TNA Impact Wrestling aired on March 14 from Chicago and the story that debuted at "Lockdown" with Bubba Ray coming out as the leader of Aces & Eights continued. Here is a look at what happened on this big "Impact" show.
The card was supposed to start with a world tag team title match, but Aces & Eights attacked Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez and beat them up, tossing them from the ring. The entire thing was a carbon copy of old-school nWo. Devon then called out his brother, the new world champion Bully Ray.
Bully Ray talked about how he led TNA along, fooled Sting and Hulk Hogan and now is the world champion. He also said they are better than the nWo was. He also continued their slogan that they "never walk alone."
The first match saw Velvet Sky and Mickey James beat Gail Kim and Tara after referee Taryn and Gail got into it again. The next match was a "Lockdown" rematch and Rob Terry once again beat Robbie E in a squash match.
Aces & Eights are angry because they have no merchandise and said they will take it out on someone tonight. After that, Hulk Hogan and Sting argued and Hogan blamed Sting for the Bully Ray fiasco and said Sting made him sick. Next, the Dirty Heels (Bobby Roode and Austin Aries) started blaming Sting for everything, so after Roode snuck off, Sting said he is fighting Aries tonight.
A.J. Styles, who has been gone for weeks, was supposed to come out next. His music started, but he never showed up. Then Chris Daniels and Kaz came out dressed like The Road Warriors (Chicago natives), which was awesome. They even had "Legion of Boom" on their pants. Daniels even did a great Hawk impersonation.
That brought out James Storm, who challenged one of Bad Influence, and Daniels took the challenge. Storm won a great match with the backstabber, but was beat down after the match. A.J. Styles came out to the rescue and leveled Kaz. Daniels looked like he saw a ghost, but when James Storm challenged Bad Influence to get back in the ring, Styles leveled him with a big clothesline and then left.
In the back, Aces & Eights attacked Kurt Angle and took him out.
Joseph Parks came to the ring and sucked up to the Chicago crowd, which brought out Matt Morgan. Morgan told Parks to leave or else, but Parks said he won't back down. Morgan turned to leave, but then came back and hit the Carbon Footprint when Parks wasn't looking. They will fight next week.
Austin Aries came out for his match with Sting next, with Bobby Roode by his side. The two fought a long, decent match, until Aces & Eights ran in at the end and beat down Sting. Bully Ray got the microphone and called out Hulk Hogan to do something about it. Hogan came out and refused to fire them, but said that any TNA wrestler can band together to take out Aces & Eights.
Magnus, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Rob Terry, Kurt Angle, Chavo Guerrero, Hernandez and Joseph Parks came out and attacked. Despite the numbers, Aces & Eights beat them all down and Bully Ray asked Hogan what he was going to do now as the show went off the air.
