I didn't see these posted here yet, so here goes ... straight from nwatna.com ...
NWA: Total Nonstop Action for October 22nd began with a tribute to Stu Hart and Road Warrior Hawk.
Sonny Siaki, Ekmo & Legend, with Trinity, vs. 3 Live Kru (Konnan, Ron Killings & BG James) was up first. Siaki and Trinity were not getting along as they came to the ring. Later in the match, Siaki suplexed James, and held him for Trinity, but James moved and Trinity hit Siaki with a missile dropkick. James then hit Siaki with a pumphandle slam for the win!
Scott Hudson then interviewed Jeff Jarrett, who would face AJ Styles for the NWA Championship later in the night. Jarrett said Vince Russo stood in his way, so he took him out of the equation. Dusty Rhodes approached Jarrett, but Jarrett said he didn't have time for him. Dusty talked about Jarrett taking down Hogan and Russo, and said he would be watching Jarrett's back tonight. Jarrett said that his eyes had been opened by Rhodes, and that he would be watching everyone tonight, not trusting anyone.
Kid Kash vs. TNA newcomer Sonjay Dutt was up next. Dutt showed off some amazing X style offense, but in the end Kash stopped him and hit a suplex into a Michinoku Driver off the middle rope on Dutt for the win.
Post-match, Kash rubbed Dutt's face in the mat until Abyss ran out and Kash took off. Dutt thanked Abyss for saving him, but Abyss gave him the Black Hole Slam and chased after Kash.
Backstage, Scott Hudson tried to interview Sonny Siaki, who along with Ekmo, Trinity and Legend, were unable to get into the locker room, because AJ Styles had apparently locked them out. Siaki said it was in their best interest for Styles to retain the title tonight.
NWA World Tag Team Champions Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger, with Glenn Gilberti and David Young faced TNA newcomers Roadkill and Danny Doring. During the bout, we saw that America's Most Wanted were watching the match backstage. Later in the match, Roadkill was able to hit Swinger with a side slam, and Doring then used Roadkill as a springboard to dive onto Gilberti and Young on the floor. Roadkill slammed Diamond, but missed a top rope splash. Diamond and Swinger then hit the Problem Solver (elevated DDT) on Roadkill to retain the titles.
A paid advertisement from Shane Douglas aired, showing Shane talking while surrounded by two busty babes. Douglas was talking to someone, saying if he were impressive in the X-Division match tonight, he would be introduced as the newest member of Douglas' Franchise next week. Shane shook mystery man's hand, but we never saw who it was!
X-Division Champion Michael Shane vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Chris Sabin was up next. Sabin and Daniels teamed up against Shane at first, but soon turned on each other. Shane Douglas was shown watching the match from the balcony, perhaps taking notes on his new prospect, whoever it was. The match ended when Michael Shane ended up shoving the referee into Sabin, then hit a superkick for the pin.
Scott Hudson interviewed Jim Mitchell, with Slash, about their Dog Collar match with Raven later on. Mitchell claimed that Raven did something to him long before either of them came to TNA, and that Mitchell was getting vengeance for what Raven had done. Mitchell said that Raven's destiny is for failure.
Mike Tenay was in the ring, and said that they would address the rumors regarding Hulk Hogan and Bound For Glory. He introduced Jimmy Hart, who said that people have been asking him all day about Hulk Hogan coming to TNA. Hart then revealed that Hogan has signed with TNA. Hart then talked about Jeff Jarrett's attack on Hulk Hogan, saying Hogan hurt his knee when Jarrett attacked him. Hart said that Hogan was going to undergo knee surgery, and that Hogan's PPV appearance at "Bound For Glory" (as well as the PPV itself) was going to be rescheduled. Jimmy Hart then said he had a question for Jeff Jarrett, and asked why Jarrett layed down in the ring at Bash At The Beach and let Hulk Hogan beat him on what should have been the biggest night of his life.
Jeff Jarrett came out on the stage and told Jimmy Hart never to bring up that incident. Hart said he still wanted to know why, and that the fans deserved to know as well. The fans started chanting "Why?" at Jarrett. Mike Tenay said he wanted to know why as well. Jarrett came to the ring, and said that Hulk Hogan wants to know why as well. Jarrett said the he was about to tell everyone why, then he attacked Hart instead. Jarrett beat down Hart, ripping off his shirt, then whipped Jimmy with a leather belt. Jarrett mocked Hulk Hogan's poses as he whipped him. Jarrett looked into the camera and screamed for Hogan. Security tried to come in, but Jarrett knocked them away. AJ Styles ran in, and Jarrett took off, with Styles in pursuit.
Slash, with Jim Mitchell, vs. Raven in a dog collar match was up next. Late in the bout, Raven went for a DDT, but Slash blocked it and hit a Death Valley Driver. Slash then hit Raven with the chain in the corner. Slash went to hit him again, but Raven ducked, spun Slash around by pulling the chain, and hit the DDT for the win. Post match, Raven hung Slash over the top rope, then grabbed Mitchell in a cobra clutch. Vampiro ran in and attacked, spitting mist at Raven. CM Punk and Julio Dinero ran in to help their mentor, but Mitchell and Vampiro retreated, while Raven told Punk and Dinero he didn't want their help.
Scott Hudson interviewed Don Callis. Callis said he was going to reschedule "Bound For Glory" as soon as possible. Callis was asked about Roddy Piper returning, since Vince Russo was in the hospital. Callis said Piper would not be back. Callis said he didn't care about D'Lo Brown and Jerry Lynn leaving, and had Red Shirt Security hold up a D'Lo Brown bobblehead doll. Don Callis then seemed intrigued that Goldylocks had returned.
The Naturals (Andy Douglas & Chase Stevens), with Glen Gilberti & David Young, vs. America's Most Wanted was up next. Following a tremendous bout, Gilberti once again interfered and held Harris' leg down as Stevens got the pin. Erik Watts, with Goldylocks, came out and had the match restarted. In the end, Harris hit a flying bodypress on Stevens for the pin, thus keeping AMW in contention for the NWA Tag Team Title.
Later, Raven interrupted an on-camera with Mike Tenay and Don West, saying that Roddy Piper and Greg Valentine put the dog collar match on the map, but he was taking it to the next level. Raven said next week he would face Vampiro in a match where there would be four dog collars, each attached to a chain in the corner. Raven said the winner would be the first person to attach a dog collar around their opponent's neck, toss them over the top rope, and hang them until they are unconscious.
Scott Hudson interviewed AJ Styles. Styles said he did not visit Vince Russo at the hospital because he told Russo not to do anything stupid, and he did. Styles said that tonight, he will show why he is phenomenal. Sonny Siaki, Ekmo, Legend and Trinity approached Styles, saying they had his back tonight. Styles told them to stay out of his way and walked out.
It was then time for the main event, as NWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles faced Jeff Jarrett. Jeff Jarrett brought a couple of chairs into the ring with him as he entered, and wouldn't let Styles in. Don Callis and Erik Watts came out and tried to convince Jarrett and Styles (who also grabbed a chair) to discard the weapons. The finally did so, and the match began. During the title match, Sonny Siaki came to ringside, but Erik Watts blocked him. Dusty Rhodes came down and gave Siaki the bionic elbow. Rhodes wrapped a bullrope around Siaki's neck and dragged him through the crowd and out the front door. Styles hit Jarrett with a low blow, then put Jarrett on the chair so his head was sticking out the back. Styles went for a top rope legdrop, but Jarrett moved. Jarrett then caught a Styles spinkick and hit the Stroke on the chair for a two count. Jarrett grabbed the title belt, with Erik Watts protesting, and Styles rolled him up for two. Jarrett kicked out, and Styles bumped into the referee. Jarrett then hit Styles with the title belt, and got the pin to become the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion!
Don Callis seemed ecstatic that Jarrett had won. Mike Tenay went in to interview Jarrett, who bragged about his victory. Jimmy Hart appeared on the screen, and said Jarrett had given him a "wakeup call". Hart said Jarrett would "lose a pint of blood" next week, as he had placed a call to someone he used to manage, and that person would be in TNA next week to take care of Jarrett!
