Regal says he can see some of his same qualities in Ray and that is sometimes the mentality that wins the battle. He says most people would say that is a bad thing, but not him. Phillips says it is a concern that Storm has a title match against Rhea Ripley at Worlds Collide, so her focus is not fully on tonight’s match. Shepherd says Niven has worked hard to get herself into position for a title match and Phillips says Niven seems like the only one who is fully focused on the match.

Talk turns to the match between Tyler Bate and Jordan Devlin.

Phillips says Devlin is here to make a point against Bate and Regal says Devlin is getting his chance tonight and he cannot complain about opportunities anymore.

Phillips says ladder matches can also make careers and Regal says he is ready to see what the men will put themselves through to win the titles.
