Stephen meets Irish WWE stars Becky Lynch and Finn Bálor outside of the ring, in the Two Tube Green Room, and chatted to them about what it takes to be a WWE star, their wrestling heroes and other career-avenues that they’d like to pursue.
Joe says as he sat in the back, people asked him ‘why did you do what you did’? Joe says he did it because we are defined by two things, the choices that you make and the actions that you take. Finn Balor, you came to me to be part of the Dusty Rhodes Classic as a team and Joe says he made a choice. Joe says he put action behind it. He took Finn by the hand and put him on his back and carried him through the best that NXT had to offer. They won it all.
Joe says he stared Finn in the eye during the celebration. He told Finn to make the right choice. Give him an NXT title shot. Much to your credit, you made the right choice. You gave him the shot, but you put no action behind it. In fact, you let William Regal walk in right in front of you to allow Regal to put him in a battle royal for the shot you gave him. To be put into a battle royal, it was an insult. Joe says that the second he set foot in NXT, he was owed and he was entitled to an NXT title match.
