For those who wondered if TNA would flip the script and not let James Storm finally get his revenge on Bobby Roode at the company's biggest show of the year, we now have our answer.
No, they did not flip the script.
Instead, they stuck to it completely. Other than the promotion's inability to decide if King Mo Lawal was the special referee or enforcer (they announced both at separate times, he ultimately ended up just being an enforcer), everything went exactly the way it should.
Storm and Roode gave each other their best, engaging in a brutal and bloody match that saw some sick bumps, like Roode taking a back bump off the second ropes onto some thumbtacks.
In the end, Lawal's involvement was minimal and he was relegated to the outside, watching (with a few awesome facial expressions) while the pros took care of business inside (and outside) the ring.
It was fun, it was right, and it was exactly as it should have been.
