Report by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
Impact opens up with Kurt Angle talking about what went down with Lashley and company last week. He says he won’t allow that to go down on his watch and calls Lashley out to the ring. Lashley comes out and Angle says that he knows Lashley isn’t happy with him right now because he told Kenny King and MVP to take the night off so they can’t manipulate the World Title picture anymore. Angle says that Lashley is REQUIRED to defend the World Title and he wants to know why Lashley turned down Roode’s rematch challenge.
Lashley says that Roode already had a shot at HIS title and then he asks Kurt if HE wants a shot and gets in his face! Lashley and Angle stare each other down as the fans chant for Angle. Angle says that one day he will face Lashley and Lashley will regret that day for the rest of his life. He says that today is not the day but he will get Lashley a number one contender. Angle confirms the #1 Contenders 4-Way for later tonight and then introduces the contenders as they come out one-by-one: Eric Young, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, and Jeff Hardy!
Angle says that he knows Lashley has defended his title against all of these men but the winner of the match tonight will face Lashley for the title. Angle wishes them all luck as Lashley looks none too happy.
