We start off with a look at the five men who will have the opportunity to face Neville at Wrestlemania. We get comments from Austin Aries, TJ Perkins, Akira Tozawa, Brian Kendrick, and Tony Nese.
We are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and your announcers are Tom Phillips and Corey Graves.
Neville makes his way to the stage and he has a mic.
Neville says one year and one day. One year and one day. In this very building, he broke his ankle three weeks out from the Big One and he was robbed of his first Wrestlemania moment. Neville says he looked around and he noticed that nobody cared. Neville says he was forgotten by each and every one of you. Neville says he took action and maybe he was a little bit ruthless and he obliterated an entire division to show how good he is.
Here we are again and it is Wrestlemania season again. On 205 Live, we have the biggest main event of this show. A five way elimination match to see who shares the grandest stage of them all with the King. Regardless of whether it is Tony Nese, Akira Tozawa, Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins, or even Austin Aries, it is irrelevant. They serve only one purpose. They are there to feed the inevitable. At Wrestlemania will deconstruct his opponent until they question their very existence. He will make them regret having such foolish ambition as to challenge the King of the Cruiserweights.
