Impact 1-19-12


1. Gunner v. AJ Styles
2. Magnus v. Crimson
3. Mickie James v. Madison Rayne in a Steel Cage
4. Angelina Love v. Eric Young
5. James Storm v. Jeff Hardy for #1 Contender Position

As every storyline was furthered in a match this week, here's the rundown:

Gunner continues to Kill his way to the top. Kazarian interfered at the urging of Christopher Daniels.

Crimson continues to be undefeated, but it looks like Magnus and Samoa Joe have their eyes on the Tag Team Titles, as they beat up on Crimson until Matt Morgan came to the rescue.

Madison Rayne knows more moves than just hitting her partner's opponent with a belt and hiding! Mickie James flattened her, and then met up with her friends (Tara and Velvet) backstage to talk about how Gail Kim is next.

Angelina Love was pissed at Eric and wanted a match. Eric wanted no part of it, but when Angelina and Winter started beating up on ODB, he threw them both out of the ring. ODB laid a big ol' kiss on Eric afterward. Just two crazy kids in love.

Apparently, "fighting" champion Bobby Roode doesn't like the idea of defending his championship, because he interrupted the #1 contenders match and took out both competitors. Logically, of course, he hit James first, which should have ended the match in a DQ and given the win to Hardy, but this is TNA. We already know this is heading to a triple-threat match; the non-finish is just standard practice now.

Actually, one other thing happened that somehow didn't lead to an immediate match. Austin Aries stated no one could possibly beat him anymore. Alex Shelley returned and challenged him. Aries called Shelley a joke, and Shelley said if that was true, he shouldn't be afraid to put up his title. So he will.
