Zema Ion is backstage with Christy Hemme. He seems a little intimidated by the men in the ring against him tonight. He says a lot of people don't see him winning this match, but tonight he's proving it to himself. Zema says he'll be damned if anyone keeps him from getting what he wants. This leads into a quick promo for the Ultimate X match.
- As the construction of the Ultimate X structure continues, JB and Tenay try to kill time, talking about what may be running through the heads of the competitors going into the match tonight.
