He is doing so because he is taking the PPV hostage. He wants his match with Storm to be for the title shot at Lockdown and he doesn’t care who tries to stop him.

James Storm is out and says that there is a lot of beer drinkers here tonight. He calls Rays calves chicken legs, and then says he will knock out Ray and then remove him. They are scheduled for their match later, and that Ray wants it for the title shot. Storm then says he will give it to him right now.
