Back from commercial and Nigel McGuinness is in the ring. He talks about stripping Jay Briscoe of the ROH Title. He says that the title is vacant and the war with SCUM is over. He says Jay Briscoe's run will always be a casualty of that war. He says it wasn't an easy decision to make because you can't take away what Jay's achieved as champion.
He says he is faced with the decision of making a new ROH World Champion. He talks about the tournament and where the final will take place. He says now that SCUM is gone, they can concentrate on building honor again. Since there is currently no ROH Champ, he is going to put more emphasis on the tag team division.
reDRagon then interrupt and walk out to the ring. Nigel says reDRagon is the best tag team in the world today. Bobby Fish takes up the mic and agrees with Nigel. Fish says that since they've had the titles TV ratings have gone up. Fish says he didn't come for the crowd's applause and tells them to keep it quiet. Fish says they're there to do Nigel a favor and that their reign has reached a mythological level. He says they're there to man up.
Fish mentions that tonight, they face the Forever Hooligans in a Proving Ground match. Fish asks to change the match from Proving Ground to a Title match. Nigel says it's a fantastic idea and the title will be put on the line.
The American Wolves then come out. Nigel asks what they have to say. Davey takes the mic and says he gives reDRagon props for putting the belts on the line against the Hooligans. He says they're one of the best teams in the world. Davey says he hates to admit it, but since reDRagon wears the belts, they're the best. But, there's a reason that the Wolves aren't in the World Title Tournament. They want to take up their rightful place as tag champs. Richards says to keep the belts warm because whatever happens tonight, they're coming to collect.
Then, Inside ROH is shown and they talk about Jay Briscoe and being stripped of the title. Michael Elgin is shown saying he doesn't want to be handed the title. The tournament bracket is shown.
