1. Chris Sabin revealed that he had a torn ACL and cut a heartfelt promo. TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Roode, like the true bully his character is, kick Sabin and verbally berated him before his Destination X opponent Austin Aries ran in for the save.
2. Bully Ray will wrestle Joseph Park in an "Anything Goes Match" next week with the stipulation that no one can interfere and that Abyss is legally restrained.
3. Brother Devon def. Crimson to retain the TNA TV Title. Crimson goes from undefeated streak to losing streak. There goes a solid heel.
4. Madison Rayne kissed Earl Hebner, revealing he was her secret crush. Wait----What?!
5. Flip Casanova def. Dakota Darsow in the battle of X-Division newcomers. Casanova earns a spot in the X-Division Title Tournament at Destination X.
6. Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion Kenny King def. Lars Only to earn an X-Division tourney spot. Apparently, ROH wasn't happy because he verbally agreed to a contract, but didn't sign on the dotted line. Whoops.
7. TNA Knockouts Champion Miss Tessmacher and Tara def. Gail Kim and Madison Rayne.
8. Christopher Daniels claims AJ Styles impregnated Claire Lynch or something. AJ challenges Daniels to a Last Man Standing match. Expect interference from Dixie Carter and Kazarian in that one.
9. Jeff Hardy def. James Storm in a Bound For Glory Series match. Good main event.
10. Austin Aries confronted Bobby Roode with GM Hulk Hogan in the ring. Roode backed down as Aries finally vacated his X-Division Title before this Sunday's Destination X pay-per-view.
