Braxton Sutter approaches James Storm, wearing an Alabama hat (Roll Tide), backstage and they exchange pleasantries before Storm says he needs to talk to Sutter about something and they walk away.
A video package highlights all of the drama between Gail and Maria over the last several months. A lot of importance was put on a knee injury Gail suffered against Sienna last week, but Maria is going to be out of this match due to a hand injury.
Maria comes to the stage wearing a brace on her hand and Allie is with her. Allie says that Gail should be ashamed of herself for faking her knee injury. She calls Gail a "big faker" and that the only person that deserves any sympathy is Maria due to her hand injury. Maria tells Gail to look at her hand and says that she didn't want this. She says she wanted to come out and kick Gail's ass but unfortunately because of her injury the match is off. Gail tells Allie that she needs to shut her mouth because this is between she and Maria. Gail says the only fake around here is Maria because she has been trying to fake her way out of this match before it even got signed. She calls Maria a liar but Maria asks Gail why she would lie. She says she has proof of her injury but Gail says she doesn't give a damn about her proof because she is in the ring with an injured knee unlike Maria. Gail starts to go after Maria but Billy Corgan comes out before she can get to Maria.
Corgan says that Maria's injury is true and says that the folder he is holding has the x-ray's. Corgan shows the x-rays on the big screen and says that the minute Maria is cleared to wrestle Gail will get her match. Maria says her doctor says it will take a very long time for her hand to heal and she may never get to wrestle again. Gail says Billy needs to make this match happen tonight and Billy says this is Slammiversary and the fans deserve something special tonight. Billy says that he is making the Knockouts Title Match tonight a 3-Way with Gail added and it is right now!

Bram pulls up the mat at ringside as Hebner demands they get back in the ring. Bram tries to hit the Brighter Side of Suffering on the concrete but Drake backdrops him onto the concrete! Drake climbs to the top rope but falls backwards in the ring and he is definitely doing this on purpose now. I don't really understand if he is supposed to have an equilibrium issue or what this stuff he is doing is. The referee counts to nine before Bram rolls back in the ring and Drake covers him for a nearfall. Drake puts Bram in a Cravate and then hits a Leaping Neckbreaker. Drake goes for a Knee Lift but Bram shoves Drake into the ropes and then they collide into each other with clotheslines at the same time.

He says after tonight the fans will not be saying "trouble, trouble, trouble" but will instead be saying "yes we do!"
