Ted McNaler interviews Michael Hayes. Hayes says he can have any match he wants, but first, he wants to congratulate every single person who got to witness the one-legged man win the butt-kicking contest. He is interrupted by Adam Revolver & Shannon the Dude. Revolver says they made a great team. Hayes says he knows what he is doing and he is not safe from having to face him. He only picked him, because he's effective. Shannon says everyone just wants to know if he's facing him for the World Radio Heavyweight Title. Justin Smooth comes out and says Hayes is not a hero, he is a coward. He also says he is coming after Tony Gunn for taking out his man, Big Jon. He also says he wants a shot at Revolver and that title around his waist. Dean Hill comes out and says he couldn't be here for War Games, but saw what happened. Smooth did get cheated, but he also pinned the Heavyweight Champion during that match. Tonight, Smooth will get a shot against Revolver in the main event! He wants to know Hayes' choice for a match, but Hayes says he was used as a puppet the first time around, and now he's pulling the strings and will let Dean know when he's ready.
