Strictly Business Interview 

May Valentine: Please welcome, Strictly Business, which only consists of three members now. Guys, how do you feel about not having Nick by your side anymore?

Chris Adonis & Thom Latimer: Freedom !!

Kamille: You see, May, isn’t it nice that you can finally get my thoughts, the boys’ thoughts because Nick isn’t here to talk, talk, talk and steamroll the conversation like always.

Chris Adonis: Yeah, you know, the fact of the matter is, May, we were Strictly Business, we were carrying his dead ass around and we are gonna prove it tonight.

Thom Latimer: Exactly! If you think about it, that’s why he’s gone out and found his old pal Doug because he can’t hang by himself, you know what I mean. He needs some other bottom dwellers to hang onto. Typical, right? British Invasion, you’re a British myth, that’s all you were, that’s all you ever will be.

May Valentine: Some harsh words for Nick Aldis. Thank you for your time today, guys.

Raven & Natalia Markova Segment 

Kyle Davis: That’s right, Joe, I do have breaking news. We just found out that Tim Storm has decided, after the events that took place, to suspend Kenzie Paige. And fittingly enough, joining me at this time, it’s Raven and Natalia Markova, who was involved in that situation that caused that suspension.

Natalia Markova: Yes, and I think that was a smart decision. As for Kenzie, honestly, I don’t think she even belongs in the ring with me. Come on, look at me, I have this look, I’m a model, this girl is just jealous. She’s not on my level. Don’t interrupt me, I didn’t say everything. Kenzie is just whatever garbage. Honestly, I feel bad for her. I feel bad for this girl, she needs some work. But whatever, that was a good decision, I agree.

Kyle Davis: Speaking of decisions that are agreed upon, Raven, as of late you haven’t exactly agreed with the decisions Tim Storm is making, so let’s just ask the question. If you were in his position, what would you have done?

Raven: It doesn’t matter because I wasn’t in his position. I would never be in his position because I would make the right decision. Shut up, Tim Storm is a renegade, he’s an ignoramus, he’s a buffoon, he makes all bad decisions. Tim Storm obviously paid these people to be here. Look, Tim Storm has no business being here, he should be in a jail or a halfway house as far as I’m concerned.

Kyle Davis: I’m glad you had that opinion, other people have had opinions. I’m seeing the two of you together, and I have to ask, is there something we don’t know about going on between the two of you?

Natalia Markova: Listen, is my new friend. But, of course, when you see somebody like me, you have those questions. So I need to answer it right away, for you and for anybody else who’s wondering, I have a daddy at home who takes care of everything I need. My money, my vacations, my diamonds, jewelry, cars, whatever I want. So that’s the answer. And, guys, don’t even try.

Austin Aries Backstage Interview 

May Valentine: Joining me at this time is a very special guest, Mr. Austin Aries. Welcome to the NWA. I’d love to know what your expectations are for your upcoming semi-finals match against Luke Hawx?

Austin Aries: Do you want the long answer, or you want the short answer? The short answer is victory, very simple. One objective when you’re in a tournament, to win your match. Now, I know Luke Hawx, he’s rough, he’s tough, he’s strong, but what he’s not Austin Aries. I’ve been a World Champion all over this industry and now the championship that I have my sights on is the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship. I know a lot of people think at this stage of my career, that I’m here to pass the torch to the next generation, but you got it all wrong. I’m not passing any torch to anybody. I’m gonna see who’s man enough to take the torch from my hand. And, Luke Hawx, I don’t think it’s you.
