Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com Live Impact Viewing Party. We will be providing live ongoing coverage of tonight's show, while you all can chime in with your thoughts throughout the show.
Brooke Adams vs. Awesome Kong
Kong dominates Brooke to start with. She's throw her around the ring like a rag doll. She's targeting Brooke's broken hand. The fans are trying to get behind Brooke. Brooke gives her the finger with her injured hand. OK, that is very cool. Brooke powers out and makes a bit of a comeback and goes for her finisher, but Kong counters it into a back suplex. She hits the Impact Buster and that is that. This was a decent women's match but will probably get ignored.
Winner: Awesome Kong
Matt Hardy interview. He vows to go on in the title hunt. He wants to face Ethan Carter for the WHC belt again. Carter thinks Matt is just a facade. He says the only thing worse than seeing Matt's stupid face is hearing his stupid voice. Ethan points out he is undefeated. He claims he will set fire to this tournament. No one has submitted him. Hardy gets up and leaves. Carter came off very well here.
Eric Young interview hyping up the main event. Eric vows to hurt James Storm if he dares to enter the ring.
Tigre Uno vs. Manik
Tigre won with the corkscrew moonsault to gain three points in the X division group. The X division is now all tied in the world title series contest. Fun high-flying match.
Winner: Tigre Uno

Eric Young/James Storm hype video.
Eric Young vs. James Storm
Young goes after Storm before the bell rings. The crowd are very much behind Storm and it appears he is the babyface here. He's hammering Storm with punches and kicks in the corner of the ring. Commercial. We come back and the two guys are brawling at ringside. Young slams Storm's head into the ring steps. Eric with a double axe. Back in the ring and Eric goes for the cover. Storm ducks out and they're brawling at ringside again. Atomic drop by James Storm onto Young. Swinging neckbreaker. Eye of the Storm! But he only gets a two. Earl catches Eric cheating with his feet on the ropes. Storm ties for the superkick, Eric shoves Earl in front of him to defend himself. Earl is distracted and Young hits a low blow followed by the piledriver for the win. Young is into the final 16. Roode is eliminated for good.
Winner: Eric Young
