Austin Aries defeated Mr. Anderson to score 3 points. Anderson has been eliminated from Group Champions. Good competitive match. Both guys pulled out all the stops before Aries hit a sweet top rope Brainbuster for the win. I also liked the roundtable where they talked about coming up on the indies and EC3 acted like he didn't know what that was.
Tigre Uno defeated Mandrews to score 3 points. Fun match. I don't know what Mandrews was going for, but I enjoyed his personality here. All he needs now is some victories under his belt, because I see a bright future for this guy if only TNA will showcase him more.
There was a replay of the Bound For Glory main event where Matt Hardy won the TNA World Title. I can't say I'm happy that they wasted TV time on this, but whatever.
Jessie Godderz defeated Crimson to score 3 points. Eli Drake and Micah went to a double count-out for one point each. Due to time constraints, they only aired highlights of both matches. Damn, this stinks. They call this group "The Future Four" and we don't get to see them in action? They even did a roundtable last week to hype these matches in the first place. I hope they post it on YouTube or something.
Manik defeated DJ Z to score 3 points. Another fun match. Both guys set a fast pace and worked well together. TJP needs to ditch the mask and be himself again, but for now it's nice to see him get a much needed victory after leaving the Revolution.
EC3 defeated Lashley to score 3 points. Solid match. EC3 gets his first major victory in the series and Lashley gets protected by Tyrus's interference. Both guys looked sharp and got some good offense in there as well.
Overall, this was a decent show. I enjoyed the Group Champions and X Division matches, but I'm really disappointed that they cut out Group Future Four when they clearly hyped those matches all week long. While the BFG replay felt pointless and unnecessary, I thought the final two matches ended the show on a positive note.
