Match times are not exact.
We get highlights of MVP's plan to take power in TNA.
Eric Young makes his way to the ring. Young says in three days he faces MVP at Slammiversary. Young calls out MVP and his friends, because he has something to say. MVP says that he has nothing to do with Dixie Carter, he is facing Young at Slammiversary and is focused on that. Young knows that his match won't be one on one on Sunday, and just wants to know what he will have to deal with. MVP says he is a world-class athlete, and says Young can't beat him and he will take the title from Young. Young says MVP needs to show him the respect that he has earned, and all he wants is one request. Young only wants a fair fight at the PPV. MVP would like to promise that, but Kenny King has emotional outbreaks and he can't promise that. Young says he is talking to MVP, man to man, so listen real good, if a bigger better man wants to take the title, so be it. But getting screwed and attacked from behind, that is not cool or fair, that is garbage. Young will do anything to ensure that doesn't happen. MVP then says he will grant Young a fair fight and pick his stipulation, but he has to earn it. He has to beat MVP, King and Lashley in the same night. King interrupts, and says that Young couldn't beat two of them. King interrupts again and says Young has to beat two of them and MVP then agrees to that. Young can pick the Slammiversary stipulation if he beats two men from Team MVP. Young says maybe he shouldn't be TNA champion, but he is, and he doesn't think MVP is man enough to take the title from him. MVP repeats the stipulation, and says Young's first opponent tonight will be Bobby Lashley.
To the floor they go, chops by EY and then rolls Lashley back into the ring. Lashley takes over as he lays the boots to EY, and then some shoulder blocks in the corner.

Magnus says that Bram is his oldest friend and best mate, and he has brought back the old Magnus. They wanted him to be a watered down, suit-wearing joke. He looks back at the last six months and it makes his sick. No more being what someone else wants him to be, and with Bram at his side, they are unstoppable. Bram says Jeff needs to be Willow to have an edge, but who ever you are, you know who the real Mag-Daddy is.
Willow now makes his way out to the ring. Willow says he is giving them a chance to run, because he is dangerous. Behind the mask he is not responsible for his actions because he is from Hardy's Imag-I-nation. Is he from Imagination Land? He can go where Jeff Hardy cannot go. He is glad Magnus found himself, and at Slammiversary, they will take them down. Magnus say she has Bram, so bring it on. Willow is glad Bram will be there, because THEY are ready to fight. Bram says they are real and are two dangerous people. Willow says he will have someone in his corner, Abyss. They rush the ring and we have a big brawl. Abyss and Willow clear the ring.

Brooke laughs at this and says that Spud is insane because she hasn't had a child. We now see pics on the screen of a baby that is supposedly Bully's. Spud says that she cannot lie and calls her a hussy. She starts to back Spud into the corner, and EC3 then says maybe he should teach her a lesson in respect.
Bully Ray now heads to the ring to make the save. Spud and EC3 run as Bully tosses chairs at them. Bully grabs the mic and asks how EC3's head is after he made him bleed last week. He had a table with EC3's name on it and will put him through it. He says he hasn't seen Brooke in some time, but says that Brooke was an awesome girlfriend and they had a great time together, and he is sorry it didn't work out. He's in a different place and he hopes she has an awesome life. They hug it out. EC3 is disgusted by this, and says Bully is pandering. EC3 says this needs to come to a head, and says at Slammiversary, he challenges Bully to a tables match.
