The show opens with a recap of last week’s Great American Bash.

Grimes learned a lesson about doing everything right and still coming up short, but that’s life. Maybe Cameron Grimes is just a loser? He thought he was gonna go to the moon, but he just crashed into the sun.

Referee makes a count...
The match goes to a double countout draw.

The Family win by pinfall from Tony D’Angelo on Malik Blade.
Post-match, Tony demands that Wilde and Del Toro beat Malik down!

Mandy Rose gets on the mic and says it’s been long enough, and Roxanne Perez isn’t woman enough to suck it up and challenge her tonight, what a shocker. But she doesn’t blame her because she couldn’t win tonight anyway, in fact no one can.
Enter Cora Jade.
She tells Mandy to shut the hell up, her night isn’t over yet and the crowd was promised a title match so that’s what they’re gonna get, and if Roxanne can’t go, she’ll step up and fight for the title. Rose says she’s gonna give Roxanne until the count of—
