The new NXT North American Champion is here. Dominik Mysterio wanted to show his father what a real champion looks like. If he wins the US title, he is only the champion of the United States, while he represents all of North America. Butch shows up to challenge Dominik to a title match. Shawn Michaels happens to be around to get this confirmed with Adam Pearce.
Shotzi left a picture of Bayley attached to her bag by a pair of scissors as a warning. She is spooked.

Roman Reigns and Jey Uso have a contract signing to decide the “Rules Of Engagement”. The Tribal Chief asks Jey if he still wants to do this. Yeah, he still wants to do this. He’s making him do this because of what he did to Jimmy. Reigns signs the contract. Jey tears up the contract and says they don’t need it. It’s all about the blood. This is “Tribal Combat” now. Jey Uso said this was his idea. Anything goes. If he wants to grab a steel chair, he will. He could grab that ladies slipper over there and slap him over the head with it.
Reigns tells Orlando and Jey to shut their mouths, the Tribal Chief is speaking. He has ran this business for almost a decade now. The two respect each other with a traditional meeting of the minds. Solo Sikoa goes to spike Jey, but both he and Roman stop him. Jey superkicks Solo for interfering. If Jey is to win at SummerSlam, he will take all, including the title of Tribal Chief and the Undisputed Universal Championship.
