TNA Impact TV taping results & spoilers: New GMs, new title created

For the TV shows airing 7/8, 7/15 and 7/22:

- Kurt Angle b TNA Champion Ethan Carter III via DQ when Carter hit the ref to save the title

- Dixie Carter returned, but to EC 3's surprise, she's now a babyface, apologizing for all the things she's done.  Fans didn't buy her as a face.

- Grado b DJ Zema Ion in a match taped for Xplosion

- Brooke b Marti Bell to retain the Knockouts title

- Carter announced the return of Bully Ray as the new General Manager. He's a babyface and said he's going to take TNA to the promise land, kind of like when Vince McMahon turned over the hosting duties of TNT to Gene Okerlund.

- Drew Galloway won a 20 man Battle Royal to earn a shot at EC 3's title as ordered by Bully Ray

- Matt Hardy b Bobby Roode in a tables match

- Tag Team Champion sEddie Edwards & Davey Richards b Hernandez & Kenny King

- TNA Champion EC 3 b Drew Galloway to keep the title when Eli Drake turned heel on Galloway

- James Storm started bullying Khoya. Khoya attacked Storm, turned babyface and is now back to being Mahabili Shera.  He started doing a pro-India character.

- Bully Ray suspended Drake for one week without pay for interfering in the EC 3 vs. Galloway match.  He threatened to strip EC 3 of his title.

- Bram b Magnus in a street fight.  Storm beat up Magnus after the match.

- Matt Hardy won a four-way ladder match over Hernandez, Bram and Eric Young to get the next shot at EC 3.  Ken Anderson attacked Bram.

- The King of the Mountain match will be for the newly created King of the Mountain title. Since they taped weeks of TV and nobody showed up with the belt in front of the people, and everyone in that match but Jeff Jarrett has been on TV, that makes Jarrett the favorite.
