Buck Gunderson & Mr. Marvelous vs. Nate Buck & Jake Lander: Lander and Gunderson begin. They lock up and Gunderson overpowers Lander, but Lander trips him up and follow with a dropkick. Marvelous in and cuts off Lander. He misses a charge, Lander follows with kicks, but Marvelous dumps him to the floor. Marvelous grounds the action, isolating Lander. Marvelous then follows with uppercuts, and Gunderson tags in. He follows with head butts and covers for 2. Marvelous tags back in and double teams follow for 2. Lander battles back and tags in Buck. He runs wild and hits the spinebuster for 2. He follows with strikes, and the clothesline gets 2. Buck follows with a full nelson bomb and Lander hits the Phoenix splash for the win. Jake Lander & Nate Buck defeated Buck Gunderson & Mr. Marvelous @ 5:00 via pin [**] This was ok at best, but the crowd didn’t care at all.

We go around the ring with Ace Austin. Austin won’t reveal the secrets to his magic, and Josh mock him for losing to TJP twice. Austin talks about using his magic to be different, and sees himself as a showman. He has great body control thanks to parkour. He’s been around and likes to frequently relocate. He laminates his cards for tricks, so that it won’t fall apart. Austin tells Josh not to steal his shit, and the multi-man match at Rebellion is his favorite Impact match so far.

Ladder Match (For A Shot At The TNA X-Division Title): Kazarian vs. Daniels vs. Amazing Red vs. Brian Kendrick: The bell sounds and Kendrick is tossed and Red and Kaz work over Daniels. Red and Kendrick to the floor, and then Kaz and Daniels go to the floor. Red takes the time to alert air traffic control with a cool spinning plancha. Kendrick brings in the ladder already and he and Kaz brawl. To the floor they go as Red and Daniels now look to climb. Red slides under the ladder and then dropkicks it into Daniels’ face. Kendrick tosses him to the floor, climbs, but red back in and pulls him off. Kendrick slams him to the corner, kicks him in the face and then Kaz misses Kendrick and lands on the ladder. Ouch. Kendrick and Daniels brawl, STO by Daniels. He grabs the ladder, and it is time for the TERRY FUNK NECK TIE~! Red then gets a drop toehold and Daniels eats ladder. Red and Kendrick alone in the ring now, Red tossed to the floor and now Kendrick attacks Kaz. He grabs the ladder, puts it between the ring and barrier to make a nice landing pad and then battles with Kaz. Kaz then gut busters Kendrick onto the ladder. Kaz is now laid on the ladder and Daniels gets the split legged moonsault. Daniels stands on the ladder to celebrate and Red gets a RANA and sends Daniels to the floor! Kaz and Red battle in the ring, up top of the ladder they go and Kendrick shoves the ladder and Kaz crotches himself as Red lands gut first on the ropes. Daniels slams Kaz into the ladder, and then as Daniels misses the ladder shot, Kaz gets a slingshot leg drop onto Daniels, who was on the ladder. Daniels lays on the ladder in the corner, Kendrick back in and kicks Kaz. He has another ladder, and Kaz smashes the ladder into Kendrick. Red kicks the ladder into Kaz, Daniels decapitates Red with a clothesline and props a ladder in the corner. Slams Rd onto it, and then rights to Kaz. Tries a suplex, and Kendrick nails them with another ladder. Sets it up, climbs, Kaz cuts him off and then Daniels backdrops Kaz onto the ladder in the corner. Enziguri by Kendrick to Daniels. As Kendrick goes to climb, he gets tossed off into another ladder. Kaz then POWERBOMBS Daniels onto the ladder in the corner! Kaz climbs, as does Kendrick. They trade rights, and then pull each other off. Red back in, dropkick to Kendrick in the corner, and then charges, but gets tossed to the floor.

Right by Red to Daniels, gets another ladder and sets it up with the other one. Daniels and Red climb, URANAGE OFF OF THE LADDER BY DANIELS! Daniels traps Red in the ladder, Kaz springboards onto the ladder, knocks of Kendrick, Daniels up and Kaz dumps him off as he was hung up on the ladder.

Prince works over Mambo, but Mambo cuts him off and hits a springboard arm drag. Prince follows with a RANA, but Wentz is in and follows with knees and kicks, The springboard high cross follows and Petey is in and Wentz follows with strikes.
