Bully Ray defeated Rob Van Dam. Bully Ray came to ring, he then proceeded to challenge the audience and exchanged words with a few fans at ringside. Then he said since no one can beat him he challenged any wrestler in the back, RVD proceeded to come out. RVD hit the five star splash, but Bully Ray distracted the referee when he tried to use a chair. Hebner took the chair away, allowing Bully Ray to use a chain when Hebner was distracted and pinned RVD for the win.


World Heavyweight Championship Match: Bobby Roode defeated Jeff Hardy. Towards the end of the match Brian Hebner was knocked down, with the referee down & distracted, Robert Roode hit Jeff Hardy with a low blow, and then a fisherman's suplex for the win. Jeff Hardy got revenge post match when he hit a twist of fate on Robert Roode.

Cowboy James Storm defeated Kurt Angle. James Storm won the match with the Last Call superkick.

Final Thoughts: It was a fantastic event in my opinion, I also was fortunate to get a chance to meet and speak with former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Justin Credible. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen different is that last year during arrival, intermission and post event they offered autograph signings to the fans who did not purchase tickets with the meet and greet included. This year only tickets holders with the meet and greet option got that opportunity. It was still a solid show none the less, and when TNA comes back to CT, I will be attending.
