Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/tna-impact-wrestling-2212013-review.html
Daniels called Bully Ray – Bully Raymond and Kaz said someone needed to rub tanning lotion on Brooke Hogan’s butt and tweet tasteless photos of her, so it might as well be Bully. Then they all got into a brawl. My internet went out here. Side note, if you are ever considering Comcast internet. Stay far away from it. It’s awful.
Sting talked in the back with Magnus:
Knockouts title - Tara vs Velvet Sky
Gail Kim was at the booth. Now that is an upgrade over Taz. She was accusing the ref, the former Tiffany, of screwing her over last week.
|Jesse gets tossed out|
Austin Aries vs Hernandez
Sting was showing Park what a rib is and Park wanted in the cage match at Lockdown.
X Division Title - Rob Van Dam vs Kenny King
If King loses, he's out of the X Division.
|Amazing bridging german suplex by Rob Van Dam|
Sting and Kurt Angle talked backstage with Angle seeing Sting's team roster. Angle didn't like it and questioned someone being in, but Sting said desperate times call for desperate measures. Presumably the mystery person is Joseph Park.
Hulk had knee surgery and posted a scar of it from twitter. Taz said it was photoshopped.
Ace's and 8's came out for a promo:
Sting announced his team:
They announced Ivelisse Velez as the gut check challenger for tonight. She was on Tough Enough.
Kurt followed Ace's backstage:
They then showed a girl named Lei'D Tapa for the gut check challenge:
Ivelisse Velez vs Lei'D Tapa
They said Ivelisse had a MMA fight for tommorow but cancelled it. Tapa they said was from Tonga.
Austin Aries went to see Jeff Hardy in the back. He saw Hardy doing squats and said he should do Hardy squats, which he said were squats with the Jeff Hardy pointing pose. That was hilarious. He then said he wanted Hardy to win as Bully Ray was in Hogan's pocket just as Hardy used to be. Jeff laughed it off.
They interviewed AJ Stylez's wife:
Robbie E came out to talk and said there was a bigger and better bro and called out Rob Terry:
Bad Influence vs Jeff Hardy and Bully Ray
Kurt Angle got into the Ace's clubhouse in the back and unmasked someone before getting jumped. He played it like the guy played him and said, "How could you?". Who did Kurt Angle unmask? I'm not sure but considering he made it seem like he was a friend, I'm thinking AJ Styles due to AJ changing his persona, being against TNA and wearing the leather jacket on his motorcycle. Joseph Park isn't a bad guess either.
Overall thoughts: Really good show overall with some good wrestling and Austin Aries being Awesome. Check it out!
