It’s time for our next match of the evening. The video package airs to tell the story leading up to tonight’s TNT Championship showdown between current, reigning title-holder Samoa Joe and former champ Wardlow.

Wardlow takes the fight to Samoa Joe immediately, brawling to the point where they head outside the ring as Wardlow launches the champion into the ring apron. However, as he tries to get back into the ring Joe hangs him up on the top rope and then launches himself outside the ring with an elbow suicida. However, while Joe takes control that is changed when Wardlow connects with a whisper in the wind. 

He then drives his shoulder into Joe repeatedly in the corner, following up with a snap suplex. Wardlow connects with a big chop, but Joe then targets the leg of Wardlow, chopping the big man down as he follows up with a series of punches and elbow strikes in the corner of the ring before slamming him down with a urinagi. Wardlow trades punches back with Joe, but a huge strike to the leg drops the challenger down. 

Wardlow manages to hit a spine buster and follows it with a senton, but Joe manages to kick out. The champion then locks in a rear naked choke, dropping his former tag team partner to the mat as he begins to fade away, but he manages to get to the bottom rope in time. Joe aims for a Muscle Buster but Wardlow blocks it and he then carries Joe from that corner and hits a powerbomb only for Joe to fire back with a massive lariat. 

Joe aims for a Powerbomb Symphony but Wardlow headbutts him and then sets in the rear naked choke himself, and Joe ends up fading out and is unable to respond as the official tries his arm three times with Powerhouse Hobbs watching on. 

Winner and NEW TNT Champion: Wardlow
