Graves takes us back to London and Dallas. He brings up Balor admitting not being able to actually beat Joe - he just survived. Finn says that's exactly what happened. Finn has never been in a steel cage match, and maybe it puts him in an advantage. Joe says he has the advantage because he's been in a cage. Joe talks about Dallas where they were pulling him out of the ring due to medical reasons, but it just to save Balor.
Graves asks Balor if he knows the risk he is making putting his career on the line against Joe in a cage. Balor says he's living in the moment; the NXT Title is everything right now.
