Later in the broadcast, Cage came out to confront AJ during an in-ring ceremony where Kurt Angle crowned AJ his “Prince”. However, before Cage could unleash his anger – Samoa Joe hit the arena as well to demand a shot at the World Title. Jim Cornette eventually came out to put a stop to shouting match and announced that next week, it will be Cage vs. Styles vs. Joe on “iMPACT!” with the winner facing Kurt Angle for the World Championship at Against All Odds. However, if AJ wins, he has the choice of facing Angle or letting the champ rest until Lockdown in April!
