Garrett Bischoff finds Bully in the back, and says that he knows he doesn't have the same kind of issues with Aces & Eights, but he lets him know that he's on Bully's side tonight. Bully tells Garrett it takes a man to say what he said to him in the middle of a hallway… They're cut off by some guy, who tells them Aces & Eights are right outside. They rush out of the hallway to find Sting and the gang already waiting. The two groups collide and brawl in the back, with Team TNA getting the better of the encouter. Sting once again yells out that a "mask is coming off" later on tonight.
(3) ODB vs. Jesse (w/ Tara)
ODB carries the bulk of the action early on, with Jesse leaving the ring to be with Tara every time he gets attacked. Eventually Tara and Jesse crawl into the ring, being chased by ODB, but Jesse gets caught. She heads up to the top rope and repeatedly smashes Jesse's head – rather provocatively – into the top turn buckle while she's sitting on it. She jumps off the top, but Jesse rolls out of the way. Once again he finds Tara and the two kiss, but ODB catches him from behind and hits a scoop slam. She puts him over her knee and spanks away as Tara gets up on the apron and freaks out. ODB confronts the champion, but Jesse rolls her up from behind for the three-count.
