-Andy Douglas, who I thought was fired runs down and Abyss gives him the shock treatment. Tough luck bitch.
-Sting is on the video screen. He is wearing Abyss’ old mask, he welcomes the challenge for the PPV. Saying says Abyss was hiding behind the mask, and now it is time for him to be freed of it. Mitchell is standing in his way, but he will witness end times. Sting says they are coming to the end of the journey and Abyss will find that out.
-After the opening deal Tenay and West now welcome us to the show.
-Here are the text message poll results regarding who the consultant is:
34% – None of the above
30% – Goldberg
26% – Brock Lesnar
10% – Samoa Joe
-Leticia is with Angle and Joe. Joe says he has been called a liar, which he says he isn’t. They may hate each other, but Joe has an investment in Angle. He will neutralize Tomko at the PPV and tonight he will have his back; Angle has to do the rest. Angle says he knows Joe’s agenda, and Joe will get his title shot as long as things go the right way. Angle then says he wants to see what the consultant taught him. He also wants to kick both of their asses tonight. HUMBLE THEM~!
-Back from commercial and Tomko is all pissed backstage. Dealing with “That guy” is worse than dealing with Cage. Cage says Tomko is a tough son of a bitch and after the PPV, it will be back to the ay things have always been. Take the night off big man.
-We get a video package for LAX vs. Team 3D. Devon says they would never disrespect family like LAX did. He promises hell to pay because it is now all about respect.
-Ray is in the ring and talks about being a Dudley. What most of you don’t know is my mom’s last name is Lamonico. I am half angry red neck and half pissed off Italian. LAX…you went after my family, my closest Uncle for no reason. You went to the family business and beat him down and we don’t know if he will be the same ever again. So do we continue to chase you for the tag titles…or…do we go for revenge. After discussing it with Devon, we choose revenge. You pissed us off. At AAO’s we will do it Italian Styles, in a Little Italy Street Fight. I will have your blood on my hands! I will beat you down gang style! I will leave you for the vultures and the dogs. When you mess with the family, someone will get wacked.
-Moody Jack with Konnan in a wheelchair make their entrance. Konnan tells everyone to go to hell, he likes himself, so listen up fat ass. Save the air for the blow up dolls. LAX is his family. Ray makes a joke about him walking, which he can’t. Konnan says his uncle got what he deserved. He says 3D will get a war, and they accept the challenge because they run the streets.
-Runt is out, and is yelling all drunk like, why is he here? LAX hits the ring and we have a brawl! LAX lays them out with some weapon shots. Cide chokes out Ray with a coat hanger as Hernandez slams his arm with a chair between the steps and the ring post. LAX is awesome.
-Leticia is with Hemme. She is proud of Hemme. Hemme says it doesn’t matter who her opponent is. She got the opportunity and will prove she can be a part of the company. VKM is here. Kip wants a lap dance. BG says his family watches the show and he won’t be here anymore with Kip. Kip offers up singles and says they aren’t worth $5.
-Back from commercial with a video package for AJ vs. Rhino. They will face at the PPV in a Motor City Chain Match…and there is a POLE INVOLVED!
-JB is with AJ. AJ says it is about time Angle and Joe made it to his level. No one cares about them. He was a triple crown winner, twice, and Angle has one gold medal. He makes fun of Joe being Samoan. He makes a bumblebee joke, did Lawler get a prescreening since he made these jokes Monday? AJ hasn’t forgotten about Rhino either. He will beat Rhino, as always. Cage is here, he likes AJ’s style. Tonight 4 of the biggest stars battle, but only one is Cage. He makes fun of Joe and Cage puts over AJ as being smart. He says they are the premiere athletes. And when Angle looks to tag Joe…he will have to think if he can trust him. Mr. Bob Backlund walks in with wacky sunglasses.

-Sting makes his way to the ring with his Abyss mask and there are prison props everywhere. Sting says the prison yard match is on. They drop the cage down.
