Kurt says he is not leaving but he is saying that he will kick ass in 2014. He says he is challenging him to one more match. Roode explodes about the challenge and says no. Roode says he has nothing else to prove to anyone. He has beaten that he is better than Angle and Kurt is not hall of fame worthy. Roode is about to leave but hesitates and says unless on one term. He says if Angle loses, then he will have to leave and never accepts a TNA HOF ceremony. Angle says it will be a genesis but Angle has a stipulation as well. He wants the match in a steel cage.
