Welcome to this week’s edition of TNA Impact, we are shown a recap video of how Gunner won the world title briefcase and how Magnus won the world title. The two meet tonight in the main event.
We see Dixie Carter freaking out in the back as Magnus calms her down. She tells him to go out and break the news. Magnus says if she goes down, he will not go down with her. Magnus tells EC3 that they need to talk or the whole thing is over before it begins. He gives Rockstar Spud to keep point and look out for MVP. Magnus with Dixie Carter comes down to the ring, Magnus calls out MVP and has an announcement to make. MVP comes to the ring, Magnus wants to explain something to him and that is this. He introduces himself to MVP and says that he is not impressed with MVP because he handles things like a criminal. He brings up his 9 year stint in prison and he says if he gets in the ring with the world champ then that is nothing like facing a beat down from him. Magnus says if he steps out of line with him then he will make an example out of him. MVP makes fun of him and then says that a real champion does not have to point out that he is champion. He demands an answer from Carter and Magnus about the match at Lockdown on who takes control of TNA. Magnus answers him with a yes for the challenge. The match is set, but Magnus says that he will not be in the match as team champion. Because he will be fighting Samoa Joe at Lockdown. MVP says that he should not think that he can walk through Gunner tonight. Magnus says he does not care who or what Gunner has done. Make no mistake about it, he will make him his… then he says that he will make him his BIOTCH. A brawl breaks out between MVP and Magnus. EC3 runs down and attacks MVP from behind. Spud has security stop the Wolves, but they break through security and make their way down to the ring. Gunner is there first and clears house.
