411's IMPACT WRESTLING REPORT 4.24.14
Match times are not exact.
Kurt Angle prepares backstage for his match tonight. Spud is trying to get out of the match, and if he does, he will go after EC3.
Highlights of Eric Young winning the title two weeks ago and his promo and title defense from last week.
Magnus makes his way to the ring. He has a weapon with him, the metal part of the turnbuckle. He is about to introduce him self as our champion, but has to stop himself from doing so. He doesn't look at it as losing the title or losing to EY, he sees it this way; he was let down. Good help these days is hard to find, right Abyss? He wants Abyss to come out to the ring so he can talk to him face to face.
Abyss now makes his way out to the ring. Magnus says Abyss is 6'8 and 350 pounds of idiot. He then says Abyss makes him sick, and he now realizes why everyone in Abyss' life abandoned him, because he is a disappointment. He asked Abyss to do one thing, make sure the title stayed with him. Abyss says that MVP threatened to fire anyone that got involved, but Magnus says that Abyss works for him and not TNA. Well not any longer, because Magnus says Abyss' services are no longer needed and future endeavors him. Abyss says that this was never about the money or financial gain; it was about him having a sense of belonging. He trusted Magnus, Magnus said they were friends. But now, now Abyss realizes that all Magnus is, is a self centered, arrogant jackass. He is the monster Abyss, he hurts people and he destroys lives and ends careers. And since he is no longer Magnus' employee, he starts with Magnus. Magnus says Abyss has no contract, so if he touches him he will have him arrested for assault.
This leads to MVP making his way out to the stage. MVP says he doesn't like this, and wants Magnus to put down the weapon. He makes his way to the ring and says Abyss is not one of his favorite people, however, he understands in life people deserve second chances. So he knows where Abyss is at, he needs to belong, and since he has just been fired, MVP wants to give him a second chance and have a full time spot on the TNA roster. MVP will give him that spot if he wins his match tonight. Against Magnus. Magnus says he cannot do that, MVP disagrees and skips to the back. Abyss says he never liked Magnus, and tonight he will kick his ass.
Spud is preparing backstage and EC3 arrives. EC3 says no speech tonight, what he saw last week was real and alive. He saw the real Kurt Angle. And he realized that only one man can defeat Angle, and that is himself. Tonight, Spud is operation Human Shield. He has asked a lot from Spud, but tonight, he needs him to be a gazelle.
Kurt Angle vs. Rockstar Spud w/Ethan Carter III
Angle is wearing a big knee brace, due to his recent injury and surgery. Spud begs off right away as Carter teases getting into the ring. Spud tries a single leg, fails and gets tossed across the ring. Carter distracts again, but Spud fails to take advantage as Angle hits a tilt a whirl back breaker. Spud tries to escape, Angle chases him and Carter grabs his leg and that allows Spud to work him over with rights and a dropkick off the ropes. That got a cover for 2. Spud up top, Angle runs up and gets an overhead suplex off the ropes. Angle takes out Carter, ankle lock on Spud, that's all.

Madison Rayne makes her way to the ring. Rayne calls out the Beautiful People for their makeover. They make their way out to the ring, and Love says she looks run down and tired in the face. Is her baby keeping her up all night? Love says Rayne may want to be a role model to her daughter, but she should be thankful for the invitation to have a makeover tonight. Rayne says that they are right; she forgives them. She is so sorry… sorry that she's about to do this and she attacks them both. The numbers game gets to her, and they beat down Rayne. Love says how dare she disrespect them. Rayne was a no one before the beautiful People took her in. But that all changes right now. Brittany then hits the ring and tries to help Rayne, but they beat her down and toss her to the floor. In yo face by Sky to Rayne, and they grab the make up bag. They have the old paper bag, this one with Love's face on it. They place it on Rayne and say how beautiful she looks.
