Tommaso Ciampa & Bron Breakker Segment 

Tommaso Ciampa: Let’s get right to it. On Tuesday night, October 26, Halloween Havoc returns to NXT. And the champ, well, the champ needs an opponent, and I’m well aware that this NXT 2.0 roster is full of hungry men and women. Now, one man in particular, well, he says he’s not a patient man, he says he wants to be the flag barrier of NXT 2.0 and that’s all fine and dandy. But the thing is, in the world we live in, actions speak louder than words. So the question is, who has the balls to come out here and take my NXT Title from me?

But guess what, I got the biggest balls in that locker room. The match that I want, that they want, at Halloween Havoc, me and you for that.

To Bron Breakker, this title is just a stepping stone to something bigger and better. To Tommaso Ciampa, this title, it is something bigger, it is something better.
