The champions stand over their fallen opponents as we go to another NXT exclusive with Sami Zayn.
Sami Zayn says he had the NXT Title won last week. I have no problem with JBL re-starting the match, Bo’s feet were clearly on the ropes. I do have a problem with JBL not re-starting the match when Bo used the exposed turnbuckle to beat me. I’m starting to feel what Daniel Bryan is feeling where it seems like you are not the chosen guy. Everybody knows Triple H runs NXT from top to bottom and once JBL gets position of interim GM, this stuff starts to happen. I’m not saying its a conspiracy, but its a helluva of concidence. Next time that NXT Title is in my hands, its staying there for good.
Back from commercial, Renee Young interviews NXT Interim GM JBL. Renee asks JBL about Sami Zayn said about there being a conspiracy. JBL says I guess the world revolves around Sami Zayn. I guess he is gonna blame the sun being in his eyes, his shoes being un-tied and an evil GM for his losing his title match. The Era of the Wrestling God is not gonna start with a controversy. A mistake was made by a referee, it was overturned and that is what’s best for business. I’m JBL, I cannot be bought. Triple H is the COO of a publicly traded company, he does what is fair, we take baseless accusations very seriously. Sami Zayn is not here, he will not be here for a while. I suggest he looks up JBL and finds out exactly who he’s dealing with. I suggest he calls my office and apologizes to me and I will think about bringing him back. Til then, our decision is Sami Zayn will not be back until we decide he comes back.
CJ Parker vs. Alexander Rusev
Parker comes out with Tyler Breeze’s iPhone. Rusev is not being managed by Sylvester LeFort this week. Rusev backs Parker into the corner, knees to the ribs. Back club and a falling headbutt.

Accolade applied, Parker taps.
Winner: Alexander Rusev by submission (The Accolade)
The mystery woman walks around ringside before heading to the back as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial as we see that during the break, Tyler Breeze came out as Parker was getting up from the loss to Rusev and hits the Beauty Shot. Parker then has a pair of scissors and cuts off one of Parker’s dreadlocks before taking back his iPhone.
