Triple H checks on him as the trainer thinks it was his knee cap. Matt Bloom and Kassius Ohno are standing there as well. Ohno tells Nakamura that it sucks.
As for the new champion - Roode is baffled by the interviewer's question about Nakamura's Kinshasa. Roode says he'll let it slide since she's new. He did exactly what he said he was going to do. Bobby Roode's NXT era has begun... and it will be glorious.
Roode will have a glorious celebration next week.
