And it’s main event time! JBL and Jerry Lawler are guest commentators for this one. The Men’s Royal Rumble match is about to get underway and our first entrant is Elias and. Elias is in the ring before the match with his guitar, he says he’s number 1 in the match and in our hearts. He knows the deck is stacked against him but he will eliminate every other man and show them what WWE stands for.

Before that however, he has a song but he’s interrupted by Jeff Jarrett! JJ comes to the ring and struts before he can begin the match with Elias. He introduces himself, the world’s greatest singer, greatest entertainer, and greatest wrestler. Ain’t he great? Elias says he’s gets interrupted all the time, but it’s nice to be interrupted by someone who brings something to the table. Elias says he knows JJ is out here because he wants to walk with Elias, but he also wants a duet Jarrett agrees but as JJ is introducing himself again. Elias clocks him with a right hand.
