Cat is going to eat Kanyon’s ass like a pot of collard greens. Ewwwww. And cue Ric Flair’s music. Flair comes out and mocks Cat face to face. If you want Kanyon tonight? You don’t get him tonight, you can have Kanyon at Greed, not before. Cat says he wants Flair, who responds that he could have the Steiners or Totally Buff down here, but Flair wants the Cat. They drop their mics and they put up their dukes. Crowd pops huge for Flair. Flair says no way, then sucker punches the Cat. Cat fights back. Flair flop. Feliner sends Flair to the floor.
