- We go to crowd shots from London, England.
- Hulk Hogan makes his way to the ring.
Wembley Arena looks packed and Hogan pauses for cheers. Hogan puts the fans over and we get a 'TNA' chant. Hogan continues milking the reaction, comparing it to Andre and whatnot. He says he has found 8 guys who will face-off in 4 matches to find out who he will pick to face the champ at Lockdown. We will have RVD vs. James Storm, Daniels vs. Magnus, Kurt Angle vs. Samoa, and Bobby Roode vs. Austin Aries. The fans chant for Joe. Hogan says that at the end of the night he will pick the #1 contender to face Jeff Hardy.
Hogan switches gears to Aces & 8's. He says they want a war and that he thought about it for half a second and called somebody…Sting's music hits and he comes to the ring. Sting says London fans are among the best in the world. Sting accepts Aces & 8's challenge and says he will find 3 "killers" to join him and tear Aces & 8's heads off at Lockdown. This crowd is hot tonight, folks. Hogan and Sting pose in the ring as Sting's music plays. The crowd chants, 'TNA.'
- Back from a break as Daniels is introduced with Kazarian. Magnus comes out to a great home-country reception.
Daniels vs. Magnus
The bell sounds and they circle each other as Daniels tries to calm the ruckus. They lock and trade moves as a 'Let's Go Magnus' chant breaks out. Magnus goes to work in the corner. Magnus hits a vertical suplex but Kazarian interferes from the floor and Daniels takes over. Kazarian trips Magnus from the floor and the crowd is all over him. Daniels gets 2 in the ring; Magnus moves in the corner and lands a big boot to the grill of Daniels. Magnus takes care of Kazarian the "manager" on the apron and this time the ref throws him out.
Magnus builds momentum in the ring and hits a short clothesline to take Daniels down. Magnus hits a sit-down slam and flies off the top with an elbow for the win. The crowd loves it.
Winner by pin: Magnus
- Bully Ray lies on Brooke's lap as she strokes his head. Bully is upset about recent events and Brooke doesn't know what to say. Bully cheers up and says it's Valentine's Day and he is not going to let it ruin their time together. They are going to buy Brooke those shoes she wants, eat Italian at that restaurant she likes, and then going dancing. Brooke tells Bully to wear his wedding ring. She puts it on finger and says she found it on the bathroom sink after he left this morning. (Hmmm…foreshadowing?) They kiss and embrace. We go to a break.
- We return to shots of Big Ben from London.
- Moments Ago: Magnus cuts a promo about how is only 26 years old but he has been at this profession since he was 19. He says it is his life and religion. He is going to get back at Aces & 8's for almost taking it away from him. He says he just proved to the world he has what it takes to be world champion.
- Samoa Joe is introduced by the lovely Christy Hemme. Kurt Angle walks down the ramp as they play prerecorded comments made by Angle regarding the Olympic Committee's decision to exclude wrestling from the Games. He says he will do everything he can along with TNA to make sure it doesn't happen. Taz agrees on commentary and says it is an outrage.
