WWE is pleased to announce that NXT has been picked up as an official second brand of the WWE. In the past few years, NXT has surpassed every expectation by the fans and by WWE itself. Providing some of the best matches WWE has long seen, and some of the hardest working sports-entertainers in the industry today, NXT really is a glimpse into the future of sports-entertainment. The future is here. With show extensions to two hour episodes, and special supershow events once every 6 weeks, NXT is prepared to expand and show the whole world what it is capable of!
In line with this promotion, NXT will be far more accessible on an international scale, with new TV network deals and a full touring schedule! This is a new era of professional wrestling and sports entertainment. In striving to hold the best roster in the world, with athletes such as Canada's Sami Zayn, England's Adrian Neville and Japan's Hideo Itami, NXT is committed to hiring the most exciting athletes possible.
It is with that that we are proud to announce two of the best-known athletes to hold WWE contracts for the first time EVER; AJ Styles and Samoa Joe! On top of this, NXT has also signed an exclusive deal with "The Whole F'N Show" Rob Van Dam. WWE Superstars Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro and Zack Ryder will also be moved to NXT to bolster the roster. To make room for this innovation, WWE has drafted all female wrestlers to the main WWE roster to create the best women's division of all time!
THIS IS A REVOLUTION. THIS IS THE NXT GENERATION!

William Regal enters Full Sail University to a huge reaction. After briefly shaking some hands and waving, he gets to business, getting a microphone and standing behind a case containing the NXT Championship, The NXT Tag Team Championships and the brand new NXT Wildfire Championship! "Tonight is a huge night in the history of NXT. It is with great pleasure that I announce that WWE has promoted NXT to be an official second brand. With new merchandise deals, new touring opportunities and network television deals, NXT will be in more homes than ever before! With these opportunities comes a wealth of new talent, such as Zack Ryder, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston, who are signing exclusive NXT contracts! This is a new generation and a new era of NXT, and as such ALL NXT titles WILL be vacated and we will begin fresh!"
Regal is cut off by Seth Rollins who makes his first appearance in NXT in years. He enters to a chorus of boos. "Regal, Regal, Regal.... You are correct in EVERY aspect! This is a new generation and a new era in NXT. This is MY era! Each and every person in this arena paid to be here to see me! Since leaving NXT, I have become a bonafide, genuine superstar and NOBODY can deny it! I am the money-maker, I am simply the best. Which is what brings me out here. You say you are vacating the NXT titles and I know exactly why! You, William Regal, you are going to be awarding me that very NXT Championship! I am the flagship star of this brand and I WILL lead NXT to be bigger and better than EVER before!"
Suddenly "I'M HERE TO SHOW THE WORLD!" blasts through the speakers and Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring to a massive ovation, cutting off Seth Rollins, who looks pissed. "Let me get this right, Rollins... you want to be awarded the NXT Championship? You want to get it handed to you on a silver platter? I can tell you one thing, that isn't going to happen! Why, I hear you ask? That's pretty simple, Seth. You say you are a bonafide superstar since leaving NXT? All you've shown to me is that you betray your friends, hide behind your Authority buddies and cower from every fight you've ever had! You want to know why you won't be NXT Champion? Because I am here and I will be the first NXT Championship! Unlike you, I will fight and scratch my way to every opportunity, which is why I propose me against you tonight, in that ring, for the vacant NXT Championship!"
Seth Rollins is pissed and starts to yell at Ziggler that it won't happen because Ziggler doesn't deserve to stand in the same ring as Rollins! GM William Regal cuts Seth Rollins off and reminds him who is in charge. He says that he will NOT be handing Rollins anything and if he wants the NXT Title he can EARN IT! He announces that Seth Rollins WILL face Dolph Ziggler tonight for the NXT Championship!

Sami Zayn celebrates until the camera backstage to Curtis Axel, who is being interviewed. He is asked on his thoughts of being drafted to NXT. "My thoughts? This is an opportunity like no other. You all know who I am. I am the son of Mr Perfect himself, one of the best damn wrestlers the world has EVER seen! His blood runs through my veins. But you want me to let you in on a little secret? As great as my father was, I am leaps and bounds better! NOBODY will stand between me and the glory I will reach! NXT is the place to be. The best wrestlers in the world are here and I will beat each and every single one of them! Why? Because I am Curtis Axel and I am BETTER than Perfect!"
Bo Dallas enters the ring to a mixed reaction. He smiles and thanks the audience and does a victory lap around the ring before entering it with a microphone. "Ladies and gentlemen, I am Bo Dallas! It's LOVELY to be here before you all, as your mentor and somebody you can all look up to! You see before you a man who lives his dream! A man who shows you that ANYTHING is possible and YOU can do it to! I know each and every one of you can reach for that brass ring and live your dreams too.... and ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BO-LIEVE!!! Tonight I will give you a demonstration in this open challenge, as I face and defeat ANY competitor who chooses to accept my challenge and I will show them that with a lot of hard work and bo-lieving, they can ALMOST be as good as me!"
"WOO WOO WOO, YOU KNOW IT!" Zack Ryder makes his huge return and enters the arena to a thunderous response, accepting Bo Dallas' open challenge!
Exhibition Match: Bo Dallas vs. Zack Ryder A decent match featuring lots of taunting and comedy spots. Bo Dallas offers to shake hands, then attacks Ryder and beats him down. He goes for the Bo-Dog, but Ryder pushes him away, nails him with a Broski Boot, then follows it up with the Rough Ryder for the win! Winner: Zack Ryder via pinfall (4:58)
A hype video for Hideo Itami plays featuring highlights of his matches so far in NXT. It ends saying that "Destiny Is Unrbeakable".
Cesaro and Tyson Kidd are backstage with Natalya when they are interviewed and asked about their match tonight with The Lucha Dragons. Tyson Kidd answers: "Our match tonight is with two kids in halloween costumes that like to play "The Floor is Lava". Cesaro and I are two of the best wrestlers in the world today. Fact. Lucha Dragons don't belong in the NXT ring. Fact. Once Cesaro and I embarrass these two idiots tonight, we WILL go on the become NXT Tag Team Champions! FACT!"
Kofi Kingston is seen sitting backstage when Evan Bourne surprises him by walking up and saying "I'm back!". They laugh and hug each other.

Winners: Cesaro & Tyson Kidd via pinfall (11:23)
Corey Graves is seen backstage, sitting alone in a dark corridor. He looks at his arms and then into the camera. "Each and every tattoo tells a story. Every scar tells of a struggle; of a fight to survive.. I am a man of many stories. I could tell you a story of broken hearts; broken dreams and broken bones. I could tell you where I've been, what I've accomplished and where I am going. But personally, I don't like stories. I like demonstrations. I WILL demonstrate to the entire NXT roster what I am capable of and what I will achieve. I will not talk the talk, I WILL get in your face and PROVE myself with my actions! I AM THE REAL DEAL! When you step into the ring with Corey Graves, you have two simple options... you tap out, or you black out!"
Sami Zayn is backstage with an interviewer who asks for his opinion of the renewed and rebooted NXT. He begins to say that every day is a new opportunity to prove himself to the world, until he is interrupted by Brian Kendrick. "Sami Zayn, I've heard a lot about you. Everyone has been saying your name. It's all I ever hear. Zayn this, Zayn that. Let me tell you something.... I DON'T believe the hype. You're nobody. You're nothing. You haven't proven yourself to me yet. To me you're still a punk kid pretending to be a superstar. You are looking at somebody who has proven himself! Soon enough you will be pulling curtains where you should be, and you will be saying "Mr. Kendrick, Sir, would you like sugar in your coffee". You will never amount to what I have achieved. I am THE Brian Kendrick, and you WILL remember that name!"
Exhibition Match: Tyler Breeze vs. Rob Van Dam A solid match between the two, with fans mixed between cheering both of them. Breeze slaps RVD in the face and finds any way to cheat to get an advantage throughout the match.

Winner: Rob Van Dam via pinfall (7:11)
Rob Van Dam stands in the ring to a huge ovation. He celebrates on the ringposts then gets a microphone. "I've been hearing some people say that I'm past my prime. That I should retire. You know what I have to say to those people? Screw you! The day I feel like I can't beat the best wrestlers in the world, THAT'S the day I will hang my boots up. As for now? I am STILL the Whole Damn Show and I am here to stay in NXT! Any superstars in the back who think I need to reply, I challenge you to step into the ring with me, because I can guarantee two things will happen to you if you do! First, I WILL beat you. Second, I WILL smoke your ass!"
Kevin Owens is seen walking backstage when an interviewer approaches him. He asks Owens what he plans to achieve in the new, rebooted NXT. "What do I plan to achieve? I'll put it simply. I will step into that ring, I will beat the crap out of whoever they put in their with me, I will tear them in half and I will destroy them. At the end of the night, the referee will raise my arm in the air. Rinse. Repeat. It's as simple as that. I came to NXT for a fight, and I came here to win!"
Owens storms off, leaving the interviewer a bit confused. As he walks off, Finn Balor is seen standing in the shadows in the background staring at Owens before backing away into another corridor.
Exhibition Match: Adrian Neville vs. Xavier Woods A quick-paced fight with lots of reversals and high-flying action. They fight back-and-forth, with fans getting behind Woods as the match goes on. Eventually, Neville manages to reverses a springboard attempt from Woods into an inverted DDT. He follows it up with the Red Arrow to get the pinfall victory! Winner: Adrian Neville via pinfall (8:30)
Adrian Neville throws Woods from the ring and tells him to get his ass out of Neville's arena. He gets a microphone. "I hope each and every one of you was watching closely in that match. I am the best wrestler in NXT. I am the best wrestler in the damn world! It should have been ME in the NXT Championship match tonight, not Ziggler or Rollins. I will come here and I will beat each and every person on the NXT roster to prove to GM Regal that I am the man! The fact is, NOBODY in this company can stand up to me because I am simply the best high-flyer the wrestling business has EVER seen!"
Suddenly cryptic music hits with muttering words, sirens, static and more. This goes on for several seconds as Neville stands annoyed and confused staring up the ramp. All of a sudden, the video clears and one word is seen on the screen.... "PHENOMENAL"
AJ Styles' music hits and he walks out onto the stage with his vest/hoodie covering his face. He bursts into his signature pose and the fans go crazy for him. He takes a moment to look around the crowd, smiling. He makes his way to the ring and gets straight into Neville's face. They stare down and mouth off at each other. Suddenly, Neville snaps and goes to hit Styles, who ducks under Neville's punch and nails him with a Pele Kick, sending him from the ring. AJ Styles poses on the turnbuckle and stares down at Neville, who holds his head as he backs up the ramp, mouthing "This isn't over!".
NXT Championship: Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins An amazing match between two of the best young stars in the business. They continuously fight back-and-forth, with dozens of close calls and near falls. Ziggler nearly hits the Zig-Zag, but Rollins escapes. Rollins goes for a boot, but Ziggler ducks under it and hits a Zig-Zag, but only gets a two-count. Rollins complains to the referee that he hurt his leg and medical staff run to the ring as Ziggler looks worried. The doctor's look at him and get a stretcher into the ring, but Rollins refuses it, and says he will walk out. They help him up and he goes to leave. Ziggler holds the ropes open to help him out, but Rollins suddenly breaks free and boots Ziggler in the head! He follows it up by hitting a Curb Stomp and pins Ziggler for the win! Winner and NEW NXT Champion: Seth Rollins via pinfall (14:27)
The referee and medical staff abuse Rollins for his actions, but he doesn't care. He stands tall in the ring and demands the referee raise his arm in the air. The referee refuses, so Rollins instead stands on the ringpost and raises the NXT Champion in the air, smiling as fans throw rubbish at him as the show ends!
Last Edit: Mar 4, 2015 21:57:58 GMT -5 by Hurricane
With Rollins crowned as the new NXT Champion under heavily controversial circumstances, what will GM Regal and Dolph Ziggler have to say? Kevin Owens will be in action and Corey Graves makes his return! Perhaps the most exciting news, AJ Styles will make his NXT debut and he WILL be in action! Plus AirBoom challenge the always vicious Vaudevillains in a tag team contest! Tune in to NXT for all this and more!
Not sure if I like the stripping of the titles, mainly because Kevin Owens is such as boss and I would have liked to see how you handle his reign. Rollins/Ziggler should be a good one. Good win for Zayn, and I like he reemergence of Kruger. Never liked the Adam Rose character. AxelMania running wild on NXT, I hope he gets a push. Ryder over Dallas is good, hopefully Ryder finds success in NXT. Push Kidd & Cesaro to the moon! Fact! Great promo from Graves, I'm a big fan of his. Prince Pretty needs to get revenge on RVD, so hopefully this leads to more. Owens is a boss. Heel Neville is interesting, and a feud with AJ Styles is sure to be awesome. Rollins winning the championship is good, interested to see where he goes from here. All in all a great show, keep it up.
The show starts with new NXT Champion Seth Rollins making his way to the ring. He stands on the ramp, smirking while raising the NXT Championship in the air. He enters the ring and retrieves a microphone. "Welcome the the next generation! Welcome to MY generation! Last week, I told each and every one of you that I am THE MAN in NXT, that I would become the NXT Champion! None of you believed me, but look at me now! I stand here before you, just like I promised, as the NXT Champion! I am THE MAN. I am the one you all pay to see, I am the main event, I am the next generation! Last week I proved to everybody that I am the best, and now you will learn not to doubt me!"
GM William Regal enters the arena and cuts off Rollins, who looks annoyed. Regal wastes no time in getting a microphone. "You're the best? Is that what you think!? I think you're a bloody coward. You couldn't handle Dolph Ziggler last week, so you cheated to win! Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion due to your actions and is not cleared to compete tonight, but I promise you he WILL get another shot at you! As for tonight, that's a different story. I SHOULD strip you of the bloody title for your actions, but that would be too easy! Instead, I'm making you defend the title you "earned" against the man who made his triumphant return last week! It will be Seth Rollins vs. Rob Van Dam!"
Seth Rollins smirks and cuts Regal off. "That's your punishment? That's how you teach me a lesson? I will face Rob Van Dam tonight and I will crush his skull into the ground just like I did Dolph Ziggler. I KNOW I am the best and I KNOW I can beat ANYBODY. Rob Van Dam is a leader of the last generation and tonight I will lead NXT into a new era by sending RVD into retirement. After tonight, EVERYBODY will know that I AM the future, and as far as RVD goes... after tonight Seth Rollins will be The Whole F'N' Show!"
Exhibition Match Xavier Woods vs. Corey Graves A solid match between the two. Some back-and-forth action in the first few minutes. Graves beats Woods down for a minute or two, until Woods mounts a comeback. He builds momentum, eventually going for a springboard move which Graves reverses into a stiff knockout clothesline. He locks on the Lucky 13 and forces Woods to tap out! Winner: Corey Graves via. submission (5:01)
Corey Graves stands over Xavier Woods and looks at the camera smiling sadistically. He grabs a microphone and slowly circles Woods, who lies in the ring. "Another day, another victim. Each person who steps into the ring with me will end up just like Xavier Woods. Broken. Beaten. They call me the Saviour of Misbehaviour for a reason. Because I don't care about how ANY of you feel! I don't give a damn. I don't care how much I hurt my opponent, how much I break their will and beat them down. All I care about is me. I will take out EVERYONE put in front of me and if I could offer any advice to those unfortunate souls that will be fed to me, it is STAY DOWN. I promise you, there are only two options for those who stand before me.... it's either tap out... or it's black out."
Rob Van Dam is seen preparing backstage and is approached by an interviewer who asks his thoughts on what Seth Rollins said about him earlier and his chance to become NXT Champion tonight. "You know, Rollins speaks his mind, which I appreciate. I like a guy who stands up and speaks what he believes, even if it steps on some toes. It's a shame that everything he says is a load of crap. Rollins may believe he is the best, and that I am a generation behind, but tonight I will show him how wrong he is. He says he will retire me tonight, I think the opposite will happen. Tonight, Rob Van Dam walks out as the new NXT Champion and tonight I shut Seth Rollins' mouth for good! I am and will ALWAYS be The Whole F'N' Show!"
Six-Man Tag Team Match Sami Zayn, Hideo Itami and Zack Ryder vs. Tyler Breeze, Leo Kruger and Bo Dallas A solid match with all six men keeping the action flowing with lots of fast-paced moves and sequences.

Winners: Samy Zayn, Hideo Itami and Zack Ryder via pinfall (9:57)
Enzo Amore and Big Cass are seen backstage. Enzo cuts a promo. "Yo, NXT, where you at? I'll tell you where I'm at. Big Cass and I are here to be the best! Look at the weird look in Cass' eyes. We ain't here to play games, we here to make waves! How you doin'!? We are here to show that the NXT tag division is SAWFFFTTT. We ain't soft. We are certified G's and we are bonafied studs and you CAN'T TEACH THAT! We here to cash checks and kick asses. Bada-boom..... REALEST GUYS IN THE ROOM!"
Adrian Neville is being interviewed in the locker room. He is asked about AJ Styles' debut and what it means in NXT. "What does AJ Styles coming to NXT mean? He's a big name, he's a popular guy. It can only be good for the company. The real question you should is is what does it mean to me. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I know what AJ Styles is capable of, he's a talented guy. However, I also know what I am capable of. I know that I am the best, without a shadow of a doubt. When it comes time to face AJ Styles, he will see exactly what I already know. That he has bit off far more than he can chew!"
Exhibition Match Kevin Owens vs. Chad Gable A very quick match. Gable extends his hand, offering to shake with Owens, who slaps it away. Owens proceeds to beat the hell out of Gable for a few minutes. He throws him over the ropes to the outside, slams him into barricades and into the apron. Gable tries to fight back, but it's no use, as Owens nails him with shot after shot, before hitting a huge belly-to-belly suplex. Owens briefly stares at the crowd and smiles before hitting a huge powerbomb to secure the win. Winner: Kevin Owens via. pinfall (5:16)
Curtis Axel is seen backstage smiling. An interviewer approaches and asks what he is so happy about. "That's a simple question really. I am happy because I am the most-talented, best-looking, most-impressive man in this entire company! I am the son of a legend, I am the image of perfection! I suppose I should spell it out for you, because you've never felt anything compared to the success I have. You see, a new day is dawning in NXT. This is the Day of Axel. Perfection runs in my blood, but at the end of the day, one thing is crystal clear.... I am BETTER than Perfect!"
The Brian Kendrick is seen in a locker room. "Tonight I have been given a great opportunity. Tonight I face "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles in his debut match in NXT! Am I excited!? You bet your ass I am. Tonight I get to humilate and embarrass this clown who thinks he can walk into MY company and use us as a stepping stone to greatness. I have sore news for AJ Styles. That ain't going to happen. Tonight, Mr. Styles, you're in for a rude awakening, because I will show you that you're a tiny fish in a giant pond. And from there, ALL eyes will be on me. I am.... THE..... Brian Kendrick, and you WILL remember that name!"
Exhibition Match: The Brian Kendrick vs. AJ Styles A slow start as they take in the fans massive response to Styles' debut. Kendrick mocks Styles' pose, which makes Styles attack him. They fight back and forth, with Kendrick cheating to gain an advantage. He beats Styles down before attempting The Sliced Bread #2, but Styles reverses it, hitting a pele kick. He hypes up the crowd before hitting Kendrick with the Styles Clash to get the win in his impressive debut! Winner: AJ Styles via. pinfall (6:23)
AJ Styles stands victorious in the ring. The camera cuts backstage to Adrian Neville, who was watching AJ Styles on a TV. He nods his head and chuckles as he walks off.
Tyler Breeze is backstage when an interviewer approaches him. He asks for Breeze's thoughts on losing two weeks in a row. "My thoughts? How the hell do you think I feel!? I am being cheated and screwed at every turn. I am the VIP of NXT. I am the A-lister, the main event, the star attraction. Tonight I had the match won, I hit Ryder with the Beauty Shot. He was finished. He was DONE. Ryder and his friends got lucky tonight, but I assure you, I WILL get even. He thinks he can come in and steal my party schtick. He is an imposter, I am the real deal. Ryder will soon learn not to mess with Tyler Breeze!"
Tag Team Match: AirBoom vs. The Vaudevillains A great match between the highflying faces and the advantageous, hard-hitting heels. The match goes back-and-forth for several minutes, with a few near falls. The Vaudevillains knock Bourne from the apron and double-team Kingston. Kingston fights back, throwing English from the ring and hitting Gotch with the Trouble in Paradise. He tags in Evan Bourne who nails a Shooting Star Press for the win! Winners: AirBoom via. pinfall (11:36)
Kingston and Bourne celebrate their win, but it is short-lived, as Cesaro and Tyson Kidd attack them from behind and beat them down. Cesaro hits a Super Uppercut on Kingston, then puts Bourne into the Giant Swing, swinging him right into a dropkick from Tyson Kidd. Natalya joins them in the ring, bringing Tyson Kidd a microphone as they stand over AirBoom.
"This is what happens when you compete in the same division as myself and Cesaro. You get beat, you get hurt, you get irrelevent. That's the circle of life. We are the best tag team in the world. Fact. We will be the first Tag Team Champions in the new and improved NXT. Fact. We WILL go down in history as the best tag team of ALL TIME! FACT!"
GM Regal enters the arena once again and cuts them off. He says he appreciates their guts, but warns them not to attack any of the superstars on his roster again. He announces that the main event next week will be Cesaro & Kidd vs. AirBourne for the NXT Tag Team Championships!
NXT Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Rob Van Dam An amazing match between two great athletes. There's dozens of great spots and sequences as they fight in and out of the ring, through the crowd and up the ramp. The crowd goes wild for every near fall. Rollins goes for a Curb Stomp, but RVD escapes and hits an enzuigiri. He follows it up with a Rolling Thunder and climbs up top for the Five Star Frog Splash, but Rollins rolls out of the ring. RVD goes outside to chase him, but Rollins nails him with the NXT Championship to earn a DQ loss! Winner: Rob Van Dam via. DQ (12:08)
Rollins hits RVD with the NXT Championship two more times, then rams him into the fan barricade. He throws RVD into the ring and circles him like a shark circling it's prey. He continuously nudges RVD with his foot, knocking him to the floor. He yells "Who do you think you are" at RVD, then walks to the other side of the ring, signalling for the Curb Stomp. He runs to hit it on RVD, but is stopped when Dolph Ziggler's music hits!
Rollins looks around and starts yelling at the entrance ramp for Ziggler to come fight. Ziggler instead comes from the crowd and he tackles Rollins and lays into him with punches. The crowd goes wild as he lays into Rollins, until Rollins manages to escape the ring and run up the ramp to escape Ziggler, who then helps RVD to his feet. He raises RVD's arm in the air as they stare down Rollins as the show ends!

Seth Rollins starts the show as he enters to a chorus of boos. He smiles and laughs and raises the NXT Championship in the air as he makes his way to the ring, microphone in hand. "You can boo me all you want, but I don't care, because deep down inside I know each and every single one of you wish that you could be me! I am a superstar, I am a champion. While you sit in your parent's basements and scour the internet for things to bitch about, I am out here making a fortune and building an empire. NXT is MY show. I am the god damned NXT Champion and I assure you I will be for a long, long time. Nobody can touch me on NXT! Rob Van Dam is a joke; he is irrelevent. And Dolph Ziggler? Heh. Dolph Zigger is.."
He is cut off by Dolph Ziggler, who appears on the big screen to a huge reaction. "Hey Seth! Remember me? I'm that guy that was kicking your ass until you decided you had to cheat. I remember you! You're the guy with no respect. No dignity. For the future, make sure you remember this; I WILL get even! You can run and you can hide all you want, but I WILL catch up to you. You can't escape me forever, and when I do get my hands on you, I will finish what you started and I WILL become the NXT Champion!"

Ziggler celebrates as the camera cuts backstage to AJ Styles who is with an interviewer. He asks AJ Styles his thoughts on finally signing with WWE and competing in NXT. "It's great to finally be here in WWE. I watched wrestling religiously as a kid, I always dreamed of standing in a WWE ring and now I'm here! But that isn't the end of my goals. I want to hold WWE gold. I want to be a Champion! That begins here in NXT. This brand has one of the best wrestling rosters of all-time and I'm here to show them why I am called "The Phenomenal One"! I am here to impress, I am here to win." Adrian Neville interrupts AJ Styles' interview. They briefly stand face-to-face until Neville begins to speak. "I'm sorry to break it to you, AJ, but you're not going to hold gold in NXT. You aren't going to win. Not while I'm around. You come in here like you're God's gift to wrestling. I'm going to bring you back down to earth. I WILL humble you, AJ.... then I will send you packing back to the bushleagues, back where you belong!"
Tyler Breeze is seen backstage approaching The Vaudevillains. He tells them that tonight they are teaming together to face off against Zack Ryder and The Realest Guys.

It's great to be here in NXT, but when I'm done with it, you'll be calling it NX-Z! I'm here to make a name and make an impact, and tonight I'll do that when myself and The Realest Guys beat that idiot Tyler Breeze and The Vaudevillains! This is my time, but in the mean time... take care, spike your hair! Woo Woo Woo.... YOU KNOW IT!"
Kevins Owens is seen sitting in the locker room backstage when he is approached by an interviewer, who asks him what he plans to achieve in NXT. "What do I plan to achieve? I don't plan anything. I do what I want, when I want to. I WAS the NXT Champion before I was wrongfully stripped in the "reboot". I WILL get my title back, and I don't care who I have to go through to get it! If you stand between my and my title, you will be destroyed. I am here to face the best... I am here to BEAT the best... I AM THE BEST. It's as simple as that."

I had him beat and I should be NXT Champion right now! Rolling, get your ass out here and stand before me like a man! I want my damn rematch!"
Seth Rollins enters to a chorus of boos. "Oh, Rob, how funny you are. You never had me beat. You can't beat me. NOBODY can beat me. You can talk crap, you can say and believe whatever you'd like, but the only fact that matters is that you're standing in that ring complaining, empty-handed. You are looking at the NXT Champion. Nothing you believe or say can change that. I am better than you RVD. As far as you telling me to come and face you like a man... wish granted! I'm not coming alone though!"
Rollins drops the microphone as Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury walk out behind him, rolling up their sleeves.

You wanted to fight RVD 3-on-1, but as soon as he gets back up you run away with your tail between your legs! I'm going to give you a fight you can't get away from... next week it will be Rob Van Dam and Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins, Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury! And if you get yourself disqualified or counted out Seth, I WILL strip you of the NXT Championship!"
After a commercial break, Bo Dallas is in the ring cutting a promo. "Ladies, gentlemen, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE! You CAN make things better! Take a stand, rise up and reach your potential! You only live once, so make the best of today! You can be all your dreamt you would be, YOU JUST HAVE TO BO-LIEVE! I BO-LIEVE IN ALL OF YOU! Tonight I will leave you in awe, I WILL inspire you! Tonight I will have an open challenge and I will show you what you can achieve if you set your mind to it! Whoever wants to face me, COME OUT NOW!"

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Ziggler/Rollins is going to be great. Good win for Axel, I hope he gets a real push. Itami for the save, sweet! Good win for Ziggler. Nice Neville/Styles segment, should be a great match. Axel costing Itami the match is smart, and I can't wait for this one to go down. Good Ryder promo. Ryder/Enzo/Cass is a great teaming, great win for Breeze and company, not big on the Vaudevillians, however. Good win for Rhyno, your promos for Dallas are great. Yes! Cesaro & Kidd win the titles! Love the team, hoping for big things from them in the future. Harper and Rowan's attack was great. Looking forward to more of this. Keep it up, bruh.
