After a few changes to the scheduled TNA Hardcore Justice edition of iMPACT! Wrestling, scheduled to air live this Thursday night on Spike TV, here is a revised look at the official lineup for the show.
TNA Hardcore Justice:
* Chris Sabin (c) vs. Bully Ray [TNA World Title Steel Cage Match]
* Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles vs. Austin Aries vs. Kazarian [Ladder Match For 20 BFG Series Points]
* Magnus vs. Samoa Joe vs. Bobby Roode vs. Mr. Anderson [Tables Match For 20 BFG Series Points]
* Mickie James & Gail Kim vs. Velvet Sky & ODB [TNA Knockouts Tornado Tag-Team Match]
As noted earlier, the scheduled main event featuring five members of the Main Event Mafia group challenging five members of the Aces & 8’s group, where the man to take the pin in the match must leave TNA for good, has been moved to the August 22nd edition of iMPACT! Wrestling. The 8/22 show will be taped immediately following the live airing of the Hardcore Justice themed show this Thursday night so they are still going to have to remove Kurt Angle from the main event. It honestly doesn’t make a lot of sense unless they have plans to shoot an angle during the live iMPACT! where they announce Kurt has been replaced by someone else. They must have some sort of plan in place for this week’s live broadcast. We shall see.
