A new interviewer is backstage with BroMans, he asks them how it feels to be new champions. Robbie says they’re going this Thursday to Salt Lake City, and the party is going to continue. Jesse, Robbie and Mr. Olympia all put on goggles, then celebrate by spraying protein drinks all over each other.
JB is backstage and he recaps Kurt Angle declining joining the TNA Hall of Fame, then introduces Bobby Roode. Roode says what a shocker. Angle says he hasn’t live up to the standards of a Hall of Famer. That’s partially true, but what Roode said on Impact was true, that Roode is more deserving of an induction than Angle. Roode is in Angle’s head, because of that, and because he made Angle tap out. At Bound for Glory, Roode is going to prove that he’s a better wrestler, and he’s Hall of Fame bound, and he’s going to make Angle tap out, because it pays to be Roode. This leads into a video package highlighting the events over the past few weeks that led up to this match.
