Let Michael Pass For The Championship VideoLET MICHAEL PASS FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP THUG LIFE
Team 3D won the first match and chose a Tables match, The Hardys won the second match and chose a ladder match, and The Wolves won the third match on the No Surrender episode of Impact Wrestling, tying them all at one win each.
A final match to decide the series took place, and was won by The Wolves. After The Wolves vacated the tag team championship due to an injury to Eddie Edwards, an Ultimate X match was held for the title at the March 16 Impact Wrestling tapings.
Anderson to win the match and the title. Broken Matt climbed the ladder and grabbed the contract, following Nero sacrificing himself by jumping off the ladder and onto Trevor Lee.
Broken Matt turned babyface during this encounter when King Maxel was almost kidnapped by Decay and when Brother Nero took a hit from Abyss' spiked bat, and Broken Matt healed him via the Lake of Restoration.
The Hardys would then face The Tribunal one week later, on October 20's broadcast where they were able to successfully defend their titles.
However, after the match as they returned to the dressing-rooms, the arena went dark, signalling the arrival of a new faction, dubbed the DCC.
The DCC would use the darkness to attack and layout The Tribunal as The Hardys looked on from the ramp, thus potentially building an upcoming rivalry in weeks to comes.
On February 27, , The Hardys announced their departure from TNA after negotiations of a new contract fell through.
Beginning in April , the brothers reunited on the independent circuit. In , the Hardys embarked on a tour of various independent promotions—while still reigning as TNA World Tag Team Champions—which was promoted on Impact Wrestling as the "Expedition of Gold," where they sought to win other tag team titles in order to declare themselves as the "greatest tag team in all of space and time".
Although some debate remains whether it was six or seven championships held at one time, the contracts of Broken Matt Hardy and Brother Nero Jeff Hardy expired with TNA Wrestling on February 27, at midnight after negotiations were stalled by the company.
They offered to drop the titles the following week on the next set of television tapings but TNA's new parent company, Anthem, declined. They then lost the titles back to The Young Bucks in a ladder match on April 1 at Supercard of Honor XI , to which after the match, Jeff was noted as staying in the ring and saying "We'll fade away and classify ourselves as obsolete", paying homage to their "Broken" characters.
It was also announced after the match that both Matt and Jeff Hardy's contracts had expired. The Broken Hardy storyline was abruptly dropped without explanation following a new set of television tapings between March 2—5, The Hardys did not appear on the Thursday, March 9 airing of Impact Wrestling and there was no reference to the TNA tag team titles, but the Broken Hardys were last seen broadcast in their compound using Vanguard-1 to teleport them with the TNA World Tag Team Championship belts to their next location, only for Decay to appear through teleportation with the belts with Rosemary declaring the Broken Hardys, "deleted, obsolete, and decay!
Playing upon the Hardys phrase of "greatest tag team in all of space and time", he said that four teams would wrestle in two weeks to crown new tag team champions.
They then began jokingly questioning the arena about who the mystery team could be, before the Hardy Boyz's made their entrance to the stage to a massive ovation from the crowd.
After the match, they were attacked by Cesaro and Sheamus. The next night on Raw , the villainous Cesaro and Sheamus would explain their actions, claiming the fans were more supportive of 'novelty acts' from the past like The Hardy Boyz, who they feel didn't deserve to be in the match at WrestleMania.
In September, Jeff suffered a torn rotator cuff and would be out of action for four to six months, leaving Matt to begin a run as a singles competitor.
On the November 27 episode of Raw , after suffering a loss to Bray Wyatt , Matt sat in the corner and began shouting "delete" repeatedly. This was the beginning of "Woken" gimmick, a variation of the "Broken" gimmick from TNA, which led to a feud between Matt and Bray that last up to the "Ultimate Deletion" at the Hardy compound, where Jeff Hardy made his return.

Alabama 3 - LSU 0, Alabama set up for a field goal on the 31 and Saban went for the fake—and got the first down!
Jefferson just can't get anything going on offense. Fortunately for the Tigers, Brad Wing has been unleashing some long punts tonight.
He kicks a yarder and Alabama takes over on their own Alabama 3 - LSU 0, 7: Fortunately for LSU, the defense is keeping the Tigers in the game — much like the first meeting.

Goes without saying we've never had two players in the National Championship game before… And it makes it difficult for most Aussies to choose a team not me though — I'm an Auburn man so am cheering for LSU!
After coming back from that timeout, Jefferson still can't get anything going. Another three and out. Alabama 6 - LSU 0,: As clueless as Jordan Jefferson looks in this half, that's how solid A.
He's passed for more than yards this half to Jefferson's On 2nd and 12 from their own 35, McCarron goes downfield and finds Norwood for 20 yards.
Can he get some more points before the half ends? McCarron picks up the blitz on the next play and passes it to Hanks, who picks up another first down.
Take nothing away from Alabama Jefferson just can't getting anything going with his offense, while McCarron ought to have more points on the board considering how well he's been able to move the ball.
The Original Honey Badger: Tyrann Mathieu hasn't really been a factor in this first half. But for those who want to understand just how ferocious Mathieu's namesake is,take a look at this viral video from last year featuring a honey badger in action.
Some lucky zhlub from Georgia has 60 seconds to kick a yard field goal in five attempts. If he makes it, he'll win a car, a boat, a motorcycle and the respect of all 17 people in the stands who are paying attention.
Alabama 9 - LSU 0, Alabama opens the second half with a strong return on the opening kickoff and McCarron goes right at the Honey Badger on the opening play.

LSU comes out throwing on first down from their own 23 and on first down but can't connect with Beckham. He makes up for it on second down and connects with Beckham for 19 yards.
The Tigers are on their own It's 3rd and 14 and Jefferson can't make anything happen. Personal foul on the kickoff. The LSU defense didn't notice that Alabama had called for a fair catch and leveled Christion Jones as he caught the ball.
They take over on their own Alabama 12 - LSU 0, 8: And McCarron comes out throwing again on first down and picks up another one.
He's passed for yards already and moving the ball with such confidence. On 2nd and 10 from the Alabama 49, the Crimson Tide run the ball but it goes nowhere.

Alabama 12 - LSU 0, 7: On 2nd and 11 from his own 20, Jefferson can't find a receiver and shovels it Mosley is shaken up and it's an injury timeout.
But when we come back, Alabama is set up on the LSU GlvrLover tweets from New Orleans: That's Yiddish for congratulations. You mean Lagniappe, by way of good measure.
Alabama 12 - LSU 0, 6: As Mosley is carted off the field, McCarron sets up on the He actually hands off on first down — trying to catch the defense by surprise?
Another running play for 'Bama and they pick up a few yards. On 3rd and 7, McCarron throws it away Alabama 12 - LSU 0, 5: Alabama 12 - LSU 0, 4: Jefferson completes a pass but it's for a 1-yard loss.

After a deep kickoff, Claiborne brings it out of the end zone but is brought down on the Jefferson is still in for some reason and throws a 7-yard completion to Peterson.
Honestly, if Jefferson doesn't make something happen on this series, I think Miles has to take the ball out of his hands.

Jefferson calls his own number, and brings it to the Brad Wing has to punt again. Alabama 15 - LSU 0, 9: They make a few stops and then sack McCarron.

Alabama 15 - LSU 0, 6: Amazingly, Jefferson is still in at quarterback. LSU has the ball on its own 40 and he just can't go anywhere.
But Hilliard rumbles for a first down Jefferson calls his own number again and runs for 19 yards! LSU has crossed midfield!
Michael Ford is thrown for a loss and then LSU is called for a penalty. On 2nd and 18, Jefferson throws it away. Or maybe he was trying to hurt someone's ankles.
And on 3rd down Jefferson goes deeeeeeeep Alabama LSU 0, 4: Alabama has the ball at midfield with 6 minutes left on the clock.
It's hard to believe this is the same LSU team that has gone undefeated this season. McCarron continues to march down the field and eat up the clock.

Yeah, because his team has made so many mistakes tonight. Alabama LSU 0,: McCarron just keeps running the ball Alabama LSU 0: The gun goes off and Alabama finally puts LSU out of its misery.
The game is over and Alabama leaves NO doubt as to who the national champion is. Their defense played masterfully. And McCarron was superb at quarterbac—he moved the ball on the ground and in the air at will.
And Shelley's five field goals more than made up for the first game. Anyone who thought that an Alabama win tonight might call into question who deserves the national title couldn't possibly have any doubt after seeing LSU drown in the Crimson Tide.
Furthermore, you act like the 5 field goals were touch downs. Bama should have been playing in the outback bowl for losing the west division.
Does this mean there will be co-champions when the final poll comes out? Both these offenses suck. Loser State and Aladamnbama, co-champs but no one cares.
Sorry, Jess, I just don't see it that way.
