It's wedding time, and Bobby Roode's music hits. Roode makes his way out with Austin Aries; neither of these guys were invited. Roode says that everyone here is about to witness a celebration of a wedding between Brooke Hogan and Bully Ray. However, the only celebration that should be going on is a celebration of how good they were as World Heavyweight Champions. Roode says that he was the longest reigning champion in TNA history; on queue, Aries says that he beat the longest reigning champion in TNA history. They talk about mutual respect for one another, but a lack of it from everyone else. Aries says that you used to be able to be proud of your Champions, with him and Roode carrying the show on their backs. He complains about all of the title holders in TNA right now, and they say it makes them sick.
Chavo and Hernandez make their way out and say they also have an objection to offer. Chavo says they don't object to the wedding, but to the statements made by the two clowns in the ring. Roode and Aries call them glorified wedding caterers, and make fun of their Spanish heritage. The champs laugh it off, but then attack the heels. A brawl ensues, with ends with Roode saving Aries and the heels bailing from the ring together.
After a commercial break, they air the replay of Sting and Hogan from earlier. They head backstage and Hogan is with Sting in his office. Hulk says it's not about Bully - he's not a bad guy, he's one of them - it's about Brooke. He just wants to protect his little girl. Sting says that he's not going to argue with that, but maybe Hulk has done such a good job raising Brooke that she can see the good in Bully Ray. He says the wrestling business has blinded and jaded the both of them. Hogan says he will always do the right thing for this business, and for his family.
Bully Ray makes his way out to the ring first, and it's completely decked out for the wedding. Tommy Dreamer and Miss Tessmacher come out as the first pair, followed by Spike and Mickie James. Taz and Christy Hemme are last, and we head to our final commercial break as Tenay teases Hulk Hogan making his decision one way or another, when they get back.
Brooke Hogan makes her way out, and pauses on the entrance ramp waiting for her dad, who doesn't come. At the last minute, the Hulkster makes his way out and walks his daughter down the aisle. The minister welcomes everyone, and does the typical wedding intros. He asks "who presents this woman" and the Hulkster says "I do" and gives her away. Brooke starts with her vows first, and says she can't believe she's doing this with Bully Ray, in the middle of a wrestling ring. Bully does his vows next, and says that he's a different, more happy person when he's around her. He says "I fricken love you" and they laugh.
The make it all the way through the giving of the ring, and as the minister is about to say "I now pronounce you..." Tazz grabs a mic and stops it. He asks Bully if he's sure he wants to go through with all of this, and tells Brooke to shut up, as it's none of her business. When Bully says "yes", he says he has as second question, "is it hot in here?"
Tazz takes off his suit coat to reveal that his vest is engraved with the Aces & Eights logo on the back. Everyone looks shocked, and the Eights hit the ring and take out everybody. Hogan and Bully are left laying in the ring as Brooke looks on, freaking out to end the show.
Well...definitely didn't see that one coming!
