James Mitchell cuts a promo…Abyss is afraid of barb-wire, and he treats and egg as if it’s Sabu’s brain.
The lights go out, and we see a countdown on the screen….CHRISTIAN CAGE IS IN TNA! Christian says that he in TNA so he doesn’t have to see a grown man dress up like a doctor and pretend to pull things out of another man’s ass. He’s there so that the same person says that same thing every week. And he isn’t there because he was fired. He is there because he loves wrestling. He also mentions that he was not low balled in a contract offer, he just wanted to be part of something big. He wants Jarrett to know that he is there to take the NWA title. Scott D’Amore & Bobby Roode come on out to welcome Christian. D’Amore mentions some old times they had together with ‘Adam, Jericho and Lance.’ D’Amore wants Cage to join them. With Cage, they can be unstoppable. Cage wants to ask a question, but Roode gets in the middle of things, and says that they need an answer right now. D’Amore shuts up Roode, and then he gives Cage a TNeh shirt, saying that they don’t need an answer now, but they need one by the end of the night. Christian says that it looks like the right size, but he’s not sure if it’s the right fit.
