Storm said he told her that and that she wanted him to respond to Angle and Storm hit Angle.
Jarrett, Ray, and Daniels join Angle to attack Storm until A.J. Styles, Ken Anderson, and Rob Van Dam come to the ring to help Storm. Security had to separate everyone. When Storm was being taken up the ramp, Impact Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Bobby Roode came out. Storm got in a cheap shot on Roode, laying him out.
Match Number Two: Velvet Sky, Brooke Tessmacher, and Tara defeated Madison Rayne, Winter, and Angelina Love in a lingerie match. All six came out in their own variations of lingerie and posed before the match began. Mickie James, who appeared to be injured, came out and prevented Madison from cheating. Velvet pinned Madison.
They go backstage to Robbie E, Rob Terry, Eric Young, and former TNA referee Rudy Charles. Charles was holding a turkey suit. Robbie E was saying that Young would never get another shot at the TV title. They talked some more and set up a match later tonight where the loser had to wear the turkey suit.
Jeff Hardy’s music hit and he walked to the ring covered up in a hoodie and wearing a mask. He unmasked and it turned out that it was Jeff Jarrett posing as Hardy. Jarrett ran down Hardy and the fans until Hardy came out and attacked Jarrett. Christopher Daniels and Bully Ray ran out and attacked Hardy. AJ Styles, Ken Anderson, and Rob Van Dam came out to fight them off. Jeff Hardy had to be helped to the back.
Match Number Three: Eric Young defeated Robbie E (with Robbie T) with a piledriver. Robbie E used a weapon during the match to pin Young, but referee Rudy Charles found out that Robbie cheated and the match was restarted. After the match, Young took the mic and said that because Robbie E appears to be knocked out, they need to find someone else to have the turkey suit put on. The suit was put on Robbie T and then he chased Young to the back.
Match Number Four: AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Ken Anderson, and Rob Van Dam (with James Storm) defeated Bobby Roode, Jeff Jarrett, Christopher Daniels, and Bully Ray (with Kurt Angle) in an elimination match. Styles and Hardy were the survivors in this match. The match started off three on three with Roode doing commentary with Taz and Mike Tenay and Hardy did not come to the ring at the start of the match as a result of the earlier attack. Anderson was eliminated first and then Roode came to the ring and connected with a low blow to eliminate himself. Daniels eliminated Van Dam with a roll up and a handful of tights. This left A.J. Styles alone to face Daniels, Jarrett, and Ray. Hardy’s music hit and he made his way down to the ring and eliminated both Daniels and Jarrett. While this was happening, Angle and Storm brawled to the back. Styles got the final elimination pinning Ray. Roode came out after the match and laid out both Hardy and Styles and shouted in AJ’s face before leaving.
In a match for Xplosion, Kazarian defeated Magnus with a rollup.
