Callis praises Moose for being an incredible physical specimen but says that he will come up short at Against All Odds, just like he always has in his Pro Wrestling and NFL careers. Moose threatens both Callis and Omega when The Good Brothers hit the ring. It looks as though Moose is going to fall victim to the numbers game when Sami Callihan appears! Omega, Callis and The Good Brothers retreat up the ramp as Moose and Callihan hold the ring.

Backstage: Moose, Sami Callihan

Moose stops Sami Callihan in the back and tells him that he didn’t need his help earlier. Callihan says he didn’t come out there to help Moose – he came out there because he’s sick of Kenny Omega running roughshod over IMPACT Wrestling. Callihan says that no matter who walks out of Against All Odds with the IMPACT World Title, he’s coming to reclaim what’s rightfully his.

Rachael Ellering vs. Jordynne Grace
