The Good Brothers, Chris Sabin, James Storm, Matt Hardy, and Private Party Segment
Doc Gallows: We’re gonna keep these IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Championships for as long as well damn well please, because it’s that same old recipe, it’s a Magic Killer, a 1-2-3, and a just too sweet.
Chris Sabin: See, those belong to The Motor City Machine Guns. When we lost those belts, I wasn’t pinned, Alex Shelley wasn’t pinned, so in my mind, we are the rightful number one contenders and we want our rematch. We want our rematch.
Doc Gallows: Well, that makes a lot of sense. It makes a lot of sense that you want to do a little business with The Good Brothers, but the problem is, Chris Sabin, you ain’t got no business twizzeeb cause you ain’t got no partner, so take your ass to the back and quit raining on our party, all right.
Chris Sabin: You’re right. You guys are right, Alex Shelley isn’t here, you know that. But the thing is, I actually do have a tag team partner and he just happens to know a lot about tag team wrestling.
James Storm: You see, guys, it is time for you to put up or shut up, because I am the man that talks the poop on the mic. If you don’t like it, you could take a hike. Wait, no, that’s not it. Hold on, let me do that again. Oh, yeah, what I mean to say is, sorry about your damn luck.
Matt Hardy: Boys and girls, your eyes do not deceive you, The Iconic Big Money Matt Hardy, The King Maker has returned to the IMPACT Zone.
James Storm: Because I think you forgot exactly who you’re talking to, because this, right here, no disrespect guys, this is a private conversation, not a private party.
Matt Hardy: No, no, no, you don’t speak to them. They’re not experienced enough to speak for themselves. You speak to me. I’m the spokesman. As a matter of fact, all four of you should be down on your hands and knees, thanking me, you should be praising me, because in 2016, I put IMPACT Wrestling single handedly on my back and I saved it from going bankrupt. Before you have a spot, you have a job because of me. As a matter of fact, I’m so fired up right now, I think their warm up match needs to be against the two of you, The Good Brothers for the IMPACT World Tag Team Titles. As a matter of fact, those world tag team titles are the same ones that my brother and I, Jeff Hardy, never ever lost. IMPACT Wrestling stripped them away from us in some stupid teleportation angle, it was absurd.
Karl Anderson: Hey, Matt, that has nothing to do with us.
Doc Gallows: Big Money Matt, I like your style, I like your moves, but from where we’re standing, there are two teams in the ring and neither one of them are wearing these IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Titles. So, it seems like maybe you all should fight it out and we should go in the back and finish off that hoot blood.
Matt Hardy: Let me understand this right, so what you’re saying is, if my team beats this team, then they get a shot for the World Tag Team Titles?
Doc Gallows: Yep.
Matt Hardy: All right, well, then, I’m going to have my team, my fleet of lawyers contact IMPACT Wrestling’s lawyers and I’m going to make this official. And tonight, I need the two of you to be vicious, mean, and cruel. And I need you to do whatever it takes to win, by any means necessary. Do you understand? Tonight, after they beat you (Sabin & Storm), they’re coming for your titles. The truth is the truth.

Rich Swann & Moose Segment
Rich Swann: Cut that down for me. IMPACT, Saturday at Hard To Kill, I felt the pressure, I felt the pressure of being IMPACT World Champion. And not only did I feel the pressure of being World Champion, I felt the pressure of this leading this entire company of IMPACT Wrestling into war with The Good Brothers and AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega. I live for that pressure. I thrive off that pressure. That’s why I do this. I know Chris Sabin, he came out here and he left his heart out here in the middle of this ring. I came out there, I left my heart out here in the middle of this ring. And Moose, he definitely came out here and he showed out for IMPACT Wrestling. But I would be lying if I said that during that whole entire match, I didn’t have in the back of mind, them trust issues.
And who could blame me? After everything that Moose has done the past eight months, walking around here claiming he’s the real world champion, targeting me, mind games, targeting my friends. Hell, even to go as far as to put one of my best friends Willie Mack on the shelf. Now, I know my full attention has been on The Good Brothers and Kenny Omega, and I don’t even know if everything between Kenny and I is over. But what I do know is, Kenny ain’t in this building tonight. And so for the first time, in a long time, Rich Swann’s schedule is wide open. Moose, you wanted my attention, you got my attention. So what I want you to do is, bring that big gallon head out here so we can settle this, once and for all.
Moose: Rich, I know you’re angry, but let me remind you, people tend to make bad decisions when they are angry. And those decisions tend to make me angry. And you know what I’m capable of when I get angry, just ask your friend, Willie Mack. Now, one thing I heard you say is, you want to settle things. But the fact is, nothing between us is going to be settled until I get my IMPACT World Title Shot.
Rich Swann: Well, why the hell do you think I called you out here, you idiot. I want to give you your world title match, right here, right now. Let’s go.
Moose: Rich, that’s not how this situation works. You don’t say when, I say when, because you’re on my time.
Rich Swann: You’re time? Fair enough, you’re on your time. But my only question is, what do we do now? Because I sure as hell ain’t come here to talk.
Swann starts brawling with Moose to close the segment.
