IN RING SEGMENT
Mr. Anderson & Professor Schwartz + Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff + Rob Van Dam + TNA World Heavyweight Champion Sting: A whiteboard was set up in the ring. Mr. Anderson came out with his professor who was the number one maths magician in the state of Wisconsin where Anderson was studying to be a asshole. Mr. Anderson explained on the whiteboard that he went to a double pin-fall and has a rematch clause which equals a title shot. The professor agreed. Before he left, Anderson said his school rush Mary Kate Batalski said he the professor called him a homosexual, the professor who looked really guilty said no. Anderson said he was going to give something a teacher should remember his student by and the reason why he asked? The professor asked because you are a asshole Anderson screamed BINGO and gave him a mic-check! Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff came out. Eric question Hulk what he sees in Anderson, he is nothing better than a loud and backstabbing person, he also thinks the network will not like what he has doe. Hulk said he enjoyed this stuff with the professor but Anderson has decided to take the long hard route and because of this will not get a title shot. Anderson said it is in his contract, but Hogan said a Dixie Carter signed contract which means nothing and shove it up his ass. Hogan said Anderson’s wrestling RVD again tonight, and if he beats him tonight, he’ll get his rematch. Anderson said RVD isn’t even in his league, and Hogan says we’ll find out tonight. RVD says that this is wrestling, and when you talk smack about somebody, their music plays and they come out for some smack talk. He asks Anderson if he has any funny words, RVD tells Hogan he’s not sure why he signed with TNA, he was sitting home burnt out on politics, Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff and Dixie all phoned him but it was Hogan’s call which persuaded him, and he asked if he just brought RVD in to screw him over. Sting’s music hit and he said the network called him and he will be the special guest enforcer, so its SHOWTIME FOLKS!

They are the ones to call the shots because they are the best thing going today..woooo. Matt Hardy took the mic and said twelve years himself and Bully-Ray changed the business, they were young and had ambition’s but were backstabbed by the politics backstage and now in TNA they will do what happened to them right into the faces of Fortune. Bully-Ray took the mic and asked A.J. Styles to come out? Of course he wasn’t there and last week sent a message, and he did because he can.
