Ethan Carter III & Kurt Angle Segment:
Ethan Carter III comes storming out to the ring with Tyrus in to complain about how there’s two World Title matches tonight and he’s not in either of them. He’s doing a good, old fashioned sit-in tonight until he gets what he wants. EC3 dares anyone to try and get him out of the ring, so Kurt Angle comes out to confront EC3, and says he’s not stopping anything because the fans want to see wrestling, not some whiny bitch complaining about anything. EC3 threatens to end Angle’s career, so Angle tells him to try right now because if he tries, he promises to snap his ankle in two. EC3 glares at him before wordlessly slipping out of the ring and heading for the back of course with Tyrus in tow. Rockstar Spud passes him on the way to the ring.
First Match: TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match
Kurt Angle (c) vs. Rockstar Spud
Angle quickly takes Spud down and dominates him on the mat, but Spud gets to the ropes to force a break and then starts using his speed to catch Angle with a bunch of dropkicks and springboard moves. Angle scurries to the floor to break the momentum, and Spud tries a dive off the apron, but Angle catches him as he comes in and hits an overhead release suplex right on the floor. Angle brings Spud back in and continues dominating him, hitting a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for two count and continuing to press the advantage. Spud escapes the Angle Slam and lays Angle out with an enziguiri and then peppers him with a series of jabs and a big right hand that floors Angle.
Spud dodges a charge and sends the champion out to the floor, then dropkicks him back to the concrete when he tries climbing back inside. Spud goes back to the top and takes Angle out with a somersault dive that connects with that tender back of Angle’s neck. Angle goes back to the top, but Angle quickly runs up the corner and hits the belly to belly suplex. Spud escapes another Angle slam attempt and drops Angle to his knees with another enziguiri, then connects with a series of charging forearms. Angle catches another enziguiri attempt to the anklelock, Spud rolls out and he hits the Underdog. Spud quickly rolls Angle over and makes a cover, but Angle kicks out at two count. Spud takes too long to capitalize and Angle gets Spud back in the anklelock and grapevines the leg. Spud gives it everything he has and tries his best to fight, but eventually is forced to tap out.
