JB is backstage with the members of Team Flair, and their manager, Ric Flair himself, along with the TNA World Champion AJ Styles. Flair says they appreciate the youth and enthusiasm of RVD and Hardy, but they can't match BMI. He says Abyss is the ugliest man he's ever seen, and Desmond Wolfe has taken him down twice. Flair calls out Jarrett, saying are you kidding me, he's got Sting. He says Hogan called them out tonight and he's got it, blood sweat and tears. Hogan will run from the building with his tail between his legs, and he'll never be seen in TNA again, and Flair promises that.
JB turns to Styles. Styles says he's the longest reigning TNA Champion in history, and there's no one he hasn't beat, so if the Pope thinks he's going to sweat him tonight, he needs to be honest with himself and look in the mirror and say he's no AJ Styles. He doesn't have the star power that Styles possesses. Styles says Pope's services end tonight, and there's two things that he can do, nothing and like it.
