The announcement video starts with Enrique Cedeño, popularly known as xPeke, the founder and owner of Spanish-based team Origen.

xPeke is just peacefully taking a warm bath in his own tub, scrubbing and submerging into the bubbles when suddenly a hyped-up voice over comes into his mind to describe the state of his leisurely activity.

"Real question is, though, how long before he subs himself back into the main roster?"

This question suddenly alarmed xPeke and to his surprise, caster/host Daniel Drakos joins him into the bath tub.
