Rob Van Dam comes to the ring and says he knows they love him because he has entertained them over the years, and he knows he is a great wrestler. He says he is often imitated but not intimidated, and he is talking to them as the next world champion because he is going to beat Bobby Roode. RVD mentions the fact that he never lost his title and he knows what he brings to the table, then Roode comes out and says he sounds overconfident.
Roode says his head is usually in the clouds, but he wants to remind RVD who he is and says he is the 'it' factor and their champion. He says he is the most dominant champion because of his victories over guys like AJ Styles and James Storm, and RVD will be added to that list. Roode says they get to choose each other's opponents tonight, and he wants to know who RVD picked for him. RVD says is going to face Ken Anderson, and he says that's great but RVD is going to face his friend Jeff Hardy, and he wishes him luck.
