TNA Final Resolution Opener:
The show opens with a video package highlighting the main feuds heading into tonight’s PPV.
The pyro hits and Todd Kenely welcomes us to the show. He’s quickly interrupted by James Storm’s music, and the Cowboy makes his way out to the ring.
Storm grabs a mic and says he’s not scheduled to be here tonight. He says he’s not scheduled to wrestle, but that won’t stop him from having a little bit of fun with the fans. Last Thursday there was an incident with Aces and 8′s and he told Jeff Hardy he’d watch his back, and he did. Then on the ramp he saw Bobby Roode give a thumbs up, so what he’s here to do, is to ruin Bobby Roode’s celebration party before he even gets a chance. Storm wants to look him square in the eye before punching him in the face and say sorry about your… but he’s interrupted by Kaz.
Kaz says that it was Willie Nelson who said Mama’s don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys, and he was talking about this one. He says other than AJ Styles, Storm has grown to be the biggest man-baby in the company. Everyone has had to listen to Storm complain and moan, and he’s a drunk. Kaz says Storm is a raging, proud alcoholic. Kaz says lately Storm has developed another nasty habit, and that’s sticking his nose in other people’s business. He’s come out to do Storm a service and tell him that it’s time he cut this cheap dime store Toby Keith routine. Saddle up, get on your horse and ride off into the sunshine. Storm complains that Kaz had all day to come up with a promo and that’s all he gets. Where he comes from, people don’t like the sunshine because they drink the moonshine. Kaz makes fun of the crowd for cheering drinking. Storm says there’s more beer drinkers here tonight, and he’s got a great idea because of them, why doesn’t Kaz climb in and take Roode’s a** whipping for him, unless he needs to ask his boyfriend first. Kaz says he’s not here to engage in fisticuffs, and there’s no ref, the match isn’t even sanctioned.
Storm says he doesn’t need a ref to whoop Kaz’s a**. Storm heads out of the ring and slams Kaz’s head into the barricade, then the ring steps. Storm blasts Kaz with a big right before tossing him into the barricade, and then into the ring, and we’ve got a match.
Kazarian vs. James Storm
Storm takes Kaz down to the mat and hits him with a series of rights, but he lets up for a bit and turns around into a big clothesline from Kaz. Kaz chokes Storm against the middle rope, standing on his back, before choking him with his boot in the corner. Kaz hits Storm with a neckbreaker that’s good enough for a near fall. Kaz wrenches Storm’s neck, but Storm fights to his feet before being yanked to the mat by his hair. Kaz picks Storm up to his feet and tosses him through the ropes out to the floor. Kaz follows and hits Storm with a series of elbows to the back of the head before taking him over to the barricade, going to the apron, and leaping off with a double axe handle smash.
Kaz brings things back into the ring for a near fall before focusing in on Storm’s head and neck. Storm is able to fight out of the hold and hits Kaz with a series of clotheslines and a big flying forearm. Storm hits a double underhook suplex to put down Kaz for a two count. Kaz rolls to the apron and leaps back in with a huge DDT to put Storm down for another two count.
Storm gets up and catches Kaz with a huge Alabama slam before hitting Kaz with closing time. Storm hypes up the crowd, clapping and getting ready for the last call. Kaz pulls the ref in front of him to avoid it, and almost connects with fade to black. Storm fights out and hits the last call superkick out of nowhere to put Kaz down for three.
Winner: James Storm
Storm grabs the mic again and apologizes for Kaz’s luck.
