This is the Fightful.com live coverage for tonight's episode of IMPACT Wrestling on POP! Tonight after being gone for 9 years, LAX is back and they're out for blood as Konnan has said he's brought The Latin American Xchange back to IMPACT for the tag team titles that he believes was taken from them. They'll have an opportunity to do just that when they take on Decay and Reno Scum in our main event! Be sure to come back here at 8PM EST to see who walks away with all of the gold!
-We open with Josh and Jeremy arguing while in a meeting with Bruce and Dutch from earlier today.
-Karen comes out to the ring to start the show and has Sienna come out to the ring. They exchange barbs, then Karen says that she doesn't tolerate bullying in "her house", then asks Sienna if they have a problem. Sienna cuts a promo on Allie, then says that she got where she is on her own and not because of who she married. Karen demands an apology, then Sienna's "cousin" KM comes out and defends Sienna. He says he demands respect and tells Karen to shut up and he demands that she apologize to them. Braxton and Allie then come out and Braxton attacks KM from behind, then Karen makes a match between them later tonight.
DJ-Z vs Andrew Everett
They start off even, then do a bunch of flips before Z sends Andrew out of the ring with an arm drag, then dives over the top rope and takes him out. Z hits a diving cross body once they're back in the ring for a quick two count, then Andrew rolls him up for a two count of his own before they exchange forearms. Z clotheslines Andrew, then stomps on him in the corner before Andrew hits a springboard missile dropkick. Andrew drops Z repeatedly, then hits an enzuigiri and a Pele kick before he misses a moonsault, then catches Z coming in for the ZDT, but rolls him up for the pin and the win.

She says that there's no more competition, then ODB comes out to the ring. ODB goes over her accolades and says that Rosemary wouldn't be there if it weren't for her. Rosemary says that she's not worthy, then leaves before the women's locker room comes out and gets in the ring. Everyone makes a claim for the title, all eight of them, then they brawl in and around the ring as we go to commercial.
-EC3 comes out next and says he's sorry for last week and he wants to apologize to Karen and he looks forward to making IMPACT great again. He says that he wasn't happy with himself and that he needs to rebrand, retool and refocus, that he needs to be the guy that beat everyone again. James Storm then comes down to the ring and says that he respects EC3 and that he's been there since the beginning. Storm names off his career and says that they have the same mindset now and that they both want to be champion. Storm says that if anyone deserves a title shot it's him, then they decide that the fans will let them decide who gets the next title shot before they leave.
