The show begins with Salina de la Renta on the phone. She runs right into Dynasty (Alex Hammerstone, MJF and Richard Holliday), as they are just exiting the building. De la Renta doesn't get the joke that they were trying to make about Mexico and their fighters. She then slams them about chickening out of a tag team title match against the Von Erichs. She challenges MJF and Holliday against her clients, Los Parks, for a tag team championship match tonight. They aren't too happy about it and make up every excuse to not fight. Hammerstone says that they'll do it.
Commentators AJ Kirsch and Rich Bocchini welcome fans to MLW Fusion. They announce that there will be three big matches tonight including:
Rey Horus (Crash Heavyweight Champion) vs. Alex Hammerstone (National Openweight Champion) in a winner takes all match.

Backstage: Kaci Lennox was supposed to interview Brian Pillman Jr. about what went down last week with his match against Austin Aries, but instead, Low Ki took it upon himself to speak to Pillman and tell him to stop letting his emotions overrun his wrestling ability. He then proceeds to tell him that he is not playing a game of checkers, he's instead playing a game of chess and needs to be careful. Before Pillman walks away, he says that Ki knows nothing about him.
Up next, Rey Horus vs. Alex Hammerstone. Before their match, MLW catches up with Dynasty while they are grocery shopping. They want nothing to do with the cameras, so they all walk away.
De la Renta is backstage cutting a promo on how LA Park will take the World Heavyweight Championship on November 2. Josef Samael interrupts her. He says that she needs to think with her mind and not with her heart. He is trying to lure her in to join CONTRA. She says no way, she chooses violence instead of joining his group. Jimmy Havoc enters the room and says that he just received a position as executive producer and he wants de la Renta and Samael to each pick someone from their respective groups to go one-on-one in a Tijuana street fight next week. Samael says he is going to represent himself next week.
