As FTR and Beretta were discussing a rematch with Roppongi Vice in the ring, the United Empire music hit and Ospreay came out on the stage. He then signaled and Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis) and Aaron Henare came through the crowd to lay out all three men, joined by Ospreay. It was the on-screen debut for all four men.
