OFFICIAL RESULT: James Storm @ 20:00
-James Storm earns 20-points and has the early lead in the Bound For Glory Series.
-Storm grabs the mic and says that when he was on Impact last, he thought his luck ran out. He spent time with his family and on his farm, which he built with blood, sweat and tears, just like his wrestling career. He said his home would tell him when t was time, and when his daughter asked if he was going back to wrestling. He knows what wrestling means to him, but he didn't know what it meant to her. And now that he is back, he didn't know what he meant to the fans until he came out at Slammiversary. He made a promise to himself and his little girl and now to the fans. He came back to be the champion, and he will be the champion. Bobby Roode, listen, Storm hopes and prays that Roode is the champion when the series is over, because that will be a bonus to whooping his ass. Sorry about your damn luck.
-Backstage Roode says he is not concerned that Storm is back. Storm is back, and we all know why, because he is jealous of Roode. If Storm wants to come back and take the title, that's fine. He will face him one day. But tonight, he has to beat an asshole.
-AJ and Angle are backstage. Angle is pissed that AJ kicked him in the head and he was out of the game last week and at he PPV. Angle says to get Daniels and Kaz out of his head. Get the shit out of your head man! Angle says to get straight and to forget about Dixie, because he doesn't want to lose the tag titles. They hug it out.
-We see Miss Tessmacher winning the Knockouts Title at Slammiversary.
