We are back and Dexter Lumis is coming.

NXT North American Champion Keith Lee makes his way to the ring and Jon Quasto is in the ring with him.  Keith is asked about his defense against Cameron Grimes and the attack by Damian Priest and his response against Dominik Dijakovic.  Keith says he had a competitive match against Cameron Grimes.  He won, then he raised his hand and title in the air but he was attacked from behind.  Little did he know that person was Damian Priest.  When he raised his head, he saw the man he thought attacked him holding the title.  Keith says he owes Dominik Dijakovic an apology.

Dominik Dijakovic makes his way to the ring.  

Dominik tells Keith he doesn't give a damn about the apology.  All he cares about is that title.  He says he would never attack Keith from behind because he has more respect for Keith than Damian.  You did attack me and took food off my family's plates.

Damian Priest makes his way out and he asks Dijakovic how is the knee.  He says a nightstick to a back the size of yours still hurts.  Damian says his eyes are on that prize because it is going to give him what he wants.  More money, more women, more legacy, and more fame.  We know that his name will live forever but he needs that title.

Keith says that Damian wants to live forever, but the person you attacked means that you won't live forever.  You can both quarrel over the title but the fact is that the champ is right here.

Damian says it is time you don't stand any more.

Lee is pushed out of the way and Dijakovic goes after Priest.  Lee sends Dijakovic to the mat and then Lee goes after Priest but Dijakovic with a plancha onto Lee and Priest.

Triple H is in the ring and he says in NXT, there has been no greater rivalry than Johnny Gargano versus Tommaso Ciampa.  It is a rivalry that has sparked . . . 

Tommaso Ciampa's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Ciampa says he has been here for five years and everything that had to be said has been said and what has been done has been done.  He wants Johnny to come out.

Hunter says that there will be no physicality tonight.  Hunter tells Johnny to come out.

Johnny says Hunter has lost his mind if he thinks he is going to get into the ring with Ciampa after what he did.  Johnny says he does not know why he is being fined because of what Ciampa did.  

Hunter asks Johnny if nothing was his fault.    He says if it was up to Regal, he would have fired both of you.  There will be no physicality tonight.  He is not asking Johnny to get into the ring ,he is telling him.  He tells Tommaso not to touch Johnny and Johnny repeats the order.

Hunter says this has gone on long enough between the two of you.  He can understand where you are.  He has done it with Shawn.  There will come a time in your life when all of that will be put aside.  You will realize there is more in your life than what happens in the ring.  It has to end.  He can't have you tearing up buildings or endangering people.  You are right where it should end.  It should happen on the biggest stage.

Johnny says this was supposed to end last year but you broke your neck.  Johnny says he wishes he was the one to break his neck.

Ciampa says bigger things have been going on in his world.  He broke his neck and he gave away his life.  He is telling them that THIS needs to end.

Hunter says after everything you have done, it deserves to be on the biggest stage.

Johnny says all they need is a ring, a referee, and a camera guy.

Ciampa says this is about who is the face of NXT.  Johnny says it is him.  He will make Ciampa realize what kind of monster he is.

Hunter says if you don't need a crowd or an arena, he will give them the opportunity.  When do you want it?

Johnny says Ciampa put him through a table.  Johnny says he needs two weeks.

Hunter says in two weeks, he will find an empty building and put a ring in there with a referee to say when it is over.  Two will walk into the building, but only one will walk out.  If it continues after that, then neither of you will be here.  You won't have to worry about being the heart and soul of NXT because NXT will go on without you.  You will get a message in two weeks where to go. 

Ciampa says in two weeks, NXT goes on without Johnny Wrestling.  

Johnny says you will know that Johnny Gargano is the better man, the better wrestler, and the better everything.
