Chelsea and Desmond are arguing over who's idea this whole thing was. Chelsea asks Desmond is he thinks about what will happen if Abyss wins. Wolfe says he's fully aware of what's at stake. Wolfe says she's his, not Abyss' or anyone elses'. Chelsea says she doesn't want the ring anymore, and wants Wolfe to call the whole thing off. Wolfe says it's not all about Chelsea, because the TNA Rankings also come out this week, and a win will help him in the standings. Chelsea is still freaking out. Wolfe says nevermind, because she'll always be his.
