KM is in the ring to address his relationship with Fallah Bahh after Fallah inadvertently cost them a tag team match last week. KM says he was trying to help Fallah by making him into the next big star of IMPACT Wrestling but Fallah screwed that up. Fallah comes to the ring and hands KM a note. It says he won’t be facing KM tonight because KM’s opponent is a standby wrestler – but it’s not Richard Justice!

We see footage from the oVe cam. Referring to Pentagon coming to the aid of Fantasma last week, Callihan says he’s sick and tired of people sticking their noses in oVe’s business. Callihan says they’re going to make an example out of Pentagon tonight when Jake & Dave Crist face Pentagon and Fantasma in a tag team match.

After the match, Madison Rayne gets on the mic and says when she returned to IMPACT Wrestling, she had no intention of coming back as an in-ring competitor but her recent burst of momentum changed her mind. She informs us that IMPACT management has granted her a shot at Su Yung and the Knockouts Championship at Slammiversary! The lights go out and Su Yung’s demonic laugh fills the IMPACT Zone as Madison retreats up the ramp.
At the clubhouse, LAX is celebrating their tag title victory over Z&E earlier tonight. Konnan returns but the mood quickly changes as he tells King they need to talk. Konnan accuses King of knowing who attacked him but King denies the allegation. Konnan tells King if he finds out he had something to do with the attack, he’s going to find him!
