Backstage Kurt Angle is backstage teaching Wes Brisco about "timing" and the wrestling business. Sting shows up and says that it is "time" to take out some Aces & Eights. They tell Brisco to "watch and learn" as they head off.
Joseph Parks is in the ring, and he says he's so sore it took him an hour to get out of bed this morning. He says he realized the human body wasn't meant to go through tables. He says his partners and attorneys are telling him to give up this quest against the Aces & Eights, but it's not about being a performer or being a professional wrestler, it's about being a man. He demands his match, and calls out general manager Hulk Hogan to give it to him.
Hulk Hogan answers the call, and out comes the Hulkster to a huge irruption from the Impact Zone. Hulk says the whole roster is proud of him because of what he did last week in the brawl with Aces & Eights. Hulk says sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, and last week he was very, very lucky. Hogan says he can't put Parks in a match because of liability, and out comes Bully Ray! The Bully says he comes out because Hogan has been telling everybody "no" for the past two months. He says Parks might just be a lawyer, but he's a pretty tough son of a bitch. Bully brings up their matches, and says he believes in Joseph Parks. Hogan says he's running the company, and Bully says that it's not just him who believes, but the Impact Zone as well. The crowd cheers, and Bully tells Hogan to listen to his Hulkamaniacs. The crowd starts a "Yes!" chant, and Hogan says "just this one time" before shaking their hands.
AJ Styles is in the back yelling at the production crew for letting James Storm go out and distract him during his match earlier tonight. Storm walks up and says that he made the decision to go out there, nobody else. He runs down Styles for being "the face of TNA", and says he's going to kick in that face this Sunday.
