In the back Morgan shows a NASTY bruise on his arm and he says he tore his right pectoral muscle (which is the same injury that Alabama's Safety Mark Barron had last year, takes about 6 months to rehab). A very somber sounding Morgan says he has no choice but to pull out of the tournament and he's gone 9 years without an injury and now when the BFG Series comes up and this happens. Morgan says his whole world ended when the doctor told him that he tore the muscle and he says the World Title is his world and he doesn't want it, he NEEDS it.
Tenay and Taz discuss the injury and they wish him a speedy recovery and then discuss Hardcore Justice.
They take a look at the BFG Series Matches from last week's live shows where Bobby Roode (2 wins), Bully Ray, Scott Steiner, Gunner, and James Storm earned points in the Tournament. They really focused on the fact that Samoa Joe lost 3 times in matches and put emphasis on how he was dominating the matches yet still fell. Crimson remains on top with 31 points while Gunner & RVD have 28 points to be in second.
In the back Bully Ray is playing angry birds and says he isn't worried about Crimson. He says he's a freaking legend while Crimson has been in the business for a cup of coffee and he'll beat Crimson when he wants to. Ray turns his attention to AJ Styles and says he'll beat AJ this Saturday night in their BFG Series Match at a Live Event in Houston. He says AJ better not have forgotten him because he's the one that beat his ass.

In the back Madison says she's going to sit front row for Tara's match but Sting approaches her with his box or cage or whatever. He says he has something far worse than Tara's spider and if she goes anywhere near the ring tonight he'll let her see it.
