TNA taped their “Impact Wrestling” Halloween episode on Oct. 24 and set up a new tournament to determine the new TNA World Champion. Here are the “TNA Impact Wrestling” spoilers for the special Halloween episode
This week’s “Impact” ended with AJ Styles refusing the new contract and walking out on the company with the TNA championship belt. The Halloween episode of “Impact” starts with Dixie Carter coming to the ring and announcing that the title is now vacant and there will be a tournament for a new champion.
The wrestlers in the tournament will be Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Chris Sabin, Austin Aries, James Storm and one other to be determined later in the show. That is a fantastic list of wrestlers, and conspicuous by his absence is Bully Ray. The tournament will start on Nov. 7.
The first match saw Gail Kim beat ODB. Ethan Carter III followed that up by beating another jobber, which is all he has fought since debuting.
There was a Gauntlet match next to determine who the eighth man in the tournament would be. Magnus won this by eliminating Sting to get into the world title tournament.
The world tag team champion BroMans beat former champions James Storm and Gunner to retain their titles.
Bobby Roode once again beat Kurt Angle, this time when Angle was knocked out on the outside of the ring. They did another stretcher job with Angle.
The “TNA Impact Wrestling” spoilers also included a comedy spot with Bad Influence acting like Sherlock Holmes and Watson while looking for Abyss.
