(3) Gut Check
JB introduces both men, with Jay Bradley getting some random heat from the Impact Zone. I'm assuming it's because he's from Chicago? Maybe his short affiliation with WWE? Regardless, the two trade blows in the middle of the ring, with Cage getting the upper hand. He tries for a clothesline, but eats a big boot from the much bigger Jay Bradley. Following a running knee drop, Bradley lines up his finishing lariat, but gets dropkicked to the apron. Cage climbs to the top rope – not the top top turnbuckle – and connects with a superplex off the top rope. He teases another clothesline, but Bradley ducks under it and delivers the lariat for the win.
Winner: Jay Bradley
The Aces & Eights are shown backstage partying. Ken Anderson screams at them and is shown in the corner. He says there's a time and a place for having a party, but this is serious and something needs to be done about Kurt Angle. He kicks out the women and they make their way to the table. The leader says the first order of business tonight is Mike Knox, who still has a pretty impressive beard going on. He says Knox has one change to earn his spot tonight, and he either makes it right, or is gone.
Joseph Park makes his way to the ring and says that he's back from wrestling camp. He calls down Hulk Hogan to the ring. The Hulkster makes his way to the ring, much to the pleasure of the Impact Zone. Hogan says he wants to be the first to congratulate Park on his brief stint in wrestling camp. However, he says there's business in the back he needs to get to, so he better make it short. Park says he wants to thank Hogan for giving the inspiration to get into the ring. He begs Hogan, not as a lawyer, but as a wrestler to let him have his match against the Aces & Eights. Hogan is frustrated and says Park can have whatever match he wants. Park hugs him and leaves the ring.
Brooke Hogan shows up on the screen and says she's going to come out there right now and deal with their business in public, if he refuses to deal with it privately. After a commercial break, Brooke makes her way out. She says that Hulk has been ignoring her, and refusing to answer her texts and phone calls. She says she has a question, and it's going to determine the future of their relationship for a very long time. She asks if Hogan will bring Bully Ray back from suspension, and the Hulkster says "no" and throws the mic on the ground before walking out of the Impact Zone.
