    A New No. 1 Contender Will Be Crowned

    TNA President Dixie Carter stands in the ring with the victorious Team TNA. The rest of the roster surrounds the ring.

    Dixie offers personal thanks to Drew Galloway for leading Team TNA (Drew Galloway, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, Lashley and Bram) to victory against Global Force Wrestling. Galloway says he never intended to be a leader, for he views everyone in and supporting TNA as equal. He adds that when TNA calls upon its warriors, they will always “Stand Up.”

    As a reward for their victory, Dixie announces a No. 1 Contender’s match to determine who will challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship at Bound For Glory.

    Dixie thanks the rest of the roster and says the company has never been closer, but that one man doesn’t fit in any longer – she calls out Eric Young. Young mocks Dixie’s threat of punishment, saying he has an ironclad contract. He says he’s immune to whatever punishment she may have had in store.

    Dixie concedes, but says she may not be able to – but the TNA roster, especially Chris Melendez can. “The Sarge” climbs into the ring as Dixie announces a lumberjack match to kick off the show.

    Lumberjack Match | Eric Young vs. Chris Melendez


    The TNA roster cheers on Chris Melendez as Eric Young tosses him to the outside. Melendez flies back into the ring, connecting with a sunset flip. Young is out at two and quickly in control.

    The Impact Zone rallies behind Melendez as Young’s domination continues. “The Sarge” fails to score any offense in the following moments, which culminate with a hard knee to the face. As Melendez begins gaining momentum, Young pulls Earl Hebner in front of him. Melendez stops and Young drills him with the prosthetic leg as he turns.

    Eric Young positions Melendez for a piledriver, but opts instead for a turnbuckle assault. Melendez battles out and connects with a missile dropkick and three-count!

    Result: Chris Melendez def. Eric Young (via pinfall)

    Backstage: Ethan Carter threatens to fire Jeff Hardy.

    The End of a Revolution

    James Storm, Manik and Abyss are front and center. Storm says over the previous weeks, he’s lost faith in a lot of things, including people who can’t get the job done (he looks to Manik) and people who’ve failed him (he looks to Abyss).

    Abyss resists Storm, claiming to be a TNA original, responsible for helping to build TNA from the ground up. He says he created “The Monster” and that he’ll no longer stand in another man’s shadow. Abyss quits The Revolution.

    Storm dismisses Abyss and turns to address “Khoya.” Manik interrupts, contesting the name Khoya. Storm repeatedly shoves Manik to the ground. Manik resists and then removes his mask before leaving the ring. Mahabali Shera enters the Impact Zone with a challenge for Storm; Storm retreats.

    Firing Jeff Hardy


    Ethan Carter begins with, “I am not a villain…”

    Carter invites Jeff Hardy to the ring – for one last chance. Hardy answers the call and climbs into the ring, inviting Carter to fire him. Carter warns that he can take it all away.

    Carter instructs Hardy to drop to his knees, beg for his job and to kiss the TNA World Title as if it were a king’s ring. Hardy drops to one knee and says, “You can’t fire me because I quit! You can take this job and shove it – I ain’t working here no more!”

    Ethan Carter screams, “You’re fired! You’re fired, Jeff! Camera, look at me – this show is over!” Impact goes dark.
