*Spoilers* TNA Impact Wrestling Taping Report From Birmingham, England

The following is a complete TNA Impact Wrestling taping report from Birmingham, England, from the set of tapings filmed on Sunday, January 31, 2016. The report comes from F4WOnline.com.

– Matt Hardy promo to open, he’s said he has beaten EC3 so many times it’s now boring. He’ll never get a shot at Hardy again. Introduces Rockstar Spud (to his hometown). Points out that 1 year ago EC3 left him battered and bloodied, with his head shaved. Now the public are jumping on the latest bandwagon supporting EC3. He took some good old fashioned revenge, and took what EC3 craved. EC3 eventually interrupts with a run in and beats Tyrus, then Hardy. Spud tries to attack, but ends up getting away. EC3 challenges Spud to a “fight”, no ref, no rules.

TNA Xplosion:

– Jessie Godderz beat Tigre Uno by submission with a Boston crab.

Impact Wrestling Episode 1:

– Gail Kim promo. Knockouts division is all about wrestling. Maria is all talk, nobody wants that, they want to see her fight. Maria comes out. She’s proud of the lessons she taught Gail. She won’t cross the line and fight as she’s not like Gail. She says Gail wants to be just like her. Gail says she doesn’t want to be a celebrity, but married a celebrity chef. Maria loves being a celebrity, she was on Celebrity Apprentice, in Playboy. Maria won’t fight as she’s lady. Gail chases after her, only to be attacked by Jade.

– Birmingham street fight: EC3 vs Rockstar Spud went about 10 minutes until EC3 put spud through a table and choked him out. A bunch of refs (and Simon Diamond) came out to break it up.

Impact Wrestling Episode 2:

– Opens with Dixie carter in ring, TNA roster outside ring. They’re here to celebrate Kurt Angle. Dixie hoped this day would never come, and can’t thank Angle enough for everything he’s done. Drew Galloway gets in the ring, says it was an honor to be picked to wrestle him on his farewell tour. Asks him please don’t go, but then says thank you so much. Angle talks, says he came to TNA to find himself, he’s a better person for being here. Bobby Lashley interrupts. It’s a bad day, but a great experience, an amazing thing for him, so thank you. But, he can see it as he looks at
Angle’s eyes and Kurt’s just not ready to wrestle him.

– Borash mentions this is the Feast or Fired episode of impact, and we’ll find out who got what later.

TNA Xplosion:

– Marti Bell and Rebel of Dollhouse vs Beautiful People (Rayne & Sky). Velvet picks up the win after a stunner

Impact Wrestling:

– King of The Mountain Title Match: Bram, EY, Will Osprey, Jimmy Havoc and Big Damo. Osprey first to qualify with a crucifix on havoc. Then Young with a piledriver on the steps to havoc. Then Bram is eliminated. EY with the win before anyone else qualified. Match was pretty short.

Feast or Fired briefcases:

Beer Money: Tag title shot
Eli Drake: KOTM title shot
Drew Galloway: World title shot
Grade: Fired

– Mike “The Miracle” Bennett promo demanding to be named number 1 contender, interrupted by Drew Galloway. Back and forth until Galloway finally loses his rag and takes out Bennett.

– Knockouts Champion Gail Kim vs Jade. Kim wins a good match with a backwards cross body off the ropes, which was countered by Jade, but rolled over again by Kim for the win.

– TNA Tag Champions Wolves vs Beer Money. Beer money win the titles, looks like Richards is injured. He took a bump from Storm awkwardly, and immediately rolled out of the ring with Hebner making the X sign with his arms, then noticeablely talking to the 3 remaining guys in the ring afterwards. Not sure if Beer Money winning was planned or an audible.

Grado rushed the ring for a promo, saying his firing was fishy. Eli Drake comes out and says he’s pathetic begging for his job back.

– Kurt Angle vs Lashley: good match, lots of back and forth. Angle had the ankle lock on Lashley about 3-4 times, but eventually Lashley won with a
spear, then attacked Angle again after the match. This brought Drew out, whom Lashley also beat down. Then Eddie Edwards also got a beat down. Finally EC3 came out, and Lashley walked off. Angle now with the farewell speech. He’s very grateful, he’ll see us again one day.
