IN RING SEGMENT
Hulk Hogan + Kurt Angle + Sting: Hulk Hogan ripped a fans sign, that’s not nice. He said he has the power and The Network have accepted the offer that Flair offered Sting. September 15th Sting versus Ric Flair! Why is the match not on PPV? If Stings wins he has to get back in the ring and face him. He said the network needs to bow down to Hulk Hogan, because the only way he gets him is when he’s good and ready and when he says so. Kurt Angle came out. Hulk Hogan said he’s sad to see what Dixie Carter said and lied to him, the place was a mess before he came, Hogan said the only bacteria left is to get rid of Sting and cut the cancer. Kurt Angle said he wants to remove the youngsters but will add a veteran and said tonight’s its Stings rematch tonight for the TNA title. Sting came out, he said he will accept the match, his plan will be to win the title, beat Flair then onto Hulkamania!
