- Daniels defeated "The Franchise" Shane Douglas in the "Second Chance Match" after Daniels hit the Best Moonsault Ever.

- Angelina Love successfully defended the TNA Knockouts Championship over Tara when Velvet Sky interfered on behalf of her Beautiful People partner. Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne interfered throughout. Velvet sprayed hairspray in Tara's eyes, allowing Angelina to hit her finisher and get the pin to retain the gold.

- Abyss and Taylor Wilde defeated Raven and Daffney in the "Monster's Ball" match when Abyss reversed a DDT into the Black Hole Slam for the pin on Raven. The chaotic bout also saw Wilde and Daffney go hardcore on each other with weapons and tacks!

After Team 3D hit their finisher, Rob Terry of the Invasion climbed up on the ring apron - causing a battle between Team 3D and the British Invasion. This allowed Beer Money to hit their finisher on Brother Devon to get the win!

- Kurt Angle became the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion by winning the King Of The Mountain main event, beating Mick Foley, Jeff Jarrett and AJ Styles...with help from Samoa Joe!!! As Joe was climbing the ladder to win it, he handed the gold to Angle! Joe shocked the wrestling world with his actions - the question is, what will be the fallout from what he did?

The only result that I'm really surprised about was Angle's title win...or I guess the Samoa Joe heel turn and handing him the title. I would assume that means he's in the mafia but who knows for sure. It seems a little weird but I can give this a shot because I enjoy Joe alot.

All the results seem to make sense to me for the most part.

I think Joe turning heel is a really big thing. He's been one of (if not THE) top-billed faces in the company and has been on a huge revenge tour against the MEM. Classic in the "out of nowhere" heel turns that Kurt Angle is probably the one he's been taking secret advice from in recent weeks. Joe hasn't been a heel for years, and it's refreshing for him. Seeing Angle as champ again is pretty sweet, too.

I'm definitely all for Kurt Angle as the champion...he's gotten back on my good side the past 6 months or so after his disrepectful actions on his way out of WWE. Time heels all wounds and Angle hasn't been as outstanding against Vince the past year. But that's a different story. Joe in the mafia would be huge. I got the feeling Joe was going to run them all down and kill the mafia but instead you've got him joining up. Classic Vince Russo/NWO kinda manuever.

AJ Styles is certainly going to have something to say about this...Joe vs Styles would be epic as always. And Daniels cant be too happy either.

Joe vs. Daniels vs. Styles was probably one of the best feud in TNA history...seeing some sort of rekindling would be a lot fun.

meant to be a pretty solid pay per view, definitely gonna try check it out. Though i haven't watched a TNA show in god knows how long. Tried to watch last week's impact but all the versions uploaded on the net were messed up in either video or audio for some reason.

As for the twist at the end... Kind of mixed feelings about it. On one hand i think it's great. Completely unexpected and it'll be cool to see Joe as a heel. The only minor gripe i would have with it is... It is just so WCW.

It's a face joining a heel faction in a way that really completely lacks any logic to it whatsoever. The writing in general is really reminiscent of WCW. I worry that Russo and co. haven't learnt their lesson from before and they're going to keep running with this faction long after it should be dead and buried. But that's just more of a future concern than a problem with the twist itself!

All in all, i think i might try get back into TNA, it looks to be picking up a little. And with the way RAW has gone.... I am going to need some alternatives!!! :p
