With that being said, there will be a fight tonight. Big Show will team with Dolph Ziggler to face Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio. That will be the main event tonight. It will be a tag team main event extravaganza.
Booker tells Show, Ziggler, AJ, and Langston to leave the ring because they were not invited to the party.

Mr. Anderson vs. Samoa Joe Joe seems to have a gripe against Mr. Anderson as he started the match with a high amount of intensity after a somewhat short back and forth argument in the ring. Joe rocked Mr. Anderson for the first few minutes but Anderson was able to strike back at Joe but despite this still saw an onslaught of blows from Joe. Anderson went outside the ring to regroup, however Joe wants answers so he followed him to get them. Outside the ring the advantage went back and forth between Joe and Anderson before it going back into the ring. Things seemed to be on more of an even keel in the ring. Anderson slowly began to dominate and take advantage of Joe’s injured knee. Unfortunately for Anderson he wasted a bit too much time and after going outside the ring Joe was able to land a suicide Dive onto him and bring himself back into the game. Joe who is obviously in pain pulled out a couple near pin falls but Anderson kicked out and went back to work on the knee but not for long as Joe was able to fight back. After a distraction by a member of Aces and 8s, Anderson was able to land a mic check and get the pin for the win.

Devon vs. Joseph Park Joseph Park makes his debut after attending Wrestling School at the developmental territory for IMPACT WRESTLING, Ohio Valley Wrestling, against Devon of Aces and 8s. Park seemed slightly more confident going into this matchup and the crowd was absolutely behind him despite the cards being stacked against him. Devon started out with smack talk to tear down Joseph but the crowd pulled his confidence back around. The two locked up to kick things off, Devon seemed to not take the match seriously with numerous signs of disrespect. After locking up for the 3rd time Devon managed to outwrestle Park and embarrass him. Devon made Joseph get down into collegiate style wrestling however things backfired for Devon. Devon started to take things seriously, however, Park is in much better ring shape than expected so things were interesting at least for a couple minutes. Devon took things outside the ring and tore down Park and brought things back into the ring taking off one of the turnbuckles possibly for later use. When Devon attempts to use the exposed turnbuckle Park put the breaks on it. Joseph had an impressive showing that led to him jumping off the top rope and a near pinfall on Devon. Everything changed when Park saw blood and he snapped into something reminiscent of his brother. Joeseph Park snapped out of it before connecting with a choke slam and due to this Devon was able to jump in and steal the victory from the confused Joseph Park.
Knockouts Gauntlet Match for the #1 Contender: The match started out with Gail Kim and Miss Tessmacher facing off in the ring in rather heated fashion. Tessmacher was able to pull off a few near pinfalls but after Eat Defeat, Miss Tessmacher was eliminated and ODB came in as the next contestant to the match. Gail Kim ran to ODB but was taken out while still on the ramp. Gail Kim was dominated by ODB and her different style. ODB’s first attempt to eliminate Gail Kim was unsuccessful so she went back to work on her. Gail Kim was able to pull back around and after pulling ODB’s tights was able to get the pin and the next contestant, Mickie James, came to the ring. Gail seemed to pull out a bit more of an offensive this round despite her facing her third fresh competitor. Mickie pulled together an offensive and just as Mickie was at the peak, Gail Kim left the ring but it was not enough to stop Mickie James. After Mickie made an attempt to get a pin she reversed into a roll up to pin Mickie and the next competitor is Velvet Sky. Gail, still outside of the ring, snuck up on Velvet and smashed her into the steps giving herself a chance to regroup. Upon Velvet reentering the ring Gail makes three unsuccessful pin attempts that is answered by an unsuccessful attempt by Velvet. Gail tries yet again to pin Velvet using the ropes for leverage, however this was noticed by referee Taryn Terrell and she put a stop to the count. A distracted Gail Kim was taken out by an In Yo Face from Velvet Sky and she picked up the win with a pin that was questionable as Gail Kim’s foot broke the plane outside the ring.
Fight for World Title Match on Jan 24th episode of IMPACT WRESTLING Both men had an impressive showing for the first part of the match. Storm’s plan as stated by Tenay was to outwrestle Daniels, which he effectively was able to do. After a distraction by Kazarian at ringside, Daniels was able to knock him out of the ring and allow for Kazarian to beat down on Storm and throw him back in the ring without the referee even knowing. This tactic allowed for Daniels to have full control of the match for quite a bit of time. Daniels used many submission moves possibly due to Storm’s ability to land the last call super kick from a distance that is usually required in high risk moves. Storm was able to gain the favor of the match up to a high elbow off the top rope that led to a near pin fall. Even after an Eye of the Storm, Daniels managed to kick out. Storm nearly connected with the Last Call Super Kick but he missed and Daniels landed an Angel’s Wings, but was unable to get the pin. Storm, before attempting the last call super kick on Daniels, was distracted by Kazarian and he implemented the Kick on Kazarian instead. This backfired as Daniels managed to come in and get the pin on Storm for the win despite his feet on the rope, which went unnoticed by the referee.

World Heavyweight Championship: In this elimination style match, Both Aries and Roode made it apparent before the match that they would work together to take out Hardy, which immediately put the champ at a disadvantage going into the match. This was made apparent at the start of the match as both men went to work on Hardy but he put up a good fight against them. Hardy worked back and forth from one competitor to the other with the hope to isolate one so as to not be in a 2 on 1 situation. Roode worked sometime to eliminate Hardy while Aries stayed outside of the ring resting up but Roode’s attempts were unsuccessful. A short time later after Roode was taken out of the ring Aries took to the ring to work on Hardy but was also not successful, however upon Roode reentering the ring both were able to get to work on the champ in a 2 on 1 scenario. Hardy eventually held his own but the situation seemed to get too much for the champ. Roode held onto Hardy so Aries could land a suicide dive, however he was able to get out of the way in time for Roode to take the brunt of the suicide dive. Following this the momentum was in the favor of Hardy but again the number handicap continued to haunt Hardy. Hardy’s resilience was obvious after kicking out of a spine buster by Aries. Following this Roode attempted to double cross Aries and trick him into getting pinned but was unsuccessful. This was enough to break the collusion the two had up until this point and this lead to the two going against each other. Roode was taken out with a pin by Aries with Hardy assisting in the pin fall elimination. Now with things down to one on one with Aries and Hardy, Hardy was able to take out Aries with a Swonton Bomb and get the pin for the win to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.
