Tenay and Taz run down some of the highlights of the PPV thus far, to kill a bit more time. They show Storm beating Ray, and Devon returning to win the TNA TV Title. They then turn their attention to the main event, that will see Sting taking on Bobby Roode in a No Holds Barred match. Taz says something about this match being Falls Count Anywhere, but I don't think I've heard that anywhere.
Tenay sends things backstage to JB, who is standing alongside Sting. JB has another Twitter question for the Stinger. He asks what's the difference between being a wrestler, and being the boss. Sting says he's tired of talking, Twittering, Facebooking, and it's time to start wrestling. Sting says he feels like a wrestler before making his way out of the interview area.
