IMPACT Taping Results from Manchester, England

Warning: The following contains spoilers for future episodes of IMPACT Wrestling from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Read at your own discretion.

* Mark Andrews defeated Dave Mastiff with a Shooting Star Press.

IMPACT - February 27th

* Matt Hardy and the Wolves beat The Revolution in a six man tag team match in about 10 minutes. Hardy wrestled most of it, Storm broke the tag up and the Wolves came in and attacked him, cleared the faction with a double topé and then Hardy hit a Twist of Fate for the pin.

* Kurt Angle came out and called out Lashley. Angle blamed Lashley for doing nothing when he got screwed out of a title match. Lashley said that was Angle's fight, not his. Angle says tonight when Lashley fights the BDC, Angle will return the favour and do ... nothing. The BDC come out after Angle leaves and Joe says Lashley is the one who sold out. MVP says Lashley has no help tonight and the show will end with him laid out and MVP as the new world champ.

* Rockstar Spud and Mr Anderson beat Tyrus and Ethan Carter III in about 8 minutes. EC3 interfered at the end and as Earl Hebner tried to throw him out, Anderson drilled Tyrus with a low blow and a Mic Check. Spud pinned Tyrus and they celebrated in the ring.

* Taryn Terrell came out with the Knockouts Title and called out Awesome Kong. She instead received Gail Kim, who came out and warned her of the dangers of wanting to fight Kong. Tayrn said she was sure she wanted to, and stayed in the ring. Kong came out, laid Terrell out and held the belt over her.

* Robbie E and Angelina Love beat Brooke and Chris Melendez. Robbie shoved Brooke off the top rope and pinned her. The BroMans all lay on top of her and took a photo with their selfie stick after the match.

* Austin Aries came out and threatened to cash in the Feast or Fired briefcase tonight after the main event. Samoa Joe came out and Aries called him a lapdog. Joe said he should go in there and bear him up, but Aries pre-empted him and dived out the ring, started a brawl. We get a referee down and a match breaks out. Aries beats Joe with a 450 splash after a failed interference from King, good match. After the match the BDC hit the ring and put Aries through a table. Aries is checked over by the trainers and eventually the referees have to help him to the back.

* Rampage Brown and Noam Dar from British Boot Camp started having a match, but Bram hit the ring and destroyed them both. Bram calls out Magnus. Grado dances out instead to attack Bram, but then he also gets laid out. Bram calls Magnus out again, but he still doesn't come so Bram leaves.

* The main event saw MVP challenge Lashley for the title. This match got crazy near the end, there was a ref bump. Eric Young ran in and attacked Lashley with a chair but got chased off by Bobby Roode, then Gunner brawled to the back with Joe, then King was laid out by Lashley. MVP nearly won it when a second ref ran in, but in the end Drew Galloway hit the ring and attacked MVP. Lashley retains by pinfall. Crazy shenanigans. That ends the show.

IMPACT - March 6th

* Impact started with Taryn Terrell facing Awesome Kong. Kong got disqualified for shoving the ref although he didn't even go down. Kong went to drive Taryn into the floor at ringside but Gail Kim came to the rescue and pulled her off. Kong and Gail brawled to the back.

* Bram beat Matt Hardy in the second match. Hardy got a near fall with a moonsault but Bram used a low blow to set up the finisher. Bram tried to attack Hardy with a weapon after the match, and Magnus ran lit and fought him off. Magnus says he's going to stand up for himself and his family and issues a threat to Bram.

* Bobby Roode comes out and tells Eric Young he's still standing and nothing can stop him becoming #1 contender tonight. Kurt Angle hits the ring and says that he'll stop him, because Angle will be the #1 contender. Young sneak attacks Roode from behind in the ring but then Angle holds him back and they get into a fight. Roode and Angle fight Young off and he runs to the back.

* Storm and Abyss defend the world tag titles against The Wolves next. This was great, the other Revolution guys at ringside kept interfering to keep the advantage early. Matt Hardy showed up to even the odds. In the end the ref was trying to take the rope off Abyss when Hardy drilled him with a twist of fate, Edwards hit the stomp off the top and Davey covered for the win! We have NEW World Tag Team Champions.

* The BDC come out and take turns on the mic to be angry at Drew Galloway for his interference in the title match. Drew enters through the crowd and says he's come to TNA to stand up for wrestling and wrestling fans. The BDC threaten to go to Drew's parents house if he doesn't fight them. Drew challenges Kenny King, that match is next.

* Drew beat King with a double arm DDT. Immediately after the match, the BDC charged back down but Drew escaped back into the crowd.

* Rockstar Spud comes out, the fans sing happy birthday to him. He calls EC3 out to fight him. Ethan comes down and Spud gets in his face and they set up a match for London. It's going to be a hair vs hair match! Decent promo. Main event time next.

* Kurt Angle beat Bobby Roode and Eric Young in a three-way match to become the #1 contender to the World title. Real good match, Angle caught Young with 10 consecutive German suplexes at one point. There was a ref bump, Young hit Roode upside the head with a chair and Angle hit a second Angleslam on Roode for the win. Angle is the #1 contender. Lashley comes out and goes face to face with him and holds the belt up to end the show.
