The regular opening video package begins the show, and cruiserweight champion Jordan Devlin escapes. Andy Shepherd and Nigel McGuinness welcome viewers to BT Sports Studios and throw them to Devlin for promotion.
Jordan Devlin says you want to be the best when you are an “ace”. Devlin says he wants to be “the best performer in the company under the age of 205.” Devlin was disturbed by the returning Trent Seven, who told Devlin that he was “correct.” Seven will carry out a list of Devlin’s recent achievements and tell him that he should face Devlin immediately. Devlin ridicules Seven and tells him if he can drop “at least £ 30”, and they can fight. Trent drops Devlin with a single blow before telling Jordan that it will be “less than £ 205.”
After the end of the segment, Eddie Dennis has been shown to hype Hunt for tonight’s big deadly 4-way elimination tag team match. After the ad break, a video package will air to promote NXT Women’s Championship Kaley Ray.
