Xplosion – February 22nd, 2012
From the iMPACT Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida
Announced by Jeremy Borash and Mike Tenay
Television Championship Match
Eric Young vs. Robbie E (c).
Young accompanied by ODB, while Robbie E is joined by Robbie T.
Brian Hebner has already dodged a tie-up with Young during Robbie E’s entrance, but Young goes for another to start the match. He performs the fist-pump chant, causing Robbie E to run at him, and delivers a couple of hip toss’ and an arm drag before Robbie goes to the floor and flirts with ODB. Young sees the flirting and goes to break it up, but Robbie T smashes him from behind.
We come back from the break mid-pin but Robbie only gets a two count on Young. Young is sent off the ropes, and elbowed in the face. Back for a pin, and another two. Robbie fist-pumps towards ODB again, then sending Young to the floor. Robbie T comes looking to take advantage, but ODB prevents it, with Hebner coming out to separate the two. The fight between Young and Robbie E ensues behind them, and Young gets the upperhand with a right to the face, but Robbie gets a kick to the midsection. Robbie chokes Young with the bottom rope before throwing him back into the ring and giving him an elbow drop. Robbie to the middle rope, and flying elbow to the face of Young, but again, only a two count from the pin.
Into a headlock, tightening the grip as Young gains momentum back up. Young cut off again with a thigh to the gut. Robbie sends him off to the corner, Young flips out onto the apron, elbows the oncoming Robbie E, slides through his legs and a HUGE belly-to-belly suplex, taking it out of both combatants.
Young finally gets his breath, and pulls his pants down to reveal leopard-print Speedo’s! Bodyslam… to the top rope, flying elbow drop and a pin, but the referee is distracted by Robbie T. ODB then joins him, confronts him with a few pats of her assets, but this distracts Young also, and Robbie E rolls Young up for the 3-count!
Winner, and still TV Champion, Robbie E via Pinfall.
