Douglas Williams (c) vs. Brian Kendrick â€“ X-Division Championship â€“ Ultimate X Match or Submission Match
As Kendrick was taking his jacket off, Williams tried to climb the girders as the bell rings. Kendrick is able to take him down pretty quickly. Kendrick tosses Williams to the floor, and tries to climb the girder, but Williams is back in, and tosses him off. Kendrick is back up, and locks on a Cobra Clutch, and then tosses Williams to the floor. Kendrick climbs the girder, and now Williams follows, and shoves Kendrick off, and he falls across the top ropes, then to the floor. Williams (who is afraid of heights) gets back down, and beats on Kendrick on the floor. Williams pulls out a pair of gloves, and climbs the girder, then starts sliding across the X ropes towards the belt, however Kendrick climbs up behind him, and tries to latch the Cobra Clutch in mid-air, but they both fall down, and it looks like Kendrick is knocked out, and Williams locks on a sleeper, and the ref stops the match after Kendrick doesnâ€™t respond to lifting his arm.

Taz & Tenay go over the main event.
Bubba is with Christy backstage. He takes the mic out of her hands and says that Jesse Neal is a failure, just like her playboy.
Brother Ray vs. Jesse Neal vs. Brother Devon
Bubba is out first, and he hides on the side of the stage. When Jesse comes out, he gets jumped by Bubba from behind. Devonâ€™s music hits, but he doesnâ€™t come out. They cut to his dressing room, and it is barricaded shut, and you can tell Devon is slamming on the door, trying to get out. The bell rings, and Bubba is dominating the start. The 4 Hardcore wash-ups appear in the crowd, and distracts Bubba enough so that Neal gets a spear. Bubba kicks out, and takes right back over. He gets a chair and starts to stalk Neal with it, this brings Shannon Moore out (you know, instead of freeing Devon). While the ref is trying to keep Moore out, Bubba crushes Neal with a chair shot. Devon finally comes out, and he & Bubba have a staring contest. Just when we think that Devon is on the same page as Bubba, they start slugging it out. Neal is back up, goes for a spear on Bubba, but Bubba moves, and Neal hits Devon instead. Neal canâ€™t believe he just did that, and gets caught in the Bubba Bomb for the pin.

Rayne gets a chair, but when she gets in the ring, Love kicks the chair back in her face. A motorcycle comes into the Impact Zone, and a woman in all black with a full helmet gets her way ringside. Love comes down to the floor to see who it is, and the masked woman shoves Love into the ringpost, then she shoves the ref. The ref calls for the bell, and decides that since there was a blatant DQ, Love will become the new Womanâ€™s Champ.
