We see video detailing the history between William Regal & Kassius Ohno that leads to their long-awaited match this week.

Ambrose says that once again, justice has been served at NXT. Rollins says that we are the Shield, the most dominant, efficient force in the history of this company. We run RAW, we run Smackdown and now and forever, we run NXT. BELIEVE IN THE SHIELD!!!
All of a sudden, we see Corey Graves on the video wall. Graves says that everyone might buy what you guys are doing, but not me. I don’t believe in the Shield. Graves says that the Shield thinks they are gonna run roughshod over NXT, well you’re wrong. NXT is my personal wasteland, not yours. You guys have cost me the NXT Title not once, but twice and I’m not gonna take it anymore. Next week, I don’t care which one of you shows up, but I will put you down and you will stay down.
Rollins says that Graves wants to challenge the Shield? Rollins says that since he started this with Graves, he will finish it next week and Ambrose & Reigns can take the night off. Graves has no idea what he is in store for. And at the end of the night, when he is lying flat on his back, he, like everyone else, will believe in the Shield.
Backstage, Tony Dawson is with Summer Rae, but Summer corrects him into saying that she is the 1st lady of NXT. Dawson asks why did Summer run away from Paige last week during her tag match. Summer says she didn’t run away, she had just happened to remember that she left her curling iron on in the locker-room. I didn’t want to burn the building and if anything, you all should be thanking me. Paige should be thanking me also because if it wasn’t for that curling iron, it wouldn’t be the building, it’d be her career that would have gone up in smoke because I would have dropped her so hard and beat her so bad. Dawson goes to end the interview, but Summer makes Dawson, or Dawkins as she calls him, says that again she is the 1st lady of NXT, to which she ends by saying, “damn straight I am”.
Back from commercial, Renee Young is with Emma. Renee asks Emma what her experience in NXT has been like so far. Emma says that her path in NXT has been kinda like Lady Gaga’s, or more like Madonna’s. Renee says that the fans think Emma is a klutz. Emma is taken aback by that, but says that kids these days, with their Electric Slide & Macarena. But, those will pale in comparison to the Emma-lution. Emma does her wacky dance and wants Renee to do it with her, but Renee says no. Emma says that its her loss and goes to leave, but trips over the microphone cord. Renee asks if Emma is OK as we go back to the ring.
The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron) vs. The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie)
Naomi & Brie will start things off. Brie with a gut kick, but Naomi scissors her on the up & over off a corner whip and does some wacky thing, shaking her posterior in the face of Brie while having her in the scissors. Naomi then hits the Rear View (Butt Smash). Brie gets out of a suplex attempt, but then Naomi hits a flipping clothesline for a nearfall.

The Bellas celebrate their win as we go backstage.
Backstage, Tony Dawson is with Kassius Ohno, who is wearing a William Regal “Real Man’s Man” t-shirt. Ohno asks if Dawson said something because he can’t hear too well outta his left ear, thanks to William Regal. People think I’m obsessed with Regal, I’m not. However, I’ve watched every single match, every sound byte, seen the brass knuckles, seen him kiss Vince McMahon’s backside. The shame of this is I’ve seen so much of Regal, I’ve heard so much of Regal, his voice keeps playing in my head. But after tonight, no one is gonna see him again and no one is gonna hear him again.
We see a video hyping up the NXT Clash of Champions Special in 2 weeks where Kaitlyn will defend the Divas title against AJ Lee, Antonio Cesaro will defend the WWE US title against Adrian Neville, Big E. Langston will defend the NXT Title against Brad Maddox & Wade Barrett will defend the Intercontinental Title against Bo Dallas.
Backstage, Renee Young is with William Regal. She asks why did Regal finally challenge Ohno to a match tonight. Regal says that its not a nice place to be inside my head for many years, its not something I like very much. I’m quite happy with my announcer role on NXT as Mr. Entertainment when I make people laugh when I have to. But, those doors have been unlocked by Kassius Ohno and now he has to face the consequences. So Ohno, for what you are about to receive, may my children forgive me.
