-Matt Morgan rushes the ring and nails the carbon footprint on RVD. Joey Ryan is there and poses with the X-Division Title. Morgan says Hogan should be careful what he wishes for, because he is now getting a new side of Matt Morgan.
-Austin Aries is outside Hogan’s office, mocking the guys who are begging for the title shot. Aries makes Thunder in Paradise jokes, and then says he will get their reactions once they get kicked out.
-Daniels and Kaz make their way to the ring. Kaz has the mic and says that it is fitting that Halloween is coming, because the real tag team champions of the world have been tricked, but have received no treats. It’s a conspiracy. Last week Mr. Nanny Hulk Hogan changed his travel to leave Daniels to a severe disadvantage. And at Bound for Glory their tag titles were taken from them illegally, by two men that are likely in the country illegally. Daniels stops Kaz, and says the people are slow. It’s not really championship Thursday since they are not getting their rematch while everyone else like Ion and Tessmacher are getting rematches. They are the best, they tell the truth, and are not manipulators like Chavo and Hernandez. Daniels then says Chavo has to mention every member of his family to get a reaction, and that Dixie Carter is so desperate for the Hispanic demographic, they may as well be called “Dos Sterotypicos”. They have a petition that they will have the fans sign, to prove to Hogan that they deserve a tag title shot.
Chavo and Hernandez make their way to the ring. Chavo asks if he heard them correctly about wanting their rematch. Chavo says nothing would make them happier than to help them get a rematch, so they can shove the belts down their throats. They clear the ring of the former champions. Chavo and Hernandez sign the petition and say they will face them anywhere, anytime.
-Hogan is with Bully, Anderson, Angle and Storm. Hogan wants to know why they deserve title shots. They make their case and argue, ad Anderson is eliminated. Anderson leaves and Aries mocks him, and says he is better than Anderson in ever way. They brawl in the hallway, with Anderson getting the better of Aries. Anderson agrees to a match later tonight.
-Devon meets with the rest of Aces and Eights. He says the boss says not to lose their masks; they must hide their identities. Devon then says he has some ladies for them. But they have to take someone out tonight. They throw a dart at a board of images, and then laugh. They have chosen their victim.
Lock up, chops by Joe but Robbie T no sells. Shoulder block by Joe, tries another and eats a clothesline. To the corner, rights by Robbie T. Jabs in return from Joe, slaps, off the ropes but a jumping spin kick by Robbie T. Robbie T with clubbing shots to the back, off the ropes and Joe with rights. Robbie T grabs him by the throat, counter, and the choke by Joe. Robbie E distracts the ref, Joe back to the choke, distraction again, Robbie T escapes but Joe jumps on his back and locks in the choke. Robbie T drops back to break, but Joe locks it back again and Robbie T taps.

-Tara and Jesse make out. Brooke Hogan is now out, and says that she sees how things are. Next week is open fight night, and that means Tara could get called out. ODB just called Brooke, and she wants to challenge Jesse to a match next week.
-Joseph Park meets with Hulk Hogan. Park says he wants an answer about the Aces and eights situation. Hulk says they are gangsters, but Park says he wants his revenge. Park has a hold harmless contract signed, so that he can get his revenge, and so TNA will not be held responsible for what happens. Park says he was there for Hogan, and now he needs Hogan’s support. Hogan will think about it.
-Bully Ray makes his way out to the ring. Ray thanks Sting for allowing him to be his partner at BFG. He has been doing this a long time, in the business for 20-years and not many things shock him. But when Devon was unmasked at BFG, he was totally shocked. Last week Devon came out here and gave an excuse to why he did what he did, but now, he wants Devon to come out and face him man to man, and he wants to know why he did what he did.
The music hits and here comes Devon, flanked by some of the Aces and Eights. They hit the ring, there are five members along with Devon. They form a wall between them, and Devon says that he doesn’t owe Ray anything. They are not a team, they are not family, they are nothing. Ray did what he did two years ago, and Devon did what he had to do, and it has nothing to do with Ray. Devon says this whole thing has to do with Hogan. Hogan came out and said he wanted Devon back, but Hogan never called him or texted him. Hogan, Dixie and TNA sat behind their desks and did nothing. But the brotherhood had his back. TNA and Hogan did nothing, and this doesn’t end here. When it is all said and done, they will take out all of the people that did them wrong. SO go home and leave it be, it is over and done. Devon says ray isn’t a threat anymore. Ray says it is over when he says it is over. As far as 2 years ago goes, Devon knows why he did it, that was between them. Ray calls Devon a lying sack of crap. They were supposed to retire as tag team champions, they hit 3D, Devon made the cover, and Sabin kicked out. No one had ever kicked out of that move in 15 years, but they kicked out on Devon. Ray then says when they sat backstage, Ray said he felt like they let everyone down, and Devon said what is the big deal? Why are you so worried, we’re rich, screw the fans. That is why Ray did what he did. Devon says screw the fans, and Ray says they are doing too much talking. So get rid of the guys he is hiding behind and they can fight right now. Devon says no, because it will be on his time. Devon says he will let Ray know when it is time. Devon and the crew bail, and Ray says Devon has been a coward his whole career. Ray says Devon has never had a set of balls, and then says next week is open fight night, and he calls him out right now. Grow a set of balls, because he will beat his ass and someone is going through a table.
-Joey Ryan and Matt Morgan walk backstage. When asked about attacking RVD, Ryan says the rules do not apply to them. Ryan isn’t afraid of RVD, and it may be time to put some gold around his waist. Morgan says Hogan started this with his excuses to hold him down. From this moment forward he does what he wants, when he wants and where he wants.
-We get a video package on next week’s Gutcheck challenge, which will feature former ECW competitor Christian York.
-Hogan says he has made his choice, tonight, Angle gets the title shot tonight. Hogan says he has something huge to talk to Storm about.

Back into the ring they go, back elbow by Jeff, whisper in the wind connects and Jeff covers for 2. Jeff is up, sets, twist of fate countered and a German connects for Angle.
