Tenay sends it backstage to JB who is standing along with James Storm. He asks Storm if he's ready for Angle tonight. Storm asks how long JB has known him? In 10-15 years he's only ever seen JB interview people and he wants to know how he looks on the other side. Storm puts his sunglasses and hat on JB and begins to interview him. He says that he believes that he can beat Angle for the third time tonight. He tells JB that he has to believe.
