The North vs. Rob Van Dam & Rhino

The music of LAX hits but it’s none other than Tag Team Champions The North dressed as the team they forced out of IMPACT Wrestling. The North talk about being the best tag team in the world after LAX wrestled their final match last week. Konnan has heard enough and comes to the ring. Konnan says he has two extreme individuals that the North haven’t taken out – Rob Van Dam & Rhino. The brawl is on and an impromptu tag team match is made.

Rhino attempts the Gore but Page cuts him off with a superkick. RVD and Page spill to the outside with RVD taking a nasty spill. The referee is checking on RVD on the floor. Meanwhile, Alexander attempts to use the title as a weapon but Konnan stops him. Rhino connects with the Gore on Alexander, followed by a Five Star Frog Splash from RVD to win.

Winners: Rob Van Dam & Rhino

The Wedding of Brian Cage and Melissa Santos

Report via Stuart Carapola of

Back to the wedding, where the Rascalz are high, nobody wants to sit next to Jessicka Havok until the Deaners do, RVD is high, Rosemary teleports in out of nowhere, the Desi Hit Squad are tearing up until Gama threatens to slap them, Brian and his brother Ryan are at the altar, and the wedding party comes out.

Tommy Dreamer walks Melissa down the aisle, and Brian’s brother Ryan is officiating. We get to anyone having objections, and Taya goes off all valley girl and then tells Melissa and Brian to continue. Next objection is from Ethan Page, who has objections with how Impact treats its superstars, himself and Josh Alexander (who is wearing his amateur headgear with his shirt and slacks), and wants to know where his royalties are, and says he’s starting a wrestler union. Brian’s brother asks if anyone has an actual objection, and Eddie Edwards staggers in all drunk and throws up in the official’s dress before suckerpunching Ace Austin. Tommy asks if anyone here can officiate the wedding since the preacher got knocked out, and he wants anything, a priest, a shaman, or even a minister. In comes Father Jim Mitchell, who gives them the rings to put on each other’s hands, reads them their rights, so with the power vested in him by the Church of Satan (and the state of Nevada) he pronounces them man and wife.

We head to the ring for the reception, with all the wedding guests surrounding the ring. Brian and Melissa make their way to the ring, and the wedding party trots behind. They do the first dance and are interrupted by Sami Callihan, who congratulates them and says he’s not here for a fight, he’s here for a party. He’s not a bad person, he’s happy for Brian and Melissa, but his feelings are kinda hurt because he and the rest of oVe tried to get into the wedding and weren’t let in. A lot of people might not know their past, they all used to be friends, but that got messed up and he’s sorry for that. After they consummate the marriage, he wants to get back the Brian Cage of old, and when he faces him at Bound For Glory, he doesn’t want to face the has-been, he wants the Machine. He makes a toast to Brian and Melissa, he hopes they have lots of children and a long and healthy one, and that’s his toast to the bride and the bitch.

Cage grabs Sami, Sami swings a wine bottle at Cage, Cage ducks and hits Melissa instead, and she goes down. Sami looks astonished at what he’s done as everyone around ringside swarms into the ring to check on Melissa as we call it a night.
