Paul: I love me some Brazilian girls now. Richard: Stop it, Paul. Paul: What? Diana and Ana start the match off with a test of strength.

We cut to the backstage area as we see Kaine Harris sitting on a stomp with his head lowered. Kaine: No one knows the pain of someone who's had to fight all his life. No one knows what it's like to walk with your wounds showing, carrying battle scars like permanent tattoos. But I know what it's like...To fight. To survive. Kaine lifts his head. Kaine: To know that any day could very well be your last. The rough streets of Oakland made me who I am, but there's also someone that keeps me from not fully going over the edge. We see a pair of female legs standing next to Kaine. The woman crouches down, revealing herself to be Jessica. Kaine: It's good to have an angel looking over you, and tonight, she'll be looking over me.

Randall: And his opponent, from Brasilia, Brazil, weighing in at 245 pounds, Marcelo Ronaldo. Lucas: Marcelo Ronaldo, was once a soccer player from Brazil, who played in England, Spain, and Italy before deciding to try out pro wrestling. Richard: He certainly has the cocky demeanor going for him, but let's see if he can back it up. Marcelo takes off his shirt and pops his pecs in front of Jessica, causing Kaine to rush in and forearm Marcelo to the canvas and stomp away on him. The referee breaks it up as Kaine backs away.

Janet: I’m standing here with Brother Julius and LeJuan Jones. Brother Julius: Janet, how many times do we have to correct you?, It's number one draft pick and should’ve been GPW World Heavyweight Champion, LeJuan Jones? Janet: Right. I’m standing here with Brother Julius and the number one draft pick and should be GPW World Heavyweight Champion, LeJuan Jones. Brother Julius: Much better. Maybe you should write that down, so you won't forget. Janet: Yeah...so, number one draft pick and should be GPW World Heavyweight Champion, LeJuan Jones, tonight, you face Mangod. What are your thoughts? LeJuan: My thoughts? Janet: Yes? Against Mangod. LeJuan: Mangod? Mangod? Just who or what is a Mangod? Janet: Mangod is-- LeJuan: I don't need your input, I just need you to listen. Okay? Janet: Okay. LeJuan: Good. Mangod, whoever or whatever you are, you are, by no means, as great or as athletic as I am. So for you to step in the ring with me, you've already doomed yourself from the start. Once I break your ankles, crossface you up, and hit that Game Winner on you, I'll be one step closer to being GPW World Heavyweight Champion. *LeJuan Jones and Brother Julius walks past Janet* Richard: Our main event is next. **Commercial Break** **Promo for GPW DEFCON** We cut to outside of the arena, getting a view of Ft.
