Wrestling News World reader Tyler Roberts attended Friday’s TNA live event in Florence, South Carolina and sent in the following report:
I came early and went to the meet and greet, which had about 100 people in line. Most all talent that was here tonight were signing for the fans. Christopher Daniels was the best guy and stayed in character while talking to me and my son, telling my son that he doesn’t like AJ Styles. My son asked me if he was kidding, and I said “yes.” Daniels, in true heel form, said “No, I’m not kidding. Don’t let your parents lie to you.” I’d estimate attendance is at about 1,000 people.
The meet and greet consisted of about 75-100 people, and featured Tara, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Robbie E, Robbie T, Jeff Hardy, Chavo Guerrero, Hernandez, James Storm, and Joseph Park. The show started at 7:30.
* Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez b. Christopher Daniels & Kazarian to retain the TNA Tag Team Championships. Chavo got the win with a frog splash.
* Velvet Sky b. Tara in a non-title match with the In Yo Face.
* Joseph Park b. Robbie E with a splash from the second rope.
* DOC b. Magnus when another member of Aces & Eights hit Magnus from behind with a hammer.
* Bobby Roode b. James Storm. After the match, Storm hit Roode with the Last Call.
* Jeff Hardy b. Austin Aries in a steel cage match to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. After the match, Hardy took ringside photos with the fans for $20. He was the most over guy on the show.
