Crazzy Steve intensified the brutality of the match by executing a Twist of Fate with Tommy Dreamer’s head sandwiched inside a chair, causing even more damage to his opponent. After this devastating move, Steve headed to the outside and retrieved a Singapore Cane, signaling his intent to further punish Dreamer with this weapon.

In a bid to escalate the mayhem, Crazzy Steve wedged a trash can into the corner of the ring, causing the trash inside it to spill out and litter the canvas.

Shelley unleashed some Kawada kicks, and Moose responded with a headbutt, only to be met with a devastating clothesline as he rebounded in the ring. The crowd erupted in a massive “TNA” chant. Shelley nailed a superkick but couldn’t execute a Shellshock. Moose capitalized on the opportunity, delivering a spear and covering Shelley for the pinfall victory.

Moose was declared the new TNA Champion in what was an exceptional back-and-forth physical encounter. The System initially came out to celebrate, but a surprise entrance by Nic Nemeth, the former Dolph Ziggler, added an exciting twist. Wearing a Motley Crue shirt, Nemeth attacked Moose and left him incapacitated. He then went into the crowd, revealing a TNA t-shirt, which sent the audience into a frenzy as the show concluded.

It was indeed an excellent show, marking a remarkable resurrection for TNA.
