Josh welcomes us to the show and puts over WrestleMania. Titus enters the arena and takes the mic in the ring. Titus first treats the crowd like little kids and tells them to stay in their seats and shut up. He talks about A-Ri getting in his business and “canceling” the showtime. Darren Young’s music hits as he enters and gets some cheap heat from the crowd. Darren tells Titus, he needs to worry about him as they have unfinished business. Titus says he cleaned his clock. Darren says he doesn’t like him, but the past two week he’s respected him for turning on the crowd. He “respects him.” Titus doesn’t care about respect from the crowd or from him. He appreciates that he’s starting to see the light. Titus and Darren shake hands.

Percy’s music hits and he enters the arena. Percy reminds Titus how he blew up at being compared to Darren, and here he is now shaking hands with him. Percy says he told A-Ri last week that Titus was one of the good guys. But he realizes he is wrong now and “the gloves are off”. Titus calls him stupid for it. Percy says back to Titus that the only stupid people here are in the ring (Titus and Darren). Darren butts into the conversation, and tells him to step into “His ring” and tell it to their faces. Titus holds Darren off cause he’s “soft and weak” and you have to ask him nicely. Titus does.

Before Percy can respond, A-Ri’s music hits and he enters the arena. A-Ri gets a huge pop from the crowd. Titus says we’ve got “Ebony and Ivory” now. A-Ri tells Titus to keep his mouth shut and no problem getting in the ring with them. A-Ri has a problem with last week. He relates it to his experience with the Miz. He kicks his ass, and has no problem doing it again. If he has a problem, he can say it to his face. And with that, they stair each other down before they brawl. Titus and Darren get tossed out of the ring. This is where Striker makes his appearance and makes a tag team main event.


Tyson Kidd vs. Trent Barreta

Trent is out first, Josh asks Regal about him. Regals says he has “locker room etiquette.” Tyson is out next. Regal gives advantage to experience and Tyson Kidd. The two lock up and Kidd gets caught. Trent has to use a bridge to save from a pin. With some arm work, Trent takes over. Kidd tosses Trent out of the ring after a bounce from the ropes. It leads to a suicide dive. Regal points out how Trent’s neck hits the barricade in the replay of the dive. Both take till 9 to get in the ring. Back in the ring, they go in to a strike and kick fest. Trent wins it out with a kick to the head. The match continues to be back and forth. Regal says with two good competitors, it’s a conditioning game. Both are now getting a move or two in and a pin attempt. Kidd gets dropped on his nuts. Trent tries to go up to take advantage but is pushed back. Trent then rolls Kidd off the top ropes for a pin.
