We are in Orlando, Florida and your announcers are Tony Schiavone and Rich Bocchini.

Rich and Tony run through the card and talk about the Battle Riot show in New York in July.
We see Shane Strickland asked about the bounty and we see him attacked from behind by Brody King.
MVP is in the back and he is asked about his match against Maxwell J. Friedman.  MVP says he is a little distracted but he understands that Maxwell comes from money and he is used to writing checks, but he is writing checks his body cannot cash.  He is used to being in a private school, but he is going to reform school.  You are going to want to ask the referee to pull him off Maxwell.  Then he can focus on Sami Callihan.  They do not get along and things can get bloody.
Before the opening match starts, Maxwell J. Friedman has the mic.  He says that you are watching MLW Fusion, but more important, you are watching Maxwell J. Friedman.  Tonight he goes one on one with MVP, the man with a thousand nicknames.  Maxwell says they will add a new nickname tonight, the Jabronin Ronin.
