Winner and STILL TNA Knockouts Champion: Madison Rayne
We get a Samoa Joe promo backstage. Joe says he’s beaten up and dominated to get where he is today. Not too long ago, he’d have called Magnus a brother, someone he’d be proud to walk to the ring with. Joe brought him in and they were tag team champions. When they started the Main Event Mafia, Joe brought him in so he’s be great, but Magnus threw it away for the easy way, the easy path. Joe will teach him there’s no easy path to greatness. Joe is going to bash it into Magnus’ skull again and again until he’s unconscious and realizes what he’s done. Magnus is a paper champion, and Joe has come to collect his belt. Be ready.
This leads into a video package highlighting some of the history between Joe and Magnus, especially recently.
