General Manager William Regal welcomes us from his home, so I guess we’re doing HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT at the top. He kicks it to Keith Lee, who’s sitting at a desk with his titles in front of him. He offers a shoutout to his mentor, Tim Brooks, then he talks about the opportunities that made him a champ-champ. In the spirit of those opportunities, he’s made the difficult decision to relinquish the North American title… with the caveat that as many people get an opportunity to win it as possible.
Back to Mr. Regal, who says that starting tonight we’ll get a series of Triple Threat matches, with the winners advancing to a ladder match for the NA belt at the TakeOver XXX. Johnny Gargano, Bronson Reed & Roderick Strong will be in the first one
