In-Ring: Honor No More, Josh Alexander, Rich Swann, Heath, Motor City Machine Guns
Eddie Edwards, IMPACT World Tag Team Champions Matt Taven and Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis, Kenny King, PCO and Vincent are in the ring to celebrate their success at Victory Road. Edwards gets on the mic and says that not only did Honor No More prove what they are capable of, but he proved that he could beat IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander when he pinned him in their six-man tag team match. However, Edwards admits that the group still suffered a setback and places blame on PCO for failing to soften up the Motor City Machine Guns ahead of their IMPACT World Tag Team Title shot at Bound For Glory. Edwards accuses PCO of stepping up when he’s not supposed to and demands that he obeys his orders. Vincent places a bag over the head of PCO in an attempt to calm him down. The celebration continues as Maria Kanellis repeatedly shows the clip of Edwards pinning Alexander, something that nobody has been able to do since Moose defeated him for the IMPACT World Title last year at Bound For Glory. Kanellis says that Edwards’ victory is even more impressive because he was able to do it clean, unlike Moose who “called his shot” after Alexander already competed in a match.
Speaking of the champ, Alexander interrupts and says that each member of Honor No More is afraid of being overlooked and insignificant again. Alexander calls his match with Edwards just another fight and the only difference is how they view the prize, the IMPACT World Title. Edwards views it as job security and Alexander views it as a symbol of the best wrestler on earth. Edwards claims that in eight days, Alexander will regret his decision to not join Honor No More in their war against IMPACT Wrestling. Edwards says that not only does he have momentum heading into Bound For Glory, but he will enter the biggest event of the year with his Honor No More family by his side. Alexander fires back, stating that while it may look like he’s at a numbers disadvantage, he fights with the IMPACT fans by his side and that makes Edwards the only one that’s outnumbered. Alexander hits the ring and a brawl breaks out. Alexander quickly falls victim to the numbers game when Rich Swann and Heath attempt to make the save. The tide once again shifts in Honor No More’s favor as the Motor City Machine Guns even the odds. Alexander and Edwards go face to face but Edwards retreats to the outside.
PCO & Vincent vs. Rich Swann & Heath
The fight continues as PCO and Vincent battle Rich Swann and Heath in their scheduled tag team matchup! PCO hits a Codebreaker out of the corner, followed by a draping DDT to Swann. PCO soars with a leg drop off the second rope. Swann uses his quickness to create separation with an Enzuigiri to Vincent. Swann makes the tag to Heath as he goes on the attack. Heath hits Vincent with a powerslam for two. Heath attempts the Wake Up Call but PCO protects his partner from the apron. PCO is sent over the top as his hand gets caught in the ropes. Swann hits the Phoenix Splash on Vincent to score the victory.
Winner: Rich Swann & PCO via Pinfall.
Backstage: Moose, Steve Maclin, Scott D’Amore
Days removed from the brutal Barbed Wire Massacre match between Moose, Steve Maclin and Sami Callihan, Moose finally admits to Gia Miller that he and Maclin made a deal. Moose agreed to help Maclin in the Call Your Shot gauntlet for every time Maclin helped him with Sami Callihan. Moose says that the deal is out the window following Maclin’s win at Victory Road and that it’s going to be every man for himself at Bound For Glory. Maclin attacks Moose and the fight is on once again!

Slamovich fights back with a suplex on the exposed ramp. Back in the ring, Slamovich hits a snap suplex onto a chair.

Katch kicks out and sends Slamovich through a door with her own Death Valley Driver. Both Knockouts are sent flying off the apron, through a table on the floor. Slamovich empties a back of thumbtacks on the mat. Katch piledrives her into the tacks but somehow, someway, Slamovich kicks out at two.
