-The 3 Live Kru, along with Kip James, come out to the ring. BG James thanks the TNA officials for letting the Kru come out to air their dirty laundry. James says as much as he loves Killings and Konnan, he loves Kip too. He says the Kru is his family, but so is Kip. Konnan says Kip always latches on to someone else, he used to be Honky Tonk's manager, in DX someone else was the real star, and he almost married some guy named Palumbo. BG gets mad and says Konnan never gives Kip a chance. BG says he needs an up or down vote now. He says he has never lied to the group. He asks Killings first if he allows Kip as a member of the family. Killings says he never has doubted BG from day one, and he says "any family of yours is a family of mine." BG says, "Now this is the hard part." Konnan screams, "No this isn't the hard part!" BG yells. He says Konnan hasn't stopped bitching. BG says he's either "with us or against us." BG asks Konnan if he's ever given him a reason to doubt his word? Konnan says no. Konnan says he's going to keep it real. Konnan says "If he's your brother, and he's your brother, he's my brother." They all unite and BG James calls them the 4 Live Kru.

Kip James gets on the mic and says, "If you're not down with the 4 Live Kru, I've got 4 words for ya....I'm Kip James Bitch!" We then immedietely go to a commercial.

Bobby Roode comes into the ring and breaks a hockey stick across Kip's back as the ref is distracted with all the commotion on the outside. Jarrett then nails the Stroke and gets the pinfall. I liked the way they handled Gayda's debut, and it should be interesting to see where they go with this. In a way, it's kind of funny that the two hottest young women in the company are fighting over one the oldest wrestlers in the company, but hey, I guess that's what you get when you have all "the stroke."
Winner: Jeff Jarrett
-BG James then comes out and gets into a fight with Jarrett and Roode. The 2 on 1 is to much, and they work over BG. Killings and Konnan then run out. They clean house.
