Next up, we have Tasha Steelz w/Savannah Evans in a squash match against Rachelle Scheel. Tasha makes quick work of Rachelle, and then both she and Savannah beat her down.

We go backstage to new IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Champions – Heath and Rhyno – walking around. They’re approached by the Motor City Machine Guns, who want Heath to make good on his promise to give them a title shot. Heath says to talk to management and if they book it then they’ll give them a shot.

The Motor City Machine Guns go straight to IMPACT EVP Scott D’Amores office to ask for their title shot. They run into the Major Players also standing outside the office for the same reason. Scott comes out and says if they want a match then Cardona can take on Shelley tonight.

Next, we go back to the ring for Chris Bey being accompanied to the ring by Ace Austin, for his match against Tommy Dreamer. Dreamer is out accompanied by Bully Ray.

We go backstage to Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis – New Japan Pro Wrestling STRONG US Openweight Tag Team champs Aussie Open – who claim they’re back in IMPACT for tag team gold and they lay down an open challenge to anybody who thinks they can beat them.

In another backstage area, Bully is seen pacing around with Tommy Dreamer trying to calm him down. Bully talks about how he’s been trying to do things the right way since he returned at Bound for Glory, but he’s really tired of everybody accusing him of attacking Ace and saying nobody can trust him.

Now, we get the Major Players out to the ring as Matt Cardona takes on Alex Shelley of the Motor City Machine Guns.

Brian Myers gets involved from the outside.

Shelley goes on the defensive and then turns it to his advantage.
