There was an issue over the weekend between Justin Credible and Matt Striker following their match for the New York Wrestling Connection in Deer Park, LI. The two were working a scientific match with the angle being that if Credible beat Striker (the heel in their storyline) clean, he could have a hardcore match at the 11/30 return. After losing, Striker nailed Credible and legitimately busted him open hardway. Backstage, Striker tried to apologize but Credible cursed him out in the locker room and stormed off.
