Back from commercial, we go backstage where Tony Dawson is with Corey Graves. Graves says that he has had some ups & downs on NXT, but he has had ups & downs his entire life.

If you’re lucky, you get to break-through and if you break-through, you never have to look back. Graves says he has entered himself in the NXT Battle Royal in 2 weeks and at the end, he will stand tall and everyone else…….
All of a sudden, Graves is interrupted by Bray Wyatt. Wyatt says this whole thing is quite baffling. I can’t understand why you possibly want to play “cool guy” when this war is going on right outside your doorstep. If you don’t understand what I’m saying, you can ask Kassius Ohno, ’cause he knows. Just like Ohno, your time will come because whether you like to realize it or not, NXT belongs to the eater of worlds and the Wyatt Family.
