The show begins with JBL in the ring alongside Johnny Curtis, Big E. Langston, and Maxine. Behind them there is a table with a cloth draped over it.
JBL: Last week, I made my long awaited return to WWE as the new general manager for NXT. However, I am not back because of you people. You people disgusted me a few years back and looking into the crowd, I see that nothing has changed. The real reason I have come back is the man to my left, Johnny Curtis. John, You have so much potential, but are forced to be on this sad excuse for television. That is where I come in. I will turn this show into must-see television, and people will notice Johnny Curtis. That brings me to what lies on this table.
JBL pulls of the cloth to reveal a glimmering title belt.
JBL: This right here is the first ever NXT World Heavyweight Championship. Tonight's main event is for this title, and it will be Johnny Curtis vs MVP vs Big E. Langston. And to make sure that the match is called right down the middle, I will be the special guest referee.
Johnny: I vow to you people that I will become NXT World Heavyweight Champion before the night is over. Montel, you are in for the biggest beating of your life! Together, Big E. and I will destroy you. And I will walk out as champion, because I am the real deal, I am real entertainment, and I am a real wrestler! De—
MVP's music hits and he comes out with Percy Watson.
Montel: Classy move. Once again Johnny Curtis can't face me like a man, so he hides behind his buddies. Curtis, you may be able to run for now, but this won't end tonight. It will never end. Curtis, I came back to WWE for these people. I want to give these people what they want. And these people want to see me kick your ass!
Johnny: That's too bad, because after tonight, you won't be kicking anybody's ass. You're nothing more than a small roadblock on my path to greatness. Step one is tonight, when I defeat you for the NXT World Heavyweight Championship.
MVP stares down Johnny Curtis as we head to a commercial break.
