William Regal kicked off the second hour of this week's broadcast with an announcement on how a new champion would be crowned. Regal started off by wishing Kross best wishes on his long recovery.

Regal announced that next week, four of the greatest NXT Superstars (former NXT Champions) will compete in a Four-Way match to decide the new champion. Those competitors are Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Finn Balor and Adam Cole. Regal also announced that this would be a 60-minute Iron Man Match.
