Samoa Joe & William Regal Segment 

Samoa Joe: Tick, tock, tick, tock, guess who’s come, to smash your clock.

William Regal: Joe, this is not what I wanted and it’s certainly not what I had in mind. When me and you agreed that you would come back here to NXT, you knew exactly what I had in mind. You cannot be calling out superstars, that is not your position.

Samoa Joe: No, incorrect, incorrect Regal. I can because the agreement was if I was provoked, you can consider me provoked, and I am here to hand out the consequences.

William Regal: I understand, but last week, you entered the ring in a referee capacity, Kross put his hands on Samoa Joe the referee, not Samoa Joe NXT Management.

Samoa Joe: Semantics, semantics, you of all people to come out and explain to me the ridiculousness of semantics, let me explain something to you. Kross is out of control, Kross needs to be put down, you have no control over him. Did you know about that little field trip to Raw last week? You don’t, because you don’t control the man, and you know it, and I, I am here to put him under control.

William Regal: Joe, just so we understand each other, Kross is on his way here, and when he gets here, all hell will not break loose, and you will solve this problem peacefully do we understand each other? Don’t say another word unless it’s the right one.

Samoa Joe: Because of my deeply held respect for you, I can guarantee you that tonight, will be the end of this. But I can’t guarantee it’ll end peacefully, and I can guarantee you, somebody tonight is going to sleep.
