Open Fight Night returns tonight, as Impact Wrestling continues its stay in England.  Here’s your spoiler-free preview for tonight’s pre-taped broadcast.

The Saga Continues…

Last week, Sting and Bully Ray plead their case regarding the latter’s ongoing suspension to an absent GM Hogan.  As Bully has said numerous times, Sting is the only guy who has really trusted him over the last few months.  Sting has the Hulkster’s ear, and Hulk is (in theory) the only one with the power to bring back Bully.  We should find out tonight whether Hulk will reinstate his (future?) son-in-law, or whether he’ll prefer to handle Aces & Eights on his own.

On Tuesday while discussing Brock Lesnar’s possible WrestleMania dance partner, I floated a hope for a possible Undertaker-Lesnar matchup at the Granddaddy of them all.

Any given segment on this week’s RAW fell into one of two buckets. The Amazing Bucket (Lesnar F-5ing Vince) or the I Almost Kicked a Hole Through My TV Bucket (Khali screwing up the words to HBK’s theme during a karaoke segment).
