Yes, he’s part of Strictly Business. Yes, I have a history with Strictly Business, but let’s be honest. If your goal is to prove yourself, you prove yourself against the best. Whether I like them, whether I don’t like them, Tom Latimer is a beast, he’s a machine, he’s one of the best. I asked for this match.

Joe Galli: Speaking of that big matchup, not only do you have to consider Kamille being part of the equation, but you got the rest of Strictly Business, I mean how are you gonna prepare to go up against these pack of wolves that’s constantly been against you?

Tim Storm: It’s nothing I can’t handle Listen, all due respect to those amazing athletes and that’s what they are. Momma Storm taught me right, I will never ever strike a woman cause that’s respect and i’ll never do it.

Thomas Latimer: Tim, what are you talking about? You don’t get another title match, you lost. Look, nobody cares what you got to say. She doesn’t care. I don’t care. These people at home don’t care.

Nick Aldis Promo 

It’s been 471 days since I recaptured the worlds heavyweight wrestling championship. But the number of days i’m more concern with right now is 7. Because it’s been 7 days since I’ve laid down the challenge to Marty Scurll. Money bank guaranteed and you still have yet to respond. I’m trying to figure out why that is. Are you having second thoughts? Are you questioning yourself? Are you questioning me? Are you starting to realize that the wolf on the hill is not as hungry as the wolf climbing the hill? When the wolf is hungry, the food is already there. I’m not sure, but I can tell that you, that you’re probably starting to realize that, the higher the path, the more treacherous it becomes and you are entering very treacherous territory.

But my patience is starting to wear thin. So look, i’m not saying you have to accept, but you do need to respond. You’re a business man. I’m a business man. Make a counter offer, if that’s how you feel. But it better be something that’s high stakes, because you had your chance and you blew it. So if I’m going to put the worlds championship on the line and let you try to take everything that I worked for away from me, you better put something up that’s worth my time. So I expect an answer by the time we reach, ROH Free Enterprise, this Sunday in Baltimore.

David Marquez Interviews Eddie Kingston, The Pope and The Dawsons 

David Marquez: Okay folks, standing by here with The Pope. Social media, the whole world around wants to know, what’s going on with you, The Dawsons and Kingston?

The Pope: DM Marquez and the m stands for money, but that’s a story for a different day. Don’t think that it’s lost on Pope about the questions he has to answer. Specifically, when it comes to why The Dawsons are rolling with Pope, you understand what i’m saying? The Dawsons simply took advantage, they capitalize on opportunity, unlike Eddie Kingston and Homicide. When Pope worked a little pope’s magic to get them a tag team title shot to put them back in the conversation, they blew it. They blew it, Dave.

So it kinda goes like this because it’s doesn’t really reflect in Pope’s humble opinion on Eddie Kingston and his greatness. It doesn’t reflect on Eddie Kingston’s star. But what it does, it reflects on he, who has no star power. I’m talking about Homicide. As you mentioned, all across social media, they understand now. They all have been placed on notice. The boys in the back, they’ve been placed on notice and they all know that you don’t cross the cashier who’s bringing change to the NWA.

Eddie Kingston: Relax, I’m not doing anything. My hands are behind my back, you know what i’m saying. I’m being a good boy. Because you know, the NWA told me I gotta relax cause I came in here today, I had a screwdriver in my pocket, I went under the ring, I got me a wrench and they said, you know what Eddie, please don’t do that, when should. I should go after your eyes. I should go after your tongue and rip it right out your mouth. Look at me, you two be easy. You better look at me and understand something. Don’t you ever in your life disrespect Homicide like that. That man built New York City. He made stars.

All those guys who are champions in other companies, he made them. He’s my blood. Because of him, I didn’t commit suicide, do you understand that? That’s reality. That’s real. I’d die for that man. I’d cry for that man. And you dare disrespect him? I should bury you where you stand. But, I got friends in this business, very few and they know who they are, but they’re a little busy. So, I made a phone call to two green kids, couple of high flyers, they got beautiful smiles, pause. They needed a favor, I needed a favor, so they’re here tonight. Maybe you’ll like them, maybe you won’t, but they got my back. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you, The Bouncers.
