The entire room is amazed by Williams’ mathematical statistics.

After the commercial break, Eddie Edwards and Willie Mack are in the ring, and they have something to say. Edwards begins by saying he knows as an athlete that you’ll win some and lose some in your career; however, they are not happy with how Violent By Design decided to take out Tommy Dreamer before their match at Hardcore Justice to gain the upper hand. Edwards warns VBD that if you mess with Dreamer, you mess with his friends. Edwards calls out Eric Young.

Young and his posse make their way out. Young informs Edwards and Mack that if there’s one thing they can guarantee is that he and his group are not liars. Edwards doesn’t believe it. He tells them to step into the ring and fight him and Mack.

– Tenille Dashwood welcomes everyone to her first-ever episode of “All About Me.” Gia Miller is the guest/interviewer for the show. She is confused; she thinks she’s on “Locker Room Talk,” since the layout is the same. Miller then proceeds to ask Dashwood about her big win at Hardcore Justice, where she will face Purrazzo for the Knockouts Championship at Rebellion. In summary, Dashwood promises she will be the one to knock Purrazzo off of her throne. Dashwood refuses to let Miller ask another question.

Up next, the Fighting Phenom, Jazz, makes her way out to the ring with Jordynne Grace to give her retirement speech.

Jazz begins by saying when she first came to Impact, her goal was to have one more title run. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. She says during her match with Purrazzo last Saturday, she felt the same fire she once had 15 years ago. She tips her hat to Purrazzo for being one of the best champions out there. Jazz takes a moment to thank Jordynne Grace for giving her a call and letting her compete for the Knockouts Tag Team Titles. She also thanks Impact for welcoming her with open arms. She is happy to be going out with a bang. But before she does, she has one more thing to say to Jordynne. Before she can get it out, Fire ‘N Flava rudely interrupts her.

Jordynne Grace & Jazz vs. Fire ‘N Flava

Fire ‘N Flava comes out and rubs it in the veteran’s face about how she unsuccessfully challenged for the Knockouts Tag Team and singles Championships. Jordynne tells them to shut up; if they have an issue, they should take it up with her. Fire ‘N Flava says there aren’t in the mood to compete tonight. A referee comes out and says, per Scott D’Amore, there will be a tag match right now.

Backstage: Scott D’Amore is furious at Fire ‘N Flava’s disrespectful attitude towards Jazz. D’Amore says Fire ‘N Flava are going to defend their Knockouts Tag Team Championships against Jazz and Jordynne Grace at Rebellion.

Post-Match: Sami Callihan grabs a mic and calls out Trey Miguel. Trey responds by heading to the ring. Callihan wants to tell Trey how proud he is of his performance at Hardcore Justice. He says he saw his passion. Trey doesn’t care. Callihan asks The Prince of Mid Air if it felt good to let in that rage and let it run its course. Callihan wants to continue sharpening that rage by being Trey’s mentor. He sticks his hand out. Trey refuses to accept his offer to be his protégé.

Callihan reveals that he was the one who took out Tommy Dreamer so Trey could be part of the main event. Trey is in shock. Callihan brings up his original statement again. Trey still declines. Callihan lays a low blow and a powerful clothesline. Trey crawls over to the ropes with rage in his eyes. Callihan throws a chair at Trey’s face before sending him through it with a lethal suplex. After taking that awful beating, Trey still rises to his feet.

Up next, the Unified Impact World Champion Rich Swann and the  AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will take part in a press conference!

The Press Conference:

AEW is being represented by Tony Khan, Jerry Lynn and Kenny Omega. Impact is being represented by Rich Swann and Scott D’Amore.

The first question is from The senior editor of “Sporting News,” Andreas Hale, and it’s for Rich Swann. He is asked how is going to go about wrestling one of the greatest wrestlers in the world, especially since he’s considered an underdog in this fight. Swann says he has been battling adversity his whole life. That has prepared him to face guys like Omega. He promises to bring his A-game to the match.

The second question comes from Mike Johnson from PWInsider. He wants to know how Impact will equip itself if Omega were to win the Impact World Championship? Tony Khan answers the question first by saying he knows for a fact Omege will be taking the Impact World Title back to AEW. Scott D’Amore says whoever wins, he knows both promotions will work a schedule out, so that champion can continue entertaining fans on both brands.

Before Josh Mathews can get to the third question, the AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Don Callis make their way into the press conference. The third question comes from Gareth A Davies of “Telegraph Sport,” and it’s towards Don Callis. They want to know which side is Callis on, Impact or AEW? Callis makes his way to the podium. Callis reminds everyone that while Rich Swann was out of action, he was the one who kept tabs on Swann’s recovery. Now that he’s healthy again, Callis is shifting his focus on Kenny Omega. He thinks it’s time to hear from Omega.

Omega walks up to the podium. He says these sorts of press conferences are nothing new to him. In fact, they’re natural. Omega says he was put on this earth to make a difference. He thinks Swann was put on this earth because he loves wrestling, and loves being in it. Omega doesn’t believe Swann belongs in this history-making event. He says when people look back on this match, he thinks people aren’t going to care or remember Swann. Omega says this is the last time he’ll be cordial to Swann. He puts his hand out and then proceeds to slap Swann. Swann jumps him. Security comes out to separate both men. This is how this week’s show concludes. Thanks for watching!
