Angle, Roode prevail at No Surrender
By MATT BISHOP - SLAM! Wrestling




After several months of action, the Bound For Glory series finally concludes tonight at No Surrender as Bully Ray, James Storm, Bobby Roode and Gunner compete to see who will become the No. 1 contender the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, facing the winner of the championship main event between Kurt Angle, Sting and Mr. Anderson at Bound For Glory.

Three days after being taken out by Immortal, Mr. Anderson and Sting each looked to regain the World Heavyweight Championship in the main event against Kurt Angle.

Sting and Anderson's loose alliance was evident in the early-going as both men combined to beat Angle down and send him reeling to the outside. With Angle out of the way, the two had no problem going at it themselves. Angle quickly found himself back in the mix and it was Anderson on the outs. That turned into Anderson and Angle going at it. All three men ended back up in the ring with Angle giving Anderson and Sting a German suplex at the same time.

Anderson goes for a Mic Check but Angle counters and hits the triple Germans. Now Angle grabs Sting and delivers three Germans to him, as well. Angle throws Anderson off the top for a two and then goes for an Angle Slam on Sting but Sting slips out and sends Angle flying over the top. Sting goes for the Scorpion Death Lock and has it on Anderson. Angle back in and he delivers an Angle Slam to Sting for two and then one to Anderson for two.

Angle goes and puts Sting in the ankle lock. Sting is able to roll out and he thrusts Angle with into the Mic Check. He kicks out at the last possible moment. That might've been 2 8/7 on that one. Sting grabs Anderson and delivers the Death Drop but Angle pulls Sting out of the ring and throws him into the barricade where Hulk Hogan is residing. Hogan sprays something into Sting's eyes. Sting gets back into the ring blinded and tries to give the Death Drop to the referee but Angle low blows him and gives him the Angle Slam and that's it.

Winner via pinfall and STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Kurt Angle

Match Rating: 6/10
