After the opening credits roll, we see Eric Young throwing the new Impact World Champion Rich Swann around backstage. They spill their brawl towards the Impact Zone. Josh Mathews and Madison Rayne are shocked to see this carnage.
Young sends Swann shoulder-first towards the steel stairs. He doesn't stop there; he drags Swann by his hair, but Swann reverses and sends Young into the ring post. Young gets up and stomps, then wraps Swann's shirt around his neck to choke him out. Swann and Young roll into the ring. Swann connects a superkick. Young jumps on top of Swann and throws down a series of punches. Scott D'Amore and security run down to break them apart. Young yells out to D'Amore that he wants a rematch. D'Amore says he will get his rematch but not right now.
Young interjects and says he is fine to compete right now. D'Amore asks him if he is sure; Swann says yes he is. So now their rematch is official!
