The Wolf Dogs Championship Celebration

Bron Breakker: Wow, man, if you’d thought that, back in September at No Mercy, when you and I were beating the hell out of each other, remember that? We would be standing out here today with our alligator skin boots, and new NXT Tag Team Championships.

Baron Corbin: Yes, yes, yes. Hey, I remember No Mercy like it was yesterday because didn’t I beat you?

Bron Breakker: It’s not funny.

Baron Corbin: It’s a little bit funny.

Bron Breakker: Alright, you know what? You wouldn’t be standing here today with the belt around your waist if it wasn’t for me carrying this team.

Baron Corbin: Listen, if I remember right, I did set you up pretty nicely. I was like, boom, End Of Days, right here in the middle of the ring.

Bron Breakker: You set me up with The End Of Days. And I hit The Spear. The Spear Of Days?

Baron Corbin: I love it. Look at this, a couple of a-holes standing here in the middle of the ring, with brand new hardware, and we are good with being the new tag team champions.

Andre Chase: Hold on, just a second. Now, you might not care who your next challengers are, but we certainly do. Should I spell it out for you?

Duke Hudson: We got to hand it to you boys, beating several other teams to win The Dusty Cup, winning the NXT Tag Team Titles, that is not easy. But guess what? Chase University is back at one hundred percent. And it’s Chase U’s time to shine.

Bron Breakker: You guys can take your school spirit, and your calendars, and shove them up your asses.

Andre Chase: Easy, Duke, because what I think we have right now is a teachable moment. You see, the formers champs promised us a shot at those NXT Tag Team Championships, and we’re not taking no for an answer.

Duke Hudson: So, Wolf Dogs, we’re going to have our tag team title match, and we’re going to give you an Andre Chase University Sized Ass Whipping.

Nathan Frazer: No, no, no, I don’t think so, pal. That’s not how this works. Yeah, hate to break it to you, Mr. Chase, but that agreement you had with the former champions, yeah, null and void. That, my friend, that’s the hard hitting home truth.

Axiom: Yeah, and in case you don’t remember, we were closest to beat Bron and Corbin out of any of other tag teams in The Dusty Cup. So, if there’s anyone that deserves a chance, it’s us.

Nathan Frazer: And these two wanted to jump us from behind two weeks ago. And trust me, you will pay for that, you piece of shit.

Duke Hudson: Oh, okay, I don’t know who invited you to the ring, but seriously, you guys, it was good to see you, but grab a ticket, get to the back of the line, because the future two-time NXT Tag Team Champs, we are going to place the Chase U Flag firmly where it belongs.

Baron Corbin: Hey, listen, this sounds like a you guys problem, and the new tag team champions, we got stuff to do, and places to be, so why don’t you guys take your little problems and go tell it to someone who cares.

AVA: Baron, Bron, you’re right, it’s not up to you to decide who your next challengers are going to be, that’s up to me. But it’s so easy when I see two very deserving tag teams right in front of me. So, I think it should be Nathan and Axiom against Chase U to decide exactly who the number one contender is for the NXT Tag Team Championships. And I also decided that, that match is going to happen, tonight.

– Kelly Kincaid had a backstage interview with Roxanne Perez. Roxanne says that Wren shows a lot of promise, and she sees a lot of herself in her. Being happy to be here just won’t cut it. You will see other superstars get opportunities that you deserved. Roxanne continues to complain about getting passed up. Along the way, you become callous to other people’s feelings and realize that only person that can make you happy around here is yourself.

Carmelo Hayes Promo

Trick, you see where I’m at. This is where it all began. Trick Melo Gang. Good memories. Great moments. But here I am, all alone, and I’m not lonely. Let’s talk about it. I’m here with my pride, knowing my principles are still intact, knowing the fact that I didn’t have to snake my boy out of his spot. I didn’t get too big for my own boots. It’s a shame because you played your role so well. I wanted you to experience everything that came with being a top guy. Because you were my boy, I wanted to lift you up with me. This is how you repay me? By being the number one guy in NXT. Hey, you could’ve been number five, number three, and just because you were my boy, I would’ve allowed you to be number two, but you wanted to come for the one of one. And when you come for the one of one, you realize that Melo ain’t second to nobody, unless you stand next to me.

I let you put Trick before Melo in The Trick Melo Gang just to amuse you. The whole time I was just amusing myself thinking that you would be ahead of me in anything. To stay at the top, you have to be ruthlessly ambitious, you have to have that killer instinct. Do you think that I’m stupid? You thought I didn’t see the signs. I knew you wanted to have your shine sooner or later, Trick. I saw you side-eyeing my championship. I felt the envy with every accomplishment. I am your biggest competition, so I knew, sooner or later, unfortunately, I had to get you before you got me. So, Trick, wherever you’re at, stay there, because your 15 minutes are up. Now, back to business. Ilja, you want to see me? Get in line, because if you ain’t talking about that NXT Championship, there’s nothing to talk about.

Ilja Dragunov Promo

Carmelo Hayes, since day one, I saw right through you. The jealousy of your best friend consumed you. And you pointed the finger at me? You’re the complete opposite of me. You are a coward. Attacking Trick from behind and doing the exact same thing to me. Melo, you are the lowest form of life, a rodent emerging from under my foot. I have what you seek. But I will see you at Roadblock, under one condition. Show up next week, face-to-face. Melo, come for this championship, because I’m coming for something more important. Your soul.
