In Ring Segment
Storm comes out in jeans, a gray button down, and a lighter striped vest. Video of Storm tapping out to AJ. Storm says last week he asked AJ for a fight, and he brought the fight. There's AJ (in the stands) and I will say to you. I don't know what that move is, but it hurt like hell. But I won't cry over spilt milk, because hell, I'm a beer drinker. What I did sign up for was the Aces & Idiots who jumped me from behind. If you guys wanted a fight, call me, tweet me, hell, I don't care! Yeah, I'm talking to you – to Taz.
Don't touch me, I'll sue ya. Be careful what you wish for too.
It's simple. I know if I call one of you out, all of you will come out. Bring all you want, but I'll take one or two of you out!
Bad Influence out. Daniels says they want to weigh in. They were also victims of A&8's last week. Hogan might have a robust mustache, but he doesn't have the solution to the A&8's problem. However (they get in the ring) the two smartest men in the room have a solution to the problem. A&8's have been playing the numbers game, but the magic number TNA needs is 4. not just any four, I'm talking about Fortune.
Kaz tells AJ that he has to forgive himself for giving them cheap shots last week, because they forgive AJ. The next thing AJ needs to do is walk down the steps, get away from the fart knockers out there, get in the ring and reform Fortune, because it's the right thing to do.
Storm says he can speak for these people and don't want to see them throw anything up, they need to shut the hell up.
Kaz say, no, these people don't concern them, and like these people, Jim, you're irrelevant. Daniels and Kaz attack Storm and back him into a corner. A low blow on Storm, then BI flees. AJ watches, but doesn't move.
A&8's rush the ring. Anderson grabs Storm. They bring a table into the ring. Anderson struggles a bit, then Wes up the ramp and taken out by Joseph! Joseph takes out Garett with a clothesline. Joseph on Anderson over the top rope with a blow. Joseph in and easily beaten down by the rest of A&8's. DOC and Knux ready Joseph, but Bully stops them. Bully in and Devon readies. They 3D Joseph through the table. Bully holds up his belt as A&8's stand across the ring.
In Ring Segment
Video recap of the attack on Joseph. Bully says he told us he wasn't screwing around. I told you we weren't screwing around. Do you know who we are? We are A&8's, the men responsible for the carnage in TNA. The men responsible for taking out everyone of your heroes. Look around, you ain't got no heroes left. No Samoa Joe. No Magnus. No Storm. No Joseph. Nobody! Last week I called out one man.
I called out Hogan. I called out our next victim. Hulk! Dad! Dead old Dad, you have the end of the show to answer our call. I'll say it again. When you ride with A&8's, you never ride alone.
Tenay says Hogan left about an hour before the show started. Taz says Hogan is smart and shouldn't come back here. Keneley talks about Mickie going after Velvet Sky tonight.
Shows Mickie facing Tessmacher, and beating her to become #1 Contender. Mickie is sick and tired of not getting the respect she deserves.

Recapping Sting's involvement in the problems with Hogan. Morgan tells Hogan about all the mistakes he's been making.
In Ring Segment
Morgan to the ring drinking a bottle of water. He grabs a mic harshly and throws his water down hard outside. My issues with Impact has been around one simple issue – mistakes. Made by one man – Hogan. When Hogan took Sting's advice and let Bully into his family. Then he didn't make me #1 contender and Lockdown, but went with Bully. Now, we all know how that turned out. Bully stole the Title and A&8's is stronger than ever. TNA has been imploding around Hogan since. Moving on to Sting, Hogan's best friend for 20+ years, the guy who's had his back from day one, get ejected from TNA altogether and no one has seen or heard from the guy since. Finally, Hardy, in a gallant effort to recapture the Title, but for his trouble gets stretchured from the arena for it.
You can chant his name all night, that's why I'm out here. See Hulk, before you go face to face with Bully, allow me the opportunity to present you the ultimate solution to all your problems. So Hogan, come on down!
Hogan's music finally hits, the fans erupt and out comes the man (Alex says Hogan absolutely doesn't look at him – holding a sign that says, "Hulk Hogan fears Alex Barie" sign). Morgan says that's amazing, but the reason...
The reason he called Hogan out, you're out of horses in the race, you're out of backup, you're delaying what is inevitable, they're going to chew you up and spit you out. There's nobody left on your roster. That being said, allow me to present you with the ultimate solution – Matt Morgan. At the end of the day nobody on this roster wants it like I do. Nobody on this roster has been begging and waiting more than Morgan. Nobody on this roster can eliminate A&8's better than Morgan. I'm your knight in shining armor! I'm your guy! And if given the opportunity, I will take Bully's beach ball sized head, and I will carve a footprint into it into the 5th row! For a small price, of course. Supply in demand these days. I'm all you've got. That being said, I'll handle your Bully situation, and name me the #1 contender and hand me the Title shot at Slammiversary – win, win. Morgan actually cups his ear at the fans.
Hogan says Morgan brought him to the edge. You've got the goods to get it done. You had me believing. To tell the truth, you probably could get the job done, but at the end of the day, with my hopes at an all time high, I was hoping you'd do the right thing. All that backing up from you, that you stole my robe, the verbal abuse from you day after day, I thought you'd actually get it, that we'd been praying for, that you'd be the second coming of The Mania, brother. But ta the end of the day, brother, you've got to do it for all the wrong reasons, for a price. If I was to pick you, to hand it all over to you on a silver platter, it would be a bigger mistake than Bully, brother. I know TNA is in a lot of trouble, and I had a lot to do to getting it where it's at. But I'm going to step into this ring tonight,even if I'm not acapable, and take what's needed to be taken for this company.
(off mic) What about me?
What about you? I'm not going to hand over anything with you! I'm going to do this on my own, and, by the way, I never heard Andre The Giant come out here and whine like a little bitch! Hogan throws down his mic and leaves Morgan in the ring.
Split screen – Mickie and Velvet heading to the ring.
Recap of Hogan verbally taking down Morgan.
Bully says for a second he almost felt bad for Joseph. That was the first 3D in two years. Bully says Hogan has staples, stitches, held together with spit and glue, but I want your word that I'm taking care of my father-in-law myself. You assholes give me your word!
On The Clock

Winner – Velvet Sky (7:28)

Bully says he's done with her, Devon can have her. Bully says that he's the WHC, and Devon is TV Champ, they're the most successful tag team ever, leading the most dominant force of A&8's. He took out Hardy and he might be done for good. I'm going to the ring to look my father-in-law in the eye, deep into his soul, and put the final nail in Hulkamania's coffin.
Brooke is upset about Hogan going out there, she's the one who brought Bully in. It's time for Hogan to face it. Brooke says she had bodyguards, he's alone. Hogan says he's going to prove he's a good man and Brooke can't stop this. Don't work, he will be right back, and loves her.

Bully walks away from Hogan, then back. I'm the last of a dying breed. Your breed. Did you think it would come to this? Did you ever think that I would be standing here? Do you know who I am? I'm Bully Ray. I'm the president of A&8's.
