Backstage, Sami Zayn says he feeling pretty good about his match tonight with Titus O’Neil. Titus should be a monster for all intents and purposes and he should be a threat, to some extent he is, but in the same breath, this is a guy who is currently embroiled in a battle with a bunny. So, now he wants to come to NXT to use it as a proving ground, then wants to get involved in a title match with Neville, I felt the need to not only defend NXT, but to stand up for my friend, Neville.
