Nic Nemeth comes out to the ring for a promo. He said he’s going face to face with Moose at Rebellion. He says there is something special about Las Vegas because that is where he made his debut. The System’s music plays and Moose comes out. Moose says he’s sure he had a story to tell the idiots and they were going to believe it. He says the one thing he’s never been able to beat is The System. Nemeth says Moose is not going to get in his head. Nemeth asks if Moose thinks the boys in the back and the fans wouldn’t get behind him as the champion. He says when he ripped up his Motley Crue T-shirt was a TNA T-shirt and that’s where his heart lies. Moose says he’s sure management would love for him to be champion, but the problem is what after, because his whole career he has shown that when he is given the ball, he fumbles. He says Nemeth is a choke artist. Nemeth says he’s heard it his entire life and he even began to doubt himself. He says he’s in the best shape of his life mentally and physically. He says he says it in Moose’s eyes that he thinks he’s going to face the old Dolph Ziggler, but he’s going to face the “Wanted Man” Nic Nemeth.

A video package with promos for all the matches at Rebellion airs to close the show.
