  • Young calls out MVP and has a request.
  • After the commercial break, we’re back as Young waits in the ring. He is the #1 contender and has a request for MVP. MVP comes to the stage and says Young has his attention. Young says he hears the fans, and says MVP has done a great job and thanks him. He is not a doctor, and his right arm is messed up, but tonight is live and anything can happen. He just won a shot at the world title at the PPV. But Young says that he is feeling crazy tonight, and MVP asks how crazy. Young says he won once, and everything is going his way and he has waited 10-long years for this. He wants his title shot tonight. Magnus laughs this off on commentary, and MVP asks if he is serious about this. MVP says he respects the fighting spirit. MVP says he doesn’t pay Magnus to be a commentary, and says to head to his locker room and suit up, because he will face Young for the title tonight. Magnus says this is fine, because this is Magnus rules and they always win out. MVP then says that tonight, here are no Magnus riles. If Magnus gets counted out or DQ’d he loses the title tonight. And as for Abyss, Abyss is banned from ringside. MVP then says if ANYONE ELSE gets involved, they will be fired on the spot. Magnus is NOT pleased about this turn of events. Magnus says MVP cannot do this, MVP begs to differ.
  • Spud throws a surprise party for Dixie’s return. She’s not all that impressed by this, and Spud is broken hearted that she never answered his texts. Dixie says Spud was ready to turn on her, and Dixie leaves him alone at his little party. Willow then appears and attacks Spud.

  • : Angelina Love @ 5:00 via pin

  • Dixie Carter meets with MVP. She says this is her building, and is upset with how MVP is doing business. Carter says that this whole thing he is doing is a joke, and is a violation of his power. She says he doesn’t deserve to be here and didn’t earn it. Carter is here to take care of business. She asks him to come to the front row as she deals with her business. That way he will know how it feels when she does it to him, because he’s next.

  • The Wolves meet with MVP, and then they see Jessie and Ion are there. Robbie E’s flight was accidentally canceled, so there is no title match this week. MVP asks why Jessie has both titles with him, and then says he is sick of them taking advantage of his kindness. MVP then says Robbie has until bell time to arrive, because there will be a title match tonight. If he doesn’t make it, Ion will replace him and they will still defend the titles.
  • Magnus says that Young made a huge mistake wanting his title shot tonight. He may have won the gauntlet, but tonight, he has no chance.


    Dixie Carter makes her way to the ring, and says she has unfinished business with Bully Ray. Bully makes his way out to the ring. The crowd chants for him to put her through a table. Carter says she doesn’t care what they are cheering, and they chant, “we don’t like you” at the urging of Bully. Bully says that he gives her credit, because she is here face to face. The last time she wanted to meet she didn’t show. Carter says Bully is really dumb for a smart New Yorker, because he got played when Roode was there to attack him at her office. And then last week Roode put Bully through three tables. Bully says she is right, and he can appreciate being suckered in to something, but he has bad news. They didn’t get the job done and he is still standing here. Carter wants to know why Bully double-crossed her at Lockdown. Bully says she may be the most selfish women he ever met, because this is not nor has it ever been her company, it is the fans’ company. This company is for every TNA fan around the world. This company is for every wrestler that breaks their back in this ring. Carter cuts him off and asks if he is the spokesperson for everyone. Bully says whether they love or hate him, same for the wrestlers, they respect him. Carter says she saved the company and they respect her as well. She paid him well to do a job, but he didn’t do it so she wants it back. Bully says it was a LOT of money, he bought a car and spent most at Rick’s Cabaret in New York. Carter slaps the mic from his hands and asks if he knows who she is. She is Dixie Carter from Dallas, Texas, is still president of TNA and controls all of the checks and is the boss. She then slaps Bully. Oh shit. Bully starts to back her into a corner, but Bobby Roode hits the ring and attacks Bully. Carter tells Roode to get a table, and he does. Roode sets up the table, Bully fights back but Roode is able to escape. But Carter is still in the ring. The crowd chants for him to put her through a table and… we go to a break.

  • Magnus meets with Dixie tonight, and is insulted that she did not come and see him. She says she is here for business, which has nothing to do with him. She is going to drink wine, get on her plane, have some more wine, and go home to shower and go to bed. Magnus is unimpressed, and Carter then says she brought him to the dance, but now he acts as if he doesn’t need her. She says he has it all under control, on his own, so she is out of here.

    Tag Team Title Match: The Bro-Mans © (Jessie and Robbie DJ Zema Ion) vs. The Wolves (Richards and Edwards)

    Robbie did not make the bell, so it is Jessie and Ion. Edwards and Jessie to begin. Off the ropes, blind tag and Richards in and they work double teams on the champions and then Richards lays in the kicks on Jessie. Ion stuns Richards off the ropes and a dropkick by Jessie connects. Edwards in to save Richards, and then send the champions to the floor. Stereo dives by the Wolves connect. Edwards tosses Ion back in, he and Richards deliver chops and kicks to Ion.

    OFFICIAL RESULT: The Wolves @ 3:00 via

  • Christy Hemme wants to talk with Samuel Shaw tonight, about, commitment…

  • Hemme is in the ring, and calls out Samuel Shaw so that they can discuss commitment. Hemme says that Shaw is misunderstood, and that she had had a change of heart. Shaw is glad she feels this way, and Hemme asks if he trusts her and if he would do what she asks or go anywhere she asked him to go. She then bites his glove and pulls it off with her mouth. She tells him to close his eyes, and feel her. She says to keep them closed, and we see a Psychiatric services van pull up backstage. Mr. Anderson appears in the van as Hemme says Samuel will be going exactly where he belongs. She keeps asking if he is excited and says a good man has to be patient. Hemme says to turn around and to keep his eyes closed. She says to pen them, Anderson is there and a mic check for Shaw. Anderson “shhhhhhhhhhh’s” Shaw, and then says that the commitment Hemme was discussing was Shaw’s commitment, to the funny farm. Anderson says that Shaw will go where he belongs, and tells the fans to say bye bye to Shaw. Anderson makes Shaw wave and tosses him over the top and to the floor. They sing, “hey hey goodbye” as Anderson kicks his ass to the back. Anderson tries to get him into the van, but he escapes and runs away.
