Matt Cardona comes to the ring with Chelsea, VSK and Mike Knox. Cardona says this is his pay-per-view and he earned it, but he can’t compete. He says he’s proud of everyone in the ring and they should be proud too, and everyone knows he’s the NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Cardona says the title was beautiful when he won it, but now it’s got some scratches and blood on it, and it’s missing some jewels because he takes it all over the world defending it.
Cardona says it’s no secret that Nick Aldis doesn’t like him, but they’re more alike than Aldis knows. Cardona says he needs the title and he woke up from surgery and it’s the first thing he thought of. He says he needs the title and doesn’t want to give it up, but he’s the champion and calls the shots. Billy Corgan slowly walks to the ring and speaks with Cardona out of range from the mics, but he motions for Cardona to hand him the title. Cardona fights the decision, but Corgan tells him that he must give the title up.
Nick Aldis comes to the ring with a mic and says he’s not the only one that’s hurt because his back is injured from carrying the company for five years. Aldis rips on Cardona and calls him an ex-WWE guy that conned Billy Corgan into giving him a top spot. Aldis says this isn’t Cardona’s belt or Billy’s, it belongs to Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair and the fans. Aldis says Cardona will never be a world champion, and there’s a reason why Ric Flair wants him at the Jim Crockett Promotions show at Starrcast, and there’s a reason why he gave Harley Race’s final interview. Aldis tells Cardona to go heal up and stop jerking off over his own Tweets, because he’s going to close the show for the fans and wrestle a match.

Trevor Murdoch comes to the ring, followed by Thom Latimer and Kamille, who says Latimer is a world championship-caliber athlete. Latimer argues with Corgan about being in the main event, then Sam Shaw makes his way to the ring. Latimer asks if he’s got anything to say, Shaw says ‘I want in’ and gets ready to fight.
Cardona still has the title and Corgan asks him to trust his decision, then Cardona finally gives up the title and leaves.

Murdoch dives on everyone from the top turnbuckle, which gets a “holy shit” chant from the fans. Murdoch is grabbing his knee as he gets up, while Latimer spears Aldis in the ring. Shaw pulls the referee out of the ring to break up the pin, then he goes under the ring while the other three competitors do a Tower Of Doom spot in the ring. Murdoch is slow to make the cover and only gets two, then Shaw comes back and whips Murdoch into the guardrail. Latimer gets a near fall after a moonsault, then Aldis puts Murdoch in the Figure Four.
