Tonight we get to see a three-way match pitting TNA Champion Rob Van Dam against arch nemisis AJ Styles and good friend Jeff Hardy.

Backstage with JB who says after what we saw last week – the dispute between tag-partners Doug Williams and Brian Kendrick its time to see them face-off.

Match 3:  Brian Kendrick vs Doug Williams

  • Winner: Brian Kendrick

  • The blueprint picks Jeremy up for a suplex and just plants him with a uranage

  • Attempted pin on RVD but AJ breaks up the pin.
  • Now AJ’s going to work on both men, hitting a Dragon Screw Legwhip on RVD and then a Stinger Splash in the corner on Hardy.
  • AJ clips RVD’s knee and then gets the figure four, but Hardy breaks it up and then goes up top, but AJ knocks him off the top to the floor.
  • RVD monkey flips AJ out of the corner

  • RVD sees the situation with Anderson on the outside and goes outafter him
  • AJ hits a somersault dive from the ring to the outside wiping out all three men.
  • We get the customary – “TNA! TNA!” chants for that one
  • AJ with a vicious looking DDT on the floor on RVD
  • He then tosses him back in the ring and covers RVD with his feet on the ropes for the win!
  • Winner: AJ Styles
  • Well worked match and nice to have the Heel with the momentum going into the pay-per view
  • We’ve still some time left so i’m guessing theres going to be some fallout from this one, Anderson’s not leaving in a hurry either.

Hardy asks for a mic after the match, he tells RVD to feel free to leave as he’s got this.He tells Anderson to come to the ring so they can settle this now. Anderson starts to come down to the ring, then backs off and starts to head to the back. Hulk Hogan’s music hits, and out comes the Hulkster himself and blocks Anderson’s way. Anderson takes a shot at Hogan, but Hogan blocks and nails Anderson, allowing Hardy to come after Anderson and a brawl breaks out as Mike Tenay tells us to go nowhere as Xplosion continues after the break whether Anderson likes it or not!

We’re back and Hardy and Anderson are still brawling at ringside, and Anderson seems to have gotten the better of Hardy. Tenay informs us that the footage from Laceys phone is available and we will see it before we go off air tonight. Hardy turns the tables…literally, as he drags a table over by the broadcast area and then goes up the steps onto the broadcast table and hits a Swanton bomb off the broadcast table onto Anderson and both go through the table. Hardy goes around high fiving the fans while we see twenty replays of the dive from different angles. Well thought out spot from both guys!

We close with the superb TNA Sacrifice preview. For those in the UK – TNA Sacrifice is up NEXT!
