TNA Genesis: Samoa Joe & Magnus Vs. Matt Morgan & Crimson (Tag-Team Titles)


Tenay sends it backstage to JB who is standing alongside Crimson and Matt Morgan. He says they're defending their belts against an even more unlikely tag team than themselves. Crimson says he'll give credit where it's due, Joe and Magnus have been impressive. But they haven't beaten anyone like the champs. Crimson says destroyed lives is what he does, and tonight is no different. Morgan says they're the most dominant tag team titles, then he points out that Crimson is still undefeated, and tonight will be no different. Then he turns to himself, calling himself 7 feet of unadulterated terror, and tonight they'll find out why he's the most genetically stacked giant walking today.
