Impact opens with a recap of last week’s world title match. We show Magnus aligning with Dixie Carter and being screwed out of the world title.
Impact is taped coming from the Impact Zone. Rockstar Spud comes out to some really meek trumpet music. Spud marches down to the ring and grabs a mic. Spud calls everyone his lords and ladies. He says that it is his pleasure to introduce the woman who is responsible for all of this. Spud calls her a mix of Lady GaGa, Santa Claus and Queen Elizabeth, and introduces Dixie Carter.
Dixie comes down and thanks Spud. Dixie says that Magnus has been crowned champion. She says that the right man, the deserving man won. She says that they all look up to Magnus as a role model, but more importantly, all of the wrestlers in her company look up to Magnus as a role model. She calls him the top man in Dixie land. Dixie says that Magnus has a big announcement, and she is about to say what it is, but Hardy’s music interrupts her.
Hardy comes down to the ring, limping noticeably. He grabs a mic and Dixie asks what he is doing. She calls him a loser, but Hardy says he doesn’t care about her champion, the creatures know who he is. He says that he is out here to get something very important off of his chest. Spud interrupts him and says that this is Dixie Carter, and he is way out of line. Jeff keeps trying to say something, but Spud keeps cutting him off. Spud says that as the head of talent, he wants him to take all of his little creatures and to stick them up his back side. Hardy grabs Spud and says that this will only take a minute.
EC3 comes in and takes out Hardy and tosses him out of the ring. Dixie gets the microphone and is about to make her announcement, but Sting comes out. Sting says that he has an announcement, and that is he is sick of all these entitled punks around her thinking they can do whatever they want without suffering the consequences. He says that he is not leaving the ring until he gets what he wants, and that is too kick the crap out of EC3. Sting says that we should have a tag match, EC3 and Spud against Hardy and Sting.
Carter says that she doesn’t care what he wants, but she should care what the people want, and they want to see the match. Dixie tells Sting to not tell her what the fans want. She says that we are going to have a main event, a tag match. Dixie’s music plays while Dixie asks them to cut her music, but the music keeps playing and we go to commercials.
We come back and Dixie is still in the ring. She says that she is proud to announce something very important for the company. Gunner’s music plays and he has his briefcase with his feast or fired world championship shot. He gets in the ring and says that he knows what she thinks she has to say is important, but what he has to say is more important. He says that he has a world title shot, and they know he is a man with little patience, and he wants Magnus to come out now and he wants his title shot. Dixie says that Magnus is across the pond celebrating, so he will have to take a rain check.
Dixie tries to make her announcement, but Gunner interrupts her again and says that she should tell Magnus that whenever he comes back, Gunner is back. Dixie tries to speak again but this time James Storm comes out. He apologizes and says that he hears Gunner talking about things that he can’t get. He says that gunner owes him. gunner denies it, but Storm says that Gunner shouldn’t interfere with his match against Bobby Roode, but gunner did anyways and threw in the towel. Gunner says that Storm was about to be slammed onto barbed wire, and that he was looking out for a friend. Storm says that he was jumped in a bar by Roode.
Storm questions how Roode knew where Storm was that night, and he thinks Gunner “stooged” him off. Gunner denies it, but Storm says he wants a match right here, for his briefcase. Dixie tells the people at home to text their friends, because that match is going to happen tonight. Dixie says that she is now NOT ready to tell everyone about her announcement and she leaves the ring.
We come back from commercial and gunner and James Storm are ready to go.

Storm gets up first and throws his head into the post. The bell rings, and apparently we had a count out while they were both out of the ring.
After the match, both men brawl all the way up the ramp and through the entrance.
Brooke is shown in the back talking to Bully. She is saying that she has been trying to contact him, and she hasn’t heard back. Bully doesn’t say anything, and Brooke says she is going to go out there and air all of his dirty laundry. Bully calls her back and whispers that that wouldn’t be a good idea. Brooke gives him a look and then leaves.
We get a video of the rise of Magnus. Magnus says that people who talk about him as a young punk who hasn’t paid his dues is ridiculous. Magnus talks about his five years in the company, and actually touches on some shoot stuff about his bad gimmicks starting out. He says that he was labeled as the next big thing, meaning that “he is going to be good, but not right now because I am not ready to hang them up, Brother.”
We go back to the Impact Zone and Brooke is coming out. She says that it has been weeks since she has seen or talked ot Bully, and although she understands why he is giving her the silent treatment, but she refuses to take blame for this. She demands that Bully should come out here and tell everyone the truth. Bully comes out in sunglasses and a hoodie, and no music plays. He comes to the ring and Brooke asks him what is going on with him?
She says they can fix this, and that it isn’t her or his fault that Aces is not around anymore. Bully turns away and Brooke gets mad and says that she is so tired of being his dog. She says that she has watched him destroy everything, Aces and 8s, his family and his own brother. Brooke says he was supposed to be her ticket to fame and money. She says that Bully is like that weird kid in high-school who has no friends.
Bully turns back to her, and Brooke says that she is done with him. She tries to leave the ring, but Bully stops her and says that she is done with him when he is done with her. Bully says that he doesn’t blame her for screwing everything up, because, look at her, because she ins’t the smartest girl in the world. Bully says he kept her around for some certain uses, and she wasn’t even good at those uses. Sometimes, when he closes his eyes, he wished he was back with Brooke #1.
Bully says that she should be lucky he doesn’t piledriver her on her ugly face. Some ominous music plays in the background, and Bully says that he will use her as a messenger. He tells her to tell everyone that they know how violent he is, but now it is going to be a lot worse. Brooke leaves the ring and we go backstage to Joseph Park in the locker room. Park is looking at barbed wire and thumb tacks, and doesn’t know what to do. His Monsters Ball Match against Bad Influence is next.
