Not Watching The Show Live?
But as I said, Borash & Christy Hemme are in shill mode with video packages and what not, so for now, I'll let them run with it.
Nope, no matches, no news, just a looped video. Hell, they even told us Sacrifice was "tomorrow" (they said it, not me...). So, let's just do this thing!
Sacrifice begins with a video with the theme of "chicken kissing"...only kidding, it's SACRIFICE of course! We hit the Impact Zone as Tenay gives it the shill and the pyro goes off.
Chris Sabin vs. Jay Lethal vs. Sonjay Dutt in a "I wonder if Randy will be pleased his imitator is a crutain jerker..." match for the TNA X Title
Lethal comes out first, followed by Dutt, and not men are Nash-less. Sabin is last out. Sabin hit the mat, lying down for one of them to take the pin. Dutt obliged, but Lethal pulled him off, Sabin doing so to stir the pot. Dutt & Lethal began to work together, but Lethal tried to steal one, but was stopped by Dutt. Sabin was sent over the top rope, aloowing the face to fight each other. Dutt rolled Lethal into a camel clutch, but Sabin hit a basement dropkick on Lethal, breaking it up. Sabin suggested Dutt do similar, but Dutt kicked Sabin. Sabin leap-frogged a Lethal charge, with Jay spearing Dutt in the corner.
Sabin began to work over Lethal in a corner, as a dueling "Lethal/Sabin" chant got going. A kick to the back of Lethal's head scored Sabin a 2. Lethal blocked a charge, hitting Sabin with a headscissors, but Sabin followed Lethal, allowing him to trip Lethal up as he came off the ropes. However, after a Dutt distraction, Lethal came off the top to the floor with a double axe-handle. They fought over the an aisleway where Dutt hit an Asai Moonsault onto the pair of them.
back in the ring, Dutt went up top, but Sabin crotched him. However, Sonjay blocked a Hurricanrana, but instead hit a dropkick on Lethal. Sabin then downed Dutt. Sabin tossed Lethal to the outside. A suplex scored 2 for Sabin.
We then saw something called "Stomper", the new TNA "mascot" at ringside. Why? Just generally...Why?
Sabin mounted Dutt in the corner, with a choke, butafter a whip another charge was blocked. Lethal came back in and they started taking shots at each other. Very cool sequence.
Dutt & Sabin were up first, Dutt was whipped, but he dodged a charge and hit a cool legdrop while Sabin was on the ropes. He then srpingboiarded in to hit a senton on Lethal for a close 2. Dutt charged Lethal in the corner, but Sabin followed and squashed them both. The hesitation dropkick scored 2 for Sabin. Sbain started to punch on Lethal, before a back elbow scored 2. The dueling chants started again, although West seemed to think it was all for Lethal. Tenay however, provided balance. Lethal hit an overhead release suplex on Dutt, before going hitting the diving elbow on Sabin! However, Dutt broke up the pin. The Lethal combination Sabin scored 2, but Dutt rboke it up with a 450. He scored 2 counts on both opponents. Sabin shoved Dutt into Lethal before rolling him up with tights for the 3 count!
WINNER & STILL X CHAMPION - CHRIS SABIN!
Sabin left with the belt, while in the ring, the 2 challengers got into a shoving match before it erupted. Kevin Nash came out to break them up. Dutt kicked Nash in the back of the leg before heading off.
JB had Robert Roode, who was with Traci, but no Eric. Roode said Eric was at home. Roode told Jarrett that he may have been a champ, but tonight he would do something he hadn't done before. He'd "make" Robert Roode. He said that everyone knew he owned Eric, but tonight they'd find out that he owned Jeff.
Nash approached the desk for a mic. Nash said that on IMpact, Dutt's ass would be his. West & Tenay ran down the rest of the evening's card.
They then sent it to footage of a meet-&-greet with VKM, but Basham & Damaja made a sneak attack and beat them down, with Damaja hitting the Brain Damage on BG through a table, giving him a concussion.
A recap of Jarrett's recent history then aired.
Jeff Jarrett vs. Robert Roode in a "It's always nice to have friends...I wish I did..." match
Roode came out first, followed by Jarrett. As Jeff did his fancy entrance, Roode got the jump on him, sparking a ringside fight, ramming his head into the apron before dropping him on the guard rail. Roode went for a piledriver, but Jeff backdropped out of it. Jeff then took over on the offense. Roode's head met with the announce table, before chasing Traci away. They finally got in the ring. Jarrett choked Roode in the ropes, before sliding in and punching him. Traci interfered, allowing Roode to jump him from behind. Roode put him into the guardrail again, before fired him into the steel steps. Jeff was rolled in the ring for a 2 count. Roode choked Jeff in the ropes, before backing off, allowing Traci to rip at Jeff's face. Roode chopped Jeff, but Jeff came back with fists, before blocking a whip, getting a backslide for 2. However, he was dropped with a lariat for a 2 count.
Roode his a bodyslambefore going to the second rope, but he took too much time, allowing Jeff to put his leg up to block Roode's jump. Jeff got a snap powerslam for 2. They traded sleeper holds. Roode countered his by grabbing the leg, locking in the figure four. Traci helped out for leverage. Jarrett pulled himself back into the middle of the ring, before getting himself to the ropes for the break. Roode rammed Jarrett's knee off the mat.
A "We Want Eric" chant started. He went for another Firgure Four, but it was rolled up for 2. Jarrett hit a right,. but both men took each other out. Jarrett got a few right hands in, before back body dropping Roode, before giving him a cheeky low blow. Roode went to go up top, but he got slammed off. Jarrett got his own Figure Four. Traci got up on the ring, as Roode tapped out. Jarrett let the hold go, in frustration with the ref, allowing Roode to get a cheap shot on Jeff before exposing a turnbuckle. Jarrett blocked the shot, as did Roode, who then hit a chop-block. Roode then pulled Jeff's nuts into the ringpost. Roode got a chair. The ref went to stop him from using the chair. Roode hit himself with the chair, allowing Jeff to hit The Stroke. However, Traci pulled the ref out before the three. Andrew Thomas told Tracfi to take a powder. However, in the confusion, Roode hit Jarrett with a loaded punch for a very close 2 count. Roode went for the guitar, but Thomas stopped Roode using that. Jeff went for the Figure Four, but Roode shoved Jeff off into the exposed turnbuckle. He then hit The Payoff for the three count!!!
WINNER - ROBERT ROODE!
Roode got the mic, and told Jeff that Eric was last seen with a guitar on his head, and he'd get the same. However, Jarrett cut him off, locking in the Figure Four. Traci came back to hit Jeff with the guitar. Eric Young sped out and put Traci in the Figure Four!!!
We went backstage to see a "Victory party" in Christian's locker room. He said they were celebrating. CC said that Tomko & Steiner would win the tag titles, and AJ would win too. However, Steiner cut him off, complaining that Tomko hadn't arrived yet! AJ took over to trash talk Joe. Christian told Steiner to watch him "control his own destiny", with AJ following like a puppy dog...
Christopher Daniels vs. Rhino in a "Since there was Sting & nWo Sting, does this make Daniels "TNA Sting"?" match
As Tenay & West talked about Daniels' direction, another dueling chant got going. Rhino got on a side headlock, but Daniels shoved him off. However, Rhino hit a hard clothesline. Rhino put the headlock back on. Daniels was whipped of the ropes, before being hit with a back body drop. Rhino blocked a whip, and Daniels found himself dumped onto the apron. Daniel pushed Rhino back, but charged into a belly to belly. Daniels avoided a Gore, but outside, Rhino downed Daniels. Rhino went for a pancha but it missed. However, when Rhino got up, he gave Daniels a hip toss. Daniels moved out the way of a charge, Rhino hitting the ring post. Daniels draped the arm over the guardrail.
Daniels went to work on the arm, including wrapping the arm around the rope and an armbreaker, as Tenay WILDLY realised that the arm was Rhino's lead arm for the Gore... Daniels got a standing armbar., but Rhino pucnhed out of hit before hitting a backbreaker. Rhino came off the ropes with a shoulder charge, but it was the bad arm. Both men got up, Rhino hitting a couple of chops, before hitting a powerslam for 2. Daniels went back to work on the arm however, before hitting an STO for 2.
Rhino snapped off a spinebuster for 2. Daniels worked in an armbar, but Rhino got his foot on the ropes. However, when both men got up, Dnaiels hit a jumping kick. He misse dthe BME, before Rhino powered Daniels down for 2. Daniels hit an enziguri, before laying in some punches, but Rhino hit a semi-Gore but Daniels got the ropees. Daniels ducked outside, and with Rhino over him, clocked him with the baseball bat and rolled back in the ring for the three count!
WINNER - CHRISTOPHER DANIELS
Rhino got on the mic and said he didn't come to be cheated, so he was going to kick Daniels ass. They sprinted off, as they "scrambled" a camera to follow that action. However, it wasn't long before they came back out, except Daniels was busted open, as Rhino had smashed him with a chair. Rhino got another and put both together in the ring. Rhino prepped to hit the Rhino Driver, but security sprinted in en masse to stop him.
A Christy/VKM recap aired
Kip James was with JB, and he was on his own as BG was in hospital and Lance Hoyt was, well, who cares. Kip was pissy and he said that Christy was getting hers.
VKM vs. Basham & Damaja in a "HHH's former bitches vs. JBL's former bitches" match
The heels came out first, with Kip James on his own. Basham started for his team. Kip got a Big Boot, but Basham ducked out of a Fameasser.

After the match, they went to beat on Kip, but Kip came back. However, the numbers were too much. However, Lance Hoyt FINALLY ran out to chase off the heels.
A recap of the Chris Harris/James Storm feud.
Leticia caught up with Harris. She asked him what he was thinking. He pointed out his shirtm which had them as a team. He asked Storm if he remembered their friendship. He said that if Storm wanted to break up, all he had to do was ask, but chose the bottle to the head instead. he said that tonight, Storm would be getting the payback.
Chris Harris vs. James Storm in a "What are the odds TNA want to count this as their first match?" Texas Deathmatch
This rules are No DQ, falls count anywhere, and they have to apply a ten count after a pin. Storm came out first with Jackie Moore. Harris followed, symbollically ripping his AMW off. The fight started on the outside. Harris used some handcuffs to choke Storm. They quickly spilled into the crowd. They went to the bleachers, going through the crowd. Harris slammed Storm's head on a wall. Harris tired to dump Storm over, but didn't succeed.
Harris led Storm around to the steps at the other side, where they came back down to the floor. Storm threw a drink in Harris's face, reeling off shots. However, Harris put Storm into a wall. Harris went back to ringside and got the beer bottle. He drank the beer, before going up up and diving over the rails onto Storm. "TNA!" indeed...
Harris scored a 3 count, and after the ring announcer explained the rules, they started the count. Storm got up at 8.They got back to the ring, where Storm threw a chair in Harris's face as we went up top. Storm then hit Harris again, busting Chris wide open. Storm looked under the ring, getting himself a table. he set it up and sat Harris on the top rope. Storm went for a Hurricanrana, but Harris blocked it. Harris went for a sharpshooter, but couldn't get it, so decided to catapult Storm under the table, putting Storm in the "stuck pig" zone.
Harris went for a suplex through the table, but Storm blocked it, before giving Chris a low blow. Storm picked Harris up and hit a spinning cruifix powerbomb through the table for a 3 count. The ring announcer announced another 10 count was beginning. Harris got barely up at 9.
Storm dropped him right away however. Storm went under the ring again, and got another table, blood pouring from his head onto it. Storm set it up on the outside, before getting back in the ring. Storm went for a powerbomb to the floor, but it was blocked. However, Storm dropped Harris with a DDT, while Harris was caught in the ropes.

Jackie stopped a pin attempt, however.Storm crawled back in the ring as Harris got a chair. The chair shot was ducked, with Sotrm hitting a superkick into the chair into Harris's face. However, Harris kicked out of the pin. Storm hit a couple of garbage lid shots, but Harris retaliated with his own. They slugged it out. Harris hit the Catatonic on a garbage can, but that only scored a 2 count!Jackie interfered again, drawing out Gail Kim, cuffing Jackie and taking her to the back. Harris and Storm got bottles, but Harris hit first! He made the pin and scored the three count. However, there was no way Storm was getting up this time. AWESOME match. More than made up for the shambles last month
WINNER - CHRIS HARRIS
In the back, Sting was talking to Daniels, but we missed the first part of it, and so it didn't make sense. Dnaiels left, letting Sting cut a promo on both his opponents, although it mostly targeted Angle...
We saw the technicians changing the ring mat (and boy, it sure as well had a red tinge to it), before we saw some instant highlights of the match.
And then , as if it was edited (seriously, it was a very sudden cut!), we went to:
Tiger Mask IV vs. Jerry Lynn vs. Alex Shelley vs. Senshi in a "Say hello to being an afterthought, Tiger..." match
Tiger Mask IV came out first, followed by Shelley. Then, as we went through So Cal Val's legs, Senshi came out, finally beiung rounded out by Jerry Lynn. And I'll just apologise in advance that I will lose track with where this goes...
This one is Four Corners rules, with Tiger Mask & Shelley standing on the apron with Lynn & Senshi starting it off. They traded holds as West reminisced about Lynn & Senshi in the first year of TNA. Senishi went for the footstomp, but missed it. Lynn took over Senshi with an armbar, but when they got to the ropes, Senshi reversed it, barring the arm himself. Shelley came into the match, with a "Shelley" chant piping up. Lynn tok Shelley over, locking up the arm, but Shelley got up and shoved him off. Lynn ducked a clothesline and snapped off a headscissors. Tiger Mask was brought in. Shelley drew a line in the hand, but when Tiger Mask went for him, Shelley tagged in Senshi.
They traded hammerlocks, but Senshi kicked TM. Senshi got a top wrist lock, but Tiger Mask flipped out of it and they traded flip-floppy moves. Lynn tagged himself in for Senshi. Lynn was taken over by TM, but he missed a corssbody in the corner. An inside cradle from Lynn scored 2. Shelley came infor TM, teeing off on Lynn. Shelley put on a sleeper. Lynn rolled across and tagged TM. TM hit a verison of the Pele Kick before hitting a standing moonsault for 2. Shelley caught TM at the top, before hitting a jawbreaker. TM didn't really sell it though, before they went up top, where TM hit a Super-Tiger Suplex. Senshi came in and came off the ropes with a kick to the head. Sheelley ducked the Shining Wizard, but Senshi kicked him in the back of the head. Lynn dropkicked Shelley off the apron while Senshi and TM fought. Lynn got a Sunset Flip on TM as Senshi was being held for a 2 count. LYnn hit the TKO on TM for 2. Shelley went to work on Lynn. Lynn fought back and went for the tornado DDT, but it was blocked. Lynn went up, but was caught by Lynn. Lynn teased moves on each other them. Shelley got to hit a headscissors, but Lynn rolled through and scored the three count. I guess Shelley's being punished for the "tards" remark.
WINNER - JERRY LYNN
Shelley tired to attack after the bell, but Lynn got the upperhand until Sabin came out. Bob backlund ran in and made the save, beating up both heels before they took a powder...Oh man...
A recap of the tag title feud is aired.
Leticia was wiht the (finally arrived) Tomko. Tomko was asked about his issues with Steiner. Tomko bemoaned Pump as an idiot, before saying that if he's not around he's taking care of business elsewhere, and that it was one thing for Christian to call him out on it, but it was something else for Steiner to do it.
Team 3D vs. LAX vs. Scott Steiner & Tomko in a "After teaming with Test, this should be a doddle..." match for the TNA Tag Team Titles
LAX came out first, and they had a staredown with Hector Guerrero. Steiner & Tomko came out together, as Tenay pondered the lack of trust between the 2. T3D then came out. The other two teams left the ring while the former Dudleyz posed. They held their ground as the heel teams came back in. Steiner & Homicide started off the match. Steiner over-powered Cide to start with, hitting an ugly powerslam. Ray came in off the blind tag, and hit an overhead german on Steiner, but Steiner shot a suplex back on him. Cide took both men down with a dropkick, but both men were back up qiuckly. Cide & Steiner deicded to work together, to work on Ray. Cide was dumped fomr the ring, as Ray tagged in D-Von. D-Von scored 2, but Tomko broke up the pin. Tomko came in, and they slugged it out, but D-Von powerslammed Tomko, but he got up quick, hitting a clothesline.
Hernandez blind tagged in, on Tomko. D-Von hit a Thesz press with punches. D-Von was whipped into Steiner & Tomko's corner, where they wishboned him. Homicide was tagged in by his partner, where they double-teamed him. Steiner tagged in, and started chopping D-Von in the corner, before hitting the Steinerline and elbow drop, before stopping count to do push-ups. Tomko came in and hit a double elbow on D-Von. Stiner put D-Von on the top turnbuckle in the LAX corner.Hernandez came back in, but D-Von whipped him into the corner. D-Von went for a Superplex, but it was blocked, with the LAX-er hitting a splash for 2. Tomko came in, putting D-Von on top. However, D-Von hit a tornado DDT.
LAX prevented D-Von from making the tag, but D-Von rolled thoruhg and made the tag. Ray came in and punched everyone in sight. A DDT on Tomko got 2. It all went mental as order broke down completely with everyone hitting moves on everyone. T3D got the best of it in the end however, as they hit the "Whazzup?" on Homicide. The crowd asked for tables, but as they did, Hernandez dived over the top rope onto them. Tomko & Steiner worked over Homicide. However, Cide rolled through the Doomsday Device for a 2 count. Tomko & Steiner got pissy with each other. Ray tried to steal it, but it only got 2. Steiner held Ray for Tomko, but the Big Boot hit Stiner, allowing them to hit the 3D on Tomko for the win!
WINNERS & STILL CHAMPIONS - TEAM 3D
JB had Kurt Angle, wtith Angle having requested the interview. He said that Sting called him a "gym teacher", but he was the one who went to Walmart to buy face paint every week (BURN!) Angle said that he didn't need to do what Sting did, and that he was a wrestler while Sting was a cartooon.
