Report by Josh Boutwell
The first installment of TNA’s new “One Night Only” PPV series puts the high flying X-Division on display and we kick things off with a special introduction and video package highlighting the X-Division.
Mike Tenay & Tazz welcome us to the show and they hype up the card for tonight. They’re going to run through the Top 10 moments in the history of the X-Division throughout the night. #10 is AJ Styles’ win over Psicosis, Jerry Lynn, & Low-Ki in a Round Robin Match to crown AJ as the first ever X-Division Champion.
X-Division Xscape Steel Cage Match
Lince Dorado vs. Puma vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Sam Shaw vs. Alex Silva vs. Christian York vs. Matt Bentley
As Matt Bentley comes to the ring highlights of his career, especially the first ever Ultimate X (when he was known as Michael Shane), are shown. Puma is rocking a sweet new mask that I haven’t seen him use before, it looks like a cross between the old mask and his time as Sydistiko in Lucha Libre USA. All of these guys have competed in TNA at one point or another except for Dorado who is a former CHIKARA King of Trios winner and a Puerto Rican masked star. As the bell rings they’re going to try and keep some order to kick things off as there will be tag rules to start off. These are Lucha Style tag rules, all a guy has to do is roll under the ropes and someone can replace him or they can tag out traditionally. Eliminations are pinfall or submission. When it gets down to the final two, the first man to escape the cage wins. Lince & Silva kick the match off. Lince goes for a kick but Silva catches his foot and hit’s a Dragonscrew Legwhip. Lince trips Silva up and then they exchange wristlocks. Silva whips Lince into the corner but he floats up and over him and then connects with a nice hurricanrana. Lince follows up with a Leaping Kick and then a Springboard Hurricanrana! Silva tags in York and he blocks a hurricanrana but Lince answers with a series of kicks only to get destroyed by a Flying Knee from York. Puma replaces Lince in the ring and exchanges chops with York. Puma then flips over York and goes for a hurricanrana but York cartwheels through it. York whips Puma into the corner but Puma uses his balance to headstand on the top rope into a Spinning Headscissors! Puma then goes for a hurricanrana but York lifts him up into the air. Puma lands on the top rope and kicks York back, and as he sets up for a high spot Rave grabs him and pulls him down across the top rope. Rave replaces Puma in the match and clotheslines York from behind. Shaw & Bentley put the boots to York and choke him on the mat. Rave covers York for an early nearfall and then tosses York into the boot of Bentley. Bentley slams York to the mat and continues to double-team him with Rave. They whip him into the ropes and connect with a Double Back Elbow. Sam Shaw comes in and hits Rave from behind and now all the guys are in the ring brawling! York & Dorado are taking turns chopping Rave in one corner and then York goes for a Suplex on Dorado, but he blocks it and hits a Tornado DDT off the ropes! 1…2…NO York kicks out! Its back down to two guys as York hits a series of knees followed by a Swinging Neckbreaker! Sam Shaw and Silva replace both guys as they hit them from behind. Silva hits Shaw with a Back Elbow and then covers him for a one count. Shaw answers with a Jawbreaker and then a dropkick for a nearfall of his own. Shaw hits a Vertical Suplex and then Bentley comes in and replaces Silva with a Fisherman Suplex on Shaw. Bentley climbs up top and hit’s the Picture Perfect Elbow! 1…2…NO Shaw kicks out! Bentley tosses Shaw into the corner and then attempts to whip him into the opposite corner but Shaw reverses it. York tags in and Shaw bails out as well. Lince comes in and rolls York up but only gets a two count. Lince hits a Springboard Missile Dropkick but York bounces off the ropes with a back kick and then the Mood Swing! LINCE IS ELIMIANTED! Puma dives off the top with a Missile Dropkick to York and then he hits a series of crazy strikes to Shaw. Puma goes for a Roundhouse Kick but Shaw ducks and then rolls Puma up! Puma rolls through and attempts a clothesline but Shaw ducks it as well and hit’s a Backstabber followed by a Neckbreaker! 1…2…3! PUMA IS ELIMIANTED! Silva takes out Shaw and then Bentley comes in and eats a series of strikes from Silva. Silva hits an Atomic Drop followed by a clothesline and then a Flying Knee! Shaw comes back in and hit’s the Backstabber/Neckbreaker combo on Silva! Bentley shoves Shaw away and pins Silva! SILVA IS ELIMINATED! Bentley and Shaw exchange punches but then Bentley pokes him in the eyes and attempts a Brainbuster, but Shaw blocks it only to eat the Sweet Shane Music from Bentley! Bentley and Rave double team Shaw in the corner. Rave hits a series of forearms but Shaw answers with a flurry of forearms of his own! He hits the ropes but eats the Move That Rocked The World from Rave! SHAW IS ELIMINATED! York grabs Rave and rolls Rave up but only gets a two count. Bentley decks York and then Rave holds York as Bentley climbs up top. Bentley dives off with a clubbing blow off the top to York. Bentley hits York with an elbow and then Rave lights York up with chops. Bentley tosses York to the side and taunts the crowd before going back to putting the boots to York. Rave and Bentley whip York into the corner and then Rave whips Bentley into a clothesline on York in the corner. Rave then charges at York but he gets his boot up and then catches Bentley with a boot as well! York with a Half Nelson Suplex to Rave and the Mood Swing to Bentley! 1…2…3! BENTLEY IS ELIMIANTED! Rave slams York into the cage wall! Rave climbs up to the top of the cage and attempts to escape, but York stops him and pulls him back down to the top rope.
