WWE NXT for February 21, 2013:

Post match, Kruger laid out Gabriel then took one of Kidd’s crutches and threw it before going to the back.
* Aksana defeated Emma via Spinebuster.
* Corey Graves and Conor O’Brian in a #1 contender’s match went to a no contest when The Shield interfered. Dean Ambrose took a mic and says this is a reminder to keep your guard up and this is what happens when you are brought to justice by The Shield. Seth Rollins said things are going to get better but before they do, they have got to get worse. Ask Sheamus, John Cena, or Ryback how bad things can get. Reigns said they are always watching. No one is outside of their reach and they better believe in The Shield.
* Ricardo Rodriguez and World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio came out. He calls everything here fantastic and that both he and Ricardo know that there is a lot of talent here at NXT and he is sure that backstage they have the next World Champion or WWE champion. Antonio Cesaro’s music hits. He says they for sure backstage have the greatest US champion of all time Antonio Cesaro. He would like to challenge them to a champion vs champion match tonight. Dusty says that Cesaro can’t make the matches but he will give him a champion vs champion match and brings out the NXT Champion Big E. Langston.
* Big E Langston defeated Antonio Cesaro via DQ when Corey Graves ran out and attacked Big E. Conor then ran out and also attacked Big E. Big E made a comeback and laid out both of them with the Big End before counting five. He hit another one on Corey for good measure followed up by one for Conor.
The next NXT taping will be at Full Sail on February 21st with Randy Orton scheduled to wrestle Damien Sandow at the show.
NOTE: Not sure if all of the stuff with ADR, Cesaro & Big E will make air or not. NXT seems to be weird with how they air things like that.
