Matches Announced For This Show (Keep checking back for more updates)
Tables Match: Bobby Roode vs. Bully Ray
Rules of the match: The wrestler that is able to put his opponent through a table wins the match.
Events leading to this match: At Lockdown, Bobby Roode had the opportunity to gain a stake in the company if he was able to lead Team Dixie to victory. To ensure that victory, Dixie Carter hired Bully Ray to be the referee as her "insurance policy". Bully Ray turned against Team Dixie by preventing Roode from putting MVP through a table and then giving Roode a Bully Bomb. His actions led to Dixie losing her ownership in the company to MVP as well as costing Roode a piece of the company.
I Quit Match: James Storm vs. Gunner
Rules of the match: The only way to win this match is to get your opponent to say the words "I Quit".
Events leading to this match: Storm and Gunner were former tag team champions whose relationship went sour when Gunner earned a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship by winning the Feast or Fired Match. The night Gunner cashed in his title shot, James Storm's interference cost him the match. At Lockdown, Gunner beat Storm in a Last Man Standing Match which took place inside of a steel cage. Storm took out his frustrations for this loss during a recent edition of IMPACT Wrestling by beating up Gunner's father.
Knockouts Championship: Champion Madison Rayne vs. Angelina Love
Events leading to this match: Angelina Love has returned to TNA Wrestling after an absence of several years. During her prior stint with the company, Angelina and Velvet Sky formed a group known as The Beautiful People. They eventually allowed Madison to join the group. When Angelina returned it appeared that Madison was going to be a part of the reformed group but Madison turned down the offer to rejoin the group as Angelina offered her a spot in the group in a mocking way. Moments later, Angelina "attempted" to patch things up in the locker room but attacked her instead.
