Rich Swann interfered, coming to the aid of his friend Mack. Swann then jumped Morrissey during his sit-down interview on IMPACT on AXS TV setting up a match between the two the following week on IMPACT. Morrissey returned the favor, jumping Swann before the match. The two will finally go one on one at Against All Odds.

Tenielle Dashwood invited Rachael Ellering to be a co-host on All About Me. Ellering invited her friend and tag team partner Jordynne Grace onto the show with her. Dashwood was not thrilled that Grace crashed the episode and began to disrespect both Grace and Ellering. This irritated Ellering who attempted to lay out a challenge to Dashwood for Against All Odds. Before she could fully lay out the challenge, Grace interrupted and challenged Dashwood to a match. Both stormed off, with Grace headed to the office of Scott D’amore to make the match official.

They got back into the win column the following week when they retained their titles against Grace and Ellering. They now have their sights set on previous short-term tag partners Kimber Lee and Susan, who will challenge for the titles. Will they retain, or will Kimber Lee and Susan have their first reign with the titles?

VBD vs. Decay

Violent by Design shocked the IMPACT roster when they cashed in their Call Your Shot trophy on former tag champions FinJuice. The team of Rhino and Joe Doering surprised FinJuice after they competed in a grueling match against Ace Austin and Madman Fulton. While fellow VBD member Deaner faced off against Satoshi Kojima on IMPACT on AXS TV, VBD attempted to get involved. They were confronted by Black Taurus and Crazzy Steve of Decay which set up for this title match between the two factions. With Doering taking on Kojima, VBD will utilize the Freebird Rule and have Deaner take the place of Doering in this title match.

Deonna Purrazzo vs. Rosemary

The Knockouts Championship will be defended as current champion Deonna Purrazzo defends the title against Rosemary. Rosemary earned the title shot by pinning Purrazzo in a 10 Knockout tag match on the May 27 edition of IMPACT. That match was made due to the actions of Purrazzo, Kimber Lee, and Susan at Under Siege following the match between Taylor Wilde and Tenille Dashwood. Will Rosemary bring gold to Decay or will the reign of “The Virtuosa” continue?
