We see photos of the Kevin Owens versus John Cena match from Money in the Bank.

Devin Taylor is with Samoa Joe in the interview area. She asks Joe if Kevin Owens is the reason why he is here. Joe says he prided himself on competing on the cutting edge in places that were going to take over. That is NXT. Joe says he does not like Kevin Owens. Kevin makes statements through intimidation. He likes to show what he is capable of if they face him. Intimidation is a tactic of the weak, the cowardly, and a man who does not want to fight.

To the prize fighter tonight, he will make his own statement. He will walk into the ring and beat down Kevin Owens unmercifully.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a video package about Finn Balor, the current Number One Contender.

Finn is asked who is Fergal Devitt. He says Fergal Devitt is a boy from Ireland who grew up in a seaside town with three brothers and a sister. His parents are still married. Becky Lynch says he got his work ethic from his father. Fergal talks about his mother being a housewife and how his father worked from the bottom to the top and it is an inspiring story for him.

He says the WWE would be on television on Saturday mornings and he saw The Ultimate Warrior and the Undertaker. Professional wrestling was a huge part of his childhood. He would say that he wanted to be a wrestler when he was in school. He says that he was the dark sheep to pursue wrestling. Wrestling was something that he had to do. Normal was never going to be good enough. He says he was going to get into wrestling somehow.

Becky says that Fergal was born to do this.

We see footage from Insane Championship Wrestling.

He was focused on being the best technical wrestler so he could go to the gym in Ireland to help build the Irish wrestling scene.

Becky says there would be no Becky Lynch without Fergal. Becky says that Fergal was the person who changed her life. She starts to cry and she says that if he never opened that school, she would never be living her dream right now. He is the reason why she is here. He saved her life and she cannot thank her enough.

Becky says that she lied about her age when she started. She says that she found out there was a school that was going to open in Ireland.

Fergal says that he was not in a position to teach people at his age.

Becky says that he was 20 when he started teaching and he had faith in her.

Fergal says that Becky had it when she walked in the door. She needed to get it out of her. To see where Becky is from where she started, it was amazing.

Becky says that he is the most humble person and you knew he would be a star. She says he was born for this and everyone wanted to be like him.

Fergal says it wasn’t about money, fame, or success. It was about fine tuning the craft of wrestling. He says that the President of New Japan saw one of his matches and he was invited to train in the New Japan Dojo in Tokyo.

He says it was difficult to leave his life and friends behind, but he needed a new challenge. It was something he wanted to do and had to do. He wanted to prove he was good enough.

She says she is back which is perfect for her fans, but not for Charlotte. The last time she faced Charlotte, she left her laying in the middle of the ring. Charlotte is being replaced by the Total Diva. Some people earn their way into NXT while others use their family to get into the door. She tells Charlotte not to misunderstand.
