The Aces & Eights are in their clubhouse, and the leader wants to know what happened out in the Impact Zone earlier in the night. They talk about Sting returning on 1/3/13, and Devon says he knows "somebody" who might be able to help them out. They vote on it, and it appears that person will have a sit-down meeting with the Eights next week.
(3) TNA Knockouts Championship
The television feed cut out during this match, likely due to a local snow storm. The finish saw Mickie James hitting a Thesz press on Jesse from the top rope to the outside. James would re-enter the ring, but a distraction from Jesse was enough for Tara to pick up the win.
Following a commercial break, another video package for Joseph Park in OVW airs. During the video he gets busted open and freaks out, hitting a Black Hole Slam and then "snapping out of it" again.
(4) TNA World Heavyweight Championship
They take a commercial break at the very start of the match, but when they come back Jeff Hardy is just breaking out of a side headlock from Aries, dropping him with a headlock takedown and a standing dropkick. Hardy gets ten mounted punches in the corner as the Impact Zone chants along with each one. Aries rolls to the outside and the champ follows him, but gets thrown into the steel steps as TNA goes to yet another commercial break.
Following the last commercial, Aries is still in control after knocking the champ off the top rope. A running dropkick connects in the corner, but Hardy kicks out at two. Hardy avoids the Brainbuster and drops the challenger with a facebuster from the powerbomb position. He goes up top for Whisper in the Wind, but Aries rolls out of the way and the champion lands hard on the mat. Aries again goes for the Brainbuster, but Hardy manuevers out of it and gets the Twist of Fate, sending Aries into the corner. Hardy tries for a running splash, but gets knocked back into referee Brian Hebner. Hardy checks on the ref, but Aries gets him with a low blow. Brainbuster connects, but there's nobody to count the pin. Another official makes his way out, but Bobby Roode runs down and pulls him out of the ring. Roode counts to two on the mat, and Aries turns around to realize who is in the ring. Roode hits him with the Spinebuster, and Hardy follows it up with the Swanton Bomb for the three.
Winner: Jeff Hardy
After the match, Hulk Hogan is walking to his car ready to leave the Impact Zone. The interviewer is trying to ask him what's going on with Bully Ray and he's getting ignored. He says the main event picture is chaos and that's his primary concern. Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan are shown making out in the background.
