Highlights

  • Ricky Starks defeated three men in the same night to be crowned the new TV Champion in the main event.
  • Marty Scurll appeared to persuade Nick Aldis to make his match against Flip Gordon a title match, but also had to accept the stipulation of Aldis getting the right to control negotiations if he retained; which he did.
  • Scott Steiner looked set to win the National Championship, but The Question Mark interfered and got Aron Stevens disqualified.
  • Thunder Rosa and Allysin Kay worked the undisputed match of the night.
  • The Rock N’ Roll Express showed respect to Eli Drake & James Storm after losing the tag titles to them.
  • Stu Bennett announced the Crockett Cup would be returning at a ‘bigger’ venue than the GPB Studios; although we weren’t told where or when it would happen.
