The Street Profits are backstage and Ford runs down what’s happened so far. They say they don’t want the smoke that The Fiend is bringing. They get excited about the Royal Rumble match up next, and Dawkins improvises some theme musics to suggest who the winners might be.

Michael Cole announces that two spots have opened up for this match because Rusev and Bobby Lashley got into a brawl earlier today and they’re not medically cleared. That means there are five unknown spots. Brock is out first, obviously, and his first opponent is Elias. On his way to the ring, Elias says Houston has a problem because there is gorilla in the ring and his fat zookeeper. He sings a song about Brock and the Champion gets pissed and runs at him on the ramp.
