IN THE RING (The JAY-VAL WEDDING)

Ware & Kamala & George “The Animal” Steel & Jake “The Snake” Roberts: So-Cal Val’s maid of honor was played by Dixie Carter’s assistant. Sonjay Dutt (Lethal’s “best man”) interrupted the ceremony and professed his love for So-Cal Val. Dutt attacked Lethal. Koko B. Ware, Kamala, Jake the Snake, and George the Animal made the save. Jake had his trademark snake, and George started eating a turn-buckle. Terribly painful segment.
SUPER GRUDGE MATCH
“The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles defeated Kurt Angle: As hard as it is to watch Kurt Angle wrestle when he is clearly not 100%, he still managed to put on a dynamite match with A.J. Styles. Angle may have further injured his fragile neck when Styles did a flip over the top rope and hit his leg across Angle’s neck. Karen Angle showed up and was about to give Kurt a chair but pulled it away. A.J. Styles took advantage of the distraction and hit Angle with a Style’s Clash.
KING OF THE MOUNTAIN MATCH (TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE)
Samoa Joe defeated Booker “Royal” T and Robert Roode and Christian Cage and Rhino to retain the TNA World Heavyweight title: Kevin Nash was the special outside enforcer for the match. Samoa Joe was the last man to score a pinfall and become eligible to hang the belt above the ring. Joe climbed the ladder and hung the belt to win the match and become the first man to ever retain his championship in a King of the Mountain Match. Joe and Kevin Nash shook hands after the match but there was some tension, thus hinting around a possible Joe-Nash match in the future.
