We are back and Curtis Axel gives Sheamus and Cesaro a pep talk and he says if Braun wins tonight, he is the fifth man on the team at TLC.  It is in his home town.

Braun enters the room and Curtis says life is all about moments.  Curtis says his moment hinges on Braun.  If Braun loses, he isn't the only on one the sidelines.  Curtis says he is going to find Roman Reigns and fight him.

Braun tells him to do it.   Curtis says he isn't ready.  Cesaro says Curtis says he sounds afraid of Roman.  Sheamus says the fifth man of the team wouldn't be afraid of Roman.

Curtis says he is going to find Roman.

We take a look at what happened last week when Sister Abigail spoke to Finn Balor.

Finn Balor makes his way to the ring.

Finn says when Bray first introduced the world to Sister Abigail, he did not know what to think.  Is he out of his mind or did he outsmart us all?  Finn says he thought it was another trick or mind game.  Finn says he was wrong.  Finn says he read about the festival of Samhain when the dead would rise and walk the Earth.  After seeing Sister Abigail and feeling her presence, these were not stories and they were real.  Finn says he will slay the monster with a demon of his own.

Finn says his demon has no fear.  His demon dreams about nightmares.  His demon is dying to meet you, Sister Abigail.  Finn tells Bray to run.
