|By Christian Miller | January 28, 2013 | Comments|
Lethal says that wherever Steen goes, his scumbags follow him. He asks Steen to accept his challenge for the title like a man. Steve Corino interrupts him and says he would have thought Lethal's mother had taught him more respect. He says that Steen spit on Lethal's mother since his dad threw a drink at him.
Lethal calls Steen out and says he only cares about himself. He says Steen is afraid to accept his challenge, and that he is fueled by not only his desire to win, but also his hatred for Steen and his family.
Lethal says that Steen knows until he beats Lethal, he is nothing. Lethal formally issues his challenge, and Steen goes to the apron and accepts.
Veda Scott is then shown backstage with Michael Elgin. He says that he will beat Roderick Strong at 11th Anniversary, and that there will be Book of Truth to help Strong win.
