Eric Young, Tommy Dreamer, and Alisha Edwards Segment
Eric Young: What you’re looking at is a world class man, a world class athlete, a world class professional wrestler, and most importantly, a world class maniac. Now, Rich Swann. At Slammiversary, you pinned me. You beat me and I had to take immediate action. And what you didn’t realize is, you started the ball rolling, the ball rolled right over you and then the ball rolled right over Eddie Edwards. And the funniest thing to me, is everyone thinks that this wasn’t by design. I told you this was by design. And what you’re looking at, was 100% inevitable.
Alisha Edwards: So, you’re standing here, as a world champion, to some people. But to me, you’re nothing but a coward. A coward that came back to IMAPCT, to make a statement, but instead you decided to injure people. You started with Swann and then you made your way to my husband. I don’t know if you know anything about, Eddie, but Eddie is gonna come back and take what belongs to him. Woah, newsflash, EY, I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen it all. Broken friendships, Eddie almost losing his eye to a baseball bat, and even a douchebag that tried to ruin my marriage. But guess what? I wasn’t afraid of them and I’m not afraid of you. But you want to know something? Eddie, he’s a fighter. And I know for damn sure, it’s only a matter of time until he comes back, whoops your ass, and takes that title from you. You want to know something? There’s one last thing. Let’s make this a little personal, right? We have a little one at home, and because of you, he can’t even hold her, he can’t even take her on walks. Because of you, that’s my family, and that’s everything.
Eric Young: I don’t care.
– Alisha Edwards slaps Eric Young in the face. Young gets Edwards in position for The Spike PileDriver. Tommy Dreamer hits Young with a kendo stick.
Tommy Dreamer: I would be a hypocrite for what i’ve done, and pile driven women in my career, but you don’t know the ramifications or having to wake up next to somebody who has pain in their body for something that you did. This woman is like my family, so is her husband, so is Rich Swann. You want to know why? Because when you left this company, there was men and women that decided to stay, and gave you a home, a place for you to come. And you want to come back here and win the title like that?
You are one hell of a wrestler, but you’re a piece of shit scumbag, that wants to injure guys, and take out their livelihoods. EY, come and do something that somebody’s been saying they’ve been doing for a long time. Take me out, end my damn career. I got some stroke with this company. Me and you, tonight. It ain’t about that title. End my career. Any type of match you want, Extreme Rules, Old School Rules, Hardcore, I don’t give a crap. But i’d be damned if you touch her or injure another person in this company. Come on, EY.
Eric Young: I got an answer for you, you’re gonna be under the pile with the rest of them. You made your last mistake, Dreamer. You’re a punk, her husband is a punk, Rich Swann is a punk. This place belongs to me. ME !!! Do something about it. I’ll see you tonight.
