Joseph Park vs Doc

Even Joseph Park has a Twitter. Unbelievable. The fans chant "you can do it" at Park as he shoots a double leg on Doc, who sprawls out and breaks clean in apparent amusement. Park shoots in again, but doc simply shrugs Park off and kicks at his leg. Park suddenly slaps the taste out of Doc's mouth, stunning the biker dude. Park dodges a couple of wild swings and goes out to the floor. Doc follows him out and blocks Park from hightailing it, then picks up a chair and swings it at Park, who dodges out of the way at the last moment. Doc tries a wild punch, but Park dodges again and Doc punches the ringpost. Doc goes for a goozle with the good hand, but Park blocks and slams the bad hand into the ring steps. Park dodges another charge and Doc runs himself into the barricade, but they head back inside where Doc hits Park low. Doc takes off his studded belt and prepares to nail Park with it, but the referee takes it away, so Doc goes under the ring and gets the hammer he used on Sting instead. He stalks Park with it, but Park takes him down with a double leg and unloads with right hands and then gets the hammer. Park hesitates because he's a wuss, and Doc suckerpunches Park and starts putting the boots to him. Doc fishhooks Park's mouth and lands an elbowdrop for 2, then chokes Park on the middle rope. Doc with a big splash for 2, then yells at Park to stay down. Park still uses the ropes to pull himself up, so Doc plants another boot in his ribs and unloads with right hands before yelling at him again to stay down. This just infuriates Park, who gets to his feet in a rage and just starts destroying Doc with punches and a shoulderblock. Doc gets his elbow in Park's face when he charges in, then grabs his studded belt again when the ref wasn't looking and nails Park with it. Park is busted open, and the sight of his own blood has some kind of effect on Park that turns him into a vicious monster, charging Doc and destroying him with a charge in the corner. Park hits the Black Hole Slam, but instead of going for the cover, he snaps himself out of the trance he was in and doesn't appear to know what just happened. He big splashes Doc and goes for a cover, but Doc is out at 2 and uppercuts Park in the jaw, sending him out to the floor. Doc tries to reach through the ropes and grab him, but Park hits him in the head with a chair and quickly comes back in to go for a cover. Doc kicks out at 2 and chokeslams Park for the win.

Winner: Doc

Doc isn't finished, and gets back on top of Park to rain down punches onto the fallen attorney. Doc goes back out of the ring and gets the hammer, chasing the referee away when he tries to stop him, but Bully Ray runs in and chases Doc off. Bully Ray helps Park back to his feet and they have a long staredown before Bubba raises Park's hand.

Jeremy Borash is backstage with Bobby Roode, who says that he's getting back in the game tonight. He's getting in the ring with two guys he shares a lot in common with, who know what it's like to be a World Champion, so he's going to go out and do what he's been doing for the last year. He's going to prove that he's the It Factor of professional wrestling, and he's already started the mind games. He beat AJ Styles on Thursday, and Storm may have gotten lucky last week, but if he beats Storm tonight, he'll have the last laugh because Storm will be on the sidelines for the next year while Roode is one step closer to regaining the World Title.

World Tag Team Title Match: Chavo Guerrero Jr & Hernandez vs Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian

Daniels and Chavo start us off with a fast paced back and forth sequence, Chavo takes Daniels down and puts the boots to him, then dishes out hiptosses to both challengers. Daniels gets a boot to the midsection and takes Chavo to the corner to choke him with his boot, but Guerrero with a Thesz Press and then a shot that sends Kazarian off the ring apron. Chavo mounts Daniels in the corner for the ten punch count, but gets jumped from behind by Kazarian, who continues beating on Chavo while Daniels gets into it with Hernandez to distract the referee. Kazarian with a springboard legdrop for 2 on Chavo, but Chavo evades a double clothesline and tags in Hernandez, who takes both challengers out with a double clothesline of his own. Chavo comes back in and slams Kazarian, then Hernandez comes in and slams Chavo onto Kazarian for 2. Hernandez with a big Beell that sends Kazarian flying across the ring, then Chavo tags in and hits a slingshot senton for 2. Hernandez back in with a big splash for 2, but Chavo goes for the frogsplash and Kazarian moves out of the way, and now Chavo is in trouble and in the wrong part of town. Daniels with a second rope curb stomp and then taunts Hernandez to try and draw him into the ring. He doesn't, so Daniels hangs Chavo over the top rope so Kazarian can dropkick him out to the floor, and then they do the Gangnam Style dance. Love it. Chavo tries to sunset flip his way back in, but Kazarian gets a tag off to Daniels and then holds Chavo so Daniels can come in and stomp him in the skull. Kazarian yells at Chavo that his family sucks, and them's fighting words for Chavo, who suddenly hits a tornado DDT and makes the tag to Hernandez, who comes into the ring like a house of fire. Hernandez with an overhead release suplex on Daniels and a charging splash in the corner for 2. Hernandez goes for the Border Toss, Kazarian holds onto Daniels to save him and then nails Hernandez with a missile dropkick. Hernandez skins the cat out to the apron and slingshots his way back in with a double clothesline that takes out both challengers. Hernandez with a shoulder backbreaker on Daniels and then pounces Kazarian into next week. Hernandez goes for a dive to the floor, but gets dropkicked in the face by Daniels. Daniels and Kazarian hit the double goozle, but Hernandez kicks out at 2. Hernandez reverses a double suplex and tosses both challengers, then tags in Chavo, who comes flying in with a dropkick that takes both Daniels and Kazarian out. He continues to work over both men, hitting two fo the three amigos on Kazarian before hitting all three amigos on Daniels. He goes for the frogplash but is interrupted by Kazarian, so Hernandez press slams Kazarian out to the floor and then turns around right into an STO from Daniels. Daniels tries a superplex on Chavo, but Chavo holds him off until Hernandez comes over and picks Daniels up on his shoulders so Chavo can take him out with an elevated bodypress for the win.

Winners: Chavo Guerrero Jr & Hernandez

How do you like that, Chavo CAN come up with his own moves! Good match, Kazarian and Daniiels have meshed so well as a team and I can see them getting the title back sooner rather than later.

Jeremy Borash is backstage with AJ Styles, who now gets to share his thoughts on tonight's three way with Storm and Roode. AJ says he's had a rough year with a lot of distractions, and says the fact that it's been almost three years since he's been World Champion is all the fuel he needs tonight. A new chapter in AJ's life starts tonight and will lead to him becoming the World Champion.

#1 Contender Match: AJ Styles vs Bobby Roode vs James Storm

The winner gets a shot at the World Title, and the loser won't be eligible for a World Title shot until Bound For Glory next year. AJ knocks Roode out with an enziguiri as soon as the bell rings, and he goes at it with Storm as Roode rolls out to the floor. AJ goes for a dropkick but Storm holds the ropes and causes AJ to hit nothing but mat. Roode drags Storm under the bottom rope and they got at it on the floor until AJ comes over the top rope with a dive that wipes both men out. Back inside, AJ with a Bret Hart backbreaker on Roode, followed by a snapmare and an indy kick. AJ slams Roode hard in the middle of the ring and comes off the ropes with a leaping kneedrop for 2. Storm finally makes it back into the ring and unloads on AJ with right hands, AJ responds with some knife edge chops, but gets dumped out to the floor by Roode. AJ gets back to the apron and drops Storm's throat across the top rope before coming back in and drilling Roode with a leaping forearm in the corner. AJ with a big backdrop to Roode and then tries the leaping forearm on Storm, but Storm moves and AJ hits the corner hard and tumbles out to the floor. We're back to Storm and Roode, and they throw down and take turns exchanging blows until Storm takes Roode out with a running forearm and a neckbrekaer. Storm covers and gets 2, then hits a leaping enziguiri to Roode and turns around right into a dropkick from AJ. AJ dumps Roode out to the floor and starts firing kicks at Storm's knee, breaking him down to the mat where he starts stomping on his leg before putting him in the figure four. AJ has Storm right in the middle of the ring, but he releases the hold to nail Roode as he tries to get back in the ring. Roode falls back out to the floor, then goes back to work on Storm's knee and puts him in a Muta Lock. Storm with a quick rollup on AJ for 2, AJ tries for the Styles Clash, Storm backdrops out and makes a cover for 2. Storm gets AJ up for the Eye of the Storm, but leaves himself open for a boot to the gut from Roode, who then hits a DDT and covers Storm for 2. Roode's had quite a lot of time to rest by this point, and starts putting the boots to AJ and Storm, who are both exhausted by this point. Roode with a back elbow on Storm for 2, then snap suplexes AJ for 2. Roode throws AJ out to the floor and gets a Perfect necksnap on Storm for 2. Roode quickly steps out to the floor to whip AJ into the ring steps, taking out his knee in the process, then gets back inside to try a spear on Storm. Storm moves and Roode hits the corner, then Storm hits a Codebreaker and sets Roode up for the Last Call. AJ comes flying in out of nowhere with a springboard forearm and covers Storm for 2, but then he clutches his knee, which still appears to be bothering him. Roode nails AJ with a big right hand that sends him down to the mat, AJ gets the boot up when Roode charges him in the corner and goes for a tornado DDT, but Roode shoves him off and goes for a suplex. Storm comes over and they hit a double suplex on AJ in a surprising moment. They look like they're going to go for "BEER...MONEY!" but Roode tries to suckerpunch Storm. Storm obviously sees it coming and boots Roode in the face, Roode goes to the second rope and Storm tries to superplex him, but AJ leapfrogs over Storm and gives Roode a top rope Frankensteiner before hitting the moonsault deathdrop on Storm for 2. This is still anyone's game as AJ charges Roode and runs into his elbow, and Roode comes off the second rope with a Blockbuster on Storm for 2. AJ ducks a lariat and hits Roode with the Pelle Kick, then clotheslines Storm and they both go over the top rope to the floor. AJ sees Roode down in the ring and quickly tries the springboard 450, but Roode moves and spears AJ for 2. Roode gets AJ in the Crippler Crossface and has AJ trapped right in the middle of the ring, AJ rolls Roode into a cradle for 2, but Roode gets a uranage suplex for another 2 on AJ. He picks AJ up to deliver a hard spinebuster and then goes for the Perfectplex, but Storm comes in and lays Roode out with a lungblower, then hits the Last Call on AJ and covers him for the win.

Winner: James Storm

So James Storm earns himself a World Title shot, but now AJ Styles can't get a title shot for almost a full year and he does NOT look happy about it. Excellent match, easily the best on the show so far, and you could tell how good it was by the fact that the highlight replays lasted for about two full minutes.

Devon is backstage saying that this show is called Turning Point, but his turning point came at Bound For Glory when he was revealed as a member of Aces & Eights, a group of men who had his back when nobody else did. Kurt Angle was in the wrong place at the wrong time and Devon says not to take the ass whipping personally, and he can testify on that.
