"TNA is the guys who come in here and risk their lives on scaffolds and wires"
Samoa Joe: "They just gave me a live mic on a pay-per-view. So, if nobody minds, I'd like to get a few things off my chest. #1, we have two types of wrestlers here. We have the TNA die-hards who come here and entertain and bust their ass for the fans every night of the week, and we got 'superstars' who think they can come and do whatever they want however they want. We have 'superstars', who not only screw us - the hard working wrestlers - in TNA, but they screw each and every fan who paid to see them, no matter how old they are.

So lemme make this real simple, let me explain TNA to you. TNA is the Motor City Machine Guns coming down here and busting their ass, trying to get a break in this business. TNA is Black Machismo doing his damndest to entertain every single person in this building, and showing us what's up. TNA is Samoa Joe coming in here and doing what he does best, wrestle and be the best damn professional wrestler in the world. TNA is a bunch of hard working, young athletes who are looking to change the wrestling world, guys who held down this business while others profiteer from it. TNA is the guys who come in here and risk their lives on scaffolds and wires, while other people show up and pad their pensions. So I'll tell you what, Scott Hall - *chico* - I'll tell you what. Kiss my ass, you're a punk.

[schaut jemanden ringside an] Are you mad? Go ahead, fire me, I don't care. [wendet sich wieder ans Publikum] So tonight, I went in that locker room, and they said 'we called everybody in the world trying to get you a new partner', and I said ‘No, we don't need anybody else. We got everybody we need in the back right now'. So I walked in the back, and I said hey, who wants to be in the main event tonight? Who wants to go get into a fight? And EVERY ONE of the X-Division wrestlers stood up! I walked in the back and asked who wanted to get into a fight, and every single young wrestler whose first TV contract was through TNA stood up and said 'ME'.

But one in particular, bloodied, beaten, battered, bruised, overlooked by everybody in the world said 'Joe, please give me the shot'. So without further ado, I announce my partner: A man that will show up, a man that will be here, and do what he needs to do, a man who is ready for a fight. A man who will be a man, even when he's an old man. Showtime Eric Young, get out here let's kick some ass!"
- Samoa Joe wurde vom TNA-Management hier beauftragt mit einer Promo die No-Show von seinem und Kevin Nashs vorgesehenem Partner Scott Hall zu erklären und damit die Verärgerung der Zuschauer über Halls Abwesenheit abzufedern. Die Generalabrechnung mit den älteren Stars der Liga, die dann daraus wurde, war aber nicht im Sinne der Liga - und offensichtlich auch nicht im Sinne von Nash, der sich von einigen Spitzen Joes deutlich angesprochen fühlen musste. Es kam später dann auch zu einem Backstage-Streit zwischen Joe und Nash, die sich dabei auch gegenseitig schubsten. Joe entschuldigte sich am nächsten Tag vor dem versammelten TNA-Roster dafür, wie die Promo ausgeartet war.
