IMPACT World Champion Steve Maclin is in the ring. Maclin admits that PCO caught him off-guard last week.

PCO makes his way down the ramp when he’s jumped by Champagne Singh and Shera. Maclin retreats once again as PCO takes out Singh and Shera with a double clothesline. Director of Authority Santino Marella announces that PCO will face Singh with Shera banned from ringside – next.

PCO connects with the Lungblower, followed by a leg drop off the second rope. PCO connects with the De-Animator on the apron but Singh bounces back by sending him into the steel ring post.

Ace finally has the separation he needs to make the tag to Bey. The pace quickens as Bey goes on the attack. Bey dropkicks Kon off the apron, taking away the tag option for Angels. Bey almost puts Angels away with the Code Red. Kon grabs Bey by the neck as Angels picks him off the ropes with a side Russian leg sweep. Ace sends Angels crashing into his own partner. A B C are about to fly when Deaner stops them on the apron. Sami Callihan neutralizes Deaner out of nowhere, allowing A B C to take out Kon with double superkicks.
