In Ring Segment: We open with a segment of Dixie, ECIII, Magnus and Rockstar Spud talking about TNA’a new investor MVP. Magnus then cuts a promo running down the local fans and putting over Dixie Carter. There are actually “Boring” chants during Magnus’s promo!! They are then joined by MVP and Samoa Joe on the stage!! MVP cuts a promo running down Dixie and the crowd seems to be behind him, he begins putting over Joe and announces he will face the champ at Lockdown. Gunner then interrupts and challenges Magnus to a WHC match next week. Dixie then announces that Gunner will face ECIII in a match with his briefcase on the line. Then MVP one ups her and puts ECIII’s briefcase on the line and says if ECIII cheats MVP himself will come out and level the playing field…

Match #1 (Briefcase vs. Briefcase): ECIII vs. Gunner (Winner: Gunner/Storm, Rating: 3.5 of 4):Magnus interferes in the match right as Gunner was about to get the cases. James Storm comes out to make the save. MVP comes out and makes the match a Tag Team Match between ECII/Magnus against Gunner/Storm for both briefcases. Interesting twist! At one point ECIII and Magnus are arguing over who could take the cases down it was a great comedy section. Solid match with a lot of fun spots by both teams. The finish saw Gunner and Storm walk away with both cases…

Match #2 (6 Man Tag Match): Bro Mans vs. the Wolves/Samoa Joe (Winner: Joe/Wolves via Sub, Rating: 3.5 of 4): This was a awesome fast paced match Joe came running in as soon as his music hit and him and the Wolves cleared the ring. After that it was pedal to the medal all the way and the Wolves proved that they were worth the hype. The finish saw Joe tap out Robbie with the reverse chokehold for the submission. Overall it was a well booked match that saw the crowd get very into it…

Match #3 (Singles Match): MVP vs. Rockstar Spud (Winner: MVP via PF, Rating: 3.0 of 4): This is MVP’s debut match in IMPACT Wrestling. This was about as simple of a squash match as you can get. MVP dominated the entire match with Spud getting in very little offense. MVP finishes with a kick to the face for Spud and the pin for MVP. Overall this was a solid debut match for MVP…

Match #4: (Singles Match): Velvet Sky vs. Chris Sabin (Winner: Sky via DQ, Rating: 2.5 of 4): More of a in ring segment than a match. Sabin opens the match by giving Velvet a free shot. When she refuses he begins to berate her until she kicks him in the crotch. He brags he has a cup and takes it off so she hits him again. As she is beating on him a tall muscular blond comes out and destroys Velvet at Sabin’s command. The woman then counts the 3 when Sabin pins Velvet, She then picks Sabin up and carry him around the ring…

Match #5 (Casket Match)(ME): Bully Ray vs. Mr.Anderson (Winner: Anderson via PF, Rating: 4.0 of 4): This was a very brutal match. These men really made me think that they could hate each other. Anderson ended up bleeding before the match was over. The finish saw him give a crotch shot to Bully Ray and close the casket for the win. Overall a solid main event that IMPACT needed right now…

Backstage Segment: Dixie Carter is offering to buy out MVP and his shares in the company, so she can have full control. MVP turns her down and says he is there to make TNA a better product not for the money. MVP challenges her to a match at Lockdown. They both say you will be sorry and MVP walks off…

Overall Rating: (3.5 of 4): A really good show for a IMPACT wrestling show. The matches were actually really good in ring and left me wanting more. Good job TNA…
