This needs to be short and over fast, PLEASE.
ODB rubbed Deaner's hat and shirt in her privates. She worked him over with chops in the corner. Deaner missed a chop and got nailed with another. He shoved her away and continued chopping him. He went for a lowblow but she, you know, has no testicles.
She nailed him again and Deaner went to the floor. ODB dove off the top to the floor. She slammed his head into the apron. Deaner tried to walk out but ODB dragged her back and slammed him into the apron again, then tossed him into the ring. Deaner reversed an Irish whip but was caught with a kick.

Somewhere, Tommy Young is smiling. ODB nailed a sunset flip but Deaner got to the ropes. Deaner called the ref and idiot, so he kicked Deaner's hands. Two count. Tommy Young is definitely smiling.
ODB was drilled with Deaner's knockout punch but got her shoulder up at two. Deaner went to the top rope but missed a diving headbutt. ODB nailed a TKO and scored the three count.
Your winner (thankfully) and new Knockouts champion, ODB!
The shenanigans were fine for what it was. I'm hoping this is the end of men wrestling for the Knockouts division. There are more than enough talented females for that.
Lauren interviewed ODB on the entrance ramp. ODB said she might not like all the broads in the back, but they've all worked hard to create a title that means something. She said let the party begin in all the trailer parks and prisons all over the world. That cracked Taz up.
Jeremy Borash interviewed TNA champ Kurt Angle and asked if he's got more than he can handle tonight in Matt Morgan. Angle said that even if that was the case, he wouldn't admit it. Angle said Morgan is all height and no brains. He said if height mattered, Morgan would already be champion. Angle said he could have made Morgan something but instead, he'll just be a statistic. In regard to Sting and Styles, Angle said that he loves fairy tales as much as anyone, but when it comes to his World title, "It's real, damn real."
TNA Legends champ Kevin Nash vs. Abyss
Nash is going for the bounty on Abyss' head. Mick Foley came to ringside to announce carrying a barbed wire bat. Angle time?
Abyss and Nash battled back and forth in the center. Nash got the better of him and nailed him with kicks and punches in the corner. Nash used his boot to choke Abyss in the corner. Nash drilled him with several kicks and clotheslined Abyss over the top to the floor. Nash slammed his head into the ring steps. Nash grabbed a chair at ringside and slammed it but Abyss moved. Abyss slammed his head into the railing outside the ring, then into the ring steps.
Dr. Stevie came out on the stage and sat down in a chair to watch the proceedings.
Nash nailed Abyss with a boot, then measured Abyss with a back elbow in the corner. Fans tried to rally Abyss as Nash used his boot to choke Abyss against the ropes. Nash dropped an elbow. Abyss came back to duck a right hand and hit a flying clothesline while rebounding off the ropes. Abyss nailed a sideslam on Nash.
Dr. Stevie came towards the ring but the referee met him in the aisle. Daffney, looking HOT, hit the ring and tried to taser Abyss but was caught with the Black Hole Slam. Abyss teased using the Taser but Stevie grabbed it and ran off. Nash nailed a distracted Abyss with a chair to the head and covered him for a two count. Nash went for a powerbomb but Abyss escaped and nailed a chokeslam for a two count.
Abyss called for Mick Foley to give him the barbed wire bat. Foley pointed out there was a referee there, then said OK, he would. The referee stopped Foley from giving him the bat. Foley still slowly handed it to Abyss, allowing Nash to taser Abyss in the leg and cover him for the pin.
Your winner and still TNA Legends champ Kevin Nash!
Nash grabbed the bounty money but Stevie said no because he didn't destroy Abyss. Big Daddy Cool then powerbombed Big Stevie Cool and took the money anyway.
Match was OK but not memorable in the least. I hated the taser finish. Too hokey. The idea here is to obviously build Abyss vs. Foley as a feud.

Steiner said they don't like anyone from any other country and told Borash to inform the British Invasion to stay out of their way. Booker T said Harlem Heat and The Steiners were the best tag teams ever and everyone else - where have all those bums been?

Beer Money returned to the ring and worked on Booker. Roode hit the neck snap. Beer Money hit the DWI on Doug Williams and scored the pin.
