Note: NXT as aired is not in sync with the rest of the WWE universe. The show lags several weeks from when it is taped to when it aired. For example, this week you can see the pink Brest Cancer Awareness rope on the NXT Ring.
Daniel starts the show talking about what he’s done since his time on NXT. He makes demands regarding the crowd and then turns to Kane and tells him to say out his way. Kane tells Daniel to stay outta his way and he’s the Tag Team Champions. They get into a YES\NO fight. Daniel loses his voice, and Kane wins. Daniel walks off.
“Epic Rock Music”
Jim Ross and Tom Phillips are on commentary this week.
Trent Baretta enters the arena with bandages around his mid-section. Video from last week showed Trent getting attacked and Leo Kruger is in the hall way smiling. JR and Tom put over Leo as crazy and dangerous as he enters the ring.
Trent Baretta vs. Leo Kruger
Trent gets some early offense, but Leo takes advantage and works Trent’s injured mid-section. After several minutes, Trent gets a reversal and back on the offensive. Trent’s body can’t hold up and Leo hits his finisher and one more “Trophy” to his collection.
Winner: Leo Kruger
Xavier Woods makes his entrance with house dance music and moves to match. Memo does not get an entrance. Commentary is putting over Woods as much as possible.
Xavier Woods vs. Memo Montenegro
They lock up and struggle for control. Memo gets the first advantage, but Woods would then lock up and apply another hold to Memo. Woods would eventually break free and go on a no-frills offensive for the win and another dance opportunity.
Winner: Xavier Woods
After the match, Xavier would do the worm in the middle of the ring.
Audrey would get her introduction. The seculars on her wrestling top are amazing and worth a second look. This is Emma’s debut and she gets no introduction.
Audrey Marie vs. Emma
Audrey would take control of the match from the start. Emma is described as green on commentary. Emma breaks out of a pin count and gets some momentum with a crowd chant. It’s for naught as Audrey puts the match away for the win.
Winner: Audrey Marie
We move to Tony Dawson backstage. He’s supposed to interview Roman Reigns, but instead Tony reads a statement from Roman.
Michael Cole moderates Jinder Mahal and Seth Rollins
Byron Saxton introduces Michael Cole, Kerwin White music and all, to NXT. Cole puts over NXT as the future of the WWE. He then informs the crowd that he is moderating between Jinder and Rollins. He introduces Jinder Mahal first and then Seth Rollins. Cole asks Rollins about the attack. Jinder pulls the mic and says it was a message. Rollins tells him to his face it was an attack and he can’t beat me. Jinder says Seth being champ is a fluke and he is a born loser. Jinder says some jibber jabber and some English words and then goes jibber jabber again. Seth says he’s like the crowd, and is proud of it. It gets a Seth chant in the crowd. Seth caps it off saying he’s better than Jinder. Thy go nose to nose in the ring and then Cole separates them. The crowd chants “Let them Fight”. Jinder calls American Media bias. He goes for Cole, but Seth stops him. Jinder then turns to Seth and gets a camel clutch on him. Several refs have to get in the ring to separate them. Jinder picks up the NXT belt and looks at it, only to toss it on top Seth with disrespect.
Bryon Saxton is in the ring once more to announce the main event. Michael McGillicutty is out first to his music. Curtis is out next and is dancing out to the ring like a Chippendale’s Model. JR informs us that Curtis’ NXT Season 4 Win that would have resulted in a Championship Shot with R-Truth is getting cashed in tonight. Kane is out next. Finally, Daniel Bryan comes out and the crowd is chanting “Yes!” to him. After he is announced, the crowd is still going crazy with the “Yes!” chant. Kane and Bryan then fight saying “I’m the Tag Team Champions”. Several of the crowd gets into it as well. We have to go to commercial before the match starts.
