We are back and Gigi Dolin makes her way to the ring.

She says she is not shy about the broken home she grew up in.  Or learning the hard way what addiction is like from their parents.  They did not know what a stable family was, but she thought she found one in NXT.  Jacy cut her out of her life and now she will do anything to end Jacy.  I will purge everything I ever felt for you.

Jacy Jayne shows up in the crowd and she says that is enough emo talk for one night.  Jacy says this is where it all started.  We would sit in the lounge and look down on everyone.  You were riding shotgun to her.

Gigi says if it was so great, why throw it away.  

Jacy says she outgrew Gigi and was sick of carrying Gigi in matches.  Everyone knew that she would be a bigger star on her own.  

Gigi says it is funny that Jacy wants to move on but you have been focused on me ever since.  You want to move on so you won't be remembered as the third wheel.

Jacy says the last time they were in that ring, she beat Gigi and embarrassed her in front of her brother.

Gigi says you won the match, but you needed eight stitches to fix your face.  I beat you at Roadblock so it is one to one.  Let's settle this right here, right now.

Jacy says everyone loves Gigi.  Go ahead and play to the crowd and do what you do best.  Pander to your loyal fanbase who live on social media and eat up your pathetic Instagram stories.  I cannot wait to be done with you once and for all.  Next week, let's end it where it began.  She says she doesn't want to end it in any match, she wants to end it inside a steel cage.

Gigi says she doesn't pander to anyone and she wears her heart on her sleeve.  She says she is real and everyone sees that.  Jacy is a fake ass bitch. You want a steel cage match next week, let's take it up a notch and make it a weaponized steel cage match.

Jacy accepts the match.

Luca Crusifino says he tried to explain your situation to Mr. Stone and it will be settled in the ring.  When you are in the ring with Luca Crusifino, you will wish you settled it out of court.
