As the second begins, Rex attacks and tells Jesse he won’t be winning. Rex then hits a suplex. Jesse tries to go for a few pins, but the match goes on. Jesse’s back is attacked, but with 30 seconds left in the second, he uses power and locks back the Adonis lock before the round ends and is awarded to him. We’re selling stuff. As the third starts, Rex rakes out of the chinlock. With his vision affected, he’s hit with Rex’s ring hand to end the match. After his win, the berating by Rex begins.
We still have the X-Division. We even have Team X Gold. Not sure if there will be a belt.
Trevor Lee, Andrew Everett, and Marshe Rockett. Vs. Rockstar Spud and The Decay vs. Go For Broke. Instead of a belt, there are flags. Lee and Crazzy Steve are outsmarted by TNA X-Division Champion DJZ, who then flies around, and tags in Mandrews, who gets assaulted by Lee and Everett. Because Rockett tags in, Abyss tags in, and both men brawl before the double kick by Mandrews. This leads to everyone hitting their finishing move. After The Decay are inexplicably ejected, Spud is attacked, and pinned by Braxton Sutter.

Matt gets one of them down. Jeff hit a twist of fate before the third DCC member entering causing a DQ. After this, one of the guys that somehow got a match attacks and stomps referee Earl Hebner. The two groups are brawling near a guy that looks like Paul Ellering. We hear music as weapons are used, then they interrupt a Grado promo. Matt uses a bucket of the lake to make Jeff his 2010 self. Matt smashes one of them into pallets while yelling “Delete”, as the other throws Jeff and the bucket in a box, revealing present Jeff. Matt is sent off a forklift, and now doesn’t have an idea who Jeff is.
