Predictions Contest:

8.TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Steel Cage Match
AJ Styles Vs Jeff Hardy
Out of the two guys who can't speak on the mic for their lives, AJ Styles is the one to have as champion.

7.Lethal Lockdown Match
Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett & Rob Van Dam)
Vs Team Flair (Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino & Samoa Joe)
This could really do wonders for Wolfe, Morgan or Joe, depending on who you have defeat Angle at the end. Whether this will actually happen, I don't know, but I think Team Flair is the right way to go in terms of booking.


6.Steel Cage Match
Mr. Anderson Vs Sting
Mr. Anderson, because young talent MUST go over.

4. TNA Global Championship
Steel Cage Match
DíAngelo Dinero Vs Abyss
If anybody was going to take the title off of Dinero, it would have been Rhino. So D'Angelo Dinero will retain, simply because Abyss has not been built well enough.

1.TNA X Division Championship
XScape Match
Christopher Daniels Vs Amazing Red Vs Brian Kendrick Vs Jay Lethal Vs Kazarian Vs Shannon Moore
Christopher Daniels is the guy I care about the most.

5. TNA World Tag Team Championship
Steel Cage Match
Beer Money Vs Motor City Machine Guns
Have Beer Moneytake the win, and let this feud continue, since disappointingly, most of it was done in recap.

2. TNA Knockouts Championship
Steel Cage 3-Way Dance
Tara Vs Angelina Love Vs Daffney
Tara, because she's my fav out of this lot.

3.Steel Cage Match
Eric Young Vs Rob Terry
I'm hoping Young doesn't get any permanent damage from Terry's botching, and if all goes well, Eric Youngshall win.

Questions:
Put the matches in order
Done above.
Which matches will open and close the show?
Xscape match to open, Championship match to close.
How many titles will change hands?
None.
Who will be the final two in the XScape Match?
Daniels and Lethal.
Who will take the fall in the Lethal Lockdown Match?
Kurt Angle.
How many matches will end with pinfall, submission, and escaping the Cage?
Xscape match will be escaping the cage, and Anderson will escape the cage, rest will be pinfall.
Which team will enter first in Lethal Lockdown?
Team Flair.
Who will make the winning pinfall in Lethal Lockdown?
Desmond Wolfe.

3-22 Impact! Feedback

First time actually reviewing the thread. Destination X was pretty good and Iím looking forward to see where things go from here.

A decent promo to kick things off, with Flair and Angle having had quite the confrontation these past few months. Not sure if this is how most TNA promos are, but this whole thing seemed a little rushed. Flair came out too quickly, imo, and I would have loved to hear more from Angle before the two went back and forth. Even after Flair came out, it still seemed too quick. But Lethal Lockdown does sound pretty awesome, even though Flair wonít be wrestling in it. The Angle Slam to end things was a nice surprise, as I figured weíd just get a staredown. Interested to see who both men pick for their teams.

Again, my lack of TNA knowledge probably makes me not as excited about Sheik returning as I should be. Heís Daivari from the WWE, right? Anyway, a good match that got Sheik and Homicide over, with World Elite probably getting a decent push heading into Lockdown. I see these two doing more damage over the next few weeks.

I see a beatdown of Angle coming from Flair and his captain. Maybe someone will come to save Kurt?

Good match between Rhino and Abyss, but it isnít given nearly enough time due to it being on a weekly show. Thought Rhino had the match won after that Gore, but Abyss somehow survived it. Good ending, with Abyss becoming the next challenger to Diniero. Thought the match was a bit sluggish at times, with Rhino locking in some submissions, but it still got the job done.

Nice little interview from the Pope, as I love when the champions immediately address their new challenger. Simply build for the match but I was surprised to see that Rhino isnít quite out of the picture yet. Either Pope beats him cleanly next week to finally end their feud, or the match is a no contest and we get a three-way match at Lockdown. Iím going with the former.

Guess that was sufficient build for Morganís match?

Womenís matches are never all that exciting to me, but I like that you actually some sort of story between these two, with the match ending in a double countout due to the two women not being able to focus on winning the match, just beating each other up. No shock that weíll have a three-way dance at Lockdown. Not really a fan of having the women wrestle inside of a cage, but I guess you have to go along with the theme of the PPV, right?

I always love to hear from Ken Anderson (or sometimes Kennedy) and this was no different. His solo part of the promo was a little short for my liking, but he was still his brash and arrogant self, putting himself over and burying Sting. The challenge for Lockdown was expected but I really didnít like that Stinger accepted right away. Iím sure you have a good few weeks of buildup for these two planned but I just like it better when the challenge isnít accepted right away, especially from someone like Sting. Still, the match should be good and I hope that this feud is a springboard for Anderson in TNA.

A decent tag team match between Gen Me and the MCMG, with a ton of high spots from all four men really dominating the match. You got a lot done in six minutes, with both teams looking strong, but I feel that the better team ended up winning. Another good match lined up for Lockdown, with Beer Money and the MCMG probably set to have a good match. Itís a good clash of wrestling styles and personalities, so this should be a very good feud and match.

The matches just keep coming for Lockdown and this X Division match is going to be a good one, imo. Daniels isnít complaining to Hogan, but he is trying to build himself up by saying heíll win whatever match heís placed in. I certainly hope so.

Matt Morgan joining World Elite gives them a huge superstar to bring them to the next level. Morgan is a guy who could one day be TNA Champion, and I think he will be awesome with these guys. His part of the promo got him and the group over well enough and it was surprise to see Morgan come down with Rob Terry. The back and forth was OK, but Morgan again beating the two men up was definitely the way to go. I see a big push coming and that should be very entertaining.

Liked that Flair named Wolfe as his captain because it builds off the previous history that Angle and Wolfe had, with all the great matches in the past. But the primary feud is still Angle/Flair, with Wolfe probably feuding with someone else eventually named to Angleís team. The actual match was pretty good for TV, with the ending going back and forth. Thought Kurt might pull it out, but Desmond gets the win with the tights! The aftermath was interesting, with RVD helping Angle by taking out Wolfe. I know RVD still wrestles tonight, but that kiss on Chelsea and taking out Desmond might mean that they screw ĎVD in the main event. Either way, the Lethal Lockdown match is already looking good.

Joe on Team Flair will be good, with RVD no doubt joining Team Angle if he loses tonight. The battle lines have been drawnÖ

Very good main event between two of the best crowd-pleasers that you have in TNA. Good back and forth between the two, with both hitting some big moves for some big near falls. Jeff was always going to win this, but I do like how RVD hit the Five-Star and then the referee wasnít able to make the count. Keeps Van Dam looking strong even though he lost. Styles and Hardy have the usual tension-building stare down to end the show, and now the feud for Lockdown begins between the two.

First show that Iíve reviewed in this thread, and I was pretty impressed. Aside from a ton of big matches all being made on one show, I found the show entertaining. Looking forward to seeing what happens between now and April 18th.

***

8 - TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Steel Cage Match
AJ Styles Vs Jeff Hardy

Definitely going to be the best match of the night, with both men having huge fan followings heading into their clash. But AJ Styles is just too good as the champion and thatís why he will beat Hardy. Jeff may get a rematch, but I feel like this is just another big name for Styles to beat before he gets into a long-term feud.

7 - Lethal Lockdown Match
Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett & Rob Van Dam)
Vs Team Flair (Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino & Samoa Joe)

Team Angle are the faces and I see them finally beating Flairís team to get Kurt some validation. All kinds of new rivalries may result from this match, but in the end Angle will lead his team to victory.

5 - Steel Cage Match
Mr. Anderson Vs Sting

While I love Sting, he isnít the same wrestler he used to be and I think you know that. Mr. Anderson deserves to go over if this is indeed the feud-ender. Heís a main eventer and a future World Champion, so beating Sting would be the best way to jump-start his push.

4 - TNA Global Championship
Steel Cage Match
DíAngelo Dinero Vs Abyss

I just have a feeling that at least one title has to change hands on this show. And I believe the first one will be the Global Title, with Abyss becoming the new champion. Diniero had a good run, but I think itís The Monsterís time to shine with the belt.

1 - TNA X Division Championship
XScape Match
Christopher Daniels Vs Amazing Red Vs Brian Kendrick Vs Jay Lethal Vs Kazarian Vs Shannon Moore

Despite the fact that heís done it before, I see Christopher Daniels defying the odds yet again, winning this match and keeping the X Title. I do feel he will move into a serious feud, possibly with Gregory Helms, who will debut soon.

6 - TNA World Tag Team Championship
Steel Cage Match
Beer Money Vs Motor City Machine Guns

Two titles change hands on this show, and the second will see the MCMG beating the incumbent champions for the belts. I see some dissention between Roode and Storm, and losing will only escalate it even more.

2 - TNA Knockouts Championship
Steel Cage 3-Way Dance
Tara Vs Angelina Love Vs Daffney

Tara is still the best Womenís wrestler you have, so she should keep the belt. Next, plz.

3 - Steel Cage Match
Eric Young Vs Rob Terry

The leader of the huge heel group gets the victory over the midcarder, imo. Eric Young picks up the victory for his stable.

Questions:
Put the matches in order Done.
Which matches will open and close the show? Open - Xscape. Close - Styles/Hardy.
How many titles will change hands? Two.
Who will be the final two in the XScape Match? Daniels and Kazarian.
Who will take the fall in the Lethal Lockdown Match? Rhino.
How many matches will end with pinfall, submission, and escaping the Cage? Pinfall - 5. Submission - 2. Escape - 1.
Which team will enter first in Lethal Lockdown? Team Flair.
Who will make the winning pinfall in Lethal Lockdown? Kurt Angle.

TNA President Dixie Carter said, "This is a great opportunity to reward our fans with high-quality matches on free TV on two Thursday nights a year in August and December and on behalf of the entire company I would like to thank Spike for agreeing to broadcast these Champions Classic events".

The venue for Bound For Glory VI has been changed. Due to a scheduling conflict, the event will not be held at the Tucson Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona and will instead be held at the Orleans Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

Raven has re-signed with TNA, having been released at the start of the year following the historic January 4th episode of Impact. Dr. Stevie, who teamed with him prior to his release, is now listed as Stevie Richards on the TNA website. Jethro Holliday has officially been re-signed, and with TNA's links with Mexican promotion AAA, there are rumours that Judas Mesias, who debuted in TNA in late 2007 and was released in March 2008, could return and work for both companies. Other AAA talent could possibly do the same, and vice versa with TNA talent working in Mexico.

TNA Lockdown - Sunday, April 18th 2010
Dallas Convention Center – Dallas, Texas



Lockdown kicks off with a video package, showing numerous TNA stars standing inside the steel cage with a red carpet covering the mat and with every individual that appears, a clip flickers on and off of them suffering pain, such as bleeding or being attacked. We see highlights of events that have occurred over the past few months, such as Sting’s return which marked the beginning of his rivalry with Mr. Anderson, Rob Van Dam’s debut and Jeff Hardy becoming the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, then showing Hardy and AJ Styles having a stare-down. It continues with footage of Kurt Angle and Ric Flair’s rivalry, including this past Monday when the cage was lowered and Team Flair attacked Team Angle to gain the momentum. We see highlights of other rivalries and matches on the card, before it concludes with a birds-eye view of the steel cage and the faces of Hardy and Styles on top of them.

After some short opening credits, we enter the Arena as the pyro stirs on the stage and the camera circles the audience who are cheering and holding up several signs of all shapes, colours and sizes. The camera hovers over the top of the Steel Cage which surrounds the ring before we cut to ringside where Mike Tenay and his new broadcast partner Mick Foley are sat, ready to welcome us to the show.

Mike Tenay: Thank you for joining us tonight for one of the biggest nights in TNA history! Welcome to Lockdown everybody, I’m Mike Tenay alongside my new broadcast colleague ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley and if there’s anybody who doesn’t know just how much this event means then for starters they can look at the Steel Cage which surrounds the ring but they can also look at tonight’s card!

Mick Foley: You’ve got that right, Professor, and AJ Styles versus Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship will make even an ordinary man’s mouth water! That happens right here tonight, in ‘The Lone-Star State’ of Texas!

Mike Tenay: That’s not all, Mick, because also tonight, it’s the annual Lethal Lockdown Match; it’s Team Angle versus Team Flair! On Team Angle is Kurt Angle himself, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam, and on Team Flair it’s the captain Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino and Samoa Joe!

Mike Tenay: And don’t forget the cocky but talented braggart Mr. Anderson against ‘The Icon’ Sting!

Mike Tenay: I couldn’t possibly forget about them, Taz, the same goes for every match on the card tonight, that’s how excited I am, I’m especially looking forward to the Destination X Re-match for the TNA X Division Championship in an XScape Match!

Mick Foley: Plus, one of my favourite wrestlers ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero defends his TNA Global Championship against none other than ‘The Monster’ Abyss! Without a doubt, Dinero’s biggest challenge to date!

Mike Tenay: Speaking of challenges, the TNA World Tag Team and TNA Knockouts Championships are on the line too! Beer Money defend the titles against The Motor City Machine Guns and Tara puts her gold on the line in a Three Way Dance against Angelina Love and Daffney!

Mick Foley: Also, the leader of the World Elite, Eric Young, is in action against ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry!

And that match is going to happen right now! ‘We Are World Elite’ blares out to heat from the crowd and Eric Young walks out, with the rest of the World Elite at his side. Young, looking pretty confident about his chances here tonight, raises one hand in the air as his pyro goes off before making his way down the ramp and opening the cage door, entering the ring. Then, ‘Freak Out’ plays and the silent but deadly Rob Terry makes his way out to a pop from the crowd, as Terry raises his hands in the air and flexes his muscles accompanied by his pyro before storming down the ramp and entering the Cage, standing opposite Young as Terry looks around the structure and slams his fists against the cage.

Steel Cage Match
Eric Young Vs. Rob Terry
The bell rings and Eric Young and Rob Terry have a stare-down as both men stand in opposite corners, as Terry steps forward, ready to wrestle but Young is almost petrified and instead of wrestling, Eric immediately begins to climb the Cage to try to escape and win this match extremely early! However, Terry is having none of it as he grabs onto Young’s right leg and Eric looks down with a look of horror on his face before continuing to try to climb out of the Cage but Rob pulls Eric down as Young crashes face-first into the mat! ‘The Freak’ gets Young to his feet and he throws Eric into the corner of the ring, stomping away at Young’s mid-section before lifting his leg into the air and pressing his foot against the throat of the leader of the World Elite for several moments. Terry soon stops and Young staggers forward as Rob lifts Young up in a Gorilla Press position and throws him into the side of the cage!! Young is being man-handled by Terry and the Welshman takes a moment to work up the crowd as he flexes his muscles before bending down to get Young to his feet once again, but Young hits Terry with a low-blow! The crowd boo as Terry holds his gut and falls to the mat as Young, who has a smirk on his face, struggles to his feet and capitalizes on the opportunity, repeatedly stomping away at ‘The Freak’ and then getting him in a sleeper hold. Young keeps the sleeper locked in for several moments and Terry looks as if he is fading, but the powerhouse soon makes it to his feet and after a few clubbing blows to the mid-section of Young, Terry runs off the ropes and flattens Young with a thunderous clothesline! Terry makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Young gets the shoulder up.

Terry gets up and gets Young to his feet, as he plants Young with a scoop slam and then begins to climb the cage to try to escape the structure and win the match, but when he is 3/4 of the way up, Young is back on his feet and Eric shakes the side of the Cage as Terry loses his balance and falls to the canvas! Young then runs off the ropes and hits ‘The Freak’ with an elbow drop, subsequently repeating it two more times before getting Terry up and placing his head in between his legs. Young looks at the camera and nods his head before lifting Terry’s legs up, getting him in position for his signature Piledriver, but Rob manages to get his feet back down and he then pushes Young into the ropes. Eric, wanting to get back on track immediately, runs at Rob, but Terry nails Young with a Powerslam!! Terry springs back up and pounds his chest with his fists as he gets Young to his feet and lifts him onto his left shoulder in position for the Running Powerslam, charging forward but fortunately for Young, he slips off and Eric pushes Terry face-first into the cage! Young isn’t done though, as he grabs ‘The Freak’ by his hair and repeatedly slams his skull against the cage, then dragging his forehead from side-to-side until Terry is busted open and Young then lets go as he lets Rob fall to the canvas. Thinking he has the match wrapped up here, Young makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Terry kicks out!

Young cannot believe it as he sits Rob up and prepares to hit him with a blow to the head but Terry grabs Eric by the throat and gets to his feet. When he is up on his feet, Terry, who is still holding onto Young, lifts him up into the air to go for a Chokeslam but Young lands on his feet behind Terry and he hits Terry with a low blow! Terry sinks to his knees and Young bombards his former World Elite ally with a variety of chops, knife-edge chops, open-hand chops, you name it, until Terry’s chest is as crimson as the blood on his face. Young then runs off the ropes and hits Terry with a knee to the skull as Terry goes down and Young covers, 1............ 2............ Terry kicks out, and Young tries to get away... but Terry is holding onto Young! In an amazing display of strength, Terry gets to his feet holding onto Young and he looks around the Dallas Convention Center, letting out a reverberating roar before slamming Eric Young’s spine into the Steel Cage! However, once just isn’t enough for Terry, as he repeatedly slams his spine into the Steel until he then throws Young across the ring with a devastating Fall Away Slam! Terry gets back to his feet and wipes some blood off of his forehead before getting Young back to his feet, Irish whipping him off the ropes and going for a big boot but Eric holds onto the ropes and he then begins to climb the Cage to try to win the match!

That doesn’t go down well with Rob Terry though, and ‘The Freak’ takes back control, lifting Eric Young off the Cage onto his shoulders and then falling backwards, driving Young’s spine and back into the mat! After that, the result of this match becomes clearer and clearer as Terry stomps away at Eric before getting him to his feet and then running off the ropes, nailing Young with a ferocious Big Boot to the cranium! The leader of the World Elite falls to the canvas in a heap and Terry flexes his muscles, throwing his arms out before getting Young back up again and lifting him onto his shoulders, running around the ring before planting Young with a Running Powerslam! The crowd cheer as Terry makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO?! NO! Terry lifts up Young’s shoulders, enabling the match to continue! ‘The Freak’ gets up and walks around the ring with a smirk on his face, sharing the feelings with the crowd who want to see Young punished even more and Rob nods his head with an ear-to-ear grin before getting Young up once more, grabbing Young by the throat, lifting him up into the air, and nailing Young with the Freakbuster! Terry then covers the hapless Young once and for all, 1............ 2............ 3!!!

Winner: Rob Terry at 7:10

‘Freak Out’ plays to a pop from the crowd and Rob Terry has his hand raised by the referee as he wipes the trickling blood from his forehead and looks at it on his hand before nodding his head and then flexing his muscles once more for the Dallas audience. Terry subsequently leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, high-fiving some fans as he heads backstage.

Mike Tenay: Rob Terry has done it! He has disposed of Eric Young and has picked up the biggest victory of his career so far by doing so.

Mick Foley: I have to applaud Eric Young for trying to win that match Professor, but there was never any way that Young could stop Rob Terry from trampling over him like a freight train, especially without his World Elite to back him up.

Mike Tenay: The future certainly looks bright for ‘The Freak’, but what does the future hold for Eric Young and just as important, the World Elite?

Backstage, Mr. Anderson is walking in circles around his locker room with Sting’s blood-stained black baseball bat in his hand which we haven’t seen over the past few weeks as he stares it whilst walking around, trying to prepare for his match later tonight against ‘The Icon’ Sting.

TNA SACRIFICE – MAY 16TH – DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA

------

Back in the Arena, ‘Take A Fall’ blares out to a mixed reaction from the Dallas crowd and the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money make their way out on the Boozer Cruiser as always. James Storm, with a smirk on his face not caring about the fact that he smashed a beer bottle over Chris Sabin’s skull a few weeks ago, happily drives down the ramp with Roode standing on the back as Storm takes one last swig of beer before the duo enter the steel cage structure. Then, ‘Motorcity’ plays to a big pop and The Motor City Machine Guns walk out... with machine guns! That’s right; tonight is a special night and Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin celebrate the occasion by spraying bullets into the air before walking down the ramp, high-fiving the fans before entering the Cage, Sabin impatient to get started so that he can get his hands on Storm.

Steel Cage Match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship
Beer Money © Vs The Motor City Machine Guns
As soon as the bell rings, the tension inside the Steel Cage soars, and Chris Sabin charges right towards James Storm, taking him down to the mat and unloading on him with relentless punches to the face! The capacity crowd in Dallas chant ‘Let’s Go, Sabin!’ but they boo when Robert Roode pulls Sabin away by his legs, then beginning to stomp away at him until Alex Shelley kicks Roode in the mid-section and bombards him with right hands, Irish whipping him off the ropes and hitting him with a back body drop! With Roode down, Sabin and Shelley begin to double-team Storm, Sabin pressing his boot against Storm’s throat with immense force and Shelley stomping him in the gut and they get Storm to his feet, setting him up in the corner of the ring as Shelley walks into the opposite corner. With Sabin down on all fours, Shelley runs forward, looking to use Sabin as a springboard to go crashing into Storm, but their plan is foiled when Roode, now back on his feet, runs across the ring and almost takes Shelley’s head off with a thunderous clothesline! Shelley rolls into the corner of the ring as Sabin gets back up and runs at Roode but ‘The Wall Street Wizard’ kicks him in the mid-section and plants him with a neckbreaker! As Storm begins to climb the Cage to try to get out, Roode covers Sabin, 1............ 2............ Sabin gets the shoulder up.

Roode then gets Sabin in a headlock, rendering the high-flyer docile as Storm is half-way up the Cage when Shelley is just making it to his feet and when he sees Storm, he runs across the ring and jumps onto the side of the Cage, latching onto it as he climbs up in pursuit of ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ and Storm is at the top of the Cage but Shelley grabs his foot and pulls himself up, grabbing Storm by his hair and hitting him with right hands until he is back in the Cage. Meanwhile, Roode gets Sabin to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, then charging towards him, but Sabin hits Roode with a boot to the face and he then follows up with a bulldog. With Shelley and Storm back on the canvas, Sabin and Shelley run at Storm and take him down to the mat with a double-clothesline, and when Storm manages to sit himself up, Sabin and Shelley nail him with a double Superkick, before Sabin covers, 1............ 2............ Storm kicks out. As Shelley keeps Roode in the corner of the ring, Sabin gets Storm to his feet and hits him with a few right hands, before grabbing him by his hair and dragging across the ring, throwing Storm into the side of the Cage as Storm tastes the steel before falling to the mat!

Sabin then follows up by hitting him with a standing Moonsault, before going over to Shelley and helping him with Roode, as they get him to his feet and set him up in the corner. Sabin gets down on all fours and Shelley backs away, before sprinting forward and using Sabin as a springboard as he flies into Roode, but Roode moves out of the way as Shelley crashes into the Cage, landing in a very awkward position on the canvas! Sabin gets up and runs at Roode, but he kicks him in the mid-section and plants him with a DDT! Roode gets to his feet and helps Storm up, as they get Sabin up and lift him up in position for the DWI, but Shelley gets back up and causes Storm to face-plant into the mat with a dropkick to the legs and Sabin sends Roode face-first into the Steel Cage with a hurricanrana! Roode bounces off the Cage and groggily staggers backwards, as Sabin hits him with a Russian Leg Sweep before covering, 1............ 2............ Roode gets the shoulder up! Alex Shelley hits James Storm with right hands and then Irish whips him off the ropes, as Shelley goes for the dropkick but ends up making a fool of himself as he dropkicks thin air with Storm holding onto the ropes, and with Alex in a seated position, Storm runs towards him and goes for a kick to the head, but Shelley ducks it and then pins Storm with a Schoolboy! 1............ 2............ Storm kicks out!

Both competitors get back up to their feet, and Storm kicks Shelley in the mid-section, getting him in a front face-lock and lifting him up into the air, walking around the ring whilst holding onto Shelley as a display of power but Sabin, on the top rope, flies through the air and hits Storm with a missile dropkick, and Shelley nails him with a DDT in mid-air for good measure! Sabin then begins to climb the Cage to try to escape, but Robert Roode is back up, and he begins to climb as well, and both men make it to the top of the Cage. In a very precarious position to say the least, Roode and Sabin trade right hands on top of the Cage until Roode gains the upper hand in the exchange and he slams Sabin’s face into the part of the Cage they are sitting on, making him very groggy, and Roode then does it again, and Sabin falls off the top of the Cage, but luckily for him, James Storm is getting to his feet directly below him, and Sabin lands on Storm!! There are chants of “Holy Sh*t! Holy Sh*t!” in the Dallas Convention Center as Sabin lies on top of Storm after falling from the top of the Cage, and even Roode is stunned as he looks down at them, but then he remembers the task at hand; escaping the Cage. However, Shelley is now climbing the Cage and with Roode taking a while to adjust his position so that he can get out, Shelley gets to the top of the Cage and grabs Roode by his hair, hitting him with right hands and not letting him go anywhere.

Roode and Shelley are in the same position that Roode and Sabin were a few moments ago when Sabin was thrown from the top of the Cage onto James Storm, and this time it’s the Motor City Machine Guns who prevail in the exchange, as Shelley hits Roode with one powerful forearm, and Roode falls off, landing on the ring-ropes in a very bad position! Now Shelley is up there alone, and he quickly climbs over the Cage, making his way down and successfully escaping! But, it is a bittersweet moment of sorts for the ‘Machine Guns because now, Chris Sabin is alone in the Steel Cage with James Storm and Robert Roode. Sabin and Storm are now on their feet and they exchange right hands until Storm Irish whips Sabin into the ropes and bends down, preparing to hit a back body drop, but Sabin leap-frogs ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ and then begins to climb the Cage! However, Sabin’s conquest doesn’t last long though, as Storm grabs Sabin’s legs and pulls him back as Sabin lands on his back on the mat and Storm runs off the ropes, hitting Sabin with a knee drop before applying a sleeper hold onto him. The crowd get behind Sabin and chant “Let’s Go, Sabin!” and Sabin desperately tries to escape the sleeper hold, managing to make it to his feet but he collapses again as Storm continues to keep him in the sleeper. The next time Sabin gets up, he escapes after a few elbows to Storm’s mid-section and Sabin then goes to back into the ropes behind him, but he backs into Robert Roode, now back on his feet, and he turns Sabin around, lifting him up in a Flapjack as Sabin’s face goes into the Steel!

Sabin falls back to the canvas, but Roode is far from done, as he mercilessly gets Sabin back to his feet and grabs him by his hair, pressing his face into the unforgiving steel and dragging his flesh across it before letting go when Sabin is busted open. Roode then begins to climb the Cage, and with nobody able to stop him, Roode successfully gets out of the Cage, and it is now down to Chris Sabin and James Storm inside the Steel Cage. Storm is on his feet and he gets Sabin up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and then lifting him to the top rope. Storm climbs up there and gets Sabin in a front face-lock, preparing to hit a Superplex, but Sabin fights out of it after a few shots to the mid-section, and he then pushes Storm off the top rope down to the mat, before climbing the Cage once again! Sabin is at the top of the Cage, and he looks down on the outside where Robert Roode has a Steel Chair in hand and he yells at Sabin ‘You’re not going anywhere!’ and he then looks down on the inside where Storm is getting to his feet, before looking around the Dallas Convention Center with a look of defiance on his face, and flying from the top of the Cage, hitting Storm with a Cross Body! The crowd cheer like made and chant ‘This is awesome!’ and ‘TNA!’ as Sabin and Storm both lie motionlessly on the mat until Sabin lays an arm over Storm, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Storm gets the shoulder up just in time!

Sabin cannot believe it, he thought he had the match won then and there, and he ever-s0 slowly struggles to his feet, getting Storm up as well and managing to lift him onto the back of his shoulders but ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ quickly fights out of it, getting back down to the mat in front of Sabin and kicking him in the mid-section, hooking his arms and nailing Sabin with a Double-Underhook Suplex! Storm then covers Sabin as quick as he can, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Sabin kicks out!! The crowd cheer as Storm, on his knees, runs his hand through his sweat-soaked hair and looks in disbelief at the referee Mike Posey before getting to his feet and taking the time to raise his hands in the air and shout ‘BEER!’ with Roode on the outside shouting ‘MONEY!’ alongside some of the fans, but some of the other fans shout ‘SUCK!’ which doesn’t please the TNA World Tag Team Champions. Storm yells at them to ‘Shut your stinkin’ mouths!’ before he tells Roode to give him some beer. Roode takes a bottle of beer and throws it over the Cage and into the ring, as Storm successfully catches it and waits for Chris Sabin to get to his feet so he can smash a beer bottle over his head again.

Sabin eventually gets to his feet and as he turns around, Storm swings the beer bottle at him but Sabin ducks it, rolling forward and then hitting Storm with an enzuguiri as ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ falls to the canvas, ever-so gently dropping the beer bottle. Sabin sees the bottle and picks it up, looking around the cheering crowd with a grin on his face before eagerly waiting for James Storm to get up, as the tables have now been turned. Storm struggles to his feet with assistance from the ropes, and when he turns around, Sabin unforgivingly smashes the beer bottle over Storm’s skull, busting Storm open instantly! The crowd go nuts as Storm falls to the mat after being struck with his own beer bottle, but Sabin isn’t done yet, as he gets Storm back up and lifts him onto his shoulders, nailing Storm with the Cradle Shock!!! Sabin then covers, 1............ 2............ 3!!!
Winners and NEW TNA World Tag Team Champions: The Motor City Machine Guns at 13:12

WE HAVE NEW TNA WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!! ‘Motorcity’ blares out to a HUGE pop from the crowd and an exhausted and bleeding Chris Sabin struggles to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee before Alex Shelley collects their titles and enters the ring through the Cage door, embracing with Sabin and holding up the TNA World Tag Team Champions which have alluded them for three long years. The new Champions leave the Cage and celebrate their victory with the fans, high-fiving dozens of them as they walk up the ramp before departing.

Mike Tenay: What a moment for TNA, and what a moment for The Motor City Machine Guns! They have waited for three long years for this, but they’ve finally done it, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin are the new TNA World Tag Team Champions!

Mick Foley: That was bloody, that was brutal, but for Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin it was all worth it, Professor! And being a hardcore expert myself, I can safely say that match was pretty damn good. I faced Sabin in a Hardcore match last month and he really took me to the limit, so I only have good things to say about him, Mike.

Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by, in front of Ric Flair and the rest of Team Flair.

Christy Hemme: Hello, I’m Christy Hemme and I’m alongside ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair and his team who will compete against Kurt Angle and the rest of Team Angle in the Lethal Lockdown match tonight. Ric-

Ric abruptly takes the microphone out of Christy’s hand and tells her to clear off.

Ric Flair: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mixed reaction, as an unimpressed Christy watches from the sidelines with her arms crossed.

Ric Flair: Kurt Angle! It all comes to an end tonight, my friend, THREE MONTHS in the making! It all ends tonight between you and me, but more importantly it ends tonight for YOU!

All four members of Team Flair nod their heads in agreement.

Ric Flair: Kurt, you haven’t been worth a DIME over the past few years here, and being in the same ring as a 16-TIME ... 16! 16-TIME WORLD CHAMPION, was the greatest accomplishment of your entire career!

Another mixed reaction.

Ric Flair: But after tonight, when you and your ‘team’ get your asses whooped by Team Flair, the greatest-assembled team since THE HORSEMEN...

Big pop at the mention of the Horsemen.

Ric Flair: You’ll be right back down at the bottom of the barrel, where you belong!

The team captain Desmond Wolfe then steps forward, taking the microphone.

Desmond Wolfe: Kurt, your motives for picking your team fascinate me, they really do. Let’s see... you have Rob Van Dam, a past-his-prime junkie who doesn’t deserve to even hang my coat on a wall, that’s right, Rob, put that in your pot and smoke it... you have Hernandez, whose mother doesn’t even think he’s special... you have Jeff Jarrett, who only founded this company so that he could be loved, much like all of these window lickers in Dallas, Texas who will never be loved...

Heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: And then there’s you, Kurt Angle, and I’m not going to waste my breath going through all of the bad things about you.

Christy Hemme: Are you guys-

Ric Flair: SHUT UP!

Mixed reaction for Flair, with some of the fans laughing.

Desmond Wolfe: And then you look at our team. We have Samoa Joe, who is exactly what he says he is, a submission machine who can tear arms and legs off anybody he pleases... we have Matt Morgan, a giant with a boot as good as my fist... we have Rhino, who doesn’t take crap from anybody, especially wankers like the TNA fans...

More heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: And then you have me, a technical artist who has more moves and holds than Kurt Angle has fake medals. Oh, it’s real, Kurt... it’s damn real.

Ric Flair: WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Flair flashes the Four Horsemen gesture at the camera before he and his team walk out of the shot.

Back in the ring, ‘Girlfriend’ plays to a pop from the crowd and Angelina Love walks out, waving to the fans as she jogs down the ramp, high-fiving one or two fans before entering the Steel Cage through the door. Then, ‘Scream’ blares out and the psychotic Daffney walks through the curtain, getting heat from the crowd. With Dr. Stevie behind her, Daffney makes her way down the ramp and pauses to scream in some fans’ faces before entering the ring. Last but not least, ‘Broken’ plays and the TNA Knockouts Champion Tara walks out to cheers from the crowd, pointing to Love and Daffney inside the Cage before pointing to her title around her waist and striding down the ramp, removing her title and entering the Cage.

Steel Cage Three Way Dance for the TNA Knockouts Championship
Angelina Love Vs Daffney Vs Tara
The bell rings for this Steel Cage Three Way Dance for the TNA Knockouts Championship to begin, and Daffney is immediately singled out as Angelina Love and Tara, albeit temporarily as it’s every woman for themselves in this match, join forces in an attempt to take Daffney out of the match, taking her down with a double-clothesline before dragging her into the corner of the ring and stomping away at ‘The Zombie Queen’ until they get her up and hit Daffney with a double-Suplex! After that, Daffney rolls over to the corner of the ring and now it’s Angelina and Tara face-to-face. The anticipation in the Dallas Convention Center builds and the crowd begin to cheer as Love and Tara engage in a good ol’ lock-up and Tara gets Angelina in a standing head-lock. Love pushes Tara into the ropes and then lies down on the mat as Tara jumps over her, and when the TNA Knockouts Champion comes back again, Love hits her with a clothesline. Angelina covers, 1............ 2... Daffney breaks it up. Back in the match, Daffney hits Angelina with a stiff kick to the mid-section which turns her over onto her back and she recurrently stomps on her gut until she gets her to her feet and Irish whips her into the corner of the ring. Daffney runs at her but Tara gets in her way and takes her down with a clothesline before then running at Love but the former member of the Beautiful People moves out of the way as Tara manages to stop herself before running directly into the turnbuckles, but when she turns around, Angelina lifts her up and plants her on the canvas with a scoop slam. Angelina covers again, 1............ 2......... Tara gets the shoulder up.

Love gets to her feet and then targets Daffney, getting her up and getting her in a front face-lock, trying to lift ‘The Queen of Scream’ off her feet for a suplex but Daffney fights out of it and then shows her flexibility, knocking Angelina out with a kick to the head before covering, 1............ 2............ Tara breaks up the count. If it wasn’t for Tara breaking up that cover, Daffney could have won the match and become TNA Knockouts Champion without the Champion being pinned, and an angry Daffney gets to her feet, running at Tara but she is taken down by a drop toe hold and Tara then gets on top of her, grabbing her by her hair as she repeatedly slams Daffney’s head against the mat until she eventually gets off and gets Daffney to her feet, trying to throw her into the Steel Cage but Daffney reverses it as Tara only goes into the ropes, and Daffney lifts Tara up into the air before letting her fall back down to the mat on her stomach, then covering, 1............ 2............ Angelina Love breaks it up this time, re-entering the match after receiving a kick to the head from Daffney. Angelina, still feeling the effects of the kick, gets Daffney up and Irish whips her into the corner, then following up with a clothesline before climbing to the second rope and grabbing Daffney by the hair, hitting her with ten punches before posing for the crowd, but Tara is back on her feet and she walks over to the corner, lifting Love up and hitting her with a Powerbomb! That has to be it now, as Tara makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Daffney breaks up the count!

Daffney pulls Tara away by her legs and covers Angelina herself, 1............ 2............ Tara pulls Daffney away and goes to cover again, 1............ Daffney, instead of pulling Tara away, kicks her in the mid-section as she rolls into the corner of the ring, and Daffney then gets Angelina Love to her feet, getting her in a front face-lock and lifting her into the air, keeping Angelina in the air upside down for a few moments for extra effect before dropping Love on her head with a delayed vertical suplex! Daffney then begins to slowly climb the Cage, trying to win the match a different way, but Tara is now on her feet and she climbs onto the ropes, pulling Daffney back by her hair as both Tara and Daffney fall back down to the mat! Now, all three competitors in this TNA Knockouts Championship Three Way Dance are down and out, and the first to get up is Tara, who slowly gets Angelina up and puts her head in between her legs, lifting her up for the Widow’s Peak but Love slips out of her grasps and grabs Tara by her hair, pulling her back and hitting her with a reverse DDT! Love makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Tara kicks out! Daffney is now back up, and she is eager to get back in the thick of things, but she is taken down by a dropkick from Angelina and Love then gets Tara back up. Love lifts her up for a Scoop Slam, but Tara slips out of Angelina’s grasps and lands on her feet behind Love, hitting her with a back suplex and then running off the ropes, hitting her with an elbow drop.

Tara then turns her attentions to Daffney and she gets her to her feet, putting her head in between her legs and trying to lift her up for the Widow’s Peak, but Daffney refuses, keeping her feet on the mat, and ‘The Queen of Scream’ manages to reverse it, taking Tara up into the air and back down with a back body drop. Angelina is back up, and she runs at Daffney but Daffney nails Love with the Daff Knees before making the cover, as Tara just begins to get to her feet, 1............ 2............ Tara goes to break it up... 3!!!
Winner and NEW TNA Knockouts Champion: Daffney at 6:48

‘Scream’ blares out to heat from the crowd and an ecstatic Daffney gets to her feet, raising her hands in the air as Dr. Stevie enters the Cage and embraces with Daffney, giving her the TNA Knockouts Championship which she proudly raises in the air with a sadistic grin on her face, before the duo leave the Cage, walking up the ramp back to the locker room as Tara, who was a split-second away from preventing the three-count, watches on with a poignant scowl.

Mike Tenay: First we crown new TNA World Tag Team Champions in The Motor City Machine Guns, and now we have a new TNA Knockouts Champion in Daffney!

Mick Foley: Like her or not, congratulations are in order for Daffney, Professor!

Mike Tenay: You just saw what the Knockouts division is all about, ladies and gentlemen; tight competition, will to win and desire to inflict pain.

Mick Foley: And those are just a few characteristics of our new TNA Knockouts Champion!

Backstage, Eric Young is limping down a corridor towards the locker room, holding his head after losing to Rob Terry in the opening contest tonight, when Young is confronted by his old friend, Kevin Nash.

Kevin Nash: Tough luck tonight, huh?

A disgruntled Young nods his head.

Kevin Nash: Y’know, maybe this whole World Elite thing isn’t for the best, Eric, I mean, it hasn’t really got you anywhere. Those other guys have only been holding you back, and I think it’s time you call it quits.

Young looks up at Nash, before sighing.

Eric Young: Y’know what? I think you’re right, Kev. I’m better than them, I shouldn’t have to keep carrying their weight around here.

Kevin Nash: You’re right. Come on, Eric, I’ve got something to show you, I forgot I had it a while ago...

Young and Nash walk away, presumably to Nash’s locker room to show Eric something...

------------

Back in the Dallas Convention Center, it is now time for the XScape Match for the TNA X Division Championship. ‘Red Remix’ blares out and the former TNA X Division Champion Amazing Red walks out to a pop from the crowd, with Don West in tow. Red makes his way down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before entering the Cage. Then, ‘I Have A Plan’ plays to a mixed reaction and Brian Kendrick walks out, storming down the ramp and throwing off his white jacket before entering the Cage. ‘Pomp And Circumstance’ hits to a pop from the crowd and ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal makes his way out, walking down the ramp and stepping into the Cage. Then, ‘Kaz’ sounds off and the man that some feel is next in line to become X Division Champion, Kazarian, walks out, posing for the crowd before striding down the ramp and entering the cage. ‘D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F’ plays and the unorthodox ‘Prince Of Punk’ Shannon Moore walks through the curtain, jogging down the ramp and entering the Cage and last but not least, ‘Wings Of A Fallen Angel’ blares out and the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels walks out, flicking his hood back on his black jacket and revealing his face, grinning as ‘The Fallen Angel’ walks down the ramp and enters the Cage, the cage door shut behind him.

XScape Match for the TNA X Division Championship
Christopher Daniels © Vs Amazing Red Vs Brian Kendrick Vs Jay Lethal Vs Kazarian Vs Shannon Moore
The bell rings, and as soon as it does chaos ensues inside the Steel Cage, as Chistopher Daniels and Amazing Red, Brian Kendrick and Jay Lethal and Kazarian and Shannon Moore all have separate altercations. Daniels immediately kicks Red in the mid-section and hooks his arms, trying to eliminate Red early on with the Angel’s Wings but Red counters with a back body drop and when Daniels gets back up, Red hits ‘The Fallen Angel’ with a wheelbarrow bulldog! After that, Red begins to climb the Cage, even though he can’t win this match right now by escaping the Cage, but he gets to the top and he sees Kendrick, Lethal, Kazarian and Moore bunched up and fighting and Daniels getting to his feet, and Red flies off the top of the Cage with a Senton Bomb, taking out all of the other five competitors in the match!! The crowd chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ as all six wrestlers in this match are laid out on the canvas and we see several action replays of that death-defying leap from Amazing Red. The first one to get back to his feet is Red and he gets Moore to his feet, Irish whipping him into the ropes and then going for a roundhouse kick in mid-air but Moore ducks it, runs off the ropes again, and hits Red with a spinning heel kick! Moore quickly makes the cover, 1............ 2...... Red kicks out. Moore gets back up and the other competitors in the match are back on their feet now too.

Jay Lethal and Moore begin to trade blows and Lethal kicks Moore in the mid-section, Irish whipping him into the ropes and running at Moore, but ‘The Prince Of Punk’ hangs on the ropes and hits ‘Black Machismo’ with a double-foot dropkick, then running out of the corner and hitting Lethal with a legdrop lariat! Moore gets back up, but Kendrick hits Shannon with a Russian leg sweep and then runs off the ropes, but this time the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels gets in the way, hitting Kendrick with a back body drop. Daniels then sees Kazarian running towards him and ‘The Fallen Angel’ swings a kick at Kazarian but he catches his foot and spins Daniels around, as he goes for another kick but Kazarian ducks out of the way of it and then kicks Daniels in the gut, getting him in a front face-lock and lifting him into the air, but instead of hitting a suplex he drops him on his front on the ring-ropes, with very little space in between the ropes and the Cage, and now it looks like Daniels is stuck in between the ropes and the Cage! The crowd cheer as ‘The Fallen Angel’ throws a fit, shouting ‘Let me out of here!’ repeatedly, but the other five competitors in this XScape Match show the Champion no mercy, as Kendrick runs off the opposite ropes and charges across the ropes, hitting Daniels with a dropkick to the gut!

Then, Shannon Moore stands in front of Christopher Daniels and taunts him, before hitting him right in the face with a spinning heel kick and then Jay Lethal gets down on his knees as Amazing Red runs off the ropes and uses Lethal as a springboard, hitting Daniels with a Corkscrew Dropkick! Kazarian then runs from one corner of the ring to the other, jumping to the top rope and then flying off, hitting ‘The Fallen Angel’ with a missile dropkick! Daniels is still stuck as the fighting continues, and Kendrick and Moore double-team Red whilst Lethal and Kazarian do battle, and when Red is hit with multiple stomps by Kendrick and Moore, Kendrick cuts off their temporary alliance by taking him by his neck, jumping to the top rope and hitting ‘The Prince Of Punk’ with Sliced Bread #2! Kendrick then makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3!!! Moore is gone!

Elimination #1: Shannon Moore at 3:11

The first elimination in this TNA X Division Championship XScape Match is made courtesy of Brian Kendrick, and Kendrick rolls Shannon Moore out of the ring through the cage door, but when he turns around, he is taken down by a clothesline from Amazing Red who then runs off the ropes and nails Kendrick with a Standing Shooting Star Press! Red covers Kendrick, 1............ 2........... Kendrick gets the shoulder up! Red gets back up as Kendrick is temporarily out of action, but Christopher Daniels is back in the match after escaping from his precarious position in between the ropes and the Cage, and he almost takes Red’s head off with a clothesline! Jay Lethal and Kazarian are fighting on the other side of the ring and Kazarian has Lethal in the corner of the ring and he lifts Lethal to the top rope, then climbing up there himself and getting ‘Black Machismo’ in a front face-lock, preparing to go for the Superplex but Daniels gets Kazarian in position for a Powerbomb and then Kendrick joins in, getting Daniels on the back of his shoulders, and then all four of them come crashing down to the mat with the Tower of Doom! The crowd chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ like only they know how as Daniels, Lethal, Kazarian and Kendrick lie in a heap on the mat and Amazing Red, having missed out on that incident, gets to his feet and gets Lethal up, kicking him in the mid-section and running off the ropes, before getting in position, and nailing Lethal with the Code Red!! Red immediately hooks Lethal’s legs and makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3!!! Jay Lethal has been eliminated!

Elimination #2: Jay Lethal at 4:32

Jay Lethal is the second man in this match to take the walk of shame as he eventually gets to his feet and leaves the ring, and we are now down to four; Amazing Red, Brian Kendrick, Christopher Daniels and Kazarian. Daniels, Kazarian and Kendrick are now all back on their feet after the Tower Of Doom, and on one side of the ring are the faces, Kazarian and Red, and on the other side are the heels, Daniels and Kendrick. Daniels and Kazarian begin to fight, trading blows, and Kendrick and Red do the same, as Kendrick kicks Red in the mid-section and takes him down with a snapmare, then running off the ropes and hitting Red with a stiff-looking kick to the spine! Kazarian Irish whips Daniels into the corner and runs at him but Daniels kicks Kazarian in the face and he then throws Kazarian face-first into the Cage! Kazarian falls back to the canvas and Kendrick then wraps his hand around Daniels’ head and jumps to the top rope, going for the Sliced Bread #2 which eliminated Shannon Moore from this match but he fails to connect and when Daniels turns around, Kendrick goes to kick him but Daniels catches his leg. Kendrick has another plan though, and with his free leg he hits ‘The Fallen Angel’ with an enzuiguri!

Amazing Red is back on his feet now, and he hits Kendrick with some right hands and kicks, then running off the ropes and going for a hurricanrana, but Kendrick holds onto Red’s legs and sends Red spine-first into the Cage with a Powerbomb! Kazarian is back on his feet and he lifts Kendrick up, hitting him with a Scoop Slam and then running towards the ropes, jumping onto them and hitting Kendrick with a Springboard Moonsault! Kazarian covers Kendrick, 1............ 2............ Kendrick kicks out! Kazarian gets to his feet and shifts his attention to the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels, wrenching his arm and going for a kick but Daniels ducks it and hits Kazarian with a back suplex. ‘The Fallen Angel’ then walks over to the corner of the ring and jumps to the second rope and then to the top rope, looking like he’s going to go for the Best Moonsault Ever... but then it looks like he has a change of mind, and Daniels climbs even further, reaching the top of the Cage! At the top of the structure, Daniels shouts ‘I am the X Division!’ before flying off the top of the Cage, attempting a Moonsault... but Kazarian moves out of the way, as Christopher Daniels crashes and burns on the canvas!!

Mike Tenay shouts ‘WHAAAAT?!’ as Daniels motionlessly lies face-down on the mat after missing a Moonsault from the top of the Steel Cage, and Kazarian struggles to his feet, as Amazing Red runs at him and Kazarian goes for a Tilt-a-whirl Backbreaker but Red counters it into a headscissors and Kazarian goes into the Cage, not making much contact but Red runs off the ropes and charges across the ring, hitting Kazarian with a dropkick from behind and sending Kazarian face-first into the steel! Kendrick then attacks Red from behind and Irish whips him into the ropes, ducking down in position to hit a back body drop, but Red counters it, and hits Kendrick with the Code Red! Red then covers Kendrick, hooking the legs, 1............ 2............ 3!!!

Elimination #3: Brian Kendrick at 7:38

Brian Kendrick is gone, and now it’s down to three competitors with Amazing Red, the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels, who is still down after missing the Moonsault from the top of the Cage, and Kazarian left in the match. Red gets back to his feet and gets Kazarian up, getting him in a front face-lock and trying to lift him up for a suplex but it doesn’t work, and Kazarian counters, lifting up Red himself and successfully executing a suplex, before climbing to the top rope and posing for the crowd before flying off the top rope and nailing Red with a leg drop! Kazarian then makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Red gets the shoulder up! Kazarian gets back up and he sees Christopher Daniels struggling to get his feet in the corner of the ring, so Kazarian goes over to the corner. He gets Daniels in position for the Wave Of The Future, but Daniels fights out of it and kicks Kazarian in the mid-section, then running off the ropes and hitting Kazarian with the STO! The TNA X Division Champion makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Kazarian kicks out! Daniels gets back up and Red is now getting up. Daniels gets Red in the corner and lifts him up to the top rope, then climbing up there himself and getting him in position for a Superplex, but Red fights back and pushes him back down to the canvas. Red looks around the Arena, before going for the Red Star Press... but Daniels moves out of the way, and Red crashes into the mat!

Christopher Daniels then struggles to his feet and he sees Amazing Red down after missing that Red Star Press, getting him to his feet, putting his head between his legs, hooking his arms, and hitting Red with the Angel’s Wings! Daniels, feeling the effects of this gruelling match especially after attempting and ultimately missing a Moonsault from the top of the Cage, struggles to his feet and walks over to the corner of the ring, jumping to the second rope and then to the top rope, nailing Red with the Best Moonsault Ever! Daniels clutches his ribs after hitting the BME, but he manages to hook Red’s legs and make the cover, 1............ 2............ 3!!!

Elimination #4: Amazing Red at 9:28

It is now down to the final two competitors in this XScape Match, the TNA X Division Champion ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels and Kazarian, and the objective now is to escape the Steel Cage in order to win this match and walk out of Dallas, Texas as the TNA X Division Champion. Daniels begins to get to his feet, as does Kazarian, and they approach the middle of the ring, having a heated stare-down as they talk trash to each other, staking their claim to win this match, and Daniels goes hit him with a right hand, but Kazarian catches it, and he then begins to unload on ‘The Fallen Angel’ with right hands! Kazarian Irish whips Daniels into the ropes, and hits Daniels with a Powerslam, looking like he’s going to go for the cover on Daniels, but Kazarian knows that he has to escape the Cage to win the match and become the new TNA X Division Champion. Kazarian slowly gets to his feet and he walks towards the Cage, beginning to climb it, but the exhaustion he must be feeling after this helacious match takes its toll on him, as he can barely climb the Cage, and the time he takes enables Christopher Daniels to get to his feet. Kazarian sees Daniels up, and instead of continuing to climb, he flies off the Cage onto Daniels, taking him down with a Cross Body!! It is back to square one now, as both Daniels and Kazarian are laid out on the canvas, and remain in that position for several moments.

Eventually, Daniels and Kazarian get back to their feet, and they sluggishly exchange blows, both running off the ropes and charging towards each other, but it was never going to end well, and it doesn’t, as Daniels and Kazarian both hit each other with clotheslines, as they go down to the mat again! It is another long wait for the final two competitors in this match to get up, and the fans are rooting for both Daniels and Kazarian, some chanting ‘Let’s Go, Kaz!’ at the top of their lungs but some chanting ‘Fallen Angel!’ with the same enthusiasm. Daniels and Kazarian get up, but instead of continuing to fight, they both begin to climb the Cage on opposite sides of the ring! It is now effectively a race to see who escapes the Cage and hits the floor first, and it could go either way as Daniels and Kazarian both reach the top of the Cage at more or less the same time, beginning to climb down as the anticipation rises to see who will win and walk out as TNA X Division Champion at the same time, and both Daniels and Kazarian’s feet hit the floor... at the same time!
Winner: Draw at 16:01

There is an aura of confusion in the Dallas Convention Center as Daniels and Kazarian both sink to the floor, battered and exhausted, and now all eyes are on the ring announcer David Penzer to make the official announcement regarding the outcome of this match.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, the result of this match... is a DRAW!

Mixed reaction from the crowd.

David Penzer: And I have been informed that as a result of this... in the "interest of fairness"... Christopher Daniels and Kazarian... are now CO-TNA X DIVISION CHAMPIONS!!

Another mixed reaction, and Christopher Daniels is shocked and livid that he has to share his TNA X Division Championship with Kazarian. Daniels immediately gets up and takes the title from the announce table, then running away with the belt clutched to his chest as Kazarian gets to his feet and runs around the ring, sprinting up the ramp as fast as he can in pursuit of the other co-X Division Champion.

Mike Tenay: Christopher Daniels and Kazarian are CO-TNA X Division Champions?! What?!

Mick Foley: I’m as surprised as you are, Mike, and some people may disagree but I think Daniels has a right to feel hard done by, having to share the title with Kazarian.

Mike Tenay: It’s been a night of ectasy and controversy here at Lockdown, and we’ve got a lot more to come tonight, Team Angle against Team Flair in Lethal Lockdown and AJ Styles defending the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Jeff Hardy!

Mick Foley: And coming up next, my favourite wrestler “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero defends the TNA Global Championship against “The Monster” Abyss!

Mike Tenay: But first, let’s hear from “The Pope”.

Jeremy Borash is standing by backstage with TNA Global Champion “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero.

Jeremy Borash: Thanks guys, I’m standing by with the TNA Global Champion “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero who in a few short moments will face his biggest challenge to date when he puts his title on the line against “The Monster” Abyss and Pope, do you think you can win tonight?

D’Angelo Dinero: Jerry, Jerry... when Pope says he can defeat Abyss tonight, he means it, and when the congregation rise to their feet and sing in unison “Pope is pimpin’” they mean that too.

Cheers from the crowd.

D’Angelo Dinero: Abyss... sorry that Pope couldn’t think of a better name for you, but you wanna talk about becoming a monster again and crushing every single person in your path? Well you’ve come barking up the wrong tree, my friend, because Pope is not every single person, y’see he is the charismatic...

The crowd pop, knowing what Dinero’s going to say.

D’Angelo Dinero: PIMPTACULAR... HAND-CLAPPIN’... FOOT TAPPIN’... PIMP-SLAPPIN’... BLINGIN’ ATTIRE... ALWAYS ON FIRE... POPE THAT IS D’ANGELO... DINERO!!

Huge pop.

D’Angelo Dinero: Oh, don’t forget this TNA Global Championship either, and Abyss... this ain’t goin’ no-where. Pope has spoken.

Pope walks out of the picture, to a big pop.

Back in the Arena, ‘Down In The Catacombs’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Abyss walks out, his jacket hood casting a shadow over his face as he throws his arms into the air and fire ascends from the stage. Abyss walks down the ramp and enters the Cage, posing again for the crowd before waiting for his opponent. Then, ‘Catholifunk’ plays to a huge pop and the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero walks through the curtain, wearing his shades, bandana, face-mask, trenchcoat and title around his waist. The uber-charismatic Dinero saunters down the ramp, stopping and stretching his arms out as money falls from the ceiling of the Dallas Convention Center before looking up at the Steel Cage that he will be locked inside with a monster in just a few moments, but the defiant Dinero continues to walk, entering the Cage and removing his entrance attire and title, holding it up for all to see before giving it to the official.

Steel Cage Match for the TNA Global Championship
D’Angelo Dinero© Vs Abyss
The bell rings and Abyss lets out a loud roar with his arms thrown out, whereas D’Angelo Dinero stands still whilst he looks at his gargantuan opponent. Abyss and Dinero approach the center of the ring and they lock up, but it is obviously a mis-match and that is shown when Abyss pushes ‘The Pope’ back into the corner of the ring, catching Dinero off guard as he walks towards Abyss again and they lock up. Abyss forces Dinero into the corner of the ring and the TNA Global Champion tries to fight back, hitting Abyss with right hands which only does little damage and he then kicks ‘The Monster’ in the mid-section which does a bit more. Dinero then climbs to the top rope and goes for a cross body, perhaps a little to early, but he is caught in mid-air by Abyss, and Abyss hoists him onto his shoulder, running across the ring and looking to ram Dinero face-first into the steel, but Dinero slips off Abyss’ shoulders at the last second and then pushes him into the steel! Luckily for Dinero, Abyss doesn’t go backwards and Dinero grabs him by the air, dragging his face up and down across the steel until he lets go and Abyss goes down! With Abyss grounded, Dinero takes advantage, stomping away at him and subsequently running off the ropes, going for a knee drop, but Abyss rolls out of the way as Dinero misses and Abyss gets up, grabbing Dinero by the throat! However, Dinero gets out of jail again with a few kicks to the mid-section and he runs off the ropes, charging towards Abyss but in the end ‘The Pope’ is flattened by a clothesline from Abyss!

Abyss lets out a reverberating roar before running off the ropes and crushing D’Angelo Dinero with a big splash, forcing all of his three-hundred-and-fifty pounds on Dinero! Abyss covers, 1............ 2............ Dinero gets the shoulder up. Abyss gets back up and gets Dinero up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and then charging towards him like a freight train, but ‘The Pope’ moves out of the way as Abyss crashes into the turnbuckles and Dinero then runs off the ropes, hitting Abyss in the legs with a dropkick which brings him down! Dinero stomps away at Abyss and then goes to ground, getting Abyss in a leg-trap crossface! (Controversial, don’t you think?) Abyss writhes in pain and has his arms reached out, but he knows the ropes can’t help him in this Steel Cage Match so he can either tap out or find a way to escape. Abyss is able to get out of it when he rolls over, pinning Dinero! 1............ 2............ Dinero kicks out. Both competitors get back to their feet and Dinero runs at Abyss, but Abyss grabs Dinero by the throat, then wrapping his other hand around the throat too, and Abyss lifts Dinero into the air, running across the ring and ramming Dinero spine-first into the steel! Dinero falls to the canvas and Abyss stands over the TNA Global Champion, admiring the view before getting Dinero to his feet.

Abyss lifts D’Angelo Dinero up in position for a scoop slam, but Dinero manages to slip out of Abyss’ grasps and he lands on his feet behind Abyss, then jumping onto Abyss’ back and trying to choke the monster out. It seems as if there is a slender possibility that ‘The Pope’ might succeed, as Abyss drops to his knees and waves his hands about, trying to escape and after several moments, Abyss manages to get back to his feet with Dinero still holding onto him and ‘The Monster’ reverses into the Cage, driving Dinero’s spine into the steel once again, but the TNA Global Champion is still holding on, with his hands tightly wrapped around Abyss’ throat! Abyss drives Dinero into the steel again, and that time Dinero lets go, as he falls to the mat and Abyss covers, 1............ 2............ Dinero gets the shoulder up! Abyss gets to his feet and gets Dinero up, hitting him with a few right hands before Irish whipping him into the ropes, then ducking down in position to hit a back body drop, but Dinero counters, planting ‘The Monster’ with a DDT! The crowd pop, as Dinero covers Abyss, his first pin-fall attempt in this match, 1............ 2............ Abyss kicks out! Dinero doesn’t look too surprised that Abyss kicked out, and Abyss gets to his feet, as Dinero wrenches his arm and goes for the Dinero Experience, but Abyss is too big to be taken down by an STO and Abyss pushes Dinero away into the corner of the ring. Abyss then runs towards him and goes for a big splash, but Dinero moves out of the way as Abyss crashes into the turnbuckles.

Dinero then senses an opening, and he looks around the Dallas Convention Center before backing away into the corner opposite to Abyss and sprinting across the ring, hitting Abyss with the Dinero Express! Abyss goes down, but ‘The Pope’ doesn’t cover, knowing that it won’t be enough to successfully pin Abyss, so Dinero then begins to climb the Cage! Dinero has taken quite a beating from Abyss in this match though and it slows him down a bit, but when Abyss gets back up, Dinero is almost to the top of the Cage. Abyss grabs Dinero by his legs and tries to pul him away but the TNA Global Champion holds onto the Cage for dear life and after a few boots to the face of Abyss, ‘The Monster’ staggers backwards and Dinero continues to climb! Dinero has one leg on the top of the Cage... but Abyss grabs Dinero’s other leg! The crowd, firmly behind Dinero despite both competitors being faces, boo as Abyss then begins to climb the Cage, joining Dinero near the top and Dinero now has both legs on the top of the Cage. But he isn’t safe, as Abyss gets Dinero in a front face-lock, lifts him up, and hits Dinero with a Superplex almost from the top of the Cage!! The crowd cheer and chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ as Abyss and Dinero lie motionlessly on the mat after that Superplex from the top of the Cage, and after several moments Abyss covers Dinero, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Dinero gets the shoulder up!

The crowd cheer as D’Angelo Dinero refuses to give up, and Abyss covers again, 1............ 2............ Dinero kicks out! An angry Abyss slams his fists against the canvas before getting to his feet and climbing to the top rope, most likely en route to climbing the cage but ‘The Monster’ turns his head and sees Dinero getting to his feet, albeit very slowly. Abyss turns around fully to face Dinero but he then changes his mind, preparing to climb the Cage, but Dinero is up, and Dinero runs towards the ropes, jumping onto them and springboarding towards Abyss on the top rope, and hitting Abyss with the Dinero Declaration in mid-air from the top rope!!! Abyss and Dinero are once again spread out across the canvas and Dinero could win it here, but he takes too long to make the cover, and after crawling across the ring and laying an arm over Abyss, he does, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Abyss kicks out! Dinero must be getting very impatient now but you can’t see that on the outside as he is exhausted and he lies on the mat, eventually getting up and ever-so slowly climbing to the top rope, flying off the top rope and going for an elbow drop from the top rope... but Abyss moves out of the way! We’re back where we were before now, but Abyss gets to his feet and he gets Dinero up, grabbing him by the throat and lifting him up into the air for a Chokeslam but Dinero slips out of his grasps, landing on his feet behind ‘The Monster’ and then bringing Abyss down with a Jumping Leg Sweep! Dinero covers, 1............ 2............ Abyss gets the shoulder up!

D’Angelo Dinero sits up, exhausted and sweating profusely, and wipes the sweat from his forehead before struggling to his feet with assistance from the ropes and beginning to climb the Cage, but Abyss soon gets to his feet and Dinero sees him, jumping off the Cage and going for a Cross Body, but Abyss nails Dinero with the Black Hole Slam in mid-air!!! The tide has well and truly turned once again, as Abyss managed to hit ‘The Pope’ with the devastating Black Hole Slam in mid-air, but ‘The Monster’ is beleaguered, as he ever-so slowly crawls across the ring and manages to hook Dinero’s legs, 1............ 2............ 3-NO!!! DINERO GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!! How the hell did Dinero kick out of the Black Hole Slam in mid-air?!

Abyss has only himself to blame for not capitalizing on the execution of his patented finishing manoeuvre straight away, and Abyss gradually gets to his feet, getting Dinero up and lifting him onto his right shoulder, charging across the ring and looking to ram Dinero’s face into the Cage, but Dinero slips off Abyss’ shoulders and pushes him into the Cage! That isn’t enough though, and Dinero steps back, before running across the ring and hitting Abyss with the Dinero Express into the Cage!! Dinero sees the opportunity, and he slowly gets to his feet, staggering across the ring and beginning to climb the Cage. As ‘The Pope’ is three-quarters of the way up there, Abyss is back on his feet, and he reaches up, but Dinero narrowly avoids his grasps, and he now almost has one leg over the Cage! In a last resort, Abyss begins to climb the Cage and tries to grab Dinero one more time... but Dinero is now over the Cage, and he climbs down, winning the match!
Winner and STILL TNA Global Champion: D’Angelo Dinero at 11:00

D’Angelo Dinero has done it! He has retained the TNA Global Championship and has slayed the monster known as Abyss! An exhausted but elated Dinero sinks to his knees and has his hand raised by the referee before being given his TNA Global Championship which ‘The Pope’ raises above his head with both hands. Dinero then struggles to his feet and slowly makes his way up the ramp, high-fiving several fans on his way to the back after his sensational victory.

Mike Tenay: Can you believe it, Mick?! Somehow, someway, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero has defeated ‘The Monster’ Abyss and Dinero’s remarkable reign as TNA Global Champion lives on!

Mick Foley: Like I’ve said before, I’m a big fan of D’Angelo Dinero but even I didn’t think Dinero could do it tonight. He proved me and many of the fans wrong though, and he is still the TNA Global Champion, I’m glad to say.

Mike Tenay: I’m sure that ‘The Pope’’s congregation has added a whole lot more believers to its rank after this sensational performance tonight at Lockdown!

Backstage, Sting is at the bottom of a flight of steel stairs which lead up to the rafters at the top of the Arena, and ‘The Icon’, his hands in his hair, is looking motionlessly at the floor.

Mike Tenay: And coming up next, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Mr. Anderson versus Sting inside the Steel Cage in a Destination X re-match, and let’s take a look at how this all started.

------

A video package begins, and it shows Mr. Anderson standing under the spotlight in the ring, addressing the crowd on the historic February 15th edition of Monday Night Impact.

Mr. Anderson: I am the reason that you’re all here tonight and I’m the reason that you can call yourselves TNA fans.

We briefly see a shot of Anderson hitting AJ Styles with the Mic Check.

Mr. Anderson: Not AJ Styles... not Jeff Hardy... not Kurt Angle... not The Motor City Machine Guns...

An image of Sting staring directly into the camera flickers on and off as Anderson talks.

Mr. Anderson: And sure as hell not-

The image of Sting is now still as it is shown, and we then see highlights of Sting’s return to TNA, with ‘The Icon’ appearing in the ring and chasing away Anderson.

Tenay: MY GOD! IT IS! STING HAS RETURNED TO TNA, AND HE IS STANDING FACE-TO-FACE WITH MR. ANDERSON!

The Destination X logo appears, and afterwards clips are shown of Anderson and Sting’s match at that event, with Sting coming out on top after a hard-fought encounter.

Taz: I didn’t think he could do it, but he has! Sting – has beaten – Mr. Anderson!

Mr. Anderson: Whoa, whoa, Stinger! Don’t go anywhere! ... This isn’t over between us... Lockdown... I want you... one-on-one... in the Steel Cage!

We then see highlights of the following night, where we witness Anderson say that he knew that Sting wouldn’t accept his challenge to a match at Lockdown, but he then appears on the ImpacTron and talks to Anderson.

Sting: That’s right, you didn’t think I would, did you?! It’s SHOWTIME for you on April 18th in Dallas, Texas, Ken, BECAUSE ME AND YOU ARE STEPPING INSIDE THAT STEEL CAGE AT LOCKDOWN AND I’M GONNA DYE THAT BLONDE HAIR OF YOURS RED WITH YOUR OWN BLOOD!!

Then, there are shots and clips of the two fighting in and out of the ring with Anderson making Sting bleed and then taking his blood-stained black baseball bat, the two of them fighting in the rafters backstage with both coming out on top on separate occasions.

Tenay: Lockdown – April 18th – Dallas, Texas – Anderson and Sting – inside the Steel Cage – one...

Sting hitting Anderson with the Scorpion Death Drop.

Tenay: ... more...

Anderson hitting Sting with the Mic Check.

Tenay: ... time!

The video concludes with the shot of Anderson and Sting having a stare-down as the camera fades to black.

------

Back in the Arena, ‘Mic Checked’ blares out to heat from the crowd and the lights go out in the Dallas Convention Center, with Mr. Anderson standing on the stage when the spotlight shines down on him. The cocky braggart has his trademark microphone in his hand, and he is ready and willing to speak.

Mr. Anderson: (Clears throat) Lockdown... Lockdown... Lockdown. Dallas... Texas.

The crowd cheer when their state is mentioned.

Mr. Anderson: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, I didn’t say any of you could cheer. And you shouldn’t be, ‘cause quite frankly, Texas absolutely sucks.

Anderson gets his heat back with that statement.

Mr. Anderson: People say that everything’s bigger in Texas, well I’m too big for Texas, I’m better than Texas, if I got to choose the place where I would decimate and humiliate Sting, which will of course happen tonight, it wouldn’t be here, it would be in GREEN – BAY – WIS – CON –SIN... and this may be the Lonestar State, but I will not be alone when my hand is raised high in the air and the winner of the match is announced as MIIIIISSSTAAHHHH... ANNNNDDDEERRRSSOOONNN!!!

Anderson then saunters down the ramp, and stops in front of the Cage.

Mr. Anderson: ANNNNDDDEERRRSSOOONNN!!!

Anderson lets go of his microphone which reels back up to the ceiling and then enters the Cage, waiting for his opponent to arrive. ‘Slay Me’ then sounds off to a huge pop from the crowd and the lights dim as Sting makes his way out, clad in his black trench-coat and with his baseball bat in his hand which he points to the audience as he hollers ‘Showtime!’ before walking down the ramp and entering the Cage, removing his trench-coat but putting his bat in the corner.

Steel Cage Match
Mr Anderson Vs Sting
The bell rings and the audience explode into cheers for the beginning of this highly-anticipated match as Mr. Anderson and Sting walk towards the middle of the ring and have an intense stare-down. Sting puts his hands up in preparation to lock up with Anderson, but Anderson has other plans, as he kicks him in the mid-section and begins to hit Sting with right hands before Irish whipping him against the ropes. Sting comes running off the ropes and Anderson goes for a clothesline, but Sting ducks it and runs off the ropes again before taking Anderson down with a shoulder tackle. It isn’t much, but it gets the crowd going and they cheer as Sting runs off the ropes and goes for an elbow drop but Anderson rolls out of the way and both competitors get back to their feet as it goes back to square one. Anderson and Sting then lock up, and Anderson wrenches Sting’s arm, getting ‘The Icon’ in a wrist-lock and keeping him in it until Sting frees himself with a kick to Anderson’s mid-section and he then Irish whips Anderson into the corner of the ring. Sting then backs into the opposite corner, and runs at Anderson, but Anderson counters and sends Sting’s face into the Steel with a flapjack! This match just picked up, as Sting bounces off the Cage and falls to the canvas and Anderson walks circles around him, sporadically stomping into his mid-section as he taunts his veteran opponent until he gets him to his feet.

Anderson hits Sting with a few right hands and Irish whips him into the ropes, subsequently ducking down in position to hit a back body drop but Sting counters with a Triple H-esque facebuster, and the former World Champion then follows it up with a clothesline which takes the cocky Anderson down to the mat. Sting takes a breather, holding his forehead after being driven into the steel by Anderson moments ago, and he gets Anderson back up, getting him in the corner of the ring and holding onto the ropes, repeatedly spearing Anderson in the mid-section until he backs away and runs at him, successfully following up with a clothesline! A groggy Anderson stumbles forward and Sting lifts him up, hitting him with a Powerslam! Sting then makes the cover, looking for an early finish to this match, 1............ 2............ Anderson kicks out. Sting slowly gets back up and gets Anderson to his feet, lifting him up in a scoop slam position and then dropping him down in position for the patented Scorpion Death Drop, but Anderson fights out of it with a few elbows to Sting’s mid-section, and he then turns around, kicking Sting in the mid-section, getting him in a front face-lock position and lifting him into the air, walking across the ring and driving the entire front of Sting’s body into the steel before dropping him backwards with a suplex! Anderson covers, 1............ 2............ Sting gets the shoulder up!

Anderson, on his knees with his hands on his hips, looks up at the referee and stares at him for a few moments after Sting kicked out, before the bragadocious competitor gets back to his feet and gets Sting up, dragging him across the ring by his hair and then dragging his face across the steel from side to side for several moments until he finally lets go and allows Sting to fall to the canvas in a heap. Anderson stands over Sting, who is now busted open, and Anderson looks down at the veteran, talking trash to him until he notices Sting’s trademark black baseball bat in the corner of the ring and Anderson walks towards it, picking it up and admiring it with a sadistic grin on his face before walking back towards Sting, sitting him up and keeping him in that position with his knee which Sting’s back rests against. Anderson slowly brings the baseball bat in front of Sting and places it on his throat, then proceeding to choke Sting with the bat as ‘The Icon’ writhes in pain and a sneering Anderson nods his head in contentment before abruptly stopping, dropping the bat and then covering Sting, 1............ 2............ Sting kicks out! The crowd pop for Sting as his leg falls back to the mat, but the feeling isn’t mutual as far as Mr. Anderson is concerned, and Anderson gets to his feet, getting a disorientated and groggy Sting back up as well and taking him towards the ropes, putting Sting’s arms in between them and then proceeding to trap Sting’s arms in the ropes!

Sting barely knows where he is right now, and with his face-paint fading and blood trickling down his forehead, Anderson stands in front of his nemesis and taunts him, saying to him ‘NOW, it’s showtime’ before picking up the baseball bat, and targeting Sting’s left leg with the baseball bat, just like he did this past Monday on Impact in a backstage assault, repeatedly smashing it with the bat! The crowd continue to boo, but then Sting inadvertently escapes from the ropes, falling to the mat, but he is still falling behind Anderson in this contest, as Anderson hooks his legs and makes the cover, expecting a victory right here and now, 1............ 2............ Sting gets the shoulder up! Anderson is shocked, he still cannot put Sting away, and he shakes his head in anger and disappointment before getting up and grabbing Sting’s leg, turning Sting over onto his stomach and lifting his injured leg in the air before slamming it down to the canvas. Anderson isn’t done there though, as he takes Sting’s leg again and drags him across the ring, placing his leg on the bottom rope and using the ropes to force himself into the air, before dropping a double-foot stomp onto Sting’s leg. Anderson covers again, 1............ 2............ Sting kicks out with his healthy leg! Anderson, who is red in the face, slams his hands against the canvas in anger and shouts ‘WHY – WON’T – YOU – KICK – OUT?!’

Anderson gets back up and takes both of Sting’s legs, looking to do further damage, but Sting kicks Anderson in the face with his healthy leg and sends Anderson back-pedalling into the corner of the ring. Sting struggles to his feet, his injured leg weighing him down, but when ‘The Icon’ is up he walks over to the corner of the ring and hits Anderson with some right hands before lifting him to the top rope and then gradually climbing up there himself, getting Anderson in a front face-lock and nailing Anderson with a Superplex which shakes the entire Cage! Both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas, and Sting eventually lays his arm over Anderson, making the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Anderson gets the shoulder up in the nick of time! It takes several moments for the match to get up and running again, and Sting is the first to get up with assistance from the ropes, as he jogs off the ropes and drives his elbow into Anderson’s sternum. Sting gets Anderson to his feet and grabs him by his neck, running across the ring with him and throwing Anderson face-first into the Steel Cage! Anderson bounces off the Steel, but before he can fall to the mat, Sting grabs him again and throws him into the Cage a second time! Anderson falls down to the mat, but Sting is not done, as he mercilessly gets Anderson back up and throws Anderson into the Steel a third and final time!

Anderson is now busted open too, and he falls to the canvas as Sting then takes a big risk by climbing to the top rope, and it takes him several moments to climb up there with fatigue setting in and Sting’s leg injured. Sting eventually gets up there, and he looks down at Anderson, then looking around the fans in the Dallas Convention Center who are almost all on their feet and letting out a resounding ‘Wooooooo!’ before jumping off the top rope and going for an elbow drop... but Anderson rolls out of the way, as the veteran Sting crashes and burns on the canvas! Both Anderson and Sting are laid out again, and Anderson is the first to get to his feet, as he slowly staggers across the ring towards the corner and he climbs to the top rope, taunting Sting and the crowd, before going for the Kenton Bomb, but all Anderson connects with is Sting’s knees! Anderson writhes in pain as he falls face-down to the mat and Sting slowly gets back up, taking Anderson’s legs and trying to lock in the Scorpion Death Lock... but Anderson nails Sting with a low blow! Sting clutches his gut and falls to the canvas as Anderson crawls towards the corner and pulls himself up, then getting Sting back to his feet. Anderson gets Sting in position for the Mic Check, but Sting fights out of it with half a dozen elbows to Anderson’s cranium, and Sting then steals Anderson’s move, nailing him with his own Mic Check!

The crowd cheer Sting and encourage him to make the cover and end this match, but Sting cannot capitalize as he falls to the mat with Anderson and takes an extended breather before eventually making the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Anderson somehow gets the shoulder up again!! Sting cannot believe it, and he runs his hand through his hair and wipes some blood from his forehead before struggling to his feet, which takes several moments, and looking at his bat which is once again in the corner, picking it up and hobbling back towards Anderson, raising the baseball bat into the air and preparing to hit Anderson with it, but Anderson sits up and rakes Sting in the eyes!! ‘The Icon’ drops the bat and staggers backwards into the ropes, and Anderson then sneakily delves into his trunks, revealing some brass knuckles!! The crowd boo Anderson as he puts the brass knuckles onto his hand and gets up, as Sting walks forward and Anderson swings his fist at Sting, but Sting ducks it and kicks Anderson in the mid-section, as the brass knuckles which weren’t placed on Anderson’s fist very securely fall to the mat and Sting then picks them up, placing them on his own fist as he backs away and Anderson stumbles forward. Sting grabs Anderson by his face and says to him ‘You’re about to get a whole lot more of your own medicine, Ken’, before nailing Anderson in the head with his own brass knuckles!!

Anderson falls to the canvas, and now there is more blood on Anderson’s face as Sting drops to his knees and covers Anderson, with a victory surely secured now, 1............ 2............ 3-Sting puts Anderson’s shoulder up?! That’s right; Sting doesn’t want this match to end yet, he wants to inflict more pain on Anderson, and he then slowly gets back to his feet, taking several moments to check on his injured leg and adjusting his knee-pad to accommodate his injury, before hobbling back towards Anderson, but Anderson now has Sting’s baseball bat in his hands, and Anderson has enough left in him to hit Sting in his injured leg with the baseball bat once again! Sting falls to one knee, and Anderson then wraps his legs around Sting’s arm, taking his hand and taking back his brass knuckles! Anderson then lets go of Sting’s arm and lets him stagger backwards, and Anderson then gets to his feet, knocking Sting down with a brass knuckle-enforced blow! Anderson isn’t satisfied though, as he gets Sting back up to his feet and gets him in position, before finally connecting with the patented Mic Check!! Anderson accepts no delays whatsoever, as he slowly hooks both of Sting’s legs and makes the cover, as all of the Sting fans prepare to accept defeat and prepare to voice their disapproval of the cocky Anderson, who has an ear-to-ear grin on his face as he pins his arch-nemesis, 1............ 2............ 3!!! It’s finally over!!!
Winner: Mr. Anderson at 13:44

Mr. Anderson has done it! He has finally defeated his arch-rival Sting! ‘Mic Check’ blares out to confirm Anderson’s victory, and he gets to his feet, yelling at the referee to perform the best hand-raise ever which Andrew Thomas tries to do as he raises Anderson’s hand high and Anderson then pulls away, raising both of his hands above his head in victory whilst standing over Sting.

Mike Tenay: Mr. Anderson told the world time and time again that he would defeat Sting at Lockdown, and very few believed him, but love him or hate him, Anderson has kept to his promise and he has prevailed over ‘The Icon’ tonight in Dallas, Texas.

Mick Foley: I was one of the believers that though Anderson could do it tonight, so it looks like I was right, and like it or not he is one of the fastest-rising stars in TNA today.

Anderson, his forehead entirely covered his blood, holds his ribs with one hand, but he raises his free hand into the air, as he receives his microphone.

Mr. Anderson: And the winner of the match, if there was ever any doubt... MIIIISSSSTTTAAAAHHHHH... AAAAAANNNNDDDDEEERRRSSSOOONNN!!!

A jubilant Anderson then begins to climb the Cage, and stands at the top of it, to make his final proclamation.

Mr. Anderson: ... AAAAAAANNNNDDDDEEERRRRSSSOOONNNN!!!

‘Mic Checked’ then sounds off again and Anderson lets go of the microphone, climbing down the outside of the Cage to the concrete floor and walking up the ramp with one hand constantly raised, turning back and looking at Sting in the ring who is still down, before laughing at the sight of his destruction and disappearing behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: Ever since he arrived on the scene in TNA, Mr. Anderson has had plenty of doubters, but he has proved a lot of them wrong tonight.

Backstage, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan are in their office, watching the event on a widescreen TV.

Eric Bischoff: Wow, what a match, huh Hulkster?

Hulk Hogan: You’ve got that right, Eric, and it’s gonna get better with Lethal Lockdown and AJ versus Hardy, brother, I can’t-

Hogan stops when the former TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money, walk in with James Storm holding a towel over his head after being hit with his own beer bottle by Chris Sabin and Roode is holding his ribs with one hand and his head with the other.

Eric Bischoff: Ah, Beer Money... what can we do for you?

Robert Roode:You can’t do anything for us, Eric, and neither can you Hulk because we’ve come here to tell you something.

Bischoff and Hogan nod their heads, wanting to know what Beer Money have in store.

James Storm: We were screwed out of our TNA World Tag Team Titles tonight, Chris Sabin smashed a beer bottle over my damn head for crying out loud! How the hell is that allowed?!

Hulk Hogan: Well for one, it’s totally legal inside the Steel Cage, and secondly, an eye for an eye, brother, as far as I’m concerned, all Chris was doing was getting revenge.

Robert Roode: See, bias like that is why you don’t deserve the power you have, Hulk, but it doesn’t matter because me and James are invoking our re-match clause at Sacrifice, and we’re gonna bring back those TNA World Tag Team Championships to where they belong... to us.

Roode and Storm then turn around and walk away, having made their feelings and intentions clear, and we then return to the announce table with Mike Tenay and Mick Foley.

Mick Foley: Beer Money getting their re-match for the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Sacrifice? Alright! Looks like we’ve already got one great match lined up for May 16th in Daytona Beach, Florida!

Mike Tenay: And speaking of great matches, Mick, that’s exactly what we have coming up next at Lockdown; it’s Team Angle, consisting of Kurt Angle, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam, against Team Flair, consisting of team captain Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino and Samoa Joe, in Lethal Lockdown! Let’s take a look as to how this came about.

------

A video package plays, going back to Genesis in January where AJ Styles defended the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Kurt Angle, and Angle is shown closing in on the victory.

Mike Tenay: Kurt Angle is closing in on the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, he could be just moments away!

Tenay’s final words repeatedly echo as Ric Flair climbs up onto the ring apron and costs Angle the match, with an unaware Styles hitting the 450 Splash and retaining the title.

Mike Tenay: Damnit! Ric Flair has screwed Kurt Angle out of the most prestigious prize in professional wrestling, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

We then see highlights of events that take place over the next few weeks, with Kurt Angle locking Flair in the Ankle Lock four nights after Genesis, Angle being held backstage whilst Mr. Anderson and Flair assault Styles in the ring, Angle trying to break into Flair’s locker room and defeating Sean Morley who was hand-picked by ‘The Nature Boy’.

Then, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe are shown fighting in their Ladder Match, and Angle is at the top of the Ladder, about to grab the Feast or Fired briefcase, only for Flair to raise the briefcase up out of Kurt’s reach, with the camera zooming in on Flair’s face as he grins and Joe then hits Angle with the Muscle Buster before obtaining his briefcase.

Mike Tenay: Ric Flair has struck again! He has cost Kurt Angle the Feast or Fired Briefcase!

We then see the confrontation between Angle and Flair the night after Destination X.

Kurt Angle: I was expecting to be in the main event of Lockdown next month, but it looks like that’s not going to happen now.

The crowd give a mixed reaction, unhappy that Angle isn’t in the main event but happy that Jeff Hardy is.

Kurt Angle: I sat down and I reflected on what’s happened over the past two months, and Ric Flair has almost killed my career. He’s cost me matches, he’s driven me over the limit and I’m not gonna stand for it any longer.

Cheers from the crowd.

Kurt Angle: Ric, I called you out a few weeks ago and all I got was Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff, but this time if you don’t come out here, I’m gonna go back there and drag your ass out to this ring myself, so Ric ... get out here, right – now!

Flair is now out in the ring.

Ric Flair: You were the one who started this, I did a favour for AJ Styles ‘cause I saw a lot in that kid and he shot me down, but still ya’ blame ME for the fact that ya’ didn’t win the title at Genesis.

Ric Flair: Ya’ wanna put an end to this, Kurt? All ya’ have to do is shake my hand, man up and admit that your career has gone down the drain ‘cause of YOU, not ME!

Flair extends his hand to Kurt, and Angle looks around the crowd who chant ‘Don’t sell out!’ before Kurt continues to talk.

Kurt Angle: As far as doing anything like that goes ... as somebody I know once said, there is no chance in HELL!

Pop for Angle, as Ric’s eyes widen and he draws his hand back.

Kurt Angle: I’m not gonna do that, Ric, because firstly, none of that crap that came out of your mouth is true, and secondly, I’m not gonna let you feel that good about yourself, old man. I know that you’re sick of seeing me, and I’m sick of seeing you just as much, so if this is gonna end, then how about we end it at LOCKDOWN?!

Huge pop from the crowd, as Flair looks at Kurt curiously.

Kurt Angle: I know that you’re retired, and rightly so because if you ever faced me I would put you in a damn wheelchair and then I’d do even more to you, so here’s what I think; we settle this in LETHAL – LOCKDOWN!!

We then see Angle hit Flair with the Angle Slam, followed by highlights of the matches over the next few weeks between members of the two teams, with Desmond Wolfe defeating Angle, Rob Van Dam defeating Samoa Joe, Matt Morgan defeating Hernandez and Jeff Jarrett prevailing over Rhino, before ending with Angle and Flair having a stare-down...

------

Backstage, we see Team Angle and Team Flair in their respective locker rooms, watching a TV monitor as Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan are in their office and Hogan has a coin.

Hulk Hogan: Alright, heads is Angle, tails is Flair.

Hogan flips the coin, and it lands on... tails, meaning that Team Flair will enter first and they will have the advantage. Angle leaves his team locker room, whilst Team Flair captain Desmond Wolfe leaves his team’s locker room, as the two make their way to the ring.

In the Arena, ‘Hungry’ blares out and the crowd boo as the captain of Team Flair, Desmond Wolfe, walks out with Ric Flair on one side and Chelsea on the other. Wolfe gives the fans his two-fingered gesture with both hands as he saunters down the ramp and bids Chelsea and Flair farewell before entering the Cage and looking up at the ceiling of the Arena, where the top of the Cage with the weapons hanging from it is situated. Then, ‘Gold Metal’ sounds off to a big pop from the crowd and Kurt Angle ascends up to the ramp from his elevator, throwing his hands into the air as a big pyro goes off before storming down the ramp as Flair and Chelsea scurry away and a fired-up Angle enters the Cage, standing opposite Wolfe and removing his medal.

Lethal Lockdown Match
Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam) Vs Team Flair (Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino and Samoa Joe)
The bell rings and the crowd pop as Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle, two former rivals who had many epic battles, circle each other around the ring for a few moments before locking up. Wolfe kicks Angle in the mid-section and gets him in a headlock, subsequently flooring Kurt with a headlock takedown and he keeps Angle grounded, but not for long as the ‘Olympic Gold Medallist’ gets back to his feet and pushes Wolfe into the ropes, as Wolfe comes running back and jumps over Angle who lies down on his stomach on the canvas and Desmond runs off the ropes again as Kurt gets back to his feet, taking Wolfe down with an arm drag and then getting the Englishman in an arm-bar. Wolfe soon escapes it though, as he rolls over and hits Angle with a few back elbows to the cranium before Wolfe gets back to his feet and Angle, holding his head, does as well. The two competitors then lock up again and Angle forces Wolfe into the corner of the ring and Desmond shoves Kurt away, as Angle then runs towards Wolfe but Desmond hits Kurt with a boot to the face and follows it up with an Atomic Drop and a subsequent Russian Leg Sweep. Wolfe gets back up and takes a moment to give his two-fingered gesture once again to the disapproving Dallas audience whilst Chelsea and Ric Flair applaud and cheer him on outside the Cage at ringside, and Wolfe then runs off the ropes, but Angle takes him down with a drop toe hold and then rolls backwards, finding himself behind a floored Wolfe and grabbing his ankle, trying to lock in the Ankle Lock!

However, Desmond rolls onto his back and kicks Kurt away into the corner of the ring, buying himself some time which he uses to get to his feet. Wolfe, now back up, runs at Angle but Kurt moves out of the way and hurls Desmond face-first into the top turnbuckle, then getting Wolfe and wrapping his arms around his waist, planting him with a German Suplex! Angle holds onto Wolfe though and gets back up with Wolfe still in his grasps, hitting him with another German Suplex before getting up again and connecting with a third and final German Suplex! ‘The Wrestling Machine’ finally lets go of Wolfe and gets to his feet, throwing his arms out and hollering ‘Yeah!’ before walking towards the side of the ring where Chelsea and Ric Flair are situated on the outside, looking at Flair with a smirk on his face as Ric goes nuts and throws a tantrum before Kurt walks back towards Wolfe and gets him to his feet. Angle hits Desmond with a few uppercuts and Irish whips him into the ropes, going for an arm drag but Wolfe counters and takes Kurt down with a hip toss, holding onto Angle’s arm with Kurt laid out on his back and crushing his arm with a leg drop. Wolfe gets back up and stomps away at Angle’s mid-section before getting him up and wrenching his arm, kicking him in the mid-section and then running off the ropes, driving Kurt face-first into the mat with a bulldog. Wolfe gets back up and takes Angle by his arms, dragging him across the ring towards the ropes and turning him over onto his back, jumping onto the middle rope and using it to force himself into the air before coming down and hitting Angle with a knee drop.

Wolfe gets Angle up and takes him down with an uppercut, then getting him back up and Irish whipping him into the ropes and ducking down in preparation to hit a back body drop, but Kurt counters with a sunset flip and he floors Wolfe, then getting back up and trying to turn Desmond over but Wolfe sits up and rakes Angle in the eyes! Desmond is then able to get back up and Angle is now in the corner of the ring. Wolfe runs at him, but Angle lifts Wolfe up by his legs and attempts to drive Wolfe’s face into the Steel, but Desmond lands on the top rope on his feet unscathed and he then sends Angle back-pedalling with a boot to the face before jumping off the top rope and hitting Kurt with an elbow to the cranium! After a few moments, Wolfe gets back up and circles Angle, sporadically hitting ‘The Wrestling Machine’ with stomps before getting him to his feet as the countdown begins for the next participant to enter: 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds, and ‘War Machine’ then blares out to heat from the crowd as Rhino walks out and throws his hands into the air as a huge pyro goes off before he charges down the ramp and opens the Cage door, entering the ring and immediately getting into the thick of things, assisting Desmond Wolfe as he kicks Kurt Angle in the mid-section and both of them hit Angle with right hands, Irish whipping Kurt into the ropes and going for a double clothesline but Angle ducks both of them and runs off the ropes, charging at the duo and launching himself at them through the air, taking both Rhino and Wolfe down to the mat! The crowd pop as Angle gets back up and enjoys his brief superiority, throwing his arms into the air and then getting Rhino to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and unloading on ‘The War Machine’ with right hands until Rhino sinks down in the corner and Angle then begins to bombard Rhino with stomps but Wolfe, now back on his feet, re-enters the action and pulls Kurt back, hitting him with right hands and then kicking him in the mid-section before throwing him into the corner of the ring once Rhino is back on his feet and the two members of Team Flair then corner Angle, double-teaming ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ and both stomping away at him until he is sat down and they both take turns to press their boot against Kurt’s throat until they get Angle back up and the action slows down a bit as Rhino and Wolfe continue to wear Angle down with right hands and when Kurt is down, Wolfe gets him in an abdominal stretch whilst Rhino stomps into Angle’s mid-section with Kurt trapped in the Englishman’s grasps, and then the countdown begins: 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds once again, and ‘My World’ blares out as the founder of TNA Wrestling Jeff Jarrett makes his way out to a good ovation from the crowd, pausing and holding his hands in the air as his pyro goes off before he walks down the ramp and removes his white and silver jacket, entering the Cage and immediately going for Desmond Wolfe, hitting him with right hands as Kurt Angle escapes from his grasps and Rhino goes to attack Jarrett but Jeff kicks him in the mid-section and gets him in a front face-lock, hitting him with a suplex as he turns his attention back to Wolfe and with Angle back on his feet, they kick him in the mid-section and hit him with a Double Suplex. Angle and Jarrett, former rivals, both look at each other and give one another a nod of approval before they walk towards Rhino and get him to his feet, as they bring him towards the steel of the Cage and they press his face against it, both dragging him from side to side by his hair before they let go and Jarrett lifts Rhino up, hitting him with a Back Suplex. Angle and Jarrett continue to target Rhino, and they bring ‘The War Machine’ into the center of the ring before the two of them take one of his legs each and they lock him in a two-man Boston Crab! Rhino writhes in pain and screams out in desperation, but Desmond Wolfe is now on his feet with Angle and Jarrett facing away from him, and Wolfe runs off the ropes before taking Angle and Jarrett out with a double clothesline and freeing Rhino, who immediately tends to his legs which were trapped in that submission hold as the countdown begins again: 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds, and ‘Sleeping Giant’ blares out on the P.A. System as the 7-foot, 310-pound behemoth ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan walks out onto the stage, throwing off his blue robe and out-stretching his arms as his pyro goes off before he makes his way down the ramp and enters the Cage, immediately grabbing Jeff Jarrett and getting him to his feet, lifting him up onto his right shoulder and charging across the ring, driving ‘The King of the Mountain’ spine-first into the Cage! Morgan jumps up and down with excitement whilst pounding his chest with his fists before he tells Desmond Wolfe and Rhino to get Kurt Angle up, and Rhino and Wolfe get him to his feet as Morgan runs forward and goes for the Carbon Footprint, but Angle ducks it and when Morgan turns around, Kurt grabs Morgan and hits him with a thunderous Belly-To-Belly Suplex! The crowd cheer as Angle sends the giant flying across the ring but Kurt isn’t able to capitalize as Rhino and Wolfe immediately attack Angle before he can get back to his feet, both stomping away at him with ‘The War Machine’ driving an elbow into the sternum of ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’. They then get Angle to his feet and Morgan, who is still relatively fresh despite being hit with a Belly-To-Belly Suplex courtesy of Angle, gets up as well as it is three-on-one against the cornerstone of Team Angle. Morgan lifts Angle up into the air in a Gorilla Press position and ‘The Blueprint’ displays his dominance and immense strength, walking around the ring with a grin on his face whilst holding Angle in the air, before he throws Kurt through the air like a rag doll into the Cage! Jeff Jarrett is now back up but is immediately attacked by the trio as the countdown begins: 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds again, and ‘Te Gusta O No!’ blares out to a pop from the crowd, marking the arrival of ‘Super Mex’ Hernandez and the Mexican wastes no time, as he removes his black vest and sprints down the ramp, entering the Cage and coming to the aid of Jeff Jarrett as he runs off the ropes and flies through the air, going into Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan and Rhino and taking Rhino and Wolfe down courtesy of a Flying Shoulder Tackle! Morgan stays on his feet, but he staggers back into the ropes and when he comes forward, he has a heated stare-down with his former tag team partner and rival Hernandez, and after a few moments they begin to exchange right hands and Morgan runs off the ropes, charging towards ‘Super Mex’ but Hernandez manages to slay the giant, taking him down with a thunderous clothesline! Hernandez helps Jeff Jarrett up and they target Desmond Wolfe and Rhino whilst Kurt Angle still lies motionlessly in the corner of the ring after being unceremoniously thrown into the Cage by Morgan, as Hernandez fights Rhino and Jarrett takes on Wolfe with the two members of Team Angle in control. Hernandez Irish whips ‘The War Machine’ into the corner of the ring and charges towards him, flying through the air but Rhino moves out of the way and Hernandez crashes into the turnbuckles. Meanwhile, Jeff Jarrett lifts Wolfe up and plants him on the mat but with Hernandez temporarily out of comission, Rhino comes to the aid of the team captain of Team Flair, jumping Jarrett from behind and kicking him in the mid-section, planting him with a DDT! Matt Morgan is back on his feet now, and Team Flair appear to be in control with Angle, Hernandez and Jarrett all down, as the countdown begins, 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds, and ‘Nation Of Violence’ blares out as the fourth and final entrant in the Lethal Lockdown Match for Team Flair, ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe walks out, with a white towel over his shoulders, getting heat from the crowd. With Team Flair in control at the moment, Joe appears to be in no rush as he slowly trudges down the ramp with his head down and throws his towel to the floor before entering the Cage. Hernandez is back up and he is trying to fight Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan and Rhino but he is un-successful and all hope of being able to fight Team Flair on his own is well and truly eradicated once Joe enters the mix. Joe immediately goes for Hernandez and unloads on ‘Super Mex’ with lefts and rights, forcing him into the corner as Joe continues to bombard Hernandez with blows before turning his back to him and then jumping into the air, nailing Hernandez with a Bicycle Kick! Hernandez falls forward to the mat on his face, and Jeff Jarrett is now back up after being hit by a DDT from Rhino, as the freshest man in the match, Joe, then goes for the founder of TNA but Jarrett valiantly fights back as he trades blows with ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’, and Jarrett appears to be gaining the upper hand in the exchange but any capitalization fails to come to fruition as Morgan, Rhino and Wolfe latch onto Jarrett and assault him, the numbers game catching up with Jarrett and Team Angle. Now, Kurt Angle who has been down and out for a while is back up, and when the four members of Team Flair see him on his feet, they all share the same feeling that Angle should have stayed down, but then the countdown begins: 10............ 9............ 8............ 7............ 6............ 5............ 4............ 3............ 2............ 1............ 0!

The buzzer sounds, and ‘Whole F’n Show’ plays to arguably the biggest pop of the night here in Dallas, Texas as ‘Mr. Monday Night’ Rob Van Dam makes his way out and doesn’t bother to perform any poses for the crowd as he runs down the ramp and removes his T-shirt, entering the Cage and assisting Kurt Angle as Van Dam stands alongside the team captain and Hernandez and Jeff Jarrett are now up as well as it is even once again and the two teams stand opposite each other as the eight competitors all look up, as the roof begins to come down, and it rests on the top of the Cage! The weapons are hanging from the roof, and they are all taken by the competitors as the fresh RVD takes a Steel Chair and throws it into Rhino’s hands, nailing Rhino with the Van Daminator! The crowd pop as ‘The War Machine’ goes down and Kurt Angle takes a trashcan, which he hits Samoa Joe with across the face! Joe goes down as well, but meanwhile, Matt Morgan hits Hernandez with a Kendo Stick shot to the head and Desmond Wolfe drives a table into Jeff Jarrett’s mid-section! Now, Angle and RVD are facing off against Morgan and Wolfe, and Angle begins to trade blows with ‘The Blueprint’ whilst Van Dam fights Wolfe, and RVD runs off the ropes, running at Wolfe but the captain of Team Flair hits Van Dam with a Powerslam! Meanwhile, Morgan goes for a clothesline but Angle ducks it and grabs Morgan by his waist, hitting Morgan with a German Suplex! Angle then gets back up still holding onto Morgan, and hits another German Suplex, before getting up once again and hitting the giant with a third and final German Suplex!

Now it is just Angle and Wolfe up on their feet and Wolfe takes a Ladder down from the roof of the Cage, as Kurt appears to be very cautious but Angle then climbs to the top rope and rips the panel right off the roof of the Cage, climbing through the gap onto the top of the Cage! Angle stands at the top of the Cage and yells at Wolfe ‘Get your ass up here, Desmond!’ as Wolfe nods his head with a grin on his face and fits the Ladder through the gap onto the top of the Cage before climbing up there and beginning to fight Angle as they trade blows until Wolfe puts an end to it by raking ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ in the eyes and the Englishman then picks up the Ladder, driving the Ladder right into Angle and taking him down! Wolfe is now the only man standing tall on top of the Cage as he looks down at Kurt with a smirk on his face, but now Rob Van Dam is climbing through the gap to the top of the Cage, bringing a Table with him and Wolfe looks to capitalize before RVD can get to his feet, beginning to bombard him with stomps but Van Dam fights him off and gets up, trading blows with Wolfe and then taking him down with a heel kick! Now, Samoa Joe is way up as the behemoth barely fits through the gap and runs at Van Dam, taking him down with a thunderous clothesline as RVD’s head and back crash into the steel!

Meanwhile, Hernandez and Jeff Jarrett from Team Angle and Matt Morgan and Rhino from Team Flair are all up on their feet in the ring and Jarrett and Rhino exchange blows as Jarrett takes him down with a clothesline before taking a Trash Can and placing it in the corner of the ring, taking a while to do so with his groginess setting in and when he puts the Can in position, when he turns around, Rhino is back up and he runs across the ring, nailing Jarrett with a GORE into the Trash Can!!! The founder of TNA is now out of comission and meanwhile, Hernandez runs off the ropes and hits Morgan with a Flying Shoulder Tackle which sends ‘The Blueprint’ into the Cage and Hernandez then gets back up, running towards Morgan and hitting him with a clothesline as Morgan falls to the canvas but Rhino then goes after Hernandez, kicking him in the mid-section and hitting ‘Super Mex’ with an Exploder Suplex! On the top of the Cage, Joe has Van Dam up and a table has been set up, which Joe tries to load RVD onto the table, getting him on there but ‘The Whole F’n Show’ fights back, hitting ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ with some lefts and rights and getting off the table, and Joe backs into an Angle Slam out of no-where from Kurt Angle who just got back to his feet! Wolfe then goes for RVD but Van Dam takes Desmond down with a clothesline and then backs away, before rolling across the top of the Cage and hitting Wolfe with the Rolling Thunder!

Van Dam gets back up and sees Joe down, having not moved since being hit with the Angle Slam from Kurt Angle, as he gets him up and lifts him onto the table, then grabbing the Ladder and setting it up behind the Table, before climbing to the top of the Ladder and performing his signature thumb taunt for the fans, before jumping off the top of the Ladder and nailing Samoa Joe with the Five-Star Frog Splash from the top of the Ladder through the Table on the top of the Cage!!! The crowd go wild and chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ whilst the referee climbs out onto the top of the Cage as Van Dam covers Joe having landed on top of ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’, 1............ 2............ 3!!! Team Angle win Lethal Lockdown!!!
Winners: Team Angle at 22:25

‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out to a huge pop from the crowd and Rob Van Dam slowly climbs off of Samoa Joe and gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee as RVD helps team captain Kurt Angle to his feet and the duo raise each other’s hands in the air and embrace. Hernandez then climbs through the gap to the top of the Cage and joins Angle and Van Dam, congratulating them whilst Jeff Jarrett remains in the corner of the ring after being Gored into a trash can by Rhino, who leaves the ring along with Matt Morgan.

Mike Tenay: Wow! What a match, ladies and gentlemen, and Team Angle have prevailed over Team Flair in Lethal Lockdown!

Mick Foley: That was fantastic, Mike, it was brutal, it was violent, but in the end it was all worth it for Team Angle and now there are no excuses or come-backs that Ric Flair can conjure up.

Ric Flair is irate, and he throws a tantrum at ringside as Chelsea tries to calm him down and Angle, Hernandez and Van Dam climb down from the top of the Cage, leaving the ring through the cage door as Flair confronts the trio on the ramp, red-faced and livid as he shouts at Angle, but Kurt looks at Hernandez and Van Dam and laughs, before knocking Flair down with a clothesline!‘Gold Metal’ then plays after RVD’s music momentarily stopped and the victorious participants make their way up the ramp, eventually followed by Jarrett once he has recovered.

Mike Tenay: Without a doubt, that Lethal Lockdown Match will be remembered by us and the TNA fans for years to come, but so will the match coming up next, because in a few moments’ time, ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles puts the TNA World Heavwyeight Championship on the line against ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy! Christy Hemme is standing by with AJ backstage, take it away, Christy.

The camera cuts backstage, where Christy Hemme is standing next to the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles, whose face is covered by his hood on his turquoise jacket as he looks down at the floor whilst holding his title over his shoulder.

Christy Hemme: Thanks, Mike, I’m standing with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles who will defend his title against Jeff Hardy in just a few moments’ time and AJ, do you have any final comments going into your match with Jeff?

Styles then looks up and flicks his hood back, as the crowd cheer when AJ’s face is shown.

AJ Styles: Seven months... for seven long months, I’ve been TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Christy, I’ve defended this title against guys like Sting... Samoa Joe... Christopher Daniels... Kurt Angle... Mr. Anderson... and I’ve beaten them all. Now, I have Jeff Hardy challenging me for this title, and seven months ago, I would never have imagined that I’d be facing him, but I am and it’s happening right here tonight.

Cheap pop from the crowd.

AJ Styles: And I’m just like all of these TNA fans, I can’t wait to face Jeff, I’m shaking in my boots right now... but so should Jeff Hardy, if he knows how long I’ve been TNA World Champion, how big a part of this company I’ve been, and all of the guys I’ve beaten. Jeff has been in Steel Cage Matches in the past, I know that, but hardly any of them have been in TNA, if any, and it’s a whole different ball game here in TNA.

More cheers from the crowd.

AJ Styles: I live TNA, Christy; I eat, drink, breathe and sleep TNA, let alone this TNA World Heavyweight Championship. I know how TNA works and ticks, and TNA knows how I do. Jeff Hardy doesn’t know that though, he doesn’t know me, but I know something very important, and that’s the fact that no matter how much as I respect him, Jeff Hardy won’t be walking out of Dallas, Texas tonight with this belt.

Styles walks away to a pop from the crowd and the camera then cuts elsewhere, where Jeremy Borash is standing alongside ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy.

Jeremy Borash: This is Jeremy Borash, I’m joined by ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy who will challenge ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in a few moments and Jeff, what are your thoughts going into this huge match with AJ?

Jeff Hardy: I have a lot going through my mind right now, JB, I’ve not gonna get ahead of myself or make premature judgments. One side of my mind is thinking about winning tonight and what the future holds for me, and the other side is thinking about losing tonight and what the future holds for me. But anything can happen, I know that AJ Styles is gonna bring his A-game tonight, and that’s exactly what I’m gonna bring as well, and over the past few weeks AJ’s kind of lost his focus, he’s been trying to provoke some bad blood between me and him, but ever since Destination X I’ve had my mind set on tonight.

Cheers from the crowd.

Jeff Hardy: I haven’t let anything distract me or get in my way, I respect AJ as an athlete and a person and nothing will change that, but the winds of change are blowing here in TNA, and tonight, they’ll be blowing through the Creatures of the Night...

Cheap pop.

Jeff Hardy: ... and they’ll blow AJ Styles away when ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ becomes the TNA World... Heavyweight... Champion!

Hardy makes his signature finger taunt for the camera before walking away to a big pop from the crowd. The camera then enters the Dallas Convention Center and ‘Get Ready To Fly’ blares out to a pop from the crowd as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles makes his way out, walking down the ramp and flicking his hood back before throwing his arms out and taking his title off his shoulder, entering the Cage and holding up his title before holding it in his hands as he waits for his opponent to arrive in the Arena. Then, ‘Modest’ plays and the lights go out in the Arena with multi-colored lasers shooting around the building as Jeff Hardy walks out, dancing around on the stage in unorthodox fashion before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and then entering the Cage, immediately climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring and posing for the crowd before climbing back down and coming face-to-face with Styles.

Steel Cage Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles© Vs Jeff Hardy
The bell rings for the main event of the night to begin, and AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy both walk towards the center of the ring, having a stare-down which lasts several moments as they talk trash to each other which is expected on such a big occasion, before AJ brings an end to the ‘conversation’ of sorts, slapping Hardy across the face! The crowd respond with ‘Ohhh’s as Styles looks defiantly at Jeff who clutches his jaw before launching himself at AJ, flooring him and climbing on top of the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, pummeling him with rights and lefts to the face before climbing off and backing away, as a startled Styles hesitantly gets to his feet and they then lock up, Hardy getting AJ in a standing headlock. Styles pushes Jeff away into the ropes but when Hardy comes back he floors AJ with a shoulder tackle and Styles quickly gets up after that, running off the ropes as Hardy lies down on the mat and Styles runs over him, rebounding off the ropes again as Jeff springs back up to his feet and takes AJ down with an arm drag. Styles recovers quickly again and he charges towards Hardy again who floors ‘The Phenomenal One’ with another arm drag and AJ gets back up again, this time not falling for it though as he remains in the corner of the ring and shakes his head at Jeff as Styles approaches the center of the ring and he and Hardy lock up once again.

The tie-up doesn’t last long though, as Styles kicks Jeff in the mid-section and wrenches Hardy’s arm, hitting ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ with half a dozen forearms before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and then running towards him, jumping onto Jeff in position for a Monkey Flip but Hardy has other ideas though, pushing Styles away and down to the mat. AJ rolls backwards and gets to his feet, running at Jeff again who kicks Styles in the mid-section, running off the ropes and driving AJ’s face into the canvas and hitting a bulldog before making the cover, 1............ AJ gets the shoulder up, and Hardy couldn’t have expected anything more than that with this bout still being in its early stages and not much damage being done to Styles. Jeff gets to his feet and bends down to get AJ to his feet but Styles brings Hardy down to the mat with a drop toe hold and AJ gets up, taking Jeff’s arm and then somersaulting across his back, doing damage to Hardy’s arm before getting up again. AJ continues to target Jeff’s arm, stomping at it repeatedly and then running off the ropes, going to drop an elbow on it but Hardy rolls out of the way as Styles misses his attempted elbow. Both competitors get back to their feet and Jeff hits AJ with a right hand, then following up with lefts and rights until Styles is in the corner of the ring as Hardy stomps away at Styles’ mid-section.

AJ eventually sinks down, and Jeff holds onto the top rope, jumping to the middle rope and straightening himself out position-wise before hitting Styles with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Hardy gets back to his feet and hits AJ with a few more stomps before backing away into the opposite corner of the ring and then sprinting forward, going for a baseball slide but Styles moves out of the way as Jeff ends up hitting the Cage with the double-footed kick and AJ, on his feet, drags Hardy in the middle of the ring by his arms, hitting him with an elbow drop across the sternum before getting back up and doing the same again, subsequently making the cover as he hooks both of Jeff’s legs, 1............ 2...... Hardy kicks out. Styles lets go of Jeff’s legs and gets back up, getting Hardy up and wrenching his arm, jumping onto the ropes and springboarding off of them, hitting Jeff with an arm drag and when Hardy gets back up, he runs at AJ but Styles leap-frogs ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ running off the ropes and flying through the air, hitting Hardy with a flying clothesline! Styles covers again, 1............ 2......... Hardy gets the shoulder up.

AJ then gets Jeff in a headlock and tries to apply as much pressure as possible, a motion which is reinforced by the expression on Styles’ face, that of someone who is exerting a lot of energy on one thing and it appears to be working as Jeff waves his arms around in desperation, slamming his feet against the mat and getting the crowd in the Dallas Convention Center to get behind him as they chant ‘Let’s Go, Hardy!’ which is countered by a ‘Let’s Go, AJ!’ chant of paralleled enthusiasm. Hardy eventually gets to his feet and after a handful of elbows to AJ’s mid-section, Jeff escapes from the TNA World Heavyweight Champion’s headlock, as he kicks Styles in the gut, gets him a front face-lock and lifts him into the air, dropping AJ forward with a Suplex Facebuster! Jeff grabs Styles’ legs and pins him, making the cover: 1............ 2............ Styles gets the shoulder up.

That was the first near fall of this TNA World Heavyweight Championship Steel Cage Match so far, which would indicate that Jeff currently has the upper hand in this bout, and Hardy gets to his feet, bringing Styles up as well and grabbing him by the back of his neck, running across the ring with AJ still in his grasps and throwing ‘The Phenomenal One’ face-first into the Cage! Styles falls back down to the mat with the surroundings of the Steel Cage being used effectively for the first time so far in this contest and Jeff then jumps onto the ropes, springboarding off them and turning around in mid-air, hitting AJ with a Springboard Leg Drop!

Hardy then makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Styles gets the shoulder up again, another near fall for the challenger Hardy who gets to his feet and gets AJ up, Irish whipping the TNA World Heavyweight Champion into the corner of the ring and then running at him, but Styles counters with a boot to the face of Hardy, AJ’s first offence in this bout in a while and when Jeff recovers, he runs at Styles again but AJ kicks Hardy in the mid-section, rendering ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ docile for a few moments as AJ then climbs to the top rope and manages to get Jeff in a front face-lock, jumping off the top rope and nailing Hardy with a Tornado DDT! AJ then hooks Jeff’s leg and covers, 1............ 2............ Jeff kicks out! That was the near first fall of the match for the reigning Champion AJ Styles, and ‘The Phenomenal One’ keeps his composure, seeming unfazed that Hardy kicked out as he then gets back up, assuming control of the match as he gets Jeff up and places his head in between his legs, then trying to grab Hardy’s legs, but ‘The Creature of the Night’ counters, hitting AJ with a back body drop! Jeff then takes Styles’ legs and holds them open as he jumps high into the air and drops a Leg Drop onto AJ’s gut before covering the Champion, 1............ 2............ AJ gets the shoulder up!

Jeff Hardy gets back to his feet and runs his hands through his unorthodox black and green hair before bending down and grabbing AJ Styles, but Styles fights back, hitting Hardy with a few clubbing blows to the mid-section and then fighting to his feet, Irish whipping ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ into the corner of the ring, but Hardy jumps to the top rope, and hits AJ with the Whisper In The Wind!! Both competitors lie on the canvas for several moments, and Jeff lays an arm over Styles, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! AJ gets the shoulder up! After that, AJ and Hardy remain down until Jeff is the first to get up, and he climbs to the top rope, motioning to the crowd before going for a leg drop from the top rope, but Styles rolls out of the way just in the nick of time as Hardy crashes and burns on the canvas! With Jeff in a seated position, AJ gets back up and runs off the ropes, hitting Hardy with a double-footed dropkick to the sternum and then making the cover, 1............ 2............ Hardy kicks out! The TNA World Heavyweight Champion, on his knees, glances at the referee Earl Hebner who has nothing to say to Styles and AJ then struggles to his feet, stomping away at Jeff for a few moments before climbing to the top rope and eagerly waiting in anticipation for Hardy to get up. Eventually, Jeff does, and Styles flies off the top rope, hitting Hardy with his signature Flying Forearm Smash and then immediately laying his arm over Jeff to make the cover, 1............ 2............ Hardy gets the shoulder up!

The near falls just keep coming in this TNA World Heavyweight Championship Steel Cage Main Event, and Styles begins to get frustrated, as he slams his hands against the mat in anger and then sitting Hardy up, locking ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ in a sleeper hold. AJ yells ‘Quit! Quit, damnit!’ as Jeff appears to be fading away, and Hebner raises Hardy’s arm up before dropping it once. Earl lifts it up again and it drops twice, and Hebner lifts it up a third and final time, with Styles winning this match and retaining his title if Jeff doesn’t respond this time, but before his hand can touch the floor a third time, Hardy stops it and begins to have a re-surgence just like always in this situation, battling to his feet and hitting AJ with a few blows to the mid-section before lifting Styles off his feet into the air and planting ‘The Phenomenal One’ with a Back Suplex!

Both Hardy and Styles remain down as it is back to square one in this bout until both competitors get back up at the same time, beginning to sluggishly exchange right hands for several moments. Jeff begins to gain the upper hand in the slug-fest, until AJ cuts it short with a kick to the gut of Hardy, then lifting him up for a scoop slam but Jeff lands on his feet behind Styles and hits AJ with a Jumping Leg Sweep (Dolph Ziggler style)! Hardy then covers AJ again, 1............ 2............ Styles kicks out! Neither combatant can seem to be able to make a significant break-through so far with another un-successful pin attempt this time coming from Hardy, who then sits AJ up and gets the first-ever TNA Grandslam Champion in a Body Scissors submission manoeuvre.

Hardy keeps the pressure applied to Styles’ mid-section for several moments as AJ writhes in pain, trying to pull Jeff’s legs away but to no avail and Styles then resorts to elbows, which he uses on Hardy who is behind him until Jeff inadvertently releases the submission hold and AJ struggles to his feet, getting Hardy up and dragging him by his hair towards the Cage, repeatedly slamming Jeff’s face into the Steel and letting go as a groggy Hardy leans against the Cage structure to keep him on his feet otherwise he’d be down and out on the mat right now and Styles then runs off the ropes, charging across the ring like a freight train and jumping through the air, launching himself into ‘The Charismatic Enigma’! Hardy then falls to the canvas and AJ immediately makes the cover, demanding victory this time with his eyes fixed on the referee Earl Hebner who makes the count, 1............ 2............ Hardy gets the shoulder up! The eyes of ‘The Phenomenal One’ instantly light up after Jeff avoids defeat once again and he gets to his feet, walking towards Hebner and shouting at him ‘That was three! That was three, God damnit!’ before calming himself down and regaining his composure, grabbing Jeff by his hair and lifting his head up before slamming Hardy’s face into the mat, then doing so multiple times.

AJ then gets Jeff up and places his head in between his legs, out-stretching his arms and calling for the Styles Clash, but Hardy fights out of it and pushes AJ into the ropes, subsequently kicking Styles in the mid-section and going for the Twist Of Fate, but the TNA World Heavyweight Champion avoids it and pushes Hardy into the ropes, following it up by taking ‘The Creature of the Night’ down with a picture-perfect dropkick! Styles, on his knees, looks directly at the camera and smirks, out-stretching his arms and remarking ‘I’m phenomenal!’ before getting up to his feet and dragging Jeff by his arms towards the corner of the ring. Styles subsequently climbs to the top rope and poses for the Dallas crowd once again, before going for the Spiral Tap, but Hardy rolls out of the way as Styles crashes into the mat, failing to meet his target!!

You would think that the ball is in Jeff’s court now, but he fails to capitalize, as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ lies next to Styles having used a fair bit of energy to manage to avoid that Spiral Tap. Hardy then struggles to his feet with assistance from the ropes and ever-so slowly walks across the ring, gradually but surely climbing to the top rope and posing for the crowd, looking like he’s going to go for the Swanton Bomb, but ‘The Phenomenal One’ pulls himself up with the ropes and violently shakes them, putting Hardy off who loses his balance and Styles then climbs to the top rope with Jeff, jumping onto Hardy, and hitting Jeff with a Hurricanrana from the top rope! Styles lands in a seated position on top of Hardy, so the cover is made, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Jeff kicks out again!

Styles cannot believe it, and he grabs Hardy by his hair, repeatedly hitting Jeff with blows to the head before getting to his feet and getting Hardy up, hitting him with an uppercut which sends Jeff staggering backwards into the corner of the ring. Styles walks towards Hardy and climbs to the second rope on top of him, hitting him with punches as the crowd count along, but before the tenth blow AJ takes a moment to out-stretch his arms and pose and it almost costs him as Jeff lifts Styles up in position for a Powerbomb! However, AJ just about manages to escape, as he slips out of Hardy’s grasps, and when Jeff turns around, Styles nails Hardy with the Pele Kick!!

AJ is unable to take advantage straight away though, as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ staggered backwards rather way before falling to the mat and ‘The Phenomenal One’ ever-so slowly crawls across the ring, eventually managing to lay an arm over Hardy and make the cover which could end it all rigt here, 1............ 2............ 3-NO!!! Somehow, some way, Hardy gets the shoulder up again and AJ cannot believe it, as he looks at up at Earl Hebner with a look of disbelief on his face and he grabs Hebner’s shirt to help himself to his feet, yelling at an innocent Hebner that ‘This should be done by now! You hear me? Done!’ before trudging towards Hardy and slowly getting him to his feet, but out of no-where Jeff hits Styles with a Sit-out Jawbreaker which sends AJ back-pedalling until the TNA World Heavyweight Champion is only being kept up on his feet by the Steel Cage.

Hardy gets back up and runs off the ropes, sprinting towards Styles and flying through the air, but AJ pulls Earl Hebner towards him and moves out of the way as Hardy sandwiches Hebner in between him and the Cage, knocking Hebner out!!! Things just got interesting as Hebner is now down, and Styles looks to capitalize, running at Hardy, but Jeff kicks AJ in the mid-section and nails him with the Twist Of Fate!!! The crowd go nuts as Hardy connects with his patented finishing manoeuvre, but once again Jeff cannot make the most of the situation as he is exhausted and he lies on the mat before ultimately making it to his feet and climbing to the top rope at a snail’s pace, posing for the crowd... but Jeff doesn’t do anything.

Hardy shakes his head which gets a mixed reaction from the audience who are confused, but they begin to cheer when ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ climbs to the top of the Cage! Almost all of the fans are on their feet, as Jeff out-stretches his arms and poses and Mike Tenay shouts ‘NO! DON’T DO IT, JEFF, JUST ESCAPE THE CAGE AND WIN THE TITLE!’ but his pleas do nothing, as Hardy jumps from 20 feet in the air from the top of the Cage, going for the Swanton Bomb, but Styles moves out of the way!!! The crowd chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ repeatedly after Hardy attempted a Swanton Bomb from the top of the Cage but failed, and after several moments, once the dust has settled AJ is back up and he slowly places Jeff’s head in between his legs, then lifting his legs up, and nailing Hardy with the Styles Clash!!!

Styles immediately follows up with the cover in a seated position, having surely won now after all of the punishment that Jeff has took in this match including jumping from the top of a 20-foot high Steel Cage and only hitting the canvas, and Earl Hebner who is barely conscious, ever-so slowly makes one of the slowest counts in the history of professional wrestling with all of the fans in the capacity crowd of the Dallas Convention Center waiting in anticipation to see the outcome: 1............ ............ ............ 2............ ............ ............ 3!!! IT IS FINALLY OVER!!!
Winner and STILL TNA World Heavyweight Champion: AJ Styles at 20:31

‘Get Ready To Fly’ blares out and AJ Styles is confirmed as the winner of the match, as Styles lets go of the pin and dumbfoundedly stares at Jeff Hardy who is barely moving, before slowly struggling to his feet and keeping himself up in the corner of the ring, beind handed his TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he clutches to his chest. AJ staggers forward and holds the title up, getting a standing ovation from every single fan in the crowd after that spectacular match-up.

Mike Tenay: We have seen some epic encounters tonight, we have seen just about everything at Lockdown in Dallas, Texas, but nothing as spectacular as this. For over twenty minutes, AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy fought their hearts out, and in the end Styles won to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Mick Foley: When Jeff has recovered and he looks at himself in the mirror, to be honest the only person he has to blame for not being TNA World Heavyweight Champion is himself. He had AJ Styles down and out, he was at the top of the Cage and he could have climbed down to the floor to win the title, but instead he wanted to give the fans a moment to remember, and in the end that cost him so, so dearly, Mike.

Mike Tenay: What an effort from these two men here tonight, they deserve all of the credit in the world right now.

Styles stands over Hardy and hoists the TNA World Heavyweight Title over his shoulder, lifting Jeff up as Hardy regains his composure and shaking hands with Jeff as he raises his hand in the air and the two embrace before AJ subsequently leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, high-fiving several fans on his way to the locker room whilst ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ remains in the ring, reflecting on what could have been tonight at Lockdown...

Mike Tenay: Thank you for joining us tonight for Lockdown on behalf of myself and Mick Foley, and we’ll see you tomorrow night on Impact! Goodnight, everybody!
