At Swinger’s Palace, James Storm, Chris Harris and Chris Sabin kept losing at blackjack. Sabin has to get ready for his match so Storm asked Harris to keep playing and win them some Beer Money. Harris said, “That ain’t right” and Storm apologized. That was pretty funny.
Chris Sabin vs. Deaner
Deaner is alone. James Storm is with Sabin.
They go back and forth with some nice wrestling early. Sabin was playing the technically adept babyface with lots of quick near falls and controlled Deaner.

Josh Alexander showed up and said they are in a three-way at Rebellion with TJP. Austin was dismissive towards him and about TJP, who arrived on the scene. TJP said he’s beaten both of them twice. They were all arguing. Tommy Dreamer broke it up and made a three-way Mystery partner tag team match for Rebellion.
Backstage, Tommy Dreamer asked Eric Young if he thinks he can get away with whatever he wants. Young said he does and he questioned Dreamer still being around when he retired and ran off into the sunset. Dreamer said he never said he was retired. Young said he was going to take out Dreamer one day for good. Dreamer told him to get his boys and come face Dreamer and his boys at the PPV. Young told him that he should remember he brought this upon himself.
They aired a really great video piece on Jazz and her career, talking about training under Junkyard Dog and Rod Price, wrestling Debbie Combs, her ECW tryout, wrestling man there and finally getting an opportunity in WWE. She always wanted to be in Impact and when Jordynne Grace invited her, she was excited. She would have beaten Deonna Purrazzo had it not been for outside interference and now she’s put her career on the line.
Gia Miller interviewed Deonna Purrazzo. She said watching the package made her emotional, remembering what it was like watching women setting the stage for The Virtuosa. She’s building upon the foundation of what Jazz built but she has surpassed that and she’s building a new foundation for the next generation. Gia said she’s heard that Kimber Lee won’t be at ringside and asked if Susan would be. Purrazzo said the only way to do justice to Jazz is to walk into Hardcore Justice by herself. She won’t be defeated. She’s going to give back by retiring Jazz.
Brian Myers burst through a door when Tommy Dreamer was waiting. Dreamer said he’s always pissing people off and Jake Something wants a match at him at Hardcore Justice. Dreamer booked him in a Blind Games match, a Blindfold Hardcore match. Myers said no one ever booked that before because it was a stupid idea. Dreamer said it was booked because he’s the Executive in Charge of Wrestling (ECW). Myers stormed off.
They ran down the lineup for Hardcore Justice this Saturday.
