We're one week away from could be one of Jeff Hardy's biggest matches of his career as he gets ready to wrestle Jeff Jarrett for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Will the Charismatic Enigma overcome the odds and become the new champion or will The Stroke be too much for him? Find out this Wednesday as Jeff Hardy has his date with fate.
To open the show, Jeff Jarrett's music hits and he makes his way out to the ring with his title and guitar in hand and it doesn't take long for the crowd to chant Jeff Hardy's name.
Jarrett proceeds to taunt Jeff Hardy and calls him an outsider and outsiders aren't allowed in TNA unless they're Jarrett's friends. He's going to give him one last piece of advice and that is, keep your friends close and your enemies even closer. Jarrett sneers as we find out that up next it'll be 3 Live Kru vs. Abyss, Alex Shelley, and Nosawa and it's time for commercial.
Match #1 (Six Man Tag) - Abyss, Alex Shelley, & Nosawa (w/ Goldylocks) vs. 3 Live Kru:
Konnan and Nosawa kick things off. They lock up and they exchange arm wrenches. Konnan clotheslines Nosawa and proceeds to go to work on him. He connects with a hip toss, a reverse arm drag, and a clothesline.
Alex Shelley gets involved, only to get flapjacked for his efforts. Road Dogg is tagged in and there is a momentary technical difficulty. Abyss is tagged in and B-Jizzle needs to get psyched up from his team to take on the big man. Abyss is in control until BG James ducks a clothesline and hits his dancing punches. Abyss tries to chokeslam the Dogg, but The Truth comes in and they double team Abyss. Alex Shelley is tagged in and both men go at it until they take each other out.
The Truth and Nosawa are tagged in. Alex Shelley & Nosawa try to double team Ron Killings, until he fires back with a double dropkick. All chaos breaks out as all six men get involved. 3 Live Kru manage to clean house and The Truth wins the match for his team as he defeats Nosawa with a scissors kick.
Winner: 3 Live Kru
Post-match, Goldylocks proceeds to scold her team for losing as we go to commercial.

Kid Kash proceeds to beat on Romeo from the get go. Romeo whips him, but Kash comes back by pounding on his back and suplexing him.

More offense from Romeo, but Kash comes back with a thumb to the eye and Kash ends this squash match with the Money Maker (double underhook piledriver).

That's it for today, and I would like to pose my readers a question:
If TNA and WWE began to compete with one another and at some point one decides to invade the other, what are some matches you would like to see?
