The match was incredible. Bobby had goosebumps. You have made a name for yourself. You have beaten Finn Balor and Samoa Joe. You are a two time NXT Champion. You call yourself the King of Strong Style. The fact is, you have no style. You walk around with half a haircut. You look like you are in the Thriller movie with Michael Jackson. You do that thing with your hands. Who are you?
Nakamura takes his mic and he tells Bobby-san, he know their paths would cross. You look like Shiba Inu. He says Bobby is a Japanese dog. Maybe your suit is too tight, but you change NXT as long as he is champion.
Bobby says everyone fears change. He tells Nakamura to wake up. They are not in Japan. They are not in the land of zero talent. He is in the ring with the biggest star on god's green Earth. He says he is the IT Factor. Bobby calls Nakamura a joke. He says he had an agenda. The people in the back are not wearing t-shirts and flip flops. The people in the crowd are changing their pathetic lives. In San Antonio, his agenda will be complete. He will silence Nakamura's fans and put the title where it belongs . . . around his waist.
