WINNER: Williams at 2:38.
X Division office: Austin Aries addressed the X Division wrestlers to decide who should face X Division champion Zema Ion. TNA jump-cut through comments from Kenny King, Sonjay Dutt, and Rashard Cameron making their case to face Ion tonight. Dutt noted the only reason why Ion became X champion at Destination X was using a can of hairspray. Aries then pulled a poster off the wall and walked off with Ion. Kenny King claimed to be the only one ready. Suddenly, Aries was back in the room. Dutt made his case again, then Aries noted Dakota Darsow hasn't made a case for anything. Aries had enough of Rashard Cameron and told him to walk out the door. Aries said he has two more eliminations to make.
Video package: Chavo Guerrero has arrived in TNA. The video said Chavo debuts next.
Impact Zone: Bellator fighter Ben Saunders was shown sitting ringside. Odd editing for his segment. ... Random music then played to bring out Chavo Guerrero dressed in a suit. The generic TNA themes just kill wrestlers's entrances. Chavo celebrated his arrival with a victory lap around ringside before hitting the ring. In the ring, Chavo waited out a "Chavo" chant as cameramen scrambled in the background. Chavo introduced himself, then TNA cut to a shot of Hector Guerrero at the Spanish announce table. Chavo continued to "sell the moment" before noting the Guerreros have conquered every area and company except for one. He said when he arrived in the TNA locker room, he saw hunger in the eyes of the guys and girls. He said they are hungry to "steal the show" and be the best every night. Chavo said he is here to beat the best. He pointed to the hard camera and told everyone at home to mark their calendars to remember this date. He said it's time. "It's Guerrero time," he said. Chavo said it's time for him to be a champion.
Suddenly, Kid Kash interrupted. Kash, flanked by Gunner, emerged on-stage to mock Chavo. No heat on the heels. Chavo said he's not a wrestling legend, but the people are. That wasn't the case based on the crowd's non-response as Kash continued to ramble about Chavo's wrestling family. Kash then asked Chavo where his family is. Chavo said his family is the fans. Kash said he's not talking about the government-funded jerk-offs. Where did that come from? Kash continued to talk about Chavo's family, wondering his family is.
[Q4] Kash then suggested the Guerrero family members are drunks, which was enough for Chavo to land a right hand strike. Gunner and Kash eventually double-teamed Chavo until Hernandez waddled to the ring to make the save. Hernandez cleared Gunner, then Chavo dropkicked Kash to the outside. Chavo and Hernandez stood tall to conclude the segment.
Backstage: Kurt Angle was shown talking to James Storm. He said he knows Bobby Roode is full of crap, but he wants to make sure there's nothing to Storm being part of A&E. Storm laughed it off and said he has no connection to any of these guys. Angle said he figured as much. But, Storm has their back tonight, right? Angle walked off, then the camera stayed on Storm grimacing while leaning on a traveling trunk.
Somewhere with an Impact backdrop: Al Snow, Bruce Prichard, and Taz were shown sitting on stools. Snow flipped out about Joey Ryan, then yelled into the camera that Joey got his attention tonight. Prichard said he's giving into what Snow wants, then turned their attention to Sam Shaw. A tweet read that he's unpolished. The judges also noted they missed most of Sam's match due to Joey's distraction. More tweets on the screen said Sam didn't look good enough. Taz and Snow then stood up from their podiums and walked around as Prichard remained sitting. A very rushed, unpolished segment that seemed thrown together.
Video package: Claire's allegations against A.J. Styles. ... Announcers: Tenay recapped the BFG Series standings before going to the ring, where Christy Hemme introduced A.J. Styles for a BFG Series match. Tenay said Styles vs. James Storm is up next.
[Commercial Break. TNA cut back live for a moment to show James Storm walking out to his theme music. Storm continued to wince from the fight with Bobby Roode in the opening segment.]
[Q5 -- second hour]
3 -- A.J. STYLES vs. JAMES STORM -- BFG Series match
As Styles and Storm started things off, TNA cut to a shot of Claire sitting on the front row trying her best to do a really, really mad face. Taz tried to avoid mocking her acting skills before the focus returned to the ring. It's also worth noting that "conflict of interest" Earl Hebner has been assigned this match. Styles and Storm continued to trade offense as Taz talked about TNA on-edge with Aces & Eights lurking around the Impact Zone. Styles then got caught up-top and Storm dropped Styles with the Eye of the Storm. Storm made a cover, but Styles kicked out just in-time.
Storm tried to follow with a Tornado DDT, but Styles countered with a release suplex right into the corner turnbuckle. Styles scored a close two count, only. Styles followed with a flying forearm smash from clear across the ring, but Storm kicked out again. Styles then wanted the Clash, but Storm countered with the Alabama Slam. Storm couldn't make an immediate cover, though, allowing Styles to eventually kick out of a pin attempt.
At 9:00, the fight moved to the ring apron, where Storm dropped Styles face-first on the apron. Storm tried to make a pin back in the ring, but Styles kicked out. Earl Hebner could then be hear voicing the amount of time left in the match as the two men reset. Styles hit the Pele kick, but Storm came back with a codebreaker. Storm then warmed up the crowd to deliver the Last Call superkick, but Styles... (Continues on next page)
