Backstage: Ace Austin, Rohit Raju, Shera, and Madman Fulton come in and interrupt Chris Bey’s interview. Bey thinks these four came to recruit him. They inform Bey they aren’t there to recruit him. They’re just there to wish him luck going into the Ultimate X match at Slammiversary all alone.

Winner: No Contest

Backstage: Fire ‘N Flava is not in favor of having Havok and Rosemary just waltz in and demand a match for their titles. They track Scott D’Amore down and confront him.

– Earlier tonight, Kimber Lee took a big loss to the Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo. In the back, Lee and Susan are trying to figure out how to take Purrazzo out. Lee thinks the only way The Virtuosa will be taken down is if Su Yung reemerges and does the job. Susan turns to Lee and asks, “Who’s Su?”

– Jake Something challenges Brian Myers to a singles match next week. If Something loses, he will acknowledge Myers as the best wrestler out there. If Something wins, he wants Myers to recognize his efforts.
