Hardy went for the Side Effect but something didn’t go right. Kazarian nailed him and came off the rope with a springboard clothesline. Kazarian went for the reverse piledriver but was nailed.

The time period ended and Ric Flair entered the ring, chopping away at Daniels. Flair and Abyss doubled on Kazarian as Hardy trashed Daniels. Immortal continued to trash Daniels and Kazarian. Hardy whipped Daniels hard into the corner.
Next in for Fortune was James Storm.
He spit beer in Abyss’ eyes then nailed a backstabber on Hardy. Storm and Flair went face to face and Flair begged off. Storm broke a beer bottle over Flair’s face and the cameras caught Flair going for…well, you know. Storm grabbed the glass and dug it into Flair’s face and Ric is busted open. Storm beat the hell out of Flair in the corner. Flair’s shirt was ripped off. He was beaten by Fortune and did the Flair flop face first bump. Flair tried to escape the cage and they pulled his tights down.
The time period ended and Bully Ray hit the cage, working over everyone. The tide turned again. Flair began chopping away at Storm. Hardy did the Tully Blanchard catapult under the ropes on Kazarian. Bully and Abyss doubled up on Daniels.
Finally, Robert Roode entered.

Daniels caught Hardy on the top and Daniels began beating him on top of the cage. Hardy was looking for a way down but Daniels refused. Daniels went for Angel’s Wings but Hardy slipped out and backdropped Daniels near the edge. Daniels almost went off the Cage but saved himself. He acted like he was hanging off but Hardy pulled him up and nailed the Twist of Hate on top of the cage.
Inside the cage, Kazarian dropkicked Hardy off the cage as he was climbing down. Flair looked like he was a plasma convention at this point. Storm covered Ray but Flair began beating him with a kendo stick. Roode caught Flair with a spinebuster.

Daniels returned to the cage but was nailed with the trash can. Ray started killing everyone with the kendo stick with shots to the head and the back.
Flair got a kendo stick of his own and they took turns beating Fortune down. Daniels was busted open. Ray grabbed an axehandle and told Daniels that this was for AJ Styles. Styles’ music hit and he hit the ring, going nuts and beating the hell out of Ray. The crowd loved it. Styles nailed the Pele Kick on Ray.
Flair went to nail AJ from behind but Roode grabbed him and threw him into the ring. Fortune started beating the hell out of Flair. Roode locked on a Fujiwara armbar and finally Flair topped.
Your winners, Fortune!
Fortune all embraced in the center of the ring and celebrated.
A fitting edition of the closest thing we have to the old Wargames - The Match Beyond. This was a hell of a war. Plus, TNA FINALLY booked some babyfaces to be effective asskickers. Very well done main event!
