Forget all about the wrath of Dixie.

In a show that built drama for the company’s next pay per view, there’s plenty going on in TNA. All three title divisions have entertaining feuds and the Dixie Carter/MVP storyline continues to thicken.


10-Man Over The Top Gauntlet for #1 Contender’s Spot for TNA Title: Senada vs. Willow vs. James Storm vs. Gunner vs. Bobby Roode vs. Ethan Carter III vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Abyss vs. Eric Young: Rockstar Spud helped ECIII eliminate Willow and soon enough, Senada, Roode, Lashley and Ray were all out. Storm used the Last Call to eliminate Gunner and Young leg scissored ECIII out of the ring to leave just three left. Young then eliminated Storm and after fighting off Abyss for a few minutes, Clotheslined Abyss out of the ring to earn the title shot.

Number One Contender for Knockouts Title: Gail Kim vs. Britney vs. Angelina Love w/ Velvet Sky vs. ODB: This was a fun match filled with offense.Britney showcased her athletic ability, while ODB was all about the power moves. In the end, the Beautiful People teamed up with hairspray in Gail Kim’s face and a Big Boot in a Love win.

Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards vs. TNA Tag Team Champion Jessie Godderz and Zema Ion: The titles were on the line, even with Robbie E. not in the arena. Although the Wolves were in control throughout, Robbie E. joined the fight at the end to get it thrown out.

TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus vs. Eric Young: It was a hard fought match- one where Magnus looked for shortcuts, especially with Abyss not allowed near the ring, but Young was vigilant. Even after a Michinoku Driver and Low Blow, Young was still in a position to win. After a failed Rollup from Young, Magnus got up slowly and walked right into a Young Piledriver for the win.
