TNA Impact Results: AJ Styles Vs. James Storm, Aces & 8's Stay Strong, More
We get some boring chants as the action is considerably slower. More shots from the yellow-tinted X-Cam. I hear some Fandango humming. Ion and Williams trade shots in the center of the ring as King slowly pulls himself in the ring. Williams goes though the ropes and takes out King. Back in the ring, Williams hits Ion with a German Suplex and a hurricanrana over the top to King on the floor. Ion hits a spike DDT to Williams in the ring for 2. This is a slow X Division match.
