While Beth, Vic, and Wade run through what is going to happen tonight, Kyle O’Reilly makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.
Kyle says you all saw what happened Sunday at Takeover. I keep replaying the moment over and over in my head trying to make sense of it and I can’t. I am shocked and confused. I am pissed off and I am disappointed. We were supposed to be unlike every other group that every came and went in this business. We were special and you ruined it for all of us. You kicked me in the face, but you also stabbed me in the back. The thing is, Adam, you are still my brother which is why I am giving you the benefit of the doubt. I need to know what happened on Sunday. I need you to come out and explain yourself. When you are done, I’m probably going to punch you in the face, but i am willing to hear you out.

Kai says she’s not the same person but if Baszler wants to find out, she will happily kick her head off. Fans cheer them on as MSK and Beth watch from the corner, eating popcorn. Gonzalez says a lot has changed since Baszler left as she doesn’t run the place, they do. Gonzalez mentions the title match will happen in two weeks and says they will make sure Baszler realizes who runs NXT at that time.
Jax calms everyone down and says she came here to honor Dusty as she had the privilege of working with him. She recalls Dusty saying, “Baby you are one big beautiful badass b—h!” She says Dusty was right, and she and Shayna are the most dominant force in WWE. Gonzalez says Dusty, God rest his soul, never met her. Shayna says either way, two weeks on March 3, they’re coming back to Dakota and Raquel’s home turf to humiliate them. The champs exit the ramp as their music hits. Gonzalez interrupts and says she’s going to shove her boot so far up “Nia’s hole” that she will never get it out.
