Welcome to Part Two of Destination X. Last Week’s episode was epic. This week, one of the most shocking moments in TNA history happened. Wait and see…

Tonight’s show had a Viewer Discretion advisory.

Tommy Dreamer, Devon and Bully Ray talked about how brutal their 8-man war was going to get. Who would be their fourth partner? Bully swore he would get EC3’s blood on him and Dixie would go through a table. #iTHAPPENS was the end of a promotional video’s message.

Abyss vs Bram
Monster’s Ball Match

There were so many toys around ringside. The arena was bathed in crimson light. TNA quickly looked back to when Bram used Janice to attack and defeat Abyss. Magnus came out with his partner. Bram grabbed a kendo stick but didn’t get to use it. Abyss blocked a Whip but took a boot to the face. Bram ended up on the floor. Abyss came out to get his foe. Bram and Abyss traded vicious pops. Bram blocked his face being sent to ring steps and put Abyss’ there instead. Abyss sent Bram to the steps. Abyss threw tons of Toys into the ring. He found a cheese grater. The fans cried out for blood. Bram bashed Abyss’ head with a trash can, multiple times. The fans screamed that this was awesome. Bram found the Barbed Wire Board. He placed it in one of the six corners.

Both men tried to Whip the other into the board but didn’t get it done. Low Kick by Bram. Bram went under and found his turnbuckle wrench. Abyss hid the Cheese grater and drove it into the crotch and pulled. Damn! Goozle but Bram Elbowed free. Abyss reversed a Whip. Abyss sent Bram into a chair that had been wedged in, a few moments earlier. Abyss went and got his “Girl”, Janice. Bram ducked the shot. Janice got stuck in the turnbuckle. Abyss went a chair into Bram’s face. Abyss ripped open his elbow but still kept going. Abyss got his black bag o’ doom. He poured out the dozens of thumbtacks. Bram cracked Abyss in the face with a kendo stick. Goozle but Bram kicked the knee. Bram yanked Janice free. Bram went to use Janice but never got to. Bram was dropped on the tacks. Holy Crap!

Now I see why they gave the Parental Advisory.

Magnus grabbed Janice but got punched. Bram Speared Abyss into the Barbed Wire Board. The board was stuck in Abyss’ back. Bram got Janice and blasted Abyss in the ribs. 1-2-3.

Your Winner: Bram
Impact Scorecard: 3.0

Bram took off with Janice. This won’t be the last time these two go to war.

Samoa Joe talked about having No Limits when he returned to the X-Division. Joe was cut off by the arrival of Low Ki. Low Ki brought up the sheer violence of their past wars. Low Ki warned Joe that both he (Joe) and Sanada were in his way. Joe responded that Low Ki was never able to prepare for Joe. Joe was certain he would be the next X-Division champ.

JB talked with Team EC3. Ethan talked about all the great stars around him; Rycklon, Snitsky and Rhino. Snitsky did his old “It’s not my fault” thing. Rhino started to chant “Gore!”. Ethan promised that Dixie would never go through a table.

Taz said Rycklon and Snitsky weren’t ECW, as far as he was concerned.

Bobby Lashley came out with some gorgeous girls. MVP and Kenny King were also there. TNA looked back at how Aries failed to beat Lashley, last week. MVP introduced Kenny King and Lashley. MVP said the girls were from New York. MVP discussed how he felt like a babysitter, when he was in charge. MVP said he had all the power without any of the headaches, since “He” controlled the title that Lashley holds. The fans started a “Boring” chant. MVP ran down all the men that Lashley has defeated. MVP said there was no one left to face Lashley.

Bobby Roode came out to correct MVP’s error in assessing the talent situation. Bobby admitted that MVP was saying some truths. Bobby acknowledged that Lashley was a Destroyer who had beaten some of the best. Bobby called Lashley one of the most dominant champs of all time. Bobby told MVP to shut his mouth. He was there to chat with Lashley. Bobby reminded the group in the ring that he was the long-reigning champ in TNA’s 12-year history. Bobby knew what it takes to be a champion. Bobby accused MVP of taking him out of the title picture. MVP wanted the belt for himself but had to switch gears when he blew out his knee. Bobby talked about kicking MVP’s and Kenny King’s *sses. Bobby got up in Lashley’s face and made it clear that he hasn’t beaten him. Bobby Roode challenged Lashley to a World Title Match.

King jumped Roode and MVP joined in the beat down. Lashley just stood back. Eric Young rushed down along with Austin Aries. MVP said they were not dressed for a fight. They started to leave, quickly.

Gunner and Sam Shaw were talking when Ken Anderson came up. Ken didn’t trust Sam for their six-man battle, coming up. Gunner asked Ken to give Shaw a chance.

Bully was asked for a hint as to who the fourth man was for their team. Bully refused to say anything except it was a guy who had their backs since day one.

I’m thinking Brother Runt (Spike Dudley) might be coming to the party. Maybe they are bringing in Sabu or Taz might be returning to action. Just have to wait to find out.

Ethan Carter III was the first person to enter the fight. Ethan came out with Sting’s old black bat. Team EC3 has the man up advantage. Dixie watched this with King Mo.

Ethan was asked about what happened. Ethan said his partners failed him. Ethan said Rycklon, Snitsky and Rhino were set to protect Dixie Carter. If they couldn’t get it done, King Mo would be there as backup.

A promotional video ran for Bound For Glory. This year, it’s coming to Japan.

The Beautiful People made their way out to the ring. I saw both Sky and Love, in New Orleans, a few months back. Let me tell you, the name Beautiful People is so appropriate. Love admitted she took out the Gail Kim vs Taryn Terrell match so she could be the center of attention. Love demanded to get her title match…right now.

Dixie ordered King Mo to take out Bully Ray. He agreed to knock out the Hardcore Legend and soon-to-be Hall of Famer.

Time to lock in the seat belts and put your tables in their upright positions. The last segment began with a recap of when Bully Ray made the promise to put Dixie through a table. Dixie has helped put Bully ray through several tables in recent months.

Dixie made her way out to the ring. Rycklon, Snitsky, Ethan, Spud and Rhino joined Dixie in the ring. Dixie was in no mood for the boos from the NYC fans. Dixie said Rycklon and Snitsky were worthless. She fired both Rycklon and Snitsky. Seriously? She called them useless has-beens. She told all the fans to get out of her building. She even let loose with a few profanities. The Originals came out with Dixie’s table.

King Mo took the center spot to protect Dixie. She ordered Mo to take out Bully. Bully took the stick and reminded everyone that he was going to put the most hated woman in the history of wrestling through a table. Tommy said Dixie was all what was wrong with the business. Mo took out Tommy but Bully clocked Mo. Spud was also dropped, along with Ethan. Team 3D set up for the ending. Spud helped pull Dixie out to the floor. Spud screamed that it was not going to happen. The bulk of the locker room came out to force Dixie back in. Spud fainted dead away. Tommy picked up Dixie and rolled her into the ring. The roster surrounded the ring. Devon put Dixie up and then Bully Powerbombed her through the table! She so landed badly on that one. Her head and shoulders completely missed the table and bounced off the mat. Taz screamed that Dixie was done! Mike Tenay and Taz were ecstatic that the Queen got crowned…hardcore style! The fans were going absolutely ballistic. I do hope that she is okay, since she took such a bad bump.
