TNA Impact Wrestling
The Aces & Eights make their way to the ring to kick off tonight's show, as Mike Tenay, Todd Keneley and Taz chime in at the broadcast group. Devon introduces the newest members of the team, Wes Brisco and Garrett Bischoff. Brisco tells Hulk Hogan that he's the reason he turned on TNA, being made to start from the very bottom with a Gut Check match. He says his father gave Hogan his first pair of wrestling boots, and he's been shown nothing but disrespect so far. Devon says they will always have an ace up their sleeve.
Backstage, Tara and Jesse Godderz complain to Brooke Hogan about flying coach all the way to the UK. Hogan books Tara against Miss Tessmacher later tonight, and tells Jesse to go get her a coffee.
(1) X-Division Championship
King and Ion work together from the start to pick apart the champion, but their partnership desolves almost immediately as King clotheslines Zema from the ring. Kenny with a big senton over the top rope, taking out the Champion, but Ion avoids it and delivers one of his own! With all three back in the ring, Van Dam gets a heel kick on King, but plays to the fans until Ion hits him with a spinning DDT off the second rope. The heels work each other for awhile while the Champ recovers on the outside. King hits Ion with the Northern Lights Suplex, but Van Dam comes off the top rope with the Five Star Frogsplash on King. The Champ covers Ion off King's finisher and picks up the 3-count.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
