Tonight is special because tonight Immortal is going to take care of the distraction that Fortune has become. He says Fortune made the mistake of getting involved in Immortal’s business, and that ends tonight.

Three-way Match for the TNA Championship
- Sting (c) vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Mr. Anderson
We get a video package to highlight the events leading into this match, including both of the challengers whining about how they don’t get enough title opportunities.
Rob Van Dam is the first man out to the ring, and he gets a lot of love from this crowd.
Mr. Anderson is the next competitor to the ring, to a big pop, and of course he stops at the top of the ramp to call down his mic. He asks if there are any a-holes in the building, and he gets a lot of cheers in response. He asks the question again and gets an even louder response this time around. He says he’s here, and then lets the crowd know he’s from Green Bay, WI. Then he lets the crowd know his name (twice) before letting go of the mic and making his way to the ring.
The Champion is the last man to make his way to the ring, and he comes out with title in hand to a great response from the crowd. It’ll be interesting to see who plays the heel in this match.
The bell rings and Anderson talks trash to both men, leading to both hitting him with a series of right hands. RVD slams Anderson’s head into the turnbuckle, then Sting down the same. RVD catches Anderson with a kick to the face, so Sting hits a Stinger splash and goes for the Deathlock, but RVD hits a back kick to prevent the submission. RVD sends Sting across the ring and buries his shoulder in Sting’s midsection before connecting with a big kick, a face buster, then a standing moonsault which is good for two. RVD goes into the ropes but Anderson pulls down the ropes and RVD goes in awkwardly. Sting is able to almost get Anderon into the deathlock again, and this time he stops RVD from interfering. Sting locks in the Scorpion Deathlock on both RVD and Anderson at the same time, and Tenay comments how he’s never seen it before (cough Natalya). Sting is forced to drop the hold.
Anderson is able to take Sting down and he tries for a pin, but he’s only able to get two. He tries for his luck on RVD, but again gets two. Anderson hits clotheslines on Sting and RVD before hitting a back elbow on Sting and a neckbreaker on RVD. Anderson goes for the mic check, and he’s actually able to hit it on Sting and RVD at the same time. He goes for the pin on both but he can’t get a three count. He tries for another pin on both, but still can’t get three. All three men are slow to get back to their feet, and when they do Anderson pounds on RVD in the corner before sending him across the ring. Van Dam comes back with a springboard single leg dropkick and a five star frog splash on Anderson. String brakes up the cover, and Anderson catches RVD with a kick to the face. Sting is able to catch RVD with a death drop, while Anderson connects with a big clothesline.
Hogan’s music hits and he makes his way down to the ring with a steel pipe in hand. He tries to hand it to Van Dam, and after a bit of waiting, he takes it from Hogan. Hogan urges him to use it to knock his opponents out, but RVD tosses the pipe away. Anderson picks up the pipe and whacks RVD, saying it wasn’t for Hogan, it was for himself. Sting hits Anderson with the Scorpion Death Drop, and he pins him, getting the three count.
Winner and STILL TNA World Champion: Sting
After the match, Sting calls out Hogan, asking him to get back into the ring, but Hogan points toward his watch, saying they’ll do it on his time.

He ducks a clothesline from Hardy and Hardy connects with Abyss only to eat a backstabber from Storm. Storm stares down Flair, and Flair begs off, but Storm smashes his beer bottle on Flair’s head, causing the blood to pour.
Storm is just taking it to Flair and Fourtune has turned things around. Storm has ripped off Flair’s wife beater, and some of his pants. Storm pulls down Flair’s boxers, and Bully Ray is in, taking it to all the members of Fortune, and turning the tide in favor of his team. This are basically just a brawl with the members of Immortal punching and kicking away at Fortune while Robert Roode simmers away on the outside.
Storm punches Storm’s forehear and Hardy chokes Daniels in the corner. Roode enters in the cage, and the roof will be lowered soon, starting the true Lethal Lockdown match. Roode takes out Abyss and Hardy before being stopped by a series of Flair chops, but Roode turns it around and chops Flair a few times himself before connecting with a big back body drop. Beer Money connect with a double suplex and the lights hit and the cage top with weapons begins to lower into place.
