TNA X Division Championship – Ultimate X Match
Tigre Uno (c) vs. Manik vs. “DJ Z” Zema Ion vs. Andrew Everett
Manik is still going by that name rather than TJP oddly enough. This is Andrew Everett’s debut in TNA, he’s a young high flyer from the North Carolina area that has been making waves this year with his high flying style. Manik goes right after Tigre as he gets in the ring and Everett pairs up with Zema. Zema pulls Manik off of Tigre and starts stomping on him.

Tigre hits a Springboard Flying Cross Body on Everett and then a series of kicks. The guys exchange reversals and counters on each other and Tigre botches a spinning arm drag a bit but still manages to take Manik over. He hits a Springboard Armdrag on both Everett and Manik but then gets destroyed with a Lariat from Zema! Zema goes for an Asai Moonsault but Manik drops him face first into the apron.

Tigre backdrops Zema over the top and then Enziguris him off the apron. Zema dives off the back of Tigre into a Plancha onto Manik on the floor! Tigre then hits a Tornillo over the top onto Manik and Zema on the floor! Everett takes his chance to dive with a Springboard Shooting Star Press onto everyone as a massive “TNA” chant breaks out! Everett climbs up onto the cables and begins scaling them to reach the belt, but Manik comes from behind and kicks him off. Manik then hits a Snap Suplex rolling into the Back Suplex! Tigre hits a Sunset Flip on Manik but he rolls through and attempts a Standing Corkscrew Moonsault only for Tigre to move. Zema goes for the Springboard Tornado DDT but Tigre blocks it only to eat a Double Facebuster/Front Suplex combo from Zema and Manik!

Everett then hits a beautiful 630 Splash on Manik! Tigre climbs up top but Zema crotches him and then climbs up the opposite scaffold. Everett climbs on the other side and begins trading punches with Zema. They both fall off the scaffold with Zema falling to the floor and Everett falling onto the ropes. Tigre gets back to his feet and instead of climbing the cables he hits an insane 450-Splash onto Zema on the damn floor! I believe that’s the first time he has pulled that spot out in TNA but he did it a lot in Mexico! Tigre seems like he may have injured his arm on that move. Everett climbs to the top of the scaffold and actually walks the cables while Manik springboard to the middle! Manik grabs the belt but Everett kicks him off and reaches for the belt himself. Tigre finally gets back up and quickly scales across the cables to the center. They begin kicking each other and then Tigre kicks the hell out of Everett causing Everett to crash to the mat! Tigre grabs the title and pulls it down to retain!
