Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews CJ Parker about his loss to Mojo Rawley 3 weeks ago at NXT Arrival. Parker says he is shocked and sickened, but he is not talking about Mojo’ in-ring ability, he is talking about Mojo’s lifestyle choice. Mojo says it all the time, he doesn’t get hyped, he stays hyped and he’s right, Mojo does stay hyped on genetically modified, highly processed, empty calorie, fast foods. Mojo is the kinda guy that swings through a drive-thru, buys 10 double cheeseburgers, burps and throws the wrappers out the window. In one week, I am going to humainly dispose of Mojo Rawley. Parker has a garbage can and dumps a cheeseburger wrapper into the can.

Graves stands tall over Zayn, showing off his “stay down” knuckle tattoos as Zayn appeared to be out on the floor. Medics come out and look at Zayn’s pupils as it seems like the lights are on, but no one is home. Refs and medics help Zayn to the back.
Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Sheamus. Sheamus says it feels great to be back in NXT, where I started my journey in WWE a few years ago. Aiden English walks in and interrupts. English says he & Sheamus haven’t been properly introduced, my name is Aiden English, the man who is single-handedly using this company as a stepping-stone to the brighter lights of Broadway. Sheamus says its funny English is referencing stones because it sounds like English’s stones haven’t dropped yet. But, I will speak to my old friend JBL so that tonight, that problem is finally put to bed. See you out there, kid.
