Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…

-Opening video package.

-We are LIVE in Orlando!

-James Storm makes his way out to eh ring to kick off the show, even though he isn’t scheduled for action tonight. Storm mentions that he isn’t supposed to be here tonight, but that doesn’t stop him from having some fun. Last week there were issues with Aces and Eights, and he said he would watch Hardy’s back and he did. But then he saw Bobby Roode giving them the thumbs up, so he is here tonight to ruin Bobby Roode’s celebration party before he gets a chance. He calls out Roode.

Kaz makes his way out to the ring and tells Storm to shut up. He quotes Willie Nelson, and mocks Storm for being a cowboy, and says like AJ, Storm is the biggest man baby in the company. For 10 years, we have heard him bitch and moan and complain. And hell, he’s a drunk. He knew the crowd would like that. Yay alcoholism. He calls Storm a goat roper and says he is always sin business that he has nothing to do with. Kaz tells him to get on his horse and ride off and kill the Toby Keith act. Storm says the promo was crap and adds that he likes to drink moonshine, and praises the beer drinkers in the crowd. Storm challenges Kaz to take Roode’s ass whoopin, unless he has to ask his boyfriend first. Kaz says he is not here to engage in fisticuffs, and there is no ref to sanction the match. Storm says he doesn’t need a ref to whoop an ass and hits the floor. We get a ref out here, and we have a match.

The world title means everything to him, and when he lost it, he promised to win it back, no matter the circumstances.

RATING: **½ {Another solid, but unspectacular match. I liked that they didn’t do any turns this early, because they need to try and make us care about Wes Briscoe especially before the rumored turn. Hectic, but fun finish; although Aces and 8s continuing to lose does them no favors.}

-Borash in the back with AJ Styles. AJ says it has been a rough year, and everyone knows that. He has had doubters, but he has been here for 10years, and the haters can hate. When the pressure is on, he does his best work. Daniels is right, the victors write the history, and they will write that he once again defeated Daniels.

OFFICIAL RESULT: Daniels @ 22:30 via pin
RATING: ***¾ {This was a really good match, but the crowd did it no favors, which is a shame and the story of the night. In front of a different crowd, one that was into the show, it would have been looked at as better. They just didn’t bite on near falls and such like they could have, which is a shame. The result was the right call for the angle, and adds to AJ’s shitty 2012, and allows Daniels to brag on about beating AJ with his own move.}

RATING: ***½ {Another match that was hurt by the crowd. They set the match with the attack on Impact, and played off of that well here with Roode beating down Hardy the majority of the time. But when it was time for Hardy to make the big comeback, the crowd had not fire, only popping for a few small things, and Hardy nearly killing himself on the barricade. I liked the idea, and I liked the work, but the crowd again didn’t respond, which again, is a shame.}

Aces and 8s stand tall to close out the PPV…

-End scene….
