Gilbert Corsey is in the ring. Almost all the OVW superstars and Dean Hill come out for the Lifetime Achievement Award ceremony, being presented to OVW founder "Nightmare" Danny Davis. Before Gilbert gets started, Dean says a special guest is here who has been heavily involved in OVW over the years, and he brings out Al Snow. Gilbert brings out representatives from the KBWA, and then Danny. They say they wanted to start a hall of fame and looking at what all OVW has meant to the state, as well as being representative of sending athletes on to the "big stage", whether it be WWE or Japan, they couldn't think of anyone better to give the first award to than Danny. Danny says he is humble away from the ring, and hopes he lives up to it. He talks about watching wrestling with his grandpa in black and white, and how his mother helped him get into the business, and if it wasn't for her, this wouldn't be possible.
After the ceremony, Danny says he is going to offer an opportunity to someone right now. He calls LJ, Billy O, the Bro Godz, Zo, David Lee Lorenze III, Adam Slade, Shane Andrews, Randall Floyd, & Kevin Giza in the ring. There will be a battle royal right now when he rings the bell and the winner gets a shot in the main event at the OVW Heavyweight Title!

She then turns her attention to a trainee (Sam Thompson) at ringside. She tosses him in the ring and gives him a release German Suplex. Another trainee is out to check on him, and he also gets a release German.
