Next week’s main event gets the Prime Target treatment. It starts with an interview with Keith Lee where he puts over Adam Cole’s legendary reign and talks about how much next week means to him. Cole puts over Lee’s amazing last year, but says his year was better. None of Keith’s big moments would have happened if he hadn’t led the charge into Survivor Series. The difference between them is that Lee comes up short in big moments and he finds a way to prevail. Lee says Cole may be Undisputed, but he’s Limitless. They talk themselves up over rising music.
McKenzie Mitchell catches up with Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae. They’re made because it was supposed to be a 4 Way, not a 3-on-1.

The two sides are pulled apart.
