-Opening video package.
-We are LIVE in Orlando!
-Taz and Tenay welcome us to the show.
-Joseph Park is in the ring, and asks us to bare with him. he says he has been around long enough to know what open fight night is all about. He is not a wrestler, but is a damn fine attorney. But after Aces and eights violated his basic civil rights, he has decided that he is a man, one that will stick up for himself. While Hogan has not given him a match with a member of Aces and Eights, but open fight night is a loophole, and he challenges any member of Aces and Eights to a fight.
-And here they come from the special back entrance. Four of them come to the ring, and Park notes that he only challenged one member to a fight. They surround the ring, and then enter. Kurt Angle’s music hits and he is pissed and attacks. They gang up on Angle, and Sting now hits the ring with a bat and chases them off. Park is happy to see him and Sting has the mic. He says tonight is open fight night, and tonight someone from Aces and Eights will lose a mask.

-Magnus makes his way to the ring. Magnus says he is calling out Samoa Joe for a TV Title match, because he has an issue with Joe holding the title. Joe is not the image TNA is looking for. Joe is like Howard Stern, people like him, but he has a radio face.
-Joe makes his way out, and it looks like it’s on.
Joe attacks as soon as he hits the ring, hits the big enziguri in the corner and then follows with head butts. To the corner, boot by Magnus, leaps off the ropes and into an atomic drop. Running boot, senton by Joe follows for 2. Jabs by Joe, off the ropes now and a high knee by Magnus connects and he covers for 2. Joe fights back with kicks, but a clothesline by Magnus levels him.

-Jeff Hardy paints his face backstage, and we get to hear his inner monologue.
-Daniels and Kaz make their way to the ring. Kaz is amused tat Sting wants to unmask Aces and Eights, because the biggest frauds are Hernandez and Chavo.

But since it is open fight night, the uncrowned champions, they call out…Hector Guerrero and Willie Urbina.

-Austin Aries is out to ruin Jeff’s celebration. Aries mocks Jeff’s ugly belt, and says that the difference between then is only 3 seconds. Aries says he is still the best and has been the most dominant man in the company since he arrived. He went through everyone to get to the top, and Jeff knocked him off of the top of the heap. But at Turning Point, the title will officially be his again. Jeff says they need to do this the right way at the PPV, and pulls out a ladder.

-Storm meets with Hogan backstage. They discuss their conversation from last week, and Storm said he took his time, and he wants his chance. Hogan says he may have an idea for him.
-Bobby Roode makes his way out to the ring. Roode says he is back for open fight night, but he is here only to state a fact. He is getting screwed once again. Last week, Hogan had to choose a contender for the title, but he wasn’t one of them. Since Aries isn’t champ anymore, he feels he should have been the guy to challenge for he title. But Hogan knew Roode would have won the title.
AJ Styles makes his way to the ring now. AJ asks if Roode will sit here and cry about not getting a shot. AJ says he should be the champion. AJ says Roode held the title longer than anyone in TNA history, so stop complaining about it. AJ says he had to deal with issues that weren’t even about him. Pictures and video of him getting into an elevator with someone of the opposite sex, which seems to be the new fad if your name is AJ. AJ is calling Roode out, right here and now. Roode says he is not here to fight, so the answer is no.
Roode then attacks AJ from behind, but AJ fights back and AJ sends him to the floor. Hogan’s music hits and he is out with James Storm. Hogan says that he hears them and what they are saying. He says that they may deserve a title shot, but he will leave it in their hands. At Turning Point, AJ vs. Roode vs. Storm. The man that takes the pin will NOT get a chance at a title shot until BFG 2013! The winner gets a title shot.
-Joey Ryan and Matt Morgan walk.
-Joey Ryan and Matt Morgan make their way to the ring. Morgan says for years TNA has disrespected and ignored his super human talents. So instead of waiting for his chance, he stole the ball and he started to show up whenever he wanted. Just to get attention. But that wasn’t good enough, he couldn’t get Hogan’s attention. Well if Hogan made history with the robe his is now wearing, that is nothing compared to what he will do with it. He will go through the roster one by one, and do so until he owns the world title. Ryan now says he usually avoids VDs, but tonight, he calls out RVD. He will prove that the X-Division title can be X…rated.
RVD in control early, Ryan sends him to the apron, but RVD back in with a kick and then slams Ryan to the corner. Kicks follow, and Ryan is down. Back to the corner, shoulder blocks and another kick to Ryan. Rolling thunder connects, and RVD heads up top. Morgan pulls Ryan out of the way, RVD crashes to the mat and Ryan gets a fucked up side roll for the pin.

-Devon comes out alone…
The bell rings and Ray charges, and Devon bails to the floor. Devon laughs and Ray then chases. Ray grabs a table, and slides it into the ring and sets it up. He calls Devon on to come in the ring, and Devon slowly enters the ring, but gets chased off again. Devon calls in the troops, and many members of Aces and Eights are out.
OFFICIAL RESULT: No Contest @ 2:00
-Ray holds them off with the chain, and here comes Angle, AJ, Storm Chavo and others. We have the big brawl in the ring, and bodies fly to the floor, leaving Devon and Ray along.
