The music of the NXT Commissioner Dusty Rhodes hits and he makes his way onto the entrance way. Dusty says that this week, Bo Dallas, Corey Graves & Conor O’Brian will have the Triple Threat #1 Contenders match they were supposed to have last week. Dusty also says he has made an attempt to beef up security because this is our house and it does not belong to the Shield. Let’s get this party started.
We see the usual intro, then we go right to the ring for our opening match. New NXT Tag Team Champion Adrian Neville comes out, but his partner Oliver Grey is nowhere to be found. Neville gets a mic and says that this is weird, he doesn’t know where Grey is. Neville says they were warming up earlier today and then all of a sudden, Grey disappeared.

Backstage, Tom Phillips interviews Bo Dallas. Bo talks about his recent accomplishments at the Royal Rumble and defeating Wade Barrett. Bo says tonight, he gets to become the #1 Contender to the NXT Title and Graves & O’Brian can say that he has had luck. All of a sudden, Bray Wyatt comes in and says that luck is exactly what he’d call it. Bray says he saw that the Shield attacked him, kinda like what I did. Bray says had Bo not refused his hand, the Wyatt Family could have protected him. Bo says that obviously, Bray didn’t understand the 1st time, he wants nothing to do with his family. Stay away from me! Bray laughs, then says that Bo is a foolish young man.
Back from commercial, Renee Young interviews Summer Rae. Summer says we have been through this, you refer to me only as the 1st lady of NXT, Summer Rae, so try again. Renee asks if Summer is serious and Summer says do you not see what I did to Paige, do you not take what I did to her seriously. Paige is gone and she is never coming back. Summer says the only reason Paige got any attention from those lonely losers in that arena is because she’s merely attainable and clearly, I’m not, I mean take a look at me. Summer says next time I choose to even talk to you, refer to me as the 1st lady of NXT. If you don’t, there will be problems and I’ll treat you how I did Paige, like trash, much like Emma next week. Any questions, sister? Thought so, kisses.
We then get static as the Shield is interrupting the broadcast. Dean Ambrose says that he hopes you didn’t miss us too much, but now seeing us, you can feel safe again. You know how you feel the warm, reassuring hand of justice on your shoulder, because you know when you see us, you know the wrongs will be righted. Ambrose says you know how we feel about injustice and what we do about injustice and we can’t stand to see injustice, like we saw last week. Seth Rollins says that there is still a lot of injustice in NXT. We took care of Corey Graves’s whining and complaining. A true injustice is that Conor O’Brian thinks he deserves a NXT Title shot. And poor Bo Dallas, Bo don’t know a lot, but we taught him a thing or two about justice. Ambrose says we said it before, but it bears repeating. We’re always watching, we’re always judging you, we can show up anywhere, anytime, to serve injustice. We take this boring, sterile universe and we put a crack in it and make it lively and now, things are getting better. We’ve done it to RAW, we’ve done it to Smackdown and we can do it to NXT. Roman Reigns says that we are a pack of dogs with no boundaries, there isn’t anyone we won’t test, we will fight anyone, anytime. We’re unstoppable, we’re bullet-proof, we are the Shield! Rollins says if anyone has a right to be angry, its me, where’s my NXT Title re-match? Now, the Shield’s focus has been directed elsewhere lately, but mark my words, we haven’t forgotten about NXT. Sometime, somewhere, when you least expect it, we’ll be back to make a mark. Ambrose says we’re taking back the NXT Title, just like we’ve taken back WWE for the people for upholding justice. BELIEVE IN THE SHIELD!
Its now time for our main event.
