Bobby Roode comes out to the ring and says it is embarassing as champion to think about being in a group, because he was the star and leader of Fortune. He says it is his fault for letting the other guys ride his coattails, but they should have known he would eventually scrape them off of his boot like the pieces of crap they are. Roode tells them it's time to grow up because he won't let them stand in his shadow anymore, then James Storm comes out to interrupt him. Storm asks him if it looks like he will stand in a jackass's shadow, then tells Roode to admit that he jumped him or he'll come kick his ass. Storm counts to three and heads to the ring but Roode tells security to stop him and says it wasn't him, because he wouldn't have to stoop that low since he already beat him before.
Roode says he was in the locker room and he has guys to speak up for him, and Storm says he will find the guy tonight, then tells Roode he is guilty by association. Storm says he is going to kick his ass anyways and charges the ring but he gets held back by security as AJ Styles sneaks in behind Roode. They start to brawl and AJ gets the better of Roode until security breaks them up, and they each get a few more shots in before the guards get them apart and AJ gets a microphone. AJ asks if this is what is has come to, and says Roode screwed Fortune and he thought beating him up would feel good, but Roode can take a beating.
AJ says he will make Roode feel pain when he takes his title, and Roode tells him to get to the back of the line because he is done and he could've beaten him all night on Sunday. AJ goes after him until Sting comes out and says he is feeling crazy tonight, and he will let Storm recover from his attack but he is going to let AJ have another shot. He says he heard Roode mention he can beat AJ all night, and he is going to get the chance at Final Resolution when they face each other in a 30 minute ironman match. Roode goes after Dixie Carter in the crowd and AJ comes back to make the save, but Roode shoves Dixie into him and beats the hell out of AJ until some backstage agents run him off.
