TNA VICTORY ROAD: Sting vs. Jeff Hardy (TNA Championship)
Sting (c) vs. Jeff Hardy
Jeremy Borash did ring introductions for the challenger Jeff Hardy and champion Sting. Following the introductions, Eric Bischoff’s music hits and he walks out to the ring. Bischoff said we have a slight change in plans. He said “the network” got involved in their business on March 3rd and because Jeff Hardy was “taken advantage of” in a blatant way, he will be fair. Bischoff extends his hand to Sting. Sting said he’d rather know what Bischoff has to say. Bischoff said in order to make this fair, after speaking with Hulk Hogan, since Hardy was unable to prepare for Sting on March 3rd, it will now be a No DQ match. Sting decks Bischoff with a right hand. Sting stomps on Bischoff’s arm/hand and Bischoff rolls out.
Jeff Hardy stalls looking at the crowd and where he wants to toss his t-shirt. Sting pulls Hardy out by his hair and hits a Scorpion Deathdrop. Sting covers Hardy and gets the pinfall.
Winner and still TNA Champion: Sting
After the match, Jeff Hardy gets in the referee’s face and stares down Sting. Sting holds up the TNA Championship. We see a replay of the finish, with Tazz adding that this replay was probably longer than the entire match. Back live, Sting is heading up the ramp. The crowd is chanting something at him. Sting replies, “I agree. I agree.” Sting’s music was too loud to hear the crowd.
We then get a highlight video of all the matches taking place tonight. Back live, they close the show after the highlight package.
A promo for TNA Lockdown on Sunday, April 17 in Cincinnati, Ohio airs.
