Christy Hemme is backstage with Madison Rayne. Hemme starts to ask about the match tonight between Mickie James and Tara. Rayne says she's not worried about the match tonight, and she's not worried about James. She says she'll never get to the Knockout's title, because she would have to get through Tara. Tara was brought back to TNA to protect Rayne, and she'll have to do that tonight. Rayne asks if Hemme has any other questions, apparently she does not.
