Mike Tenay and Don West opened the show from the ring, and explained the rules for the Anarchy In The Asylum match later tonight, and explained that four slots in the match would be filled by the winners of other bouts on the card tonight.
D'Lo Brown & AJ Styles defeated Elix Skipper & Low Ki in 9:03. Very good match, with both sides getting their share of offense in. Towards the end, Brown was fighting with Skipper on the floor, while Low Ki went for a handspring kick on AJ. Brown slid back into the ring as Low Ki jumped up in the air, and grabbed him, delivering a Sky High spinebuster (as AJ added a neckbreaker to the move). Brown then covered Low Ki for the pin. Brown and Styles gain entrance in the Asylum match later one.
Backstage, Glen Gilberti told SEX that tonight there was an "I" in team. He said he wanted to be the number one contender, and that he needed SEX behind him tonight. Gilberti said he was focused tonight, and that to prove it, he was going to go beat the "living s***" out of Jeff Jarrett right now.
Don West and Mike Tenay discussed the other qualifying matches for tonight.
Glen Gilberti walked through the crowd and headed up the ramp to the TNA dressing room. The camera man appeared to be trying to stop him. Gilberti busted into Jarrett's dressing room, and Jarrett was there with a knee brace and crutches. Gilberti attacked him, blasting him with the crutches and dragging him out of the building. Gilberti blasted Jarrett with chair shots, until security finally pulled him away.
Sabu defeated New Jack & The Sandman in a three way match in 6:10. New Jack came out first, and got on the mic. New Jack said Sabu forgot about his days in ECW when he would be "drunk and on pills" with him and Sandman with a bunch of "buck nekkid midgets". Jack said Sabu forgot when that "c***sucker" Paul Heyman bounced checks on them, and Jack remarked that he still hasn't made good on them. New Jack said they still haven't gotten paid for their action figures. Jack said Sabu went down on the ship with the rest of them, but he forgot about that. Jack accused Jeff Jarrett of bringing Sabu in because he doesn't want to face Jack or Sandman. Sandman did his traditional pre-match beer drinking, wearing an ECW T-shirt, while Jack and Sabu started the match in the ring. After Sabu sent Jack from the ring, Sandman entered and Sabu went at it with him. We saw during the match that Glen Gilberti had attacked Jeff Jarrett backstage again. In the ring, Sabu was fighting a two on one battle, but managing to keep control of the match. New Jack turned the tide by using a staple gun on Sabu. New Jack used a fork on Sabu. Sabu battled back with a spike. Sandman set up a table outside the ring. Sabu went to put New Jack through a table with a triple jump, but Sandman caned him as he jumped up. Sandman caned Sabu in the ring. They showed security escorting Jeff Jarrett into a van. New Jack, Sandman and Sabu were fighting into the crowd. We learned that Jarrett was headed to the hospital. Sabu was being double teamed by Jack and Sandman and put on a table. New Jack got on a scissor lift, and raised it as high as it would go, which was higher than even the balcony that Sandman had climbed to. New Jack jumped off, but Sabu moved, and went through the table alone. Sabu then covered New Jack on the floor for the pin. Sabu moves on to the Anarchy match.
Backstage, Tracy (the woman who attacked Lollipops last week) was complaining to Bill Behrens that no women were in the Anarchy match tonight. Tracy promised to "make it worth his while" to Behrens if he got her in the match. Behrens remarked to Goldylocks that she should be more like Tracy.
A video package on America's Most Wanted and their recent problems aired. They were then interviewed by Goldylocks. They played off the problems, and said that they were going to remain friends, but tonight was about getting a shot at the NWA World title.
James Storm defeated Chris Harris in 7:35. Mostly scientific match, with both men getting some near falls. At the end, Harris hit a stunner off the ropes for a two count. Harris hit a DDT, then went to the top rope, but missed the flying elbowdrop. Storm hit the Eight Second Ride for a two count, and yelled at the referee following the cover. Storm yelled for Harris to get up. Storm missed a kick, and Harris slingshotted him into the corner. Storm jumped on the ropes and went for a dive, but Harris speared him for a two count. The two then slugged it out. Harris went for a sunset flip, but Storm sat down on it, hooking the legs and getting the pin. Storm moves on to the Anarchy match. Harris walked off after the match, but came back and shook hands with Storm.
Goldylocks interviewed Erik Watts, who acted very upset over Jeff Jarrett being hurt. His phone rang, and he acted like he was talking to someone about being the "NWA Director of Operations". He asked Goldylocks for a moment of silence for Jeff Jarrett.
Tracy vs. Trinity vs. Desire (accompanied by David Young and Sonny Siaki) was held, with the winner gaining entrance into the Asylum match. Kid Kash came down before the match could begin. Kash ripped on Trinity for focusing on her own career, rather than taking care of him. He totally heeled her, and gave her the option of either taking a beating, or getting on her knees and apologizing to her. Trinity gave Kash the finger, and Kash slapped her around. Kash handcuffed Trinity to him and tossed her around by her hair and yanked her from ringside. Kash threw Trinity onto the ramp, with security yelling at him. In the ring, Desire kicked Tracy from the ring, then badly missed a dropkick through the ropes. Desire jumped off the steps and clotheslined Tracy on the floor, then dropped her on the rails. Tracy had some blood on her leg. After some more fighting, Tracy hit Desire with a Bombs Away off the top, but Siaki distracted the referee. David Young got in and Desire grabbed Tracy. Young went to hit her, Tracy ducked, and Young hit Desire by mistake. Tracy then covered Desire for the pin after about 2:41 of action (the bell actually rang before the whole Kid Kash promo). Tracy moves on to the Anarchy match.
They did the "Interrogators" bit with the Harris Brothers. They picked Japan over Mexico because there was more money. When asked between Clay Akins or Ruben Studder (who are these people?), one of the Harris brothers asked "which one is the white guy?" They called a lot of wrestlers "p******", and ended the segment by calling announcers "a*******".
The events leading to Jerry Lynn & Amazing Red vs. Christopher Daniels in a handicap match was shown.
Goldylocks interviewed Amazing Red and Jerry Lynn. Red said he had learned a lot from Jerry Lynn. Lynn reminded Red of how Ron Killings' attack helped him with the X-Division title. Lynn made it clear that after this week, Lynn was looking for an X-Division title match with Red.
Christopher Daniels defeated Jerry Lynn & Amazing Red in a handicap match in 6:50 to win the NWA World Tag Team Championship. Two minutes into the match, Low Ki and Elix Skipper got on the ring apron, allowing Daniels to use a chair on Red, sweeping out his leg. Daniels put Red in a single leg crab, but Lynn broke it up with a right hand. Daniels continued to work on the leg, but missed a double jump moonsault. Red hit a sunset flip style powerbomb and tagged in Lynn. Lynn hit the TKO on Daniels, then knocked Ki and Skipper off the apron. Daniels shoved Lynn into the referee, knocking him down. Red was knocked off the top rope to the floor by Low Ki. Lynn dropkicked Skipper away, and took out all three members of XXX with chairshots. The referee saw Lynn using the chair, and disqualified him. As a result of a rule change announced a few weeks ago, but never used until now, the titles change hands. So Daniels won the tag titles by himself.
The Anarchy in the Asylum match was next. Wrestlers enter the ring every 90 seconds, and are eliminated by pinfall, submission or being thrown over the top rope to the floor. Falls count anywhere, until the final two men, at which point the fall must take place in the ring.
