Akira Tozawa is out for the opening contest of the evening. The Scottish Super Nova, Noam Dar, is out second. Drew Gulak comes out of nowhere and attacks Dar on the entrance path!

Mike and Maria Kanellis cut a promo. Mike says he hates the idea that he's not considered the best because he hasn't been seen on television. Mike scowls: "I've been the best since I debuted two years ago." He then begs Drake Maverick to send him the best cruiserweights he can, because he promises to defeat them. "I am better than the best."
