The announcers talk about the Kevin Owens versus Finn Balor match that will take place in Brooklyn.

We go to Michael Cole’s interview with Kevin Owens.

Michael brings up the contract signing with Finn Balor and how Kevin hit both Finn Balor and William Regal. Michael asks if the apology to William Regal was heartfelt. Kevin says that Michael is questioning his sincerity. Michael mentions that William said he hoped that Finn would beat Kevin in Brooklyn.

Kevin says kudos to William to make those comments behind his back. It takes a real man . . . a real man’s man. There is a problem there. William Regal runs NXT, so for him to openly say that he hopes that Kevin does not win, it is an issue for him. He does not want the NXT Title any more. He needs it. It reminds him of what he did to Sami Zayn. The title means more money in his bank account. He does not enjoy walking down the ramp, whether it is on Raw, Smackdown, or NXT without a title on his shoulder.

After what William Regal has said, and he is not a stand up guy. He would do whatever it took to get where he needed, and Kevin respects that. Who knows if Regal will put a crooked referee in the ring and have another Montreal Screwjob. . . even if it is in Brooklyn, but he is a Montreal boy. Kevin has thought long and hard and there is only one way to be guaranteed that does not happen. That is if you put the title up and put a ladder between Balor and I and see who can climb it first. No referee will stop him and William Regal will not screw him out of what is his.

Kevin says at Takeover, what he wants is a ladder match.

Michael says this could be alleviated if he can beat Finn Balor. Michael asks Kevin if he can beat the demon.

Kevin thinks about the question and he takes off his microphone and he hands it to Michael and leaves the ring and walks to the back.

We go to commercial.

We are back with Bull Dempsey looking at the video of himself and he tells himself he has to get in shape. We see Bull go into the gym and he sees people training. We are told that it will continue.

William Regal is in his office and Bayley enters. William congratulates her on her victory over Charlotte. Bayley says that she has been on a roll lately and since she beat Charlotte, she feels that she could have an NXT Women’s Championship match. Regal says that she deserves a match but there is someone else who deserves one. Next week, you will be in a Number One Contender Match against Becky Lynch with the winner facing Sasha at NXT Takeover in Brooklyn.

William tells Bayley that she is his niece’s favorite.

We are back and we have a video package for the man known as Uhaa Nation. He says the day he got into wrestling, he knew this is where he wanted to be and he wasn’t going to stop until he got there. NXT is the place to be. He doesn’t expect everything to be given to him. He came to be champion and be the best.

Finn Balor is with Byron Saxton for an interview. Byron asks Finn how it feels to be champion. He says it has been an emotional year. They are all working with the same goal. They believe that they are redefining this industry and to be the champion of this brand is a huge honor. Byron mentions the match in Brooklyn, but Byron brings up the contract signing.

Byron asks Finn about Kevin hitting William Regal. They came into NXT together. At the beginning they were friends, but Kevin’s actions clearly led to him not being surprised at what Kevin did. Kevin has continuously defied authority and has shown no class and no respect. The fact that he struck William Regal was of no surprise to him.

Byron asks Finn about Kevin’s comments about everything he does being for his family. Finn says he is a man of actions and Kevin is a man of many words, but whether he backs them up with actions is uncertain. You can talk the talk, but you have to walk the walk. He does not believe anything that Kevin says.

Byron brings up Kevin injuring Sami Zayn and whether it affects his preparation for the match. Sami has talked to him about Kevin and he has helped Finn and encouraged him not to underestimate Kevin Owens. He could seek revenge for what Kevin did to Sami or what he said about Finn being the underdog. Finn says he has to be focused.

Byron mentions Kevin’s suggestion that this match be made a ladder match.

Finn says that Kevin likes to talk and is a man of many words. He is not surprised that Kevin has tried to up the ante. Kevin says that Tokyo was a fluke, but he will show Kevin that Tokyo was not a fluke and the result in Brooklyn will be the same.

Byron asks Finn what can they expect from him in Brooklyn. Finn says that there will be a renaissance.

Byron asks if the Demon will appear in Brooklyn. Finn says that remains to appear, but Kevin Owens will find out that night.
