TNA starts with a video package showing us what happened last week on Impact Wrestling.
We go to the ring where all superstars and knockouts are surrounding the ring. Dixie Carter stands in the ring recalling the events of being powerbombed through a table by Bully Ray. Dixie says it's all her own fault that it happened, and that she let down the roster and fans. Dixie continues by saying she appreciates what the wrestlers do, and this is a new chapter for TNA. Ethan Carter III comes out upset and he wants to know who it is, but Dixie Carter says the law is here. The new authority figure is... Bully Ray! Bully Ray walks around the ring shaking hands with the whole roster, and the backstage crew as well. Bully says that Dixie called him, and says that the first thing Dixie said was that she was sorry. Bully says she's sorry for letting down the locker room and the fans. Bully Ray says he is angry with Dixie Carter, and he is coming back to TNA for the fans and for the TNA roster. Bully wants everyone on the apron because they all care about TNA, and Bully says it's the fans choice if he should bring TNA back to how it used to be. Bully Ray and Dixie Carter shake hands and Bully says they are going to have a great wrestling show. Bully announces that a 20 Man Battle Royal will happen right now, and the winner will face Ethan Carter III for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship later tonight.
