- Post Show: We see Brooke tending to Bully and Hogan as everybody is helped to the back. Spooky music plays.
- Todd Keneley welcomes us to the show with Mike Tenay. Taz' seat is empty. Tenay says he's never been more shocked than he was last week and he cannot wait to hear what Taz has to say tonight.
- Aces & 8's arrives in the parking lot in full-force on their motorcycles and they have a loud rally.
- The opener runs and we go straight Aces & 8's entrance lead by Taz from the side entrance.
Taz gets in the ring backed by his gang and says everybody has been asking him why he's with Aces & 8's. He says he couldn't pass up on the opportunity to be part of the machine that has an agenda to get revenge and redemption. He adds that he is lead by a higher vision and a higher power. He calls Brooke and Bully's wedding was, was an opportunity for them to stand on their faces. Taz tells Dixie to look at the language in the contract. He says if somebody puts a hand on him he will own this place. He calls himself 'Teflon Taz.' He says, "Good luck dealing with these guys and the higher power."
- Todd and Tenay ponder Taz' return to commentary and Tenay makes note of the 'Higher Power.'
- Jesse and Tara have a skit backstage. Jesse peps them up and asks if she's motivated. She excitedly grabs him by the shirt and leads him.
- Tara vs. Velvet Sky for the Knockouts Title is NEXT.
- We see a graphic for Daniels vs. Jeff Hardy for the World Title tonight and segue into a video package for Daniels. Can Daniels win the title that has eluded him?
- Kazarian hands Daniels an appletini in the locker room and shows the interviewer his credentials as a licensed "manager extraodinaire." Daniels says this is not a big match; Ali-Frazier was a big match. He says this is a turning point for TNA and they need him. He cuts a rhyme-style promo and calls himself the World Heavyweight Champion of the World. Kaz says that is sexy.
- We see Taz has joined commentary. He tells Todd off and says he's starting to piss him off. Tenay says they have a lot of questions and he says to fire away.
TNA Knockouts Championship: Tara (c) w/ Jesse vs. Velvet Sky
Velvet comes to the ring followed by Tara and Jesse. Tenay asks Taz about the higher power and Taz says he's out of his mind if he thinks he's going to talk about that. Taz wants to get to calling the match saying he will continue to be the esteemed color broadcaster that he is. He gets agitated when Tenay tells him to hold on.
Velvet goes for an early roll up and gets 2. She gets another one. Tara hits a shoulderblock and Velvet comes back with an armdrag and a flurry of offense. Tara goes out to get a breather with Jesse. Velvet continues with quick offense in the ring and knocks Tara out of the ring as we take a break.
We're back to action as Velvet hits a crossbody out of the corner for 2. Taz tells Tenay he like what Aces & 8's stand for and he like what he was told when he was recruited. Tara reverses and gets a near-fall. Tara hits a snap suplex and floats-over for 2. Tara shakes her 'cheeks' and hits the standing moonsault to get a 2. Tara throws Velvet by her hair across the ring and goes up top. Velvet slams her off and they both slowly get up. Velvet sends her in and quickens the pace and snaps off a head-scissors takedown.
