We get a backstage video from Jeff Hardy. He says he is going to bring Sting and everyone else back to reality tonight.
They air a video of Sting for tonight’s main event where he starts out talking about how he got into pro wrestling and then when he thought he was going to retire. Sting is back.
TNA World Heavyweight Title Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Sting
We got to the ring and out comes the challenger Jeff Hardy. Out next comes the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Sting and he gets a nice reaction from the iMPACT Zone. Jeremy Borash does formal ring introductions as we get ready to go.
Eric Bischoff interrupts and makes his way out to the ring. Bischoff talks about March 3rd where “the network” got involved in their business. He says since Hardy was taken advantage of, he’s going to be fair tonight. Bischoff extends his hand to Sting but Sting won’t shake it. Bischoff says he spoke with Hulk Hogan and since Hardy couldn’t prepare for Sting on March 3rd, they told Hardy tonight they were changing it ahead of time. Hardy had been preparing for the stipulation and it is… No DQ. Sting decks Bischoff with a right hand and he goes down. The bell rings and here we go.
They play with the crowd to start. Sting bullies Hardy back into the corner and Hardy cowers down. They lock up now and Sting strikes first. Sting hits a few shots and out of nowhere hits a Death Drop for the pin and the win.
