“Then… Now… Forever.”

A video package of highlights from last Saturday’s ‘NXT Takeover: Portland’ airs. Following that, we’re reminded of Velveteen Dream’s actions against Roderick Strong for the past 2 weeks which leads to a main event grudge match tonight.

“Shock… the System.” All of Undisputed Era makes their way to the ring and Adam Cole grabs the mic. “I told you! I told each and every one of you that obsession would never beat destiny. Undisputed Era is going to continue to set examples, just Roddy Strong is going to make one out of Velveteen Dream tonight!”

Velveteen Dream appears on the screen, telling Strong to keep his boys in the back and be a man, be the man Marina always wanted him to be. Strong tells Dream that he’s going to wish he never came back.


Mauro, Nigel and Beth take us to the ending moments of Adam Cole’s defense of the NXT Title against Tomasso Ciampa, with Johnny Gargano nailing Ciampa with the NXT Title belt.

“I’ve been trying so hard to get my life back but I seemed to lose grasp of my surroundings. There were subtle signs too. The odd timing of a tag-team reunion. I stopped listening to that instinctual voice inside. But if one thing goes hand-in-hand with Tommasso Ciampa and the NXT Championship it is, and always has been, Johnny Gargano. I’m not asking myself ‘Why, Johnny, Why’… I know why. Johnny knows why… and if one…”
