Eddie is walking through town with Kenny the Kendo Stick. He finds Moose who has Alisha. Eddie and Moose argue weather or not Aries and Kross are really friends to Moose. Eddie admits he was a bad friend, hopes they can be friends after Moose kicks his ass at BFG. Alisha then throws water on Moose’s face and Eddie and Moose brawl.

Impact then comes to the ring. He calls out Aries to have a conversation about their match. Austin’s music hits, and he eventually comes out with his arm in a sling. Aries limps to the ring, slowly.
Aries joins Impact in the ring, saying he’s here and alone, and he’s suffered some injuries from Impact hitting him with the title belt last week. Impact says he doesn’t want to whoop his ass tonight, but at Bound For Glory so he can be the champion.
He then says the title should be Aries vs Impact, and asks if Aries can face him alone at Bound For Glory as well. Aries reminds Impact that he’s all ready beat Impact, so if he wants it to be one-on-one, he guarantees Moose and Kross won’t interfere because he doesn’t need them to beat Impact, and does Impact even know who he really is?
Aries says Impact looks like he should be champion, and he’s a really good fake pro wrestler. Aries continues saying he doesn’t look like the part, but he’s that good and he IS a champion.
Aries then offers Impact a chance to be a part of a winning team. Says he can cancel his shot, join his group and unlock his potential before he has to change his name to Johnny 205!
Johnny says he’d rather be wheeled out on a stretcher on his own before he follows Aries. Aries hits Impact with a cheap shot and reveals he’s not injured. Impact then hits a huge clothesline and Starship Pain on the champion, hold the belt high as his music plays.
