Backstage at Mark Henry's we see Jade Cargill, her baddies and Athena. Athena thinks Cargill is scared. Cargill doesn't like that at all. Athena blames Cargill for a number of things, including the fact that Cargill has wronged many. For this matter, Athena wants to stop herself once and for all. Athena exits the set, bringing the segment to a close.
The Tag Team Champions Swerve in the Glory are now backstage with The Acclained being interviewed by Tony Schiavone. The two engage in a war of words, which Swerve ends with harsh words. He insinuates that Bowens is burdening his partner with his permanent injuries.
It's time for the pinnacle, that is, for the leftover part. Wardlow and FTR head to the ring. Harwood grabs a microphone straight away. He reviews his story and makes it clear that not everyone loves FTR and that would be fine. He touches on the reactions to his match at All Out. It is a very important match for him. The three are interrupted by the Motor City Machine Guns, which have Satnam Singh, Jay Lethal, and Sonjay Dutt in tow. MCMG introduce themselves. Alex Shelley unpacks. He doesn't have the money like a Dax Harwood, but he does have one thing he doesn't have. He is respected in the locker room. Harwood didn't let that get to him. However, when Dutt brings Harwood's daughter into play, he's had enough. He steps out of the ring to launch an attack, but is stopped by Wardlow and Cash Wheeler.
We now see the obligatory split screen interview with Mark Henry. His guests today are Main Event opponents Ricky Starks & QT Marshall. Starks have already taken care of the factory. He locked the entire stable in their locker room. When QT tried to free her, Starks launched an attack. The two fought all the way into the ring, where the match officially started.
Ricky Starks defeated QT Marshall via a pinfall after a spear.
Match time: 7:00
-During the match, the factory suddenly came to the ring and caused a stir.
After the match, Powerhouse Hobbs appears and starts a brawl with Starks. The referees try to separate the two but can't. Meanwhile, Bryan Danielson appears on stage and stares down with Chris Jericho. With these chaotic pictures, the last show before All Out goes off air.
