Hulk Hogan starts the show by saying how great it is to be home, then he plugs his Hogan's Beach restaurant and says they make him feel like family. He says this is his home, but they also have a TNA family, and AJ Styles looks like he is crossing to the dark side. Hulk says AJ is defecting to the Aces and Eights, but he wants some positive vibes and he wants to bring out someone on his side. Sting makes his way to the ring and Hulk says he's in charge, and he doesn't have to be banned from title shots if he doesn't want to. Sting says Hulk should keep things the same, and he wants it this way because he told Hulk to trust Bully Ray.

Sting says he is going to take the power and the title from Bully, and he only needs one shot to get things done at Slammiversary. Hulk tells him again that he could get rid of the stipulation, then Brooke Hogan comes out and says neither one of them should take the blame. She says she fell for Bully and she drove a wedge between them, and she also strained her relationship with her dad too. Hulk tells her it's not necessary but Brooke says it's her fault, and as much as she loves the Knockouts and her job, she needs to resign. Hulk says she doesn't have to do that, then the Aces and Eights theme cues up and Bully Ray makes his way through the crowd.

Bully tells them to shut up, and he asks why they are taking the blame for everything because it's his fault that he stabbed them in the back. He says he runs the show, not Hulk, but he does have to blame one person, and that's Brooke because he still thinks of her and the connection they have. Bully says he still loves her and always will, and he will never take his wedding ring off, then he holds up his hand and leaves through the crowd.
