We are back with Tom Lawlor. Tom is asked to explain why he did what he did to his friends. Tom says friend is an interesting choice of words. Most friendships are mutually beneficial to both parties. Tom says his friendship with the Von Erichs only benefitted them. It was his war with Contra and he brought the Von Erichs in. The Von Erichs made it all about themselves when it should be about him.

Tom is asked if he is loyal to Contra. Tom says the only thing he hates more than the Von Erichs is Contra. His loyalty lies with one person and you are looking at him. There is one man on this Earth who deserves his loyalty and it is himself.

Tom is asked about his plans in MLW. Tom refuses to answer the question and tell people his plans. He has been looked over for opportunities. He could reform Team Filthy. He could do whatever he wants. There is nothing that he cannot do right now.

Tom tells them to focus on the most important thing in MLW. Look into his eyes and let him know exactly how much pain you are willing to feel.
