Nothing quite puts your lust for vengeance into perspective like running into @theraveneffect in a bar.— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) March 25, 2020

Winners: Reno Scum
After the break, another vignette from Tenille Dashwood is shown.
Next, the Impact Plus Moment of the Week is shown.
After the Impact Plus Moment, #CancelCulture makes a PSA that they are challenging The Deaners to a match next week and that they're going to cancel them. The Deaners respond by saying that there's no way they're going to be canceled because everything they've ever watched was never canceled. They run through multiple TV shows that have been canceled over time. After pondering that thought, they go back to preparing for their match next week.
Somewhere near or far: Sami Callihan makes an appearance. He says that he has a plan, and that plan is to take out Ken Shamrock. He wants the world to know that he sees everything!
After that chilling message, Callihan's family, oVe, makes their way down to the ring.
