James Storm and Gunner to the ring and Storm says they got to talking, and he wants to drink some beer, but Gunner is looking for a fight. He says they can actually do both, so they are out here looking for opponents and they don't care who it is. Storm says there are a lot of guys in the back who can step up, then Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez come out and make their claim. Chavo says they are good champions, but he's better, and Hernandez is the strongest guy in TNA today. He says they won the tag team titles at last year's Bound For Glory, and they would win again if they got a title match. Gunner says if they want to throw out challenges he has one for them, and they will fight next week and see what happens. Gunner says if Chavo and Hernandez win they get a title shot, but he's going to bash their heads in if they get in his business again.
