IN RING SEGMENT
Fortune ( Robert Roode & James Storm & Kazarian) & Christopher Daniels) + Ric Flair & Immortal ( Abyss & Matt Hardy & Bully-Ray) + Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff: Daniels started of iMPACT by absorbing the “welcome back” chants but said throughout his time in TNA he has left the company so many times he feels there is a revolving door with his name on it. Daniels said he was here for his brother A.J. Styles and they promised to have each other’s back no matter what their problems are. He saw what Bully-Ray did three weeks ago and realised it was time to come back to TNA. He offered his devotion to A.J. and Fortune and to be the 4th man in lethal Lockdown with them. Immortal’s music hit and they came out. Ric Flair said he passed the point of no return, and said as god he doesn’t even know who Daniels is. Coming and going where? He pointed at his Hall Of Fame Ring saying Daniels doesn’t have that. Flair said he hopes A.J. is at home never walking again and said it’s wrestling no time for crying and kissing ass. He called Daniels a fly by night and told him to leave TNA now, a chance because if not at Lethal Lockdown someone will be hurt and it won’t be him because he suffered airplane crashes. Daniels told “god” to shove his offer up his ass. Flair goes he doesn’t have a contract to wrestle and told him to leave the house Flair built. Daniels said “the network” wanted him here. Hulk Hogan music hit and he came out with Eric Bischoff. Hulk Hogan said he is in control and doesn’t have a problem with Daniels on TV, so if he wants a contract he will get one and said he is in the Lockdown match, and tonight “superhero Daniels” will face Bully-Ray tonight. Bully-Ray told Daniels he should have listened to Flair’s advice and left TNA because he was the guy who crippled A.J. Styles. Bully-Ray threatened to do the same to Daniels but said he had balls, but not brains because he ends careers and is the biggest “mother effer on the block. Bully Ray told Daniels to put on some mascara, paint his finger nails go back to California and go watch Oprah. Daniels got pissed and then hit Ray and a brawl ensured! Fortune cleared the ring as security prevented Immortal coming in.
