The show opened with a match between Jake Something and Chris Bey. The pair went back and forth throughout the bout. Towards the end of the match, Jake caught Bey and hit the Black Hole slam to pick up the win via pinfall.

Following the match, the Bullet Club’s Guerillas of Destiny attacked Jake Something from behind. Mike Bailey stormed into the ring to help even the odds, however he fell prey to the numbers advantage after Jay White joined the assault.

After neutralizing Jake and Bailey, the Guerillas of Destiny issued a challenge to the IMPACT World Tag Team Champions, The Good Brothers.

Later in the night, Ace Austin offered to be Mike Bailey’s ally which backfired on him as Gail Kim announced an eight-man tag team match next week pitting Mike Bailey, Jake Something, Madman Fulton & Ace Austin against the team of Jay White, Chris Bey and the Guerillas of Destiny.

In another segment, The Good Brothers and Violent By Design decided to continue their alliance to fend off the threat of The Bullet Club.
