-Alberto El Patron comes out to the ring without his title, the commentators saying that he relinquished the belt earlier this week. AEP says he loves IMPACT because he doesn't have to pretend he's something he's not and he has complete freedom. He says he has and will prove again that he deserves to be champion, Alberto says he's not a talker, but a fighter then proceeds to call out Lashley. EC3 comes out instead and gets in the ring saying that it was noble of him to relinquish the title and that you have to earn title shots. EC3 challenges Alberto to a number one contender's match and Alberto says he is there to fight Lashley and he was promised a rematch against Lashley.
Alberto starts to leave the ring, EC3 saying that Alberto doesn't know who he's messing with and insults his manhood before Alberto gets back in the ring. Alberto says he's in IMPACT Wrestling to fight the big dog and not the bitch, EC3 asking if there's anything he can say to make him fight him tonight, but Alberto reiterates the bitch line before EC3 shoves Alberto. They brawl, but security is quick to break them up, EC3 leaving up the ramp as as security hold Alberto back.Alberto then accepts the match with EC3 for tonight as we go to commercial.
