WWE taped four episodes of NXT on Thursday night from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Wrestling News World'sScott Brooks was in attendance and filed the following report:
Dash Wilder defeated Chad Gable in the dark match via a pin with his feet on the ropes. Gable was billed from Minneapolis, MN and had amateur wrestling gear. Crowd chanted Kurt Angle at him at first but got into him as the match progressed. Not sure what this means for The Mechanics as a team because Scott Dawson was not with Dasb.

Tyson Kidd comes out (wearing a Sami Zayn shirt) and says Zayn squandered every chance. Zayn asks if he got Nattie's permission to come out here. Zayn insults Kidd being on Total Divas. Kidd says he would rather be on there than a Total Loser like Zayn. Kidd says maybe he is not good enough to be here. Kidd says maybe he can sell pictures losing to other people and Kidd calls him the most pathetic person he has ever met. Zayn says he doesn't live in the past he lives in the now and not only is good enough to be here but he is good enough to beat him tonight. Kidd says as long as Regal is fine with it he is good. He says Sami Zayn's Road to Redemption hits a roadblock tonight.
