Maryland Native Becomes New TNA Champ
Other DMV natives were in action at TNA Hard to KIll
The historic reign of Alex Shelley as TNA World Champion came to an end in the main event of the show as Moose won the top prize in the company for the second time.
He did so fighting from underneath for most of the match as he battled through an arm injury targeted by Shelley throughout.
The challenger's System teammates (Eddie Edwards, Brian Myers, Alisha Edwards, and former NFL running back D'Angelo Williams) attempted to interfere but were run out of the arena by Chris Sabin and Kushida.
Ultimately, Moose did not need any of them as he caught Shelley with a spear and won the title.
Nic Nemeth (fka Dolph Ziggler) came to the ring post-match and cleared the ring.
Alexandria, VA native Chris Bey was also in action (via Bleacher Report):
Bullet Club's Ace Austin and Chris Bey withstood the challenge of three extraordinarily talented tag teams at Hard to Kill, successfully defending their TNA World Tag Team Championship against Grizzled Young Veterans, The Rascalz, and the thrown-together team of [Speedball] Bailey and Laredo Kid.
CZW Champion and Baltimore native Rich Swann was in action in the pre-show:
Steve Maclin earned a momentum-building victory over Rich Swann in the opener, dodging a Phoenix Splash late, hanging his opponent up in the ropes, and delivering the Crosshairs.
His finisher, an underhook DDT known as KIA, put Swann away.
Moose will be in action on February 10 at World Domination Wrestling Alliance (WDWA) in Martinsburg, WV.
