The show goes to break and when it returns. The camera pans into the audience. The "Believers" have brought all type of weapons. Visible are stop signs, mops, ropes and other various household appliances. Famous B is not in traditional ring attire for this one. He is in a bright orange suit. To start things off, Mascarita heads to the audience and flings a beer onto Famous and his suit. He then grabs football shoulder pads and a helmet from a fan. Puts them on, lines up in a 3 point stance, charges towards B and drives the helmet directly into Famous and his B's.
Sagrada now pulls out a tiny ladder out from under the ring. Mascarita sets up the ladder on the broadcast table. He dives off of it and hits B with an elbow drop. Sagrada goes after "Beautiful" Brenda. While he is distracted, B gets up and superkicks him. B then grabs a giant bag of popcorn from a believer. He tries to hit Sagrada with it but Mascarita does a drop toe hold and knocks Famous down. Mascarita gets a hold of the bag and throws the popcorn onto him. Famous is back up, He grabs Mascarita and throws him into a trash can. He then stuffs Sagrada into that very same trash can. Hits him over the head with the lid and then stuffs him inside. When Famous goes to attack Sagrada again, Sagrada busts out of the trash and spears B with the lid as a battering ram. As Sagrada beats Famous down with the trash lid, Striker says that Duke 'The Dumpster' Droese would be proud.
Famous B recovers and knocks down Mascarita. He throws him into the ring. Then grabs a variety of weapons. A rope, sneakers, a toolbox and a "wizard's wand". B goes into the tool box and finds an "Arrogance" fumigator. Striker makes a Jake Roberts-Rick Martel reference. The fumigator actually has "Arrogance" written on it. The fans start chanting.. "Where's The Model?"... Famous B tries to spray Sagrada with arrogance but Sagrada escapes. Mascarita grabs Arrogance and uses it on Famous B. Sagrada goes outside the ring and finds a gym bag. He goes through it and finds a magician's hat and a bowling ball. Puts the hat on and bowls a perfect strike into Famous and his B's.
As Sagrada goes to the top rope. Out comes Dr. Wagner. He pushes Sagrada off of the top rope and enters the ring. Wagner has a Famous B framed portrait now and tries to hit Sagrada with it. Famous stops him and gets laughs from the audience. B didn't want to do damage to his own self portrait. Son of Havoc has arrived on the scene to backup his little buddy. He goes after Wagner. Knocks him to the outside and leaps on him. As this is happening, Famous is distracted by Havoc and Wagner on the outside. Sagrada sneaks up from behind Famous and hits him over the head with The framed portrait.... Son of Havoc and Wagner battle to the back.... Sagrada goes after Famous and chokes him out with his own tie. Brenda pulls out a giant pair of scissors and cuts the tie and B loose. Mascarita then hits a plancha on Famous on the outside. He then grabs a pie and slams it into Brenda's face.
Famous is up now and throws Sagrada into the broadcast table. Striker hands Sagrada his own shoe. Mascarita heads to the ring with it and strikes B. Getting beat down with a shoe is how Famous B fired Sagrada. So this is a small act of revenge by Mascarita...pun intended..... Sagrada follows that up with a tornado DDT on Famous from the top rope. He covers B and pins him for the victory.

Killshot offers his hand in friendship. They both hug. As they do, Dante tells Killshot that tonight, they will stay united just like old times.
Meanwhile in another part of The Temple, Drago is training with nunchucks in front of a bathroom mirror. He is approached by Kobra Moon.

Eventually Cage and Texano's teamwork backfires. The two current rivals start bickering and Texano knocks Cage down to the outside. Mariposa is in. She gets lifted by Texano and thrown onto Cage on the outside. Cage and Texano continue bickering. Meanwhile, The Mack and Argenis are now in the ring. The Mack hits a code breaker on Argenis. Then takes flight and leaps onto Cage, Texano and Mariposa at ringside. Now Crane and Ivelisse team up and take down Cage on the outside with a tandem cross body. Everyone is out on the floor. So Argenis leaps onto them and takes down the pile. Fox and Killshot now team up. Fox leaps onto everyone at ringside. Killshot is in the ring with Ivelisse now. Knocks her down with a stiff kick.

Marty is in the ring, tries to finish off Killshot. Dante comes in and pretends to save his "brother". Instead, He lifts him up and hits a vertical brainbuster on Killshot. Marty covers him and gets the win for his team.
