Just in case you care, it looks like they duct taped a new piece of canvas over where Abyss broke the ring earlier.
MVP starts things out for his team against Austin Aries. MVP with a suplex followed by a kip up – clearly still in good shape, maybe better. He locks in a side headscissors but Aries rolls through, jumping out of the hold and dropkicking MVP. The clock counts down and Robbie E gives his team the first advantage of this match.
The heels put the boots to MVP for several minutes until Eddie Edwards evens the odds. He hits the ring and slaps the hell out of Robbie E, before hitting Aries with an inverted suplex. DJ Zema Ion tries to climb the cage, but Edwards tosses Robbie into him and knocks him to the floor on the outside. MVP has a blatant choke on Bobby Roode, but I guess in this match there's no referee, so no ropebreak.
Jessie Godderz is next up to give Team Dixie the advantage again. As the fresh man he dropkicks MVP and Eddie, and now the heels are back firmly in control. The beatdown continues for several minutes until Davey Richards hits the ring. The Wolves go crazy on the BroMans with chops and kicks in the corner. There's a pretty loud "f**k em up Davey" chant.
Bobby Roode is the 7th man to hit the ring, and he comes face-to-face with MVP. They stare each other down before coming to blows, swinging wildly with rights and lefts. It's a crazy brawl for several minutes until the clock counts down from ten. The lights go out and when they come back on, Willow is standing on top of the steel cage. He leaps off the cage and takes all four of the heels down, as the cover to the cage is slowly lowered.
Just as the match is about to get good, Dixie Carter comes out and announces her special guest referee… Bully Ray!
Bully Ray pulls out a table from under the ring and throws it through the cage door. The heels now have all the weapons and are completely destroying Team MVP. This continues on for a few minutes, although it feels like forever. Hardy shoots Robbie E into the steel cage, and MVP rocks Bobby Roode with a trash can off the skull. The Wolves hit their assisted kick on Jessie and grab the last remaining weapons off the top of the cage.
Shades of Shane McMahon, the Wolves put Robbie E in the corner, placing a trash can in his face, and hitting Coast-to-Coast from two corners of the ring. A "this is awesome" chant from a few fans. Austin Aries catches Davey with a Brainbuster through a steel chair, and Willow breaks up the pin at the last minute. Willow hits a Twist of Fate on Aries and nails him with the Swanton Bomb. He counts 1…2…Roode breaks up the pin at…4 and a half? Ish?
Roode hoists up MVP and looks to put him through a table, but Bully Ray gets in his face. Roode shoves Bully, and Bully hits him with a massive S-T-O. MVP comes out of nowhere with a boot through Bobby Roode's face, and Bully counts the 1-2-3.
Winners: MVP, The Wolves & Willow
So MVP now has total control of "wrestling operations" in TNA Wrestling.
Team MVP walks up the ramp and shoves their big win in the face of Dixie Carter. Bully Ray sets up Bobby Roode for a powerbomb and puts him straight through a table. Bully Ray stands tall over all of Team Dixie as Lockdown goes off the air.
