Winner & STILL NWA World Heavyweight Champion: Christian Cage
After the match, Christian Cage climbs up the cage and rasies the NWA World Heavyweight Title high in the air celebrating with the fans in the Impact Zone in Orlando. Christian exits the cage as James Mitchell attends to a bloody Abyss. Cage looks to leave until he comes back down and gets back in the ring. Cage goes after James Mitchell when Abyss comes from behind and low blows him. Abyss grabs his chain, wraps it around his fist and nails Christian with a stiff right hand. Abyss taunts at Christian who is now busted open. Abyss throws Christian out of the ring. Abyss then positions the chain against the side of the cage, grabs Christian, wraps the chain around his neck and starts choking him with it. James Mitchell then hands Abyss the NWA World Title, saying this was his prize for his destruction on Christian Cage tonight. Abyss and James Mitchell leave with the NWA World Title as Christian Cage holds his neck in pain with the chain still wrapped around it.
