Mike and Maria Kanellis get a promo backstage where Mike scoffs about the idea that he needs a showcase match to prove that he’s the best, and tonight is about watching the destruction of the friendship between Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa. Maria says her husband will prove he’s better than the best.
Today’s opening promo is Mike and Maria Kanellis talking about how Akira Tozawa has no chance, and Brian Kendrick and Tozawa get a counterpoint where Kendrick says it’s simple— Mike is screwed.
Mike and Maria Kanellis run into Drake Maverick backstage and thank him for banning Kendrick from ringside. He says he’s glad they’re on the same page but stops Maria when they leave and informs her that she is also banned from ringside.

Drake Maverick is chatting with Maria and Mike Kanellis backstage when Brian Kendrick rolls up. He blames Maria for his boy Tozawa losing last week but she says Akira had better look in the mirror.
