Thanks to Dale Dietrich/WrestlingInc for the following TNA Impact Wrestling spoilers from Saturday's tapings in Bethlehem, PA. These should air on Tuesday, February 2nd:
* Bobby Lashley defeated Aiden O'Shea in about 5 minutes. After the match, the same woman from the January 26th episode that flirted with Lashley came back out. She said the next time she sees Lashley, she can bring pain or pleasure. She had to repeat herself because she didn't have the mic close enough to her mouth. She leaves and then Lashley leaves. Our correspondent wrote, "Pretty dumb."
* World Heavyweight Champion Matt Hardy comes out with wife Reby Sky and Tyrus. Matt says what happened to Jeff Hardy last week was karma paying him a visit, with the piledriver through a table. Matt says it was business, not personal. Eric Young comes out with Bram, and wants a title shot. Kurt Angle is out next. Angle reveals that his next match on the farewell tour is against Matt for the title, and it will be tonight. Angle says he will kick everyone's ass. Beer Money is out next. They want to fight Bram and EY. This leads to a big brawl. The Wolves, Abyss and Crazzy Steve all run out and join the fight. Fans are chanting "Matt's a pussy"
* Bram, EY, Steve and Abyss vs. The Wolves and Beer Money in a Hardcore War is announced for later. The heels leave first and then the babyfaces after some crowd interaction
* Shane Helms vs. TNA X Division Champion Tigre Uno is next. Helms comes out in street clothes and says Uno agreed to a title match, but not against him. He introduces his challenger and out comes Trevor Lee. Lee wins the title and looked impressive. Helms and Lee appear to be together as heels but the crowd was giving Lee a lot of love
* Tyrus vs. Drew Galloway, said to be very slow paced at times, ends when Galloway hits a powerbomb from the second turnbuckle. The lights go out and Maria Kanellis appears on the stage. She says Galloway's miracle happens now. The lights come back on and Mike Bennett nails Galloway with his own Feast or Famine briefcase. Bennett cuts a promo on Drew and says he's the miracle TNA needs
* Crazzy Steve, Abyss, Bram and Eric Young defeated Beer Money and The Wolves in a Hardcore War. Davey Richards and Steve started the match, every 60 seconds a new man joins in. Bram came out next with a pipe. James Storm was out next with a keg of beer. The crowd was hot for the match now. EY brought a Singapore cane out and Eddie Edwards brought a trash can lid. Fans chanted "this is awesome" as Storm took a break to drink a beer handed to him by a fan. Abyss is out next with Janice. He swings and misses. Bobby Roode is out next with a hockey stick. Lots of fun brawling and spots like a six-man suplex. Beer Money fights Bram and EY to the back. Abyss lays Davey out with a title belt and Steve covers him for the win. Abyss and Steve celebrate and leave, still in possession of the titles
* Maria comes out alone. She says women's wrestling needs a miracle and she is the arrow, the First Lady of Wrestling. Maria says she will change the women's division. TNA Knockouts Champion Gail Kim comes out. Maria offers to help Kim and take her to the next level. Kim says Maria should lace her boots up and they have words. Kim wants to fight but Maria leaves
* Kurt Angle vs. Matt Hardy for the World Heavyweight Title is the main event. Fans chant "Matt's a pussy" again during the introductions. Angle laughs. Lots of back and forth in the match. The lights go out and come back on, apparently just an error by someone in the back. Angle hits a bunch of belly to belly suplexes. Angle went to the top but was distracted by Reby Sky, who was at ringside with Tyrus. Hardy ended up hitting a Twist of Fate from the turnbuckles for the win. Team Hardy celebrated to end the show
