Brian Kendrick says he comes out week after week telling you that Jack Gallagher is nothing but a clown.  Tonight, the time for talk is over and he finally ends the charade.  He rids 205 Live of Jack Gallagher.  He will send Jack back where he belongs, the circus.

We see Rich Swann and Mustafa Ali playing video games and TJ Perkins enters.  TJ comments on Swann working 'so hard' and Ali decides to leave.  Swann wants to know what is going on with TJ.  He says it seems like TJ is trying to be better than him.  TJ says it is not trying, it just happens.  TJ thought Rich would be happy with some friendly competition.  Swann says that TJ is hung up on this since Swann beat him.  Swann says it is eating TJ up inside.  Swann says they can settle this in the ring next week.  TJ says he is down, but first he suggests some friendly competition playing video games.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Tony Nese says as he comes out and looks at everyone in Cleveland there is a bit of a misunderstanding.  Tony says he wants to clarify it for everyone.  Tony says this is what a premier athlete looks like.  He says he knows that you are envious of his chiseled physique and his athleticism.  If you want to be a premier athlete, you have to look like him.  It was because of him that his team won last week.  Tony tells everyone to keep this in mind when you look at his opponent.  There is a reason why Gran Metalik is covered from head to toe.  He looks like everyone else.

Akira Tozawa gets ready for his match as we go to commercial.

We are back and Neville is in the interview area.  He is asked who he wants to see win the next match.  Neville says the answer is obvious.  Tozawa and Titus Worldwide have been a thorn in his side for too long.  He thought he had dealt with him at Great Balls of Fire but he is back like an infection.  He hardly knew Ariya Daivari until last week when he disrespected his king.  Neville says he does not hope anyone wins.  He does not care who wins.  The victor tonight only has defeat and humiliation waiting for them at SummerSlam.  

Ariya Daivari has a mic and he speaks in Farsi.  He says tonight's match has higher stakes than any of you can comprehend.  His win will continue the tradition of Iranian wrestling.  Rasoul Khadem's legacy will be upheld at SummerSlam.  Akira Tozawa and Neville wrestle for themselves while Daivari wrestles for a nation.  He will be the next Cruiserweight Champion.
