No Disqualification Match
- Rob Van Dam vs. Christopher Daniels
Daniels rolls out of the ring and grabs a mic. He tells everyone to wait. He says Bob Van Dam, and asks him to listen. He wants to be the voice of reason. How did they get to the point of No DQ. He's not a savage like the fans, or a hardcore wrestler like RVD, he's a pure wrestler. He says he never runs from a challenge, or quits, but he has a suggestion. Since it's Impact Wrestling, where wrestling matters, they should agree to a straight wrestling match, with no weapons. He asks for a gentleman's agreement.
Van Dam shakes Daniels' hand and ends up in a headlock, leading to the bell being rung. RVD pushes Daniels down and slams his knee into the mat, catches him with a kick in the corner and goes for a quick pin. RVD goes for an arm bar and Daniels tries to counter into a pin. We get a bit more mat wrestling between the two before Daniels bails to the outside.

Daniels is able to send RVD to the outside, but RVD comes back in and crotches Daniels on the top rope, goes to the top and hits a single leg dropkick to knock Daniels down.
Daniels walks away up the ramp, saying that he's done. Van Dam doesn't want that so he chases him up the ramp and the two fight. RVD back body drops Daniels on the ramp. Daniels tries to go through the crowd. Van Dam beats on Daniels and drapes him over the barricade, hitting a leg drop from the ramp. Daniels crawls back to the ring and RVD follows.

Daniels goes to the outside and grabs a chair which he buries in RVD's gut before hitting a urunage on the chair, but it's still only good for a two count.
