From The Impact Zone at Universal Studios Orlando in Orlando, Florida:
Hosted by “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Taz.
MVP announced that he wants an even playing field based on ability and not shady alliances and backstabbing. TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus thought otherwise as he announced that “The Monster” Abyss is under his control. MVP understood, as long as Abyss is in the ring with Magnus. Magnus agreed as MVP informed him that he will harm him if he is assaulted ever again. MVP asked Abyss if he wants a shot at the TNA World title, Magnus disagreed, but MVP booked the both of them and Samoa Joe in a Three-Way Match!!!
Joe arrived and stated that he asked for a fair shot, and a fight ensued. Magnus and Abyss assaulted Joe as MVP tried to stop it, but Eric Young made the save. Eric explained that it’s his fault for Abyss, and told him to put him in the match to make things right. MVP told him that he respects him, but hasn’t earned it yet. Eric stated he is following the phrase “Motivate, Validate and Participate”.
Joe stated that no one doubts him, and MVP added him to the match. Joe got in Eric’s face, and they both fought until MVP booked the both of them in a match!!!

Angelina Love demanded an explanation from Velvet Sky on why she was ignoring her. Velvet stated that it was Angelina’s assault on TNA Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne. Angelina criticized Velvet for losing her edge and told her to choose a side.
Bully Ray came out with many tables asking the fans how many of them should Bobby Roode go through. He voiced his happiness on Roode not being in charge, but it went south as Roode appeared. Roode ranted about those he screwed over, but Bully didn’t want to hear it. In the end, Bully went through a table.
Mike Knox continued his visit through his hometown as a girl in booty shorts explained how she lost her moneymaker. And, she told him to straighten things out with his dad.
NOTE: It’s ironic how when she said moneymaker, the camera went straight to her butt.

ANALYSIS: The opening of the show went on too long, but the two stand-out matches made up for it.
