12/8/11 Impact

Abyss vs. Samoa Joe: 1/2*

Mickie James vs. Madison Rayne: *

Garret Bischoff vs. Gunner: 1/2*

Gail Kim vs. Traci Brooks: 1/4*

AJ Styles & Jeff Hardy vs. Bobby Roode & Jeff Jarrett: **

Great promo from Roode. He's a natural heel and really will continue to go far in the company. I think I've seen more Al Snow sightings in the last couple months than in the previous 3-4 years. At least it feels like that.

I wonder how many teeth Abyss will have lost by the end of his wrestling career. Immortal tries to get back in Abyss' good graces but Abyss sees through all that. Pushing the monster back to relevancy, finally?

Devon and Pope promos with Morgan and Crimson. Devon on his game as usual. Pope stirs up trouble, and fists start flying. Devon's sons come in the ring and help Pope at Pope's direction? Interesting....

Average match between Mickie and Madison. Good momentum for Mickie.

Garret continues his fluky victories over Gunner. Eric Bischoff momentarily shows the fatherly figure side -- until he peels back the ringside mats to expose the floor. Piledriver by Gunner, albeit an extra-protective version of it.

Storm's back to confront Angle. Strong stuff from Storm, and he looks ready for Sunday. Sensing an Angle fluky win.

Hey, a second Knockouts match! Who thought Traci would just lay down? *no one raises their hand* Yeah, just as I thought. Just hate the lame-looking finishes, though. Couldn't the belt shot have been to the head instead of the back?

Good main event. Roode continues the heelish antics. Jarrett and Hardy fought to the back. Good finish, which all but confirms what we likely already knew: Roode retains by crook on Sunday. Look for Roode to go after AJ's left knee. Either way, it should be a great 30-Minute Iron Man match.
