A graphic opening hits welcoming us to WWE Over The Limit. We then go live to the Joe Louis Arena where a series of pyro goes off in the entrance area. Michael Cole is the first to welcome us to the show along with Jerry “The King” Lawler and Matt Striker. They then pass it on to the Spanish Announce Team.
Kofi Kingston is out first to kick off the show.
