(4) Knockout's #1 Contender Battle Royal
TNA's K.O. division is so thin, there are literally only five of them in this Battle Royal. Mickie and Tessmacher work on Madison and Gail Kim in opposite corners, while ODB chills in an empty corner. ODB finally gets inovlved and goes after Mickie James, while the two heels eliminate Miss Tessmacher. ODB and James realize what's going on, and take out Kim and Rayne with clotheslines. ODB gets up on the top rope and smashes Rayne head into the turnbuckle, right next to her crotch. James sends Gail Kim into the corner for the same thing.
Madison ends up on the apron, but gets a bunch of whiskey to the face for the elimination from ODB. She celebrates her elimination, but gets thrown over the top by Gail Kim. It's down to Gail and Mickie James now, with Kim in control, stomping away at Mickie head in the corner. The two end up going over the top rope together and getting stuck in the apron. James eliminates Gail Kim for the victory.
Winner: Mickie James
DOC is shown backstage with the other members of Aces & Eights. The leader says "don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out." He gets pissed, and the leader makes him leave. The door opens and there's a guy there holding an Aces & Eights jacket, as they've tricked him. They all celebrate on their newest member.
AJ Styles hits the ring looking pretty upset. He brings us up to speed, talking about Turning Point his match against Bobby Roode and James Storm. AJ says he was the guy who lost, and that's just the kind of year he's had. He says he's been accused of "banging" Dixie Carter, and having a baby with a crack head. He talks about people not believing that he was innocent and being just points away from being World Heavyweight Champion at Bound for Glory. He says the year isn't over yet though, with Christmas and Thanksgiving just around the corner, but he's not thankful for anything this year.
Out comes Chris Daniels and Kazarian to new music. Kaz tells AJ to stop crying, but every word out of his mouth was 100% accurate. Daniels says this is his worst year ever, and there's no light at the end of the tunnel for AJ Styles. Daniels says AJ is responsible for everything that his happened to himself, and calls him a broken, flawed little man. Daniels reminds him that he's nothing but a complete failure. AJ Styles says that in the record books, it says "AJ Styles beats Christopher Daniels" more than a few times. Styles challenges Daniels "one last time" to see who the better man really is. Kazarian cuts him off and says they have absolutely nothing to gain from wrestling AJ Styles, and he doesn't even know who he is anymore. Daniels cuts him off though, and says it might just be the perfect time to do "Styles/Daniels one last time" and says when they do, they'll find out who the real failure is.
