View Full Version : TNA iMPACT Report for April 23rd, 2009

04-24-2009, 11:29 AM
We start off with a look back at Lockdown when we saw a lot of titles change hand, including Angelina Love, Team 3D, and Mick Foley. Bobby Lashley also made his debut.

We are live on tape from Orlando, Florida and your announcers are Don West and Mike Tenay.

Jeff Jarrett comes to the ring and he has the TNA title belt. Jeff introduces the new TNA Heavyweight Champion, Mick Foley. Mick comes to the ring. Mick says that this is a great moment in TNA history and a great moment for both of them because they have been wanting it for a long time. Mick has someone to thank and he says that it is not Dirk (the cameraman he drop kicked). Mick says that it was bittersweet because while it was a great moment for him, he saw Sting and he was a broken and vanquished man. Mick says that we will probably not see Sting for a while so they want a round of applause for Sting. Jeff says that as founder of TNA it is his duty to award Mick the title belt.

Jeff says that six months ago when they were in house to sign the documents to be executive shareholder, he never thought that he would be in the ring under these circumstances. Jeff says that Mick said that he wanted to focus on a career in the business outside of the ring. Jeff says that he should have known better, but Mick is the TNA Champion. Jeff says that one of his responsibilities is to announce that Mick’s first title defense will be at Sacrifice in Orlando. The title will be defended in a Four Way Match. Jeff says that if Mick loses, he will sacrifice his title; but if one of the three opponents lose, they will be sacrificing something greater. The challengers will be determined by what they are willing to sacrifice.

Mick says that he does not understand Jeff and he wants to know who ‘TNA Management’ is. Mick says that TNA management is him and Jeff and since he did not agree to that match, it must have been Jeff. Mick wonders what happened to one-on-one competition. Mick says that he can see the resentment that Jeff has because Mick is the champion and not him. Mick says that Jeff liked him more when he was pushing pencils because he was the good soldier. Mick says that he is the general now. Mick says that he wants to book a match for Jarrett tonight. Mick says that he can do it despite Jarrett’s hamstring. Mick says that since Cactus Jack was such a positive influence, Jeff will be in a “Cactus Jack Smack Attack” where he will choose some items to use during the match. Mick says that there are four young men in the back who would like to face Jarrett. Those men are the Main Event Mafia. Mick chooses Scott Steiner to face Jarrett.

Lauren is in the back at the Angelina Love celebration. Velvet says that they will be throwing the biggest party to celebrate Angelina’s win.
