Bound for Glory Series: Mr. Anderson vs. RVD
Tenay says Hulk Hogan tweeted that all BFG matches will have a 15 minute time limit. They counter each other with go-behinds and cover attempts. They slap hands and Anderson punches RVD in the head. Anderson hits a suplex for 2. RVD counters another suplex and hits a drop toe-hold into a bridge submission. Anderson reaches the ropes. RVD applies an abdominal stretch and transitions into a pin for 2.
Anderson hits a reverse elbow and makes the cover but RVD grabs the ropes. RVD suplexes Anderson and cartwheels on top of him for a 2. Anderson scouts a split-legged moonsault and gets his knees up for 2. Anderson hits a neckbreaker for 2. Anderson applies a sleeper but RVD hiptosses him. RVD fights off the shoulders into a crucifix and pin.
Winner of 7 points by pin: RVD
RVD is now in 5th place with 7 points; Storm's in the lead with 36.
Austin Aries makes his way to the ring.
Aries drapes his title across the ropes in front of him and says he respects the lineage of the X-Division Championship and that's why he made the 'Option C' proposition to Hogan last week. He says his days as X-Division Champion are numbered and at Destination X there will be a tournament to crown a new one. Bobby Roode's music hits.
Roode gets in the ring and says Aries is pathetically over-confident. He says his title is the real World Championship and he single handedly made it the most important title in wrestling. He says 12 men are clawing for their shot at the title at Bound for Glory and the only reason Aries is getting a shot is because of Hogan. Roode says Aries will fail and isn't in his league. Roode tells him to get out of his ring. Aries says it's his ring and knocks Roode's mic out of his hand. Aries takes off his shirt and they face off but Roode grabs his belt and retreats.
-Claire Lynch promo from last week where she cried sans tears
Claire and Dixie give an interview backstage. Claire says she had only met Kaz & Daniels in passing.
