Video package of oVe and the Lucha Brothers/Brian Cage story. Part way through, it cuts to the Karate Kid, back to the package, then back to the Karate Kid commercial… odd
We see King now, who knocks on a door, enters to see Konnan sitting in front of a table with three men sitting behind it. The men refuse to shake King’s hand and tell him to sit down. The Commission has called them together because the violence has gone too far. Konnan accuses King of not adhering to the code. King says they’re stabbing him in the back, and he makes the most money for them. He did what had to be done and this is Konnan’s fault for having the kid around. The Commission calls for a cease fire between the two groups until October 14 in New York City. A six-man Tag Team Match at Bound For Glory will finish the war once and for all!!!

More O V E SUCKS call and response. Says feud with Pentagon and Fenix will never end. Wants to make it interesting, and if Cage wants to stick his nose in their business they will never, ever forget.
Austin Aries’ music hits and out he comes with Killer Kross and Moose. Time for an explination. Fans are chainting “douche” in the old Moose chant fashion.
Aries says people want to know why, hands the mic to Moose. “You sold out” chant. Moose starts by saying Eddie has everyone fooled and he’s a fraud and selfish and Moose will expose him. Says he was there for Eddie every time, but where was Eddie when Moose was out with his concussion? Added only Kross and Aries checked on him, saying he can only be the best if he stops catering to all the idiots. He then thanks Aries for being the greatest man who ever lived. Aries then thanks Moose for listening to reason, and says Eddie failed because he was selfish. Aries says everything has changed and no one is taking the title from around his waste.
Johnny Impact comes out and says he can’t say that and expect no one to come out. Aries then states, “and here you are… nobody!” Aries says he looks the part, but Aries IS the part. Impact then announces at Bound For Glory, it will be Aries vs Impact for the IMPACT World Title. Aries then sends everyone away and says let’s go now. Impact won’t fall for it, then plugs his movie. Aries restates the challenge for tonight, Impact then challenges Aries onto the ramp, or he can stay in the ring and prove he’s not a man.
Aries charges and they fight on the ramp. Johnny holds his own until the numbers advantage becomes too much. Kross and Aries lock in their double submission while Moose fends off security. Aries gets two chairs, gives one to Moose, who places his on Johnny’s head. Aries then she’s his chair into that one to take out Impact and the heels stand tall in the ring again as we close the show!
Thats all for IMPACT! Wrestling this week, GOOD NIGHT FOLKS!!!
