Match times are not exact.
We get highlights from last week's show.
Kenny King looks for Samoa Joe backstage.
MVP and Lashley also look for Samoa Joe.
Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring. Joe says there is an MVP that is looking for him. So he will make it easy to find him, so he is here in the ring, and they can meet to figure a few things out. MVP, King and Lashley make their way to the ring. King says that this is getting old. MVP is the director of wrestling operations, and some tough guy always comes out here like a whining woman. Joe cuts him off and tells MVP that King should be kissing his ass. MVP says if Joe has something to say then say it, because time is money. Joe calls him a lying, tyrant, scumbag. Joe trusted MVP, he vouched for him because MVP promised a new day. Joe says that power has corrupted MVP completely. MVP says that Joe threw a tantrum and went home, and didn't show for the gauntlet, and that Joe never did his job. Joe says tonight he should face the three of them to set the balances right. MVP says Joe is not that stupid.
Austin Aries now makes his way to the ring. Aries says MVP seems to be stalling, because he wants no piece of Joe, because his tail is between his legs. Aries says MVP only fights when the deck is stacked in his favor. MVP says Joe is in breach of his contract. Aries says that MVP has to power to do what he wants, so MVP says since they want to fight; Joe can have a match tonight. If he wins, he will be reinstated to the roster. Tonight he can fight Austin Aries. If Aries loses, Aries is done with TNA. The same goes for Joe. MVP says they have a lot on the line, and wishes them luck.
Magnus checks on Bram, who says he is always ready. Magnus says Bram has never dealt with someone like Willow. Jeff became Willow after losing to Magnus. Bram said he was proud of Magnus then, but he became last and lost his edge. The old Magnus would still be the champion, but where is that guy? Bram says if the old Magnus doesn't return that it allows more opportunity for him.
Bram vs. Willow w/Umbrella
And here we go. Rights by Willow to begin, a spin kick follows and then a corner slap by Willow. To he floor and Bram slams Willow to the barricade, back into the ring and rights by Bram follow, and then a cover for 2. Bram lays the boots to Willow, to the corner and Willow hits and drops to the mat. Willow fires back, hits the jawbreaker and then the dropkick. The corner dropkick follows and Bram rolls to the floor. Willow follows, but Bram slams him to the steps. Back into the ring they go, to the corner and a head scissors by Willow sends Bram to the floor. Baseball slide by Willow and then a cannonball attack off the apron connects. Willow moves the steps, charges and hits poetry in motion on Bram. Willow slams Bram to the steps, Willow back into the ring and slingshots to the steps but eats steel as Bram moved out of the way. Bram grabs a pry bar from under the ring, brings it into the ring but Magnus makes the save and stops Bram. Magnus takes the pry bar and then attacks Willow with it for the DQ.
: Willow @ 5:00 via DQ
Magnus just beats the shit out of Willow as Bram watches on with joy. Bram tells Magnus to finish off Willow, so Magnus hits him in the back of the head and then lays the boots to him. Bram is very happy with Magnus.
MVP meets with the wolves, who are in his office, with their feet on his table. They call MVP a wolf in sheep's clothing, but MVP says they owe him. He signed them, gave them the shot and they won the tag titles. MVP tries to stir the pot between them and books Edwards vs. Richards. If they do not wrestle tonight, he'll strip them of the tag team titles.
Mr. Anderson is dressed like a wild west sheriff backstage and drinking beer. Yup.

Jessie and Ion are looking at pics on the phone, and Robbie is now there. Robbie's freaked out about the Menagerie. He's afraid of the clown. For his third birthday party he wanted a DJ, but got a clown, and it still bothers him to this day.
MVP meets with Brian Hebner, and says that Hebner is refereeing the Joe vs. Aries match. He wants a winner and a loser, no double DQs or double pins or anything like that. Hebner agrees.
Joe discusses his issues with MVP. Al he ever wanted was the one on one title shot, but he never got it. He vouched for MVP, he stood up for him, and he knows he made a mistake.

Christy Hemme announces "James Storm," and his old music hits and here is Mr. Anderson. Anderson says there is a new sheriff in town, a drunk, redneck, hillbilly that likes beer. He asks Hemme if she likes beer and says, "sorry about my damn breath". He keeps repeating that he likes beer and then James Storm actually makes his way out to the ring.
