We head back to the ring for the next action-packed match!
Suicide vs. Gio
The match between both men starts off well and sportsmanlike. We see both of them lockup. All of a sudden, Eric Young, with his new ally, Joe Doering, comes down to the ring and takes out both opponents. The referee calls for this match to end in a no contest.
Winner: No Contest
Post-Match: Eric Young gets right down to it by saying that he and Doering are now in control.
Backstage: Gia Miller interviews the now two-time Knockouts Champion, Deonna Purrazzo, and Kimber Lee. Purrazzo says their plan is coming along perfectly. Lee informs everyone that she is recovering just fine after Su Yung's attack last week. Both women will team in the Knockouts Tag Team Tournament. Following that, a message from Yung appears on the mirror that reads, "next week ur time haz come."
Backstage: Heath is excited to schedule an appointment to follow up on his injury. The closer he is to being cleared, the closer he is to get a contract with Impact. Rhino leaves the room to give Heath his privacy while he calls the doctor. Rhino runs right into Eric Young and Joe Doering. He controls these two vicious men for their heinous attacks since Saturday. Both Young and Doering stomp away on Rhino. Heath opens the door to figure out what's all the commotion about outside. They come into the room and shut the door.
The third match is underway!

Backstage: Scott D'Amore feels bad that TJP lost his match with Rohit Raju for the X-Division Championship last week. He apologizes for the heavy stipulation that TJP cannot challenge for it anymore. But, he does hint that maybe a different persona of his can...
It was tough luck for @MegaTJP against @HakimZane last week.— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) November 18, 2020
If only there were somebody named something other than TJP who could challenge for the X-Division Championship... #IMPACTonAXSTV @ScottDAmore pic.twitter.com/jrwrNf0zuA
After the commercial break, we see a recap video showing the Good Brothers victorious won on Saturday for the Impact World Tag Team Championships.
Backstage: The Good Brothers are sitting with Scott D'Amore chatting about merchandise. Ethan Page barges into the room. He wants a rematch. The Good Brothers think they should see how much he wants this rematch. So, they are going to find Page, a "phenomenal" opponent. If he wins, The North will get a rematch for the titles.
