As the show opened we saw a recap of the General Manager (GM) fiasco involving Sting, Hulk Hogan and Dixie Carter. When the video package finished the camera cut to Sting and Dixie Carter who were stood in the ring with the majority of the TNA roster stood around them on the arena floor.
Mike Tenay had told us moments earlier that Hogan had called everybody to the ring for the meeting but when Dixie took to the mic she said that she had asked all of the wrestlers to join her to introduce Hulk Hogan, even though he doesn’t need an introduction, to everybody. As he made his way to the ring the Hulkster milked every last drop of the crowd reaction (as he always does). He was handed a mic by Dixie Carter and explained how good it felt to be the GM of Impact Wrestling; he went on to personally thank Sting for having his back and Dixie for giving him his second chance. Hogan, stated that there will be some new segments introduced to Impact and that a few things need to be taken care of starting with the business of Lockdown.
