Below are the results for last night's Guerra De Titanes Pay Per View featuring a number of TNA Wrestlers.
- Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Psycho Clown defeated Gunner, The Pope D'Angelo Dinero and Chessman. Murder Clown got the win for the clowns when he pinned the Pope.
-El (Judas) Mesias defeated AJ Styles for the number one contenders spot for the AAA title: Long 20 minute match with some good spots. At the end Mesias hit a backcracker on styles and then hit a splash from the top rope for the pin. Dorian Roldan and Konnan came out and swerved everyone telling Mesias that he had to face another TNA Wrestler tonight in order to get a title shot. Out comes Rob Terry.
-El (Judas) Mesias defeated Rob Terry for the number one contenders spot for the AAA title: Terry comes to the ring with a chair but never uses it. Terry controls most of the match with mesias stretched out on the second rope and Terry beating on Mesias. Terry gets the chair and begins to set it up in another corner. Mesias recovers and uses the chair setup on Terry for the win.
Following the match The Pope and Gunner come out and attack Mesias. AAA wrestlers Ozz and Cuervo come out from the back to help Mesias but are quickly beaten down by TNA wrestlers. Vampiro returns to AAA helping Mesias, Ozz and Cuervo. Following the save he cuts a promo apologizing for his past run as a heel and takes jabs on Konnan, La Sociedad, TNA and even CMLL.
WWE Champion CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz will square off in a Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match with the WWE Title on the line. Only one man can leave a winner when the current and two former WWE Champions meet in the first-ever Triple Threat TLC Match for the WWE Championship at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, live on pay-per-view Sunday, Dec. 18.
Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis announced this high-octane match where the Superstars will use tables, ladders and chairs as weapons and as tools to reach the WWE Title, which will be suspended some 20 feet in the air over the ring. Dangerous, harrowing and thrilling, TLC matches push competitors to the limit physically and mentally as they battle at dizzying heights in their quest for squared circle immortality.
The Miz and Del Rio had to defeat two SmackDown Superstars - Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, respectively - on Raw Supershow to earn their spots in the WWE TLC Match. While John Cena was named as another participant, he gave up his chance at the WWE Title to give his friend, Zack Ryder, an opportunity to earn a U.S. Title Match against Dolph Ziggler.
Since CM Punk won the WWE Championship from Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series (PHOTOS), The Mexican Aristocrat has been pining for an opportunity to get the title back. Although he was unsuccessful in his first bid to recapture the WWE Championship, Del Rio can look forward to another crack at The Second City Savior, along with another dangerous former champion.
The Miz, the third competitor in the Triple Threat Match, is flying solo after separating from tag team partner R-Truth. After The Rock and John Cena defeated The “Awesome Truth” at Survivor Series, the Cenation leader confronted The Miz and R-Truth. He played mind games on the underhanded pair, culminating in them turning on each other and Miz blasting Truth with a brutal Skull Crushing Finale on the steel entrance ramp. (PHOTOS)
A loner again, The Awesome One looks to regain the WWE Championship and then get revenge on Cena. Not one to be limited to one rivalry, The Miz attacked CM Punk. Having to defend himself from Del Rio and The Miz, Punk must feel like he’s being assailed on all sides; and that includes certain WWE management.
John Laurinaitis has been having difficulties with the title holder. “The Voice of the Voiceless” has already promised change and overhaul as he continues his second reign as WWE Champion (PHOTOS). This does not appear to sit very well with the Interim GM, who is unable to even say "CM Punk" and "WWE Champion" in the same sentence. Laurinaitis placing Punk in such a difficult and grueling match is certainly a questionable decision.
All bets are off when WWE Champion CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz step into the ring for a Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match on Dec. 18. No matter which Superstar is victorious, the WWE Universe will see exciting, high-flying action.
World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry vs. Big Show (Chairs Match)
At WWE TLC, World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry will once again lock horns with Big Show in a World Title slug fest of gigantic proportions.
On Dec. 8, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long revealed to WWE.com that the two titans will collide in a Chairs Match.
The fuse for the colossal competitors' explosive showdown was lit at WWE Money in the Bank, when Henry sent The World's Largest Athlete to his infamous Hall of Pain – trapping his giant adversary's leg inside a chair before dropping down onto it from the ropes. (PHOTOS)
A rage-filled Big Show returned from injury with retribution on his mind, igniting a World Heavyweight Title battle between the two goliath Superstars at Vengeance that literally could not be contained. When Henry suplexed Big Show off the top rope, the shock waves made the ring collapse beneath them. Though the earth-shattering impact made history, the WWE Universe was denied a clear victor in the mega clash of the titans. (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Their brutal rematch at Survivor Series would prove just as intense and just as inconclusive. Though the ring was reinforced, the bitter collision between the two larger-than-life grapplers could not be so easily controlled. After Henry got himself intentionally disqualified and failed to once again induct his giant foe into the Hall of Pain – The World’s Largest Athlete turned the tables – injuring Henry to such an extent that the World Heavyweight Champion would not walk out of the arena. (PHOTOS)
Despite his injury, Henry overcame Mr. Money in the Bank Daniel Bryan in a Steel Cage Match on a special live edition of SmackDown – clearing the road for the monumental third act of this World Title trilogy of pain between Henry and his humongous No. 1 contender.
On the Dec. 9 edition of SmackDown, things came to a head between the two massive foes when Henry sucker punched Show. In retaliation, The World’s Largest Athlete delivered a hellacious beating with a steel chair (WATCH).
Triple H vs. Kevin Nash (Sledgehammer Ladder Match)
There was a time when Triple H and Kevin Nash were the best of friends: two Superstars bound by mutual respect unsullied by ego, money, or bad blood of any kind. They fought and bled together, slowly rising through the ranks of WWE. And yes, they would occasionally square off, but there was never a doubt that their differences would pass. They were, after all, friends.
This is not that time, and when Triple H and Nash face off in a Sledgehammer Ladder Match, with The Game's signature weapon up for grabs above their heads, it will be as enemies, not friends. The ring warrior who retrieves the weapon is free to use it against their enemy without any ramifications until there is a winner.
Nash tossed his friendship with The Game out the window months ago, after he returned at SummerSlam and, allegedly on Triple H's orders, drilled WWE Champion CM Punk into the canvas following Punk's championship match against John Cena, allowing Alberto Del Rio to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, claiming Punk's title for himself.
We now know this wasn't Triple H's idea, that Nash returned of his own volition to make an example of Superstars who he believed were disrespecting him. What Nash wanted all along was to renew his dominance in WWE, and expected Triple H - his friend - to stand aside and allow it.
This didn't happen, of course, and The Game, in his position of Chief Operating Officer and at the cost of their fraying friendship, was forced to fire Nash for insubordination only weeks after his return. (PHOTOS) It didn't stop Nash, who returned again in September, nearly costing Triple H his COO position at Night of Champions and prompting a mass walkout of WWE Superstars, who claimed a vote of no confidence in Triple H's leadership as a result of Nash's unpredictable appearances. When Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis was promoted to Interim Raw General Manager, Nash was hired back and made his presence felt against his former friend, attacking Triple H at Vengeance and, the next night on Raw, taking The Game out of action with his own sledgehammer. (WATCH)
Things have been quiet since then. But now, Triple H is back. The match is made, the stage is set, and the friendship is a thing of the past. And at WWE TLC, with the sledgehammer hanging above and ladders at their disposal, these former friends will settle their score, once and for all.
Who will prevail? Find out at WWE TLC, Sunday Dec. 18, at 8 ET/5PT, only on pay-per-view.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes vs. Booker T
For weeks, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and Booker T have been at odds with each other, exchanging heated words and a series of ambush attacks.
At WWE TLC, it’s put up or shut up time for both Superstars, who are embroiled in one of the most emotional wars right now in WWE. Losing this match would be a tough pill to swallow for either verbose Superstars. For the winner, it could very well direct the course of his future in WWE.
For Rhodes – who is seeking his first singles World Championship – a victory over a veteran like Booker could be just the thing he’s looking for to help catapult his career to the next level.
Things finally came to a head between the two Superstars on the Dec. 9 edition of SmackDown, when Rhodes attacked Booker as he entered the arena. Later that night, Booker retaliated by assaulting the Intercontinental Champion during his match with Daniel Bryan (WATCH). Realizing a match between the two was necessary sooner rather than later, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long announced the two would do battle at WWE TLC.
Looking beyond WWE TLC, Booker said "If I win the title, I will defend it," during commentary on the Dec. 16 edition of SmackDown.
After not competing for so long, does Booker have what it takes to win in the ring? Can Rhodes score a victory against such a formidable veteran? Find out at WWE TLC, Sunday Dec. 18 at 8 ET/5 PT, only on pay-per-view.
United States Champion Dolph Ziggler vs. Zack Ryder
Will Zack Ryder finally get a United States Championship Match against Dolph Ziggler? Woo Woo Woo! You know it!
At WWE TLC: Tables Ladders and Chairs, the self proclaimed Internet Champion will finally have an opportunity to win his first recognized WWE singles title, thanks to his No. 1 Broski, John Cena.
On the Dec. 5 edition of Raw SuperShow, Cena selflessly agreed to Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim Raw General Manager, John Laurinaitis’ stipulation that The Cenation Commander-in-Chief forego a WWE Championship Match himself in order for Long Island Iced-Z to get one last opportunity to earn a United States title bout. All Ryder needed to do was defeat Mr. Laurinaitis’ handpicked opponent, The World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry in a match with no disqualifications and no count-outs! The overwhelming expectation of the WWE Universe was that the Twitter-trending leader of the” Zack Pack” was going to be the next inductee into The World Strongest Man’s “Hall of Pain.”
When all hope seemed lost and Ryder’s title-free match pinfall victory over Ziggler and almost 25,000 twitition signatures seemed moot, Cena charged the ring, took advantage of the fact that there were no disqualifications and assured that Ryder won the contest. In doing so, Ryder finally won the opportunity to challenge Dolph for the United States Championship.
Will Zack make the most of this opportunity he’s worked so hard for and be able hang the United States Title next to his Christmas stocking and headband? Not if the longest reigning champion in WWE stays true to form. Over the last few months, Ziggler’s win-loss record in title-free matches has been less than stellar but he’s continuously found a way to win when it really counts, in title matches. Dolph has also had two matches on the last two WWE pay-per-view events. At TLC, he’ll be completely focused on deleting the Internet Champion from title contention once and for all.
Can Zack show up the showoff and win the vaunted United States Championship? We’ll find out at WWE TLC on Dec. 18, live on pay-per-view.
Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett (Tables Match)
Viper is defined as any snake belonging to the family Viperidae, characterized by protruding venom-conducting fangs.
Most men would steer clear of such a malevolent creature but Wade Barrett has proven himself to be bolder than most men. Since winning WWE NXT’s inaugural season, Barrett has managed to work his way up WWE’s food chain, first as the leader of The Nexus, then as founder of The Corre and now as the one man “Barrett Barrage.” The former bare-knuckled fighting champion is looking to knock off Randy Orton as WWE’s “Apex Predator.”
In Liverpool, England, on SmackDown, Barrett managed to escape the RKO and used a thumb to Orton’s eye to steal a victory. If that weren’t enough, Team Barrett outlasted Team Orton at Survivor Series when Barrett pinned The Viper with the help of his fellow survivor, Intercontinental Champion, Cody Rhodes. (PHOTOS)
Since then, the British grappler has been stalking Orton and has made it clear that he feels beating the youngest World Heavyweight Champion once and for all will clear his path to holding that same prize.
On the Dec. 9 edition of SmackDown, Randy Orton defeated Dolph Ziggler faster than Wade Barrett, and as a result of that Beat The Clock challenge, won the right to choose the stipulation for their match at TLC. Without a word being spoken, Barrett “suggested” a Tables Match and Orton “agreed” at the expense of Ziggler. (WATCH)
Will it be Orton or Barrett looking over a broken table and possibly also the broken body and spirit of their opponent? We’ll find out on Dec. 18 at TLC.

SmackDown results: Impact is imminent By: Mitch Passero December 16, 2011 Tags: SmackDown: December 16, 2011
RALEIGH, N.C. – As Superstars prepare to smash each other using tables, ladders and chairs at WWE TLC on Sunday, they made final efforts to gain valuable momentum for the brutal pay-per-view. Taking the brunt of World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry’s wrath was a hapless WWE cameraman, who was brutally smashed with a steel chair.
Randy Orton & Zack Ryder def. Wade Barrett & United States Champion Dolph Ziggler (WATCH | PHOTOS) Although they are not competing for a championship at WWE TLC, it’s clear that Randy Orton and Wade Barrett are both eager for a victory on the pay-per-view stage. After a back-and-forth tag team battle, it was The Viper who garnered the win for his team by dropping United States Champion Dolph Ziggler with a stinging RKO. As the ref delivered the three-count, Orton locked eyes with Barrett, who slowly backed away from the ring. (WWE TLC TABLES MATCH PREVIEW)
Sheamus def. Jinder Mahal (WATCH | PHOTOS) Despite the ruthlessness Jinder Mahal displayed against Ted DiBiase, Mahal could not stop the hard-charging Great White Sheamus, who downed Mahal with a stunning Brogue Kick.
Ted DiBiase def. Heath Slater (WATCH | PHOTOS) Ted DiBiase had Health Slater singing the blues when he planted him into the canvas for the win. But before the DiBiase Posse Party hero could celebrate, Jinder Mahal charged to the ring and locked him in a Camel Clutch. Taking charge of the situation, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long emerged and declared that Mahal would face Sheamus.
Mark Henry attacked a WWE cameraman and Jack Swagger (WATCH) Full of rage, The World’s Strongest Man took out his fury on Swagger by blasting him from behind with a steel chair. Not done yet, Henry demolished an unsuspecting WWE cameraman with a vicious shot from behind with a steel chair. The ugly display was eerily reminiscent of when Henry attacked a WWE audio technician earlier this year (FULL STORY).
Big Show def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) Despite being able to lock the massive Big Show in his painful ankle lock, Jack Swagger could not stop The World’s Largest Athlete. With his devastating WMD, Show dropped the former World Heavyweight Champion for the win. Afterward, Show grabbed Swagger by the neck and tossed him from the ring.
Primo & Epico def. The Usos (WATCH | PHOTOS) Despite an impressive effort from both teams, it was Primo & Epico who prevailed when Primo capitalized on a distraction from Rosa to pin Jey Uso.
Alicia Fox def. Natalya (WATCH | PHOTOS) Using her superb athleticism, Alicia Fox managed to roll-up Natalya for a commanding win. In the process, Fox ripped out one of Natalya’s blonde hair extensions. After the bout, Fox added insult to injury by attacking the distraught Diva. “You’re so synthetic, it’s pathetic,” Fox declared.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes def. Daniel Bryan (WATCH | PHOTOS) With Booker T banned from interfering in Rhodes’ match – or their TLC match would be off – the champion got down to business against Daniel Bryan. Looking good for Sunday, Rhodes took Bryan down with Cross Rhodes for the victory.
Booker T vowed to win the Intercontinental Championship (PHOTOS) If there’s any doubt in Booker T’s mind if he’s ready for a return to the ring, he’s certainly not showing it. The veteran Superstar vowed to give Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes the beat down of his life and win the Intercontinental Championship at WWE TLC (PREVIEW). And, "If I win the title, I will defend it," Booker said during commentary.

NORFOLK, Va. — The 2011 Slammy Awards were as wild and unpredictable as always, but everyone in the WWE Universe will be talking about the monster who crashed the party — Kane! John Cena vs. World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry ended in a No Contest; masked Kane returned (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Cenation leader had a week to prepare for this showdown with The World’s Strongest Man, but there was one Superstar John Cena was not ready to deal with on Raw — Kane. Entering through hellfire and brimstone, The Big Red Monster made a shocking return under a mask and attacked Cena, driving him into the mat with a devastating chokeslam. The demon’s motives were unclear, but one thing was sure — hell has come home.
WWE Champion CM Punk won the Slammy Award for WWE Superstar of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) Incapacitated after the brutal beating he received in his tag bout, the WWE Champion was unable to accept the biggest award of the night from presenter Rey Mysterio. (FULL LIST OF SLAMMY WINNERS) Instead, a sneering John Laurinaitis “humbly” did it for him. The executive revealed that Punk couldn't take the stage, but he will be in the ring on Sunday.
Sheamus destroyed Jinder Mahal (WATCH | PHOTOS) Maybe Jinder Mahal should win a Slammy for “Most Embarrassing Moment of the Night.” Seconds after pontificating in Punjabi towards The Great White, Mahal was kicked into the rafters by Sheamus and left laying in a heap in the middle of the ring.
Speaking of Slammys we didn't see on Raw, click here to check out some WWE.com exclusive awards.
Snooki won a Slammy Award for WWE A-Lister of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) In a category that included nominees like The Muppets and Hugh Jackman, it was “Jersey Shore” star Snooki who grabbed the Slammy for her surprisingly agile performance in a Six-Person Mixed Tag Team Match at WrestleMania XXVII. The tanned troublemaker accepted her award from Goldust and Vickie Guerrero via satellite and promised the WWE Universe they’ll see more of her mischief when “Jersey Shore” returns to MTV for another wild season on January 5.
The Miz & Alberto Del Rio def. WWE Champion CM Punk & Randy Orton (WATCH | PHOTOS) Less than a week before he defends his WWE Title against The Miz and Alberto Del Rio in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC, CM Punk teamed with former rival Randy Orton to face his opponents and suffered a vicious beating. Attacked by Wade Barrett during the bout, The Viper chased the thug through the crowd, leaving The Straight Edge Superstar outnumbered by the vicious villains. After Miz pinned Punk, The Mexican Aristocrat and The Awesome One worked together to ruthlessly bash the WWE Champion with a ladder and promised to destroy him completely on Sunday.
The Rock won the Slammy Award for Game Changer of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) Hobbling to the podium on crutches, an ailing Christian ranted about deserving an award for courageousness before presenting the Game Changer of the Year Slammy to The Rock. The Great One was not on hand to accept the trophy, but his WrestleMania opponent did the honors for him. After criticizing The People’s Champion for not showing up, John Cena said The Rock may have changed the game tonight, but this April in Miami the Cenation leader will change the game forever.
United States Champion Dolph Ziggler def. Daniel Bryan, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and Zack Ryder in a Fatal 4-Way Match (WATCH | PHOTOS); Zack Ryder won a Slammy Award for Trending Star of the Year (WATCH) The WWE Universe has spoken — or should we say tweeted. In a category that could only be won by becoming the first name to trend on Twitter, Zack Ryder proved that he was the king of social media. But in the ring, it was United States Champion Dolph Ziggler who came out on top, pinning Daniel Bryan to win a wild Fatal 4-Way bout. Long Island Iced-Z's post-match Slammy celebration was brief, though, as his WWE TLC opponent immediately crushed him with a Zig Zag.
The Undertaker won the Slammy Award for OMG Moment of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Deadman may have won a Slammy Award for kicking out of Triple H’s Tombstone at WrestleMania, but it was The Game who showed up in the ring. Returning to Raw after being put in the hospital by his former friend Kevin Nash, The King of Kings vowed to bring an end to the dangerous Superstar this Sunday at WWE TLC when the two icons meet in a Ladder Match with a sledgehammer hanging above the ring.
Kelly Kelly won a Slammy Award for Divalicious Moment of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) The beautiful Kelly Kelly was grateful to receive the Slammy Award for Divalicious Moment of the Year from legendary Diva Lita, but she was less thrilled when Divas Champion Beth Phoenix and Natalya crashed the party and snatched her statue. Not one to back down, Kelly immediately slapped her tormentor across the face and took her Slammy right back. Now that's Divalicious.
WWE Champion CM Punk won the Slammy Award for Pipe Bomb of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS) Former DX member The Road Dogg made a surprise return to WWE to present the always vocal WWE Champion CM Punk with the Slammy Award for Pipe Bomb of the Year. Accepting the statue alongside a mannequin that looked not unlike a young John Laurinaitis, The Straight Edge Superstar used this opportunity to further embarrass the Interim Raw General Manager by presenting a video package that highlighted the executive’s more embarrassing moments. (WATCH) Punk will definitely hear about this in his performance review.
Big Show and World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry won the Slammy Award for Holy %&@*#! Moment of the Year (WATCH | PHOTOS); Big Show def. Wade Barrett by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) Moments after Big Show accepted the Holy %&@*#! Moment of the Year Slammy on behalf of himself and The World’s Strongest Man for their ring busting brawl at Vengeance, the behemoth faced off with the determined Wade Barrett. Looking to send a message to Randy Orton going into their Tables Match on Sunday, the British thug got himself disqualified by bringing a chair into this bout. In the end, though, he ended up running for his life when The World’s Largest Athlete punched his way through Barrett’s weapon.
Jim Ross won a Slammy Award for the “Tell Me I Did NOT Just See That” Moment of the Year (PHOTOS) SmackDown’s Booker T and Hornswoggle kicked off the 2011 Slammys by presenting the award for the “Tell Me I Did NOT Just See That" Moment of the Year to WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross for his memorable dance moves during the unbearable Michael Cole Challenge.
Of course, as soon as Good Ol’ J.R. took the stage to accept his trophy, he was interrupted by Michael Cole. The sniveling announcer attempted to embarrass Ross, as usual, but ended up humiliating himself when Booker T called for the rivals to faceoff in a freestyle rap contest. Not only did J.R rhyme circles around the so-called “Voice of WWE,” but he finished off his big night by nailing the first-ever Ross-a-Roonie in the ring.
- Regarding Kane's return, word is that he will be on the RAW brand as a heel when he returns. Kane is scheduled to return in time for the Royal Rumble.
On a related note, there's been a lot of speculation on whether or not Kane will be masked when he returns. Word is that that decision is still up in the air. Officials wanted to use the mask in the video so there would be no question that it was for Kane's return.

Results from the Turning Point Pay-Per-View
Challenge Match: In a follow up match from the no DQ match from last month, the show opened with the crowd very much behind RVD. This was a straight up wrestling match with RVD seeming to be one step ahead of Christopher Daniels early in the match. It did not take long for Daniels to retaliate with a series of strikes to put RVD on the defensive. As the match progressed, the action was taken outside of the ring and Daniels was in full control of the match. Daniel’s arrogance showed as he continued to mock RVD and play to the camera. In the ring the power seemed to go between RVD and Daniels and neither competitor would back down.

Tag Team Championship The matchup started with Pope and Crimson and the advantage went to Crimson with his size and strength to the point where many of the hits from Pope seemed to have no effect. Morgan and Devon were tagged into the match and it seemed to be tough for Devon to get one over on Morgan who had the same obvious advantage of being a giant in the ring. After a series of tags that kept the champions in control of the match with a beat down that seemed to be focused on the Pope. Pope finally got relief and tagged in Devon who had control against Crimson and was nearly victorious with a couple near pinfalls that were broken up by Morgan. In the end Crimson was able to get the pin on Devon and they retained their Championships as well as continued Crimson’s undefeated streak.
X Division Championship Aries worked to maintain control of the match despite Kash’s efforts to bring Aries to his pace. There were some nasty hits throughout this match and a series of rapid fire near pin falls that showed volumes about the experience these two have. This match was not without it’s “holy s**t” moment though with a Hurricanrana that was reversed, you would just need to see it to believe it. After a match that was much more physical then any typical X Division match, Aries was able to connect with a brainbuster to retain the X-Division Title.

Steel Cage Match: In a Blockbuster announcement, a stipulation was added that would allow Jeff Hardy a World title shot if he wins the match apart from the prior stipulation that if he loses he is gone from TNA. However in another new stipulation, if Jarrett loses the match, either Karen or Jeff Jarrett will be fired. At ringside, to insure that nobody interferes with the match Sting handcuffed himself to Karen Jarrett. At the start of the match there were numerous escape attempts by both competitors and they effectively used the cage as aweapon to wear each other down. After landing two twist of fates on Jarrett, Hardy attempted a Swonton Bomb off of the top of the cage only for Jarrett to move out of the way at the last second. After Karen managed to disconnect herself from Sting she tried twice to interfere in the match however Hardy was able to take care of business and get the pinfall on Sting to gain a Heavyweight title shot at Genesis next month. Directly after the match Sting announced that this Thursday on IMPACT WRESTLING he will announce if it will be Jeff or Karen Jarrett who will be getting fired.
