The match barely got started and Sorensen was bumped on the floor taking a top rope huracanrana and Ion’s knee knocked out Sorensen and they counted him out at 4:03 and looks to have been hurt legit.

A video previewing the Gail Kim Vs Tara match follows

Kim has the advantage and all of a sudden Rayne leaves and goes backstage sao they are teasing the breakup between Kim and Rayne.
Kim attacks the right knee of Tara that has the brace on it. Kim hits a top rope huracanrana but then leads to Tara fighting back and hitting a tilt-a-whirl side slam for a two-count. The two climb to the top and Tara hits a back body drop to Kim from the top and then a moonsault to Kim and Tara selling her knee.
Kim blocks the Widow’s Peak and hits Eat Da Feet for the win at 6:46.
Hemme is with James Storm in the back and says tonight is about revenge and Roode took what he worked 15-years for and has wanted Roode to keep the title so he can take it from him.

Hemme with Bully Ray and just rails on Hemme and says no matter how much make up she puts on and skanky oufit she wears she will never look good and takes the microphone and yells ‘go away feeble woman’. He says he isn’t the dark horse but the thoroughbred and will win the title.

Kazarian comes out with Christopher Daniels and is wearing a Daniels t-shirt.
A.J. Styles Vs Kazarian
Styles rips off the Daniels shirt. The crowd is chanting ‘Daniels sucks’ at ringside.
A weird spot where Styles went for a leap frog early and Kazarian ran into him as he landed on his feet and then Kazarian was tossed to the floor. Styles hits a flying forearm off the apron to the floor and then applies Indian death lock in the ring but Kazarian reaches the ropes.
Kazarian comes back, hits a running dropkick and both are working hard but crowd is not into the match much. Styles tries for the Styles Clash but Kazarian reverses out with a head scissors. Kazarian leaps over the top rope and DDTs Styles onto the apron. Kazarian sling shots Styles into the ring and hits an Ace Crusher in mid-air for a two-count.

Styles goes for a springboard into the ring but changes his mind and hits moonsault to Daniels in the floor but as Styles returns to the ring he takes the Omori Driver from Kazarian and he gets the win at 18:39.
Hemme is with Eric Bischoff and Gunner. Bischoff says he is a bit pissed off that Hogan has inserted himself into his family business but also grateful because Hogan can understand how dangerous this situation is and that Gunner will destroy Garret. Eric cuts a sarcastic tearful promo about putting Garret into this spot and wants Hogan to throw in the towel when it gets too bad. I sense a Bret Hart Vs Bob Backlund finish from the ’94 Survivor Series.
Gunner Vs Garret Bischoff
Eric Bischoff is in the corner of Gunner and Hulk Hogan in the corner of Garret. Hogan gets the biggest reaction of the night thus far.
Garret works on the left arm and is distracted by Eric and is the first tease of Hogan getting involved at ringside. Garret is controlling the entire first portion of the match. Gunner finally gets the heat by attacking him from behind and stomps down on Garret. Gunner continues to work him over until Garret goes for a flapjack and nearly drops him in a bad position.
Eric hits Garret with the referee distracted and Hogan decks Eric for the biggest pop of the match. Gunner hits a neck breaker as Hogan tells Garret to get back up and will stop it if he doesn’t get up. Hogan teases throwing the towel in but Garret says ‘no’ and Gunner hits a DDT for the win at 12:02.
Tenay and Borash throw to Christy Hemme for yet another interview and this time with Sting. He says Roode will not walk away from the match or cheat to keep the title. He will make sure there is a clear cut winner tonight.
Bobby Roode Vs James Storm Vs Bully Ray Vs Jeff Hardy for the TNA Title with Sting as the Special Enforcer
Bully Ray goes to the floor right away and won’t help Roode. Ray returns to the ring and hits a uranage to Roode after he is tossed off the top rope and gets a two. Storm then hits a back cracker and gets a two-count.
Roode and Storm hit a double team vertical suplex to Ray and then tease the ‘Beer Money’ chant but they attack one another. Hardy hits the Whisper in the Wind to Roode and then taken out with a big boot from Ray.
Fans start chanting ‘Devon’s better’ at Bully Ray.
We get a Tower of Doom spot with Roode taking the superplex.
Hardy with the Twist of Fate to Ray but the referee is distracted
Roode with a spinebuster to Ray but then Hardy with a Twist of Fate but misses the swanton. Roode is on the floor and takes the title from So Cal Val and into the ring while Hardy is out but Sting grabs the title. Sting goes to hit Roode with the title but Roode ducks and Sting takes out Hardy and Roode gets on top and Sting reluctantly counts three at 15:06.
