We are in Greenville, South Carolina and your announcers are Vic Joseph, Percy Watson, and Nigel McGuinness.

Lio Rush you are lucky.  You are still stuck living in this garbage of a city in this embarassment of a state.  You are lucky you have the honor and privilege of watching the 23 year old piece of gold.  The Man of the Hour who does it better than anyone else on the planet.  With all due respect to his opponent, he is one of the best in the world but he is 'one of'.  Tonight, Tozawa is facing the best cruiserweight.  Tozawa should have kept his name out of his mouth because now he is going to feel the rush.

Vic talks about Drew Gulak, the challenger for the Cruiserweight Title.

Drew says he possesses leadership with his actions in the ring.  The way he will dismantle Cedric at SummerSlam is a perfect example.  Cedric has not faced anyone like him.  Cedric is a loner and he has gone complacent and feels entitled.  Drew says he would represent not only himself as the greatest submission specialist, he would represent a generation.  When he locks in the GULock, Cedric will tap out.

We take a look at WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander.  Cedric says he has been training for this match harder than any other.  Drew Gulak is a tough opponent.  With Gallagher and Kendrick at Gulak's side, it makes him more dangerous.  Cedric says he is ready.  It is about always being ready so you don't have to worry about the variables.  Cedric says he is a man of action while Drew likes to talk.  Cedric points out that he is undefeated in 2018 and he is the soul of 205 Live.  No one respects this brand more than him.  If you want a better 205 Live, Drew Gulak, show it to him.  Try to make him tap out because once he hits the Lumbar Check, it is over.
