Lethal goes for the Lethal Combination but Hardy fights it off and hits the Twist of Fate and the Swanton Bomb to get the win.
Winner – Jeff Hardy
When we get back from another commercial, Ric Flair is joined in the ring by AJ Styles and Kazarian. He says AJ is the face of TNA and Kazarian is a star, and that they are the first two members of Fourtune. He continues to put them over as Desmond Wolfe comes out and interrupts, and he says the English don’t get any respect from Americans. He says he should be getting all the credit and he should be in Fourtune after he helped them at Victory Road. Wolfe argues with Flair and Flair tells him not to touch him, and they all bail from the ring when Abyss comes out to the ring.
Abyss starts yelling for RVD and tells him to come to him, and RVD’s music hits and he comes out to the ramp. Abyss tells him to hold on, and he puts Janice down in the corner before RVD gets in. Abyss says it is time for him to share "their" plans with him, and says "they" are coming to TNA soon. He says "they" will take TNA over, and there is nothing him, Dixie Carter, or any of the sheep can do about it. He says he was instructed to get the TNA title off of RVD, and he has a plan. Abyss says they will hang Janice above the ring, and they will have the most extreme match TNA has ever seen. He says Janice says she wants a piece of his ass, and he says the only thing left is when and where, but they will get extreme.
RVD says he knows what the belt means, and he won’t try to take it personally. He says it is his belt, and he loves being champion because of the challenges, and punches Abyss in the face. He dropkicks Abyss and hits a spin kick and some corner punches, but misses a monkey flip and Abyss chokeslams him then goes to pick up Janice. Mick Foley appears on the ramp and Abyss can’t believe it, then the ECW guys hit the ring and start beating the hell out of Abyss. Security runs out but they get taken out quickly and then some of the TNA roster comes out and also gets tossed from the ring. Brian Kendrick and Desmond Wolfe come out, and then D’Lo Brown, Pat Kenney, Al Snow and Terry Taylor come out, and they all get beaten up. Matt Morgan and Eric Young come out and the ring is a war zone as everyone is fighting against each other, and Brother Devon joins the fight. Jeff Jarrett comes out to try and control things but people are still fighting everywhere. Police officers get in the ring and try to break it up as Dixie Carter screams at them to stop, because she invited them. Everyone looks suprised, including Jarrett, as police and security work to restrain everyone as Impact goes off the air.
