Samoa Joe approaches Sting in the back and asks if he needs help with anything, and Sting tells him everything is going well since they got rid of Eric Bischoff. Joe says he appreciates the shot Sting gave him, but that won't shut him up and he might hurt someone again if he doesn't get what he wants. Sting says he gets it, and Joe leaves as Eric Bischoff comes up and says he needs to get his son in the ring, and he knows Sting would want to fire him but he can't. He says they have guaranteed contracts, but if Sting helps him here he will let him rewrite his contract. Sting says he will talk to Garrett first and Flair looks worried but Eric says he knows Sting will do the right thing.
Christopher Daniels is in the back talking about how he has been on a great winning streak, but the camera guy asks him about losing an "I Quit" match to AJ Styles. Daniels says he never quit because AJ played dubbed audio over the speakers, and even if he did quit he was the one who walked out of the ring that night. He says he deserves title shots because he has been great since worrying about himself, and he even beat RVD last week. He says the ring crew was sloppy and if he got hurt with a screwdriver Impact would suffer and the ratings would go down. Daniels says he doesn't need a weapon to beat anybody, then RVD comes up behind him and they fight in a hallway until Daniels runs off, and RVD yells to him that they will meet at Turning Point.
