Street Fight w/ Special Enforcer King Mo
Roode tries to take the early advantage, but Storm flies off the handle with right after left, and takes down Roode with a flying forearm. Off the Irish Whip Roode eats a big back body drop, and they head out to floor for the first time. Storm plants a knee to head of his opponent, and starts bouncing Roode's head off anything around the ring. Eventually, after about a minute of treating Roode like a human pinball on the outside, Storm picks him up and signals for Eye of the Storm through the brand new, glass announce table. Roode manages to wiggle out of it though, and slingshots Storm headfirst into the ring post.
The two roll back into the ring, and Storm has blood running down his face. Roode throws half a dozen weapons into the ring including a trash can, a few kindo sticks and a steel chair. Storm manages to compose himself though, and goes to town on Bobby Roode with shot after shot! Storm plants Roode witha DDT onto the ramp, before taking the crutch of a fan and swinging for the fences! Storm grabs a trash can lid and delivers what had to be a dozen shots to the head, before taking the can itself and smashing Roode square in the skull.
Storm backs up and gets a running start with the trash can, but Roode manages to hit his signature spinebuster, right onto the ramp. Both men are down and Storm's blood is everywhere, as the fans start with a "this is awesome" chant. King Mo looks visably disturbed by these two destroying each other. Eventually the two crawl back to the glass broadcast table, and make their way on top. Storm attempts to put Roode through the table, but he backs off and Roode spears them both off the table and through another set up next to it! "Holy shit" echoes around the arena!
The two roll back into the ring, and Roode covers Storm: 1…2… NO! Roode gets in Hebner's face, but King Mo gets involved and Roode ends up turning right into Codebreaker! Storm "tunes up the band" and hits the Last Call Superkick, makes the cover…but Roode kicks out in one of the closest near-falls I've seen! Fans are going crazy, and Tenay can barely contain itself. Storm prepares for a second kick, but Roode moves out of the way and sends Storm headfirst into a steel chair! Roode with the roll-up, but Storm somehow kicks out!
Roode brings Storm up to the top rope, and lashes out with shot after shot from a steel chair! Roode reveals a bag, and dumps thumb tacks all over the ring! He goes back up to meet Storm, and tries for Superplex, but STorm headbutts him until Roode goes crashing through the tacks! Storm throws caution to the wind and hits the elbow drop right through Roode and the tacks! 1…2…another kick out! Storm knows what he has to do, and grabs the beer from outside the ring. He drinks a bottle, and smashes it over his former partner's skull, before hitting the Last Call Superkick for the win in one hell of a match.
Winner by pinfall: James Storm
