Josh Mathews is a little nervous to have Rayne join him on commentary later on tonight. He quickly goes through lineups for Turning Point on Saturday, as well as what's to come tonight.
Backstage: Gia Miller speaks with The Good Brothers ahead of their big title match against The North on Saturday. She asks them if they're ready. Karl Anderson says, oh yeah! Tonight, he will face one-half of the Impact Tag Team champions, Josh Alexander. Ethan Page interrupts their interview. Anderson and Doc Gallows mock Page's alter ego, The Karate Man before a slap happens.
Sherlock Tommy Dreamer is still on a mission to find out who shot John E. Bravo. He questions Larry D, who checks out as innocent. Next in line is Cody Deaner. Dreamer recalls a conversation where Cody mentioned he'd like to kill Bravo. They leave us on a cliffhanger as we head back to the ring for the next match of the evening.
X-Division Championship: Rohit Raju (c) vs. TJP (If Rohit Wins, TJP Cannot Challenge for the Title Anymore)
Their match takes flight right before the bell rings. TJP runs out of the ring and sends Rohit Raju onto the ramp. He picks him up and sends him back in the ring. TJP double stomps Raju but only get's a near-fall 2 count. Raju gains some offense with a foot choke in the corner. TJP sends Raju into the middle turnbuckle.

Raju comes off the ropes with a throat punch, but that doesn't suffice for a pin. He keeps right on him with a DDT. The same results occur with another near-fall. Raju keeps TJP grounded until he counters it with a small package pin. Raju gets his shoulders up at 2. TJP flies off the ropes with a back elbow before putting the champion in a surfboard position.

Both men make their way back into the middle of the ring. Raju works TJP's arm again. TJP performs a similar Road To Valhalla. He digs deep with a kneebar on Raju. Raju climbs over towards his belt. The referee grabs the title out of his hands. Behind the ref's back, Raju low blows TJP. Raju goes for the last pinfall to retain his championship.
Winner: Rohit Raju
Backstage: Hernandez threatens Fallah Bahh that if he doesn't confess to stealing his money, he will say that Bahh shot Bravo. Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz come in to stick up for him. While Hogan and Bahh talk, Steelz steals the wad of cash right out of Bahh's front pocket. Poor guy.
At the Treehouse: The Rascalz just found out they're getting evicted from their treehouse. It appears they haven't paid for their place in two years! They have one week to leave Impact.

Backstage: Tenille Dashwood is hesitant to talk to Jordynne Grace, so she asks Kaleb to do it for her. Grace doesn't want to hear from Kaleb, so Dashwood asks the big question: will she be her partner for next week's opener for the Knockouts Tag Tournament? Grace isn't sold on being her partner, so she decides in order for Dashwood to earn her trust, they should team up on Saturday at Turning Point. Dashwood says that's perfect!
We see an advertisement ahead of Turning Point this Saturday!
Backstage: Rich Swann thanks the Rascalz for coming out there and helping him out. They say, of course, they're family. Swann issues a tag team match for next week to end the Rascalz's run in Impact with a bang. It'll be Dez and Wentz taking on Swann and Trey Miguel. They're all excited about this!
