another level. When Dixie made this announcement, she said these guys were to the 90’s as to what he was to the 80’s. Hogan is gonna agree 110% with that, but he missed the whole thing. When they were tearing it up in the 90’s, he was running around with a black beard, doing his whole thing. He’s gonna be able to witness it this time, and no one tears it up like these guys. Eric and Hogan have a special surprise for the fans, and they’re gonna be out to tell everyone the surprise later tonight. And that brings out Abyss (w/ Janice).

Abyss says he hates to break up this extreme reunion, but he’s here to tell us that they are not happy. Not only are they not happy, but they are damn right pissed off, because this little extreme reunion was never a part of their plan. It wasn’t supposed to happen. And they hold one person responsible. It’s not Tommy Dreamer, Mick Foley, any of these ignorant sheep or Hulk. The one person they hold solely responsible is Dixie Carter. Hogan couldn’t care about what they say. Abyss should hit the road dude, find some nice couch in a shrinks office, because right now Tommy Dreamer is a guest here in TNA, and nothing’s gonna go down until Hardcore Justice. Abyss says they’ve given him strict orders to take Tommy Dreamer out, and therefor there will be no Hardcore Justice. Hogan says Tommy’s their guest, and he doesn’t step up until he’s ready at Hardcore Justice. Dreamer says with all due respect, he would love to fight Abyss. He would love to fight Abyss tonight. So if you (Dixie) and you (Hogan) will allow it, he would like to do it for everybody.

– Lacey and Velvet are in the back arguing. Madison walks in and says she’s given a lot of thought into this situation and that they’re not going to get anywhere unless if they stick together. Madison says she’s dominated the division. Velvet says she has a problem that Madison said she thinks she’s better than them. Madison says she extended the offer to both Lacey and Velvet to join them, and Velvet declined. Velvet says it’s too late to apologize. Madison apologizes, but Velvet declines. She says she can’t keep doing this, and they call a truce.

Commercial Break

– The Nature Boy is in the ring, with Beer Money, AJ and Kaz. Flair asks if we can smell that. It’s called excitement in the air. Jay Lethal, wherever you are, they already know Flair’s a wrestling God, and he’s also a wrestling genius. Therfore, in every contract he signs, he has a return contract. Next week, it’s Flair vs Lethal in a Street Fight to the end. Flair is prepared to bleed (I’m sure he is) and sweat. Next week, you got the Nature Boy, Street Fight, WOO, WOO, WOOO!! Now let’s talk about Fortune. This is the great team. Beer Money. The muscle, the real muscle in TNA. Roode says it truly is an honor, but they knew it was only going to be a matter of time before they join Fortune. How could the greatest faction in wrestling today go without the greatest tag team in wrestling today? Tonight is going to be a huge night for Fortune, because when they defeat the Guns inside a Cage, they will become the four time, four time, four time, four time TNA World Tag Team Champions. Flair says let’s talk about the new Global Champion. Kaz says what’s standing here before you is not some silly gang of angry rookies, they’re seasoned vets that know what they’re doing. Styles couldn’t have said it any better himself. You know why they’re the best? Because this man (Flair) deserves the best. He deserves respect, and out of that respect, he’s going to give credibility to the title. How? Whether it be anywhere in the world, if you have a television, you know what drives this sport. This now longer is the Global title. Fortune draws ratings, and this is the Television title. So starting next week, and every week after that, he will honor this title and it starts with you, Rob Terry. He’s going to give him a rematch, not for that crappy Global title, but for the Television title. That is if he can get past Kazarian. He may just cripple you. Flair says in closing, girls, they’ll be at the hotel tonight and they’ll be running all night long. Now, learn to love it, because it’s the best thing going today. WOOOO!!! WOOO!! WOOO!! WOOO!!! WOOOO!!! WOO!!

And here comes Angle!!! Angle says he’s glad to hear AJ will honor that title, but it’s important for him to know that he needs to honor his commitment as well. Unfortunately, AJ’s next in line. Oh it’s real, it’s damn real. God that’s going to be a helluva match.

And here it comes, reluctantly. Morgan jumps up and grabs it. “Ladies and Gentlemen. It is my honor to introduce to you, a man that stands at an astonishing damn near 8 feet tall, he weighed in this morning at a bone crushing 481 bone crushing pounds, he hails from the mean streets of Fairfield, Connecticut, he is the DNA of TNA, the MVP of Spike TV, the blueprint, MATT MORGAN! Wait for it. Wait. Wait for it. MORGAN!!!” And here comes the real Mr. Anderson. Anderson calls for the mic on the ramp. “You see how easy that was”. He throws it up and calls for it again. It comes back down and he grabs it. Anderson doesn’t know what his problem was. It’s easy. Anderson says he’s going to come down there to get a little closer. Anderson gets in the ring. Morgan tells him to relax. Tell him something funny man, don’t you find it ironic that this steel mic, your very calling card, is the very thing that left him in a pool of his own blood. The resident loudmouth of TNA doesn’t have anything to say about that? You wanna hit me? Don’t ya? You wanna take out the big bad wolf? Don’t ya, Kenny? Morgan says he’ll give him the first one for free, but Ken’s way to scared to do it. You hear them cheering. Don’t let you fans down. Right in the kisser. Anderson ducks down and hits him in the nuts. Pow right in the kisser. Invitation accepted bitch. Anderson with the right hands to the head now. Now he has lots to say about it brother. Morgan with the CLAW!!! The Von Erich’s would be proud. Stomps by Morgan. He starts choking Anderson with the cord. Careful, you could get fired. Here comes Jeff Hardy and he’s taking out Morgan. Both Hardy and Anderson are now choking Morgan. Officials run in and take out Anderson and Hardy. And I mean they’re actually taking them out. They throw Hardy to the outside and hold Anderson as Morgan takes a shot. Morgan and Hardy are going at it with the officials. D’Lo, Al Snow and Pat Kenny run out and break it up. D’Lo is getting all up in one guys face. They tell them to get out as we head to commercial.

– We’re back, and we get a recap of the events that just occurred. Christy is backstage with Anderson and Hardy. Anderson asks Jeff if he knows what happened. Anderson says there was a couple of security guys who have been training for about ten years to get into the business, and they had to settle with security. Congratulations, because they got, because they’re going to get to face Jeff Hardy and Mr. Anderson in the ring. And make sure to bring in that 7 foot goof with them.

– Eric and Ms. Tessmacher are in the ring. Bischoff is looking pretty old. Eric says the end always hangs on the beginning. He would like everyone to take out a pen. August 12, 9 P.M eastern, we’re going to see something we’ve never seen before. Dixie Carter motivated him, inspired him. By bringing back Mick Foley after he fired him, the right thing to do. He knows when he was wrong. But what inspired him was that Dixie could give back to the fans. Eric and Hogan said they needed to raise the bar. The guys at Spike, believing in them, said they know what to give the fans. PPV quality action right here on Impact. So that’s what we’re going to do on August 12, and then…. Here comes Abyss (w/ Janice).

Bischoff says he doesn’t want any trouble. Abyss says he just got done speaking with them, and they want him to make the main event for that night. They have given him a blueprint, and it involves the following. Himself, a 15 foot ladder, RVD, and his girl Janice. And what they’re going to do, according to their blueprint, they’re going to hang Janice 15 feet, and he and RVD are going to have the most extreme match ever. And in the end, Abyss is going to climb that ladder, grab his girl Janice, and rip the flesh off RVD’s ass. Awkward. They have told him that you (Eric) is the only one that can make this happen. So make it happen Bischoff. Or do you want the wrath of Janice. Bischoff says he’ll make it happen. Abyss says Bischoff chose wisely. Bischoff’s ok with Abyss, but Janice doesn’t forget a few weeks ago when Eric bitch slapped him. So Janice wants Abyss to show him what a real bitch she is. And here comes RVD with a chair. He throws it at Abyss’s head. Thrust kick off the top. RVD now stomping Abyss in the corner. Chair assisted dropkick in the corner by RVD. Abyss rolls to the outside. Baseball slide by Rob. RVD jumps at Abyss, but Abyss moves and RVD lands throat first on the guardrail. Abyss chases off Dixie Carter. D’Lo, Al Snow and Pat Kenny are back out, this time to stop Abyss. Snow grabs Janice.
