How will Eric Young retaliate against MVP? Find out as Impact Wrestling airs at 9 EST!
9:00: EY is shown outside waiting on MVP for some conversation. A limo pulls up and EY opens the door after MVP. Security pulls him off as MVP gets out and smugly watches EY being carried away.
EY comes down to the ring and reveals he wishes what happened was just a dream. He says someone he trusted turned his back on him; someone he thought was different and was going to invoke change. He makes a promise to everyone that what happened wasn’t going to happen on his watch. He isn’t going to wait until Slammiversary.
MVP is shown on the Titan Tron. He says that the true power is being the champion. He says that EY becoming the champion was all a part of his plan and that MVP is going to take it from him. EY says he is a fighting champion and he is fighting MVP tonight. MVP says he will put security around himself to deal with EY. Even if EY does get through security, MVP says he still doesn’t like EY’s chances. Eric Young runs toward the back.
Rockstar Spud drives Dixie Carter to her house. Apparently Bully got there first. A sign that says “Dixie fears Bully” is shown. She gets out of the car.
Willow does another creepy promo about his match tonight against Magnus and Bram.
9:15: Willow, on the staircase, awaits his opponents with umbrella in hand. Magnus and Bram close in on him and they make their way to the ring to officially start the match.

Kim calls out The Beautiful People because she is ready to fight. The Beautiful People answer. Angelina says that Kim is a good wrestler, but she isn’t, and should never be, the champion. Love climbs to the apron and proclaims they accept her challenge while Sky attacks from behind. A ref comes out and starts a match between Kim and Sky.

Kazarian gets in a minor confrontation with The Freak, but The Freak hits him. Crazzy Steve runs around and does some weird stuff. He grabs the balloons and does a cross body on them. They don’t pop, so he stomps on them to pop them. The other members of the Menagerie pose. The ref disqualifies Crazzy Steve. That was a weird segment.
