Live! from Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida
» We are ready for a brand new episode of WWE NXT coming to you live from Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. As the official NXT opening video package begins to play across the screen you can hear the lively crowd cheer and chant, ready for some wrestling action! As the video package comes to an end the camera takes us inside Full Sail as we see a packed crowd tonight. The camera pans around once more until they land on the commentary team of Tony Dawson and William Regal as they introduce us to yet another brand new exciting episode of NXT.
» The show kicks off with NXT Commissioner Dusty Rhodes in the ring talking about how momentous today is now that NXT is now on worldwide television and how it;s now two hours. He also mentions that now the world can see the future of WWE and he couldn't be prouder of all the divas and superstars in the back. He is soon interrupted by none other than Stephanie McMahon who begins to congratulate him on NXT expanding however, not to get comfortable. She mentions that he has been absent as a commissioner for NXT and he needs to step it up or run the risk of being replaced. She mentions that The Shield started in NXT and that Dusty needs to clean things up a bit for the good of the future of WWE. She once again states that she's watching him very closely and she can't wait to see what he has in store for NXT's future as the show goes into a short commercial break.
» We are welcomed back to NXT when the cameras quickly take us to the backstage area where we see a group of medical personnel attending to Sami Zayn who is seen knocked out cold on the floor, seemingly a victim of what looks to be some sort of backstage attack. The medical team continue to work on Zayn as NXT heads to the ring for the opening match…
Aiden English vs. Mickie Keegan
- The opening contest for NXT sees the first ever man to transition from the theatre to the world of sports entertainment, Aiden English take on Mickie Keegan. English makes his entrance with the spotlight on him, showing off his singing chops, proclaiming that he will win this match. The two lock up and Aiden gets the upperhand almost instantly and remains in control of the match. Aiden shows off his skill as a wrestler and quickly puts Keegan away with his finisher. Post match English grabs a microphone and sings about how he won his match.
» The cameras take us to the backstage area where we see Sylvester LeFort walking around backstage. He knocks on a door and out comes "Big Cass" Colin Cassidy. Sylvester tells him he needs to speak to him about something very important. He tells Colin to follow him as this conversation needs to be held in private. Once the two get to a private place LeFort asks Cassidy to join his team as he could make him a superstar if he left Enzo. Cassidy tells him no and before he can utter another word Scott Dawson and Alexander Rusev attack him from behind, beating him down to the floor before leaving. LeFort says that no one turns him down and gets away with it before fleeing the scene…
Alexander Rusev w/ Sylvester LeFort vs. Enzo Amore
- With Colin Cassidy attacked backstage Enzo Amore was left to fend for himself in this match alone against the much bigger Rusev who had Sylvester LeFort in his corner giving him the numbers advantage in this match as well. Enzo takes it to Rusev early on in the match, exploding with hard forearms, trying to get the advantage of the match early on and letting out his anger at Rusev attacking Colin Cassidy before the match. However, Rusev's strength gets the better of Amore as he's tossed halfway across the ring like a rag doll. Rusev remains in control until he hoists Amore up onto his shoulders which allows Amore to roll him up, but only for a two count! Amore quickly gets up trying to follow up on the move, running against the ring ropes but LeFort grabs him by his foot! Amore turns around and goes to grab at LeFort but in doing so he's made a fatal mistake. Rusev comes up behind Amore and delivers a German Suplex to give himself the win!
» After the match comes to an end Sylvester LeFort climbs into the ring to celebrate with his client Alexander Rusev. LeFort takes the microphone and begins to proclaim that this is just the beginning for Rusev and The Legionnaire which includes Scott Dawson. He proclaims that his clients are destined for greatness and all of NXT should be worried.
» The cameras head backstage as we see WWE Diva Summer Rae alongside Sasha Banks in the divas locker room. Summer begins to tell Sasha how glad she is that she took her advice she gave her and she finally woke up. She tells Sasha how she's flattered that she's following in her footsteps, doing things to make sure she gets noticed and tonight the two of them will reign supreme over Emma and Paige.
Emma & Paige vs. Sasha Banks & Summer Rae
- Emma and Summer Rae start out the match but Summer quickly hightails it to her corner and tags in Sasha Banks before Emma can even touch her, garnering loud jeers from the crowd. Sasha enters the ring and locks up with Emma and gains control by stepping on Emma's feet, allowing her to lock in a headlock.

Alex Riley comes in and tells of Curt Hawkins, telling him to leave Devin alone. The two men get in each others face and Hawkins challenges Riley to a match later tonight which Riley agrees to.

Alex Riley vs. Curt Hawkins

» As NXT returns from a commercial break we see a very angry Sami Zayn inside the ring he calls out Bo Dallas who he says attacked him backstage earlier tonight. Bo Dallas comes out and he says he did no such thing and would never hurt him as he's his friend. Sami demands a match with Bo right here right now but Bu claims he's still recovering from an injury he obtained at SummerSlam Axess which brings out NXT Commissioner Dusty Rhodes. Dusty says that as soon as Bo is healed from his injury Sami will get his match against Bo but as for tonight he's not letting him compete but next week he'll face off against visiting WWE Superstar, Fandango.
Adrian Neville and Corey Graves © vs. The Ascension
- After weeks and weeks of sneak attacks The Ascension finally gets a shot at the tag team titles. Corey Graves and Rick Victor start things out for their respective teams with Corey gaining advantage early on after locking up, overpowering Rick Victor. Victor manages to slip away and tag in O'Brian who comes in like a house of fire, knocking down Graves with hard clotheslines and finally with a big boot. Conor remains in control thanks to his size advantage until Corey Graves crawls through his legs, tagging in his partner Adrian Neville. Neville uses his speed and agility to one up O'Brian until O'Brian catches Neville when he leaps off the top rope, slamming him down to the mat. Neville manages to crawl away from Conor after delivering a hard enziguri and goes to tag in Corey Graves, but Graves drops down off the ring apron, waves at Neville and walks away leaving Neville to fend for himself. This allows The Ascension to hit The Fall of Man to pick up the win and become the new NXT Tag Team champions!
