Hosted by Todd Keneley, “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Taz.
Bad Influence (“The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels and Kazarian) enter the ring wearing kilts, and their faces painted like Braveheart, insulting all of Great Britain by saying that they love Scotland. Daniels declared that if he ever becomes TNA World Heavyweight Champion, he will defend the title against all of Britain. The returning Magnus arrives, berated Bad Influence, and fought them until they left the ring. Afterwards, Magnus then issued an Open Fight Night challenge to the one who assaulted him in November 2012: Devon.

Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan arrive as he asks TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan to put aside his opinions about him, because of the fact that they both have a common enemy: Aces and Eights. Bully knew that Brooke couldn’t get her dad to lift the suspension, so, they turned to “The Icon” Sting. Hulk arrived, and Sting hoped that he would give Bully what he wanted. Hulk stated that he has always done the right thing, and reinstates Bully!!! Hulk then books a tag team tables match, where Bully and Sting will face two of Aces and Eights next week!!!
