New World Heavyweight Champion James Storm comes to the ring and says he watched Wrestlemania 3 with his father and told him one day he would make it to the top of wrestling. He says he didn't have help from anyone, and he dedicates his win to his father and to all the fans for helping his dream come true. Storm asks Fortune to come to the ring and he says they have changed Impact Wrestling and he knows Bobby Roode was screwed out of the title at Bound For Glory. He knows Roode worked just as hard as anyone and Storm tells him he wants him to have the first shot as his title and they shake hands then get interrupted by Samoa Joe.
Joe says he used to fight the good fight like them, and Storm broke through, but he still sees the same guys that keep everybody down and keep title shots in the family like Immortal. He asks if AJ and Kaz are going to get the next shots at him, but says he is going to be different and give the next match to Joe. Storm says he looks at Joe and sees a dumb bitch, and his window of opportunity closed so maybe he will give AJ and Kaz a shot because they bust their asses. He says Joe lost to Crimson and Roode recently and he has no right to jump to the front of the line, and Sting comes out and says he is going to settle this by having Roode vs Joe tonight for a title shot next week.
Christopher Daniels vs Rob Van Dam
RVD reverses an armbar into a leg scissors takedown, then Daniels hits a shoulder block and goes for a quick roll up. He throws RVD into the corner and throws his head into the turnbuckle, but RVD fights back and hits a standing moonsault for two. Daniels drop toe holds him into the corner then whips him across the ring and chokeslams him and goes up top. He misses the BME and RVD kicks him in the face then hits a few clotheslines, and follows it with a monkey flip and springboard heel kick. (Cont'd…)
