Young retains at TNA Sacrifice


Eric Young is still the TNA World Heavyweight Champion following Monday’s Sacrifice pay-per-view.

Young was successful in his first title defence, defeating former-champ Magnus in the night’s main event.

Both men looked capable of ending the match at any moment as they traded signature moves back and forth over the course of the bout.

Magnus eventually grew frustrated with Young’s resiliency though, and attempted to bring a crowbar into the ring.

Referee Brian Hebner snatched the weapon out of Magnus’ hands and left the Brit open for a piledriver from Young.

Magnus was able to kick out of Young’s pinning attempt, but a second piledriver followed by a top-rope elbow drop from Young was too much to take, and Magnus stayed down for the three-count to hand Young the victory.

While the World Heavyweight Championship remained around Eric Young’s waist, two other titles would change hands at Sacrifice.

The Wolves, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, reclaimed the TNA tag team titles against the odds in a three-on-two handicap match against the BroMans and DJ Zema Ion.

DJ Z accidentally hit Jessie Godderz with his laptop computer to ruin the cohesiveness of his team, and the Wolves followed up with a pair of top-rope double-stomps to recapture the tag team titles.

Angelina Love became the new Knockouts Champion with the help of Velvet Sky, bending the rules significantly to defeat Madison Rayne.

Sky distracted the referee as only she could while passing a can of hairspray to Love in the ring. Love then unleashed the spray, temporarily blinding Rayne, before a roll-up sealed the deal and netted the Beautiful People the Knockouts Championship once again.

TNA Sacrifice is available on YouTube at a cost of $51.49.
