A vignette airs for Ember Moon. She will be debuting in Brooklyn.
Bobby Roode debuts
Bobby Roode makes his way to the ring sporting a suit as this is his first in-ring appearance on NXT TV. Phillips notes that Roode is a former world champion and is very familiar with Aries, Eric Young, and Samoa Joe (obviously). Roode says the wait is finally over. Roode enjoyed being at TakeOver: Dallas during WrestleMania weekend. He knew then that NXT was the perfect place for him to be.
Roode says we are all NXT. But to get to that next level... that's where Roode comes in. He says NXT and the fans need Bobby Roode. Now NXT has found "the man" in himself. Roode promises to take this company to the next level. Roode says presidents, vice presidents, and business men will replace the stupid people that sit in the crowd now. (He's heel). Roode goes on to discuss dressing like a superstar with his custom-made suits. And from this very moment forward, NXT will be glorious.
Next week, William Regal will host a contract signing between Bayley and Asuka.
