JB is backstage with Madison Rayne, Karen Jarrett, and Gail Kim. Jarrett says tonight Kim will bring the belt home. Karen says Kim is a role model, and represent the company correctly. She says she looks like what a Knockout should. Gail says she's never been more ready for a match in her life. Karen says she doesn't need any help so she'll be on her own, and she wants all the other girls in the back to see how it's done. This leads us right into a video package showing recent events between Velvet Sky and Gail Kim leading into this match.
