Brown told Jarrett he’s his next opponent. Jarrett told Brown that he is a Double A ballplayer that couldn’t make it in the NFL (shouldn’t he have said MLB, considering there is no AA to the NFL?). Jarrett slapped Brown, and Brown attacked Jarrett which started a brawl. Dusty Rhodes came out, looking around in confusion. Security finally separated the two men.
-After the commercial, Larry Zbyszko was up in Dusty Rhodes’ face. He told Dusty he’s not going to let him hijack the show.

Larry got angry and told Dusty he’s going to bring someone from the championship committee to Impact next week to talk some sense into Dusty. Dusty guessed that it would be Terry Funk, and he chased Larry up the entrance ramp.
