He tells Blackpool that NXT UK has changed everything, however, something that hasn't changed since TakeOver: Chicago is that he's the WWE UK Champion. Gallus comes out and Joe Coffey gets on the mic. Coffey tells the crowd, along with Dunne, that NXT UK is still his kingdom. He tells Dunne to look at the title he's had for over 600 days and enjoy it, because it will be around Coffey's waist at the end of the war. He says that if anyone has a problem with it, they can get to the back of the line.
Out comes Walter! The rest of Gallus holds Joe Coffey back until they eventually begin making their way to the back. Wolfgang and Mark Coffey run back in just before they reach the top of the ramp, but Dunne and Walter quickly force them back out of the ring.
