Tonight, the Feast or Fired briefcases will be opened – three men will receive title shots, but one will be fired!
Alberto El Patron is in the ring to kick of IMPACT! Patron talks about challenging Austin Aries at Redemption for the IMPACT! World Championship. Patron says he’s the greatest man that ever lived, not Aries. This causes Aries to come out and join Patron in the ring. Aries says they’ve both competed at the highest level in professional wrestling but unlike Patron, he speaks the truth. Patron challenges Aries to stand face-to-face with him and Aries does just that. Patron says Aries is not the real champion until he beats him. Patron tells the truck to cue Aries’ music but Aries insists that they play Patron’s instead. Aries says this will be Patron’s only chance to hear his music played last because at Redemption, he’s going to retain the IMPACT! World Championship.
