Back in the ring, Metalik heads to the top and gets knocked down. Metalik is now on the tree of woe as TJP stomps on his face.

After the match, Kalisto comes out to celebrate with Metalik. TJP gets up and says shut up. He gets all mad and says “What are you looking at? You think this is funny?” as he tears apart the announce table. He throws the steps and a chair as he finally heads to the back. He comes back and throws more steps before heading to the back. The crowd boos him on his way to the back.
We get a video package recapping the events from last night when Enzo Amore is getting checked out by the doctor. Nia Jax then comes in the room to check on Enzo, he tells her he’s good. We then see Enzo getting stitched up.
We head backstage where Dasha Fuentes is interviewing Enzo and she asks him about his injured ankle. Enzo says that he is built Ford tough, but the Doctors haven’t cleared him for action. He says that if he could fight tonight he would. Tony Nese shows up and says that four weeks ago the Zo train beat some sense into him and he wants back in. Enzo tells him you think it’s easy. Nese says that he wants in and not as one of his cronies, but first in line after Enzo.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher heads out to the ring as we see a recap of Brian Kendrick getting destroyed by Hideo Itami’s GTS. Then we also see the events from last week when Gallagher used a lead pipe to beat up Itami. Gallagher grabs the mic and says that Itami isn’t here tonight and has some bruised ribs. Gallagher says that the scales are not even though compared to what Itami did to Kendrick. Gallagher says that he is here to ruin Hideo Itami’s life. Gallagher goes to continue, but Itami shows up and heads towards the ring. Gallagher tries catching him first, but Itami hits him with some punches. Gallagher tries to use the umbrella again, but Itami catches it, then uses it himself. Itami takes a big swing at Gallagher who ducks and heads out through the crowd.
We head backstage where Cedric Alexander talks about the outcome of his match against Enzo. He says that he will get another chance and he will make sure to take the title next time. Goldust enters and says that Cedric needs to watch out for Enzo’s mouth and that he has Nese in his back pocket. Cedric isn’t worried and says that if he needs to he will just injure Enzo’s other ankle.
Enzo Amore limps out to the ring and introduces Tony for the main event.
