Hogan’s music hit and he went out.

Hulk Hogan + Mr. Anderson + Sting + Immortal ( Bully-Ray & Scott Steiner & Abyss & Gunner): Hulk Hogan said how could someone who was so good be such a coward, he promised to take out Sting on his own terms. Hogan then called Mr. Anderson. Hogan said he is happy to him and said Immortal need Anderson just as vice versa, his cockyness will be slapped away. Mr. Anderson said he is the cockiest guy in TNA, he doesn’t need them because he dominated Sting at Slammiversary. Hogan said Bischoff helped Mr. Anderson and he believes Anderson joining him is more dollars and he owns them a lot ,Mr. Anderson said he owes them shit and takes a victory no matter what and takes all the credit versus Sting at Slammiversray and two weeks from tonight. Suddenly they showed backstage and Sting was beating the crap out of all of Immortal and said he will talk to Hogan and nothings for sure…oh forget it and walked away. The lights when out and Sting appeared and smacked Hogan in the leg with the baseball bat, Anderson bailed and Sting said two weeks, its going to be called Midsummer Nightmare..Nightmare. Sting said he was a Hogan “mark” back in the day and wanted the original Hulk Hogan not Hollywood back. He got some vitamins and stuffed them in Hogan’s mouth and was about to put him in the death lock when Immortal came out. Bully Ray called Sting a nobody not funny and what he is doing to Hogan a disgrace. He said there paths and have never met but tonight will change, he said what Sting did to Bischoff was deplorable, which is a 4 syllable word. Bully-Ray said tonight it will be Sting….versus Scott Steiner, cut the music. Hogan said that was the last time he will embarrass Hogan and tonight he will get revenge.
