-Opening video package and pyro
We are live from Orlando. It's Open Fight Night and the Bound for Glory Series continues. Storm is back at #1, followed by Joe and Angle.
James Storm's music hits and he makes his way to the ring.
Storm addresses the new World Champion and congratulates Austin Aries. He says he's #1 in the BFG Series and on the fast track for a title shot but he has not forgotten about Bobby Roode. He says it's just personal between them. He addresses the Aces & Eights and says that he has b*lls and doesn't need to jump anybody from behind. He wishes Hogan to get well soon.
Storm calls out who he calls the greatest wrestler to ever step in a ring, Kurt Angle. Angle's music hits but he doesn't show. His music hits again and there is still no Angle. The crowd chants for Angle and Storm instructs a cameraman to "go get him." The camera shows Angle getting stomped by Aces & Eights, backstage.
Tenay and Taz recap what just happened.
Samoa Joe enters the Impact Zone. He calls The Pope out.
Bound for Glory Series: Samoa Joe vs. The Pope
Pope only has 7 points in the series. Joe takes it right to Pope in the corner with strikes. Pope reverses it but Joe regains offense and hits a kick to the head. Pope hits a right hand that takes Joe down. Joe is on the losing end of a scuffle and ends up on the outside. Pope follows him out and kicks him in the face again.
Back in the ring, Pope drops knees to the gut. Joe keeps favoring his jaw. Pope hits a clothesline for 2. Pope gets another 2 and is relentless with his offense. Pope drops elbows and fists like an MMA fighter. Joe catches him in an armbar and wins.
Winner of 10 points by submission: Samoa Joe
Bobby Roode comments on Aces & Eights from earlier in the day. He is not a part of it and has more important things to worry about. He is going to prove Aries' win was a fluke.
Jeff Hardy comes out to call someone out.
Hardy is in the ring and he welcomes us to Open Fight Night. Robbie E.'s music hits and he comes out with Robbie T. He says everybody is ducking him so he's calling Hardy out, "bro."
