Johnny Pardo, If You've Done Enough Smelling Salts: Live *coughtotape* from WWEPC, it's Wednesday Velveteen Dream!
the New Dream: Ambiance.  "kills" the lights  Atmosphere.  rolling CGIed purple fog Illumination: we all dream of being NXT Champion one day.  Johnathan, you dream of one day becoming so.  And you can do it, I have no doubt of that, but not yet.  Not when the choices are you and I.  Your rise?  Tainted.  Marred with doubt.   Moreover, my experience was pure.  No matter how the pieces fall tonight...a dream will be over.

No Way Jose: New year!  Same me!  No way I'm losing my return match!
Cezar Bononi: But I
Jose: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE!  alley oop right
Referee: It is high! It is far! And. It. Isssssssssssssssssss . GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEE...uh, I mean, winner!

BB: shoots her down, throws in a hair whip, overhead powerbomb
Referee: Winner!

Percy Watson, "Earlier Today": hooboy is this awkward
Ember Moon: (glaring) You're a bully who thinks you can take shortcuts in my division.  Are you overcompensating for something?
Shayna Baszler: per usual, barely restraining herself from making the jerkoff motion on WWETV and smirking This isn't about what I did to Dakota, or Aliyah or Kairi.  You stir up the waters to catch fish, and you're the big fish in this pond.
Moon: I got that way for a reason.  There's a code: sportsmanship, skill, honor and heart.  You owe yourself and your division, and should you ever get to where I am you m i g h t get a small glimpse of what that means.  Not this Saturday, though.
Shayna: You worked hard, started from nothing, achieved your dreams.  Hoo.  Ray.  I worked just as hard, and come Saturday once you come to?  I'm walking away with your title and your dreams.
Moon: gets up
Shayna: does as well
Percy: uh shayna anything you want to communicate to our fans?
Shayna: Nah.  They're just gonna have to get used to it.  walks
Moon: glares
