Not so much a backstage segment as Tenay and Taz are joined 'by satellite' by Karen Jarrett. Karen insinuates that Angle is the one who pushed her, and caused her injury. Karen says she's under all different types of stress, and she's not going to let Tenay get her blood pressure up. She says when Jeff gets into the ring with Kurt, he's going to win, be the #1 contender, and bring the gold medal back where it belongs. Karen says when Jarrett brings the medal home, she's going to wear it, and do what she does best. Tenay calls Karen a 'ball-buster', this cuts Karen off, while she protests, and segues into the video package for this match.
The bell rings and we're ready to being the main event of the evening. Angle and Jarrett circle each other before Angle backs Jarrett into the corner. Jarrett goes into the ropes to force Angle away.
