Hulk Hogan is shown talking to the four title qualifiers in his office about the show format, and he says there are going to be alot of changes. He passes the format sheet around and asks if it is OK with Bully Ray, and he says yes it is. Kurt Angle asks what it means, and he lays things out and he says they have a situation with Bobby Roode becoming the longest reigning champion. AJ Styles and Kurt Angle argue about how much the longest title reign means, and Hulk says the normal ways they produce shows aren't working. Kurt says he won more titles than anybody in the room, but Bully says Kurt only won more singles titles. AJ says the only ones that should matter are in TNA, and Hulk asks Bully to tell him why he should be the guy with the shot.

Bully Ray wants to know why he still has to prove himself, because he intimidates everyone and he is just as tough as any guy that Hulk every faced before. He says he is the toughest and hardest hitting guy there is, then AJ says he is being selfish but he wants the longest title reign for himself. Bully mentions Jeff Hardy and how he is sitting there saying nothing, and he says his plan is working but Hardy says he thinks the fans should decide who gets the shot. Hulk says he thinks everyone can beat Bobby Roode, and they need to stop him, but he needs to eliminate Bully because he has only been a main event guy for a year. Bully gets pissed and asks him if that's what he really thinks, and Hulk says he does, then Bully leaves and says Eric Bischoff was right about him.

Gail Kim comes out and says it is great being her because she is the most dominant champion in TNA history, and she is the one who built the Knockouts division. She says she would go as far as saying she is the most important person there, but there is one blemish and she wants to take care of it. Gail says it's wrong that a man and a woman are the Knockout Tag Champions, and she and Madison are calling out Mr. and Mrs. ODB right now.
