Rex Butler makes his way out to the ring. Butler says that the events that took place last week has put a lot of strain on him as Commissioner of the PCW. Butler says there’s no denying the fact that things between Wade Barrett and Bobby Roode have taken a more violent turn, as evidenced by the actions of Roode Saturday night at Canadian Collision. Butler says that he, in good conscience, could not allow the PCW’s Heavyweight Champion resort to the tactic of using a steel chair to help gain himself a victory, in an attempt to keep the title around his waist. So, after taking the past couple days to review his options, Butler says that, tonight, there will be a rematch for the Heavyweight Title. However, in ensure that there is a legitimate winner, this match will take place inside a steel cage! Butler leaves the ring as the show goes to commercials.

Brooke then asks how it feels for Beth to return and find herself back on top of the Women’s Division. Beth gives all the credit in the world to Bayley for her ability to overcome the odds and win the Women’s Title last month; but Beth says that it’s hard to say whether Bayley would have gotten that chance had Beth not gotten injured. She says that, now that she’s back on top, she knows there are a number of eyes on her and the target is squarely on her back. And, because of that, she’s open to all challengers. Beth walks away as the show goes to commercials.

Returning from the break, Rhett Titus is shown backstage, destroying the locker room. Kenny King comes in and tries to calm Rhett down. Rhett says he’s frustrated. Kenny asks him why, and Rhett says that they should be Tag Team Champions right now.

Rhett storms past Kenny and out of the locker room as the scene goes back to ringside.
