Ricochet & The Velveteen Dream In-Ring Segment: 

Every place Ricochet has been around the world, he wanted to make sure that everyone went home talking about him. NXT is all about taking over. That’s exactly what Ricochet intends to do. He’ll take over the brand that defines what sports entertainment is all about. You can all it confidence or you can call it cocky. Anytime he walks to the ring, he shows that there’s one and only, Ricochet. There’s one and only thing on his mind, the NXT Championship. Velveteen Dream comes out to interrupt Ricochet.

Who is giving Ricochet the authority to walk into that ring?  Who gives him the authority to ask for NXT Title opportunities? Ricochet talks about taking over, but he needs to take a step back. Let’s get this one thing straight. Dream pokes fun at Ricochet’s catchphrase. There is one man and one experience. Ricochet is looking at The Dream. No matter how many times Ricochet flips, he better land in the very back of the line, behind the Dream. Ricochet knows that he’s the new guy around here.

Velveteen Dream made the entire NXT Universe say his name. He made the current NXT Champion say his name. Dream maybe forgot about that because he got his head kicked off. Ricochet can run his mouth. Dream Over will be more than a phrase, it will be a reality. Ricochet will be running laps around Dream. Dream is not good, but not elite. Dream better enjoy the spotlight because Ricochet is going to steal it. Anything Ricochet can do, The Dream can do better. Ricochet tells Dream to prove it. Dream takes his chain off. Dream slithers out of the ring.
