Okay Ricky, we all know what you’re walking into, so much at stake, the worlds heavyweight championship. There has to be so much going on with you, why don’t you tell us about it?

Ricky Morton: You know, sometimes you strike a match that you just can’t put the flame out. Some of these guys, I just don’t know what they’re thinking, but I want to tell you a little something about The Rock N Roll Express because I can’t hold it back anymore. And a lot of you young wrestlers, you listen to this. The first thing that we always done in our life is put the fans, number one. That’s why we never minded being number two.

And you know, these guys these days, they don’t understand that Robert and I paved the way for them to make millions and millions of dollars, but I’m not out here crying over spilt milk.

Why Did Nick Aldis Invade Ring Of Honor? 

The Pope & OutLaw Inc Segment 

David Marquez: Is Pope now managing OutLaw Inc?

The Pope: First off dude, you got it all wrong, okay. Pope ain’t becoming nobodies manager, okay. You know, maybe an advisor. These two guys, they don’t need a manager. The reason Pope is here is simple, Pope just worked a little bit of pope magic to get these guys an opportunity, you understand what i’m saying? To get them an opportunity that somehow seems to keep eluding them. Opportunity like that of, Aron Stevens.

The National Champion, who somehow refuses to defend his title. Opportunity like that of Karate. Pope digs. As a matter of fact, some say we may even look alike. No greater lies ever been told. So however my pitch to Aron Stevens, who Pope call, ass for short. I said ass, if you want to be good? Great, that’s fine, but if you want to be great? Then step in the ring with these two guys and prove it.

David Marquez: Alright, Homicide I have a question for you. Are you truly healed? Has the doctor cleared you?

Homicide: I’m ready to go. I’m ready to go, let’s do this.

Eddie Kingston: We’re good, man. We got lost in the shuffle man, we’re good.

The Pope: So it’s simple, it is real simple. Unlike like James Storm and Eli Drake, two formidable competitors, great in their own right. Those two have stumbled somehow to the National Tag Team Championship Match without even getting a pinfall. And then, these two guys, unlike James Storm and Eli Drake, that is a team out of convenience, this right here this is blood. These two right here, this is necessity because they’re brothers. So the night is upon us, the time has come, the moment is here. Let’s go to the ring and we’re gonna prove this together.

Strictly Business Interview 

David Marquez: Okay champ, a lot going on here. Tonight is the night. Any last words before this matchup?

Nick Aldis: The only thing I have to say about this before I hand over is that, when I first came to this country, I was warned about some of the sharks, some of the snakes that would be backstage, some of the people that would backstab me and shut me down at every turn. And you know what’s funny?

Everybody warned me about, “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner and yet the minute that this man met me, he went out of his way to help me and nurture me because he knew a world beater when he saw it. So without further ado, one hand washes the other, here’s the man who doesn’t need any help when it comes to working the stick, Big Poppa Pump has got a few words, tell us Scott.

Scott Steiner: Well the first thing is Nick, the first time I saw you, I knew you were going to be a World Champion. Secondly, I appreciate the fact you gave me a call, gave me the opportunity to beat somebody up. Cause everyday I wake up, I’m pissed off. I wanna punch some of y’all. I want to punch you in the face right now, you piece of garbage. So let me gives a little history lesson to all you rednecks in the crowd.

You rednecks at home, watching TV and eating your potato chips. Taking all those calories, we call them fat asses and I hate fat asses. See right here, this is the NWA Tag Team Title Belt, the original. You see, when Ted Turner bought the NWA, he changed it over to the WCW and then we took it to new heights. We established ourself by destroying and beating up every tag team that was put in front of us and we’re going down as the greatest tag team of all times.

So Ricky and Robert, you two rock n roll punk asses, that’s where you come in. See, Nick has given me the opportunity to beat your ass. It’s very simple, Nick doesn’t like you, I never liked you ever and you guys are gonna find out why they say i’m the man with the largest arms with the shortest fuse in professional wrestling. You’re about to get your ass kicked.
