The event featured wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
Prior to the start of the broadcast there was a dark match which saw Shannon Moore defeat Cassidy Riley. This was followed by one preshow match which entailed The Diamonds in the Rough (David Young and Elix Skipper) defeating Shark Boy and Norman Smiley.
The opening match of the pay-per-view saw Jay Lethal take on Alex Shelley. Toward the end of the match, Lethal hit the diving head butt off the top for a near fall, nut Shelley kicked out. Lethal then went for a suplex, however Shelley blocked it hitting Sliced Bread #2 for the victory.
Next the next match was between The Naturals (Chase Stevens and Andy Douglas) and Team Canada (Bobby Roode and Eric Young). Ultimately Team Canada picked up the victory after using a hockey stick as a weapon.
A six-man tag team match was next which saw The James Gang (B.G. James and Kip James) and Bob Armstrong take on The Latin American Xchange (Homicide, Hernandez and Machete). Although Homicide spent most of the match in the ring, the match ended when Machete was left alone in the ring. Kip hits Machete with a cobra slutch slam to pick up the victory.
The next match was a four way match between Petey Williams, Chris Sabin, Sonjay Dutt and Puma. The match ended with a series of finishing moves hit on each other. First Williams has the sharpshooter on Puma before Dutt breaks it up. Then Dutt hits a piledriver on Williams, followed by trying to hit Williams with the Canadian Destroyer, however Williams reverses it and hits it on him. Sabin then tried a Cradle Shock, Petey tried a Destroyer and ultimately Puma hit a blockbuster on Sabin. Sabin kicks out and hits the Craddle Shock on Puma to pick up the win.
The next match was a 4 on 4 match called an 8-Man War match. This match saw Team 3D (Brother Ray and Brother Devon), Rhino and Ron Killings take on America's Most Wanted (Chris Harris and James Storm), Jeff Jarrett and Abyss. Toward the end of the match, Killings attempted to get his team an advantage by taking Harris' handcuffs and locking him up outside the ring. Harris however was able to grab Killings' foot which gave Jarrett the opening he needed to hit The Stroke and pick up the victory.
The second to last match was an Ultimate X match for the TNA X Division Championship. This match saw Samoa Joe defend his title against Christopher Daniels and A.J. Styles. After Styles went for the X, Joe attacked him with a chair. Daniels then kicked the chair back into Joe's face enabling him to climb up and grab the X and win the championship.
The main event was for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. This match saw Christian Cage fend his title against Monty Brown. At the end of the match, Brown attempted to hit the Alpha Bomb however Cage reversed it and hit the Unprettier to retain the championship.
