Sting retained the TNA World Heavyweight Title in the main event of tonight’s show in a very quick and unusual match against Jeff Hardy. Eric Bischoff came out before the match and made it No DQ, before Sting laid him out. There wasn’t much physical contact in the match as Sting hit the Drop out of nowhere and pinned Hardy for the odd win.
There’s no word yet on why the quick finish happened but we do know that Sting is in bad shape, more than originally thought. It would have made sense for Sting to drop the title if he was injured but he retained. The show ended tonight with a long recap video of earlier matches and an empty ring shot. Taz and Mike Tenay played it up like Sting had just re-invented himself with the win over Hardy.
