ANNOUNCERS - THE POPE & JOSH MATHEWS

1# Tigre Uno & DJ Z move on to the round of 16 in a Reverse Elimination "Group X Division" tiebreaker 3-way dance
(DJ Z pinned Manik and Tigre Uno pinned Manik)

2# Drew Galloway bt. Rockstar Spud in a "Group UK" match (Galloway gets 3 points)

We see a clip of Josh Mathews' "My First Day" Youtube show here Josh talks with Bobby Roode about his first day in TNA. He also talks about when he returned to TNA after his initial start there, with Team Canada. Roode also talks about the six sided ring and how he was confused when he saw it for the first time. He says that he was in the very first match in TNA in that ring and that now it is no different than wrestling in a four sided ring to him.

3# Bram bt. Grado in a "Group UK" match (Bram gets 3 points)
4# Jessie Godderz bt. Micah Via Submission in a "Group future 4" match (Godderz gets 3 points)
5# Davey Richards bt. Robbie E in a "Group tag team specialists" match (Richards gets 3 points)
6# Kenny King bt. Crazzy Steve in a "Group Wildcard" match (King gets 3 points)

Another clip of Josh’s Youtube show is shown with Robbie E this time and he tells a hilarious Vince Russo story where he pretty much got his job in TNA because Vince Russo was walking by him while Simon Diamond was talking to him. Diamond told Russo “this guy is from Jersey” and because Jersey Shore was popular at the time Russo got him hired. That is a very Vince Russo story.

7# Lashley bt. Austin Aries in a "Group Champions" match (Lashley gets 3 points)

Josh and Pope reveal the Brackets for the Round of 16 which will be in Block formats with four mean in each block. Ethan Carter III faces Zema Ion and Bram faces Davey Richards in Block A. Lashley faces Drew Galloway and Shera faces Eli Drake in Block B. Tigre Uno faces Gail Kim and Eric Young faces Kenny King in Block C. Jessie Godderz faces Awesome Kong and Bobby Roode faces Matt Hardy in Block D.

3# Matt Hardy bt. Jessie Godderz in a Quarter-Final match in the World Title Series

The interview between Josh and Dixie is shown in it's entirity. Dixie says that 2015 was a year full of just about everything for TNA with some great action and controversy tooo. Dixie puts over the signing of Drew Galloway as a huge signing for TNA and then talks about the discension between she and Ethan Carter III. She says that she still believes in EC3 and knows what he is capable of but he has to get over the entitlement he feels he has and he will have to earn everything he gets from here on out. She talks about Matt Hardy and how proud she is for everything Matt has overcome. She talks about the World Title Series and says whoever wins it will have proven without a doubt that the person deserves the title. She announces that both the Semi-finals and Finals will be held on the live January 5th Impact debut on Pop. She never actually talks about the new TV deal, for obvious reasons, but that is some pretty big and surprising news.

NEXT WEEK ON IMPACT - Eddie Edwards vs. Rockstar Spud vs. Mr. Anderson vs. Bobby Roode in a fatal-4-way and also Tigre Uno, Mandrews, Manik and DJ Z vs. Mahabali Shera, Jessie Godderz, Micah, & Eli Drake

ANNOUNCERS - THE POPE & JOSH MATHEWS

The show opens with an in-depth interview with Matt Hardy and Matt Hardy recaps winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship – reaching the pinnacle of his career and achieving his dream at Bound For Glory. He moves into the World Title Series and discusses developing the Matt Hardy Formula: Bell + Wrestle + Twist of Fate = Victory. Hardy recaps his experiences against Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards and Robbie E as footage from their encounters in Group Play airs. His recollections advance to the Round of 16, where he met Bobby Roode and Robbie E. He predicts his advancement into the Finals, through his next opponent, Eric Young. Their match is scheduled LIVE on January 5, 2016, when Impact Wrestling debuts on Pop TV.

1# Group X Division (Tigre Uno, Manik, Mandrews & DJ Z) bt. Group Future 4 (Mahabali Shera, Jessie Godderz, Micah, & Eli Drake) in an 8-man tag team match
(Featured Godderz's team mates leaving him alone which led to his downfall.)

Footage airs of Lashley's encounter with Austin Aries on November 25. That match concluded with Lashley countering the 450 Splash with a Spear!

Josh Mathews and The Pope detail Lashley's prowess in TNA, from his title victory at the beginning of 2015, to his performance in the World Title Series. They both consider Lashley a favorite in the Semi-Finals and predict his victory over Ethan Carter III, LIVE on January 5, 2016, when Impact Wrestling debuts on Pop TV.

We see part 1 of an interview with EC3 and EC3 gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at his preparation for the World Title Series Semi-Finals. He discredits the World Title Series as a whole, saying it's predicated on a loss he never should have had. He goes on to say it's a loss he didn't have, before detailing why he's competitively unbeatable. Carter says both his Aunt [Dixie Carter] and Billy Corgan created the World Title Series to provide equal access to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but that they've failed to realize he's spent the past two years perfecting his craft and "being perfect." He justifies his actions over those two years – from turning back challenges from the likes of Kurt Angle or Sting, to his refusal to partake in the fight against Global Force Wrestling – as being for his own self-preservation, a trait the Carters are known for. EC3 says he's earned the right to be a one percenter, and that he'll continue winning, through the end of the World Title Series, which takes place LIVE on January 5, 2016, when Impact Wrestling debuts on Pop TV.

2# Bobby Roode bt. Mr. Anderson, Eddie Edwards & Rockstar Spud in an "All star" 4-Way Elimination match
(Order of elimination - Rockstar Spud by Eddie Edwards, Eddie Edwards by Mr. Anderson, Mr. Anderson by Bobby Roode)

Kurt Angle comments on the World Title Series final 4, Angle says the "toughest tournament in Impact Wrestling history" has been impressive, albeit tough to watch from a competitive standpoint. He says whomever is victorious will be the undisputed wrestling champion.
Angle recounts his experiences against each of the finalists throughout 2015. He says Eric Young has a solid chance at victory, but that Lashley is his favorite to win, despite the strides made by Matt Hardy and Ethan Carter III.

Eric Young recaps his year, from having the title "stolen" by Lashley, to his encounters with Bobby Roode – his former best friend. He says Roode wasn't a friend, but rather a thieving snake. Then, Young details his defeat of Roode in the World Title Series.

Footage airs from Eric Young vs. Bobby Roode's Group Play encounter on November 4.

Young says he's a world class professional wrestler that's held every major title in TNA on several occasions. He concludes by saying the World Title Series was made for him, as he assures victory on January 5, 2016, when Impact Wrestling debuts LIVE on Pop TV.

Footage airs of EC3's match against Mr. Anderson on November 11.

EC3 shares another behind-the-scenes look at his preparation regimen for the World Title Series. He recaps his matches against DJ Z and Davey Richards, saying both lost to a superior performer, despite being world class competitors. He says when he meets Lashley in the semi-finals, he'll "destroy 'The Destroyer,'" and advance to the finals of the World Title Series, which he hopes will be contested against Matt Hardy. Carter vows to righ injustice on January 5th.

All of the final four competitors take part in a roundtable discussion. Lashley says he plans to defeat EC3, but wonders whether or not it will be a one-on-one encounter, or if Tyrus will again be involved in the decision. Carter says regardless of the circumstances surrounding his victory over Lashley in the first round, that he will be victorious. He adds that, because of his prior victory, it's unfair to have to confront Lashley again.

Matt Hardy says EC3 is delusional and that he's convinced himself he has integrity. He acknowledges that before he reaches the finals, he must battle Eric Young. Hardy vows to beat the meanness and toughness out of Eric Young and set him up for a "very appropriate Twist of Fate."

Eric Young mocks that Matt Hardy "swept" his group – of tag team wrestlers. He says Hardy doesn't deserve his position, because he came from the weakest group. Unlike Hardy, Young claims to have emerged from the "Group of Death," the TNA Originals.

Josh Mathews offers a counterpoint, saying the "Group of Death" is believed to be Group Champions, from which Lashley and EC3 emerged. Eric Young says he is a champion – and that he's won every championship there has been to win. He asks if any of the other competitors have that distinction.

Hardy interrupts, saying he's undefeated in the World Title Series and adds that he'd like to face Lashley, despite Tyrus' presence favoring EC3. Likewise, Lashley says he'd like to face Matt Hardy. EC3 says he'd like to face Eric Young. Eric Young names EC3 as his finals opponent. Young adds that he's going to hurt Matt Hardy in the semi-finals and quite possibly end his career. An argument ensues an Impact Wrestling goes off the air.

DATE - TUESDAY 5TH JANUARY 2016
VENUE - SANDS BETHLEHEM EVENTS CENTER: BETHLEHEM, PA
ANNOUNCERS - THE POPE & JOSH MATHEWS

Impact Wrestling on POP TV opens with Dixie Carter in the ring holding the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and thanks all the fans live at the arena and on POP, before saying this is TNA's 15th year in existence and is committed to making this the most exciting year yet. She begins to talk about the World title until EC3 interrupted, EC3 blamed Dixie for why he lost the TNA World Heavyweight Championship but claimed tonight, he will be the undisputed world champion. Dixie told EC3 to have a long look in the mirror until Matt Hardy came out claimed it is the fans who were robbed, but tonight he will be the new world champion. Eric Young soon attacks Matt from behind and attacking him around the ring, EC3 & Tyrus also got involved in the attack until Lashley came to the ring and started clearing house with Lashley & Matt standing tall before Matt dove off the top rope with a plancha on top of EC3, Lashley & Tyrus.

1# Ethan Carter III bt. Lashley in a Semi-Final match in the World Title Series

We see a vignette hyping the debut of The Miracle tonight.

BACKSTAGE - Bobby Roode arrived in the arena and issued an open challenge tonight for any wrestler in the world, from any promotion for the TNA King of the Mountain Championship.

Kurt Angle comes to the ring and spoke of the spotlight from the last 25 years from winning a gold medal and 13 World Championships before saying TNA is the home of some of his best matches before making it known he is stepping down from TNA soon. He begins to name drop all of his former opponents from The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, AJ Styles, Lashley, Samoa Joe and says that he is dedicated to having the same calibre matches for his fareware tour and has handpicked Drew Galloway to face next week as part of his farewell tour. Galloway comes to the ring and says he is honoured to face Angle next week, Jessie Godderz interrupts and says Galloway isn't the future of wrestling, soon Eli Drake interrupts and spoke of teaming with Godderz to take out the Wolves. Angle tells both men he has a few minutes open so challenges them to get in the ring and a brawl breaks out between the 4 men with Angle & Galloway standing tall.

2# Matt Hardy bt. Eric Young in a Semi-Final match in the World Title Series
3# Bobby Roode bt. Bram to retain the TNA King of the Mountain Championship
(Post-match, EY attacked Roode from behind and despite Roode turning it around, it turned in to a 2 on 1 against EY and Bram until James Storm returned and spat beer in to Bram's face before hitting the last call on EY.)

Both Bobby Roode and "Cowboy" James Storm are in the ring and Storm spoke of leaving Impact Wrestling and being asked why, he said it was because he didn't like where he was going and said he wasn't having fun anymore. Storm said it wasn't until his granny said, "boy, this aint you" and months of travelling the world, and the fact he received the "biggest disappointment" award for the world title series that he took exception as it was guys like him who built TNA. He spoke of himself and Roode drinking a lot of beer together and making a lot of money, he grabbed Roode a beer and said "beer..", before Roode received it and said "money" before doing a toast.

BACKSTAGE - JB Interviewed the Beautiful People with a 7 1/2 months pregnant Angelina Love, they speak of the Dollhouse being down to 3 now Taryn Terrell has left TNA and as for tonight, her replacement might hate the dollhouse more than they do.

BACKSTAGE - "Cowboy" James Storm said Bram and EY made a huge mistake and this Friday on PPV, they challenge Bram and EY to a match.

4# Gail Kim & The Beautiful People (Madison Rayne & Velvet Sky) bt. The Dollhouse (Rebel, Jade & Marti Belle) in a 6-knockout tag team match
(Post-match, The Dollhouse attacked the beautiful people and Gail Kim until Awesome Kong came to the ring and ended up laying out the beautiful people and hitting the implant buster on Kim.)

The lights go out and a weird orchestra type of song begins to play. Maria appears on the stage and she welcomes us to her place of worship! She says that she is the First Lady of Pro Wrestling and she bears witness to the fans pain and all the fans hope that someone will come and save pro wrestling! She says today is the fans most blessed day because the fans Miracle is here! She says that she believes in Miracles and this Miracle's name is Mike Bennett. Bennett came out and described himself as an international superstar, a real life super hero, and the "baddest Mofo on the show", and Pro Wrestling's Jesus. He went on further so say how pro wrestling used to be fun but he will change all that and says the true miracle will be when he holds the TNA World Heavyweight Championship over his head.

BACKSTAGE - Drew Galloway thanks Angle for the opportunity to get in the ring with him, Angle says that he isn't take it lightly before the Wolves approach him and claim they haven't faced Angle either so they suggested a tag team drew match on PPV this Friday with the Wolves vs. Kurt Angle & Drew Galloway, Jessie Godderz & Eli Drake walk up and want in on the match so they agreed to let them be apart of the match.

5# Ethan Carter III bt. Matt Hardy in the Final match of the World title series to become the NEW TNA World Heavyweight Champion
(Pre-match, Jeff Hardy says he believes in his brother enough to walk away but asks if Tyrus believes in his boss to as well. Tyrus just says "cool" and walks to the back as EC3 looks confused as hell. )
