Tonight’s episode of WWE NXT is presented from the WWE Capitol Wrestling Center in Orlando, Florida.
Stay tuned for the results and be sure to keep the discussion going by chatting it up in the comments!
- William Regal started the show to talk about his tenure in NXT and say he doesn’t think he can do the job as well anymore as everyone deserves. Karrion Kross and Scarlett came out to say they knew this was going to happen. Kross wants Regal to say Kross has control over this place through chaos and then to leave. Samoa Joe then came out to say Regal wanted to talk to him. Regal then officially offers him the position of General Manager of NXT. Joe says “absolutely not.” He reveres Regal too much to take his role, but he offers him another solution of basically being his enforcer. Regal says he has some conditions (Joe can’t be a competitor, nor can he lay a hand on anyone unless provoked). Joe accepts and asks Kross why he’s still in the ring. Kross and Scarlett reluctantly leave.
- Breezango defeated Imperium by pinfall. After the match, Imperium laid out Tyler Breeze and Fandango.
- Backstage, Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly were fighting. William Regal booked them for an unsanctioned match at Great American Bash and individual matches for next week. Samoa Joe then helped security break things up, by choking out Cole.
- Kushida’s open challenge for the Cruiserweight Championship is answered by Trey Baxter (formerly known as Blake Christian). Kushida retained the title by submission. After the match, Kyle O’Reilly then challenged Kushida to a match for next week.
- Ted DiBiase presented LA Knight with the Million Dollar Championship. Knight spoke about how DiBiase was a fixture of his childhood and thanked him, but then said he doesn’t need him anymore and decked him. He’s the only true Million Dollar champion now! Cameron Grimes came out to make the save.
- Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai defeated Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter by pinfall.
- Io Shirai started to cut a promo about her return, but was interrupted by Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell. They double-teamed her until Zoey Stark came out to help.
- Tornado Tag Team Match: Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa defeated Grizzled Young Veterans by submission.
