The pay-per-view itself started with a Little Italy Street Fight between The Latin American Exchange (Homicide and Hernandez) and Team 3D (Brother Ray and Brother Devon). Prior to the start of the match, there were small tables set up in the ring to represent an Italian bistro. Devon hit a reverse DDT on Hernandez, but Hernandez kicked out at 2. He was then able to hit Devon with the Border Toss to pick up the victory.
The next match saw Senshi defeat Austin Starr, after missing a Warriors Way from the top, followed by a chickenwing. After the match, Starr begins filling the ring with chairs. He then grabbed the mic and started complaining about the match. Bob Backlund came out and put his own chickenwing on Starr before dragging him to the back.
The following match was a Tuxedo match between Christy Hemme and the "Big Fat Oily Guy". Christy ultimately won the match when she removed the pants of the "Big Fat Oily Guy” to reveal an ill-fitting G-string.
The next match was a "Basebrawl" match between Lance Hoyt and Dale Torborg. Hoyt came to the ring for the match with David Eckstein and Torborg came out with A. J. Pierzynski. Hoyt picked up the win after Eckstein hit Torborg with a steel chair.
Next was a strap match labelled as a "Motor City Chain match". This match saw A.J. Styles face off against Rhino. The match was set up with the chain and a pole in two corners, one with a key and one with a nightstick. Styles picked up the victory after Rhino attempted to Gore him through the table, but Styles moved out of the way and Rhino went through the table.
The TNA X Division Championship match was next, seeing Chris Sabin successfully defending his title against Jerry Lynn. During the match, Sabin hit Lynn with a Spiralbomb which injured his back. When Lynn later went for a piledriver, his back gave out, forcing him to drop Sabin. Sabin used this opportunity to capitalize and pick up the victory, covering Lynn while using the ropes for leverage.
The next match was a mixed tag team match which saw James Storm and Jacqueline Moore take on Petey Williams and Gail Kim. While Kim had Moore rolled up, Storm kicked Kim in the face, enabling Moore to cover her and pick up the victory. After the match, Storm went to hit Williams with a beer bottle, but he was able to avoid it. Storm then hit Williams with a superkick and Moore then jumped on Williams’ back followed by a DDT. As they attempted to hit him with a Death Sentence, Chris Harris made his return and ran in to make the save.
The second to last match was a Prison Yard match between Sting and Abyss. Inside the ring was a cage, and the first person to lock their opponent in the cage would be declared the winner. When James Mitchell interfered, Sting put him in the Scorpion Deathlock, which gave Abyss the opportunity to attack him from behind. Abyss then picked up Sting and put him through a table. Sting then put a barbwire board on the table and powerbombed Abyss off the cage and through the barbwire. Sting then put Abyss in the cage to pick up the victory.
The final match saw the NWA World Heavyweight Championship being defended, when Christian Cage took on the challenger Kurt Angle. Tomko, who came out to the ring with Cage, was ejected prior to the match. After he left, Samoa Joe came out with a chair and sat on the ramp to watch the match. During the match, Tomko came back out and attacked Joe while Scott Steiner came out and began attacking Angle. Joe eventually dove from the ring onto Steiner and Tomko outside the ring, and the three fought to the back. In the ensuing chaos, the referee was knocked down, which enabled Cage to hit Angle with a steel pipe. He then hit Angle with the Unprettier and pinned him to retain the title.
