Your announcers are Booker T and Vic Joseph.

We take a look back at Heatwave.

The new NXT Men's Champion Ethan Page makes his way to the ring and he has security on the floor around the ring.

Ethan says six weeks, that is all it took for him to take over this entire brand.  For him to accomplish something that miraculous in such a short time, it would take determination and adaptability.  Being a world class athlete and having a huge ego helps.  Ethan says you should have seen your faces at the end of Heatwave.  It was priceless.  Ethan says everyone in this room hates Ethan.  This cameraman probably hates Ethan Page.  The entire locker room hates Ethan Page.  

That is why he has security around the ring with him.  That keeps any overzealous degenerates from coming to the ring after him.  He does not have time for delinquents.

Oro Mensah goes for a spin move, but he does not have the agility of Robin Williams in Best of Times.

Ethan thanks security for getting rid of the trash.  Ethan thanks Ava for banning Oro from Heatwave so he doesn't interrupt another opportunity for him.  He got to go home to main event one of the greatest shows in NXT history and he walked out as champion.  Ethan promises that, as your NXT Champion, he promises that none of these 'outsiders' come to NXT and ruin what we have.  What they have in NXT is so very special.  If you don't mind indulging him, he would like everyone to join him in 'WE ARE NXT"

Ethan says he is NXT.  The Whoop That Era is officialy done.  We have entered the Era of Ego.

Trick Williams makes his way to the ring.  He tells Page you got the w at Heatwave, but he will get even.  He will get even with his rematch.  Trick says he wants his rematch tonight.

Ethan tells Trick he knows he is emotional.  Ethan says he is happy that Trick came out to ruin his celebration because he wanted to thank Trick for that Trick Shot because it allowed him to fall into the championship.  Ethan says he knew that Trick would come out to demand a rematch.  Ethan says he is the guy and the title proves that.  As far as your request . . . DENIED.

Shawn Spears comes out and he says that Ethan owes him a thank you.  If he did not have his view obstructed at the end of the match, you wouldn't have won.  He tells Trick that he has been runing his mouth for a while but who is the goofy ass now?  You lost without being pinned.  Shawn says he tried to tell Trick what would happen.  Shawn says he can't let Trick get a rematch.  He goes to the back of the line.

Not to feel left out, Je'Von Evans comes out.  He tells Shawn and Ethan to shut the hell up.  Evans says he knocked both of them out and pinned them and he almost became the new champion.  He shot his shot and he is going to shoot it again.  He isn't waiting for anyone.

Evans punches Page and Trick punches Shawn.  They return fire and Trick and Evans send Ethan and Shawn to the floor.

We take a look at how we got the tag team partners from Heatwave as opponents tonight.

We go to Brooks Jensen with Ava earlier today.

Ava tells Brooks his actions have been out of line.  Brooks apologizes to her and Shawn for what he did.  He got lost and out of control.  He says he is not here to make any excuses and he owns up to his actions.  

Ava says the life and job aren't easy.  There are a lot of ups and downs and highs and lows.

Brooks says this is all he wanted to do as a second generation superstar.  He says Ava knows.

Ava says that her and Shawn wanted to release him but a few people vouched for Brooks so they will give him a second chance.
