- Earlier today, the media speaks with LeRae and asks about Gargano's attack. She says she doesn't want to talk about this as she's keeping personal and business separate with him. She then says she's going to talk with Regal about a match against Nikki Cross.

Suddenly, Bianca Belair walks in and purposely bumps into Yim. Belair wonders why Kelley is interviewing Yim and not her when she's been here for two years, busting her butt, staying undefeated, and still not getting her title shot. Yim doesn't get the anger towards her and says Belair may be undefeated, but she hasn't beat Yim yet. Belair just chuckles at that and heads off.

- Backstage, Keith Lee is with Matt Riddle, asking how it felt to win his first match. Kassius Ohno is sitting nearby and says "Oh! It's Regal's new shiny toys."

- Johnny Gargano sent NXT a video explaining his actions against Aleister Black. Gargano is slowly walking outside as he says he's on a path, he once wanted to right a wrong by beating Tommaso Ciampa for the title, but Black got in the way. He says Black acts like he owns the place and hits Black Mass all over the place, but in this story Gargano is still the good guy. Gargano continues he does one little thing that some people may consider evil and everybody freaks out! Gargano says he's still the same guy and fights for what's right, but sometimes you gotta fight a little dirty. He continues that he understands that Black may want to kick his face off, but Gargano isn't scared of him. Gargano says he's living in a dark place now and he's kind of liking it, then sits by where he attacked Black and says he'll do the same thing at TakeOver.

- Regal announces next week, two competitors involved in the WarGames match will face off, whoever wins will give their team an advantage at TakeOver: WarGames.
