This show begins with Lashley walking into the arena with his TNA World Heavyweight Championship, TNA X Division Championship and TNA King Of The Mountain Championship belts. He walks over to Aron Rex, Lashley stares him down before walking off.
We open Impact in the ring with James Storm coming down to the ring, Storm grabs a mic and talks about how he pinned Lashley last week, but the ref wasn't looking. Storm calls out Brian Hebner, Brian comes into the ring. Brian says that he did nothing wrong, Storm then starts shouting. Billy Corgan comes down, Storm brings a hammer into the ring and starts ripping up the turnbuckle. This segment leads to James Storm smashing a security guard in the head with a hammer...Corgan suspends James Storm.
We see James Storm driving away from the arena in his car, then we get Eddie Edwards vs. Moose. This was okay, the match went for about six minutes. Eric Young was at ringside representing Moose, Young got involved in this match on several occasions. In the end Moose hit his really cool finisher on Eddie Edwards to get the victory. Then we get backstage scenes of the Knockouts talking to each other about the upcoming match. Gail Kim vs. Jade came next, this was solid for the most part. Then Sienna (I think it was) came down, grabbed Gail Kim before hitting an AK47 on the floor. Then Sienna laid out Jade. Christie Hemme comes down and says that Gail Kim will never be Knockouts Champion again.
Backstage three X-Division guys are surrounding Lashley, they are telling him that the winner of the next match will challenge him for the X-Division title. We then get a Fatal 4 Way X Division match, I didn't know any of the guys in this match besides DJ-Z, this match felt really chereographed...DJ-Z won the match, so I guess he will be the first guy to lose to triple belt Lashley. Backstage Billy Corgan is talking to Dixie Carter, he says that what James Storm did was totally out of control.
To begin the 2nd hour of Impact we get Ethan Carter the Third coming down and cutting a promo, he talks for a minute before Drew Galloway comes out. Drew Galloway talks about how he has had three shots at the TNA World Title, but each of those times he was screwed by one EC3. EC3 accepts the challenge, then Aaron Rex comes down and talks about how he will be the special guest referee for their match. Backstage Eli Drake tells Lashley that that King of the Mountain title is his.
In the ring Eli Drake is cutting a really good promo about how Lashley is scared of fighting him, Mahabali Shera comes down, these two then have a match, This went for two minutes and Eli Drake won, Eli Drake is a guy who looks like a legit powerhouse, he cuts really good promos, he's my favorite wrestler in TNA.
Then we get Lashley in the ring, he is standing in the middle of the ring with the TNA World Title on his waist, there are two guys behind him holding his other titles. He calls out Dixie and Corgan, they come out. Lashley then talks about how the King Of The Mountain title is GARBAGE and how the X-Division title means nothing. Lashley storms out after disrespecting Dixie Carter and Billy Corgan, then Corgan announces that next week will be a Battle Royal to determine the #1 contender to Lashley's World Title.
Our main event of the evening was a Fatal 4 Way ladder war to determine the #1 contenders to the TNA Tag Team Titles, I gathered two main things out of this match. That Brother Nero Jeff Hardy is now Broken Brother Nero, he came out and looked like an absolute mess. What this match also proved to me is that TNA want to put on entertaining main events for their fans. This match saw all eight guys involved flying around, Trevor Lee did some mad spots in this match. In the end Broken Matt scaled the ladder before retrieving the contract for the title match. After the match Matt and Jeff leave as Broken Matt is laughing uncontrollably.
Overall Show Grade: Good; This is so hard for me to say, but TNA just put on a better show then RAW or Smackdown. The opening of this show was really entertaining, James Storm smashing a bottle over the head of a security guard before getting suspended was a great way to begin the show. The concept of Lashley holding 3 titles at the same time is also something that I like, he's a legit looking guy who can create some very interesting storylines from this. When he called the KOTM title GARBAGE I was laughing hysterically.
The main event of this show was really entertaining as well, the Fatal 4 Way ladder match for the #1 Contendership saw the winners Broken Matt and Broken Brother Nero earn their title match. Eli Drake is a guy who I really like watching on TV because he's a real wrestler. This show is definitely worth a watch.
