Rob Van Dam and Katie Forbes came to the ring.  Forbes introduced RVD.  They made out in the ring, to a ridiculous degree.  He said that as the biggest star in professional wrestling, he feels obligated to explain some of his recent actions.  But, the fans wouldn't understand it, unless you had everyone, everywhere wanting to act like you.  If he wasn't RVD, he'd want to be RVD for sure.  He said that everyone is watching all the wrestlers today doing all the RVD moves.  He said that everyone acts as if he hasn't done enough for this industry.

Tommy Dreamer came to the ring.   He said that since Bound for Glory, RVD hasn't returned a text or a call, so he suggests that RVD wrestles Rhino next week with Dreamer being Switzerland as the referee.  He said that they can settle things in the ring like they used to back in the day in Queens.  RVD said Dreamer is living in the past.  Every time all the original hardcore guys get together, everyone gets excited because of ECW, but it's holding RVD back.  Rob said he has to think about himself because he has his girlfriend and his girlfriend's girlfriend to take care of.  That was a great line.  He passes on the match and tries to leave.

Rhino catches RVD in the aisle and tosses him into the ring.  They begin to fight but are held apart by security.   Van Dam leaves as Rhino is held back.  

It will be Rhino vs. RVD with Tommy Dreamer later tonight.

Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie (with John E. Bravo) vs. ODB (non-title)

ODB had control early  but Taya retreated to the floor after a Fallaway slam.  Bravo distracted her but she still caught Taya with a flapjack.  ODB went to the top but was pulled off by Taya, who then nailed a double knee strike.  Taya locked her in a STF but ODB made it to the ropes.  Taya nailed a curb stomp.   ODB was worked over in the corner and beated with strikes.  Taya nailed her with a big chop in the corner then used her boot to smother her in the corner.  Taya placed her on the top but ODB pulled her into her breasts, smothering her, then nailed a series of turnbuckle smashes.  ODB hit an Avalanche splash in the corner, then a bronco buster.  

ODB grabbed her flask to celebrate but Bravo distracted her.  Taya attacked her from behind and stomped and punch ODB down on the mat.  Bravo grabbed the title belt and stood on the entrance ramp but Jordynne Grace grabbed it from him.  That distracted Taya, who was rolled up and pinned.

Your winner, ODB!

Match was OK.  Taya is ridiculously underrated.

Moose vs. Acey Romero

Moose couldn't budge Romero early with shoulderblocks and they faced off.  Romero nailed a series of right hands, bringing him back into the corner.  He hit a big Beal toss on Moose and hit a second.  Moose retreated to the floor but Romero hit a dive to the floor, which is insane.  Moose regained control and beat him with right hands.  He worked over Romero and bit him on the face.  Romero made a comeback and hit a big backdrop.  Moose killed him with a big dropkick in the corner but Romero drilled him with a big right elbow.  Romero went to the ropes but Moose grabbed him and hit a Sky High for a two count.  They battled back and forth with chops until Moose thumbed him in the eye.  Moose nailed the Pounce.  Moose kicked him with a big boot but was caught with a lariat that flipped Moose inside out for a two count.  The crowd chanted back and forth for each man.  Moose nailed another Pounce and scored the pin.

Your winner, Moose!

This had its moments.  Seeing Romero with Moose really shows how broad and massive Romero is.  When he hits a dive, I am scared for everyone on that side of the building.

X-Division Champion Ace Austin & Reno Scum vs. The Rascalz

All action early on, very fast paced.   Dez was worked over by Scum for a long time.  Trey made the hot tag and cleaned house.  He went for a dive but Austin drilled him with a kick as he came through the ropes.  The Rascalz triple teamed Austin and it turned into dive city.  Finally, one of the Rascalz was rolled up with the tights hooked for the pin.

Your winners, Ace Austin & Reno Scum!

This was fun and had way too much to keep up with.

TJP vs. Daga.

They shook hands before the match.

They went back and forth with some nice grappling early on.  They faced off and the crowd gave them a nice round of applause.  Daga was caught in a pinfall but kicked up.  He worked over TJP who came back with a head scissors.    They went back and forth with reversals and near falls before facing off again.  This was really good.  Daga was sent to the floor, where TJP hit a springboard dropkick to the floor.  TJP locked in a straitjacket chinlock.  Daga fought his way out but his arm was snapped down to the mat.   TJP continued working over his arm.   Daga made a comeback with a running sunset flip powerbomb and a double stomp.   He nailed a series of forearms in the corner as well as a back splash senton for a two count.  They battled back and forth with strikes and near falls. They both went for a dropkick at the same time.  The crowd chanted for TJP.  They struck each other with forearms, going back and forth.  TJP hit a rana and locked him in a cross armbreaker.  Daga powered out and locked on an abdominal stretch.  TJP came back with an Octopus.  They continued to go back and forth with near falls.   TJP nailed a superplex and trapped Daga in a leglock.  He turned it into a stretch submission.  Daga finally tapped.

Your winner, TJP!

The Desi Hit Squad attacked everyone.  Daga made the save.  Mahabali Shera hit the ring and chokeslammed the hell out of Daga.  Desi Hit Squad celebrated in the ring.

From an in-ring perspective, this was some of the best and smoothest action of the night.
