Christian Cage wins NWA World Title



There are several news items to report following Sunday's "Against All Odds" Pay-Per-View event! Remember, replays of the broadcast are still available all week long on InDemand, DirecTV and Dish Network!


It was the crowning achievement of "Captain Charisma" Christian Cage's career on Sunday night at "Against All Odds", as the star defeated Jeff Jarrett to become the NEW NWA World Heavyweight Champion! The bout saw the TNA debut of special referee Earl Hebner, who called it right down the middle as Cage ended the match after hitting the "Unprettier" on Jarrett. Following the match, fans hit the ring in celebration and lifted Cage over their heads in victory. Without a doubt, the world will hear from the new titleholder Christian Cage on Saturday's "iMPACT!" on SpikeTV!

SAMOA JOE RETAINS IN THREE-WAY REMATCH It was perhaps the most anticipated rematch in TNA Wrestling history, as Samoa Joe retained the X Championship on Sunday night against the threat of "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles and "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels. Rather than team up against "The Samoan Submission Machine", Styles and Daniels chose to make it every man for himself, which may have cost them both the gold in the end. After a Muscle Buster, Joe beat AJ for the win. Daniels was seen after the bout saying "It's not over?it's far from over!"


ERIC YOUNG: "Sting'S NOT GONE!" Is Team Canada's Eric Young paranoid, delusional ? or does he have good reason to believe the man known as Sting isn't gone from TNA? According to Young, he's not convinced the star is retired ? a claim that is earning him the anger of Scott D'Amore and Jeff Jarrett. Later that night, Young and "The Canadian Enforcer" Bobby Roode were beaten by Team 3D in a match fans voted for online.

JARRETT'S ARMY HAS DIRT ON JACKIE? Last week, Scott D'Amore and Jeff Jarrett sent Alex Shelley on a mission with his camera ? telling the X star to get some dirt on Jackie. Shelley returned with the goods on Saturday's "iMPACT!", apparently getting footage of Jackie in a compromising position. D'Amore showed off the tape at "Against All Odds", asking Gail Kim for a public apology and telling Jackie ? "Let's see how you like it when the tables are turned on you!" D'Amore has promised to further reveal the contents of the tape on Saturday's "iMPACT!" on SpikeTV!

AMW RETAIN TAG TEAM GOLD FOLLOWING SABIN ANKLE INJURY Also at "Against All Odds", NWA World Tag Team Champions America's Most Wanted successfully retained the gold against the team of Chris Sabin and Sonjay Dutt. AMW capitalized on Sabin's recent ankle injury, attacking it throughout the bout. In the end, AMW were able to damage Sabin's ankle to the point where he was unable to come to the aid of Dutt, who fell to the Death Sentence.


ABYSS TAKES THE PLUNGE AFTER A GORE! It was all-out annihilation between "The War Machine" Rhino and "The Monster" Abyss at "Against All Odds", as the two juggernauts went all over the TNA arena in their "Falls Count Anywhere" brawl. With tables, chairs, blood and a staple gun coming into play, the end saw Rhino hitting the Gore on Abyss from the arena stands, sending "The Monster" crashing down 15 feet below through four wooden tables. After the horrendous landing, Rhino covered Abyss for the win.

"MACHETE" MAKES DEBUT AS NEW MEMBER OF LAX Konnan called in a new foot solider in his war against The James Gang at "Against All Odds", debuting "Machete" as the newest member of The Latin American Exchange. However, the duo of Homicide and Machete were unable to take down BG and Kip, leading to a James Gang victory. The LAX attacked after the match, which brought out "Bullet" Bob Armstrong, who has a score to settle with Konnan. While "Bullet Bob" was ready for a fight, Konnan backed down and left the ring!
