Zayn signs the contract, then cuts a promo on Owens about their long friendship and says he should have seen Owens turning on him, but he didn’t, so at Takeover, I will beat the hell outta you. Owens goes to sign the contract, but then Owens says what he did to Zayn at R Evolution wasn’t personal, it was business because he has said that he will fight anyone and everyone, but for a prize. Zayn isn’t the prize, the NXT Title is the prize, because it means more money and a better life for he, his wife and his two children. So, if they want the match, they can have it when the contract says its for the NXT Title. Regal tries to explain to Owens, but then Zayn says Regal has to make it for the title. Its what Owens wants, its what he wants, its what the fans want, so Regal, make this match for the NXT Title. Regal finally agrees and Owens signs the contract.
