Impact Wrestling (Airing June 5, 2014):
In a backstage segment (not sure of when it will air on TV), Borash recapped for the crowd how last night there was a drinking contest between James Storm and Mr. Anderson. They showed a promo and both guys were very drunk. Anderson then reveals that he was acting and that Storm is drunk an starts eating him up in the bar and then they take it to the street. Anderson slams Storm into a dumpster and lays him out.
Mr. Anderson came to the ring to James Storm’s old theme dressed as a cowboy. He mocked Storm and got in the ring to talk with Christy Hemme and said how he likes beer. He said “sorry about my damn breath.” He said last week “Anderson” whipped his ass in a beer drinking competition. James Storm came to the ramp. He said he thinks Anderson thinks it’s funny to befriend and drink with a man only to realize he isn’t drinking at all. Anderson said he did find it funny. Storm said Anderson pissed him off and he wants to go another round and that kind of round can’t go down in a bar. Storm said his time is a lot better than these people’s time so what he’s saying is he is closed for business tonight. They ended up brawling around ringside. Storm got the upperhand. He put Anderson in the ring then delivered The Last Call. Storm took a mic and said on June 15th, bring your boots. No idea if they are just doing a singles match or not*
Match 1) Angelina Love w/Velvet Sky defeated Madison Rayne to retain the Knockout’s Championship. Madison got sent I the outside and Brittany came to ringside but didn’t do anything besides stand and ringside and watch while Madison wondered why she was out here. Velvet used the hairspray on Madison and Angelina rolled her up with the tights. Brittany shook her head in disappointment when Madison lost.
Match 1) Willow defeated Bram by DQ. Bram went for a weapon on the floor. Magnus came out and took the weapon from Bram and ended u using it on Willow, causing the DQ.
Samoa Joe’s music hit and he came out. Joe calls out MVP. MVP comes to the ring with Kenny King and Bobby Lashley. Kenny takes a mic and said this is getting old. Joe cuts him off and asks if Kenny is his mouthpiece which case Kenny should kiss his ass. MVP says he doesn’t have much time for this. Joe calls him a scumbag a tyrant and a liar. Joe says they go way back and says how MVP said he was going to do something for the fans but says he is corrupted. MVP updates Joe on his changes since Joe took his ball and went home and said he did his job, Joe did not his. Joe said he will make up for it and challenges the three of them to a fight by himself. MVP says this is a long time coming but now he has a few friends and said that what he wants isn’t going to happen but perhaps he can accommodate him in some other way. MVP says doesn’t he have someone to even up the odds. Joe tells him to put up or shut up. Aries came out and said MVP has his tail tucked between his legs because he only wants to fight when he can stack the deck in his favor. Everyone knows it’s true. MVP said this situation does not concern Aries and said Joe is in breach of his contract and his hands are tied. Aries tells him to untie his hands and make this happen. MVP says since the two of them want a fight, he will give Joe a match where if he wins will be a full time member of the roster. His opponent will be Austin Aries. if either of them lose, they are done.
Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards come out. They are scheduled to have a singles match with each other. Kenny King came to the stage and told them if they dog their performance they will lose the tag titles.
Match 2) Eddie Edwards defeated Davey Richards via rollup. Davey went for a German but his ribs hurt him and Eddie rolled him up. During the match when they were doing some chaining, Kenny would get on the mc and tell them to pick it up.
Kenny came to the rig and told them to fight. He once again threatened to take the belts away from them. The Wolves laid him out.
Backstage they showed Brian Hebner getting ready. MVP told Brian there is a very important match tonight and he needs a clear cut winner and loser. If there is a double countout he doesn’t count out. Double DQ, nothing. No funny business. Brian says it is clear.
Match 3) Austin Aries and Samoa Joe did end up going to a no contest. Hebner was doing fast counts on the floor and for pins. Eric Young came out and talked with him. Ray came out and punched him. Eric said this is about something bigger than them like their two jobs. MVP King and Lashley come out and they say does he think he won’t fire him. Ray said MVP had a god complex and says MVP stands for most valuable piece of crap. Ray says about they do him, EY, Austin Aries, and Samoa Joe vs the three of them and EC3. EY said something to Ray and said how about an 8-man first blood match. Kenny jumped the fun and said yes which MVP and Lashley were not happy about it.
All three members of the Bromans came to the ring. Zema’s booth was already set up in the ring. They took a mic. They talk in the ring about the tag titles and The Menagerie come to the ring. Robbie asks who they think they are. Knox said they are The Menagerie and that they are just like them except Rey have her. Crazy Steve starts squeaking his horn and he and Zema get into a horn battle. The Freak grabs Zema and holds him up. Knox takes out Rovvie and hits Goddarz with a boot, all while The Freak is still holding up Zema. He tosses Zema out of the ring onto the other two members on the floor. In an accidental moment, when he pressed Zema to the outside his mask came off and they had to cover him up, which will probably be edited.
Match 4) In an 8-man tag First Blood Match, Austin Aries/Bully Ray/Eric Young/Samoa Joe defeated Bobby Lashley/EC3/Kenny King/MVP when Ray busted open EC3 with his chain. They worked the match like a traditional 8 man tag for a while, working over EY. The other three went to the ramp when the face team got the upperhand.
Match 1) Sanada defeated Tigre Uno via roll up in a non title match.
The advertised Madison/Angelina match will likely be taped tomorrow. Other than that, nothing is known for tomorrow’s taping. They once again did not say what the other One Night Only will be on Saturday but said the Knockout one will be taped in the evening.
