In memory of Jan Ross.
The show opens with a video package looking at last week's events: Alberto El Patron beat EC3. Laurel Van Ness continues to target Sutter & Allie. Cody Rhodes wants Moose. LAX returned to wreak havoc on the tag team division.
1) Davey Richards (w/Angelina Love) def. Suicide via Shining Wizard in 6 minutes. This was a fair match to kick off the show.
We see footage of LAX playing cards and drinking in a shady building. Konnan is set on winning the Tag Titles.
Backstage, drunk Laurel Van Ness tries to pretend she's okay. Sienna walks up and tries to comfort her. Sienna suggests Laurel takes a shower.
2) Mahabali Shera, Laredo Kid & Garza Jr. def. Idris Abraham, Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara via Sky High in 5:23. Introducing three new faces in this "international tag team match" was a wise booking decision. The babyfaces go over in an entertaining bout.
3) Reno Scum def. Decay via pinfall in just over 6 minutes. As the action breaks down, Rosemary accidentally sprays Steve with the mist. Reno Scum picks up the win with a double team maneuver.
Eli Drake vs. Moose for the Impact Grand Championship doesn't happen as Cody attacks Moose with a chair before Moose enters. Cody hits Cross Rhodes on the ramp. Brandi comes out to stop him.
Konnan cuts a promo on behalf of LAX before their tag match.
2) Santana & Ortiz (LAX) def. Bram & James Storm (DCC) via pinfall in 7 minutes. A miscommunication involving Kingston led to DCC losing the match. Afterwards, Storm tells at Kingston about this happening twice now. Kingston ends up shoving Storm and then Bram splits them apart.
Bruce Prichard sits down with Lashley to talk about who he is and what he's done in his career.
McKenzie Mitchell announces Cody vs. Moose for the Impact Grand Title next week. She then welcomes Sutter & Allie for a brief promo.
3) ODB def. Rebel via TKO in 4 minutes. Earl Hebner countered a slap from and kissed Rebel before taking a drink of ODB's liquor. ODB then kissed Earl and then finished Rebel with a TKO.
4) Lashley squashed Jake Holmes via a Spear in 2 minutes.
Jeremy Borash welcomes Karen Jarrett to the ring. She seems emotional in talking about the difficult times and how we are moving on. EC3 soon interrupts. He brings up "making Impact great" and he feels he already did that. EC3 establishes that he's not reporting for duty for Jarrett's name, he's doing it for himself. Josh Mathews decides to interrupt and question Karen about the changes that have occurred.
Josh mentions wanting to see the Jarrett family gone forever, which prompts her to slap Josh across the face to end the show.
