Show opens with video highlighting the match between Kevin Owens & Alex Riley last week that concluded with a pull-apart brawl between Owens & Sami Zayn, with Owens showing fear for the first time since debuting in NXT.
We see the usual intro, then the music of Kevin Owens hits as he makes his way to the ring. Owens grabs the mic and cuts a promo on Sami Zayn, challenging him to come out. Instead, NXT GM William Regal came down to the ring. Regal says that Owens doesn’t get to do whatever he wants. Sami Zayn then comes out and pleads with Regal to make a rematch between he & Owens.

Bliss is upset, but then Blake & Murphy come back in and check on her.
Sami Zayn is in NXT GM William Regal’s office, about to sign the contract for his match with Kevin Owens, when Alex Riley storms in and demands another match with Owens.
