JB is backstage with Joseph Park. Park is sweating and he says he hopes Sting gets better. The attack on him on Thursday was uncalled for. He says he’s petrified because he’s going in the ring with the man who did that to Sting. He talks about what they did, depriving his rights by taking away his food. He asked Hulk Hogan for this match and he’s going to do his best. He asks JB if he thinks he has a shot at winning. In the end, he has to do what he said he would do. Tonight is about being a man, and he’ll probably get his butt kicked. But he’s going into the ring a man, and he’s coming out one too.
