KNOCKOUTS TAG TEAMMATCH
IN RING SEGMENT (FINAL CONFRONTATION)
Storm said that for the last few weeks,they’ve done a lot of talking. He asks if he remembers the time they were on afifteen hour plane ride to Japanand laughed because they never thought they’d be the World Champion. They’refour time TNA World Tag Team Champions, the longest reigning tag champions inthe history of TNA, travelled all over the world, entertained millions ofpeople, kicked a lot of butt, and drank a lot of beer. Roode said he’s notgoing to pretend that Beer Money never existed. Beer Money was one of thegreatest teams in the history of the business, and being part of it was one ofthe proudest moments in his career in life, but there’s another proud momentthat they probably both remember, which was last year when they put their tagteam aspirations aside and entered the Bound For Glory Series for a shot at theWorld Title. They both wound up in the final four and made it to thesemifinals, but only Roode made it to the finals, and he went on to win thewhole thing. That sent him to Bound For Glory where he challenged for the WorldTitle while Storm sat in the back twiddling his thumbs and drinking his beer.Storm says he remembers doing something: he was sitting their drinking beer andwatching the monitor when Roode got beat. Storm asks if he remembers the nextweek when he beat the guy who beat Roode, in record time no less. Roode said hevaguely remembers it because Storm’s reign was so short that two weeks later,Roode not only beat him for the title, but became the It Factor of professionalwrestling and the leader of the selfish generation. Storm said he’s glad hebrought that up because it was the night Roode hit him in the head with a beerbottle and destroyed the legacy of Beer Money and their friendship. Roode tellsStorm to cut the bulls**t because they were never friends. They hated eachother when they met, and the only reason they were so successful was because oftheir individual passions for the business. All the stuff about hanging outdrinking beer is crap because they hated each other, and from day one, Stormhas been jealous of him. Storm asks what he has to be jealous of, because wherehe comes from, family and friends mean something and you don’t sell them outfor money like Roode did. Storm does this for the love of the sport, and hedoes it for all the fans, and his superkick leg is getting tired from the tripdown memory lane, so no more history class because in three days, they stepinto the cage to kick the crap out of each other in Storm’s hometown ofNashville, in front of his friends and family. Roode says he doesn’t give acrap about Nashville,his hillbilly wife, or his redneck kids. Storm said Roode won’t need luck,he’ll need a damn miracle to walk out of that cage, and Roode says he’s heardStorm’s line a million times and he’s sick of it. He tells Storm to look athim, dammit, and in three days, Storm will be lucky to walk out of that cage,and says that Storm has no luck with his two dead brothers and his dead father.Storm and Roode go nose to nose. WOW that was amazing!
