The winner of the match and still GFW Knockouts Champion: Sienna
(due to technical issues the above match was sourced by Wrestlezone.com)_
Bruce Prichard is in the ring and says despite the past issues GFW has had this year has been great but next year will be even better and then reads an announcement regarding former GFW Champion Alberto El Patron. And now, GFW finds themselves without a champion and so it falls on Prichard's shoulders to rectify the situation and a company is only as good as its champion and with his status he can revert the GFW Championship back to its former titleholder and introduces the new GFW Global Champion Bobby Lashley
Lashley's music plays but instead of Lashley we are graced by Jim Cornette's prescence. Cornette says if anyone knows about corporate its him and Prichard says he doesn't know who called Cornette but no one is higher than Prichard and calls security down to the ring to remove Cornette
Cornette says he'll leave after he says what he needs to say and tells Prichard he's not his boss but he's arrogant and always pushing his own agenda and proceeds to fire Prichard. Prichard says Cornette can't fire him and Cornette says he just did
Cornette then says Alberto did not relinquish the title he was stripped and from this day forward everyone is going to have to earn everything they get. No one is going to be handed anything and he's not giving anyone the GFW Championship. Next week, 20 of the biggest stars on the roster are going to fight in a 20 man gauntlet and whoever wins will prove that he earned the gold. LAX make their way out to the ring as we go to commercial
We're back and Konnan is right up in Cornette's face saying they changed one lying cracker for another one. He shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get his title shot, but Cornette says this is the decision corporate made. Konnan doesn't trust him, and Cornette should watch out ofr this silent tsunami. Low Ki says he can respect Cornette's position, but he smells fear. Cornette says he feels for Low Ki more than anyone, but the situation is out of his hands. But what he will do since Low Ki is getting screwedmost by this, he can enter the gauntlet at #20, and if Low Ki is as good as he thinks he is, he can win. LAX surrounds Cornette, and he says if anyone lays a hand on him, they'll be spending the night in jail. Konnan says Boricuas run the pen here in Orlando, and they could get a cup of soup and a honey bun for his ass in jail, but Cornette says he may be a cracker, but he's no liar, and he may not like what Cornette says, but he can believe it. Cornette leaves, and Konnan says not to doublecross him.
