New FCW General Manager Summer Rae, her assistant Rob Naylor, and Norman Smiley are in the ring and she brings out current FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. Rollins talks about winning the title last week and he brings out a man who he feels should have a rematch, the former FCW Champion Mike Dalton. Dalton appreciates Rollinsâ€™ comments and before he can say anything else, two time former FCW Champion Leo Kruger comes out and he demands his rematch. Rollins points out that he had to beat three men to get to Kruger last week. Rollins suggests that the man he feels who should have the title match face the man who feels like he should get a rematch and the winner faces Rollins later tonight.
