Your winners, Tommy Dreamer and Terry Funk!
The crowd chanted "Thank you Terry!"
Dreamer took the mic and said he has an announcement before everyone leaves. He said that they had a great show again thanks to the fans. He said a 69 year old man with a torn abdominal stole the show. Dreamer said that this will be the last time you see them tag and it's been a hell of a run from 1995 on, so thank you very much.
Funk said that Dreamer is a great man and gives him more credit than he deserves. He said that Dreamer was there to stay from day one. Funk said that not many people knew it but he knew that Dreamer had it, because he knew Dreamer loved the profession that Terry's father taught him.
Dreamer said that by the size of this house, they are of this house, they are onto something and that's the next show...and then BULLY RAY hit the ring from the crowd and laid out both Funk and Dreamer. He began whipping them with a chain.
Bully grabbed the ring mic and said, "Do you know who I am?" He kept whipping Dreamer and Funk. He told Dreamer that he was his best friend in the world but Dreamer doesn't invite him to HOH? "That's how you do me?" He attacked Dreamer. He invited Dreamer to come back here on December 30th - One Night Only - TNA presents Old School. He challenged Dreamer to face him in an Old School Street Fight with Falls Counting Anywhere in the business.
Ray said that he wouldn't miss this in the entire world. He said he was going to destroy Terry Funk and no one can do a damn thing about it. Spike Dudley hit the ring and went for the Acid Drop but Bully tossed him and attacked him.
Devon hit the ring. They teased fighting but instead hit Dreamer with 3D. Bully said that he's been waiting for this moment his entire career. He told Devon they were going to piledrive him through the table.
ENTER SANDMAN HITS.
Sandman hit the ring and caned the Dudleys but was overwhelmed. He was caned and left laying. Bubba said this is what happened when you mess with the best tag team in the world. He said tonight was House of Hardcore 3D. He and Devon walked out.
