Samoa Joe’s demolition of the NXT roster began
With the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic on the roster’s mind, reigning NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival were out to show why they are the “top guys” when it comes to tag team competition. However, the champions’ scheduled contest against the debuting duo of twin brothers Gabriel & Uriel Ealy never started, as Samoa Joe stomped right past Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder and steamrolled over the towering twins. The Revival backed away as soon as a furious Joe glared their way, allowing the carnage to continue.
The submission specialist declared the Ealy brothers the first two victims of Regal’s indecisiveness regarding the NXT Championship. Joe minced no words, warning Regal and the NXT roster that the beatdowns would continue until one of two things happened. “Bring me Nakamura or hand me my championship,” he roared before hurling one of the Ealys into the steel ring steps to make his message crystal clear.
