Knockout Championship: Miss Tessmacher def. Tara
In a No Surrender rematch, Miss Tessmacher will successfully defend her title once again against Tara. There's no question that Tara is a solid veteran for TNA to have on the Knockout roster, but Miss Tessmacher deserves a little more time in the sun with the title.
Tessmacher has been involved in the Knockout title match in every pay-per-view since Sacrifice back in May, and there's a reason for that. She's one of the division's biggest new stars and she deserves to come out on top of this feud the way she did in her rivalry with Gail Kim over the summer. Expect TNA to keep one of their top women's babyfaces with the title.
Tag Team Match: Aces & 8s def. Sting and Bully Ray
In the latest attempt to rip off WCW's old nWo storyline, Aces & 8s have to defeat Sting and Bully Ray for this story to get interesting. Hulk Hogan's hand-picked duo are two of the promotion's bigger names, that's true, but the stipulations make this an obvious win for the opposition.
If Ace & 8s lose, they'll be banned from TNA, which would be a pretty anticlimactic end to this storyline filled with kidnappings, jumping people and messing with the World Title scene.
If the mysterious group wins, however, they'll have full access to TNA, thus creating some interesting possibilities. It should prove to be one of the more entertaining matches of the night, but it would make no sense to have the fan favorites win this bout.
World Heavyweight Championship: Austin Aries def. Jeff Hardy
While TNA has given Hardy much more time in the upper echelon of their company than his previous employer, Aries just hasn't held the title long enough to lose it just yet.
Aries went through much of the summer battling things out against former champion Bobby Roode and to have him drop the belt immediately after winning that feud makes no sense.
Given the similar size of both of these wrestlers, Aries and Hardy can have a great match at this PPV and down the road as well. The best way to keep people interested in those matches down the road is to have Hardy in his familiar role as underdog to Aries as champion. For that reason, expect Aries to retain on Oct. 14.
