It’s time for DMTV. Sami Callihan welcomes us to the very 1st episode and says he can spit without getting fined and say what he wants. He is in TNA for 1 reason: right the wrongs of the past. All the idiots and false prophets in the back don’t have a clue. He doesn’t believe in reruns; thumbs up, thumbs down.

Cody Deaner cuts a promo before the match saying he has a battle ahead of him against Hammerstone and says he talked to Santino Marella and they can add a stipulation. Hammerstone says he’s only been in TNA a couple months but his pandering is the worst thing he sees. Hammerstone says if he wants a stipulation, it can be an arm wrestling match. Deaner would prefer something crazier: an Anything Goes, No DQ, Sin City Street Fight. Hammerstone doesn’t like it but it’s not their choice; it’s the peoples’ choice. The people want the Street Fight.

Sin City Street Fight
Alex Hammerstone vs. Cody Deaner

Alex Hammerstone with mounted punches on the mat and then grabs the chair setting it in the middle of the ring. Nightmare Pendulum into the chair but Cody Deaner escapes and hits the bodyslam onto the chair for a two count. Deaner slides out for a table & he gets it in the ring and sets it up. He goes for a forearm but Hammerstone blocks it and hits a suplex. Goozle to Deaner, he shouts Deaner wanted it and chokeslams Deaner through the table.

After the match Hammerstone keeps the hold applied until Jake Something comes out to attack. Officials break it up!

We see a video from last week in which officials say his neck is injured and he can’t compete at Under Siege. Matt Hardy shows up and says he can’t take Nic’s pain but he can take his place. Santino makes it official.

Trent Seven tells Mike Bailey that The System need to be taken down. Bailey says Friday it’s time to delete The System. Matt Hardy says he’s making Speedball Mountain honorary members of House Hardy as Trent the Seventh and The Ball of Speed and they will render The System obsolete.

Santino Marella walks up to Jonathan Gresham and says last time they were here there were rocks in the road but hopefully this time it’s smooth sailing. He’s excited for Gresham’s match with Kushida and welcomes him back. Gresham stays seated in his chair and the weird version of him appears in the other chair. Meanwhile, Marella washes black gunk off his hands.

AJ Francis says from the VIP section that this has been an excellent episode of Impact. He says unfortunately it’s the part of the show where they’re supposed to get their apology. He doesn’t believe it but he’s going to see if he’s a man of his word.

Joe Hendry comes out to the ring with his guitar with a chair set up in the ring and mic. Hendry says it’s time for him to apologize to First Class, noting that his issues with them began in this building with a song so it will end with a song. He reminds the crowd that the 1st song mocked them brutally and he performs the song as a reminder mocking Francis’ NFL career and saying he’ll never be World or X Division champion.

He notes that he did a 2nd song and he performs than one too talking about how Francis is banned from diving. Francis & Swann are not pleased but Hendry says it’s time for the apology song. Before he went low but he’s taking things higher. He spoof’s Creed’s Higher and says he’s sorry he makes fun of them but it’s too easy, and shows a photo of Francis and Swann where Francis’ hand is on Swann’s ass. The song is Can you please get fired? Because it’s happened twice before. He gets the audience to join in on the chorus. He closes with I’m sorry.

Gia Miller welcomes The System down to the ramp. She says Under Siege is tomorrow and asks the guys about their 6 Man Tag Team match. Eddie Edwards says tomorrow night Alisha Edwards will bring gold to The System and that when you see the poster for Under Siege has The System because TNA hates to admit it but they need them.

Brian Myers asks how Speedball Mountain got in the match and that they’re riding Matt’s coattails. Moose says Under Siege is the return of a TNA legend but that Moose has become a TNA legend while he’s been gone. He says The System can’t be deleted and that Speedball Mountain & Hardy will be deleted. Alisha says you always trust The System.

Final Thoughts:
I like that they had a bit more story driven stuff on the show this week rather than wall to wall wrestling. This was a good show, and I really look forward to TNA Under Seige this weekend!
