By Richard Trionfo on 2018-06-06 20:57:00

We are at Full Sail University and your announcers are Nigel McGuinness, Percy Watson, and Mauro Ranallo.

Shayna Baszler makes her way to the ring and she has her title belt with her after what Nikki Cross did with it last week.

Shayna says last week she showed the entire locker room through Dakota Kai that when you step into the ring with her you are going to be hit with a hard dose of reality.  She says that she is tougher, stronger, and better.  The strong will always defeat the weak.  There has always gotta be one.  Someone who doesn't believe the laws are for her and that Nikki Cross.  That will not happen again.  If you want to get in the ring again and disrespect her . . . 

Nikki Cross' music plays and she makes her way to the stage.  Nikki walks to the ring and she is ready for a fight.  Nikki gets on the apron but Shayna backs up to the opposite ropes.  Nikki enters the ring. 

Shayna tells Nikki if she ever pulls a stunt like that again.  Don't let it get twisted in that mind of yours, Shayna reminds Nikki that she is the NXT Champion.  The only place you are better than her is in that corner of your brain.  Shayna wants to know what is wrong with Nikki.  Is she crazy?

Nikki nods at the suggestion.

Shayna says if she pulls that again, she can put Nikki to sleep in a heartbeat.  Shayna throws the mic to Nikki.

Nikki tells Shayna to do it.  She repeats herself and Shayna does not know what to do.  Nikki begs Shayna to do it.  

Shayna tells Nikki that she is the champion. 

Nikki forces Shayna to flinch and then Shayna pushes Nikki.  Nikki with a Thesz Press and punches.  Nikki with another Thesz Press and punches.  Nikki with forearms in the corner and she kicks Shayna.  

Nikki looks at the title belt and Shayna punches Nikki as Nikki goes for the belt.  Shayna sends Nikki to the floor.  Nikki with a forearm from the apron and then Nikki with a cross body.

You did what people thought was unthinkable.  Your actions last week do not affect his reality.  You succeeded in showing him what lies ahead in Chicago.  Next week, your reality will fade to black.

We are reminded of the NXT Tag Title Match at Takeover Chicago as well as the match between Ricochet and Velveteen Dream.

Ricochet says that his name was linked to a guy who just did a lot of flips.  He has had to change his game.  He has scraped and clawed his way to the top of every company he has been in during his 15 year career.

Dream says that being the One and Only means you are blessed.  Dream says he is blessed.  When you are truly blessed, you don't need to struggle.  You have IT.  Every word they say and every gesture, you are hooked.  Ricochet is good, but can he make them feel it?

Dream has no memory of being eliminated from Tough Enough.

Riochcet says he was not handed anything, he earned his contract.

Last week, Johnny Gargano came out uninvited and interrupted a match because it is all about Johnny Gargano.  

Ciampa says that Johnny had to announce to the entire world that he signed his contract for the Street Fight at Takeover.  Johnny Wrestling has become Johnny Badass.   Ciampa says anything to take attention from the fact that you almost crippled your wife two weeks ago.  You know what the best part is?  It is that this is on you.  You brought your wife to the ring with you and you challenged him to a fight.  Ciampa says he was minding his own business.  When the little blondie begged, you attacked him.  Ciampa says all he did was defend himself.  

The truth hurts Johnny and he knows that.  What you should have done is listen to your wife.  Now it is all on you.  You should listen.  June 16, 2018, Takeover Chicago . . . Don't show up.  Ciampa promises that this whole Gargano Fairy Tale is coming to an end and it will not be a happy ending.  Your wife is broken, you will be broken.  Ciampa says he wins.
