Winner: Double Count-Out.
Both Angle and Joe get huge receptions and the crowd reminded before the match that these two have had a heated sequence of matches in the past, crowd lifts in excitement. They lock up and the crowd are split 50/50 with no clear attachment to one wrestler. Angle looked as though he was wrestling hurt, more so than usual, with a taped hamstring and a winces of pain in his face with every german suplex delivered to Joe. Angle applies the Ankle Lock to Joe and attempts the Angle Slam twice whilst Joe almost manages to lock in the Coquina Clutch to Angle. The match was building very nicely with near falls and stiff moves from both parties, as expected. The match ends in a no-contest with Wes Briscoe and Garett Bischoff entering the ring from the same corner the Ace's and 8's are known for in the iMPACT ZONE, security attempts to stop them. Angle and Joe push them aside quickly.
Match up made for Lockdown: Kurt Angle vs. Wes Briscoe.
Winner: No Contest.
Gail Kim, Tara and Jess vs. The Blossom Twins (Hannah and Holly) and Marty Scurll
Jesse and Scrull start things off with Marty starting a crowd clap. The match takes shape when one of the Blossom Twins is cornered for the majority of the match by Tara and Gail Kim, good 'tag-team tactics' that tend to set the two teams apart. Gail Kim attempts the 'Eat Defeat' finish to no avail whilst Tara misses a standing moonsault to allow a, one of the Blossom Twins (hard to tell), to tag the other and the match breaks down from here. Marty Scurll attempts a suicide dive to the outside of the ring to Jesse who seemed to be out of position and Marty takes a nasty bump to the concrete, referees and trainers run to ringside, as well as Bruce Pritchard - he walks off with a bit of glazed over face after the match. Tara picks up the victory with a moonsault from the top.
Winners: Gail Kim, Tara and Jesse
After the above match Gail Kim gets on the mic and demands a match with Tara for the knockouts title. Brooke Hogan comes out and gives her the match but with added stipulation that Brooke Tessmacher and Velvet Sky would be added to the match on the following weeks show.
James Storm vs. Rob Van Dam
Very solid match which utilises almost every signature move in both performers arsenal. RVD plays up to the crowd a few times before attempting moves like the rolling thunder and the monkey flip in the corner. The only move not attempted by RVD is the frog splash but instead, late in the match, RVD attempts the Van Terminator coast-to-coast that Storm moves out the way of. Storm heats up the crowd for a Last Call Superkick that he hits for the win.
Winner: James Storm
- Hulk Hogan hits the ring for the second time in the show and begins to announce the number one contender for the TNA World Championship Match against Jeff Hardy at Lockdown. All members of Ace's and 8's surround the ring and retreat as soon as Bully Ray and Sting hit the ring (with three baseball bats). When back in the crowd Ken Anderson was the only one trying to mess with crowd, taking interest in anyone trying to give him some heat, which was a clever move since it worked for him.
