At Destination X, while getting out of the limo onto the black and blue carpet, Christian Cage received a telegram from Tomko stating that Tomko was in Japan and would come back if Cage would give him a title shot. Once Tomko returned from Japan, Christian Cage offered Tomko a spot on Team Cage at TNA Lockdown 2007, but Tomko said he wouldn't choose a team until he got a title shot at the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. It ended up being that Jim Cornette came out and said that the main event on TNA impact that night would be one member from Team Cage fighting one member from Team Angle. Whichever team member won, Tomko would go to the team the member was from. It would be Abyss from Team Cage fighting Kurt Angle from Team Angle. In the end, Kurt Angle won by pinfall, but after the match, Tomko signed on to Team Cage instead of Team Angle, making him the final member of Team Cage to fight Team Angle at TNA Lockdown 2007 along with Abyss, A.J.

It would be a match between Samoa Joe and Styles, Jeff Jarrett interfered to become the 5th member of team Angle.

On the following episode of TNA iMPACT!, Tomko took part in Team Cage's brutal exorcism and beatdown of Abyss for being a liability to the team's success after Abyss and Cage failed to win the NWA World Tag Team Championship from Team 3D.

After this loss, Rick Steiner debuted in TNA, and helped Scott beat down Tomko. Tomko remained in what was from then on once again known as Christian's Coalition, once again focused on aiding Cage. Some friction did set in after Cage cost Tomko his May 31, 2007 King of the Mountain qualifying match by distracting him with a chair. Tomko had been placed in the match vs. fellow Coalition member A.J. Styles because original contestant Jeff Jarrett no-showed (due to his wife's death). Christian was able to convince Tomko to continue on as his ally, which later came in handy as Tomko would go on to do much of the brunt work in the Coalition's feud against the returned Abyss and Sting, though he would be twice pinned by Abyss at PPVs after taking a Black Hole Slam each time. However, the Coalition finally avenged these losses with another bloody beatdown of Abyss which also featured the laying-out of Sting on the July 26 iMPACT!

The match was a barbed-wire six sides of steel cage match in which the objective was to make an opponent bleed and pin that opponent. The Coalition was able to lock Sting out for a while, but after he appeared in the ring, Tomko would be the first man busted open. After a long match, Christian would escape the cage, and Styles was pinned by Abyss. At No Surrender 2007 he and AJ Styles won a 10-tag team gauntlet match to win title shots at Bound For Glory.

Styles and Tomko defeated Latin American Exchange on the November 1 edition of iMPACT! to retain the TNA Tag Team title. A.J. and Tomko's success led to some uncertainty within the Coalition, causing Tomko to ask Christian what the chain of command was. Christian said that when he wasn't around, it was A.J. - disappointing Tomko. AJ would go on to make some foolish decisions without Tomko's advice or help, starting with a take-down match against Scott Steiner that night. The last major choice A.J. Styles made for the Coalition was to join forces with Kurt Angle, forming the Angle Alliance at TNA Genesis 2007 by assisting Angle in retaining his TNA World Heavyweight Championship. This plan quickly fell apart, as Christian and Kurt could not cooperate, leaving them to fight over A.J. Styles and Tomko. The tension between Christian and Kurt would make AJ doubt himself, and he'd often turn to Tomko for advice, which Tomko would not give, telling A.J. that he got into this mess himself since he was the one in charge. Tomko's continued distancing of himself from both groups would lead him to separate from the Alliance two weeks before Final Resolution on an episode of iMPACT, stating that from now on he works for Tomko.

The January 10 iMPACT! clarified Tomko's new outlook. While A.J. worried about Christian's wrath in Kurt Angle's dressing room, Tomko explained to him that he's on his own. Later in an interview, Tomko said A.J. got himself into the situation - matter of fact, he created it - and that Tomko knew it was no-win, generally stayed out of it, and now is making his own decisions. That same night, Tomko had his first singles match since becoming independent against an injured (kayfabe) Shark Boy, who he quickly squashed.

Tomko later cost Christian the world title, then reluctantly aligned with Kurt Angle, following A.J.'s example so they could stay partners - with no intention of being a team player to the point of becoming a lapdog again. He has also grown to become frustrated with A.J.'s constant attraction to Karen Angle, claiming it's hurting the team's focus and even exploding on A.J. on an episode of iMPACT.
