- The show opens with a video package highlighting the Hideo Itami/Ascension feud, as well as the debut of Finn Balor last week.

- Balor comes out to an awesome reaction from the crowd. He does his usual entrance, but it doesn't have the same feel without the paint he typically wears. Regardless, the fans love him already. He says he's here because he's the future.

Tyson Kidd's music cuts him off and Kidd enters with his wife Natalya. Kidd says nobody cares about Balor, and he clearly lacks respect.

Justin Gabriel comes out and says Kidd is right. He says that every week a new international sensation debuts, but they have to get through Kidd and Gabriel first. They look poised to attack Balor, but Itami's theme hits and he makes the save. Kidd and Gabriel retreat.

The ring announcer says that William Regal has channeled the spirit of Teddy Long and booked a tag team match.
