#2 LAX vs. Holmes and Coleman; Decay brawl:
The opening match of the night saw LAX (The Latin American Xchange) defeat Jake Wayne Holmes and Joe Coleman. Konnan cut a promo after the match and stated that LAX was back in the cut and was serious like a late period. The LAX manager went on to introduce all the members of the faction when Decay came out and interrupted the segment. Decay and LAX broke into a brawl and security separated them after a few brief exchanges.
#3 Karen Jarrett and Bruce Prichard:
This segment was followed by Karen Jarrett coming out to the Impact Zone. She announced that GFW (Global Force Wrestling) and Impact had officially merged. Sonjay Dutt came out and said that that was amazing to be back in the Impact Zone. He reminisced that many years ago he was the pioneer of the X Division and alluded to the fact that he and his fellow X Division stars made it the cornerstone of the company.
Dutt requested Karen to make the X-Division championship match the main-event of the evening and asked her to include him in said match. He claimed that he wanted to do something he’d never done before and win the X Division title. Everett came out and stated that he respected Dutt but asserted that he wanted to fight Trevor Lee all by himself. Gregory Shane Helms and Trevor Lee interrupted, with Helms saying that he ran the X Division and that no one asked for Sonjay to come back.
Bruce Prichard then interrupted the heels and stated that Helms didn’t run anything. Speaking on behalf of Dutch Mantel, Prichard declared that the X-Division championship match would be the main event of the show and that it would be a 6-way matchup. This was followed by Helms and Lee attacking Everett and Dutt, but the babyfaces fought them off. The segment ended with Everett and Dutt holding the X Division belt replete with a staredown.
