    July 31, 2014

    Welcome to Destination X, emanating from New York City!

    TNA President Dixie Carter appears to start the show. She’s accompanied by EC3, Rockstar Spud, Rhino and the two mystery men who appeared last week, Ryklon and Snitsky.

    She says she makes the rules for the game – and every time the fans think they have it figured out, she changes the rules. Dixie says it’s okay for the fans to keep chanting “ECW,” but she wants them to know that the stars of ECW left and that the little company died. She says she’s given fans something better – a real star: EC3.

    EC3 introduces his “Army of Extreme,” Ryklon, Snitsky and Rhino. EC3 challenges Tommy Dreamer and Team 3D to settle the war once and for all – and that when it’s done, his team will rebuild the “House the Carters built.”


    MATCH #1:

    Tag Team Championships

    The Wolves (c) vs. The Hardy Boys

    After the bell, Eddie Edwards and Matt Hardy lock up in the center of the ring as the crowd alternates between chants “Let’s go Hardys” and “Let’s go Wolves!” Edwards and Hardy make quick tags, bringing in Jeff Hardy and Davey Richards.

    Jeff mounts enough offense to gain control of the match, then he and Matt exchange rapid tags and double team maneuvers. Matt maintains control over Davey while the crowd wildly chants for Eddie.

    Davey Richards explodes from the corner with a clothesline to Jeff and makes the hot tag to Eddie Edwards, who bursts into the ring and takes out both Hardys. Eddie sends Matt and Jeff to the outside with a double hurricanrana, and then The Wolves fly through the ropes to ground their challengers.

    Jeff is rolled into the ring and The Wolves execute a series of double team assaults – good for a near-fall. Matt attacks The Wolves from behind as they attempt another double team attack, tossing both from the ring. Jeff Hardy flies over the top rope!

    Matt drops Eddie with a Side Effect and Jeff nails the Swanton! Davey Richards breaks up the count and throws Jeff from the ring. Matt tosses Davey out and nails Eddie with a moonsault! 1-2-Davey just breaks the count!

    Matt and Jeff lock in double submissions. As The Hardys near a tap-out victory, Davey causes Jeff to fall backwards, inadvertently breaking both holds. The Wolves fight back ferociously, but Matt nails Davey with a Twist of Fate and goes for the cover – Davey kicks out just before the three!

    A surprised Matt hoists Davey to the top rope and attempts a suplex, but Eddie Edwards hits Matt with a jumping kick, setting up the double team maneuver that puts the exclamation point on the match.

    Winners: The Wolves

    After the match, The Wolves and The Hardy Boys shake hands as the crowd chants “That was awesome!”

    MATCH #2:

    X-Division Qualifier

    DJ Z vs. Manik vs. Low Ki

    The crowd is wild for Low Ki who immediately attacks DJ Z, sending him from the ring. Low Ki and Manik are evenly matched as they fly all around. DJ Z drops both with a springboard double drop-kick.

    DJ Z and Low Ki trade blows until Manik breaks them apart and hits Low Ki with an uppercut. Manik sends DJ Z flying with a headscissor takedown and locks in a hanging octopus submission.

    Manik and Low Ki double team DJ Z, then Low Ki attempts to kick Manik, who counters with a northern lights suplex. The pace quickens as Low Ki sends DJ Z flying from the top rope to the outside. Manik is able to mount some offense, but the Ki Krusher seals the deal and the pin for the win.

    Winner: Low Ki

    MATCH #3

    X-Division Qualifier

    Sanada vs. Brian Cage vs. Crazy Steve

    Brian Cage dominates Crazy Steve and Sanada as soon as the bell has sounded. Sanada tries fighting back but he’s powered down with ease by Brian Cage. Cage tosses both men across the ring.

    Cage throws Sanada over the top rope and attempts a high vertical suplex on Crazy Steve. Steve reverses and drops Brian Cage with a rolling powerbomb. Sanada breaks up the count. Steve fights off Sanada but is met by the raw power of Brian Cage, who misses a moonsault attempt.

    EC3 enters the arena and says the war will take place – “on Carter time” – next week.

    MATCH #4:

    X-Division Qualifier

    Samoa Joe vs. Tigre Uno vs. Homicide

    Homicide gains a very early advantage by sending both Tigre Uno and Samoa Joe out of the ring. Homicide launches himself and sends his competitors’ bodies crashing back to the floor.

    When the action returns to the ring, Tigre Uno flies from the top rope and takes out Samoa Joe and Homicide with a double dropkick. Homicide and Joe double team Tigre Uno and temporarily eliminate him from the equation. Joe and Homicide trade kicks and the advantage.

    After gaining the full advantage and dragging Homicide to the center of the ring, Samoa Joe is met with a dropkick to the face by Tigre Uno. Tigre Uno leaps from the top turnbuckle and crashes down on Homicide.

    Joe disposes of Tigre Uno and sets Homicide on top of the turnbuckle. Homicide thwarts Joe’s attempted muscle buster – and Tigre Uno rushes back into the ring. While attempting to send Homicide crashing down, he’s distracted by Samoa Joe. Tigre Uno leaps toward Joe, but misses and allows Joe to drop Homicide with a muscle buster for the win.
