Sami Callihan asks Ken Shamrock is ready for tonight to face Rich Swann. Tonight he becomes IMPACT World Champion. IN comes Moose. He says too bad Ken’s match is for the second most important title in IMPACT as he lifts up the TNA belt. He has a lot of respect for Shamrock, and if he’s successful in beating Swann, remember who beat him earlier. Ken wants to fight Moose now, but Sami settles him down.
Kaleb with a K is with Tenille Dashwood as Alisha Edwards enters. She wants to tag with Tenille again. Tenille isn’t quite game, but Alisha wants to keep at it. They mull it over.

Post-match, Deonna and Lee embrace before the lights flicker and there are signs of Su Yung as the two become flustered. It’s actually Suzie. She’s back to her friendly, yet sad self. They hurt her friends and now she’s said. Now her friend’s her and now it’s going to get bad. She apologizes. Out comes Su Yung. She attacks both Purrazzo and Kimber Lee. Yung hammers away at Deonna and has the bloody glove on as Deonna tries to beg her off. Kimber Lee saves her. Suzie stands at the entryway with her back turned (because they’re the same person).

Gia is backstage with The Motor City Machine Guns. Alex Shelley is back and healthy. Step one is that they have their sights on XXXL and step two is The North. Step three is The Good Brothers and the IMPACT Tag Titles.
Swann and Willie Mack meet up backstage. Swann asks Mack how he’s feeling. Mack has been fighting his whole damn life and the ref had no reason to call the fight last week. Enter Chris Bey.

Bey says if Swann survives Shamrock, give him a ring.
Ethan Page walks out for his match, but out comes Karl Anderson. He notes the resume that Anderson and he have cultivated throughout their career but The Big LG is not here. Page assaulted him, and he’s at home. If Page agreed to beat an opponent of Karl’s choosing, The North would get a shot at the titles. AJ Styles’ music hits, but out comes Swoggle dressed as Styles “The Wee-nomenal One” AJ Swoggle.
Ethan Page (with Josh Alexander) vs. Swoggle

Page is so embarrassed and frustrated as Alexander tries to talk him down post-match.
Back to Wrestlers’ Court. Madison Rayne finishes her cross examination with Swinger as Dreamer steps up to prosecute. Did he really think Swinger would get away with this? Why would he screw up his marketing opportunities? He’s the OJ Simpson of pro wrestling. He and Dreamer go back a long time. Does he really think Swinger would shoot someone? It gives Dreamer pause. Madison doesn’t want to have any further questions. Dreamer calls up his next witness: James Mitchell.
Mitchell admits he’s a whore mongerer and has two Ph.D.’s in the sciences of parapsychology and demonology. Dreamer asks him about virgin blood. He says some of virgin blood is cherished by some people. That brings Rosemary to the stand for Dreamer to begin his examination.
Did she ever love John E. Bravo? No! Of course “we” didn’t love him. Do you really think he was worthy of “us?” She basically wanted his virgin blood. Enters John E. Bravo in his hospital whites. D-Lo asks for order and says it’s clear who shot Bravo. Bravo says it wasn’t Rosemary. Dreamer asks him how does he know who shot him if the lights were out. “He didn’t see him, but he could smell him.” We go to break.
Larry D is at the stand and Dreamer has him hooked up to the lie detector test again. He asks Larry if he shot John E. Bravo. “No.” Tommy asks him again, but sprays some cologne. and appears Lawrence D. He admits to shooting Bravo because he stole the woman he loves. D-Lo finds Swinger not guilty.
Fallah Bahh vs. Shawn Daivari
Daivari comes in hot, but Bahh battles back and hits a massive cross body. In comes Joe Doering and Eric Young. Doering slams Bahh down hard and the bell rings. Piledriver to Daivari by EY. He grabs the mic. “My purpose is clear. My vision is clear and I will be opening eyes to the truth.” He says this world is sick and you’re looking at the cure. In comes Rhino and he decks EY and begins battling Doering. EY gangs up on him and the two level him down with a clothesline. EY gets back on the mic and screams at Rhino the world belongs to him.
yers. Myers says this isn’t the IMPACT he’s signed up for. He runs down all three of them. He calls Crazzy Steve a clown and says TJP is the same, he’s just not wearing make-up.
Deonna and Kimber Lee approach James Mitchell and they’re hoping that he can turn their “Su Yung problem” into a “Suzie problem.” Mitchell is willing to do so…for a price. He doesn’t disclose, but says if they want his services, they got it.

Shamrock goes to strike Swann but he avoids. Sami quickly grabs the leg of Swann and Shamrock takes advantage with some shots. Callihan gets ejected.
