Winner: Austin Aries
Don't expect to see much of Haskins after his own hometown crowd got behind the heel, plus the botched Shooting Star Press didn't help either. We replay some of the highlights, and Haskins is still down in the middle of the ring. Still to come, Tara faces Gail Kim, but up next, former partners collide as James Storm takes on Bobby Roode. We go to break.
We come back with a video package of Brooke Tessmacher in a bikini telling fans to vote for her in her Hooter's contest thingy.
James Storm's music hits and he's out for his first of two matches tonight. His opponent, TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Roode is out next.
James Storm vs Bobby Roode
They locks up violently, and Roode takes control, but Storm switches it up, more chain wrestling, and Roode takes him down with a Shoulder Block, only to be caught with a Hip Toss, followed by a Scoop Slam, a Knee Drop and a Leg Drop, which gets a two count. Storm goes for the Last Call as Roode comes out of the corner, and Roode rolls out of the ring to dodge it. We go to commercial as Roode starts to get back in the ring.
We come back with Storm working over Roode in the corner with some Chops. Storm with a knee to the face, but he gets caught with a knee to the gut from Roode. Roode hits some Shoulder Thrusts in the corner, then some chops of his own. Roode hits a Front Suplex for a two count, then rakes the back of Storm. Roode tants to the crowd, and it costs him as Storm starts to fight back with some right hands, but he's caught with a Fireman's Carry Flapjack for a two count. Roode stomps the midsection of Storm, which he has been working on all match. Storm fights to his feet, but gets hit with an elbow. Storm hits an elbow of his own, and then rolls up Roode for a two count. They trade "boo" "yay" punches with each other, and Roode perches himself on the top turnbuckle, but gets caught with an uppercut. Storm goes up top and hits a Super Hurricanrana from the top rope. We get a replay of that one. Storm hits a couple of Clotheslines, then a Forearm, but Roode dodges a Scoopslam, only to be caught with a Backstabber. Storm goes up top with Roode flat on his back, and hits a Diving Elbow Drop for a two count.
Roode gets up to his feet, but Storm goes for a Russian Leg Sweep, Roode, however, is able to twist out of it and lock on a Crossface in the middle of the ring. Storm is able to roll over and get to the ropes to break up the hold. Roode continues working over the midsection. He goes for a Fisherman Buster, but Storm reverses and signals for the Eye of the Storm. After a few spins, Roode fights out and hits the Fisherman Buster with a beautiful bridge that barely doesn't get the two count. Roode pushes referee Brian Hebner, but Hebner pushes back. Roode rolls out of the ring takes his belt into the ring. He pushes Hebner to the side and goes to hit Storm, but Storm hits a Codebreaker. Storm signals for the Last Call, but Bully Ray comes out of nowhere and distracts him just long enough for Roode to hit a Spear, which Storm sold like a boss for the win.
