Backstage, Bully Ray is getting in Jeremy Borash’s face saying he knows he intimidates people. JB asks why Tommy Dreamer is acting out recently. Ray said JB and everyone else is on a need to know basis. He talks about how he could easily beat JB right now “because he can.” Ray said AJ Styles embodies everything he hates about modern day pro wrestlers. He said a real wrestler drinks whiskey, listens to rock and roll and chase women. Ray pushes JB away and said he powerbomed AJ off the entrance ramp because he wanted to. He promises to take out AJ once again and then focus on his friends in Fortune. Ray threatens to visit AJ’s “redneck house” to do bad things with his wife.
