Hardy and Angle make their way to the Impact Zone. We go to commercial.
Joseph Park talks to Hogan and Sting in the office. He has been doing research on Aces & 8's, and they are in violation of many civil rights and crimes. Hogan says if Park can help, then to do so. Sting clowns on Park and says, "Kayfab."

The camera focuses on Angle who is pondering what just happened in disappointed disbelief. Angle leaves and Borash gets in the ring to introduce the final five in the BFG Series. Storm, RVD, Joe, and Bully Ray come to the ring. Borash says one man will be eliminated next week. Storm's points guarantee him a spot in the final four. Next week, Hardy will face Joe and Bully will face RVD. Pyro goes off.

Aries makes his way to the ring, walking with a purpose. He says it's time for Aces & 8's to get their a** kicked.
