The final match of the 4 man, one night title tourney brings us:
Eric Young vs Bobby Roode for the TNA Heavyweight Title
Crowd is chanting Super Eric. Tenay recaps the history of Roode and EY as friends and partners in the past. They are 2-time former Tag Team Champions, but tonight it's the former memebers of Team Canada squaring off for the TNA Title.
EY gains the early control and is all smiles and playing up to the crowd big time, as we go to the final break of the night.
When we come back, Young gets thrown out of the ring and lands bad on one leg and the IT FACTOR takes control throwing the champion into the steel steps. Back in the ring, Roode takes total control with several near falls as he tries to regain the title he held longer than anyone in TNA history.
Young regains control with some high risk moves. EY hits a missile drop kick from the top rope and Roode barely escapes.
Both wrestlers hit some very good power moves and get near falls until EY nails Roode with a pile driver. Somehow Roode kicked out and nails Young with a Roode Bomb but EY kicks out.
Both wrestlers have now hit their finisher on the other but only get two counts.
A series of huge right hands traded by each man leads to EY going to the top rope and hitting the flying elbow on Roode for the pin.
