TNA Tag Team Championship: Mexican America (c) vs. Ink Inc.
We're live on Facebook!
Both teams and the ladies make their way to the ring and the men brawl to start. Ink Inc. takes control of the match but a distraction from Sarita and Rosita put the champs in charge.
Huge body splash by Hernandez on Shannon Moore in the corner. It's followed up by an even bigger splash by Anarquia.
Jesse Neal gets the hot tag and clears house. He nearly gets a three count on Hernandez after a spear but Anarquia makes the save. Neal ends up getting back body dropped outside the ring onto Anarquia but doesn't connect. Moore hits a springboard and Hernandez follows up with a plancha.
Inside the ring, the Mexican America ladies tease diving to the outside but Toxine stops them and puts the (Doc Marten) boots to them. Anarquia comes up behind her but he pulls his trunks down! We see his chonies!
A double dropkick from Ink Inc. sends Anarquia to the outside but Hernandez is able to sneak up on Neal and get the roll up for three.
Winner and STILL champions: Mexican America
Mike Tenay and Tazz talking up the PPV.
My goodness Christy Hemme is looking amazing.
Alright, PPV has started. Pretty awesome opening video highlighting the feuds between Hogan and Sting and between Angle and Roode.
X-Division Championship: Austin Aries (c) vs. Brian Kendrick
TNA really needs to overhaul their entrance music department. 99% of their music is unrecognizable generic rock.
Aries comes out wearing a cape or something like that. Awesome.
Headlock by Aries sees him get sent to the ropes. He comes back with a stiff shoulder tackle. Head scissors on Kendrick but the former champ is able to use his speed advantage to get the better of Aries. "A Double" makes his way to the outside to collect himself but a dive from Kendrick flattens him out.
Slow start for this match. This is not the type of match these two should be working.
Aries back in control and work Kendrick over. The former champ tries to battle back but an STO puts him back on the mat. Aries takes too long setting up the Pendulum Elbow and gets booted in the face. Again, they're taking way too much time for some of this stuff.
Kendrick in control briefly but Aries is able to land the STO/Pendulum Elbow combination. He makes his way to the opposite and charges in but eats a boot. Kendrick hits a tornado DDT for two.
Kendrick spills to the outside and gets nailed with a suicide dive. Back inside, Aries nails his opponent with some back elbows in the corner and follows it up with a running dropkick.
Brainbuster is countered into a roll up for two. Kendrick attempts Sliced Bread but gets thrown off onto the top turnbuckle. Aries climbs up, they duke it out, and the challenger hits the Sliced Bread off the top rope! He covers but Aries grabs the bottom rope at two.
Kendrick tries to hit another Sliced Bread to the outside and gets thrown off and lands hard on the mat. Back inside, Aries connects with another running dropkick in the corner and then nails his opponent with a brainbuster for the win.
Match picked up steam at the end, would have been nice to see that pace all throughout, though.
Winner and STILL champion: Austin Aries
Backstage, Karen Angle is being an absolute chore to watch. She's yelling at Tracy aka Mini-Chyna and just generally being one of the worst things in TNA. She's apparently the special referee in the Knockouts title match.
Jerry Lynn/RVD video.
Full Metal Mayhem match: Rob Van Dam vs. Jerry Lynn
I'll never understand RVD's love of dragons and yin yangs. I guess it comes with being a huge pothead.
RVD in control early and a dropkick counter from Lynn drops the former ECW star to the mat. Lynn tries to a tornado DDT but RVD is able to counter with a snapmare.
Action spills to the outside. RVD tries to jump off the guard rail onto Lynn but nobody's home. Lynn pulls out a ladder to the delight of the crowd. Lynn slides the ladder partly into the ring and enters himself. RVD pulls a chair out but while posing for the crowd. Lynn baseball slides the ladder into opponent. Cool spot there.
Body splash from RVD onto the chair gets a two count.
Lynn gets whipped into the ladder and it falls on top of him. Naturally, RVD makes the most of the situation.
The ladder is propped onto the second rope and Lynn eats a suplex on it. Springboard moonsault from RVD onto Lynn! Nice! Gets a two count.
Lynn counters with a mid-air spear type move and props up a second ladder up against the guard rail. RVD teases a suplex onto the ladder from the apron but Lynn counters into a sunset flip powerbomb. As Lynn flipped over, his legs moved the ladder and RVD eats it on the mat. His head might have struck the guard rail too.
Back inside, Lynn grabs a chair and takes a swing at his opponent but gets countered with a Van Daminator. He sits Lynn in the corner, drapes a ladder over him and climbs to the top. RVD hits a freakin' Van Terminator onto the ladder and gets the pin. Match was okay but that last spot was gold.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
After the match, the two are all buddy buddy. That's... odd.
Three-way match: Matt Morgan vs. Crimson vs. Samoa Joe
Crimson and Morgan both attack Joe. An elbow from Crimson catches Morgan and Joe takes over. He invites Morgan to join in but he instead keeps up the attack on Joe.
Crimson charges towards Joe who pulls down the top rope and Crimson spills to the outside. Inside the ring, Joe and Morgan go out until Crimson slides back in continue the double team.
Joe ends up sending both of his opponents to the outside and nails Crimson with a suicide dive. He slaps around Crimson while Morgan climbs to the top. Joe gets out of the way and Morgan nails Crimson with a splash. Inside, Joe gets a two count.
Eventually, the union between the two faces breaks down and they go at it. The crowd is firmly behind Morgan. Joe makes his presence known again taking out Morgan and then brutalizing Crimson in the corner.
Joe tries to hit the Muscle Buster on Crimson but eats a boot to the gut from Morgan. Morgan then nails Joe with a running knee but gets his leg caught in the ropes. Crimson hits Joe with a spear and picks up the win.
Backstage, Jeremy Borash interviews Bully Ray who cuts a great promo.
Philadelphia Falls Count Anywhere Street Fight: Bully Ray vs. Mr. Anderson
The two waste no time getting to it and Mr. Anderson finds himself in control early. A big boot from Ray quickly changes that however.
A spinning kick gets Mr. Anderson a two count and he he grabs a sign from the audience that says, "Welcome to Philly, asshole." He nails Ray with it and rips the paper off to reveal it's a street sign. Oh, Mr. Anderson, you're so clever.
They're brawling on the outside and Ray gains control after reversing an irish whip into the ring steps for a two count.
Ruh roh! Here come the tables!
They brawl to the top of the entrance ramp and a suplex on the steel puts Mr. Anderson on the proverbial ropes. Ray is busted opened and it looks legit.
Ray calls for the microphone a la Anderson and starts to introduce himself. Before he was able to finish, Anderson interrupts and attacks him.
They make their way backstage and Ray hits Anderson with a piledriver on the concrete! Ray gets a two count for his trouble before attacking Anderson with a folding chair.
Sorry, I had baby issues to attend to. I'm back and the two have made their way back to the ring. A portion of guard rail is in the ring and Ray gets back dropped on it. Anderson climbs to the top and does a moonsault but Ray moves out of the way!
Ray puts Anderson through a table! He gets a two count.
He lays Anderson on the guard rail and misses his own splash from the second rope. Anderson hits Ray with a Mic Check onto the rail! Yikes! Two count!
This has been a fun brawl so far.
Anderson with a garbage can and he slams it on Ray's skull so lays across a conveniently placed table. Anderson climbs to the top rope... and overshoots! He hits Ray but not with enough impact to break the table. They salvage the end by hitting a second Mic Check through the table.
Winner: Mr. Anderson
Backstage, Eric Bischoff is being a creeper with his son, who will be the referee officiating the Hogan/Sting match. Eric Jr. says that he will have his dad's back.
Knockouts Championship four-way title match: Winter (c) vs. Velvet Sky vs. Mickie James vs. Madison Rayne
Sky is out first and all I can say is Chris Sabin is a lucky, lucky man.
Winter comes out with Angelina Love who has got to have the least intimidating figure in all of women's wrestling. Seriously, without the implants, she's probably a buck five, soaking wet.
Also, call me crazy but Winter's Euro-style Evanescence-ripoff theme is awesomely terrible.
So apparently only two Knockouts in the ring at once. Is this match elimination-style? Winter and James start us off.
Rayne and Sky are going at it now and a pin attempt from Sky goes unnoticed by Karen Jarrett who pretends she's tying her shoe. She then forces Sky and James in the ring to face off much to their chagrin.
Seriously, Velvet Sky is stupid hot.
Sky takes over with a head scissors takedown and the two begin slugging it out. They both bounce off the ropes but get pulled out by Winter and Rayne.
We get a ref bump spot and Jarrett is out! Everyone is in the ring, going nuts. Tracy runs out -- for whatever reason -- and then Sky hits her finisher on Rayne. Jarrett is still out so Tracy makes the count.
Winner and NEW champion: Velvet Sky
Backstage, JB talks with Kazarian.
I Quit match: A.J. Styles vs. Christopher Daniels
The two immediately start brawling. Styles takes control early on and nails Daniels with kicks to the back. He puts a microphone in front of his and asks him if he wants to quit. Daniels refuses and gets nailed with the mic. Backbreaker and gutbusters from "The Phenomenal One" and a delay suplex lands Daniels in another submission hold.
This match has been all Styles so far. A dropkick sends Daniels to the outside and Styles joins him by diving over the ropes.
Daniels kicks Styles to the steps and reaches underneath the ring and pulls out a wrench. He throws it at his opponent but Styles is able to move out of the way.
They end up on the apron when Daniels avoids getting suplexed to the outside. Daniels is able to lift Styles up and drop him, taking control of the match.
Camel clutch by Daniels doesn't get Styles to quit, neither does a single-leg crab.
Daniels put a chair over his opponent and pops a squat. Daniels mocks him on the mic as the steel presses against his opponent's neck.
Daniels tells Styles' wife to put the kids away since their daddy is going to be murdered. Yikes.
"The Fallen Angel" misses with the chair shot and Styles starts to take control. He picks up the chair but doesn't do anything with it. Styles grabs a screwdriver and backs Daniels into the corner. Daniels quits and adds, "Please don't hurt me anymore."
Um, pretty lame finish.
Winner: A.J. Styles
After the match, Daniels runs back out and attacks Styles. He nails Styles with an Angel's Wings at the top of the entrance ramp.
Jeff Jarrett slowly makes his way to the ring.
He talking trash about Jeff Hardy and Philadelphia.
Jeff Hardy comes out with a shirt that has a negative of his mugshot. Okay, that's pretty cool. He still has that stupid, long hanky though.
The two start to brawl until security comes in to separate them. BATTLE OF THE JEFFS!
Video from Hogan/Sting
Hulk Hogan vs. Sting
Hogan's hands are taped up. Nice touch.
The match starts and Hogan calls in Ric Flair.
Sting gets a headlock to start off. Hogan sends Sting to the ropes and knocks him down. He poses in front of the Stinger and the two get down to business.
So far, this match is everything I feared it would be.
Sting gets sent to the outside where Flair chokes him with his coat and hits a low blow. Hogan comes out and does the same and continues the attack outside.
Hogan grabs some brass knuckles something and Sting gets busted open. He ends up getting control of the match and goes the same to Hogan. Stinger Splash on Hogan and Sting sets up the Scorpion Deathlock.
He applies the hold and taps out! Sting wins! Flair chop blocks Sting from behind and Immortal comes out with chairs. They destroy Sting while Abyss watches from the back.
Eric Jr. grabs a chair from his daddy in order to stop the attack and Ray grabs him by the collar. Eric gets the chair back and hits his own son! What a snake! As the beatdown continues, Sting pleads to Hogan for some reason and then we get a Hogan face turn.
They clear the ring of Immortal -- except for Bischoff -- and face off. Then Hogan punches Bischoff.
Yeah, I don't know.
Video for Angle/Roode.
They lock up and Roode slaps on a Crippler Crossface. Angle makes his way to the outside with Roode in hot pursuit. They roll back in but Angle delivers a kick as Roode climbs in.

Angle hits two Germans and is going for a third but it's countered into another Crossface. Angle breaks the hold by reaching out under the bottom rope.
They get back to their feet and Angle hits a spear for two. Some shenanigans commence and and Angle uses the ropes for leverage in a pin attempt. Roode's arm was also under the bottom rope.
Will we get a restart?
Nope. That's how the event ends.
Wow, TNA... just wow.
