We start things off with the NXT Champion Bo Dallas and he has made his return to the building. The balloons come from the ceiling and there are streamers too. Bo puts on a party hat and enters the ring.
Bo says that there is no place like home. For those of you who have been keeping up with the Bo Dallas newsletter, he has been on the Bo versus the World Tour. The reception has been the same everywhere. Everybody loves Bo.
He wishes that everyone could have been there, but he has the next best thing. Bo says that he has a slide show of his tour.
We start off with Bo in Montreal. He says in Canada, they call their BoLievers, BoNucks. We see Bo in CamBOdia. He sports entertained in a sold out crowd of more than 300,000 against Justin Gabriel. Bo is in Liechtenstein, where they held a Bo Rally. Bo was with a fan called Norbit. He suffers from a debilitating illness, but when Bo hugged him, his health improved by 50%.

Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.
Bo asks Sami if he came for a cookie.
Sami says that he did not come for a cookie. It is nice to see his friend. It is nice to see the General Manager who suspended him.
John says that there was a reason why he suspended Sami. We have the face of NXT, Bo Dallas in a homecoming party and Sami interrupted the champion and the boss. He tells Sami to learn a bit of respect.
Bo says that he told Sami that.
Sami says that he did not mean any disrespect. He just wants to have the suspension lifted so he can take the title from that delusional cheeseball.
John tells Ricky-Bobby that you donâ€™t come out and apologize and then say what he just did. John says that he is thinking about suspending Sami forever.
John warns the crowd that if they do not stop with the cheeseball chants, he will suspend the crowd.
John says that Sami served his suspension so he will be reinstated.
Bo congratulates Sami, but he says that we already did this. He defeated Sami already. It is starting to seem like Sami is a sore loser.
Sami tells Bo not to patronize him. He has no problem working up from the bottom. The next time they are in the ring, he will take the title from Bo.
John says that opportunity is just a win away. He will have a Beat The Clock Challenge to name the new number one contender. Sami is in the Challenge and he will be wrestling tonight.
Sami welcomes Bo home and then he leaves the ring.
