Violent Valentine, IZW's first iPPV of 2013 destroyed the status quo from top to bottom as new champions were crowned while the shifting dynamics had jaw dropping consequences that shook the very foundation of all that is IZW.
Jordan Jacobs defeated O'Malley with the help of a pair of brass knuckles giving O'Malley a taste of his own medicine as Jacobs looked solid and on the way back after defeating such a physical threat like O'Malley. This bout was hot right out of the gate as people hated Jacobs and let him know. At one point, O'Malley must have conjured up his inner Double D as he hit Jacobs with a crossbody that pancaked Jacobs. Jacobs got bounced out of the ring the hard way and then became a whipping boy for O'Malley who bruised, battered and fileted Jacobs' chest with chops heard around the world. The crafty Jacobs ducked a chop meant for his head as O'Malley's hand slapped against the ring post before Jacobs drop kicked O'Malley head first into the same post. O'Malley went for another splash when Jacobs' pulled the referee in front of him. O'Malley slowed down his attack, and this gave Jacobs an opportunity to reach into his boot and grab a pair of brass knuckles that he sunk deep into the back of O'Malley's head. O'Malley was out cold and after a quick rollup, Jacobs got the first victory of the night.
Next up, Copycat came out and informed the audience that Cody Jones wasn't there and Cat insinuated that Jones wouldn't be returning to Team Remix or IZW. Because he was a man down, Copycat said he wasn't going to defend the Tag Team Titles tonight and that he would look for a suitable partner in the back and defend the titles at March Mayhem on March 23. Z stripped Team Remix aka Copycat of the Tag Titles. Z didn't leave the crowd hanging as he inserted the Birds of Prey (Phoenix & Falcon) into the bout for later on in the night keeping the match a Triple Threat!
Next up was the TLC Match with the Impact Division Championship on the line, as Jermaine Johnson put his belt up against the maniacal Damien Morte. With tables, ladders and chairs blanketing the Impact Arena, it didn't take long for both men to put those weapons to good use. Both men were atop a ladder as they traded fisticuffs until Johnson and Morte fell to the ground, with Morte injuring his head and Johnson his back. Both men fell out of the ring where they recuperated until picking up right where they left off, with Morte and Johnson trading chair shots, side suplexes on the ring apron and even a powerbomb through a table by Johnson that seemed to break Morte in half. Morte was nearly dead as Johnson made his way to the ring and began to climb up the ladder in hopes of grabbing the title. The unbreakable Morte followed Johnson up the other side of the ladder and spit green mist into Johnson's face. A blinded Johnson fell to the mat as Morte looked to grab the title. Johnson flailed around with his arms until he found the ladder and pushed Morte off the ladder which sent Morte over the top rope, outside of the ring where he landed on a table as his body bounced against the guardrail! Johnson, still blinded by the mist, finally found a ladder and set it up to grab the Impact Division Title. Johnson made his way to the top, a Copycat made his return to the ring and powerbombed Johnson, who was still standing on the ladder, through a waiting table down below on the mat, proving that Copycat is indeed the Worst in the World! Copycat literally grabbed Morte who was still broken and lying outside of the ring and put him on his shoulders and climbed up the ladder as Morte grabbed the hanging title to become the new Impact Division Champion!
The Triple Threat IZW Tag Team Championship Match was next as it was The Old School Suckas (Randy Price & Bryan Cruize) versus Big Business (Damon Windsor & Kevin Morgan) versus the newly added Birds of Prey (Phoenix & Falcon). Earlier in the night, BB took a secret elixir that initially made them much, much stronger as their newfound strength was hard to fathom. Cruize and Morgan started out first with Morgan giving Cruize a powerslam. Later in the bout, BB started to lose their superhuman strength as both Windsor and Morgan became light-headed and looked lost in the ring. BB finally got their wits back and gave Cruize a Detonator that ended the night for the OSS as Morgan pinned Cruize. This left only BB and the Birds. Falcon got into the match for the first time in the night and was dropped on his head by a modified T-bone suplex by Morgan. Falcon tagged in Phoenix and Phoenix began to chip away at the bigger Morgan using his speed and precision. BB began shoving each other in the middle of the ring and took their eyes off of the Birds of Prey in a moment of bad judgment as BB got hit with matching superkicks! Falcon soared across the air landing a flying splash as Phoenix hit a variation of a twisting lionsault as the Birds simultaneously pinned BB and captured the IZW Tag Titles!
In the main event, IZW Champion Double D took on The Convict in a match for the ages. Double D started off working in close to The Convict as he landed several forearms that didn't seem to make an impression on the Challenger. The Convict wrapped his huge hands around D's throat and began to choke the life out of the Champion before landing two back breakers. D would not stay down! D fought back with everything he had including using his leg kicks to keep The Convict at bay for a short period of time. That would not last as D tried to execute a flying knee, but The Convict caught D mid-air and began to squeeze the life out of the Champion with a bear hug from hell on the already damaged back of Double D. Later, D went to the top once again and flew off the top rope for his patented crossbody finisher but The Convict caught D in flight and landed the 15 to 20. D somehow managed to kick out of the pinfall! This was the first time in history that anybody has kicked out of the 15 to 20. Not only did D kick out, he started to kick ass as he landed several head kicks to the cement top The Convict calls a face. D went up for another attempt at a crossbody which he landed this time, but The Convict rolled over during the pinfall and picked D up by the throat as he finished the champion off with another 15 to 20. Your new IZW Champion, The Convict.
Finally, it was time for the Venus Memorial as Venus, the bride-to-be of Aaron Neil, who was lost at sea, was memorialized by Impact Elite. Madam Commissioner Erica took the mic first and let it be known that she blamed Venus for this whole mess and that Venus was the only one at fault do to her selfishness. Neil took the mic next and thanked destiny for keeping him a bachelor. Neil continued that this would not be a sad event, rather this was an opportunity to cut off the dead weight and re-establish Impact Elite as the premier stable in all of wrestling. As Impact Elite celebrated, Bobby Starr rose from the casket, brass scepter in hand and began to level Impact Elite one by one. Starr went at Neil mano y mano and after landing a series of overhand rights, lifted Neil high in the air, by the power of the Gods no doubt, and delivered a Greetings from Mt Olympus on the 6-time IZW Champion! Starr finished Neil off with a head shot from the brass scepter as Neil crumbled out of the ring!
