A video package runs focusing on tonight’s “No Holds Barred” match between TNA Champion Bobby Roode and Sting. The clip highlights Roode insulting Sting and this causing Sting to “wake up.”
A graphic opening hits welcoming us to Victory Road. We go live to Orlando, Florida inside the Impact Zone where a big display of pyro goes off. Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us to tonight’s live Pay Per View event. They promote #VictoryRoad wanting live tweets from people watching the show live tonight.
Bully Ray’s music hits and he storms down to the ring. Tenay mentions the video released on YouTube where Ray claimed he would hold the PPV hostage tonight unless his match with James Storm tonight was changed to a #1 Contendership match for the TNA Championship. Ray gets on the mic, tells the crowd to shut up and kicks out the referee. Loud “WE WANT DEVON” chant. Ray asks the crowd if they know who he is. Loud booing reaction. He introduces himself and claims he is the “talk of the wrestling world.” Ray adds that right now he is trending worldwide on Twitter. He claims he is taking the PPV hostage and says the crowd will get nothing unless he gets what he wants. What Ray wants is for his match with James Storm to be for the #1 Contendership at Lockdown. Ray said he doesn’t care if other wrestlers, security, referees or even the police come down – he will stay here until he gets what he wants.
James Storms’ music hits and walks down the ramp with a mic in hand. Storm says Ray has chicken legs. On a related note, “Bully Ray” is actually trending worldwide on Twitter. He said he will knock out Ray with his foot and that removing him from the ring will be easy. Storm says he has Ray’s answer and he will give it to him right now. Storm hits the ring and here we go.
When James Storm hits the ring, Bully Ray cuts him off and hits a series of elbows. Ray tosses Storm to the corner and throws a few right hands. Ray grabs Storm’s beer bottle, takes a sip, runs at Storm and Storm catches Ray with a superkick. Storm hooks the leg and that is it folks.
Winner and still #1 Contender for the TNA Championship: James Storm
Backstage, Jeremy Borash is with TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries. Borash asks Aries a question from a fan on Twitter asking when Sting will smarten up allowing him to main event a PPV. Eric Bischoff walks up and tells Borash to take a hike. Aries says he doesn’t have to be in the main event to steal the show. Both shake hands.
