We open the show with Bully Ray and Tito Ortiz walking into the building. Bully is on his cell phone and says: "everything is perfect, he's standing with me right now, and he's jacked. Listen I told you, last week was about me, and this week is about us, are you sure you're ready? cause the world is going to be shocked when we tell them the truth, alright baby, I love you too Brookie" Mr. Anderson walks into the picture and Bully Ray introduces Tito and Anderson. Anderson is upset that he didn't know anything about Tito joining Aces and Eights. Bully Ray gets upset and insists, since Tito is with him, he's with the club, and maybe Anderson should be considered with earning his stripes and taking care of business!

Daniels is now on the mic and cuts a solid promo before handing the mic back to Bobby Roode. Roode says "We are 25% of the BFG series, but why would you want to just be 25% when you can be a third." Roode says we need to add 1 more member to this extraordinary group, and that member, that guy is Austin Aries! Roode talks into the camera and tells Aries he can trust him and if he wants a shot to be the World Heavyweight Champion, join us. "Sorry about your damn luck!" James Storm's music hits and out comes Storm and Gunner.
Storm on the mic, Storm talks about trust and he trusted Roode once but "its not a matter of if he turns on ya, its a matter of when." Roode tells Storm he's jealous of him and always has been. Storm back on the mic says "Jealous? The only thing I'm jealous of is a guy that gots a six pack and only got two left!" Storm continues on with Roode and then says he's going to go to the corner, take a drink of cold beer, and then walk back over and punch Roode in his mouth!
