-Hacksaw Duggan opened the show by leading the crowd in a Pledge of Allegience. He took shots at Germany and France. He told a story about putting his girls to bed and them being worried during war time.
-A long recap aired of recent angles and storylines.
-Mike Tenay and Don West introduced the program.
-Glen Gilberti attempted to talk D-Lo into joining SEX. Sonny Siaki apologized for how he acted toward him last week. D-Lo began to second-guess his decision to reject SEX's offer. Jeff Jarrett came out and told him he will get his title shot, but not any handouts. The Next Generation (Erik Watts, David Flair, Brian Lawler) attacked Jarrett. D-Lo chose sides by defending Jarrett. Dusty Rhodes, America's Most Wanted, and Ron "The Truth" Killings joined Jarrett and D-Lo in clearing the ring of the heels. Tenay said that proved Truth was on the side of TNA, not SEX.
-A pre-taped promo aired with Raven previewing his match against A.J. Styles.
(1) Low Ki & Elix Skipper (w/Christopher Daniels) defeated Brian Lee & Slash (w/James Mitchell) via DQ when Malice interfered at 8:00 to offset cheating by Ki and Skipper. The fans were behind Lee & Slash, chanting "Evil." Good match. Great final few minutes.
-Tenay interviewed Erik Watts who said he has been held back because his father Bill Watts made enemies.
-Gilberti chewed out the SEX crew backstage. Tenay said Gilberti is clearly the new leader of the group now that Vince Russo has retired.
-Konnan was in the Interrogation segment. He lost his temper when he was asked about lucha libre vs. X Division.
(2) Juventud Guererra & Konnan defeated Jerry Lynn & Jason Cross when Konnan pinned Lynn using the middle rope for leverage at 9:22.
-Amazing Red challeged Kid Kash and his valet Trinity to a three-way dance.
-James Mitchell challenged Triple X to an S&M eight-man tag match next week.
(3) Kid Kash defeated Trinity and Amazing Red when he pinned Red to retain the X Title at 5:58. Solid match.
(4) Dusty Rhodes, D-Lo Brown & Jeff Jarrett defeated Erik Watts, Brian Lawler & David Flair at 8:20. D-Lo wrestled the majority of the the match on defense before tagging out to Jarrett.
-After the match, Ron Killings turned on Jarrett. Watts dragged Jarrett outside and tied him by the neck to his limo. He then said he was just playing mind games.
-The New Church barged into the SEX dressing room. SEX outnumbered them.
-Holly Wood and Athena brawled in the ring, but no one was stripped this week. Siaki attacked Athena, and David Young made the save.
-A video package aired on the history between Styles and Raven.
(5) Raven defeated A.J. Styles to earn an NWA World Heavyweight Title shot against Jeff Jarrett. Raven bled heavily. Gilberti interfered with a powerbomb on Styles through a table leading to the finish.
