PREVIOUSLY ON IMPACT WRESTLING: Hulk Hogan indefinitely suspends Bully Ray, Hogan walks Brooke Hogan down the aisle for her wedding to Ray before it ends in an Aces and 8's attack, Taz reveals why he joined the biker gang, and TNA World Champion Jeff Hardy is taken out at the end of last week's show.

-----

We are live to tape from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Todd Keneley welcomes the home audience while Mike Tenay hypes the Angle/Anderson main event plus hype for Dixie Carter's big announcement.

Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) make their way out to the ring in kilts and blue facepaint a la Braveheart. Kazarian tells Manchester not to fear, because Bad Influence is here for their viewing pleasure. A "You suck!" chant quickly breaks out. Kazarian says it's "Throwback Thursday" and this week they're throwing it back all the way to the 13th century. Kazarian then calls the Scots the true warriors of England, which gets the cheap heat from the Manchester ground. Kazarian then introduces his partner and best friend Daniels.

Daniels says he hears the crowd booing and understands they were disappointed that Jeff Hardy is still champion. Daniels blames his loss last week on Hardy's "toxic" facepaint and says Kazarian saved his life. Daniels says that wasn't his last chance to be champion and when he's finally king of TNA he'll bring the World Title to "this rotten country". Daniels says there's nothing easier than beating the English, which gets more cheap heat. Daniels gives the England crowd permission to worship them.

Their spiel is interrupted by the returning Magnus who comes out mic in hand to defend his home country. Magnus soaks in the cheers of the U.K. crowd. His music cuts off and a "Magnus!" chant reigns from the Manchester crowd. Magnus says his theory on why Daniels isn't World Champion is because Hardy beat him like he owed him money then insults Daniels' choice of verbage. Magnus calls Bad Influence a couple of disrespectful muppets in need of a good slap. Magnus says if they want to fight an Englishman, they can fight him. Daniels shoves Magnus and a 2 on 1 attack begins. Magnus fights back and knocks Daniels and Kazarian to the floor.

Magnus gets back on the mic and says it's an honor and privilege to be here to entertain the fans. Magnus says that very privilege was taken from him by The Aces and 8's, and calls out Aces and 8's member Devon for Open Fight Night. The Aces and 8's music hits and out comes Devon through the crowd as we go to commercial.

STORYLINE RECAP: Bully Ray/Brooke Hogan/Hulk Hogan

-----

Will Hulk Hogan Reinstate Bully Ray?

Bully Ray makes his way out to the ring alongside Brooke Hogan as Taz once again reiterates that he's "teflon". The music cuts and a "Bully" chant greets the happy couple. Ray says it's been a rough couple of weeks and says he loves Brooke very much, which is what got him suspended. Ray says he and Hulk have a common enemy in The Aces and 8's and he should lift his suspension. Ray says no one has been able to convince Hulk, but one man can: Sting. Ray leads a "Sting!" chant with the crowd before The Icon's music hits. Out he comes wearing one of his Sgt. Pepper robes.

Sting gets on the mic and says it's great to be back in the United Kingdom. Sting says he doesn't have the stroke to get The Hulkster out to the ring and tells the Manchester crowd to chant the GM's name. The Manchester crowd happily oblige to almost thunderous levels. "Not Quite the nWo Theme" hits and finally out comes Hulk Hogan. Ray holds the ropes open for Hogan and he makes his way into the ring. Hogan and Brooke embrace (not that way, pervs) and nods at Sting. The "Hogan!" chants continue as the music cuts out.

Sting says The Aces and 8's have created a warzone in TNA and asks Hogan to make things right with Ray right here and right now. Hogan says at the end of the day he always does the right thing, citing walking Brooke down the aisle two weeks ago as an example. Hogan says he always does the right thing by his family and formally reinstates Ray. Ray is happy as hell and embraces Brooke. Hogan then makes a match for next week: two members of The Aces and 8's against Ray and Sting...in a tables match! Hogan's music hits and he and Ray finally shake hands.
