IMPACT Wrestling opens with the OGz, Homicide and Hernandez, in tag team action. They make quick work of some local talent before King gets on the mic. He says the reason he took out Konnan was because he wanted to run LAX and he was tired of waiting! King insists that Konnan didn’t give the same opportunities to Homicide and Hernandez as he did to Santana and Ortiz, and that’s why they’ve sided with him. King throws out the challenge for a 5150 Street Fight between LAX and the OGz at Slammiversary! Will LAX accept?
