The show starts off with a video package looking at Samoa Joe assaulting Shinsuke Nakamura last week. Tom Phillips & Corey Graves welcome us to the show as Joe makes his way out to the ring.

Joe says he needs to address the altercation from last week. Our NXT Champion finds himself in a bad place. Joe reads Nak's medical report, which states that he has several visible contusions, severe inflammation, and separated his left shoulder. The injuries shouldn't require surgery, but will require an extensive period of rest upwards of 6-12 weeks. Joe says he will not wait 6 or 12 weeks, and demands William Regal to come out to address this situation.

Regal comes out. He says Nakamura isn't a normal kind of person, and isn't sure of the situation currently. Regal promises he will take care of this. Joe says he didn't want it to come to this as he exits the ring and stands in front of Regal. Joe says he's giving Regal the opportunity to fix this, or else the entire roster will face his wrath. Joe walks to the back as Regal looks shocked.

Phillips & Graves welcome us again as we are just getting started. We take a look back at the CWC, where Kota Ibushi beat Cedric Alexander in an "instant classic." Ibushi may have won, but Alexander was put over by the fans and Triple H himself.

Backstage, Cedric is asked about making his NXT debut tonight in the main event. Cedric says he's faced seven long years on the indie scene, being told no. Cedric asked for Regal for the very best, and tonight he has Andrade Almas.
