Sam sends us to a video package for tonight’s NXT Title match.

— We go to Samoa Joe with Karrion Kross and Scarlett.  Joe asks about Takeover XXX when he won the title and he was told about his injury.  Kross says he was pissed.  He says he doesn’t feel the need to go through his entire career, but it took a long time for him to show up at that time.  For that injury to happen, he thought it was all for nothing.  Joe asks how can Kross recapture the title from someone thought to be the best of all time.  He will crush Balor.  Balor has technique and experience and Kross says Balor is the best champion of all time.  Balor will not control the pace of the match.

Joe asks Kross what he will be feeling if he wins tonight.  Kross says he came here to be a champion, not lost in the shuffle. Joe asks about Balor’s comments from last week and Kross says he does not care what he says.  Balor’s arrogance will be his downfall.  This is why he is in this position.  He is not changing anyting and Balor’s efforts will not work.

— Finn Balor sat down with Samoa Joe.  Joe brings up that Finn has a great record at Takeover and he says that he has a long streak for delivering at Takeover, but with a small blemish.  Joe asks if Kross is the type of man who can add a blemish to his record.  Balor says he has proven that he can stand and deliver.  If anyone has to stand and deliver it is not him.  Joe asks Balor how long it took him to get back to where he wanted to be after his injury.  Balor says he hated to give up his title.  It took a while for him to get his confidence back.  Is it too soon for Kross?  Joe brings up how Kross may have rushed his return.  Balor says underestimating Finn Balor is a fatal mistake.  He says he is in the peak of his career.

Joe asks Balor how will he defeat Karrion Kross.  Balor says he has faced big men and he will drag them into territories they don’t belong.  He will drag Kross into deep water and give him an experience he has never seen before.  Balor says he is pissed that he is considered the underdog against someone who is not proven.  How many times does he have to prove he is the best.  That is what drives him and where the fury comes from.

— Mickie James joins Sam and Jimmy to talk about the Women’s Tag Title match.  Mickie says there is another thing to fight for in the women’s division and the gold is the goal.  Sam asks what does Mickie see in Ember and Shotzi.  She says they are different but they fit together.  

— Sam asks Jimmy if there is a problem for Reed getting a title match the next day.  Jimmy says Bronson needs an old school mentality to be successful tonight.  Mickie says that Johnny has the advantage because Bronson wrestled last night.

Sam asks Jimmy what would he do in a ladder match.  He says he would work the leg since you need two legs to climb.  

We see William Regal taking Jordan Devlin’s title belt for the ladder match. Jimmy says that Devlin has a psychological advantage since he did not lose the title.  Arash says that Santos has been dominant as champion and he has Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza.  He took the division from the side show to the main show. Sam mentions that the ladder match will start off the special.

— Kyle O’Reilly sat down with Samoa Joe.  Joe asks Kyle what has changed for him.  He says it is tough to answer.  It has been a crazy year for him and everyone else.  He says he is having an internal struggle.  It felt good to be in the Undisputed Era.  It was championships, main events, limo rides, and merchandise checks.  Something had to give.  He strayed from the path that got him here and he could not recognize himself.  To save his soul, he had to get away from the gang mentality.

Joe says that Kyle’s recent behavior has not been better than a gang mentality.  Kyle says that Joe is right.  When it comes to Adam, you have to fight fire with fire.  If I have to sink to his level to gain an advantage, I am willing to do it.  Joe brings up the history and he wants to know when does it stop and when will he be satisfied.  Kyle says he has been struggling with this for a year.  Cole would make the decisions for him.  Kyle says he was in a lot of interesting positions and opportunities.  The main event of Takeover against Finn Balor.  I lost and I lost the rematch but I finally felt like myself.  I fought with honor and integrity.

Joe says honor and integrity are not part of an Unsanctioned match.  Joe asks if Kyle has what it takes to beat Adam Cole.  Kyle says he thinks he can.  He says he is not here to set expectations because this will be as one sided as it gets.  He wants to finish Adam as quickly and efficiently as possible.

— Adam Cole joined Samoa Joe.  Joe says he has followed Adam’s career and no matter the situation or pressure, he is calm and cool.  As of late, with Kyle O’Reilly, that poise has gone away and it is a personal rivalry.  Adam says he has known Kyle for 12 years.  They have traveled all over the world.  If it wasn’t for him, Kyle never would have made it to WWE.  This is personal.  Joe asks if this proves who the backbone of the Undisputed Era?  Cole says he was the success of the group.  The others were along for the ride.  Crossing him is a big mistake.

Adam says Joe should be asking Kyle about being reckless.  Kyle tried to run him off the road and got him arrested.  Kyle threatened to come to my home and find me.  What does victory look like for Adam Cole.  Cole says when Kyle has the realization after the match that he was given a beating like no one else could have given him and he thinks he shouldn’t have messed with Adam Cole. 

Joe asks if Adam and Kyle will be able to co-exist again.  Right now, it seems impossible.  If Kyle apologizes and believes his apology and realizes the type of moron and imbecile he has been.  He has to know he has an ass beating coming to him first.
