UPDATE: Progress on the pay per view has been OK so far. I'm close to doing everything so that I only need to write the matches, but that will take a while. With that said, my estimate for it being up is the end of February at the very latest. Depends on how much time I have to write the matches. Could be a lot earlier than the end of February, who knows.

Anyway, some quick news and notes...

These departures have hit ROH hard, but TNA are reportedly fine with all of them working for ROH at events that will not be televised or be shown on iPPV. Petey Williams has also apparently re-signed with TNA.

~ Speaking of iPPV, there have been rumblings that TNA could be interested in having their pay per views broadcast on the Internet as opposed to on television. Solid pay per view buyrates have always been a problem in the company but if TNA were to adopt the approach, it wouldn't be without a test run first to see how they would do in terms of buys when aired exclusively on the internet.

~ The latest edition of iMPACT!, which aired on July 8, got a 1.4 rating.

~ A prominent former name has reportedly re-signed with TNA after a lengthy absence, with an initial three-month contract, and it isn't Petey Williams, who has already been mentioned.

UPDATE 2: I've just started the 7th match on the card, so it's two more to go and then Victory Road will be done so I can put it up. By my estimations, it could be done by mid-week.

More predictions are, of course, welcome.

TNA Victory Road
Toledo Sports Arena, Toledo, Ohio
July 11, 2010

*OPENING VIDEO*

*PYRO*

Mike Tenay: You're looking at the Toledo Sports Arena in Toledo, Ohio, where Victory Road takes place tonight live on pay per view! I'm 'The Professor' Mike Tenay alongside 'The Hardcore Legend' Mick Foley, we're ready for a huge show tonight in Toledo headlined by Mr. Anderson defending the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles and Desmond Wolfe facing Rob Van Dam in a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match!

Mick Foley: This is a monumental night in the history of TNA, Mike, we could see a new Champion or we could see Fortune strengthen their grip on this company, but we do know for sure that a TNA career will end tonight, right here at Victory Road!

Mike Tenay: And ladies and gentlemen, we can confirm that the match between Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam will be our main event tonight!

Mick Foley: It's great news, Mike, this rivalry has been going on for five months now and its climax comes tonight in the main event!

Mike Tenay: Also tonight in Toledo, James Storm and Robert Roode, former tag team partners, square off in a Street Fight where blood will inevitably be shed and careers will be shortened.

Mick Foley: I couldn't have put it better myself, Professor, it's gonna be violent. Both of these men want to tear each other apart, and there's no doubt in my mind that they will. Fortune could also add the TNA Global Championship to their collection, if the seven-foot, three-hundred-and-thirty-pound behemoth 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan can defeat 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero.

Mike Tenay: Plus, the 2010 World X Cup comes to an end with a Gauntlet Match involving the members of all four teams involved in the tournament; Team International, Team Japan, Team Mexico and Team TNA and The Motor City Machine Guns defend the TNA World Tag Team Championships against The British Invasion.

Mick Foley: And as well as that, Daffney puts the TNA Knockouts Championship on the line against Angelina Love and Generation Me, The Latin American Exchange, Shane Helms and Shannon Moore and Team 3D clash in a Four-Way Elimination Tag Team Match with the winners earning a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championships next month on August 8 at Hard Justice.

Mike Tenay: And that match will take place... right now! Let's hand you over to Jeremy Borash in the ring. Take it away, JB!

The camera cuts to a birdseye view of the ring, which has blue ropes and a TNA logo on the white canvas , a different look to the TNA ring we normally see. We then cut to Borash, who is standing in the middle of the ring with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for the opening contest of Victory Road, live on pay per view from Toledo, Ohio!

Cheap pop from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: This will be a Four-Way Elimination Tag Team Match, with the winners earning a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championships next month at Hard Justice!

*WATCH OUT, WATCH OUT*

Team 3D make their way out, getting heat from the crowd. Brother Ray and Brother Devon both pose on the stage before walking down the ramp and entering the ring, approaching the corner.

Jeremy Borash: Introducing first, both hailing from New York City, at a combined weight of 560 pounds... Brother Ray and Brother Devon, Team 3D!

*NIGHTMARE*

Shane Helms and Shannon Moore are the next duo out to a lukewarm reaction, immediately making their way down the ramp and into the ring.

Jeremy Borash: At a combined weight of 417 pounds... the team of Shane Helms and Shannon Moore!

*MY GENERATION*

Generation Me walk out to cheers from the crowd, Max and Jeremy Buck posing side-by-side on the stage before jogging down the ramp and simultaneously sliding under the ropes into the ring.

Jeremy Borash: Both hailing from Montebello, California, at a combined weight of 350 pounds... Max and Jeremy Buck, Generation Me!

*TO LIVE AND DIE IN LAX*

The Latin American Exchange emerge from behind the curtain, getting a big pop from the crowd. Hernandez and Homicide walk down the ramp, Homicide making the LAX hand gesture at the camera, and enter the ring, as Hernandez climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses before climbing back down and walking into the corner with Homicide.

Jeremy Borash: At a combined weight of 490 pounds... Hernandez and Homicide, The Latin American Exchange!

Match One
Generation Me vs. The Latin American Exchange vs. Shane Helms & Shannon Moore vs. Team 3D
TNA World Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders' Four-Way Tag Team Elimination Match

Max Buck and Shane Helms enter the ring to kick off this opening contest at Victory Road, as the other six competitors involved in this Four-Way Elimination Tag Team Match stand on the ring apron. Buck and Helms lock up, and Shane gets Max in a standing headlock but he is able to slip out of it. Buck then grabs Helm's arm and wrenches it around, but Shane breaks out of it by rolling across the mat, nipping up to his feet and moving behind Max, getting him in another headlock. Buck pushes Helms away into the ropes and Max lays on the mat for Shane to jump over him, which he does, and he then runs off the ropes. Max nips up to his feet, but as soon as he does Helms floors him with a Shoulder Block. Buck gets up again and Shane Irish whips him into the ropes again, looking to go for a Back Body Drop, but Max comes back off the ropes again and slides through Helms' legs, then immediately rolling up Shane with a Schoolboy! One! Kick out from Helms, no surprise there. Both competitors get back to their feet and Helms takes Max down with a drop toe hold, before getting back up and going for an Elbow Drop to the back of the neck but Buck moves out of the way and Shane misses the Elbow Drop, landing in a seated position.

Max quickly runs off the ropes and hits Helms with a stiff-looking running kick to the sternum, before making the cover again: One! Two! Helms kicks out on two. Max gets back up and gets Helms back to a vertical base, before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring where Max's tag team partner, his brother Jeremy, is stood. Jeremy holds Shane in place as Max runs up and hits Helms with a running knee to the mid-section, before he tags Jeremy in who jumps over the ropes and into the ring. Max holds Shane up as Jeremy hits him with repeated Chops to the chest until the referee Jackson James forces Max to leave the ring. Jeremy then takes over, taking Helms down to the mat with a Snapmare. Buck then wraps his legs around Shane's mid-section, applying a Bodyscissors. Jeremy keeps Helms grounded on the canvas for several moments, until Buck decides to sit up and tries to hit Shane with some blows but Helms catches Jeremy's hand and pulls him forward. Shane hits Jeremy with a back elbow to the face and is then able to escape from the Bodyscissors, getting to a vertical base.

Jeremy also gets back up and Helms hits him with a right hand so powerful that Buck coincidentally staggers backwards into the corner where Shane's partner Shannon Moore is stood. Helms approaches the corner and tags Moore in, who enters the ring and he and Helms both take turns at hitting Jeremy with stomps, until he sinks down to a seated position in the corner and Shane then climbs out onto the ring apron. Moore drives his boot into Buck's throat, applying as much pressure as possible, until the referee Jackson James forces him to back away. Jeremy then gets to his feet and Shannon runs towards him, but Buck hits him with a kick to the face which sends Moore backpedalling into the middle of the ring. Jeremy then runs towards him and Shannon lifts him, looking to go for a Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker, but Buck counters with a Tilt-a-Whirl Headscissors Takedown! Moore is sent into the corner of the ring near Team 3D and Brother Devon slaps Moore on the shoulder, tagging himself into the match. Devon slowly enters the ring and approaches Jeremy, the two of them having a staredown in the middle of the squared circle, until Buck breaks the ice between them by hitting Devon with a right hand.

Jeremy hits him with some more blows before running off the ropes, but Devon flattens Buck with a Big Boot to the face! Devon looks down at Jeremy with a grin on his face before dropping to his knees and making the cover: One! Two! Kick out on two from Buck. Devon gets back up and gets Jeremy to a vertical base by pulling him up by his hair, not a conventional way but it does cause Buck some pain. Devon knees Jeremy in the mid-section, before throwing Buck shoulder-first into the steel ring post in the corner of the ring! Devon pulls him back, but Homicide then tags himself in by slapping Devon on the shoulder. Homicide enters the ring and grabs Jeremy, Devon looking confused until the referee informs him he isn't the legal man. Instead of leaving, Devon hits Homicide with a blow to the back which knocks him down to the mat, but then Homicide's tag team partner Hernandez enters the ring and throws Devon over the top rope and out of the ring! Hernandez then returns to his corner and Jeremy takes advantage of Devon's work, hitting Homicide with some stomps to the back.

Buck gets Homicide back up and hits him with some forearms to the face before running off the ropes, but Homicide stops him with a kick to the mid-section.Homicide then gets Jeremy in a front facelock and lifts him up into the air, not hitting a Suplex but instead dropping Buck on his chest directly onto the ropes! Jeremy lands on the ring apron and manages to hold onto the ropes, but not for long as Homicide sends Buck off the ring apron and down to the concrete floor on the outside with a Dropkick! Homicide then tags his partner Hernandez into the match for the first time and Hernandez enters the ring, waiting for Jeremy to get back to his feet. When Buck gets back to a vertical base, Hernandez runs off the ropes and charges across the ring, flying over the top rope and taking out Jeremy with the Superman Dive! The crowd cheer and chant 'TNA! TNA! TNA!' like they always do as Hernandez and Buck both lie on the concrete floor and remain there for a while. The referee starts the count: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! Hernandez and Jeremy begin to slowly get back up. Seven! Eight! Hernandez gets back in the ring. Nine! Buck manages to get back in as well.

Both competitors then get back to their feet and Hernandez hits Jeremy with a European Uppercut, before Irish whipping him into the ropes. However, as Buck goes into the ropes Brother Ray makes the blind tag and when Jeremy comes back off them Hernandez lifts him up in a Gorilla Press before unceremoniously dropping him to the mat. Then, Ray enters the ring behind Hernandez and grabs 'Super Mex', hitting him with a Russian Leg Sweep before making the cover: One! Two! Hernandez gets the shoulder up. Ray gets back up and gets Hernandez up to a vertical base, kicking him in the mid-section before showing his strength by lifting him up and planting Hernandez on the mat with a Scoop Slam. The veteran Ray follows it up by running off the ropes and planting an Elbow Drop on Hernandez's sternum, before making another cover. One! Two! Hernandez gets the shoulder up again. A frustrated Ray gets up and confronts the referee Jackson James, saying to him 'What the hell are you doing, you little punk? Do your damn job, you understand me?' before turning his attention back to the task at hand.

Ray approaches Hernandez but receives some blows to the mid-section until Hernandez is able to get to his feet and Ray goes for a right hand but Hernandez catches his hand and hits him with a blow of his own. Ray staggers backwards and Hernandez runs forward, flooring Ray with a Clothesline. Ray gets back up and runs at Hernandez again, only to get another Clothesline. After getting up again, Ray runs towards him once again but Hernandez kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in position, and throws Ray across the ring with the Mexplex! The crowd cheer, impressed by Hernandez's strength, and he gets Ray back up, Irish whipping him into the corner where Homicide is stood. Hernandez lifts Ray to the top rope with Ray facing away from him and Hernandez then turns around, grabbing Ray's arms and lifting him up, before hitting Ray with the Border Toss! Hernandez makes the cover: One! Two! Three! Devon tries to break it up but he is too late, and Team 3D are the first team eliminated from this match!

Hernandez pins Brother Ray at 10:04 - Team 3D are eliminated

Brother Ray slowly rolls under the ropes and is helped to the back by his tag team partner Brother Devon, and Shane Helms enters the ring to take on Hernandez. Helms approaches Hernandez and hits him with a couple of Chops to the chest, Shane looking at him after every one of them with a defiant look on his face, but once he is done Hernandez grabs him by the throat with both of his hands. However, Helms manages to escape from his grasps by kicking him in the mid-section and Shane then hits him with some right hands before running off the ropes and going for a Cross Body, but Hernandez catches him in mid-air and then hits him with a Falling Powerslam! Hernandez hooks the legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Helms kicks out on two. Hernandez gets back to a vertical base and gets Shane up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. He walks towards him and lifts Helms up to the top rope, before climbing up there himself. Hernandez gets Shane in a front facelock, in position to hit a Superplex, but Helms fights back with some blows to the mid-section and with a right hand he manages to knock Hernandez off the top rope and down to the mat!

Shane regains his composure on top before waiting for Hernandez to get back up and when he gets to his feet, Helms flies from the top rope and hits Hernandez with a Missile Dropkick to the sternum! Shane then quickly crawls across the mat and hooks Hernandez's legs, making the cover: One! Two! Hernandez kicks out! Helms sits up with a look of disappointment on his face, briefly glancing at the referee before getting back to his feet. Shane waits for Hernandez to get back to a vertical base and when he does, Helms gets him in a Dragon Sleeper position and looks to go for the Nightmare on Helms Street, but Hernandez breaks out of it with some blows to Shane's head, and he manages to then stand up straight. Helms goes for a Clothesline, but Hernandez ducks it and lifts Shane up before planting him on the mat with a Back Suplex. Hernandez then gets back to his feet and approaches the corner, eagerly waiting for Helms to get back up. When he gets back to his feet, Hernandez charges across the ring towards him, but Helms moves out of the way and Hernandez goes directly into the corner, managing to stop himself before potentially crashing into the turnbuckles.

Jeremy Buck is on the other side of the ropes and he tags himself in, jumping over the ropes as Shane runs towards him and Jeremy hits him with a Dropkick! Buck quickly crawls across the canvas and covers Helms, One! Two! Helms kicks out on two. Jeremy gets back up and gets Shane to his feet, turning his back to him and hitting Helms with a heel kick to the mid-section before running off the ropes. Buck comes back off the ropes and goes for a Wheelbarrow Bulldog, but Helms counters it with a Bridging German Suplex! The cover is made straight away: One! Two! No! Jeremy gets his shoulder up off the mat on two-and-a-half! Shane then lets go of Buck and slowly gets to his feet, before approaching the corner of the ring and slowly climbing to the top rope. Helms waits for Jeremy to get back up and when he does, Helms jumps from the top rope going for a Cross Body but Buck counters it with a Dropkick in mid-air! Both competitors lie on the mat for several moments, the crowd cheering both of them on, and eventually they get back to their feet. Buck and Helms begin to trade blows, going back and forth until Shane breaks the cycle with a kick to the mid-section.

Helms then Irish whips him forward into the ropes and Jeremy stops by the ropes, inviting Shane to come towards him. He does, but runs into a kick to the mid-section from Buck who then jumps over the ropes onto the ring apron. Helms runs forward again but Jeremy leans through the ropes and drives his shoulder into Shane's mid-section, before slingshotting himself over the ropes and connecting with a Slingshot Sit-Out Facebuster on Helms! Buck turns him over and makes the cover, as Max Buck and Shannon Moore both enter the ring and Max manages to hold Moore from breaking up the pinfall: One! Two! Three! Shane Helms and Shannon Moore have been eliminated from the match!

Jeremy Buck pins Shane Helms at 15:21 - Shane Helms & Shannon Moore are eliminated

Shannon Moore helps Shane Helms out of the ring and the duo make their way back to the locker room, and it is now down to just two teams in this match: Generation Me and The Latin American Exchange. Homicide enters the ring and he and Jeremy have a staredown in the middle of the ring, until Homicide breaks the tension with a kick to Buck's mid-section. Homicide then hits Jeremy with some Chops to the chest, before Irish whipping him into the ropes. Homicide ducks down in preparation for a Back Body Drop, but Buck Sunset Flips over him and pulls him down to the mat by his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Three- no! Homicide kicks out just before the count of three! Jeremy almost pinned him out of no where just then, and the two competitors then get back to their feet. Buck wrenches Homicide's arm around and then pulls him in for a standing headlock, but Homicide quickly pushes Jeremy away into the ropes. He comes back off of them, and Homicide wraps his arms around Buck before throwing him across the ring with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex! Homicide quickly crawls across the canvas and hooks Jeremy's legs, making the cover: One! Two! Jeremy gets the shoulder up on two and a half!

Homicide gets back to a vertical base and Jeremy then begins to crawl towards the corner of the ring where his tag team partner and brother Max is stood. Homicide manages to catch him, grabbing Buck by his legs and pulling him back into the middle of the ring before locking Jeremy in a Boston Crab submission hold. Homicide keeps him in the hold for a considerable amount of time, Buck visibly in pain and writhing in agony. His brother Max spurs him on, clapping his hands together and getting the Toledo crowd going. Some chant 'Jeremy!' whereas some chant 'Homicide!', and Buck manages to crawl across the ring, continuing to do so until he finally makes it to the ropes! The Generation Me fans cheer and the Latin American Exchange fans boo, as the referee Jackson James tells Homicide to let go of the hold but 'The Notorious 187' replies 'I have 'till five, gringo!' The referee then begins the count and Homicide finally relinquishes the submission hold on four, but then drags Jeremy by his legs back into the middle of the ring as soon as he lets go of the ropes. However this time, Jeremy forces Homicide away with a kick to the face and then frantically crawls across the canvas towards the corner of the ring, finally tagging his brother Max back into the match!

Max jumps over the ropes into the ring and runs at Homicide, taking him down with a Clothesline. Homicide gets back up and runs at Buck but is hit with a Dropkick, and when Homicide gets up again Max lifts him up and plants him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Buck quickly runs off the ropes and hits Homicide with a Leg Drop before making the cover: One! Two! Homicide's tag team partner Hernandez enters the ring and breaks up the count. The referee Jackson James makes sure Hernandez gets back out of the ring and tells him not to come back in again, but meanwhile Homicide surprises Max with a Small Package pin! Hernandez turns the referee around and pushes him forward, the ref immediately making the cover: One! Two! No! Buck kicks out on two and a half! Homicide would have pinned him there if the referee wasn't busy with Hernandez and both competitors get back up, Max immediately regaining the upper hand with a forearm to the face. Buck Irish whips Homicide into the corner of the ring where Hernandez is stood and runs towards him, Hernandez tagging himself into the match just before Max successfully hits Homicide with a Running Clothesline.

Buck then stomps away at Homicide until he is in a seated position, Hernandez entering the ring behind Max who doesn't notice, and Hernandez turns him around, grabbing Buck by the throat and throwing him across the ring with the Crackerjack! Hernandez then backs into the corner of the ring and waits in anticipation for Max to get back up. When he gets back to a vertical base, Hernandez runs across the ring and nails Buck with the Mexican Boulder Shoulder! 'Super Mex' then knocks Jeremy off the ring apron and down on his back to the concrete floor with a Clothesline, before tagging back in Homicide who enters the ring, immediately gets Max up, moves behind him, lifts him up, and hits Buck with the Gringo Killa! Homicide then hooks Max's legs and makes the cover, with Jeremy incapable of breaking it up: One! Two! Three! It's over, The Latin American Exchange are now the #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championships!

The Latin American Exchange def. Generation Me, Shane Helms & Shannon Moore and Team 3D to become #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championships at 21:16

Jeremy Borash: Here are your winners and the new #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championships... Hernandez and Homicide, The Latin American Exchange!

Homicide gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Jackson James to cheers from the crowd. Hernandez enters the ring and embraces with his tag team partner, before they raise each other's hands and leave the ring, heading back to the locker room with a guaranteed shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championships next month at Hard Justice.

Mike Tenay: Yes! The Latin American Exchange pick up the victory thanks to the Gringo Killa from Homicide, and now LAX have a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championships next month on August 8 at Hard Justice!

Mick Foley: I said LAX would win, didn't I, Mike? Like I said before, they've been on a roll and now they have the chance to once again become TNA World Tag Team Champions at Hard Justice against either the reigning Champions The Motor City Machine Guns or their challengers later on tonight, The British Invasion!

*REPLAY OF GRINGO KILLA*

Mike Tenay: One of the best maneuvers in wrestling today, in my eyes.

Mick Foley: Just look at the way Jeremy Buck landed on his neck. Ouch!

The camera cuts to the ring, where Max helps his brother Jeremy to his feet and the two brothers leave the ring to a standing ovation from the Toledo crowd.

Mike Tenay: The crowd here giving Generation Me a standing ovation, and they definitely deserve it.

Mick Foley: They certainly do, Professor. They outlasted two great tag teams in Shane Helms and Shannon Moore and Team 3D, and they came close to outlasting LAX too.

Mike Tenay: They're a team to look out for in the future, that's for sure. We have confirmation that Christy Hemme is standing backstage with Team TNA, let's go backstage.

The camera cuts backstage, where Christy Hemme is standing backstage with Team TNA, of course consisting of the captain, the TNA X Division Champion 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels, as well as Amazing Red, Jay Lethal and Kazarian.

Christy Hemme: Thanks, Mike, I'm standing with Team TNA who later tonight will be competing in the World X Cup Gauntlet Match, which will decide the winners of the tournament. With everybody in attendance here and at home supporting you, are you guys confident going into the match?

Kazarian: Yeah, Christy, we're-

Kazarian is cut off when Daniels steps in the way, taking the microphone out of Hemme's hands.

Christopher Daniels: Whoa, whoa, whoa, who's the captain of this team? That's right, me. So shut your mouth and take a step back with your buddies Red and Lethal because I'm gonna handle this.

Daniels brushes off his title over his shoulder, before continuing.

Christopher Daniels: But to answer your question, Christy, yes. I amconfident. But y'see, it doesn't matter about them, it doesn't matter how many butterflies they have in their stomachs because let's face the facts here, none of them are gonna win the Gauntlet Match tonight.

TFA gets disapproving looks from the rest of the team.

Christopher Daniels: It's already set in stone, Christy, it's already been written in the history books forever. One man is winning that match tonight, one man is bringing the World X Cup to Team TNA... and that man is the captain of the team, the TNA X Division Champion... 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels. And that's the gospel.

Daniels walks away to heat from the crowd, and Lethal steps forward.

Jay Lethal: That guy is out of his mind.

Lethal shakes his head, before he, Kazarian and Red depart and the camera cuts back to the announce table with Tenay and Foley.

Mike Tenay: The Team TNA captain, the TNA X Division Champion 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels, doing all of the talking there as expected, and no surprises in the fact that Daniels believes he's the only credible competitor on the team.

Mick Foley: I'd be more than happy if Daniels won tonight, Mike, it would mean that Team TNA wins the World X Cup which is of course what we all want, but I totally agree, Chris' ego has gotten way out of hand.

*DAFFNEY/LOVE GRAPHIC*

Mike Tenay: It is now time for the second match of the night with the TNA Knockouts Championship on the line!

*GIRLFRIEND*

Angelina Love walks out to cheers from the crowd, posing for the crowd on the stage before walking down the ramp and entering the ring, walking into the corner.

*SCREAM*

The TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney walks out, getting heat from the crowd. With her title strapped around her waist, Daffney slowly walks down the ramp with a scowl on her face and enters the ring. Jeremy Borash enters the ring and stands in between the two competitors with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for the first Championship match of the night, and it is for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Knockouts Championship of the World! When the action begins, the man in charge will be TNA official Mike Posey. And now... introducing first, the challenger in the corner to my left. She hails from Toronto, Ontario, Canada... Angelina Love!

Cheers for Angelina.

Jeremy Borash: And now, introducing her opponent standing in the corner to my right. She hails from Silsbee, Texas. She is the reigning, defending Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Knockouts Champion of the World... Daffney!

Heat for Daffney, who reluctantly unstraps her belt from around her waist and gives it to the referee Mike Posey who holds it up in the air for all to see. Posey then hands the belt out of the ring, and the first title match of the night gets underway!

Match Two
Daffney © vs. Angelina Love
TNA Knockouts Championship

Daffney and Angelina Love approach the middle of the ring and they exchange some words, which appear to make Love unhappy, and she retaliates by slapping Daffney across the face! There are a lot of 'ohhh's in the crowd and Daffney slowly rubs her cheek before trying to kick Angelina in the mid-section, but Love catches her foot and then floors her with a double-foot takedown! Before Angelina can do any further damage, Daffney frantically crawls under the ropes and out of the ring, away from her fired-up opponent. The crowd boo the TNA Knockouts Champion and chant 'Angelina!' and moments later Daffney climbs onto the ring apron and cautiously re-enters the ring. The two of them walk towards each other and prepare to lock up, but instead Daffney pulls Love in to a standing headlock. Daffney keeps it applied for several seconds until Angelina pushes her away into the ropes. Daffney comes back and Love takes her down with an Arm Drag. She gets back up again and this time Angelina hits a Dropkick. Love subsequently makes the first cover attempt of the match: One! Two! Kick out on two from Daffney.

Angelina gets back to her feet and gets Daffney up, taking her down with a Snapmare. Love runs off the ropes behind her and Daffney rolls backwards, putting her feet up in the air, but Angelina leapfrogs over them, turns around and pins Daffney, holding onto her legs: One! Two! Daffney kicks out again. Love almost won the match and the TNA Knockouts Championship early on there, and both of them get back to a vertical base. Daffney takes control of the match, kicking Angelina in the mid-section, applying a front facelock and hitting a Suplex. She gets back up, runs off the ropes and hits Love with an Elbow Drop to the sternum. Daffney then covers: One! Two! Kick out on two. Daffney gets Angelina back up and kicks her in the mid-section, placing her head in between her legs. She hooks Love's arms and tries to lift her up for a Double Underhook Suplex, but Angelina's feet only slightly go off the ground and she then breaks out of Daffney's grip, lifting her up and planting her on the canvas with a Scoop Slam. Love then makes the cover, hooking the legs: One! Two! Daffney kicks out on the count of two. Angelina gets up and gets Daffney to a vertical base. She moves behind her and lifts the TNA Knockouts Champion into the air, hitting a Belly-to-Back Suplex.

Love then makes another pin attempt: One! Two! Daffney kicks out on two again. Angelina sits Daffney up and runs off the ropes, hitting a Rolling Neck Snap. Love gets up again and runs off the ropes once again in front of Daffney, this time knocking her down with a kick to the head. Angelina makes yet another cover: One! Two! Daffney gets the shoulder up. A frustrated Love gets Daffney up and applies a front facelock, preparing to attempt a Suplex. Daffney breaks out of it with ease though, and subsequently hits Angelina with an STO. Daffney rolls Love over onto her back and sits her up, applying a Body Scissors hold. She also pulls Angelina's head back by her hair, and locks in a Dragon Sleeper along with the Body Scissors. Love writhes in pain as the referee Jamie Tucker asks her if she wants to quit, but she shouts 'No!' Determined to continue and pursue her quest to become TNA Knockouts Champion, Angelina refuses to quit and manages to shift her way across the mat towards the ropes using her hands. Eventually, Love makes it to the ropes to the relief of the Toledo crowd but Daffney does not share their sentiments, screaming in anger and refusing to let go of the hold.

The referee counts to five and she only lets go on four, then getting up and screaming again in the referee's face. Daffney gets Angelina up and unceremoniously throws her through the ropes and out of the ring. Love crashes down to the concrete floor and Daffney follows her opponent out of the ring, grabbing her by the legs. Daffney looks to go for a Catapult with the steel ringpost right behind her, which could produce catastrophic results in Angelina's case, but Love manages to push Daffney with her legs backwards into the ring post! Angelina gets to her feet and Daffney runs towards her, but Love lays Daffney out on the concrete floor with a Clothesline! Angelina gets her up and lifts Daffney back into the ring, following her back in and immediately pinning her: One! Two! No! Daffney gets the shoulder up! Love slowly gets back up, beginning to feel fatigued, and approaches the corner of the ring, making her way to the top rope. Angelina eagerly waits for Daffney to get back up and when she does, Love risks it all, jumping from the top rope and going for a Cross Body... but Daffney lies down and gets her knees up, Angelina crashing into Daffney's knees!

Both competitors lie on the mat as we see a replay of Daffney's counter to Love's Cross Body. A grinning Daffney turns Angelina over onto her back and makes the cover, anticipating victory here: One! Two! No! Love gets the shoulder up! Daffney's grin quickly goes away and her eyes light up as she glares at the referee Jamie Tucker, getting up and screaming in his face once again. Meanwhile, Love slowly crawls across the canvas and rolls Daffney up with a Schoolboy! One! Two! Three-No! Daffney manages to kick out just before the three count! Love almost pinned Daffney out of no where there, and the two of them slowly get back to their feet. Daffney runs at Angelina going for a Clothesline but Love ducks it. When Daffney turns around, Love kicks her in the mid-section, gets her in position, and nails Daffney with the Lights Out! However, Daffney rolls near the edge of the ring, regardless of whether it was intentional or not, and Love slowly crawls across the ring, dragging Daffney back into the middle of the ring and eventually making the cover: One! Two! Three- No! Daffney gets the shoulder up!

Love once again comes agonizingly close to defeating Daffney and becoming the new TNA Knockouts Champion, but she took too long to make the cover and as a result, she has yet to pin Daffney. Angelina crawls towards the corner and uses the ropes to pull herself up to her feet. Love takes a breather whilst waiting for Daffney to get to her feet, and about twenty seconds later, 'The Scream Queen' struggles to her feet. As soon as Daffney is up, Angelina runs towards her and goes for the Botox Injection... but Daffney ducks it and when Love turns around, Daffney nails her with the Daff Knees! Daffney subsequently hooks Angelina's legs, making the cover: One! Two! Three! It's over, Daffney retains the TNA Knockouts Championship!

Daffney def. Angelina Love to retain the TNA Knockouts Championship at 8:22

Daffney gets to her feet and instead of having her hand raised by the referee Jamie Tucker, she screams in the ref's face, subsequently shouting 'Get my belt!' The startled referee collects the TNA Knockouts Championship from SoCal Val at ringside and stands behind Daffney, strapping the title around her waist as her eyes light up and she grins. Afterwards, Daffney begins to laugh as she leaves the ring and heads to the back, still the Champion.

Mike Tenay: Angelina Love gave it the best she had tonight, but in the end Daffney was the better competitor, love her or hate her, and she is still the TNA Knockouts Champion.

Mick Foley: You're right, Mike, Angelina did give it her all and I'd expect nothing less considering what was at stake in that match. Daffney won though, and won clean might I add which is surprising considering her last two title defenses.

Mike Tenay: Credit has to be given where it's due at the end of the day, congratulations to Daffney for succesfully retaining her TNA Knockouts Championship tonight at Victory Road.

We then see Love struggle to her feet in the ring and she holds her hand up to the crowd as if to say 'I'm sorry', before departing and slowly walking up the ramp.

Mick Foley: This definitely isn't the last we've seen of Angelina Love as far as the TNA Knockouts Championship is concerned, Professor.

Mike Tenay: Couldn't agree more. Well, coming up next it's the conclusion to the 2010 World X Cup with a Gauntlet Match involving the four members of each team in the tournament.

*RANKINGS GRAPHIC*

1st - Team Mexico - 5 points
2nd - Team TNA - 4 points
3rd - Team International - 3 points
4th - Team Japan - 2 points

Mick Foley: And here are the current rankings, but as we know they do not count for anything, because whoever wins the Gauntlet Match will win their team the World X Cup.

Mike Tenay: The tournament began with the first round on the June 17 edition of iMPACT!, four days after Slammiversary, with all first round victories worth two points. The second round took place this past Thursday in Philadelphia with the victories in that round worth three points which took Team International above Team Japan into third despite only having one victory out of three.

Mick Foley: But now, they are merely worthless facts and figures. Tonight is where the bragging rights are earned, my friend.

Mike Tenay: Let's hand you over to Jeremy Borash.

The camera cuts to the ring, where Borash is standing with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a 2010 World X Cup Gauntlet Match!

Cheers from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: The rules of this match are as follows; two competitors from any of the four teams will start off the match selected at random. After two minutes, another partcipants will join and a minute later another will join. After the first four participants have entered, team representatives will enter in the same order as the first four team representatives did. Eliminations will be made by throwing your opponents over the top rope until it is down to two competitors. Then, the winner will be determined via pinfall or submission and due to circumstances concerning the current rankings, the winner's team will officially win the 2010 World X Cup!

*EL MEJOR*

Team Mexico's Extreme Tiger walks out, not getting much of a reaction from the crowd. Tiger jogs down the ramp and slides into the ring, climbing to the second rope in the corner and slapping his heart with his hand before jumping back down.

Match Three
Team International vs. Team Japan vs. Team Mexico vs. Team TNA
World X Cup Four-Team Gauntlet Match

The bell rings for the Gauntlet Match to get underway and Extreme Tiger and Kazarian approach the middle of the ring. They both slowly link hands, preparing to lock up, but Tiger instead begins the match with a kick to his opponent's mid-section. He gets Kazarian in a standing headlock but he fights out of it with some blows to Tiger's ribs. Kazarian Irish whips him into the ropes and then goes for a Clothesline but Tiger avoids it by rolling across the mat and immediately springing back to his feet. Kazarian turns around and Tiger hits him with a kick to the mid-section, then running off the ropes and driving the Team TNA representative face-first into the mat with a Bulldog. Tiger quickly gets back to his feet and gets Kazarian up, hitting him with some forearms to the face before running off the ropes. However, when he comes back Kazarian floors the Mexican with an Arm Drag and when Tiger gets back up Kazarian hits him with a knife-edge Chop to the chest, getting 'Woooooo's from the crowd. Tiger backpedals into the corner of the ring and Kazarian hits him with some stomps to the ribs before stepping backwards and then running up, hitting Tiger with a Clothesline. Kazarian brings him into the middle of the ring and brings him down to a seated position on the mat with a Snapmare.

He then runs off the ropes and goes for a kick to Tiger's head but the luchadore avoids it, lying flat on the floor as Kazarian's kick attempt misses. Tiger then gets to his feet, but as soon as he does, Kazarian kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in a front facelock and hits him with a Suplex.

Before Kazarian get back up, Spears quickly slides under the ropes into the ring and attacks him, hitting Kazarian with stomps to the mid-section before getting him up.

Elimination #10 - Team TNA - Amazing Red

El Zorro gets to his feet and it seems like he forms an alliance with Koslov, the two of them running at Daniels, Kazarian and Lethal and picking a fight. Koslov hits Kazarian with a European Uppercut which sends him into the corner of the ring and repeatedly hits him with Shoulder Thrusts, while Zorro hits Daniels with a flurry of kicks before going for a Roundhouse Kick but 'The Fallen Angel' ducks it and hits Zorro with a Reverse STO, then locking him in the Koji Clutch! Zorro immediately taps out, but that won't save him as eliminations can only be made by being thrown over the top rope at this point in the match. After several moments, the TNA X Division Champion releases Zorro from the hold and gets to his feet, approaching the corner of the ring. Daniels jumps to the second rope and then to the top rope, before hitting Zorro with the Best Moonsault Ever! The countdown then begins for the final entrant in the match to enter:

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

*RISING SUN*

Entrant #16 - Team Japan - Hiroshi Tanahashi

The sixteenth and final entrant in this Gauntlet Match is Team Japan captain Hiroshi Tanahashi, who will have to pull off the upset of a lifetime if he is to lead his side to glory, with all of his teammates gone and Team TNA dominating at the moment. Tanahashi runs down the ramp and enters the ring, immediately flooring Daniels with a Clothesline before hitting Lethal with a Dropkick! Hiroshi then helps Team International captain Koslov, the two of them uniting to try to eliminate Kazarian from the match by lifting him over the top rope but Kazarian refuses to be eliminated and escapes with simultaneous boots to both of their faces. Kazarian climbs down from the top rope, and then floors Koslov and Tanahashi with a Double Clothesline! Meanwhile, Lethal gets Zorro back to his feet and sends him into the ropes with a right hand. Jay then runs off the ropes and charges across the ring, Clotheslining Zorro over the top rope and out of the ring but also taking himself over as well! Both men are eliminated from the match!

Elimination #11 - Team Mexico - El Zorro

Elimination #12 - Team TNA - Jay Lethal

With Zorro eliminated, Team Mexico cannot retain the World X Cup after winning it two years ago and it is now down to four; Alex Koslov from Team International, Hiroshi Tanahashi from Team Japan and Christopher Daniels and Kazarian from Team TNA. Koslov and Tanahashi stand together, ready to fight Daniels and Kazarian... but suddenly Koslov grabs Tanahashi and throws him over the top rope out of the ring, eliminating him which means Team Japan cannot win the World X Cup either!

Elimination #13 - Team Japan - Hiroshi Tanahashi

Now, either Team International or Team TNA will claim the World X Cup and the ball is in TNA's court, with two members left and only one member of Team International left. Daniels runs at Koslov who is near the ropes, but Alex manages to send Daniels over the top rope with a Back Body Drop! However, 'The Fallen Angel' manages to land on his feet on the ring apron and Kazarian then runs at Koslov but Alex steps aside and Irish whips Kazarian directly into Daniels, Kazarian inadvertently eliminating his own teammate!

Elimination #14 - Team TNA - Christopher Daniels

Daniels falls to the floor and Kazarian looks on in disbelief as he holds his hands on his head. Koslov turns him around and goes for the Soviet Strike, but Kazarian ducks it and hits Koslov with a Superkick of his own! It looks like Kazarian could well be closing in on the victory, and he makes the cover, hooking the legs: One! Two! The referee Andrew Thomas is pulled out of the ring... by Daniels! The crowd boo Daniels, who just stopped his own team from winning the match and the World X Cup! He enters the ring, getting Kazarian to his feet, kicking him in the mid-section, putting his head in his legs, hooking his arms, and nailing Kazarian with the Angel's Wings! Daniels then pulls Koslov along the mat onto Kazarian before leaving the ring, as Thomas re-enters and makes the cover: One! Two! Three! Team International have won the 2010 World X Cup thanks to the Team TNA captain Christopher Daniels!

Alex Koslov def. Kazarian to win the World X Cup Gauntlet Match; Team International wins the World X Cup at 24:07

Jeremy Borash: Here is your winner... Alex Koslov! And the winners of the 2010 World X Cup... Team International!

Koslov gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Jamie Tucker, before sinking to his knees on the mat. As the crowd continue to boo, Alex puts his hands in the air with a grin on his face as Daivari, Spears and Young come to the ring and help him up before lifting him up into the air on their shoulders. Red, white and blue confetti falls from the ceiling and SoCal Val enters the ring with the World X Cup trophy, giving it to Koslov who kisses it before holding it above his head. He is then put down by his teammates and they all get to hold the trophy before they all leave the ring and head to the back as the winners of the 2010 World X Cup.

Mike Tenay: What?! Christopher Daniels, the TNA X Division Champion, the captain of Team TNA... cost his team the World X Cup! Is that how big this guy's ego is? Is it so big that he feels the need to attack Kazarian for an accidental miscommunication between the two of them which results in Daniels being eliminated? If Chris had the best interests of the team in mind, he would have accepted it and walked away so that Kazarian could try his best to win us the trophy like I know he would have but no, that's just too damn much to ask, isn't it? Damn you, Christopher Daniels, damn you!

Mick Foley: I think a certain somebody needs to calm down.

Mike Tenay: Are you saying you don't agree with me? Are you trying to justify the actions of Christopher Daniels?

Mick Foley: No, I'm not trying to do that, but you're getting a bit too worked up, Mike, in my opinion.

Mike Tenay: Well I'm sorry, Mick, but I can't help it! The World X Cup represents us, it represents the phenomenon known as the X Division that we created eight years ago and it represents the hard work of everybody that has competed in the X Division! And of all the people to screw us out of the trophy, it's the guy who has been in the X Division since day one, Christopher Daniels! I'm not a fan of Daniels' ego as you might tell, but I always knew he was one of the best in the ring and I respected him for it, but not anymore!

Mick Foley: Deep breaths, Mike, deep breaths.

Mike Tenay: Forget it, let's just move on from that, we've got a pay per view to present here.

*MCMG/BRITISH INVASION GRAPHIC*

Mick Foley: We sure do, Mike, and coming up next it's our second Championship match of the night! The TNA World Tag Team Champions, The Motor City Machine Guns, make just their third defense of the belts since winning them three months ago at Lockdown against The British Invasion!

Mike Tenay: Let's take a look at the taglines.

*MCMG BEAT BRITISH INVASION VIA DQ ON JUNE 10*

Mike Tenay: On the live iMPACT! on June 10, three days before Slammiversary, The Motor City Machine Guns defeated The British Invasion in a non-title match via disqualification when Douglas Williams and Magnus bent the rules but didn't get away with it.

*MAGNUS, WILLIAMS BEAT SABIN, SHELLEY IN SINGLES COMPETITION*

Mick Foley: Two weeks ago, Magnus defeated Chris Sabin in a one-on-one match thanks to interference from Williams, and then the following week Williams defeated Alex Shelley thanks to interference from... guess who? That's right, Magnus!

*BRITISH INVASION AND DAFFNEY BEAT MCMG AND LOVE*

Mike Tenay: This past Thursday on iMPACT!, The British Invasion and the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney, who retained her title earlier tonight of course, defeated the 'Machine Guns and Daffney's opponent earlier, Angelina Love, so the momentum is clearly with Magnus and Williams.

Mick Foley: And right now, we're going to find out if that momentum will lead them to the gold!

*INVASION*

Douglas Williams and Magnus make their way out, getting heat from the crowd. Both wearing matching jackets with the Union Jack on the back, the Brits walk down the ramp with smug looks on their faces and enter the ring. They both climb to the second rope in opposite corners and pose before joining up.

*MOTORCITY*

The crowd's mood is lifted when the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns walk out, as they get a big pop. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin pose back-to-back on the stage before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. Sabin and Shelley both pose for the crowd again before walking into the corner and removing their leather jackets and their titles from around their waists, holding them in their hands. Jeremy Borash enters the ring with a microphone, and stands in between the two duos.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following tag team contest is the second Championship match of the night and it is for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Tag Team Championships of the World!

Cheers from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: When the action begins, the man in charge will be TNA referee, Andrew Thomas.

Cool.

Jeremy Borash: And now... introducing first, the challengers standing in the corner to my left. They both hail from the United Kingdom. At a combined weight of 475 pounds... they are Douglas Williams and Magnus, The British Invasion!

Heat for the Brits, who don't care at all.

Jeremy Borash: And now, introducing their opponents. They both hail from Detroit, Michigan. At a combined weight of 420 pounds... they are the reigning, defending TNA Tag Team Champions of the World... they are Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, The Motor City Machine Guns!

Another big pop for Sabin and Shelley, who hand their titles to Andrew Thomas who holds them up for everyone to see before passing them out of the ring.

Match Four
The Motor City Machine Guns © vs. The British Invasion
TNA World Tag Team Championships

Alex Shelley and Magnus both make their way out onto the ring apron in their respective corners of the squared circle, leaving Chris Sabin and Douglas Williams in the ring to get this match underway. Sabin and Williams lock up, and after a few moments Douglas goes behind Sabin. He wraps his arms around Chris' mid-section, but seconds later Sabin grabs Williams' hands and pulls them apart, escaping from his grip. Douglas grabs Sabin and goes for a Belly-to-Back Suplex but he flips backwards and lands on his feet behind Williams. Douglas turns around and Chris wrenches his arm around, pulling him in to a standing headlock. Williams pushes Sabin away into the ropes, and when he comes back the Englishman floors him with a Shoulder Block. Douglas runs off the ropes and Chris turns over onto his stomach, Williams jumping over him and running off the ropes again. Sabin jumps up to his feet and leapfrogs over Williams who runs off the ropes again, and this time when he comes back Sabin takes him down to the mat with a Dropkick! Sabin gets back up and raises one finger in the air as the Toledo crowd heavily cheer him on, but meanwhile Williams retreats to the corner and tags Magnus into the match.

Magnus enters the ring and stands in the corner with a smirk on his face opposite Sabin, and moments later they both run towards each other at the same time. Sabin hits Magnus with a flurry of kicks to the legs, before running off the ropes but as he comes back Magnus lays Sabin out with an Elbow Strike to the face. Magnus looks down at him with a smirk on his face before getting Chris up and Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. The Englishman approaches Sabin and hits him with some Chops to the chest before taking a few steps back. Magnus runs towards him, but Sabin boots him in the mid-section and then climbs to the second rope. Sabin jumps from the top rope and goes for a Tornado DDT... but Magnus catches him in mid-air and then dumps him over the top rope and out of the ring! Magnus walks around the ring with a grin on his face, raising his hands in the air and getting heat from the Toledo crowd. He waits for Sabin to get back up outside the ring, and when he does Magnus runs across the ring and hits him with a Baseball Slide to the face!

Sabin lies on the concrete floor outside the ring clutching his face, and Magnus then tries to make conversation with the referee Andrew Thomas who looks confused. Meanwhile, outside the ring Douglas Williams gets Sabin to his feet and drives him spine-first into the steel security rail! The crowd boo Williams, who then sees Alex Shelley jump off the ring apron and run towards him. Douglas retreats back to his corner and the referee sees Shelley, telling him to go back to his corner which he reluctantly does. Magnus leaves the ring and gets Sabin up, lifting him back into the ring. When he re-enters the ring himself, Magnus covers Sabin: One! Two! Sabin kicks out on two. Magnus gets Sabin up and lifts him up onto the back of his shoulders, but Sabin fights out of it and slips off his shoulders, landing on his feet behind Magnus. As soon as Magnus turns around, Sabin hits him with a kick to the gut followed by a kick to his right leg which brings Magnus down to one knee. Sabin subsequently runs off the ropes, and hits Magnus with an Enzuigiri to the skull! He then makes the cover soon after: One! Two! Magnus kicks out.

Sabin gets Magnus back to a vertical base and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring where his partner Shelley is stood. Sabin tags Shelley into the match for the first time and Alex enters the ring, hitting Magnus with a handful of forearm shots to the face in the corner. Shelley then drags him out of the corner and hits Magnus with an Inverted Atomic Drop. Sabin runs off the ropes and hits Magnus with a Running Dropkick to the knees which sends the Englishman face-down to the canvas. Shelley puts Magnus in an Inverted STF and Sabin runs off the ropes again, connecting with a Running Dropkick to the face of Magnus! Sabin leaves the ring and Shelley turns Magnus over onto his back, making the cover: One! Two! Magnus kicks out. Alex gets back up and gets Magnus to his feet, hitting him with a European Uppercut which sends the Englishman backpedalling into the corner of the ring. Shelley approaches Magnus and lifts him to the top rope, then climbing up there himself. Alex hits Magnus with some right hands before going for a Hurricanrana from the top rope, but Magnus pushes him away. Shelley flips backwards and lands on his feet, but is sent staggering backwards by a boot to the face.

Magnus climbs down from the top rope and Shelley runs towards him, but Magnus lifts him up and nails Shelley with a Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker! He then approaches the corner and tags Douglas Williams back into the match. Williams enters the ring and gets Shelley up, hitting him with rapid forearms to the head before kicking him in the mid-section, getting him in position and hitting Shelley with a Gutwrench Suplex! Douglas gets up and gets Alex up again, grabbing hold of him and hitting another Gutwrench Suplex. Williams isn't done though, getting Shelley to a vertical base for a third time and hitting a third Gutwrench Suplex! Douglas subsequently makes the cover, hooking the legs and looking like he is expecting victory: One! Two! No! Shelley gets the shoulder up! Williams looks at the referee Andrew Thomas and says 'Do it again, but better!' before making another cover: One! Two! No! Shelley gets the shoulder up again! Douglas gets up and says to the referee 'This isn't over' before getting Shelley up again, kicking him in the mid-section. Williams hooks Shelley's arms and lifts him up, running towards the corner and hitting Shelley with a Tigerbomb into the turnbuckles!

Williams drags Shelley into the middle of the ring by his legs and makes the cover: One! Two! No! Shelley kicks out! The Englishman is visibly getting frustrated, slamming his fists against the canvas repeatedly in anger. Williams then gets to a vertical base and heads towards the corner of the ring, climbing to the top rope. Douglas eagerly waits for Shelley to get back up and when he does several moments later, Williams jumps from the top rope going for a Double Axehandle... but Shelley kicks him in the mid-section in mid-air, applies a front facelock, crosses Williams' legs and nails Williams with the It Came From Japan II! The crowd explodes with cheers as Shelley and Williams both lie on the canvas and moments later they both begin to make their way towards their respective corners. With the majority of the crowd chanting 'Let's go, Shelley!' and a minority chanting 'Let's go, Williams!', Williams manages to make it to his corner first, tagging Magnus in. Magnus quickly enters the ring and runs towards Shelley who is down on the mat and is about tag in Chris Sabin, but Magnus grabs him by his left leg. Shelley manages to make it to his feet, and he hits Magnus with an Enzuigiri, freeing himself from his grip, before tagging Sabin into the match!

The crowd pop as Sabin moves across the ring apron and waits for Magnus to get back up. When Magnus gets back to a vertical base, Sabin jumps onto the ropes and springboards off them, hitting Magnus with a Springboard Clothesline! Sabin rolls forward as soon as his feet touch the floor and he jumps up to his feet, waiting for Magnus to get up once again. Magnus gets up and Sabin kicks him in the mid-section, getting him in position, lifting him up and hitting him with the Sabalizer! The cover is then made: One! Two! No! Magnus kicks out! Sabin doesn't let it get in his way and he quickly gets back up, getting Magnus up as well. Sabin goes for an Irish whip into the corner but Magnus counters it into an Irish whip of his own. Sabin stops himself from crashing into the turnbuckles and Magnus runs towards him behind his back, but Sabin steps out of the way and Magnus crashes into the turnbuckles! Sabin hits him with some blows to the back before lifting Magnus to the top rope, with the Englishman facing away. Sabin puts him in the Tree of Woe position, hitting a few stomps to the sternum before backing into the opposite corner. Sabin points his two index fingers towards Magnus in a gun-like motion, before running across the ring and hitting Magnus with a Hesitation Dropkick in the corner!

Magnus falls to the mat after that and Sabin drags him by his legs into the middle of the ring. Sabin then walks towards the corner and climbs to the top rope, but as soon as he does Magnus catches the attention of the referee Andrew Thomas, momentarily distracting him. Meanwhile, Douglas Williams runs across the ring apron and pushes Sabin, causing him to lose his balance and land in a seated position on the top rope. The referee sees Shelley trying to pursue Williams and stops him from doing so, much like what happened earlier on in the match, and moments later Magnus gets back to his feet. Magnus walks towards the corner and climbs to the top rope, applying a front facelock on Sabin before hitting Sabin with a Superplex down to the canvas! Magnus is then able to pin Sabin: One! Two! No! Sabin kicks out! Sabin's momentum has now been derailed thanks to the underhanded tactics of The British Invasion, and Magnus soon gets back up. He grabs hold of Sabin's legs and tries to turn him over onto his back, but Sabin pushes Magnus backwards with his legs into the corner. Magnus regains his composure and runs towards Sabin, but Sabin catches him off guard with a Small Package pin! One! Two! Three- No! Magnus kicks out just before the count of three!

This match was almost over there, and moments later Magnus and Sabin get back to their feet. Magnus kicks Sabin in the gut and Irish whips him into the ropes, lifting him into the air in a Military Press position and looking to let him drop down to the canvas but instead Sabin manages to connect with a Hurricanrana! Magnus is sent into the corner of the ring as a result and Sabin gets back up, running towards the corner and hitting Magnus with a Running Arched Big Boot to the face! Magnus falls down face-first to the mat and Sabin runs off the ropes, hitting Magnus with a Running Senton to the back! Sabin then makes the cover: One! Two! No! Magnus gets the shoulder up! Sabin makes his way towards the corner where nobody is present, but meanwhile Magnus moves towards his corner and tags Douglas Williams back in. Just as Sabin is pulling himself up to his feet with the ropes, Williams enters the ring and runs towards him, jumping Sabin from behind with a blow to the back. Williams turns Sabin around and pushes him backwards into the corner, hitting him with some Chops to the chest before backing away.

Williams then runs across the ring towards Sabin in the opposite corner, but Sabin quickly climbs to the second rope and jumps through the air, managing to connect with a Tornado DDT on Williams! Both competitors lie side-by-side on the canvas, and moments later Sabin makes the cover, could it be over here? One! Two! Three- No! Williams gets the shoulder up on two and a half! Sabin so very almost had Williams beat there, and he eventually gets back to his feet. Sabin staggers towards his corner and tags Alex Shelley back in. Shelley enters the ring and gets Williams back to a vertical base, only to bring him back down again with a Snapmare. Sabin and Shelley run off the ropes opposite each other before both hitting Williams with simultaneous kicks to the back and chest! Shelley then moves towards the corner and climbs to the top rope, posing for the crowd, before jumping off the top rope and nailing Williams with a Double-Foot Stomp to the sternum! Shelley rolls forward and then makes the cover: One! Two! Three- No! Magnus enters the ring and breaks up the count!

The crowd boo Magnus who quickly retreats back to the ring apron as Shelley gets to a vertical base and runs towards the corner, knocking Magnus off the ring apron with a Clothesline! Shelley then tags Sabin back in and he enters the ring, getting Williams up and Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. Shelley runs off the ropes and sprints towards the corner, hitting Williams with a Rope-Assisted Enzuigiri to the back of the head! Sabin lifts Williams up to the top rope and moves underneath him in a Powerbomb position. Shelley climbs to the top rope with his back turned and grabs hold of Williams by his neck, before Sabin and Shelley hit a Sit-Out Powerbomb/Sliced Bread #2 combination, connecting with the Made In Detroit! Sabin immediately pins Williams in a sit-out position, the referee sliding across the canvas to begin the cover with every fan in the Toledo Sports Arena on their feet in anticipation: One! Two! Three! It's over, The Motor City Machine Guns retain the TNA World Tag Team Championships!

The Motor City Machine Guns def. The British Invasion to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championships at 15:38

Sabin and Shelley get to their feet and have their hands raised by the referee Andrew Thomas to cheers from the crowd, before they are both handed their TNA World Tag Team Championship belts. The duo embrace before holding their titles high in the air and subsequently leaving the ring, high-fiving some fans as they make their way up the ramp.

Mike Tenay: They did it! The Motor City Machine Guns retain the TNA World Tag Team Championships!

Mick Foley: It didn't come without one hell of an effort from The British Invasion, love them or hate them they gave it their all, but the two men from Detroit stand tall in the end, still the TNA World Tag Team Champions!

*REPLAY OF SKULL AND BONES*

Mike Tenay: Douglas Williams was never gonna get up from that!

Mick Foley: Indeed, Professor, indeed.

The camera cuts to the stage, where Sabin and Shelley raise their titles in the air once more before disappearing behind the curtain. It then cuts to the ring, where Douglas Williams and Magnus, both on their feet now, slowly exit the ring.

Mike Tenay: Close, but no cigar, British Invasion! The 'Machine Guns have proved their tag team dominance once again tonight in Toledo!

Mick Foley: Have some sympathy, Mike.

Mike Tenay: Let's go to the back where our newest backstage correspondent, current commentator on Xplosion, 'The Human Suplex Machine' Taz, is waiting.

The camera then cuts backstage, where Taz is standing with 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan.

Taz: Thanks, Mike, it's great to be here in Toledo tonight and who better to be my first guest than 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan?

Morgan walks into the shot getting heat from the crowd, and he immediately pulls Taz's arm towards him so he can talk into the microphone.

Matt Morgan: I'll answer that for you, Taz... nobody. Especially considering that in a few moments' time, I'm going out to that ring to face that dirty streetdweller D'Angelo Dinero and I'm going to become the TNA Global Champion!

Heat for Morgan, who smiles as he basks in his glory.

Taz: No offense, Matt, but aren't ya' getting a bit ahead of yourself here?

Morgan's smile goes away, and he glares down at Taz.

Matt Morgan: Taz... I want you to look at me, and then I want you to think about that question you just asked. Come on, even you and even these idiots in Toledo...

Cheap heat. Nothing better.

Matt Morgan: ... can see that I am a giant of a man. I'm seven-foot... I'm three-hundred-and-thirty pounds of pure domination and I'm the guy that will be walking out of this Arena tonight with the TNA Global Championship. But if it helps you remember me easier... you can just call me 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan.

Matt grins before walking out of the picture, as Taz watches him leave and the camera cuts back to the announce table with Tenay and Foley.

Mike Tenay: You might be able to guess that the TNA Global Championship match is coming up next, as 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero defends the gold against a man who is without a shadow of a doubt his biggest challenge yet in more ways than one, 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan!

*DINERO/MORGAN GRAPHIC*

Mick Foley: Morgan seems pretty sure that he will become the new TNA Global Champion tonight, and as big a fan of Dinero as I am, if I had to bet on who will win this match, I'd put my money on Morgan. I hope I'm wrong, but like Morgan said himself, he's a giant of a man and three-hundred-and-thirty pounds of pure domination. He wasn't kidding around.

Mike Tenay: Well, let the speculation and talk end because it's now time!

*SLEEPING GIANT*

The Toledo Sports Arena becomes filled with heat as 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan walks out with an ear-to-ear grin on his face. Morgan raises one open hand into the air on the stage as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp, his eyes lit up and looking ready to go. Morgan enters the ring and poses for the crowd again, before walking into the corner.

*CATHOLIFUNK*

The TNA Global Champion 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero walks through the curtain, getting a big pop from the crowd. Wearing a black bandana, sunglasses, jacket and a gold chain around his neck with the title strapped around his waist, a confident Dinero saunters down the ramp and stops to pose as fake dollar notes fall from the ceiling before entering the ring. Dinero walks into the corner and removes his entrance attire as well as his title from around his waist, hoisting it over his shoulder and locking eyes with Morgan. Jeremy Borash enters the ring.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is the third Championship match of the night and it is for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Global Championship!

Pop from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: When the action begins, the man in charge will be TNA referee, Slick Johnson.

We already know he's a TNA referee, otherwise he wouldn't be here, so why bother mentioning it, JB?

Jeremy Borash: And now... introducing first, the challenger standing in the corner to my left. He hails from Fairfield, Connecticut. Weighing 330 pounds and standing seven feet tall... representing Fortune... he is 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan!

Heat for Morgan, who nods his head and smirks.

Jeremy Borash: And now, introducing his opponent standing in the corner to my right. He hails from the streets of Harlem, New York. Weighing 220 pounds... he is the reigning, defending TNA Global Champion... he is 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero!

Big pop for Dinero, who looks around the venue with a look of defiance before giving the referee Slick Johnson his title. Slick raises it in the air before passing it out of the ring.

Match Five
D'Angelo Dinero © vs. Matt Morgan
TNA Global Championship

The bell rings and D'Angelo Dinero and Matt Morgan approach the middle of the ring, a defiant Dinero looking at a cocky Morgan in a sharp contrast of mentalities as this match begins. Moments later Dinero and Morgan lock up, but not long after that Matt shows his tremendous strength, pushing Dinero away and down to the canvas. Morgan grins and nods his head before posing for the crowd, getting heat as Dinero gets to his feet and brushes himself off. 'The Pope' approaches his larger opponent again and this time, instead of locking up, Dinero begins to hit Morgan with right hands but they are all ineffective. Dinero then runs off the ropes, charging towards his opponent but Morgan flattens Dinero with a Clothesline! 'The Blueprint' looks like he's loving this so far, walking into the corner and leaning back against the ropes as he waits for Dinero to get to his feet, tapping his watch and saying 'Take your time, Pope, take your time'. Dinero gets back up and Morgan runs towards him, but gets taken down by a Drop Toe Hold, the first manuever that Dinero has executed so far in this match.

Dinero subsequently puts Morgan in a headlock, trying to keep him grounded on the mat for as long as possible, but a few moments Morgan makes it to his feet and lifts Dinero up, planting him on the mat with a Belly-to-Back Suplex as a counter to his opponent's headlock. He then runs off the ropes and goes for an Elbow Drop, but Dinero moves out of the way and Morgan's elbow only hits the canvas. The TNA Global Champion quickly capitalizes on the mistake, climbing on top of Morgan and pummeling him with repeated blows to the head. However, the referee Slick Johnson puts a stop to it, separating the two of them and the crowd boo as Dinero gets to a vertical base and Morgan quietly rolls out of the ring. With his back turned to the ring, Morgan takes a breather outside but meanwhile Dinero climbs out onto the ring apron and jumps off, hitting Morgan with a Double Axehandle to the back of the head which knocks the big man down to the concrete floor! Dinero gets back to his feet and bows for the crowd before hitting Morgan with recurrent stomps to the back. 'The Pope' then slides back into the ring and the referee starts the count: One! Two! Three! Morgan gets to his feet. Four! Five! Morgan gets back in the ring.

As soon as Morgan re-enters the ring, before he can get up Dinero hits him with more stomps but Morgan sits up and grabs Dinero by the throat. Matt gets to his feet and forces Dinero into the corner, hitting him with a flurry of blows to the head before turning around and backing into his opponent. Morgan looks around the crowd in the Toledo Sports Arena, before unloading on Dinero with a series of back elbows, varying from left to right, to the face of the TNA Global Champion. Morgan turns around and lifts Dinero to the top rope, then lifting him up from there into the air and walking into the middle of the ring. Morgan parades his opponent who he is holding in the air for everyone to see before unceremoniously dropping him behind his back to the mat... but Dinero lands on his feet! Morgan thinks Dinero is down, but 'The Pope' has other ideas, rolling Morgan up with a Schoolboy, the first pin attempt of the match! One! Two! Morgan kicks out! Dinero almost caused an upset there and both competitors then get back to their feet. Dinero hits Morgan with some Chops to the chest before running off the ropes and going for a Cross Body, but Morgan catches him in mid-air and throws Dinero overhead across the ring with a Fall Away Slam!

Morgan makes his way across the ring towards his opponent and hooks Dinero's legs, making the cover: One! Two! Dinero gets the shoulder up on two and a quarter. Morgan gets up and gets Dinero to a vertical base, Irish whipping him into the ropes. Dinero comes back and Morgan scoops him up onto his side, planting Dinero on the mat with a Sidewalk Slam! 'The Blueprint' makes another cover attempt: One! Two! Dinero gets the shoulder up again. Morgan briefly looks at the referee Slick Johnson after Dinero kicks out, before getting his opponent up again and locking the TNA Global Champion in an Abdominal Stretch. Dinero is trapped right in the middle of the ring and he has no where to go, as Morgan continues to apply the pressure on his opponent but still affords to have a grin on his face. Morgan shouts 'Give up, Dinero!' but 'The Pope' refuses to quit, holding on as the fans get behind Dinero and chant 'Let's go, Pope!' Using his left hand, Dinero manages to hit Morgan with some blows to the face which aren't effective until Dinero begins to fire them at him rapidly, and Morgan eventually lets go of Dinero, staggering backwards into the ropes. Dinero regains his composure, before running forward and Clotheslining Morgan over the top rope and out of the ring!

Dinero sinks down to a seated position, taking a breather and clutching his ribs as the referee begins the count on Morgan: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Morgan gets back to a vertical base. Six! Seven! Morgan re-enters the ring. When Morgan gets back in, the tired Dinero is still down and both competitors get back to their feet at the same time. Morgan goes for a right hand but Dinero blocks it and kicks Morgan in the mid-section. Dinero hits him with some elbows to the head before running off the ropes and managing to knock the giant Morgan down to the mat with a Flying Forearm Smash! 'The Pope' hooks Morgan's legs and makes the cover soon after: One! Two! No! Morgan gets the shoulder up on two and a half! Dinero almost defeated the seven-footer there, and moments later he gets back to his feet. Dinero drags Morgan towards the corner of the ring by his arms and hits him with a handful of stomps to the sternum, before backing away into the opposite corner. Dinero then runs across the ring and handstands on the top turnbuckle, before nailing Morgan with the Outer Limitz Elbow! Dinero follows up by making the cover again: One! Two! Morgan reaches out and grabs onto the middle rope.

A disappointed Dinero gets back to his feet and gets Morgan up to a vertical base, setting him up in the corner. Dinero tries to lift him to the top rope but Morgan keeps his feet on the ground and grabs Dinero by the shoulders, headbutting him in the forehead and sending 'The Pope' backpedalling into the middle of the ring. Morgan comes out of the corner and Dinero regains his composure before running towards him, but Morgan lifts him up and locks Dinero in a Bearhug. Much like the Abdominal Stretch that Morgan used earlier in the match, this Bearhug has Dinero trapped in the middle of the ring with no where to go and with the life being squeezed out of him by his seven-foot, three-hundred-and-ten pound opponent. Dinero's arms are trapped in between his body and Morgan's arms, but about half a minute later Dinero manages to free his arms and he hits Morgan with some blows to the head, continuously doing so until Morgan lets him go. Dinero runs off the ropes and charges towards his opponent, but Morgan spins around and flattens Dinero with the Discus Clothesline!

Morgan then quickly makes the cover: One! Two! No! Dinero gets the shoulder up! 'The Blueprint' sits up with his hands on his head, remaining in that position for a few seconds before getting back to a vertical base. Morgan gets Dinero up and applies a front facelock, lifting 'The Pope' into the air in position for a Suplex... but Dinero manages to change his position, land on his feet behind Morgan, and lay him out with a Russian Leg Sweep! Both competitors remain docile on the ground for several moments until Dinero eventually covers Morgan: One! Two! No! Morgan kicks out on two and a half! Seconds later, Dinero slowly gets up, followed by Morgan. The challenger Morgan looks to get back on track in this contest immediately, running towards his opponent, but out of no where Dinero nails Morgan with the Dinero Declaration! Dinero crawls across the canvas and makes the cover, could this be it? One! Two! Three- NO! Morgan gets the shoulder up on two and three quarters! 'The Pope' was agonizingly close to defying the odds and winning the match to retain his TNA Global Championship, but Morgan kicked out just before the count of three.

Both competitors remain down on the mat for a while with the crowd chanting 'Let's go, Pope!' with the exception of a small few who chant 'Let's go, Morgan!' Dinero and Morgan eventually get back up and Dinero grabs Morgan by his left arm, trying to Irish whip him into the corner of the ring but instead Morgan sends Dinero into the corner with an Irish whip of his own. 'The Blueprint' subsequently charges towards Dinero in the corner, but 'The Pope' steps out of the way and Morgan accidentally goes crashing into the turnbuckles! Dinero then slowly backs away into the opposite corner, rolling down his kneepads and posing for the crowd before running across the ring... but out of no where Morgan turns around, charges forward and almost takes Dinero's head off with a devastating Carbon Footprint! The Toledo Sports Arena is silenced as Morgan sinks to his knees and covers Dinero, could this be it? New Champion? New Champion? One! Two! Three! Yes! Matt Morgan is the new TNA Global Champion!

Matt Morgan def. D'Angelo Dinero to win the TNA Global Championship at 11:12

An ecstatic Morgan gets to his feet and ignores the referee Slick Johnson, staggering backwards into the corner and raising one hand in the air. SoCal Val hands him his newly-won TNA Global Championship and he snatches it out of her hands, subsequently raising it in the air with a fixed smile on his face. 'The Blueprint' parades his title around the ring before stepping out of the ring and walking up the ramp, holding the belt above his head once more before walking behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: I didn't want it to end this way, but... Matt Morgan is the new TNA Global Champion.

Mick Foley: Mike, I know you don't like his attitude or the fact that he's in Fortune and I don't either, but at least be happy for Matt Morgan. He's been here for three years and finally he has won his first singles title, congratulations Matt!

Mike Tenay: Dinero's reign lasted 175 days - 175 days - by far the longest reign in the two-year history of the belt, but that reign has come to an end tonight in Toledo, courtesy of 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan.

Mick Foley: Dinero's reign as TNA Global Champion has solidifed him as a major player in professional wrestling, Professor, and I'm sure we'll see 'The Pope' with Championship gold again in the near future.

Mike Tenay: Fortune now holds two Championships, with Mr. Anderson holding the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he will defend later tonight against 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles, and now Morgan has added to that. I don't like that at all, anything that gives Ric Flair and Fortune power in this company is bad news for TNA in my opinion.

*ROODE/STORM GRAPHIC*

Mick Foley: And speaking of Fortune, one of their guys is in action next!

Mike Tenay: James Storm betrayed his tag team partner and best friend, Robert Roode, last month at Slammiversary after Roode defeated him in a one-on-one match and with the bad blood brewing ever since then, Roode and Storm do battle next at Victory Road... in a Street Fight.

The video begins with a shot of James Storm and Robert Roode, in the ring holding up the TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Narrator: Beer Money... a team that has revolutionized professional wrestling.

Roode and Storm posing on the stage as their pyro goes off.

Narrator: A team that has won several TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Narrator: A team...

Narrator: ... torn apart.

Storm smashing the beer bottle over Roode's head and standing over him in the ring, before cutting to Storm who is sat in the studio with a bottle of beer in his hand.

James Storm: Y'know, ever since Slammiversary, Bobby's been blamin' me for what happened. He thinks that I smashed a bottle over the back of his head for no good reason... (Smirks) ... well Bobby, ya' need to take a long, good look at yourself, boy, 'cause I don't do anythin' for no reason.

Cut to Roode.

Robert Roode: It took a while for it to sink in... being betrayed by not only my tag team partner, the guy who I've held several TNA World Tag Team Championships with... but my best friend. I didn't see it coming, even after everything that happened leading up to Slammiversary and knowing how James did the exact same thing to Chris Harris four years ago.

Storm smashing a beer bottle over the back of Harris' head four years ago.

James Storm: He was always the weak link in our team, yet I was always able to pull Beer Money through the hard times until I came to the realization that it just wasn't worth it anymore. What Bobby needs to do, is come to the realization that he's to blame. The blood's on his hands, not mine.

Shot of Roode on the mat, bleeding from the head, before cutting to Roode.

Robert Roode: Why did he do it? I don't know. James could have been a man and told me that he wanted to go out on his own, blaze his own trail in this business, and I would have respected his decision. I mean, hell, I wanna do the same thing and I will. But instead, he stabbed me in the back and now he's with Ric Flair in Fortune.

James Storm: Look at me now; I've never felt better. I'm with 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair, and I'm with the best in this business. Wouldn't you feel great if you were workin' with Ric Flair? Well you're not, and you never will, 'cause Fortune is TNA, Fortune is this business and Fortune is the best thing goin' today.

Cut to a graphic of Roode and Storm, advertising their Street Fight at Victory Road.

Narrator: This Sunday at Victory Road on pay per view, James Storm and Robert Roode will settle their differences in Toledo in a Street Fight.

Cut back to Roode.

Robert Roode: I don't care anymore about money, or suits, or cars, because all I care about is making sure that July 11 is a night that James Storm will never forget for the wrong reasons. James, this Sunday at Victory Road it isn't about professional wrestling... it isn't even about fighting. It's about redemption, it's about getting even, it's about putting you through hell.

James Storm: Bobby, this Sunday I'm takin' you out. This is Fortune's company now, and we don't want guys like you in our ring, so enjoy the ride, Bobby, 'cause it's gonna be your last.

Robert Roode: At Slammiversary, I had to see my blood on my own hands. Well James, this Sunday you can bet your sorry ass there's gonna be blood on my hands, but it's not gonna be mine... it's gonna be yours.

We fade to black.

*SORRY ABOUT YOUR DAMN LUCK*

Back in the Toledo Sports Arena, 'The Tennessee Cowboy' James Storm walks out to major heat from the crowd. Wearing a cowboy hat and a black and red jacket with a Fortune shirt and denim jeans and a bottle of beer in his hand, Storm raises his bottle in the air as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp and entering the ring. Storm removes his jacket and hat and puts his bottle down in the corner.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a Street Fight! In this match, there are no disqualifications and no count-outs and it can only be won via pinfall or submission! Introducing first, from Leiper's Fork, Tennessee, weighing 250 pounds... representing Fortune... 'The Tennessee Cowboy' James Storm!

*IT PAYS TO BE ROODE*

Robert Roode walks out in a white tank top and denim jeans with elbowpads and his hands taped, getting a big pop from the crowd. With water dripping from his hair over his face and his fists clenched, Roode slowly walks down the ramp before stopping outside the ring.

Jeremy Borash: Introducing his opponent, from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, weighing 240 pounds... Robert Roode!

As soon as Borash has finished, Roode slides under the ropes and immediately charges at Storm, flooring him with a double-leg takedown as the bell rings!

Match Six
James Storm vs. Robert Roode
Street Fight

This Street Fight starts off hot with Robert Roode flooring James Storm with a Double-Leg Takedown and subsequently climbing on top of him, pummeling his former tag team partner with blows to the head. The referee Andrew Thomas cannot do anything due to the stipulation of this match and he stands in the corner watching as Roode and Storm continue to fight whilst down on the mat. Both competitors soon get back to their feet and Roode kicks Storm in the mid-section, firing away with right hands before running off the ropes and going for a Clothesline but James ducks it and rolls out of the ring, getting a lot of heat from the crowd. The pumped-up Toledo crowd chant 'Let's go, Roode!' and Roode quickly leaves the ring, chasing Storm around the ringside area. Storm momentarily hides behind the steel ringsteps and as Roode comes around the corner of the ring, Storm jumps out and lays Roode out on the concrete floor with a vicious Clothesline! The cheering crowd are silenced as Roode is taken out and Storm unloads on his adversary with repeated stomps, targeting his sternum, mid-section and legs. Storm gets Roode up to a vertical base, and drives Roode spine-first into the steel ringpost!

Roode writhes in pain, sinking to his knees and Storm then lifts up the ring apron, searching for a weapon underneath... and reveals a Kendo Stick! The crowd may hate Storm, but they love Kendo Stick and they cheer when Storm reveals the weapon. Storm swings it in Roode's direction but Roode manages to duck it and 'The Tennessee Cowboy' hits the steel ringpost instead, breaking the Kendo Stick in half. Roode gets back up and knees Storm in the mid-section, hurling him shoulder-first into the steel security rail! Storm sinks down to a seated position up against the security rail and Roode drives his foot into Storm's throat, keeping the pressure applied for several moments until he eventually decides to let go. Storm is left gasping for air, but doesn't have long to recover as Roode gets him to his feet and lifts him back into the ring. Roode slides back into the ring, gets up and immediately hits Storm with an Elbow Drop to the sternum. Roode gets to a vertical base and gets Storm up, hitting him with some right hands. James staggers backwards into the corner and Roode lifts Storm's leg up onto the second rope, striking Storm with a blatant low blow to the groin!

The crowd cheer, with Mike Tenay stating that Storm deserves it, and Roode brings his opponent into the middle of the ring, applying a front facelock and hitting Storm with a Suplex. Roode quickly gets to his feet, sits Storm up and hits him with a stiff kick to the back! He then gets Storm to his feet and unceremoniously throws 'The Tennessee Cowboy' through the ropes and down to the floor outside the ring. Roode leaves the ring and hits Storm with some stomps to the sternum before getting him to his feet, but James catches Roode off guard with a European Uppercut which sends him staggering backwards into the steel security rail. Storm takes a few steps back, before running up and Clotheslining Roode over the steel security rail, taking both men over and into the crowd! The crowd go nuts as Roode and Storm both lie on the floor, and they both remain there for several moments. Both competitors eventually get back up and Storm hits Roode with a knee to the mid-section, subsequently slamming Roode's head into the security rail numerous times. Storm then lifts Roode over the rail and climbs back over himself, lifting up the ring apron and revealing... a Garbage Can!

With Roode now on his knees, Storm lifts the Garbage Can into the air ready to hit him with it but Roode fights back with some blows to the mid-section, causing Storm to drop the Garbage Can to the floor. Roode gets to his feet and kicks Storm in the mid-section, planting him face-first on the concrete floor with a sick-looking DDT! There are a lot of 'Ohhh's in the crowd followed by cheers and Roode takes a breather for a few seconds, admiring the view of Storm face-first down on the floor, before getting him in a kneeling position. Roode lifts up the Garbage Can and puts it over a dazed Storm's head, then searching under the ring and revealing a Steel Chair. Roode takes a few steps back, before running forward and slamming the Steel Chair into the Garbage Can, with Storm's skull underneath! Storm falls backwards to the floor and the crowd chant 'Holy s**t!' as Roode removes the Garbage Can and gets Storm back in the ring, then re-entering the ring himself. Roode then makes the first cover attempt of the match, the man obviously content to end this Street Fight here: One! Two! No! Storm gets the shoulder up!

Roode slowly gets up and rolls under the ropes, leaving the ring. Roode searches under the ring and reveals a Table, which he slides into the ring before re-entering himself. Roode sets up the Table in the middle of the ring and gets Storm up, Irish whipping him into the corner. Roode lifts Storm to the top rope but before he can climb up there himself, 'The Tennessee Cowboy' sends him backpedalling with a boot to the face. Storm climbs down and Roode runs at him but Storm momentarily blinds him with a thumb to the eye which gets a lot of heat from the crowd. Storm then Irish whips Roode into the ropes, and subsequently puts Roode through the Table with his own Double-R Spinebuster! There is a very mixed reaction in the Toledo Sports Arena as Storm drags Roode away from the shards of broken Table by his legs and then makes the cover, looking to win the match here: One! Two! Three- No! Roode kicks out before the three count! Storm glances at the referee Andrew Thomas before getting back to his feet and throwing the shards of broken Table out of the ring.

Storm walks into the corner of the ring and eagerly waits for Roode to get to his feet. When Roode eventually does get to a vertical base, Storm goes for the Last Call... but Roode catches his leg, pulls him in and hits Storm with the Double-R Spinebuster, the way it should be done! Roode hooks Storm's legs and makes the cover, could this be it right here? One! Two! Three- No! Storm gets the shoulder up just before the count of three! Roode sits up and runs his hands through his hair, sweat dripping from his forehead, before getting to his feet. Roode once again rolls out of the ring, albeit slowly, and picks up the Steel Chair that he used earlier, bringing it into the ring. Roode sets up the Chair and gets an incredibly groggy Storm to his feet, applying a front facelock and hooking his leg, looking to go for the Pay Off on the Steel Chair. However, Storm fights back with some blows to the mid-section and breaks out of the front facelock, then lifting Roode up and hitting him with a Scoop Slam onto the Steel Chair! Roode writhes in pain, his back evidently hurting after that Scoop Slam onto the Steel Chair, and Storm throws the Chair into the air, then making the cover: One! Two! No! Roode kicks out!

Storm crawls towards the corner and pulls himself up to his feet with the ropes. He approaches Roode, who is still down on the mat, in the middle of the ring and gets him to his feet. Storm moves behind Roode, now standing back-to-back, and lifts him up by his arms, spinning him around non-stop for several moments before nailing Roode with the Eye of the Storm! Storm tries again, hooking Roode's legs and making another cover attempt: One! Two! Three- No! Roode gets the shoulder up! This match was almost over there and Storm knows it. He gets up and grabs Roode by his legs, getting him in position... and locking Roode in the Sharpshooter, right in the middle of the ring! Roode's eyes immediately light up, as he yells out in pain and tries as hard as he can just to stop himself from tapping out. It's clear that he wants to tap out, but Roode's pride and reputation is at stake here and he refuses to quit. Storm repeatedly yells 'Tap out, Bobby!' for almost half a minute, but Roode doesn't and he slowly edges his way across the mat... making it to the ropes! Roode thinks he's safe now, but this is a Street Fight, the ropes can't save him in this environment, and Storm drags Roode back into the middle of the ring, keeping the Sharpshooter applied!

The entire crowd in the Toledo Sports Arena chant 'Please don't tap!' in the direction of Roode, who cries out in pain. Storm has an ear-to-ear grin on his face, and he keeps the Sharpshooter locked in for almost half a minute longer, but Roode doesn't quit and he manages to roll over onto his back then pushing Storm away with his legs into the corner of the ring, finally escaping from the devastating submission hold! The fans all breath a sigh of relief as Roode slowly crawls into the corner opposite Storm, but Storm then runs across the ring, getting Roode up to his feet. 'The Tennessee Cowboy' goes for a right hand but Roode blocks it and then kicks him in the mid-section. Roode puts Storm's head in between his legs and lifts him up into the air, running across the ring and driving Storm into the turnbuckles in the opposite corner with a Running Powerbomb! Storm falls face-first down to the mat and Roode turns him over onto his back, hooking the legs and making the cover: One! Two! Three- No! Kick out from Storm on two and a half!

Roode slowly gets up and makes his way towards the corner, climbing out onto the ring apron and then climbing to the top rope. Roode raises his hands in the air, posing for the crowd, before going for a Frog Splash... but Storm gets his knees up, and Roode goes gut-first into the knees of his opponent! Roode took a risk and in the end got no reward, as both competitors lie side-by-side on the mat. The whole crowd chant 'Let's go, Roode!' until Storm is the first man to get up and he gets Roode up, standing behind him and hitting Roode with a Double-Knee Backbreaker! Roode's back lands on Storm's knees and 'The Tennessee Cowboy' transitions it into a Sleeper Hold. Storm is now on one knee as he keeps Roode, who is in a seated position, in the submission and Roode waves his arms around, trying to remain alert. However, it seems like Roode begins to fade away and the referee Andrew Thomas lifts his arm up, dropping it to the ground once. He lifts it up again, and drops it to the mat again. Thomas lifts it up once more, and drops it... if Roode's arm hits the floor then Storm will win this Street Fight... but Roode stops his arm from hitting the floor!

The crowd cheer and Roode begins to make a comeback, struggling to his feet and lifting Storm up, hitting him with an Atomic Drop. Roode then runs off the ropes behind him and nails Storm with the Northern Lariat, immediately knocking him face-first down to the canvas! The Toledo Sports Arena becomes unglued with cheers with Roode now having a perfect opportunity to pin Storm, but unfortunately for him and the vast majority of the audience, Storm rolls away into the corner. Roode slowly crawls across the mat and drags Storm by his legs into the middle of the ring, making the cover, could this be it? One! Two! Three- No! Storm kicks out a split-second before the count of three! Roode just came agonizingly close to winning this Street Fight, if he had covered Storm sooner then there's no doubt that this would be over right now. But, it isn't over and Roode slowly gets back up to his feet. Roode runs off the ropes, and hits Storm with a Knee Drop to the sternum, then rolling forward, as the pace of this match begins to slow down a little. Roode takes the Steel Chair out of the corner and sets it up in between the top and middle ropes, then getting Storm to his feet and setting him up in the corner in front of the Chair. Roode backs into the opposite corner, before running across the ring but Storm steps out of the way and hurls Roode face-first into the Steel Chair in the corner!

Roode remains on his knees in the corner for a few seconds and when Storms brings him into the middle of the ring, Roode is busted open. Storm kicks him in the mid-section, hooks his arms, and hits Roode with a Double Underhook Suplex! Storm then makes the cover: One! Two! Three- No! Roode kicks out! Storm thought he had the match won there and he gets up, getting Roode up, putting his head in between his legs, hooking his arms and hitting another Double Underhook Suplex! Storm quickly gets Roode back up, applies a Half Nelson hold, and then hits Roode with a Half Nelson Suplex! After a quick flurry of Suplexes, Storm covers Roode again, expecting victory: One! Two! Three- No! Roode refuses to quit, getting his shoulder up off the canvas! Storm sits up and has a look of disbelief on his face, thinking that those Suplexes were surely enough to finish off Roode once and for all, but he was wrong. 'The Tennessee Cowboy' crawls across the mat into the corner and struggles to his feet, waiting for Roode to get to his feet.

The camera zooms in on Storm's face, his eyes wide open and his lip trembling, and when Roode finally gets up, Storm prepares to go for the Last Call but before he can even lift his leg up off the mat Roode kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in position, and nails Storm with the Pay-Off! The crowd goes wild and Roode then slowly sits up, making it to his knees...

But meanwhile, none other than 'WILDCAT' CHRIS HARRIS runs down the ramp with a beer bottle, slides into the ring and smashes the bottle over the back of Roode's head!!!

The crowd cannot believe it and they heavily boo as Harris drags Storm on top of Roode and shouts at the referee Andrew Thomas 'Do it! Make the damn cover!' Thomas reluctantly does so, albeit intentionally slowly: One! Two! Three! James Storm has defeated Robert Roode in this Street Fight... thanks to Storm's former tag team partner, the returning 'Wildcat' Chris Harris!

James Storm def. Robert Roode in a Street Fight at 18:46

Storm is helped to his feet by Harris and he has his hand raised by the referee Andrew Thomas, who has a look of disapproval on his face after what just transpired. When Harris lets go of Storm, he sinks to his knees before crawling into the corner on his hands and knees, lying back in exhaustion. A grinning Harris helps Storm out of the ring and up the ramp, 'The Tennessee Cowboy' looking like he doesn't know where he is right now, and the two of them disappear behind the curtain having just screwed Robert Roode.

Mike Tenay: What the- what the hell just happened?! Robert Roode had James Storm beat, he had decimated him in this Street Fight, but Storm wins thanks to- thanks to Chris Harris?! We haven't seen Harris in TNA in over two years! Why the hell is he back, though?!

Mick Foley: Helping out an old friend, I presume.

Mike Tenay: But that's the thing, Mick, they used to be friends until their split when Storm turned on Harris just like he did on Roode last month! These guys hated each other after they split, they fought each other inside a Steel Cage, hell, they even had a Texas Death Match! After all of that, why did Harris help Storm?! Has he forgotten about what James did to him?!

Mick Foley: Well it looks like Harris and Storm may have reconciled, Mike, after what we just saw.

Mike Tenay: That's what it looks like at first glance, Mick... but I still have a hard time believing it.

In the ring, medics and road agents are crowded around Roode in the ring, who is still down. They sit him up and ask him if they can see or hear him, and many are worried when a bloodied Roode, bleeding from the forehead and from the back of the head, replies 'Is it over?', sounding very dazed and ignoring their questions. Pat Kenney asks again if they can see and hear him, and Roode says 'Just about... I think so' before he is helped to his feet and out of the ring, getting a big pop from the crowd and a 'Robert Roode!' chant on his way out.

Mick Foley: That doesn't look good at all.

Mike Tenay: Looks like it could be a concussion.

Mick Foley: I really hope not, but it looks like it is, Mike. And it's even worse when you consider the fact that Roode sustained a concussion at the hands of a beer bottle shot to the head from Storm at Slammiversary, that was only a month ago, and the same has happened again tonight thanks to Chris Harris. Two concussions in a month... that's pretty bad.

Mike Tenay: I'm, uh... I'm worried. I've known Bobby for seven years, and it's hard to watch him not knowing what just happened and not even sounding entirely sure that he can see and hear Pat Kenney.

Mick Foley: If I was Robert Roode, I'd stay away from the ring for a while. When he got a concussion last month, he came back less than two weeks later and that was foolish, it really was.

Mike Tenay: If we get an update on Roode's condition, we'll let you all know.

The camera then cuts backstage, where we see Mr. Anderson in the Fortune locker room alone getting huge heat from the crowd when he appears on the screen. Anderson stands up and picks up his TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt, hoisting it over his shoulder and smirking before walking out of the door.

Mike Tenay: There you see the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, who in a few moments will defend his title against the former Champion, the man who Anderson didn't defeat one-on-one to win the title, 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles.

Elsewhere, we see 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles walk out of his locker room, wearing a black and gold jacket matching his tights with the hood covering his face. Styles slowly walks down a corridor, on his way to the ring.

Mick Foley: And speak of the devil, there he is, AJ Styles. He's focused, he's determined, and he is hell-bent on regaining the title he feels he unfairly lost.

*ANDERSON/STYLES GRAPHIC*

Mike Tenay: The Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match between Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam may be our main event tonight at Victory Road, but this is still a huge match nonetheless. It's Mr. Anderson... it's AJ Styles... it's the most prestigious title belt in professional wrestling today... the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

---

The video begins with the Slammiversary logo appearing on the screen, and we then see Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan all interfering in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Narrator: Last month at Slammiversary, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship was on the line in the annual King of the Mountain Match, but it was hijacked by the group that would become known as Fortune.

Mr. Anderson climbing the Ladder and hanging the title up in the air, winning the match and the belt, and then holding the title in the air whilst sitting at the top of the Ladder.

Narrator: Mr. Anderson capitalized and hung the prestigious title in the air, becoming the new Champion, but in the process making a lot of enemies.

Samoa Joe stood inside the penalty box, scowling at Anderson.

Narrator: Four days later on iMPACT!, Anderson seemingly turned down a spot in Fortune...

Anderson and Styles shaking hands before their match four days after Slammiversary.

Narrator: ... but by the end of the night...

Anderson hitting AJ with the title belt, and raising his hands in the air with Fortune.

Narrator: ... the new Champion showed his true colours.

The camera then cuts to Anderson sat in an interview studio.

Mr. Anderson: Everybody's been whinin' and complainin' about how I 'stole' the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, and how I betrayed AJ Styles, boohoo, yeah... but c'mon, (Points to himself) do I really look like a give a crap?

Cut to Styles.

AJ Styles: I'll admit, I was stupid to trust Mr. Anderson after what he did at Slammiversary but hey, that's in the past now. All I'm thinkin' about now, is takin' back the TNA World Heavyweight Championship that I never lost.

Mr. Anderson: AJ can talk about how he 'never lost' the title, but he knew damn well what he was gettin' himself in to when he walked into Anaheim against four other guys. So sorry, buddy, but ya' ain't gonna get any sympathy there.

AJ Styles: Anderson thinks that he can do whatever he wants around here, just 'cause he's in Fortune. They may look powerful, but they're gonna be gone real soon, trust me.

We see a graphic previewing their match.

Narrator: This Sunday at Victory Road in Toledo, live on pay per view, Mr. Anderson defends the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against the former holder of the title, 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles!

AJ Styles: If Anderson can beat me fairly, then I'll gladly admit that he deserves that belt. But it's Mr. Anderson we're talkin' about here. He's gonna use every trick he's got up his sleeve to try and beat me, but in the end it won't matter, 'cause this Sunday at Victory Road, AJ Styles is takin' back the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Mr. Anderson: I'm a winner, OK? I'm gonna do whatever it takes to win, but this Sunday, seein' as I'm facin' AJ Styles... I won't have to break a sweat. And AJ's dream of winnin' this title again is gonna be crushed by... guess who? MIIIISSSTTTAAAAAHHH ANNNDDDEERRRSSOONNNN... ANNNDDDEERRRSSOONNNN!!

We fade to black.


---

*GET READY TO FLY*

Back in the Arena, the lights go out and the camera cuts to the stage where AJ Styles is standing with his back turned to the camera, the logo on the back of his black and gold jacket visible. Styles then turns around and flicks his hood back, posing as pyro rain falls from the ceiling before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. AJ runs off the ropes and poses for the crowd again before settling in the corner.

*FEEDBACK*

The lights go out again and a spotlight shines down on the stage after several moments, where Mr. Anderson is standing holding the TNA World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder. Anderson walks down the ramp with the spotlight following him until he enters the ring and stands opposite Styles in the corner as Jeremy Borash comes into the ring.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is the fourth and final Championship match of the night and it is for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Heavyweight Championship of the World!

Cheers from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: When the action begins, the man in charge will be TNA senior referee, Earl Hebner.

He screwed Bret.

Jeremy Borash: And now... introducing first, the challenger standing in the corner to my left. He hails from Gainesville, Georgia. Weighing 215 pounds... he is the only Grand Slam Champion in TNA Wrestling history... he is 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles!

Big pop for Styles, who removes his jacket without taking his eyes off Anderson.

Jeremy Borash: And now, introducing his opponent standing in the corner to my right. He-

Borash sees Anderson holding his hands up, and he stops.

Jeremy Borash: What?

Anderson holds his finger up, before reaching into the air and taking his microphone which comes down from the ceiling, drawing heat from the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: Whoa, whoa, whoa... whoa! You can't do my introduction! You wanna be me? Huh? You wanna be me? Well you're not.

Styles looks at Anderson in confusion.

Mr. Anderson: Now, if you don't mind... (Clears throat) I weighed in this morning at a slender 250 pounds... I hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin... I am everybody's favourite wrestler...

Heat from the crowd, who disagree with Anderson's statement.

Mr. Anderson: ... and I am the TNA Heavyweight Champion of the World... MIIIISSSTTTAAAAAHHH ANNNDDDEERRRSSOONNNN... ANNNDDDEERRRSSOONNNN!!

At this point, the referee Earl Hebner is trying to hold Styles back and Anderson lets go of his microphone which reels back up to the ceiling. Anderson hands Hebner his title and he holds it in the air for all to see before passing it out of the ring so the match can begin.

Match Seven
Mr. Anderson vs. AJ Styles
TNA World Heavyweight Championship

The bell rings and AJ Styles and Mr. Anderson immediately charge towards each other, engaging in a collar-to-elbow tie-up. After a few moments of both men trying to overpower each other, Anderson forces Styles backwards into the corner of the ring but AJ pushes him away. Ken retreats into the opposite corner and the two of them come to a standstill, before they move towards each other and lock up again. Anderson gets Styles in a headlock and floors him with a headlock takedown but AJ manages to get back up moments later. Styles pushes Anderson away into the ropes and he comes back, hitting AJ with a shoulder block which knocks him down. Anderson runs off the ropes again and jumps over Styles who lies on his stomach on the mat, running off the ropes again. AJ springs up to his feet and leapfrogs Anderson, but when Styles turns around, Anderson slaps him across the face! A lot of 'Ohhh's are heard amongst the crowd in the Toledo Sports Arena and AJ responds with a slap of his own to the face of his opponent! Anderson then goes for a kick to the mid-section but Styles catches his leg and floors Ken with a Dragon Screw takedown.

Anderson quickly rolls away and gets to his feet in the corner, both competitors looking around the crowd who are cheering. Both men run towards each other and lock up again, Anderson with a go behind. Ken lifts Styles off his feet and floors him on his stomach on the canvas with a rotating slam, then turning him over and making the cover but AJ kicks out before the referee Earl Hebner can even start the count. Both competitors get back up and Anderson hits Styles with a knee to the mid-section, then going for an Irish whip into the corner of the ring but AJ reverses it with an Irish whip of his own. Styles runs towards Ken and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion tries to fend him off with a boot to the mid-section but AJ catches his leg and hits Anderson with a right hand. Styles lifts him to the top rope and climbs up there himself, going for a Hurricanrana from the top rope but Anderson holds onto the top rope and AJ goes down himself. Styles manages to land on his feet but Ken then hits him with a boot to the face which sends 'The Phenomenal One' staggering backwards. Anderson climbs down and runs at AJ, but Styles takes him down with an Arm Drag.

Anderson gets back up and runs at him again but AJ takes Ken down with another Arm Drag. Both men get back to a vertical base once more and Anderson runs at Styles again but this time AJ hits him with a Dropkick. Styles gets to his feet and throws his arms out, posing for the cheering crowd before making the cover: One! Anderson kicks out. AJ gets back up and gets Ken to his feet, running off the ropes and going for a Rolling Elbow but Anderson ducks it. When Styles turns around, Anderson kicks him in the mid-section, applies a front facelock and plants AJ on the mat with a Suplex. Ken makes the cover: One! Styles kicks out on one. Anderson gets back up and runs off the ropes, hitting AJ with an Elbow Drop to the sternum. Ken gets Styles up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, casually walking towards where AJ is situated. Anderson hits Styles with some knife-edge Chops to the chest, all of which get 'Wooooo's from the Toledo crowd, and finally stops when AJ's chest has gone bright red. Anderson floors Styles with a Snapmare and then runs off the ropes, hitting 'The Phenomenal One' with a Rolling Neck Snap.

Anderson then makes the cover: One! Two! Styles kicks out on two. Ken gets up and gets AJ to his feet, kicking him in the mid-section. Anderson runs off the ropes and goes for a Knee Lift but Styles avoids it, lifts him up and plants Ken on the mat with a Bridging Belly-to-Back Suplex. Anderson lands on his shoulders and the cover is immediately made: One! Two! Ken gets the shoulder up on two. Styles lets go of Anderson and gets him up, hitting him with some Forearms to the head before running off the ropes. Anderson looks to counter with a Clothesline but AJ is one step ahead and he avoids it by sliding through his legs, then getting up. When Anderson turns around, Styles wraps his arms around him and throws Anderson across the ring with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex! AJ quickly crawls across the mat and hooks Anderson's legs, making the cover: One! Two! Anderson kicks out. Styles grabs Anderson by his legs and tries to turn him over onto his stomach, but Ken pushes AJ away into the corner with his legs. Anderson then gets back to his feet and runs at Styles, but AJ lifts him off his feet and sends Ken face-first into the top turnbuckle with a Flapjack!

Before Anderson can fall backwards to the mat, Styles turns him around and lifts Ken up, planting him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Styles makes another cover attempt: One! Two! Anderson gets the shoulder up. AJ gets up and runs off the ropes, hitting Ken with a Knee Drop to the sternum. Styles rolls forward and springs up to his feet, running off the ropes and this time hitting Anderson with an Elbow Drop. Another cover is made by AJ: One! Two! Ken kicks out. Styles gets up to a vertical base and gets Anderson up, applying a Standing Headlock. AJ keeps Ken locked in it for an extensive period of time, roughly half a minute, until Anderson lifts him up off his feet for a Belly-to-Back Suplex, but Styles counters it into a Headlock Takedown. Ken's shoulders are now pinned to the mat and the cover is made: One! Two! Anderson gets the shoulder up. AJ keeps the Headlock applied, and when Ken gets up to a seated position Styles transitions it into a Chinlock. Moments later, Anderson gets up and pushes AJ away into the ropes. Styles comes back and Anderson ducks down in preparation for a Back Body Drop, but AJ leapfrogs over the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and runs off the ropes.

Styles runs off the ropes, but Anderson then turns around and takes AJ down with a Drop Toe Hold. Ken lays Styles' right arm out on the mat and gets to his feet, repeatedly stomping on AJ's arm before hitting a Knee Drop on the right arm of 'The Phenomenal One'. Anderson turns Styles over onto his back and sits him up, getting him in a Headlock. While keeping him in the hold, Ken repeatedly drives his knee into AJ's ribs, doing so for almost a minute which is how long he keeps him in the Headlock. After a minute passes, Styles gets to his feet and hits Anderson with some blows to the mid-section until Ken lets go of the hold. AJ runs off the ropes, and Anderson swings a wild right hand which Styles ducks before running off the ropes again. AJ comes back and Anderson turns around, lifting Styles onto his shoulders and hitting him with a Samoan Drop! Ken then makes the cover: One! Two! AJ kicks out. Anderson gets to his feet and gets Styles up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. The TNA World Heavyweight Champion then runs towards him but Styles quickly climbs out onto the ring apron and before Ken can stop himself he crashes into the turnbuckles.

Anderson groggily staggers backwards into the middle of the ring and Styles jumps onto the ropes, but before he can springboard off Anderson charges forward and pushes AJ off the ropes and down to the concrete floor outside the ring! As Styles lies on the floor on the outside, Anderson takes a breather in the ring whilst the Toledo crowd boo him and chant 'You suck!' Ken notices and he climbs to the second rope in the corner, giving the crowd two middle fingers! That only increases the heat that Anderson gets and he laughs to himself before leaving the ring and getting AJ to his feet. Ken hits Styles with some right hands and then runs forward holding onto AJ, trying to hurl him into the steel security rail. However, Styles stops himself and Anderson then runs towards him but AJ kicks him in the mid-section and drives him back-first into the ring apron! Styles gets Anderson back into the ring on the referee Earl Hebner's count of six and makes the cover: One! Two! Anderson kicks out. AJ gets Ken to his feet and takes him down with a Snapmare, before hitting Anderson with a stiff kick to the back!

The crowd cheer and applaud after that kick and Styles looks around the Toledo Sports Arena, shouting to the crowd 'You want another one?' The fans respond with loud cheers and AJ runs off the ropes, hitting Anderson with a second kick to the back! The crowd cheer even more and Styles holds up one finger, shouting 'One more!' before running off the ropes, and hitting a third kick to the back of Mr. Anderson! AJ then pins Anderson's shoulders to the mat and makes the cover: One! Two! Ken gets the shoulder up. Styles gets up and climbs out onto the ring apron, slamming his feet against the apron which gets the crowd clapping along whilst he waits for Anderson to get back to his feet. When Ken gets back to a vertical base, AJ jumps onto the ropes and springboards off, going for a Springboard Flying Forearm Smash... but Anderson counters with a Dropkick in mid-air! Both competitors lie on the mat for several moments and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion is the first to get back to his feet. Anderson gets Styles to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. In no rush, Ken walks towards AJ and lifts him to the top rope, then climbing up there himself.

Anderson positions AJ so that he is facing away from the ring and gets him in position... before hitting Styles with an Inverted Suplex from the top rope and down to the canvas! Ken slowly turns 'The Phenomenal One' over onto his back and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Styles kicks out! About fifteen seconds later, Anderson gets back up and grabs AJ's legs, looking around the crowd with a Toledo Sports Arena with a grin on his face... before applying the Figure Four Leg Lock on Styles! Despite the crowd's hatred for Anderson, they respond with loud 'Wooooo's as Ken locks AJ in the signature submission move of Anderson's new mentor, 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair. Styles writhes in pain and frantically waves his arms around as Ken keeps the pressure applied, loving every second of his opponent's pain. Anderson keeps the hold locked in for another thirty seconds until AJ begins to edge his way backwards across the mat... and makes it to the ropes!

The crowd cheer but Anderson feels very differently, keeping the Figure Four Leg Lock applied, refusing to let go, and shouting 'I'm gonna break your damn legs!' but he reluctantly lets go on the referee Earl Hebner's count of four. Anderson slowly gets Styles to his feet and lifts him onto his shoulders, but 'The Phenomenal One' immediately fights out of it with some blows to the face before climbing off. Ken goes for a back elbow but Styles rolls forward, avoiding it, and he springs to his feet, turning around and hitting Anderson with a Forearm Smash to the face. Anderson staggers backwards into the ropes and AJ runs off the opposite ropes, charging across the ring and Clotheslining Anderson over the top rope and down to the floor outside the ring! Styles takes a breather as Ken stays down on the floor on the outside, but when he gets up AJ runs off the ropes and sprints across the ring, going over the ropes and taking out Anderson with the Fosbury Flop!

Anderson and Styles both lie on the floor outside the ring as the crowd go wild after that sensational Fosbury Flop from AJ. On the referee's count of six, Styles gets up and gets Anderson to his feet, lifting him back into the ring. When AJ re-enters the ring he covers Ken, hoping to win the match here: One! Two! No! Anderson kicks out! Styles sits up and pulls himself up to his feet with the ropes, climbing out onto the ring apron and then climbing to the top rope. AJ looks around the crowd in the Toledo Sports Arena, before flying from the top rope and nailing Anderson with the Spiral Tap! The crowd explodes and Styles remains on the mat next to his opponent for a few moments, before slowly hooking Ken's legs and making the cover, could this win Styles the TNA World Heavyweight Championship back? One! Two! Three- No! Anderson gets the shoulder up! AJ thought he had the match won there and he holds his head in his hands, before getting up several moments later. Styles gets Anderson up and places his head in between his legs, throwing his arms out which unglues the Toledo crowd.

However, before AJ can lift his legs up for the Styles Clash, Anderson floors Styles and rolls forward, pinning AJ with a Bridge out of no where! One! Two! Three- No! Styles kicks out! Anderson almost won the match and retained the TNA World Heavyweight Championship out of no where there, but AJ kicked out and this excellent match continues. Both competitors slowly get back to their feet and when they do, Anderson slaps Styles across the face! The crowd boo the Champion but then AJ retaliates with a slap of his own which draws loud cheers. Anderson and Styles then engage in a slapping war, trading about a dozen slaps until Ken quickly gets AJ in position for the Mic Check! However, Styles fights out of it with an elbow to the head of Anderson and moves behind him, grabbing hold of Anderson and planting him on the mat with a Bridging German Suplex! Ken lands on his shoulders and the cover is made: One! Two! Three- No! Anderson gets the shoulder up a split-second before the count of three!

A few seconds later, AJ gets back to his feet and grabs Anderson's legs... locking him in a Figure Four Leg Lock of his own! The Toledo Sports Arena becomes filled with 'Wooooo's and cheers as Styles locks Anderson in the move that Ken used earlier in the match which almost made AJ tap out, and the move obviously made famous by Ken's mentor Ric Flair, and there is a look of shock on Anderson's face. Ken sits up and looks at AJ, shakes his head... and spits in Styles' face! Anderson gets a lot of heat after that but as a result, AJ cranks up the pressure on the Figure Four Leg Lock even more! Ken screams in pain and shouts repeatedly 'Let go! Let go! Let go!' in desperation, but a grinning Styles shakes his head and keeps the pressure applied as much as possible. Eventually, Anderson crawls backwards across the ring and makes it to the ropes, angering the crowd who heavily boo the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. AJ lets go and drags Ken into the middle of the ring, getting him up and placing his head in between his legs once again, throwing his arms out to a huge pop from the crowd.

However, Anderson reaches out and pulls the referee Earl Hebner in towards him, before Low Blowing Styles without the referee seeing! The crowd boo furiously and Anderson then stands up straight, getting AJ in position and nailing him with the Mic Drop! Ken sits up with a smirk on his face and gives the crowd the middle finger once again before hooking Styles' legs and making the cover: One! Two! Three! It's over, Anderson retains the TNA World Heavyweight Championship thanks to a Low Blow and a Mic Drop!

Mr. Anderson def. AJ Styles to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at 20:26

Anderson gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Earl Hebner to heat from the crowd, before pulling away and snatching his TNA World Heavyweight Championship out of the hands of SoCal Val, who is stood on the ring apron. Anderson clutches his belt to his chest and stands in the corner, managing a grin (surprise!) before approaching the middle of the ring.

Mike Tenay: Damnit! AJ Styles was robbed of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship for not the first, not the second, but the third time by Mr. Anderson! That man is a fraud, he's a phony and he sure as hell doesn't deserve that title! He's giving this company a bad name!

Mick Foley: My feelings may not be as strong as yours, Mike, but I do agree, Mr. Anderson doesn't need to utilize under-handed tactics to win his matches, we all know he has the ability to do that, but yet he still doesn't.

Anderson looks down at Styles and shakes his head before raising his belt in the air to more heat from the crowd facing away from the stage, but meanwhile Samoa Joe emerges from behind the curtain in a black T-shirt and jeans with a skull cap and runs down the ramp, sliding into the ring. As soon as Anderson turns around, he runs into a Clothesline from Joe!

Mike Tenay: It's Samoa Joe! Joe is here in Toledo, and he's finally come for Mr. Anderson!

Anderson crawls into the corner but Joe gets him up, hitting him with several blows before turning his back and then spinning around, nailing Anderson with the CCS Enzuigiri! Before the TNA World Heavyweight Champion can fall to the mat, Joe lifts him to the top rope and gets him in position, lifting him up and walking into the middle of the ring, nailing Anderson with the Muscle Buster!

Mike Tenay: MUSCLE BUSTER TO MR. ANDERSON!! I'M LOVING THIS, BABY!!

Joe gets to his feet and looks directly at the camera, with the crowd going absolutely wild and chanting 'Joe! Joe! Joe!' Joe picks up the TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt and looks down at Anderson, pointing at the title and saying 'Enjoy it while you still can' before dropping it on top of Anderson and turning around to see Styles on his feet looking at him. The two of them have a brief staredown before Joe leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, the crowd still cheering. Moments later, AJ looks at Anderson and laughs before leaving the ring.

Mike Tenay: For the last month, Samoa Joe has claimed that he is coming for Fortune. We didn't know whether Joe would validate his claims or not, but he has tonight at the expense of the main man of Fortune, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson!

Mick Foley: These fans absolutely loved it, seeing Joe take out Anderson like that, and I have to say I did too, Mike!

Mike Tenay: Me too, partner! Anderson got what was coming to him, but the sad fact of the matter is, he still has that TNA World Heavyweight Championship and as every day passes with the title in his hands, he degrades it more and more.

Mick Foley: But if anybody can withstand the onslaught of Anderson's cheap tactics, can take on the whole of Fortune and can above all beat Anderson, then it's Samoa Joe. And I'm saying that when Joe has never even faced Anderson before!

Mike Tenay: His time will come, I'm sure of it.

*WOLFE/RVD GRAPHIC*

Mike Tenay: But now... it's time for the main event. It's time for the match that we've been waiting for all night, the match that is five months in the making, the match that will lose somebody's job. It's Desmond Wolfe, a man who has only been in TNA since October last year, against Rob Van Dam, a man who came into the company in February this year. Neither of them have been here particularly long, but tonight one man will walk away from TNA nonetheless. Now, we will hear from both RVD and Wolfe backstage.

The camera cuts backstage, where Christy Hemme is standing by with Desmond Wolfe, who is wearing a grey jacket and sunglasses and is with Ric Flair.

Christy Hemme: Ladies and gentlemen, I'm standing with Desmond Wolfe and 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair where we are getting ready to witness our main event tonight; Wolfe and Rob Van Dam in a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match. Desmond, what are your thoughts going into this match?

Wolfe looks at Flair before stepping back, as Ric moves towards Christy.

Ric Flair: Christy, I'm thinkin' that RVD's ass is bein' thrown out of TNA tonight, woooooo!

Heat for Flair.

Ric Flair: That overrated piece of crap shouldn't even be in this company, this is our company, this is TNA, this is Fortune's house now, brother! We've taken over, we're changin' TNA, we're changin' this company and now this is a company that RVD ain't welcome in! Not now, not ever! After tonight, RVD's gonna hate Toledo just like we do, 'cause he's gonna remember it as the place where he lost his job! Tonight, your career goes up in smoke! Woooooo!

Ric grins at the camera before stepping to one side, as Wolfe steps forward towards the camera. He stares into the lens for several moments, before finally removing his sunglasses and eventually smirking. Desmond then puts them back on and joins Flair as the two of them walk away.

The camera then cuts elsewhere, where Taz is standing with Rob Van Dam.

Taz: I'm here with 'The Whole F'n Show', my man Rob Van Dam who is about to face Desmond Wolfe in a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match. Rob, what's going through your mind right now, man, we've gotta' know.

Rob Van Dam: Taz... I haven't slept all week, dude. I've tried, but I can't because when I close my eyes all I see is Desmond Wolfe at the top of a Ladder, signing a contract and losing me my job here... and I can't stand the sight of it.

Van Dam approaches the camera, going up close as we see his eyes which look bloodshot and baggy.

Rob Van Dam: Look at these eyes... I'm not the guy I usually am. I'm not the laid-back, easy-going RVD you know, I'm not making guarantees or setting standards, because I can't afford it! This is my career, my job, my life at stake here! It isn't just about me, it's about my wife Sonya and it's about these fans who have supported me ever since I was a nobody stepping into a ring in ECW for the first time.

Cheers for RVD.

Rob Van Dam: I wish I could say I'm going to win tonight, I really do. Am I a better wrestler than Desmond Wolfe? Yeah. Am I a better person? You can be the judge of that, but I'd like to think so. But the fact is, it's not about whether I'm a better wrestler or person than him or not, because neither of those things are gonna guarantee that I walk out of here tonight with a job. It's do or die, Desmond, for both of us... and I'm not ready to die.

Taz: Thanks, Rob, best of luck, man.

Taz extends his hand and RVD accepts, the two of them hugging. Van Dam walks out of the picture to a big pop from the crowd, before the screen fades to black.

---

The video begins with the Sacrifice logo appearing on the screen, and we then see Desmond Wolfe hitting Rob Van Dam with the Jawbreaker Lariat and pinning him at that pay per view.

Narrator: At Sacrifice, Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam faced off for the first time ever, three months into their bitter rivalry. Wolfe defeated Van Dam, but it was under controversial circumstances.

The Slammiversary logo then flashes across the screen, and we see RVD jumping off a Ladder and putting Wolfe through two tables with a Five-Star Frog Splash, with the referee counting ten.

Narrator: One month later at TNA's eight-year anniversary, Slammiversary, RVD and Wolfe met again, this time in a helacious Last Man Standing Match. It was meant to end their rivalry, but a draw meant it was far from over.

We then see Van Dam taking out a Ladder from underneath the ring and setting it up, before cutting to Wolfe sitting at the top of a Ladder the following week.

Narrator: But this Sunday at Victory Road in Toledo, Ohio, the five-month rivalry between Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam finally comes to an end... in a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match.

The camera then cuts to Wolfe, who is sat in an interview studio.

Desmond Wolfe: So this Sunday at Victory Road, it's myself and Rob Van Dam in what he calls a 'Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match'... which means that whoever loses, leaves TNA. (Laughs) Rob, I think you've taken two beatings from, well, me, too many because you need to understand that you can't beat me.

Cut to RVD.

Rob Van Dam: I wouldn't have challenged Desmond to this kind of match, a match with such high stakes and ramifications... if I didn't think I could beat him. Desmond's a pretty smart guy, but come on, nobody knows RVD better than RVD, you know what I mean?

Desmond Wolfe: I'll admit, I wasn't at my best at Slammiversary. Rob Van Dam had the chance to beat me in our Last Man Standing Match, something that not many people have done in TNA... but he blew it. He put the fans ahead of himself so he could give them something to remember, and what do I think about that? Well, I think he's bloody stupid.

Rob Van Dam: I could have beat Desmond at Slammiversary, sure, but I'm actually kind of glad that I didn't because if I did, then this match on Sunday wouldn't be happening. And besides... look at him. He hasn't been the same since Slammiversary.

A graphic previewing their match appears on the screen.

Narrator: After this Sunday, one man will leave TNA. Will it be Desmond Wolfe or Rob Van Dam?

Desmond Wolfe: Rob has nobody to blame but himself. He had the chance to prove to me that he could beat me but he couldn't, and now it's gonna cost him his job. Shame, eh?

Rob Van Dam: I'm not gonna lie, Desmond's a good competitor, but he doesn't have a future in TNA. I'm gonna climb that Ladder, sign that contract and fire Desmond from this company for good.

Desmond Wolfe: After this Sunday, I'll be making history, and Rob Van Dam... will be history.

The screen fades.


---

*MENACING*

The crowd becomes filled with heat as Desmond Wolfe walks out, with Ric Flair in tow. Wolfe holds up the Fortune handsign, as does Flair, on the stage before walking down the ramp towards the ring with a smirk on his face. Flair holds down the middle rope for Desmond to enter the ring and he gives the fans his two-fingered gesture before removing his sunglasses.

*WHOLE F'N SHOW*

Rob Van Dam walks out, getting a huge pop from the crowd. Van Dam raises his hands in the air before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans, and making his way into the ring. RVD climbs to the second rope in the corner and performs his signature thumb taunt, before climbing down and standing opposite Wolfe as Jeremy Borash arrives.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is your main event of the night, and it is a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match!

Pop from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: The first man to climb a Ladder and retrieve the contract fifteen feet high in the air will win the match, and the loser must leave TNA Wrestling for good! And now, introducing first in the corner to my left. He hails from London, England. Weighing in at 235 pounds... representing Fortune... he is Desmond Wolfe!

Major heat for Wolfe.

Jeremy Borash: And now, introducing his opponent standing in the corner to my right. He hails from Battle Creek, Michigan. Weighing in at 230 pounds... he is 'The Whole F'n Show' Rob Van Dam!

Big pop for RVD, and Borash then leaves the ring.

Match Eight
Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Van Dam
Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match

The bell rings and Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam approach the middle of the ring, having a heated staredown at the beginning of what can only be their last-ever encounter in a TNA ring. Wolfe holds up the Fortune handsign in Van Dam's face and that sets RVD off, who kicks Desmond in the mid-section and then begins to unload on him with right hands. Rob rapidly hits Wolfe over and over again with blows until Desmond pushes him away. RVD doesn't hold back though, running towards him again but this time Wolfe kicks him in the mid-section. Desmond knocks Van Dam down to the mat with a European Uppercut and then goes to ground, putting Rob in a Headlock. Wolfe keeps him down for almost half a minute, keeping Van Dam down on the canvas every time he tries to get back up, but RVD eventually makes it to his feet and fights out of the hold with some blows to the mid-section. Rob goes for a right hand, but Desmond blocks it and hits him with one of his own. Wolfe then runs off the ropes and charges towards his opponent, but Van Dam knocks him down with a Heel Kick. Rob runs off the ropes and goes for a Spinning Leg Drop but Desmond moves out of the way and RVD lands on the mat in a seated position.

Wolfe gets back up and runs off the ropes, going for a kick to Van Dam but Rob rolls forward out of the way. RVD gets back up but when he turns around Desmond takes him down with a Shoulder Block. Wolfe quickly gets him back to a vertical base and applies a Cravate, keeping it applied until he transitions it into a Snapmare. Desmond runs off the ropes and hits Rob with a Dropkick to the back, before rolling under the ropes and out of the ring. Wolfe searches under the ring and takes out a Ladder, which he slides under the ropes into the ring. Desmond then re-enters the ring and lifts up the Ladder, setting it up in the middle of the ring but before he can begin to climb it Van Dam, who is now on his feet, pulls him away by his arm. Rob hits Wolfe with some right hands and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring before running up, jumping onto him, and hitting Wolfe with a Monkey Flip! Van Dam gets back to his feet and approaches the Ladder, beginning to climb it as he looks to end this one early and save his job.

However, Wolfe quickly gets back up and pulls Rob off the Ladder by his leg, knocking him down with a European Uppercut. Desmond hits Van Dam with several Stomps before running off the ropes and hitting RVD with a Knee Drop to the sternum. Wolfe then turns Rob over onto his stomach and climbs on top of him, applying a Camel Clutch. Desmond keeps Van Dam locked in the hold for several moments, approximately twenty seconds, until RVD manages to break out of his grasps and he then makes his way to a vertical base, holding onto Wolfe's legs, and hits him with an Electric Chair Drop! Rob gets to his feet and runs off the ropes, cartwheeling forward before hitting Wolfe with a Standing Moonsault! Van Dam gets back up and approaches the Ladder once again, beginning to climb it. RVD makes it three quarters of the way up until Wolfe gets back to his feet and pushes the Ladder forward into the ropes, Van Dam falling off and crashing down to the mat!

Wolfe picks up the Ladder and throws it out of the way, knowing that there's a good chance it's going to take a while to successfully retrieve the contract which is twenty feet in the air without being interrupted by RVD. He gets RVD up and Irish whips him into the corner, then walking towards him and hitting him with an elbow to the throat. Desmond runs to the opposite corner and jumps up to the second rope before jumping down and running back across the ring, going for a Running European Uppercut but Van Dam moves out of the way. Wolfe manages to stop himself from crashing into the turnbuckles, but when he turns around RVD kicks him in the mid-section and hits Wolfe with a Gutwrench Suplex! Rob gets to his feet and takes the Ladder from the corner of the ring, setting it up and beginning to climb it once again. Van Dam has been the only one so far to make any real advances towards trying to win this match in the early stages, but half-way up Desmond gets up and hits Rob with a blow to the back, knocking him off the Ladder.

RVD manages to land on his feet on the mat, but Wolfe gets him in a Hammerlock and subsequently transitions it into a DDT, planting Van Dam face-first on the canvas! Desmond gets to his feet and picks up the Ladder, slamming it shut and raising it in the air preparing to hit his opponent with it, but RVD rolls over onto his back and fights Wolfe off with some kicks to the mid-section. Wolfe drops the Ladder on the mat and Van Dam gets to his feet, kicking Desmond in the mid-section, applying a front facelock and hitting Wolfe with a Snap Suplex onto the Ladder! RVD gets back to his feet and looks around the Toledo Sports Arena before performing his thumb taunt as the crowd chant 'RVD!' Rob then runs off the ropes and rolls forward, but before he can hit the Rolling Thunder Wolfe sends Van Dam face-first into the Ladder with a Drop Toe Hold! RVD clutches his face in pain and Desmond gets to his feet, grinning and holding up the Fortune handsign to huge heat from the Toledo crowd. Wolfe looks down at his opponent and seems to get an idea, approaching Rob and grabbing him by his arms. Desmond places his foot on the back on Van Dam's neck, and then drives RVD face-first into the Ladder with a Curb Stomp!

Wolfe holds onto Rob's arms though, and drives RVD's face into the Ladder again with a Curb Stomp! Desmond then lets go of his arms and gets Van Dam, who is now busted open, to his feet. Wolfe Irish whips RVD into the ropes and hits him with an Inverted Atomic Drop, followed by a kick to the mid-section. Desmond then runs off the ropes and hits Van Dam with a Knee Lift, knocking him down to the canvas. Wolfe picks up the Ladder and sets it up in the middle of the ring, beginning to climb it and not looking like he's in any rush. Desmond teases the crowd by going up slowly and saying 'One rung... two rungs... three rungs' with a smirk on his face every time he climbs a rung. However, Van Dam gets back to his feet when Wolfe is three quarters of the way up there and he climbs to the top rope. With Wolfe's eyes set on the contract above the Ladder, RVD flies from the top rope and knocks Wolfe off the Ladder with a Flying Thrust Kick! The Ladder goes down with the Englishman and Van Dam brings it into the middle of the ring, then placing Wolfe on top of it. RVD says 'Let's try again' before performing his thumb taunt, running off the ropes and hitting Wolfe with the Rolling Thunder on the Ladder!

The crowd explodes with cheers and a bloodied Van Dam nods his head with a smile on his face before getting Desmond to his feet and unceremoniously throwing him through the ropes and out of the ring. RVD slowly picks up the Ladder and sets it up before beginning to climb it, already looking relatively tired from the effects of this match so far. Van Dam takes too long to climb to the top, because by the time he is near the top, Wolfe is back up and he brings a Kendo Stick into the ring, nailing RVD with a Kendo Stick shot to the back! Rob falls off the Ladder down to the mat and Desmond stands over Van Dam, holding it in the air as if he were RVD's fellow ECW alumni The Sandman, obviously taking a shot at RVD with that. Wolfe spins the Kendo Stick around in his fingers, before hitting Van Dam with another shot, this time to the mid-section! A careless Wolfe then breaks the Kendo Stick in half on his knee, throwing the remains out of the ring. Desmond turns Rob over onto his stomach and positions his arm on his back, grabbing his arm and rolling across his back, trying to hyperextend the arm of RVD.

Van Dam clutches his arm in pain and Wolfe gets him up to a vertical base. Desmond Irish whips Rob into the corner of the ring and then runs towards him, but RVD replies with a boot to the face. Wolfe staggers backwards and Van Dam walks towards him, Desmond going for a kick to the mid-section but RVD catches his leg and hits Wolfe with a Step-Over Spinning Wheel Kick! Rob gets back up and closes the Ladder, laying it on the ground near the corner and dragging Desmond on top of it. Van Dam then holds onto the ropes, facing away from Wolfe, and jumps to the top rope, immediately coming back off and hitting Wolfe with a Split-Legged Moonsault! RVD looks like that hurt him as well and he clutches his ribs as he gets back to his feet. Van Dam takes the Ladder from under Wolfe and sets it up in the middle of the ring, slowly beginning to climb it. However, when he is half-way up Desmond crawls towards the Ladder and begins to climb it himself opposite RVD. Rob waits for Wolfe to get to the top and when he does, the two of them begin to trade right hands. Desmond begins to gain the upper hand in the exchange, but when he goes to swing a wild right hand Van Dam blocks it, hits the Englishman with an elbow to the face, and slams Wolfe's face against the top of the Ladder!

Wolfe remains in that position, face-down on the top of the Ladder, and RVD looks around the crowd, performing his thumb taunt... before flipping over Wolfe and nailing him with a Sunset Flip Powerbomb off the top of the Ladder! The crowd explode with cheers and chant 'TNA! TNA! TNA!' as both competitors lie side-by-side on the canvas, Wolfe evidently hurting more than his opponent. Several moments later, Van Dam gets back to his feet and slowly approaches the corner of the ring, climbing to the top rope. RVD performs his thumb taunt for the crowd... before flying from the top rope, and nailing Wolfe with the Five-Star Frog Splash! It may be back to square one with both men once again down on the mat, but it's clear now that Van Dam has the advantage in this high-stakes Ladder Match. About thirty seconds later, RVD gets back to his feet and slowly rolls under the ropes out of the ring, searching under the ring... and revealing a Steel Chair! The crowd pop when Van Dam, a man who can do many things with a Chair, reveals that weapon and he brings it into the ring. RVD slams the Chair against the ground repeatedly, getting the crowd clapping along, as he eagerly waits for his arch-nemesis to get to his feet.

When Wolfe gets back up, Van Dam throws him the Chair, looking to go for the Van Daminator... but Wolfe steps out of the way, and then nails RVD with a Steel Chair shot to the skull! Van Dam crumbles to the mat and Desmond drops the Chair, dragging RVD into the corner of the ring. Wolfe approaches the middle of the squared circle and picks up the Chair again... running towards the corner and hitting RVD with his own move, the Chair Surf! The crowd boo Wolfe, who holds the Chair up in the air with a grin on his face before laying it down on the mat near the corner and getting Van Dam, who is now even more bloodied, to his feet. Desmond lifts RVD to the top rope and grabs hold of his neck... hitting Van Dam with the Tower of London on the Steel Chair! Wolfe slowly gets back up and looks at the contract twenty feet in the air, saying 'I'm coming for you now'... but before he can begin to climb the Ladder, Jeff Hardy runs down the ramp and enters the ring, kicking Wolfe in the mid-section, and nailing him with the Twist of Fate!

The crowd explodes with cheers as Hardy then climbs to the top rope, poses for the crowd, and hits Wolfe with the Swanton Bomb! Jeff gets to his feet and sees Chris Harris, James Storm and the new TNA Television Champion Matt Morgan running down the ramp, so he rolls out of the ring, jumps over the security rail and runs away with Harris, Morgan and Storm doing the same and going after him. Meanwhile, approximately half a minute later RVD slowly struggles to his feet, followed by Wolfe a few moments later. Van Dam hits him with some forearms followed by a Standing Spinning Heel Kick which sends Wolfe backwards, but as he goes backwards he tilts in between the ropes, charges forward and almost takes RVD's head off with the Jawbreaker Lariat! Both competitors lie on the canvas, and several moments later Wolfe pulls himself up with the ropes. He gets Van Dam to his feet and sets him up straight in the corner, then walking towards the Ladder. Desmond shuts the Ladder and lifts it up, running towards the corner and looking to drive the Ladder into RVD, but Rob moves out of the way.

Wolfe manages to stop himself from going into the turnbuckles, but when he turns around still holding onto the Ladder, Van Dam jumps onto the ropes, springboards off them and knocks Wolfe down with a Springboard Thrust Kick! Wolfe lies on the mat still holding onto the Ladder and RVD repositions him so he is lying on top of the Ladder. 'The Whole F'n Show' then slowly approaches the corner, climbing to the top rope. Van Dam performs his thumb taunt for the crowd, before flying from the top rope and hitting Wolfe with the Five-Star Frog Splash on the Ladder! Several moments later, RVD gets back up and rolls Desmond off the Ladder, picking it up and positioning it in the middle of the ring. Van Dam sees the Steel Chair in the corner and seems to get an idea, positioning Wolfe in a seated position the corner and moving the Ladder to the opposite corner of the ring. RVD picks up the Chair and climbs to the top of the Ladder with the crowd going nuts. Van Dam looks around the Toledo Sports Arena before taking a deep breath... and jumping from the top of the Ladder, flying across the ring and nailing Wolfe with the Van Terminator!!

Wolfe looks well and truly knocked out now after that and the crowd go wild, chanting 'Holy s**t!' as Van Dam lies on the mat in front of Wolfe, who has now been busted open as a result of that Van Terminator. RVD eventually gets to a vertical base and walks towards the Ladder, moving it towards the middle of the ring and then slowly beginning to climb it. Wolfe is not moving at all in the corner and Van Dam knows it, as he makes his way up the Ladder, getting to the top after what seems like a lifetime. RVD's eyes are set on the contract which is within his reach, but as a result he is unaware when the leader of Fortune, Ric Flair, runs down the ramp and enters the ring, pushing the Ladder over and sending Van Dam off and out of the ring! RVD goes crashing to the concrete floor outside the ring and the crowd are livid, chanting 'F**k you, Flair!' as 'The Nature Boy' lets out a loud 'Wooooo!' with a grin on his face before lifting Wolfe to his feet. Ric shakes him around until he is conscious again and a dazed Desmond looks at the Ladder before looking at RVD outside the ring and grinning. Wolfe ever-so slowly climbs up the Ladder and it takes him about twenty seconds to get to the top. Van Dam is now on his feet outside the ring, but before he can get back in... Wolfe takes down the contract! Wolfe has done it! He has defeated Rob Van Dam again, and as a result RVD is gone from TNA!

Desmond Wolfe def. Rob Van Dam in a Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match at 22:02; Rob Van Dam is now gone from TNA

Wolfe slowly repositions himself at the top of the Ladder and unclips the pen from the contract, signing on the dotted line to make it official. Desmond then holds the contract high in the air as the livid crowd heavily boo him, some throwing garbage into the ring out of anger, and Flair enters the ring with an ear-to-ear grin on his face. Wolfe slowly climbs down from the Ladder and Ric raises his hand in the air, the two of them embracing before the two of them leave the ring with the contract and head up the ramp at an extremely steady pace. They stop on the stage and Flair raises Wolfe's hand in the air once more, the camera zooming in on Desmond's signature on the contract, before they leave.

Mike Tenay: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! THIS IS- THIS IS- I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! RIC FLAIR JUST SCREWED ROB VAN DAM OUT OF THE MATCH, AND HIS JOB!

Mick Foley: As somebody who has been a close friend of Rob for a long time, seeing him lose his job like this... it's hard to watch, Mike.

Mike Tenay: DAMN YOU DESMOND WOLFE, DAMN YOU RIC FLAIR, DAMN YOU FORTUNE! YOU'VE RUINED THIS COMPANY! YOU'LL ALL GET WHAT'S COMING TO YOU!

Mick Foley: I've lost all respect for everybody in Fortune after seeing that, even Ric Flair, one of the best of all time. How can they live with themselves after costing somebody their job? Their passion? Their family security? How?

Mike Tenay: They don't care, none of them care! Their hearts are black! Rob Van Dam has lost his job tonight because of Fortune!

The camera cuts to the ring, where Rob Van Dam pulls himself up with assistance from the ropes. RVD looks around the ring before looking up the Ladder and seeing that the contract has gone, subsequently dropping to his knees. Van Dam buries his head in his hands as AJ Styles, D'Angelo Dinero, Samoa Joe, Stevie Richards and Taz all come to the ring and Mick Foley leaves the announce table to join them. When RVD is helped up, he is reduced to tears and he is consoled by his peers as he looks around and hears a deafening 'RVD!' chant. Rob shakes his head, refusing to believe that he has lost his job, and moments later he leaves the ring, trudging up the ramp with his head hung in grief. Van Dam stops on the stage and looks around the crowd once more, his eyes filled with tears, waving to the fans before disappearing behind the curtain as the pay per view goes off the air.

Default Re: Shock Presents TNA Wrestling: The Revolution

Victory Road Feedback


Much like with most the stuff in the section at this time, Iím a little out of the loop, so hopefully I donít look like a complete dumb ass.

The opening commentary was done pretty well, running down the whole card. Not a lot of people go past the main events with the opening commentary, but I prefer it the way you did it. Not only that, but it let me know whatís on the card for tonightís show. I like the fact that youíve thrown Wolfe/Van Dam as your main event as well, simply because itís probably the biggest feud youíve had going in this thread, and deserves this type of epic ending.

I like the idea to open with the four way elimination match, simply because with four teams involved itís sure to be rather explosive at times, and you always need an exciting match to kick off the show. The opening exchange between Helms and Max was pretty good, with a little bit of chain wrestling. It probably could have been written a little better, I donít really know how to explain it, it just seemed a little hard to understand what was happening at times, youíd probably have to check some of Szumiís matches to see what I mean. Besides that, I enjoyed the start. I really think you made Jeremy look dumb early on, locking in a Body Scissors this early in the contest. Anybody who thinks logically would understand that Helms has taken nowhere near enough punishment to be put into a submission hold for long, just really pointless. Plus, at the time, I felt as if the match was going at a nice, frantic pace, and whatever momentum it was building just seemed to disappear with this move simply not being where it should be. The exchange between Moore and Jeremy was pretty nice, getting things back on track and it lead to one of the main appeals in this type of match. I love the fact that anybody can tag anybody; it just adds an extra element to things, so to see Devon tag himself in made me a happy camper. Once a member of Team 3D got into the ring I expected the pace of the match to slow down a little, and it seemed like you were going for that, so I was surprised to see Homicide tag himself in so quickly. The cheap shot by Devon was nicely placed, adding to the excitement, as was Hernandez making the save, although Brother Ray not getting involved definitely makes him look like a bit of a pussy. I thought the way you set up Hernandezí Superman Dive was clever. You inserted an exciting spot into your match, whilst also showing great team work by having Homicide set it up perfectly. Brother Ray coming from behind and getting the advantage is a usual heel tactic, no problems there. Ray is also very vocal in the ring, so I like how you incorporated that into this match, with him verbally abusing the referee. I felt as if Hernandez eliminated Ray a little to easily. There was no real fight from Ray, and Devon wasnít doing anything, the fact that he couldnít make it to break up the fall seems silly, as The Border Toss isnít exactly a move that comes out of nowhere. Also, if Iím not mistaking, the three teams left are all faces, so I definitely expected Team 3D to at least last a little bit longer so you could utilize the typical face against heel in ring chemistry.

I enjoyed the beginning of Hernandez and Helms, because you made Hernandez look like an absolute monster, which he is. It was good to let Helms get a little bit of offense in, as you didnít want him to look really bad. The rest of the exchange up until Helms getting eliminated was just solid in ring action; I donít really have much to add. One disappointment is the lack of Moore in this match; itís almost as if you forgot about him. Maybe you donít like writing the guy, I donít know, but you definitely should have used him a little more than what you did.

Homicide and Jeremyís opening exchange was good, and this is around the time when a submission hold should be used. By now, the match has gone for awhile, and it is around the time when Jeremy would be tired enough to tap. Obviously Jeremy needed to make the tag, but I thought just a plain kick to the face was a lame way for him to be able to get all the way to the corner and tag in Max. I liked the build to the ending, with things slowly getting more and more frantic, before LAX just exploded. Definitely a good ending to what was a solid opener. The standing ovation for The Bucks was nice too, showing that they are probably still going to be sniffing around the tag team title scene.

The interview with Team TNA was nice, showing Danielsí arrogance, whilst also showing the differences he has with the rest of the team. Nice hype for tonightís match, and this could also be planting the seeds for what happens with Daniels and his title after the PPV.

This Knockoutís match is one Iím not really looking forward to, and after reading a fair bit of the match, nothing has changed. The offense didnít really seem to flow for me, as Love only knows about four moves. With that being said, one part of the match I really liked was the Body Scissors/Dragon Sleeper spot, would have looked really good. Love would have seemed like a human pretzel. I didnít really get why they went outside the ring, if all that was going to happen out there was a Clothesline. I know sheís a face, but Love needed to take advantage of being in a dominating position on the outside of the ring, the fact that she didnít was disappointing. Daffneyís counter of the Crossbody was cool too, a little unique, rather than the usual ďIím strong, I caught you and gave you a BackbreakerĒ routine. The ending came out of nowhere, which I liked in this situation, because I just wanted the match to be over. I donít want to sound overly harsh but even for a female wrestling match; this just wasnít enjoyable to read. By the way, it just seemed way to cheesy for Love to apologize to the crowd afterward, but thatís a really small thing.

Before I get into the match, Iíve never really heard of this World Cup thing before, but honestly, it seems rather pointless to have all these rounds, and a ranking system, if whoever wins the final match at the PPV is going to win the World Cup anyway. A rather pointless concept, but it suits TNA.

Now, onto the match itselfÖ The opening between Extreme Tiger and Kazarian was nice, opening a match like this the way it should be, very fast paced. The brawling and the entrances all seemed to go along solidly, nothing really special happening, with the highlight after one member from each team being Tiger skinning the cat. I think it was clever how as soon as team Mexico had the numbers advantage, you had Kiyoshi be eliminated. Of course the numbers advantage is important, but you made it seem even more important by having an elimination occur as soon as a team had the numbers advantage, smart booking. The typical arrogance of Daniels not wanting to help Kazarian was nice too, and I like the fact that he was able to eliminate Aero Star, it makes him look like a big shot. Up to entrant number nine things have continued to move along okay, but itís becoming more and more of a clusterfuck, and a bit of a hassle to read, tbh. One thing I like though is the constant tension between Daniels and Kazarian, even though there havenít been that many incidents, thereís obviously something there. I was surprised to see Young eliminated so early, but oh well. I enjoyed the momentary quickening of the pace when Amazing Red made his entrance also. Wow, now Kazarian and Daniels are working together eliminating Spears? Way to ruin my theory, and what it felt like the match was previously building. Obviously itís rather pointless for Daivari to try and fight with Team Mexico or TNA because heís outnumbered, but perhaps he and Okada could have formed some sort of unholy alliance until the numbers evened back up. Instead he left himself rather vulnerable by eliminating Okada which makes it look like he didnít think imo. In the next period of eliminations nothing really exciting happened, except for Daivari being eliminated. Team TNA look a little to dominant for my liking, so I was happy when Koslov was able to eliminate Amazing Red. The match was getting to the point where TNA were so dominant that it was becoming predictable and boring. I thought youíve gone about the ending rather cleverly having the numbers evened up with the unholy alliance that I was calling for earlier in the match. I guess I understand why you didnít use it earlier now, so no issues there. at Koslov eliminating his final Japanese ally, just seems stupid to leave himself outnumbered like that. Finally, the tension comes back with Daniels getting angry at Kazarian and then costing his own team the match. This continues Daniels and Kazarian whilst making Koslov look pretty damn strong. I definitely thought you booked this match cleverly, although it was really hard to keep in mind what was going on. It was way too much of a clusterfuck to read, so it didnít come out well in that way, but its enhanced things nicely.

Oh boy how I love the Motor City Machine GunsÖ I canít wait to get into this one. A nice start with Sabin one upping Williams. I really enjoyed the way you used Magnusí strength, by brutally countering the Tornado DDT attempt. A typical heel tactic by The British Invasion, with the illegal man going to town on Sabin on the outside. Whilst itís nothing special, sometimes the simple things are the most effective. I loved the combination between Sabin and Shelley, I remember the first time I saw that exact sequence of moves, I thought they were so awesome, and to be honest, not much has changed. The three Suplexes and then the Tigerbomb were simply brutal by Williams. The repetition of moves is something you donít see often, but when itís done at the right time, which I believe it was done here, it just makes the beat down the person is receiving seem a lot more full on. Sabinís fresh burst was pretty exciting stuff, fast paced as it should be, whilst the eventual turn back into the favor of the heels was orchestrated pretty damn well. The rest of the match was pretty solid, without being anything terrific, with the MCMG frenzied offense pretty much taking over the match. This was probably the best match so far on the show.

Matt Morgan interview was okay, pretty short, as expected on a PPV. He seemed intense enough which is good, although I didnít understand why heíd say you can just call me The Blueprint Matt Morgan, as Taz was already calling him that. It just seems pointless unless thatís a catchphrase of Morganís and I just donít know it.

The start of this match was good for mine, with you really putting Morgan over as a beast. At the same time, with the Drop Toe Hold, you showed that your champion can think his way out of uncomfortable situations, good stuff. Itís not a huge issue, but when Morgan was outside the ring, it just seems dumb that he wouldnít look at Dinero. Of course, it put him in position for your next move, but Iíve noticed a few times sometimes some of the things you have happen in your matches make the competitors look dumb. The constant domination of Morgan was good throughout, although I didnít like how Dinero got Morgan over the top rope with the first Clothesline. I think it would have felt better with the psychology of the match up if it took Dinero a few attempts to get him over. Dinerís opffense after this was nice though, until he tried to lift Morgan, but once again, it fits in nicely with the story youíre trying to tell. The rest of the match continued along nicely with the story, and I love the ending with Dinero fiddling with his kneepads pretty much costing him the match. Much like the matches above, this was another solid one.

The video package for Roode/Storm was nice. I love the idea of this feud and am kind of disappointed I missed it. The personal nature of this feud equals ratings though, so hopefully the match delivers.

The start of this match was always going to be Roode wanting to kill Storm, and Storm trying to get away, it just had to be. I donít get how Roode didnít see Storm hide behind the stairs though, since he was chasing him. Maybe you should have explained that one a little better. Once I got over the confusion though, I enjoyed all of the action which took place on the outside of the ring. I also like the way you put in a Suplex, itís just a normal wrestling move, but there guys are wrestlers, and then after that, it went straight back to the stiff style that street fights should be. I just think itís a really cool mix. Honestly, this street fight has been pretty damn good, although I felt maybe the garbage can spot and the table spot happened in a little to close to each other. The Sharpshooter sequence was really nice too, with Roode just not wanting to give up. The rest of the match was okay as well, although despite Roode going face first into the chair, I felt like the most brutal spots happening all in the beginning and there wasnít enough in the middle of the match. The ending was an awesome swerve with Harris showing up, capped off what was probably my favorite match of the night so far. A possible AMW reunion has me excited as well, good work.

Much like with the last video package, I like the way you do these with bits of your promos from weekly shows. Your promos look like theyíve gotten better, by the way. I also enjoyed Andersonís usual intro skit, exuding arrogance.

The start was just like a normal match up between Anderson and Styles, but the slap exchange was awesome. It shows Andersonís arrogance, as well as Styles being all fired up, really great stuff. One thing I thought you got mixed up as the contest went on, was when Styles nailed a Drop kick, he posed to the crowd before going for the pin, then a minute later when Anderson got Styles down he went for the cover straight away. It just seems like the psychology is a little off with that as Anderson is clearly the cockier of the two guys. The match flowed well enough from here, with Styles getting in a lot more offense then I thought he would this early on. I lolíd at Anderson giving the finger to the crowd on the outside of the ring. One thing you donít usually incorporate into your matches is emotion, and even though it was an action, it kind of shows us what Anderson is feeling, and I think thatís definitely somewhere you can improve with your full matches. I really liked the counter of the Flying Forearm Smash into a Drop Kick, I donít know why, but itís just something unexpected coming from Anderson, but it is still believable. I love the use of the Figure Four as well. It gives Anderson a new, deadly move, whilst also selling his relationship with Ric Flair. The slapping war that these two had was definitely something unexpected; I would have marked if that lead to the Mic Check. The cheap win for Anderson makes me think this one might still have some more legs yet. Honestly, this match was definitely your best match of the night so far wrestling wise, but I still enjoyed the Street Fight more.

The Flair interview was nice, rather short and sweet.

I preferred the Van Dam interview over the Flair one, simply because he alluded to the fact that he isnít his usual laid back self. Obviously he wouldnít be, but that means I expect to see some awesome high risk moves performed by RVD.

Much like the previous two matches, I really enjoyed the video package for the main event. I still think the Roode/Storm one was the best though.

The match started off decently, although I didnít like Wolfe going for the Headlock so early in the contest. I know itís somewhat part of his usual strategy, but I just felt you could have waited a little bit longer before going for it. It brings me back to what I said before about submission moves happening to early in the match. I was surprised to see a ladder brought into the ring so soon as well, although Iím not complaining about that. Whilst I once again donít agree with the Camel Clutch being used by Wolfe this early on, plus itís kind of pointless to use a submission hold in a ladder match. The only time I buy it is when it is somebody using their finisher to soften up the opponent, ala Chris Jericho with The Walls Of Jericho. With that being said, I liked the counter from the Camel Clutch into the Electric Chair Drop. It just felt weird reading Van Dam performing a Gut Wrench Suplex. If I remember correctly, this would be the first time Iíve ever seen him use that move. I was happy when the offense with the ladder started coming in, with the two Curb Stompís being absolutely brutal, terrific stuff there, imo. Since tonight most likely is going to be the Ďendí of Van Damís career; I found it ironic that Wolfe looked like The Sandman with the kendo stick. I donít know if you did this intentionally but it was a clever way to kind of reminisce on where Van Dam came from. The Sunset Flip Powerbomb is a nice spot to have in just about every ladder match; it always gets the crowd going. I was surprised to see the interference of Jeff Hardy. I know him and Van Dam are friends but I just really didnít expect it. It definitely added to the excitement of the match, with members of Fortune chasing Hardy away. Wolfe looks like an absolute beast, as after the Hardy interference, he still nails the Jawbreaker Lariat just moments later. The Van Terminator was always coming somewhere in the match, until Flair shows up. I was waiting for him to rear his ugly head sometime, but I didnít think heíd cost Van Dam the whole match. Definitely a questionable result, which makes me think that Van Dam will be back sooner than later. This match was probably up there as my favorite, along with the Street Fight.

Overall, the best way to describe this PPV would be solid. Whilst no match was necessarily bad, I think there are still a few things throughout that you need to work on when it comes to your match writing. Your best two matches were the gimmick matches, which shows that you need to get better with just straight wrestling matches as well. Once youíre able to fix these things, your solid matches will become good matches. With that out of the way, I thought the booking of this PPV went down pretty well, leaving you with a few things to continue Roode/Storm/Harris comes to mind, as well as whatís next for Desmond Wolfe.

I see that you couldn't really be stuffed writing a preview this week.

You've got three nice match ups set up for the show, as well as a Knockouts match, and we'll probably hear from Anderson and Wolfe, as well as AMW. You've left yourself a lot of stuff to run with after Victory Road, and it looks like you're going to run with it.

I'll be sure to check this show out.
