Backstage, Tyler Breeze says that to be a champion , you need to be determined, willing to do whatever it takes to win and most importantly, be gorgeous. Tyson Kidd, Sami Zayn, boring much. First off, you are both Canadian and its scientfitly proven that Canadians lack the ability to be super good-looking, its a country full of Michael Sera's. You two are about respect and when you have respect, you draw the line at how far you will go to win. Me on the other hand, I don't have that problem, I will do what it takes to get what I want. All's fair in love and triple threats, Prince Pretty out!

Bo shows JBL letters from the "Bo-lievers" that are demanding that Bo get another shot at the NXT Title and I told them on my hotline that it just wouldn't be fair, but I'm afraid that if nothing is done, that these letters will come pouring into JBL's office as well. JBL says that would be a tragedy, we should take these letters to CJ Parker and recycle them so we can save the Amazon, the rainforest, all that stuff. Bo, I'm not gonna give you something you don't deserve, you had your shot in the battle royal and you didn't win. However, if you beat your next opponent, I'll give you a title shot, fair? Bo says that sounds great. JBL says he loves guys like Bo who are gamblers, so if you lose, you leave NXT for good, that's a match with some real stips. Bo asks who his opponent will be. JBL says he will give Bo five guesses. Bo answers with John Cena, but JBL says its Big E. Bo says that's great because I beat Big E to win the NXT Title. Bo shakes JBL's hand and leaves the letters with him before walking off.
