Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's this week's TNA Impact recap for the week.
- Austin Aries kicks off Impact with a microphone in hand. Aries is pissed that Bully Ray denied Aries a World Title shot. Bully Ray interrupts Aries. Bully offers Aries a TNA X-Division Title shot, but Aries declines, because he's held that title too many times and that title is for non-main eventers. Rockstar Spud interrupts next and states his anger with Aries. Bully announces that next week it'll be Spud vs. Aries. The winner wins the "Rockstar" name, but if Aries loses he's fired from TNA. Aries sucker punches Spud on the way out of the ring.
- Backstage, Kurt Angle thanks Chris Melendez for making the save for him last week. Melendez says he needs to beat Eric Young in order to go further in TNA. Angle encourages him to do it.
- Eric Young defeated Chris Melendez, by pinfall. Melendez puts up a decent fight, but gets planted with the Eric Young piledriver. EY covers and scores the pin. After the match, EY looks to do more damage on Melendez. Kurt Angle hits the ring and makes the save, as EY quickly exits the ring.
- Backstage, TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Ethan Carter III, says he's not at all worried about what stipulation Matt Hardy picks for their match. EC3 says he'll bury both Matt and Jeff Hardy.
- Mr. Anderson is interviewed and says he's not afraid to go dark side to beat Bram. Bram says Anderson should kiss his kids goodbye before next week.
