Mike Killam

Backstage, Devon takes Joe Park's phone and tells him to stay out of "family" business. Bully comes up from behind and hits him in the head, laying him out. Devon chokes him with his chain as Bully warns him again to stay out of their family business. 

Mickie James says that she feels for Velvet Sky and her injury, but at the end of the day she is sick and tired of being overlooked, because there is nobody better than Mickie James. She talks about having been a champion, and fighting injured, and that's all part of the job. 

Kazarian and Chris Daniels make their way out to watch the next match. Daniels talks about the "Bad Influence movie" and being in talks with Morgan Freeman to play Dixie Carter. Kazarian says that they got AJ Styles his very own shirt. He says it's time for Bad Influence to become the World Tag Team Champions of the World, Part III. 

Austin Aries and Bobby Roode make their way out and call Bad Inluence "dumb and dumber". He says before anybody starts worshipping anybody, they're getting their rematch for the titles. They make a bunch of jokes about Kaz and Daniels being gay together. Kazarian jokes about Aries being a "dirty Vegan" and wearing sunglasses inside. While they are bickering, Chavo and Hernandez walk up behind them and attack Roode and Aries. They clear the ring and hold up their belts. 

Backstage, Matt Morgan talks about Hulk Hogan's mountain of mistakes that are adding up, including Bully Ray, not naming him the #1 contender, Jeff Hardy getting injured, etc. He says the whole situation just could have been avoiding by Hulk Hogan doing the "right thing". 

(4) TNA TV Championship Match
Devon (c) vs. Samoa Joe

Devon attacks from behind as the bell rings and this replacement match gets underway. Joe fires back with quick jabs, but Devon hits him with an elbow and delivers a spear off the ropes. He continues to work over Joe for several minutes, using mostly rest holds, but the Samoan dodges out of the way of a corner splash and hits a step-up kick. The Aces & Eights hit the ring to distract the ref, and Ken Anderson sneaks up from behind and lays out Joe with brass knucks. The ref turns around and counts the three. 

Winner: Devon
