Konnan makes his way to the ring.

Salnia says they are talking about her sex life because Konnan does not have one.

Konnan says there are levels to this game and he is the penthouse while she is the underground garage. Konnan reminds Gino of what he told him about Salina and what she did.

The Dynasty make their way to the ring.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman tells Gino to listen to him. There is a reason why he is the only person on the roster with not just one contract, but two elite major contracts. There is a reason why everyone in The Dynasty is a top guy. If you want to be like MJF and the Dynasty, you know the right move.

Holliday tells Gino there is only one thing that he needs to understand. When the Dynasty is in the building, you are all breathing rareified air.

Hammerstone says the decision is clear and simple. Do you go with the senile, washed up has-been who could take all of the growth hormones in the world and not look like Hammerstone, or you can go with a girl who never made a real champion in MLW. You can go with the Dynasty.

Gino looks around and he shakes hands with Konnan, but then he kicks him and then The Dynasty join in the attack. Gino joins forces with the Dynasty and puts his fist into the mix.
