Raven vs. Frankie Kazarian This isn't listed on TNA's website, but they mentioned it during Impact -- maybe it'll be on the preshow? Anyway, Kazarian wins -- I would have thought he'd have matches with Havoc and Martyr before Raven, but maybe they want to get Kaz into the X Division singles scene ASAP (it could use him).
Motor City Machine Guns vs. XXX vs. Dutt & Lethal Boy, both MCMG and XXX could us a win here. I'll say XXX, with interference from their 3rd member, pinning either Dutt or Lethal.
Chris Harris vs. "Black Reign" Dustin Rhodes Boring boring boring and I guess Rhodes has to win.
LAX vs. VKM Man, it BETTER be LAX. (I think they'll bring in Nidia to counter Roxxi.)
Eric Young vs. Robert Roode - Humiliation Match Oh MAN I can't believe this is still going on -- and I haven't been able to believe it for MONTHS. Young, I guess.
Rhino vs. James Storm - Barroom Brawl Again, I've lost track of where we are in this storyline. Let's say Rhino.
Steiner Brothers vs. 3D 3D, maybe with a rematch next month with the belts on the line.
Christian Cage, Tomko, and AJ Styles vs. Abyss, Sting, and A-Mart Six Sides of Steel -- barbed wire across the top -- person must be bleeding to be pinned -- pinner gets title shot -- I think that covers it. Um. I think Sting wins, but I'm not wedded to it.
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe - Winner Take All Angle wins, due to interference by 3D and Dr. Kevin Nash. Angle will show his appreciation by spreading the gold around, awarding the tag belts to 3D and the X belt to Nash. Joe will get a rematch at Bound for Glory.

Raven v. Kazarian Pending this match actually happens, of course. Kazarian gets the win. I love Raven to death, but he's look absolutely ancient lately and I think it's time for him to slither off into the sunset. WINNER: KAZARIAN
Motor City Machine Guns v. XXX v. Dutt & Lethal All of these guys need wins, but XXX have a third member, so they'll win by HEINOUS methods. I could really get behind a XXX/MCMG feud. WINNERS: XXX
Chris Harris v. "Platinum Rain" Dustin Rhodes Dustin Rhodes is absolutely worthless to this company. No way they'd sacrifice a TNA mainstay for this clown, but crazier things have happened. Still, I think Harris dispatches of him quickly. WINNER: CHRIS HARRIS
LAX v. VKM If Thursday's Impact was any indication, this could get very ugly. Billy Gunn didn't look enthusiastic about selling for Homicide and the match DRAGGED as a result. I think LAX goes over, but the Outlaws will really dog it as a result. WINNER: LAX
Eric Young v. Robert Roode - Humiliation Match Why are these two STILL feuding?! WINNER: Eric Young
Rhino v. James Storm - Barroom Brawl Is it me or has Rhino become...well...lame, as a result of this storyline. Who knew beer was the man's weakness? I thought Rhino's appeal was that he was supposed to be this huge badass, not a guy shrivels up when he gets some beer on him. I don't think things get better for him here. WINNER: James Storm
Steiner Brothers v. Team 3D Does ANYONE think Scott's ready to come back? He wasn't exactly wrestling like a superstar before his injury and 21st Century Rick could NEVER carry a tag match on his own, much less against the Dudz. I predict the fans will turn on this match VICIOUSLY. Oh, and 3D wins when Bubba hits Scott in the trachea with Ye Olde Foreign Object. WINNERS: Team 3D
Christian Cage, Tomko & AJ Styles v. Abyss, Sting & "The Punisher" Frank Castle Andrew Martin These rules are more complicated than the tax code! Cage wins when Mitchell's new guy run makes Abyss bleed like a stuck pig. WINNERS: Christian Cage, Tomko & AJ Styles
Kurt Angle v. Samoa Joe - Winner Take All Remember the Austin/Rock vibe everyone got from the first time these two faced off? Yeah, that vibe is LOOOONG gone. Joe really needs to go over, because seriously, how many times can the guy go after the big belt and come up empty? Joe will overcome 3D interference and finally get that elusive title match win. WINNER: Samoa Joe
The Wisdom of Homsar: Oh no! You shanked my Jengaship!
