Tommaso Ciampa, I just want to say thank you. Tommaso is an unbelievable athlete, he’s a great performer, but most importantly, man, he’s a great human. Most people didn’t see it, but when the match was over, he stood up, grabbed my neck and said, kid, it’s your time. And he got out of the ring, he went over here in the front row and paid respects to my father who was watching me live for the first time ever. I know that I got my big shoes to fill, I know that, but I’m ready for this. And what I love about NXT the most, is that we don’t have a bye-week, we don’t have days off.

Week after week, we gotta get back up on the horse and perform for each and every one of you. So, to anybody back there in the locker room who wants to come out and challenge me for this NXT Championship, know this, everyday when you show up for training, I’ve already trained. Everyday you want to watch film, I’ve already watched it. You want to leave early, I’m staying. You want to know why? Because I’m the freaking NXT Champion. And I will prove that why I earned this championship each and every week.
