This was meant to be the go-home show for the now-cancelled ‘TNA: No Place Like Home’ so as a result, some of the matches referred to didn’t end up happening but were left in.
We start with a cold open looking at the TNA and Impact’s history, their roster through the years, and their champions. Scott D’Amore and David Penzer are on commentary.
Hernandez defeated “The Natural” Chase Stevens via pinfall
Stevens started off strong, but was dropped with a single headbutt. Hernandez went for the Border Toss, but escaped and hit a german suplex. Hernandez hit a springboard shoulder tackle, but Stevens later came back with a running clothesline and a dropkick to Hernandez. Stevens then hit a superplex for a near fall, but ultimately fell to the Border Toss.
D’Amore and Penzer ran down the card and we got a good video package on the Knockouts, giving us rundown on some of the biggest moments and champions.
Jimmy Jacobs then interviewed Gail Kim who talked about the Knockouts Gauntlet and who she wondered would appear.
We got another video package showing Don Callis introducing Ultimate X and highlights from all the matches.
Jimmy Jacobs then interviewed Ace Austin about defending his championship in an Ultimate X match on the now-cancelled TNA nostalgia show. Austin said that he didn’t win his first Ultimate X, but he also wasn’t a champion then. Now he is and he’ll do anything to defend his title.
Suicide & Manik defeated Johnny Swinger & Kid Kash via pinfall
They made reference to Manik and Suicide being the same person, and D’Amore said Wikipedia was wrong. Fair. Swinger and Kash jumped their opponents to start the match. Manik fought back, hitting a dropkick on Kash and then he and Suicide hit a trio of poetry in motions on Swinger.
Manik worked over Swinger’s arm with an arm breaker, but fell to a kick from behind by Kash allowing his team to take control. Kash and Swinger worked over Manik for a few minutes, but Manik eventually fought his way out and got the hot tag to Suicide. They ran through a host of high-flying moves on Kash and Swinger, leading to a Manik crossbody and a Suicide swanton for the win.
We got a video package about the King of the Mountain match rules, with the ongoing joke that there are so many rules, no one remembers them all and that it takes too long to explain either way.
Scott Steiner then came out to the ring, to talk on a live mic – so brace yourself. He said that he is the reason why T&A shows up on TNA and that a lot of people on the Internet say he’s not politically correct and not part of the PC culture. He spoke about his (now cancelled) match teaming with Petey Williams and cut another instalment of his Steiner Math promo.
Joey Ryan interrupted, saying that Steiner should of been cancelled a long time ago. Ryan invited Steiner to join him in Cancel Culture as “Big Proper Pump.” Steiner, of course clotheslined him and threw him out of the ring.
Raven talked about how the Raven’s Clockwork Orange House of Fun match was created, saying that it was a match designed to match his own psyche and that the purpose was to scar people.
Rhino defeated Madman Fulton by disqualification
Fulton tried rushed Rhino, but Rhino caught him with some punches and a clothesline to the outside. The pair brawled on the outside, ramming each other into the ringpost. Fulton tackled Rhino into the corner and worked him over. Rhino tried to fight back, but Fulton cut him off several times.
Fulton went for a top-rope headbutt, but Rhino moved out of the way and began to run wild on Rhino. Rhino hit his belly-to-belly and set up for the gore, but oVe attacked Rhino for the DQ. A very TNA finish.
Tommy Dreamer came down to make the save, but Fulton, Dave and Jake Crist still had the numbers advantage.
The lights went out, and then Raven was in the ring wielding a kendo stick. He attacked the Crist brothers and then offered Dreamer a hug, only to smack him with the stick.
Raven left, leaving oVe to beat down Rhino and Dreamer again. Manik and Suicide came down for the save. They were then followed by Kash, Stevens, and Swinger who ran out to brawl. Hernandez then appeared and said it’s not TNA if there’s not a brawl happening somewhere in the arena. Kash and Hernandez then hit stereo dives to close the show.
