StorylinesEdit

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.[2]

EventEdit

Prior to the start of the event, Mike Tenay and Don West announced that the event would be dedicated to Ernie Ladd who died the day before.

The first match of the pay-per-view was a Ghetto Brawl. This match saw the NWA World Tag Team Champions The Latin American Xchange (Homicide and Hernandez) take on Team 3D (Brother Ray and Brother Devon) in a non-title match. The winner of the match is the first team to put their opponent through a table and pick up a pinfall. LAX picked up the win when Alex Shelley interfered and frog splashed Devon through a table.

The second match was a Double Bullrope match between James Storm and Jacqueline Moore defeated Petey Williams and Gail Kim. After Storm attempted to superkick Williams, Williams moved but got hit by a low blow by Moore. Storm once again went for the superkick, and after hitting storm with it was able to pick up the victory via pinfall.

The next match was a Crossface Chickenwing match. The match saw Senshi take on Austin Starr, with Bob Backlund, who used the move as his finisher, at ringside. When Starr had the Crossface Chickenwing on Senshi, Backlund told the referee that Senshi's foot was under the bottom rope and the referee called for the break. Starr then began screaming and Backlund and with Starr distracted, Senshi gets the Crossface Chickenwing on Starr and picks up the submission victory. After the match, Starr attacks Backlund and applies the Crossface Chickenwing on him, until the referee breaks it up.

The next match saw The Voodoo Kin Mafia (B.G. James and Kip James) defeated The Heartbreakers (Antonio Thomas and Romeo Roselli).

The following match, for the TNA X Division Championship, saw the champion Chris Sabin defend his title against Jerry Lynn, in a Two out of Three Falls Match. Lynn won the first fall after hitting a tornado DDT off the second rope. Sabin picks up the second fall after powerbombing Lynn and utilizing the bottom rope for leverage. The match ended after someone in a Sting mask appeared on the ramp, distracting Lynn, which enabled Sabin to hit Lynn with a low blow followed by the cradle shock, and win the third fall.

A Scaffold match referred to as a Elevation X match was next. The match saw Rhino take on A.J. Styles, on a platform above the ring. The platform was approximately 20 inches wide, and shaped like an X, two stories above the ring. The first person to fall off the platform into the ring would lose the match. When Styles attempted to hit Rhino with white powder, Rhino was able to turn it on Styles who got hit with it instead. Rhino then gored Styles, knocking him off, however Styles was able to hold on. Rhino then stomped on Styles' fingers, who fell into the ring, to give Rhino the win.

The next match saw Kurt Angle defeat Scott Steiner. After the match, the crowd chanted "that was weak" showing their dissatisfaction in the match.

The second to last match was a Last Rites match between Sting and Abyss. Sting ultimately picks up the victory by getting Abyss into the casket, which is raised to the ceiling following the match.

The main event was for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. This match saw Christian Cage defend his title against Samoa Joe. Joe attempted to get the clutch on Cage, however Cage hit Joe with a low blow. Cage went to a move off the top however Joe hit him with an Enziguri. Cage kicked out but Joe got the clutch locked in. Cage however while Joe still has it locked in, is able to get Joe's shoulders down while using the ropes for leverage.
