Contract Signing: Street Profits, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly
William Regal is in the ring and he is here for the contract signing for the NXT Tag Title Match. The Street Profits come to the ring first.
Angelo and Montez stop William Regal before introducing the Undisputed Era because they say they can do a proper introduction. Montez channels his inner Road Dogg and calls them O’Reilly Auto Parts and Lawrence Fishburne Junior.
Bobby says that was funny and he says he forgot to laugh because it slipped his mind. Kyle says he remembered to laugh but chose not to because it wasn’t funny. Bobby says the truth hurts so if you are feeling sensitive today, you might want to cover them ears. You are not on this level, but for the first time in your careers, those autographs are in demand so we need to get those contracts signed. You have no chance of leaving Takeover with the titles because they are better than you bell to bell and they are funnier.
Bobby asks Kyle to tell that joke. Kyle says The Street Profits are the NXT Tag Team Champions and Kyle says that is the joke. Bobby appreciates that Montez and Angelo find it funny.
Montez says you have shocked the system ever since you set foot in NXT. You have had titles and you are featured on NXT TV and Takeovers. You have beaten every tag team in NXT History. Angelo runs through the teams and says you are probably the best team ever in NXT.
Bobby says he is not going to argue with that.
Montez asks what makes you think losing is an option because now that they are featured and everyone sees them and feels them. What makes you think that losing is an option. The only option is to win.
Angelo says at Takeover, the Street Profits are gonna beat that ass and that is undisputed.
Angelo and Montez sign the contract and then Bobby and Kyle sign the contract so it is official.

Video: NXT Women’s Title Match
We are back with a look at the NXT Women’s Championship Match at TakeOver.
Mia mentions that she grew up in a war zone in Southern California. Wrestling was an escape. Because of the fans, that is why she is here. Mia says she will damned if she is going to let them down. Her motivation is to show these people that it is possible when everything is against you.
Shayna says Mia has a great story about coming from nothing, but a great story will not impress her. The end of the story is always the same. This division is more talented than ever and she is the champ. Shayna says she got signed because of what she did in the ring, not because people chanted her name.
Mia says Shayna is dominant only because she has two people protecting her. Has she won anything on her own? It has always been Shayna plus two and that is why she took them out.
Shayna says Mia does not deserve a title match, she deserves to be arrested. She will put Mia’s street trash fantasies to sleep.
Mia says Shayna will see someone across the ring who does not fear her.
