TNA “Victory Road” PPV Opener:
The show opens with a big, elaborate video package centered around the Sting vs. Bobby Roode main event.
Following the video package, we enter the arena as the pyro explodes and the announcers, Taz and Mike Tenay, run down tonight’s featured bouts.
In-Ring Segment: Bully Ray & James Storm
Bully Ray’s music hits and out he comes. Bully Ray quickly makes his way to the ring. Ray grabs the mic and orders the sound-man to shut off his ring music. He paces around in a huff before sending a referee to the back. The crowd chants for Devon. Ray doesn’t seem pleased. Ray asks the fans if they know who he is. The crowd chants “you suck” at Ray. Ray says that right now he is the talk of the wrestling world. He claims to be trending worldwide on Twitter. He says he’s trending, not because he’s the toughest man in the world, not because he’s calf-zilla (I love how fat people brag about having big calf muscles, by the way) but because he’s taking the PPV hostage. Ray threatens that the fans will not get a PPV tonight if he doesn’t get what he wants — which is for his match with James Storm to be for the #1 contendership at Lockdown. He claims he’ll beat up anyone who tries coming to the ring to stop him. James Storm finally comes out. He says Ray has chicken legs. Storm says he’ll knock him out and remove him from the ring. Storm agrees to make their match for the #1 contendership.
Bully Ray vs. James Storm
From there, Storm hits the ring and the match is immediately underway. Ray ambushes Storm and beats him into the corner, taking him to each corner of the ring to pound away at him. Ray grabs Storm’s beer and takes a swig, but as he turns around he runs into a Last Call superick by Storm. Storm pins him for the easy 1-2-3. The match is over, just like that!
Winner: James Storm
