Josh Ashcraft & Ca$h Flo come to the ring. Ca$h says this has to stop. Josh says everything in his life has been falling apart, but one thing he could count on was the family he knew with the Legacy of Brutality. He tells Ca$h to stop and not do anything, he wants to talk to Dapper Dan face-to-face. Josh calls him out and asks him what his deal is. He says he has had his back since he started here. Dan says the people want him to knock Josh out. He says he's listened to Josh every step of the way for 4 years, but at the last Special, he got slapped. He said he tore the Legacy of Brutality shirt off and for the first time last week, heard all the fans chant his name. Josh says they are family, and he has been loyal to him. Dan says he has always been loyal, but it started being more about money than friendship. He says at the next Special, Josh is either rolling with Ca$h Flo, or he has his back.
That concludes tonight's pre-show dark matches. I always recommend watching the episode first on TV or online before reading the rest of the report.
