Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, William Regal
Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com

We see the usual intro, then the music of the Jersey Boys hits for our opening match.

Enzo Amore has a mic before the bell and introduces himself and Big Cass. Big Cass says that a few things are about to happen. Pepe LePue is gonna walk out here, he’s gonna get dissed, he’s gonna get disrespected, he’s gonna get disfigured and then he’s gonna get dismissed. There is only one word to describe the Legioniares. Do we have to spell it out for you? S..A..W..F..T……..SAWFT!!!

Sylvester LeFort says before the bell that after the Jersey Boys put everyone to sleep with their boring line, why don’t you people take a good look at two, French elites. Marcus Louis & Sylvester LeFort and together we are Le Legioniares. Now, everyone in NXT knows that we have no match, especially not these two jokes from that state of human garbage you call New Jersey. Vive Legioniare, Vive France!

The Jersey Boys celebrate their win afterwards.

Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews NXT Champion Adrian Neville and congratulates him on his win against Rob Van Dam last week. Neville says it was a honor to face RVD last week, but then, Tyler Breeze walks in and interrupts. Breeze says that everyone was impressed with Neville’s match against RVD, ok, even me. Not because you beat him, but because you were able to stay focused when the Gorgeous One was watching 20 feet away. It must be killing you not knowing when I’m gonna cash in my title shot and take your NXT Title, almost as much as your “uggo” face is killing me. Neville says he is fine, in fact, if you wanna go, we can do it tonight. Me & you, one-on-one, I’ll even put the NXT Title on the line, balls in your court, mate. Breeze says he’d love to, but I suffered a career-threatening injury in a tragic hand modeling accident, so lucky for you, Neville, you get to live another day. Breeze shows off his splint on his hand and walks off.

Gabriel says he has no shame in losing to the NXT Champion, Kidd should know. Kidd says he does know, but doesn’t it make Gabriel angry. Justin, you are headed to purgatory and you don’t even know it. You’re on RAW, you’re on Smackdown, PPVs, NXT. You know what happens, the phone calls? They become less frequent, then they stop altogether. You have a way out of this and your way out is to take that boot of yours and to put it on everybody trying to rise up. Now’s your time. Gabriel says Kidd is wrong and he will prove it to Kidd tonight by beating Zayn, watch.

Commercial

Back from commercial, we go backstage to the BFFs. Sasha asks Charlotte what happened out there during their match, you’re just gonna watch Bayley attack me? Charlotte says that she doesn’t think they will be tagging anymore. I mean, we could still be friends, you know, the type that say “hey” in the hallway. But, I think I wanna be on my own. Sasha asks if Charlotte knows everything that Sasha has done for her, everything she has given up for you? What is this about Summer? Charlotte says that it has nothing to do with Summer, Summer coming back just made things more clear that she can’t trust anyone, including you. Sasha says its funny because she & Summer got along just fine before you came into the picture. Charlotte says she does not care because she is the NXT Women’s Champion. Sasha says she is for now, because Summer is gonna face Bayley to determine the #1 Contender to the NXT Women’s Title and will win. Sasha mockingly says good luck to Charlotte, she will need it and walks off.

Winner: “The Moonchild” CJ Parker by pinfall (Side Kick)

Afterwards, Parker grabs a mic and says that Xavier Woods is a semster away from his doctorate degree. He is the most educated man in the WWE, but what has he done since leaving NXT? Been a Funkadactyl? Dressed up like Uncle Sam? Danced and pandered for all you people? That’s exactly what he has done. If I had the opportunity that Woods had, I would win titles, make a name for myself and the whole time, change the world along the way. Woods, you have what I want and need and I am coming for you.

We go to a sit-down interview between Renee Young & Tyson Kidd. Renee asks about why Kidd did not shake Adrian Neville’s hand at NXT Takeover. Kidd says that his mind wasn’t there. Before my match, my wife had just recently lost and like a good husband, I hugged her and consoled her and I was a step off my game in the match. Renee brings up the Takeover post-show when Kidd blew off his wife, Natalya, and walked off. Kidd says that he wasn’t in any mood to do the Fallout show and Natalya asked me to go out there and at least say something and when I went out there, I knew that I wasn’t gonna say the right things, so I just thought it was better that I didn’t say anything and left, my mind wasn’t there and I didn’t even realize that my wife was even at the end of the stage, I would never blow my wife off like that. Renee brings up the rematch with Neville and Natalya telling the ref about Neville’s foot being on the rope when Kidd thought he had the title won. Kidd says he thought for sure he won the title and in a way, I was glad my wife was out there to let me know that Neville’s foot was on the ropes so I could continue the attack and not let it get restarted. When I grabbed that chair, all I saw was red and I’m so glad and grateful that my wife was able to place her hand on that chair and snap me out of what I was going through, almost an out-of-body experience. Renee brings up Natalya setting up Kidd & Sami Zayn in a tag match 2 weeks ago for the NXT Tag Team Titles. Kidd says it was nothing personal with Zayn, my wife secured the match of us teaming up. I did it for my wife, but my head and my heart, they just weren’t into that match. She had great intentions, I just couldn’t win the titles that way. Renee brings up social media calling Kidd a baby. Kidd says those people are either single or don’t understand having a wife that you love more than you love yourself. She’s my entire world, so if they wanna think that way, let them think that way. Renee brings up the “Nattie’s Husband” chants and Kidd says he likes to drop facts, so that is simply a fact they are saying. Renee asks if Kidd thinks he is in the shadow of Natalya. Kidd says he & his wife are equals. Renee asks if Kidd & Natalya are having marital problems, but Kidd walks off.
