IMPACT Wrestling - Airing 11th August (USA); 16th August (UK)
Impact started with Immortal (Bully Ray, Scott Steiner, Gunner, Abyss, and Ken Anderson) in the ring. Ray calls out Abyss about how he has gone soft because all he seems to do is lose matches. Ray also mentions that there is going to be a Bound for Glory Series Match tonight and it is going to be a Four Way Match with him, Gunner, Scott Steiner, and Crimson. Ray says that he is going to be winning the match because he is on the road to becoming the World Heavyweight Champion.

Ray then turned his attention to Ken Anderson and he said that he had to commend Anderson for being able to take some of the more brutal punishment that Ray had dished out in quite some time. As the promo progressed, Anderson started to laugh at Ray. Ray attacks Anderson before Anderson has the opportunity to do anything. Ray, Steiner, Gunner, and Abyss attack Anderson and beat him up to the point that Anderson had to be stretchered out of the ring.

In a Number One Contender’s Match for the TNA Knockouts Title Mickie James defeated Madison Rayne.

In an X Division Title Match, Brian Kendrick defeated Robbie E (with Cookie) to retain the title. Austin Aries joined Taz and Mike Tenay at the announce table to do commentary for the match.

In a Bound for Glory Series Match, Beer Money defeated the team of A.J. Styles and Rob Van Dam and the team of Devon and D’Angelo Dinero when Roode pinned Dinero with the Pay Off. (Roode earns the seven points for the win). Christopher Daniels was at the announce table with Taz and Tenay to provide commentary but he went to the back before the match ended.

The TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle came to the ring to talk about his victory over Sting at Hardcore Justice. Angle apologized to Sting for what happened during the match with the chair after the nice talk that they had last week. Angle says that he meant everything that he said to Sting before Hardcore Justice. Angle did what he did at Hardcore Justice because Dixie Carter lied to him in the past about Jeff and Karen. Angle is not going to let Dixie ever get her company back. Angle walked up the ramp and Sting came out onto the stage. Sting was attacked from behind with a chair by Hulk Hogan. Angle egged on Hogan while Hogan attacked Sting on the ramp to the ring with the chair. Sting had to be helped to the back.

In a non-title match TNA Knockout Tag Team Champions Tara and Brooke Tessmacher defeated ODB and Jackie Moore when Brooke pinned Jackie.

They showed a video of one of the new TNA signees Mr. Pec-Tacular (Jessie Godderz) walking in the back talking about how good looks and how he deserves the best. He goes into catering and he cuts in front of many of the wrestlers who are in line getting food. The wrestlers were not happy with him but Mr. Pec-Tacular ignored their complaints. He then saw some of the Knockouts and he showed himself off to them, but the Knockouts got disgusted with him and walked away.

Jeff and Karen Jarrett come to the ring for a promo. Jeff had the AAA Heavyweight Championship with him and he was wearing ‘traditional’ Mexican clothing including a sombrero and a serape. Jarrett then insulted Mexico before bringing out two Mexican janitors to ask them who the King of Mexico is. The janitors did not speak English so they only said ‘Que’ to everything that Jarrett said. Eventually they said ‘Guerrero’ and that led to Jarrett attacking them. Hector Guerrero came from the Spanish Announce area to help the janitors. Jarrett left the ring when Hector arrived on the scene and Hector helped the janitors. (The janitors in this segment were Florida independent tag team Los Ben Dejos)

In the main event, in a Bound for Glory Series Match, Crimson defeated Gunner, Bully Ray, and Scott Steiner in a Four Way Match when Crimson pinned Gunner with a rollup. The match was a three-on-one handicap match.

Flair says he know who Sting is and says Sting is a real icon. Flair says he has been asked when he is going to wrestle Sting again. Flair has that itch again to be the greatest in the business.

Flair says that since Dixie can't pay him enough he does not wrestle enough but he wants to wrestle Sting one more time. Flair cuts off Sting before he can speak and puts over Sting for the person that he is. Flair says if he beats Sting, Sting will have to retire and never wrestle again. If Sting beats him, he will serve Sting Hogan's ass on a silver platter. Flair reiterates that if Sting loses, Sting is gone for good and has to go back to California.

Sting takes off his trenchcoat and asks the people what they think. They cheer and Sting accepts.

Crimson comes out and is limping because of what Angle did to his knee last week on Impact. Crimson says that it has been a long week. He said he used to have a great deal of respect for someone in the back, but there seems to be some issues they have to discuss. Crimson calls out Kurt Angle.

Angle comes out to the ring and grabs a mic. Crimson says that last week Angle was going to eliminate every young athlete wrestler on the roster and Angle chose him first. He says Kurt failed because he is still standing here and he is pissed. Kurt says that Crimson is a nobody going nowhere. Kurt says he was brought in to make guys like Crimson. Without Kurt Angle, Crimson is nothing but a green-ass little bitch. Angle says he has been making people his entire career and it's gotten him nothing but disrespect.

Crimson says no one has disrespected him. The young guys have put Kurt on a pedestal and he says it's an honor to face him. Kurt says that Crimson can't shine his gold medal and Angle says Crimson is going nowhere in this business. Crimson says he is already somebody. He says that next week, Kurt should meet him in this ring and he will show Kurt who he is and why Crimson is here and the now. He says he is real, he is damn real and leaves.
