From The Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland:

Taz is on assignment.
At the start of the show, Al Snow, “Irish” Pat Kenney and TNA Security tried to keep TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus, Rockstar Spud and Ethan Carter III separated from an enraged Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle.
Magnus was happy that TNA Hall of Famer “The Icon” Sting was gone after last week’s main event. He was also happy from the fact that he also ran out Jeff Hardy and “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles. ECIII took exception to Magnus taking credit for the victories when he, Magnus and Spud were ran out of the ring by Joe and Kurt. Kurt stated that Magnus will go down in history as a paper champion, and that he regretted bringin him into The Main Event Mafia. Magnus had an idea: a tag team match of him and ECIII vs. Joe and Kurt, with Joe and Kurt leaving TNA if they lose.
Joe had a better idea: if he and Kurt won, either one of them would become the #1 contender for the TNA World title!!! Magnus accepted TNA President Dixie Carter didn’t. Magnus decided to go through with it, in spite of Dixie’s announcement that the company’s newest investor was appearing later on.

Storm stated that he knew Gunner before he came to TNA, and Gunner admitted that things did go south when he won the Feast or Fired briefcase. He stated that he got the nickname when bullets flew past his head defending the United States as a Marine, while watching his friends die in battle. Storm mentioned that he always looked out for his tag team partners (“Wildcat” Chris Harris of America’s Most Wanted/AMW and Bobby Roode of Beer Money, Inc.), and apologized to him.
