Rich Swann, Eric Young, and Scott D’Amore Segment
Rich Swann: Now, I know I was supposed to do this in the office, but I think the whole entire world deserves to see what i’m about to say. So, if I could respectively ask Scott D’Amore to come to this ring, right now? Look, I know we were supposed to talk about this in the office, but this ring right here, baby, this ring is my home, so we’ll have the discussion right here, baby. You know, I had to come to this ring and I had to do the hardest thing i’ve ever had to do in my life, that was to give up something that you love, something that the boys and the girls in the back love, something that I love, and that’s professional wrestling. And I had to retire. As i’m sitting at home rehabilitating, watching IMPACT every week, lo and behold, the very guy that tries to change my trajectory of my career, not only that, tried to ruin my life, becomes the IMPACT World Champion. I know you care, and I know you got your concerns, Scott, but what i’m asking you is to let me get back in this ring and fight Eric Young.
Scott D’Amore: Look, Rich, I’ve got nothing but respect for you. And just like every wrestling fan out there, Rich, I’d like nothing more than to see you compete in this ring. But, Rich, an athlete has to be honest with themselves. And when they can’t, someone’s got to be responsible. And I talked to your doctors, Rich. I know you want to be in here, but the fact is, Rich, you’re not medically cleared. The doctor says you’re not ready for physical contact.
Rich Swann: Look, i’ll be ready by October 24th, i’ll be ready by Bound For Glory. Look, I’m the only person in this damn company that has pinned Eric Young. I pinned him at Slammiversary, that means that I deserve this shot. I’m the next in line.
Scott D’Amore: Rich, I love your fighting spirit. And I know you never say die. Rich, when you were in a neck collar at the hospital, I was right there at your side the whole time because I have mad respect for you. And I know how much you want to compete, and you did beat Eric Young at Slammiversary, and that was amazing. And you should be next in line, Rich, but sometimes things don’t quite go right. And, Rich, the fact is, if right now in your condition I put you in a match with Eric Young, what you might be isn’t next in line, what you might be is crippled.
Rich Swann: You know, you might be right, man. What I want you to do, though, is put yourself in my shoes. Come on, Scott, put yourself in my shoes. You were a competitor once, right? You know that if you had the opportunity after everything that has happened, to fight and claw, and get a chance, you know you would take it. That’s why you’re still in this business, to give guys like me the opportunity, to give guys like me the chance. That son of a bitch not only tried to ruin my career, and end it, he tried to change my life. And I don’t give a damn if I end up crippled, all I want is Eric Young. I’m from Baltimore, Maryland, where you have to grow up with the heart of a lion, and the fight of a fire breathing dragon. And, right now, what i’m doing is begging you, because if I don’t have this, you might as well take me behind the barn like i’m an old animal, and put me down, because I ain’t gonna have nothing if I don’t have this. Scott, so please, let me be Bound For Glory.
Scott D’Amore: Look, Rich, I appreciate where you’re coming from.
– Eric Young shoves down Scott D’Amore. Swann with a Flying Clothesline. Swann is raining down haymakers. Young exits the ring. Young says that Swann made a mistake. Don’t make Young sign Swann’s death warrant at Bound For Glory.
Scott D’Amore: Listen, Rich. You should listen to this too, Eric. Because before I was so rudely interrupted, what I was about to say was, I heard your words and they hit me, right here. And the fact is, you know the risk, and I see that fire. So, Rich, get ready, because October 24th, you should take this piece of shit out.
