Tthere was Samoa Joe, the heavyweight monster of the match that could do crazy dives if necessary. And going into this match, he was undefeated/unpinned in TNA.
There was Christopher Daniels, the defending champion and at the time, longest-reigning X-Division champion. He was also a high-flyer but was also more well-rounded than Styles.
Daniels tried to talk some trash to both of his opponents, but they quickly turned that against him. They took turns punting Daniels in the back, almost in a comedic way..
At times, one man was out of the ring leaving two to duke it out inside it. In one instance, Daniels tried to rely on his speed against Joe..
