BLACK TIE BRAWL & CHAIN MATCH
“Black Machismo” Jay Lethal w/So-Cal Val defeated “The Guru” Sonjay Dutt: So-Cal Val accompanied Jay Lethal to the ring, and was wearing the engagement ring again. Lethal was especially violent with Dutt, and Val protested from ringside trying to get him to stop. Lethal refused to go any easier on Dutt, so Val walked out on him in the middle of the match.

LAST MAN STANDING MATCH
A.J. Styles defeated Kurt Angle: Before the match, A.J. Styles said that he talked with Sting and everything was water under the bridge. A.J. Styles won the first fall with an Ankle-lock – Angle recovered. Kurt Angle won the second fall with a German-suplex – Styles recovered. Angle won the third fall with an Olympic-slam – Styles recovered. Styles won the forth fall with a Styles-Clash – Angle recovered. The finish saw A.J. Styles plant Kurt Angle with an insane DDT off the top rope finally putting Angle down for the 10-count. It was played as if Kurt Angle suffered a legit neck injury and they loaded him onto a stretcher to take him away. Styles knocked the stretcher over after the match, sending the injured Angle down to the floor. The lights went out and Sting showed up and applied the Scorpion Death-lock on A.J. Styles on the entrance ramp! Kevin Nash showed up and scolded Sting for attacking A.J. Styles.

Samoa Joe defeated Booker T w/Sharmell to retain the TNA World Heavyweight title: The match was cut short due to time running out on the Pay Per View. The finish saw the lights go out and when they came back on, Samoa Joe had a guitar in his hands and smashed it over Booker T’s head for the win!
