Michael Shane was overanxious for his match. Shane Douglas warned Michael Shane that the NWA was out to screw him, just like they held him down years ago. He said that was why the NWA had him wrestling three men tonight. Douglas told Michael Shane to let Low Ki and Christopher Daniels kill each other, so he just had to take care of Sabin. Mike Tenay, Erik Watts and Goldylocks were in the ring to present the "Mr. TNA" award for 2003. Tenay explained that the voting started with Dusty Rhodes, Sting, Raven, AJ Styles and Jeff Jarrett, but that it had come down to Styles and Jarrett. Both men were shown in the back watching monitors. Jarrett apparently was organizing notes for an acceptance speech. Tenay acted like he was disappointed when the envelope was opened, then shouted out that Styles was the winner. AJ Styles came to the ring and was presented with a trophy. Styles said that 2003 was a great year for him, and thanked the fans for voting for him. Styles said in 2004, he wanted more, namely the NWA World Title. Jeff Jarrett came out with Don Callis, Abyss and the Red Shirts. Jarrett claimed he had a better record than Styles in 2003, and bragged about his accomplishments. Jarrett said that AJ Styles was a joke. Tenay said that the fans had spoken, and that AJ Styles was Mr. TNA. Tenay suggested that since both men had something the other wanted, they should settle it one-on-one, with the title belt being put on the line against the Mr. TNA trophy. Jarrett suggested a tag match for next week with Jarrett & Abyss vs. Erik Watts & AJ Styles. Jarrett said if Styles' team wins, he gets a title shot. But, if Jarrett's team wins, Watts gives up his job as Director of Authority. Before Watts could respond, Goldylocks accepted the challenge on his behalf. The ad for the Girls of TNA calendar was shown. It was then announced that Glen Gilberti had requested that next week Simon Diamond wrestle David Young, with himself as the referee. A video package on Ultimate X II, with comments from all participants, was shown. Ultimate X II: X Division Champion Michael Shane vs. Chris Sabin vs. Low Ki vs. Christopher Daniels
The X Division Title belt was hung on an "X" formed by two cables, suspended across four poles attached to the cornerposts. First person to grab the belt is the winner. A ladder got involved in this epic, as Low Ki and Daniels battled up and down it before Michael Shane toppled it-- sending Low Ki and Daniels over the top rope and to the floor. The referee took the ladder away from the center of the ring. NWA Security member Chris Vaughn came out and took the ladder away, while Shane complained to the referee. Shane went to climb the scaffolding, but Sabin sprung up, and kicked at Shane while hanging on the cable. Shane fell backwards, out of the ring and through the table that Daniels had set up on the floor during the early part of the match. Sabin then climbed across the cable, hand over hand, and grabbed the title belt. Sabin hung off the belt, which wouldn't drop, and had to bounce up and down on the belt before it would open and fall to the mat with Sabin at the fifteen minute mark. Winner and new X Division Champion: Chris Sabin.Sabin wins back the belt in the same style of match he lost it.
