Moose & Willie Mack Segment 

Moose: The past few months, I haven’t been taken seriously. The past few months, this TNA Heavyweight Championship hasn’t been taken seriously. That shouldn’t be a problem anymore. You see, some of you guys are sayin I didn’t earn this title. Some of you guys are saying that I grabbed this title out of a trash can. But, at Bound For Glory, I went to hell and back, and I damn well killed a man that some of you guys say is the greatest TNA Heavyweight Champion in this company’s history. I controlled my narrative.

I’m now born again. Now, let’s take a look at my last couple of years in IMPACT Wrestling. I’m undefeated in PPV’s. I beat Rob Van Damn. I beat Rhino. I beat Ken Shamrock. I beat Tommy Dreamer. And at Bound For Glory, I beat the greatest TNA Heavyweight Champion of all-time, EC3. But nobody talks about that. All you guys talking about is the IMPACT World Champion, Rich Swann. Congratulations, Rich, around your waist, you carry what I still believe is the second most important championship in this company. But ask EC3 what pain really feels like. In fact, most of you guys probably don’t remember that, because everybody have a little a lapse in memory. But i’ll show what you pain looks like. Now, Rich Swann, I know Wille Mack is a good friend of yours. If Willie Mack wakes up, how about you ask Willie Mack what pain really feels like, because he experienced it, firsthand. You’ve been warned.
