Renee Young is already in the ring to start the night, and she welcomes Shinsuke Nakamura. Before their interview can take place, Dolph Ziggler interrupts them and Renee leaves as we get a staredown between the two Superstars. Ziggler begins to mock Nakamura, “translating” for the fans and claiming that he is actually Nakamura’s favorite wrestler of all time, and that it must be overwhelming for him being in the ring with his hero. Ziggler said that his name isn’t actually Shinsuke, it’s Michael, and he actually grew up as a poor kid from Indiana (Michael Jackson reference).

Nakamura lets the mocking continue for awhile until growing bored and stealing the microphone, asking Dolph what his problem is. He speaks Japanese and calls Ziggler a jackass before Dolph takes a cheap shot on him. Ziggler goes for a superkick but Nakamura side-steps it and takes down the “Showoff”. He sets up for the Kinshasa, but Dolph rolls out of the ring and we get another staredown as he retreats up the ramp.
