We begin with the announcement of how we will found out the next challenger for Enzo Amore.
We are in Lexington, Kentucky and your announcers are Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness.
Enzo Amore comes to the ring with Noam Dar.
Enzo says the Zo Train went to the top of the 205 Live mountain. He says that he is generous and he provided opportunities to become his next opponent for his title.
