- We go to crowd shots from Tupelo, Mississippi as our announcers rundown tonight's show.
- Sting's music hits, he makes his way to the ring with Kurt Angle. Sting is fired up as he "Whoo's" into the mic. Sting cuts a promo on the TNA Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray and says he doesn't want to wait until June 2. He says that is why he asked Hogan to assemble a team for tonight. Sting puts over "The Machine" Kurt Angle and hands him the mic.
Angle says he made D-Lo Brown tap-out last week and that is only the beginning. Angle invites AJ Styles to the ring because he has a question for him. AJ's music hits and he walks to the ring. Angle asks AJ if he is ready for war and will he join the fight against Aces & 8's. The crowd chants, "Yes!" but AJ just stares ahead.
Angle gets in his face and says he is tired of asking and he is demanding an answer. Sting gets in between the two men and tries talking some sense into AJ. The crowd is on fire as Sting says TNA is the house that AJ Styles built. Angle gets back in AJ's face and says he is either with them or against them. AJ walks away and Angle confronts him on the ramp. They trade shots and Angle hits a double-leg as refs come out to break them up.
Sting gets attacked in the ring by Devon, Bully, and Anderson. They hit a 3-D and retreat as Angle runs down to make the save and check on Sting.
- Back from a break to a replay of the attack.
- AJ is walking away in the back as he is chased by cameras asking for comments. He pauses and looks back at the interviewer with a disgusted face as if to say, "Are you serious?" and walks out of the building.
- Tara and Jesse make their entrance followed by Gail Kim. We see footage of Gail's attack on Taryn Terrell from last week. Mickie James is out next as announcers hype her album. Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky is out; ODB is the ref in the ring.
Velvet Sky & Mickie James vs. Tara & Gail Kim
Mickie and Gail face-off. Jesse trips Mickie from the floor and Gail overtakes her in the ring. Gail tags Tara for some double teaming. Todd Keneley hypes Dixie Carter's tweet of Impact's new 9 pm start time starting May 30. Tara hangs Mickie up in the corner and hits a sliding dropkick to her face. Tara smooches with Jesses and Gail tags herself in. Gail keeps the pressure on in the corner on Mickie and prances around.
Mickie hits a kick out of the corner and it lays Gail out on the mat. Both women make tags and Velvet speeds things up against Tara. Gail interferes but Velvet throws her out of the ring. Velvet hits In Your Face to Tara for the win.
Winners by pin: Velvet Sky & Mickie James
Gail argues with Tara in the ring and Tara shoves her. Gail hits a vicious clothesline and drags Tara to the corner and applies the figure-4 on the post like she did last week to Taryn. ODB pulls Gail off.
- We go to Aces & 8's drinking in the back and celebrating. Bully "cheers" and says, "Another icon bites the dust." Anderson says AJ is coming along. D-Lo shows up and Bully confronts him and says D-Lo didn't know about their little get-together and there is some club business to attend to. They all say they are "in" and leave D-Lo, alone.
