411's IMPACT WRESTLING REPORT 6.19.14
Match times are not exact.
We get highlights from Slammiversary.
MVP makes his way to the ring to kick off the show. King and Lashley are with him. MVP says that he will cut to the chase tonight. He can't wrestle because he has a serious knee injury. What happened at Slammiversary was a tragedy. Dixie Carter went to the TNA board, cried and threw around her money and the board then reprimanded him after trying to make this company better. He was ordered to give a fair main event, but who was it fair too? The board's way didn't work and he will not be told how to run his show. So tonight, there are no board members around, so he will do things his way. This show is starring and directed by him and now he has business to deal with. Eric Young, get your ass out here so they can have a talk.
Young makes his way out and says that the only tragedy at Slammiversary was that he did not get to punch MVP. He's champion, on a roll and is a man that the fans can believe in. MVP says that Young and Aries fought together to keep Lashley from winning the title. Young says he has no patience. The fans are the ones calling the shots, and this is their world and they just live in it. He wants to come to the ring to kick some ass right now. MVP says Young would attack a man on crutches, and that he would whoop Young's ass if he wasn't hurt. King cuts off MVP and says that they want to see him win the title tonight. Young calls out Earl Hebner to ref the match. MVP and crew deliberate, and Young makes his way to the ring.

Young celebrates with Joe, Aries and the Wolves while MVP bitches up a storm.
MVP is still pissed off about King losing to Young and is slapping the bell ringer around. MVP claims that King kicked out and that they never should have sounded the bell to end the match. Young and crew return to ringside and we have a big brawl ringside. Security is out to separate both sides. They get them separated, and MVP has the mic. MVP says this is not a game, and that he runs the company. He is tired of this, so tonight, no one will get involved in their matches. He then says Young has another title match tonight, against a man that has defeated him twice, Bobby Lashley. And because he is a wrestling God, there will be no one in the building; the only ones left will be he, MVP and Lashley. There will also be a tag team title match tonight; the Wolves will defend the titles. Joe and Aries will be the challengers, along with another team to be named later. MVP is fucking livid here. He calls out Earl Hebner, and says he should slap some spit out of his mouth. But, he wouldn't slap a senior citizen. And if he did people would complain. MVP says Hebner had one job, to count three on Eric Young. He didn't and fires Hebner. He demands he take off his stripes, and now Brian Hebner is out. MVP says unless Brian wants to join his father, he needs to back off. They take Earl's stripes, and MVP talks trash and asks Earl if he wants to do something about it. Earl says people like MVP make him hate the business. Earl says he loves the fans, and MVP suggests they take a collection up for him.
EC3 and Dixie arrive, she says that what MVP is doing is everything she warned the board about. She praises EC3's victory at Slammiversary. EC3 says he is the Hardcore American Icon. Dixie then says she invited Tommy Dreamer to appear, if he is done hiding behind his keyboard.
Young says he will defend the belt all night long if he has too. He is pissed that MVP fired Earl Hebner, and then answers his phone. It was Kurt Angle, who was at the hotel. Young said he needed his help tonight.

Willow misses a corner splash, Aries tags in Joe and after taking Willow down, Joe hits a knee drop on Willow. Knees by Joe from the clinch, Willow with a jawbreaker and he tags in Abyss. Poetry in motion on Joe follows, but Joe manages to get a choke on Abyss and Aries with the last chancery on Willow. The Wolves in to break that up, they send Joe and Aries to the floor. They get back in as the Wolves go to the floor and Joe and Aries hit stereo dives onto the champs. They brawl on the floor as we see Tommy Dreamer arrive…

Dixie Carter and Spud make their way to the ring. Carter thanks the crowd for their warm welcome. She was going to celebrate an amazing Slammiversary and the win by EC3. No one thought he would win, but he beat Bully Ray and destroyed him. She says Bully is not here, instead playing on his TWITTAH MACHINE at home. Carter says she will never go through a table. When you're her, everyone wants to latch onto her star and make a buck off of her. That's what all of the haters do to her all the time as they try to tell her how to run her company. She doesn't even care about them. MVP found out who is really in charge, he is digging his own grave. But now she is here to talk about Tommy Dreamer. Crowd hates Carter here. He has been saying bad things about her recently, trying to get publicity from her. She has invited Dreamer here to talk with her, so she calls him out after mocking him a bit with Spud.

Crowd loves Dreamer. She mocks Dreamer's independent promotion, and says she invited him here to do the right thing, think about what he said and to apologize to her. Dreamer thanks her for inviting him here. He says they have always got along, but this is business. When he sees her business, he is left scratching his head. They had a business disagreement, and it blew up on social media. Social media has changed things, noting that they met on Twitter. Dreamer was even invited to her home, which led to him coming to TNA. Then they put together Hardcore Justice to give some ECW people closure. They even drank beer together because she did that for the wrestling fans. What happened to that woman who used to sit in the crowd with the fans, who thanked the fans? Dreamer left TNA; he watches at home and gets embarrassed by the crap he has to watch on TV. What Carter needs to realize is that her decisions affect the millions watching and the whole industry. Everyone wants the company to succeed, and she has talent that would die for her. Instead, she comes out here and it becomes the Dixie show. This is TNA Wrestling, not Dixie Wrestling. If she wants a reality show, go pitch it to Hollywood. She needs to give the best product each week on TV. He runs a small company called House of Hardcore, but he listens to the fans and they tell him how they love wrestling, how it helps them in every day life. Dreamer says there is good in Carter. He watched Dixie with her family at Slammiversary and they saw Kevin Von Erich put the claw on and she reacted like a fan. So for once in your life, do the right thing and give the fans what they want to watch. The choice is yours and the wrestling business is on your shoulders. Carter hugs Dreamer… and KNEES HIM IN THE BALLS as Spud cackles. EC3 attacks now and Carter tells them to get this has been, piece of trash out of her ring. Carter and Spud hug as EC3 sends Dreamer to the floor.

In the ring, Gail Kim welcomes back Taryn Terrell. Kim says that she has to be honest, when Terrell first arrived, Kim didn't like her. She didn't think she belonged or had what it took. But they had a last knockout standing match last year, and Kim had her eyes opened. They beat the hell out of each other, and Terrell was on a mission to prove that she belonged and she did just that. On that night, Terrell beat her, and she earned Kim's respect. That is why Kim wanted to welcome her back tonight, and they hug. Terrell thanks Kim and thanks the crowd for their reaction. She took a year off to have a baby, but to earn Kim's respect, that was what she wanted. Terrell says they are tied one match apiece, so she thinks that they need to have a tie breaker to see who the best is.
The Beautiful People now make their way out and mock Terrell and Kim for their lovefest. Love asks who made Kim the boss, because Kim lost at Slammiversary. Kim is not the champion and is not the leader of the division. Love says Kim's opinion doesn't matter, go away Gail. Love then mocks their dresses and asks if they are going to the prom. The Beautiful People attack and look to double-team Kim. They lay the boots to her, but Terrell fires back with forearms and clotheslines. Terrell and Kim clear the ring and stand tall.
MVP meets with Angle, and asks why he is here. Angle just wanted to speak with MVP, and says he has been watching on TV. Angle wants to ask MVP if he thinks what he is doing what is right. MVP says Angle shouldn't try to Dr. Phil him, noting that Angle should side with them. How would Angle's family feel if Angle came here and got beat down.
