He whips Mojo but Mojo counters and hits a couple of splashes.

Winner – Mojo Rawley
Richard Reacts: They had no chance of following Cesaro and Sami Zayn and there wasn’t much to the match. This was probably what you would probably expect out of a developmental match but certainly not the norm down here at NXT.
They roll an Emma promo clip, building towards tonight’s NXT Women’s Championship match.

Winners & still NXT Tag Team Champions The Ascension
Richard Reacts: The Ascension is my favorite tag team in developmental and they’re ready for a main roster opportunity. They have it all and could really fit in great with the company’s tag team division.
They roll a promotional clip for Paige similar to one they ran earlier in the night for Emma. They’re doing a great job building the Women’s title match as a “big deal,” much more than WWE has ever done for their Divas Championship.
Ric Flair is shown sitting ringside with his daughter Charlotte (who is an NXT diva). Regal doesn’t even like to talk about Flair because his liver starts to shake.
