PREVIEW FOR THURSDAY'S HUGE "iMPACT!" ON SPIKE TV: STING/ANGLE VS. TEAM 3D, DEBUT OF FOLEY'S "HARDCORE HISTORY" AND MORE

This Thursday night, TNA Wrestling returns to SpikeTV at 9pm ET for two hours of Total Nonstop Action - featuring the aftermath of the "Against All Odds".

The following is an early preview of what will take place on the broadcast - card is subject to change:

- Immediately after Against All Odds, TNAwrestling.com learned that a match was made for this Thursday night with still-TNA World Champion Sting and Kurt Angle teaming up to take on Team 3D! The question is, what will happen between Sting and Angle? Will Sting and Angle find a way to get along - or will we witness the meltdown of the Main Event Mafia this Thursday night on SpikeTV? Can Team 3D avenge their loss at the PPV?

- Speaking of The Main Event Mafia, TNA Legend's Champion Booker T will address the actions of "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles at the Pay-Per-View!

- The broadcast will also feature the debut of Mick Foley's "Hardcore History", a new weekly segment where the legend shares some of his favorite behind-the-scenes wrestling stories from throughout his career!

- At Against All Odds, Samoa Joe appeared and told Scott Steiner he was about to be the first victim of his "nation of violence". What does The Samoan Submission Machine have planned for Steiner? Will Joe appear this Thursday night? Tune in and find out!

- There will be a Knockouts Gauntlet Match on "iMPACT!" as it will be Taylor Wilde vs. Angelina Love vs. ODB vs. Raisha Saeed vs. Roxxi vs. Velvet Sky vs. Sojo Bolt vs. Rhaka Khan vs. Madison Rayne

- Plus, still-TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, Inc. will battle the juggernaut tandem of "The War Machine" Rhino and the maniacal Abyss!

All this and much more this Thursday night at 9pm ET on SpikeTV, plus news on the upcoming March 15 "Destination X" Pay-Per-View event featuring the return of "The Ultimate X" match!

Im interested to hear what Foley has to say.

I hope AJ beats Booker for the legend's title eventually

Joe's gonna kill Steiner

I bet Angle/Sting fight or something. I guess Sting is gonna be a face eventually?

Just wanna say how much I enjoyed Sting's promo at the end of the show. Really passionate and really awesome.

Yeah, that was awesome. As much of a Sting fan as I am (I think he's bigger than the MEM stable itself), I'd rather this ends with him staying with the Mafia and it continues a little longer. Feels like it's too soon for a civil war! lol

Last night was a good show, overall, I'd say. The female battle royal was pretty poorly wrestled at a lot of parts, so I only watched a little of it. I really enjoyed the Motor City Machineguns and Lethal Consequences match. The latter is really making a good team.

They're doing a good job of verbally building up this year's Ultimate X match, and I liked Foley's hardcore stories. We've all heard them before, but they're a good way to introduce them to TNA fans that are new to wrestling who might not have known a lot about his history.

Like I said, part of me thinks the point is to introduce (or re-introduce) Mick to those who don't know him or his history well. I know most TNA fans came from being WWE fans and still are, but I'm sure some don't know Mick.

Yeah makes sense...I like it regardless of its point haha

I dont like Sting and Angle feuding like this so early. The Mafia is catching steem and looking fierce and now this. I hope they end up working it out haha
