CAGE, JOE AND ANGLE BRAWL TO END PROGRAM
In the main event on Thursday’s “iMPACT!”, Samoa Joe faced off against longtime rival AJ Styles, but the bout was thrown out after Rhino hit the ringside area and attacked Styles! Last week, AJ dressed up like Raven to surprise Rhino and bloodied “The War Machine” – so Rhino was waiting for payback and got it Thursday! Following the main event, another brawl broke out between NWA World Heavyweight Champion Christian Cage, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe to end the program. Styles and Rhino got involved, with Cage and Styles brutalizing Angle and Joe! As a result, TNA management director Jim Cornette has announced that Cage and Styles will face Angle and Joe next week in the main event on “iMPACT!”. Still, the question remains – is Samoa Joe the man advising Cage for his upcoming World Title match against Angle?
