The show opened with Ref, Earl Hebner knocking on a door to collect the World Heavyweight Championship title belt from Bobby Roode so that it could be hung up in the air ready for tonight’s main event. Still annoyed at Hulk Hogan for allowing RVD to pick the stipulation for his title shot, Roode rambled on at Earl and asked why Hogan himself didn’t go to collect his belt for the match which he didn’t want. He handed the belt over to Hebner and told him to go hang it up before stating that he’ll have it back real soon.

Fans reacted to the news earlier on today as Dixie Carter tweeted that, the daughter of Impact Wrestling’s General Manager, recording artist and TV personality Brooke Hogan is joining Impact Wrestling as the Executive in Charge of the Knockouts. If you read my piece on Hogan and Bischoff vs. Steiner you will have already seen that Steiner revealed that Brooke had been brought in to the company but he didn’t say in what capacity.

This feud has been going on for quite some time now and if you look back through each of the men’s Twitter accounts at a glance it would appear that they are all as bad as each other. We of course don’t know how deep the rivalry goes and can only see what each of them wants us to see.
SoCal Val and Mr Anderson made the big announcement which fans from the UK and Ireland have been waiting for on Sunday March 13th 2012’s episode of Impact Wrestling. TNA’s Lockdown cage is set to go on a vacation in January 2013 as it will leave America for the first time ever.
We’ve finally been let in on the secret which Christopher Daniels and Kazarian have been blackmailing AJ Styles with for what seems like an age. We all know that Daniels and AJ haven’t seen eye to eye since Daniels decided to declare himself as the face of TNA and run with that title; but at the start of this story it seemed as though it was Kaz who Daniels had dirt on.
The ‘go home’ show before we see Sacrifice on May 16th 2012 opened with a recap of Rob Van Dam and Bobby Roode picking each other’s opponents last week. We saw highlights from both of their matches including Roode hitting Hardy with his belt during the Hardy vs. RVD match.
