We get a video package, hyping Kenny King with the hashtag #Kingofthenight. Apparently King is coming back soon.
Velvet Sky is shown backstage chatting with fans on Facebook, and Tenay says she’ll be doing that throughout the PPV.
Magnus gets a bit of promo time. He says he’s speaking by himself, all alone. He was told there’d be an interview that needed to be changed to a solo address. It’s a theme that he’s got to do everything himself. Handle his business. It’s different tonight. He’s locking in a cage with his title on the line, and it’s Joe’s rules. He’s got to battle against the adversity and agenda of MVP. There’s something about this situation that doesn’t sit with Magnus, and that’s that everyone keeps talking about what Joe will do to Magnus. But not what Magnus will do to Joe, or what Joe will do to Joe. Magnus says Joe doesn’t have it in his brain, and that’s what it takes to be champion, and Magnus will prove it tonight. While Magnus might not look or behave like an animal, if you back him into a corner, he becomes very dangerous. Joe might learn that the hard way when he looks up and realizes he’s been made to bow down.
Back in the arena, JB introduces Manik, who makes his way to the ring to (surprise, surprise) next to no reaction from the fans.
