Billy comes out with Aloicious Hamilton, BGB, Drew Thomas, and another new superstar and says they have not been able to find Houdini, and he knows Amon has him. He's tired of cat and mouse games, and if you know anything about him, he hates cats.

DL3 comes out with Dustin Jackson & Jaylee. He says a little birdie told him that Cardinal had an issue with him for eliminating him single-handedly at the Nightmare Rumble. He said that same birdie told him that he is here tonight and wants to fight, so come on out!
