Bully Ray starts us off by coming out to the ring with his Twittah Machine to proclaim himself the leader of the Bully Nation. Bubba says he learned something from Joseph Park, and that’s that if there’s enough evidence, it means someone’s guilty, and all the evidence is pointing right at James Storm. He’s going to prove that Storm is behind Aces & Eights, but first he’s going to beat him and then go on to Hardcore Justice and win there too and get 20 points. He tells the crowd to stop booing because they know he’s right, but Storm comes out to interrupt Bubba’s monologue. He says that he didn’t hear one fact come out of Bubba’s mouth, and says he’s tired of people pointing fingers at him and not taking him at his word. He’ll say it again: he’s had nothing to do with these attacks because he’s more worried about winning the Bound For Glory Series, then going on to Bound For Glory to regain his title.
Bubba’s got him all riled up, and where he’s from, you kick the crap out of people who cross the line, so what he’s going to do now is draw a line and give Bubba until the count of three because he’s going to cross that line and knock Bubba out. Bubba turns his hat around and tells Storm to start counting, but Bubba steps out of the ring at 3, so Storm tells him to take the message backstage and tell anyone who doesn’t believe him that they can come out and fight him.
Suddenly, Aces & Eights shows up on the ImpactTron, sitting at a card table with a bunch of beers to tell the assholes (their word, not mine) that they found out that Sting gave them an open invitation to show up tonight. That’s a dangerous thing to do, but they’ll show up tonight and do things on their terms. Bubba says that this proves Storm’s involved, and walks off while screaming at Storm.
Bound For Glory Series: Bully Ray vs James Storm
Bubba starts mouthing off and accusing Storm of being part of Aces & Eights before even making contact, and keeps ducking out between the ropes every time Storm tries to grab him, but finally they make contact and have a brief exchange before Bubba dumps Storm out to the floor and we go to commercial.
We’re back, and Storm rolls out of the way of an elbowdrop from Bully Ray. Bubba yanks Storm down by the hair and then gets a leglock on Storm and grapevines the leg to try for the submission win. Storm reverses to a heel hook of his own, but Bubba makes it to the ropes and takes Storm down, then stands over him and drives fists into his skull. Bubba comes off the ropes for a big splash, but Storm rolls out of the way and starts firing back with right hands, a facebuster, and a running neckbreaker. Storm with a back bodydrop and then charges Bubba, but gets caught with a Rock Bottom for 2. Bubba goes for the Bubba Bomb, but Storm fights his way out and goes up top. Bubba hits a nasty chop and tries to superplex Storm, but Storm shoves him off. Storm goes for an elbowdrop, but Bubba moves out of the way and hits the Bubba Bomb, but only gets 2. Bubba goes to the second rope, but misses a back senton. Storm hits a Codebreaker and sets up for the Last Call, but Bubba pulls the referee in his way. Storm stops short, but gets a rollup for 2. Bubba quickly recovers himself and hits the Bubba Cutter for the win.
Winner: Bully Ray
Bubba stalks Storm with the chain, but Aces & Eights pops up on screen and congratulates them on putting on a good show, then says that they’ll see Bubba this Sunday.
