– The Main Event Mafia walked out to start the show. Kurt Angle talked about how Bobby Lashley “crossed the boss” last week and how it wasn’t good for anyone. He said that there was an agreement between himself and Lashley, but Lashley broke that agreement. Angle called out Lashley and Lashley walked out. Lashley confirmed they had an agreement, but said the Mafia was no longer helping the company and just stealing titles from people. He added that Angle and the Mafia couldn’t buy him. Angle said Lashley was stupid and that the Mafia make up 75% of the payroll in TNA. Lashley said he came out to make Angle an offer he can’t refuse. Before he gets to it, Mick Foley walks out and thanks Lashley for helping him out last week. Foley then proposes a match featuring Kurt Angle and Kevin Nash vs. Lashley and himself.
