A camera guy asks Hulk Hogan if there is any update on Sting. Hogan says that there is an update, and it's that Sting isn't here because he doesn't need any more politicians in TNA. He says he's about to make his way to the ring and confront a warrior who's been on the fence recently.
Kurt Angle gives Joseph Park a pep talk for tonight's big main event.
Hulk Hogan makes his way down and calls out AJ Styles, who then comes down to the ring with the Aces & Eights vest. Hogan talks about all the things AJ had to put up with for the past two years, and says he understands what he's going through. He tells him that AJ has never abandoned his fans and his family in TNA, and the company is calling on his help now, because they need the "dangerous AJ Styles". James Storm makes his way out to interrupt AJ before he can say anything.
James Storm says he remembers a stipulation that Hogan made, where the loser of a match wouldn't get a title shot until Bound for Glory of 2013. He says he also remembers being the man who beat him in that match – tough luck, everyone loses big matches every once in awhile. Storm says that their backs helped build TNA, but last week Styles sat and watched as the Aces & Eights beat the hell out of him. He tells AJ to join the Aces & Eights, because he's not the same guy from the Asylum days, or from Orlando, or the fair grounds. AJ Styles walks off with the A&E cut without saying anything.
After a commercial break Hulk Hogan says he's done dealing with AJ Styles. He has one week to make his decision – he's either a part of TNA, or he's gone.
