We begin by reliving the end of the 11th Anniversary Show. Last week, Nigel McGuinness told us that the locker room would be united against the forces of SCUM. He also went through a list of people who would get a shot at Kevin Steen to bring the title back from the dark side. What new developments will we see for Supercard of Honor?
