The show opens with a video package of the Neville-TJP partnership, which led to TJP asking Neville to hold up his end of their bargain. Neville promised TJP a shot at his title, if he aided him in his feud with Austin Aries. This led to Neville attacking TJP on Raw Monday and then granting him his title opportunity in tonight’s main event.

As Swann leaves, Titus tells him to go put a dress shirt on. O’Neill then makes his pitch to Akira and why he should join The Titus Brand.
