An opening video showing old photos of the 'Hardcore Originals,' with them talking about how they aren't pretty, but that they were a part of history. The promo ended and we're off!

Taz is introduced to the audience and he makes his way to the top of the ramp. Taz welcomes the crowd to the show and says that after talking to the guys in the back, it's going to be 'EXTREME' tonight. He says the passion from the guys in the back is going to bleed out, in more ways than one. An 'ECW' chant broke out. Taz said that there have been some doubters and haters on what they've done in the past, and that they were just about violence. Taz said those guys don't get it, and all they did was "revolutionize this business." He said the haters will never get it, and they might as well just kiss his a--. Taz finished his promo with his old 'Beat me if you can, survive if I let you' catchphrase.
