Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com
We see video highlighting last week’s main event between Adrian Neville and Tyson Kidd for the NXT Title that saw Neville retain his title after Natalya stopped her husband from using a chair.
Backstage, Natalya walks up to NXT GM JBL and says that Kidd has had an awful week and I wanted to do something to make it up to him and make a suggestion that he teams with Sami Zayn and they form a team. At least it would be something fresh. JBL agrees, thanks Natalya and says he will think about it.
We see the usual intro, then go to the opening match.

Sasha misses a clothesline and Bliss with a tilt-a-whirl into an inside cradle for a nearfall. Dropkick sends Sasha into the corner, then Bliss with a Monkey Flip. Sasha stops Bliss from sliding under her legs, but Bliss with a forearm. Bliss goes for a spinning headscissors, but Sasha counters with a backbreaker for a nearfall. More trash talk by Sasha, then drives Bliss into the mat. Surfboard applied as we see Charlotte & Summer having problems with one another on the outside. Sasha gains a nearfall.

Backstage, Natalya walks up to Tyson Kidd and asks if he is OK. Kidd says he is fine. Natalya says she is excited for his match tonight, you are gonna do great. Kidd says that last week, Natalya cost him the NXT Title. Natalya says that Kidd was really gonna try and win by cheating? Bringing a chair into the ring is an automatic DQ, you’re better than that. Kidd says he knows what the rules are. Natalya says for Kidd to lose the attitude with her, she is only trying to help him and all I’ve ever done is try to help you. Kidd says he knows, the tag title shot is cool, but I could have gotten it on my own, I didn’t need you to go to JBL for it. Natalya says Kidd should be saying thank you. Kidd says he appreciates it, but I’m just letting you know that I could have gotten this on my own. I have to go find ol’ Sami Zayn and go over some tag team strategy, you know, that’s what happens in these tag matches. Kidd walks off.
Back from commercial, we see a black and white, silent movie style promo from Aiden English & Simon Gotch, now known as the Vaudevillians. English says to Gotch that he is so excited, I declare that we will take the WWE by storm. Gotch agrees and says that the very first step they must take is winning the NXT Tag Team Titles. English says that is a fantastic idea because we are the Vaudevillians, the best thing to ever be. Gotch says they are the best thing ever, in both entertainment, sports and sports-entertainment. They shake hands and laugh to close the segment.
