Bobby Roode opened the show coming to the ring. He talks about how he paid off the Aces and 8s and that they didn’t fulfill their deal.

James Storm and Jeff Hardy defeated DOC and the masked one (Mike Knox). After the match, Devon revealed that the one who paid them off was Austin Aries.
AJ Styles came to the ring and cut a depressing promo about this being his worst year. He gets angry and informs us that he would start looking out for him over the interests of TNA. Sounded like a turn to the dark side.
Bully Ray defeated Jessie with the Bully Cutter.
Kenny King defeated Rob Van Dam in a non-title match after using the ropes to get the pin.
Aries comes to the ring for a promo. He admits to hiring the Aces and 8s saying that he was overlooked in favor of Hardy. He didn’t get paid when he fought the gang.

Aries and Hardy get into a scuffle where Hardy nearly hits his finisher.
The following was taped for 12/20:

A bunch of Christmas decorations are in the ring and we are now joined by Bad Influence. They bring out Santa Clause and give him pants. Daniels trash talks AJ Styles but is interrupted by James Storm. He got in the ring and knocked down the Christmas tree. Storm questioned the identity of Santa. Santa failed to guess what Storm got last year so Storm laid him out with the Last Call. He then throws Santa’s presents into the audience.
