NXT General Manager William Regal knew that the contract signing between NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Samoa Joe was going to be intense, but he couldn’t have imagined it going down like this.

The King of Strong Style joined Regal and a fleet of security guards in the ring for the proceedings, but they were not joined by Joe. The submission specialist started to approach the squared circle, but instead walked back through the curtain and returned, dragging a table to the top of the stage, where he would sign his name on the contract.

After taunting the NXT Champion, Joe demanded that Regal bring the contract to him. Regal relented, reluctantly walking up the ramp to get the disrespectful challenger’s signature. Back in the ring, Nakamura found himself surrounded by six security guards as he stepped toward Joe. The King of Strong Style dropped the contract on the canvas and battered all six guards in quick fashion, putting the last one through the table with a vicious powerbomb. Having sent a clear message to Samoa Joe, Nakamura then put his name on the dotted line, setting the stage for what promises to be one of the most brutal bouts in NXT history.
