- The green pyro goes off and we are ready for Velocity.
- Theodore Long is in the ring. Let me holla at ya playa. Long said he doesn't know why everyone is cheering because the arena is full of losers. He calls the crowd in Las Vegas slaves to the slot machines. Long tells everyone to stand up for the Reflection of Perfection...Mark Jindrak. Jindrak comes down to the ring and takes off his cape. He looks at himself in the mirror and brags about his body.
