TNA Legends champion AJ Styles vs. Booker T - I Quit

They locked up and Booker powered Styles back in the corner.  They pointed out that Booker didn't want Sharmell in the corner so there were no distractions.  Booker kicked him and pummeled his back.  He measured Styles and chopped him in the corner.  He methodically beat down Styles.

Shocked, he got caught with a crossarm breaker.  Styles really wrenched it.  Jenna Morasca came to ringside and threw in the towel.

Your winner and still TNA Legends champion AJ Styles!

The match was OK but couldn't follow the Team 3D finale.  The worke was fine but they've had better matches and the finish really took the edge off the match.  They basically used the entire scenario to fuel the Morasca-Sharmell storyline. 

Jeremy Borash interviewed TNA champion Mick Foley.  Foley said everyone is making sacrifices tonight.  He said he would like to end Sting's career, lead the Main Event Mafia and take Jeff Jarrett's voting power, but the most important thing is to maintain the TNA title.  He said he never wants to see a world where he isn't the TNA champion and will do everything he can to remain "your TNA World champion."
