Ray worked him over. Taz talked about how he broke his neck on a piledriver (in 1995 in ECW) and was never the same to put over how dangerous the move is. Ray grabbed a chair and missed a shot at Sting, hitting the ringpost. Sting got the chair and drilled Ray across the back.
They battled up the ramp. Sting kept beating him with a chair. Brooke Hogan came out. She seemed concerned. Sting implored her that she had to go back. He went to grab Bully but was lowblowed. Ray worked him over with a series of chairs to back and brought him back to the ring.

Ray took him down but missed a back senton off the ropes. Ray nailed the Scorpion Death Drop on the exposed boards. Sting covered him but Aces & Eights hit the ring. The crowd hated this.
They all worked over Sting. He fought back with a series of low blows and punches. He tossed Garrett Bischoff over the top to the ramp and Garrett took a sick bump. Sting and Ray were left in the ring. Devon tossed Ray a chain but Sting caught it and nailed him. The referee counted two but Devon pulled him out of the ring. Sting went to the floor and nailed Devon.
Sting went to the ropes and dove off but Ray nailed him with the hammer as he came down and scored the pin.
Your winner and still TNA champion Bully Ray!
Sting can never have another title shot, according to the stip. The show ended with Sting out cold as Aces & Eights celebrated.
Another fun match. It was more of a chaotic brawl but with the exposed boards, etc. they threw in a few different wrinkles. Enjoyable main.
