TNA Impact Wrestling
A video package highlighting Gunner's life and career in TNA so far opens the show, hyping tonight's World Championship match. Dixie Carter and Magnus are in the arena backstage somewhere. Dixie tells everyone to stop second guessing her. Magnus gives a pep talk, of sorts, to the team, but Ethan Carter III is noticeably annoyed by it. Magnus tells him they need to get on the same page, and they shake hands.
We cut "live" to the arena, and Magnus and Dixie are already in the ring – the magical power of post-production. MVP makes his way to the ring to a massive reaction from the UK crowd. The champ tells him that if he ever got in the ring with him, "nine years" would be nothing compared to how long it would take to recover. Shots fired at his past criminal life. The crowd chants "paper champion" and MVP tells Magnus a real champion wouldn't have to tell people every chance they got. We get down to business, as MVP wants an answer for his Lethal Lockdown challenge. Magnus says they accept, but he will not be captaining his team because he has to defend the world title against Samoa Joe. He calls MVP a "bitch" and the two start brawling.
Ethan Carter III hits the ring and attacks MVP from behind. The Wolves are shown attacking security backstage, and Gunner evens the odds. Magnus bails as his challenger hits the ring, and the four men stare each other down.
