We are in Winter Park, Florida and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness, and Percy Watson.
Bobby Roode makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.
Bobby says for the second year in a row, Bobby Roode made Wrestlemania week simply glorious. He single handedly sold out the Amway Center. Fifteen Thousand people filled to the rafters because of him. On that night, he gave those 15,000 people the treat of a lifetime. He allowed them to sit there and bear witness to the biggest superstar in the business today.
He snuffed out the last flickering star from the old NXT. He proved that the fate and the future of this brand is in his control. The transformation of Bobby Roode’s NXT and his glorious era was finally complete.
That was up until last week when he had to sit at home and watch Shinsuke Nakamura walk down that aisle and get into his ring. Then one by one, NXT superstar after superstar came out to pay homage to Nakamura. You sang along and chanted his name. Bobby calls it pathetic.
Bobby says you saw everyone on that stage, but you did not see him. The champion was not there. You want to know why he didn’t stand there like a moron? He didn’t want to hear the crap coming out of Nakamura’s mouth. He did not want to hear the lies coming out of Nakamura.
He beat Shinsuke for the second time to retain his championship. He beat and embarrassed Nakamura so badly that he had to leave NXT. Bobby says it made him sick to hear the people chant for Nakamura.
Bobby says none of you in this arena deserve to be in his NXT. None of the people standing on the stage last week deserve to be in or belong in his NXT. From this moment on, you have two choices. You can choose to jump aboard Bobby Roode’s NXT or you can hit the bricks just like Shinsuke Nakamura.
Hideo Itami’s music interrupts and he makes his way to the ring.
