- The show kicked off with Magnus and Dixie hitting the ring to huge heat again. Magnus called out MVP so that he could tell him something very important. MVP hit the ring - Magnus told him that he wasn't impressed by MVP having spent 9 years in jail, and promised that if he ever got in his way those 9 years would be nothing compared to 9 minutes with Magnus. MVP replied mocking Magnus for running around shouting "hey, look at me! I'm the champion!", and told him that a real champion doesn't need to do that - that people see a real champion and say to themselves "there's the champion" rather than "there's the paper champion". MVP told Magnus that the crowd hated him, and that he was about as popular as David Moyes (Manchester United manager who's doing very badly). He said though that he wasn't here to exchange insults, and challenged Magnus and Dixie to a 4v4 Lethal Lockdown match at Lockdown for complete control of TNA. Magnus accepted, but said that he regretted being unable to be a part of the match as team captain as he'd be defending his title against Joe instead. MVP put over Gunner as a and said he wouldn't be so easy to get past tonight, to which Magnus replied that he didn't care about war heroes or "some cheap 50 Cent knockoff" and that he'd make MVP his b---h if he got involved. MVP laid into Magnus and EC3 came out to turn the tables. Gunner came out to help, and the heels retreated - but only as far as the stage where The Wolves had come out to block their escape. Magnus literally threw EC3 to the Wolves and made his escape. EC3 was left laid out on the stage as the faces celebrated.
- We saw a backstage promo of Roode and Storm backstage. Roode was basically teasing his retirement, and saying he took all the blame for Beer Money breaking up how it did. Storm told him that they both knew what the business was like when they came in, and that he shouldn't quit. He said you can't change the past, but you can change the future. It came across very much as them teasing a reunion.
- Samoa Joe came out and challenged any member of Dixieland in the back to a match tonight, as he wanted a fight. The BroMans and Zema Ion hit the ring, and Joe told them that instead of just one of them he'd take them all on at once. Joe looked very strong again, before the triple team started to wear him down a bit. He made a big comeback though, laying out the BroMans and nailing Ion with the Musclebuster. He then got the win via submission with a rear naked choke on Ion. Yet again the crowd was all over Joe in this match - by far the fan favourite of the evening.
- Bobby Roode came out as a follow up to his backstage segment with Storm earlier. He cut a promo about how he was done with TNA and was leaving. He basically said his goodbyes and thanked the fans, and ripped on Dixie a bit for not keeping promises regarding title shots when he helped Magnus lately. Dixie then came out and told him he couldn't leave because he was under contract. She said that she needed a team captain for the Lethal Lockdown match, and told him that that if Roode led her to victory she'd give him 10% of the company. Roode questioned why he should trust her until she told him that if he got his lawyers to draw up the papers she'd sign them without question (guessing he may add a title match clause in there somewhere and she won't notice). Roode accepted. The fans were hugely pro Roode in this segment despite him being a heel, and very vocal about him not accepting Dixie's offer. This was really the only part of the night where the fans broke kayfabe and didn't boo the heel.
