MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley (Revolution? The Nation of Revelation? Fuck With Us and We Kill You? You make up a name!) hit the ring. MVP says that he will give us an education. He'll teach us some history. He is a brilliant individual, and due to his brilliance, he put himself into a position where he could bring in his friends and take power. Power was never given by request, power has always been taken, and when you do that, blood must be spilled. He knew that when he cam back to wrestling he would have to change things and not ask for permission. This is all about power, money and respect. He did this on his terms, and he had to become a politician, and he is in control here. You don't have to like it, but you have to accept it. MVP allows King to have the mic. King says when MVP called and laid out the plan, he thought MVP lost his mind. But he was wrong; MVP is a genius. But he takes some credit, their little "exhibition: match was his idea to throw them all off. The King vs. Lashley match? All part of the plan/ MVP cuts him off and says this is all working out perfectly. So then for Lockdown, he called his friend Bobby Lashley. Lashley says that playing the political game isn't his thing, but MVP had the plan, so he trusted him and feels MVP is a visionary. MVP says he may even be a prophet, or a God.
The Wolves now makes their way out to the ring. Richards says that they used to have respect for MVP when he said they were fighting for wrestling and that this was not about the money. What happened to that guy? MVP says he gave them opportunity, and he kept his word to them. They got the chance to be tag team champions and got good contracts on top of it. MVP says they are champions because they got heart, but they did not have the stomach for his plan. Richards says they aren't money-grubbing cowards that forgot who supports them. MVP says he could cut them and send them back to the Indies where they may belong. The Wolves attack, but the numbers game gets to them. Team MVP beats down the tag team champions, as Lashley destroys Edwards with a spear. MVP tosses Richards to the floor. MVP reiterates that this is about power and control, and since he authority was questioned, they need to learn a lesson. Lashley then spears Richards off the ramp through a table.

The numbers game gets to the champion, and Austin Aries arrives and makes the save. Aries is fired up and clears King to the floor. He and Young then low bridge Lashley, so MVP bails.

Aries then challenges MVP to a match tonight so that he can expose him. MVP says he beat him before and will do so again. As for Eric Young, he will be in action later, but MVP will not reveal the opponent at this time.
