The 2011 TNA Against All Odds PPV kicked off with a video feature covering all the recent TNA storyline events, including Mr. Anderson’s TNA title win, Fortune turning on Immortal and the Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Jarrett storyline.
Mike Tenay and Taz welcomed everyone to the PPV, going over the top matches. They announced that Generation Me were unable to make it to Florida due to travel issues, so they won’t be able to compete in their scheduled match to name the top contender for the X-Division championship.
Robbie E and Cookie made their way to the ring. Robbie took the mic and said that he’s got good news and bad news. He said that the good news was that since Generation Me had travel issues “aka were afraid of Robbie E”, he was the new top contender to the X-Division championship. The bad news was that no one gets to see him wrestle tonight. He demanded the referee count Generation Me out of the ring to make it official and told him to hurry, since “we have to get to the clubs.”
The referee called for the bell and began making the count. Robbie E did a fist pump as each number was counted off. He won via countout and began celebrating, carrying Cookie around the ring.
E began leaving the ring and Taz wondered if he even knew that Kazarian was going to defend the title tonight. As he made his way to the ramp, Kazarian’s music began and out came the X-Division champion. He backed up Cookie and E towards the ring. Kazarian took the mic and said that while E was OK with getting out of there with a cheap victory but as a member of Fortune, he can’t not let everyone get what they paid to see. He said that perhaps E didn’t get the memo, but there is indeed going to be a championship bout tonight. He said it was going to happen right now.
As Kazarian put down the mic, E attacked him on the ramp but Kazarian beat him back down to the ring. Kazarian tossed him in the ring and hit a Gutwrench suplex. Cookie tried to interfere but was thwarted. Kazarian set up E on the ropes, then kicked him off to the floor.
Kazarian went to the top rope for a dive but Cookie went to interfere. Kazarian grabbed her but E grabbed Kazarian’s legs and yanked them out from him. Kazarian took a hard bump down, crashing into the stairs. E slammed Kazarian’s arm into the stairs.
Kazarian fought back but was kicked down. E went to the ropes for a fistdrop and covered the champion for a two count. He shoulderblocked Kazarian into the corner. E argued with the referee, allowing Cookie to choke Kazarian in the corner. E used his boot to choke Kazarian against the ropes.
Kazarian came back with a right hand and a side Russian legsweep for a two count. E cut him off and went back to work on Kazarian’s shoulder and back. He used his knee to try and strangle Kaz, then nailed him with a snapmare. E locked in a side chinlock to try and force Kazarian down.
Kazarian made a comeback with a clothesline and scored a close two count. He went for the inverted tombstone but E slipped out and went for a swinging neckbreaker. Kaz escaped and rolled him up for a two count. E kicked Kazarian into Cookie, who nailed him. E rolled up Kaz for another two count.
E stalked Kazarian, slapping him and trash talking. Kazarian ducked a move and caught Robbie with the inverted tombstone for the pin.
Your winner and still X-Division champ, Kazarian!
