Bully is shown talking to Aces and 8′s. He says this is what it’s meant to be. A club resurrected, reborn. They thought he was dead, and thought he split, and thought he would never trust Ray again. But they fooled them all. Tonight, it’s all about their colors, and their championship. Tonight is about their creed. When you right with the Aces and 8′s, you never walk alone. It’s worth noting that no one other that Ray was shown in that whole segment.
- The lights dim, and Ethan Carter the Third makes his way down to the ring for his TNA debut. Dixie Carter’s nephew will be facing the opponent that his aunt hand-picked for him, and it’s revealed to be Norv Fernum.
Ethan Cater III vs. Norv Fernum
Fernum was a skinny guy billed from San Diego. They gave Carter a big time entrance to put him over. Carter locked up with him and nailed a hiptoss. Carter controlled Fernum and showed a lot of swagger and arrogance.
Carter pretty much wiped the mat with Fernum and locked in a chinlock. Fernum tried to fire back but was small and ineffective against Carter. He then nailed a pair of dropkicks and a flying bodypress on Carter for a two count.
Carter cut him off and nailed a drilling DDT similar to Dean Ambrose's and scored the pin.

JB is standing alongside Bully Ray and Brooke. Bully says AJ reeks of fear. A couple of weeks ago, AJ said Bully would have to kill him to beat him, and Bully was reminded of the lyrics of his favorite song, ‘do you know where you are, you’re in the jungle baby, you’re going to die’. Ray doesn’t want AJ to die, he wants far worse. He wants Styles to have to live with himself. To live with the fact that he lost to Ray. He wants him to get into the pickup truck, drive into his trailer park, and into the double-wide he calls a mansion. He wants him to look into his family’s eyes and see the disappointment. He wants AJ to live with it because it’ll kill him. He’s Bully Ray. Welcome to his jungle.
- Another video package for AJ Styles, this one actually includes his opponent though, as it shows the events that led to tonight’s title match.
