We open the show with a recap of last weeks events and ultimately the firing of Mick Foley. Am interested to see how this episode pans out as the go home show before Slammiversary. I have seen no spoilers for either so sit back and enjoy the ride.

As you can expect first out tonight is Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. Hogan tells us that as of now the Network have 100% confidence in them. Is it me but sometimes when they want to get something over they pump crowd noise in? Bischoff also tells us that they will also now present the X Division in a fair and balanced manner.

Chris Sabin sidelined until 2012

Chris Sabin: On the Shelf Until 2012

Chris Sabin: On the Shelf Until 2012

Chris Sabin will be sidelined until 2012 after tearing both the ACL and MCL in his knee during a match last month on iMPACT!. He underwent surgery on his injured knee earlier this month.

Sabin suffered the injury during a match against Anarquia at the April 20 iMPACT! taping. He went for a springboard clothesline and tweaked his knee when the Mexican America member was out-of-position to receive the maneuver. The referee was instructed to end the match when it appeared Sabin was injured.

One Half of the Motor City Machine Guns set to undergo Surgery

Chris Sabin: Set to undergo Knee Surgery

Chris Sabin: Set to undergo Knee Surgery

According to Velvet Sky’s Twitter account, Motor City Machine Gun Chris Sabin will be undergoing knee surgery very soon.

Sabin sustained a knee injury when attempting a springboard maneuver during his bout with Mexican America’s Anarquia during last weeks edition of TNA iMPACT!. This was particularly bad timing as this edition also saw the return of Tag-Team partner Alex Shelley from injury.

The Guns were set to begin a program with Mexican America, however given Sabin’s injury, these plans have been changed and Ink Inc. appear to be taking their place in the feud.
