Jarrett joins in on insulting Hermie Sadler wants to know why they didn’t get a real NASCAR driver like Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to drive the NWA-TNA race car in the NASCAR Busch Series? Why didn’t they get Tony Stewart and why didn’t they get Sterling Marlin? Why didn’t they get your string bean brother Elliot Sadler? Hermie Sadler tells Jarrett to s**t up!

Ron Harris and Sonny Siaki vs. Chris and Rick Michaels
This is a qualifying match for the NWA Tag Team Championship. Tenay points out that Chris and Rick aren’t related. Little known fact: AJ Styles was trained by Rick. He is also the man taking the majority of the punishment in the opening minutes of the match. Siaki takes some cheap shots on the outside and continues the attack on the inside. Rick turns things around with a facebuster/neckbreaker combo and makes the hot tag to Chris.
The comeback is short-lived as Harris pulls Chris to the outside and throws him into the barricade. Back inside, Harris destroys Chris with a number of clotheslines. Chris fares better against Siaki, taking him down with a flying forearm and making the tag to Rick. Match breaks down and Siaki catches Rick with a modified Cutter. He has the match won but Harris stops the ref from counting and instructs Siaki to pick Rick up.
He does, and Harris goes for a big boot but hits Siaki accidentally. Rick goes for the pin-fall 1-2-3!
Winners: Chris & Rick Michaels.
Post-match, Sonny Siaki and Ron Harris get into it. Don Harris and the rest of TNA security break it up with Don tossing out Siaki.

The man in question, Mortimer Plumtree, is out next with Steel. Low-Ki is a liar and a scrawny punk.
The whole world knows how Low-Ki made a butt out of himself when he picked a fight with Tammy Sytch. Low-Ki thinks Plumtree has some nerve by continuing to showcase his ignorance. Plumtree is an outsider who reads and believes the lies others write. He will always be an outsider looking in. NWA representative “Bullet” Bob Armstrong comes out.
This isn’t some talk show, and he is here to lay it down. Low-Ki will take on Ace Steel and the winner will face Styles. He calls for a ref and we have a match. Fans chanting nerd! At Mortimer Plumtree. Fans chanting nerd! At Mortimer Plumtree. Fans chanting nerd! At Mortimer Plumtree.

X-Division Championship: Ladder Match
AJ Styles vs. Ace Steel vs. Syxx Pac vs. Kid Kash vs. Jose Maximo vs. Joel Maximo vs. Tony Mamaluke
What rankings? Throw them all in! Chaos to start and both Maximos introduce ladders. Before long, everyone is brawling on the outside and Styles takes them all out with a springboard shooting star press. Inside, Styles continues by taking out both Maximos and Kash, but things go downhill for him from there. Mamaluke, Steel and Kash all get their shots in on him, the only fresh man in the match.
That doesn’t stop Styles from charging at Joel and sandwiching him between two ladders. He teams with Kash to double powerbomb Jose onto the sandwich in the corner. Steel remains the only X-Division guy with a brain tonight, staying away from the chaos and picking his spots. He has an awkward exchange with Kash on the top rope and ends up being superplexed to the mat.
Kash has the match won atop the ladder, but moonsaults off of it instead of onto Steel instead of grabbing the belt. Styles takes some more punishment, running into a ladder shoulder-first on a suicide dive attempt. Steel brings more smarts, attacking Mamaluke’s arm in-between a ladder to make climbing more difficult. With two ladders set-up in the middle of the ring, we inevitably get the spot where everyone tries to climb at the same time.
It doesn’t last very long and Kash tornado DDTS Jose off the top. To counteract Steel, Kash brings the stupid and hits a high crossbody off the top rope onto Jose on the outside. Why? I have no idea. Back inside, Steel and Mamaluke exchange headbutts atop the ladder until Kash dropkicks it out from under them. Kash tastes some of his own medicine as Joel hits a one-man Spanish Fly off the top of the ladder.
Steel tries to climb again but Styles takes him out with a sunset flip powerbomb off the top. That man will never learn. Mamaluke comes off the top with a DDT on Styles, only to be unceremoniously press slammed to the outside seconds later by…Styles. One superplex on Kash later and Styles is left alone to climb. That is until Syxx runs down and back suplexes him off the top of the ladder. Syxx climbs and retrieves the belt at the end of NWA-TNA PPV 16.
Winner: AND NEW X-Division Champion, Syxx-Pac.
