Moose says at No Surrender he did it again. He tells the crowd he stepped in the ring with a titan and put him down. However, all anyone’s talking about is Eddie Edwards.
Moose claims there’s only one man in pro wrestling that needs to be acknwloedge, and it’s him. Moose says without him there wouldn’t be an Eddie Edwards. He says when you step into the ring with him, he changes your world forever.
Moose asks the crowd what happened to Josh Alexander after he beat him. He says Alexander lost his mind after he beat him. He brings up Matt Cardona hitting Jordynne Grace with a chair. Moose also questions what downward spiral W. Morrisey will go on after he lost.
Before Moose can say much more, he’s interrupted by Heath. He asks if Moose thinks this is a joke. Heath says Eddie Edwards is a big part of Impact, and everyone loves him. Heath believes they’re at war in Impact. The crowd cheers Heath after he questions Moose as a champion. Heath says he busted his ass to get to Impact. He claims despite being out for a whole year, Impact stuck by him.
Moose asks where Heath was when Honor No More was causing chaos. Heath questions if Moose has heard of the COVID-19 protocols. He says now that he’s negative and Moose is done with Morrisey, he’s been wanting a piece of Moose. Moose is World Champion now, so he can become the champion that fights for the company.
Moose wonders if that’s really what Heath wants. He doesn’t think Heath wants to go down that same downward spiral. He says he doesn’t care about Honor No More, Impact Wrestling, or anyone in the back including Heath’s kids. The two men exchange blows and Heath drops Moose with the Wake Up Call.
Backstage Scott D’Amore tells Rhino he can have Eddie Edwards one on one at Sacrifice.
After the commercial, Honor No More shows up backstage, and they’re late to the event. D’Amore tells them it’s hands-off against them until the six-man tag tonight. D’Amore wonders where Eddie Edwards is, but they tell him he’s coming on his own time. Moose shows up and tells the group he doesn’t have an issue with any of them but warns them not to get in his way. He tells them not to come after his World Championship, or there will be problems.
D’Amore asks Moose what the hell’s happened to him because he doesn’t have a problem with Eddie’s actions. D’Amore asks if maybe Moose is the joke and announces Moose vs Heath for the title at Sacrifice.

Winners: Honor No More
Eddie Edwards comes to the ring after the match and admits he sees everyone feels betrayed. He says fans are right to feel that way. He says they’re wrong to blame him. Eddie says he’s known Honor No More for a long time, but that’s not why he joined them.

Eddie says two years ago, everything changed. Nobody would know who was going to show up in Impact Wrestling. He had faith that Impact Wrestling would do what was best for the company. He says he had the same faith in them when Kenny Omega challenged for Impact Title. However, Richard Swann failed and caused them to lose the title.
Eddie Edwards said Impact Wrestling management failed, and he wanted to fix what they broke. He says he waited patiently for his shot. When the time came for Impact Wrestling management to choose who would restore honor, they chose Josh Alexander.
Eddie believes it was that moment that made him realize Impact Wrestling had zero faith in him. He doesn’t want to hear from the fans now. When asked why he did it, he says, he gave everything to the company and got nothing in return. Two years ago he wouldn’t have believed it.
Alisha Edwards comes out and decides to keep everything public. She can’t believe what Eddie’s doing. She thinks he should be asking for forgiveness from everyone. He says she saw him never get his shot. She admits she say that, but she reminds him that he had faith before.
She knows he wanted to bring the title back to Impact, but it was Josh Alexander who brought it. Alisha says Josh did all of that, but Eddie needs to stop bitching and celebrate with his real family. He tells her to take a look because Honor No More is his family now. Eddie says it’s up to her if she’s still his family. He leaves with No More Honor to close the show.
