Tonight, Thursday, December 19, was the tenth annual Final Resolution event, presented by TNA Wrestling. However unlike the previous nine Final Resolution events, this show was not held on pay per view. Rather tonight’s previously taped show was broadcast during the usual two-hour Impact Wrestling timeslot. The event was held in TNA’s old stomping grounds of the Impact Zone inside Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Because the show was treated like a pay per view event (like July’s Destination X, August’s Hardcore Justice, September’s No Surrender and November’s Turning Point) here are the results from tonight’s live show.
Magnus then came out the ring to talk about his upcoming TNA World Title match with Jeff Hardy later tonight and accused Hardy of turning his back on the fans and aligning with Dixie, evening bring the 10.10.10 Immortal storyline from three years ago. Hardy then came to the ring and said that was a different time and place and told Magnus to worry about tonight.
Backstage, Christy Hemme interviewed Kurt Angle about his upcoming bout with Bobby Roode.
Before the Angle-Roode match, Jeremy Borash was outside the conference where the Feast or Fired briefcases would be open. Chavo Guerrero and Zema Ion came in before the case reveal.
Bobby Roode beat Kurt Angle in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match.
- Roode pinned Angle in a short fall with a TKO.
- Angle pinned Roode in another short fall with the Angle Slam.
- Roode reversed the ankle lock into a roll up with his hand on the middle rope to get the pinfall.
This match was incredibly short and lacking the epic feel they were clearly going for.
Backstage, Jeremy Borash talked to Gunner and James Storm before the Feast or Fired reveal.
Backstage, Angle had a near breakdown after his loss to Roode and said he didn’t know what is next for him.
They showed a video package of Madison Rayne and Gail Kim’s past.
Backstage, Jeremy Borash talked to Ethan Carter III about Feast or Fired, before EC3’s phone rang, and it was naturally Aunt Dixie.
Backstage, Eric Young had a gift-wrapped steel chair for Joseph Park in his continuing quest to get Park to realize he is actually his “brother” Abyss.
In the ring, Eric Young brought Joseph Park out the ring for an early Christmas. Young had Park unwrap a series of gifts, including the chair, a bag of thumbtacks and barbed wire. He told Park that he got him booked in a Monster’s Ball match against Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian) next week. He then said Park there was one more gift under the ring, which was Abyss’ favorite weapon, the 2x4 covered in nails nicknamed Janice. Park then reluctantly agreed to the match as a “Janice” chant started.
Backstage, Samoa Joe talked to Jeff Hardy about Magnus’ early accusations.
In the Feast or Fired conference room, Dixie Carter and Jeremy Borash oversaw the cases being opened. Zema Ion’s case contained a X-Division Championship shot. Gunner (accompanied by James Storm) received a World Title shot in his case. Sting then crashed the party and talked about the Guerrero legacy and offered to take EC3’s case from him in exchange for a one-on-one match between the two. Carter declined the offer and the cases were opened. Carter got a Tag Title shot while Chavo Guerrero got the pink slip in his case.
Magnus is interviewed again backstage.
Madison Rayne & ODB beat Gail Kim & Lei’d Tapa. Rayne reversed Eat Defeat and rolled Kim up with a backslide.
Jeff Hardy then came to the ring again and brought up his past transgressions and mentioned Victory Road ’11 before saying that he met with Dixie Carter last week in order to turn her down. Dixie then came to the ring and told Hardy if he didn’t do the right thing he’d be fired
Magnus beat Jeff Hardy in a Dixieland match to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Both Magnus escaped the steel cage, which was step one of the match. Hardy then went to climb the ladder on the Impact Zone stage and grab the World Title but TNA Chief of Staff Rockstar Spud pushed him off the ladder. Magnus then made the easy climb to win his first World Title.
