JB is backstage with Karen and Jeff Jarrett. Jeff asks JB if he knows where he's been for the past three days. He says he's been on the TNA cruise, being a company man, and he gets a text message from Sting adding stipulations to the match tonight. He says he was sailing the seas with his bride, being company people, doing the jobs of others, and what do they get? They get an added stipulation. Jarrett says he's forgotten more about cage matches than Hardy knows. He says Hardy will think he's in his element, and that Hardy will ooze charisma in the cage, but Jarrett is going to wear Hardy down, and either pin him or submit him. Sting comes in from out of nowhere and says if Jarrett loses, one of them is fired. This prompts Karen to throw a tantrum, and leads into a video package highlighting the events that have transpired between Hardy and Jarrett over the last couple of weeks leading into this match.
Steel Cage Match
Jeff Jarrett vs. Jeff Hardy
(Karen Jarrett will be handcuffed to Sting at ringside)
Back in the Impact Zone and it looks like we're finally ready to being. Jeff Jarrett makes his way out to the ring first, with Karen in tow, to a bit of heat from the crowd. Jeff Hardy is out next, and he gets a big pop from the crowd as he makes his way down to the ring in a goofy gladiator/ram/something weird helmet.
