WWE taped 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:
Tony Dawson and William Regal on commentary.
* Conar O’Brian defeated Oliver Grey via a leg drop.
* Wade Barrett defeated Alex Riley via Bull Hammer.
* Garrett Dylan and Denton Blackwell went to a no contest when The Shield attacked both of them. Dusty came to the stage. Ambrose said that what he just saw is just a small taste of what The Shield is capable of. Rollins says they have taken over Raw, Smackdown, and now NXT and nothing can be done to do anything about it. Dusty said Rollins was supposed to take them to the promised land. Dusty said he is defending the NXT title against Corey Graves. Ambrose says that no one tells them what to do anymore. Dusty says when they are in his building he will tell them what to do. He says if Seth doesn’t defend he will strip him of the title. Rollins says Corey is a wrong that they can right. He tells Dusty to be careful what they should win for. Roman says if this is his house, he is paying The Shield’s rent.

The Shield triplepowerbombed Bo Dallas. Big E Langston’s music hit and he came to the ring. The Shield bailed to ringside.

Rollins hit the Shiranui on Big E, but Big E kicked out. He went for it again but Big E countered it into The Big End. The roster came out to celebrate and Triple H and Dusty raised Big E’s hands up in the air when he got to the stage. We have photos at this link.

* Trent Barreta defeated Leo Kruger via DQ. Kassius Ohno, in a suit and glasses, was on commentary with Luftman and Regal. After Trent hit a flipping senton to Leo on the outside and put him back in the ring, Ohno ran over and hit a rolling elbow to the back of Trent’s head and rolled Kruger in the ring. Kruger hit Kruger’s end for the win. Regal came over to check on Trent and the ref ended up reversing the decision, giving Trent the DQ win.
* The new NXT Champion Big E Langston came out. He takes a mic and says as the new NXT Champion, all of the fans are about to see a reign unlike any they have seen before. He welcomes them to the era of the 5, and chants it. Camacho comes to the stage and says that he and Big E have beef to settle. He said at first it was about the money and says he will get his boy back from Mexico and will take the title as well.
* Big E. Langson defeated Camacho with the Big End rather quickly. He then hit it again after the match for a five count. Crowd chanted for one more time and Big E obliged.
