This segues directly into a video package showing the events that led up to Abyss challenging Ray to this Monster's Ball match.
Bully Ray vs. Abyss
Bully Ray is the first man to make his way out to the ring to a lot of heat from the Impact Zone crowd. Ray grabs a kendo stick out of a trash can that's full of weapons ringside, and he uses it to intimidate So Cal Val before heading into the ring. Abyss is the next man to make his way out to the ring, and he gets a big pop from the crowd.
The bell rings, and Abyss gets himself pumped up, to the crowds delight. Ray and Abyss begin circling each other, but instead of locking up, Ray casually makes his way out to the floor where he surveys the weapons and looks angrily at members of the crowd. Ray makes his way back into the ring and Abyss charges, but Ray bails out to the floor again.
Ray makes his way back up to the ring apron, and slowly back into the ring. Ray ducks out between the ropes and grabs a chair, asking Abyss what he's going to do now. Abyss heads out to the floor, where he grabs a chair of his own, blowing Ray's mind.
Abyss heads back into the ring and gets the crowd pumped up by banging on the chair. The two swing chairs at each other for a bit, and Abyss drops his, so Ray lays in with a big shot to the back. Abyss is quick to come back, choke slamming Ray to the canvas. Ray is up right away and hits a big boot, but Abyss in turn, is up right away as well.
Ray grabs a chain out of his pocket at he begins swinging it around, so Abyss grabs a chair. Ray swings the chain into the chair, and Abyss comes right back, hitting Ray with a big shot to the back. Abyss heads to the outside and tosses a cheese grater, stapler, kendo stick, cookie sheet and a couple of trash cans into the ring. When Abyss heads back into the ring, Ray catches him with a chain shot to the back, and a trash can shot to the face, but Abyss punches the trash can back into Ray's face.
Ray is able to come back and put Abyss down on the mat for a two count. Ray grabs a kendo stick and points at the top of the ramp, saying 'You!'. Abyss bails to the outside where he grabs Janice. Abyss swings Janice at Ray and Ray bails to the floor, saying he's out of here. Ray walks fast up the ramp and to the back. Abyss follows and Ray comes right back up the ramp and out to the ringside area, followed by Abyss the whole way.
Back by the ring, Abyss is able to catch Abyss with a thumb to the eye before he blasts him with a cookie sheet to the back. Ray hits Abyss with a couple of right hands before he's able to whip Abyss face and shoulder first into the barbed wire board propped up on the ring post. Ray picks up the board and throws it into Abyss' face and Abyss' arm is cut open. Abyss comes right back, slamming Ray into the ring steps face first.
Abyss takes a walk around the ring and Ray follows, but Abyss sends Ray back into the ring. Abyss goes under the ring and grabs not one, but two black bags.
Abyss heads back into the ring and grabs the cheese grater, hitting Ray in the crotch and pulling it out in one swift movement. Ray drops down to his knees and Abyss turns his attention back to the two black bags. Abyss opens up one of the bags and pours out hundreds of tacks. Ray turns around and Abyss grabs him around the neck, but Ray drops to his knees and hits Abyss with a low blow.
Ray is still selling the cheese grater, but he's way over the top with it. Ray goes to the outside and grabs a table, bringing it back into the ring and setting it up in the middle of the ring. Ray goes over to Abyss and drags him up to his feet, but Abyss comes right back, chokeslamming Ray through the table and down to the mat. Abyss goes for the pin, but Ray is able to kick out at two.
