Neville grabs a microphone and says “Austin Aries, TJP, and now Richard Swann.” Neville then kicks Swann out of the ring. He says it feels good to be the King and holds his belt high. “Or does it?” Neville asks how many pretenders he has to obliterate before he gets the respect he deserves? He says he knows what is being said about Akira Tozawa, but it takes more than a Tweet from Titus O’Neil to be the Cruiserweight Champion. Neville advises Tozawa to tread carefully, unless he wants to bend a knee before the King.

Replays are shown from the brawl between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe.

Mike Rome is backstage with Samoa Joe. Joe says the brawl doesn’t change anything. They’re playing into his strategy. It’s never been about the words. It’s about the actions. Brock Lesnar didn’t sweat him, so his reaction is to send the messenger back with the same wounds he’ll give the manager. Lesnar wanted to let everyone know this is his house, but Joe let him know who he was going to do battle with. Then, at Great Balls of Fire, Joe will walk to the ring, look Brock in the eyes, lock-in the Coquina Clutch and take the Universal Chamspionship.
