Michael Cole: Whats that all about?
JBL: Perhaps she wants to be the newest member of The Union?
Jerry Lawler: Or perhaps she wants to fight them. I don’t know about you guys but Loralie Blackwell is one lady I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of.
Michael Cole: An interesting start to Inferno and thats exactly what you can expect on the road to Anarchy. And guys, one of the exciting things about Anarchy this year is the new talent and fresh blood.
Jerry Lawler: You’re right about that Michael. We saw Scott Grayse and Loralie Blackwell already but there are so many new and exciting wrestlers that joined the company over the past few months.

A blue strobe light flickers over the white smoke as Halsted rises up from the floor to the rampway while standing with his head down and hand-in-hand in front of his body when the first chord of “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold begins to play. He, then, rages forward with his arms spread and a massive yell from his abdomen “Hail to the King” as the line “Hail to the King” crescendos over the arena sound system. The blue strobe light fades as a cascading golden waterfall of fireworks flows from the top of the entrance to the rampway behind him, he saunters forward with a cocky strut and smirk on his face. He jumps onto the middle of the apron in front of the ring, wipes his feet, and jumps over the ropes with ease.
