We head into Impact and see both Tara and Mickie James brawling in the backstage area. Madison Rayne joins in on the action and attacks Mickie from behind as her and Tara begin to double team Mickie.

The fight finally makes it to the ring where all six enter and fight it out as Ric Flair, Gunner and Murphy head towards the ring.
Flair and security try to calm the situation but Flair is slapped a couple of times by Tara and Mickie before he gets on the microphone and tells them that they will all fight tonight in a match with the Beautiful People and Mickie going against Tara, Madison and Sarita. It doesn’t stop all of the Knockouts from beating each other in the ring, though, as we head into the Impact intro and welcomed to tonight’s show that will feature Robbie E against Jay Lethal in a Jersey Shore Street Fight, a three-way match for the TNA Tag Team Championship with the Motorcity Machine Guns defending against Generation Me and Ink Inc., and Jeff Jarrett will take on Mr. Anderson in a chain match.
We then see D’Angelo Dinero walking in the backstage area and is pushing a casket around. Mike Tenay wonders what that is all about while Taz mentions that he hopes it’s not some bad ass looking to take out an MMA guy as we head into a commercial break.
We are treated to a recap of what happened last week when Jeff Hardy took out Mr. Anderson with a steel chair. We then head into the office where Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair are talking about the situation with the Knockouts and how Flair handled it. Bischoff also talks about Hogan’s whereabouts and how is going out looking for new names for Immortal.

Ric Flair is seen talking with with a female in the back as he is approached by Matt Morgan. Morgan wonders if Bischoff was serious about making Anderson wrestle with a concussion and says he doesn’t agree with the move as concussions are a serious problem.

Match 1: Robbie E. vs. Jay Lethal (Jersey Shore Street Fight)
The match starts and the two begin to brawl in the ring and quickly head out to the floor.

Team 3D wants to take them on in one last match and wants to know their answer. Alex Shelley says they have learned a lot from them over the past three years and asks the crowd who wants to see them go at it on last time. The two sides then share and embrace and shake hands.
Matt Morgan walks into Eric Bischoff’s office and asks if the chain match tonight is all about ratings. Morgan talks about putting Hernandez on the shelf for three months due to a concussion and says it is a bigger issue than they seem to be thinking it is. Bischoff says it isn’t a safety issue as this is purely business and he will face Jeff Jarrett whether he is concussed or not. Morgan then calls him irresponsible as he walks out of the office.
