Mick Foley comes out to the ring to start tonight’s TNA Impact. He says that he knew there would be tough times, and that people would be gunning for the title since he won it. He says that he might have to defend the title one to four times a year. He says Jeff Jarrett has taken his smile away and calls Double J out to talk about it. Foley says he wears Double J’s shirt as a sign of respect, but he lost it since he attacked Earl Hebner. Foley says that as of now he is fined and suspended without pay. Double J says that Mick’s comedy act is over starting now. Foley blows a gasket and says he doesn’t care who he is, but no one touches Hebner. Foley says Jeff has gone too far, and Foley says is going to remove Jeff. Jarrett goes to jump Foley but is cut off by Rocco and Sal. The two continue the beat down until Jarrett hits a double clothesline. Jarrett hits a few shots on both men and then a couple of chair shots too. Foley says that he will single handedly throw Jarrett out of the Impact Zone.

Lauren is with Team 3D and is asked about the save of Beer Money last week. Brother Devon says that they have huge issues with the British Invasion. The other reason is because they have respect for Beer Money and they are the tag team of the future.

Jeremy Borash is with Jeff Jarrett and he says he understands why Mick acted the way he did. Double J says he made a mistake and calls out Mick to remove him from the building.
