Bobby Lashley defeated Eric Young
Lashley is in control of the match and locks in a backbreaker. Young escapes out and gets a near fall. Young hits a dropkick and tries a crossbody. Lashley hits the Dominator for the win.
Really, the champion takes a clean loss before a big championship match? I really do not get this, but I do get the fact that nobody thinks that Young could beat Lashley "realistically." This is TNA, so realism does not fit the bill.
-Magnus comes out and cuts a promo with Bram. He says both of them are unstoppable, so they call out Willow. Willow comes out and says that they are ready to fight. Abyss comes out and they clear the ring of the Brits. I did not hate this segment because it showed another side of Magnus, the aggressive and intense side. Willow does a really good job at getting his character over with his odd voice and his crazy laugh. The matches are somewhat thrown together, with Abyss and Bram, but I do think it benefits all four guys. You will have a nice combination of speed, size and skill.
The Menagerie Is Horrible
This has nothing to do personally with anyone involved in this group, but this is a pure joke. Whoever thought this idea was good needs to be fired…immediately. Knux is a good wrestler and deserves to be taken seriously. They are feuding with the BroMans, which makes no sense. The music plays the entire match, but is extremely distracting to what is actually going on in the ring. Crazy Steve is athletic, but nobody cares about him. Knux can be as strong and intense as possible, but his gimmick is brutal. He is the "normal" one in a group of misfits. This will last another month or two, which is 1-2 months too long.
