-We get a video recap of last week’s show.
-Tenay and West welcome us to the show. They discuss last week’s show and hype Sting vs. Samoa Joe, which at one time was set to be an NWA Title feud because they had never faced.
-They run down the card for tonight’s show.
-Team 3D makes their way to the ring with their spiffy new TNA Tag Team Titles. Ray says that the Steiner’s want to talk with them. Well, they are here so come on out. They make their way out and Tenay puts over the history of both teams. Ray says before they say anything that 3D says it is an honor to be in the ring with one of the greatest teams of all time. If it wasn’t for the Steiner’s 3D wouldn’t be here today. He tells the Impact Zone to give them a standing ovation. Scott calls him a fat ass and says they know they were great. He wants to talk about the lack of legacy for 3D. They were WWE champs, but they didn’t beat anyone. You say you were WCW champs, we have an issue with that. We were the first and we never saw you on that roster. I never saw you in a WCW ring. And then there is ECW, see, when we were champs we traveled the world. We went to Japan in front of 69,000 people. We won the IWGP tag titles. We won title in Korea in front of 170,000 people. You never left the bingo hall. I don’t have a problem with you being ECW champs, but you were not world champions. We know it and you know it, especially by the checks you got. We have a legacy, you beat no one. Rick says they beat the Warriors, Horsemen, Samoan Swat Team, Outsiders, Luger and Sting, Midnight Express, Freebirds, Doom, Harlem Heat, Rock and Roll Express. He has a list a mile long. Scott says they will all be in the Hall of Fame and they beat them all. Ray says they shouldn’t be pissed they respect them. 3D is old school and they are the FN Steiner’s and they respect that. 3D respects and likes them. Scott says their legacy means shit. Devon says he isn’t done yet. They showed respect and put them on a pedestal. They were a great team, in their era, but they have NEVER beat 3D. Scott says at Slammiversary, if they have the balls, put up the titles. Ray agrees. He hopes they kick their asses, because they want the world to see it because they will take it and will beat them on the same night! Testify~!
