We take a look back at the Number One Contender Match from 205 Live between Akira Tozawa and Ariya Daivari.

Tozawa, Crews, and Titus are in the locker room.  Titus says Tozawa was the best investment he could have made.

Neville enters the locker room and he says he is not here to fight.  He is here to scout his competition for SummerSlam, if he is his competition.

Titus says Neville has done everything to try to beat Tozawa down, but he is still here.  

Neville says he saw Tozawa beat Daivari, but tonight he faces someone who has nothing to lose.  Neville says that is risky, but what does he know.
