Daniels knows a way that TNA can make it up to them. Fact: tonight, Bad Influence beat Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez. Fact: Eric Young and Joe Pancake aren’t a tag team, but a fisherman and a lawyer, so their win shouldn’t count. And third, the company like to throw curveballs and throw people into the match at the last minute, and based on their pristine record, Bad Influence should be added to the card tonight.
BI is interrupted by Eric Young who makes his way to the ring wearing trunks and a backwards baseball cap. Young tells BI that he’s not a trouble maker. He doesn’t feel bad, he doesn’t want a match, he’s already beaten them once tonight. Young says he’s here on official, scientific business. He’s a scientist. BI did something earlier, they created a monster. Everyone here and EY know, and BI are the only two that don’t realize that they should run. Young tells them to run. Daniels shake Young’s hand, then attacks while he’s shaking Kaz’s hand. They stop when Abyss’ music hits, and the monster returns.
Abyss heads into the ring and takes out both Daniels and Kaz with clotheslines. Abyss hits the black hole slam on Daniels. Abyss misses a punch on Kaz, but connects with another black hole slam. Abyss stares down Young, and walks over to him in the corner. Eric begs off, but Abyss offers his hand. Abyss helps Young to his feet and smiles. Abyss poses for the fans before Tenay sends it to the back.
JB is backstage and he says they’re reading the feedback on Twitter as it comes in. He introduces his guests, James Storm and Gunner. Gunner says BroMans earned their title shot tonight. But he tells them not to worry about their tan, gym, their girl, or dancing. They call themselves the BroMans, but Gunner sees people who aren’t ready. Storm says BroMans were lucky, but they should be good. Storm tells BroMans that he’s sorry about their damn luck.
