The Main Event Mafia (Sting & Kurt Angle & Kevin Nash & Booker T & Sharmell + Scott Steiner) + Samoa Joe (and his troops) + Christian Cage: Kurt Angle introduced the newest member of the Main Event Mafia – their official hitman – “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner! Steiner said he’s been home rehabing his knee and watching the punks in TNA disrespecting the people who paved the way for them to have jobs. Steiner said the M.E.M. was the greatest group of champions ever assembled in wrestling. Steiner went on a rant and said before he came to TNA he had never heard of any of those punks. Steiner insulted the “punk” saying nobody knows who A.J. Styles & Samoa Joe were. Steiner said the stars of the Main Event Mafia are on the marquee. Steiner promised to kick their ass and look good doing it. Samoa Joe came out flanked by some of his new generation troops. Joe said if they could understand half of what Steiner said they might be offended. Joe talked about their accomplishments like Ultimate-X and Lethal Lockdown. Joe vowed to kick Kevin Nash’s ass at Turning Point and promised to choke-out Scott Steiner tonight. Joe introduced their new soldier – Christian Cage! Cage came out and made it clear that he is not going to pick a side but doesn’t mind helping the younger generation. Cage said the Main Event Mafia won’t talk any trash about him. Cage promised to beat and embarrass Booker T at Turning Point on way to capturing the Legend’s title. Booker T fired back with some threats for Cage using his mixed up foreign accent.

Foley mentioned the US Election (which was cool because it was taped before the election) and referred to A.J.

Styles being thrown out of the house by his father, and Styles nearly snapped.
