“Big Cass” Colin Cassady vs. “The Artiste” Aiden English
Before the match, English asks for his spotlight and sings that you can’t sing with me, its not even worth it, you better not even try. For if you do, you just be embarassed. I blow a kiss good-bye.

Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Bo Dallas. Bo says that the reason why his “occupy NXT” didn’t work last week is because his “Bo-lievers” are law-abiding citzens. They didn’t just wanna do anything un-lawful, which made “occupy NXT” slightly under-whelming. But the Bo Dallas hotline is ringing off the hook with support for the “Bo Movement.” My drive to win back the NXT Title will never die and neither will the “Bo Movement.” Don’t stop “Bo-lieveing!”

Charlotte says that giving Sasha the reins the last 2 weeks was an epic fail. Sasha goes to retort, but Charlotte cuts her off, saying Sasha should be sorry. Charlotte says she will take down every Diva in this division, starting next week when we face Emma, that double bubble head and a partner of her choice, which is funny because she doesn’t have any friends. Sasha says of course, Emma doesn’t have friends, but Charlotte cuts her off again and wonders what Sasha thinks is so funny. Its about time someone took charge, someone with a little more “Flair.”
CJ Parker comes out and says that when I try to sleep at night, I just lay in my bed and stare at the ceiling, just wondering what this planet would be like if there was no such thing as the NXT Universe. Plain and simple, it’d be a place that I’d be proud to call home. There would be no litter in my street, there would be no animals in my zoos, there would be no such thing as an SUV, everything would be fuel-efficient. How can you boo a guy that wants to be the change that you should all want to see in this world? How can you boo a guy who cares?

Backstage, Sami Zayn says he is fine after re-injuring his head against Corey Graves 2 weeks ago. With head injuries nowadays, WWE has gotta be very protective. I’m not gonna question the ref’s call, but I could have hung in there. Graves caught me, plain and simple. But, I’m looking forward to next week when I team with the Usos to face Corey Graves and the Ascension. Graves has made this very personal because its not just about the attacks anymore, not just about head injuries, I don’t like him, this kind of guy he is. He needs to be put in his place and that exactly what I am going to do at 100%.
