Watch The Match:
This was a three way for the X Division title between 3 of TNA’s most talented athletes. Petey Williams, Chris Sabin, and A.J. Styles squared off in the greatest Ultimate X match ever.
The match begins with all three men squaring off in the ring and the crowd can feel the electricity in the air. They know something awesome is going to happen. Styles and Sabin team up on Williams in the beginning.
Sabin and Styles begin work on each other as Williams is knocked to the outside.
All three men begin to wear each other down and one up one another. About five minutes into the match A.J. dives to the outside on top of his two opponents. Chants of "TNA" and "Holy Sh*t" begin.
Styles is the first to go up to the rope, but Sabin catches him. Both men are perched on the top rope as Sabin jumps up and drop kicks A.J. into the steal pillar right behind the top rope. Sabin then tries to scale the rope to the X Division Championship but is pulled down by Scott D’more, Team Canada’s leader. He is then thrown out from ringside.
With his manager gone Petey has a fire lit under his a** and begin to take the offense to Styles and Sabin. The pace of this match refuses to slow down as all three men continue with the fast paced offense. Styles enters the ring again and scales the wire, but is tanked down by Williams.
Sabin is kept on the outside as Williams and Styles continue to do battle. Styles hits the Pele on Petey. The match continues to race at an uncontrollable pace.
At one point Chris Sabin is on top of Styles shoulders and Petey is scaling the wire and Williams jumps down into a hurricanrana on both A.J. and Sabin. Williams continues to dominate the match has he desperately tries to retain his X Division title.
Williams again scales the wire and just as he is about to win A.J. Styles jumps of the top rope and hits Williams with a flying arm bar to knock him away from the title back onto the mat below.
The finish came when both Williams and Sabin had unhooked the belt and when pulling it back and forth and out of nowhere A.J. Jumps from the top rope and knocks the belt down onto the floor to win the match and the X Division Championship.
This match is what TNA was supposed to be about. This is why I love TNA. The X Division use to be the best part of TNA and this match is a great example.
