Last week, we saw Samoa Joe address the NXT audience about what he has done and what type of man he had become. He wanted to apologize to NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, but it was a trap for Joe to attack Nakamura.
We are in Winter Park, Florida and your announcers are Corey Graves and Tom Phillips.
Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring and he has something in his hand as he prepares to speak.
Joe says he only saw it fitting that he come out this week to address the altercation that occurred last week with him and Shinsuke Nakamura. Unfortunately, because of his actions, your NXT Champion finds himself in quite a bad way. Because he is such a persuasive individual, Joe has a copy of the medical report. Joe reads from the report and it says that Nakamura has several visual contusions in his lower lumbar, severe inflamation in his elbow, a clavicle separation, and he separated his left shoulder to a grade 2 degree. Nakamura’s injuries will likely not require surgery, but it will require a significant amount of rest and rehabilitation for a period of 6 to 12 weeks.
Joe says some say patience is a virtue, but Joe says he is not a virtuous man. Joe demands that William Regal come out because he is not going to wait 9 or 12 weeks. He wants Regal to do what is right, even if it is give him his title back.
William Regal comes out and he says that piece of paper is correct. He says it might be another conversation over how you got that paper. Regal says he does not know what Nakamura’s current situation is. Regal says he will take care of this. The problem that Joe has caused, he will take care of.
Joe tells Regal he didn’t want it to come to this, and Joe walks up the ramp to Regal.
Joe tells Regal he is giving him an opportunity to fix this situation, see the light of day, and do what is right or your entire roster will look like this (as he shows the medical report to Regal). Joe walks to the back.
We take a look at Cedric Alexander and his match against Kota Ibushi. We also see Cedric and Triple H after the match.
