After putting over Xavier, Daniels turns his attention to Samoa Joe, but is interrupted by Simply Luscious, telling him to stop shaking hands. Joe tells Daniels that even though the thinks of him as an “official member”, he’s only because they pay him to beat people up, not to break the Code of Honor, and tonight his only concern is Homicide, who jumped his friend Steve Corino at All-Star Extravaganza and injured his eye. Daniels tells him they can discuss it later and tries to walk off, but is interrupted by The Ring Crew Express, demanding to know when they are going to get their shot at the ROH Tag Team Championship. After laughing in their faces, Daniels yells at them for interrupting The Prophecy, and told Joe he’s got a job tonight: beating the Ring Crew Express within an inch of their lives.
