Kassius Ohno vs. Trent Baretta
Kassius Ohno is out first. We get a replay from two weeks ago when Trent won after Richie Steamboat interfered with a towel. 1-2-3-4, and here’s Trent. Ohno looks over to Trent showing a fist for him. Trent gets the first offense in the match. It ends when Trent tries to use the apron, but instead gets a stomp from Ohno. Ohno jaw jacks the crowd for little effect before rolling Trent into the ring and going on the offensive. Ohno gets a dragon sleeper that leads into a reversal clothesline for Trent. Trent goes on the offensive but cannot get a pin fall several times. Ohno gets a big knee to Trent, but Trent reverses into a pin fall. Ohno gets Trent with a boot to the face, but can’t get the pin fall now. Trent gets put on the top rope, but Ohno falls. Trent gets a missile drop kick to Ohno, but takes too much time and Ohno rolls out of the ring. Trent goes after him, but Ohno rolls in. When Trent enters the ring, he’s hit with a KO elbow.

Memo, the real life brother of Alberto Del Rio, is in the ring as Big E enters the ring. Commentary does not know who he is. Big E gets a five chant going before he squashes Memo
Winner: Big E. Langston
Big E looks to the ref for a five count. The crowd chants, “One More Time” and Big E does it. The Crowd goes “One More Time” again. Vickie gets on the arena tron. She’s angry at him from throwing chalk at her and is offering 5 thousand dollars for anyone to put him on the shelf. Big E goes for Memo, but Chad Baxter comes out to claim the 5k. Big E squashes him with a five count as well.
Bray Wyatt comes out and says he’s awake and got his wings back. He yells “Wake up” to the crowd. He starts preaching to the crowd. He asks if he’s ready to change the world. Jason Jordan gets the mic and tells him he’s not here to talk, but to fight. Wyatt tells him he has no idea what he’s dealing with. He informs him that he’s a monster and that he’s never alone. Luke Harper enters the arena and the ring.
Luke Harper (Brodie Lee) vs. Jason Jordan
Luke mauls Jason and Wyatt paces on the stage looking on. After a few minutes, Jason finally is able to move to the side and get some offense in. It’s all for naught as Jason gets caught and slammed for the win.
Winner: Luke Harper
Wyatt introduces the first son of the Wyatt Family, Luke Harper.
We cut to a package of last week’s Roman Reigns debut in the ring. Bryon Saxton is on the stage to interview him. Roman comes out to his music, and then dismisses Bryon from the stage. He cuts a program that “He is the man” and everyone wants to be him. And that’s the promo.
JR comes out to do commentary for the main event.
Main Event in a Fatal Four Way Elimination Match where the winner becomes #1 Contender to The NXT Championship: Jinder Mahal vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Bo Dallas
JR puts over Bo based on his family history. The match gets off hot and several of the wrestlers get thrown out of the ring to setup a Gabriel dive over the top rope.
When we come back, Jinder and Drew are working together to beat on Bo Dallas. Jinder turns on Drew, but Drew is able to turn the tables on him.

Jinder is on the outside of the ring as the NXT Champion Seth Rollins takes a seat on the stage.
When we get back, Jinder slams Dallas into the steel steps with a lot of noise. Jinder rolls him in to the ring and uses the ropes to continue the damage. Jinder goes for a few pin attempts as he gets more frustrated. Each near fall gets Jinder more desperate and more irate. Dallas uses strikes to separate himself and then moves out of the way. Dallas gets a running forearm and a power slam as he sets for a spear, but Jinder dodges. Dallas gets caught in the ropes and it sets up a camel clutch for Jinder and Bo Dallas taps.
