Rich Swann, Moose, Scott D’Amore and Don Callis Segment 

Moose: So I’m hearing that Scott D’Amore has an announcement to make, that will have huge ramifications on my IMPACT World Title Match, this Saturday at Sacrifice. So, since I’m the real world champion in this scenario, I think I deserve to hear this news, first. So, Scott D’Amore, please get your ass in this ring and share the news.

Scott D’Amore: You know, Moose, for almost a year now, you’ve been walking around claiming to be a world champion, to be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. That title has a long lineage and it has great history, and you picking it up in a prop locker, I don’t know, but I don’t think that makes you a world champion. But, as I said a couple of weeks ago, fine, because now this Saturday, we’re gonna settle this, once and for all. Two World Champions is one too many. And Moose, I’m sick and tired of you walking around, claiming something you haven’t earned. So this Saturday at Sacrifice, the IMPACT World’s Championship won’t be the only one on the line, because the TNA World’s Heavyweight Championship will be on the line in a world title unification match, winner-take-all.

Hey, guys, Rich, nobody loves a little posturing more than me, but there’s a little something that I almost forgot. And that’s whichever one of you gentlemen walks out this Saturday as the Unified Worlds Champion, your work is not done. You both know, a champion can never stop, can never give up. And the winner of Saturday’s match at Sacrifice, the Unified IMPACT World’s Champion will be in the main event of Rebellion, LIVE on PPV, April 24th. And that night is not just any PPV, that night is not just any main event, but that night, one of you two men is going to be a part of history because that night, whichever one of you walks out of Sacrifice, is going to be in another match, title versus title, versus AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega. Yeah, I know you didn’t like what he did to you, I know you want a shot, Rich. And Moose, you want to prove you’re the best. So gentlemen, one of you is gonna get that shot, let’s decide that this Saturday at Sacrifice.

Don Callis: Hey, Kenny. I just saw it. Now, it’s done, just like we planned.
