We see video from last week when Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel attacked Sami Zayn after Zayn’s match with Gabriel with Adrian Neville making the save.
Backstage from after last week’s show, we see video of Neville & Zayn. Neville asks if Zayn is OK, then says it was real cheap what Kidd & Gabriel did. You guys think you are real clever, all you are is shameful. Zayn says with the way Kidd has been acting lately, I could say I was surprised, but its my fault, I should have seen that coming because the world is starting to see what kind of person he is. I’m just surprised Gabriel was so easy to brainwash, especially after going toe-to-toe with him for 20 minutes. But its OK, maybe I need to count on Adrian Neville, my friend, this isn’t the last they have heard of either of us.
Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Kidd & Gabriel. Gabriel says he made a choice last week not to be a loser anymore. I started in NXT and 4 years later, I find myself back here. That’s not a slag on NXT because the talent here is phenomenal. Take Neville & Zayn for instance, two fantastic talents, but they aren’t on my level. They don’t have the skill, the experience and definitely not the looks that I have. Kidd was right all along and it took one more lesson for me to realize that. Sometimes to get ahead in life, you have to break some rules. Devin goes to speak with Kidd, but Kidd & Gabriel walk off.

Cara celebrates his win afterward.
Backstage, Natalya walks up to Kidd and mentions that the interview he did last week was weird. Kidd says it wasn’t an interview, it was an ambush. Renee was trying to be cute by throwing out some funny questions. Natalya says it sounded like he was blaming her for losing to Neville. Kidd says he was simply stating facts, but he is sorry she felt that way. Natalya says she will support Kidd no matter what, but his attitude lately has been awful and I don’t wanna be a part of that. Kidd says it sounds like she doesn’t want to come to the ring with him tonight. He will go out to the ring tonight and if she doesn’t want to come out to the ring with him and hang out backstage, he’s cool with it, the choice is yours, make a good one.
Backstage, Summer & Sasha Banks are looking at themselves in the mirror. Summer says who would have thought she would be the #1 Contender. Sasha asks if Summer thinks she really deserved that. Summer says she did think about that and just because the BFFs are over, doesn’t mean you & I can’t hang out again. Sasha says that Charlotte said the same thing when she said the BFFs were over with. Summer tells Sasha to forget about Charlotte. Once I win the title, everyone will forget about her, too. Then when I win the title, you are gonna want to be best friends with me again, so I suggest you get used to the “Summer of Summer.”
CJ Parker makes his way to the ring. Parker has a mic and says he said some things last week that he is not very fond of. Xavier Woods, if you could please come out here. Xavier Woods’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Parker says he doesn’t want things to get out of hand between us. I had been gone for a while and last week was my return and I was a bit overzealous. I was a little overconfident, I had adrenaline pumping through my veins and I said some things that I shouldn’t have said and I’m sorry, I truly am. Woods says he wants to recap for everyone. You got too excited after your match last week and you decided to pop off like a 12-year old after your match, with me as the subject. You said it last week that I’m about to get my PHD, which means that I’m not an idiot. It also means that I use logic, which is lucky for you because logic is the only thing that is keeping me from ripping that rainbow-colored, birds nest off the back of your head. Parker says he told Woods that things don’t have to go down like this, I came out here to say sorry, to extend an olive branch, bury the hatchet. I wanna offer peace and I suggest that you accept it. Parker extends his hand and throws up the peace sign. Woods makes a fist and mocks Parker’s peace sign. Woods turns to leave, but Parker nails him with the side kick to the back of the head. Parker says it didn’t have to be like this and leaves a fallen Woods in the ring. Referees check on Woods as Parker leaves.
