We head to WrestleHouse! The Deaners have put together a toga party as a bonding experience. Swinger wanted Crazzy Steve to dress like him so they stood out from all the others. After commercial, the party was in full swing. Taya was drinking away her loss last week. Kylie Rae showed up and Taya lost her lunch. She called for Bravo to hold her hair but he was nowhere to be found. He was off pouting because Rosemary and Larry D were nowhere to be found. Swinger wanted to "Fuji" someone and ended up accidentally tossing powder into Steve's eye. Steve screamed that he was blinded and Tommy Dreamer told him he was already blind. Steve demanded a Blindfold match with the loser dressing like each other next week.

Young came out on the stage. He mocked Eddie trying to be the hero and the martyr. He said everything done was by design. He said that perhaps people are overlooking that what Young did to Rich Swann was a beautiful, orchestrated act by a world class maniac. He said he wasn't going to fight Eddie tonight, but next week, just like he planned. Edwards said if he wants to wait a title shot, that's fine but he's getting his ass kicked right now. They began brawling until they were pulled apart by security and officials.

Gia Miller interviewed new X-Division Champion Rohit Raju. He said he was plotting and scheming but it was all worth it. He said he was never given opportunities because he wasn't the cool person in the locker room, but he's going to be the exact opposite. Who can beat Rohit?

Madison Rayne was back with Locker Room Talk. The Rascalz were her co-hosts. They did some comedy where they thought she was into getting, well, high. She shot that down real quick. Ace Austin and Madman Fulton were the guests. Austin said the Good Brothers may have gotten over on them last week but their business isn't done. The Rascalz were mocking this and Fulton wanted to fight. Austin said they were going to respect Madison's space and they walked off. The Rascalz tried to invite Rayne to the tree house. Her reaction and facial expressions in this segments were just great. She's really underrated in segments like this.

Sami Callihan hacked in for a promo. He basically promised he was coming for Rob Van Dam and Katie Forbes and they'll never know when he is coming for them but next week, he's going to the ring to call them out.

They aired a video where EC3 talked about defeating Kurt Angle for the TNA title. He said that night he shared a moment with those some important to him and so intimate, he can't let go. Today, he still can't let go to of that moment. He sacrificed and gave everything of his heart, body, mind and soul and all he wanted was respect. All he got, though, was pain and regret. He said as long as this title exists, that pain remains. The TNA title will control him. He said Moose has a chance to be one of the best, but he's a false idol hidden behind the music, the gear, the presentation. He's wondered if he could go back to the happy person he used to be, but he realizes now he has to let go and to do so, he has to destroy the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. He invited Moose to come to the destruction of the title. He said that destroying the belt is the only way he will be free. GREAT promo.
