Winner of 3 points by disqualification: Jeff Hardy
Joseph Park loses 10 points
- The Gut Check decision is next.
- JB introduces the Gut Check judges. Ryan Howe is introduced and JB asks if we saw his best last week. He says it was. Al Snow tells him 'no.' JB gives Howe a chance to cut a promo as the crowd boos. Danny Davis says his mind was made up but the people changed it. He says they were booing him but he hung in there and he says, 'yes.' Bruce Prichard tells him, 'no' and Howe looks like he might cry.
- Bully leads the troops out to "watch nobody win." DOC stops him to 'campaign for Governor' as Mr. Anderson puts it, for the VP position. Bully interrupts them and gets them back in order.
- Aces & 8's makes their way out through the crowd. Bully stares at a little boy who puts his hand out. Bully then fakes the kid out as he puts his hand out then pulls it back. Chris Sabin makes his entrance followed by Manic and Austin Aries. Aces & 8's watch from the crowd.
X Division Championship: Austin Aries (c) vs. Chris Sabin vs. Manic
Sabin and Manic go at it with Aries hung up in the corner. Sabin gets 2 on Manic. Manic rolls up Sabin but Aries comes in to break the count. Sabin and Manic fly around the ring and Manic does the Spider Man in the ropes. Sabin and Aries mix it up with Manic on the floor. Aries hits a dropkick for 2 on Sabin. Aries comes off the top with a chop on the ramp. Sabin drops Aries face first, on the ramp. Aces & 8's approach the ring and DOC powerslams Manic on the floor. MEM comes down as Aces & 8's surround the ring as we go to break.
Manic is carried away by paramedics as we return. Aries drops Sabin's neck onto the apron. Aries 3 desperately quick near falls. More near falls by Aries as Sting gets on the apron. Aries spits in his hand and slaps Sabin. Sabin slaps him back and goes off on him. Sabin hits an Enzuigiri and a dropkick for a 2. They trade reversals. Aries takes advantage and works the injured knee of Sabin. Aries hits the Brain Buster but Sabin still kicks out. The crowd chants that this is awesome. More back and forth. Aries misses with the 450 in the corner. More exciting near falls as Aces & 8's loon on from afar. The Main Event Mafia are still keeping them at bay from ringside.
Aries goes for a superplex but Sabin reverses into a crazy slam from the top rope for the win.
