X Division Championship
Gauntlet for the Gold
Kazarian is #1. Sonjay Dutt is #2. Time periods are 60 seconds. They brawl a bit. #3 is Chad Collier, one of Jarrett’s “hired mercenaries”. #4 is… LA PARKA! The chairman of TNA as called by Tenay! Apparently he is La Park only now. That is curious. All four still in the ring. #5 is Miyamoto. Sonjay flies at Collier but Chad pulls the top rope down and Dutt tumbles out of the ring. #6 is Jerry Lynn. Collier charges Lynn who backdrops him out. La Park grabs Lynn and chops him. #7 is Joey Matthews. #8 is Nosawa who joins Miyamoto as both Team Japan. Jerry Lynn is out. Huge pop for #9 AJ Styles. Ring is filling up nicely. Styles selling the brawl from earlier. Styles pounds Miyamoto out of the ring. Styles ducks Nosawa’s elimination attempt and does a springboard clothesline to take down Nosawa. #10 is Chris Vaughn from Black Shirt Security. Some arm drags, then La Park takes him down and DOES A DANCE! La Park is in yellow and black for those who follow that stuff. #11 is Petey Williams. Canadian Destroyer is the coolest move ever. Face to face with AJ and Joey Matthews takes out Styles from behind. Styles eliminates Matthews and goes to work on Nosawa. #12 is D Ray 3000 who gets a big pop. And as he enters, he is eliminated. Action continues and #13 is Mikey Batts. #14 Jason Cross as the scrubs get out of the way for the last few stars. Styles eliminates Mikey with a standing enziguri. Jerrel Clark is #15. Cool double team with La Park and Nosawa on Styles. Chris Vaughn is eliminated. Enziguri by La Park on Styles. #16 is Kid Kash. Nosawa and La Park eliminate each other. Kid Kash comes in and attacks. Cool backbreaker on Clark. #17 is Nigel McGinnis from the UK. Clark eliminated by Kash. Psicosis is #18! Jason Cross is out. West and Tenay put over the first X Division Title match (Styles vs. Psicosis vs. Low Ki vs. Jerry Lynn double eliminate). Styles does the “pele” and sends Kash out. #19 is Sharkboy. Kash coems back and eliminates Style and they brawl for a while. Dallas comes in to attack too. Double team brawling on Styles. Oh yeah the match. #20 is Chris Sabin as the camera returns to the ring. Shark Boy is out. #21 is the Amazing Red. Kazarian still in the ring since #1, about 20 minutes now. McGinnis is out with double dropkicks from Sabin and Red. #22 is Michael Shane. Shane with a superkick on Psicosis and Kazarian guides Psicosis over the top. Sabin attacks them, but they eliminate him. Final four are Red, Petey Williams, Shane and Kazarian. Red head scissors Shane to the floor, and everyone pops. Kazarian is shocked. He was #1. Williams and Kazarian beat down Red together. They work together for a bit, then Kazarian turns on Williams. Williams eliminates Kazarian so we are definitely going to have a new champ. Now we have a match.

Petey Williams vs. Amazing Red
Williams goes for Canadian Destroyer but Red reverses and hits a fireman’s carry slam for 2. Red comes off the top and cant get a 3 count. Red covers again but Bobby Roode comes down and distracts the ref. We already saw THIS EXACT PERSON DOING THIS EARLIER. Red recovers, comes back into the ring with a sunset flip, Williams grabs the ropes, the ref kicks it and Red gets a 2 count. Red’s bandana comes off and he has a red fro. Roode and now D’Amore get involved, hockey stick to the back of Red. Williams hits the SUPER AWESOME Canadian Destroyer and gets the win and the title.
Winner and NEW X Division Champ: Petey
