Finn Balor is here after the break, and he’s here to explain hisself. He said he took his mouth off and he’s the hottest thing in the business. Finn says that as usual, everybody’s got their opinions. Fans, the office, boys in the back, etc. Twitter tough guys got their opinions. The problem around here is that there are too many fans in the locker room when they should be sitting out here with these people. Finn doesn’t watch this business, this business watches him. Which brings him to Johnny Gargano – “The Heart of NXT.”

Johnny, congrats, Finn heard he got out of the hospital. He wants to be clear, though, if Johnny wants his go again, Finn will be send him straight back. He won’t be Johnny Wrestling – he’ll be Johnny Watches Wrestling.
