Lauren is backstage with Rhino, she asks him if he has any comments about his match with Lashley tonight. Rhino says he doesn’t care about MMA because real men lace up wrestling boots. He says when you look out there you don’t see an octagon, you see a TNA wrestling ring. Rhino says Lashley is in his house and he won’t have gloves or kick pads. He says people call him the war machine because he’s an animal and he won’t quit; also because he doesn’t feel any pain and because tonight he’s going to rip Lashley in half with a gore.
