Sami Zayn’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. “OLE” chant by the crowd for Zayn. Zayn says he appreciates the crowd’s chants. The reason I’m coming out is here is that last week, fair and square, to Titus O’Neil and to be honest, I’m getting a little sick of that. I’m a little sick of just coming out here and saying that, I’m better than that, I know I’m better than that and I’ve proven that time and time again in this building, in front of you people. Now, its time for Sami Zayn to refocus and go after the one thing that’s eluded me since I’ve been here and that’s become the NXT Champion!
Tyson Kidd’s music hits and he makes his way onto the rampway, wearing a Sami Zayn t-shirt. Kidd says that its time for Zayn to start facing facts and the fact is, you will never be NXT Champion. Any chance of have, you squander. Every opportunity, you drop the ball. Now, you’re gonna come out here and not only lie to me, but you’re gonna lie to the NXT Universe, my people and you’re gonna pretend that you’re gonna turn your career and all of a sudden, somehow, some way, today begins the era of Sami Zayn actually winning?
Zayn says that he has no problem with Kidd coming out here, interrupting me and ranting on me. I just have one question, though, did you get Nattie’s permission before coming out here? Why don’t you go back home and cry yourself to sleep like you do every night while you’re watching yourself on reruns of Total Divas?
Kidd says sick burn, Zayn, but I would rather be on Total Divas than be a total loser like you. Sure, you’re gonna get moral victories, you’re gonna win matches here and there, but anytime you get close to the top of the mountain, you fall off. Let’s take last week for example, Titus O’Neil vs. Sami Zayn, what happened? You lost, AGAIN. You know what? Maybe, just maybe, you’re not good enough to be here, but don’t worry, there’s hope for you. You can make some cash selling these sweet t-shirts, or maybe you can sell pictures of yourself losing to other famous superstars. You are the most pathetic person I’ve met in my entire life.
Zayn says that Kidd likes to talk about the past a whole lot, I don’t live in the past, I live in the now and the now begins Sami Zayn’s Road to Redemption and I’m not only good enough to be here, I’m good enough to beat you and I’ll prove it, tonight! Go to the back and borrow Tyler Breeze’s cellphone, call Nattie and make sure that’s OK, alright.
Kidd asks why Tyler Breeze would have Nattie’s number? This isn’t about my wife and as long as Regal is fine with it, you know I am, but, I have to go make a few phone calls, have to go check on my cats, so later tonight, I’ll see you in this ring and the “Sami Zayn Road to Redemption” hits a roadblock, FACT!

But don’t get it twisted, I’m never gonna forget who did this to me. That’s why I’m coming back with the vengance, with the rage, because I stay hyped.

Unlike you and Bayley, who wanna be nice and shake people’s hands. Where’s that gonna get ya? Nowhere. You lost twice now to Charlotte now it is? Twice?

Well Titus, I’m not intimidated. Your bark may be loud, but I guarantee you that my bite is certainly worse. So next week, when you come to NXT, I will stand across the ring from you, I will not budge an inch and I will say that this is NXT, I am Adrian Neville and you will not leave here NXT Champion.
