Greetings and Salutations! While Bob does Bob stuff, I’ll be covering TNA Impact. On this week’s show we have a shot at the X-Division title as “Speedball” Mike Bailey takes on Trent Seven. The Knockouts title will be on the line as Jordynne Grace defends against Marti Belle in what is sure to be a hard hitting affair. We also have a non-title match as TNA Tag Team The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) take on “Broken” Matt Hardy & Ryan Nemeth. With all this and more, let’s get straight to the action.
