We are back and Brian Kendrick and Jack Gallagher are asked about their alliance. Jack asks why does he have to justify his actions to the WWE Universe. Which one of them had a hole in their forehead when they got married? He looked in the mirror and learned a lesson. He could be a winner. With the help of Mr. Kendrick, the cruiserweight division will change. He can go through life with a scar, but not as a joke.
Drew Gulak makes his way to the ring and he has his ‘No Chants’ Sign. Drew stands on the announce table and he introduces himself. Tonight he will use the table as special guest commentator, but first he will use the table as a platform. He says he is a man with big ideas and he will not back down. He wants to address what the Fashion Police did to him. He says the treatment he received in fashion jail were unspeakable. They will be hearing from his attorney, who is in fact, himself.
Drew says some would compare his plight on 205 Live to Gallileo. If Gallileo was alive today, he would be disgusted by the likes of Akira Tozawa. Tozawa believes the WWE revolves around his incessant chanting. Gallileo would become vinidcated and hailed as a hero. Drew says he does not consider himself a hero, but if the plain boots and reasonable trunks fit, so be it. Drew looks to the future and sees him as Vindicated 205 Live Hall of Famer.
In the near future, we see the rest of his power point presentation.
We go to Slide number six and it is No Cell Phones. Absolutely no cell phones in the arena. Gallileo never had a cell phone and he was considered a learned man. If you put your cell phones down, maybe you will learn something.

We are back and Neville makes his way to the ring.
Neville says we are five days away from one of the biggest pay per view extravaganzas of the year, No Mercy. You lucky people will see mammoth clashes as Braun Strowman faces Brock Lesnar, John Cena dukes it out with Roman Reigns, but better than all of that will be a comedic performance as Enzo Amore faces the conquering King of the Cruiserweights in what can only be described as the biggest mistake in his miserable life.
Neville says he will take pleasure in exposing what Enzo is. He is a stain on the moral fabric of society and someone not qualified to walk into his world.
Enzo Amore’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring and he is taped up from what happened on Raw.
Neville says this is classic. Last night, you got obliterated by the monster. Neville says if he was Enzo, he would be at home recuperating, but instead you are dancing like a chicken and spouting your catchphrases.
Enzo says normally he would ask Neville how is he doin’ because he knows that Neville is jealous.
Neville asks why would he be jealous of Enzo. Neville says he is the most formidable cruiserweight on the planet Earth. How can he be jealous of Enzo when he is better in every way conceivable.
Enzo says there is some truth in that statement. He is not the wrestler that Neville is. Enzo says that is why you are jealous. Enzo says hate ain’t nothing but love disguised by jealousy. Enzo says he is twice the superstar that Neville will ever be. Enzo says that the locker room and him don’t get along. When they play his song, the people sing along with him. Enzo says you can hate him or love him, but you know who he is. Enzo says that Neville is a big fish in a small pond. Enzo says that a shark had invaded your water.
Neville says you had to go and run your mouth, didn’t ya? Neville says he wanted to make this quick, but now he is going to make an example out of you. Neville says treat him like a game he will show you how to play. Do you believe Neville cares about merchandise sales or celebrity relationships? Does he care about being a superstar? None of that matters. None of that will matter on Sunday because you can’t fight. Neville says he is brutal and he wants to know what will Enzo do when he is brutalized to the point where there is no hope. Will you try to get yourself disqualified or kick him in the jewels? The best you can hope for at No Mercy is survival.
Enzo says you’re right. Those tactics won’t win him a championship. This ain’t Sunday and this ain’t No Mercy.
Enzo kicks Neville in the groin.
We go to credits.
