She goes for a cover, and Lee kicks out. Lee connects a devastating tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Lee grabs a chunk of Susie's hair. The referee calls for a break. Lee sends Susie out to the outside with a dropkick. The referee turns his back, which gives Deonna Purrazzo a chance to stomp on top of Susie.
Back from the break, Lee has Susie trapped in the corner. She lands a series of stomps before Susie gets up and lands a few shots. Lee sends Susie down on the mat with a powerful roundhouse kick. Susie, who is laying on the mat, finds herself in a single leg lock. Lee breaks it up and drags her over to the corner. Susie starts to show some shades of Rosemary with an Upside-Down. Lee surprises her with another lockup, which leads towards another set of midsection kicks. Susie jumps on top of Lee with a bench press and goes to town with multiple forearm strikes. Susie catches Lee by sending her face-first into the turnbuckle. She goes for a pin. Lee kicks out at 2. Lee finds her footing again with a sit-down powerbomb. Her powerbomb is not enough to gain a pinfall. Purrazzo tries to get involved, but Susie isn't having it. Susie sends Lee out with Su Yung's Panic Switch. Susie gains another victorious win!

We head back to the Impact Zone for the third match of the evening!
Cody Deaner (w/ Cousin Jake) heads down to the ring only to be attacked from behind by Eric Young. Young smashes Cody's face over and over on the guardrails. They both step into the ring. Young blasts Cody with his devastating piledriver. Cousin Jake runs in to help Cody out. Young sends Cousin Jake out with another piledriver. Young has a wicked smile on his face. Mathews says if we get something out of this, it's that Young will stop at nothing to get his message across to Rich Swann. Young grabs a microphone and warns Swann and Scott D'Amore that whatever he does to anyone up until Bound For Glory, it's all on them. Security comes out to break up Young and Cousin Jake after Young tries to break Jake's ankle, but they don't get too far.
D'Amore runs out and asks what he's doing. Young shouts at him "it's all on you." When Young corners D'Amore, Eddie Edwards sprints down to the ring, and sends Young out on the ramp.
When we come back, we'll see Sami Callihan square off with Rob Van Dam!
Before we see their match, Edwards confronts D'Amore about what he's doing and why he's putting Swann in the main event match at BFG. D'Amore says at Victory Road (Saturday, Oct. 3), Edwards will get his rematch with Young. Edwards promises he'll finish him.
And now, our scheduled match.
