Joe Gacy is surrounded by druids and says “Let’s go change the world” to send us to break.
Back from commercial, commentary hypes up next week’s show.
Joe Gacy makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says he’s come far and had many triumphs on his journey to change the world, and broken barriers for people discriminated against for their weight, and molded NXT like clay of acceptance of everyone and anyone. They’ve made great strides, but the mission isn’t quite accomplished and he doesn’t think everyone buys into that way of life.
And he asks why, so it’s time to step up and separate from the masses, and after he wins the NXT Championship they’ll have no choice. Bron Breakker hasn’t told us about his injury, and that’s because he knows Bron isn’t cleared to defend the title.
So he’ll win the title and harden the clay to be reflective of his vision for the world.
Enter Rick Steiner, the dog-faced gremlin himself.
He gets in the ring and on the mic and says Gacy has it all wrong and his son is cleared to compete and will defend the title at Spring Breakin’. Joe says Rick picked a great time to come back, or maybe the worst possible time.
Enter Bron Breakker as some druids hold his dad back in the corner.
He hits the ring and beats up a bunch of druids, but Gacy takes him out with a lariat! Druids pass the title down bucket brigade style until they hand it off to Joe in the ring.
Gacy holds the title high.
That’s the show, folks.
