Winner: Bobby Roode
After the match, Ray hits a Side Slam on the championship belt to Storm. Sting comes out but the damage has already been done. James Storm still has to face Bully Ray tonight. We go to commercial.
Tara comes out for her match against Gail Kim, and we replay the Knockout's Triple Threat match last week, which she won. Gail Kim is out next, with Madison Rayne closely behind her. I don't understand why we have a non-title match now when they fight for the championship in 10 days.
Tara vs Gail Kim (with Madison Rayne)
They lock up and Tara slams Kim down, but Kim quickly pushes her into the corner, only to be caught with a couple of Arm Drags, and then a Scoop Slam. Tara takes off her t-shirt, then hits a Standing Moonsault. Rayne distracts Tara long enough for Kim to take control and use the ropes to choke Tara. Kim goes for a Sunset Flip, but Tara blocks it. Kim stays in control, with a knee to the back for a two count. Kim now locks on a Leg Lock, focusing on the knee. Tara fights out, but gets caught with a Clothesline from Kim. Gail taunts to the crowd for just a bit, then slaps Tara. Tara tries fighting back, but gets caught with a swift kick to the gut. Gail locks on a Dragon Sleeper, but Tara quickly turns it around into an ugly roll up for a two count. Gail then hits a Straight Jacket Slam before going up top. Gail misses a Missile Dropkick, and both women are down. Tara takes control with strikes, then hits a Snap Suplex. Tara is able to hit a Back Body Drop on Gail,then catches Gail running with a Powerslam. Madison gets on the apron, and Tara hits her. Madison then tries to hit Tara in the ring, but Tara mvoes and Madison hits Gail by mistake. Tara sends her out of the ring and hits the Widow's Peak on Gail for the win.
After the match, Madison looks almost scared after she cost Gail the match. We replay the finish as Tara leaves, and Madison helps Gail out of the ring.
We see Garrett Bischoff backstage, and the announcers say we are moments away from finding out who his trainer is.
We come back and Garrett Bischoff's music plays, and he comes out to tell the world who his trainer is. You know brother, something tells me that I already know. Surprise me TNA. Garrett says first of all, he would like to thank the fans for supporting him. Without any further ado, the man that has been training him is..., but his father, Eric Bischoff's music interrupts, and Eric and Gunner both come out. Eric says we've got spies with eyes in the back of their heads, and that his trainer is not here. He tells him to give this up before he gets hurt, but he's interrupted by Hulk Hogan's music, and the Hulkster gets a massive pop from this UK crowd. He really soaks up this reaction as he gets into the ring. As soon as he gets into the ring, he starts hammering on Gunner. Garrett and Hogan take turn with some shots on Gunner. Hulk hits a very slow wide up punch on him to take him out of the ring. Hogan then turns his attention on Eric. Eric screams that he's Garrett's father, but Gunner pulls him out before Hulk could get him. It takes some cat-like reflexes to be faster than Hogan folks. Hogan and Garrett shake hands and celebrate in the middle of the ring. Hulk even rips his shirt for the crowd, revealing his utterly grotesque body. Mike Tenay says we'll hear from both Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan after this commercial.
