Winner And New TNA Knockouts #1 Contender: Gail Kim
- Sting and Angle are seated in the back as the camera peeks in their room. They talk about picking the right 5th member of MEM. Sting's phone rings and he leaves the room. Angle breathes a sigh of relief that the 5th member finally called.
Back from a break and Sting comes back in the room and says, "Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. Perfect." He hangs up the phone. He tells Angle that "he" will be here in a few minutes.
- AJ Styles is introduced first for the Gauntlet Match followed by Magnus.
Magnus and AJ lock up and go back and forth to some "boring" chants. Yes, that match will be hard to follow. The clock counts down and Kazarian is out next. OK, so this is an over-the-top-elimination match; basically a mini Royal Rumble and eventual battle royale. This is technically not a gauntlet match. Samoa Joe joins them next and starts to speed things against Kaz. Magnus takes care of AJ in the corner. AJ eliminates Kaz. Joe goes crazy with shots to AJ as we go to commercial.
Mr. Anderson came out during the break and Bobby Roode comes out as we return. The match goes to pin or submission when it gets down to the last 2. Joe clotheslines Anderson over the top and he falls out himself also. It's down to Roode and Magnus. Roode hits a spinebuster for 2 and cranks back on his head on the canvas. Magnus counters out and puts Roode in the Texas Cloverleaf. Roode reaches the ropes to break the hold. Magnus comes off the top with an elbow but Roode moves. Quick paced back and forth; Roode rolls Magnus up, Magnus rolls through with his powerful legs and pins Roode.
