Ben says that he's happy to be there, but he doesn't just want to be there, he wants to become a champion before they're interrupted by Jordan Devlin. Jordan asks how Noam decided to have him on the show rather than the NXT Cruiserweight champion. Dar says that he might bring Jordan on when he's not an interim champion before Ben tells Jordan that he is the true Cruiserweight champion.
Ben says that Jordan is the Ace of the division and the gatekeeper before saying that he should have no problem defending his title against him. Jordan offers Ben the opportunity to face Jordan later tonight before Ben accepts and Sid Scala shows up. Sid then says that he's going to talk to NXT UK General Manager Johnny Saint and that they'll move some matches around to get the Cruiserweight title match for our main event.
