JB is backstage with Jeff Jarrett. He asks Jarrett if he ever imagined facing his toughest opponent with his gold medals on the line. Jarrett says he already took Angle's wife away. He says tonight is about becoming the #1 Contender, and taking away the last thing he's able to take away from Angle. He says tonight when Earl Hebner raises his hand in victory, Angle is in for agony. Jarrett will be standing on a podium on Impact, and Angle will have to put his medals around Jarrett's neck, and there's nothing he can do about it. Jarrett finally dedicates his win tonight to Karen, before ending the interview.
