Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 5.30.14: TNA Impact
What's up gang, it's Friday and it's time for the TNA Impact recap for the week. Incase you missed last weeks episode of Impact, you really didn't miss much except the newly formed faction of MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley dominating the show. The trio took out The Wolves, Eric Young, Austin Aries and Bully Ray throughout different parts of the show. Ethan Carter III put Bully Ray through a table as Dixie Carter continued being the thorn in Bully's side. Mr. Anderson attacked James Storm during their beer drinking contest. Angelina Love continued to stay one step ahead of Gail Kim and still more friction between Magnus and Bram in their feud with Jeff "Willow" Hardy. Let's get this weeks recap started.
Highlights of Impact:
- More arguing between Bram and Magnus took place. Bram defeated Tigre Uno then went to attack Tigre after the match. Magnus came out and stopped him. Magnus tells Bram that he should challenge someone like Jeff "Willow" Hardy instead.
- The crazy freak show that is The Menagerie returned and beat up The BroMans after The BroMans lost to Mr. Anderson and Gunner in tag team action.
- Bully Ray arrives with tables set up everywhere. Bully says that he wants to see Dixie Carter, Rockstar Spud, EC3, MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley all put through tables and he won't stop till it's done. The power trio of MVP, King and Lashley arrive and attack Bully. Austin Aries, Eric Young and The Wolves hit the ring and make the save.
- MVP, King and Lashley defeated The Wolves and Austin Aries in a six man tag that was set up after the earlier brawl.
- Dixie Carter and Ethan Carter III come out to the ring. Dixie has unfinished business with MVP after they were interrupted last week. MVP, King and Lashley enter the ring where we see Dixie and MVP argue about power. Eric Young and Bully Ray interrupt. MVP announces EY vs. Bully with EC3 as the special referee for the main event.
- Brittany calls out Madison Rayne after losing a tag match to The Beautiful People. Brittany and Rayne begin to argue as The Beautiful People, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, come out and make fun of the two arguing knockouts. Brittany announces that she wants Angelina Love next week in a rematch for the TNA Knockouts Title.
- Bully Ray vs. Eric Young ended in a no contest when Bully attacked EC3. MVP, King and Lashley hit the ring and beat down Bully and EY. The Samoan Submission Machine, Samoa Joe, makes his return to TNA. Joe hits the ring for the save and helps Bully and EY chase out the power trio to close out Impact.
