Mike Tenay reminds us that the Fox Box gives you all the info. Shoulder thrusts into Hardy in the turnbuckle 2 minutes into the match. Abyss is then shown standing by the entrance ramp, and Raven is shown standing up on the rafters. We head to a commercial break but then return with both Monty and Jeff getting back into the ring, as they were brawling in the crowd. Sleeper hold on Hardy, but Hardy soon escapes and hits a flying clothesline. Hardy then kicked Monty into the corner, but Monty comes back with a side suplex. After a few more battling, Jeff Hardy hit the Swanton Bomb but the referee Rudy Charles was down! Abyss then came out and Black Hole Slammed Hardy. Monty Brown then pounced Abyss. But then Rave came out and Raven Effected Monty Brown, while Hardy picked up the win with the Twist Of Fate.

Team Canada vs. James Storm & Christopher Daniels
Team Canada (Bobby Roode & Eric Young) became NWA World Tag Team champions by defeating "Cowboy" James Storm & "Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels This was the biggest tag team match in Impact history. Early on Daniels/Storm had Team Canada's number fighting in and out of the ring. Back in the ring Young's left arm got worked on for several minutes even as Scott D'amore came down to interfere. He was ushered to the locker room by Zybzsko and Rudy Charles. Young faked an ankle injury long enough to allow Roode time to jump Daniels from behind. Team Canada tried to break all the rules and Daniels' clavicle but couldn't get the pin. Storm was finally able to tag into the match once again and he took the fight to Team Canada. Daniels hit the BME on Roode but the pin got broken up. Storm had Roode up for the 8 second ride but Young threw Daniels into Storm. After a reversal of things allowed Young to pin Daniels for the win. D'Amore and Williams came out to celebrate the title win.
