The show opens with a video package that highlights feud between Aces & 8′s and TNA. They also focus in on the World Title match as well, with only a bit of focus on the all-cage match theme of the show.
The music starts and Todd Keneley welcomes us to the PPV. He hypes that this is the largest crowd in TNA history. Taz immediately begins hyping Aces and 8′s against TNA before Tenay talks for a bit about Bully Ray and Jeff Hardy. Keneley throws it to the ring for the first match of the night, the X Division Championship Match.
Zema Ion makes his way out to the ring first, to not much of a reaction.
Christian York gets a bit more of a pop out of the crowd, but it dies off pretty quickly.
Kenny King is out last, and the champ gets another lukewarm reaction out of the crowd.
