Eric says he has a request for MVP, then MVP comes out and Eric says he's no doctor but his right arm is pretty messed up. He says they just saw him win a title shot and MVP is doing a great job, so he's feeling crazy tonight. Eric says he won tonight, so he could win again and he's tired of waiting for something he's waited ten years for. MVP asks if he is hearing this correctly, and Magnus (at commentary) laughs, but MVP says he pays him to be a wrestler, not a commentator, so he should go suit up. Magnus throws his headset off and says they can do this, and it's 'Magnus Rules' tonight, but MVP says it won't happen and he'll lose his title if he's disqualified. MVP says he's not done, so Abyss is banned from ringside, and if anyone helps Magnus they will be fired on the spot.
BP: A bit of a bait and switch, but honestly, you aren't buying Sacrifice for this match. This is a good program to give to the live audience. MVP pulling out all the stops and making stipulations, so this is all but guaranteed to end in a convoluted finish. Yawn.
Dixie Carter shows up and Rockstar Spud surprises her with a party, but Dixie gets pissed and says she doesn't have time for this. Dixie says he turned on her and works for MVP, and Spud tries to reason with her but Dixie snaps and him and walks out of the room. Spud tries to go after her and further explain, but Willow surprises him on the other side of the door and he beats Spud and throws him into some balloons as we cut away.

BP: Good match with a dirty finish that makes sense. All four women got to look pretty strong and show off their movesets.
