After Brian Cage defeated Johnny Impact to capture the World Heavyweight title, he was immediately confronted by Toronto native Michael Elgin. The two heavyweights stared each other down before Elgin jumped Cage, hitting him with the Elgin Bomb.
Elgin most recently wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he had worked since 2015. He did not re-sign with NJPW earlier this year, and his contract lapsed on April 1. His last match with the company saw him take part in a six-man tag, teaming with Colt Cabana and Toa Henare in victory over Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Shota Umino.
In his career, Elgin reigned for two and a half months in 2014 as ROH World Champion, and held the IWGP Intercontinental, NEVER Openweight, and NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team titles once each.
