What concerns him, is that Bray took his WWE Championship, and also Brock Lesnar is back on RAW with the Universal Title. Seth says his efforts to get the Universal Title off of Lesnar so there would be an active champion were in vain. Seth says he doesn’t know if he has the energy to deal with these things this time.

He talks about Seth being the first-ever NXT Champion and being the foundation of NXT, and then The Shield being born, and then Seth becoming WWE Champion.

HHH says NXT is on fire right now, but he wants to know what Seth is going to do next, because that will effect what HHH does next.
