WHAT HAPPENED, THIS WEEK, @ (TNA) IMPACT WRESTLING

Posted November 13th, 2014 by jshannon

The Wolves were a team divided, thanks to James Storm. They were set to defend against The Hardys but would that match even happen? Plus, Lashley was ready to destroy Austin Aries. Numerous surprises were waiting for the fans, this week…

The show opened with a look at Bobby Roode vs MVP, from last week. Roode took out MVP during the World Title Match. Lashley then Speared Roode out of his boots.

In the back, Kenny King ran into Lashley. Lashley wanted to know where MVP was. When King didn’t know, Lashley threw a trash can against the wall.

The Revolution emerged from the back. James Storm, Great Sanada and Manik strolled down to the ring. Storm said he gave Davey Richards one week to decide if he was going to join the Revolution. Time was up and Storm demanded an answer. Davey and Eddie came out together. Davey kept looking down as Eddie was ready to get up in Storm’s face. Davey snatched the microphone out of Eddie’s hand. He told Eddie that he could make his own decisions. Davey told Storm that he was out of his freaking mind and he told Storm that he would not join The Revolution. Storm unleashed Sanada and Manik on Eddie as he used his bull rope to tie up Davey. Storm went out and got a steel chair. Storm sent the chair into the recently healed leg. Davey clutched his knee in agony. Storm came back out with a briefcase. Storm drove the case into Davey’s bad leg. Manik also stomped the leg. The briefcase was Storm’s Feast or Fired Briefcase that he won months back. Storm cashed in…

James Storm and ? vs The Wolves

Storm thought it would be an instant pin but Eddie tagged out. Eye of the Storm on Eddie. Storm grabbed the microphone and cackled. Suddenly, Abyss’ music hit. Storm introduced him as the newest member of The Revolution. Abyss took the tag and nailed the Chokeslam. Black Hole Slam to Eddie. Storm hugged The Monster and tagged back in. Storm took the easy pin. 1-2-3.
