WWE taped another three episodes of WWE NXT Thursday night from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Wrestling News World Orlando correspondent Scott Brooks was on hand for the taping and sent in the following results:
* Ring announcer was Summer Rae for episodes 1 & 3 and Chris Russo for episode 2. Byron Saxton and William Regal were on commentary and Jim Ross joined them for the main events of the episodes.
* Xavier Woods defeated Garrett Dylan via a rolling thunder-style clothesline.
They aired a video recapping Rollins and Mahal, with comments from Rollins.
* Jey Uso w/Jimmy Uso defeated Kenneth Cameron w/Conor O’Brian via Superkick.
* Dusty Rhodes and Rob Naylor are backstage when Rick Victor came up and said he can beat Rollins for the NXT Title. Dusty said they don’t give matches away and he needs to prove himself. Rick said he would do that.
* Big E. Langston squashed Chad Baxter. Langston hit his finisher again and got a 5 count after the Nell. He took a mic and said that matches won by 3 are normal. Big E is not normal. He said that his opponents will feel the pain of the five count. The crowd chanted for his finisher one more time and Big E obliged.
* Audrey Marie defeated Tamina Snuka when Tamina missed the Superfly Splash. Raquel Diaz came out and put an L on Tamina’s head.
Backstage, Briley Pierce was with Seth Rollins and said that he might be interested in tonight’s main event of Tyson Kidd vs. Michael McGillicutty. Rollins said he will face anyone because sooner or later everyone gets blacked out. Rick Victor walks up and says Rollins probably does not even know who he is. Rollins says he doesn’t know who he is. Victor slaps Seth very loudly and walks away. Rollins says to Briley he knows who that is. It’s Rick Victor and he has moved to the top of Seth’s blackout list.
* Michael McGillicutty defeated Tyson Kidd via McGillicutter.
* Backstage, Seth Rollins demands a match with Rick Victor next week otherwise he can’t be responsible for what happens to him. Dusty grants a match between the two. Rollins says Dusty won’t regret it, but Rick Victor will.
* They aired a video for Richie Steamboat telling how he wants the people to learn who he is and how he is different from his father.
* They also aired a video for Ohno.
* Trent Barreta defeated Johnny Curtis via Busaiku Knee.
* Paige defeated Alicia Fox via a Fisherman’s DDT.
* Conor O’Brian w/Kenneth Cameron defeated Jimmy Uso w/Jey Uso. Jey came in to check on his brother and The Ascension laid him out via a spinning wheel kick/leg sweep combo.
* In what was titled an NXT Spareing Session, Kassius Ohno defeated Joel Pettifor by putting him in a Cravate style neck-vice. Ohno said that was easy and wants the match restarted. He hit Joel with a rolling elbow and then put him in that vice again until Richie Steamboat made the save.

* Michael McGillicutty defeated Bo Dallas via McGillicutter.
