1. King Of The Mountain Match: TNA Champion Samoa Joe vs Christian Cage vs Rhino vs Robert Roode vs Booker T w/Kevin Nash as the special enforcer
Before I get started, I have to note how good each video package & interview was with each competitor throughout the entire night that are worth checking out as it heavily put over the main event & put over each person as not only wanting to win the match & become champion but also having something to prove as well.
Now for those who never seen a the King Of The Mountain match before, it's a ladder match in reverse with alot of stipulations. To win the match, you have to use the ladder hang the belt instead of using the ladder to pull it down like a normal ladder match. However before you can hang the belt, you have to qualify to do it by scoring a pinfall/submission over one of the other competitors...and the person who loses that fall goes into a penality box for 2 mins. Yeah, sounds real gimmicky but when you watch it come together...it's a real easy match to follow. Overall, this was more like a 5 way dance as oppossed to the previous KOTM matches that came off like a ladder match as there wasn't as many spots as the previous ones & there wasn't much of a story told here as everyone, with the exception of Booker T, qualified towards the end of the match before the finish happened with Samoa Joe becoming the first champion to retain his championship in the KOTM match. This match was a solid performance but didn't feel like a main event & should have switched places with the Angle/Styles match.
