Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Sami Zayn. Zayn says he feels like ever since Tyson Kidd showed up in NXT, we’ve just seen bit-by-bit, more and more of his true colors and now we’re seeing the real Tyson Kidd, the conceited, self-absorbed, shouvanistic coward that is the true Tyson Kidd. The Tyson Kidd that is clearly insecure about being overshadowed by his wife’s success and I just feel like if you would have a couple months ago that I would be wrestling Tyson Kidd, I would have been overjoyed and now, its just really about embrassing him and that’s what I’m gonna do tonight.

Return Grudge Match: Alexa Bliss vs. “The Boss” Sasha Banks

Before the match, we see an inset promo from Bliss, who says that the last time she was in the ring with Sasha, Sasha felt the sting from my bling and they held my hand up in victory. You even had your BFFs by your side, but you underestimated me because I’m just so small and so nice. But tonight, you’re alone and you’ll see lightning strike twice.

Sasha celebrates her win afterward.

Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Tyler Breeze. Breeze says that all anyone does these days is rush. They rush to the supermarket to get the best deals, they rush to the mall to get the best shoes and now, everyone is rushing to the conclusion that I don’t want to take on that “uggo”, Adrian Neville and become NXT champion? These things take time. The Versace Mansion wasn’t built in a day. As I said a few weeks ago, I suffered a tragic, hand-modeling accident and I couldn’t even compete that night. But, lucky for everyone, I have my agent drawing up the contract for the match between Neville & myself as we speak. But, as we all know, legal contracts aren’t drawn up in a couple of hours. So, if everyone is going through “Breeze withdrawal”, let’s take another exclusive look at my MTV Euro Music Award-winning music video. Prince Pretty out!

We see footage of Tyler Breeze filming his music video.


We see video from last week when Tyson Kidd accidentally knocked down his wife, Natalya, then rolled up a distracted Sami Zayn to get the win in the main event tag match. We see video from backstage after last week’s NXT when Natalya blew off cameras asking for comments as to what happened.

Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Tyson Kidd. Kidd says Devin is wasting his time asking about my wife and my family. I already know when you talk to Sami Zayn later tonight that you are not gonna ask about his family, or what his brothers & sisters got for Christmas, so why are you wasting my time with a question like that? You should be talking about the fact that I defeated Sami Zayn in our tag match last week and that I’m on a roll. As for my wife, Natalya, she is a former WWE Divas Champion, she can take care of herself. In that ring, accidents happen, but tonight, when I beat Sami Zayn, that won’t be an accident.

Adam Rose vs. Jason Jordan

Before the match, we see an inset promo from Jordan, who says that he was recently told that his tag partner, Tyle Dillinger, is injured. How? I don’t know, but I know that the last time he was seen, he was partying with the Rosebuds. Guess I’m gonna have to figure out how to get to the bottom of this.

Rose evades Jordan early. Rose backs Jordan into the corner and rubs his chest. Rose leaps into Jordan’s arms and hits a side headlock takeover. Jordan gets out and hits a gut shot in the corner. Rose headscissors Jordan and sends him into his posterior multiple times. Jordan with a gut kick and a back club. Rose sent off the turnbuckles. Jordan with a series of right hands, followed by a running shoulder to the ribs and a Northern Lights for a nearfall. Dropkick by Jordan for a nearfall. Chinlock applied, crowd wills on Rose. Jordan gets distracted by the fans chants, allowing Rose to pepper Jordan with a series of jabs, followed by a big right hand. Inverted atomic drop, followed by a spinning neckbreaker. Jordan runs into a boot in the corner, then Rose goes to the middle rope and hits a rana. Running forearm in the corner, then Rose does the “Choo-Choo” motion and hits a Bronco Buster.

Party Foul by Rose for the win.

Winner: Adam Rose by pinfall (The Party Foul)

Rose celebrates with his Rosebuds afterwards.


Backstage, Devin Taylor interviews Kalisto. Kalisto says he prefers to talk about his future victories instead of his losses. The Vaudevillains walk in and show a sign to Kalisto that asks “Where’s your partner?” Kalisto says that he & El Local parted ways. Gotch pats Kalisto on the head, then Kalisto says he can find a new tag partner and face you two next week. What’s the matter, speechless? Kalisto runs off as the Vaudevillains ponder what he said.
