The Briscoes vs War Machine feud was examined. Last week, Jay beat Hanson after two Jay Drillers.

Jay Lethal and Truth Martini discussed Kyle O’Reilly. They let it be known that Kyle would be embarrassed by the “Greatest First Generation Wrestler of All Time”. Lethal gave Kyle credit as a fantastic tag team specialist. Tonight, Kyle had to go solo.
