In-Ring: Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream, Nikki Cross
NXT Men’s Champion Tommaso Ciampa makes his way to the ring. Ciampa says the greatest sports entertainer of all time now has the greatest entrance music of all time. He asks if you want to know the best thing about it, it is that it has brought silence to the sheep. In every walk, there is always one who tries to break away from the pack and craves attention. One who needs to be different. That one is the Velveteen Dream. Dream, you have the champ’s attention but you have gone about it the wrong wrong way. When you start pointing fingers and make accusations. When you stick your nose into things that are not your business…
Velveteen Dream makes his way to the stage. Dream says all of this right here is amusing to the Velveteen Dream. Especially the part about you being the greatest sports entertainer of all time. Dream says since we are on the subject, the Dream does not appreciate your threats. The Dream can only assume because you think you are a bad bad man. The Dream believes that the NXT Championship deserves a true experience, not a guilt trip from an angry bald man hiding behind his insecurities.
Ciampa says he may be an angry little bald man, but he has a shiny shiny shiny title belt. Ciampa says he gets it. The Dream wants what the champ has. You want the main event, the spotlight, and his NXT Title. Ciampa says that he does not think the Dream believes himself when he blamed the champ for attacking Aleister Black. You only want attention. Now that everyone is listening, be a man and admit it. Ciampa says the title says that maybe you are just not tough enough.
Dream says not only is he tough enough, he is man enough. He says Dream is more man than Ciampa can handle. If you want to find that out, give Dream a moment with him and the NXT Championship.
