Kurt Angle says Bobby Roode has given him a tough time lately, but he needs to beat him just one time, or he doesn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
After a recap of the Chris Sabin / Velvet Sky / Austin Aries segment from last week, Velvet Sky records an #Impact365 clip of a gift Sabin sent her. She reads Sabin's apology letter and reveals a teddy bear and a lead pipe, then looks pissed and turns off the camera.
X Division Championship
Sabin showboats a bit so Aries throws a forearm and gets him with a waistlock takedown, then he puts him in a bridged chinlock but Sabin breaks it. Aries whips him out to the floor and heads up top, but Sabin hangs him in tree of woe position and steps on Aries' crotch before dropkicking him. Sabin suplexes him in from the apron for a two count, then he whips him outside but Aries lands on his feet and throws some elbows. Aries leapfrogs him and boxes his ears, hits a springboard moonsault and goes for a Brainbuster after a pin attempt. Sabin counters but Aries hits a discus forearm and an IED, then he goes for a Brainbuster but Sabin slams him into the bottom turnbuckle. Sabin gets a gift bag from Velvet and pulls out the teddy bear from earlier, and he flips out before Aries hits a top rope axe handle smash. Aries elbows him from the top rope, then he hits an IED in the opposite corner before landing a Brainbuster for the win.
Winner and NEW X Division Champion – Austin Aries
Steel Cage Match
Kurt sends Roode into the corner and stomps him, then Roode knocks him down and suplexes him before choking him on the bottom rope. Roode picks him up but Kurt throws Roode headfirst into the cage, then he connects with three German suplexes before calling for an Angle Slam. Roode counters with an armdrag and spinebuster for two, then he sends Kurt into the ropes but Kurt comes back with a quick Angle Slam for two. Kurt applies an ankle lock but Roode shifts and hits an enziguiri, then he clotheslines the back of Kurt's head to get a two count. (Cont'd…)
