The Main Event Mafia start off the show this week and they make their way to the ring. Kurt Angle says that Bobby Lashley tried to make a name for himself at Angle’s expense. He says that when his reputation is tarnished and he will pay. He said that the MEM and Lashley had an agreement, but he kicked dirt on it. He calls out Lashley and Lashley comes out with a baseball bat, oddly much like Sting’s baseball bat.

Lashley says that they did have an agreement and then runs through the roster of the MEM. Lashley says that he is still hungry and he wants titles, but the mafia wants to cheat and steal them from others. Lashley says he can’t be bought. Angle says he can’t be bought because he is young and stupid like the rest of the locker room. Lashley says he has an offer that he can’t refuse.

Mick Foley then comes out to the ring with mic in hand. He thanks Lashley for saving him last week and asks Angle to look in the camera and see the board members. He says that they are waiting for the ratings that the MEM promised. Foley offers a match where Foley and Lashley will go up against Angle and Kevin Nash. He says that both Nash and Angle’s titles will be on the line. The winner will get that title. Angle says that the title match is on and he is upset. So tonight, Foley and Lashley will be taking on Nash and Angle in tag team action. If Nash or Angle loses, they will give up their title.
