- Beer Money, Inc. defeated Lethal Consequences in a quarter final match in the Team 3D Invitational.

- Backstage, Jeff Jarrett said that Steiner is not a happy man, but that he doesn't give a damn and says, "Screw Steiner, screw the Mafia and screw Mick Foley." Eric Young walks up and asks Jarrett what he has to do to get noticed. Jarrett books Young in a tag match with a TNA newcomer later tonight.
- Backstage, we see some fighting between Jenna Morasca and Sharmell in the MEM locker room.
- Backstage, AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels are in Jarrett's office. Daniels thanks Jarrett for bringing him back. Jarrett said it is guys like them who make it worth it.

- Cactus Jack's "Smack Attack" takes place with weapons at ringside and barbed wire attached to the ring ropes. Foley then joins the commentary for the main event.
- Jeff Jarrett defeated Scott Steiner. After the match, Kurt Angle comes down and gives Jarrett an Angle Slam and put him in an Ankle Lock. Steiner helped as well. Foley leaves commentary and chases off Angle and Steiner. Foley then took out Jarrett with the chair and left him laying. Styles and Daniels ran down to make the save. Jarrett took the mic and said he knew six months ago that Foley was a maniac and the next time he sees him he will stick a pink slip up his ass. The lights then go out and Bobby Lashley's music hits. Lashley appears at the top of the ramp and stares down to the ring. Angle and Steiner laugh and applaud Lashley.
