JB “What and honour it is to be broadcasting some of the greatest wrestling matches with an all-time great like you King.”
King “Well JB, I must say that the pleasure is all yours. It’s great to be the King and even better to be a part of one of the industry’s most historic nights. Tonight wrestling returns to Saturday Nights, where it belongs, and I can’t wait to get this show started.”
JB “We have an exciting night in store for fans here in Nashville and all of our fans watching at home on NBC. Tonight in action we’re going to see four great matches. Our elite division takes flight with AJ Styles squaring off against another great wrestler, Billy Kidman. It’s the battle of the Styles Clash and the Shooting Star Press tonight.”
King “Plus Buff Bagwell will be here tonight to square off against Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner, James Storm, and Curt Henning in a four corners match.”
JB “Representing our Legends tonight is the Nature Boy Ric Flair and Rowdy Roddy Piper teaming up against Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man Randy Savage.”
King “That alone is an exciting match, but let’s not forget another tag team match, Marty Jannetty and a mystery partner going up against the Nasty Boys. Now if my sources are correct, which they normally are, the mystery man is doink the clown”
JB “Doink the Clown?”
King “Yes, because that’s exactly what Jannetty is... he’s a clown!”
JB “Let’s send things to the ring with David Penzer for the opening contest”
David Penzer introduces the opening contest as a one fall contest with a 10 Minute Time Limit.

plays as AJ Styles enters the arena.
Phenomenal AJ Styles vs. Billy Kidman
The young AJ Styles squares off against Billy Kidman in the opening contest for PCW’s Main Event. This high flying collision has the two of them diving off the ropes, the turnbuckles, the ring steps, and the steel guard rails. AJ sends Kidman to the outside with a huge Hurricanrana and follows up with a springboard off the top rope. After both men put their bodies on the line, it’s Kidman who nails his finisher first. The Shooting Star Press off the top rope makes its mark on AJ, but when Andrew Thomas makes the count, Styles is able to kick out. AJ gets to his feet and drops Kidman with the Styles Clash. AJ rolls him up for the win.

After the match, AJ Styles celebrates his first victory ever in Pro Championship Wrestling when he is interrupted by Christopher Daniels.
Daniels “What a great job AJ, you truly are Phenomenal, but there’s one problem. You are not the top guy in the Elite Division. I am. I am the man who’s going to put PCW on the map because I am Christopher Daniels. I am the Fallen Angel, and you’re being put on notice that I’m going to take you to hell and back before you know it.”
Daniels drops the microphone and the two of them exchange words.

plays as the Honky Tonk Man comes out with Jimmy Hart. The two of them chat with Mean Gene about how he’s still the greatest wrestler in the world today, and how there are all these rip-offs of him from Jeff Jarrett, to BG James being a roadie, to the Little Richard play off of Johnny B. Badd. There is only one Honky Tonk Man and only one Jimmy Hart and they’re here in PCW. The interview is interrupted when Jeff Jarrett comes out and confronts the Honky Tonk Man.
