Finn Balor is shown smiling outside of the locker room ahead of an interview. He starts answering but Bobby Roode rolls up to say they’re cut from the same cloth. Both good looking, good hair, great abs, and unstoppable in the ring. Constable Corbin can say what he wants, but when it’s time to perform in the ring, nobody’s better than Finn Balor, and when all is said and done, they’re going to be… not glorious, but victorious.
But since you mentioned it, yes, they’re going to be glorious. Finn says it’s funny that Corbin thinks he’s the brains of the operation when all he does is go around telling people Balor’s half as big, tough, and strong, but he’s not half of anything, he’s twice as good, and he and Bobby could talk all night about how tough they are, but they like to do their talking in the ring.

Baron charges in, slides out, back in, duck a lariat and both men end up down and out. Tags made all around, Finn clubs Elias down, clears the apron, double leg into the double stomp, clothesline sends the Drifter to the floor and he’s fired up! Off the ropes, Corbin trips him, Elias comes from behind and we go to break.

Reverse chinlock applied, wrenching Balor down to the mat and pushing up for more pressure. Finn to his feet, reaching for the tag, denied, he passes Elias to the floor, reaching and crawling, tag to Baron and he clubs Balor to block.
Getting in Roode’s face, throwing Finn into the ropes… Sling Blade connects! Tag made, Bobby in, clearing the apron, back elbow, flying forearm, corner lariat into the neckbreaker and he’s fired up! Up top, diving… CAUGHT INTO THE CHOKEBREAKER BUT BALOR BREAKS IT UP! Putting Elias to the floor, big dropkick knocks him into the barricade but the Constable takes him out! Roode from behind with a schoolboy, not enough, Bobby to the second and he hits the diving blockbuster only for the Drifter to break it up!

Finn says that Baron deserves an apology… from the person who gave him that haircut. Baron calls Finn a little twerp and he says he is trying to help Finn out. You don’t get the opportunities that he gets. You don’t get paid like he does. Stephanie hand picked him for this job. He tells Finn to show him respect and apologize. Finn says he is sorry. He is sorry but you stopped deserving any respect when you became Stephanie McMahon’s stooge.
