We start things off with highlights of Ciampa turning on Gargano at TakeOver Chicago as well as Ciampa’s promo afterwards. I had forgotten how angry I was at Ciampa, but this video package did the trick and my hatred came rushing back. Johnny Gargano will be here tonight!
We also see footage from last week of sad Roderick Strong hugging his mom and his fiancee after his loss to Bobby Roode in his championship match.
No opening theme song video this week since we go right to Full Sail for action!

After some hype for tonight’s main event and the opening video package we get Nigel McGuinness introducing us to the latest addition to the NXT commentary team: Mauro Ranallo. AW YE YE!

NXT has some new theme music this week. It’s pretty generic core of some sort. It kind of reminds me of the old Raw is War theme song. Anyway we’re back in Orlando after spending some time out in Chicago for TakeOver and a more or less disposable episode of NXT last week that saw the debut of The Velveteen Dream and little else. Let’s get down to the ring for action talking!
