Backstage, Devon is trying to convince Ken Anderson to join up with the Aces & Eights. Anderson says he really enjoys the recruitment process, as he's got a hot girl on both of his arms. DOC comes in and says that Sting is coming back tonight, and wants to know the answer now. Anderson says if he's going to do it, they all need to make sure they don't show Sting even an ounce of fear.
DOC comes out to the ring with his trusty hammer, and calls out Sting. He says that even though Sting has been telling people he's a "marked man", he doesn't feel like it. He says he's sick of waiting, and calls Sting out to face the man that's going to cripple him once and for all. DOC says the people at home, and the Impact Zone want Sting's return, but gets cut off by a baseball bat that falls from the ceiling. Just as DOC is freaking out, telling Sting he's not afraid, TNA cuts to the worst placed commercial break I have ever seen...
(2) Christian York vs. Kid Kash
This is match one of a 4-man tournament to crown a new #1 contender to the X-Division Championship. Kash springboards into the ring, but gets caught with a standing dropkick. York hits him with big boot, followed by a half-Nelson suplex. York goes for the pin, but only gets two.
Kid Kash gets some momentum and takes his opponent down with a bodyslam. He goes up top but comes down into York's knees. York tries to go off the ropes with a cartwheel, signs of Tajiri, but it's pretty sloppy. Kash rolls him up with an inside cradle and almost gets the win. York counters a bridge pin and gets the Mood Swing for the three-count.
Winner: Christian York
Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez make their way out dressed to compete. Joey Ryan comes out next with Matt Morgan following behind with his arm in a sling. Morgan says that when you're lifting 800 pounds in the gym, injuries happen. He says he'll be fine by Genesis, and says Joey Ryan is going to kick Hernandez' ass, to which Ryan doesn't look too happy about.
(3) Joey Ryan vs. Hernandez
Ryan gets destroyed, being thrown around the ring by Hernandez like a rag doll. Out of nowhere Matt Morgan takes down Hernandez with a clothesline.
Winner via DQ: Hernandez
After the match, Morgan lays out Chavo with a Carbon Footprint and the heels stand tall over the tag team champions.
