Heading into tonight's (Sept. 6, 2012) episode of Impact Wrestling, which served as the go home show to the No Surrender pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for Sunday Night in Orlando, Florida, Total Nonstop Action (TNA) had announced only two matches for the weekend show, and none on TV.
Essentially, they built an entire PPV card on one episode of Impact Wrestling.
The Bound for Glory Series finished up with Jeff Hardy and Bully Ray picking up victories to make it into the final four and set up the semifinal matches. Because James Storm finished first, he was able to choose his opponent and he went with Ray, which means Samoa Joe will take on Hardy.
The winners will meet in the final later in the evening.
Rob Van Dam and Magnus, two singles wrestlers who failed to make it to the show in the top four, will be squaring off in a match that was sort of just made on the spot with little to no explanation.
A tag title match was also booked with Christopher Daniels and Kazarian defending their belts against the team of AJ Styles and Kurt Angle, as put together by General Manager Hulk Hogan after the champs retained the straps tonight on the inaugural edition of "Championship Thursday."
Finally, TNA Heavyweight Champion Austin Aries had his way with the Aces and Eights and got his match against a man known simply as "The Armbreaker," who looks a lot like Luke Gallows, which was announced just as Impact Wrestling was going off the air.
Complete No Surrender match card after the jump.
