Jarrett poses by ring ropes holding up is guitar in his right hand while getting a large batch of cheers from the crowd.
BORASH: "And lastly, weighing in tonight at 235 lbs., he comes to us from Gainesville, GA and is the current reigning TNA Heavyweight Champion of the world, this is the "Phenomenal" AJ Styles." Styles takes the hood out off his head, stretches out his arms and poses with the TNA Heavyweight Title belt around his waist.
After Styles releases the title belt to the referee and the referee holds it up for display, Styles goes right for Orton and Styles and Orton both goes sailing over the top rope to the outside. While in the ring, Michaels and Jarrett begin to trade back and forth right hands. On the outside, Styles mounts Orton on the floor and begins to punch Orton senseless with both right and left punches. Styles then picks Orton up and whips Orton but Orton reverses and whips Styles back first into the corner of the barricade wall but AJ is able counter and hop onto the top of the barricade wall and is able to turn around and hit Orton with a flying clothesline off the top of the barricade railing.
Meanwhile in the ring, Michaels gets the upper hand on Jarrett and kicks Jarrett into the corner. In the corner, Michaels tops Jarrett and begins to punch the head of Jarrett with the crowd chanting "1...2...3...4...5..." but before HBK can punch Jarrett for a sixth time in the corner, Jarrett grabs Michaels and flapjacks Michaels face first into the top turnbuckle. Jarrett then turns HBK around in the corner and begins to deliv er knifedge chops to the chest of Michaels. But after five chops, HBK is able to counter Jarrett and deliver knifedge chops of his own to Jarrett in the corner with the crowd "Whooooo-ing" with each chop delivered. HBK then whips Jarrett into the opposite corner of the ring acrossed the ring but Jarrett reverses and whips HBK into the corner following it up with a hip toss.
On the outside, AJ picks up Orton and drops Orton chest first onto the announce table and then rolls Orton back into the ring. As AJ gets up onto the apron and steps through the rope to come back into the ring, Orton kicks AJ in the shoulder following that up with that spike DDT of Orton's with AJ hanging off the second rope. Orton goes for the pin but AJ kicks out. After the pin attempt, Orton picks AJ up and begins to punch AJ with short forearm shots to AJ's skull. Orton then whips AJ off the ropes and rebound AJ with a perfectly done dropkick to the jaw of AJ. Orton goes for the pin again but AJ kicks out again. Orton then grabs AJ and throws AJ shoulder first into the steel ring post and AJ then falls to the floor on the outside.
After disposing of AJ, Orton now turns his attention on Jarrett. With Jarrett stomping HBK in the corner, Orton grabs Jarrett to turn Jarrett around and as Orton does, Orton tries to hit Jarrett with a RKO but Jarrett blocks and shoves Orton down to the mat. Meanwhile, HBK is able to crawl towards Jarrett and HBK gets a small roll up on Jarrett for the pin but Jarrett is able to kick out. Then as both Michaels and Jarrett gets up, Jarrett spints towards HBK but Michaels counters Jarrett by backdropping Jarrett over the top rope to the outside. Orton then sprints towards HBK as well but HBK is able to side step Orton and Orton sails over the top rope and crashes onto Jarrett on the outside.
Michaels then taunts Jarrett and Orton by giving the "SUCK IT!" sign to them but in all the while, Styles comes back and hops onto the top rope to hit a forearm smash to HBK when he turns around. When HBK turns around AJ leaps off the top rope to strike but in a split second, HBK hits AJ with Sweet Chin Music out of mid-air just like that. Michaels gets the pinfall on Styles and just like that the defending TNA Heavyweight Champion is the first to be eliminated. So now we are guaranteed a new TNA Heavyweight Champion.
After the elimination of AJ and with both Orton and Jarrett on the outside, HBK goes to the top rope and hits a moonsault to Orton and Jarrett on the outside. After 19 seconds of neither of the three individuals moving, HBK finally gets up while picking Jarrett up and then HBK hard irish whips Jarrett into the steel ring steps. HBK then goes over, grabs Orton, and tosses Orton back into the ring. With Orton laid flat in the ring, HBK goes back up top and scores with an elbow drop to the heart of Orton. HBK then nips up and runs around the ring getting ready to set up for Sweet Chin Music.
As HBK tries to hit Sweet Chin to Orton when Orton stands to his feet, Orton ducks the kick of HBK and hits HBK with that inverted backbreaker of his. Orton then goes for the cover but HBK kicks out. Orton then stands up and begins to stomp every square inch of Michaels. After stomping HBK, Orton drops a high knee drop to the forehead of HBK. Orton goes for another pin but HBK gets a shoulder up still.
Orton then gets poised to strike with a RKO to HBK when he stands. At the same time, Jarrett is able to crawl back into the ring. When HBK stands up, Orton goes for the RKO on Michaels but HBK counter and shoves Orton off and with help from Jarrett, Jarrett throws Orton over the top rope to the outside. After Jarrett threw Orton to the outside, Michaels gets ready to deliver Sweet Chin Music to Jarrett. When Jarrett turns around, HBK tries to kick Jarrett's head off but somehow Jarrett blocks the kick, turns HBK around and hits the Stroke on Michaels. Jarrett then gets the pin on HBK for the elimination. Now its down to Orton and Jarrett for the Championship.
Jarrett then goes outside for Orton after eliminating Shawn Michaels. As Jarrett picks Orton up, Orton counters by kicking Jarrett in the guy following it with a DDT to Jarrett on the floor. After DDT-ing Jarrett on the floor, Orton tosses Jarrett back into the ring. With Jarrett back in the ring, Orton goes up top to the top rope. When Jarrett stands to his feet, Orton hits a cross body to Jarrett followed by a pin attempt in the progress but Jarrett kicks out. The crowd now begins to get in the match as they starts to chant "LETS GO JARRETT, LETS GO ORTON."
When both Jarrett and Orton get to their feet, they begin to trade right fists with each other back and forth. As Orton is gaining the advantage over Jarrett with the right hands, Jarrett from nowhere, blocks the rights of Orton's, drops Orton, and applies the figure four leg lock onto Orton. Orton is screaming in pain but after a minute and nine seconds in the leg lock, Orton is able to get to the bottom rope. After Orton uses the ropes to get to his feet, Jarrett hits the Stroke to Orton. As the referee is pinning the shoulders of Orton by the pin attempt from Jarrett after hitting the Stroke, Legacy members, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase comes out and pulls the referee Rudy Charles out of the ring from making the three count.
With Rhodes and DiBiase taunting Jarrett from the outside, Team 3D comes out and begins to fight DiBiase and Rhodes into the crowd and away from the ring. However, Orton is able to get up from the Stroke and hits a low blow to Jarrett. After hitting the low blow to Jarrett, Orton moves into a corner to get ready to punt Jarrett's head off. Right before Orton goes to punt Jarrett, the lights suddenly go off in the arena. When the lights come back on, the WWE Champion Sting is on the apron of the ring and smashes Orton over the head with his black baseball bat. With Orton dazed, Jarrett gets up and hits a second Stroke to Orton. Sting then grabs the ref and throws him back into the ring. After a very long 3 count, Orton is pinned and the "King of the Mountain" Jeff Jarrett becomes the new TNA Heavyweight Champion of the world.
As the PPV goes off the air, Sting walks up to the top of the ramp way and points his black baseball bat right at Randy Orton.
