We are back and Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring and he has something to say.
Sami says that he is not proud to come out here to tell everyone how many times he has watched his two-out-of-three falls match with Antonio Cesaro. He is not proud to talk about the amount of sleep that he has lost watching the match and obsessing over the little details. He is about moving on to the next challenge, but he is stuck on a moment. He cannot pinpoint that moment.
He was a breath away from winning the most important match of his career but he cannot figure out where he went wrong.
Antonio Cesaro’s music plays and he comes out. He tells Sami to stop. It is starting to sound pathetic. He wants to answer Sami’s last question. There was never a moment. There was no breath, there was no second. There was nothing that Sami could have done to make a difference. That match was always his to win. He tells Sami to get over it because he is better than him.
Sami is obsessing with this match. Antonio has a few facts for Sami. He is better than Sami. It does not mean that Sami won’t have a great career. He will have a great career . . . down here. He can beat any competitor he wants, but Sami cannot beat him.
Antonio tells Sami to get over it and he tells Sami that if he continues to watch their match, it will be a crystal ball of his entire career . . . close, but not cigar.
Sami thanks Dr. Cesaro for that Freudian analysis of his inner psyche. He knows Antonio well and it goes beyond their time in NXT. Sami says that he has always respected Antonio. He is a workhorse and a true competitor. He is on Raw, Smackdown and live events all over the world. Antonio is here when he does not have to be here because he is a true competitor.
Sami says that Antonio will fight anyone, any time, and anywhere, but Antonio will not fight him again.
Antonio wants to know how many more times he has to beat Sami to get him to realize that he is better.
Sami tells him just one more time. If Antonio wins, it will only prove to Antonio that he is better than Sami. Maybe it will go down differently and maybe Antonio is afraid because they each bring out the best in each other. Maybe Antonio’s best cannot beat Sami the next time.
Antonio asks Sami how his little knee is.
Sami says that the knee is fine.
Antonio says that he is asking if Sami’s knee is medically cleared.
Sami says that his knee will be fine so he does not have to ask him.
Antonio wants Sami to give him his word that if he accepts this match that Sami will not make any excuses when he beats him again.
Sami says that Antonio has his word and he offers his hand.
The crowd chants for a ‘pinkie promise’ and Antonio says that his answer is still no. Antonio kicks Sami and leaves the ring.
Triple H’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage.
Hunter tells Cesaro that maybe he doesn’t want this match, but the people do. Hunter says that more importantly, he wants this match. While it does not seem like Sami’s knee is 100% right now, he has it on real good authority that it will be by February 27th. That means that on February 27th, Antonio Cesaro will face Sami Zayn. That is what is best for business.

Match Number Three: Tye Dillinger versus CJ Parker
They lock up and Parker with a hammer lock but Dillinger with a drop toe hold into a front face lock. Dillinger with a hammer lock and Parker with a snap mare and back senton. Parker with an airplane spin and then he sets for the Third Eye and connects for the three count.
Winner: CJ Parker
After the match, Parker gets on the mic and he wants to know why the people don’t love him. He asks them if they know what he does for them and their world. He reuses and recycles. He is a guy who scoots around in a fuel efficient 2013 Ford Fiesta that gets 40 miles to the gallon. He cares about Mother Earth. The Sheeple boo him for that. He should be booing them because you are the ones melting his polar ice cap, putting holes in his ozone layer, poaching his animals, spilling oil all over the place. This world is going down the tubes and it is the NXT Universe’s fault. It is because you are incapable of loving. From this moment forward, the Moonchild don’t love you neither.

Match Number Four: Erick Rowan and Luke Harper versus Jason Jordan and Marcus Louis

Harper hits the discus clothesline for the three count.
Winners: Luke Harper and Erick Rowan
After the match, Bray enters the ring. He takes Jordan from Rowan and Harper and then Wyatt hits Sister Abigail.
Bray takes the mic and he says grown men tremble by the sound of their footsteps. Souls cry at the mere thought of their presence being felt. This world has already been laid victim to all of his poisons. They have never forgotten where they came from. NXT has and always will belong to the Wyatt Family.
