It didn’t have the same pop as the opening match of weeks past, but still an ok match. 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Shane Douglas is in the middle of the ring and he says it isn’t personal, just business. He loves TNA, but he never got a second chance while Daniels did. He wants to know where is his second chance. He tells TNA management and he demands his second chance. He says that he will make Daniels’ life miserable until he gets it.

Kip James comes in and says that he needs to work and he wants to be on the roster. Kip says that he is desperate and Mick says that he will see what he can do.

This was a great match with very good tension between Creed and Sabin. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

The Beatuiful People are attacking Tara backstage, but she seems to be too much for them. Tara sends Angelina Love running as she beats up Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky.

Lauren is with Daffney and asks what is the deal with her infatuation with Taylor Wilde. Daffney says that crazy people don’t have logic, and these “people” are telling her to beat up Taylor Wilde.

Mike Tenay is with the Main Event Mafia and asks how they feel about Samoa Joe’s hitlist. Nash says that it is what it is and that the hardest part of life is living.

This was a good match, but predictable. 3 out of 5 stars.

Jeff Jarrett comes to the ring and calls out his “good friend” Eric Young. Jarrett says that he understands that he had a short fuse, but EY got his shot at the title last week. Jarrett says that EY is a great wrestler, but he won the match. Jarrett says that all he had to realize was that Double J was the better man last week. Double J says that this can go as far as he wants it to go and the crowd eggs on EY to fight. EY asks if he is supposed to appologize. Young says that his dad wasn’t there and that Jarrett was a role model for him and father figure. He says that Jarrett has held a ton of titles and that he started TNA and how it is now. EY says that he gave the crowd a choice. Then, Young goes on to talk about his family and that he is the American Dream. EY says that Jarrett’s dad never gave Jeff the time of day either.

EY says that his concern and his heart goes out to Jeff’s daughters because they have to settle for second place. Jarrett slaps EY and the two brawl in the ring.

JB is with Mick Foley and says that it would only to be a matter of time for security. Rocco and Sal come in and now I assume they will be security for Foley.

Is it too late to order a body bag?

Morgan goes to test Neal’s strength, but Neal kicks Morgan and puts him in a headlock. Morgan finally ends the game of cat and mouse as Morgan hits the elbows in a corner and a back drop. Morgan throws Neal into the top turnbuckle and then hits a standing dropkick and Morgan picks up Neal for a two count.

Also, next week Sting will go up against Kurt Angle for the King of the Mountain qualifying match. He says that Double J has snapped and that he made Foley look like a liar. Foley says that Jarrett will have a “hardcore” reaction next week for his striking of Earl Hebner.

JB is with Sting and asks about the King of the Mountain qualifying match. Sting says that they are stronger than they have been in a long time. Morgan comes in and interupts Sting’s interview. Morgan asks about getting in to the Mafia. Sting says that the reason Morgan has no respect and when he does find it, then to talk to him. Morgan says that he guarantees that he will be in the Mafia.

JB is with Steiner and Booker T and Booker says that he will be hurt this week and next week. Steiner says that it ain’t going to happen. Steiner says that Samoa Joe will have his blood shed next week.

King of the Mountain Qualifying Match under Lethal Lockdown rules: Samoa Joe vs Kevin Nash

Joe talks to the mystery advisor and then goes to the ring. Joe grabs a kendo stick and Nash grabs a kendo stick and a trash can lid. The two trade kendo stick shots until Nash backs Joe into a corner where he lands a few knees and hands. Nash drives the kendo stick into the Stomach and hits a shot to the back. Samoa Joe counters by sending Nash into the cage.

Coming out of commercial, Joe is in control with Nash in the corner as Joe lands a flurry of right hands. Nash hits a low blow and Nash grabs a trash can lid. Nash hits joe with the lid three times and only earns a two count. Joe hits Nash with a trash can lid and puts his thumbs into Nash’s eyes. Nash hits Joe with the trash can lid again and then goes for a kendo stick. Joe hits with a drop kick, senton, and a knee drop for a two count. Joe applies a rear naked choke  and drops Nash. Joe grabs a hockey stick and breaks it over Nash’s back for a three count. This was a match that should have went longer and I feel suffered because of the shortened time. 3 out of 5 stars.
