TNA Lockdown Opener:
We get a video package hyping the fact that every match tonight will be taking place inside of a steel cage. We also get a look at a couple of the big feuds heading into tonight.
No pyro, but Mike Tenay welcomes us to the PPV and immediately begins hyping the World title match, Jarrett/Angle, and The Lethal Lockdown match. With a stacked schedule for the night, Chris Sabin's music hits, and we begin the Xscape match.
X Division Xscape Match
- Amazing Red vs. Brian Kendrick vs. Chris Sabin vs. Jay Lethal vs. Jeremy Buck vs. Max Buck vs. Robbie E vs. Suicide
The door closes and things go easily into Robbie E. and Suicide. Suicide beats on Robbie in the corner and everone else is out on the apron. Suicide hits a dropkick that sends Robbie into the corner, then catches Max Buck when he tries to interfere. Buck tags himself in and takes Suicide out with a back elbow along with Robbie E. Buck hits a dropkick and Jeremy tags himself in, but Max tags out to Lethal.
Lethal falls to a hurricarana from Buck, but Lethal hits a tilt a whirl back breaker and the Lethal combination and Max and Suicide both tag in. Suicide takes Buck out with an elbow across the chest and takes him to the corner where Robbie tags in. Robbie takes out Suicide with sole food and pins Suicide for the three count.
Suicide has been eliminated.
Lethal is in, and so is Sabin, and they pepper Robbie with right hands before slamming him head first into the cage. Sabin tries to catch Lethal with a roll up but Lethal kicks out, and after a flurry Lethal puts Sabin down with a single leg drop kick. Red tags in and flies off the top rope with a missile dropkick to Sabin. He stands up and is chopped by Lethal, but when Lethal goes for a handspring, Red catches Lethal with a kick to the face. Red hits the Code Red and pins Lethal for three.
Jay Lethal is eliminated.
Sabin comes in but Red catches him in the corner with a dropkick to the back of the head. Sabin tosses Red up but he lands on the top rope and steadies himself. Red leaps off and Sabin puts him down with a suplex variation and a giant lariat to put Red down for three.
Amazing Red is eliminated.
Max Buck is in and he takes it to Sabin for a bit before Sabin hangs him up in a tree of woe and hits him with a hang time drop kick. Sabin goes for the pin but Buck kicks out. Max is able to hit an awesome stunner from the top rope and he pins Sabin for three.
Chris Sabin is eliminated.
Kendrick jumps in and tries to score a quick roll up but Max kicks out and Robbie tags in, taking Kendrick out. Kendrick comes right back with a dropkick and splashes Robbie into the cage wall. Max goes for a moonsault but Kendrick gets his knees up. Jeremy and Max finally square off and Jeremy is taking it to Max. Max tries to escape the cage but he's cut off by Jeremy who pounds on his head and takes him from side to side in the cage slamming his head into the walls before hitting a big spinning kick to the head.
Jeremy mounts Max and hits him with punches, but when he goes back to his brother, he ends up in a small package and he's out.
