– Back from the break and we see Joe Gacy somewhere with his two hooded disciples. Gacy says it’s fitting that Saturday’s event is called In Your House because it was at the home of NXT Champion Bron Breakker when the first embers of this fire were cultivated. He goes on about Bron watching his dad, WWE Hall of Famer Rick Steiner, blaze a career as one of the greatest ever on TV each week, a career based on controllable power and physicality. Bron and his two brothers would continue where their father left off, then Rick came home and instead of breaking it up, he let it continue. Why not… brothers fighting was normal for Rick and his brother, WWE Hall of Famer Scott Steiner. Gacy says it wasn’t just survival of the fittest in the ring, it was that way at the kitchen table also.

Gacy goes on about how Bron quickly rose to the top of NXT. How does Gacy know all of this intimate information? He learned it all by spending intimate time with Bron’s hero, his father, when he had him abducted and desperate. Gacy says Bron’s family settles things with fists, and it’s not his fault he’s prone to lash out. Gacy tells Bron to lash out, be the man he truly is at In Your House, let the anger he has for Gacy consume him, give Gacy what he deserves.

Gacy laughs to end the segment.

– McKenzie Mitchell is backstage now with NXT Champion Bron Breakker. He repeats what Joe Gacy said – the apple doesn’t fall from the tree, and says he’s not going to lose the title a second time, especially to Joe Gacy. We hear Gacy’s laugh echo through the locker room, and the lights are flickering. Bron gets upset and grabs a TV in a fit of rage.

Choo just wants them to sign the contracts. The arguing continues and Rose has heard enough. She says Toxic Attraction is the best in the business because the titles say so. She says the NXT Superstar with the most pressure this weekend isn’t Bron Breakker, Cameron Grimes, Legado del Fantasma or Tony D’Angelo and his crew, it’s Rose because… Choo wants them to just sign the contracts. Fans chant “sign the contracts!” now. Rose continues and says she will do whatever she can to make sure this child-looking Choo is not the next champion. Rose insults Choo some more and lashes out at those who thought her title reign would be a short one. Rose tells everyone to put some respect on her name. She demands the contract and then signs it as the others continue yelling at each other.

Rose yells at Choo again but Choo hits her with a spitball. A brawl breaks out now as Barrett retreats. Katana and Kayden send the tag champs to the floor, then fly out to take them back down. Rose and Choo brawl but Katana and Kayden join her for the triple team. Katana and Kayden place Rose on top of a table and fans chant as Choo goes to the top. Choo flies with the Sleeple’s Elbow and puts Rose through the table as a “holy shit!” chant breaks out. Choo, Katana and Kayden stand tall in the middle of the ring as Choo’s music hits.

James asks Nile if she will continue talking to The Creed Brothers after Saturday at In Your House. Nile asks what she means by that. James says after NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly retain on Saturday, then The Diamond Mine will have to start recruiting new members. Nile says The Creeds will win the titles because it’s Diamond Mine forever. James says according to her numbers, they only have a 12% chance of winning. Nile grabs James and slams her against a locker, asking what the numbers say about Nile kicking her ass. James says the numbers indicate about the same for The Creeds.
