New World Champion Tessa Blanchard arrives to kick off the show. Tessa says it feels good to stand here as the world champion. It was a hell of a journey to get here, but it’s just beginning. Because now she has a target on her back and Sami has a rematch coming for the championship. She knows he’s listening, and he should be watching his back. They had the fight of a lifetime, and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and she can’t wait to end this for good. Get your ass out here and lets do this. Taya arrives and the champions have stare down. Taya says Sami can’t come out right now, but she’s here and is even better. Taya puts herself over and then talks about how far Tessa has come in the last year, but the truth is that Taya is the one setting the standard and beat Tessa for her championship and beat her in Mexico last year. She also beat her for the AAA women’s championship, and doesn’t think Tessa can hang with the women anymore, and her world championship is a consolation prize. Tessa tells her to put her money where her mouth is; Ace Austin arrives and says he didn’t get his invite to the winner’s circle as they are all champions, Tessa finally did it and became world champion. He has something in common with Taya as Tessa has failed to beat them both. He hits on Tessa, she drops him and Taya attacks Tessa. They beat down Tessa and Trey makes the save. He dumps Ace and Tessa dumps Taya.
