Franchise with James Mitchell and Abyss. They talk about the new guy, Mitchell doesn’t care and they better not try to leap frog Abyss for a title shot. Mitchell says Sabu uses the barbed wire because that s the one thing Abyss is afraid of. Even the word scares Abyss. Mitchell had him in therapy to overcome it but Sabu ruined it all. Mitchell is glad he did, because after tonight there will be no more Sabu. Mitchell has an egg with a turban on it to represent Sabu, Abyss crushes it.

They hype the acquisition as well as Monty vs. Hardy.

They go to the locker room and here is the new guy…he walks…

Lights go out…count down…CHRISTIAN CAGE! He has the swank jacket as well!

Christian says he had a lot of questions asked to him this week. Were the rumors true, and if so why? He tells us this, he didn’t come here to see the same guy say the same thing week after week. JJ and AMW are watching backstage. He isn’t here to see people pull things out of other men’s asses. He also didn’t get fired…and another rumor. About him getting low-balled. He was offered a lot of money to stay…but he came to TNA is the same reason everyone is here right now. The reason he is here is because he loves WRESTLING. You know, I have been known for some jokes, pull a rib…but I don’t want anyone to ever forget that I am the greatest all around performer today. It’s like this. I am tired of egos and politics. I want to see guys busting their asses, wrestling reinvented. I watched Impact last night, a little plug for you. He remembers when there were 2 companies. There was an old one, and a new cutting edge one where he was. Now…it is EXACTLY the same. This is something I want to be a part of. I want to be the biggest piece of this puzzle. Jeff Jarrett, never wear white pants after labor day. Also, I came to take the one thing that alluded me my whole career…the NWA TITLE. Everyone stand up, take notice that I am here…and I will fulfill my destiny…because THAT’S…HOW…I…ROLL!

Here comes Coach D’Amore with Roode. Coach is happy to see Christian here. No one is happier than him. Think about the times they shared in New Brunswick. They share some good times, and also how Stu stretched Adam. Nice. Coach says they have bigger things ahead of them. He heard what he said, and hey everyone wants to be champ. Coach says Christian needs to align himself with the “right people.” Coach says Petey will win the X Title and they will rule with JJ and AMW. With Christian joining them, they will rule TNA…together. Christian says that sounds good, but he has a question. Roode stops him and says the Coach is offering him everything. Roode say she has a chance to be a chance to be a part of something big. It’s simple “Captain Charisma,” you’re either or against us. Roode says they want an answer. Coach says we don’t need an answer right now. You have a little time but they need an answer tonight. He gives Christian a Team Canada shirt. Christian says it’s the right size, but he needs some time to see if it fits.

Franchise is with Monty. He says Monty may have gotten leap frogged. Monty says this is not funny. Christian Cage, you wreak, but not of awesomeness and if you roll into the Serengeti all that will roll out is your head. Cage, Hardy, I have worked too hard to come this far. I am going major game hunting, and it starts with Hardy. The only thing you 2 will acquire is the POOOOOOOOOUNCE…PERIOD!
