Before they face each other tomorrow night on Countdown to No Surrender, Mike Bailey and Jonathan Gresham join forces to battle the reigning IMPACT World Tag Team Champions, the Motor City Machine Guns! Shelley tweaks his knee in the early going, allowing Bailey to gain control with double team offense to the Guns. Gresham turns the Guns’ own offense against them, then traps Sabin in a pinning predicament for two. The Guns bounce back with a Magic Killer to Gresham but it’s not enough. Gresham hit a delayed vertical suplex, then makes the tag to Bailey. He ties up the legs of Shelley and simultaneously delivers an innovative suplex to Sabin. Bailey soars with a springboard Moonsault, colliding with Sabin on the outside. Gresham locks in the Figure Four on Shelley as Bailey drives his knees into his gut. Sabin powerbombs Bailey into Gresham, breaking up the hold in the process. Gresham inadvertently strikes his own partner, leading to the Dirt Bomb for three.

The next step of Callihan’s initiation process will see him team up with the leader of The Design to battle Frankie Kazarian and Yuya Uemura! Callihan takes Kazarian off his feet with a running back elbow before Deaner demands to be tagged in. Moments later, the tide has turned following a flurry of double team offense, culminating with a rolling neckbreaker from Kazarian. Uemura hits the ropes but Deaner delivers a cheap shot from the apron. Deaner distracts the referee, allowing Kon to take out Kazarian with a clothesline. Deaner crashes and burns on a top rope headbutt attempt and Uemura makes the tag to a fired up Kazarian. The pace quickens as Kazarian hits a springboard leg drop on Callihan. This time it’s Angels who provides a distraction as Callihan connects with an Exploder suplex on Kazarian. Uemura unloads on both of his opponents, almost putting Deaner away with a top rope crossbody. Callihan has the match won but Deaner calls for the tag. Just as Callihan is about to tag him in, Deaner drops from the apron and leaves him to fend for himself. Kazarian locks in a submission, forcing Callihan to tap out.

The X-Division Title will be defended in Monster’s Ball for the first time ever as the rivalry between Trey Miguel and Crazzy Steve reaches its boiling point! Of course, Monster’s Ball means there are no disqualifications, no count outs, and anything goes. Steve continues to play mind games with Miguel as his laugh can be heard echoing throughout the IMPACT Zone and fans are seen wearing masquerade masks. Steve hits a back body drop into multiple steel chairs. Miguel bounces back with a running dropkick but just as he’s about to use a trash can, Steve goes low with the staple gun. Steve places a trash can over Miguel and hits a running cannonball in the corner. Moments later, Miguel creates separation with a swinging neckbreaker. Miguel introduces a back of thumbtacks into the match but it comes back to bite him as Steve hits a Black Hole Slam. Both men are down following a double clothesline into the tacks. Steve retrieves “Janice”, the signature weapon of Abyss but Miguel fights him off. Steve instead sends him crashing through a table with the Death Valley Driver. Steve continues his violent assault with a Destroyer into a steel chair but it’s not enough to keep Miguel down. Steve uses Janice on the forehead of Miguel. Miguel delivers a low blow, then hits Roll of the Dice off the apron through a barbed wire board. Miguel drags Steve back into the ring and scores the pinfall to retain.
