Roode can’t believe he’s getting booed, or is he hearing a “Roode” chant. He insults the fans for cheering him last week and asks why they hate him. Was it for killing Beer Money, or taking advantage of the same opportunity he had? This is a new generation of selfishness and he is the leader of it. Doing things the right way gets you nothing and nowhere. This is a dog-eat-dog world according to Roode and he ate Storm for lunch. He didn’t see it coming and that’s on James.
He came to a realization at Bound for Glory that after 13 long hard years, the opportunities only come along so often, so he made the best of it against his former tag partner. Today, Storm is in a hole in the wall drowning his sorrows, while Roode is the new World Heavyweight Champion.
While Roode is cutting his promo, Storm is trying to make his way to the ring. Eventually he does, and Roode runs. Sting’s music hits while security corrals Storm. Sting asks where Bobby is going. He asks Roode about taking shortcuts last week and quotes his selfish generation comments. Sting says he prefers Macon and James Storm, and sets up the rematch between Storm and Roode for the title. Roode is livid, and Storm smiles. Sting quotes Storm’s catchphrase and lets the fans finish it.
Taz and Tenay run down the card: Daniels will face AJ Styles, Velvet Sky and Mickie James will challenge Gail Kim and Madison Rayne for the Knockouts Tag titles, and Ronnie and EY will face Rob Terry and Robbie E. Commercial.

A video package airs of the exchange between Matt Morgan and Crimson from last week. This sets up a match between Morgan and Crimson at Turning Point.
Match #1 – The Pope, D’Angelo Dinero vs. Crimson
Pope comes to the ring first, and the announcers talk about how it would turn heads if Pope were the man to end Crimson’s undefeated streak.
The two men exchange some chain wrestling holds. Pope kicks Crimson low and hits a DDT for a two, then follows with fist drops. They exchange strikes and Pope hits a big uppercut. Pope goes to the top rope for a move, but Crimson counters to the Red Sky powerbomb for the win.
Backstage, Gunner addresses Garrett Bischoff. He says there’s a chain of command he’s followed since his military days. He tells Garrett his dad, Eric, is at the top of the chain and he’s going to deal with Garrett shortly. It will be a walk in the park.
Match #2 – Gunner (w/Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff) vs. Garrett Bischoff
As Gunner makes his way out, they reset the story that brought us to this point. Last week, Garrett beat down Eric, and Sting set this match up. Taz calls this a mismatch.
After a few minutes of posing, and Gunner talking to Flair and Bischoff at ringside, Garrett catches Gunner with a couple of quick arm drags, a hip toss, and a back body drop. Flair gets involved, going after the official, and the match gets thrown out. Garrett backs up the ramp and Tenay reminds us that Sting now has the opportunity to rewrite Eric Bischoff’s contract even with Garrett just participating and picking up the win by DQ.
Winner: Garrett Bischoff
Backstage Robbie E and Robbie T show up at Ronnie’s locker room, and a security guy won’t let them in. EY and Ronnie stick their faces out and the two teams exchange words. Robbie E gets slapped by Ronnie and he jumps on Robbie T’s back, telling him to hold him back. The announcers sell their upcoming match, and the World Heavyweight title rematch.
Back from commercial and Storm is found laying against a wall, bloodied. Trainers swarm in and help him to his feet. He’s very dazed and the announcers wonder if we’ll have the title match later.
Match #3 – Zema Ion vs. Jesse Sorensen
Sorensen takes control in the early going, and hits a springboard cross body. Ion comes back with a tilt-o-whirl face buster. He takes a bit too long to go up top, and misses his dive since Sorensen is able to move out of the way. Sorensen followed with his neck breaker for the win.
Winner: Jesse Sorensen
After the match, Kid Kash comes out and calls him as impressive as one of the fans. Kash calls Jesse “Mr. 10 minutes in the business” and says Sorensen thinks he can do whatever he wants. He’s going to give Sorensen the opportunity of a lifetime. He calls it impressive that Jesse beat the champion last week.
Kash says he’s giving Sorensen something tonight. He sets up Sorensen vs. Aries vs. Kash, and has the contract with him, missing only one signature. He demands Sorensen sign, and he eventually does. Kash tells him he just made the biggest mistake of his career and insults Sorensen’s mother. Sorensen hammers away on Kash, but Aries dashes out to join the party. The two beat down Soerensen thoroughly.
Backstage, Karen, Gail, and Madison are getting ready, and Traci Brooks is standing in the background. They talk about their plan to beat down Velvet and soften her up for Gail Kim to take the Knockouts Title on Sunday at Turning Point.

Match # 4 – Velvet Sky (c) and Mickie James vs. Gail Kim and Madison Rayne (w/Karen Jarrett, Knockouts Tag Champions); TNA Knockouts Tag Championship

Match #5 – Robbie E and Robbie T vs. Eric Young and Ronnie
The Robbie pair comes out first and poses in the ring. EY has both belts on his waist this time as they make their way to the ring. Tenay says this is something we’ve been waiting for for weeks.
Ronnie starts with Robbie E, but Robbie T gets the tag. EY tags himself in to take on Big Rob. EY locks up with the official, but it creates an opening for him to deliver a drop kick.
Robbie E gets the tag again and works over EY. Robbie T takes over where E left off. They hit a double team move for a near fall on EY. Ronnie gets taunted and that opens the door for EY to counter.

Rob Van Dam makes an appearance to steal the screwdriver from Daniels. On the distraction, AJ is able to deliver a backbreaker followed by the Styles Clash for the win.

After the break, Abyss is announced as their partner. Bully Ray looks shocked and Jarrett is pissed. The teams stare down each other for a few minutes before order is restored and the match starts.

Jarrett gets the tag and works Hardy to the corner, but Hardy counters and hits Whisper in the Wind. Both men get tags.
Abyss is on fire, hitting clotheslines on everyone. He hits the Shock Treatment on Jarrett then gets clotheslined outside by Bully Ray. It’s a full-on scrum now as finishers are getting exchanged. Abyss hits Steiner with the Black Hole Slam for the win. The faces celebrate as the Immortal members lick their wounds outside the ring.
Winners: Jeff Hardy, Abyss, Ken Anderson
The announcers debate if James Storm should be competing here. They show video clips of Storm being tended to earlier in the evening. Taz respects the pride and drive of Storm but he shouldn’t be competing.
Match #8 – James Storm vs. Bobby Roode (c); TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Roode makes his way out to the ring. Introductions come up after the break. Storm’s music hits, but he doesn’t appear. Roode smiles, thinking it’s a good thing. They try the music again and this time Storm comes out, staggering and still all bloody from the attack earlier.
No introductions here, as Storm attacks Roode right from the go. He attacks with right hands, hard whip to the corner and a back body drop. Storm doesn’t have the oomph to keep going though and he falls to the mat. A doctor comes to ringside and the official holds Roode off. The doctor can be heard saying “I tried to keep him from coming out” and “he needs to go to the hospital.”
Roode and the official try to help Storm to his feet. Roode asks if the match is over and if the bell hasn’t rung. Roode rolls Storm up to get a count and celebrates, saying he beat Storm again. Sting makes his way to the ring. Kaz and AJ come to the ring also to check on Storm.
Winner: Bobby Roode
