TNA World Title Series
Madison Rayne (0) vs. Brooke Tessmacher (3)
Madison cuts a promo backstage before the match and talks about the Knockouts starting the “revolution” going on in Women’s wrestling a decade ago. Pretty lame shot at WWE’s “Divas Revolution.” She says that she knows that this match is do or die for here in the World Title Series and she knows that her back is against the wall but she likes it like that. Brooke beat Gail in her first match in the series while Madison lost to Kong. They shake hands before the match and then lockup with Brooke forcing Madison into the corner before tossing her with an armdrag. Madison respond with an armdrag of her own and then they lockup again. Madison gets Brooke in a side headlock but Brooke counters into a hammerlock and then a headlock of her own. Madison counters with an armdrag and then goes back to the headlock. Brooke shoves Madison into the ropes and then drops down but Madison jumps on Brooke’s back and locks the headlock back on. Brooke fights to her feet and shoves Madison into the ropes and hits a dropkick for a nearfall. Madison hits a series of forearms but sells her arm like she injured it and Madison immediately runs her over with a Shoulder Block. Madison lights Brooke up with chops and forearms before connecting with a Spinning Elbow. Madison dropkicks the arm of Brooke of she had it laid out on the ropes. Brooke tries fighting back with kicks and an elbow from the other arm. Brooke hits a Running Knee followed by a Springboard Clothesline out of the corner for another nearfall. Brooke and Madison exchange forearms but then Brooke surprises Madison with a Flapjack as she hit the ropes. Brooke climbs up top and hits a Flying Elbow Drop for a nearfall. Brooke covers Madison for another nearfall out of frustration. Brooke attempts a Back Suplex but she can’t lift Madison because of her arm injury and Madison immediately hits the Rayne Check for the pin!
Winner: Madison Rayne via pinfall (Rayne Check) to earn 3 points!

TNA World Title Series
“The Ultimate Underdog” Rockstar Spud (3) vs. “The Woman Beater” Bram (0)
Fresh off his suspension Bram is looking for his first points while Spud looks to just about guarantee his venture to the next round with a win. Bram gets in Spud’s face and then shoves him as the fans chant for the Underdog. Spud doesn’t back down and gets in Bram’s face but Bram shoves him down and then starts taunting him. Spud slaps the piss out of Bram and then ducks a right hand and slaps Bram again. Spud hits a series of forearms and then ducks a clothesline and hits a few more strikes. Spud backs Bram into the corner and hits a series of Running Forearms but as he went for a third one Bram grabs him by the throat. Spud bites the thumb of Bram only for Bram to grab him by the hair and slam to the mat. Spud begins to play with Bram’s head as he goes in and out of the ring with Bram giving chase only for Spud to elbow drop him as he gets in the ring. Bram gets frustrated and goes to the floor to gain his composure. Spud dives off the apron but Bram catches him in midair and Press Slams him onto the ring steps. Back in the ring Bram hits the Brighter Side of Suffering for the pin.
Winner: Bram via pinfall (Brighter Side of Suffering) to earn 3 points!
