-We get a recap of Abyss going crazy, and the wild brawl that ended Impact last week.
-We see Dixie arriving at the Impact zone. She’ll explain what’s been going on later tonight.
-Video package is played. Pretty cool actually, I liked the effects. Pyro goes off, and Tenay and Taz run down the card. Kurt Angle faces Hernandez, Samoa Joe faces Jeff Hardy, and Dixie Carter will explain her actions. We’re kicking things off with a title match though. GET READY TO FLY!!!
Match 1: AJ Styles (w/ Kazarian) vs Rob Terry – TNA Global Championship
Styles and Kaz seem to be on the same page. We get a recap of Styles pinning Terry at Victory Road in that tag team match. Alright, so what exactly are the rules to the Global Championship? I feel like they’ve changed 5 times by now.
Styles hits Terry in the gut but it looks like it hurt AJ more than Terry. Kick by Styles to Terry’s leg and Styles is celebrating like he just won the belt. Clubbing blow by Terry to the back of AJ. Shoulder block in the corner by Terry. Terry throws AJ across the ring. Styles gets the boots up in the corner. Terry catches Styles off a springboard with a military press. AJ counters a chokeslam with a right hand and hits an enzuigiri. AJ gets distracted and turns around into a huge spin kick. Terry goes for the cover but Kaz distracts the ref. Terry takes out Kaz, and that allows AJ to roll up Terry for a two count. Terry goes for a suplex, but Kaz trips the leg and AJ falls on him for the pin. 1…2…3!!
Winner: AJ Styles (The match wasn’t anything special, mainly because it was so short, although that could have worked to their advantage. Either way, Styles holding gold is always a good thing, even if I have no idea what qualifies him to hold the belt)
-Taz says he had no clue about Dixie inviting the former ECW guys. Tonight, Dixie will give an explanation.
-Madison Rayne and Sarita are in the back talking. Madison makes fun of Velvet, and Velvet and Lacey are standing right behind her. Velvet says if she’s got something to say, say it to her face. Madison says she’s not afraid to say anything. Everything in the world is right tonight, because she’s being handed back her Knockout’s title. Madison says she has a match to get ready for tonight.
-Video package for the Sacrifice DVD is shown.
-Dixie is in the back arguing with some guys, including Al Snow and D’Lo. Dixie said Al punched a ref. Someone closes the door.
Match 2: Taylor Wilde and TNA Knockout’s Champion Angelina Love vs Madison Rayne and Sarita
Earl Hebner has a mic. He says that the Board of Directors has instructed him that they have no proof that the person who attacker her was a member of the Beautiful People, so she must surrender the belt. Angelina hits Madison with a right, and here we go.
Massive brawl between these four starts things off. Angelina gets thrown into Sarita. Double suplex to Madison. Clothesline by Angelina to Madison. Sarita gets the tag, but runs into a kick. Spear by Angelina. Tag to Taylor. Modified STO by Sarita. Clothesline by Taylor. Holy shit, Taylor just got dumped on her head on a back suplex. That looked sick. Tag to Angelina and Madison. Angelina with clotheslines. Front slam connects. Sarita breaks up the pin, and Sarita and Taylor Wilde start brawling to the outside. Madison goes for a move, but Angelina counters into the Lights Out.
Winner : Angelina Love and Taylor Wilde (I liked the aggression shown between these four woman, and I’m getting pretty interested in the whole Taylor/Sarita rivalry. This was a pretty average match though)
The mystery biker shows up again. She comes up to ringside. Lacey and Velvet are on the entrance ramp. Sarita and Madison attack Angelina and Taylor. The mystery woman joins in on the action too. They start to leave. Madison tells Lacey to come with them, and she doesn’t know what to do. She leaves with Madison, and Velvet looks pissed. Angelina and Velvet make eye contact.
-Tenay hypes up Angle vs Hernandez, which is up next.
-Dreamer, Raven, Rhino, Stevie and Foley are walking in the back.

Winner : Kurt Angle (Good match between these two. Angle’s been pulling out all the stops with his opponents so far, and this was no different)
Angle celebrates his win, but here comes Kevin Nash. Angle shakes hands with Nash as he walks back up the ramp. Taz reminds us about the Main Event Mafia. Nash says he’s seen Jarrett in the back and would like to talk to him. We’re heading to commercial.
And here comes Double J. Nash says he’s had a week to think about what went down, and something didn’t feel right. Jarrett is amazing and really good at what he does, he almost had Nash convinced that it was Sting’s fault. He’s known Sting for 20 years. Sting used to let him stay with him because Nash was broke and Sting was making big money. Nash isn’t sure if it was Sting’s fault or Jarrett’s. Nash can deal with it, but there’s a group of young guys who look up to Jeff and they are the victims. Jarrett says he has no idea what he’s talking about. He’s not buying it, and he’s sure these people aren’t buying. It was Kev that screwed Hulk and Eric when he did what he did to get Hall and Waltman jobs. He used his deceit to screw this company. Jeff knows him though, and these people know him. Nash says he’s come to his conclusion, he gets it and can live with it. Those three young daughters of Jeff’s though, when they grow up and they get it, and they realize that their father is nothing but a selfish prick, juggle that in your sleep. Nash walks off.
-Dixie is in the back standing around. Angle shows up, and Dixie congratulates him. Kurt asks what’s going on. Dixie says he needs to have faith in her and she knows what she’s doing. Angle says he trusts her.
-Coming up next. Samoa Joe faces Jeff Hardy.

Team 3D are in the back (Ray has a LAX shirt on). Devon asks where was Ray at the end of the show last week. He wants to know if Ray has their back. Ray asks why would he want to have their back? What do they have left to prove. They’ve done more than they’ve ever had.
-Christy Hemme is in the back with RVD. Christy asks him how it felt last week to be with ECW. Rob says it was awesome. It was like being home. He’s so proud of that part of his career. To have that here as he’s world champion, he’s very happy. He says he’s very excited to hear what Dixie’s news is, but he doesn’t know. He’s hoping it’s got something to do with what he’s thinking. He doesn’t know what Dixie’s gonna say and he doesn’t want to miss out on it. He’s got the belt, and Abyss wants it. He has to have eyes in the back of his head.
-Tenay and Taz hype up the Dixie announcement. Tenay says she owes us information. Taz doesn’t agree with that, saying she invited them to her house. Tenay says she has a bond with the audience and we can’t leave the situation open ended. We get a video package highlighting the ECW guys for the last few weeks.
-Dixie is on her way to the ring as she’ll make her announcement after this commercial break.
-And here she comes. She thanks everyone. She’s always said TNA has the best fans in the world. As TNA president, this will be a company about the fans, and her favorite part of her job is meeting everyone personally, thanking everyone and getting to see what they want in TNA. She’s learned a lot through the years, but there’s been one common theme, and that’s the fans love for extreme, hardcore wrestling. So at this time, welcome five gentlemen who made hardcore an art form, and let’s welcome them properly to the Impact Zone.
And here we go. Tommy Dreamer, Rhino, Stevie Richards, Raven and Mick Foley make their way to the ring. Dixie says she wanted them to come here tonight to tell the fans what they mean to the industry. Mick Foley says this is the first time Dixie has delivered a promo. Dixie says this is her being real. What Hulk Hogan meant to the 80′s, these guys meant to ECW in the 90′s. It’s really not about being hardcore, it’s about honor, dedication, respect. Not doing it for paychecks, doing it for the love of the fans. They always gave them what they asked for and more. Dixie has a history with four of them up here. They’re what have helped TNA thrive till today. Foley says it should be them thanking her. Foley appreciates her giving them the chance to make a last impression. No ones last moment should them having their head hung low. If there’s one person who knows something about personal closure, it’s Tommy Dreamer. Foley hands him the mic. Dreamer says he’s watched TNA since the beginning. He’s watched a small company grow. And his friends would tell him to quit his job and come over there. He was scared to though. He saw so many similarities between TNA and ECW. ECW was a place where men unkown became legends. Where legends in the wrestling business came to ECW to reinvent their career. Long before Samoa Joe was dumping people on their heads and choking people out, there was Taz. Ric Flair did for Jay Lethal is what Terry Funk did for him and Mick Foley. Before the Beautiful People was Francine and Beullah. He got to feel TNA at Slammiversary. He got to see a bunch of men and woman do what they do for the people. He thanks Dixie for bringing back the passion. At ECW One Night Stand in 05, he had his closure. But then they brought it back. And he got to witness his friends get fired, destroyed, for what? Until it bothered him so much he had to quit his own job, but he couldn’t stomach watching something like that so much. Foley showed him all the similarities, and they put the plan together, and there was only one person that could make it happen, and that was Dixie. This isn’t an ECW invasion or them taking over, this is about men and woman who lost their jobs and lives were effected about it. This is about the fans that chant it, for his friends that lived it, that their legacy is not destroyed. For one night, give them one night to show them the world what they had and their legacy can live forever. He begs of her. Do you guys want one night? The crowd’s going nuts. Dixie says you can’t come out here and get emotional like that. She asks the fans if they want to do this. They agree. She has one stipulation. They plan it all. It has to be real and what they want. Nothing that has to do with TNA. Loud Sabu chant. Tommy Dreamer – “Impact Zone, we’re going extreme”. Dreamer hugs Dixie as we close out. AWESOME WAY TO END THE SHOW.
The Miz talks about when he'll cash in MITB Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/24/2010 at 05:09 PM
IGN.com has an interview up with The Miz and here are some highlights...
On getting started in wrestling: The Ballard Brothers actually trained me. They taught me how to lock up and how to run the ropes. They taught me all the basics. Other people who were around were Frankie Kazarian. Samoa Joe was down there. Cena had just left when I got there. Right before I came. I don't think anyone else that's in the WWE was there. Mike Knox was in IZW and I wrestled him a couple times while on the independents. Those are the main guys, more or less. Everyone else quits. And trust me, I've seen a lot of people come in and a lot of people quit.
On working with Bryan Danielson on NXT: I loved it. When they said that Bryan Danielson was going to be my "rookie" I thought it was a genius move. It really was. I mean, think about it. I'm the guy who everyone looks down at and says "this guy can't wrestle. We can't stand him." And they look at him like a god. They look at him and call him the best technical wrestler in the world. Now I didn't know Danielson at the time he came in so the way I looked at it was like this: I was like "screw these people who say he's the best. He's never been in the WWE." He's travelled all over the world but the WWE is a different entity. It's nothing like anything he's ever experienced.
On the differences between him and Danielson: People just think I went from reality TV right to the WWE. They think that the WWE sought me out because I was on a reality TV show and they just scooped me up because I liked wrestling. That wasn't the case. I paid my way to get into a school $2,500 by the way. I had to pay out of my own pocket to learn how to wrestle while I was still a star on MTV and doing their shows. And I didn't mind paying because it was one of those things where I knew this was what I wanted to do. So for three years I was on the independents. Sorry it didn't take me ten. My bad. It took me three because I had something that the WWE was looking for. Now does Bryan Danielson have "it?" To be completely honest with you, I think he did a tremendous job while he was on NXT. As far as developing a persona. People are still chanting his name to this day.
Do I think he got the short end of the stick on the whole Nexus thing? Of course. But the fact is he is no longer here so you live and you learn. But as far as Danielson is concerned, he won me over. He changed my mind about him. I thought he was just going to be a guy who couldn't talk. And then I saw a couple of his matches on the independents and I wasn't really blown away. I think it's because everyone kept telling me "he's the best in the world." I think he was so hyped up by all his indie friends that - you know when everyone tells you that a movie is the best and "oh, man. You've gotta see this movie"? You know when you see clips from a movie and it all looks great and then you go see the whole thing and you come out and you say "Well, it was good but...it wasn't as great as everyone said it was." That was Danielson to me. But then I also thought that towards the end he proved himself.
On cashing in his MITB title shot: Cena, And here's why. Because I had six months where I ripped him to shred in my promos. Just months and months of ripping him and ripping him. Right up until the Pay Per View match where he just killed me. And let's face it. I wasn't ready for Cena. We all knew I wasn't ready for Cena. But now? Right now? I think I'm getting there. I'm just at the point where I really think I could take him.
- Brett DiBiase appeared at the FCW show earlier this week as the one-night General Manager role. DiBiase is no longer using crutches and is walking with a slight limp. It's believed DiBiase will be out of action for a few more months. DiBiase is now doing a gimmick similar to his brother Ted, where he has the DiBiase family trust fund.

Unified Tag Team Champions The Hart Dynasty def. The Usos (PHOTOS | WATCH) In a rematch from Money in the Bank, the Unified Tag Team Champions locked up with the impressive young duo known as The Usos. Bitter about their defeat on Sunday, Jimmy & Jey were determined to be The Hart Dynasty in their place tonight, but taking out David Hart Smith & Tyson Kidd is easier said than done. After a brutal contest that saw involvement from Tamina and Natalya, the Harts were able to connect with the Hart Attack to defeat their rivals once again.
Primo def. Yoshi Tatsu (PHOTOS | WATCH) Yoshi Tatsu and Primo have had their share of contests on “WWE Superstars” and tonight’s battle between the two young Superstars was as hard-fought and exciting as ever. Attacking the Puerto Rican Superstar with a variety of devastating kicks, Tatsu was able to control much of the action and seemed close to victory on multiple occasions. But The Cardiac Kid’s high-risk offense got the better of him in the end when Primo managed to reverse an attempted top rope maneuver into a brutal Backstabber for the 1-2-3.
Chavo Guerrero def. JTG (PHOTOS | WATCH) After suffering a surprising loss to Chavo Guerrero on last Thursday’s edition of “WWE Superstars,” JTG was planning on evening up the score tonight. Unfortunately for the Brooklyn Superstar, things did not go his way. Although JTG aggressively attacked his opponent, he wasn’t able to outsmart the crafty veteran. After nailing a big Frog Splash, the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior” picked up yet another win.
MVP & Chris Masters def. Trent Barreta & Caylen Croft (PHOTOS | WATCH) With his NXT Rookie Percy Watson looking on from ringside, the talented MVP put on a clinic on how to succeed in WWE. Teaming with Chris Masters for the first time, the champagne popping Superstar helped silence the explosive offense of The Dudebusters before nailing the Play of the Day for the win. The eccentric Watson was thrilled with his Pro’s victory, but maybe that’s just the way he always behaves.
Former ECW star turns down TNA Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 07/24/2010 at 02:49 PM
Lance Storm posted the following on stormwrestling.com:
I was hoping to write a bigger article about the TNA: ECW Themed PPV, because I am getting bombarded with questions, but I've got a very busy schedule for the next week, so I'll just address this here and now.
I was asked if I would be interested in taking part in the TNA: One Last Stand PPV. I think it was big of them to extend me the offer, considering my general opinion of the TNA product, and want to I thank them for that, but I will not be taking part.
I feel it would be hypocritical of me to work the show, considering my out outspoken views of the TNA product. I have a great deal of respect for the boys who will be working the show as well as the great workers on the TNA roster, but I have no desire to be a part of the TNA creative process. As for ECW, One Night Stand in 2005 was my farewell and am content in letting sleeping dogs lie.
TOTAL NONSTOP ACTION (TNA) WRESTLING ANNOUNCES SPECIAL ‘HARDCORE JUSTICE’ PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT LIVE AUGUST 8
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling President Dixie Carter and “The Extreme Original” Tommy Dreamer announced that “Hard Justice,” TNA’s live pay-per-view event August 8 at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, will transform to “HardCORE Justice,” a one-night-only celebration of extreme, hardcore wrestling featuring a never before seen reunion of legendary wrestling superstars.
Heat between Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels? Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 07/22/2010 at 02:16 PM
It seems there might be some tension right now between WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and former WWE superstar Shawn Michaels. According to Dave Meltzer, McMahon recently made the call to have the announcers no longer mention Michaels on air and for there to be no footage of him shown on WWE television. Reports are circulating that the reasoning behind this was that Michaels was very unhappy about the Bryan Danielson situation. It's also believed that McMahon is upset that HBK decided to call time on his wrestling career, as McMahon felt there was still more years left in the tank. Michaels is said to be very distanced from having any involvement with wrestling at this point.
It's reported that WWE star Mark Henry was injured on RAW this past Monday night. The injury came when Wade Barrett awkwardly dropped Henry on his back at the end of their bout on Raw. For those who may have missed it, Barrett almost fell over when he had Henry on his shoulders to give him his finisher, and when he dropped him to the mat, Henry landed hard on his shoulder and back. It is unknown at this time how serious the injury to Henry is, but it is serious enough that he had to miss the following night's NXT taping.
Latest news on the ECW storyline and Paul Heyman Posted by Corbin Nordhoff on 07/22/2010 at 04:57 PM
Sources indicate that in a recent meeting with TNA President Dixie Carter, Paul Heyman emphasized he didn’t believe in drastic changes, bur rather the way to go is with new talent as the key stars while using a few veterans to give them credibility, not unlike how he used Terry Funk in the original ECW. Ironically, Heyman did not support the idea of an ECW invasion when it was brought up, yet Carter went ahead and did it anyway, plugging Tommy Dreamer into the role that essentially would have belonged to Heyman (both on-screen and behind the scenes).
Heyman is also said to have told Carter to her face that of the older legends they have under contract, she could keep one and get rid of the others, and she didn’t seem to understand why. Carter has been loyal to the stars of the past and has been resistant to giving anyone the authority to hire or fire people. This includes Vince Russo and even Jim Ross, back when they were making a serious play for him.
While the Heyman deal is cold, it is nowhere close to being dead. TNA sees Heyman’s asking for points in the company as merely a negotiating tactic and is still hopeful a deal can be reached.
Broadcast Friday 09/07/2010 at 9pm on the Extreme Sports Channel (UK)
Commentators: Jeremy Borash & Taz
TNA Xplosion Intro
Jeremy Borash and the “Human Suplex Machine” Taz welcome us to the show. Things are heating up as we get closer to Victory Road 2010. Taz says tonight we have a couple of hot matches as Rosie Lottalove takes on Taylor Wilde and Magnus takes on one half of Generation Me – Max Buck in the main event. JB discusses Magnus attacking Rob Terry on last weeks show, we attempt to get an explanation as we join Magnus backstage.
Magnus is sitting on a bench in the locker room. He says he dosen’t need to explain his actions to anybody, but if someone wants to know they should see it for themselves. He brought Rob Terry into TNA and now he needs to learn his place again, and thats below Magnus in the food chain. Thats why he attacked Terry last week and it’s why he’s going to take his global title from him.
He goes on to say if anybody is the face of TNA UK (did we just get a mention on Xplosion?) its him and when you talk about “Global”, well he’s a global star which is why he should be the Global champion. If Rob knows what’s good for him he’ll accept the challenge because if he doesn’t he’ll be in a world of trouble until he does accept. The sooner he deals with it the quicker he can move on. Tonight Rob will get a little taste of what’s in store when he literally wipes the mat with Max Buck.
Next up its time for TNA REWIND as we take a look back at what happened on iMPACT! between “The Monster” Abyss and “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy….
TNA REWIND: Highlights from Abyss vs Jeff Hardy with RVD as special guest referee on this past week’s episode of TNA iMPACT!
Max Buck is backstage in front of the kick-ass TNA logo wall. Says he’s got a opportunity tonight to show the whole TNA world what he’s capable of against a giant like Magnus. Says Generation Me have been showing TNA what their capable of since they got here. They stole the show at Destination X against the Machine Guns. Tonight, its no different, he’s going to go out there and show what he’s capable of. Says Magnus is a big beast of a guys, he may be smaller but he’s quicker and more athletic and Magnus won’t know where he’s coming from. Jeremy Buck enters on screen to tell Max he’s up soon and wishes him good luck.
We join Rosie Lottalove backstage, she’s draped over a red couch and with questionable porno-esque music playing in the background. This….is…just…..wrong! Rosie says she is the plus sized pin-up of the knockouts division. But just because she’s pretty doesn’t mean she can’t pack a punch. Says she plans on being Knockouts champ very soon. Says her bout with Taylor Wilde tonight should be interesting as she’s a former champ and is small and agile, but Rosie is smart and she will catch her. Says Taylor can expect the same thing from Rosie that everyone else does and thats “A whole lotta Rosie!!” Gotta admit her catchphrase is cool.
We join Taylor Wilde who is sitting on the floor of the Knockouts locker room. Says she and Sarita were partners and now after what happened she dosen’t know where to go from here, its a whole new world but she’s ready for it.
We take a quick look back at Sarita and Taylor’s backstage brawl at last week’s iMPACT!
We rejoin Taylor in the locker room. Says she can’t stop thinking about Sarita and how they are no longer tag-partners nor friends and they’ve been beating the ever lasting piss outta each other for god knows how long. Says she’s got a lot of frustrations right now and Rosie Lottalove is going to be on the other side of that tonight. Taylor is worried about settling the score with Sarita, she was supposed to be her friend and can’t understand why she’s doing this. Taylor says its no longer about business, its about her (Sarita’s) sanity!
We cut to the back and see Sarita entering the building. A cameraman tells her she’s not scheduled to be here on Xplosion tonight and asks why she is here. Sarita tells him to get the camera out of her face and not to worry about why she’s here, he’ll find out soon!……i smell a screwjob finish!!

Match 1: Rosie Lottalove vs Taylor Wilde
The Xplosion banner says “Rosey” Lottalove whereas the video wall says “Rosie” Lottalove, can someone please make their mind up!!! Rosie on all fours on the ramp…..please god stop it!! Taz says she’s like a hippo underwater Here we go, lockup, but Rosie powers out Another lockup, Rosie throws Taylor to the mat Attempted kicks from Taylor but blocked by Rosie Attempted punch from Taylor but Rosie catches her and tosses her across the ring Punches in the corner from Taylor but Rosie throws her off. Rosie runs at Taylor who’s in the opposite corner.

We join Homicide backstage. Homicide says he heard Big Rob Terry made an open challenge and guess who just became the Ben Johnson of TNA – that’s him the 187. He says he never liked Rob when they were together in world elite, Rob was just a “doofball”, a big Jeffrey from Toys R Us! (…..at least its an original put down i guess) Tonight he becomes the TNA Global Campeón cos the Freak is going down!
TNA REWIND: We look back at highlights from the Abyss v Mr. Anderson falls count anywhere, no dq main event from last weeks iMPACT!

We join her opponent Daffney, she says last week “Sarita the Cheata” got into her business, so this week she IS her business and she feels sorry for her because tonight Daffney is feeling a little CRAZY! God i love Daffney! they better not job her to Sarita.

Hype for Daffney v Sarita plus later in the show TNA REWIND looks at how far Ric Flair will go to get even with Jay Lethal.
We are in the Knockouts locker room with Taylor Wilde and Sarita. Taylor wants to know what the hell Sarita was thinking interfering in her match last week and asks if she was trying to prove something. Sarita says she was thinking about winning a match for once! Taylor says tonight is Sarita’s match Taylor is not getting involved and is staying here in the back, that seems to be fine with Sarita.
TNA REWIND: We look back at the Kazarian vs Jay Lethal match and the post match beat down of Lethal’s brother by Ric Flair and AJ Styles.
We are back with more TNA REWIND as we look back at Matt Morgan’s interview from iMPACT! Strangely they cut the segment where he injures Homicide, likely because Homicide is up soon in the Main Event here on Xplosion, i thought they’d write Homicide out and put Magnus in instead, i guess not.
Knockouts action time guys!
Match 1: Daffney vs Sarita
We take a look back at last weeks Daffney vs Taylor Wilde match and Sarita’s interference costing Daffney the match Daff has one of the best entrances, that splits thing she does is kick ass!

Praying that this is a Taylor Wilde v Sarita split up in the works, Taylor is so damn talented she really should be competing at the top of the knockouts division, hopefully this is a start. Until next week guys, i’m out!
NXT Taping Results - July 20, 2010 Posted by Steve Carrier on 07/20/2010 at 08:33 PM
A video of Tribute to the Troops: Iraq 2009 was shown while the stage crew setup the ring for NXT. NXT began as Josh Matthews and Michael Cole came to the announce table. Nathan wrote, "If you want to know how close I am, just look for my friend's 'Larry, wish you were here sign' behind the announce table."
Cole and Matthews begin the show as Striker runs through the obstacle course for later on in the show.
MVP was in the ring for the VIP lounge setup as Percy Watson came to the ring. They talked about respect. Striker came to the ring and asked Percy why he should be No. 1 in the poll.
Cody Rhodes and Husky Harris come out next to answer the same question. I couldn't hear the answer due to a lot of "You Suck!" chants. Striker announced that a match between the two teams would be next.
The pros are at the top of the stage.
1. Cody Rhodes and Husky Harris defeated MVP and Percy Watson. Harris got the pin for his team.
Striker came to the ring to give Lucky Cannon and Alex Riley the same question as everyone else. To sum up what Lucky Cannon said, "I'm not going to waste your time.... Thank you." Riley cut a great promo followed by the Miz. Those two are great on the mic.
A recap was shown before the match of Mark Henry's loss to Wade Barrett on Monday Raw.
2. Alex Riley (w/Miz) defeated Lucky Cannon. Mark Henry was not in Cannon's corner. Lucky Cannon took the early advantage. He threw Riley to the ropes and clotheslined him. He went to the top rope and dove off only for Riley to move out of the way.
Riley took the advantage on Cannon by putting him on his shoulders and then giving him a neckbreaker for the pinfall. After Riley got the win, Miz hit Cannon with the Skull Crushing Finale on the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Striker asked Eli cottonwood and John Morrison the same question. Eli Cottonwood looks like a beast. He intimidated Striker by getting up in his face asking him who will he vote for.
LayCool and Kaval were asked the same question. Kaval said that the ball is in the court of the WWE Universe. The obstacle course is up next.
The obstacle course took place with the person with the fastest time earning immunity From elimination. Michael McGillicutty was up first with 26.7 sec. Alex Riley was next with 40.3 seconds and was disqualified. Eli Cottonwood got 37.2 seconds but was also disqualified.
Lucky Cannon got it in 28.2 sec. Kaval was next with 29.1 sec. Percy Watson got through it in 31.5 seconds. Husky Harris went last and got 50.3 seconds. Husky knocked down the third hurdle. I guess he thought he couldn't make it. McGillicutty won the competition and is immune from elimination next week.
- Tommy Dreamer wrote the following on Twitter after Kane won the World Title at Money in the Bank: "Congrats to Kane. If anyone ever deserved being a world champion it is him. Even without knees. He is 1 of the best."
