X-DIVISION MATCH

IN THE RING
Mick Foley + Abyss: Mick Foley came out wearing a cardboard mask and sat down in a lazyboy chair in the middle of the ring. Foley said he wrestled for three years under a mask (as Mankind) until he found out they were masked produced and anybody could buy one and pretend to Mick Foley – anybody, including Chris Parks (Abyss). Foley took the mask off and tossed it aside. Foley hyped his match with Abyss at Bound For Glory, where Dr. Stevie will be the guest referee. Foley said Abyss may be a blatant Mick Foley knockoff, but as far as Mick Foley knockoffs go he is pretty good. Foley showed some of Abyss’s greatest hits; 1) Abyss with scary manager Father James Mitchell – – 2) Abyss pouring out a bag of tacks – – 3) Abyss going through a flaming table. Foley made a point of saying that he did all of that stuff before Abyss. Foley was about to show another clip when Abyss showed up to confront him in the ring! Abyss pushed Foley over in the lazyboy and started choking him with the barbed wire bat. Foley told Abyss to look at the screen, where Abyss saw Dr. Stevie holding Lauren Brooks hostage somewhere backstage. Lauren was whining, and Foley told Abyss to run to her and not waste his time. You couldn’t really see Lauren’s face, so I’m guessing it’s really Daffney. Abyss ran backstage to search for, and rescue, his girlfriend Lauren!

BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW
Jeremy Borash & Homicide: Homicide said he stole SUICIDE’s outfit and said SUICIDE was one ugly sucker. Homicide said he knows SUICIDE’s secret, he knows who SUICIDE really is, and he knew who it was all along. TNA security showed up and dragged the suspended Homicide out of the building..
