Welcome to WNW's live coverage of Main Event!
Byron Saxton and Tom Phillips welcome us to the show as they hype Rob Van Dam vs. Bad News Barrett for the Intercontinental Championship.
Barrett makes his way to the ring wearing his title around his waist. He grabs a mic and reminds us that he successfully defended his title against RVD at Payback. He hit him so hard, RVD is disillusion. Last night on Raw, Barrett was pinned by RVD after Cesaro ditched him. And somehow that earns RVD a title match tonight. RVD hasn't been the smartest guy, but every time he gets hit in the head, he loses a piece of his pea-size brain. And the fans have to remind him of who he is, RVD, RVD, RVD. He is like a bloody zombie. In fact, I'm afraid I've got some bad news. Once I connect with the final Bullhammer, RVD will be part of the Walking Dead cast. RVD comes down to the ring and delivers a heel kick before Barrett fleas from the ring.
