Sasha wonders what that is supposed to mean. Summer says for Sasha to wake up. I am on RAW & Smackdown every week, Summerslam was named after me, I am a WWE Diva. When was the last time you were even on NXT? Face it, you’re irrelevant. So instead of questioning me, you should be following me. Paige & Emma, they’re so popular around here. That’s fine, they can have that, because they will always be big, ugly fish in a small, little pond, while I’m “up there”. Why? Because I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get “up there”. Whether it be the popular decision or not. Summer says she hears Sasha has a match with Paige in 2 weeks. I’m sure it’ll be a nice, clean match and you’re gonna lose because you don’t have a backbone. If I were you, I’d find one and beat that witch down. Get it together, Sasha!

We go to the ring where Renee Young introduces Sami Zayn. Zayn makes his way to the ring. “Match of the year” chants by the crowd. Renee asks Zayn about last week’s match with Cesaro. Zayn thanks the crowd for their earlier chant. Zayn says he feels conflicted, because even though I heard good things about that match, all I think about is the end result and on that night, Antonio Cesaro was the better man. Renee asks Zayn what’s next for him as the crowd chants for one more match between Zayn & Cesaro. Zayn says he doesn’t know when he’ll face Cesaro again, but whenever he is, he’ll be prepared. But, I have to move forward. My focus is what everyone else’s focus is in NXT, except for you, Renee, because your job is to be a reporter and a general ray of shine for all of us. But my focus is to become the next NXT Champion.
Speaking of the champ, the music of NXT Champion Bo Dallas and he makes his way to the ring. “No More Bo” chants from the crowd. Bo says that just because a couple of people on the internet said that Zayn had a good match, doesn’t mean you are championship caliber. You lost, friend. They don’t interview the losing team at the Super Bowl, do they? No, because that would be depressing. They wanna hear “I’m going to Disney World!” Not “I’m so sad that I lost”. Sami asks Renee to leave, he will take it from here. Sami asks why Bo is out here, unless he wants to start something. Bo says he would love nothing more than to face Zayn, but unfortunately you injured me at Summerslam Axxess. I thought you were better than that. You’re a good kid, but you’re still so green. “OLE” chants by the crowd. Bo says Sami has a lot of work before you can become like me. Sami says does he mean the NXT Champion, or a delusional, crazy person, that has no perception of what the people around him think about him. Bo doesn’t know what Sami is talking about, everyone loves me. “NO” chants by the crowd. Sami says that the crowd is booing Bo outta the building. Bo says they aren’t booing him, its “BO.” Sami asks the crowd for clarification and the crowd chants “BOO”. Sami says Bo is scared and knows what he can do to him if the NXT Title is on the line. Sami asks if Bo is gonna give him an NXT Title shot, or are you scared?
Before Bo can answer, the music of the Real Americans hits and Zeb Colter makes his way onto the rampway. Zeb says that as a hard-working American, Bo Dallas, you don’t have to answer any question that illegal has to ask you? Hey Sami “ZOD”, or whatever your name is, if that is your real name. Me & Cesaro warned you that we would expose you for the fraud that you are. So if you want a title shot, why don’t you cough up some legal documentation that proves you are a legal citizen of this country, instead of what you really are, a border-crossing illegal, stealing our jobs from hard-working Americans. What its gonna be? Zayn says how about Colter gives a message to Cesaro. As soon as I become the NXT Champion, I will do everything in my power to get both of you deported to hell where you belong. Zeb says that sounds good, I offered you the easy way, seems like you want the hard way. WE THE PEOPLE!
All of a sudden, Jack Swagger attacks Zayn from behind. Bo Dallas leaves the ring as Zayn fights back. Swagger then hits Zayn with the Doctor Bomb. Swagger has the “Don’t Tread on Me” Flag and places it over Zayn. Swagger & Zeb stand over Zayn as we go to commercial.
