*Jay Lethal defeated Johnny Gordado during Lethal's entrance, he handed his headband & robe to SoCal Val, but threw it in her face, she threw them down, turned her back and walked away..leaving them at ringside.
*The Main Event Mafia comes out to the ring. Kurt says he knows Sting is home licking his wounds, but it wasn't personal it was all business. He calls out Mick Foley who comes to the ring with his security team. Kurt immediately cuts off Foley who tries to speak and says he's crossed the line. He says he went over his head and lied to the Godfather. Rocco & Sally Boy stand in front of Foley, he says do your best. Steiner & Joe attack them & take them out. Foley says to just let him wrestle at Victory Road. Lets make a deal...Kurt says, door #1 he kicks his ass, door 2 its Booker 2. Nash is 3 and behind the curtain he unleashes Samoa Joe. He says he picks #1 and immediately hits Angle..the Mafia beat him down until Jeff Jarrett makes his way to the ring with his guitar. The Mafia runs off and heads away from ringside, Foley gets to his feet and Jarrett nails him with his guitar. The Mafia begin smiling as Jeff goes up the ramp through them, Angle slaps his chest..and Jarrett looks back at him with disgust before heading back down the babyface tunnel. The Mafia look confused and try to look for Jarrett.
*TNA Tag Team Champions, Beer Money come out to join West & Tenay for the following match. Scott Steiner & Booker T def Team 3D. Halfway through the match, Kiyoshi & Bashir come out & attack Beer Money at the commentary table. It looked like 3D was about to get the win. Rob Terry & Doug Williams attacked Devon at ringside, Brother Ray was left alone in the ring.. Brutus Magnus attacked him with the briefcase allowing Booker T to get the pin. Post match, Steiner attacked a fan at ringside and pulled him over the guardrail.
*Eric Young defeated Rhino w/Jesse Neal using his feet on the ropes.
*Sting comes out to the ring with the TNA title. He says he knows Kurt is watching and he has his belt..you want it, come get it. But in the meantime, he wants to talk to Joe, who comes out to the top of the ramp and makes his way to the ring. Sting tells him that he is the reason why wrestling and this company are as bad as they are right now. He's not willing to work for anything and expect things handed to him. He said he can fight this fight alone. Joe said, fortunately for Sting, he's been told to keep his temper. Sting asks who is in his ear, who's telling him, who is pulling his strings. Joe says he's going to say it one last time and you'll find out at Victory Road. Sting says he's going to find him tonight..pull him from the shadows bring him to the ring..tear him apart and feed him to the fans.
*Ladder Match for the X-Division Title Shot Briefcase. Doug Williams vs. the returning Homicide of LAX Homicide wins back his X-Division case, right as he was grabbing the case, Williams attempted to get back into the ring but Team 3D prevented that. Terry, Magnus, Kiyoshi & Bashir joined Williams and they continously beat down Team 3D until Foley's new security team made their way out and helped 3D to the back.
*Mick Foley comes out to the ring he says life can be funny sometimes and some times you need to make difficult decisions. He says that TNA shouldn't have two decision makers and suggests that tonight one should step down from decision making capacity. Jeff Jarrett comes out to the ring and says he needs to ask Mick a question..if he thinks before anything he says. He says they are cut from the same mold, its the nature of the beast. He says in Foley's quest to regain his TNA title, he put TNA in serious danger and no matter what happens after Victory Road he will always be a true legend in this business. He tells Mick he needs to start thinking why he came to TNA, the young athletes and their families and the future of TNA, but they have to do it together. Foley appreciates what Jarrett is saying...and that in hindsight, they are even steven...but he does say he needs to prove something to himself and that winning the TNA title was no fluke and that's to take it back from Kurt Angle and that's he's going to do it for the right reasons and for all the fans and wrestlers of TNA. He says Angle needs a warm-up match and tonight Angle should take on Jeff Jarrett..non title of course. Jeff likes the idea, but is "gonna tweak it" a bit..and make it a 3 way dance...himself vs Angle vs Mick Foley. Foley says he sees his tweak and raises one, so no one says they are in cahoots, they're gonna let Kurt Angle choose his own special referee. Jarrett says that it cannot be a member of the MEM or Matt Morgan.
*"The Outlaw" Jethro Holiday defeated Jesse Neal w/Rhino
*Booker T & Scott Steiner come out to join West & Tenay on commentary. Non Title Match.

*Tara defeated Velvet Sky w/Angelina Love & Madison Rayne with the Widow's Peak. Postmatch, Tara went to place the taranchula on Sky, Angelina screamed at ringside not to do it, Tara said only if she puts the Knockouts title on the line, she gracefully accepted and put the spider back in his case. Angelina entered the ring for her match. Tara vs Angelina Love for the TNA Knockouts Title. Match started with a few quick pin attemps for Tara, then Love escaped the ring, but Tara pulled her back by her hair. Madison Rayne tried to stop it and got thrown out by Rudy Charles.
