Kyle O’Reilly, Finn Balor, and Roderick Strong Segment 

Kyle O’Reilly: You all saw what happened Sunday at Takeover. I keep replaying the moment over and over in my head, trying to make sense of it, but I can’t. I’m shocked. I’m confused. I’m pissed off. And I’m disappointed. We were supposed to be unlike every other group that ever came and went in this business. We were special. And you ruined it for all of us. You kicked me in the face, but, man, you stabbed me in the back. And the thing is, Adam, you’re still my brother, which is why I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt. I gotta know what that was on Sunday, man. So, Adam, I need you to come out here. I need you to explain yourself. And when you’re done, I’m probably gonna punch you in the face, but I’m willing to hear you out. I’m right here, Adam.

– Roderick Strong appears on the stage.

Kyle O’Reilly: Wait a minute, this isn’t about you, Roddy.

Roderick Strong: You were right, we were special. The Undisputed Era is very special. Kyle, we know Adam. And speaking for myself, I know, Sunday, Adam did that based solely off of emotion. We’re brothers, that happens, you understand that. And I know, right now, in this moment, that Adam regrets that decision.

Kyle O’Reilly: Roddy, I don’t need you to explain it. I need him to explain it, so you coming out here on this peacekeeping mission, it’s wasting everyone’s time, so stop it. Roddy, don’t get in this ring, I’m telling you. Don’t do it Roddy. And it’s not that I don’t trust you, Roddy. You know what? It is that I don’t trust you. I don’t know who to trust. I barely trust myself right now, so I’m gonna say it one more time, Roddy, I don’t need to hear you from, I need Adam Cole to get his ass out here, right now. Adam Cole, get your ass out here.

Finn Balor: You’re not looking for me, Kyle? Well, I’m looking for you. You want to talk to Adam, well get in line behind me. Because as far as I’m concerned, me and you, we have a little business we need to address. You see on Sunday, you offered me your hand, and I knew I shouldn’t have accepted it. But I did, and we all saw what happened. So you want to come out here and talk about trust?

Roderick Strong: You shut your mouth, he didn’t have anything to do with that. Hey, don’t run your mouth, he had nothing to do with that.

Finn Balor: If he had nothing to do with that, did you have something to do with it?

Roderick Strong: Obviously I didn’t have anything to do with it.
