Abyss comes to the ring and we take a look back at what Mick Foley did to Abyss last week on Impact. Abyss says the doctors have said that he cannot compete tonight but he says that he needs answers and he wants Mick Foley to give him those answers.
Mick’s music plays and he comes to the ring with his barbed wire baseball bat and security. Mick asks Abyss if he said that he owes Abyss answers. Mick points out how much Abyss has taken from him. Mick wants to know what he owes Chris. Does he owe him the twenty-four years of blood, sweat, and tears? Does he owe him for paving the way for guys like Abyss from having a career? Does he owe Abyss for giving him the flannel shirt to continue the hardcore tradition? Mick says that is not going to happen.
Abyss says that he was trying to save Foley against Nash. He says that he did not know what Kevin was going to do to Foley. Abyss says the picture was an accident. He was going to for the barbed wire bat to save Mick. Mick says that it was an accident when Abyss entered his private office. Mick asks if Abyss was invited into the office. Did Mick invite Chris to take his barbed wire bat to mess up his Legends Title match? Mick says that he did not need Abyss’ help and he did not need to be saved. Mick asks if he needed to be saved when he was tossed of Hell in a Cell, when he was in barbed wire in Japan, or when he had his ear ripped off?
Abyss tells Mick that he is . . . was his hero. He says that he idolized Foley and came up in the business to be like Foley. He got into this business because of Foley. Abyss says that he remembered all of the beatings by his father when his mother turned a blind eye and Mick Foley kept him going. Abyss says that Mick repays him by leaving a huge scar on his forehead. Mick says that his actions were a bit extreme and he says that he was hurt too. Mick says that he was in a hospital last week having pieces of a video tape removed from his hand. Mick has a gift for Abyss and it is the caricature of Foley and Borash. Mick says that it is not the original, it is a copy, a cheap imitation. Mick says that if anyone knows about cheap imitations and rip offs, it would be Chris. Foley mentions the Monster’s Ball but when it comes to comparisons between them, Abyss isn’t even in the same league. Foley says that Abyss is like the copy, a wannabe. Foley hits Abyss with the framed caricature and then he leaves the ring.
Abyss chases after Foley and security tries to stop him but Abyss takes care of security and Foley leaves while Abyss choke slams one of them.
