Hogan says he is trying to tear him and Matt Morgan apart but he can’t do that. He says that he and Matt Morgan are the future tag team champions and calls out Chavo for a match.

* Christian York comes out and says for 16 years he has traveled dark roads to get here and today he feels like the luckiest SOB in the world. With luck on his side, he is going to call out someone he respects and admires: Jeff Hardy.
* In a non-title match, Jeff Hardy defeated Christian York. Much more competitive than one would expect, even seeing Christian York hit the twist of fate on Hardy.
* After, the two shook hands and Hardy raised York’s hand before celebrating. Bobby Roode stormed the ring and laid out York with a spinebuster then speared Hardy before yelling in Hardy’s face while holding the belt.

* Taeler Hendrix came out and said that she has worked hard since winning Gut Check and wants to call out her original gutcheck opponent Tara.
* In a non-title match, Tara defeated Taeler Hendrix via the widow’s peak. Taeler had a more competitive match. Tara got in Taeler’s face while she was still laid out from the peak.
* Eric Young defeated Robbie E and Jessie Godderz in a triple threat via a roll up on Jessie, forcing Jessie to put on the turkey suit. Jesse put it on and he and Tara left. After, Aces & 8’s attacked Eric Young. They handcuffed ODB to the turnbuckle as they attacked him with a bat and hammer. Al Snow, Simon Diamond and D’Lo Brown ran down and Aces & 8’s bailed. Eric Young was stretchered out.
* Christopher Daniels and Kazarian came out. Daniels said at Final Resolution it will be him and AJ for one last time. He and Kazarian said they are thankful for the fact that AJ has proved everything that they have said about him being a failure to be true and Kazarian calls out AJ for a match and Daniels goes to the back.
* AJ Styles defeated Kazarian via the Pele.
* Austin Aries comes out and says he came out and said he has been telling everyone that he has big things planned. He said that the deck is being stacked against the greatest man that ever lived. He said there is one name responsible for all of that and that is Hogan. He said that since it is Open Fight Night he wants his ” fake tan bleached blond ugly ass” out here and then specifies he is referring to Brooke. She comes out to the stage and Aries says he is sick and tired of the name Hogan. For the last 25 year, he has only seen Hogan. Aries says that she is probably as sick of it as he is. He says it is probably hard to keep her life private. Says maybe it could have been “Mrs Brooke Trump or Mrs Brooke McMahon” and never thought it would be “Mrs Bully Ray.” She said knowing her dad he won’t let her give her name away and says that it will be “Mrs Bully Ray Hogan.” He shows a clip of the two arguing from two weeks ago then shows the clip of Tara and ODB walking into her office with the two sitting together. Aries says if she was that hungry for love she didn’t have to settle for the turkey because he would have given her all the stuffing she would need. Hogan’s music hits and he walks down to the ring, Bully Ray charges past him and Aries left to ringside and was laughing. Hogan looked at Brooke until Brooke ran away crying. Hogan gave Ray a bad look and walked out as Ray seemed disappointed while Aries continued to laugh and smirk his way to the back.
* Brooke Tessmacher defeated Madison Rayne with a roll-up.
* Zema Ion defeated Kenny King and Kid Kash. Kenny hit a springboard blockbuster on Kid Kash then Ion threw King out of the ring and stole the pin.
