Hardcore Justice (2010) (stylized HardCORE Justice, and occasionally referred to as Hardcore Justice: The Last Stand) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), which took place on August 8, 2010 at the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida.[4] It was the sixth event under the Hard Justice chronology and the eighth event of the 2010 TNA pay-per-view schedule.

Storylines[edit]

Hardcore Justice featured seven professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.[5]

This year, TNA changed the event's name from Hard Justice to Hardcore Justice in honor of the ECW reunion show theme that it adopted. The show was originally going to be main evented by a match between Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn. However, the match had to be cancelled when Lynn pulled out due to a back injury. The replacement main event was Rob Van Dam vs. Sabu.[6][7]
