Match times are not exact.
Bully Ray is spray paining a table backstage.
Eric Young discusses being TNA champion and meets with MVP. MVP says he has leveled the playing field in TNA and that led to Young winning the title. He is a better champion than Magnus and is a fighting champion. Young says he wants to be champion the fans believe in and wants to defend the title tonight. MVP brings in Gunner and Anderson, and then Bobby Roode appears and wants a title shot. MVP has a deck of cards, and they will have an endurance challenge. The two guys that pull the lowest cards have a match. The winner faces the man that pulls the high card, and the winner of that gets the title shot. Anderson, Gunner and Roode all draw, Anderson drew a 4. Gunner did as well. Roode got an ace, so he gets the advantage. Gunner vs. Anderson starts off the endurance challenge.
Magnus makes his way to the ring. He is pissed that he is not in the title picture, and demands that MVP gets out here to explain himself. We see Abyss enter through the crowd, and they brawl on the floor. Abyss misses a chair shot, Magnus back into the ring and then lays the boots to him. Abyss hits a chokeslam, and then grabs a chair. The crowd chants for "Janice," the 2x4 with nails, so he grabs Janice, who just happens to be under the ring. Magnus runs away to ensure that he can run away another day as Abyss stands tall.
Bully Ray now makes his way to the ring with a table. He reveals that the table has Dixie spray painted on it. Bully says Dixie snuck up behind him and shoved him off the top rope and he fell through two tables on Sunday. He bruised a rib and fractured another, but he's still standing. He may not be as big or bad as he used to be, but he is tough and no ugly woman will run him off. So help him god, if he sees her tonight in this building, she will go through that table.
Dixie arrives in her limo and is happy with her actions from Sacrifice.
Dixie is in catering and Spud sees her and tries to hide her. She gets pissed, and he informs her that Bully wants to put her through a table. She says he is not afraid, because she put him through a table and did not break a sweat or a nail. She's a lady and his boss, so if anyone should worry, it should be Bully. She does not take kingly to being threatened.

Gunner faces Bobby Roode later tonight.
Magnus packs up his stuff to leave. Bram (former NXT talent Kenneth Cameron) arrives, and is here to see Magnus. They need to talk.
After the break, Bram talks to Magnus and says he needs to talk some sense into him. Magnus has become an embarrassment to his friends and family. In the good old days, Magnus was different, this isn't the real him. Remember the booze and the women? Bram says Magnus has gone soft and slams him against a locker. Bram is here for his own good.
EC3 says in seven days he has a dream match for him and all the fans, because he faces Kurt Angle next week. This should have happened at Lockdown, but he took out Angle's knee and forced him to have surgery. But he is glad Angle is back, because he needs to validate himself and will when he beats Angle. EC3 has not been pinned or submitted, and will not be when he faces Angle. He was 288-0 at the Boca Raton Prep Academy. Tonight he proves his worth in an exhibition against a lion, a gazelle, he faces Spud. Spud appears in an amateur singlet and bow tie. They are trained professionals, do not try this at home.
Exhibition Match: Spud vs. EC3
EC3 gets a single leg, and then a gator roll. Back to the feet, takedown by EC3. EC3 is very proud of himself. EC3 tells Spud to assume the position, and he drops into referee's position. Angle's music hits and he appears. Angle says that was cute, and he would school EC3 right now, but he has a warning. He will not be facing a midget like he is tonight, nor will he face the Olympic hero Kurt Angle. He will face a man out for revenge. Angle is pissed, and he will not only beat EC3, he will end his streak and he will also hurt him. He will snap EC3's ankle, so enjoy walking around for the next week, the pain begins in seven days.

Dixie Carter walks with security, and instructs them to set up a table in the ring, and not to leave her side.
The Beautiful People meet, and they got a letter from TNA. They are informed that they have to carry themselves in a highly regarded manner. Their wardrobe is "crass and revealing". They need to dress as ladies, or there will be severe repercussions. Love says they will wear evening gowns like the ladies they are, and still have their celebration.
Dixie Carter and her security detail make their way to the ring. They have the table with her name on it and set it up in the ring. Dixie sits on the table and asks if we know who she is? She's the woman that put Bully through a table. She did that because Bully double-crossed her at Lockdown. And now Bully will always remember that she put him through a table. She read on Bully's "Twittah Machine" that she injured Bully when she sent him through the table. Bully keeps threatening her, and has this table in HER ring with HER name on it to intimidate he. Well she is not intimidated, and says Bully in the one who should fear her.
Bully now makes his way out to the ring. The security guys make a wall to protect Dixie, and Bully says that the entire crowd wants to see him put her through a table. Bully doesn't fear her, but knows she fears him. He then asks the security guys what they are doing. He asks if they think they can stop him. They know him pretty well and what he will do to them. He wants to reason with them, do they want to stick up for Dixie? Deep down, they would love to see Dixie put through a table. Do the right thing guys, just walk away. The security looks back at Dixie, and they all step aside, minus the three left in the ring. Bully then says he will count to five, and if they are still there when he gets to five, he will kick their asses. And then he will put Dixie through a table. He counts, they refuse to leave, he slides in and they tackle him down to the mat. Bully eventually fights them off, and starts tossing bodies. Bully has Dixie cornered, and she then goes face to face with him. She tries to slap him, he stops her and looks for the powerbomb.
MVP interrupts and makes Bully stop. MVP says this is not Dixie's ring, so get out before he changes him mind and allows Bully to put her through the table. MVP says he is responsible for everything that happens, and he has no time for these shenanigans. Until further notice, both of them are banned from the Impact Zone.

The BroMans complain about losing the tag team titles at Sacrifice. The numbers advantage messed with their heads. MVP books them in a six-man tag, next. Bully Ray arrives, and asks MVP what his job is here. Bully says that MVP only has his job because MVP won at Lockdown, thanks to Bully's actions. MVP says what happens in the ring he is responsible for, but outside, well that's another story.

Love says to hit their music, and they look to strip off their evening gowns. They do a tease, but don't take off the dresses. Love says the fans are disgusting and pathetic. They would never show the fans their goodies, and says the fans couldn't get chicks like them if they went to Nevada with a fist full of 50s. They wrote the letter to tease the fans. She now wants the fans to worship her as the greatest women's wrestler in the world.
Gail Kim protests this by coming to the ring. She says that the two of them have made a mockery of the division she built. She said they promised to strip tonight, so she is here to make sure they keep their promise and attacks. She beats down Love and tries to strip her, but Sky pulls Love to the floor.
