    TNA iMPACT!
    August 20th 2004

    This edition of TNA iMPACT! opens up with the announcement that on September 19th, TNA returns to Pay Per View with its first ever three-hour event in the form of Destination X. To commemorate such an event, the Super X Cup is making its return to TNA with the finals taking place at the event. The Super X Cup 2004 will start next week and will be a single elimination eight-man tournament featuring Jerry Lynn, Petey Williams, Kid Kash, Hector Garza, Amazing Red, Sonjay Dutt, Miyamoto and Roderick Strong. The Winner of the Super X Cup will earn himself a future X-Division Championship match.

    In a preview of sorts for the Super X Cup, Kid Kash and Hector Garza get the action under way. This match came about by Kid Kash challenging Garza to a match when Garza wasn’t even in the country. Seeing what was happening, the NWA Championship Committee stepped in and made the match Kash requested without him knowing. Irate that his underhanded tactic didn’t work, Kash jump starts the match by attacking Garza as soon as he enters the ring. Kash spends the majority of the match working the neck of Garza in preparation for the Money Maker but Garza simply won’t stay down. Having recently fully committed himself to TNA, Garza is eager to get off on the right foot and manages to fight back and eventually connect with Tornillo for a hard-fought victory. An irate Kid Kash lashes out after the match and finally connects with the Money Maker before proclaiming that this isn’t over.

    Hector Garza def. Kid Kash in 07:11.

    Last week on TNA iMPACT! former NWA World Champion Ken Shamrock made his return to the company when he attacked Monty Brown only seconds after The Alpha Male defeated Jeff Jarrett. Shamrock viciously attacked Brown until Dallas came to his aid. With neither Dallas or Brown in attendance tonight, Shamrock is free to make his in-ring return against the unfortunate David Young. Jeff Jarrett joins Mike Tenay and Don West on commentary and proudly proclaims that Shamrock is his Insurance Policy while dodging any questions about his loss last week. As expected, the match is anything but competitive as Shamrock easily dominates Young before applying an Ankle Lock for a quick submission victory. A confidant Jarrett announces after the match that last week was a fluke and dares Monty Brown to try and beat Shamrock.

    Ken Shamrock def. David Young in 01:38.

    Current NWA World Champion AJ Styles is next to the ring as he reveals he has an announcement to make in regards Destination X. Styles states that he has been quick to take on any and all challengers ever since reclaiming the NWA World Championship but now he is taking a stand. Styles states that there is one man in the locker room who has earned a one on one title opportunity but has been denied it time and time again. Just as Styles is about to issue the challenge, Ron Killings interrupts and accepts the title match. Styles laughs it off and reminds Killings that he has tried and failed twice now in matches against Styles, and has also tried and failed against the true number one contender. An irate Killings insists he should be the number one contender but instead Styles announces that he will defend the NWA World Championship at Destination X against Jeff Hardy in a one on one match. Killings doesn’t take kindly to the news and cheap shots Styles before running for higher ground.

    In recent weeks Michael Shane has become more and more outspoken in regards his long-time friend and current X-Division Champion, Kazarian. Initially, Shane seemed to be 100% in the corner of Kazarian but in recent weeks his loyalties have been less than clear. Eager to put himself in Championship contention, Shane wastes little time in ambushing the debuting Matt Sydal. Shane brings the fight to Sydal early on but a quick attempt at Sweet Shane Music proves to be a big mistake. Sydal shows some impressive agility to avoid the attack and instantly turn the match around. The high paced offence of Sydal is something that Shane struggles to counter and it leads to Sydal taking to the air with a Shooting Star Press. Unfortunately for the debutant, Shane is able to get his knees up and follow up with Sweet Shane Music for the three-count. After the match, a winded Michael Shane reveals that he is done waiting like Kazarian asked, and issues a challenge to the X-Division Champion to finally become a man of his word.

    Michael Shane def. Matt Sydal in 11:01.

    The main event of iMPACT! this week is six-man tag team action as the NWA World Tag Team Champions, America’s Most Wanted, team up with Jerry Lynn to face Team Canada. Team Canada claim they should not only be the World X Cup Champions, but now should also be the NWA World Tag Team Champions and are blaming Jerry Lynn for both failures despite Lynn only seeking revenge for the actions of Team Canada. As expected, the main event is a fast-paced affair with tags routinely being a suggestion rather than a requirement. Chris Harris manages to his Eric Young with a Spear for a near fall while Bobby Roode almost scores the victory over Jerry Lynn with a Death Valley Driver. James Storm hits Petey Williams with an Eye of the Storm but Eric Young counters that with a Piledriver to Lynn. Needless to say, all six men were on an equal footing with no side gaining a clear advantage as the 15-minute time limit drew closer. With no winner in sight, Johnny Devine takes it upon himself to get involved but Storm blocks the hockey stick shot from the Canadian’s substitute member. Storm knocks Devine off the apron but in doing so leaves himself open to a Northern Lariat from Roode for the three count and the victory over the current NWA World Tag Team Champions.

    Team Canada def. America’s Most Wanted and Jerry Lynn in 13:29.

    TNA iMPACT!
    August 27th 2004


    The Super X Cup makes its return to TNA Wrestling tonight as it will both open and close the show. First up, former X-Division Champion and Team Canada captain Petey Williams goes one on one with Sonjay Dutt. Dutt knows this is the opportunity he has been waiting for and shows he is not willing to stand by and let it slip past him. Dutt hits Williams quick and hard from the get go, often taking needless risks in the pursuit of glory. It was Dutt’s lack of consideration for his own body that proved to be his down fall as a top rope splash came up empty when Williams rolled to safety. Petey Williams isn’t a man who needs an invitation to do some major damage as he quickly breaks into a sprint to catch the winded Dutt with a running Canadian Destroyer for the victory in the opening round. After the match, a clearly annoyed Sonjay Dutt punches the mat before leaving in a huff.

    Petey Williams def. Sonjay Dutt in 07:29 to advance to the semi-finals of the Super X Cup 2004.

    Backstage we find the King of the Mountain Jeff Jarrett as he approaches BG James of the 3 Live Kru. Jarrett does his best to act as friendly as he can, but James isn’t buying it and tells Jarrett to get to the point or leave. Jarrett cuts the nice guy act and rather bluntly tells James he wants him to jump ship and join his army. Jarrett claims people like them need to stick together in such uncertain times but James isn’t buying it. James makes it clear that he would never betray his brothers and hopes to see Jarrett feel the Pounce again in the very near future. Elsewhere, current NWA World Champion AJ Styles is approached by Jeff Hardy. Hardy thanks Styles for being a man of his word and promises to bring his A-Game for Destination X. Styles appreciates the promise and lets Hardy know that next week he will be in action in a Pick Your Poison Warm Up match. The week after, Hardy will get to return the favour. Styles and Hardy continue the good-natured chat with Hardy trying to get Styles to reveal his opponent, but Styles won’t give it up until next week.

    X-Division action follows again as Sonny Siaki returns to the division in an attempt to get his career back on track. Despite being a former X-Division Champion, Siaki has struggled big time in recent months while his opponent, Chris Sabin, has seemingly gotten better and better. Sabin wastes little time in taking the fight to Siaki and its obvious that Siaki is out of practice as he struggles to keep up. In the end, Siaki gets desperate and goes for an eye rake to try and take control but his follow up offence is short lived. Sabin, despite being temporarily blinded is still able to fight back and connect with a Cradle Shock for the three count. After the match, Sabin is quick to try and counter the challenge made last week by Michael Shane. Sabin states that he should be the number one contender and challenges Kazarian for Destination X. Before Sabin can finish making his case, Alex Shelley and Abyss attack the Detroit native from behind. Siaki seems to consider making the save but instead walks away and lets Abyss hit a Black Hole Slam on Sabin, leaving Shelley unopposed in issuing a third challenge to X-Division Kazarian for Destination X, leaving the fighting champion with a lot to think about and not a lot of time.

    Chris Sabin def. Sonny Siaki in 05:11.

    Backstage we find Dallas as he gets approached by an angry Monty Brown. Brown doesn’t give Dallas a chance to say even a single word before telling the big Texan thanks, but no thanks. Brown tells Dallas that he doesn’t want, nor does he need anybody’s help in dealing with Jeff Jarrett and Ken Shamrock. Dallas surprises many by agreeing but continuing to say that he didn’t do it to help Brown, he did it to help himself. Dallas states that it is in his own best interests for Monty Brown to shatter the glass ceiling and leave the road to the top open for others like himself. Dallas makes sure Brown knows that he isn’t helping him beat Jarrett or Shamrock, he’s only interested in making sure that glass ceiling is gone for good. Brown seems happy enough and nods in understanding before marching off.

    Tag team action follows as the newly Franchised Naturals take on former NWA World Tag Team Champions Triple X. For much of the match it appeared to be a mismatch as Daniels and Skipper seemed to be taking it easy as they were able to dominate the match with a series of quick tags and high impact double team efforts. The longer the continued, the more annoyed and animated Shane Douglas got on the outside as he yells at the Naturals. Surprisingly, the yelling seems to work as Douglas and Stevens manage to turn the match around and take control long enough to connect with the Natural Disaster on Elix Skipper. Daniels however, isn’t going to let the match end that easily and fends off both men. Eventually, Skipper hits Andy Douglas with a Play of the Day to score the victory and send Shane Douglas into a fit of rage on the outside.

    Triple X def. The Naturals w/ Shane Douglas in 08:12.

    Last week on TNA iMPACT! Team Canada scored a huge victory over the NWA World Tag Team Champions in a six-man tag. Eager to follow up on their victory, all four members are led by Scott D’Amore to the office of Vince Russo. D’Amore practically demands a championship opportunity for his troops, a notion Russo has no issues with and grants the request. D’Amore states he wants the match next week, but Russo says he can’t do that, citing the NWA Championship Committee needing to sign off on it first. An angry D’Amore asks Russo who is really in charge around here to which Russo responds by announcing two singles matches for next week instead. Chris Harris vs. Eric Young, and James Storm vs. Bobby Roode. Russo tells Team Canada to win both matches and the NWA Championship Committee will have no choice but to make the match they want.

    The main event this week is the second of four first round matches in the Super X Cup 2004 as two former X-Division Champions do battle. Kid Kash, in a bad mood as always, locks up with Jerry Lynn for his return to the X-Division. Unlike most X-Division matches, this one goes at a far slower pace as both men prefer to keep it on the mat and attempt to outwrestle one another until Kash uses a handful of hair to gain an unfair advantage. Not one to be outdone, Lynn returns the favour with a hair pull and an eye rake of his own, showing he has no issues dropping to Kash’s level. The match speeds up when Kash swings wildly and misses, allowing Lynn to take full advantage and work on the neck of his opponent. Lynn repeatedly tried for the Cradle Piledriver but Kash blocked it at every attempt. After the third failed attempt, Kash even countered and rolled through into a school boy pin. Kash quickly grabs hold on Lynn’s tights with one hand and the bottom rope with the other, ensuring Lynn has no chance of kicking out before the three, sending Kid Kash into the semi-finals.

    Kid Kash def. Jerry Lynn in 12:09 to advance to the semi-finals of the Super X Cup 2004.

    IMPACT REVIEW

    Petey Williams was an obvious choice to progress in the opening match. He's my favourite to win this tournament as the future shot on the line suits him more than anyone else. He needs to be an integral part of the X-Division.

    Little surprised to see Kid Kash beat Jerry Lynn with Lynn being prominent in the World X Cup but I can see that with Kash splitting from Dallas you must have plans for him in the division.

    Very interesting segment between Jarrett and BG James. James turning Jarrett down because he doesn't want to turn his back on his friends. Part of me thinks another member of 3 Live Kru turns but there's also the lingering prospect of Kip James turning up. Also my eyes are on Dallas after his little chat with Monty Brown, could be a big red herring and Dallas ends up joining 'Planet Jarrett'.

    A good win for Chris Sabin over enancement talent Sonny Siaki. Afterwards was well done with Sabin and Shelley both making their intentions towards the X-Division title clear. With it being Destination X I can see Sabin versus Shelley versus Shane versus Kazarian in an Ultimate X match, and I won't complain about that!!!

    Triple X continuing to position themselves well in the tag division. I'm sure they will be in the title mix once AMw/Team Canada finish their feud.

    Speaking of Team Canada, their demands have been half met and I'm keen to see if they can get the double win next week. I think they can be the ones to dethrone Harris & Storm.

    Finally Jeff and AJ Styles are in a friendly rivalry at the moment but I wonder how long that lasts once the title being on the line comes into the equation. Like the idea of Pick Your Poison but haven't a clue who will be chosen. Someone new maybe!!

    Overall God another good show and I'm really looking forward to Destination X.

    TNA iMPACT!
    September 3rd 2004

    TNA iMPACT! opens this week with the Super X Cup as Miyamoto faces the Amazing Red. Kid Kash and Petey Williams already occupy two of the four semi-final places and Red was determined to make himself the third of four to give his career a much-needed boost. In typical Red fashion, he blitzed his opponent from the get go and attempted to overwhelm Miyamoto with a blistering pace. To the surprise of many, Miyamoto managed to not only survive the attack, he thrived. Red attempted to pick up the victory with a Code Red but Miyamoto showed impressive strength by blocking it and instead slamming Red to the mat. With Red stunned, Miyamoto wasted little time hitting a moonsault and making a tight cover to send Red crashing out in a first round upset.

    Miyamoto def. The Amazing Red in 06:34 to advance to the semi-finals of the Super X Cup 2004.

    Backstage we find Dallas as he gets approached by Raven. Raven pulls no punches in berating Dallas for what Raven believes is a pathetic attempt to latch onto the coattails of Monty Brown by coming to his aid recently. Dallas again tries to make his glass ceiling argument but Raven dismisses it and tells Dallas to earn his spot instead of relying on others to do it for him. Elsewhere we find Jeremy Borash with X-Division Champion Kazarian. Kazarian talks about the recent challenges made by Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley and even his best friend Michael Shane. Kazarian admits to telling Shane he could have a shot at his title but never said he would put him above other potential challengers as he didn’t want to play favourites. In an effort to prove that statement, Kazarian announces he has the perfect solution for his current scenario and is just waiting for approval from Director of Authority Vince Russo before he reveals it to the world.

    Speaking of Vince Russo, a series of matches that he made last week take place next as Team Canada face America’s Most Wanted in two singles matches. Russo all but guaranteed a championship match for the Canadian’s should they pick up the victory in both matches. Eric Young and Chris Harris took to the ring first and set the tone for both matches with a hard-hitting affair filled with Canadian interference. Petey Williams, Johnny Devine and Bobby Roode all constantly got involved as James Storm did his best to keep the match to one on one. Harris put his trust in his partner and focused solely on Young, a tactic that looked like it was going to work when he hit a Catatonic. Instead of a three count however, he got a Northern Lariat from Roode as Scott D’Amore kept the attention of the official by trying to enter the ring. With Harris out, Young crawls on top to score the first victory needed for Team Canada.

    Eric Young def. Chris Harris in 08:18.

    Almost as soon as the match ended, Storm and Roode took to the ring and quickly started to exchange blows. Storm took the early advantage but after running the ropes for momentum ended up eating a vicious spine buster from the Canadian Enforcer. Seeing an opening, Roode quickly went to work on the back of Storm and showed no mercy. On the floor, Chris Harris got a measure of revenge by hitting Young with a Spear to take him out of the equation. As a result, Harris ended up getting jumped by both Williams and Devine as the three men brawled on the floor. Seeing the mayhem on the outside, Roode quickly took possession of the Hockey Stick and smashed it across the back of Storm to continue the focused assault. Storm tried his best to fight through the pain but Roode pressed and pressed before picking up the victory with a running power bomb to ensure Team Canada have a strong claim for a World Tag Team Championship match.

    Bobby Roode def. James Storm in 06:58.

    While Team Canada celebrate their suspect victories, another Canadian drew the short straw as Alister Ralphs faces the Alpha Male Monty Brown. Ralphs decided for some reason to try and match power with Brown and despite his size, lived to regret that choice as Brown showed impressive power to easily shove Ralphs backwards across the ring. From then on it was all one-way traffic as Brown seemed to be picturing Ken Shamrock on the receiving end of a running power slam followed by an Alpha Bomb. With Ralphs out on his feet, it was only a matter of seconds before Brown viciously hit the Pounce for the three count in a one sided affair. After the match, Monty Brown gets himself a mic but before he can speak Glenn Gilberti and Johnny Swinger attack. Brown easily disposes of both men but they proved to only be a distraction as Jarrett winded up and dropped Brown with a guitar shot to the head. With Brown defenceless, Shamrock once again applies an Ankle Lock. Unlike the last time though, Dallas doesn’t come to the aid of Brown. This time it’s the 3 Live Kru headed up by BG James. James and Konnan are able to do enough to send Jarrett and his army into retreat, saving the Alpha Male despite him never once asking for help.

    Monty Brown def. Alister Ralphs in 04:11.

    Destination X is only a few weeks away and AJ Styles will defend his NWA World Championship against Jeff Hardy for the first time ever. Before that, both men have agreed to warm up matches against opponents of the other man’s choosing. Jeff Hardy is first to learn his fate as the NWA World Champion announces his opponent as the former partner of Styles and former X-Division Champion, Jerry Lynn. Despite crashing out of the Super X Cup last week at the hands (on both the tights and the ropes) of Kid Kash, Lynn proves to be a very formidable opponent that easily pushes Hardy to his limits. Hardy seemed to have been expecting an easy going match but Lynn gave everything he has, knowing a win would put him into championship contention after Destination X. With Hardy taking the match lightly, Lynn almost secured the victory early on with a victory roll. The near fall seemed to be the wake up slap Hardy needed and he realised Lynn wasn’t just going through the motions like he expected. Hardy would later manage to hit a Twist of Faith but could only get a two count. Time and time again Lynn attempted the Cradle Piledriver but only once managed to get Hardy into the air and even then, Hardy slipped free. Despite having nothing but bragging rights on the line, both men went all out for the victory. Lynn again kicked out of the Twist of Faith but in the end a Swanton Bomb was more than he could handle as Jeff Hardy got the hard fought victory with only a couple of minutes left on the clock. Both Styles and Lynn congratulate an exhausted Hardy after the match with Styles raising the arm of Hardy in victory, knowing he will be getting something similar in the main event next week, as Jeff Hardy gets to pick his opponent.

    Jeff Hardy def. Jerry Lynn in 13:06.

    TNA iMPACT!
    September 10th 2004

    In the second to last show before TNA Wrestling makes its three hour pay per view debut on September 19th at Destination X, TNA iMPACT! opens up with the final first round match in the 2004 Super X Cup. The debuting Roderick Strong goes one on one with Team Mexico captain Hector Garza. Garza unsurprisingly looks to keep the match at a high tempo but Strong has other ideas and wrestles a much more deliberate match as he viciously targets the back of his opponent. The longer the match went on, the more effective the game plan of Strong became as he hit a near endless variety of backbreakers to punish his opponent. Despite the effective strategy, Strong was unable to survive a burst of offence from Garza that ended with the Tornillo for the pin fall victory to send Garza into the final four next week.

    Hector Garza def. Roderick Strong in 07:11 to advance to the Semi Finals of the Super X Cup 2004.

    The Alpha Male Monty Brown is up next on TNA iMPACT! having been very silent as of late. Brown once again proves to be a man of few words as he addresses 3 Live Kru and tells them the very same thing he told Dallas. Thanks, but no thanks. Brown quickly announces that he doesn’t need or want the help of anyone on the roster and believes he needs to do this himself. As such, Brown issues a challenge to Ken Shamrock to man up and face him one on one at Destination X. A fully determined Brown announces that it is officially hunting season in the Serengeti.

    Tag Team action follows as the out of form Amazing Red and Sonjay Dutt team up to try and turn around their fortunes and get some momentum going. Standing in their way is the ever determined and always dangerous duo of Christopher Daniels and Elix Skipper. Daniels in particular has been very outspoken to anyone who will listen about the merits of Triple X being named the number one contenders for Destination X and knows a win tonight is vital to keep that claim alive. Dutt and Red have other ideas and quickly prove to be a natural pairing as the two smaller men are able to bombard Daniels and Skipper with an aerial assault that leaves Triple X on the ropes. Red is able to connect with the Code Red on Skipper but a stiff kick to the face from Daniels proves to be the turning point. The Angel’s Wings soon follows along with the three count as Dutt fails to make the save.

    Triple X def. Amazing Red and Sonjay Dutt in 11:29.

    Backstage we find a tired Hector Garza as he gets approached by an arrogant Kid Kash. Garza quickly goes on the defensive but Kash claims he comes in peace and congratulates Garza on not choking earlier tonight. Kash goes on to reveal that the semi finals of the Super X Cup have just been revealed. Next week it will be Kid Kash vs. Miyamoto and Hector Garza vs. Petey Williams. Kash quickly points out that means a potential re-match from a few weeks ago as the final at Destination X. Garza states he will be more than happy to beat Kash again in order to claim the Super X Cup trophy.

    Another duo looking to be named number one contenders for the NWA World Tag Team Championships are the recently Franchised Naturals of Andy Douglas and Chase Stevens. Under the direction of Shane Douglas, the Naturals have discovered a previously unknown mean streak but are still struggling to put everything together and turn it into success, despite Shane Douglas pulling every string he can find to get them opportunities at the expense of other teams. This politicking explains why The Naturals got the less than impressive duo of Pat Kenney and Sonny Siaki as opponents compared to what Triple X got earlier tonight. As expected, Kenney and Siaki get minimal offence in as the Naturals quickly grow in confidence as they pick apart their more experienced opponents and soon put them out of their misery with a Natural Disaster, the result having never been in doubt.

    The Naturals def. Sonny Siaki and Pat Kenney in 04:03.

    TNA Director of Authority Vince Russo is found backstage next in a very crowded office. He is surrounded by TNA X-Division Champion Kazarian along with NWA World Tag Team Champions America’s Most Wanted. Russo announces to the trio that the NWA Championship Committee has held their final meetings and given him their recommendations for Destination X. Russo first tells us that he is making four matches right here, right now. Firstly, Kazarian’s suggestion has been approved by the NWA and he will defend the X-Division Championship at Destination X against Michael Shane, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley in an Ultimate X match. Secondly, America’s Most Wanted will defend their NWA World Tag Team Championships against Bobby Roode and Eric Young, Team Canada. Triple X and The Naturals meanwhile will compete in a number one contenders match to determine the next challengers. Finally, to celebrate the level of competition in the X-Division, Russo makes a 20 man X-Division invitational gauntlet that will have the honour of kicking off the first ever three hour pay per view event.

    With the Destination X card quickly filling up, it’s time for the main event of TNA iMPACT! and the second of two warm up matches for the NWA World Championship match competitors. Last week AJ Styles chose Jerry Lynn to push Jeff Hardy to the absolute limit. This week, Jeff Hardy throws a curveball at Styles and announces his opponent is the unbeaten Abyss. Having been picked for such a high profile match, suddenly Goldylocks starts paying attention to Abyss again, having practically ignored him since the arrival of Alex Shelley several months ago. Despite the obvious size difference, Styles shows no fear in going toe to toe with the Monster and taking the fight to the big man. Knowing this is a huge opportunity for him, Abyss doesn’t hold back and takes everything Styles throws at him and shrugs it off before hitting a chokeslam. A confidant Jeff Hardy watches from ringside as Abyss soon starts to pick apart Styles, showing he is much more than just an enforcer for Goldylocks. Styles mounts several come back attempts but Abyss is able to cut him off each time and resume the beating as Hardy starts to show concern, worried he may have unleashed a Monster instead of a warm up. Abyss soon attempts a Black Hole Slam but Styles is able to slip free and connect with a Pele Kick to stun the big man. A Flying Forearm follows before Styles hits a Frog Splash to score the victory with Abyss kicking out a second too late. An irate Abyss can’t believe he was kept down just long enough to be beaten and looks to extract some pay back as he assaults Styles after the bell. Hardy quickly comes to the aid of Styles as he does his best to fend off Abyss only for a low blow from Alex Shelley to be the difference maker. Seeing an opening, Abyss quickly pulls Hardy into a Black Hole Slam before being sent to the floor following a running dropkick from Styles. Shelley decides now isn’t the time to fight and quickly bails out, leaving a hurt AJ Styles to check on his opponent following a vicious Black Hole Slam from the unleashed monster that is Abyss.

    AJ Styles def. Abyss in 10:49.

    TNA iMPACT!

    September 17th 2004

    TNA iMPACT! opens this week with eight man tag team action as opponents this Sunday at Destination X are forced to team together tonight in their final warm up matches. Triple X and The Naturals make up one side of the ring while Team Canada and the NWA World Tag Team Champions America’s Most Wanted make up the other side. Despite their obvious dislike of each other, Triple X and The Naturals manage to put their differences aside and work together for the most part. The same cant be said for their opponents. Harris and Storm were willing to do the same but Team Canada were having none of it and refused to even stand on the apron, instead leaving Harris and Storm in a four on two handicap match only two days before their Championship defence. The uneasy alliance of Triple X and The Naturals ended up imploding once both sides realised a pin fall victory over the current Champions was a huge deal. This break down allowed America’s Most Wanted to hit back and almost pull off the upset only to be screwed over by their own partners. Bobby Roode and Eric Young finally got involved in the match but it was only to lay waste to their worn out partners as Harris ended up on the receiving end of a Northern Lariat followed by the Wheelbarrow Neckbreaker. Eager not to miss a golden opportunity, Daniels flew from the top rope and connected with an elbow drop on the prone Harris to score a big victory and ensure that no matter what happens on Sunday, Triple X will be in consideration for a future Championship match. Following the match, Triple X gloat about their victory as Shane Douglas yells at the Naturals for missing the opening presented to them. In the ring, Johnny Devine joins Roode and Young in stomping the beaten Chris Harris until James Storm comes to his aid and tries to fend off all three men. Storm holds his own until Scott D’Amore intervenes with a hockey stick across the spine followed by a Northern Lights Suplex from Roode to leave Team Canada standing tall.

    Super X Cup action follows as the first of two semi finals takes place. Old rivals Hector Garza and Petey Williams get the action under way with a fast paced affair that many expected. The presence of Scott D’Amore at ringside once again seemed to go completely unnoticed by Garza as he kept his focus on the match and hit Williams with everything he had, including an early Tornillo attempt that got him a pair of knees to the chest instead. Williams focused on the ribs from then on but Garza refused to die and kept coming back from everything Williams was throwing at him. On three separate occasions Garza blocked the Canadian Destroyer and looked to have the match in hand as he ascended the ropes again. D’Amore knew his man was in trouble and provided the distraction as Kid Kash came from the other side and picked the ankle of Garza to crotch him on the top rope. Williams followed up with a top rope hurracanrana before hitting the killer blow in the form of a Canadian Destroyer to advance to the finals on Sunday at Destination X.

    As Petey Williams gets his arm raised in victory, Kid Kash backs up the ramp with a smug grin on his face. Before he can escape though, Miyamoto attacks from behind and quickly sends Kash into the ring having decided he isn’t going to wait for an official introduction. Knowing Kash can’t be trusted, Miyamoto wastes little time in targeting the head of his vastly more experienced foe but rarely goes for a pin attempt. Eager to see who he will be facing on Sunday, Petey Williams remains at ringside with Scott D’Amore as Miyamoto appears to easily lose his focus and give Kash time to recover. As expected, this proves to be a big mistake and Kash takes an opening to hit a stiff right hand to the jaw of Miyamoto. Kash follows up with a running elbow smash to stun his opponent before dropping him with the Money Maker for the victory and a spot in the finals of the Super X Cup 2004. After the match, Williams and Kash exchange words until Hector Garza charges back to the ring. Seeing Garza coming, Kash bails and runs for higher ground having both advanced to the finals and avoided having to face the man he has never beaten.

    Backstage we find X-Division Champion Kazarian along with his opponents on Sunday in the Ultimate X match. Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin and Michael Shane. All four men are joined by Director of Authority Vince Russo. Russo explains to all four that the pressure is going to be on their shoulders come Sunday as they have been named the main event of the very first three hour pay per view special in TNA. Russo proclaims it to be an historic night and he expects all four men to prove they deserve to be at the top of the card. All four men are clearly motivated and none of them take their eyes off the prize as Kazarian reluctantly hands over his Championship belt so it can be hung from the X on Sunday night. Elsewhere, Raven once again approaches Dallas but unlike the last time they met, Raven doesn’t call out Dallas for helping Monty Brown. Instead, Raven calls him a coward for not standing up and coming to his aid when needed. An irate Dallas has enough of Raven contradicting himself week after week and tells the veteran to put his money where his mouth is by challenging him to a match on Sunday. Raven shows no emotion and accepts the challenge, stating he will be happy to shatter the glass ceiling and watch the shards cut Dallas to pieces.

    Speaking of Monty Brown, his opponent on Sunday takes to the ring next as Ken Shamrock teams with Jeff Jarrett to face the 3 Live Kru in tag team action. Or at least that’s what the advertised match was. BG James showed up but Konnan was nowhere to be found. With Ron Killings still sulking about being left out of the NWA Championship picture, BG James is forced to go it alone. James managed to hold his own early on but it quickly became obvious he was not going to be able to do it by himself. Rescue looked to be on route to the ring in the form of Monty Brown but the Alpha Male was cut off by Vince Russo. Russo proclaimed that James could only get help from the 3 Live Kru as that is the signed match. Brown argues with Russo until Glenn Gilberti and Johnny Swinger attack. Brown forgets about helping James and turns his attention to his attackers, easily fending them both off and giving chase as they try to retreat. In the ring, BG James manages to secure a life line when he blocks a Figure Four attempt from Jarrett and kicks him into Shamrock, knocking Shamrock off the apron. With James gaining momentum, Ron Killings finally shows up and enters the ring without a tag. Killings and James have a brief stare down before Killings hits Jarrett with an Axe Kick and dives over the ropes to take care of Shamrock. James hits Jarrett with a Pump Handle Slam for the victory having seen his loyalty to his Kru rewarded with the return of Ron Killings in the continued absence of Konnan.

    3 Live Kru def. Jeff Jarrett and Ken Shamrock in 07:11.

    The main event of the evening comes to us as a result of what happened at the end of the show last week where Abyss, with assistance from Alex Shelley, attempted to destroy both Jeff Hardy and the NWA World Champion AJ Styles. Following that, both Hardy and Styles requested a match and Vince Russo made it happen in the form of tag team action. As per usual, Alex Shelley remained on the apron and let Abyss do the bulk of the work for his team. Abyss initially dominated Hardy but struggled once Styles came into play. Styles and Hardy almost instantly gelled and were seemingly able to predict each others actions allowing them to gain a clear advantage on the Monster. Eventually, Alex Shelley decided to lend a hand and even up the odds. Sure enough, tags were soon a suggestion rather than a requirement as all four men came and went freely. Hardy would hit Shelley with a Twist of Faith before Abyss connected with the Shock Treatment. Styles would follow that with a Springboard Forearm only for Shelley to surprise Styles with a Border City Stretch. A hurting Jeff Hardy made a desperation save with a Swanton Bomb to both Shelley and Styles before Abyss ran through Hardy with a vicious shoulder tackle. Abyss attempted a Black Hole Slam on Hardy but Hardy slipped free and flew through the air with a running crossbody. The speed of Hardy was enough to knock Abyss down for Styles to connect with a Frog Splash. Shelley quickly took Styles out of the ring which left an opening for Hardy to hit a second Swanton Bomb and this time get the victory in a hard fought match two days before his NWA World Championship opportunity. After the bell, Shelley complains to Abyss about the loss as AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy go toe to toe inside the ring. Hardy offers a hand which is accepted by Styles but both men know that friendship will be out the window come Sunday night at Destination X.

    AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy def. Abyss and Alex Shelley in 11:09.
