Trevor Lee vs. DJ Z (c) for the X Division championship

There's back and forth chain wrestling to start off. Trevor Lee uses a kick to Z's leg to try for the advantage but DJ Z responds with a drop kick. Trevor tries a couple different things to take charge, but Z has his number in the early goings.

DJ Z was setting up for a spring board into the ring, but the ref was blocking him checking on Trevor. That gave Lee enough time to hit Z with a big kick when DJ finally tried to jump into the ring. DJ Z falls to the outside and Lee follows up with a kick from the ring apron. This gives the challenge control of the match.

DJ Z takes some punishment for a little bit. Finally, he is able to catch Trevor coming off the middle turnbuckle with a flap jack. He goes up top himself but Lee runs up to meet him... but Lee hits a big Frankensteiner! He then follows up with a big clothesline. He goes for his rolling DDT but Lee rolls outside to avoid it.

The champ follows up with a dive over up the top rope. But as he slides Lee back in the ring, Lee hits a suicide dive of his own! Then when he goes to slide DJ Z in, Z follows up with a third dive onto Lee!

Back in the ring, Trevor Lee hits a flying bodyslam on the champ but only gets a 2 count. Lee then goes for his dead lift German Supplex but DJ Z lands in the electric chair position and hits a reverse rana! After a series of fun moves, Lee finally hits his German Suplex but DJ Z kicks out at 2!

After some more back and forth, Z goes for his ZDT but Trevor Lee counters with double foot stomps! Kick to the head! Only a 2 count!

When Trevor Lee goes to pick up DJ Z, Z hits what looks to be a Canadian Destoryer and follows up with the ZDT for the win!

The Broken Hardy Clan vs. Decay for the tag team championships

Reby sits at a piano set up on the stage and plays Broken Matt Hardy out... and then transitions into the Obsolete song and Brother Nero comes out! Nero sings the Obsolete song! They go to the ring and lead the crowd in the "Delete" chant.

The Decay come out to their entrance, which is pretty cool, but it would have been nice to add a little to it for the big match.

At the beginning of the match, all three members of Decay spray the mist at Reby!

In the ring, Steve and Matt fight in the ring. Outside, Abyss is working on Brother Nero. Steve and Rosemary try to suplex Matt outside the ring through a table set up on the outside. He fights them off. However Steve attacks Matt with a trash can, holds it over Matt, and Rosemary hits coast to coast!

In the ring, Abyss and Jeff find themselves there. Abyss has a staple gun that he tries to use on the head of Nero. Jeff fights it off at first but when he tries to sunset Abyss, Abyss staples hit head!

Now Abyss and Matt are fighting their way to the back. Backstage, Abyss tosses Matt into a bunch of chairs set up and starts taking it to the Broken One. Meanwhile, Jeff and Steve fight backstage themselves. Steve is working over Jeff who is reaching for a bin LABELED "LAKE OF REGENERATION"! THEY BROUGHT THEIR LAKE!

Meanwhile, Abyss and Matt fight next to the Universal sign.

Steve spits into the lake and pours it on Jeff -- but then Jeff disappears!

Abyss and Matt fight further out into the grounds.

Jeff reappears with some weird character with goggles and tosses pumpkins at Steve. If that is someone from Jeff's past, I don't know who it is. Rosemary tries to interfere and he puts one of the pumpkins on her head. She spits mist into his face and Steve tells her to go aid Abyss.

Meanwhile, Abyss has the control of Matt. Rosemary shoes up with Janice to finish the job. But a truck pulls up and a random guy gets out and says he's on Team Delete and wants to fight him. So Rosemary kicks him in the nads.

Back to Steve, who is now contending with Willow!

In the bed of the truck, Matt shoots fire out of his hands and lights Janice on fire. The truck starts driving down the road as they continue to fight in the bed of the truck! They pull over and come face to face VG1 - who initiates poison mist protocol!

Willow takes Steve back to the ring and then comes out with a ladder. Steve fights Willow off and hits a senton into the Jeff against the ring steps. He turns around again and Willow is gone.

Off premises, it looks like Matt and Abyss are fighting back into the arena.  All the members look to be back in the live arena. Poetry in Motion in the ring on Abyss! Followed up by a Swanton by Nero and a Twist of Fight by Matt! Only a two count!

Abyss goes for his patented barbed wire board and tosses it in the ring. Oh make that two. Abyss tries to chokeslam Matt onto one of the board but Matt goes for a low blow. He then grabs the bag of tacks, puts them on the board, and side effects Abyss onto it. He then puts the other board on top... and then delivers a second rope elbow on the top! He goes for the cover- by Rosemary interrupts it!

Rosemary is on the apron looking to mist Matt... but Reby powerbombs her through a table! Nero then reappears, sets up a chair around the neck of Steve, and runs it into the post! They send Steve back in with the chair still around his neck and Matt hits a Twist of Fate!

Matt then sets up some tables and Nero sets up a ladder... and Matt grabs the ladder and tells him he's allowing him to indulge in his spot monkey addictions. They set Steve up on the table... and Jeff Swantons him through the table!

Jeff covers Steve for the win!

Maria tells Gail that she's not cleared to wrestle, but Allie said that Maria must have misunderstood because the doctor said she could. Maria calls her an idiot and say she's not fighting.

When Gail Kim slides out, Maria smacks her and then is able to take control in the ring. Bennett comes out to ring side to help Maria keep control. While Bennett is distracting the ref, Maria uses her brace to nail Gail Kim but only gets a 2 count.

Maria is now ordering Allie toss the brace back in, but Allie overshoots it and it lands in Gail's hands. Gail tosses it out of the ring and then goes to work on Maria. She locks in the ring post figure four as the Miracle is flipping out on the outside.

Gail then gives Maria the double bird, hits Eat the Defeat, and wins with the 1-2-3.

EC3 vs. Bobby Lashley (c) for the TNA championship

As JB is introducing EC3, Lashley spears him! He then forces JB to finish announcing him! When the ref asks if EC3 is good to go, Carter orders him to ring the bell.

Lashley has control of the challenger early. EC3 fights back with some chops but it's not enough and Bobby continues to work over Carter.

EC3 eventually fights back, including a suicide dive onto Lashley. As Lashley is regrouping on the ramp, Carter runs at him... and Lashley hits a HUGE spinebuster on the entry ramp! He then starts delivering the punches to Carter. Now Lashley starts unloading his brand of domination.

Finally Carter is able to hit a drop kick to Lashley, nail him in the corner, and then follow up with a throw. He hits a cutter (he didn't hit all of it) for a 2 count. However when Carter pushes Lashley into the corner, the champ comes out with a spear! 2 count!

Lashley sets up a torture rack but EC3 reverses it into a choke of his own. Bobby has the power to stand and tosses Carter off.

The men start exchanging moves. Bobby hits a running power slam for a nearfall. He then goes and grabs his world title and tries to nail Carter with it. EC3 ducks and hits the TK3 but is too exhausted to get a cover. When both men are up, it's EC3 who hits a German Suplex... and then a spear of his own! Nearfall!

Outside the ring, on the ring steps, EC3 calls Lashley a piece of shit, gets him in the firemans carry, and then drops him with the TK3 on the steel steps. He follows up with a frog splash in the ring but Lashley kicks out.

But then he misses with the EC3 splash and Lashley hits a spear. But that only gets a nearfall as well. This forces Bobby to get a chair to use. And he starts unloading on Carter. And then locks in the choke... but EC3 isn't yet choked out. He's fighting it!

He uses his momentum to sit and then stand up... and then he fights out of the hold! A series of clotheslines... and a series of German Suplexes a la Kurt Angle! One Percenter! 1-2... kick out!

Now Carter has the steel chair and nails Lashley once with it, puts Lashley on the top turnbuckle... but Lashley pushes him off... Spear from the top rope! Lashley retains!
