WWE Champion Triple H def. ECW Champion Matt Hardy and World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho. Jeff Hardy and Vladimir Kozlov involved after the match. (WATCH | PHOTOS) Triple H proved victorious in the Champions vs. Champions Triple Threat Match, hitting the Pedigree on Matt Hardy as he was closing the door on Chris Jericho. But when Jericho attacked Hardy after the match, Matt’s brother Jeff Hardy came to his aid, staying long enough to hit the Twist of Fate on The Game. As Jeff prepared to go airborne from the familiar ladder, however, Vladimir Kozlov came from nowhere to delivered a vicious mid-flight head butt before laying waste to both him and The King of Kings.
Mark Henry & The Great Khali def. Chavo Guerrero. Big Show and Undertaker involved afterward. (WATCH | PHOTOS) With SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero recovering from the Tombstone she received last week from Undertaker, Big Show ruled SmackDown with an iron fist – forcing Chavo Guerrero to take on The Great Khali & Mark Henry in a Handicap Match. After the self-proclaimed "Mexican Warrior" lost due to the Punjabi Giant’s vicious Vise Grip, Big Show presented him with a devastating knockout punch. When The World’s Largest Athlete addressed The Deadman, his No Mercy opponent emerged with a chilling Throat Slash, indicating that Big Show would soon rest in peace.
Jeff Hardy, Batista, Rey Mysterio & Finlay def. JBL, Kane, MVP & The Brian Kendrick. (WATCH | PHOTOS) The All Star Eight-Man Tag Team Match featuring some of the juggernauts of sports-entertainment proved to be an extremely intense back-and-forth battle. In the end, amidst a flurry of fast-paced attacks by both sides, Jeff Hardy ultimately prevailed for his team, following up Rey Mysterio’s 619 on MVP with an explosive Swanton Bomb on the Ballin’ Superstar.
Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella def. United States Champion Shelton Benjamin. R-Truth involved. (PHOTOS) Santino Marella came to SmackDown for a Champion vs. Champion Match with Shelton Benjamin, bringing the Honk-a-Meter along with him. But, once the action began, it looked like the visiting champion would be visiting the Heartbreak Hotel. However, as The Gold Standard was playing out a beat down, R-Truth suddenly appeared in the crowd, staging a lyrical interruption that caused enough of a distraction for Santino to roll-up Benjamin from the top rope and steal the win.
WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito & Primo with CM Punk def. World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase with Manu. ( PHOTOS) In a dynamic Six-Man Tag Team Match, the Straightedge Superstar joined forces with the new WWE Tag Team Champions. And, after the Colon brothers cleared the ring of Rhodes and Manu, Punk seized the priceless victory, hitting DiBiase with the GTS.
Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix def. Divas Champion Michelle McCool. Maryse distracts Michelle. (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Sexiest Women on Television surrounded the ring in a historic Divas Lumberjack Match – the first time ever that the Women’s Champion met the Divas Champion head-to-head. At the conclusion of the match-up, The Glamazon took advantage of two different interactions between Michelle and Lumberjack Maryse to hit the Glam Slam and walk out of Green Bay triumphant.
NEWS/VIDEO FROM THURSDAY'S "iMPACT!" BROADCAST: MICK FOLEY'S ROLE AT BOUND FOR GLORY, JEFF JARRETT LASHES OUT AT KURT ANGLE, JOE AND STING GO POINT/COUNTERPOINT AND MUCH MORE
There are several news items to report from Thursday's "iMPACT!" as TNA Wrestling prepares for the upcoming "Bound For Glory" Pay-Per-View spectacular on Sunday, October 12!
- On the broadcast, TNA founder Jeff Jarrett had some very candid and angry words for Kurt Angle regarding a recent interview he did in the United Kingdom's "Daily Star" newspaper regarding his old boss, Vince McMahon. To get back at the Olympian, Jarrett aired footage of Angle from when he first came to TNA, including Kurt hammering McMahon. For his comments about TNA, Management Director Jim Cornette fined Angle $25,000!
- Wrestling icon Mick Foley made his first TNA Wrestling in-ring appearance and talked about leaving the WWE and some of the reasons he wanted to come to TNA! However, Foley was interrupted by an angry Kurt Angle. Before the broadcast ended, Foley dropped a bombshell by telling Angle he will be the special guest enforcer for the Jarrett vs. Angle match at "Bound For Glory" on October 12 in Chicago!
- In the Monster's Ball Qualifying match, The Latin American Xchange defeated The Motor City Machineguns to advance to the PPV bout. Later in the broadcast, after some trashing talking by Beer Money, Inc. brought out all the teams involved in the PPV bout, Jim Cornette stuck it to Beer Money by announcing the Monster's Ball match would now be for their TNA World Tag Team Championship! TNAwrestling.com has also revealed that former Chicago Bears star and wrestling personality Steve "Mongo" McMichael will return to the wrestling spotlight at Bound For Glory to be the special referee for the match!
- In a X Division Championship match, Sheik Abdul Bashir retained the gold by beating Jimmy Rave and Eric Young when he beat EY. After the bout, Bashir took great joy in making referee Shane Sewell raise his arm in victory.
- In six man action, the alliance of Booker T and Team 3D defeated AJ Styles, Christian Cage and Jay Lethal after more miscommunication between Cage and Styles.
- In Knockouts tag team action, the tandem of ODB and Rhaka Khan beat The Beautiful People when Rhaka got the pin. After the bout, Cute Kip came out to help Angelina and Velvet attack ODB and Rhaka, but Rhino hit the ring for the save!
-- The 2008 Survivor Series poster has been released and features Randy Orton. While original estimates had Orton returning to the ring in late October, there is a chance he'll be kept out of action until the PPV just to be safe. There are also hopes that John Cena will be healthy in time Survivor Series as well, since the event is being held in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts.
-- Stone Cold Steve Austin's next film project, titled "Damage", will focus on an illegal underground fighting community. The project is not a WWE Studios film. Austin is playing the lead role of John Brickner, a recently paroled convict who is forced into the groups. The film will commence filming on 10/17 in the Vancouver, British Columbia area, directed by Jeff King from a script by Frank Hannah.
-- Undertaker was noticeably limping in the ring during certain spots in his matches on the overseas tour last week as one of his knees is bothering him. Taker had arthroscopic surgery during his time off and his knee was in worse shape than first thought. Additionally, he's in the beginning stages of arthritis. Following surgery, the expectation was that he'd be ready to return for good at his Hell in a Cell match with Edge at SummerSlam, but he took a few more weeks off from doing anything physical. Despite the lingering injury, he's still being booked on house shows in tag matches and his TV taping dark matches are usually kept short. It's been noted that he's often in tremendous pain backstage, but never complains about it and usually doesn't show it in the ring.
Jeff Hardy doesn't appear to be in any serious trouble following an incident at the Nashville International Airport two weeks ago, reports prowrestling.NET. An airport official deemed Hardy too intoxicated to take a flight home, and he wasn't allowed to board his scheduled flight as a result. A number officials breathed sighs of relief as some feared it was something more serious. However, the incident didn't help his standing in the company obviously, but it didn't really hurt it. Also, a number of his friends haven't noticed any signs to indicate that he's slipping back into his old habits, although, there were no red flags when he failed a drug test earlier in the year either.
Chicago Bears Legend Steve McMichael Returns To The Wrestling Ring At “Bound For Glory IV” In Chicago
Steve McMichael is returning to the world of professional wrestling!
McMichael, the popular, charismatic former Chicago Bears defensive tackle who was a full-time pro wrestler for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in the late-1990s, will be a Special Guest Referee at TNA’s “Bound For Glory IV” set for Sunday, Oct. 12, from the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill.
TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter said McMichael’s role at “Bound For Glory IV” will be to “maintain peace, if at all possible,” in the Monster’s Ball match, featuring four tag teams: TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, Team 3D, The Latin American Xchange, and the tandem of “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan and Abyss.
“The Monster’s Ball match at ‘Bound For Glory’ has the potential to be one of the violent, out of control wrestling matches ever held inside TNA’s six-sided ring,” Carter said. “Steve McMichael is a Chicago icon with a solid pro wrestling past. We knew he was one of the only Chicagoans possibly qualified to potentially maintain order in this match. We’re thrilled Steve accepted our offer to be part of TNA’s biggest pay-per-view of the year.”
The event will be available on InDemand, DirecTV, Dish Network, TVN, Viewer's Choice Canada and more. Call your local cable or satellite provider for availability.
The "Bound For Glory IV" weekend kicks off Oct. 11 with TNA's popular Fan Interaction, where fans will get to meet the in-ring stars of TNA, get their autograph and have a photo taken alongside the stars of TNA. Tickets are available at ShopTNA.com
Many have described Kevin Nash's current situation with TNA as very weird as those within TNA stated Nash did fax a contract back to the company last week and key people internally were told he signed. Nash stated on last week's In Your Head radio show that he has yet to sign a new deal with TNA.
The feeling was that TNA could have been starting an angle when they pulled his profile from the website, although that doesn't appear to be likely. The other scenario is that Nash did fax the contract back and didn't agree to merchandising terms, although that isn't clear right now either. The belief among many within TNA is that Nash has signed and will remain with the company as it appears he has agreed to most terms and is simply telling friends he hasn't signed officially yet.

Mike Knox def. Tommy Dreamer (Watch | Photos) After Tommy Dreamer crashed into the ring post incurring a potential injury, Mike Knox capitalized by slamming the dazed ECW Original to the canvas and picking up the win.

“The All-American American” Jack Swagger def. Lenny Lane (Photos) With relative ease, “The All-American American” Jack Swagger took care of business against Lenny Lane using a gutwrench powerbomb to pick up the pinfall.

At an independent show for the IWS promotion in Montreal on Saturday night, former WWE star Joey Mercury came out in his “MNM” outfit with his old theme music playing. Before his match with Kevin Steen, he said in a promo that he’ll be back in WWE at the 2009 Royal Rumble. At a Maryland Championship Wrestling show last month, Mercury said he was going to be back in WWE by the end of the year. Mercury was released from his WWE contract on March 26, 2007 due to issues with drugs. We’ve posted before that CM Punk is playing a role in getting his friend Mercury back into WWE.

Raw General Manager Mike Adamle announced that if Rey Mysterio loses his No Mercy match to Kane, then he must remove his mask; Randy Orton interrupted, but was in turn cut-off by JBL, who was attacked by Batista. (PHOTOS) Adamle explained to the WWE Universe that earlier in the evening, he told Kane he would grant a request to him if the Big Red Monster won his match. Since Kane was indeed victorious, Adamle added a stipulation to the 7-footer’s match against Rey Mysterio: If the Ultimate Underdog is defeated, he must remove his mask in the middle of the ring. Directly afterward, Adamle was interrupted by Randy Orton, demanding that the GM re-suspend CM Punk. Before he could finish, however, JBL made his entrance, taking exception to the Legend Killer’s certainty that he will once again become World Heavyweight Champion. But in an act of retaliation for earlier in the evening, Batista entered the ring and speared the self-made millionaire.
Kane, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase & Manu def. Rey Mysterio, CM Punk, Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne when Kane chokeslammed Kofi. (WATCH | PHOTOS) The multi-generational team of the World Tag Team Champions & Manu were joined by the Big Red Monster in their match against a group of men they all have ill will toward. In spite of Kane’s earlier claim that he would “massacre” Rey Mysterio, it was Kofi Kingston who felt the wrath of the 7-footer, who trampled over the competition on his way to victory.
Jamie Noble & Mickie James def. Paul & Katie Lea Burchill when Jamie forced Paul to tap out. (PHOTOS) Earlier in the night, Jamie Noble searched for a tag team partner for his match against the Burchill siblings, but was turned down by Jillian, who went so far as to mock the Superstar with her rendition of Beck’s “Loser.” But her performance was interrupted by the entrance of Dolph Ziggler, who continued his habit of introducing himself to various Raw Superstars. Just prior to the match, things got even worse for Noble as the 2008 King of the Ring – and Noble’s rival for Layla’s affections – William Regal took a seat on the entranceway, with the lovely Diva at his side. Before the bell rang however, former Women’s Champion Mickie James rushed to the ring, and with her help, Noble was able make Paul Burchill tap out.

(WATCH | PHOTOS) Marella again used the Honk-A-Meter to display his progress in beating the Honky Tonk Man’s record Intercontinental Title reign, and also brought out the Brain-Barometer to demonstrate his mental power’s supposed superiority over Batista. The Animal was all business as he worked over the Italian Superstar, finishing him off with a Batista Bomb. After Batista pinned the Italian Superstar, Women's Champion Beth Phoenix distracted The Animal, allowing his No Mercy opponent, JBL, to brutally assault him.
