- Josh Alexander is then interviewed by Gia Miller and says he has a tough road ahead of him as he must defend his IMPACT World Title against #1 Contender Steve Maclin at Rebellion that is, if he can get by KUSHIDA in another World Title defense at Multiverse United: Only the STRONG Survive.

Mickie James then reminds Shaw that she already defeated her during her last rodeo. Shaw then says that James hasn’t faced this version of “The Quintessential Diva”, who now stands alongside Jai Vidal and Savannah Evans.
