*****


Taz is outside the arena talking to Atlas Security. They inform Taz that Hulk Hogan has banned him from the building this week. Taz freaks out and says they're going to be working at a pizzeria in Brooklyn because he's going to make a call. Taz yells "YOU'RE DONE!" and walk off as Atlas Security tries to apologize.

-----

PREVIOUSLY ON IMPACT WRESTLING...: Bully Ray tries to get his World Title back through litigious means but Hulk Hogan instead signs Sabin/Ray in a Cage for "HardCORE Justice".

-----

Mike Tenay welcomes the home audience and hypes the show as we pan the Wichita Falls crowd. The camera cuts to the announce table where Tenay is joined by Jeremy Borash since Taz has been banned from the arena. Borash hypes the Styles/Aries main event then Tenay switches gears to the ominous August 1st Warning videos that have been flooding the YouTube channel for the past week. Borash segues into the final tape from earlier this afternoon. The mystery man says his arrival will shock everyone and they have been warned.

-----

Austin Aries makes his way out to the arena to open the show proper. Aries soaks in the positive crowd response before grabbing a mic. Aries asks if they can hear him now and an "Austin Aries!" chant breaks out. Aries says there are a lot of things going on in IMPACT Wrestling and they're all focused on the World Heavyweight Championship and the Bound For Glory Series. Aries publicly congratulates new World Champ Chris Sabin, but he also warns him that he's now the hunted. Aries tells Sabin he's looking at the man who will win the BFG Series and become the next champion. Aries says everyone is in for a big treat as he takes on AJ Styles in the main event. Aries says this is a match everyone has been dreaming about since he returned to TNA; not just the people at home and in the arena but everyone who works for TNA. Aries phrases the match as so: AJ Styles, the man who put TNA on his back for a decade Vs. Austin Aries, the man who will put TNA on his back for the next decade. Aries says if there is anyone who has any doubts about that he will erase them tonight.

Aries' rant is interrupted by his former tag team partner Bobby Roode. Tenay and Borash recap Roode's mental breakdown from a few weeks back as he makes his way to the ring. Roode grabs a mic and says he's been living a nightmare since Aries beat him for the World Title last year at Destination X and since then everyone has forgotten what he's capable of doing inside of the ring. Roode says he was the longest-reigning and most dominant World Champion in TNA history and became the leader of the "selfish generation". Roode then follows up by saying he is the "IT Factor of Professional Wrestling" and starting tonight the game is going to change because he's going back to what brought him to the dance the first time. Roode says he's going to do the things that made him champ the first time around; from here on out all he cares about is regaining the World Championship and tonight he will prove once again that it "pays to be Roode".

Aries responds by saying he hopes Roode makes it to the finals of the BFG Series so he can beat him once again. Aries wishes him luck and walks off. The music of Roode's opponent tonight, Hernandez, kicks up and out comes "Super Mex". Hernandez gives his bandana to someone at ringside and Roode attacks him on the ramp. Roode continues the attack as Tenay announces that the match will happen next.

Match #1: Hernandez Vs. Bobby Roode in a BFG Series Match

We join the match in progress, Roode in control and delivering a series of chops. Roode slams Hernandez into the corner then whips him into the ropes, delivering a punishing back elbow to the jaw.

Hernandez heads up the ramp and revs up the crowd. Hernandez gets a running head start and connects with AIR MEXICO.

This momentarily distracts him and Roode connects with a low-blow on Hernandez followed by a roll-up (with a handful of tights) for the 1...2...kickout.

Roode freaks out and grabs a chair from ringside. He throws two into the ring then hits another on the ring steps before rolling it in. The ref tries to toss the chairs out, distracting the ref long enough for Roode to crack Hernandez int he head with a beer bottle. Roode covers as the ref gets back into the game for the 1...2...3!

She understands and leaves him to deal with Joseph Park. Young says he's got the answer to Park's freakouts and hands him a bag. Park asks what it is and Young tells him not to worry.

-----

Chris Sabin catches up backstage with Manik. Sabin congratulates him on winning the X-Division Title. Manik says he accomplished nothing in his 15 years as TJ Perkins so Manik is his rebirth, bringing him the X-Division title. Sabin says they're not the biggest or strongest, but they have the most heart and that's why Sabin wanted to face him first tonight. Sabin tells Manik to bring his best tonight because he will be doing the same. Manik says he'll see him out there and Sabin walks off.

-----

Match #3: *TNA World Champion* Chris Sabin Vs. *TNA X-Division Champion* Manik in a Non-Title Champion Vs. Champion Match

Sabin grabs a wristlock and brings Manik to one knee. Manik rolls through but gets taken back to the mat. Manik kips up, cartwheels, and reverses into a wristlock of his own. Sabin does the same, reapplies the wristlock, and transitions into a hammerlock. Manik tries to escape but Sabin brings him to the mat and puts his shoulders down for a 2-count. Manik gets to his feet and takes Sabin down with a monkey flip. Sabin then hits a monkey flip of his own, knuckles still locked, and covers for 2. Manik tries for a roll-up but Sabin rolls through. Manik and Sabin dodge one another's kicks and Sabin cartwheels out of a headscissors takedown. Both men retreat to their corners in a good ol' fashioned standoff as we head to commercial.

-Commercial Break-

We go outside to another shot of the white stretch hummer (shown in the daytime, but it's dark outside right now in TX). Taz interrupts and says he's going to expose August 1 to the world out of anger that he's stuck outside. Taz opens the hummer and laughs. Taz is not impressed and the camera goes in to reveal...a laptop playing an August 1st Warning video. Okay.

Bad Influence are hanging out backstage when they're accosted by the mysterious interview. Christopher Daniels says TNA has been trying to plant seeds of dissent between them for too long. Frankie Kazarian calls their match against one another next week ludicrous. Daniels says it puts them in a bad position because he's undefeated and Kazarian hasn't won yet. Kazarian stops him and says not to be that guy with him. Daniels says he won't give him the points and Kazarian says he'll take them before spilling Daniels' appletini on the ground and walking off.

The Main Event Mafia are shown heading to the ring. Their offer is next.

-----

-Commercial Break-

-----

The Main Event Mafia's "Offer" to The Aces & Eights

The Main Event Mafia make their way out for the closing angle (and about three minutes to do it if they don't get the overrun). Sting says they are halfway to finishing their goals and will get the fight they want by giving them an offer they can't refuse. Kurt Angle grabs the mic but out come Mr. Anderson and The Aces & Eights before he can say anything. Everyone is there except Bully Ray because he has other things to do. Anderson says if the MEM want to fight dirty, they can do it and they aren't backing down. Angle says there are going to be serious consequences and proposes a 5-on-5 match between the two groups at HardCORE Justice with the stipulation that whatever wrestler gets pinned in the match has to leave TNA for good. Samoa Joe says this isn't a negotiation and all of a sudden everyone starts brawling. I feel like they missed some exposition there. The Main Event Mafia clear the ring and Anderson agrees to the 5-on-5 match.

The lights go out and all of a sudden Tito Ortiz shows up on the ramp. Ortiz stands there, arms crossed, as both groups react surprisingly. Rampage Jackson doesn't look all that pleased. Awkward silence, awkward standing around, fade to black.
