TNA Impact (Airing 9/23 on Spike TV):
* Rob Terry vs. Abyss. Winner via DQ, Rob Terry. Abyss used and kept beating on Terry. A bandaged and banged up Rob Van Dam appeared in the crowd and was held back by security. He hit one of them with a chair. Abyss tried to get to him and Al Snow, Simon Diamond and D-Lo Brown ran down with chairs to get Abyss to leave. RVD got in the ring afterwards and calls out Eric Bischoff. Bischoff comes down and RVD talks about all the love he's received. He appreciates it but doesn't want any sympathy. He prides himself on being able to take care of himself. Even though people think he's vulnerable. He's not. He wishes Angle, Anderson and Hardy good luck. RVD says he would've shown up within 30 days but whatever, things happen. He wants the winner of the tournament to put the title up against him. RVD says he also wants Abyss at 10-10-10.

* D'Angelo Dinero comes to the ring while Bischoff is still out there. He says since Bischoff is doing favors, why not do him a favor and tell him what the h--- is going on around here. He says Bischoff is full of it. Pope beat Kazarian in the fatal 4-way tag. Then he pinned Angle in this very ring. He says there was a hiccup at No Surrender but how can RVD get a title shot before him. How can Hardy or Angle get one when they didn't win their match? Bischoff says I hope you're insinuating what I think you are. He says they need to discuss this in the back and leave. The tone suggested Dinero was saying Bischoff is a racist.

* Mr. Anderson is out. He wants us a--holes to make some noise. He says this is a little more personal. He wants to bring out the only Olympic gold medalist in wrestling history, Kurt Angle.

The thing you don't know is that what he does in this ring is who he is. Anderson says bring it on.
* Ladder match for the advantage in a Lethal Lockdown match, AJ Styles vs. Sabu. I'm not 100% sure if that's definitely the stipulation but that's what people around me think was said.

People were fighting everywhere as security tried to break it up. James Storm got in the ring and smashed a beer bottle on Sabu's head and then helped AJ up the ladder for the win.
* Abyss comes to the ring carrying an unconscious Jeff Hardy. He asks Rob Van Dam if he's wondering why he has his best friend Hardy with him? Abyss says seeing RVD was like seeing a ghost. He was never supposed to come back. Seeing him shows how pathetic he really is. Abyss' only mistake was he left RVD breathing. He'll correct that on 10-10-10 and THEY will finally reveal themselves and start their takeover of TNA. He says he and Janice will slaughter RVD but doesn't want to wait until 10-10-10. She wants a piece of meat so get out here RVD. RVD makes his way out slowly with a chair and starts beating Abyss down with the chair. Abyss hits a big boot and turns the tables on RVD.

Nash says bad things happen to bad people. Amazing how Hulk Hogan is in a hospital right now. He says people have been duped by Hogan and Bischoff but the people in the ring know what's going on. Dinero says when you talk about some wolves who know how to run with the pack you talk about these guys. He says Bischoff is a no good lying son of a b----. He says Hogan and Bischoff are liars. Sting says this is about Hogan and Sting from January. No, this goes farther back to WCW. Are people here to see the good guys or the bad guys? At the Bound For Glory it's Sting and Nash against Jarrett and Joe but why not make it a 6 man. Nash, Sting and Dinero against Joe, Jarrett and Hogan. Bischoff comes out and says these three are out here showing their true colors. He says Nash is at the end of his career. Dinero should be careful since he has a lot to accomplish. Back in WCW Sting would pout if he didn't get his way. Nash at least has been consistent and always been self serving. Bischoff is most disappointed in Dinero. He had his shot and lost. There's no conspiracy, just the one in his head. Bischoff says he won't make the match but Hogan will be here live next week to address things.
