12/11 IMPACT Taping Results (For 12/20 and 12/27 IMPACT Shows)
December 20th Episode
-Jeff Hardy defeated Austin Aries to retain the World Heavyweight Title. The original referee was knocked out during the match. Bobby Roode interfered at that point, laying out the referee. He then made a pinfall for Aries; who turned around into the Double R Spinebuster. Hardy then picked up the win.
-Hulk Hogan comes to the ring. He brags about how good 2012 has been for IMPACT Wrestling. About we will decide the best of 2012 and find out who that is on January 3rd. Hogan is interrupted by the Aces and 8s who run down what they have done this year and say next year will be better. They circle Hogan and are about to attack when the 1.3.13 video airs. After we find out nothing is happening, Bully Ray makes the save for Hogan. It seems like Hogan and Ray are now on the same terms.
December 27th Episode
-Its Open Fight Night on this episode. Samoa Joe starts the show by calling out a member of the Aces and 8s. The member (Mike Knox) obliges. Joe wins the match with the Coquina Clutch. He is about to unmask him when the other Aces and 8s run to the ring. Joe retreats before he is attacked.
-We get a bizarre in-ring segment involving the two Robbies and Jessie and Tara. Robbie E challenges Jessie to a "bro off." Robbie E dances followed by Jessie flexing and then military pressing Tara over his head. At that point, Robbie T steps up and military presses Robbie E over his head and follows that up with a dance. Again, a bizarre but somewhat entertaining segment.
-Rob Van Dam calls out Christian York. He defeats him in a competitive match with the 5 Star Frog Splash.
-Bully Ray comes out and calls out Hulk Hogan for a chat tonight. Instead, Brooke Hogan comes to the ring. Apparently, Hulk isn't here tonight. Brooke talks about there being pictures showing the truth. Bully doesn't know what Brooke is talking about as both of them leave the ring.
-Austin Aries comes to the ring. He said he had Hardy beaten fair and square last week if it hadn't been for Bobby Roode. He hypes up an Austin Aries vs Bobby Roode match for tonight.
-Christopher Daniels comes to the ring and brags about how great his year has been. He jokes about the last match ever between AJ Styles but really means the last match until the next match between the two. AJ Styles' music hits and Kazarian (dressed up like AJ) comes to the ring. Kazarian acts like AJ and whines about how bad the year has been for him; even saying that he should call up Claire Lynch again. After some more taunting of AJ, Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez interrupt; eventually setting up a tag team match.
Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez beat Bad Influence after Chavo pinned Kazarian with a Frog Splash. Kazarian did a bunch of AJ's moves in the match but missed his Flying Forearm to set up the finish.
-Gail Kim came to the ring and called out the woman who ended her undefeated streak, Brooke Tessmacher. The two had a match which saw Gail defeated Brooke with the Eat Defeat.
-Austin Aries vs Bobby Roode went to a No Contest. Both guys tried to outcheat each other. Jeff Hardy was watching the match from the crowd. After the referee gave up on the match, Hardy came in and laid out both Aries and Roode.
-Mickie James and ODB defeated Tara and Madison Rayne
