***CRUSH U UP***
The crowd erupts with cheers, as Samoa Joe walks out. With a white towel over his shoulders, Joe walks down the ramp and enters the ring, posing for the crowd. Tyler Black (who obviously won't get very far in this business ) is already in the ring.
1 - Samoa Joe
vs. Tyler Black
The bell rings, and Black and Joe lock up. Joe breaks the lock-up and goes for a clothesline, but Black ducks it and when Joe turns to face him, Black hits Joe with a knife-edge chop to the chest. Joe responds with a chop of his own, delivered so ferociously that it sends Black backpedaling into the corner of the ring. Joe walks towards the corner, but Black rolls out of it, ending up in the middle of the ring. Joe turns around and walks towards Black, who hits him with a kick to the thigh, before Joe responds with a STIFF kick to the thigh of his own!!
Joe hits Black with another kick to the same leg, which knocks the youngster down to the mat. Joe gets Black straight back up to his feet and wrenches his arm around. Joe then Irish whips Black into the ropes. Black comes back and ducks a clothesline attempt by Joe before running off the ropes again and hitting a shoulder block when he comes back. It does absolutely no damage to Joe, who doesn’t move a muscle and lets out a hearty roar. Black runs off the ropes again, but when he comes back Joe hits him with an inverted atomic drop, before running off the ropes and hitting Black with a RUNNING SINGLE-LEG DROPKICK!!
Joe springs back to his feet, runs off the ropes, and hits Black with a RUNNING SENTON!! Joe gets Black to his feet and takes him to the corner, where he hits him with a STIFF knife-edge chop to the chest that echoes throughout the iMPACT! Zone and brings a grimace to the face of Black. Joe then embarks on a rapid flurry of chops to the chest and slaps to the face, getting the crowd excited, until Black sinks down to a seated position. Joe FACEWASHES Black, driving his boot into his face repeatedly, until walking away into the middle of the ring, where he is greeted by huge cheers from the crowd.
“The Samoan Submission Machine” turns back towards Black, sizing him up before running towards the corner and going for a boot to the face, but Black manages to just barely roll out of the way. Black gets back to his feet and hits Joe, stood in the corner, with a couple of forearms to the face, before taking a few steps back. Black then runs forward… INTO A STJOE!! Joe plants Black on the back of his head on the canvas, and gets him straight back up, setting him up against the turnbuckles. Joe hits Black with a handful of big forearms, FOLLOWED BY A CCS ENZUIGIRI!!
Joe then lifts Black to the top rope, folds him up, lifts him onto his shoulder, walks into the middle of the ring, AND NAILS BLACK WITH THE MUSCLE BUSTER!! Joe isn’t done though, sitting Black up, AND LOCKING HIM IN THE COQUINA CLUTCH!! Black lasts about three seconds in the devastating hold, BEFORE TAPPING OUT!!
Winner - Samoa Joe @ 2:47.
Joe releases the hold, gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd.
Samoa Joe had a big night this past Sunday at Lockdown, securing the victory for Sting’s Warriors in Lethal Lockdown against Planet Jarrett, and he picks up another convincing victory tonight on iMPACT!’s debut on Thursday nights!!
Joe’s the hottest star in professional wrestling today, Mike, and for anybody who’s never seen him before, that was just a little TASTE of what “The Samoan Submission Machine” is capable of!!
Joe breaks away from the referee, and is about to leave the ring…
… WHEN JEFF JARRETT AND MONTY BROWN WALK OUT!!
And speaking of Planet Jarrett, here comes ‘The King of the Mountain’ himself, Jeff Jarrett, along with ‘The Alpha Male’ Monty Brown!! We’ll see what they have on their minds, when we return to iMPACT!!
Brown and Jarrett stand on the stage, both with their hands on their hips, glaring at Joe before making their way down the ramp as we go to a commercial break.
Back on iMPACT!, Jarrett and Brown step into the ring, taking microphones and standing across the ring from Joe.
Joe, Joe, Joe… you’ve got a lot of nerve, showin’ your face in… (glances at Brown) OUR
ring after last Sunday night.
~ The crowd cheer after Jarrett references the victory for Sting’s Warriors in Lethal Lockdown.
Last Sunday at Lockdown… was supposed to be Sting’s goin’ away party. It was supposed to be the night… where Planet Jarrett put Sting out of business for good. And that woulda' happened… if it wasn’t for you, Joe.
~ Cheers from the crowd.
‘Cause of you
… Sting thinks he won last Sunday.
~ Jarrett and Brown both shake their heads, disagreeing with that statement.
But y’see, Joe… Sting didn’t win last Sunday. He didn’t beat me, he didn’t beat Jeff and he didn’t beat America’s Most Wanted. Hell, the last time Sting tried to face me and Jeff like a man… he felt the POUUUUUUNCEEE!!
~ Heat from the crowd.
Sting told everybody who would listen that Lockdown was gonna be the night where he got his revenge on Planet Jarrett, but yet it was you
, Joe, not Sting, who choked out James Storm from behind!!
~ A smirk appears on Joe’s face.
Yeah, yeah, you like that, don’t ya', Joe? Brings a SMILE
to your face, doesn’t it?
~ Joe, enjoying this, continues to smile.
WELL DON’T GET USED TO IT!! You didn’t prove ANYTHING
in Lethal Lockdown, ‘cause take away the steel chairs, the kendo sticks, the trashcans, and you’re STILL not in the same league as ‘The Alpha Male’ or ‘The King of the Mountain’!!
~ Boos from the crowd.
And you’re gonna be sorry that you ever SET FOOT
inside that six sides of steel, ‘cause the fact of the matter is, if you’re with Sting… you’re AGAINST Planet Jarrett!!
~ Boos from the crowd, as Jarrett nods in agreement. Joe takes a microphone.
~ Brown, off the microphone, says "Not even close".
Y'know what? I don't care, 'cause I've got somethin' to say, and if you don't keep your mouths shut… I'll choke both
of you out just like I did to James Storm at Lockdown.
~ Huge pop from the crowd, as Brown and Jarrett laugh.
Is that a threat
, big guy?
You're damn right it is, slapnuts.
~ More cheers from the crowd.
Lemme' make two
things clear to you. Last Sunday… I beat all four
of your asses with my own bare hands.
~ Cheers from the crowd.
The steel chairs… the kendo sticks… the trashcans… I didn’t need any of ‘em. ‘Cause last Sunday… the most dangerous weapon inside that steel cage was me.
~ Big pop from the crowd.
And number two… I’m not “with” Sting.
~ Mixed reaction from the crowd.
I was on Sting’s side in Lethal Lockdown for one reason and one reason only… so I could destroy Planet Jarrett.
~ Cheers from the crowd.
And the fact that the two of you are stood in this ring right now… tells me I've still got work to do.
~ Big pop from the crowd.
Look at it whatever way you want, Joe… but ya' might have to take a rain check with your lil' crusade, 'cause right now… you’re outnumbered.
Jarrett and Brown look at each other, before dropping their microphones…
… AND ATTACKING JOE!!
IT’S A TWO-ON-ONE ASSAULT ON SAMOA JOE!!
Jarrett and Brown ambush Joe, looking to make him pay for last Sunday at Lockdown, BUT JOE FIGHTS BACK, HITTING JARRETT AND BROWN WITH RIGHT HANDS!!
YOU CAN’T KEEP ‘THE SAMOAN SUBMISSION MACHINE’ DOWN, MIKE!!
Brown and Jarrett are sent backpedalling by Joe’s rights, and Brown comes right back, charging towards Joe, but Joe throws Brown into the corner. Joe unloads on Brown with rights in the corner, but his assault is quickly brought to an end by Jarrett, who hits Joe with a clubbing blow to the back. Brown moves out of the corner and now it’s Joe trapped in the corner by Brown and Jarrett, who beat him down with right hands and stomps…
… WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT IN THE iMPACT! ZONE!!!!
COULD IT BE??!!
I THINK SO!!
The crowd roar with cheers as the iMPACT! Zone is shrouded in darkness. Moments later, they come back on…
… AND STING IS STOOD IN THE RING!!!!
IT IS!! IT'S STING!!!!
Sting, wearing his trenchcoat over his ring attire with his signature black baseball bat in hand, stands behind Brown and Jarrett, who stop attacking Joe and slowly turn around to face Sting, almost jumping out of their skin when they see him. They have an extended staredown with Sting…
… UNTIL STING POINTS THE BAT AT JARRETT AND BROWN!!
JARRETT AND BROWN ARE IN TROUBLE NOW, MIKE!!
As soon as he does so, Jarrett flees, rolling out of the ring and retreating up the ramp to boos from the crowd. Brown looks at Jarrett in confusion, asking him where he’s going, while Joe walks up to behind Brown, turns him around…
… AND HITS BROWN WITH A CCS ENZUIGIRI!!
OH AND JOE JUST NAILS
MONTY BROWN WITH THE ENZUIGIRI!!
Joe gets straight back up, grabbing Brown and throwing him into the corner of the ring. Joe then lifts Brown to the top rope, lifts him onto his shoulder, walks into the middle of the ring…
… AND NAILS BROWN WITH THE MUSCLE BUSTER!!!!
MUSCLE BUSTER TO MONTY BROWN!!!!
The crowd goes wild and Jarrett, outside the ring, places his hands on his head in despair as Joe gets back to his feet, looking down at Brown, before directing his gaze at Jarrett. Jarrett violently shakes his head, holding his hands up as he backs further up the ramp until he is out of sight. Joe then slowly turns around, coming face-to-face with Sting.
Not the first time we’ve seen Samoa Joe and Sting face-to-face!!
They stare each other down for a few moments, until Joe turns around and leaves the ring as his music hits, whilst a contemplative Sting stands in the ring over the motionless Brown.
*Backstage - Interview Area*
Shane Douglas is with AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels.
I’m here with ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles and ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels, and fellas, I never thought I’d see the day where the two of you were on the same side, but we saw it last week against America’s Most Wanted, we saw it this past Sunday in Lethal Lockdown against Planet Jarrett, and tonight we see you join forces again… this time, with a shot at the NWA World Tag Team Championships on the line.
You can thank Jim Cornette for that, Shane, because it wasn’t my idea, and I’m sure it wasn’t AJ’s either, but it looks like our Director of Authority wants to see AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels team up again tonight, and maybe even at Sacrifice too against Generation Next for those NWA World Tag Team Championships. Why? I don’t know. Maybe he wants to know who’s better, me or AJ… although I think we all know the answer to that
~ Styles scoffs in response to Daniels' statement.
~ Daniels turns to face Styles, and they have a staredown, with Douglas holding the microphone in between them.
Yeah, that’s right.
~ Daniels breaks the staredown, stepping backwards.
But y’know what, Shane, let’s put that aside, because I don’t know about you, AJ… but I’m not exactly Generation Next’s biggest fan. Alex Shelley is carrying around that X Division Championship, that if it wasn’t for his buddies Austin Aries and Roderick Strong, would still be around MY
waist!! And Austin and Roderick… just so happen to be the NWA World Tag Team Champions. They cost me my
championship, so after we win tonight and go on to Sacrifice on May 14th… me and AJ… are gonna take theirs.
Your thoughts on that, AJ?
Well, Shane… that’s the gospel… accordin’ to The Phenomenal Angels.
Styles and Daniels both smirk, having given themselves a team name, before walking out of the picture.

2 - World X Cup; Round One
Team Mexico (Incognito & Magno) vs. Team USA (Chris Sabin & Sonjay Dutt)
Dutt and Incognito get us started, locking up. Incognito applies a standing headlock. After a few moments in the hold, Dutt drives Incognito backwards into the ropes before pushing him across the ring into the opposite ropes. Incognito comes back off the ropes and Dutt comes into the middle of the ring, going for a hip toss, but Incognito floats over onto his other side and hits Dutt with a hip toss of his own. Incognito grabs hold of Dutt’s legs, but Sonjay kicks him backwards into the ropes. Incognito comes back and gets taken down to the mat with a drop toe hold from Dutt. Dutt applies a headlock on the floor, and brings Incognito up to his feet, with the headlock still locked in.
Incognito slips out of it and applies a hammerlock to Dutt. Dutt slips out of it, puts himself in a wheelbarrow position in front of Incognito and elevates himself up, before twisting himself around and hitting Incognito with a WHEELBARROW ARM DRAG!! Both men get back to their feet and Incognito runs at Dutt, who takes his legs out from underneath him before executing a jack-knife pin, the first cover attempt of the match:
Incognito kicks out. Both men get back to their feet and Dutt rolls underneath a clothesline attempt from Incognito, before running off the ropes. Dutt comes back and Incognito scoops him up, but Dutt reverses it into a TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN!! Dutt gets up and gets Incognito up, taking him to the corner where Chris Sabin is stood. Dutt tags Sabin into the match and Sabin enters the ring, immediately flooring Incognito with a snapmare, followed by a STIFF kick to the back!! Sabin gets Incognito to his feet and hits him with a few chops to the chest, before Irish whipping him forward into the corner.
Sabin runs towards the corner, but Incognito lifts himself up into the air with the ropes and pushes himself backwards, landing on his feet behind Sabin. Sabin turns around and Incognito kicks him in the mid-section, places his head in between his legs, hooks his arms, lifts him up and hits Sabin with a DOUBLE-UNDERHOOK SUPLEX!! Incognito gets Sabin up and takes him to the corner where Magno is stood. Incognito lifts Sabin up and plants him on the mat, before Magno hits him with a SLINGSHOT ROLLING SENTON!! Magno makes the cover:
Sabin kicks out. Magno gets Sabin to his feet and wrenches his arm around, applying a wrist lock. A few moments later, Sabin rolls forward and kips back up, hitting Magno with a kick to the back of the legs that takes the Mexican down to the mat. Sabin goes for an elbow drop, but Magno rolls out of the way. Both men get back to their feet and Sabin grabs Magno, twisting him around in position for a neckbreaker, but Magno slips out of it, turns around, grabs Sabin and goes for a back suplex. However, Sabin flips backwards and lands on his feet behind Magno, and as soon as Magno turns around Sabin jumps up, wraps his legs around his head and hits him with a HURRICANRANA, sending Magno through the ropes and out of the ring!!
As Magno slowly begins to get back to his feet on the outside, Sabin runs off the ropes and charges across the ring, looking to go high-risk. Sabin encounters a roadblock in the form of Incognito, who makes his way across the ring apron to stand in Sabin’s way, but Sabin knocks Incognito off the apron with a RUNNING FOREARM SMASH, sending Incognito into Magno as both men fall down to the floor!! Dutt enters the ring, joining Sabin. The duo wait for Incognito and Magno to get back to their feet on the outside before running off the ropes, charging across the ring, AND FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES, TAKING OUT INCOGNITO AND MAGNO WITH STEREO SUICIDE DIVES!! The crowd go wild, chanting “TNA!”, as we go to a commercial break.
Back from the break, Dutt and Incognito are in the corner of the ring. Dutt hits Incognito with a handful of knife-edge chops to the chest, each drawing a “woooo” from the crowd. Dutt then takes a couple of steps back before charging towards the corner, but Incognito lifts him up and over the top rope. Dutt manages to land on his feet on the ring apron, and when Incognito turns to face him, Dutt hits him with a forearm to the face, sending him backpedaling into the middle of the ring. Dutt then jumps onto the ropes and springboards off them, flying in the direction of Incognito, but Incognito catches him as he comes down with an inverted atomic drop, bringing Dutt down to one knee, before clocking him with an ENZUIGIRI!! Incognito makes the cover:
NO!! Sabin enters the ring and breaks up the pin!! Sabin is sent back to his corner by the referee, as Incognito gets Dutt to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner where Magno is stood. Incognito runs at Dutt, but Dutt lifts himself up into the air with the ropes and boots Incognito in the face with both feet, sending him staggering backwards. Magno, on the apron, tries to throw a right hand, but Dutt ducks it and hits Magno with a dropkick, knocking him off the apron and down to the floor!! Dutt runs at Incognito, rolling underneath a clothesline attempt. Incognito turns around to face Dutt, who hits him with a FACEBREAKER KNEE SMASH, followed by a JUMPING NECKBREAKER!!
Dutt heads to the corner where Sabin is stood and tags in Sabin, before climbing to the top rope, AND HITTING INCOGNITO WITH A MOONSAULT DOUBLE-FOOT STOMP!! Dutt gets back up and runs to the corner where Magno is now back on the apron, knocking him off as Sabin enters the ring. Sabin gets Incognito up, lifts him onto his shoulders, AND NAILS INCOGNITO WITH THE CRADLE SHOCK!! Sabin makes the cover:
Winners - Team USA @ 7:18.
Sabin gets to his feet, and he and Dutt have their hands raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd, having picked up a point for Team USA.
Team USA off to a great start in the 2006 World X Cup, Chris Sabin and Sonjay Dutt picking up one point with that first-round victory over Team Mexico’s Incognito and Magno!!
It’s good to have it back, isn’t it, Mike?
You got that right, DW!! We've got just over two more weeks until the World X Cup comes to a head on May 14th at Sacrifice, live on pay-per-view, where we’ll see TWO huge third-round matches, with Team Canada Captain, Petey Williams, facing Team Mexico captain, Shocker, and our Team USA captain, the TNA X Division Champion Alex Shelley, squaring off against the Team Japan captain, the legendary Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger!!
Two awesome matches, Mike!! Three points will go to the winners of those matches, and then later on in the night, in the fourth and final round, we’ll have ourselves a GAUNTLET match, featuring all four members of all four teams!! Whoever is the last man in the ring, their team gets five points, and may well win the World X Cup!!
*Backstage - Planet Jarrett’s Locker Room*
Jeff Jarrett, America’s Most Wanted and Gail Kim are in the Planet Jarrett locker room, sat down and conversing.
You just gotta forget about what happened last Sunday, alright? Sting and Joe ain’t your problem, me and Monty will handle that. You just gotta focus on bringin’ them NWA World Tag Team titles back where they belong.
You got it.
Suddenly, MONTY BROWN storms in, breathing heavily and holding the back of his neck.
There he is!! Where ya'-
SHUT UP!! What the hell was that out there, huh?! Leavin’ me on my own with Sting and Joe?!
Monty, I’m sorry, I thought you-
I mean, hell, I shouldn’t even be SURPRISED!!
This is Planet JARRETT
after all!! This is YOUR
world, we’re all just livin’ in it, right?!
Save it, man. I’m done.
~ Brown turns around and leaves the room, as Jarrett shakes his head.
You could give him another watch?
Jarrett sighs, burying his head in his hands.
*Cut to Video*
The video begins with the GENERATION NEXT logo flashing across the screen, behind text which reads "THE NEXT FILES" and accompanied by music that sounds a lot like The X-Files theme. We see shots of ALEX SHELLEY, AUSTIN ARIES, RODERICK STRONG and "special guest star" KEVIN NASH, all accompanied by their names appearing on the screen. The intro concludes with the message "THE FUTURE IS NOW", before cutting to a table in an apartment, which all three members of Generation Next, along with Nash, are sat around, the NWA World Tag Team Championships resting on the table in front of Aries and Strong, as the title of this instalment, "MEN OF STEEL", appears on the screen.
Alex Shelley: Thursday Night Football. Thanksgiving. The Office.
Roderick Strong: I love The Office.
Kevin Nash: Not as much as me.
Alex Shelley: We all do. The point is, all of these things happen on Thursdays. And now… you can add TNA iMPACT! to that list, every Thursday night at 11/10 CT on Spike TV.
Shelley turns to the camera, putting his thumb up with a forced grin on his face.
Alex Shelley: Alright, cheap plug aside, which don't worry, we WILL get paid for… y'know what, that's a great idea, we should get sponsors on this show! I mean, we make enough money as it is, but y'know, we-
Kevin Nash: The Next Files, brought to you by George Foreman Grills. I've got sixteen of 'em. I don't use the one I burned my foot on, though.
Aries, Shelley and Strong cringe after that statement.
Austin Aries: Brought to you by Electrolux. Nothing sucks like Electrolux!
Roderick Strong: Brought to you by Victoria's Secret.
Everyone smiles, liking that suggestion.
Alex Shelley: You wouldn't believe how many female fans we have. I was getting coffee with George Clooney the other day, no idea how he got my number but I let it slide… but anyway, four smokin' hot girls come over, I mean, the worst of them was a nine… and they all wanna talk to me. They wanna know what sports I played in high school, Roddy had for breakfast this morning, if Austin has any allergies, if Kev is into younger women…
Kevin Nash: I am.
Nash winks at the camera.
Alex Shelley: Pretty awkward for George, but worth it… what was I talking about before?
Austin Aries: Thursdays.
Alex Shelley: Right, thanks, A-Double. As great as it is that we’re changing nights, let’s just take a moment to think about the things that have stayed the same, such as… I don’t know… the fact that we’re still the greatest group in all of professional wrestling, and we’ve still got the championships to prove it.
Austin Aries: But wait, I thought we were all supposed to lose at Lockdown, since we were in steel cage matches, and we can’t beat anybody by ourselves?
After a few moments of silence, everyone starts laughing.
Austin Aries: But seriously, guys… people are idiots.
Everyone nods in agreement.
Kevin Nash: Y’know what… forget Superman. You guys are the REAL men of steel. The SIX sides of steel!! GIVE YOURSELVES A ROUND OF APPLAUSE!!
Everyone at the table applauds for a few moments.
Alex Shelley: Oh, uh, sorry to end things on a sour note, Kev, but I couldn’t get you on the World X Cup team. I told Cornette how much you wanted to be on the team, I showed him your 720 splash on the tape, but he was being a real wet sandwich.
Kevin Nash: Pfft. No limits my ass.
Nash shakes his head in disgust, before the camera cuts to a black screen, with Shelley, Aries, Strong and Nash listed as executive producers in that order in white writing. That is followed by a picture of the four of them sat at the table together smiling, with the text "N.A.S.S. PRODUCTIONS" in front of it in white writing.

3 - Main Event; #1 Contenders’ Four-Way Elimination Tag Team Match
America’s Most Wanted w/Gail Kim vs. The Latin American Exchange w/Konnan vs. The Phenomenal Angels vs. Team 3D
The Latin American Exchange and Team 3D get us started, and it’s Brother Devon and Homicide in the ring. Devon and Homicide lock up, and Devon shows his strength, outmuscling Homicide and driving him backwards, so Homicide breaks out of the lock-up and hits Devon with a kick to the mid-section. Homicide applies a standing headlock. A few moments later, Devon pushes Homicide away into the ropes. Homicide comes back and hits Devon with a shoulder block, but Devon stays on his feet!! Homicide is set off by this, as he slaps his chest and shouts at Devon in Spanish before throwing a right hand, but Devon blocks it and hits back with one of his own, followed by a few more.
Devon goes for an Irish whip into the ropes, but Homicide reverses it into one of his own. Devon comes back and knocks Homicide down with a shoulder block of his own. Devon then runs off the ropes, jumping over Homicide who flips over onto his chest, before running off the ropes again. Devon comes back and Homicide goes for a back elbow, but Devon ducks it, kicks Homicide in the mid-section, grabs him by the waist, and hits Homicide with a GUTWRENCH SUPLEX!! Devon gets up, moves across the ring to where Homicide landed and gets him to his feet.
Devon Irish whips Homicide into the corner of the ring before running at him, but “The Notorious 187” greets him with a boot to the face, sending Devon staggering away. Homicide quickly comes up behind Devon, grabs him by the neck, and hits him with a JUMPING NECKBREAKER!! Homicide gets to his feet and talks some trash to Devon in Spanish as he hits him with some stomps to the mid-section. Homicide gets Devon to his feet and takes him to the corner where Hernandez is stood. Homicide tags Hernandez into the match and Hernandez enters the ring, immediately delivering a knee to the mid-section of Devon.
Hernandez follows up with a clubbing blow to the back, knocking Devon down to the mat. Hernandez gets Devon back to his feet and hits him with a STIFF chop to the chest, sending the veteran staggering away. Hernandez sets Devon up against the turnbuckles and wears him down with some shoulder thrusts to the mid-section. Hernandez brings Devon into the middle of the ring and puts him in a gutwrench position before lifting him up onto his shoulder, but Devon is able to slip off and land on his feet behind him. Hernandez turns around and Devon wraps his arms around him, BEFORE THROWING THE BIG MAN OVER HIS HEAD WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!!
Devon gets back to his feet moments later and gets Hernandez up, taking him to the corner where Ray is stood. Ray enters the ring, and he and Devon both Irish whip Hernandez into the ropes, and when he comes back they hit him with a DOUBLE HIP TOSS!! Devon climbs out onto the ring apron, as Ray takes over. Hernandez gets back to his feet moments later, and Ray grabs him by the head with his left hand, before hitting him with a right bionic elbow. Ray follows up with two more, before performing some theatrics and then knocking Hernandez down with a FOURTH BIONIC ELBOW!! Ray makes the cover:
Hernandez kicks out. Ray gets Hernandez back up and goes for an Irish whip, but Hernandez reverses it into one of his own, sending Ray into the ropes. Ray comes back and Hernandez goes for a clothesline, but Ray ducks it, moves behind Hernandez and applies a full-nelson, looking for the Bubba Bomb. Before he can hit it though, Hernandez slips out of it, moves behind Ray and lifts him up, hitting him with an atomic drop, before running off the ropes in front of him, and hitting Ray with a FLYING SHOULDER BLOCK!!
Hernandez gets Ray back up and puts him in the gutwrench position before lifting him up and getting him in position for the Border Toss. However, Ray slips out of his grasps, and when Hernandez turns around to face him, Ray rocks him with some right hands. Ray then runs off the ropes… WHEN HIS FOOT IS GRABBED BY KONNAN!! Ray’s progress is stopped by the LAX leader at ringside, and Ray turns around, berating Konnan who shouts back at him in Spanish. While the referee is busy reprimanding Konnan… HERNANDEZ LOW-BLOWS RAY!!
Hernandez then brings Ray into the middle of the ring and lifts him back up like he did before, holding onto his arms behind his back, BEFORE HITTING RAY WITH THE BORDER TOSS!! Meanwhile, Devon tries to enter the ring and protest to the referee about LAX’s dirty tactics, prompting Homicide to enter the ring, run towards Devon, and knock him off the ring apron!! Hernandez makes the cover:
ELIMINATED - TEAM 3D @ 5:20.
Team 3D are the first to go, thanks to the underhanded tactics of LAX, and Devon is furious, eventually being joined by an equally-livid Ray as they reluctantly depart. Christopher Daniels enters the ring and starts off strong, immediately targeting Hernandez with a flurry of forearms to the face. Daniels then runs off the ropes, but when he comes back Hernandez lifts him in the air in a military press position, before unceremoniously dropping Daniels to the ground, sending him crashing into the canvas!! Hernandez hits Daniels with a couple of stomps, before getting him up and taking him to the corner where Homicide is stood.
Hernandez tags Homicide in and Homicide enters the ring, Hernandez holding Daniels in place for Homicide to deliver a kick to the mid-section. Homicide hits Daniels with some knife-edge chops to the chest before Irish whipping him into the ropes. Daniels comes back and Homicide bends over, looking to go for a back body drop. “The Fallen Angel” anticipates it though, and hits Homicide with a kick to the face, returning him to an upright position, before hitting Homicide with a STO!! Daniels gets Homicide back up and hits him with some forearms to the face, before Irish whipping him into the corner. Daniels follows Homicide into the corner, and hits him with a RUNNING HIGH KNEE to the face!! Homicide staggers out of the corner and Daniels lifts him up from behind, hitting Homicide with a SPIN-OUT POWERBOMB!! Daniels makes the cover:
No!! Homicide kicks out!! Daniels gets Homicide to his feet and lifts him up for a scoop slam, but Homicide slips off his shoulder. Daniels turns around and Homicide goes for a kick to the mid-section, but Daniels catches his leg. Daniels spins Homicide around three-hundred-and-sixty degrees before kicking him in the mid-section and hooking his arms, getting him in position for the Angel’s Wings. However, Homicide slips out of it, grabs Daniels, AND THROWS HIM OVER HIS HEAD WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX!!
Homicide gets back to his feet and walks over to Daniels, hitting him with a leg drop. Homicide sits Daniels up and hits him with a handful of chops to the back, before capping it off with a kick to the back!! Homicide gets Daniels to his feet and applies a front facelock. Homicide lifts Daniels up into the air for a suplex, but Daniels manages to slip out of it and land on his feet behind Homicide. “The Notorious 187” turns around and Daniels hits him with two forearms to the face, followed by a standing side slam. Daniels then points to the top rope and he heads to the corner, jumping to the second rope and then to the top rope before going for the BEST MOONSAULT EVER… but Homicide rolls out of the way!!
Fortunately for Daniels, he manages to land on his feet. Homicide gets up and runs at him with a clothesline, but Daniels rolls underneath it and ends up in the corner where AJ Styles is stood, tagging Styles in. AJ heads across the apron and jumps onto the ropes, before springboarding off them and flying through the air, HITTING HOMICIDE WITH A SPRINGBOARD FLYING FOREARM SMASH!! Styles gets back to his feet and slaps his chest, getting himself fired up as the crowd react with loud cheers. Meanwhile, Homicide gets back to his feet and runs at AJ, who steps aside and throws Homicide into Hernandez on the apron, knocking Hernandez off the apron and down to the floor!!
Homicide looks over the ropes and down at Hernandez in shock, when Styles rolls him up with a schoolboy!! Instead of pinning him though, AJ grabs hold of both of Homicide’s legs, stands up, hooks his arms with his legs, AND NAILS HOMICIDE WITH THE STYLES CLASH!! Styles rolls Homicide over and makes the cover:
ELIMINATED - THE LATIN AMERICAN EXCHANGE @ 8:36.
LAX are eliminated!! Homicide slowly rolls out of the ring and we’re now down to two: America’s Most Wanted and The Phenomenal Angels. AMW quickly make their presence felt as James Storm enters the ring, attacking Styles just as he is getting back to his feet and knocking him back down to the mat in the process. Storm unloads on AJ with several stomps before dropping to his knees and pummeling Styles with right hands to the face. Storm gets Styles back to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. “The Cowboy” runs at AJ, but gets an elbow to the face, sending him backpedaling.
Styles then climbs to the top rope, but is soon joined by Storm, who climbs to the second rope. Storm hits AJ with some right hands, and Styles retaliates with some of his own. They continue to exchange on the top rope until AJ delivers an elbow to the mid-section of Storm, BEFORE SUNSET FLIPPING OVER HIM, AND DRIVING STORM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A POWERBOMB!! Styles makes the cover:
Harris enters the ring and breaks up the pin!! Harris beats down AJ with some stomps until he is forced back to his corner by the referee. Styles is the first back to his feet, and he gets Storm up. AJ hits Storm with some chops to the chest before running off the ropes, but when he comes back Storm lifts him up, AND NAILS STYLES WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER!! Storm makes the cover:
This time it’s Daniels who breaks up the pin!! Storm makes some threatening remarks to Daniels as he is sent back to his corner by the referee, before turning his attention back to Styles. Storm gets AJ back to his feet and holds him in a headlock with his left arm, as he uses his right hand to hit Styles with repeated blows to the face. Storm then runs off the ropes, and AJ lies on his front on the mat as Storm jumps over him and runs off the ropes again. Storm comes back off the ropes and Styles springs back to his feet, HITTING STORM WITH A MOONSAULT DROPKICK!!
AJ gets back up and pumps his fists to cheers from the crowd. Meanwhile, Storm crawls towards his corner and tags Harris into the match, and when Styles turns around, Harris enters the ring, charges forward, AND ALMOST TAKES AJ’S HEAD OFF WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! The cheers in the crowd are silenced as Styles is folded inside out by Harris’ clothesline, and Harris gets back to his feet, slapping his chest and mocking AJ by striking his signature pose, which draws heat from the crowd. Harris grabs Styles’ legs, puts his right foot in between them, crosses his legs, turns him over, AND LOCKS AJ IN THE SHARPSHOOTER!!
Styles is in a lot of pain in the hold, evident by the look on his face, as Harris shouts at him to tap out. The crowd are firmly behind “The Phenomenal One”, chanting his name, and eventually, after several moments, AJ manages to edge his way across the ring, AND MAKE IT TO THE ROPES!! The crowd rejoice, but Harris is furious, only letting go on the referee’s count of four and then pummeling Styles with stomps to the back. Harris grabs AJ by the legs again and tries to drag him back into the middle of the ring, but Styles kicks him in the face, sending “Wildcat” backpedaling.
AJ rolls underneath the ropes and out onto the ring apron. As Harris turns around, Styles jumps onto the ropes and springboards off them, flying through the air and going for a crossbody… BUT HARRIS CATCHES AJ!! Harris grins when he realizes the position he is in, and swings Styles around, going for the CATATONIC, but AJ manages to slip away and land on his feet behind Harris. Harris turns to Styles and goes for a clothesline, but AJ ducks it, AND NAILS HARRIS WITH THE PEL… KICK!! Harris stays up, but is visibly groggy, as Styles gets back to his feet, jumps onto the middle rope, and moonsaults onto Harris, applying an inverted front facelock before his feet touch the mat, BEFORE HITTING HARRIS WITH THE STYLIN’ DDT!!
The crowd go wild, chanting “TNA!”, as Styles crawls towards the ropes and uses them to pull himself up. AJ gets Harris to his feet and places his head in between his legs, striking his signature pose as he motions for the Styles Clash. However, Storm enters the ring, looking to stop him, but Styles sees him coming, pushing Harris away and ducking a clothesline attempt from Storm. Storm runs into Daniels, who enters the ring, kicks Storm in the mid-section, hooks his arms, lifts him up, AND NAILS STORM WITH THE ANGEL’S WINGS!! Storm rolls out of the ring and out of sight, as Daniels makes his way back to the ring apron.
AJ turns his attention back to Harris, who greets him with a knee to the mid-section. Harris Irish whips Styles into the ropes, as Daniels slaps him on the back, tagging himself in. AJ comes back and slides through Harris’ legs before getting back up. Harris turns around and Styles kicks him in the mid-section, lifts him up by the legs, AND NAILS HARRIS WITH THE STYLES CLASH!! AJ turns him over onto his back for Daniels, who enters the ring, jumps to the second rope and then to the top rope, AND HITS HARRIS WITH THE BEST MOONSAULT EVER!! Daniels hooks the leg:
Winners - The Phenomenal Angels @ 14:22.
Daniels gets to his feet and he and Styles have their hands raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd, The Phenomenal Angels now the number-one contenders to the NWA World Tag Team Championships!
How about THAT, Generation Next? You’ll put your NWA World Tag Team Championships on the line in just over two weeks at Sacrifice against The Phenomenal Angels, ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles and ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels!!
Should be a good match.
Should be a great
match. I guess you could call it a dream match for ‘em, since y’know, I’m sure AJ and Chris have wanted to face us for a long time.
You could call them a dream team!!
Two of the greatest professional wrestlers we've ever seen in TNA joining forces!!
Yeah, well, when it comes to these NWA World Tag Team Championships it’s all about chemistry
, Don West. That’s something Roderick and I have in abundance, and something that AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels sorely lack, despite their victory tonight.
Daniels and Styles come face-to-face, nodding at each other before turning their attention to Aries and Strong, who leave the announce table and walk onto the ramp, holding their titles in the air and exchanging trash talk with Daniels and Styles, their next challengers…
*Backstage - Interview Area*
Jeremy Borash is with Team Canada.
I’m here with Team Canada, now without Eric Young, who as we saw last Sunday at Lockdown was forced to leave the group after losing to Bobby Roode in a match that you, Scott D’Amore, played a big part in the outcome of, by giving Bobby a pair of brass knuckles. The question on everybody’s mind is… why?
Let me make one thing perfectly clear, JB… I didn’t want to hurt Eric Young. When I say that Team Canada are like sons to me, I mean it!! But what happened last Sunday… was necessary. Bobby Roode is a future NWA World Heavyweight Champion, and last Sunday, I was faced with LOSING
him!! Eric was a valued asset of Team Canada, no question about it, but he just doesn't have the same ceiling as Bobby!! You have to understand, when I gave Bobby that pair of brass knuckles last Sunday, I was acting in the best interests of Team Canada. All I hope is that Eric understands… and we can remain friends.
~ Borash’s facial expression suggests that he believes that is highly unlikely.
Quick question for you, Petey Williams, you’re on the same team as Eric Young for the World X Cup, will you be able to co-exist?
Sure we will, JB. After all, if it was up to me…
Eric Young would still be a part of Team Canada. But of course, it’s not up to me
, it’s up to the almighty Scott D’Amore. What Scott says goes, and I'm sure A-1 and Bobby are just fine, they're gonna keep their mouths shut, but me? I'm starting to get a little sick of it.
~ D’Amore removes his glasses, getting in Petey’s face, but A-1 and Roode separate them. A-1 backs D’Amore up, whilst Roode directs his attention to Petey.
HEY!! What the hell are you doing?
~ Williams doesn’t say a word, simply scowling.
As your friend
, here’s some advice… keep… your mouth… SHUT.
Williams scoffs, shaking his head before turning around and walking away, much to the chagrin of Roode. whilst D’Amore looks flabbergasted.
The NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Christian Cage, walks out, getting a big pop from the crowd. Wearing a black collared shirt with rolled-up sleeves and denim jeans, and carrying his title over his shoulder, Cage looks into the crowd, pointing to them and then slapping his chest before walking down the ramp.
Well, Christian Cage didn’t have it easy against ‘The Monster’ Abyss this past Sunday at Lockdown inside the six sides of steel. But here he is, four days later, still the NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
Cage enters the ring, taking a microphone.
Is it just me or is something… different?
~ Cheers from the crowd.
I can’t put my finger on it. I mean, this ring still has six sides… everybody at home is still watching on Spike TV… I’m still in the iMPACT! Zone in front of all of my peeps…
~ Cheap pop from the crowd.
… and even after being put through hell last Sunday at Lockdown, even with three cracked ribs after being thrown off the stage… I am still YOUR
NWA World Heavyweight Champion!!
~ More cheers from the crowd.
And whether we’re on Thursday nights, Saturday nights, or… Monday nights…
~ Boos from the crowd when WWE is alluded to, bringing a smile to Cage’s face.
… this championship stays over my
shoulder. I knew going into Lockdown that Abyss was going to be the toughest challenge of my career, and that’s exactly what he was. I feel a hell of a lot worse right now than I did before I set foot inside that steel cage, but the fact of the matter is, after all of the beatdowns, after everything that James Mitchell said, Abyss couldn’t take this NWA World Heavyweight Championship away from me!!
~ Cheers from the crowd.
***DOWN IN THE CATACOMBS***
Cage is interrupted as, speak of the devil, ABYSS walks out with JAMES MITCHELL, who has a scowl on his face, getting heat from the crowd.
And there’s the man in question, the man who failed to defeat Christian Cage at Lockdown for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, ‘The Monster’ Abyss, along with James Mitchell!!
Mitchell leads Abyss down the ramp and into the ring, joining a wary Cage who is visibly angered by their presence. Mitchell takes a microphone.
Christian Cage… y’know, I would congratulate you on your victory… but I had the best seat in the house for your match with Abyss at Lockdown… so I of all people should know last Sunday… you didn’t win.
~ Boos from the crowd, as Cage looks confused.
You’re confused, Christian, and I understand why. I mean, you are
officially still the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, and you did
have your hand raised last Sunday… but you didn’t defeat ‘The Monster’ Abyss… you escaped
from ‘The Monster’ Abyss.
~ More boos from the crowd.
You didn’t pin him, you didn’t make him submit… you walked out of Lockdown with that NWA World Heavyweight Championship, although "walked" probably isn't the best word to use… because of the feeble excuse for a cage door that couldn’t withstand the FORCE
of this six-foot-eight, three-hundred-and-fifty pound WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION
, CRASHING INTO IT!! All you
had to do was fall through that door, and here you are!! Still the champ!! Still the esteemed leader of these mindless people you call "PEEPS"!!
~ Cheers when Mitchell mentions the 'peeps'.
So let me ask you this
, Christian… did you accomplish what you set out to do last Sunday?
~ Cage glances at his title over his shoulder.
Well I’m still the champ, aren’t I?
~ Cheers from the crowd, as Mitchell laughs.
Indeed you are… but is that enough?
That’s the million-dollar question!! After all, Christian, (points at Abyss)
THIS is the man… that gave your dear old friend Rhino a CONCUSSION
, BY SMASHING HIS SKULL IN BETWEEN TWO STEEL CHAIRS!! And have we seen Rhino since? NO!!
~ Boos from the crowd, as Cage’s expression turns sour.
THIS is the man… that DECIMATED
you inside that steel cage last Sunday, that THREW
you off of that very stage (points to the stage)
down to the concrete floor
, and exposed
you as the PATHETIC
excuse for a champion that you are, Christian!! So now that I’ve refreshed your memory, I’ll ask you again… is… that… ENOUGH?!
~ Cage doesn’t say a word, maintaining a stern expression on his face.
Your silence is worth a thousand words!! I can see it in your eyes, you’re picturing the destruction that ‘The Monster’ Abyss has caused… and you’re picturing what you want to do to Abyss. Isn’t that right, Mr. ‘Instant Classic’?
~ Cage remains silent, but is visibly angry.
Your (air quotes)
‘victory’ at Lockdown seems a little hollow all of a sudden now, DOESN'T IT?! You’re not satisfied with just adding one more notch to the win column!! You want to make Abyss SUFFER
, you want to make him PAY
for what he did not just to your friend Rhino, but to YOU
, Christian!! And above all, you want to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, to me, to Abyss, to your adoring fans, and to YOURSELF
, that you are a worthy champion!!
~ Mitchell takes a breather, glancing at Abyss.
If that’s what you want, Christian… then how about you defend your NWA World Heavyweight Championship against Abyss in seventeen days at Sacrifice… not in a steel cage… but in an environment where you can truly
exact revenge upon Abyss… where you can truly
defend your friend’s, and your own
… and what better way to do it than to slay the monster, once and for all, in his own personal playground… THE MONSTER’S BALL MATCH!!!!
~ Cheers from the crowd, who want to see that match take place.
What do you say, Christian? Prove that you’re the champion you say you are, AND FACE ABYSS AT SACRIFICE!!
~ The crowd chant Cage’s name, as he thinks about what to say.
Me and Abyss… in a Monster’s Ball match at Sacrifice… for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship…
~ Mitchell nods his head with a grin on his face.
… is that what you want?
~ Mitchell nods again.
Well believe me… you don't want it as much as I do.
~ Cheers from the crowd, as Mitchell smiles deviously.
Christian Cage: You want a Monster's Ball match at Sacrifice, Abyss? YOU'VE GOT IT!!
~ Big pop from the crowd.
At Sacrifice, Abyss, only one of us is gonna leave that ring on their own two feet… and it’s gonna be me.
The crowd shout “HOW I ROLL!”. Cage’s music hits, and he holds the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in the air, angering Abyss who lets out a loud roar, before leaving the ring.
Christian Cage defied the odds and walked out of Lockdown with the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, but at Sacrifice he’ll have to defend the gold against ‘The Monster’ Abyss once again in Abyss’ specialty match, the Monster’s Ball Match!!
Christian said only one man will walk out of Sacrifice on their own two feet, and I think he’s exactly right!! It’s going to be BRUTAL!!
We’ll see you next Thursday night, right here at 11/10 CT on Spike TV!!
Cage walks up the ramp and reaches the stage, looking back at the ring with a look of defiance on his face and having a staredown with Abyss, who is being held back by Mitchell, to close the show…
