-James Storm makes his way to the ring. Storm says they are 10-days away from Bound for Glory. 10-days away from resolving the conflict between he and Roode. Storm isn’t coming to prove that he is a better wrestler, he is coming to prove that he is a better man. And now it seems that Hogan has assigned a special enforcer into their match. An MMA superstar, a Bellator fighter, hell he’s a King.
Booby Roode makes his way to the ring. Roode says he doesn’t give a damn about King Mo, and neither should Storm. Storm should be focused on fighting Roode in 10-days, because Storm has never beaten him. Roode says it will all explode at BFG. No one in TNA can contain them, so Hogan went and got King Mo. Roode says this will be a fight, and he will not stop until he stands over Storm’s body, knowing that he has ended his career. And no man will stop him. King Mo, if you think you can stop me, you have another thing coming. This is Roode’s world, he is the It Factor, and King Mo cannot stop him. If Mo were here right now he would say it to his face.
King Mo now makes his way out, crown and robe included. Roode talks shit to him, and they come face to face. Roode shoves him and takes off his jacket and Mo shoves him down. Roode backs off and Mo makes his way to the ring. He comes face to face with Storm, and Storm raises his hand and then gives him a beer.

-We get a video package, featuring the KIDNAPPING from last week.
-We then see Aces and Eights apparently water boarding Joseph Park. He begs to be let go, and the leader says he knows who will represent them at the PPV.

-Sting and Hogan make their decision…NEXT!
-Sting and Hulk Hogan make their way to the ring. Hulk says the deal has been made with Aces and Eights, but this has become personal with him because they will not let him in the war. Sting is in the trenches, and he needs a running mate. He watched Sting talk to Angle, he watched Joe destroy RVD, and even Bully Ray proved he has the same agenda. But at the end of the day they need someone who can get the job done. And they have agreed on Mr. Anderson as the partner.
Mr. Anderson’s music hits, but he doesn’t come out because Aces and Eights attacked him outside. Hogan says to go and find him and get him some help. Bully Ray arrives in the ring and says they picked Anderson over him, and now he is laid out. He tells Sting to talk sense into Hogan. Bully says Sting doesn’t ant Anderson to go to war, Sting needs a warrior and Bully Ray is that warrior! He wants them worse than anyone else, they cost him the world title. Bully says Sting NEEDS him and the fans need him to fight for TNA. “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? I am Bully Ray, and I am your guy.” Convince Hogan, let him know that he is ready to go to war. Sting says he wants to go with Bully. Bully says you don’t love him, but you have to respect him. he asks Hogan to shake his hand because he is standing by Sting’s side. Hogan shakes his hand and says Bully will fight for him and everyone here. Bully says, “you got it brother.”
