On Friday evening at their home base in Orlando, Florida, TNA taped additional content for next week’s edition of Impact Wrestling on Pop TV.

TNA Impact Wrestling Spoilers (Air Date: Thurs., Jan. 12th)
The following are results of the first-half of the content taped for next week’s Impact Wrestling on Pop TV episode (1/12) from Thursday night’s tapings in Orlando, Florida. The below comes from our spoilers posted earlier this week here at eWrestling.com (via WrestlingINC.com).
* Aron Rex and Rockstar Spud have been re-branded as a “Liberace + valet” type of unit. Spud is sporting a powder blue doorman suit; Rex in a floor length white fur coat with oversized, sparkly rings on most fingers. Rex cuts a flamboyant promo claiming that Spud has been “reborn” and “it’s not about violence in 2017.” Robbie E interrupts and gets the double attack in ring. Rex will apparently be using his oversized rings as a brass-knuckle type ploy.
* Braxton Sutter defeated Mike Bennett. Allie comes out midway through match as an equalizer against Maria Kanellis. It appears the real-life couples will be continuing this storyline.
* TNA Knockouts Champion Rosemary cuts a promo in the ring on how there’s no more challengers for her to take on. Jade, now sporting short hair, interrupts and requests another shot. Rosemary challenges Jade to a Monster’s Ball match (Red vs. Blue). Rosemary goes on the attack after Jade accepts.
* The Hardys defeated The Wolves to retain the TNA Tag Team Titles. Excellent match with lots of high spots, near falls, 1 on 2 submissions, and 2 on 1 spots. Dissension between The Wolves starts brewing to set up a Davey Richards heel-turn on Edwards.
* Jessie Godderz defeated Bad Bones via submission in a match taped for Xplosion. Godderz is no longer wearing Bro-Mans trunks.
PART TWO (The Remaining Spoilers From 1/6 Taping):
* Aron Rex and Rockstar Spud defeated Robbie E and Swoggle in tag-team action. As noted, the duo debuted a new gimmick / character in the first-half of the show taped on Thursday (read above). The finish in this one saw Rex score the pinfall on Swoggle for the victory.
* Crazzy Steve and Abyss defeated Eddie Kingston and Bram via Disqualification in another tag-team contest. This one saw the match called off when James Storm hit the ring and blasted Abyss with a beer bottle, leading to a big post-match brawl. The official result had Crazzy Steve and Abyss winning due to the interference from Storm.
* Jade defeated Laurel Von Ness in a match taped for a future episode of the syndicated TNA television show Xplosion.
