The NEW Impact World Champion Alex Shelly and NEW Impact X-Division Champion Chris Sabin promo:
Sabin says it felt like he dreamt waking up after AAO and they both had gold, but not just tag gold. Sabin became a nine-time X-Division Champ, and Shelley won his first world title. Shelley says he ugly cried because winning the title finally made him feel like he was good enough. Shelley names Okada, Jay White, Young Bucks, Trey Miguel, Kushida, and Seth Rollins as people who had their turn. Sabin declares this is the Machine Gun era of Impact.
Out comes Nick Aldis smiling. He apologizes for interrupting, but he has something he wants to get off his chest. Aldis called his shot, Shelley called his, and everyone was there to congratulate him, including Aldis. He credits Shelley for pulling him up back in the day, which launched him into his own world title reign. Now Aldis plans on winning the title at Slammiversary. Trey Miguel comes out and says he’s gassy from all the smoke they keep blowing up each other. Miguel says they forgot about him when talking about the Impact Mount Rushmore. Sabin tells him to shut up and says he has to earn respect.
Kenny King, flanked by Sheldon Jean, Kenny calls Sabin a jerk for discrediting Trey. Sabin challenges them to 3-on-3. Gisele Shaw’s music hits next as Shaw, Evans, and Vidal come down. Shaw says what Kenny said is true — the spotlight should be hers, but instead it’s Trinity’s… just like what happened with Aldis and the Guns. Shaw asks Shelley if he deserves all of this. Alex says “yup.” He says there was no carpet for them and have been here for decades. Shelly says it sounds like her problem is with Trinity.
Trinity comes out next. She says she’s here for Shelley’s class and wants to see Shaw get schooled. Vidal gets in her face and Trinity threatens to punch him in the face again. Out comes Deonna Purrazzo! She announces she has surpassed 500 days as cumulative champion. Purrazzo wants to be involved if people are talking about getting knocked out.

In-ring promo from Bully Ray:
He starts by calling himself a victim of Scott D’Amore and poor management. Bully says he wanted to be the people’s next world champion, but Scott took that away from everyone. He has a copy of the letter that he sent to Anthem higher ups demanding justice. Bully demands answers.
Scott D’Amore comes down and calls him a lying, stooging b****. Bully repeats what is in the letter. D’Amore says he went before the Anthem board and heard his ridiculous complaint that he crossed the line at AAO. Scott reveals he was informed that he should take a leave of absence following his actions. Bully says that’s music to his ears because his bosses screwed him. Ray tells Scott to leave. Scott says he agrees with the board’s decision and proceeds to beat up Bully.
Steve Maclin runs in, and beats D’Amore down Bully joins him. Maclin grabs chairs from the outside. Bully chokes Scott and Maclin raises his chair as the lights go out. PCO appears in the ring but Maclin goes right after him with chair shots. PCO levels Bully and Maclin before Scott dropkicks Maclin out of the ring. Scott announces he made one more match official!
