Back from commercial and Bobby Roode is talking backstage with James Storm about his career and how sometimes it feels like the business slaps you in the face. He's never felt like there were very many people he could trust, and eventually he was alone because he kept pushing himself away. It's getting to be too much. Storm asks what he is saying. Roode says they have a hell of a history, and the bad stuff was on him. He says that Beer Money was special; you can't create stuff like that all the time. He knows that looking back at the end of the day, Storm was the only man he could ever trust.
Storm tells him not to do what he thinks he is going to do. He tells Roode to slap the business back in the face. That's how the business goes. It's dog eat dog, and they knew it coming in. They're the only people responsible for their actions, no one else. Roode hugs Storm and then leaves.
