Earlier in the night, NWA promoter Ed Chuman announced that he wants the NWA Women's Title back from Mickie Knuckles. Chuman said Knuckles illegally won it, because the NWA never sanctioned this match where she won the title against Allison Danger and MsChif. Jim Fannin, comes out, presumably to argue with Chuman. Fannin turns and decks Knuckles with a hard clothesline. Ian Rotten made the save. Chuman tells Knuckles she will retain the title only if she scores a pinfall later in the night, leading to this match against Rain.
