    WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-2-1, 27 KOs) defeated #12 WBO Mirko Larghetti (21-1, 13 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Gerry Weber Stadium, Halle, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

    Huck just narrowly missed knocking the 31-year-old Larghetti out in the 12th round after hurting him and knocking him out after the bell. Huck hurt Larghetti before the bell, but he was knocked out after the bell. Either way, Larghetti lost the fight. The final judges’ scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110.

    It was a pretty dirty fight by Huck, who landed a number of very hard elbows to the head and rabbit punches during the fight. The elbows seemed to do a lot of the damage in the later rounds when Huck was landing at least one hard elbow to the head per round. Larghetti kept his cool didn’t retaliate, but he did complain to the referee Jack Reiss about the elbows. He in turn warned Huck but never took any points away for them.

    Impact Wrestling starts off with a video package showing The Hardys, The Wolves, and Team 3D. Those three teams will battle it tonight. It then switches to the Six Sides of Steel where Bobby Roode and Eric Young both dropped to the floor at the same time. Who goes after the TNA World Heavyweight Championship?

    The camera shows the Manhattan Center as the crowd is on their feet! They are ready! Music hits and here comes Kurt Angle! Kurt comes through the crowd in the balcony. He has a mic. He welcomes New York City to Impact Wrestling. He says it is his job to put on the best show he possibly can for all of us. Tonight he did not disappoint. Tonight there will be a grudge match between Ethan Carter III and Rhino. And for the main event it will be Team 3D vs. The Hardys vs. The Wolves. He then says he was suppose to congratulate the winner of the Six Sides of Steel match last week but Roode and Young both won. He will sit down with them though. He will let us know about later. Just then, music plays and here comes MVP and then Lashley and Kenny King are behind him. They walk down the ramp. They get in the ring and MVP grabs a mic. MVP asks Kurt if he said “fair”. He says he lost respect for Kurt for pandering for the New York City fans. He then asks Kurt how the man in charge is as everyone thinks that they can book a match… especially when they have a phone and a 140 characters. MVP then starts to mock the New York City crowd.

    MVP continues and says this crowd has little dignity. And if gave out chokeholds, everyone will be down on their @ss. He says the King of New York is The Destroyer Lashley! Lashley steps forward and raises the TNA World Championship. Just then, Tommy Dreamer walks down the ramp with a microphone. He gets in the ring. He says MVP knows how he feels about him. He says MVP is one of the most underrated talents in wrestling. He then says Kenny King is a sell-out because he is from Queens. He is better than this. He turns to Lashley and says he has finally lived up to the potential he has. He has become the most dominate World Heavyweight Champion this or any company has ever seen through his handwork and sacrifices for this audience. He doesn’t need to get cheap heat. Just then, King hits Dreamer from the side. Dreamer falls. King grabs him and tosses him to the outside. MVP gets back on the mic and tells Kurt he has this. Just then, Dreamer grabs a kendo stick, trips King, pulls him to the outside and tosses him away. Dreamer gets in and MVP continues to talk but Kurt tells him to shut up and says it should be Tommy Dreamer vs. Lashley in a New York City Street Fight. How about that Lashley? MVP talks up the game to Dreamer and, out of nowhere, Lashley attacks Dreamer. Dreamer falls. Lashley stomps on him and the bell sounds.

    Pre-Raw Commercial

    Cena is back tonight as he readies for his rematch. Hogan, Flair and HBK will start Raw this week!

    Pre-Raw Commercial

    Cena is back tonight as he readies for his rematch. Hogan, Flair and HBK will start Raw this week!

    Raw Starts

    WWE Hall of Fame Forum

    Cole introduces Hogan to the ring. He comes out in red and yellow, minus the feather boa. Flair follows suit, and heads to the ring in a dapper suit. HBK out in a cowboy hat, a Remington t-shirt, jeans and a black blazer, as always looking like he got dressed at the last moment. They all sit at an announce table in the ring. Cole says they will discuss Cena vs Lesnar. Cole says that for those unaware, Brock defeated Cena for the WWE WHC. Last week Cena invoked his re-match clause at NoC.

    Cole – HBK, what do you think are Cena’s chances winning back the WWE WHC at NoC?

    HBK – As much as I’d love to be long winded, but I’m not. With all due respect, his chances are not good. It’s ain’t happenin’.

    Flair – He got the holy hell beat out of Michael.

    HBK – Now look, I think, especially this panel here, the three of us know a man comes to a crossroads where he needs to make a decision. We all made it, wasn’t easy, but we made it anyway, and I think Cena is at that crossroads, and maybe it’s time to say when.

    Hogan – Let me tell you something brother. When it’s your time, you know it’s your time. John Cena’s time’s not up, he can still go. (mixed)

    Cole – Ric, by your earlier statement, it sounds like you agree with Shawn Michaels’ assessment?

    Flair – First of all, I do agree with Shawn, but I have to say that all three of us think the world of John Cena. He’s the franchise, a 15 time WHC! That’s right, 15 times, and he is the franchise, like it or not. But do I want him against Brock Lesnar at NoC? I don’t think so. I don’t feel it.

    Cole – Hulk, your prediction? Cena or Brock Lesnar at NoC.

    Hogan – I’ve gotten to know Cena on a close, personal level. This hustle, loyalty, respect, this isn’t a marketing logo, it’s not a marketing logo. This is really John Cena. He’s got heart, he won’t stop. So I’m rooting for Cena all the way on this one.

    Flair – Whoa, I’m rooting for Cena too.

    HBK – This isn’t a personality contest. Everybody likes John Cena. It doesn’t change the fact that he hasn’t got a chance.

    Hogan – Wait a minute guys, I saw the first match in Chicago. Brock dominated Cena, beat the hell out of Cena, but Cena found a way to win!

    HBK – I don’t mean to interrupt you, but obviously, I’m going to. John Cena, you just said it, nobody takes a beating like that and comes out the same man! He’s not the same. It’s that simple.

    Hogan – Before you interrupted me, I said he took a beating, but he got his hand raised. This is the rubber match. They’ve each got a victory. Some way, somehow, Cena will find a way to get his hand raised brother, that’s all I’m saying.

    Flair – You don’t believe that.

    HBK – You don’t believe it, he don’t believe it, and I certainly don’t believe it, and these people don’t believe it, and the reason is it’s unbelievable.

    Hogan – I’ll tell you something you can believe, John Cena’s a different animal, (Cena’ music hits) and he’s got something to different…
