Singles Match: Chris Bey (w/ Ace Austin) vs. KUSHIDA (w/ Motor City Machine Guns)
– KUSHIDA won with a “Roll-up”.

Santino Marella meets with Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer. Marella proposes to both of them to do with David LaGreca the first Busted Open Radio live at No Surrender, but Dreamer rejects the offer and tells Ray to each follow his own path. Bully Ray asks him to leave IMPACT if he is going to do that, but Dreamer refuses and eventually grows tired of him.

Marella reassures them and proposes that they talk about it in an edition of Busted Open Radio. The two ask to speak first on this program and Santino finally decides that next week they will each have a one-on-one fight and whoever wins in the shortest time will have the opportunity to speak first.

No Surrender Qualifying Match: Rhino vs. Steve Maclin
– Maclin won with a “DDT”.

Gia Miller interviews Masha Slamovich and asks if she thinks Mickie James doesn’t see her as a real threat. Masha thinks so, and that Mickie has misunderstood the message she wants to convey, so she asks her to sit in the front row tonight to see what she’s going to do with Alisha.

Singles Match: Barry Horowitz vs. Johnny Swinger (w/ Zicky Dice)
– After a distraction from The KISS Demon, Horowitz won with a “Roll-up”.

Moose does an interview with Gia Miller and criticizes Joe Hendry for putting people down. Moose asks Gia who he is. Miller responds that he is ‘The God of Wrestling’ and he responds that he tries. The segment ends with Moose pulling out a baseball bat and heading to the parking lot to vandalize Joe Hendry’s car, but it turns out it wasn’t his, but Santino Marella’s.

No Surrender Qualifying Match: Eddie Edwards vs. Heath
– After a distraction from PCO’s music, Heath won with a “Wake Up Call”.

After the match, PCO arrives and attacks Eddie Edwards.

Deaner talks to Callihan backstage and reminds her that Frankie Kazarian questioned her desire to join The Design. Next week, Deaner and Callihan will face off against Yuya Uemura and Kazarian, prompting the next step for Callihan within the faction. Callihan asks what it is and Angels tells him to come over next week to find out.

James Mitchell, Allysin Kay and Marti Belle cut a promo backstage. Mitchell claims that Rosemary’s father, who is her boss, sent Hex away due to lack of loyalty to her. Allysin Kay says that they arrived to “hexterminate” all their rivals and Belle says that they will end the Death Dollz to win the World Knockouts Tag Team Championship.

Singles Match: Alisha vs. Masha Slamovich
– Slamovich won with a “Snow Plow”.

After the match, Masha continues to attack Alisha, but Mickie James stops her. However, Slamovich recovers and lands a submission on Mickie until it is stopped by the referees.

Crazzy Steve and Black Taurus cut a promo backstage. Steve says he’ll leave Trey Miguel alone if he can defend the X-Division Title against him in a Monster’s Ball Match.

Backstage, Santino Marella meets Motor City Machine Guns, Jonathan Gresham and Mike Bailey. After a short conversation, a fight between the two teams is set for next week.
