Impact Wrestling Opener:
Immortal is in the ring and Bully Ray tells everyone to sit down and shut up, because they are Immortal. He puts everyone in the group over, but the crowd boos them all, then says Ken Anderson is an asshole. He says Fortune and Immortal have gone back and forth for months, and Anderson asks if he said this town isn't big enough for the both of them. He tells Ray that the ring isn't big enough for the both of them because he volunteered him for a match against Kurt Angle, and he screwed him out of the win. He prays it was worth it, because Anderson is going to get him back, and Ray asks who he is again? He says he is the guy who lost the title after being with them for a week, and that is the keyword: weak. Ray says he is in charge and he will become the next champion and calls Anderson a piece of dog crap.
Anderson says he has an idea, and neither one of them have a match at Hardcore Justice, so he says they settle it there. He waits for Ray's answer, and started singing until Ray spits in his face and they start to go at it until Fortune comes out. Kaz says it sounded like Immortal was going to call them out to the ring, and they should consider this their RSVP. They rush the ring and everyone starts fighting until Fortune clears the ring and they check on James Storm, who may have hurt his back.
Madison Rayne vs Miss Tessmacher
Tessmacher backs Rayne into the corner but Rayne charges out and throws her by the hair then chokes her with legs and slams her head into the mat. Rayne mocks Mickie at commentary and gets rolled up by Tessmacher for the surprise win.
Rayne beats her up after the bell and Mickie says she can't stand to let this happen, and heads to the ring. Angelina Love cuts her off and starts to fight but Mickie knocks her down until Winter comes out and hits Mickie with the title. They pose over her on the ramp and drape the belt over her back before leaving.
Winner - Miss Tessmacher
