Good show this week.

The Broken saga reached the Impact zone this week. Earlier in the week Broken Matt had goaded Brother Nero (Jeff Hardy) into trying to repeat his bike stunt that had previously injured him and cost them the tag team titles last year. Brother Nero tried, but quickly fell off the bike. Broken Matt gloated that now Jeff's precious bike was also Broken.

At the heart of all of the Broken Saga's transcendence of the wrestling genre, the heart of it is really a traditional wrestling plotline. In early 2015, the Hardyz had won the tag titles, but had to be stripped of them due to Jeff being reckless and injuring himself outside of the ring doing motorcycle stunts. Jeff's popularity comes from his recklessness, but the same recklessness meant that Matt got stripped of the titles due to no fault of Matt. Matt has good reason to be bitter about that! And reason to be bitter at the fans for encouraging his brother's reckless behavior.

Both Hardyz had matches this week. Jeff's chyron now says "Brother Nero -- #ObsoleteMule". He lost a Bound for Glory playoffs match due to his injuries from the repeat bike stunt earlier in the week. He is also now forced to enter to new music about how he sucks, played by Vangaurd 1, while Reby taunts Brother Nero for being Obsolete.

Unlike last year's Jeff Hardy As Ethan's Slave plotline, this time Jeff's spirit really does seem shattered. He's not so much a slave as he is... broken.

The main event itself was great. I had been hyped for it all week. Lashley's Destroyer character is perfect for being a dual champion, and a feud with the X-Division #1 contender Zema Ion should prove fun.

Tyrus is having videos to promote his "Fixer" hired thug character. Good segments so far.

Maria will have Gail Kim face each Knockout over the next few weeks. If Gail beats them all, she gets a titleshot. If she loses, the Knockout who beats her will get a reward. Madison Rayne attacked Gail after hearing that: Rayne is tired of being out of the spotlight.

Bram continues his relationship with Rosemary of the Decay.

Al Snow's Tribunal continued their feud with Mahabali Shera.

Matches:

1. Mike Bennett defeated Brother Nero (Jeff Hardy) in a Bound for Glory Playoffs match
2. Broken Matt Hardy defeated James Storm in a Bound for Glory Playoffs match
3. Ethan Carter III defeated Eli Drake in a non-title Bound for Glory Playoffs match
4. "Detective" Drew Galloway defeated Bram in a Bound for Glory Playoffs match
5. Title v. Title: Six Sides of Steel: "The Destroyer" Bobby Lashley (TNA World Heavyweight Champion) defeated Eddie Edwards (X-Division Champion) to become the dual champion

Afterwards Ethan ran out to save Eddie from a beatdown. Ethan is a Hero who does stuff like that, particularly when Lashley's involved, since Ethan is one of the few guys who can stop Lashley. This drew out Broken Matt (who will fight Ethan in the BFG Playoffs), Drew Galloway (who is frenemies with Ethan), and Mike Bennett and Moose (who had been banned from ringside).

It seemed like Bram actually wanted the help of Rosemary, but nothing happened. That seemed weird.
Broken Matt Hardy is easily the best thing Matt has done since being V1.

You think we'll see Brother Nero part of the next CTE lawsuit involving WWE in a couple of years?

The Comcast description for this show reads: "Kurt Angle is featured. Also: NASCAR drivers." I should have taken it as a portent. This was one of the worst episodes of Impact I've seen.
