-Backstage, Tommy Dreamer cuts a promo about Bully Ray being one of his best friends, and all the matches they've had over the years. This promo made almost zero sense if you didn't know Bully Ray showed up at Dreamer's House of Hardcore promotion in December, attacking him and Terry Funk.
-Ethan Carter comes down to the ring and talks about all the "great wrestlers" he's beaten in his "legendary" career. Because tonight is TNA #OldSchool, he's calling out one of the guys who made his career possible…
Ethan Carter III def. Dewey Barnes
Barnes came down from working the merch station, and the announcers give him a hard time for already being in his wrestling gear. Carter calls him a disappointment to his family, Barnes attacks him, and EC3 plants him with the One-Percenter.
Mike's Thoughts: Nothing here worth reporting, really. I'm a big EC3 fan, but his mic time probably went on a few minutes too long. The crowd is pretty non-responsive tonight.
-Another backstage promo, this time from Bully Ray. Bully says he has very few friends in the world, but he thought Tommy Dreamer was one of them. Dreamer didn't invite him to House of Hardcore, so he showed up anyways and attacked and put down the "old dog" Terry Funk. He promises to do the same to Dreamer.
