Backstage In Locker Room Area:
WSWA stars are sitting back talking about the chances they're about to receive to be on ICW television. Harlem Doom, National Tag Champions Air Strike, Donovan Morgan, Kwee Wee, Shane Helms, Intermountain Champion Jason Jett, new signee Flash Flanagan, Ernest Miller, and Hugh Morrus are all busily talking.
Sting: All right guys, you all must realize one thing. We're here by the grace of ICW Owner Brandon Eversoll. He thinks you guys have the ability to make Clash an exciting show. You are not only representing the WSWA as a developmental league here tonight, but you are also representing yourself to the talent coordinators, the guys that will ultimately determine whether you make it to the ICW's main event, the prime time.
Vader: As your leaders, Steve and I are very happy to see you all here. Now, tonight's line-up is pretty straight forward. Harlem Doom against Air Strike for the tag titles. Donovan Morgan and Kwee Wee will battle. Jason Jett will defend his Intermountain gold against Shane Helms and of course Rhino will put the gold up against Ernest Miller, Hugh Morrus and Flash Flanagan tonight.
Sting: Now we do have a special guest here as well.
The doors open and in comes ICW Head of Talent Relationships, Maia Eversoll makes her way into the room.
Maia: Glad to see you all here. The new Clash format is going to give you all a chance to prove yourselves to the fans, and to front office whom I represent.
Just then, Josh Mathews and Maven along with Caryn Mower make their way into the locker room.
Caryn: Sorry we're late, someone gave us the wrong directions to the locker room.
Faarooq: You've got no respect, just like those punks Air Strike. We're the established stars, you think you can show up late and just see it slide around here? I don't think so. Ahmed, time to teach some respect.
Harlem Doom jumps on Team T.E. while the rest of the locker room pulls them apart.
Sting: That's it, tonight, Triple Threat Tag Team Title match, good luck Faarooq.
Harlem Doom leaves the locker room as Maven and Josh recover from the attacks they received.

Backstage Interview with Vampiro:
Vampiro: Rob Van Dam, you see, I hold onto the Raw Title, I have the advantage. Tonight, we'll wrestle one on one, Night Rage, if you even make it that far, I will destroy you and Moy Lazzario. Mike Awesome will be able to study my abilities and perhaps one day become the new master of hardcore, but as far as Night Rage inside the steel cage with the weapons goes, I will be the winner. And it's just too bad, because all you can do is TAKE IT!

Rhino: I'm on my way back, beware. I'm on the prowl, beware. Flash Flanagan, you may be good, you may be a talent, but you're not a Rhino, beware. Hugh Morrus, you might be just a little imbalanced, but no matter how crazy you are, when the Rhino comes stampeding, beware. Ernest Miller, a karate champion, the Cat. Well a Cat cannot stand up to a Rhino and especially not the Rhino Gore, beware.

Backstage Interview with Billy Kidman:
Kidman: Lita, you used to manage me. You went out and brought me into the ICW fold, for that, I guess I can thank you. Tonight however, there will be no freebies. You or your little girlfriend get dirty, well I'll just prove to you why I am the American champion.

RVD: Well Vampiro, we're just a little while away from Night Rage. Are you feeling it yet? That's right, you might be a hardcore icon, you might think you're the king of the extreme. Well there's one thing you're not, and that's ROB VAN DAM! And tonight, you'll find out what RVD is all about!
Backstage By The Entrance Way:
A limo pulled up with "ICW" on it. ICW Owner Brandon Eversoll stepped out from the limo.
Brandon: You ready for this? I didn't pay you what I'm paying you just to jack around. You'd better deliver tonight and better deliver when we take you to Mayhem and then to Night Rage. Got me? Good. Ah good, Clash is always my show, whenever I want it that way.
