TNA IMPACT! Results (4/5) - New Knockouts Champion!
By Ryan Clark | April 05, 2010 |
German Suplex by Kurt Angle. Angle tries to pick the ladder up but he sees Anderson stirring. He turns his attention to Anderson and puts Anderson on the ladder. He pounds him the face to make sure he's out and Kurt climbs the turnbuckle. Moonsault from Kurt Angle. After looking like death after that bump to the outside, you have to admire him for doing that.
Angle sends Anderson into the corner pole shoulder first. He picks the ladder up and sets it up in the middle of the ring. Angle climbs as the camera notices Anderson with the Warrior Medal. Anderson stops Kurt from climbing and begins choking him with the Warrior Medal. Angle tries to climb through the choking and gets his fingertips on the key. He tries to pull it down by passes out from the medal. Anderson completes the climb and takes down the key for the win.
WINNER: Mr. Anderson
Solid performance from both men, especially Kurt Angle. I still don't quite understand the major advantage over having the key but it made a solid match so who cares.
