TNA Wrestling Twitter

TNA Impact is back tonight (Nov. 17, 2016) from Orlando, Florida and will be airing on Pop TV at 8 EST. This is your spot for the live updates and to talk about it with your fellow fans.

Tonight there will be a Fatal Four Way to become #1 contender for the TNA title involving EC3, Bobby Lashley, Mike Bennett, and Trevor Lee. Also, Eddie Edwards will demand answers from the DCC who attacked him last week.

We'll be here at 8 EST when Impact will be starting, so come join us!



Let's do this.

The show opens with a video recap of the DCC up to now.

Eddie Edwards calls out the DCC

Eddie Edwards makes his way to the ring. He talks about how he is OK with the target on his back because he's champion. He then says he's not leaving the ring until he gets a fight so someone better come on out.

He gets another DCC video, saying that they aren't about titles but chaos. And they accept his challenge.

Back in the arena, the DCC walk to the ring with some new music. Due to the numbers, Eddie Kingston, just referred as Kingston, gets the jump on Edwards. However, Eddie gets a quick advantage and it quickly turns into a 3 on 1 assault. As James Storm sets up to nail Eddie on the head with his the title, Jeff Hardy's music hits. He clears the ring but Storm just stands on the ring apron and stares at him.


Backstage, Eddie Edwards and Jeff Hardy are demanding to Aiden O'Shea to see Billy Corgan because they need a match.

Jessie Godderz vs. Aron Rex

This is not a title match or a Grand Championship style match. Standard one on one.

Jessie comes out hot with some knees to Rex. He follows up by slamming Rex's head into the turnbuckles. Aron is reeling early on. Godderz tries to go for the Adonis Crab but the champ rakes the eyes and follows up with some clubbing blows to the BroMan to take control.

The fight spills outside the ring and Rex is dominating Godderz. He wraps Jessie in the ring apron and lays in some boots as the fight makes its way back into the ring.

Godderz fires up and fights back, which includes a rake to the eyes of his own. The fight spills back outside and Godderz tosses Rex face first into a chair, the ring apron, and the steel steps. He gets Rex back in the ring and starts laying in some punches in the corner.

Jessie goes for a side suplex but Rex escapes and knocks out the leg of Jessie. He tries for a sharpshooter but Godderz fights out and locks in the Adonis Crab which forces Rex to tap out.

Backstage, Maria crew is standing around. Laurel Van Ness says she's getting some texts from Braxton Sutter, which seemed to upset Allie. Maria says that Brandi is all alone and no one is going to want to team up with her to face LVN and Allie. Maria asks Allie if she wouldn't be dumb enough to team with Brandi, to which Allie denies.

They play a video of JB interviewing Gail Kim, who says she needs to vacate her title due to injury.

Eddie Edwards and Jeff Hardy remove from Billy Corgan's office, having gotten the match.

Sienna & Laurel Van Ness vs. Brandi & Madison Rayne

When Brandi comes out without a partner, Maria sends Allie to the back to make sure she's not going to be Brandi's partner. That's when Brandi reveals it's Madison.

Madison hugs Allie on the way to the ring.

Brandi is in the ring first but chases Maria around the ring. When she gets in she ends up tagging in Madison, who starts working over Van Ness. LVN tags in Allie, who's met with a enziguri from the five time champion. However, Madison finds herself in the wrong corner and Sienna is able to take control.

Rayne is the clear face in peril, enduring some double teaming as Brandi tries to get into the ring without a tag. LVN goes for her curb stomp, but Madison is able to roll out of the way and they both land a clothesline on each other.

Brandi finally gets the tag to go face to face with Sienna. She's able to get Sienna reeling, including a knee to the face. After some chaos in the ring, Sienna goes for her AK 47 but Brandi reverses it into her finish for the win.

Brandi and Madison win


We go to the hardy estate and Matt is just hitting the delete button on the computer and having a lolli pop because there was so much left over from Halloween. He doesn't believe it when Reby tells him they have all the candy because he only gave out green beans on Halloween.

She tells him that Jeff is fighting the DCC alone. He says that may help teach Jeff that violence is not the answer. When he then goes to unsubscribe to the Young Bucks newsletter (because he doesn't even like rock music) his scribe appears. But when Reby comes back in, he's gone. She tells her husband that she has some videos to show him that may help clear things up. Oh God, I hope she shows him the Final Deletion.


Mike Bennett (w/Maria) vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Trevor Lee vs. EC3 to become #1 contender

EC3 goes after Lashley immediately but then he finds all three of his opponents working him over.They toss him out of the ring and all try for pinfalls on each other.

Lashley delivers shoulderblocks into both men in the corner and starts going to work. He suplexes Bennett and then Gorilla Presses Lee onto EC3 outside.

TNA returns from break and Trevor Lee and Mike Bennett seem to have a brief alliance. However, EC3 is able to fight them off. Bennett and Lee get Lashley out of the ring and are able to finally successfully work against EC3. Bennett then goes outside to work on Lashley and Lee tries a cover on EC3, unsuccessfully.

Bennett comes back in and he and Lee shake hands and continue to work on Carter. However, neither will let the other pin him. Each time that happens, more bickering ensues.

Finally, Bennett and Lee come to blows and they both hit a clothesline and all men are down.

Carter is up and doles out clotheslines to both Bennett and Lee. Lashley tries to get into the ring but EC3 hits him with a punch keeping him outside. Ethan then hits flapjacks on both Lee and Bennett. He sets up a double One Percenter but the shove him off into a Lashley spear.

The match breaks down but it's Lee who has control. Then it's Bennett who has control with spine busters... until he gets one from Lashley. The match then breaks down with everyone nailing each other.

Back in the ring, EC3 finds himself alone with Trevor Lee and hits his sleeper submission to tap out Lee.

EC3 wins via submission to become #1 contender


Back in Cameron, she shows Matt eh Final Deletion! He's appalled at himself ruining Jeff's lawn and everything he does! As he leaves it looks like he's going to have a premonition... but it's just a sneeze.

Eli Drake hosts the Fact of Life

He said that he was annoyed with the fact EC3 get another title opportunity. He calls out Carter, who comes on out still sweating from the match he just had.

Drake reminds him that he's choked in each of his title matches and suggests Carter put up his title shot against Drake next week. Carter calls him out for proposing the same thing EC3 did weeks ago. He reminds Drake that he declined as well. Much like Drake said weeks ago, he says the answer is no.

Eli offers the same thing that Carter did... if EC3 accepts and Drake fails, he won't challenge for the title for a year. Carter says that he wants Drake in the title seen because he's only better when people like Drake are chasing him. That's what will make this the best roster in wrestling.

Carter says that now that Drake has tasted defeat, now he's ready to be champion. But he still declines. He does say he wants to fight one on one so he has a new proposal. He'll give him the match but Drake has to put up his voice... if Drake loses he can't talk for the rest of 2016.

Drake accepts!


Backstage, Jade is filming a Pop TV promo until Crazzy Steve and Abyss. When she says she's not surprised Rosemary sent those two, they tell her to go find her.

Mahabali Shera vs. Basile Baraka

Baraka aggressively works over Shera much of the match. Shera hits a big punch but Basile lands a crossbody to stay in control.

Shera finally catches Baraka, who is coming off the second rope, and hits a running powerslam. Shera ends up submitting Baraka with the Camel Clutch.

Shera def. Baraks via submission

After the match, Baron Dax runs in and lays out Shera. He's then double teamed. Al Snow then comes out celebrating the double team but then attacks the Tribunal. He and Shera do a Mega Powers handshake at the end.


Jade finds Rosemary up in the rafters. After Rosemary does her normal cryptic speaking, Jade tells her it'll be the two of them against each other for the KOs title. Rosemary suggests it be in a steel cage.

DCC vs. Jeff Hardy & Eddie Edwards

Jeff is dressed more like Brother Nero, though doesn't have the face paint.

Before the match even begins, Jeff is able to hit a Twist of Fate on Bram. While the DCC is regrouping outside, Eddie delivers a suicide dive and Jeff a dive from the top turnbuckle.

Given the numbers, the DCC soon take control. Storm uses a chair on Hardy and Edwards gets tossed around by Kingston. The faces are in peril as TNA goes to commercial.

The show comes back and the DCC are still in control. Storm is working over Hardy outside while Kingston is working on Edwards in the ring. Bram runs in and goes for the cover and gets a nearfall. So I guess the match has started.

Apparently this is a no DQ match as Storm introduces a couple chairs in the ring. Those are eventually set up and Kingston tries to suplex Edwards on two open chairs but Edwards reverses it and Kingston takes the bump which is nasty looking.

Jeff runs in and unleashes some havoc until he goes face first into a chair and Storm hits Eye of the Storm for a very close nearfall.

Meanwhile, Bram hits a Brighter Side of Suffering DDT onto Edwards through a table outside. Inside the ring Jeff hits a Twist of Fate on Storm but when he tries another, Storm hits the last call for the 1-2-3.

DCC wins
