TNA Impact 07/10/10

The show starts off with ‘The Monster’ Abyss handcuffing Dixie Carter. Abyss tells Dixie Carter to shut up and says “cry for me Dixie, come on”. Abyss keeps yelling at Dixie, as she continues to cry, Abyss mentions I am taking you to where ‘THEY’ have instructed me to take you. He says he’s its just getting started, and says “give me a tear Dixie”, Dixie then screams for help and says “call for somebody”, and Abyss says “get back”. Dixie then yells “call security”, as the monster tells everyone to get back as he passes through the crew team backstage. Abyss then appears with Dixie entering the arena as the fans continue to boo him. Dixie tries to get out, however Abyss keeps pulling on the handcuff and says “can you smell that”, as the fans yell to him “You Suck”. Abyss says “it’s the smell of power, control”, and he says to Dixie “the arrival at 10 10 10 and ‘THEY’ will arrive and ‘THEY’ will take total control of TNA and Dixie you are gone”. He says to Dixie, “THEY have one question, do you prefer ‘Janice’ or ‘Bob’, which one is it…. You want ‘Janice’?” Then Eric Bischoff comes down with security and tries to back everyone off and tries to calm down Abyss. He then unlocks Dixie as Eric Bischoff tries to talk some sense into him; however Abyss has Janice in his hands and tries to show Dixie; however Dixie quickly runs with security. Eric Bischoff says “it’s over”.

Eric Bischoff then enters the ring, and all of a sudden the music plays and it’s the ‘Icon’ Sting who comes out with Kevin Nash and The Pope.

The Pope starts first and says “I told you last week that you are nothing but a SO a Bischoff” however he mentions maybe you might not be a SO a Bischoff, cause you are out here running the show. The Pope then threatens Eric Bischoff saying that on 10 10 10 the wolfs will be coming and they will crash on you.

Eric Bischoff then mentions that he respects him a lot, however you have no idea. The Pope says “We are not 300 lions, we are 3 calculated wolfs”. He then asks Eric Bischoff, is this bigger than The Pope? And Eric Bischoff replies back saying much bigger. He tells The Pope that you are following these 2 around like they know something; well you are going in the wrong direction my friend he quotes. He mentions that this thing is about Sting and Hogan and suddenly Sting walks up towards Eric Bischoff, just stirring him down.

Sting then says that, it about me and Hogan, well it’s dead on. He says what started 10 years ago will all come crashing down at BFG and the best way Hogan could end it is by getting back in the ring. When at BFG, Hogan will show his true identity and will he be able to walk away? He then tells Eric Bischoff to answer him now and Eric Bischoff says “I got nothing to say to you”. Then Samoa Joe and Jeff Jarrett run towards the ring however are stopped by Eric Bischoff. Eric Bischoff says he can handle this and then explodes on the mic, as he says you really want to know, you guys come out here and threaten me. Well Eric Bischoff then says “you are challenging a guy who is in intensive care, as we speak. But that doesn’t matter to you does it, cause there is nothing that is going to fill in that big black hole”. Then he points his finger to the screen and shows all 3 of them what Hogan is going through and Eric Bischoff mentions that that’s the 8 surgery he has had since February of 2009. They really showed the surgery that Hogan is going through and the pain. After that Eric Bischoff mentions that he really doesn’t care if you guys want to kick my ass. Then another confirmed match is set for BFG, as Eric Bischoff puts Kevin Nash, ‘The Icon’ Sting and The Pope against Samoa Joe and Jeff Jarrett in a 3 on 2 handicap match.

Ric Flair vs. Mick Foley: Falls count anywhere match

Ric Flair comes out in style posing to the fans, and then the hardcore legend arrives. The fans start to cheer for Foley, Foley. Then all of a sudden both of them lock arms and Ric then follows them up with huge chops, kicks and punches to the head. He rips off the tape that was on Mick’s head and causes him to bleed again from his right eye. The blood really starts flowing and gets worse as Mick is thrown outside the ring. As Taz at ring commentary says “when that blood gets into your eye, it’s very tough to see and it really burns”. Ric Flair rams Mick’s head onto the railing forcing more damage on to that eye; however Mick delivers a low blow, as he took a page out of Flair’s book. Flair moves away has he got stunned (which man wouldn’t), then he tosses Ric back into the ring. Whilst Ric is trying to recover, Mick moves the steel steps and pulls out a baseball bat wrapped around with barbed wire, looking very deadly. He rapidly enters the ring and hits Ric straight in the face, as Ric starts to roll towards the ropes, as soon as he gets up Mick hits him again and forces Ric to start bleeding. Now both are bleeding at this point of the match. Mick then delivers constant punches to the forehead of Ric Flairs and after Ric escapes by going underneath the bottom rope and walks towards the commentary desk with Mick following him from behind. Mick hits Ric head first onto the desk followed by a huge chop from Flair. Both of them then walk towards the entrance area and Ric gets hit again to the body with that deadly weapon and then Mick places that onto Ric’s forehead forcing him to bleed more, and causing him more pain and agony. Ric then counters back and throws Mick off the top onto the table, breaking every bone in his body. Both of them are tired and hurt at this point and Ric is taking a breather and Mick is holding his ribs of that incredible fall from the top. The fans are chanting Foley, Foley….

Both of them are covered with blood.


Both of them then appear back in the ring as Ric is now controlling the match. During the commercial break they show how Ric Flair beating up Mick Foley with his own book and then tears it into pieces and stomps on it. Ric is pretty much in control of the match with several punches and kicks to Mick Foley. Both of them are constantly bleeding more and more as it’s a last man standing match.

Flair has brought some thumb tacks and is trying to set Foley, however Foley fights back and Flair lands straight onto them after a back surplex. Mick then goes under the ring and brings in the barbwire board into the ring. Constant rapid fire shots from Foley. It goes really bad, as Foley rams the barb wired board straight onto Flair’s face. Flair tries to fight back after nearly going down, however Mick knocks Flair down and slides the table into the ring. Flair begs for mercy from Mick, however Flair tricks him and low blows him. Flair then sets Foley on the table and then hits him with the barbed wire board and then followed by a huge splash from the top turn buckle. The fans are going crazy chanting TNA, TNA….. Both try to get up after that, however Flair could not get his bearings right as he falls back down, face first onto the thumb tacks as he couldn’t stand back up before the 10 count. Foley just barely gets the victory as he is also dazed from all the violent shots to his body.

Winner: Mick Foley

Bischoff called out Abyss again. Rob Van Dam’s music played instead. Van Dam came to the ring and said he’s fighting Abyss on Sunday or he doesn’t even want to be in TNA. Van Dam said he’s 1,010 percent sure of what he’s saying and his mind is unchangeable.

Van Dam told Bischoff to tell Dixie Carter that Abyss wrestles through Bound For Glory on Sunday or she loses RVD. Bischoff said he’d comply if that’s what RVD really wants.
