Christy Hemme is backstage and she asks for a word from Sabu but Stevie Richards says no. Richards has a word for Fortune, and he says he's tired of breaking up the fights, he's challenging AJ Styles to a match this Thursday on Impact.
- We get a video package detailing the events of the past few weeks that have led up to the next match, between Jeff Jarrett and Samoa Joe.
Jeff Jarrett vs. Samoa Joe
Jeff Jarrett is the first man out to the ring, and he doesn't really get much of a reaction at all from the Impact Zone, although it is mostly negative what he does get. Jarrett grabs a mic and hypes how on 10/10/10 the Immortals were revealed, and over the past month they've taken down everyone who's got in their way, and tonight, the founder is going to finish off Samoa Joe. And as far as selling out, Jarrett, Bischoff, Hogan, Hardy, and the entire crew of Fortune bought in, and they're taking control of the company. Jarrett says he'll shut the entire show down and the crowd won't see Jeff Hardy tonight. As Jarrett makes his way to the back he's stopped cold by Samoa Joe's music.
Joe makes his way out to the ring and forces Jarrett to backpedal to the ringside area. Jarrett is apprehensive, but he slowly makes his way into the ring. The bell rings and Joe is staring daggers toward Jarrett. We get a lock up from both men and Joe takes Jarrett into the corner. Jarrett is able to escape out of it. Jarrett tries to lock up Joe from behind, but Joe takes him down to the mat. Joe misses an elbow drop, and both men stare each other down. Jarrett goes behind again and Joe is able to turn it into a snap mare. We get a bit of chaining between both men, but Joe ends it with a running high knee. Joe lays into Jarrett with a couple of rights to the face, then the kidneys. Joe hits a splash, and a beautiful enzugiri type kick to Jarrett before choking away at him with his boot and catching him with a series of face washes. Jarrett is able to stop Joe and rake his face across the ring rope, but Joe comes right back with a quick forearm smash.
Joe is just taking it to Jarrett, pounding on him, and Jarrett is able to take Joe into the corner and hit a series of shoulder blocks. Joe hits Jarrett with a series of Kobashi chops in the corner and Jarrett's chest is beet red. Jarrett fights out of a suplex and locks in an ankle lock on Joe. Jarrett goes to the outside and grabs a chair, but the ref is quick to take it away. Back in the ring Jarrett goes up and connects with a first drop. Another attempts and Joe blocks it, responding with a clothesline. Joe hits Jarret with a couple of right hands, and inverted atomic drop, big kick and back splash.

Joe is able to respond with an exploder suplex, and he follows it up by seating Jarrett on the top turnbuckle. Joe goes for a superplex, but Jarrett is able to fight it off and snap Joe's neck across the top rope. Jarrett puts Joe on the top turnbuckle, and connects with a stroke from the middle rope. Another cover, and Joe still kicks out at two.

Joe rolls Jarrett into the ring, and seats Jarrett on the top turnbuckle. Security run down to the ring and Joe fights them off, hitting the muscle buster on one. Jarrett goes to the outside and grabs a night stick, taking it to the back of Joe's knee, then jabbing it into Joe's throat, and using it to choke out the big man. Jarrett chokes Joe while one of the security guys chokes Joe. Jarrett puts Joe in the rear naked choke as security throws the ref into the match.
