Taryn called out the Dollhouse Forces. Rebel, Marti Bell and Jade came out to try and intimidate Sky. Revel’s new outfit was just goofy.

The three women circled the ring. Sky wondered if the women really wanted to “go”. Sky knew that the Dollhouse didn’t have enough women. It turned into a Triple Team on Sky. They stomped away until Angelina Love and Madison Rayne walked down. It was a reunion of the Beautiful People! Love took the stick and warned that “Playtime’s Over”. She made it official…there is a New And Improved Beautiful People! Sweet! Sky told Taryn to “Bring It”. Pope was ready to pass out with excitement!

Impact looked back at the first Ethan vs Matt World Title Match, held under Full Metal Mayhem Rules. Both men looked incredible in this one but Ethan came out on top.
