D'Lo Brown and Matt Striker welcome fans toΒ Impact Wrestling! We kick things off with the Impact World Champion Rich Swann making his way down to the ring.Β 

Swann begins by saying that his whole life, he wanted to become a pro wrestler. He knew at an early age he would become a World Champion. Now, that dream has paid off. He didn't realize as the top champion, he'd have many targets on his back. He calls Tommy Dreamer out to the ring. Dreamer's music hits.Β 

As Dreamer makes his way into the ring, Swann informs the fans at home that on February 13, it happens to not only be No SurrenderΒ but Dreamer's 50th birthday.Β  He would like to offer a dream birthday present of having them square off for the championship. Before Dreamer can answer, Sami Callihan comes out.Β
