Paul Heyman meets Pearce and Deville backstage, asking what the plan is for SummerSlam. Finn Balor's name is typed up on the contract, but John Cena's the one that signed. Pearce says that he sees Roman and Cena's signatures, and that's good enough or him.

Balor says it'll be his privilege to return to NXT as Universal Champion. Before he can sign it, Baron Corbin attacks him. Corbin rolls into the ring with the contract and goes to sign it as Roman looks disappointed. Cena runs down, cleans Corbin's clock, and signs his name on the dotted line. Is this allowed? Are we getting John Cena and Roman Reigns at SummerSlam? What about Finn Balor? 

01:08 (GMT)31 JUL 2021

Reigns saw Cena's promo earlier tonight. He tells Balor that Cena thinks he's lesser than he is. Reigns knows that's not true, and that Balor is more than deserving of a Universal Championship match. He's also worthy of a beatdown at SummerSlam. Reigns knows Balor is hungry, and respects that about The Prince. 

Still, if Balor signs this contract, Reigns will smash him and send him back to NXT. 

01:07 (GMT)31 JUL 2021

Reigns, of course, sits at the head of the table. As he goes to speak to Balor, the crowd breaks out in Cena chants. Reigns calls him "Mr. Missionary" and that's as far as I'll go with that.
