Matt Hardy (@MATTHARDYBRAND) December 16, 2016
Total Nonstop Deletion begins with Senor Benjamin. He reads a disclaimer to the viewers in Spanish. The subtitles appear on screen and they read "Good Evening, Tonight's Impact Broadcast contains scenes that are performed by trained and licensed professionals. Please do not attempt any of what you are about to see". An onscreen disclaimer follows this, that says that no drones were harmed during this event.
This is followed by a video. Reby Hardy is playing "Obsolete" on a piano next to The Reincarnation Lake. Broken Matt is on Scarsguard in the Lake. Brother Nero is on the grounds, preparing to carve out his symbol. Senor Benjamin is carrying explosives. Preparing the compound for battle. "King Maxel" is inside a wrestling ring indoors. He stares at the ring entrance. Which is a painting of his father's face.
We now cut to an "Action News" special report from WCAM News in Cameron, North Carolina. Tag Team Apocalypto is previewed by the news anchor. He warns residents to stay indoors during this battle. They report seismic activity at The Hardy compound. They go on the scene with reporter "Betty Sue Fuentes". She is standing in front of a live volcano. She interviews nearby witnesses. One of them happens to be "Itchweeed". He is listed as a landscaping consultant. Pulls out his weedwacker and scares off the reporter.
An aerial view of the compound is provided by Vanguard 1. Josh Mathews intros the event. He is at the "Dome of Deletion". He is doing the broadcast with Jeremy Borash. A ring is set up inside the compound. Local fans are on hand in attendance. The Broken Hardy's and Senor Benjamin head to the ring. Broken Matt addresses the crowd. He hypes Tag Team Apocalypto. Says that the 7 deities told him that if the Hardy's lose tonight. That they will be deleted and promises that it will not happen. Matt then hypes up his son Maxel's in ring debut tonight. Rockstar Spud's music hits and he interrupts Broken Matt, and heads to the ring.
Broken Matt says that Spud is a man worthy of deletion. Spud says that he will not be deleted tonight. Rockstar says that he is sick of The Hardy's, Senor Benjamin, Reby, but most of all. He is sick of Matt's "greenhorn" son Maxel. Spud says that he wants Matt's stupid kid gone. Spud gets upset because the crowd chants for Maxel. Says that Maxel is more over than he has ever been. This upsets him. Spud challenges Maxel to a match. Promises to stretch him and teach him a lesson. Wants to make him a loser just like his father. Broken Matt says that he already had an opponent scheduled for Maxel, but as promoter, He will change Maxel's opponent and sanction Spud as the replacement. Spud says that he is going to teach Maxel a lesson and beat him before promoters can push him to the moon. Matt calls on a licensed official and then introduces his son to the ring.

Sienna grabs the mic and says, that she should have specified a person, when she laid down her open challenge. The camera pans to a food truck on the outside of the Dome. Coming out of the truck is O.D.B. She heads to the ring with her trusty flask in hand.
O.D.B. vs. Sienna
ODB style match here. It starts off as a brawl. She gets the early advantage. Then hits a bronco buster on Sienna in the corner. Follows that up with what could be called a Lou Chest Press rather than a Lou Thesz press. Borash and Mathews clown around on commentary about the compound setting. Josh talks about there being no 5 star hotels nearby. Any chance, We can delete Josh Mathews tonight..... Action continues in the ring. Sienna regains the advantage on ODB, when she accidentally knocks down the referee. She delivers a kick to ODB, and then goes to get a steel chair on the outside.

By virtue of this win. Sienna is announced as the # 1 contender to Rosemary's Knockouts Championship. After the match. Sienna celebrates her victory and then leaves. A recovering ODB spots Vanguard One beside her in the ring. She lifts VG1 up and rubs her chest on him. I mean it.
Broken Matt Hardy is backstage, and The Helms dynasty has arrived. Matt assumes that Trevor Lee is in costume. Says that his costume is worse than the one he had on at Treat or Delete. Shane informs Matt that Trevor is not wearing a costume. That he always looks like that. Shane says that they are entering Tag Team Apocalypto. "Scribe" is now on the scene and takes notes for Matt. Matt tells him that tonight, someone here will enter the Lake of Reincarnation and that it will be the most appaling reincarnation ever seen.
