Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 1.27.16: TNA Impact Wrestling

By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, has returned with your TNA Impact Recap Edition.

TNA Impact took place in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, this week. The "Big Money Matt" Era in TNA has officially begun as Matt Hardy revealed his master plan last week. Hardy was able to defeat Ethan Carter in a Last Man Standing Match with his career on the line to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. It's how Hardy won it is what got people talking. Hardy convinced EC3's bodyguard Tyrus to turn on EC3 and Tyrus helped Hardy with the beatdown on EC3. Hardy would win and then belittle the fans and state all he cares about is himself, his wife and his child. Tonight, Jeff Hardy demanded answers from Matt. The Feast Or Fired Match returned with four briefcases up for grabs. The TNA X-Division Championship was on the line in a Triple Threat Match.
