Jeff Hardy has something to say

Welcome everyone to Wednesday Impact as the Hardys are on their way out. On Twitter Jeff stated “I will be on Impact tonight and I am not leaving until my brother gets what he deserves – one more shot at the World Titleā€¦ #Matt4Champ”

The fans in Orlando are happy to see them, a “Hardy” Chant breaking out early. Jeff starts off by apologizing for breaking his leg. He tells Matt they’ve always been talked down to and not given a chance, but they believed and their creatures have to. They made it this far and they are right here. They’ve won titles, international gold and that brings him to EC3. Matt needs one more chance to be World Heavyweight Champion.

Matt: That Matt for Champ, that is music to my ears, thank you.

Hardy has been here for a year and still can’t believe the support. To Reby Sky, his new son Maxwell, to each and every fan of Impact Wrestling. He was this close to beating EC3. He feels that he is the man to carry Impact into the future. Carter refuses but Matt will not let it die. Uno Mas, one more time and he will become the


Tyrus and Carter make their way out, they do not look amused.

EC3: In 1999, when I was just a little 3, I was there for a match that changed my life. And it involved ladders, and it was with you, the Hardys. So to share the ring with two legends, I could not be more


Ethan talks about how the groveler and gimp have already lost. He went into God Mode, and stood upon Mount Olympus to stare down these mortals. The fans are chanting for Hardy but Carter doesn’t care. Ethan and Tyrus make their way out as Jeff stops him and calls him a grade A Jackass.

Carter says he’s not a Jackass, he’s the Hood Ornament of the Company. Top Guy Stuff.

“But what are you Jeff? A Daredevil who can’t stick a landing. So Jeff, unless the next time you want to be in the hospital not for a broken leg, but a broken face?”

Hardy threatens to chairshot them both. Ethan says simmer. Carter has an idea. He will give the man a title shot right now. The fans chant “Matt for Champ” if Matt wins he gets the title.

Ethan: Butttbutbutbut! If I win, Jeff, you must become my personal, assistant. Cleanin my cars, doin my grocery shopping, spottin my squat? No more collectin my Aunt’s money for sittin home and doing nothing!

Carter is all kinds of smug as Jeff and Matt have a new stipulation to talk about. How much faith in his brother does he really have?

Backstage we go to Josh Matthews and Pope Daddy! as they run down the stip thrown out by Carter, and his Aunt’s decision to hand over control of Impact to Jeff Jarrett. Tonight out main event, but we will begin with Eric Young vs Chris Melendez. Let’s hear some exclusive comments from Young on this match where Melendez had to put his prosthetic leg on the line to get this final match.

The Jarretts arrive and Karen looks great as always, Jeff promises something wonderful tonight.

Postmatch, Young demands the leg. Chris is dejected as the fans are booing.


Eric tells them to shut up and says Chris said he was a man of his word. EY demands the leg. Chris removes it, and Eric backs off so Melendez has to hop it towards EY, adding insult to injury. Eric raises it overhead and laughs, the fans in Orlando are booing like crazy.

Eric: Big Game Hunter Eric Young! This one’s going on the mantle buddy! Yeah!

We look at the TNA Knockouts bikini video I posted earlier because I’m a nice person.

Jeff Hardy has something Else to say

Jeff talks trash about Ethan Carter saying there isn’t anything that matters to this deal because Matt Hardy isn’t going to lose. Hardy doesn’t give a shit and tells the fans to chant “Matt 4 Champ!” The Hardys are all kinds of confident and he is betting on his brother.

We look at the history of Jeff Jarrett’s return to TNA. His surprise debut, his winning of the KOTM Title belt, then his TNA Hall of Fame Induction. The attacks on Bully Ray, which makes Jeff Jarrett the new man in charge of Impact, and his booking of the KOTM match that saw PJ Black win the gold. Jarrett asks Dixie for full control of Impact and we will find out her answer later on tonight.

Let’s hear comments from another one of the participants in tonight’s match, a Fourway Match to the King of the Mountain in Lashley!

The announcers say that the cover girl of the 2016 for the TNA Knockouts Calendar is Gail, Brooke AND Velvet Sky! Well that’s pretty cool.

Backstage the Jarretts discuss their immediate future as we see Dixie Carter on her way to the ring.

We show how the Hardys accepted Ethan’s stipulation and Matt will challenge Ethan for the title. If he loses, Jeff becomes Carter’s assistant.

Ethan Carter is all happies that Matt accepted the match. He tells Matt to get ready because Fair and Square, when he beats him he wants no qualms. Jeff, welcome to Team EC3. His tailor Angelo has a nice suit for him.

Will Dixie allow Jeff Jarrett full control of Impact?

The owner of TNA makes her entrance. Dixie Carter gets a cheer from the fans and takes the mic. Dixie Carter says when leadership works like a team when they’re on top. The best times in TNA were when two people were standing together. Carter was shocked that Jarrett came back to the federation, but she was the happiest when it did. She invites Jeff to the ring.

“My World” kicks up over the PA System as Jeff Jarrett makes his way to the ring and enters to hug his partner. Dixie Carter and Jarrett both have mics and the fans are cheering Jeff on.

Jarrett appreciates the intro and says this was all out of the blue. But he told a lot of people that he didn’t expect it, but he’s glad to be invited back. He founded TNA, but it was the days and years, the hard work and times that made it special. A place he called special for ten years. Thank you Impact Zone. With Ray on his way out, Jarrett knew Dixie needed help, and is glad she realized that. This is really special, with GFW and TNA working together is a win for both leagues and the wrestling fan.

Jarrett says they have momentum but he believes it needs to keep growing. Dixie agrees she owes a decision and thanks Jeff for taking care of Impact and she has always said, when they work together, they are unstoppable. So, this show it needs a leader and she has talked with her team


Drew comes out and asks to tell the fans he just found out, right now, as he heads to the ring and they go to a hard break.

In the ring Drew is saying he wouldn’t have interrupted unless he had to. On the plus side the partnership has been excited, competition is healthy. Jeff Jarrett’s back! He said he respects Jarrett and the man is the father of TNA. But there has been a dark cloud hanging over the Impact Zone. Carter asks him what is going on. There were a lot of suspects in the recent attacks. But 20 minutes ago he found out what happened. Logically someone must have seen something. And then, he found something in the security footage. The getway car, two attacks, two weeks apart, two separate rental cars. One name on both cars. Jeff Jarrett.

Jarrett is all likes, “Really?” Drew says he’s an idiot. Everything to gain! Ray gone, Drew out of the picture, one of the GFW guys win the KOTM Championship. Jeff tells him off and swears on his life and that of his family’s. Drew tells him if he says he lies to him he’ll drop him where he stands. If it wasn’t Jeff who was it?

Galloway is in Jeff’s face and Karen yells she did it from the stage. She says she did it for GFW. Jeff yells at her he didn’t ask her to do it. Karen tells him he started the company, and one spark can start an inferno. Jeff Jarrett is shocked and he makes his decision, by kicking Drew Galloway in the balls!

Dixie escapes the ring as Jarrett threatens her on the mic, and the GFW rush down to attack Drew! The TNA locker room try to make the save but Global Force attacks and wipes the mat with them. GFW celebrates to end the show as Jeff and company show off for the fans. Thanks everyone for joining me tonight, this has been Aaron Scott saying see you next time from 411Mania’s TNA Impact Report!
