5 -- KURT ANGLE vs. BULLY RAY -- BFG Series match
Angle and Ray felt each other out early on as the announcers discussed the upcoming BFG Series schedule. Ray then caught Angle off the ropes and set him up for a piledriver. Angle sold a neck injury as the announcers gasped. Ray tried a cover, but Angle reached the ropes to avoid a pin attempt. Angle then rolled out of the ring selling his neck.
[Commercial Break. TNA cut back for ten seconds of action with Ray scoring a nearfall on a neckbreaker.]
Back live, Angle made a comeback, then tried a suplex, but Ray hit a Bubba Bomb for a two count. Ray tried to follow with a uranage, but Angle countered with a German Suplex. And, a second. Angle wanted a third, and he connected. Angle then dropped the straps and slapped on the Anklelock center-ring, which Ray escaped out of. Angle and Ray then started trading bombs and slaps before Ray delivered a uranage for a close two count. Of note, Ray had a small blood spot on his cheek following the sequence.
Angle and Ray reset before Angle ducked a clothesline and hit the Angle Slam for a two count. Angle then slowly climbed up top backwards and wanted a top-rope moonsault, but Bully moved just in time. Bully then hit a big boot for a close nearfall. Bully tried another power move, but Angle ducked again and hit the Angle Slam for the pin and the win.
WINNER: Angle at 11:55; Angle gets 7 BFG Series points. Solid, physical match-up to close the in-ring portion of the show.
Post-match: Aces & Eights immediately hit the ring to attack Angle. After they delivered a beat down on Angle, A.J. Styles, Sting, and Austin Aries hit the ring to fight A&E. Suddenly, James Storm's music played to bring out Storm. Storm hit the ring and A&E bailed from the ring, with Storm not getting his hands on the group. Storm, Sting, Angle, Styles, and Aries remained in the ring as A&E fled. Angle then began questioning Storm on why he was late to arrive to make the save. Tenay announced he was just informed of Angle vs. Storm on next week's Impact as Storm and Angle argued in the ring. How could the match have just been booked if interim GM Sting was in the ring? Who is Sting's assistant?! Is the assistant in cahoots with Aces & Eights?! Tenay signed off with Aries getting in the middle of the Storm-Angle dispute to close the show.
