-Back at the clubhouse with Aces and Eights making clever comments to Hogan and Sting. The “leader” says he wants something. He apologizes for the kidnapping, and Hogan asks about Joseph Park. The leader says they had fun until Hogan one upped them. They want to fix that, they have a proposition. The leader says they like them and want to come and go as they please to share the good times. Park is there, tied up and apparently alive still! The leader says they can all go, if at Bound for Glory, they want Hogan to get two guys to face two of their guys. Hogan says he and Sting will fight them. But the leader says it is not about Hogan, he has to watch. So the deal is, Hogan picks two, they pick two, and if Aces and eights win, they get full access. If TNA’s team wins, Aces and Eights will disappear. Sting calls them a piece of shit, and Hogan says they have a deal. They agree to release Park after the match at Bound for Glory, he is their insurance.
