On Sunday, September 9, TNA Wrestling presented its annual No Surrender pay-per-view, live from the Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. Throughout the pay-per-view, Aces and Eights made their presence felt throughout the show by brawling with the TNA roster and nearly forcing General Manager Hulk Hogan to change the course of the Bound For Glory Series.
Here are the complete match results and thoughts.
Jeff Hardy defeated Samoa Joe in the Bound For Glory Series semifinal match.
Joe has a very good run in the Bound For Glory Series. Although it would have been nice to see Joe advance to the finals, the win for Hardy provides important significance to his career, as Jeff has done nicely since his return healthy to TNA late last year.
Bully Ray defeated James Storm in the Bound For Glory Series semifinal match.
Once Bobby Roode appeared, it was game over for Storm's run toward the finals. It appears TNA is going with a Roode and Storm feud leading into Bound For Glory. The end result of this match was a bit of a shock, but Ray certainly deserved the victory, as he is truly the best heel in professional wrestling today.
Miss Tessmacher defeated Tara to retain the TNA Knockouts title.
Having Miss Tessmacher defeated Tara helps her run as the Knockouts champion, as she was able to win against a respected veteran.
Zema Ion defeated Sonjay Dutt to retain the TNA X Division title.
On recent editions of Impact! Wrestling, it seemed the X Division was no longer being focused on. Ion winning to retain his title came as no surprise, as there was simply no need to take the belt off of him.
Christopher Daniels and Kazarian defeated AJ Styles and Kurt Angle to retain the TNA Tag Team titles.
Daniels and Kazarian are really developing into one of professional wrestling's best heel tag teams. Although Styles and Angle make a fun tag-team to watch, TNA did right to keep the belts on Daniels and Kazarian.
Jeff Hardy defeated Bully Ray in the Bound For Glory Series Finals match.
With the victory, Hardy moves on to face Austin Aries for the TNA Heavyweight Championship at Bound For Glory. This was another terrific win for Hardy, as he has the chance to capture the title against Aries. Hardy winning the Bound For Glory Series was a shock, as he was nearly out of the picture weeks ago until his most recent surge in the standings. This was a good, solid match to conclude No Surrender.
