Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Solomon Crowe. Crowe says he already knows what Devin is gonna ask. I’m feeling pretty beaten, but it ain’t nothing that I haven’t felt before. Last week, Kevin Owens gave me a beating, but I don’t regret a single thing I did because I got a chance to speak my mind to the Champ, Kevin Owens, and it was well worth it. Samoa Joe, I don’t know why he did what he did, but he’s alright by me if he wants to go toe-to-toe with the Champ. Believe me, Devin, when I get back, I will be better than ever and I will, I WILL be back in the ring with the NXT Champion.
