Madison Rayne makes her way to the Impact Zone. We go to commercial
Taryn Terrell is in the ring and Madison is introduced. Madison says earlier in the week she received a call from Brooke Hogan telling her that she has a match tonight. Madison thinks it's her rematch for the title. She looks at Taryn and says she cost her, her title. ODB comes out and says she got a call from Brooke too, and she has a match with Madison. Madison wants no part of it. She says she's not ready. She instructs Taryn to get ODB back and ring the bell. She calls ODB trailer-park trash.
ODB vs. Madison Rayne
Madison begins poking ODB in the chest and ODB spits her liquor in Madison's face. ODB hits a 3-move flurry of offense and drops Madison in the BAM for a super-quick win.
Winner by pin: ODB
Eric Young comes out in a suit with some KFC and a small keg. ODB circles him and asks where he's been. He says he's been in Hollywood filming his TV show. ODB asks who the hell he is with his fancy crap. She says this isn't who she married. Young agrees and begins to strip to his underwear. ODB jumps on him with chicken in-hand and they kiss.

Hogan goes off on them and says they are not friends and that Kaz & Daniels are what is wrong with the business today. Hogan tells them they are going to fight and he will tell them when and where. Sting makes them flinch. Hogan says, "ta ta," and Sting tells him not to use his catchphrase. Sting says "What chu gonna do?" We go to commercial.
