The show opens with a video package highlighting the main feuds heading into tonight, especially the return of Sting to the ring to take on Bobby Roode in a No Holds Barred match.
After the video package, the pyro hits and Mike Tenay welcomes us to the PPV. He begins hyping the main event before talking a couple of things over with his broadcast partner, Taz.
Bully Ray's music hits, and the big man makes his way down to the ring quickly, grabbing the mic and telling the sound man to shut his music off. Ray paces around angrily before sending a referee to the back.
The crowd chants that they want Devon. Ray doesn't look too amused with this. Ray asks the crowd if they know who he is. He asks the question again. The crowd lets him know what they think by chanting "you suck". He says that he's Bully Ray, and as of right now, he's the talk of the wrestling world. He says as of right now, he's trending worldwide on Twitter. He says he's trending, not because he's the toughest man in wrestling, not because he's calf-zilla, but because he's taken the PPV hostage.
Ray says that tonight the people in the crowd will get nothing. They only get a PPV if Ray gets what he wants. And what he wants, is for his match with James Storm to be for the #1 Contendership at Lockdown. He doesn't care if wrestlers come down, security, referees, or police, he will beat the crap out of anyone who tries to remove him from the ring until he gets what he wants. He stands in the ring for a minute before James Storm's music hits.
Storm makes his way out to the ring with a mic in one hand and a beer in the other. He says there are a lot of beer drinkers in Orlando tonight. He calls Bully's legs "chicken legs". He says Bully talks about how no one's going to be able to remove him from the ring, but Storm says it'll be really easy to remove him after Storm knocks him out with his right foot. Storm says they're scheduled later on for their match, and Ray wants it to be for the #1 Contendership. Storm says he'll give it to him, and right now.
