Back from break, and senior referee Earl Hebner has made a decision that because they went through the table at the same time, a decision has not been made, and the match will continue. Hardy turns around into a huge spinebuster. Roode hoists his opponent up with a fireman's carry, but Hardy reverses and hits a Twist of Fate that puts Bobby on the table. Hardy goes up high, but Roode rolls off the table, and Jeff hits the Swanton Bomb over the table anyways. They fight up to the top turnbuckle, teasing going through tables on either side of the ring, but Roode settles for crotching Hardy on the ropes. Bobby Roode tries for a suplex to the outside, but Hardy breaks out of it and kicks Roode off the apron and through the table.
Decision: Jeff Hardy wins and advances to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship tournament finals.
-Dixie Carter is backstage in an #Impact365 video that we posted earlier this week, saying that she's getting her title back.
-Ethan Carter III is out, and says that he's faced legends from all over the world. But there's one man that has been in the ring with the likes of Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, and Bret "The Hitman" Hart. That's why tonight his hand-picked opponent is… Earl Hebner! Hebner says he's not a wrestler. EC3 has Rockstar Spud bring out Brian Hebner to referee the match. Carter tells Hebner to lay down on the mat, or he will put him into the ground forever.
ETHAN CARTER III vs. EARL HEBNER
EC3 puts a finger on Earl and tells Brian Hebner to count. He does so very slowly, and Carter picks up the easy win.
Decision: EC3 wins via pinfall.
