James Storm cut her off and came to the ring with the bull rope in hand. Storm said he knew Dixie had seen what happened to him last night. Dixie gave him the “And?” treatment. Storm held up the rope and said the wheel picked that match but he wanted more. He said he wanted chairs, tables, barbwire, “that woman’s dentures and that man’s false leg,” in other words, he wanted a Florida Death Match.
Dixie said no and Storm said he refused to press charges last night on Roode, but if she didn’t grant him his match he would call the police back and tell them he changed his mind and she wouldn’t have a match. She told him not to take that tone with her. Storm calmed down and asked her nicely for the match and he would make the cops go away. Dixie said since he asked nicely he had his match. Storm dropped his mic and left.
Backstage, Gunner checked on Storm and asked if he was OK. He said Storm didn’t need those weapons to beat Roode’s ass. Storm agreed and said he wanted to use those weapons for what Storm did to him. He thanked Gunner for being the partner Roode never was. Gunner said he had Storm’s back tonight and every night. They shook hands and Storm went to make his entrance, but not before a video recapped his history with Roode.
As soon as Roode’s music hit Storm ran up the ramp and hit him with a kendo stick to start the match.
James Storm vs. Bobby Roode in a Florida Death match in the TNA Championship Tournament
Storm hit Roode with the stick a few more time until Roode shoved Storm into the post and he came up bleeding. They rolled in the ring, which was covered in weapons, and continued to beat each other with various instruments of destruction. Storm put a trash can between Roode’s legs and hit it with the stick. Not sure how that hurt Roode’s nuts but he sold it like it did. That led to the first ten count so now we know it’s a last man standing match. Storm threw a trash can at Roode and barely made contact so they did the spot again for a near fall.
Storm setup for Eye of the Storm on a trashcan, but Roode escaped and hit the spinebuster on the can. Both men hit each other in the face and head with trashcan lids and both sold. Roode made his feet and tried to hit Storm with a crutch but Storm hit the last call in a cool looking spot. Roode rolled to the floor and pulled a beer bottle out from under the ring and hit Storm with it when he came over to get Roode. Storm made his feet at nine and Roode hit an AA across two chairs for another nine count. Roode hit him with a crutch and screamed for him to stay down. He pulled a board from under the ring with coils of barbed wire on it and lifted Storm. Gunner ran out and threw in the towel to prevent Roode from hitting the move.
Winner: Bobby Roode
Storm was still in the ring and yelled at Gunner. He shoved him away and went to the floor. Gunner followed and tried to plead his case but Storm wasn’t hearing it. Gunner said he was looking out for Storm and stopped Roode from ending his career. Strom stomped off with Gunner in tow.
