By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's the TNA Impact recap from last night's show. Impact took place from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Some highlights of last night's show consisted of the first round of the Tag Team Tournament to crown new #1 Contenders to The Wolves' TNA World Tag Team Championship. Bram meets Devon one on one in a "Street Fight Match". Bobby Roode and Bobby Lashley go face to face one week before their TNA World Title Match, as they officially sign their contract, to meet one on one. All this and more, let's get to the recap.

- "#1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament": The Hardy Boys vs. The BroMans: Matt and Jeff hit "poetry in motion" on Jesse and Zema early in the match. The Hardys double team Zema with an elbow and Jeff hits a splash for a near pinfall. Jeff scores another near fall with the jawbreaker mule kick combo on Zema. Zema gets in some offense and tags in Jesse but Jesse gets hit with the split-legged leg drop by Jeff for a near fall. Jeff hits "whisper in the wind" then goes for a "twist of fate". Jesse escapes by shoving Jeff into the ropes. Matt blind tagged in without Jesse seeing it and hits "twist of fate" on Jesse. Jeff climbs the ropes and "swanton bombs" his way to a pinfall on Jesse.

- Bram brags about taking Abyss out of action and is targeting Devon next. Devon hits the ring and brawls with Bram. TNA Security break up the brawl and Kurt Angle announces Bram vs Devon in a "Street Fight Match" later tonight.

- "#1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament": Low Ki and Samoa Joe vs. Samuel Shaw and Gunner: Brittany makes her way out to the ring and begins arguing with Shaw. Gunner and Shaw try to get offense in but Shaw continues to be distracted by Brittany at ringside, who continues to yell at Shaw. Gunner tells Brittany to hit the road, then gets kicked in the head by Low Ki and power slammed by Joe for a near fall. Gunner fights back on Joe after Joe puts Gunner in the corner. Brittany reaches in and grabs Gunner's leg, distracting Gunner. Low Ki kicks Gunner again and Joe locks in the "coquina clutch" forcing Gunner to tap out. After the match Gunner yells at Brittany and again tells her to get lost and leave Shaw alone. Shaw turns on Gunner, as he unloads on Gunner with a steel chair shot. Shaw gets a few more steel chair shots in on Gunner before making out with Brittany.

- MVP accuses Kurt Angle of using Bobby Roode to get vengeance on Bobby Lashley. Kenny King says he and MVP are going to kick ass and win the TNA World Tag Team Championship.

- Rebel vs. Angelina Love: Rebel is in the ring awaiting Love, when out comes the TNA Knockouts Champion, the monster, Havok. Havok attacks Rebel, hits a leg drop and lays Rebel out with a slam to the canvas. Gail Kim hits the ring and lands a few hits to Havok, sending Havok to the floor. Havok throat tosses Gail Kim down on the ramp. Havok and Gail Kim trade punches with each other until TNA Security make the save and pull the ladies apart.

- Kurt Angle says the stakes in the Bobby Roode/Bobby Lashley TNA World Title Match will be huge in the big announcement he'll make for it later during the contract signing.

- "Street Fight Match": Bram vs. Devon: Bram goes after Devon with the turn buckle piece weapon. Devon clotheslines Bram on the floor and chucks a water bottle at Bram. Devon tosses Bram head first into the ring steps then lands a trash can lid shot. Devon lands a one-man con-chair-to on Bram then hits Bram in the corner with a trash can. Bram hits Devon with the trash can then wedged it in the corner. Devon throws Bram head first into the wedged can then drives the can into Bram's family jewels. Magnus comes out and hits Devon with a kendo stick setting Bram up to smack Devon in the head with the turn buckle piece. Bram covers and scores the pinfall.

- "#1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament": Mr. Anderson and Chris Melendez vs. MVP and Kenny King: Melendez hits a couple clotheslines on King then hooks the fisherman's suplex for a near fall. Melendez goes for the fireman's carry on King but MVP breaks it up. Anderson and Melendez double team MVP, but King sneaks in from behind and rolls up Melendez, holding Melendez's tights for the pinfall.

- The Wolves want the best competition TNA can offer. Davey Richards bumps into James Storm and Storm wants Richards to see "the beauty of a revolution".

- "#1 Contenders Tag Team Tournament": Ethan Carter III and Tyrus vs. Eric Young and Rockstar Spud: Spud wants ECIII to start but Tyrus tags in. Spud holds his own and takes down Tyrus. Tyrus misses a splash but Spud can't tag out, as Tyrus takes out EY. ECIII finally tags in and smacks Spud around until Spud fires back. Spud makes the hot tag and EY unloads on Tyrus and ECIII. EY lands the top rope elbow on ECIII for the near fall. EY takes out ECIII and Tyrus with a suicide dive, then Spud follows with a senton bomb. Spud looks to close out the match, but instead gets choked half unconscious by Tyrus, allowing ECIII to score the pinfall.

- Kurt Angle introduces Bobby Roode and Bobby Lashley. Roode says he loves wrestling, last time Lashley was the better man, but Roode knows he can beat Lashley. MVP cuts in and talks up Lashley and brags about Lashley destroying everything in his path. Angle announces that next week, it'll be Bobby Lashley defending the TNA World Title against Bobby Roode. MVP and Kenny King are banned from ringside and Kurt Angle will serve as the special guest referee. Bobby Roode signs the contract first. MVP says this isn't happening. Bobby Lashley ignores MVP and signs the contract to make the match official. Impact closes out with Roode and Lashley staring each other down and Lashley raising the TNA World Title over his head.

And that's a wrap my friends. Till next time, tap or snap.
