Back from commercial, we go to a vignette on Finn Balor. Balor says that we all have two sides to ourselves. Some people try to ignore their darker side, some are able to suppress it. The question is, should we choose to embrace the demon inside? Finn Balor arrives in Tokyo, Japan on July 4, live on the WWE Network.
We see a vignette on Dana Brooke, highlighting her impact in NXT since her debut a month ago. Dana says she is not only beautiful, not only a fitness professional, but she is multi-talented. After her second match, she was trending worldwide on Twitter. Dana says she is greeted by all these haters, but their boos is getting her to where she needs to be. Their negativity is what she feeds off of. Your words may hurt, but actions speak louder than words and these actions will hurt. Dana says she is the Total Diva and the Total Package. You may hate me, but I will be known for being the most inspiring, the most talented, the most driven female wrestler the world has ever seen, so do not forget that the Total Diva has arrived.

She’s the one walking around here with red hair now, it looks like her frickin’ head is on fire, OK, Bye Felicia!

If this was the Hunger Games, she wouldn’t last one night, alright, with the Sweet Boys, because they got a life expectancy of a snowman in the sun, we rep our district like a barbell, OK. If she grew up where we grew up, if they grew up where we grew up, send them to go live with Uncle Phil. How you doin’?
Big Cass says that the term “don’t take this the wrong way” as a zero percent success rate. But, Blake & Murphy, don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re cowards, you’re liars, you’re cheaters and quite frankly, you look ridiculous and this place would look a whole lot better if you weren’t around anymore and we are gonna take care of that next week. How you doin’?

Regal is interrupted by Bull Dempsey, who walks in, eating a bag of potato chips. Bull asks if Regal needed to see him. Regal says yes, he thinks Bull has a problem.
Bull says that if this is about earlier tonight, he can explain. I got a little tired and I was doing really well, up until the point that I lost, but I was up all night training, so I didn’t much sleep and I was really tired today, it will never happen again, I promise. (Bull continues to eat potato chips during this.)

Owens says on commentary that was an impressive first match for Joe, but not as good as his first match. Owens leaves commentary and stares down Joe, but Joe yells at Owens from the mic as Owens goes to leave.
Joe asks Owens where does he think he’s going? You see, unless my ears deceive me, you said that if stepped in this ring with you, you’d drop me just like that. But its funny, because when I stepped in this ring, you did what you are doing right now and you ran away. Owens grabs a mic as Joe says why doesn’t Owens do what he says he is, be a good man and get in this ring and give the world the fight they wanna see.
Owens says that first of all, I don’t really run anywhere. Second of all, there are two reasons why I’m not getting into the ring right now. The first is because I am a good man and I feel like dropping you after your very first match in NXT, would be very unpleasant for you, so you should thank me. The second reason is that see, you’re a bit of a rookie here in NXT, but as a veteran, let me tell you that you can’t just walk in here and get a NXT Title match right after one match. You have to earn those things and you simply haven’t done that.
NXT GM William Regal’s music hits and he makes his way onto the rampway. Regal says that he totally understands Owens, Joe definitely hasn’t earned the right to a title shot, but he has earned the right to fight. So next week, Kevin Owens, you will face….Samoa Joe.
Regal leaves as Owens is unhappy about his decision. Joe & Owens stare each other down as the show closes.
