Christy St. Cloud is standing by with Drew McIntyre, who talks about what’s been happening in NXT and becoming champion, the tough journey to this point and dealing with his release from WWE before. He talked to his dad who asked if he was going to be okay, especially since he and his girlfriend had moved into an apartment four days prior and in talking to his girlfriend (now wife), she noticed a fire was missing when he was released but after a while, he found that the fire came back and he was going to be okay. Some time later, he came back and four months later became champion. He talks about what he wants to do in NXT at this point, helping to inspire people suddenly, we see Zelina Vega walk in and interrupt, saying she’s taking over the interview. Vega talks about Drew and Andrade having a lot in common as Almas was on a downward slope before she came along. She asks Drew why he’s been avoiding Almas, but Drew says to talk to Regal. Vega retorts that the champ has the most pull with Regal. Drew understands what’s happening, and tells Vega to have Almas come to him directly, look him in the eye, and say that he actually wants the match. Vega agrees to this & walks off.
