This was the second Unforgiven event to take place within the WTX Universe, it was the follow up to June event Over the Limit, which was hosted exclusively by RAW, and is followed by SummerSlam in August. It is the first and last event to have been hosted by ECW in its initial 2015 run.
The show featured eight matches, the first being for the Television Championship, which featured RAW superstars facing off against each other as champion Big E faced Wolfe. The second match was for the NXT Tag Team Championship, after a series of matches between the champions Son of Havoc & Vance Archer, and the reunited team of The Miz & John Morrison, a championship match was made for the Unforgiven event. The third match was a rematch between Christian and Ezekiel Jackson for the ECW Television Championship, as Jackson, the first champion, lost to Christian over a month ago, having only held the championship for a week. The fourth match was the NXT Women's Championship Match, putting the champion Michelle McCool against both, the former champion Maryse as well as recent breakout star Melina in a Triple Threat.
The fifth match put the ECW World Tag Team Championship on the line for the first time, as The Flock faced off against the team of Bully Ray & Bull Dempsey for the championship. In the sixth match, Seth Rollins was scheduled to defend his Intercontinental Championship for a second time, facing off against recent named contender Bret Hart, who had just returned. The first world championship match put the ECW Championship at stake, with Stone Cold having his first defence against both Kane and Razor Ramon, who had quickly become the top stars of the new ECW brand. In the main event, it was the longest reigning NXT Champion Batista, scheduled to face The Great Destroyer, who looked to end Batista's record 217 day reign.

In the second match, Son of Havoc & Vance Archer retained the NXT Tag Team Championship against The Miz & John Morrison. The third match featured another title retention, with Christian defeating Ezekiel Jackson to continue his win streak as ECW Television Champion.
