The show opens with TRP big mouth Gino Giovanni doing his usual "Here I am once again...in Scum City Fall River, Massachusetts" line. That always gets the crowd going. He talks about who's involved in the tournament, Jason Blade not being there (due to injury) and more. He's followed by "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards, who's talks about not being in the tournament, and how Kowalski wanted one of his students to get a Heavyweight Championship opportunity. TRP Heavyweight Champ Big Rick Fuller crashes the party, and says he has worked hard for over a year for a championship match, and there was no way in hell he would allow a newbie to come in and win the belt.
