Bully RayThe Main Event

Bully Ray defeated Jeff Hardy to retain the TNA Heavyweight Championship. This was a very entertaining Full Metal Mayhem match. Both men put on some good spots. I really have to point out one big mistake. When Ray gets hit with Twist of Fate, it was SO OBVIOUS that the next spot where he lays on the table was planned. We all know it happens, but this botch looked pretty bad.

The ending came when Bully Ray had a hammer given to him by Taz. He hits Hardy with it, which causes him to fall off the ladder. Bully Ray retains. This is interesting to me because it took a little hammer to stop Hardy. Tables, Ladders, Chair, and Stairs could not stop him, but this did? The ending was logical for the heel to retain, while Hardy still feels a little screwed over. I get it, but do not like it.
