TNA Impact Review 5/7/09

The Main Event Mafia start off the night by walking out to the ring, as usual. Kurt Angle says that he told Mick Foley that he did everything he wanted to do last week. He says the only reason he didn’t take his job is so Foley can save his dignity. Angle will be in the main event at Sacrifice and puts up his position as the Main Event Mafia Godfather. Angle says that he is going to address a rumor. He asks Foley why would he put that kind of a match free on TV and why not tell the MEM about the match? Kurt Angle says that if the Mafia is in this 10 man tag match tonight, Foley needs to explain why.

Mick Foley comes out with Christopher Daniels. He says there will be the announced match because they need a power show. Foley says there is a difference between what happened two weeks ago and what happened last week. Angle brings up the gold medal and broken neck. Foley says it was the young guys and management that allow them to exist. Mick Foley says that he will be the Godfather of the MEM.

Jeff Jarrett and AJ Styles come out next. Jarrett says that the next decision will be made over his dead body. Foley says anything done is strictly business. Jarrett storms off and Angle asks can’t they all just get along.

Suicide hits a huge drop kick and a rolling press slam for two. Creed hits a couple big kicks for a two count. Creed takes Suicide into the corner.

Mike Tenay is with the Main Event Mafia: Angle talks about how they are a family and they will get through it. He says the goal of the Mafia is to hold every title at once. The women appear to have not put the past behind them. Angle says he will win the title for the family. Steiner says that Jarrett’s friendship with him is over.

Lauren is with Taylor Wilde. Taylor Wilde has a secret admirer apparently. She is freaking out about everything. Wilde asks Lauren if she will go with her. So, this double date will feature Abyss. This is going to be awesome.

Matt Morgan vs Main Event Mafia Security (Rocco and Sal)

Morgan will be going up against Sal first. Morgan shoves Sal into the corner. Morgan hits a shoulder block and a head butt. Sal tags in Rocco and Morgan hits a couple big elbows on Rocco. Matt Morgan floats over and hits a chokeslam. Morgan goes for a powerbomb but Sal stops him. Sal is in now and he pushes him away and takes both Rocco and Sal. A drop kick takes Rocco out of the ring and a Carbon Footprint on Sal earns the three count. Typical Squash match. 2 out of 5 stars.

Lauren is with Raisha Saeed and Awesome Kong. Saeed says The Beautiful People will suffer the same fate as Madison Rayne.

Stretcher Match: Awesome Kong vs Velvet Sky w/ Angelina Love

Madison Rayne was in this match last week and got destroyed. I have to figure Sky is next and Angelina Love won’t be far behind. Earl Hebner sends Raisha Saeed and Angelina love to the back. Velvet Sky hits a couple forearms, but they have no effect. Kong hits a clothesline and follows it up with two Implant Busters. The crowd is chanting “One More Time” and Kong hits another Implant Buster. At six, another Implant Busters is hit and yet another. That is number four.

Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed call out Christopher Daniels to question his being Suicide. They praise him for the X Division and how he helped build it. Jay Lethal’s two cents are absolutely hilarious. Creed says he knows Daniels is Suicide. Lethal grabs Daniels and says that he needs to explain himself or that is what I think he said. Daniels says that Lethal is the biggest jerk in TNA. Creed stops Lethal and Daniels from fighting. The Motor City Machine Guns come out and say that some families play video games for fun.
