They show highlights of the awesome 2/3 falls match from last week. Renee Young is in the ring for an interview with Sami Zayn.
Here we are a week later, how do you feel? All Sami remembers was the end result, where Cesaro was the better man. He doesn’t know when he will encounter Antonio again. His focus is to become the next NXT champion. This brings NXT Champion, Bo Dallas. Dallas says just because a few people on the internet said you had a good match, doesn’t mean you did. Zayn tells Renee he’ll take it from here. Bo says Zayn injured him at SummerSlam Axxess. Zayn has a lot of work to do before he can be like Bo. They go on to have a Bo and Boo debate.

Victor and O’Brian immediately attack Adrian. Graves walks down and tries to fight them off as his ribs are taped up. The Ascension hits their double-teaming finisher. The show ends with O’Brian and Victor standing tall.
I stated last week that The Ascension needed to rise up and challenge for the NXT Tag Team titles. What do you know? I’m glad the feud is starting right away.
Breeze’s matches haven’t been very long, so I was hoping for his match to be longer tonight, but no.
I think the right way to settle the feud between Paige, Emma and Summer Rae is to have a triple threat match for the title. And, have the match go longer than ten minutes. By the way Sasha Banks looked when Summer talked to her, it sounds like she may be Paige’s next contender.
I like the set-up for a feud between the teams of Colin Cassady and Enzo Amore, and Scott Dawson and Alexander Rusev.
It appears Bo Dallas is turning heel as no one Bo-lieves in him. Perfect booking in my opinion. Now Zayn can rise up and challenge for the title, and Bo has a character change at the same time.
As I said, I’m really glad to see The Ascension finally rising. But, what really made me mad was that Neville vs. O’Brian was only 5 minutes long! What the heck?! Hopefully things improve.
Next Week’s Main Event: Sami Zayn vs. Jack Swagger
