In the Arena:
Team 3D is announced and make their way out to the ring to a bit less love than I would have thought, considering how long they've been gone from TV. It seems to pick up a bit though.
Brother Ray says he has one question, and asks if the crowd are having a great time, to much applause. Ray calls out the date that he and D-Von promised to each other to become the most decorated team in tag team history, and it's only because of respectful fans like the one's in TNA, that they've worked all over the world and in almost every single major organization. Ray says there comes a time in a career when you wonder what's left to do, because they've conquered everything in tag team wrestling. Ray says as of this very moment Team 3D is officially retired.
Ray says they have on request. If they're going out, they want one more match. They want to wrestle the best tag team in the world today, and if you're the TNA World Tag Team Champs, they're the best in the world, so they're talking to the Guns. If they can beat Ray and D-Von, they can write it at the top of their resumes, but if 3D win, they retire 24 time tag team champions. Ray thanks the crowd for always screaming at the top of their lungs. The crowd yells get the tables, and D-Von says 'Testify', before 3D salute the crowd, and head to the back.

Christy Hemme is backstage with Fourtune. Flair asks if Hemme can smell it, and says there's excitement in the air. She says the heart and soul of TNA walks the ramp next, EV2 is done, and Mick Foley will have to kiss Flair's a**.

Flair rants a bit more, and everyone does their weird gang sign for a bit, before we're finally ready for the match.
EV2 make their way down to the ring all together all at once with Mick Foley in their corner. Sabu points to the top of the cage and asks the referee about something.
Flair and Fourtune are out next, Flair wearing a terrible wife beater.

Foley and Flair get right into it with Foley slamming Flair into the cage and clubbing him across the back. They're pulled apart by their respective teams.
Stevie Richards and Kaz start things out. Kaz gets the upper hand with a huge right hand and a series of forearms to Richards' face.

The members of Fourtune are just punching kicking and choking the members of EV2, and Raven is split open now as well. Rhyno makes his way in, and it's time for Lethal Lockdown to begin.
Rhino hits a big spinebuster and a huge gore to Storm, and the cage roof begins to lower. Flair and Foley finally boils over and they begin brawling on the outside, trading punches and chops. Flair blades pretty obviously, and he's bleeding too. People are grabbing weapins and hanging from the cage roof, and whacking each other with weapons, and Flair and Foley are fighting, and as always this match is a complete mess.
Raven and Morgan trade Kendo stick and trash can blows, Morgan goes to bicycle kick Richards, but he ends up kicking the cage instead.
