* Mike Bennett and Maria came to the ring. Bennett gloated about ending EC3's streak, calling himself god. He also talked about previously beating Drew Galloway which means he should be challenging for the World Title. Jeff Hardy came to the ring. Jeff took offense to Bennett calling himself god. Bennett told Jeff he was jealous of him. Bennett told Jeff he would go backstage and ask Dixie for a match tonight. Jeff attacked Mike which led to a match after the break. Not a huge fan of rushing into this match with so little build but they are booking things at a breakneck speed so we are getting a top-notch match.
* Mike Bennett vs Jeff Hardy ended in a no contest when Lashley came out and Speared Jeff. Moments later, he Speared Bennett. He got on the mic and told Dixie Carter to give him the World Heavyweight Title Match. Dixie obliged and told Lashley he wasn't the boss, she was. She said World Title shots aren't given, they are earned. She announced Lashley vs Jeff Hardy vs Mike Bennett with the winner earning a World Title shot. She also announced that the referee would be Drew Galloway. Thankfully this was just a tease between Hardy and Bennett. I like that Dixie is making them earn their title shots instead of just giving it to them.
* Decay came to the ring with Abyss' and Crazzy Steve's head covered in a towel. Rosemary said that Decay has evolved. She said the voiceless Steve now had a voice. Steve spoke a few creepy words. Rosemary then revealed that no longer would anyone control Abyss (referencing James Mitchell, Dr. Stevie and Judas Mesias) as he was coming out from behind his mask. He was revealed to have new facepaint. James Storm came out and Rosemary referenced that they banished one half of Beer Money. Storm said he was now on his own. He cleared the ring of Decay and challenged Abyss to a match. Good segment. Abyss looks creepy without his mask. Don't know what to say yet about Steve's promo. Decay continues to be one of the most interesting things about IMPACT.
* Abyss defeated James Storm after spitting mist in his face and hitting the Black Hole Slam. I love that Abyss/Crazzy Steve were re-invented with Decay but I am not sure that I like it being at the expense of James Storm. I am hoping Storm fights an uphill battle without backup and then someone comes and joins him to even the odds. While Bobby Roode coming back would be very cool, it is VERY unlikely.
* Maria called out Jade. She wanted Jade to lay down for her and give her the Knockouts Title. Jade refused saying she didn't lay down for anyone. Maria said she had someone who believed in her vision and introduced Sienna. Sienna came to the ring and fought with Jade, eventually getting the upper hand. Sienna laid out Jade with her finisher. Awesome debut for Sienna, who looked dangerous here. The Knockouts are another group that look completely fresh. Sienna should be an awesome addition to the company.
* Bram defeated Eli Drake, Andrew Everett, Jessie Godderz and Eddie Edwards in a King of the Mountain Match to retain the KOTM Title. After the match, Eli Drake attacked Bram and looked to cash in his KOTM briefcase but Bram fended him off before he could do it. It was a chaotic match. My gripe with this matchtype is that it requires a good amount of time to let everything breathe. I also feel it is a match that should only be done once or so a year.
* Mike Bennett came out for his main event match but EC3 interrupted. EC3 congratulated Bennett for his win. EC3 said he wouldn't bitch because his loss makes him absolute. EC3 said that he wants Bennett to win tonight so he can feel what it feels like to lose the championship. If Bennett is god than EC3 said he was his devil. Awesome promo by EC3. The streak couldn't last forever. If TNA had PPV, that match would have been on there. This thing between the two isn't over.
* Lashley defeated Mike Bennett and Jeff Hardy to earn a World Title shot (Drew Galloway was special referee). Hardy hit a Swanton to Bennett on the outside when Decay came out and attacked him. Lashley used this opportunity to hit the Spear and win the match. Afterwards, Lashley demanded that Galloway raise his hand but this devolved into a brawl. I don't know why Decay attacked Jeff Hardy but we will know soon enough. Good main event setting up Lashley vs Drew Galloway (likely for Slammiversary on June 12).
