Horseshit! The match was actually not bad, but the Dusty finish by Dusty ruined it.

ATTENTION! There will now be MORE than 20 participants in the Gauntlet for the X-Division title.

Highlights of Goldi’s contract acquiring binge.

Shane Douglas with Goldi. Siaki is giving her a foot massage and Sharky is her footstool. Goldi smells something bad, and it was D RAY in the bathroom! HA! She has no clue who Desire’s mystery man is, and she doesn’t care. Abyss comes in, and she yells at him for being late. She says he disgusts her, and he doesn’t fit in. She makes him stand facing the wall.

Match #2 “The Baby Bear” Alex Shelley w/Goldi vs. ??? w/Desire (Contract vs. Cash)

Desire comes out and the mystery man is…Ekmo (from the 3 Minute Warning.)

Abyss is out, and WAFFLES EKMO 2 times with a chair, followed by a black hole slam and Shelley covers for the win @ 5:10.

Abyss gets the money for Goldi, and she grabs it back and is pissed.

Bad match, and it wasn’t all Ekmo’s fault.

Sabu drags out Raven with a DOG COLLAR! Chair shots by Sabu! He lays like 4 chairs on Raven…Sabu up to the 2nd rope, LEG DROP! Sabu hangs Raven over the ropes!

They try to separate them as Raven is busted open again.

Highlights of Jeff Hardy and Jeff Jarrett.

Mike Tenay in the ring, and he has an announcement. He says the Championship committee has set the date for Hardy vs. JJ; September the 8th @ the Asylum. Here comes Monty Brown. He says Tenay has the balls to come into his ring and announce a match without him. Brown wants Russo out here, and he wants to know when he gets the winner and they get the POOOOOOOUUUUUUNCE! Killings is out now. He says Brown runs his mouth too much, and he has to earn his spot. Killings says he has to go through him. BRAWL TIME! They are quickly separated, but they get away and brawl some more. Good pull apart brawl, the crowd liked it. Dusty is out. Dusty says next week, they will face!

Highlights of David Young and Glen Gilbertti.

Shane Douglas with Gilbertti and Swinger. Gilbertti is done with the stupid outfit finally, but Swinger is still wearing his, cause he likes it. Gilbertti says he is there to fight, and he will go Brooklyn on Young. Big Vito is out, and says Gilbertti is an embarrassment. He says he better get it done tonight, because he has plans.

The trainers come to check on Daniels.

Great match to kick off the best of 3 series. They didn’t give too much away, and with the “injury” to Daniels, one has to wonder if Lo Ki will return.

Shane Douglas with Raven. He says Sonjay put a challenge to Raven for a hangman’s horror match vs. Sabu. Raven ran Vampiro out of TNA in that match. Raven runs down the Sheik, and says he has always known that he is better than Sabu, and that Sabu is just all hype created by Paul Heyman. He says next week, he ends Sabu’s career. Hang man’s horror, welcome to the Terror Dome…Quote the Raven…

We have the coming soon video, everyone thinks it is D lo, but it is me.

West and Tenay shill the web site and next week. JJ will be on Impact, as well as Jeff Hardy. Next week: 3LK vs. The Naturals for the tag titles, AMW vs. XXX, Monty Brown vs. Killings and Sabu vs. Raven in a hang man’s horror match for the main event.
