Samoa Joe and William Regal cut a promo where the former told the latter that Kross needs to be in lane. Regal told Joe he would take action, and Joe backed off out of respect for William Regal.

He told Joe he would do whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted and walked away. As the camera zoomed out, William Regal was lying on the concrete floor. Karrion Kross had attacked William Regal, and Samoa Joe was furious!
