(“Snap your fingers, snap your neck” blasts on the PA system. Carnage walks out on the stage. Carnage goes too fast for the camera man, and creates total carnage on his camera.)

Zack Ryder stands around trying to figure out whether or not he wants to attempt to throw him into the ring, or see if Carnage is wore down enough to keep him on the outside to attempt to get a count out. As that is just as good in this match as a pin.]

JR-Zack has a big choice.

King-You take the count out, all you need in this match is a win, this is not like a title match.

Kris Gaffney-I’m sure that Ryder doesn’t view it like that though.

King-What do you know, he countered the counter.

Kris Gaffney-Had to happen at some point.

(“That’s entertainment” blasts on the PA system. Logan Riley walks out on the stage, he steps inside of the ring.)

(“Game On” blasts on the PA system. Tony Ikeda walks out on the stage, and he steps inside of the ring.)

JR-This seems to be a match where Logan Riley is trying to teach Tony a lesson.
