Eric Young vs. Kurt Angle
We go back to the ring for our next bout at TNA Bound For Glory in Charlotte, North Carolina. Out first comes Eric Young followed by his opponent for this evening, the legendary Kurt Angle.
Before the bell can hit, Young takes to the mic for some pre-match comments. The crowd chants "Angle, Angle". Young calls himself God and threatens to end Angle's career tonight, forever, giving Angle one last chance to forfeit.
Angle picks up the mic and agrees that Young is possibly the only person that might end his career, and explains thats why he won't be just wrestling Young tonight, but it will be an "anything goes, no disqualification" match. The bell rings and the match begins.
Both men immediately take the fight outside of the ring and over the barracade and begin to fight through the audience. The fight makes its way back into the ring, action packed here in the beginning. Young nails Angle with a piledriver. Angle instantly rolls out of the ring holding his neck as he is still recovering neck surgery.
EMS comes out to check on Angle, the doctor tells the ref to call off the match. Angle is helped back to his feet by EMS and is helped up the ramp. Young begins to clear the EMS medical staff using physical force and quickly turns his attention back to an injured Angle, insisting that the match continue despite Angle's condition. Just like he warned him in the beginning of the match.
Angle tries to fight through the pain as the match goes back outside of the ring. Angle suplexes Young as he gains momentum and throws Young back into the ring. Young, however, instantly takes control back in the match delivering more punishment to a grounded Angle who was having trouble standing on his own.
Shockingly, Angle starts to fire up, blasting Young with a series of German Suplexes and then an Angle Slam. The fans start to rally behind Angle just as Young starts to fight back. Young with a flying elbow drop following several stomps to the back of Angle's surgically repaired neck. Angle catches Young with his Ankle Lock submission finisher.
Young struggles and finally makes it to the ropes only to remember that there are no DQ's in this match. Angle yanks him back to the middle of the ring and applies the hold even tighter, eventually Young taps out. Great match, worth watching Angle, who is still clearly one of the best in the business.
Winner: Kurt Angle
TNA World Title
Special Referee: Jeff Hardy
Ethan Carter III vs. Drew Galloway vs. Matt Hardy
Finally, we reach our moment! It's time for tonight's main event of the evening, which will be contested for Ethan Carter III's TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Out first comes the champ himself, EC3, as he makes his way down to the ring accompanied by Tyrus. Tyrus is eventually booted from the ringside area. Matt Hardy and Drew Galloway make it to the ring, as does Jeff Hardy, who wearing face paint, will serve as the special referee for this main event contest.
Early on, EC3 doesn't seem to have much help, as we all know he likes, however he manages to take out Hardy and Galloway with a pair of dropkicks. EC3 sets up a table, pulling Galloway to the top of the stairs, Galloway counters with a backdrop onto the stairs.
The action returns back to the ring where the announcers put over EC3's injured back after Galloway's backdrop on the stairs outside of the ring. Now they go back to the table that was set up outside of the ring earlier in the match. EC3 puts Galloway on the table and then takes Matt Hardy and suplexes him onto Galloway and both go through the table.
The brawl resumes inside of the ring where all three guys seem revived and the pace of the action picking up with all three going at it, as opposed to two of the guys battling it out while the third is off selling somewhere off-camera.
Now, all three guys are down and slowly struggling to make it back to their feet. The fans are rallying a bit now, sensing that this main event and show as a whole, is about to come to a close. All three guys trade punches from their knees. They all get to their feet and they do some more sequence-type stuff with all three guys.
We get to a point where EC3 has both guys down and grabs a steel chair. As he enters the ring, referee Jeff Hardy stops him. EC3 yells and orders Jeff to take the chair and hit Matt. He slaps Jeff. Jeff loses his cool and bashes him with the chair. Hardy catches Galloway with his finisher and covers him as his brother Jeff counts 1-2-3. We have a new TNA World Champion.
Winner and NEW TNA World Heavyweight Champion: Matt Hardy
