Last Man Standing Match
“Showtime” Eric Young vs. “The IT Factor” Bobby Roode
The rules here are straight forward, the man that cannot get to his feet for a ten count losses. That is the ONLY rule in this one as these two hated rivals go at it. Roode sprints to the ring and the fight is on! Young and Roode exchange strikes until Roode gets the advantage by slamming Young’s head into the top turnbuckle. Roode attempts to whip EY into the opposite corner but EY reverses it only for Roode to spring out of the corner with a Running Clothesline! Roode rakes the back of EY and then destroys his chest with some nasty chops! Roode whips EY into the corner but EY flips over the top to the apron only to eat a dropkick that sends EY flying to the floor. The referee gets to a six count but EY gets to his feet and Roode continues the beating on his former Team Canada brethren. Roode slams EY into the guardrail and then attempts to slam him into the ring apron, but EY blocks it and slams Roode into the apron. EY rakes the eyes of Roode as the fans chant for tables and then chant “you sold out” at EY. EY slams Roode into the guardrail and starts hitting some stiff chops of his own. EY drags Roode up the entrance ramp and attempts a Suplex, but Roode reverses it! The referee gets to a six count but EY gets back to his feet and Roode knocks him right back down with a Running Northern Lariat! Roode tosses EY into the guardrail again and then pulls out a table from under the ring as EY gets back to his feet at the eight count. Roode sets up the table and tries to slam EY into it but EY blocks it and kicks Roode in the nuts. EY and Roode continue to brawl all around ringside as we go to a break.
Back from the break Roode continues to beat on EY with chops but EY is able to duck a clothesline and catch Roode with a Neckbreaker. EY stands on Roode’s throat and drags Roode out to the floor again. EY hits another Neckbreaker, this time on the floor. Roode manages to get back to his feet at the seven count and EY attempts a clothesline, but Roode ducks only for EY to toss him hard into the ring steps. EY picks Roode up and slams him into the ring steps again and then attempts a Piledriver on the steps, but Roode backdrops EY onto the floor! Both men are down now and both get back to their feet at the eight count. Roode grabs a chair as does EY and they begin hitting each others chairs. They both drop the chairs and clothesline each other at the same time on the floor. Roode and EY both get up at about the nine count and roll themselves back into the ring. They trade stiff right hands and then Roode attempts a backdrop but EY catches him with a Piledriver out of nowhere! Roode manages to get back to his feet at the nine count to EY’s shock! EY hits a Running Back Elbow and then grabs his steel chair from earlier. EY hits Roode with the chair repeatedly but EY stops the referee from counting and picks Roode up. EY attempts a Piledriver onto the chair but Roode counters into a Piledriver of his own on the chair! EY shocks Roode by getting back to his feet at the nine count but Roode immediately goes for the Roode Bomb! EY grabs the ropes to block it and rakes his eyes at the same time. EY then attempts to Suplex Roode over the top and through the table at ringside! Roode blocks it and they both land on the apron where EY kicks Roode in the gut. EY attempts a Piledriver off the ring, but Roode counters into a Roode Bomb through the table off the apron! Roode gets to his feet but EY cannot and the match is over!
Winner: Roode via KO
In the back Magnus and Mickie James are shown arriving.
Baldheaded JB approaches Rockstar Spud and tells him that Spud doesn’t have to do this tonight with EC3, but Spud says that he DOES have to do it because he has to stand up to EC3 because people like him usually don’t stand up to people like EC3. Spud says that EC3 really thinks that bad guys win but Spud says he is going to prove that isn’t the case.
Footage of all of BDC/Drew Galloway drama is shown as Galloway makes his way to the ring. Drew says that he feels the passion from the fans and that he used to come to that very arena as a kid and feels what these fans feel. Drew says he wants to feel that passion from the crowd because he is one of them and then climbs into the crowd. Drew says that feels more natural to him and says he remembers watching the show back on tape when he was a kid to try to pick himself out in the crowd. He says that in pro wrestling it used to matter what the fans thought and that fans decided who would be on TV instead of people shoving things down their throat that they didn’t want to see. He asks the fans how many of them want to take back pro wrestling and he says they are on the right course to do just that.
Drew says that MVP thinks he can play God and manipulate the system to shove the BDC down everyone’s throats and win the World Title in the process. He says that MVP has challenged him to a match tonight and before he can say anything else MVP makes his way onto the stage along with the rest of the BDC including the now ROH star Samoa Joe.
MVP says that Drew is just pandering to all of the fans and that he doesn’t just play God because as far as Drew is concerned MVP IS God because he LITERALLY holds Drew’s life in his hands. MVP says that Drew was “chosen” once upon a time because Drew has the looks and the skill to be a champion but he doesn’t have the brain to be one. MVP says that Drew has been chosen again, this time by the BDC to receive the beat down of his life. MVP says he used to like Drew and they used to even be drinking buddies so he will do Drew a favor. MVP says he will ask his brothers to step to the back so he can beat Drew’s ass all by himself.
“The Chosen One” Drew Galloway vs. MVP
MVP and Galloway go right at when the bell rings exchanging strikes. Drew takes MVP down in the corner and puts the boots to him. MVP fights back with a cheap shot as the referee tried to separate them taking Drew down. MVP hits a Snapmare Takeover and connects with a round kick to the back followed by a Sliding Dropkick for the first nearfall of the match. MVP chokes Galloway in the ropes and then slams him into the turnbuckles. MVP whips Galloway into the opposite corner and goes for a Mafia Kick, but Galloway steps aside and then connects with a series of right hands. Drew opens up MVP’s top and lights him up with chops. Drew whips MVP into the ropes and attempts a Big Boot but MVP ducks only to run right into a Running Back Heel Kick from Galloway! Galloway sets up for the Future Shock DDT but the BDC hit the ring and jump Galloway!
Winner: Galloway via DQ
King hits a Flying Knee to Drew and then the Drive-By Kick from MVP. Low-Ki climbs up top and sets up for the Warrior’s Way but MVP stops him and then they toss Drew to the floor. King and MVP hold Drew against the ring post. Ki sets up to kick Drew’s head into the post but Joe stops him and hands Ki a lead pipe. Ki slams it into Drew’s head and Drew is busted open.
Backstage Mickie James talks to Magnus about his match tonight. Magnus says he is taking Bram out tonight and Mickie says that she is coming out with him tonight but Magnus says he has to handle it on his own.
A video package highlights the history between EC3 and Spud. Backstage Spud says he has been undefeated in sixteen months and name drops some of his wins. He says that he is synonymous with winning while Spud is synonymous with failure. He says that Spud needs to remember that this is what Spud WANTED when he is embarrassed in his hometown bleeding and crying in front of his mother and his family.
A video package highlights the feud between Magnus and Bram.
Magnus vs. Bram
Bram meets Magnus in the aisle way and the fight is on! Magnus tosses Bram into the guardrail repeatedly and then tosses him into the ring. Bram attempts a dropkick to Magnus but Magnus moves and then clotheslines Bram over the top and right back to the floor. Magnus whips Bram into the ring steps and then charges Bram in the corner as they get back in the ring only to run into a boot. Bram then shoves Magnus into the corner followed by a clothesline to the back. Bram slams Magnus, by the back of the head, into the mat repeatedly working over the previously injured head/neck area. Bram drags Magnus out to the ring apron and slams his head into the apron over and over now. Bram wraps Magnus’ upper body around the ring post and then drags him back in the ring and hits a Hangman’s Neckbreaker. Matthews points out that all of Bram’s offense has been directed at Magnus’ neck and head. Bram hits a second Hangman’s Neckbreaker and follows up with a Knee Drop for a nearfall. Bram taunts Magnus causing him to swing wildly and Bram ducks and connects with a Reverse X-Factor for another nearfall. Bram whips Magnus into the corner and then charges right into a boot from Magnus! Magnus climbs up top and dives off with a Missile Dropkick and both men are down now. Mickie James runs out and tries to motivate Magnus to get to his feet. Magnus and Bram exchange strikes and Magnus gets the better of him with a big Lariat! Magnus then leapfrogs a charging Bram and connects with a Running Lariat! Magnus climbs up top and dives off with the Flying Elbow Drop! Magnus attempts the MDD but Bram blocks it and low blows Magnus for the blatant DQ.
Winner: Magnus via DQ
Bram pulls out a chair and nails Magnus with it repeatedly! Bram pulls out a cue ball, like what he hit Magnus with weeks ago, and then pulls out a ziptie and ties Magnus’ arm to the ring ropes. Bram lays out the referee and Mickie James climbs into the ring laying across her fiancé to try and stop Bram! Bram grabs Mickie by the hair and taunts Magnus! Mickie slaps the piss out of Bram which does nothing but piss him off further. Bram grabs Mickie in a headlock and further taunts Magnus. He says that he used to look up to Magnus and now Magnus will look up to him. Bram says that he is going to take away EVERYTHING that Magnus loves. Bram says that he will let Mickie go if Magnus kisses his boot. He further taunts Magnus until Magnus agrees to do it as Mickie screams at him to get off of her.
Magnus kisses Bram’s boot and Bram laughs at him and further taunts him while letting Mickie go. Bram calls Magnus pathetic and says that he disgusts him.
Backstage the BDC brag about what they did to Galloway. MVP says that the blood has JUST begun to flow and Low-Ki says that he told Drew that he would get retribution. Ki says that this isn’t the end and Joe says that they warned Galloway repeatedly.
Robbie E w/Bro-Mans & Angelina Love vs. Brooke Tessmacher
Robbie is hilariously treating this like a big boxing match having a stool in his corner along with a spit bucket and water. Robbie taunts Brooke repeatedly and avoids her everytime she tries to lockup. Finally they lockup and Robbie tosses Brooke across the ring. Robbie challenges Brooke to a test of strength and he forces Brooke onto her back but she actually starts to reverse it so Robbie puts her in a Waistlock. Brooke reverses it into a side headlock so Robbie shoves her into the ropes and leapfrogs her. Brooke nails Robbie with a series of forearms and chops catching Robbie by surprise! Brooke takes Robbie’s stool and sits on it to taunt him. Angelina gets on the apron to distract Brooke allowing Robbie to grab her hair and slam her to the mat. Robbie hits a big Vertical Suplex and then climbs up top and hits the Fist Pump Drop, but Brooke moves and then hits a dive onto Angelina on the floor. She climbs up top and dives off with a Flying Cross Body onto Robbie but he catches her in midair. Angelina distracts the referee so that Jessie can dropkick Brooke, but Brooke moves and Jessie kicks Robbie! Brooke surprises Robbie with a Jackknife Cradle for the pin!
Winner: Brooke via pinfall
Josh Matthews discusses the Angle-Lashley match next week and says that both men have been given the week to prepare for this match. A video package hypes up each man.
Hair vs. Hair Match
Rockstar Spud vs. Ethan Carter III
This is the first Hair Match that TNA has had in a very long time, in fact I can’t think of the last time right off the top of my head. I can’t even think of the last Hair Match that WWE had either. I can remember a Molly Holly/Trish Stratus (I believe it was Trish) from years ago and Edge and Kurt Angle from years ago as well but this isn’t a match type that is done in American wrestling anymore. It is still very much a mainstay in Lucha Libre south of the border however. EC3 still has a big arm brace on his left arm. As the bell rings Spud goes right after EC3 with rights and lefts and even stomps EC3 down in the corner! EC3 rolls out to the floor and Spud gives chase! Spud slams EC3 into the ring apron and then lights him up with some stiff chops! Spud bites the nose of EC3 and lays EC3 out in the barber chair. Spud hits EC3 with a Running Dropkick and then tosses him back into the ring where EC3 kicks Spud in the head as he tried to climb back in the ring. EC3 is pissed off as he lays into Spud with vicious chops and stomps. Spud fights back with more right hands but EC3 destroys Spud with a Spinning Clothesline!
Back from the break EC3 is choking Spud in the ropes and attempts a Body Guillotine, but Spud moves out of the way and then hits a dropkick sending EC3 to the floor. Spud climbs up top and dives off the top with a Somersault Plancha onto EC3 on the floor! Spud rolls EC3 back in the ring and then Tyrus runs out and Powerbombs the ever loving sh*t out of Spud on the floor as EC3 distracted the referee! Tyrus rolls Spud back in the ring and EC3 laughs at his prone opponent. EC3 taunts Spud and then covers him, 1…2…NO Spud kicks out! EC3 cannot believe that Spud kicked out and Tyrus freaks out as well. EC3 rakes the eyes of Spud as Mr. Anderson runs out and starts brawling with Tyrus! Anderson hits the Mic Check on Tyrus on the floor and EC3 climbs out and hits Anderson in the back of the head with his arm brace. Spud grabs EC3 but EC3 blasts Spud with the brace as well! Spud’s forehead is busted open and he is leaking pretty good. EC3 tosses Spud back in the ring and starts working on that cut slamming it into the top turnbuckle and punching him repeatedly. EC3 hits a Splash on Spud in the corner using that brace again. EC3 taunts JB at ringside and then throws Spud out at his feet so that JB has to look at what EC3 is doing to Spud. EC3 screams “look what you’ve done” repeatedly at JB as EC3 punches Spud in that open wound over and over. EC3 tosses Spud into the ring and then eats a low blow from JB! Spud hits a Stunner on EC3, 1…2…NO EC3 kicks out as the fans are coming unglued! EC3 comes back with a TKO on Spud and then starts slamming Spud’s face into the mat over and over as Spud’s face has become the proverbial crimson mask. The fans chanting gets Spud fired up as he refuses to stay down. Spud fires off right hands at EC3 and then hits a series of Rebound Forearm Smashes off the ropes and then a Shining Wizard! Spud catches EC3 with an Enziguri and attempts the Underdog, but EC3 blocks it and hits a big Running Clothesline using that arm brace in the process! 1…2…NO and Spud kicks out yet again to EC3’s amazement! Spud literally crawls his way up EC3’s body trying to fight back but EC3 hits him with the One Percenter and gets the pin!
Winner: EC3 via pinfall (One Percenter)
After the match EC3 says that Rockstar Spud has, without a shadow of a doubt, the most heart that he has ever seen in a wrestler. EC3 says that he has done some heinous things to Spud but there was a time when they were best friends and he can admit that he ruined that. EC3 says that Spud proved that in front of his hometown that he belongs in TNA and that despite his size his heart weighs more and that he could even be a World Champion one day. EC3 says that Spud has the intangibles and he won’t shave his head tonight because he won’t embarrass him in front of his people. EC3 says that Spud proved himself tonight and that he doesn’t expect Spud to accept it but he is still going to offer Spud his hand. Spud accepts the handshake and EC3 raises Spud’s arm, but then obliterates Spud with a big right hand! EC3 hits Spud repeatedly with his arm brace and screams “NOT! TIME TO PAY!” EC3 hangs Spud upside down in the corner and then shaves Spud’s head! EC3 screams for everyone to take notice right now because this wrestling business is his now!
