Steel Cage Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Champion Magnus vs. Samoa Joe
Events leading to this match: During a recent edition of IMPACT WRESTLING, there was a tag team match pitting Magnus and Ethan Carter III against Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle. The stipulations were that if the team of Magnus and Ethan Carter III won then their opponents would be foreced to leave the company. Another stipulation of the match was that if the team of Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle won then the man that scored the winning fall would earn this title shot. Since Samoa Joe won the match for his team, he earned this title shot.
Lethal Lockdown Match: Team MVP (MVP, Jeff Hardy & The Wolves [Eddie Edwards & Davey Richards]) vs. Team Dixie (Bobby Roode, Austin Aries & The BroMans [Jessie Godderz & Robbie E])
Rules of the match: The match starts out with one man from each team for five minutes. Then a wrestler from one team will enter the match. Every two minutes another wrestler will enter the ring, however one team will always have the odd-man advantage. The odd-man advantage has yet to be determined. Once all eight men have entered the match, a roof with weapons hanging on it will be lowered on top of the cage. Only at this point, the match can end via pin fall or submission.
Events leading to this match: MVP has recently bought a stake in the company and as the new investor, he has a problem with the way TNA President Dixie Carter has been running things. Neither want to work with one another so this match will result in one of them losing their stake in the company. Bobby Roode was about to announce his retirement but was lured back into action by Dixie Carter who offered him a 10% stake in the company if he led Team Dixie to victory.
Kurt Angle vs. Ethan Carter III
Events leading to this match: Ethan Carter is the nephew of TNA President Dixie Carter and the two have been making life difficult for the Olympic gold medalist. This match is in jeopardy due to an attack by EC3 that left Kurt Angle with an injured knee.

Last Man Standing Match: Gunner vs. James Storm
Rules of the match: The only way to win this match is to incapacitate your opponent so they can not stand on their feet by the time the referee counts to 10.
