*Spoilers* Results for TNA Impact Wrestling 2/21/13

Sources: PWInsider and Chris Kelly's tweets from the event

Rockstar Spud def. Robbie E after Robbie T stopped Robbie E from grabbing the list, allowing Spud to roll him up for the pin. Robbie E then berated T after the match, slapping him, which led to T taking his shirt off as E ran off in fear, looking as if this duo is no more.

Hernandez, Chavo Guerrero, Joseph Park & James Storm def. Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, Bobby Roode & Austin Aries. The heels couldn't get along, as Roode and Aries walked out on the match, which left Kazarian to eat everyone's finishers, including a second rope splash from Park for a face team to win.

X Division Chapionship Match - RVD def. Kenny King. King attacked Van Dam at the bell, but eventually saw RVD retaining his title with the five star frog splash.

Hulk Hogan comes of for a promo to officially announce the number one contender for Lockdown. And it's... Bully Ray?!?! Ray accepts Hogan's TNA world title offer and sets up the main event for tonight - Aces and Eights vs. Bully Ray, Sting and... Hulk Hogan!! (Yep, you didn't misread that!)

Samoa Joe def. Garrett Bischoff via DQ as Wes Brisco interferes in the match. The Aces & Eights then briefly beat up Joe but Angle ran out to make the save. They then announce that for Lockdown that it will be Wes Brisco vs. Kurt Angle in a cage match.

4-Way Elimination Match for the Knockouts Championship - Velvet Sky def. Gail Kim, Tara, and Brooke Tessmacher to win the title. Tara was eliminated first after Gail pinned Tara after Velvet hit her sit out pedigree on Tara so a new champion is already guarenteed after the first fall. Tessmacher was next to be eliminated after her attempt to roll up Velvet from another sit out pedigree failed. Finally, Gail was eliminated after Velvet hit her with another sit out pedigree to get the victory.

Aces & Eights (Devon, Ken Anderson and DOC) def. Bully Ray, Sting and Hulk Hogan. Hogan's music played twice, but Hogan didn't appear. Later on, Bully was about to do the Wazaap move on a mystery Aces and Eights man but Knox and other Aces &Eights guys came out with a kidnapped Brooke and injured Hulk. Bully ran off to save her as Aces &Eights stole pin on Sting. Post match beat down on Sting as Bully and Brooke and Hulk watched on from the ramp. The locker room emptied out as war erupted to end the show.

Magnus def. Christopher Daniels via an elbow drop. Apparently Magnus also has new entrance music as well.

Austin Aries vs. Bobby Roode ends in a double countout as Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez appear at ringside to cause a distraction. Said to be a very good and funny match with both men trying to the finger poke of doom on each other, with neither budging and also both doing the Eddie Guerrero chair spot.

Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle ends in a double DQ as both Wes Brisco & Garrett Bischoff made a run in to interfere.

Gail Kim, Tara & Jessie def. The Blossom Twins & Party Marty (Scurll)

Ric Flair pulled from his ring return

Source: PWInsider

Ric Flair did not return to the ring earlier today for the All Japan Pro Wrestling promotion after all. Flair, despite being in Japan for AJPW's Ota Ward Gymnasium live event, did not wrestle due to some sort of health issue. Flair was replaced by his son, Reid, who was moved up from a preliminary tag match to work with Keiji Mutoh (Great Muta) in a losing effort to Tatsumu Fujinami and Seiya Sanada when Sanada pinned Flair in 15:31. The bout, which would have seen Flair in the ring Fujinami for the first time since 1991 as well as teaming with Mutoh for possibly the first time ever, was also to have been Flair's first bout in Japan since retiring from WWE in 2008.
