Show opens with Paul London in the ring with Stephen DeAngelis. Audio sucks, but London says something about American Dragon being his partner. Danielson comes to the ring. Michael Shane comes limping to the ring and confronts London. They trade blows. Then London hits a fucking shooting star press onto Shane on the floor. London then says he and Shane will be in a street fight tonight. And he will use a ladder. London climbs to the top of the ladder as Shane leaves. DeAngelis asks Dragon who his partner will be now. He says he doesn’t know, but he has an idea. Not a match but damn good segment worth a high rating. Rating: ****
