We then see The Revival cost Gargano and Ciampa in the tournament. Tommaso says that the feeling after Brooklyn does not go away. He says when they become the NXT Tag Team champions, you cannot take that away from them. Johnny asks what does it mean if they never win. Tommaso says Toronto is their last chance to be the face of NXT.
Charly asks if one team has an advantage. Lita says that the Revival has dominated the division other than the time that American Alpha won the title. She says The Revival got too overconfident.
