Mike Tenay announces that Taz is the new TNA color commentator. For what seems to be the 800th time, the MEM will start the show. Kurt Angle is immediately interupted by Matt Morgan. Morgan comes out with what appears to be an axe handle. Morgan says that at Hard Justice, Angle asked for his help, but only to screw him over. Angle says that he did say all of that. Morgan asked why he interfered and if he doesn’t answer, he will start swinging. Angle says that he did say all of that and they were working together. Angle claims Morgan went into business for himself when he kicked him. Angle says he heard the ref and thought it was Morgan being pinned.
