After the match, Kurt Angle walked to the ring and beat the crap out of the Motor City Machine Guns.

IN THE RING

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & Kevin Nash: Kevin Nash said somebody paid for his airline ticket to Bound For Glory and keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Nash said that it’s been 10 months since Samoa Joe disrespected him and Scott Hall.

IN THE RING
TNA World Heavyweight champion Sting + A.J. Styles: Sting said it’s supposed to be Samoa Joe standing here as the TNA champion, and admitted that Joe was the better wrestler at Bound For Glory. Sting said the old man bit off a little more than he could chew. Sting said that Joe had the match won ten minutes in but Joe chose to humiliate Sting instead. Sting said it was because of Joe’s disrespect that he (Sting) is the champion right now. Sting said after the PPV he went backstage and there was a group of guys who shook his hand, and a group who didn’t shake his hand – and A.J. Styles was one of the guys who didn’t shake his hand. A.J. Styles came out to the ring and said he’s been friends with Samoa Joe for a long time. Styles said if Sting listened to what people said then he would get more respect. Styles said the reason Sting didn’t guy respect in the dressing room is because he didn’t show respect. Styles said he was working his ass off making money for TNA, while Sting is at home spending it. Styles said he was away from his wife, who was basically a single mother, while Sting was coaching his son’s football team. Styles said in 2002 it was guys like Low Ki & Christopher Daniels who laid the foundation for TNA. Styles said he and Samoa Joe are still laying bricks on TNA, the house that they helped build on their blood, their sweat, and their tears. Styles said if Sting doesn’t like it that he should leave. Sting said that Styles told him before that he didn’t like how his dad raised him, but if he keeps making these decisions he will turn out just like his dad. Styles slapped Sting accross the face twice and they started to fight and had to be seperated by TNA security.
