8. 3-Way Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle
Hardy or Angle just don't seem like they are gonna win.

Anderson for champ, please?

5. Falls Count Anywhere Match for the TNA Global Championship
D'Angelo Dinero vs. Rhino
Very good rivalry which will finally end with Dinero prevailing.

Daniels had the title for a while already, so I think Kaz will get the win.

8. 3-Way Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle
I'd like to think all three will be involved in the KotM match at the next PPV, so I don't see a title change happening here. Would be surprising if it happened tbh.

6. Grudge Match
Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Van Dam
Again, looking ahead, I think RVD will be invovled in the title scene and involved in KotM so I would think you'd give him the win here. It's the safe choice, but I think that's where you'll go.

7. Jeff Jarrett vs. Mr. Anderson
Same reasoning as above tbh. I expect Anderson to make the step up.

5. Falls Count Anywhere Match for the TNA Global Championship
D'Angelo Dinero vs. Rhino
I just don't see Rhino as Global Champion right now.

3. TNA X Division Championship
Christopher Daniels vs. Kazarian
Could be shennaigans invovled, but I think Daniels will retain. Rematch on the cards though, maybe with Kendrick/Lethal added to the mix?

1. 3-Way Elimination Tag Team Match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship
The Motor City Machine Guns vs. Beer Money vs. Eric Young & Kevin Nash
I think there will be a Guns/BMI rematch down the line. It may be BMI win here to set up the rematch, but I don't think so. Either way, Young and Nash won't be winning tonight.

2. TNA Knockouts Championship
Daffney vs. Tara
I think it'll happen.

4.6-Man Tag Team Match
World Elite (Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams & Matt Morgan) vs. The Latin American Exchange & Rob Terry
{If the World Elite lose, they must disband}
I like WE, but it's time for them to go their seperate ways. Especially Morgan.

Bonus Questions

1. Put the matches in order.
Yup.

2. What will be the longest match?
AJ/Angle/Jeff.

3. What will be the shortest match?
Knockouts Match.

4. How many Championships will change hands?
One.

5. Will there be any controversial finishes? (Interference, DQ, count-out, low blow, weapon use)
Yes. As I said above, shennanigans in the Daniles/Kaz match.

6. Who will take the pinfall in the 6-Man Tag Team Match, and who will make the pinfall? (1 point for each)
Bruti takes the fall. Hernandez stands tall.

7. Which teams will be eliminated first and second in the 3-Way Elimination Tag Team Match? (1 point for each)
Nash and Young, then Beer Money

8. Who will take the pinfall in the 3-Way Main Event?
Angle.

This is one of the threads I follow. I'm gonna try make more of an effort to review from now on. I'll defo be back to review the show once it's posted.

I haven't read the entire thread, but saw your Sacrifice videos, very creative, I like it. It's a nice touch, very good for building the PPV and I can almost see them in my minds eye.

The pay per view opening video begins with a blank screen, but a quote appears in write writing:

"Without risk, there is no reward." - Barry J. Farber.

Shots of Kurt Angle headbutting Samoa Joe back in 2006, and applying an Ankle Lock to Sting as another quote appears.

"Those things which are precious are saved only by sacrifice." - David Kenyon Webster.

Shots of Jeff Hardy standing on the second rope in the corner of the ring posing, and attempting a Swanton Bomb from the top of the Cage at Lockdown, followed by another quote.

"Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another - too often ending in the loss of both." - Tryon Edwards.

Shots of AJ Styles stood under spotlights with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in his hands, and hitting a 450 Splash on Kurt Angle.

"The sacrifice which causes sorrow to the doer of the sacrifice is no sacrifice. Real sacrifice lightens the mind of the doer and gives him a sense of peace and joy." - Mahatama Gandhi.

Shots of Mr. Anderson reaching up for his microphone, and hitting Sting with a Mic Drop.

"The greater danger for most of us lies in not setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark." - Michelangelo.

Shots of Jeff Jarrett posing for the crowd, and smashing a Guitar over Sting's head. Then we see many consecutive clips of Matt Morgan hitting Hernandez with a Carbon Footprint, Christopher Daniels hitting Amazing Red with the Angel's Wings, Kazarian hitting Kiyoshi with a Wave Of The Future, The Motor City Machine Guns holding the TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money posing, Kevin Nash holding up his Feast Or Fired briefcase, Daffney on her knees screaming in the ring, Hardy hitting Samoa Joe with the Twist Of Fate, Angle hitting Styles with the Angle Slam and Styles hitting Hardy with the the Styles Clash before a shot of Angle, Hardy and Styles all standing in the ring with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship barely visible in the background. Then, the screen goes black and the following words appear.

"Prepare to make the ultimate sacrifice."



TNA Sacrifice
Ocean Center, Daytona Beach, Florida
May 16th, 2010


We then enter the Ocean Center and the pyro goes off on the stage as the camera observes the wrestling ring with its black ropes and then orbits the Arena, showing the fans on their feet and cheering as many of them hold signs up in an attempt to get noticed. We then cut to Mike Tenay and Mick Foley who are sat at the announce table at ringside and are ready to welcome us to the pay per view, both dressed in suits.

Mike Tenay: Hello everybody, and welcome to TNA Sacrifice, live on pay per view and emanating from the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida! I’m Mike Tenay alongside 'The Hardcore Legend' Mick Foley and tonight the most coveted and prestigious title in professional wrestling, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, will be on the line in a Three Way Dance! 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles defends the gold against 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy and 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle!

Mick Foley: AJ Styles has been TNA World Heavyweight Champion for eight months now and as every pay per view comes and goes, the odds stacked against him get higher and higher; his match tonight with Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle certainly follows that pattern, Mike.

Mike Tenay: The rivalry which has lasted three months finally comes to an end tonight, as Desmond Wolfe Rob Van Dam finally square off one-on-one for the first time ever!

Mick Foley: Wolfe and Van Dam are two of the best in TNA today so I’m expecting a great match tonight from these two, but that could be veiled by their determination to tear each other apart so it could degenerate into an all-out brawl.

Mike Tenay: Also tonight, the resident loudmouth of TNA Wrestling, Mr. Anderson, squares off against the TNA founder Jeff Jarrett!

Mick Foley: This rivalry began when Mr. Anderson defeated Jeff Jarrett after the use of brass knuckles in the tournament to determine the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and although the result of the tournament was indecisive, Anderson and Jarrett’s dislike for each other is as clear as day and they’ll go at it tonight at Sacrifice.

Mike Tenay: “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero puts the TNA Global Championship on the line against his old rival, “The War Machine” Rhino, in a Falls Count Anywhere match which is sure to be brutal given the hatred shared between these two.

Mick Foley: This match is not just about the title, in a sense it’s about family pride for Dinero too, after all Rhino did attack Pope’s father on Impact a few weeks ago, Mike, and Dinero will not stop tonight until he is satisfied with the damage he will do to Rhino.

Mike Tenay: We will determine an undisputed TNA X Division Champion tonight when the two co-Champions, “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels and Kazarian, finally go one-on-one!

Mick Foley: There has been so much controversy surrounding the title since Lockdown when Daniels and Kazarian became co-Champions so I’m glad we’ll finally see a fair resolution tonight at Sacrifice.

Mike Tenay: Plus, Daffney defends her TNA Knockouts Championship against the former Champion who she won it from last month at Lockdown, Tara!

Mick Foley: Tara has every right to be here, she has invoked her re-match clause to get this title opportunity, and furthermore she wasn’t even pinned at Lockdown to lose the TNA Knockouts Championship so she wants justice to be served tonight.

Mike Tenay: And last but not least, the Latin American Exchange and Rob Terry face the British Invasion and the leader of the World Elite, “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan and that match is right now!

“Sleeping Giant” blares out and the British Invasion walk out, with Matt Morgan behind them dressed in a navy silk robe. Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams both pose for the camera before walking to the ring and Morgan throws off his robe, raising his hands into the air before sauntering down the ramp and entering the squared circle with Magnus and Williams.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, this opening contest of Sacrifice is a Six-Man Tag Team Match! Introducing first, from the United Kingdom, at a combined weight of four-hundred-and-seventy-five pounds, the British Invasion and from Fairfield, Connecticut, weighing three-hundred-and-ten pounds, “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan!

Then, “To Live And Die In LAX” hits and the Latin American Exchange and Rob Terry walk out, as Hernandez punches the air in sync with his pyro and Terry flexes his muscles whilst Homicide makes the LAX gesture with his fingers. The trio make their way down the ramp and enter the ring with Hernandez and Homicide both climbing to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring to pose for the crowd whilst their opponents stand outside.

David Penzer: And their opponents, at a combined weight of four-hundred-and-ninety pounds, the Latin American Exchange and from Swansea, Wales, weighing two-hundred-and-sixty pounds, “The Freak” Rob Terry!

Match One
British Invasion & Matt Morgan vs. LAX & Rob Terry
Six-Man Tag Team Match


After lengthy discussions in both camps, on one side of the ring Brutus Magnus and Matt Morgan climb out onto the ring apron and on the other side Hernandez and Rob Terry do the same, as it appears that Doug Williams and Homicide, the two smallest competitors in this Six-Man Tag Team Match, will get this opening contest at Sacrifice underway. Homicide and Williams lock up, and Williams tries to get Homicide in a headlock but Homicide keeps Williams’ arms away until Doug kicks him in the mid-section and hits Homicide with right hands before Irish whipping him into the ropes. Homicide bounces off the ropes and comes running back, jumping over Williams who lies on the floor and then goes into the ropes again but stops himself. Williams runs at Homicide but Homicide leap-frogs him and when Williams turns around he runs at Homicide again and goes for a clothesline but Homicide avoids it again, ducking under Williams’ arm and running off the ropes once more before finally bringing an end to the exchange with a dropkick which brings the Englishman down to the mat. Homicide quickly leaps onto Williams and makes the first cover of the match, albeit a very optimistic one. ONE! Williams throws Homicide off of him and gets back to his feet.

Both competitors come to a stale-mate and stand in opposite corners of the ring before approaching each other cautiously once again but Williams kicks Homicide in the mid-section and hits him with an uppercut, sending Homicide back-pedalling into the corner. Brutus Magnus and Matt Morgan are standing next to him and Williams holds out his hand, as Magnus answers the call and enters the ring. Magnus and Williams double-team Homicide, repeatedly hitting him with stomps until he sinks down to a seated position in the corner and the Brits continue to bombard Homicide but the referee Andrew Thomas instructs Williams to leave the ring and Doug reluctantly does, but he has a smirk on his face as he is extremely confident that his side have the upper hand now. Magnus lifts Homicide to his feet, keeping him trapped in the corner of the ring and Brutus hits Homicide with knife-edge chops to the chest over and over again, getting several “Wooooo”s from the Dayton Beach crowd in honour of Ric Flair.

Magnus observes the damage he did with those chops for a few moments before backing away into the opposite corner and then running towards Homicide but Homicide runs out of the corner and hits Magnus with a dropkick to the legs, sending Brutus face-first into the mat. Homicide now has the chance to get out of the match and he crawls across the canvas towards Hernandez and Rob Terry who are both eager to get into the contest but before he can make the tag Magnus recovers and grabs Homicide by his legs, dragging him back into the middle of the ring away from his tag team partners and getting Homicide in a seated position. Magnus puts his knee against Homicide’s spine and puts his hands around Homicide’s neck, pulling back with sheer force for several moments as Homicide writhes in agony before letting go once he is satisfied and subsequently getting to his feet. Magnus gets Homicide up and wrenches his arm, pulling Homicide in and flooring him with an STO before dropping to the canvas and locking Homicide in an arm-bar.

The crowd, realizing that Homicide desperately needs to make the tag, get behind the man from Brooklyn, New York and some clap their hands to try and spur him on whereas others chant “Homicide!” repeatedly. It appears to help, as Homicide sits up and edges across the ring before finally making it to the ropes, which means Magnus is forced to let go. Homicide retreats into the corner of the ring where none of the other competitors in this match are situated and Magnus walks towards him, but Homicide fends him off with a kick to the mid-section before he climbs to the second rope. Magnus recovers and tries to climb up there but Homicide hits him with a handful of right hands to the face, before getting Magnus in a front facelock and nailing him with a Tornado DDT! The crowd pop and Homicide and Magnus both lie in the middle of the ring, trying to catch their breath, before both competitors begin to make their way towards their respective corners of the ring where they can make the tag. Magnus tags Williams back in as Matt Morgan’s eagerness to get into the match continues to grow, and Homicide finally gets out of the match, tagging Rob Terry in and leaving Hernandez waiting to enter.

Williams is in first and he runs towards Terry when the Welshman hasn’t even got both feet in the ring but nonetheless Terry knocks Williams down with a thunderous Clothesline! Terry gets fired up and jumps up and down on the spot, yelling “Get up!” at Williams who does so but probably not at Terry’s request and when he is up, Terry lifts him into the air and plants Doug back on the mat with a scoop slam. “The Freak” then runs off the ropes but Morgan interferes, hitting Terry with a forearm to the back of the head. However, it doesn’t appear to do any damage and Terry slowly turns around, glaring at Morgan who smirks at Terry but not for long as Rob grabs Morgan by the throat! Before he can do any more to Morgan though, Williams is back up and he rolls up Terry! ONE! TWO! Terry kicks out!

Both competitors get back up and the defiant Williams charges at Terry again but Terry lifts Williams up in a Military Press position and wows the Daytona Beach crowd as he keeps an anxious Doug up there for several moments. Williams shouts “Put me down! Put me down, you buffoon!” but Terry keeps him in the air and then throws Doug over to the other side of the ring! The crowd cheer and Terry raises his hands above his head, basking in the positive response from the audience before walking over to Williams and getting him to his feet. Terry brings him over to the corner of the ring and tags in Hernandez for the first time, as Hernandez gets a big pop when he enters the ring and he and Terry both get Williams in a front facelock before lifting him into the air and dropping Doug down to the canvas with a Double Suplex! Terry leaves the ring and Hernandez makes the cover, ONE! TWO! Morgan enters the ring and breaks the count!

“Super Mex” turns his head to Morgan, his former tag team partner but now rival, who grins at Hernandez and leaves the ring before Hernandez can get his hands on him. Morgan eventually climbs back onto the ring apron and Hernandez shakes his head in disappointment, getting Williams to his feet and turning his attention back to Morgan, saying “You’re a dead man, Morgan” but this gives Doug an opening and he hits Hernandez with some blows to the mid-section, then kicking him in the gut and planting “Super Mex” with a DDT! Williams takes a few moments to regain his composure before getting to his feet and tagging Morgan into the match for the first time. Morgan enters the ring with a smile on his face and he stands over Hernandez, outstretching his arms and smirking before he gets his former tag team partner to his feet and holds him up by his face, shouting directly at him “Who’s a dead man now, Hernandez?! Who’s a dead man now?! I think you are, you little...” but before Morgan can finish, Hernandez begins to fight back with right hands!

Hernandez hits Morgan with blows over and over again with the big man unable to resist before Hernandez runs off the ropes and looks to go for a Shoulder Tackle but before he can, Morgan staggers back into the corner of the ring and tags Brutus Magnus back in. Magnus enters the ring and appears to offer Hernandez a free hit at him, pointing his finger at his cheek but as Hernandez approaches, Magnus runs at him but Hernandez sees it coming and throws Magnus across the ring with a high-impact Belly-to-Belly Suplex! Hernandez springs back up and pounds his fist against his heart, letting out a reverberating roar before waiting in the corner for Magnus to get to his feet. Magnus slowly gets to his feet and Hernandez runs past him off the ropes before directing himself towards his opponent, and nailing Magnus with the Mexican Boulder Shoulder! (A shoulder tackle with extra force, basically) Magnus flies across the ring after that and Hernandez pounces onto him, making the cover, ONE! TWO! THREE!

LAX & Rob Terry def. British Invasion & Matt Morgan at 10:25

David Penzer: Here are your winners... the Latin American Exchange and Rob Terry!

“Te Gusta O No!” blares out to a pop from the crowd and Hernandez gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee before Homicide and Rob Terry enter the ring and they raise Hernandez’s hands up in the air as well. Hernandez embraces with Homicide and Terry whilst Doug Williams enters the ring to check on Brutus Magnus who was the victim of the pinfall and Matt Morgan shakes his head in disappointment at the sight of his team losing before leaving the ring apron and walking up the ramp, not looking back once whilst the celebration continues in the ring with the victorious team.

Mike Tenay: They did it! LAX and Rob Terry are victorious against the British Invasion and Matt Morgan, but I expect that Hernandez will not rest until he gets Morgan in the ring one-on-one!

Mick Foley: We didn’t see much from Hernandez and Morgan together in the ring, we only got a few short moments of them going at it and most of that was taken up by 'The Blueprint' displaying his unrivalled arrogance so I cannot wait to see Hernandez and Morgan go at it one-on-one.

Mike Tenay: A great match and a great way to kick off Sacrifice, we’ve still got a lot more to come tonight including the Three-Way Dance for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship; 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles puts the title on the line against 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy and 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle.

Mick Foley: But up next, the TNA Knockouts Championship is on the line as Daffney defends the title against the woman she won it from last month at Lockdown inside the Steel Cage, Tara!

Backstage, Rhino has just entered the Arena with a bag over his shoulder and he is walking through the parking lot, when Christy Hemme runs up to “The War Machine” with a microphone.

Christy Hemme: Rhino! Can I have a minute of your time?

Rhino stops and looks at Christy, breathing heavily and scowling.

Christy Hemme: I’ll take that as a yes... Rhino, do you have any final comments before you face “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero in a Falls Count Anywhere Match for the TNA Global Championship later tonight?

Rhino: ... No.

Rhino storms away with Christy looking unsatisfied with the answer she got. The camera then cuts to the announce table with Mike Tenay and Mick Foley.

Mike Tenay: Some strong words from “The War Machine” Rhino for his opponent later tonight, the TNA Global Champion “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero.

Mick Foley: Indeed, Professor, but Rhino will have to put his money where his mouth is, however this is a Falls Count Anywhere Match, it is Rhino’s ideal environment so in my opinion, as high as I rate him, Pope is putting his title in serious jeopardy tonight.

“Broken” blares out and Tara walks out, getting a good reaction from the crowd. Tara, keeping a straight face, motions around her waist that she will win this match before striding down the ramp and stepping into the ring, placing the Cage where her Spider, Poison, is situated in the corner of the ring.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this TNA Knockouts Championship match! Introducing first, the challenger, from Los Angeles, California... Tara!

Then, “Scream” plays and the TNA Knockouts Daffney makes her way out with the TNA Knockouts Championship around her waist, looking slightly hunch-backed as she cackles whilst walking down the ramp. Daffney enters the ring and drops to her knees, letting out an ear-splitting scream which gets heat from the crowd, before removing her title and putting it in the corner of the ring.

David Penzer: And the opponent, from Sybil, Texas, she is the reigning, defending TNA Knockouts Champion... Daffney!

The referee picks it back up and holds it in the air for all to see, before passing it out of the ring as the match gets underway.

Match Two
Daffney © vs. Tara
TNA Knockouts Championship


The bell rings and Daffney and Tara approach the middle of the ring, standing face-to-face as they both scowl at each other. Daffney begins to laugh maniacally as Tara remains unimpressed, but when Daffney goes to slap Tara, she ducks it and takes Daffney down to the mat! The crowd pop and Tara tries to get on top of Daffney so she can get some blows, but Daffney frantically crawls out of the predicament and rolls out of the ring, not anticipating Tara’s offence. Tara stands in the ring and shouts at Daffney, “Get your ass back in here!” but Daffney ignores her opponent, taking her time as she slowly re-enters the ring and the referee Mike Posey stands in front of Tara, preventing her from further attacking the TNA Knockouts Champion as she cautiously re-appears. Daffney and Tara then lock up and Tara over-powers Daffney, pushing her away and when Daffney goes to kick Tara in the mid-section, Tara catches her leg and takes Daffney down to the mat with a Dragon Screw.

Tara keeps hold of Daffney’s leg and takes her other leg, trying to turn her over onto her stomach but Daffney pushes Tara into the corner of the ring with her legs, giving her time to get back up, and when she is back up, Daffney charges towards Tara in the corner but Tara hits Daffney with a boot to the face, followed by a Bulldog which drives Daffney’s face into the mat! Tara quickly turns Daffney over onto her back and hooks her legs, making the first cover of the match so far. ONE! TWO! Daffney kicks out, not surprising Tara or the fans in attendance. Tara gets back up and pulls Daffney back up to her feet by her long, black hair, Irish whipping Daffney into the ropes but Daffney stops herself when she makes contact with the ropes. Tara subsequently runs towards Daffney, but “The Zombie Queen” steps aside and throws Tara through the ropes and out of the ring, down to the floor!

Daffney spends a few moments in the ring catching her breath before she leaves the squared circle and sets her eyes on Tara, getting her to her feet and driving Tara spine-first into the ring apron! Tara sinks to the floor and Daffney momentarily enjoys the view of her opponent writhing in pain before getting Tara to her feet and getting her back in the ring, then re-entering herself. Daffney stomps away at Tara relentlessly and then hits her with a knee drop to the head. Daffney then drags Tara into the middle of the ring by her arms, getting her away from the ropes, before making the cover. ONE! TWO! Tara gets the shoulder up. Daffney looks up and glares at the referee Mike Posey, standing up and screaming in the official’s face which startles Posey before she gets Tara up and shoves her into the corner of the ring, lifting up her boot and pressing it against Tara’s throat until the referee’s count of four, when Daffney is forced to stop which the TNA Knockouts Champion does, albeit very reluctantly.

Daffney takes a few steps back before charging towards Tara but Tara moves out of the way and Daffney crashes into the turnbuckles! Tara then lifts Daffney up to the top rope and climbs up there, taking hold of Daffney again before hitting her with a Back Suplex from the top rope!Daffney and Tara both lie on the mat next to each other, with that move having taken a lot out of both competitors, even Tara who executed it. Eventually, Tara manages to slowly hook Daffney’s legs to make the cover, and we could crown a new TNA Knockouts Champion here! ONE! TWO! THREE- No! Daffney kicks out! Tara slowly sits up and holds her head in her hands, shaking her head as she knows that if she was slightly quicker making the cover there then the bell would have rung and we would have crowned a new TNA Knockouts Champion here tonight at Sacrifice.

However, there is definitely still a good chance of that happening, and Tara doesn’t stop, getting to her feet and placing Daffney’s head in between her legs before lifting her up and grabbing her arms, getting “The Scream Queen” in position... is it time for the Widow’s Peak?No, it is not! Daffney manages slip out of Tara’s grasps and she subsequently takes Tara’s arms, dropping to her knees and pulling Tara down, pinning her shoulders to the mat and making the cover! ONE! TWO! Tara kicks out! Daffney and Tara both end up on their backs on the mat with Tara’s frantic kick-out having hit Daffney with a stiff kick to the spine. Eventually, they both get back to their feet and Daffney grabs Tara by her head, hitting her with recurrent forearms before Irish whipping her into the ropes. Daffney ducks down, ready to go for a back body drop, but Tara counters with a kick to the head and she then gets Daffney in a front face-lock, hitting the TNA Knockouts Champion with a Suplex.

Tara then struggles back to her feet and she makes her way to the top rope, taking a few moments to gain her balance, before going for the Moonsault... But Daffney rolls out of the way and Tara goes crashing into the canvas!The match has now swung back in Daffney’s favour with Tara having missed that Moonsault from the top rope, and Daffney gets to her feet, taking Tara’s right leg and locking the challenger in a single leg Boston Crab. This is the first time that a submission has effectively been utilized so far in this contest and it couldn’t come at a worse time for Tara, who desperately tries to make it to the ropes with her arms reached out as a far as they can but she is stuck right in the middle of the ring and Daffney is loving it, as the camera gets a close-up shot of her grinning whilst making Tara suffer.

Tara manages to slightly edge across the ring but the pain is still just as excruciating, however Tara makes her way across the ring even further and she makes it to the ropes! Daffney angrily lets go and stomps away at Tara in frustration before getting her up and going for a Scoop Slam but Tara slips off her shoulder and lands on her feet behind Daffney, pushing her into the corner of the ring before rolling back and pinning Daffney’s shoulders to the mat! However, before the referee begins the count, Daffney escapes and rolls forward, now putting Tara in a pinning predicament as she holds the challenger’s legs with one hand and the referee Mike Posey now makes the cover! ONE! TWO! Daffney’s holding onto the ropes! THREE!

Daffney def. Tara at 7:10 to retain the TNA Knockouts Championship

David Penzer: Here is your winner and STIL TNA Knockouts Champion... Daffney!

The crowd boo as Daffney lets go of Tara’s legs and the ropes and quickly gets to her feet, having her hand raised by the referee before she is handed her TNA Knockouts Championship and she holds it above her head with pride, even though there is no pride in cheating to win. Daffney parades her title around the ring as she cackles away at Tara’s misfortune, but speak of the devil, Tara is now up and she turns Daffney around, kicking her in the mid-section, lifting her up, and nailing Daffney with the Widow’s Peak! The crowd cheer and Tara gets up, taking the title and holding it up herself before dropping it on Daffney and leaving the ring furiously.

Mike Tenay: I’m glad that Tara gave Daffney that Widow’s Peak after the match because Daffney cheated to retain her TNA Knockouts Championship! We should probably have a new Champion at this moment, Mick!

Mick Foley: Daffney is a great competitor so I’m disappointed that she had to cheat to retain her title, Mike, but I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Daffney and Tara against each other in the ring, especially on a stage as big as this.

Mike Tenay: In the interest of fairness, I hope Hogan and Bischoff give Tara another title shot.

Backstage, Eric Young and Kevin Nash are walking down a corridor, both in their ring gear.

Eric Young: Can you feel it Kev? Can you feel it? We’re about to become TNA World Tag Team Champions! Haha!

Kevin Nash: Just relax, Eric, it’s gonna be the first of many Tag Team Titles for Young and Nash.

Nash and Young then stop outside the office of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. Nash and Young look at each other before they enter the office and Bischoff and Hogan are in there.

Kevin Nash: Well, well, well, Hulkster! Doesn’t it feel great to be back in this Arena? Brings back memories of 1996, doesn’t it?

Hulk Hogan: Kev, that was fourteen years ago, knowing you, you’ll try and put the Band back together but come on brother, let it go.

Kevin Nash: Alright, but if you go out there and Leg Drop somebody’s ass, then you’ll have a lot of questions.

Nash laughs before he and Young leave, and they can still be heard outside.

Eric Young: Can he even still do a leg drop?

The camera then cuts away into the Arena, and “Take A Fall” hits to a mixed reaction from the crowd as Beer Money make their way out. Robert Roode raises his hands in the air and James Storm raises his beer bottle up as their pyro goes off before the former TNA World Tag Team Champions walk down the ramp and enter the ring, as Roode slicks back his hair and outstretches his arms.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this TNA World Tag Team Championships Three-Way Elimination Match! Introducing first, at a combined weight of four-hundred-and-seventy-pounds... James Storm and Robert Roode, Beer Money Incoporated!

Then, “Strut” plays and Eric Young and Kevin Nash walk out with Young standing in front of Nash with a grin on his face while the calm and composed Nash raises his hands in the air and makes the Wolfpac sign. The duo enter the ring and Nash raises his hand up high whilst Young stands on the second rope, smirking.

David Penzer: And their opponents, at a combined weight of five-hundred-and-fourty-two-pounds... the team of Eric Young and Kevin Nash!

“Motorcity” blares out to a pop from the crowd and the Motor City Machine Guns walk through the curtains, as Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin stand back-to-back, both wearing identical black leather jackets with the TNA World Tag Team Championships around their waists, and point to the ring before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving the fans and simultaneously sliding into the ring.

David Penzer: And their opponents, at a combined weight of four-hundred-and-twenty-pounds, they are the TNA World Tag Team Champions... Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, the Motor City Machine Guns!

The referee takes Sabin and Shelley’s belts and holds them up in the air before passing them out of the ring, as Eric Young and Robert Roode start off the match with James Storm, Kevin Nash and the Motor City Machine Guns all standing on the ring apron in separate corners.

Match Three
The Motor City Machine Guns © vs. Beer Money vs. Eric Young & Kevin Nash
TNA World Tag Team Championships Three-Way Elimination Match


Eric Young and Robert Roode, two former members of Team Canada, approach the center of the ring and Roode extends his hand to Young as a sign of respect and acknowledgment of their past but Eric instead kicks Roode in the mid-section and takes him by the head, flooring Roode with a headlock takedown. James Storm, standing on the ring apron, shouts “What the hell you doin’?! You’re not meant to shake hands!” but meanwhile Roode forces Eric off of him and gets to his feet. Roode and Young circle each other around the ring for a few moments before locking up and Roode takes Eric’s arm, putting him in a hammerlock but Young twists around and turns the tables on Roode, putting him in a hammerlock of his own. Roode hits Young with an elbow to the face with his free arm and he escapes from the hold, then Irish whipping Eric into the ropes and going for a hip toss but Young counters and jumps to the other side of Roode, trying to lift him up for a hip toss.

Roode keeps his feet on the ground and he kicks Young in the mid-section, hitting him with some right hands before lifting him up and planting Eric with a Scoop Slam. Roode runs off the ropes and rolls forward, going for a Rolling Neck Snap but Young moves out of the way and gets to his feet. No harm is done to Roode, as he simply rolls across the mat but Eric is back up and he takes advantage, running up to Roode who is in a seated position and nailing him with a boot to the side of the head! Young makes the cover. ONE! TWO! Roode kicks out. Young gets back to his feet and stomps away at Roode for a few moments, directing his sternum, before he gets Roode to his feet and puts him in an inverted facelock, then nailing Roode with an Inverted Facelock Neckbreaker! Young gets back up and looks at the crowd, deviously smirking before grabbing Roode by his hair and pulling him to his feet, taking him towards the corner of the ring and tagging his partner Kevin Nash into the match for the first time. Nash is greeted by a mixed reaction from the crowd and Young plants Roode with a Scoop Slam before Nash runs off the ropes and drives his elbow into Roode’s sternum!

Roode writhes in pain after that elbow drop as Nash slowly gets back up and gets Roode to his feet, lifting him onto his shoulder so they are both facing the same direction and moving towards the corner of the ring, going for the Snake Eyes but Roode slips off the back of Nash’s shoulders and then tries to cut “Big Sexy” down to size by targeting his legs, hitting them with several kicks. However, it does little to Nash who grabs Roode by the throat with both hands and lifts him into the air, placing him in the corner of the ring and then stomping away at him until Roode sinks down to a seated position. Nash presses his boot against Roode’s throat in the corner until the referee Andrew Thomas tells Nash to stop and Nash holds his hands up in innocence, backing away. But, moments later Nash’s patience wears thin and he pushes the referee aside, going for Roode but Roode smartly rolls under the ropes and out of the ring to regroup.

Nash waits in the ring for Roode to re-enter but Roode does not, remaining stationary which lures Nash out of the ring. Nash leaves the squared circle and goes for Roode, attempting a Big Boot but Roode moves and Nash’s leg gets caught on the top of the guard rail. With Nash in a precarious position, before he can do anything about it Roode capitalizes on the mistake and drives several elbows into Nash’s knee until stopping and “Big Sexy” is now hobbling with his right knee injured by Roode. It doesn’t end there, as Roode backs away and runs at Nash, managing to drive the big man backwards and spine-first into the steel ringpost! Roode then re-enters the ring, hoping for a count-out victory with the referee on the count of seven, but on the count of nine, Nash gets back in the ring. He isn’t given a warm welcome though, as before Nash can get back to his feet Roode bombards him with stomps to the back and the right knee which he injured outside the ring before Roode walks over to the other side of the squared circle and tags James Storm into the match for the first time with the Motor City Machine Guns both eagerly waiting to get into the match.

Roode climbs out onto the ring apron and Storm approaches Nash, kicking him in his right knee a few more times before climbing to the top rope and waiting for Nash to get to his feet. Nash gets up, facing away from Storm and still bending down which is ideal for Storm, who jumps from the top rope and nails Nash with the Swinging Noose! Storm makes the cover. ONE! TWO! Nash gets the shoulder up, pushing Storm off of him in the process. Storm gets back up and Nash crawls towards his corner of the ring, tagging Eric Young back into the match and Young runs at Storm, taking him down with a clothesline and then hitting him with another, before capping the flurry of offence off with a back body drop! Storm is still relatively fresh in the match though so it doesn’t do too much damage but Young gets back on the offensive, getting Storm in an inverted facelock, placing his right leg in between Storm’s legs and driving his other leg’s knee into Storm’s spine, locking the “Tennessee Cowboy” in a Stretch Plum submission hold.

Storm waves his arms around frantically, trying to escape from the hold, but as several moments pass, he is unable to. However, Storm is handed a lifeline when Robert Roode enters the ring and attacks Young, breaking up the submission hold as the referee shouts at Roode and tells him to leave the ring immediately. Kevin Nash takes matters into his own hands and climbs over the ropes, walking across the ring towards Roode who climbs out of the ring and keeps his distance from Nash, who is told to get back in his corner by the referee but meanwhile, Storm rolls Young up with a Schoolboy but the referee is occupied by the task of getting Nash back in his corner and Young kicks out before the referee even notices!

Storm is livid, and he gets to his feet, walking towards the referee and grabbing him by the shirt, shouting at him “I had him pinned! Why the hell didn’t you count, you son-of-a...” but Storm is cut off when Young attacks Storm from behind with a blow to the back and it sends Storm staggering into the corner of the ring. Robert Roode tags himself back in and he runs at Young, nailing him with a Clothesline. Roode stands over Eric and tells Storm to come into the ring whilst Young is down, and Roode and Storm both crouch down, before Storm raises his hands in the air and shouts “BEER!” and Roode does the same, shouting “MONEY!” along with the crowd although a minority of the fans shout “SUCK!” Storm then leaves the ring and Roode gets Young to his feet, getting him in a front face-lock and hooking his leg... can Roode hit the Pay-Off?Roode goes to... wait, Young counters and pins Roode with a Small Package!ONE! TWO! THREE!

Beer Money have been eliminated! The four-time TNA World Tag Team Champions are gone, and James Storm and Robert Roode are furious! Roode immediately gets back to his feet and goes for Eric Young who is grinning along with Kevin Nash but the referee gets in Roode’s way and tells him to leave the ring immediately. Roode glares at Young for a few moments before reluctantly leaving the ring but Storm isn’t exactly sympathetic towards his tag team partner, shouting in his face “What the hell was that?!”and Roode simply looks emotionlessly at Storm with his hands on his hips before “The Tennessee Cowboy” shakes his head at Roode in disgust and walks up the ramp, leaving his partner behind. Roode makes the walk of shame to the back moments later, but now the focus is back in the ring as it is down to Eric Young and Kevin Nash and the TNA World Tag Team Champions the Motor City Machine Guns, who so far have been frozen out of the match but now they are finally making their entrance in the contest.

Alex Shelley jumps over the ropes into the ring and Young immediately runs at him but Shelley hits Eric with a single leg Dropkick which knocks Young down. Eric gets back up and charges towards Shelley again but this time Alex floors him with an arm drag, followed by another one after Young gets back up. Shelley gets back up and quickly turns Eric over with his legs before locking Young in a single leg Boston Crab. Young holds his hands on his bald head and then puts them down on the mat, refusing to tap out as Shelley keeps the pressure applied on Young’s left leg but Eric manages to gradually crawl across the ring, taking Alex with him, and make it to the ropes, as Shelley is forced to let go. Young gets back up and Shelley looks very confident, jumping up and down raring to continue with a smirk on his face, but that exuberance is drained when Eric tags the seven-foot Kevin Nash back into the match. The defiant Shelley runs off the ropes behind him and charges towards Nash, leaping onto him going for a Cross Body but “Big Sexy” catches Shelley in mid-air and holds him across his chest.

Nash manages to adjust Shelley’s position so that he is holding Shelley on his right hand side, and Nash walks in a circle around the ring, before nailing Shelley with a Sidewalk Slam!Young applauds and enthusiastically cheers Nash on from the ring apron as Nash, sitting up, smirks at the camera before he hooks both of Shelley’s legs and makes the cover, ONE! TWO! Shelley kicks out. Nash gets back up and gets Shelley to his feet, grabbing him by the throat and lifting him into the air for a Chokeslam but Shelley wriggles out of Nash’s grasp and lands on his feet behind the veteran, jumping into the air and hitting Nash with a Dropkick to the back which sends “The Silver Fox” staggering forward into the corner of the ring.

“Total Nonstop Alex” quickly tags Chris Sabin into the match and Shelley gets down on all fours as Sabin runs up and uses Shelley as a springboard to hit Nash with another Dropkick to the back and after that the roles reverse, with Sabin on all fours and Shelley springboarding off of his partner to hit Nash with a forearm to the back of the head! Shelley then leaves the ring and Nash falls back to the canvas as Sabin watches “Big Sexy” crawl towards the corner of the ring to tag Eric Young back in. Young re-enters the ring and Sabin runs at Young but is kicked in the mid-section and Eric then lifts Sabin onto his shoulders but Sabin fights out of it and then sends Young over the ropes and out of the ring with a Dropkick to the back. As Young gets back to his feet on the outside, Alex Shelley enters the ring and stands on the second rope, maximizing the space under his legs as Sabin runs off the opposite ropes and charges across the ring, flying through Shelley’s legs and taking out Young with a Suicide Dive!

The crowd go wild and chant “TNA! TNA! TNA!” as Sabin and Young both lie on the outside but Kevin Nash then gets involved and gets Sabin to his feet. But, before Nash can do anything, Shelley runs across the ring, jumping over the ropes onto the ring apron, jumping onto the ropes, springboarding off of them, and hitting Nash with a Springboard Moonsault!

The crowd are loving this and they chant “This is awesome!” as all four remaining competitors in the match lie on the outside of the ring and Sabin and Young, the legal men, are the first to get back in the ring. Sabin and Young trade blows and Sabin runs off the ropes, as Shelley makes the blind tag and immediately enters the ring. Sabin leap-frogs Young and after that Shelley hits Eric with an Enzuiguriwhich sends Young face-first into the corner of the ring. Shelley climbs to the top rope and Sabin lifts up Eric in a Powerbomb position as Shelley, facing away from Young, grabs Eric’s head, and the Champions nail Young with the Made In Detroit!Kevin Nash tries to get in the ring but Sabin keeps Nash at bay as Shelley covers Young and the end of the match must surely be here! ONE! TWO! THREE!

The Motor City Machine Guns def. Beer Money & Eric Young & Kevin Nash at 15:21 to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championships

David Penzer: Here are your winners and still TNA World Tag Team Champions... the Motor City Machine Guns!

“Motorcity” blares out and Chris Sabin gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee to a big pop from the crowd. Alex Shelley walks over and embraces with Sabin as they are handed their TNA World Tag Team Championships and they hold them up high with pride before they leave the ring and celebrate their victory with the TNA fans as they walk up the ramp.

Mike Tenay: Well, they didn’t enter the match until Beer Money were already eliminated, but nonetheless the Motor City Machine Guns deserved their victory and they have retained their TNA World Tag Team Championships!

Mick Foley: Speaking of Beer Money, what was with James Storm after Robert Roode was eliminated? He wasn’t exactly sympathetic towards Roode after Eric Young pinned him, was he?

Mike Tenay: That did surprise me, Mick, Beer Money have been a solid unit for three years and they’ve won four TNA World Tag Team Championships but what happened there makes you wonder... are James Storm and Robert Roode still on the same page?

Mick Foley: We’ll have to wait and see, Professor.

Back in the Arena, “Kaz” hits to a pop from the crowd and Kazarian walks out, raising one hand in the air and making a hand gesture as he strides down the ramp and high-fives some fans before climbing to the top rope and posing for the crowd again, then jumping down to the mat.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this TNA X Division Championship match! Introducing first, from Anaheim, California, weighing tw0-hundred-and-fifteen-pounds... Kazarian!

Then, “Wings Of A Fallen Angel” blares out and Christopher Daniels walks out, flicking back his hood and revealing his face, which has an ear-to-ear grin on it as he makes a hand gesture with both of his hands before sauntering down the ramp and removing his jacket, entering the ring and climbing to the second rope to pose for the crowd.

David Penzer: And his opponent, from the City of Angels, weighing two-hundred-and-twenty-four pounds... “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!

The referee takes the X Division Championship belt from ringside and holds it up in the air for all to see before passing it out of the ring so the match can get underway.

Match 4
Christopher Danielsvs. Kazarian
TNA X Division Championship


The bell rings and Christopher Daniels and Kazarian lock eyes, cautiously circling each other around the ring as Daniels talks trash whilst Kazarian stays silent and keeps his focus on the task at hand – becoming the undisputed TNA X Division Champion. Daniels and Kazarian lock up and Daniels wrenches Kazarian’s arm, rolling across the mat and taking Kazarian down with an arm drag before stepping over his arm, about to drop down to the mat to lock in an armbar but Kazarian pushes Daniels away into the corner of the ring. Kazarian gets back to his feet and Daniels cautiously comes out of the corner as they lock up again and Kazarian pushes Daniels into the ropes, Irish whipping him into the ropes and lying on the mat as Daniels jumps over him. Daniels runs into the ropes again and Kazarian springs back up, going for a hip toss but Daniels counters it and jumps to the other side of Kazarian, taking him down with a hip toss of his own. Daniels runs off the ropes but is taken down to the mat by a drop toe hold from Kazarian and Kazarian rolls over to Daniels’ right hand side, lifting up his legs and pinning “The Fallen Angel” for the first time in this X Division Championship match.

ONE! TWO! Daniels kicks out. Daniels and Kazarian both get back up and Kazarian goes for a kick to Daniels’ mid-section but Daniels takes him down by sweeping his other leg away and he then tries to turn Kazarian over but Kazarian uses his free leg to boot Daniels in the face which causes him to stagger backwards into the corner of the ring. Kazarian gets back up to his feet and runs towards Daniels but Daniels lifts Kazarian up and drops him on the ring apron. Before Daniels can do anymore, Kazarian leans through the middle rope and spears Daniels in the mid-section which sends Daniels back-pedalling into the middle of the squared circle and Kazarian jumps onto the ropes, springboarding off of them and nailing Daniels with a Missile Dropkick! The crowd cheer and Kazarian springs back to his feet, jumping up and down and shouting “Come on!” in an attempt to get the crowd livened up and they do as they chant “Let’s go, Kaz!” which is countered by the minority who chant “Fallen Angel!” in support of Christopher Daniels.

Kazarian gets Daniels back to his feet and gets him in a front facelock, lifting him up in the air for a Suplex but Daniels forces Kazarian backwards with his weight and he slips out of Kazarian’s grasps, landing on the ring apron and he then slides under the ropes and through Kazarian’s legs, subsequently rolling up Kazarian with a Schoolboy! ONE! TWO! Kazarian kicks out. Daniels gets back up, as does Kazarian, and Daniels kicks Kazarian in the mid-section, hitting him with some right hands before running off the ropes and going for a bulldog but Kazarian pushes Daniels away and “The Fallen Angel” lands on his backside on the mat. Kazarian takes advantage and drills a stiff boot into the spine of Daniels which sends Daniels’ shoulders to rest against the mat and Kazarian follows up by running off the ropes and hitting Daniels with a knee drop to the cranium.

Kazarian gets back up and gets Daniels to his feet, getting him in position for the Wave Of The Future but Daniels fights out of it with a few elbows to the side of Kazarian’s head and then lifts Kazarian up before planting him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Daniels looks down at Kazarian and then looks at the top rope in the corner of the ring, before nodding his head and smirking, walking over to the corner of the ring and jumping to the second rope, then to the top rope, before going for the Best Moonsault Ever... but Kazarian gets his knees up, and Daniels goes stomach-first into Kazarian’s knees!Daniels immediately clutches his mid-section with both hands and writhes in pain on the mat as Kazarian slowly gets back to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron, launching himself over the ropes back into the ring and hitting Daniels with a Slingshot Leg Drop onto the throat of Daniels! Kazarian hooks Daniels’ legs and makes the cover. ONE! TWO!

Daniels gets the shoulder up! Kazarian sits up and glances at the referee, running his hands through his sweaty hair before getting to his feet and eagerly waiting for Daniels to get to his feet. Daniels eventually gets to his feet and Kazarian takes Daniels, hitting him with an uppercut which sends his fellow co-X Division Champion into the corner of the ring. Kazarian then lifts Daniels to the top rope and climbs up there himself, before getting Daniels in a front facelock and nailing “The Fallen Angel” with a thunderous Superplex which shakes the canvas! Daniels and Kazarian both lie side-by-side on the canvas with that Superplex having taken energy out of both competitors, and after several moments Kazarian gets up, followed by Daniels.

The two co-X Division Champions trade right hands until Kazarian gains the upper hand in the exchange, hitting consecutive blows and he Irish whips Daniels into the ropes, then going for a Clothesline but Daniels ducks it and gets behind Kazarian, turning him around and lifting him up onto his shoulders before nailing Kazarian with a crushing Death Valley Driver!

Instead of making a pin attempt, Daniels gets back up and gloats to the crowd, shouting “I am the X Division Champion! Me and me only!” before going to ground, and locking Kazarian in a Crossface! Daniels leans back as far as possible, applying more pressure to Kazarian’s face as he reaches out in desperation, trying to get to the ropes and escape this submission hold. Kazarian manages to slightly edge across the ring towards the ropes and he is within touching distance but before Kazarian can make it to the ropes, Daniels quickly gets up and pulls Kazarian back into the middle of the ring by his legs, then locking in the Crossface again! It’s back to square one for Kazarian who restarts his mission to escape from this submission hold and this time Kazarian makes his way towards the ropes quicker than Daniels anticipated, and “The Fallen Angel” is powerless as Kazarian makes it to the ropes!

The crowd cheer in relief as the referee Dave Hebner forces Daniels to let go of Kazarian and he reluctantly does so, getting to his feet as Kazarian holds onto the ropes but Daniels refuses to stick around and wait as he gets right back into the action. Daniels tries to pull Kazarian back into the middle of the ring by his legs but Kazarian kicks Daniels away and when Daniels regains his composure he runs towards Kazarian, but Kazarian is now back on his feet and he holds down the top rope causing Daniels to go over the ropes and out of the ring! Daniels crawls towards the security guardrail and pulls himself up with the nearby fans both cheering him on and heckling him, but meanwhile Kazarian is on his feet in the ring and he looks around the Ocean Center with the fans cheering. Kazarian gives the crowd a simple but effective nod before running off the ropes and charging across the ring, flying over the ropes and taking out Daniels with a Somersault Plancha!

Daniels and Kazarian lie on the outside of the ring and the crowd go nuts, chanting “TNA! TNA! TNA!” and “This is awesome!” like they always do after a spot like that. We see several replays of that Somersault Plancha from different angles and when we re-join the action, Daniels and Kazarian are still out on the floor trying to get up. The referee is on the count of four and neither competitor is up, but on the count of six Daniels and Kazarian are both trying to get back up. On the count of eight, Daniels pulls himself up with the ring apron and gets back into the ring and on the count of nine, much to the chagrin of Daniels, Kazarian gets back into the ring as well! Daniels gets right back on the attack although he and Kazarian are both getting tired but Kazarian, on his knees, fights him off with some blows to the mid-section. Kazarian continues to do so until he is back on his feet and he Irish whips Daniels into the ropes, hitting him with a Belly-to-Belly Suplexwhen Daniels comes running back towards him!

Kazarian then makes the cover. ONE! TWO! THREE- Daniels kicks out! Kazarian once again has come so close to winning the match and becoming the undisputed TNA X Division Champion but you have to admire Daniels for his defiance and willingness to keep fighting on in spite of his less-than-admirable attitude. Kazarian struggles back to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron, eagerly waiting for Daniels to get back to his feet and when Daniels eventually gets up, Kazarian slingshots himself over the ropes but Daniels catches his legs and pulls him back up for a Powerbomb but Kazarian counters it into a Hurricanrana which sends Daniels face-first into the top turnbuckle in the corner of the ring. Kazarian takes a few steps back into the opposite corner of the ring before running across the ring and hitting Daniels with a Hesitation Dropkick to the back! Daniels falls back to the canvas as a result and Kazarian jumps onto the ropes, twisting around in mid-air and hitting Daniels with a Springboard Leg Drop!

Kazarian pulls himself back up with assistance from the ropes and raises his hand in the air, making a hand gesture and then clapping his hands together, getting the fans to clap along as Kazarian gets Daniels to his feet and lifts him up onto his shoulders in a seated position in position for an Electric Chair Drop but Daniels manages to roll forward and roll Kazarian up, holding onto his legs! ONE! TWO! Daniels has positioned both of his legs on the middle rope for leverage! THREE- The referee sees Daniels holding onto the ropes for leverage and immediately stops the count!The Daytona Beach crowd cheer, supporting the decision and Brian Hebner shouts at Daniels, reprimanding him for trying to cheat to win and Daniels holds his hands up in innocence, even though there is no innocence in cheating especially in a match with a title on the line, getting back to his feet but Kazarian is now back up as well and he is furious with Daniels.

Kazarian yells in his face, “What the hell are you doing?!” and Daniels simply smirks before going to throw a right hand at Kazarian but Kazarian catches his hand and kicks Daniels in the mid-section, lifting him up in a Reverse Scoop Slam position and adjusting Daniels’ position until he is in a back-to-belly position and Kazarian nails Daniels with a Back-to-Belly Piledriver!The crowd pop big-time, sensing that this could be the end of the match, and Kazarian jumps onto “The Fallen Angel”, hooking his legs and making the cover as the referee makes the pin and the crowd count along! ONE! TWO! THREE-

We have a new Champ- No! Daniels kicks out! Kazarian can’t believe it, neither can the crowd, and he holds his head in his hands, being just a split-second away from winning the match. Kazarian looks at Daniels and shakes his head in disappointment, before getting up and slowly getting Daniels up. Kazarian kicks Daniels in the mid-section and gets him in a front facelock but Daniels fights out of it with some blows to the mid-section of Kazarian, then Irish whipping Kazarian face-first towards the ropes but Kazarian handstands into the ropes before springing back and hitting Daniels with a Spin Kickin mid-air! The crowd pop and chant “This is awesome!” repeatedly as a grinning Kazarian nods his head in agreement and then makes it to his feet, saying “Let’s end it now!” before getting a disorientated Daniels to his feet and bringing him over to the corner of the ring. Kazarian tries to lift Daniels up to the top rope but somehow, some way, “The Fallen Angel” still has some fuel left in the tank and he fights Kazarian off with some kicks to the gut and some right hands. Kazarian then runs towards Daniels but Daniels kicks Kazarian in the mid-section, hooks his arms, lifts him up and nails Kazarian with the Angel’s Wings!There is a strong mixed reaction throughout the Ocean Center with the conclusion of this match looming larger than ever as an exhausted Daniels turns Kazarian over and grabs his legs, making the cover. ONE! TWO! THREE!

Christopher Daniels def. Kazarian at 14:38 to become sole TNA X Division Champion

David Penzer: Here is your winner and the NEW TNA X Division Champion... “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!

“Wings Of A Fallen Angel” blares out to a mixed reaction from the crowd, some booing because he is a heel and some cheering because of the immense effort he put into that match, and a beleaguered Christopher Daniels struggles to his feet, ignoring the referee Dave Hebner when he tries to raise his hand and immediately leaving the ring, calling for his TNA X Division Championship belt. Daniels takes his title and clutches it to his chest, trudging up the ramp with one hand holding his belt and the other hand raised high above his head in victory after that hard-fought victory against Kazarian.

Mike Tenay: Whether you love him or you hate him, you have to admit that Christopher Daniels deserved that victory against Kazarian and he is now the undisputed TNA X Division Champion.

Mick Foley: Kazarian deserved a win too tonight, as clichť as it is that match could have gone either way, but Kazarian’s heaven has been sent hell-bound by “The Fallen Angel”, just like Daniels predicted, Professor.

Mike Tenay: So much potential on the remaining card for tonight’s pay per view, but that match is going to take some real beating, Mick.

Mick Foley: Couldn’t agree with you more, Mike.

Jeremy Borash is backstage, standing with Kurt Angle.

Jeremy Borash: Hello everybody, it’s Jeremy Borash here with “The Olympic Gold Medallist” Kurt Angle who tonight is competing in a Three Way Dance for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy. Kurt, you’ve faced both of these men before here in TNA in the recent past, the last time you faced Jeff, which was your first meeting in TNA, you beat him but the last time you faced AJ, at Genesis, you lost.

Kurt Angle: JB, you’re a good guy and my friend and all, but quite frankly I’m sick and tired of being telling me that I lost to AJ Styles at Genesis.

Jeremy Borash: Well- well I’m sorry, Kurt-

Angle holds his hand up at Borash.

Kurt Angle: It’s alright, JB, it’s not just you, it’s a whole lot of other guys, so I’ll say it one more time... forget about Genesis, because the fact of the matter is, I was screwed by Ric Flair.

Mixed reaction for Flair.

Kurt Angle: But hey, that’s in the past now because I kicked Flair’s team’s ass at Lockdown last month and tonight, Genesis won’t matter, because tonight I reclaim the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. I don’t care who I have to go through, AJ, Jeff, or both of them, but either way, by the end of the night you’ll see Kurt Angle back where he belongs... at the top of TNA, with the World... Heavyweight... Championship.

Pop for Angle.

Kurt Angle: Oh, it’s real... it’s DAMN real!

Angle walks out of the shot to a big pop from the crowd, as the camera cuts back to the announce table with Foley and Tenay.

Mike Tenay: Kurt Angle looks more ready than ever to take back the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he lost last September at No Surrender, but right now we’re ready to see the Falls Count Anywhere Match for the TNA Global Championship; “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero defends the title against “The War Machine” Rhino!

------

Dinero is given his Global Championship which he raises in the air above his head with both hands. However, once Dinero turns around, there’s Rhino standing in the corner, and he charges across the ring, breaking Dinero in half with a Gore! Elsewhere, Rhino who attacked D’Angelo Dinero out of the blue after Dinero’s victory over Sean Morley tonight, is walking down a corridor, breathing heavily and muttering words to himself, when Jeremy Borash runs up to him with a microphone.

Borash: Rhino, could you give us a...

Borash is cut off when the man Rhino attacked, the Global Champion Dinero, jumps ‘The War Machine’ from behind! ‘The Pope’ stomps away at Rhino and then goes to ground, pounding him with blows as Borash shouts ‘Security! We need security here!’ and moments later before Dinero can well and truly leave his mark on Rhino, security guards arrive on the scene and restrain Dinero, stopping ‘The Pope’ from continuing his assault. Rhino slowly gets to his feet and security restrain him as well as Dinero shouts at Rhino, ‘You think you can get away with that, Rhino?!’ and ‘The Pope ain’t a steppin’ stone for nobody... nobody!’

‘War Machine’ plays and Rhino gets to his feet as he doesn’t let the referee raise his hand, instead raising his own hands above his head and motioning around his waist that he will become the TNA Global Champion at Destination X. However, whilst Rhino is celebrating his victory, the man he Gored last week, D’Angelo Dinero, jumps over the security barricade and enters the ring, and when Rhino notices him they begin to trade blows! The crowd cheer as Rhino and Dinero go at it and the crowd are behind ‘The Pope’ who begins to gain the upper hand as he hits Rhino with consecutive right hands and ‘The War Machine’ staggers into the corner of the ring, turning back to Dinero, and ‘The Pope’ looks around the Impact Zone, nodding his head with a smirk on his face, before running across the ring, and nailing Rhino with the Dinero Express! ‘Catholi-Funk’ blares out and the crowd cheer as D’Angelo Dinero stands over Rhino and spreads his arms out, looking up with a grin on his face, before reaching into his pocket and revealing a wad of cash, which he holds up for all to see before laying it on Rhino’s chest and leaving the ring, high-fiving the fans as he makes his way backstage.

Tenay: Rhino thought he got away with what he did to D’Angelo Dinero last Monday night, well he was wrong! ‘The Pope’ has well and truly got his revenge!

Dinero: Close your eyes and say all the prayers your Momma taught you, ‘cause you’re gonna need a miracle to even come close to out-performing Pope at Destination X, and-

However, Dinero cannot continue as, speak of the devil, Rhino, who has run down the ramp and entered the ring, slams a steel chair over the back of ‘The Pope’! Dinero goes straight down and Rhino begins to stomp away at Dinero and he then gets him to his feet. Dinero tries to fight back and gets cheered by the crowd, but ‘The Man-Beast’ wrenches Dinero’s arm and pulls him in, almost taking the TNA Global Champion’s head off with a thunderous clothesline!

Rhino then momentarily leaves the ring and lifts up the ring apron, searching under the ring ... and revealing a table! Rhino lifts it up and looks at the table with a sadistic grin on his face before sliding the table into the ring and re-entering, setting the table up in the corner of the ring and waiting for Dinero to get up. Eventually, ‘The Pope’ gets up, standing in between Rhino and the table in the corner, and that’s the last place he wants to be, because Rhino runs straight at Dinero, and sends Dinero crashing through the table with a Gore!

Taz: GORE! GORE! GORE, BABY, GORE!

Buried in the shards of the broken table is the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero and Rhino gets to his feet, taking Dinero’s Global Championship from the floor and holding it aloft as if it was his, which it could be at Destination X, to a lot of heat from the crowd, before dropping it and walking over to the motionless Dinero, shouting into his face ‘Who’s hippo now?!’ before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp as ‘War Machine’ blares out.

Taz: Man, oh man, that was one hell of a gore! I love Pope, I really do, but Rhino just took his ass out big time! If that ain’t a potential sign of things to come at Destination X on March 21st when these two guys meet, then I don’t know what is, Professor!

Tenay: Rhino is a sick, vile man and for anybody who didn’t already know that, he just showed the entire world his true colours.

Paramedics rush to the ring, some of them carrying a stretcher, and they check on D’Angelo Dinero, who hasn’t moved a muscle since that Gore from Rhino. They strap Dinero to the stretcher and take him out of the ring, but then Rhino, who is standing on the stage, turns around and sees ‘The Pope’ ... going back for more! The crowd boo Rhino as he storms downt he ramp and yells at the paramedics who quickly get out of the way as he grabs the stretcher from the floor which Dinero is strapped to ... and slams the stretcher with Dinero strapped to it against the steel ring-post! The stretcher falls to the concrete floor and ‘The Pope’ is well and truly out cold now if he wasn’t already as Rhino stands over him and raises both hands above his head before walking away, ignoring the boos of the crowd.

Tenay: I don’t sense much enthusiasm in your voice now, Taz.

Taz: I know, Mike, but that ... that’s just crossing the line. I know that’s TNA’s tagline and all but I’m sure it’s meant in jest, not so that guys do stuff like that. I’ve known Rhino for a long time, and I’ve seen the good and bad sides of him plenty of times, he’s not always straight in the head, but he’s gone way too far tonight. I just hope Pope’s alright down there ... I’m gonna go check on him.

Taz stands up, removes his headset, and leaves the announce table, walking down the ramp towards D’Angelo Dinero, but Rhino steps in his way! Taz says to Rhino, ‘What the hell are you doin’, Terry? Get the hell outta’ here!’ but that doesn’t do anything, as Rhino grabs Taz by the shirt collar and shoves him away! There are a lot of ‘Ohhh’s in the crowd after that and Taz doesn’t back down, walking back towards Rhino and shouting at him ‘Hey, don’t pull that crap with me, Terry, I’m warnin’ you, al..’ but Taz isn’t able to finish ... as Rhino nails Taz with a Gore!!!

Taz is laid out on the ramp as Rhino stands over him with a smirk on his face as he pulls Taz back up by his shirt collar and pushes him down the steps that lead off the ramp and down to the concrete floor in front of the announce table where Taz should be right now. Rhino drags Taz over to the announce table and Mike Tenay quickly removes his headset and takes several steps back as Rhino removes the TV monitor from the announce table, and hits Taz in the skull with the TV monitor! This is getting plain distasteful now, and Taz is laid out on the concrete floor as D’Angelo Dinero is taken backstage on the stretcher and then more paramedics emerge, rushing over to where Taz is, and Taz is now bleeding from the head, as he is strapped to a stretcher and taken away as security guards get in the maniacal Rhino’s way.

We then see Dinero retain his title against Rhino at Destination X before skipping forward to the night after Lockdown where Rhino interrupts Dinero and challenges him to a Falls Count Anywhere Match at Sacrifice for the TNA Global Championship.

Dinero: You want a title shot... Make Pope a believer.

Rhino is interviewed backstage by Christy Hemme.

Rhino: But rest assured, Dinero, I will get my match at Sacrifice, whether you want to give me it or not, because I’ve done much worse things in my life than forcing people like you to give me what I deserve. But I will tell you one thing... I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do... by next Monday night. But until then, it could be anytime... any place.

We see Dinero being interviewed before SoCal Val alerts him of something and Dinero finds his Father laid out backstage with him naming Rhino as his assailant.

D’Angelo Dinero: He wants that Falls Count Anywhere Match at Sacrifice? ... I want it more.

------

The camera is back in the Ocean Center and “Stampede” blares out to major heat from the crowd as Rhino walks out, wearing a black vest and jeans with knee pads and elbow pads with his fists heavily taped as he looks ready for an all-out brawl. Rhino pounds his fists against his chest and throws his arms in the air as his pyro goes off before storming down the ramp and entering the ring.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this TNA Global Championship Falls Count Anywhere Match! Introducing first, from Detroit, Michigan, weighing two-hundred-and-seventy-five pounds... “The War Machine” Rhino!

Then, “Catholifunk” hits to a big pop and the TNA Global Champion “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero walks out, not looking like his exuberant self as he has a black bandana, a black vest and black pants on, holding his title in his hand with his eyes fixated on a grinning Rhino. Dinero walks down the ramp and drops his title outside before entering the ring and going straight for Rhino!

David Penzer: And his opponent, from the streets of Harlem, New York, weighing two-hundred-and-twenty-five pounds, he is the reigning, defending TNA Global Champion... “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero!

Match Five
D’Angelo Dinero © vs. Rhino
TNA Global Championship Falls Count Anywhere Match


By the time the bell has rung, the action is already underway and D’Angelo Dinero has Rhino down on the mat, having gone straight after “The War Machine” as soon as Dinero entered the ring! Rhino tries to fight Dinero off but Dinero is all over his arch-nemesis, pummelling him with blows to the head with his other hand holding Rhino’s head, making sure he doesn’t go anywhere. Rhino eventually manages to shove Dinero away and they both get to their feet, as Dinero runs at Rhino but instead gets a kick to the gut. Rhino forces Dinero into the corner of the ring and unleashes several right hands at Dinero before backing away and then going for a Clothesline but Dinero boots Rhino in the face which sends him back-pedalling and Dinero then takes him down with a Flying Forearm Smash! Dinero then jumps back onto Rhino and hits him with fists to the face until Dinero decides to get back up and he gets Rhino to his feet, wrenching his arm and going for a right hand but Rhino ducks it and wraps his arms around Dinero’s mid-section, planting “The Pope” on his neck with a German Suplex!

Rhino gets back up and drags Dinero by his arms into the corner of the ring, then pressing his boot against Dinero’s throat for several moments before letting go and leaving the ring. Rhino lifts up the ring apron and searches under the ring, presumably for weapons, and after a few moments a Steel Chair slides backwards across the floor! The crowd cheer, as weapons are now being introduced to this Falls Count Anywhere Match, and Rhino re-emerges, picking up the Steel Chair and throwing it over the ropes into the ring before rolling back into the squared circle. “The Man Monster” places the Chair next to Dinero and gets him to his feet, getting Dinero in a front facelock and lifting him into the air, keeping Dinero in the air for several moments. It looks Rhino is looking to go for a Brainbuster on the Steel Chair but Dinero fights out of it with a few blows to Rhino’s head and “The Pope” comes back down to the mat. Dinero goes for a kick to the mid-section of Rhino but his leg is caught which derails Dinero momentarily but the TNA Global Champion instead hits Rhino with an Enzuiguri!

Rhino back-pedals into the corner of the ring and Dinero picks up the Steel Chair, backing into the opposite corner and then running across the ring, throwing the Steel Chair into Rhino’s hands and then looking to go for the Dinero Express but before he can take flight, Rhino throws the Chair into Dinero’s face! Dinero barely manages to stay on his feet but he is very dazed and Rhino runs out of the corner, flooring Dinero with a Clothesline! Rhino then makes the cover, One! Two! Dinero kicks out. Rhino unusually grins when he sees his opponent kick out and he kneels over Dinero, saying “You want me to do more, Dinero? You’ve got it!” before getting to his feet and getting Dinero up, hitting him with a few blows to the head before throwing him through the ropes and out of the ring. With Dinero down, Rhino grabs him by his legs, and catapults Dinero into the steel ring-post but Dinero manages to stop himself from hitting the ringpost and Rhino then runs towards him, only for Dinero to step aside and drive Rhino’s head into the steel ring-post, slowly but surely knocking Rhino down!

Dinero has now regained control of the match and he is still feeling the effects of having a Steel Chair thrown into him but it doesn’t stop “The Pope” who gets Rhino to his feet and drags him by his hair towards the security guard rail, slamming Rhino’s face into the guard rail repeatedly until taking a few steps back and running up to Rhino, clotheslining Rhino over the security guard rail and into the crowd! The crowd cheer, now that the action is right before their eyes, and Dinero stomps away at Rhino until he gets him up and pushing him further up a flight of steps as the fans back away and give the competitors in this match some space. Dinero walks towards Rhino but Rhino kicks Dinero in the mid-section and Suplexes Dinero on the stairs! Rhino stands over Dinero and pounds his fists against his chest, raising his hands in the air with a sadistic grin on his face which gets heat from the crowd before he gets Dinero to his feet, and throws Dinero head-first into the security guard rail, knocking the guard rail down!

Rhino walks towards Dinero, not having to worry about climbing over the rail and he pulls Dinero by his hair to his feet. Security guards cautiously walk towards them, asking them to move so they can put the guard rail back up, but Rhino shouts at them “NO! I’M NOT DONE!” and this proves to be an inadvertent distraction for Dinero to capitalize on, as Dinero turns Rhino around and lifts him up, planting Rhino on the guard rail with a Scoop Slam! That must have hurt Rhino with his spine tasting the steel, and Dinero drops to his knees, making the cover on top of the guard rail. One! Two! Rhino gets the shoulder up. Dinero gets to his feet and lifts up the ring apron, searching under the ring and revealing a Table which Dinero slides under the ropes and into the ring. “The Pope” then gets Rhino up and loads Rhino back into the ring, then re-entering the ring himself, and to keep Rhino out of the way for a few more seconds Dinero gets Rhino up to his feet, only to plant him back down on the canvas with a Russian Leg Sweep. Dinero then picks up the table and sets it up near the corner of the ring, subsequently getting Rhino up and lifting him onto it. Dinero takes a few steps back before running across the ring and lifting himself into the air on the ropes before going for the Outer Limitz Elbow, but Rhino moves out of the way and Dinero goes crashing through the table!

The Daytona Beach crowd cheer after the first table of the match is broken and Rhino slowly gets to his feet, lifting Dinero up from under the shards of the broken table and lifting him up to the top rope. Rhino climbs to the top rope and wraps his arms around Dinero’s waist before nailing Dinero with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex from the top rope down to the mat! Upon impact of the manoeuvre, “The Pope” rolls away from Rhino but “The War Machine” frantically crawls across the mat and hooks Dinero’s legs, making the cover! One! Two! Dinero kicks out! Rhino doesn’t seem to care that Dinero has kicked out, as it only means that he gets to inflict more punishment on Dinero, and Rhino gets to his feet, dragging “The Paragon of Virtue” by his feet towards the ropes before leaving the ring and pulling Dinero under the ropes and to the outside with him. Rhino goes under the ring once again and brings out a Kendo Stick which gets cheers from the bloodthirsty crowd and Rhino is about to drive the Kendo Stick into Dinero’s skull but Dinero begins to fight back with blows to Rhino’s mid-section. Dinero makes it to his feet and hits Rhino with elbows to the head, causing Rhino to drop the Kendo Stick, and to cap off his flurry of offence, Dinero picks it up and nails Rhino in the skull with the Kendo Stick!

Rhino falls to the floor and Dinero holds up the Kendo Stick in the air with a grin on his face, before hitting Rhino with the Kendo Stick in the mid-section over and over again! Dinero then drops the Kendo Stick after hitting Rhino with it half a dozen times and “The Pope” gets a disorientated Rhino to his feet, pulling him up the ramp onto the stage. Dinero looks around the stage but doesn’t see anything which impresses him, so Dinero takes Rhino backstage! However, this journey has given Rhino time to regain his composure and “The War Machine” kicks Dinero in the gut and throws him down a small flight of stairs down to the concrete floor! Rhino slowly walks down the stairs and repeatedly kicks and stomps Dinero before he sees a Ladder precariously resting nearby. Rhino takes the Ladder just as Dinero is getting to his feet and Rhino runs at Dinero with the Ladder in hand but Dinero moves out of the way and Rhino drives the Ladder into the wall instead. Meanwhile, Dinero picks up a Steel Chair from under the stairway and slams the Chair into Rhino’s back as Rhino falls into the Ladder which is propped up against the wall and Dinero takes a few steps back before running up and sandwiching Rhino in between him and the Ladder!

Rhino drops to the floor and Dinero covers him as the referee, out of breath after following the competitors around the Arena, counts! One! Two! Rhino gets the shoulder up! Dinero gets back up and opens the Ladder up which has fallen to the floor, dragging Rhino by his arms towards the Ladder and placing him in between it. Dinero lifts the top half of the Ladder up, but before he can do anything, Rhino low blows Dinero with a kick to the groin! Rhino then gets back to his feet and moves Dinero away from the Ladder, lifting Dinero onto his shoulder and walking around the backstage area with “The Pope” resting on his shoulder. Rhino walks down a corridor and sees some wooden storage boxes which Rhino walks towards, and he climbs onto them with Dinero still on his right shoulder, before hitting Dinero with a Scoop Powerslam on the storage boxes! The boxes break as Dinero and Rhino sink to the floor and both competitors lie on the concrete floor until Rhino eventually hooks Dinero’s legs and covers him, we could have a new Champion! One! Two! Thr-Kick out from Dinero! Rhino is becoming frustrated that he can’t put Dinero away and he gets to his feet, walking around to look for weapons to use before finding a Garbage Can. Rhino picks the Can up and empties it as garbage falls to the floor before taking it over Dinero and dropping it on the floor as he gets Dinero to his feet.

As a groggy Dinero sinks to his knees once Rhino lets go of him, Rhino adjusts the position of the Garbage Can before placing the head of “The Pope” in between his legs. Rhino tries to lift Dinero up, presumably for a Piledriver on the Garbage Can... but Dinero counters and Back Body Drops Rhino spine-first onto the Garbage Can! The can is severely dented as Rhino falls onto it and Dinero drags “The War Machine” away from it before covering him, One! Two! Thre-Rhino gets the shoulder up! Dinero slowly gets back to his feet and gets Rhino up, pulling him along back towards the stairway leading to the entranceway and Dinero pulls him up the stairs, as the two competitors re-emerge on the stage in the Arena. Dinero and Rhino get a big pop as they come back out and Dinero hits Rhino with a few right hands, before looking to top it off with a Pimp Slap but Rhino ducks it and hits Dinero with a Back Suplex onto the ramp, Dinero landing right on his neck! Rhino, looking to end the match now, covers Dinero again, One! Two! Three-Dinero kicks out!

An angry and impatient Rhino slams his fists against the ramp before getting to his feet and getting Dinero up, ruthlessly throwing him further down the ramp. Dinero rolls over to the padded area on the outside of the ring and Rhino walks towards him, kicking Dinero in the sternum and knocking him back down when “The Pope” sits up. “The Man Monster” searches under the ring and takes out two Steel Chairs, both of which he throws into the ring, and Rhino then takes out a Tablewhich he also loads into the ring. Rhino then gets Dinero up and gets him back in the ring, standing up the Table in the corner of the ring and placing Dinero up against it. Rhino then slowly backs away with a grin on his face and he shouts “GORE! GORE! GORE!” before running across the ring to go for the Gore through the table... but Dinero moves out of the way and Rhino goes crashing through the Table!

The crowd cheer and chant “TNA! TNA! TNA!” as Dinero, who is sitting on the mat after just about managing to move out of Rhino’s way, and Dinero eventually drags Rhino into the middle of the ring by his arms, making the cover, and this could be it! One! Two! Three-Rhino gets the shoulder up! Dinero cannot believe it, he has still not put the match away, and “The Pope” takes several moments to rest before getting to his feet and waiting for Rhino to get to his feet. Rhino gets up eventually, and Dinero runs off the ropes, charging towards Rhino, but out of no-where, GORE! GORE! GORE! Rhino hits it! The cheering fans in the Ocean Center are silenced; one second it appeared that Dinero had the match in the palm of his hands, but the next second Rhino is back in control, and if he can make the cover there’s no way we will not see a new Global Champion crowned tonight! Rhino lies on the mat with Dinero a few feet and “The War Machine” slowly turns over, crawling across the canvas towards Dinero and covering him, this has to be it! One! Two! Three- NO! Somehow, someway, Dinero kicks out! There is still hope for the Congregation, for their leader survives the devastating Gore!

Rhino cannot believe it, as he sits up and looks back at Dinero in disbelief, he was a split second away at most from becoming TNA Global Champion! An exhausted Rhino struggles to his feet and takes one of the Steel Chairs, walking towards the corner of the ring and placing it in between the ropes. Rhino gets Dinero to his feet and holds him up by his face, saying to his face “You can only blame yourself for taking it this far, Dinero!” before hurling Dinero head-first towards the Steel Chair in the corner of the ring but Dinero manages to stop himself and he then takes the Chair as Rhino comes running towards him, and Dinero turns around and nails Rhino in the skull with the Steel Chair!

Dinero, on his last legs and his last bit of energy, has derailed “The War Machine” and an extremely groggy Rhino staggers backwards into the ropes as Dinero places the Chair on the mat. Rhino bounces off the ropes and stumbles forward, and Dinero nails Rhino with the Dinero Declaration onto the Steel Chair! Could that be it? Could that be the moment where this match is finally put to bed? Dinero pulls his weight along the mat and lays an arm over Rhino, as the cover is made... One! Two! Three!

D’Angelo Dinero def. Rhino at 17:18 to retain the TNA Global Championship

David Penzer: Here is your winner and still TNA Global Champion... “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero!

“Catholifunk” hits and D’Angelo Dinero, still lying on the mat, has his hand raised by the referee to a big pop from the crowd. Dinero eventually gets back to his feet and is awarded his TNA Global Championship which he holds up in the air before falling back with the ropes keeping him on his feet. “The Pope” then leaves the ring and hobbles up the ramp, high-fiving fans on his way back to the locker room with the title still in his possession.

Mike Tenay: He did it! I didn’t think it could happen, but D’Angelo Dinero has retained the TNA Global Championship against Rhino in the match that Rhino challenged “The Pope” to, a Falls Count Anywhere Match!

Mick Foley: I always had faith in Dinero and it has paid off, Professor, Dinero and Rhino put each other through hell but it’s hell trying to get to heaven and Dinero must be on cloud nine right now.

Mike Tenay: You have to give credit to Rhino though, “The War Machine” showed tonight that he didn’t get that moniker accidentally, but his performance wasn’t enough to win him the title.

Back in the Arena, we’re at the announce table with Mike Tenay and Mick Foley.

Mike Tenay: TNA’s eight-year celebration, Slammiversary VIII, takes place next month on June 13 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, tickets went on sale yesterday and Mick, I’m getting word that this Thursday on Impact qualifying will begin for the annual King of the Mountain Match which will take place at Slammiversary with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the line.

Mick Foley: I always love the King of the Mountain Matches, Professor, I was fortunate enough to compete in one last year and I’m sure that the next one at Slammiversary on June 13 will be the best King of the Mountain Match yet.

Mike Tenay: And coming up next at Sacrifice, ladies and gentlemen, the TNA founder Jeff Jarrett faces Mr. Anderson!

---

Meanwhile, Anderson retrieves some brass knuckles from in his trunks and slips them on, turning Jarrett around and hitting him with the brass knuckles! Before Jarrett falls to the ground, Anderson keeps Jarrett up and hits him with the Mic Drop! Anderson hooks Jarrett’s legs as the still-groggy referee counts: One! Two! Three!

Mr. Anderson def. Jeff Jarrett at 7:52 to advance in the #1 Contender’s Tournament

“Feedback” hits and a grinning Mr. Anderson, on his knees, has his hand raised by the referee who is still disorientated and has no idea whatsoever that Anderson cheated to win. Anderson gets to his feet and stands in the middle of the ring, looking exhausted but he still manages to motion around his waist that the TNA World Heavyweight Championship is in his future. He then reaches into the air and his microphone comes down which Anderson takes.

Mr. Anderson: (Breathing heavily) And the winner of the match... (Laughs) MIIIISSTTAAAHHHH... ANNNDDDEERRRSSSOONNN!

Jeff Jarrett: You saw what happened out there, Hulk, I was screwed by Mr. Anderson! I’ll be damned if he wins this tournament and gets that title shot because damnit, that’s not the way you do it.

Hogan nods his head in agreement with Jarrett, but before he can speak, Bischoff does.

Eric Bischoff: Well what do you expect us to do about it, Jeff? Talking to us because you’re pissed off that Anderson cheated will only get you so far, we may be in charge but in my book, you should be taking care of your problems on your own, so how about you do something about it?

Surprisingly, Jarrett takes this advice well, smirking before walking back towards the door.

Jeff Jarrett: You never disappoint.

Jarrett laughs to himself before walking out of the door.

Mr. Anderson: Now I only have to beat two more guys and then I have my golden ticket to Sacrifice... but if you wanna keep talking about gold, then the name on everybody’s lips will be the name of the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion...

Cover your ears, kids.

Mr. Anderson: MIIIISSSSTTAAAAHHHHHH... ANNNNNDDDEEERRRRSSOONNNN!!

Anderson waves goodbye to JB with a smile on his face, before walking away... or so we thought. Well actually, we all saw it coming.

Mr. Anderson: ANNNNNDDDEEERRRRSSOONNNN!!

Anderson then walks out of the shot for good as the camera follows him, but when Anderson leaves the interview set... BAM! Anderson gets a Guitar shot to the head... by JEFF JARRETT! Big pop from the crowd as Anderson’s head rests on broken pieces of wood from the guitar and Jarrett stands over him with a smirk on his face.

Jeff Jarrett: I know all of you haven’t seen me come out here outside of a match in a while, but I’m out here for a reason. And that reason... is Mr. Anderson.

Major heat at the mention of Anderson.

Jeff Jarrett: A couple of weeks ago, I faced him in the #1 Contender’s Tournament, and do you know what he did? He stole the victory right from under my nose.

More heat for Anderson.

Jeff Jarrett: Now I know that there are a lot of guys ahead of me in the pecking order right now in TNA, but I’m still more hungry than ever to climb up the ladder and put myself in contention for a title shot. That tournament was my only chance to do it, but Anderson, you took it away and mark my words, it’s gonna come back to bite you in the ass. before I came out here I talked to Hulk Hogan and he told me that I’ve got a match with you on Sunday.

Big pop from the crowd after that announcement, as Jarrett nods his head.

Jeff Jarrett: I admit, I was foolish enough to under-estimate the lengths you were willing to go to beat me last time, but now I know that you’re nothing more than a no-good, deceptive son of a bitch and mark my words, Ken, I’m gonna make you pay for it at Sacrifice.

Mr. Anderson: Aww, boohoo, Mr. Anderson didn’t play by the rules, wawawa... don’t ya’ get it yet, Jeff? I don’t give a crap about the rules! You should probably know this by now too but lemme’ remind ya’, I don’t give a crap about anything you say either!

Heat from the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: Jeffrey, you’re an even bigger moron than I thought you were before if you honestly think that just because you know what I can do that you stand a chance against me on Sunday ‘cause you need to realize that whether I’ve got brass knuckles or anything else or not, I am still better than you, don’t ya’ get it?

Jeff Jarrett: It’s your loss ‘cause your sense is too far up your own ass to realize that you’re not the best guy in this company like you say you are and you’re gonna find that out on Sunday.

Mr. Anderson: Not the best guy, huh? Well that’s rich coming from you, Jeffrey, it really is. How about... how about we don’t wait until Sacrifice and we see who’s just talking a load of crap right now? How does that sound? Mommy gonna let you out long enough to do that? Huh?

An angry Jarrett leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, as Anderson waits for him.

Mr. Anderson: Keep comin’, Jeff, keep comin’...

Anderson lets go of his microphone as soon as Jarrett comes face-to-face with him, and Anderson tries to land the first shot, but Jarrett blocks it and begins to hit Anderson with right hands! The crowd cheer and Anderson staggers backwards before falling over as Jarrett now begins to stomp away at him. Jeff takes his legs and motions to the crowd, looking to go for a Figure Four Leg Lock... but Anderson low-blows Jarrett! The crowd boo as Jarrett crouches down in pain and Anderson gets to his feet. He takes his microphone, and as Jarrett gets to his feet, Anderson hits Jarrett in the skull with the microphone! Jarrett falls to the floor and Anderson crouches down, looking over Jarrett as he speaks.

Mr. Anderson: Sacrifice, Jeff... your fate will be sealed, by MIISSSTAAAHHHH ANNNDDDEERRSSOONNNN...

The screen goes blank...

Mr. Anderson: ANNNDDDEERRSSOONNNN!!

---

Back in the Ocean Center, “My World” hits to a pop from the crowd and Jeff Jarrett makes his way out with his signature Guitar in hand, raising his hands and Guitar in the air as his pyro goes off before Jarrett walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and then entering the ring, putting his instrument out of the squared circle and removing his white and gold jacket.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this one-on-one contest! Introducing first, from Nashville, Tennessee, weighing two-hundred-and-thirty-five pounds... the founder of TNA Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett!

Then, “Mic Checked” blares out and the lights in the Arena go out for several moments until a spotlight shines down on the stage, and Mr. Anderson is standing there. Anderson stares blankly into the air for a few seconds before suddenly reaching into the air as his microphone comes down.

Mr. Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen... I weighed in this morning at two-hundred-and-forty-five pounds... I hail from Green – Bay – Wisconsin... I am the real King of the Mountain... MIIIISSSTTAAAAHHHH ... ANNNDEEERRRSSSSOOOONNN!!!

Anderson walks down the ramp and stops outside the ring as the spotlight follows him.

Mr. Anderson: Wait for it... it’s coming... ANNNDEEERRRSSSSOOOONNN!!!

Anderson lets go of the microphone and enters the ring, standing opposite Jarrett.

Match Six
Jeff Jarrett vs. Mr. Anderson
Singles Match


The bell rings and Jeff Jarrett and Mr. Anderson approach the centre of the ring. The smirk on Anderson's face does not please Jarrett, who catches him off guard with a blow to the face! Anderson backpedals into the corner of the ring and Jarrett walks towards him, rapidly hitting him with more right hands, and subsequent kicks to the mid-section. The referee Slick Johnson gets in between Anderson and Jarrett and Anderson quickly leaves the ring, regaining his composure. Moments later, he re-enters the ring and prepares to lock up with Jarrett but instead kicks him in the mid-section and gets him in a standing headlock. Jarrett pushes Anderson into the ropes and when Anderson comes back he floors Jarrett with a shoulder block. Anderson runs off the ropes and Jarrett rolls over onto his stomach, as Anderson jumps over him and rebounds off the ropes again. He comes back and Jarrett gets to his feet, hitting a hip toss followed by an elbow drop to the sternum. Jarrett covers: One! Anderson kicks out, and in the process pushes Jarrett away. Both competitors get back to their feet and lock up.

Anderson wrenches Jarrett's arm around and gets him in a wrist lock, but Jarrett gets out of it with a leg sweep which floors his opponent. Jarrett then takes his legs and tries to turn him over onto his stomach, but Anderson pushes 'The King of the Mountain' away into the corner of the ring with his legs. Anderson then gets back up and charges towards Jarrett but receives a boot to the face, followed by a Bulldog! Jarrett gets back up again and gets the Daytona Beach crowd going as he shouts 'C'mon!' before making the cover once again: One! Two! Right on the count of two, Anderson gets the shoulder up. Jarrett, on his knees, glances at the referee before getting to his feet and getting his opponent up. Jarett gets Anderson in a front facelock but Ken battles out of it with some blows to the mid-section before getting Jarrett in a front facelock of his own and hitting a Suplex. Anderson gets up to his feet and stands over Jarrett with a smirk on his face before driving his elbow into the TNA founder's sternum and covering: One! Two! Kick out from Jarrett. Anderson then climbs on top of Jarrett and hits him with some blows to the head until the ref Johnson tells Anderson to stop, which he reluctantly does.

Now back on his feet, Anderson gets Jarrett up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. He walks towards him and climbs to the second rope on top of Jarrett, hitting him with more punches to the head as a minority of the crowd count along. On the ninth blow, Anderson briefly pauses and outstretches his arms, posing for the crowd but it almost costs him as Jarrett lifts him up and brings him into the middle of the ring! Jarrett looks to go for a Powerbomb, but Anderson continues to hit him with punches and he staggers backwards into the ropes, as both fall over the ropes and out of the ring to the floor! The crowd cheer with the two competitors almost at their feet and the referee begins the count: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! Anderson and Jarrett get back up and exchange blows. FIVE! Jarrett goes for a kick to the gut but Anderson catches his leg and lays him out with a clothesline. SIX! Anderson slides into the ring, only to exit once again to break the count and to continue his work.

ONE! Anderson gets Jarrett up to his feet, and drives him spine-first into the steel guard rail! TWO! Jarrett sinks down to a seated position, his head resting against the guard rail, and Anderson mercilessly drives his boot into Jarrett's throat. THREE! He keeps it there for several moments until re-entering the ring. FOUR! FIVE! SIX! Jarrett gets back up. SEVEN! EIGHT! Jarrett re-enters the ring. Jarrett is back in the ring, but is lying down on the mat and Anderson takes advantage, stomping away at the veteran. He then gets him to his feet and Irish whips him off the ropes, ducking down in preparation for a back body drop, but Jarrett Sunset Flips over Anderson and lands on the mat with his hands around Anderson's legs. Jarrett tries to pull his opponent down for the cover, but Anderson stays on his feet. He then drops down to his knees on top of Jarrett and grabs Jarrett by the legs, making the cover: One! Two! Jarrett kicks out! Anderson thought he had the match won there, and he takes Jarrett by the head, pummeling him with blows until he gets back to his feet.

Anderson looks down at 'The King of the Mountain' with a scowl on his face before running off the ropes, but Jarrett takes him down with a drop toe hold. Jarrett gets back up and grabs Anderson's left leg, lifting it into the air before slamming it down to the canvas! Anderson holds his knee in pain and Jarrett, who is beginning to feel the effects of this match, drags Anderson by his arms towards the ropes. Jarrett drapes him over the second rope and rebounds off the opposite ropes, running across the ring and hitting Anderson with a Leapfrog Body Guillotine! The crowd cheer and Jarrett begins to get his strut on - literally. He performs his trademark strut around the ring before walking towards Anderson and lifting up his legs, then lifting up the rest of his body so he is in a wheelbarrow position. Jarrett keeps him in that position for a few moments, before driving Anderson into the mat with a Wheelbarrow Facebuster!

Jarrett rolls Anderson over onto his back and hooks his legs for the cover: One! Two! Anderson gets the shoulder up! Jarrett shouts 'Damnit!', becoming frustrated that he can't put the loudmouth away, and he sits Anderson up, wrapping his arms around his neck and locking Anderson in a Sleeper Hold. He keeps him in the hold for several moments until Anderson makes it to one knee and he then gets back to his feet. In an attempt to keep the hold locked in, Jarrett jumps onto his back, but Anderson reverses into the corner of the ring, driving Jarrett spine-first into the turnbuckles!

With Jarrett off his back, Anderson subsequently lifts him up to the top rope and climbs up there. He gets him in a front face-lock, and nails Jarrett with a Superplex from the top rope! Both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas next to each other, until Anderson manages to lay his arm over Jarrett and cover him: One! Two! Jarrett gets the shoulder up! Anderson cannot believe it. He thought he had Jarrett beat with that Superplex but Jarrett managed to get the shoulder up. Anderson struggles to his feet and walks towards the referee, holding up three fingers in Slick's face and shouting 'That was three!' repeatedly. The ref shakes his head and says 'Two!' and Anderson gets irritated, as he leaves the ring and walks towards SoCal Val, yelling 'Get off the damn Chair!' as she immediately does and he takes the Steel Chair. Anderson enters the ring with the Chair in his hands and he prepares to hit Jarrett with it but Slick Johnson stops him and takes it out of his hands, to the relief of the fans.

Johnson walks across the ring and passes the Chair out of the ring, but meanwhile Anderson is in the corner and he rips the turnbuckle off, throwing it far away so it cannot be retrieved, behind the referee's back. He then gets a groggy Jarrett back to his feet and attempts an Irish whip into the corner without the turnbuckle but 'The King of the Mountain' reverses it into a Whip of his own and Anderson almost goes into the steel but stops himself. But, when he turns around he is met by a Dropkick from Jarrett! The veteran then makes the cover, One! Two! Kick out from Anderson! Jarrett sits up, sweat dripping from his forehead, and he runs his hands through his hair, wondering what it will take. He struggles back to his feet and walks towards the corner of the ring (a corner with a top turnbuckle), climbing to the top rope.

Jarrett waits for Anderson to get to his feet, and when he does, Jarrett goes for a Cross Body but Anderson manages to catch him on the back of his shoulders and he then nails Jarrett with a Rolling Fireman's Carry Slam! Moments later, Anderson slowly hooks his legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Three-NO! Jarrett kicks out a split-second before the three count! The crowd cheer in jubilation that their hero isn't out of it yet, but they are far from the emotions that Mr. Anderson is feeling right now. Anderson looks like he wants to go ballistic but he evidently holds it in, getting to his feet and looking down at Jarrett with an angry look on his face.

Anderson gets Jarrett to his feet and holds him up by his head, shouting in his face, 'Do you know what you're gettin' yourself into?! The longer you let this go on, the worse it's gonna get for-' but he gets cut off when Jarrett kicks him in the mid-section, wrenches his arm around, hooks his leg, and nails Anderson with the STROKE! JARRETT HITS THE STROKE! The crowd go wild, but the cheers die down when they see that Anderson has rolled away from Jarrett upon impact, and 'The King of the Mountain' is still exhausted and hurt. Jarrett clutches his ribs whilst Anderson is quite simply laid out on the other side of the ring, and Jeff crawls across the ring towards his opponent, eventually laying an arm over him and making the cover: One! Two! Three- KICK OUT! Anderson kicks out!

The vast majority of the fans in the Ocean Center boo, incensed that Mr. Anderson kicked out, and Jarrett is feeling the exact same way. After almost twenty seconds pass with both men still down on the mat, Jarrett gets back to his feet, but almost immediately he falls backwards into the ropes and the ropes are the only reason that he stays on his feet. Jarrett tries to lift Anderson to his feet, but the most Anderson can muster is on one knee. With the referee's view inadvertently obstructed by Jarrett, Anderson momentarily blinds Jarrett with an Eye Rake! The crowd boo in disapproval of Anderson's dirty tactics, but he can't capitalize straight away as it takes the loudmouth a while to get to his feet. When he is up, Anderson lifts Jarrett onto his shoulders and moves towards the corner of the ring, looking to go for a Snake Eyes into the exposed steel in the corner, but Jarrett slips off his shoulders and lands on his feet behind Anderson.

Jarrett is about to drive Anderson into the steel, but Anderson pulls the ref Slick Johnson towards him so that if Jarrett pushes him forward, Johnson gets it. Jarrett sees Slick and stops, but that proves to be costly, as Anderson hits Jarrett with a Low Blow! The referee's view was obstructed and it looks to have cost Jarrett the match, as Anderson gets him in position and nails Jarrett with the Mic Drop! The Arena is filled with heat as Anderson, who has a grin on his face, crawls towards Jarrett and covers him: One! Two! Three! It's over!

Mr. Anderson def. Jeff Jarrett at 13:39

'Feedback' blares out to huge heat from the crowd and an exhausted Mr. Anderson struggles to his feet. The referee goes to raise his hand but Anderson pulls away and staggers towards the corner of the ring, raising his hand in the air accompanied by a smirk. He then hobbles towards the middle of the ring, standing over a motionless Jarrett as he reaches into the air and receives his microphone. The lights go out and a large spotlight shines down on Anderson, who speaks.

Mr. Anderson: (Regaining his breath) And the winner of the match... MIISSSTTAAAAHHHHH ANNDDDEERRRRSSSOONNN!

More heat, as Anderson pauses before...

Mr. Anderson: ANNDDDEERRRRSSSOONNN!

He must be the most hated man in TNA right now.

Mr. Anderson: Whoa, whoa, whoa... I see you all sittin' down, waiting for the next match which obviously won't be as good as what I just did to Jeff Jarrett...

Anderson looks down at Jarrett and smirks, before continuing.

Mr. Anderson: ... And I should have said this before, but uh... I'm just gettin' started.

With that said, Anderson drops to his knees, sits Jarrett up, and begins to pummel him with Microphone shots to the skull! The crowd continue to boo as Anderson shows no mercy towards the veteran and continues to assault him, hitting Jarrett with the mic over and over and over again. Even when Jarrett is badly busted open, Anderson doesn't stop and reccurently hits him, only worsening the severity of the wound with every shot. He finally stops, which relieves the crowd... or so we thought. Anderson leaves the ring, only to pick up the Steel Chair he tried to use during the match, and he enters the ring with it, placing it on the ground as he threatens to hit Slick Johnson with it and Slick leaves the ring. Anderson gets a lifeless Jarrett to his feet and drags him towards the corner of the ring where the turnbuckle is exposed, and Anderson slams Jarrett face-first into the exposed steel repeatedly for several moments until letting go as Jeff falls in an inanimate heap to the canvas.

Anderson walks towards him and lifts Jarrett up yet again, saying 'You're not getting away that easily' before getting him in position and nailing Jarrett with a Mic Drop on the Steel Chair! Jarrett's face is now a Crimson Mask all over, and the blood is now trickling down his neck onto his chest, but Anderson now takes the Steel Chair, and hits Jarrett with Steel Chair shots to the ribs relentlessly! Just about everybody in the Arena loses count of how many times Anderson hit Jarrett with the Chair, it's definitely over the dozen mark, and now it looks like Anderson is finally done as he drops the Chair next to the carcass of Jarrett and leaves the ring, walking up the ramp with the crowd booing the hell out of him and chanting 'You Suck!' and 'F*ck you, Ken!' Anderson simply saunters towards the stage with a cocky smirk on his face and he looks back at Jarrett once more as EMTs rush to the ring past him to help Jarrett, before Anderson finally leaves.

Mike Tenay: This is... this is hard to watch.

Mick Foley: Y'know, I've never been a fan of Mr. Anderson for his attitude but I have for what he can do in the ring. But, uh... I don't think I can respect the man at all after what we just saw. I don't think anybody can.

Mike Tenay: (Sighing) I have been here in TNA since its first show on June 19, 2002. I've seen great things in that ring, and I've seen horrific things too. But with all honesty, Mick... nothing compares in terms of severe lack of class and severity, to what Ken just did to Jeff Jarrett. That man is the founder of this company, if it wasn't for him, there would be no TNA. I'm grateful to him for it, I always will be, as will a lot of the guys in the back, regardless of their attitude... but Mr. Anderson showed his true colours tonight. And they are not nice colours at all.

Meanwhile, in the ring EMTs lift the lifeless Jarrett onto the stretcher and strap him onto it, removing him from the squared circle and carrying the TNA founder up the ramp. There is complete silence, apart from almost every single fan in the crowd who chant 'Jarrett!' in unison repeatedly.

Mick Foley: Mike, it kills me to say it, but... I have a bad feeling that this could be the last time we see Jeff Jarrett in a TNA ring.

Mike Tenay: When we know the injuries that Jeff has sustained, we will let you know immediately. But until then, I just want to wish him the best in his recovery and our thoughts are with his fiancť Karen and his three daughters Joslyn, Jaclyn and Jerlyn. The show must go on, however, and coming up next it is the match which is three months in the making. Desmond Wolfe faces Rob Van Dam, first... time... ever.

---

‘Modest’ plays and Jeff Hardy gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the refereee, as does AJ Styles, to a big pop from the crowd, but the winning duo don’t have long to celebrate, as Mr. Anderson jumps Hardy and Styles from behind! The cheers turn to boos as one of the losers of the match attacks the winners, as Hardy goes down and Anderson stomps away at him, throwing Styles through the ropes.

Tenay: Aww, come on! That sore loser Mr. Anderson’s attacking Hardy and Styles, somebody stop this!

Then, Sting runs out and makes his way down the ramp, entering the ring and immediately going after Anderson, taking him down with a clothesline but then Samoa Joe runs down the ramp and attacks Sting! ‘The Icon’ is down and Joe stomps away at him whilst Anderson gets up and he and Wolfe, who has been helped by Anderson, continue to assault Styles, who has re-entered the ring but has been taken down by Joe, and Hardy.

Taz: Is anybody gonna help these guys?! They’re getting their asses kicked in there!

As soon as he says that...

‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out, AND THE CROWD GO ABSOLUTELY NUTS, AS ROB VAN DAM JUMPS OVER THE SECURITY RAIL AND CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE, FLYING OFF AND TAKING WOLFE DOWN WITH A KICK TO THE HEAD!

Mike Tenay: OH MY GOD! THE HOTTEST FREE AGENT IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING, ROB - VAN - DAM, IS HERE, IN TNA!!!

Anderson runs at Van Dam, BUT RVD LAYS OUT ANDERSON WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK AND HE THEN RUNS OFF THE ROPES, HITTING ANDERSON WITH THE ROLLING THUNDER!!!

Taz: THEY ARE GOING ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN’ NUTS FOR VAN DAM, BABY, AND I CAN’T BLAME THEM ONE BIT!

Van Dam springs back up, and Samoa Joe runs at RVD but Van Dam wipes out Joe with a kick to the head and RVD then climbs to the top rope, making his ‘RVD’ gesture, BEFORE NAILING SAMOA JOE WITH THE FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH!!!

Mike Tenay: WHAT A MONUMENTAL MOMENT ON A MONUMENTAL NIGHT! ROB VAN DAM HAS ARRIVED IN TNA!’

‘Whole F’n Show’ plays again as Hardy, Sting and Styles get back up and all four men raise each other’s hands to close this historic Monday Night Impact.

Rob Van Dam: I didn’t come here for the money or because it’s the flavour of the month, I came here to do what RVD does better than anything else, and that’s-

Van Dam is interrupted when ‘Hungry’ blares out and the cocky but talented Desmond Wolfe walks out onto the stage, one of his arms linked with the arm of his valet Chelsea and holding a microphone in his free hand.

Wolfe: That’s what, Rob? That’s what?

Heat for Wolfe from the crowd, who aren’t happy that he has interrupted RVD.

Desmond Wolfe: Knowing you, you’ll go on about ‘the good old days’ when you were wrestling in a bingo hall, as clichť as it is, and you had to change into your ring gear in some toilets, but that just goes to show that you’re not a good wrestler, and you don’t appreciate good wrestling just like all of these wankers, which is why you’re not successful.

Rob Van Dam: Not successful? Dude ... I’ve been a World Champion. I’ve wrestled in front of over eighty-thousand people and sure, you might be a better ‘technical’ wrestler than me if that’s what you wanna call it, but RVD is still more successful than you.

Cheers for Van Dam, who smirks at the ovation he gets, but Wolfe is far from pleased.

Desmond Wolfe: Well let me tell you something, ‘dude’, that was all three or four years ago, a lot has changed since then. You’re almost fourty bloody years old for goodness sake, you’re just like people here like Hulk Hogan and Jeff Jarrett, you just don’t know when to do the right thing and step out of the spotlight to make way for people like me who deserve to be the face of TNA, but you definitely don’t!

Heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: So you can try and look as laid back as possible, Mr. Van Dam, and call me ‘dude’ and ‘man’, but I can see from here that deep down you’re bloody petrified of me.

Rob Van Dam: Hmm ... maybe, man, maybe, but you’re up there, I’m here, maybe it’s because you can’t see very well all the way back there, so why don’t you come down to this ring, stand face-to-face with me, and say that again.

Wolfe shrugs his shoulders before he and Chelsea walk down the ramp and Wolfe enters the ring as Chelsea stands on the outside, and the Brit comes face-to-face with RVD.

Desmond Wolfe: I’ll say it nice and slowly for you; you ... are ... bloody ... petrified ... of ...

Wolfe isn’t given the chance to finish, though, as Rob Van Dam lays him out with a roundhouse kick! The crowd go wild and Van Dam then climbs to the top rope, looking to go for the Five Star Frog Splash, but Wolfe leaves the ring in the nick of time and he staggers up the ramp, holding his head with Chelsea in tow. ‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out again and Wolfe looks at RVD once more, who performs his pose to Wolfe before pointing at Desmond and giving him a thumbs-down, possibly a sign of things to come between these two...

Skip to Lockdown, where Team Angle which includes Van Dam defeats Team Flair including Wolfe in the Lethal Lockdown Match. Then, we see the end of Rob Van Dam’s match with Samoa Joe on the April 19 edition of Impact where Wolfe costs him the match and then we see RVD cost Wolfe his match with Jeff Hardy.

Desmond Wolfe: ... but you didn’t exactly do yourselves any favours last week, did ya’? I was robbed by Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam just so they could please all of you, who aren’t worth a bloody thing! For three months, I’ve had to put up with RVD leeching off my popularity, showing up during my matches and telling anybody who’s willing to listen to him, and the numbers are pretty thin, that I’m his ‘rival’.

Desmond removes his shades before continuing to talk.

Desmond Wolfe: So Rob, stop flattering yourself because the only way that somebody could ever be my rival is if they were on my level... so you can immediately cross yourself off the list.

More heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: But nonetheless, Rob, because you’ve been an absolute nuisance to me, I’m going to make sure that your sole purpose of coming to TNA is fulfilled, and the dream you’ve been chasing ever since you stepped into this ring for the first time is accomplished. That’s right, Rob, your ears are not deceiving you; you can face yours truly, one-on-one, at Sacrifice.

Mixed reaction from the crowd, some cheering because they are immediately looking forward to the match at Sacrifice if RVD accepts but some booing because Wolfe hyped himself up so much.

Desmond Wolfe: I’m challenging you to a match at Sacrifice, Rob, and I can already see you jumping up and down and screaming like a little girl so I can consider this a done deal. But... don’t think for one second that I’m challenging you to a match because you’re a threat to me, Rob, or because you’re on my level. Because the fact of the matter is, you’re not, you never have, and you never will be, not even in your dreams.

More heat. Yay.

Desmond Wolfe: I want this to happen just so I can dispose of the filth of your name from my immaculate reputation... and I can get rid of you once and for all, so I can move onto bigger and better things which I would be on tonight if I wasn’t unfairly cost my match last week. So Rob, when you’re facing me at Sacrifice I want you to make the most of it because before you know it, it’ll all be over and you’ll never be fortunate enough to be mentioned in the same breath at Desmond Wolfe ever... again.

Jeremy Borash: Rob, the question on everybody’s minds and the question that I’m going to ask you is... do you accept Desmond’s challenge?

Rob Van Dam: JB, the second I saw Desmond challenge me to a match at Sacrifice on that TV screen, I knew what my answer was gonna be. Like you said, three months in the making... three months of me and him trying to prove who’s the better man, who can put their money where their mouth is, but the match still hasn’t happened.

RVD turns to the camera.

Rob Van Dam: Desmond, you didn’t have to sugarcoat it like you did, you didn’t have to make it look like you’re better than me, because the fact is you have nothing to prove that you are. You wanna prove me wrong? Give it your best shot on May 16th... because at Sacrifice you’re damn right you’re facing RVD.

Van Dam’s last words repeatedly echo, as the video package fades out with RVD looking at the camera...

---

Back in the Ocean Center, “Menacing” blares out to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe emerges from the smoke on the stage hand-in-hand with Chelsea, giving the fans his two-fingered gesture. The Englishman saunters down the ramp with his valet and she holds down the middle rope for Wolfe to enter the ring, then posing for the crowd once again. He removes his shades and grey jacket and gives them to Chelsea who leaves the ring.

David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sacrifice continues with this one-on-one grudge match! Introducing first, from London, England, weighing two-hundred-and-twenty five pounds, accompanied to the ring by Chelsea... Desmond Wolfe!

Then, “Whole F’n Show” hits to a big pop and Rob Van Dam walks out, posing for the crowd as his pyro goes off. Van Dam walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before entering the ring and RVD then climbs to the second rope in the corner, posing once again. Rob climbs back down and stands opposite his opponent Wolfe, Van Dam looking pretty relaxed.

David Penzer: And his opponent, from Battle Creek, Michigan, weighing two-hundred-and-thirty-seven pounds... Rob Van Dam!

Match Seven
Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Van Dam
Grudge Match


The bell rings and Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam approach the centre of the ring, having a heated stare-down which lasts for several moments before they engage in the lock-up. The two competitors try to overpower each other, with Van Dam managing to bring Wolfe down to one knee but Desmond then pulls out of the tie-up and takes RVD down with a leg sweep. He then tries to get on top of Van Dam, but Rob quickly rolls away and they both get back to their feet. He performs his signature ‘RVD’ taunt which infuriates Wolfe who runs towards him, but Rob then begins to unload on Desmond with left and right hands. Van Dam rebounds off the ropes behind his back and runs at Wolfe but the Englishman floors him with a shoulder block. Desmond then runs off the ropes and goes for an elbow drop but when RVD moves out of the way Wolfe manages to stay on his feet, although he momentarily loses balance. Van Dam takes advantage and jumps into the air, hitting Wolfe with a kick to the sternum which knocks him down to the mat. Rob then makes the first cover of the match, One! Unsurprisingly, Desmond kicks out rather swiftly.

Van Dam gets Wolfe back to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. Rob then runs at him but Desmond moves out of the way. RVD manages to stop himself before crashing into the turnbuckles, and he jumps to the second rope, going for a heel kick but Wolfe catches his foot and then pulls him into a Clothesline which knocks ‘The Whole F’n Show’ down. Desmond then takes a moment to give the fans his two-fingered gesture which gets a lot of heat, before he runs off the ropes and hits Van Dam with a knee drop. Wolfe gets back up and gets RVD to his feet, only to take him back down with a Snapmare. The Englishman then gets Rob in a bodyscissors submission hold, but it doesn’t take too long for Van Dam to break out of it with the ropes not too far away and the veteran manages to make his way across the ring to get his feet on the bottom rope. An unhappy Wolfe is forced to let go by the referee Dave Hebner, but when he gets back up he stomps away at Rob’s mid-section, perhaps beginning to target that area of the body.

Wolfe then gets Van Dam back to his feet and hits him with a European Uppercut which sends Rob back-pedalling into the ropes. Desmond then runs at him and Clotheslines Van Dam over the ropes and out of the ring, sending him crashing down to the concrete floor! Wolfe leaves the squared circle and gets RVD to his feet, setting him up against the ring apron and hitting him with several knife-edge chops to the chest which turn Van Dam’s chest red and all of the chops are met with ‘Wooooo’s from the crowd in honour of Ric Flair. Desmond brings Rob away from the ring apron, and then drives Van Dam spine-first into the steel security rail!RVD sinks down to the floor and holds one hand on his back as Wolfe gets Van Dam back up and throws him back into the ring. Desmond then re-enters the squared circle and immediately covers Rob, One! Two! Right on the count of two, RVD gets the shoulder up. It isn’t too surprising, but Wolfe is nonetheless angry as he gets to his feet and shouts at Dave Hebner ‘Do your bloody job right!’ before getting Rob back up.

Desmond Irish whips Van Dam into the corner of the ring and subsequently runs towards him, but Rob hits the Englishman with a boot to the face which sends Wolfe staggering backwards. RVD then begins to hit Desmond with kicks to the legs and blows to the face until capping it off with a Spin Kick which sends Wolfe into the corner. Van Dam runs towards him and hits Desmond with a turnbuckle thrust to the mid-section, then hitting another one before moving away with a back handspring and running up again, jumping onto Wolfe and hitting him with a Monkey Flip!RVD is suddenly starting to get back into the match, and he runs off the ropes, hitting Desmond with a Discus Leg Drop before making the cover, One! Two! Wolfe kicks out. Rob gets back up and gets Wolfe to his feet, wrenching his arm around around and pulling Desmond in for a kick to the mid-section. RVD gets the Englishman in a front facelock and lifts him into the air, hitting Wolfe with a Suplex.

Van Dam takes a moment to mock Wolfe, mimicking his two-fingered gesture before running off the ropes and carthweeling over Desmond, going for a Standing Moonsault... but Wolfe gets the knees up!RVD clutches his ribs in pain and Wolfe gets to his feet moments later, getting Van Dam up and locking ‘Mr. Pay Per View’ in a Bearhug, targeting Rob’s mid-section again. The Englishman tries to apply as much pressure as possible and RVD frantically waves his arms around, trying to escape and showing the effect that this is having on him. Van Dam eventually begins to hit Wolfe with some elbows to the head, and after about half a dozen of them he escapes. Rob rebounds off the ropes behind his back and runs towards Desmond, but Wolfe quickly gets RVD in a Hammerlock and subsequently a Single-Arm DDT! Van Dam lands awkwardly on his right arm on the mat and Wolfe turns him over onto his back, hooking Rob’s legs and making the cover, One! Two! RVD kicks out!

Wolfe glances at the referee Dave Hebner before getting back to his feet and getting Van Dam up. Desmond Irish whips him into the corner and hits Rob with some blows to the head before running to the opposite corner and jumping to the second rope, quickly ‘saluting’ the crowd and running back, hitting RVD with a Running European Uppercut! Van Dam falls forward onto his face and Desmond runs off the ropes, planting an Elbow Drop into the back of RVD’s neck. Wolfe turns Rob over onto his back and covers again, wanting to end this match as soon as possible: One! Two! Van Dam kicks out! Desmond slams his fists against the mat in frustration, not happy that he can’t put his opponent away. Wolfe gets back to his feet and gets Rob back up, walking towards the ropes and tilting back in between them before running at RVD and going for the Jawbreaker Lariat... but Van Dam ducks it.Wolfe turns around and goes for a kick to Rob’s mid-section, but Van Dam catches his leg and then hits Desmond with a Step-Over Spinning Heel Kick!

RVD gets back to his feet and climbs to the top rope, eagerly waiting for Wolfe to get to his feet. When Desmond gets back, Van Dam jumps from the top rope and knocks Wolfe back down with a Flying Thrust Kick to the sternum!Rob manages to stay on his feet and he looks around the Ocean Center with the fans cheering, performing his ‘RVD’ taunt before running off the ropes, and hitting Desmond with the Rolling Thunder! Van Dam makes the cover, could this be it? One! Two! No! Wolfe gets the shoulder up! Rob sits up with a look of disappointment on his face and gets to his feet, dragging the Englishman towards the corner of the ring. Van Dam takes a few moments to regain his breath before jumping to the top rope, looking to go for a Split-Legged Moonsault but before he can leave the top rope Desmond causes Rob to lose his balance, getting up and pressing his weight down on the ropes! RVD is now stuck in a Tree of Woe position and Wolfe sees this, smirking at the sight of Van Dam trying to get down. Desmond backs into the opposite corner before running across the ring, and hitting Van Dam with a Baseball Slide!

Van Dam then falls back down to the mat in an awkward position and Wolfe immediately makes the cover, One! Two! RVD gets the shoulder up! Wolfe’s frustration continues to grow after Van Dam kicked out again, and he sits Rob up, locking ‘The Whole F’n Show’ in a sleeper hold. RVD waves his arms around, trying to escape and the crowd chant ‘RVD! RVD! RVD!’ but die out when Rob stops moving his arms. The referee Dave Hebner lifts his arm up once and drops it. Hebner lifts it up again, and still no response from Van Dam. Hebner lifts it up again, if Rob doesn’t respond he loses the match, before dropping it... RVD doesn’t let his arm drop to the mat! The crowd cheer and Van Dam begins to wave his arms around again, refusing to lose this match, and he manages to get to his feet. RVD hits Wolfe with some elbows to the mid-section until he finally escapes from Desmond’s grasps. Wolfe tries to regain control straight away, kicking Van Dam in the mid-section and running off the ropes to go for a Clothesline but Rob ducks it, and then hits Wolfe with a Roundhouse Kick!

Desmond precariously falls to the mat near the corner of the ring and Van Dam slowly moves towards the corner, jumping to the top rope and nailing Wolfe with a Split-Legged Moonsault! RVD hooks his legs and makes the cover, could this be it? One! Two! Three- No! Wolfe gets the shoulder up just before the three count! The camera gives us a close-up view of the look of concern on Chelsea’s face outside the ring, and RVD slowly gets to his feet, eventually climbing to the top rope. Looking exhausted and sweating profusely, Van Dam poses for the crowd, but Chelsea climbs up onto the ring apron and distracts RVD! The fans boo as Rob shouts at her ‘Get the hell away!’ before telling the referee Brian Hebner to take care of it. Hebner tells Chelsea to get off the ring apron and she reluctantly does, and meanwhile Van Dam goes for the Five-Star Frog Splash... but Wolfe rolls out of the way! If Chelsea hadn’t got involved RVD would have hit the patented Five-Star Frog Splash and this match would certainly have been over but now Van Dam and Wolfe are both down on the mat next to each other.

After several moments, Wolfe slowly gets to his feet and waits for RVD to get back up, taking the time to recover. When Van Dam eventually gets back up, Wolfe tilts in between the ropes before running forward and going for the Jawbreaker Lariat... but RVD falls to the mat in exhaustion, perhaps not on purpose, and Wolfe hits the referee Dave Hebner instead! With Hebner down and Van Dam down again as well, Desmond looks around the ring before turning to Chelsea and shouting ‘Chelsea! Get a Chair!’ She immediately obeys and lifts up the ring skirt, getting a Steel Chair from under the ring and sliding it into the ring for Wolfe to pick up. RVD is now getting back up and Desmond looks at the Chair, then looking at Van Dam and grinning. Rob is now up, and Wolfe lifts the Chair into the air... but Van Dam low-blows Wolfe! Mike Tenay remarks ‘Normally I don’t endorse cheating, but damnit, Desmond Wolfe deserved that!’ as the Englishman drops the Chair and Van Dam picks it up. RVD throws the chair into Wolfe’s hands, before hitting him with the Van Daminator!

Wolfe falls back into the corner of the ring and sinks down to a seated position in the corner. Van Dam picks up the Chair again and backs into the opposite corner before running across the ring and nailing Wolfe with the Chair Surf! The fans go wild and Chelsea looks on in horror as RVD throws the Chair out of the ring and drags Wolfe, who is now busted open, into the centre of the ring by his legs. Van Dam slowly climbs to the top rope and poses for the crowd, then smirking at Chelsea who brought the Chair into play in this contest in the first place, before finally hitting Wolfe with the Five-Star Frog Splash! RVD clutches his mid-section in pain before lying backwards on top of Wolfe as the referee Dave Hebner begins to regain consciousness and crawls towards Van Dam and Wolfe near the edge of the ring, eventually making the cover: One! Two! Three- Chelsea pulls the referee out of the ring! The livid fans in the Ocean Center boo as Dave Hebner lies motionlessly on the floor outside the ring and a confused RVD slowly gets to his feet, seeing Chelsea who is now standing on the ring apron with a smile on her face.

Van Dam has an epic stare-down with Chelsea, and she tries to slap him... but RVD catches her arm, grabs her by the hair, and then kisses her! Van Dam turns to the crowd and shrugs his shoulders with a smirk on his face, before lifting Chelsea over the ropes and bringing her into the ring! Chelsea immediately climbs on top of Wolfe to protect him, but then a new referee in the form of Andrew Thomas runs down the ramp and enters the ring! Thomas gets his life-defining moment as the crowd cheer, and in his first action, he tells Chelsea to leave the ring and go backstage! Chelsea pleads with the referee but to no avail as Thomas remains defiant and Chelsea reluctantly leaves the ring, but meanwhile Wolfe low blows Van Dam! The Englishman then gets back to his feet and slowly tilts in between the ropes as RVD is about to fall to the mat, before running forward and nailing Van Dam with the Jawbreaker Lariat! The crowd boo and we even see a plastic cup thrown into the ring as an exhausted Wolfe slowly hooks Van Dam’s legs and the cover is made by a suspicious Andrew Thomas: One! Two! Three!

Desmond Wolfe def. Rob Van Dam at 16:26

David Penzer: Here is your winner... Desmond Wolfe!

“Menacing” hits to huge heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe slowly gets to his feet, not letting the referee raise his hand as he leans forward against the ropes and looks directly at the camera, grinning as he gives the camera his two-fingered gesture. With blood all over his forehead, Wolfe leaves the ring and hobbles towards Chelsea who is grinning as they link arms and walk up the ramp as infuriated fans hurl abuse at them. The duo reach the stage and Desmond gives the fans his two-fingered gesture again before walking behind the curtain. In the ring, Rob Van Dam remains on the mat as the referee Andrew Thomas checks on him, having been robbed of a victory tonight.

Mike Tenay: Rob Van Dam should have won that match, but that jezabel Chelsea got involved and in the end Desmond Wolfe robbed Van Dam of a victory!

Back in the Ocean Center, “Modest” hits to a pop from the crowd and the lights go out with green lasers shooting off from the stage. Jeff Hardy walks out with some white and gold facepaint and he makes his way down the ramp whilst singing along to his theme song, high-fiving some fans before sliding into the ring. Hardy climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd before climbing back down. Then, “Gold Metal” blares out to a big pop and after a few moments, Kurt Angle ascends up to the ramp from an elevator, throwing his hands in the air as his pyro goes off. An intense-looking Angle walks down the ramp, stepping into the ring and posing once more before removing his T-Shirt and tags, throwing his shirt into the crowd and placing his tag around the ring-post. Then, last but not least, “Get Ready To Fly” plays and AJ Styles walks out with the hood on his jacket hiding his face, as he walks half-way down the ramp before flicking his hood back and throwing his arms out as his pyro goes off. Styles then walks forward and enters the ring, posing for the crowd again before removing his jacket and the title from around his waist. Jeremy Borash enters the ring and stands in between the trio with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: The following contest, live from the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida, is scheduled for one fall and is a Three-Way Match for the TNA Heavyweight Championship of the World! When the bell rings, the man in charge is TNA official, Earl Hebner.

“You screwed Bret!”

Jeremy Borash: And now... ladies and gentlemen, introducing first of all the challengers. In the corner to my left... weighing in at two-hundred-and-thirty pounds, from Charlotte, North Carolina, he is ‘The Charismatic Enigma’... Jeff Hardy!

Big pop, as the camera cuts to Hardy before moving back to Borash.

Jeremy Borash: And now... ladies and gentlemen, introducing... weighing in at two-hundred-and-fourty-one pounds... from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania... he is professional wrestling’s only Olympic Gold Medallist... he is Kurt Angle!

Big pop for Angle, who looks at the camera and opens his mouth showing his gumshield which reads ‘Champion’ on it.

Jeremy Borash: And now... ladies and gentlemen, introducing... he hails from Gainesville, Georgia... he weighed in this morning at two-hundred-and-sixteen pounds... he is the reigning, defending, TNA Heavyweight Champion of the World... ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles!

Styles holds up his title to a huge pop from the crowd, and Borash leaves the ring. AJ gives Earl Hebner his belt and Hebner holds it up in the air for all to see before handing it out of the ring so this main event match can get underway.

Match Eight
AJ Styles © vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle
TNA World Heavyweight Championship Three-Way Match


The bell rings and the three competitors in this main event match approach the centre of the ring, forming a triangle. AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle all look at each other as the anticipation builds amongst the crowd in the Ocean Center, and Angle and Hardy look at each other... before both attacking AJ Styles!To a mixed reaction, Angle and Hardy, who were opponents six days ago, seemingly form a temporary alliance to take the defending TNA World Heavyweight Champion out of the equation and they force Styles into the corner. Angle and Hardy both hit him with blows to the face and stomps to the mid-section, but AJ tries to fight back, hitting both Jeff and Kurt with right hands before escaping from the corner. Styles rebounds off the ropes and runs towards Angle, but Kurt takes him down with a Clothesline. AJ gets back up and walks into Hardy, who hits him with some right hands before Irish whipping him into Angle who lifts Styles up and plants him with a Scoop Slam. Jeff and Kurt then walk towards each other and have a nose-to-nose staredown, exchanging words and it looks like they’re going to go at it but AJ gets back up and attacks Hardy from behind, knocking him down in the process.

Styles relentlessly stomps away at Hardy’s mid-section until Angle walks over and hits AJ with a European Uppercut which sends ‘The Phenomenal One’ into the ropes. Kurt then steps back before running up and Clotheslining Styles over the top rope and out of the ring, sending him crashing down to the concrete floor! Hardy gets back to his feet and sees Angle standing there, and they fixate their eyes on each other before locking up. Kurt gets Jeff in a standing headlock and keeps him in it for a few moments until Hardy pushes Angle away into the ropes and Styles grabs Kurt’s legs, pulling him out of the ring. Angle lands on his feet, but receives a knife-edge Chop to the chest from Styles, followed by a few more. Angle and Styles continue to fight on the outside, but meanwhile Hardy rebounds off the ropes and runs across the ring, flying through the ropes and taking out both Angle and Styles with a high-risk Suicide Dive! The three competitors all lie on the floor outside the ring as the fans go wild, chanting ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ and we then see a replay of Hardy’s Suicide Dive.

After a few moments, Angle, Hardy and Styles all re-enter the ring and AJ hits Jeff with a forearm to the head, then giving Angle one too before running off the ropes but Angle and Hardy both kick Styles in the mid-section. They both apply a front facelock to AJ, before hitting the TNA World Heavyweight Champion with a Double Suplex! Hardy makes the cover, One! Angle pulls Jeff off of him. ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ gets to his feet as Kurt makes the cover now: One! Just like Angle did, Hardy pulls Kurt away. Angle gets back up and they begin to trade right hands, Hardy gaining the upper hand in the exchange and he Irish whips Angle into the corner of the ring. Jeff then runs towards him but Kurt boots Hardy in the face, and when Hardy staggers backwards and turns around, Styles, who is back up, nails Jeff with a picture-perfect Dropkick! AJ springs back up and slaps his hand against his chest, and Angle then runs at him but Styles leap-frogs Kurt and when Angle turns around AJ jumps up, and hits ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ with a Hurricanrana!

AJ is showing exactly why he has been the top dog in TNA for eight months and he gets to his feet, momentarily the only man standing in the ring until Hardy gets back to his feet and Styles goes for a Discus Clothesline but Jeff ducks it and then hits AJ with a Sit-Out Jawbreaker! Hardy gets back up and holds AJ’s legs out wide, then hitting a Double Leg Drop to Styles’ mid-section. Jeff gets back up and sees Angle getting to his feet, grabbing him by his singlet and throwing Kurt through the ropes out of the ring. Hardy turns back to Styles and gets him to his feet, Irish whipping AJ into the corner of the ring. Jeff hits Styles with right hands and stomps until AJ sinks down to a seated position in the corner and Hardy takes a few steps back before running back and holding onto the ropes, hitting Styles with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Jeff then drags AJ by his legs into the middle of the ring to make the cover: One! Two! Styles kicks out. Hardy gets back up and sees Angle standing on the ring apron. Jeff runs at him but Kurt stops him in his tracks with a Thrust to the mid-section before re-entering the ring.

Hardy recovers and runs at Angle again, but Kurt kicks Jeff in the mid-section and throws Hardy shoulder-first into the corner of the ring, going right into the steel ring-post! Jeff falls to the canvas and now Styles is up on his feet. Angle walks towards him and pushes him back into the corner of the ring before lifting him to the top rope. Kurt climbs up there and gets Styles in a front facelock, in position for a Superplex, but Hardy is now on his feet and he runs towards them. With Angle still holding onto Styles in the front facelock, Jeff lifts Kurt up and hits him with a Powerbomb as at the same time AJ is hit with a Superplex, as the Tower of Doom connects! All three competitors are now down again and Styles rolls over towards the edge of the ring as we see a replay of that Tower of Doom. Moments later, Angle and Hardy get to their feet and exchange right hands for a while until Kurt kicks Jeff in the mid-section and then moves behind him. Angle wraps his arms around Hardy’s waist and tries to go for a German Suplex but Jeff fights out of the predicament with a few back elbows to Kurt’s head.

Angle soon recovers and runs at Hardy but Jeff hits ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ with a Back Body Drop! ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ is now in control of the match and as Styles gets back to his feet Jeff Irish whips him into the corner. Hardy hits AJ with a few right hands to the face and Chops to the chest before walking towards the other corner and getting Angle up, giving him some Chops too before Irish whipping Kurt across the ring into Styles, but the TNA World Heavyweight Champion moves out of the way as Angle goes into the corner. AJ, having dodged that bullet, runs at Hardy but Jeff kicks Styles in the mid-section, gets him in a front facelock, lifts him up and hits AJ with a Sitout Inverted Suplex Slam! Jeff turns Styles over onto his back and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Angle breaks it up. Kurt gets Hardy up and unloads on him with some right hands, Irish whipping him into the ropes and knocking Jeff down with a Clothesline, Hardy landing in an uncomfortable-looking position on his neck on the mat.

Angle then gets Styles to his feet and moves behind him, wrapping his arms around AJ’s waist and hitting him with a German Suplex! One down, two to go as Kurt gets Styles back up moments later, and hits another German Suplex! The last one takes a while to come, but eventually Angle gets AJ up to his feet again, and connects with a third and final German Suplex! Kurt finally lets go and then makes the cover, One! Two! Hardy breaks up the pinfall. Jeff gets Angle up to his feet, and hits Kurt with a few right hands before rebounding off the ropes behind him and running directly towards ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ like a freight train, but out of no where Angle nails Hardy with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex! Kurt then covers Jeff, One! Two! Hardy gets the shoulder up! Angle gets back to his feet and gets Jeff up, throwing him through the ropes and out of the ring. Kurt follows, leaving the ring and getting Hardy up to hit him with some right hands, but meanwhile Styles is back up in the ring. As Angle and Hardy trade blows outside the ring, Styles jumps onto the ropes and flies through the air, hitting Angle and Hardy with a SPRINGBOARD SHOOTING STAR PRESS!

The crowd in the Ocean Center go wild, chanting both ‘TNA!’ and ‘Holy sh*t!’ as Angle, Hardy and Styles all lie on the floor but AJ is back up and when he is up he throws his arms out, shouting ‘Who’s the best wrestler in the world?!’ to which many reply ‘You!’ Styles gets Hardy up and throws him back in the ring, re-entering the squared circle himself and making the cover: One! Two! Jeff kicks out! AJ gets back up and gets Hardy to his feet, then walking towards the ropes. Styles jumps onto the ropes and flies backwards, hitting Jeff with a Springboard Moonsault floated over into an Inverted DDT! AJ gets back up and pounds his fist against his chest, getting himself and the crowd fired up, but Kurt Angle then re-enters the ring and when Styles turns around, Angle grabs him and hits AJ with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex much like he did to Hardy not long before! Kurt gets back up and lets out a reverberating roar, then shouting ‘Yeah!’ before removing the straps from his singlet (We all know what that means, right?) and waiting for Hardy to get to his feet.

Jeff slowly gets back to his feet and Angle, standing behind him, picks Hardy up and goes for the Angle Slam... but Jeff lands on his feet behind Angle. Kurt turns around and Hardy then goes for his finisher, the Twist Of Fate, but Angle gets out of that and then takes Hardy down with a leg sweep, before turning him over and applying the Ankle Lock! The crowd go wild and Kurt tries to apply as much pressure as possible onto Hardy’s ankle, but Jeff rolls forward and sends Angle staggering forward into the corner, going face-first into the middle turnbuckle. Hardy gets back to his feet, as does Styles, and when Jeff turns around AJ goes for a kick to the mid-section only for ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ to catch his foot, but with his other leg Styles nails Hardy with an Enzuigiri! AJ then goes for the cover, One! Two! Hardy gets the shoulder up. ‘The Phenomenal One’ then gets to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron, waiting for Hardy to get up. When Jeff gets up, Styles jumps onto the ropes and flies through the air, nailing Hardy with a Springboard Flying Forearm Smash to the back of the head!

AJ gets back to his feet, starting to grow tired, and he climbs to the top rope, perhaps looking to go for the Spiral Tap, but before he can do anything Angle gets back up and runs across the ring, jumping to the top rope and hitting Styles with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex from the top rope with AJ landing on top of Hardy! The crowd chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ but seeing as Styles landed on top of Jeff, the count is made by the referee Earl Hebner! One! Two! Three-NO! Hardy gets the shoulder up! Boy, would that have been a way to end this Three-Way Match with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Several moments later, Angle and Styles get back to their feet and exchange blows, Kurt gaining the upper hand in the exchange and he runs off the ropes, going for a Clothesline but AJ ducks it, and then nails Angle with the Pelť Kick! Moments later, Styles gets to his feet and slowly climbs to the top rope, hitting Angle with the Spiral Tap! After a Pelť Kick and a Spiral Tap in succession, this match could now be over as ‘The Phenomenal One’ crawls across the mat and pins Angle, One! Two! Three- NO! Hardy recovers and breaks up the count at the last second!

Styles was literally a split-second away from pinning Kurt Angle and retaining the TNA World Heavyweight Championship there, only for Hardy to intervene. AJ and Hardy get back to their feet and Styles hits Jeff with some right hands, then Irish whipping ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ forward into the corner of the ring, but Hardy runs up the turnbuckles and flies from the top rope, taking Styles out with the Whisper In The Wind! Jeff then makes the cover, do we have a new World Champion? One! Two! AJ gets the shoulder up! Hardy slowly sits up, revealing a look of disappointment on his face and he then gets to his feet, waiting for Styles to get to his feet. AJ gets back up, but before Hardy can do anything Angle gets back up and attacks Jeff from behind, knocking him down to the mat. Kurt gets Hardy right back up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, unloading on Jeff with right hands but when Angle takes a step back Styles Dropkicks Kurt forward into Hardy. AJ gets back up and backs into the opposite corner, before running across the ring and flying through the air, hitting both Angle and Hardy with a Splash!

Angle falls on his back down to the mat and Jeff stays in the corner until Styles lifts him up to the top rope, then climbing up there himself. AJ jumps up and wraps his legs around Jeff’s head, before sending Hardy flying off the top rope and onto Angle with a Hurricanrana! With Hardy and Angle on top of each other, Styles then hits a Frog Splash from the top rope onto both Angle and Hardy! The crowd go wild and all three competitors lie on the mat for several moments, Hardy still on top of Angle, until AJ crawls across the ring and pulls Jeff off of Angle, then covering Kurt, One! Two! Three- NO! Angle kicks out! Styles once again comes within a split-second of retaining his title but Angle survives and AJ slowly gets to his feet... before locking Angle in his own submission hold, the Ankle Lock! There is a strong mixed reaction in the Ocean Center, with the Styles fans cheering and the Angle fans booing, as ‘The Phenomenal One’ looks to humiliate Angle by making him tap out to his own hold. Styles keeps it locked in for several moments, even falling back and grapevining Angle’s leg, and it looks like Angle might tap out... but Hardy gets back up and hits AJ with a Leg Drop, breaking up the submission hold!

Jeff gets back up moments later and stomps away at Styles, forcing him into the corner of the ring before getting Angle up and getting him in position for the Twist Of Fate, but Kurt makes sure it doesn’t happen with a knee to Jeff’s mid-section and then hits Hardy with an Exploder Suplex! Angle slowly gets to his feet and regains his breath, but at the same time waits for Jeff to get back up. Several moments later, Hardy gets up and walks backwards... into an Angle Slam! Angle Slam! Angle hits it! However, Angle lies on the mat next to Jeff, still exhausted from this match, and almost a dozen seconds later Kurt finally makes the cover, are we going to crown a new World Champion here? One! Two! Three- NO! Hardy somehow gets the shoulder up! Angle cannot believe it, that is obvious from the look on his face and ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ slowly gets to his feet... then applying the Ankle Lock to Jeff Hardy!

After an Angle Slam, Hardy HAS to tap out now, it would be near impossible to survive this, and it looks like we are on the verge of crowning a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion when Angle falls back and grapevines Hardy’s leg. Jeff writhes in pain and desperately tries to escape, reaching his arms out but the ropes are out of reach. As Styles slowly gets back to his feet, Hardy must have no other choice but to tap out... but Styles climbs out onto the ring apron, jumps onto the ropes, springboards off of them... 450 Splash! 450 Splash! AJ hits Angle with the 450 Splash! Angle is down and out now and Hardy, most likely in too much pain and exhaustion to care what saved him from the Ankle Lock, holds his ankle as Styles slowly hooks Angle’s legs and makes the cover, it HAS to be over now, it MUST be over now... One! Two! Three!

AJ Styles def. Jeff Hardy & Kurt Angle to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at 19:03

Jeremy Borash: Here is your winner, and STILL the TNA Heavyweight Champion of the World... ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles!

“Get Ready To Fly” hits to a big pop from the crowd and AJ Styles lets go of Kurt Angle’s legs, rolling away and struggling to his feet with assistance from the ropes. Styles has his hand raised by the referee Earl Hebner and is handed his TNA World Heavyweight Championship, dropping to his knees and holding it up in the air as a celebration pyro explodes from the stage and pyro rain falls from the ceiling. AJ gets back to his feet and leans forward against the ropes, saying to the camera ‘I’m still the Champ’ before leaving the ring and high-fiving several fans as he walks up the ramp. Styles stops on the stage and turns around, holding up his title one more time before leaving, providing the closing image of this pay per view.

Mike Tenay: He did it! The odds were strongly against him, but AJ Styles has shown the world once again just why he is ‘The Phenomenal One’ by defeating Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

Mick Foley: Can you say match of the year, Professor?

Mike Tenay: That match will sure take a lot of beating, Mick! Thank you for joining us for TNA Sacrifice, and we’ll see you this Thursday on Impact! Goodnight, everybody!

Impact Feedback


The video package was good, hyping the only thing that really matters at this point, the tournament final to see who faces Styles. By the way, I donít know if Iíve mentioned this before, but determining the number one contender less than a week before the PPV is a bad idea. The match at Sacrifice, no matter who it involves is going to lack so much build.

Opening the show with Jeff Jarrett? Not exactly what I expected, however after reading the promo it made a lot of sense, as Jarrett was yet to have a match for Sacrifice. Despite one or two little typos that I spotted throughout, Jarrett was pretty good here, talking about why he wants to face Anderson and what not. The character I think you probably write the best in this thread is Mr. Anderson, and you continued it here, capturing his arrogance nicely. A thing I didnít like though was during one of his blocks of dialogue, there was no comma for a long time, and it just made it annoying to read. What does Jarrett mean by saying Andersonís sense is to far up his own ass? Is that an English thing, because Iíve never heard of it? If it is, you should keep English mannerisms out of your promos, unless youíre writing an English guy. The brawl with Anderson getting the upper hand was okay, adding more heat to the fire before Sacrifice.

Umm, Daffney against Wilde is match number one, not match number two. A bit of a silly/lazy mistake to make really. Iím not a huge fan of women matches opening shows, simply because the action usually isnít that great, and unless a terrific promo is going to follow a squash, I like an entertaining match to get the in ring action underway. I was glad you kept the match rather short, as it wouldnít have been much to watch. It was a decent win for your champion in Wilde nonetheless; however it was pretty disappointing not to see Tara at all.

Hogan and Popeís meeting was used to put over their tag match tonight, and their match at Sacrifice, although the one thing you didnít put over, which I think needed to be, was The Popeís anger. After the initial ďyouíre not punishing RhynoĒ, which is rather bitchy for a face, The Pope just seemed like he wasnít angry at all. I understand Hogan is trying to keep things under control, thatís all good, but Pope saying he understands and not having a go at Hogan is a little weird. The guyís dad got beaten down for crying out loud. The jail line was good, but it isnít going to mean anything if he goes out there tonight and doesnít do anything vicious.

The tag team match was okay, although once again, I really feel as if you failed to capitalize on the good situation which you created last week. Despite the start, where The Pope was annoyed that Rhino started on the apron, there was absolutely no mention of the animosity between the two, until the end. The bit where Pope did follow Rhino to the outside, not caring about the match was good, and it was even better to have Rhino get the upper hand, makes him look really good ahead of what will probably be another loss. By the way, Iíve no idea why Hernandez didnít get involved when Rhino took The Pope to the outside, itís almost like you forgot about him which is definitely not good. The match provided good hype for the Global Championship match thought, whilst there was no real mention of Morgan/Hernandez group feud which is disappointing.

Sacrifice has already been posted. , Iíll get to it sometime within the year.

Short and sharp Christopher Daniels interview was good. It showed how pissed off he was about not having his title, which he should still have. A little shocked that he didnít mention anything about the pay per view though, it probably means he will interfere in Kazarianís match tonight.

A good contest here between Kazarian and Kendrick, and I was glad you made Kendrick look competitive, even though he was never really going to win the match. Six minutes is rather short, so it would have been nice to see them go at it a bit longer, but thatís not a big issue, seeing as a majority of TNAís matches are short like this anyway. I was really surprised and disappointed that Daniels didnít make an appearance, because that little interview he had, plus Kazarian saying heís going to be the new champ after his win really isnít enough build for their title match on a go home show before a pay per view.

Kurt Angleís interview was pretty good, being his usual intense self. My only issue was there were some more errors, for example when you meant to write ďpack their bagsĒ, you wrote ďpack their backsĒ.

I donít really like the interviews where they are not looking at the camera, mainly because you can barely hear what the person is saying half the time, but I guess in BTB it is okay. Lethal was alright here, showing his respect for Van Dam and what not.

The eight man tag match was pretty good, simply for the fact that it continues what has been happening in the tag division lately by the three teams. Generation ME also get a fair rub, being allowed to hang with some top tag team talent, but they were always going to take the fall in this one. Nash getting the victory for his team was a bit of a shock, but I donít mind it, as I was just happy that you didnít have him in the actual ring for long, I really do commend you for that, as he can barely move these days. MCMG/Beer Money continued their feud to, so like I said, absolutely nothing wrong with this.

Nash was pretty spot on, and having him and Young ready to get rid of the briefcases is good, as I feel they will just hold you down later on in the thread. With that being said, I donít like the fact that another match has been made/changed, because itís going to be over shadowed by the other matches announced tonight.

, Wolfeís owning of Foley on commentary was brilliant.

Van Dam/Lethal was another competitive match. Iím very pleased to see Lethal hang with Van Dam, who is one of the best in this thread, so hopefully that means Lethal will be getting some sort of decent push. Even with all the terrific action, and fun reversals in this match, I didnít like how you were just writing the match, and then jumped to the end. I understand itís a weekly show, but even if you just gave us a two lined description as to how we got to the ending sequence would have been nice, rather than just jumping straight there. Anyway, both guys come out of this one looking good, and Van Dam scaring Wolfe away afterward was nice too, squeezing in the final bit of hype for their match at the PPV.

The commentary running down the line up to Sacrifice was nice. It also reminded me of how bad it is to not have your championship match announced yet.

Hardy/Angle was the main event and it certainly delivered. You gave the match a lot of attention, and it was probably the best of the night, as it wasnít too spotty, unlike RVD/Lethal. The count out finish was a bit of a letdown, although it made sense in the long term when Hogan announced the triple threat match for the PPV. Once again, Styles barely got used on this show, which is extremely disappointing, although the little brawl between all three was nice with Angle left standing, which usually means he probably wonít win.

All in all, it was an okay show; however I donít think it delivered for a go home show. There was a lack of build for the Morgan/Hernandez tag match, Pope/Rhino could have been done much better tonight, and Tara, who is supposed to be facing the Knockouts champion couldnít even get on the show. Not only that, but Styles was barely used again, which is not considering he is your champion. Honestly, Sacrifice is going to have to be written extremely well, because Anderson/Jarrett has been on and off, and all of a sudden itís announced, whilst the TNA triple threat has had pretty much no build at all. A disappointing go home show, but hopefully you make it up with Sacrifice.

BTW, donít stress, as I said earlier, Iíll get to Sacrifice at a later date.

Quote:
TNA Newswire - Monday, May 17

~ TNA officials are said to be happy with how Sacrifice went. According to an insider, they are pleased with the latter matches on the card, them being Jeff Jarrett vs. Mr. Anderson, Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Van Dam and the Three-Way Main Event. They are also very happy with the X Division Championship match which Christopher Daniels won, but it is not known where Kazarian goes from here. As for Daniels, it isn't clear as to who he could possibly be facing at Slammiversary but with Shane Helms about to come into the company according to several sources, he could be thrown into the mix. Samoa Joe was slated to participate in the 2010 World X Cup which takes place after Slammiversary, but plans have allegedly changed. The expected participants for Team TNA are Daniels, Kazarian, Amazing Red and Jay Lethal.

~ The choice to have Desmond Wolfe go over Rob Van Dam was apparently a last-minute decision so that their rivalry could continue up to Slammiversary. Van Dam was rumoured to be in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary but that most likely won't be happening now. Wolfe's valet, Chelsea, has been given more spotlight recently to get her some heat seeing as she has been ineffective at Wolfe's side up until now.

~ Plus, Beer Money could be breaking up soon, after signs of it appeared at Sacrifice when Robert Roode was pinned and James Storm berated him. Should this happen, Storm will probably be the heel with Roode being the face and a feud between the two is inevitable if they disband.

~ There are rumours that Sting is about to retire, possibly at Slammiversary. Sting has not won a match since a Tag Team contest when he teamed with his then-rival Mr. Anderson to defeat AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy over a month, and a Retirement Match could be on the cards. Alternatively, he could announce his retirement beforehand but it is not known what way it will go if this does happen.

~ Tapings for the next three episodes of Impact are going to take place tonight, tomorrow and on Wednesday. The last Impact before Slammiversary could be live, and if it is then an announcement should be made soon.

~ Here is the touring schedule for TNA house shows in June:

4th - Kaiser Convention Center - Oakland, California
5th - Sacramento Convention Center - Sacramento, California
6th - UCSB Events Center - Santa Barbara, California
17th - Oregon State Fairgrounds Pavilion - Salem, Oregon
18th - Viking Hall - Bristol, Tennessee
19th - Oman Arena - Jackson, Tennessee
25th - Lone Star Expo Center - Conroe, Texas
26th - Cedar Park Events Center - Cedar, Texas
BTW, starting with the first House Show in June I'm going to start doing house show reports to add something more to the thread. Preview to come soon.

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

Said I'd review, and here it is. But before we start, a woohoo at me for winning the predictions.

So yeah, nice opening video. Quotes are always cool.

Good rundown of the card to kick things off.

Opening the show with is a fair choice. Not expecting miracles here, but it should be a solid opener. Homicide doing most of the work/selling for his team was a smart choice. at ďPut me down! Put me down, you buffoon!Ē. I have an issue with the way the match ended. I really didn't understand why at this stage of the match Magnus was offering Hernandez a free shot at him. I also didn't get why Morgan didn't break up the three count. I mean, he tagged out and then kinda disappeared. A brief description of Terry/Homicide picking a fight with Morgan/Williams on the outside to explain what happened to the other four men would've been nice.

lol at Rhino no sellin' Christy.

The action throughout the knockouts match was good enough. Interesting way to end things with Daffney grabbing the ropes. That, and the post match attack makes me think this feud isn't done yet. I still think Tara will take the gold eventually.

Short and sweet between Nash/Young and Bisch/Hogan. Not sure at all about this line... "Alright, but if you go out there and Leg Drop somebodyís ass, then youíll have a lot of questions." There's a word missing somewhere I think. Is it Hogan who will want to ask questions? Or will he have questions to answer? Am I really dense and not reading this right at all?

Oh noez! Beer Money breaking up? That would be sad times. While I'd usually not be impressed with the decision to eliminate BMI first, the fact it looks like you're going somewhere with it make it a smart booking decision. Nice to see the ending of this tag match explained what happened to the other guys in the match at the finish. MCMG were always gonna win this match.

Good long contest between Kaz/Daniels. Always good to see the X-Division given enough time to shine on PPV. I'm surprised it was such a clean victory tbh. I was sure something would go down here. One slight worry is that fact you went back to the grabbing the ropes during the pinfall spot from the Knockouts match and used it again here, only this time it was spotted. Not so sure about going there twice. Apart from that, good match with some nice spots throughout.

Bit of a typo in the Angle promo. "...Iím sick and tired of being telling me that I lost..."

Liked the aggressive nature to the start of Pope/Rhino. It demonstrated the anger of Pope, which you needed to establish early doors due to the personal nature of the feud. I'm not gonna lie, I'm never a fan of falls count anywhere matches that end in the ring. The stipulation is there to be used imo. But yeah, the action during the match was good. This proved to be a very solid mid card match.

Slammy in full amirite? Should be good.

Another solid mid card match here. I'm struggling to picture Anderson catching Jarrett across his shoulders off the crossbody. I can't see how that would work tbh. Perhaps saying Anderson caught Jarrett and then quickly forced him up onto his shoulders would've been better? Right man won with the low blow into the Mic Drop a nice way to end it. The beatdown afterwards was brutal, but exactly what Anderson needed to show off his aggression and push him to the next level. Really good job throughout with this as Anderson left looking great, which he needed to.

RVD/Wolfe was another good contest, and I was pleasantly surprised to see Wolfe win. I thought in my predictions you would go for the 'safe' option and have RVD win, but I'm more than happy to be wrong here. But again I have a few issues. I really didn't like the low blow followed by the finisher ending for the second match in a row. You could've gotten a bit more creative if you were set on a dirty finish. I also wasn't sold on RVD lifting Chelsea into the ring. Surely his best chance of victory was to have her as far away as possible. Again, the action throughout was good, but I wasn't a fan of the ending sequence here. Pleased with the winner though.

And now the main event. It delivered on action, with some real nice spots involved. Especially liked the belly-to-belly from the top with AJ landing on Jeff. I'm glad you got the finish to the main event spot on. I loved the idea of AJ the 450 while Angle was in the grapevine, and the way you pointed out Jeff was in too much pain to do anything about it got the point across. Really nice way to finish things, giving AJ a credible win.

Overall, a really solid pay per view. Wasn't perfect (no such thing really) but it was a good show. Can't help but think it was a kinda build up PPV for Slammiversary though, as a lot of moves were made in regards to guys positions on the card. The elevation of Anderson and Wolfe were highlights for me. Solid effort man.
