Jim Ross and William Regal came out for commentary so this is when the taping began. Episode One: *Bo Dallas (Bo Rotunda) pinned Rick Victor with a spear. *Connor O'Brian & Kenneth Cameron, The Ascension, beat CJ Parker & Mike Dalton. *Damien Sandow refused to wrestle, cutting a promo about it. Pretty much what we've seen on Smackdown introducing the character. *Tyson Kidd beat Michael McGillicutty in what I thought was the best match of the night. McGuillicuty looked way better than I can ever remember him. Week Two - *Seth Rollins pinned someone who's name I didn't catch. It sounded like Hero. (Not Chris Hero, wasn't him). Collins cut a promo saying he was taking WWE and NXT over. *Jinder Mahal beat Jason Jordan. Awful. *Leo Kruger beat Aiden English. Leo cut a heel promo afterward saying that he was the lion of NXT and was on the prowl. *Richie Steamboat pinned Rick Victor. Rick Steamboat was at ringside. Richie looked and worked like his dad. I don't want to put unfair pressure on him but he's real good. *Antonio Cesaro beat a name I didn't catch. *Derrick Bateman beat Johnny Curtis. Apparently these two are never getting off NXT. Episode Three: *WWE Tag Team champion R Truth beat Epico. *Sofia Cortez (The blonde from Tough Enough who was eliminated due to a knee issue) beat Paige. *Seth Rollins beat Camacho (with Hunico). The heels worked over Rollins and Bo saved him so Seth is a babyface. *Jake Carter & Corey Graves beat CJ Parker & Rick Rogers. *Kassius Ohno beat Mike Dalton. Hero cut a promo about knocking people out. *Richie Steamboat beat Leo Kruger. Steamboat was bleeding. Krueger laid him out. Week Four: * Jinder Mahal beat Derrick Bateman. He kept it on Bateman until the referees held him off. *The Ascension beat The Usos. *Bray Wyatt (Husky Harris) beat Aiden English. *Hunico & Camacho & Michael McGillicutty beat Seth Rollins & Bo Dallas & Tyson Kidd. Dark: *WWE World champ Sheamus beat Alberto Del Rio.
