Backstage Segment: Maria Kanellis-Bennett
Maria says she can’t wait to find out who she will be facing at Bound for Glory for her Knockouts title. She doesn’t want to step on Gail Kim’s hall of fame induction, so we will have the ceremony tonight instead of at BFG.
In Ring Segment: Maria and Allie
Maria says she is the greatest Knockout Champion. Unfortunately, everyone wants to talk about someone else. The crowd starts to chant for Allie. Maria says no, it’s not Allie. Allie is stupid and common just like everyone else in the arena. Maria calls Gail Kim to come to the ring so they can get her hall of fame induction out of the way. Maria airs a video package featuring all the times she has attacked Kim. Maria tells Kim that she wrote her speech for her: “Maria is better than me” the end. Maria gives Kim a picture of herself as the championship. Allie says she actually got Kim a gift because she thinks Kim is the greatest Knockout of all time. Allie tries to give Kim her gift, but Maria grabs it and stomps on it. Dixie Carter joins them in the ring and tells Maria that as long as she is the Knockouts champion it is a conflict of interest for Maria to be in charge of the Knockouts. Dixie says Kim will get her proper induction at BFG. Dixie also enters Kim in the gauntlet match to determine the number one contender for the Knockouts championship.
Knockouts Gauntlet Match
Jade and Allie are to kick off the gauntlet. Before Allie can get in the ring, Maria comes out and tells Allie that she has someone better than her in the match tonight. Maria introduces Laurel Van Ness.
Gail Kim faces Maria at Bound For Glory.
