Kurt Angle enters the IMPACT Zone to begin the show. He declares tonight to be the Championship Showcase. Angle says three championships will be decided and that a 20-Man Over the Top Rope Battle Royal will take place to determine the No. 1 Contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!
Angle requests the presence of the unpredictable Willow. Willow’s cackle echoes throughout the arena as the world around him is painted shades of black and white. Angle says Willow was born from a dark place that required violence. He assures Willow that in the absence of Dixie Carter and MVP, TNA isn’t that dark place anymore. He asks Willow to leave for tonight and for “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy to enter tonight’s Battle Royal!
