TNA Victory Road: Mr. Anderson Vs. Rob Van Dam (#1 Contender's Match)
Anderson hits RVD with a couple of big forearms and a spinning neckbreaker, but he still can't keep RVD down. Anderson hits the standing Green Bay Plunge, landing on top of his own head, but he goes for the cover, only getting a two count. Anderson goes for the mic check, but RVD fights him off, and both men connect with clotheslines, both crashing down to the mat.
Both men get to their feet where they go blow for blow. Van Dam sends Anderson into the corner and buries his shoulder in Anderson's midsection over and over, but Anderson side steps a charging RVD and RVD ends up going shoulder first into the ring apron, when he gets to his feet, both men crack heads. Both men get back to their feet and RVD launches himself into Anderson with a big cross body that sends both men over the top rope to the outside. Van Dam breaks the count, and both men trade blows on the outside, fighting up to the ramp where Anderson is able to connect with the mic check.
The referee is counting, and both men are crawling back to the ring, but neither man is able to make it back into the ring before 10.
Double Count Out
